Spiritual Inheritance

Question:
What do you mean by "rights and inheritance"? You refer to it from time to time. Can you elaborate?

Answer:
As the redeemed of the Lord, we have some treasures that we inherit. As brothers and sisters of Christ (Romans 8:17), we are in line for inheritance and some of that inheritance comes in the here and now (1Corinthians 2:9) if we are willing to make withdrawls from the account. This is a New Testament sort of view and mindset. It is proactive and characterized by confidence and faith in God. To those who have never been around it, this mindset and accompanying language sounds arrogant. God loves it! It is covenant-confidence at work.

Not everyone is ready for it or wants it. I think that is probably one reason why Jesus was rejected by so many of His own. Jesus said to those assembled:
"I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh which I shall give for the life of the world." (John 6:51 and on through verse 68 where Peter declares, "Lord, You alone have the words of life!")

This incident of "Living Bread" caused a serious parting of the ways. Some say, "this is a hard saying." Yes, a tough one! Jesus is talking covenant and they know it. His stock has dropped and things are looking dark for Him in the religious-political scene. Not many wanted to be in covenant relationship with Him. This would aligned them far too intimately with One who was headed into the wine press.

As you more and more recognize what is yours through the gift of salvation (sozo in Greek meaning to deliver, protect, heal, preserve, do well, make whole, Ephesians 2:8, James 1:21 ) you begin affirming it to yourself (
Confession of Faith) and proclaiming it in prayer. Now we have a renewing of your mind, a whole new mindset. New mindset: new behavior: new confidence: new flow of the power of God through you.

This is Covenant living! This is living in the power of your Divine inheritance. If you haven't already made the shift, I can tell you it is life changing.

A primary purpose in the e-course,
Release the Power of Psalm 91, is to fast-track people into realizing the power dynamic that God is inviting us into. As I get feedback from folks who are or have already done the study, its clear that many make the shift.

I had an email from a soldier in Iraq who said, "I can now honestly say, 'I have no fear. Thank you for introducing me to God in way no one has before'."

Lots of similar messages come in. This one has moved me the most because I have such a heart for our young ones in Iraq.

This answer is brief considering a book could be written on the subject. But, pursue the Holy Spirit on this subject. The Spirit is your teacher!...part of the inheritance. Make a withdrawal! You'll probably run into me there at the "bank".
