Colossians 1:10-12 “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord (Adoni – Sovereign King) . . . . Who hath called you unto His kingdom and glory . . . . increasing in the knowledge (knowing) of GOD. Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power . . . . and giving thanks unto The Father (Abba Yehuwah), which hath made us meet (worthy) to be partakers of the Inheritance of the Saints in Light !”
I Thessalonians 2:12
Do you know what this Inheritance is ?
that was paid for by such a cost, as the very Life of the Son of GOD ?
Ephesians 1:18-20 “That the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, ye may know what is the Hope of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His Inheritance in the saints (G40 – sacred, blameless, pure, consecrated, most holy). And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His Own right hand in the heavens !”
Grace = the Divine Influence upon the heart, and It’s reflection seen in the life
Christ = The Anointed One, the Anointing
Ephesians 4:7-12 “For unto every one of us is given Grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Where-fore (and for this reason) He saith, When He ascended up on high (to take His throne), He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men . . . . for the perfecting (complete furnishing) of the saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying (building up, confirmation) of the body of Christ !”
Ephesians 5:26, 30 “That He might sanctify it and cleanse it with the washing (baptism) of water of the Word. That He might present it to Himself a glorious congregation, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish . . . For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones !”
Romans 8:11 “And if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead, dwell in you, then He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you ! . . . For the Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of GOD.
And if children, then heirs; heirs of GOD, and joint heirs with Christ ! ref: John 3:34
Galatians 3:16 -18 “Now to Abraham and his Seed were the Promisesmade. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of One, And to thy Seed, which is Christ ! . . . And this I say, that the Covenant (Oath, Promise), that was confirmed (previously ratified) in (with) Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the Promise of none effect !
For if the Inheritance be of (by) the law, then it is no more of Promise: but GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) gave it to Abraham by Promise (Oath, Covenant) !”
Note: The story of Abraham and Isaac is a perfect shadow picture of our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus(Yehushua). For before the creation of mankind, Yehuwah Elohim (Jehovah God) was verily “The Almighty Father,” and Christ was an “only child,” the Only Begotten of the Father. But the Father desire to have a large family of sons and daughters (ref: Hebrews 2:10). So through the plan of Redemption and Salvation Jesus (Yehushua) became our Elder Brother and Jehovah (Yehuwah) became The Father of a great multitude !
Hebrews 6:13 “For when GOD made Promise to Abraham, because He could sware by no greater, He sware by Himself, Saying, Surely Blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying, I will multiply thee . . . !”
ref: Luke 6:38 – “Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over ! . . . . Freely ye have received, freely give in return !” Matthew 10:8
Genesis 15:4-6 “And behold, the Word of the LORD came unto Abram, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels (bosom) shall be thine heir . . . !
ref: Proverbs 8:24 & John 1:18
Abram = the high or mighty father then Abraham = Father of a great multitude (many peoples)
And He brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell (count) the stars, if thou be able to number them: And He said unto him, So shall thy Seed be ! And Abram believed in the LORD; and He counted (reckoned it as though it already was) it to him for righteousness !”
Hebrews 11:12 “Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable !”
Hebrews 11:1 “For faith is the substance of things hope for, the evidence of things not yet seen !”
Genesis 22:14-18 “And the Angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, and said, By Myself have I sworn (an Oath, Covenant), saith the LORD . . . . That in Blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy Seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore.
And in thy Seed shall all the nations (peoples) of the earth be Blessed . . . !”
Galatians 3:14 “That the Blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ (Yehushua ha Moshiac); that we might receive the Promise of the Spirit through faith !”
Romans 4:13-14 “For the Promise, that he should be heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his Seed,
. . . which Seed is Christ . . . through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of (by) the law be heirs, then faith is made void, and the Promise (Oath) made of none effect !”
Galatians 3:2-9 “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect (complete) by the flesh?
He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith ? . . . . For faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of GOD ! . . . Even as Abraham believed GOD, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham !
And the Scripture, foreseeing that GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) would justify (to render just, innocent, holy and righteous) the heathen through faith, preached before the Glad Tidings unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be Blessed ! So then they which be of faith are Blessed with faithful Abraham !”
Hebrews 6:17 “Wherein GOD, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of Promise, the immutability of His Counsel, confirmed it by an Oath . . . . that we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us . . . !”
Ephesians 1:18-20 “That we might know . . . the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe . . . which He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His Own right hand in the heavens . . . . Far above all principality, and power, and might, and every name that is named . . . !”
Ephesians 2:5-6 “For even when we were dead in sins, hath He quickened us together with Christ, (for by Grace ye are saved), And He hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavens in Christ Jesus.
. . . And you being dead in your sins, and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses (unintentional error, or willful transgression, rebellion) . . . .
So that in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of His Grace in His kindness toward us through Jesus Christ !” Colossians 2:13
Galatians 4:28-29 “Now we brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of the Promise ! But as then he that was born after (by) the flesh persecuted him that was born by the Spirit, even so it is now !”
John 1:13 “Which were born (begotten), not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man,
but of GOD !”
James 1:18 “For of His Own will begat He us with the Word of Truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits
of His creatures !” ref: Hebrews 10:10
Acts 3:25 “For ye are the children of the prophets, and of the Covenant which GOD made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy Seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.”
Hebrews 6:11-12 “And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end . . . . Fight the good fight of faith . . . . And be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the Promises !”
“For whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious Promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the Divine nature . . . . and the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit and they are Life !”
II Peter 1:4 & John 6:63
Revelation 14:12 “For here is the patients of the saints; here are they that keep the commandments of GOD, and (by) the faith of Jesus !”
“And we are more than Conquerors through Him that loves us . . . For greater is He which is in us, than he which is in the world . . . !” Romans 8:37 & I John 4:4
