Proverbs 19:14a (HCSB)

A house and wealth are inherited from fathers

 

  • Inheritance is a topic, which we see from the book of Genesis unto the Epistle of the Apostle Peter.
  • More than 200 times, we find this word in the Bible.  (Only 19 times in the NT)
  • God promised an inheritance to Abram and his descendants.  (Exodus 32:13, Hebrews 11:8)
  • However, as day differs from night, so the OT inheritance from the NT.
  • The OT was the natural, the outer, and the earthly.
  • The NT is the spiritual, the inner, the heavenly.  (1Corinthians 15:45-50)
  • Our heavenly inheritance can only be understood when God opens our minds to understand the realities of the spiritual realm.  (Ephesians 1:17-18)
  • Those who have received the promise of the Holy Spirit (baptism of the Holy Spirit), received the deposit (first down payment) of their inheritance. (Ephesians 1:13-14)
  • This inheritance is both in us, and in heaven. (Ephesians 1:18, 1Peter 1:4)
  • Not every child of God is guaranteed of the inheritance. (Ephesians 5:5, Hebrews 12:16)
  • Obeying the word of grace guarantees us our inheritance. (Acts 20:32)
  • John 14 is the chapter where Jesus explains the inheritance of the Father!

Our inheritance is when we become the dwelling place of the Spirit, the Son and the Father!

 

John 14:1-2, 21, 23(AMP)

DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.  In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places (homes). If it were not so, I would have told you; for I am going away to prepare a place for you. The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.] Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.

 

May we pray for understanding.

May we be obedient to the Word of grace.

May we be faithful to receive our full inheritance from the Father.
