UNSEARCHABLE RICHES-OUR INHERITANCE

KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 1:11 KJV” In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will”:

We now look further into the unsearchable riches of Christ. Our key scripture informs us that every child of God has obtained an inheritance. This is seen in Acts 26:18, which says” To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. There is an inheritance among all them that are sanctified. The word sanctified means saints and refers to everyone who is born again. (Being made a Saint is an act of grace)

What is this inheritance? Eph 1:18 says “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints”. This verse tells us what the inheritance is. It is Christ inheritance or what he left for us. The inheritance is what the Lord achieved and gave to us. They are a lot, but I will attempt to list a few of them

1.Authority in His name (Philip 2:10, Matt 28:18)

2.His victory over sin and death (2nd Timothy 1:10, Rom 6:6)

3.Perfect access to the throne room of the father (Rom 5:2,)

4 His righteousness (2nd Corinth 5:21)

5 Angelic assistance (Heb 1:14)

6 Healing for our bodies (1st Pet 2:24)

7 Gift of eternal life (1st John 5:13)

8 Victory over Satan and his demons (Col 2:15)

9 Gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)

10.  Our Heavenly Home (John 3:3)

Most of our inheritance has been made available now. We must take full possession of them. Like the Israelites who took over their promised land, they had to fight to possess it. Satan would not allow you to enjoy these things without giving a fight. Don’t be moved if any of them seems not to materialize immediately. Stand on the word of God, and keep declaring what the word has said. Fight the good fight of faith. (1st Tim 6:12)

CONFESSION

I have received a great inheritance in Christ. I have inherited the power in His name that gives me perfect authority over Satan. I have eternal life, the very life of God. His Spirit is alive in me producing His works through me.
