The Riches of His Glory 2

The Riches of His Glory 2

Continuation on the riches of His glory

What Paul was saying is that the Father has prepared good things for everyone who believes in Christ Jesus. Who believes in His death, resurrection and ascension.

The people under the old covenant could not see the things which God prepared for those that loved Him. It was concealed to them, because no man can ever truly love God without God shedding abroad His love in his heart by the indwelling of the Spirit. Though it was required of these people to love the Lord with all their hearts, their souls, minds and everything,but the capacity was not given to them to do so because they were not born of God.

From 1 Corinthians 2:9-10, we see that we are the ones who love the Lord because of our faith in Christ Jesus. We love Him because He has given us the same nature He has by the shedding of His love abroad in our heart by the Holy Ghost in us.

Because we have the Spirit of our Father on our inside, He has made known to us the things He prepared for us. What a privileged generation we are! The generation of Christ whom the Father has revealed all things to.

The old testament folks could not enjoy the privilege we are now enjoying in Christ Jesus. Praise to Jesus.
I have earlier said that the reason why the Father revealed these things to us is because He wants us to richly enjoy them and now is the time to know them from the wisdom which Christ has given to us.

What is wisdom?
It is the words of Christ communicated to us by His Spirit in the Bible, which the Father wants us to live by (Colossians 1:9; 2 Timothy 3:15-16 ).

Read the wisdom below.
Revelation 5:9-12 “9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.” 11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive POWER and RICHES, and WISDOM, and STRENGTH, and HONOUR, and GLORY, and BLESSING. ”

POWER, RICHES, WISDOM, STRENGHT, HONOUR, GLORY, and BLESSING are the inheritance of the saints in the LIGHT. They are the riches of the Father’s glory in us.

THE ENJOYMENT OF OUR INHERITANCE
We’ve come to know what our inheritance is and the sole reason why the Father has given them is for us to enjoy them.
Romans 9:23-24 ” and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, 24 even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? ”

We can see how loving and caring our Father is. The purpose of calling us to Himself is for Him to make known the riches of His glory on us ” VESSELS OF MERCY ” His calling is a calling onto glory.

The word ” known ” used in this passage is a derivative of the Greek word ” Gnorizo ” which means to be recognized; to have knowledge of something. Remember that passages says ” That He ( God ) might make known the riches of His glory upon us the vessels of mercy. It means the Father wants to reveal to the world how rich He is and this is done on us.

Let us look briefly into the history of what Jesus did to receive our inheritance for us. By this, we would continually offer the sacrifice of praise onto our Father. This sacrifice is the fruit of our lips to our Father, confessing to Jesus’name.

Hebrews 13:15 ” Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. ”

Revelation 59-12 “9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.” 11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive POWER and RICHES, and WISDOM, and STRENGTH, and HONOUR, and GLORY, and BLESSING. ”

God our Father want a people for Himself and brought us to Himself through Jesus. We are redeemed back to God by the precious blood of Jesus Christ our Lord.
The word ” redeemed ” is derived from the Greek word ” AGORAZO ” which means to go to the market and purchase. It means to buy.
Jesus Christ came to this world to buy us; to purchase us to God by a great price which is His blood. Hallelujah. We worth the blood of Christ. The price paid was not to Satan but to the Father whom He redeemed us to.

Acts 20:28 ” Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. ”

1 Corinthians 7:23 ” You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. ”
Christ redeemed us out of every tribe , tongue, people and nation to God. What does that mean ? It means we are no longer operating by the standard and the traditions of the world. We are not subjected to what happens to the people of this world. We are not bound by rules: TOUCH NOT, TASTE NOT, HANDLE NOT.

Colossians 2:20-22 ” Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations- 21 “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” 22 which all concern things which perish with the using-according to the commandments and doctrines of men ? ”

Jesus Christ redeemed us by His blood from tribes, tongues, people and nation and made us kings and priest onto our God. Before, we had no relationship with the Father. Our former condition before the Father was so terrible but now Christ has redeemed us from the terrible generation and He has made us kings and priests onto Himself.

1 Peter 2:8-9 ” But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. ”

Can you see that? Jesus came to this world, shed His blood to receive us back to God and made us kings and priests. What can now separate us from our Father? What can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:32-36.
We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, WE ARE GOD’S OWN SPECIAL PEOPLE. Hallelujah!

There are two kinds of generations on earth today. The generation of Christ which is far superior without comparison to the generation of Adam. We belong to the glorious generation, the generation of Christ.

The reason why Christ made us kings and priests is to reign on earth and to offer spiritual sacrifice onto the Father.

1 Peter 2:5 ” you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. ”

Hebrews 13:15 ” Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. ”

The plan of our Father from the foundation of the world is to create a people that will demonstrate His rulership on earth. This is His intention from the beginning. He created Adam for this but he could not enjoy this for long because he had no life in him and he fell because of disobedience to God. So everyone in Adam could not reign, but what Adam could not achieve has been achieved in the last Adam who is our progenitor. Christ redeemed us from a set of people that are slaves of Satan and the system of the world and made us kings and priests to reign on earth. It means we have received a kingdom and this kingdom is an unshakable one. This is the kingdom of God.

Friends it is good to let you know at this point that heaven is not a place for believers to reign. We are born in heaven to rule on earth. We are from heaven reigning on earth with the heavenly life. We are in heaven with Christ presently, in the spirit and we shall be in heaven with Him with a glorified body. Hallelujah. This is to reap the reward of our work demonstrated in love on earth.

Now, We have been made to understand that Christ was slain to redeem us by His blood from every tribe, tongue, people and nation and has made us kings and priests, but we are made to understand again that He was slain to receive the riches of God’s glory which are the inheritance of the saints. These are the things needed for our reigning and enjoyment on earth as Kings and priests.
