Confidence in Heavenly Inheritance

 1 Corinthians 1:30

 ‘But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption’ (KJV)

Gift giving in fun! God has always thought so, and his gift giving does not come with a contradiction-in-terms conditional warning label, or a pre-terms-and-conditions contract. He is liberal in giving and so he has given liberally, freely, without condition. Check out this scripture: ‘If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.’ (James 1:5, KJV). Papa God is generous! That’s what we see in the gift of Salvation, the gift of Jesus Christ! In Jesus and through his finished work on the cross we see a God who gave liberally and over-abundantly! And, not because he had to, but because he desired! Mr Love has recused and irreversibly, irrevocably blessed his children! Let me ask you; do you believe in this inheritance? Do you have confidence in the gift of Salvation? Are you hoping in God and your placement in the Trinity? Well, if not turn to Holy Spirit, he’s got a gift that will help…

Papa God has given you heavens best – Jesus, his own life, Holy Spirit! You see, Jesus is both the gift and the giver, likewise Holy Spirit, and if you are struggling to embrace your inheritance then Holy Spirit is ready; ready to love you, ready to comfort you, ready to shower you with supernatural revelation! And let me tell you, Holy Spirit revelation will have you soaring in God’s grace – your inheritance!

God wants you confident in what he has given you! Jesus didn’t merely come to give us a fighting chance of attaining some form of life, no! He came to give us his every own life – in quality and quantity!  Jesus became for us ‘wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption’! It’s because of God that you are in Christ, that you have this gift, and God wants to to know what you have, and to have confidence in what you have! So, whether you need a manifestation to wisdom, holiness, protection, prosperity, healing, or whatever, know today that the answer is to turn to Jesus who has already given you what you need by virtue of his incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension! God knew what we needed and so he laden his Son with all that we need, so that in the removing of old Adam and in our positioning in Christ we might gain access to a glorious heavenly inheritance! Indeed, you are blessed! So, turn to Holy Spirit and allow supernatural revelation to aid you in unwavering confidence in your heavenly inheritance!

Thoroughly Supernatural

1 Corinthians 1:7

‘Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.’

The gospel is a supernatural message! From start to finish the gospel is about the extraordinary work of the Godhead securing for us an eternal, supernatural redemption! This is why, 1) the gospel has nothing to do with our works, it’s all by grace, through faith, and, 2) we are now new creations who are called to operate in the supernatural and invade the impossible! I love it! The gospel is so relevant because it informs us of the cure for the ills of this world, but it also goes against the grain of the knowledge of this world because it is thoroughly supernatural, it points to Jesus, it doesn’t demand our practical-‘I’ll pay you back’-works!

As part of our supernatural heritage in Christ we are called to enjoy and operate in the gifts of the Spirit. Now when it comes to operating in the gifts of the Spirit we must remember certain things: Well, firstly cessationism is a doctrine from the rubbish dump. Secondly, Paul listed nine simply because he choose to list nine (there are also nine fruits of the Spirit listed). This does not necessarily mean that there aren’t other grace abilities that the believer can walk in. Thirdly, which do you like the look of? Tongues? Healing? The shiny gift of Prophecy? Well, Paul does say that each one should take its turn in church, but this doesn’t mean that believers can’t operate in all of the gifts. Notice this weeks meditation verse; ‘Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.’ (See 1 Corinthians 1:7). Paul says that we ‘do not lack any spiritual gift’! Hallelujah!

We are new creations, under new covenant, in a new day, and we are thoroughly equipped to be thoroughly supernatural! Let’s believe in our heritage, know we are equipped and lack no spiritual gift, rest and enjoy grace, and see the gifts manifest as the Spirit enables!
