Claim Your Spiritual Inheritance

Spiritual Inheritance by Adrian BealeJust as someone who marries into a royal line has to learn how to act and carry themselves in society before they exercise their newfound position, so we as believers have to acquire knowledge of our ‘higher’ lifestyle to access the kingdom.

Our key verse is again, ‘Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.’

The word, ‘inherit’ in both the New and Old Testaments means to be an heir. Simply put, heirs inherit. Because we have been engrafted into the royal line of God’s family we have become heirs, but to claim our inheritance we have to grow ‘up.’ Which, in the context of our discussion, means that we have to learn how to live in His presence. In addressing this need, the Apostle Paul writes to the Galatian church, stating,

‘Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differs not from a servant, though he be lord of all.’ Galatians 4:1 (KJV Modernized)

As long as we remain ‘a child’, we are not yet ready to move into our inheritance. What then, constitutes being a child? Paul, in the same passage goes on to explain,

‘Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world.’ Galatians 4:3

So a child is a person living according to the dictates of this world, evidenced by living a double life by professing one thing and doing another. Our understanding is further refined by the Apostle John, who outlines the elements of the world as, ‘the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.’

How then does a believer move to maturity and overcome the world?

The answer is rooted in meekness because, ‘Hope,’ displayed by expectantly waiting in God’s presence, overcomes the lust of the eyes, and exercising ‘Faith’ in God’s rhema word defeats issues of the flesh and the limitations of this physical realm. However, those who step through the veil into eternity, like Moses and Elijah, move beyond faith to step into knowing Christ experientially.

This is when they overcome self-glory, otherwise known as pride, by displaying a ‘Love’ that lays down its life in deference to others. These are marks of a real father. Like them, when we step through the world’s wilderness of temptation, ‘in Christ’, we are also given access to the Father’s table of provision in heaven.
