All that the father has is yours! - Pastor Emmanuel Ogbechie
Romans 8: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
One of the biggest revelations in the scriptures is the understanding of the fact that all that the Father has belongs to us. Everything which God the Father possesses; for which reason He is who He is, belongs to the born again believer.
Our faith in Christ Jesus has brought us into union with Christ Jesus in such a way that we share oneness with Jesus. Paul in his letter to the Romans reveals that we are heirs of God. And Joint heirs with Christ Jesus. An heir is the rightful owner of all that his father has.
The dictionary definition of the word heir is a person who inherits or has a right of inheritance in the property of another following the latter's death. In this case death is the release clause for such property to be transferred to the heir.
This reveals that when Jesus died on the cross, God the father was in Christ laying down His life to trigger the release clause of all He has into the hands of all those who believe in Jesus. Alleluia.
As joint-heirs with Christ we share equal right of ownership of every inheritance which Jesus received when He sat down at the right hand of God the father. This is one reason why Ephesians 2:6 Says we have been made to sit together with Christ in the heavenly places.
Jesus made a most amazing statement in John 16 which is so remarkable and which deposits into our hands the revelation that all that God the father has, is ours.
Jesus said in John 16:15, "All things that the Father hath are mine: " This so big when viewed in the light of the knowledge of Romans 8:17 which reveals to us that we are joint-heirs with Christ Jesus. If all that the Father has belongs to Jesus and we are joint-heirs with Jesus then we can boldly say like Jesus that all things that the Father has, is ours. Everything Jesus has by inheritance is equally ours by inheritance because we are joint-heirs.
This is why Paul declared to the Corinthians in 1Corinthians 1:21 ...For all things are yours; 22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
The world is ours because it belongs to our father. Things present, things to come, all are ours. We need to begin to rightfully take our inheritance by faith through a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit.
I declare that all things requisite for a glorious life come into manifestation to you today in Jesus name, if you believe say a loud 'Amen'
Say this prayer, 'Heavenly Father, teach me to take advantage of all that is yours which is mine today through my faith in Christ Jesus.'
