God Has Willed All to Us

by | Nov 8, 2009 | Faith, Purpose & Identity, Spirit-Led Living

Hebrews 9:13-28 When my mother died, I could not come into my inheritance until all the legal requirements were met. Only then could I receive what she had willed to me many years earlier when she wrote her will.

In the very beginning of time God wrote a will for all of His children to inherit. Even though Christ had not yet been made flesh, He was present with the Father in the Spirit. Jesus was the very living Word of God that spoke the worlds into being. God intended for all who believed on His Son to inherit eternal and abundant life. The legal requirements had to be fulfilled first. For a will to be activated, the person who has written the will must be dead. Christ died once for all men, and because He died, we now can inherit all God intended for us to inherit from the beginning of time.

When my mother died, I had to go to the courthouse to claim my inheritance. I had to give proof of my identity and sign some papers. When Jesus died, the availability of His inheritance was there, but we now have to claim it. We claim our inheritance by believing and receiving by faith Jesus as our Lord and Savior. The sad part is that so many do not know anything about their great inheritance. If they never have heard the gospel, how can they claim their inheritance? What is even sadder is that some when they hear the gospel refuse to claim their inheritance. I have never understood this.

After the law was given to Moses, he sprinkled the blood of calves and goats upon the book, the people and the tabernacle. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. After Jesus died, His blood was made available to us to cleanse and sanctify our earthly tabernacles (our body, soul and spirit). Because Jesus said, “Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God,” we now have the privilege of entering into all God has willed for us.

Father, I pray for all those today who have missed becoming a joint heir with Christ. I pray these lost people will have the eyes of their understanding opened, and I pray You will deposit the gift of faith to them so that they might believe and receive Jesus Christ, Your Son, as their Lord and Savior. I pray that soon they will be able to claim their full inheritance. Thank You, Father, for sending Your Son to earth, not only to live, but also to die and to live again.
