Hebrews 1:1,2 NLT ... Long ago, God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. And now in these final days, He has spoken to us through His Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son, He created the universe.
Jesus has been appointed Heir of all things.
Romans 8:16,17 ... The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that if we are His children, then we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.
Since we have received Him, we have become children and heirs of God and joint heirs of Christ. The blessings of God are planned for us to enjoy legally because they are ours. Jesus paid a great price for them. He bought them for us through His death and resurrection.
Satan cannot legally take our inheritance. He's been operating through the ages illegally on this Earth with the stuff which he stole and possesses. But this is about to change! We are ready to take it back!
We've recited for years ... "THE WEALTH OF THE SINNER IS LAID UP FOR THE JUST!" (Proverbs 13:22b). Yeah! Well, why aren't we getting it? Because we aren't willing to go and take it. We take it by speaking God's Words out of our mouths.
This is not a physical war ... it's a spiritual war. When we fail to appropriate God's promises, we are actually handing them over to the devil. So for years, the Body of Christ has been letting the devil steal from them. It's time for this to STOP!
