When Do We Inherit

Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris

Revelation 21:1-8 KJV
(1) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
(2) And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
(3) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
(4) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(5) And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
(6) And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
(7) He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
(8) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

If I was meant to inherit the whole world right now I would not have any need of heaven. In fact if all the riches of the world would be handed to us on a silver plater or even a gold one right now what would we have to look forward too. The Bride of Christ will inherit the kingdom of Heaven. The first temple has come and gone onward and upward to be with God. Christ died on the cross for our sins. And rose setting the captivities free of this earth and world if we only believe. With our death we inherit the kingdom of heaven, yet we inherit all things not just the kingdom of heaven but of the new earth and heaven also. Everything of that world will be ours to share and to use. The New Jerusalem is a city of believers that survive the judgment. Every tear is wiped away. Everything is give to the children of God. Everything given to children of the Lamb. We inherit all things because we are the children of God to those that believe.

Right now we are in this world. And the things of this world are ours to obtain and rule over. After all Adam and Eve was told when going from the garden to subdue the earth. To rule over the living creatures of the earth and that the things eaten in this world was for our benefit. Endless cycle for the believer of God being in this world, and in the next ruling in our lives. Yet in Heaven and in the New Jerusalem we own everything. How many chocolate sundaes can you eat? The truth of the matter who would care about ice cream when you be with Jesus and can ask him anything and have your tears wiped clear.

Dear Heavenly Father may our future look bright with the knowledge we inherit all things in heaven and in the New Jerusalem. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
