Inheritance In Christ:
Inheritance in Christ – When we want to rule and reign over the unbelievers and the world. We often claim it’s God’s will for us to be ahead of unbelievers in all spheres and aspects of life. That is in areas of commerce, politics, career and finance.
We call it our inheritance and the kingdom take over.
We make confessions like
“I excel above my mates”
“I take over my industry”
Or something like “I am in this world to be above not beneath”
“I employ not to be employed”
Assuming this is Gods will, it will mean for these affirmations to be and continue
Not all men can be saved. In fact most won’t be saved. It also will and would mean, even if many are saved, most of that number will be ignorant of their rights / inheritance in Christ. It shows the right kingdom mentality will be far away from them.
Since if we all should walk in this wrong “kingdom mentality” then the “inheritance” gets weaker and ineffective. That is the more believers know and walk in this kingdom mentality. This is because it’s all about excelling and ruling others.
Much more, if this “inheritance” is excelling beyond the unsaved and having what they don’t have to rule over them, its implication is much daring.
Inheritance In Christ Is For Few:
Again it also proves that God is NOT sincere. That is about Him wanting all men saved and coming into the knowledge of the truth. Since his glory is to have some rule over few!
For Him to be glorified, fewer should be saved and be able to show His glory to others!
Hope you got this?
Maybe this “theology” hasn’t been well thought through.
Maybe many are only driving the scriptures to suit their own narratives of inheritance and kingdom
If scriptures are to be believed for salvation through faith in Christ alone, the inheritance can’t be a material kingdom or accomplishment
Hence the words of Jesus below;
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
And Apostle Paul puts it this way below;
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
Know your inheritance and cherish it
1 Corinthians 15:19
I call you blessed
