As told in TPM CHURCH, ROYAPETTA 20-APR-2009 SUNDAY SERVICE
I Kings 21: 1-3
"And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
And Naboth said to Ahab, The LORD forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee"
Here we can see that Ahab is asking for an inheritance that belongs to Naboth and he is reluctant to sell it to him.In this passage we can compare Ahab to worldly pleasures and Naboth to spiritual life. For a child of God,whenever he is away from the presence of God, the worldly pleasures will ask to turn our inheritance to a garden of Herbs.
If you are a true child of God, you should not allow to convert your Fathers inheritance to a garden of hers. You should be ready to put your head for keeping it safe.
Here we can see the five inheritance possessed by a child of GOD
Anointing of Holy Spirit
Eph 1:14 : "ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory".
The gift of holy spirit is an inheritance of a child of God. You should preserve it till your end.In Eph 4:31, we will find the things which will devil bring to our life to destroy our inheritance of HolySpirit "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice"
We aware of all the loop holes which devil brings in our life and preserve our inheritnace of Holyspirit.
Psalms 16:6 "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage". What is this pleasant place? The Holy consecration which the Lord brings us by his mercy is one of our inheritances. In our consecration
we have 5 officers, 9 gifts and 8 ministers. The Lord has given us saints who will teach us the path to Zion and Jerusalem and also we have a wonderful fellowship with the children of God.
As the brothers of Joseph told to him as in Gen 42:10, we are the children of one father. Jesus is our father and we are his children.
Preserve this inheritance of Concegration till the end.
Fellowship with saints
Colossians 1:12 "Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light", Yes, the wonderful fellowship God has given to us with the saints of god is an inheritance.
Lord is my inheritance
Psalms 14:5 "There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous". Jesus is our father and we are his children. All that belonging to Jesus is our inheritance. Zion is our inheritance, Jerusalem is our inheritance.
The Devil will try to separate us from our God. But we should be ready to say that "Who will separate me from my Lord, God?"
If you are able to preserve all the above 4 inheritance then
Heb 9:15 "And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of
eternal inheritance." .
The lord is preparing an eternal inheritance for us. There will not be any sorrow or tears we Will live with our God for years and years.
Are u prepared for the eternal inheritance?
We should be like the merchant as in Mathew 13:46 "Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.". We have found one pearl of great price. That pearl is Jesus Christ , who gave his young blood for saving the mankind from sin.
Be ready to meet Our Lord in Mid-air?
