“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light”
It should bring joy to our hearts that the Lord has counted us worthy by His mercies to be partakers of this light, this inheritance in the Light called Jesus
I see that because of the intelligence called “Flesh”, humanity has not been able to tap into that portal of Light opened over men since the onset. Also, those to whom this Light has been allocated have not been able to maximise the opportunity in the past.
It’s a work of Mercy for us to believe what Alpha and Omega is doing: Yes, we believe that intelligence of Light to be able to abide forever more – The path to become partakers of the inheritance in Christ Jesus.
The Father wants us to come into believing.
“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”.
The initial believing brings Christ to your heart. There’s another believing that takes you into the heart of the mainstream of the inheritance in Light that we’ve been called to.
Believing is not just the “now”. It’s not what takes place once and for all. It’s an ongoing process we have to keep abounding into, whereby the communication of our faith will be made effective in this wise.
“He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
There’s something here in these verses: this believing that is talked about brings you to a pedestal, a platform or an experience of life whereby the life you generate— how you live and walk— is no longer directed by the life in the flesh. Those called to God must believe that He is.
The world did not know Him because they couldn’t receive Him as He is. He is The Life, not an option to life. Our call is to give expression to that Life. The way to lay hold of that life by believing.
Believing is an experience by which we come to the Father and communicate the hope. Hope is the substance of faith, the evidence not seen. Believing is the capacity for us to connect to the things hoped for and experience the tangibility of things not seen. Those things not seen would be imported and made visible, because God must be made manifest in the flesh. The technology through which God would be made manifest to flesh is “believing.”
To believe in the faith of the Son is to walk in the newness of His life; to partner with that life as the Yea and Amen or, in other words, as being faithful and true. In that way, you’d walk contrary to the intelligence of flesh and blood which has run the natural. God is looking for those who will acknowledge this prayer: “Thine will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven” (Mathew 6:10).
You live for a will. Your believing is to live for that will. Flesh has its own will, its own operational dynamics by which it survives. God is raising a people that will nullify all that is of flesh. He has said it. It’s preordained— before the foundations of the earth—that His life must find expression in the earth.
It’s an inheritance. Flesh despises it, because it doesn’t count it as real. Kenneth E. Hagin once said that God was more real to him than the steering of his car. That’s where God is heading with us; where all that we relate with will become less tangible to us than God; where everything that is of flesh will lose its lure.
My prayer is that we may we see God. When we do, every other thing becomes inconsequential in the light of Him. To see God is to see His will through His word. May we be able to participate with our hearts with that reality being downloaded and being dispersed into the earth at this time.
May we not be among those who count God’s longsuffering as slackness regarding His promises. He’s promised to come and we’d come as well. Our coming is our believing— coming into the light of the life He’s called us into. I want to be part of those people that will make God’s will be done on earth. It’s a great honour, but how that man despises that honour! He can’t see the honour disposed to him. May we treat with respect that which is able to give us a hope among them that are sanctified. Amen.
