Born again Christians are said to be fellow heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:17) and that we have an inheritance that is permanently sealed in heaven by the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:11-14). This inheritance is not only eternal life (Titus 3:7) but a heavenly inheritance that is unlike earthly inheritances that will like in ruin someday like those ancient Roman mansions that now lie in a state of decay (Heb. 11:9,10; 13:16).
The mansion that Jesus has prepared for those who are His is so spectacular that it can not even be described because the Son of God Himself has prepared it for us (John 14:2). The word for mansion is actually describing a position in the Kingdom of Heaven but there are actual, tangible riches. It is permanent (I Pet. 1:4) and reserved in Heaven (Rev. 3:12) and this inheritance is from God Himself (Col. 3:24).
I have written three books in the hopes that my children and grandchildren will receive my inheritance to aide their going to college. They have qualified for this inheritance, once I am gone, because they are my own family. Likewise, the Father has qualified us to inherit His entire and universal Kingdom, because we are His own children (Col. 1:12). However, my children’s inheritance is earthly and temporary but God’s is permanent and imperishable (I Pet. 1:4). It will never fade, be corrupted, tarnish, and be destroyed, defiled or taken by the IRS!
How would you feel if I told you that you and all other born again Christians will inherit the whole earth (Matt. 5:5) and that they will rule with Christ as kings and priests (Rev. 5:10)? Even more incredible is that Christians will inherit everything, that is all things (Rom 8:32/Heb 2:8)! The word for “all things” is from the Greek, “ta panta” which translates into “all things, everything that is seen, and everything that is unseen”. It is just too much to put into words. Revelation 21:7 is clear that this inheritance is everything there is in the universe.
If you have not already made the commitment to join the family of God and to have your name in the Book of Life (Rev. 3:5/20:12), it is not too late to sign up (Acts16:30-31). Your fee’s have been paid (John3:16) and not even the IRS can touch it. Do it today and when you die, your inheritance awaits you. You can bank on it. Here’s how:
IAdmit – that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior (Rom 6:23)
Abandon – self-effort and realize that you can not be saved by works or efforts (Acts 16:31)
Accept freely Christ’s payment for youir sins, required of the Father. (John 3:16)
Acknowledge Jesus Christ as your personal lord and Savior (Acts 4:12)
If you have just received Jesus, you have now received God’s inheritance rights since youare now a son or daughter of His and can never be lost again and will live forever (John 10:28-29). Now, join a Bible-believing church, or call 1-888-NeedHim (633-3446) for follow up questions about salvation that is only available through Jesus Christ.
