INHERITANCE RESERVED FOR YOU – KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

Beloved, being a believer  and a child of God calls for a lifetime celebration.  You are not for once to be pitied,  but to be envied. This is because here on  earth and  hereafter  at eternity,  you are called into glory not reproach.  See how the scriptures affirmed this over and ovet in the Bible.

 2Pe 1:32Pe 1:4  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Rom 8:28Rom 8:30  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Beloved , the saints  of  old were quite aware of this.  This  was why they were  willing to pay any price to win the prize of glory promised them by God.  See some of then.
1. The Psalmist

Psa 16:8Psa 16:11  I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

2. Patriarch Job.

Job 19:25Job 19:26  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

3. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph  etc.

Heb 11:13Heb 11:16 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Beloved,  this same glory is placed at the disposal of believers of all ages and you, through Christ.  See it.

Colossians 1:27  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

So  believe it, embrace it, pursue it and you also shall be listed among the cloud of witnesses and heroes of faith in Jesus name.
Dearly  beloved,  when our Lord Jesus Christ was here during His earthly  ministry,.   He informed His followers then and also His followers of all ages  , which includes you of a glorious coveted eternal glory awaiting then, if they faithfully follow Him to the end.  See it yourself.

Jn 14:1Jn 14:3   Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

While still here   on earth,  He spent time to pray for all of them including you , not to miss this prized glory.

John 17:24  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Even now in glory,  He still continue to pray for them and you not to miss it and you shall not miss it in Jesus name.

Hebrews 7:25  Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Dearly  beloved our Lord informed them and also you the price to pay to win the Prize of this eternal glory. See it

Jn 12:26Jn 12:27  If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

It is this enviable eternal glory that could only be accessed  through Christ,  that the  blessed  Holy Spirit through the writing’s of apostle Paul is affirming to you now. See it.

Colossians 1:27  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

The Bible severally  affirmed this truth  for believers  of all ages and you too,  to covet and possess  it.

Romans 5:2  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Rom 8:17Rom 8:18  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

2Co 4:172Co 4:18  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but

the things which are not seen are eternal.

Colossians 1:5  For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

So do everything through the grace of God, to ensure this emviable eternal glory does  not elude you. It shall not in Jesus name.
   
Friend, no doubt you are persuaded about the reality of the  dawning  rapture.  But then ,  what is the essence of this glorious event?  It is for you in particular to enjoy eternal glory with God for ever.  It shall not elude you in Jesus name.  

1Pe 1:31Pe 1:5  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

This glory is accessed through Jesus alone. 

Colossians 1:27  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

So what do you do to be ready and not miss it?
1. Live with eternity in view till Christ comes.

Col 3:1Col 3:4   If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

2. Serve the Lord wholeheartedly till He comes.

2Ti 4:72Ti 4:8  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

1Pe 5:11Pe 5:4  The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

Receive grace to do so in Jesus name.
