OUR INHERITANCE THROUGH THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION (Lenten 5)
I guess many of my readers have received an INHERITANCE as a result of a loved one who has passed away. I think in the past a Lawyer/Solicitor would sit down with all the various family members after the person has passed away, and read out from the departed person’s will what he/she has bequeathed to each person. We read in Eph. 1:11NLT Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an INHERITANCE FROM GOD, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.
Sadly, I have to write again here that through poor discipleship and lack of good teaching, many Believers do not realise what an inheritance they have NOW as a result of Christ’s death on the Cross. So in this Lenten period it is such an opportunity to reflect of this awesome truth. There may be some aspects of our inheritance that is written in the Will (The Word of God) we know, I somehow think there are many aspects we do not know. Equally some of the aspects of our inheritance will be knowledge, but not REVELATION.
I am going to list here “some” of the important aspects of our inheritance, and would encourage you to REFLECT & MEDIATE ON THESE VERSES.
Literally chew over every verse, look at it in many translations you can get your hands on, and pray HOLY SPIRIT TURN THE LIGHT ON.

AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON AND ON
For many Christians this is just information, but the more you REFLECT AND MEDITATE on these awesome truths they will BECOME EXPERENTIAL IN YOUR LIFE.
I understand that many American negro slaves could not believe they had been emancipated, and lived with a slave mentality until they died. May that not be our experience.
Your name is on every one of these aspects of the inheritance (and many more). all written in the Word of God.
MAY THIS INFORMATION BECOME REVELATION, MAY THE LOGOS WORD BECOME A PERSONAL RHEMA WORD TO YOU.
Make the most of these next few weeks of Lent right up until Easter, your life WILL BE CHANGED, YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN, TAKE EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR INHERITANCE, AND LEARN TO WALK IN IT.
