The inheritance promised to us humans is ETERNAL LIFE. And we have this promise from our God only when we believe in Jesus Christ. A person who believes in JESUS CHRIST, heirs of all the Promises of God and of Eternal Life… but the time to receive the inheritance has not yet come, but in the spirit he has been chosen to be an heir inherited the way to be born..
That is how a person who is born again becomes… When the time comes after this life is over then we will all be handed over to our hands as the Lord Jesus after completing the work was entrusted to him by the Father. All authority in heaven and on earth was given.
But the news is that this inheritance can be bought and so you can sell it.
The Bible says in..
Mark 10:17 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
You see, in order to have eternal life you have to sell some of the things you have, and the meaning of selling is to GIVE YOUR HEART into the things you used to see as meaningful in your life.
You give your heart to money, you give your heart to fame, in a very real sense not by hypocrisy, you give your hope and your heart to your education, you give your heart to the pleasures you make with sin and all worldly things, you become like today you have begun to live. So much so that nothing outside of you can excite you or have a greater place in your heart than Jesus.
As the Apostle Paul did..
Philippians 3: 7 “But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ”
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, because of Jesus its like you have sold everything and bought something valuable (high price). Therefore things of heaven has high value..(high price)
Likewise the kingdom of heaven CAN BE SOLD… Although it is bought at a high price but it can also be sold..and it can be sold even for a very small price…
Here is where the person who was given the grace to know him When Christ turns and despises that Grace and decides to forsake it and return to the world. That place is taken by another, as Judas sold his place for his THIEF behavior, causing his place to be given to another named Matthias.
Even Esau sold his birthright for one day and gave it to Jacob his brother.
As we see in the Book of..
Hebrews 12:16 “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
As we read above the time will reach for those who ignored the Grace of God given to them, that time will be regrating time, tears and with grear pain, people will long for tears to be brought back at least five minutes back to correct their mistakes, but they will miss that opportunity… when they see the immorality they were committing has healed them have missed heaven, the drunkenness they used to enjoy for a while has healed them and made them to miss the heaven, the corruption they were eating blinded them etc. of great sorrow and remorse like that of Judah and Esau…
Jude later when he came to know his mistakes he cried until he hanged himself to see Life is meaningless again. And Esau also sought his place with tears but never found it again.
May the Lord help us not to sell our heritage for the few things of the world that are passing away… instead to seek it out and buy it at all costs. So that in the day when we shall see what the eye has never seen nor the ear to hear our joy may be complete.
The Lord bless you.
