For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:15 New American Standard Bible
For the most part, many of us were not born rich in the natural, or were given some type of inheritance from a rich parent or relative. As a result of this, you may think or believe that you are at a disadvantage. However, Jesus wants to assure you today that you are not and even if you did not have an inheritance in the natural, God the Father loves you so much that He was and is unwilling for you to go without one. This is one of the reasons He sent His Son Jesus to die for you. When Jesus died, God’s whole plan and reasoning was to provide a legal means for you to get back everything Adam lost in the garden and then some. The Father is always about more not less. The Father already had given everything over to Jesus and then He sent Jesus to die so that Jesus could then give everything to you in the form of an ETERNAL INHERITANCE. JESUS IS OUR ETERNAL INHERITANCE!!!
Now in order for a person to leave an inheritance they have to have something themselves first. Let’s find out what Jesus had and has.
“Everything the Father has is Mine. This is why I told you that He takes from what is Mine and will declare it to you.” Holman Christian Standard Bible John 16:15
So we see here how much Jesus had at the time He spoke this. EVERYTHING!! Everything the Father has Jesus says is His. Because God has made you joint heir with Jesus, what does that mean? EVERYTHING that Jesus has IS YOURS!!!!! Now the second part of the above scripture is referring to the Holy Spirit revealing to you and declaring to you all that Jesus has. In other words, the Holy Spirit will reveal that what once just belonged to Jesus is now yours!!!
When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. He will also declare to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, because He will take from what is Mine and declare it to you. Holman Christian Standard Bible John 16:13-14
This is a powerful revelation and this is not the only time that The Word reveals the job of the Holy Spirit regarding us believers.
Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who comes from God, so that we may understand what has been freely given to us by God. I Corinthians 2:12 Holman Christian Standard Bible
The Holy Spirit is responsible for helping you understand what has been FREELY given to us by The Father. So many times we have heard how we have to earn our blessings but it is important that we stick with The Word. If you were to go to a store to pick up some items and they told you well today we are giving a way a lot of free stuff, would you say, “Okay I will check that out after I go buy my stuff?” No! If you do it that way you may go in and pay money for something that you could get for free. The same applies here. We need to find out what Jesus has already provided for us so we don’t go out struggling and striving and working overtime to get something that Jesus has already bought, paid for and given to us. Its like trying to buy something you already have. Because Jesus died, you have an ETERNAL INHERITANCE.
Because Christ offered himself to God, he is able to bring a new promise from God. Through his death he paid the price to set people free from the sins they committed under the first promise. He did this so that those who are called can be guaranteed an inheritance that will last forever. In order for a will to take effect, it must be shown that the one who made it has died. A will is used only after a person is dead because it goes into effect only when a person dies. Hebrews 9:15 God’s Word Translation
Has Jesus died? YES!!! And is raised again to life. And because He died “His will” is now in effect for you and me and He has left us EVERYTHING He has. All that belongs to Jesus belongs to YOU! All of His health, all of His life, all of His joy, all of His Shalom. We could stop right there. Do you know all that is in Shalom? According to Strong’s Concordance, Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalem meaning to be complete, perfect and full. Man that is enough to shout about right there. But I told you before God the Father is always about more and so is Jesus. “So what else do you have for us Jesus???”
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 KJV
And of course there’s even more……..
.. Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. Revelation 5:12 KJV
That Lamb is Jesus and EVERYTHING He received from the Father is yours as a joint heir. So because of Jesus you receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. The Truth is JESUS HIMSELF is our ETERNAL INHERITANCE!!!!
This is Jesus’s ETERNAL INHERITANCE from The Father and now it is your ETERNAL INHERITANCE because of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen! Amen! And Amen!!!
All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!
