OUR ETERNAL INHERITANCE
1Peter 1:3-4 ” Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade–kept in heaven for you.”
The Scene: A bank vault with safety deposit boxes located in our heavenly bank–waiting to be opened at the proper time, upon our arrival in heaven, our eternal kingdom.
The boxes contain our inheritance documentation, that states what is to be included for us, things such as the promise of salvation and rewards for good works post-salvation. Also our new name* written on a white stone and addressed to each person who has gained eternal life in heaven through faith in God the Father and His Son Jesus the Christ our Savior.
Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
Ephesians 1: 13-14 “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.”
- Revelation 2:17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.”
Only Jesus has the key to the lock box, and He Himself is the key! Revelation 3:7 say, “These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.”
