43rd week: Jesus Second coming - CO-OWBERS! The Lord’s faith in us is truly amazing!
“The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” PSALM 24:1 (KJV)
For several days now the Lord has been dealing with me concerning several words with identical meaning, having in mind the context of God’s purpose: co-owner, co-worker, and inheritor. You see, everything is the Lord’s, yet, the Lord Himself has made us co-owners, co-workers and co-inheritors with His Son Jesus Christ. Can you believe that?
If we realize that, everything will change – our attitude, our actions, our faith. When a person is an owner of something, he takes a good care of it. We are constant witnesses of offended people, not interested people, people full of apathy. That’s because they do not realize they are co-owners of God’s Universe, co-owners of God’s Earth, co-owners of our families, co-owners of the vision of our ministries, and co-owners of our own ministries, jobs and businesses.
The Lord owns everything, and everything is made by and for Him, but He is sharing it with us. Wow. Apostle Paul prayed: “Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.” (Ephesians 1:15-23).
My God, this prayer says it all – all belongs to the Lord, He gives it to us, we are to realize it through the opening of our spiritual senses (eyes, ears and heart) and we are to act upon it, so we can enter into our inheritance.
