Describe the Inheritance                June 2, 2019

Acts 20:32  And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

This is your inheritance, the masterpiece of the word of His grace. If you miss this, you’ve missed it all, and if you don’t continue in it, you have wasted your life. Paul had preached this to the Ephesian elders for three years. These same words are for you now. Your inheritance – go after it with everything in you.

Joshua 18:3-4, 6  And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long areye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?  4  Give out from among you three men for eachtribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come againto me.

6  Ye shall therefore describe the land intoseven parts, and bring the descriptionhither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.

This is a pattern of God, He urges us to take our inheritance. Joshua is dividing the land, the inheritance, to the seven tribes. They’ve been slack, they heard about it but the only way to inherit was to rise up and go in; know it and describe it.

Joshua 18:8-9  And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.  9  And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came againto Joshua to the host at Shiloh.

They went in, knew it, and they described it.

Joshua 18:10  And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to their divisions.

Such amazing grace, all they had to do was go in. Seven = perfect or complete. God has invested everything to have this, a wife for His Son. Will you not go in? Let Him prepare your heart. Out from the church will come a bride for Jesus. Paul’s gospel describes our inheritance.

2 Timothy 4:8  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.

There are ranks in the resurrection. Over and over in the Old Testament the Holy Ghost is describing it. Like Israel’s inheritance, there is a requirement to possess your inheritance, it has to be described. They didn’t possess it yet because they were slack. Don’t be slack, we have such an inheritance!

Hebrews 11:40  God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

Rise up and go. You need to understand what has been given to you in order to possess it.

Galatians 4:1  Now I say, Thatthe heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

We have an out-calling inheritance. It’s called an out-resurrection.

Philippians 3:11  If by any means I might attain unto the (out) resurrection of the dead.

There is a bride coming out of the body. Get ready. We are not appointed to wrath.

1 Thessalonians 5:9  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

There is a sleep but not for us. We are not of the night. How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation? We cannot be slack concerning our inheritance, so let’s go on describing it. The vision of what He wants us to be for Him. Do you know the boundaries of that land? The breadth, length, depth, height, and to know the love of Christ. Endless boundaries. Walk throughout all the land. Possess it all!
