Moving Into Your Inheritance
Selling Your Birthright
The eternal Spirit, who created all things, has a fatherly nature that desires to give us the most incredible inheritance so we lack nothing for eternity. Luke 12:32 He desires for our spirits to overflow with the eternal treasures; love, truth, joy, delight, power, liberty, and peace. And eternity starts NOW for those who come to Him, in truth and spirit. Isaiah 55:6
We were created to be the family of God. By making us a part of Himself through Christ’s spirit in us; we are able to abide with Him always in the perfection of love. John 1:12 There is nothing that God will hold back from us because the world is His, He lacks nothing and He loves us. Psalm 34:10
How incredible this birthright. Our Creator, the perfect Father, is giving us all that is His and above all, Himself.
How do we come into this inheritance?
We choose to sow love.
Before us is a choice: to embrace our birthright into the eternal kingdom of everlasting goodness or to remain consumed by the fleeting lusts of the world, which ultimately destroy our souls. And people are far more bound by lusts than they realize.
Lust controls and rules us. It drives us to fulfill its call only to the debasement and dishonor of ourselves and others. It produces harm, suffering and affliction amidst its ravenous emotions. Conversely, love is gentle and kind, and desires to be received and returned. The former comes from the depravity and debase nature of this world full of corruption and lies, the latter from the infinite source of purity.
Hebrews 12:16 lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright.
The life of Esau is an illustration of choosing the lust of the world. He sold his birthright in which all would be his as the first born son for a pot of stew. In his blindness, he thought he was going to die from hunger, so what good was a birthright if he was dead? Thus, he gave it up. This symbolizes how people exchange the Kingdom of their true Father for the fleeting lusts of the world. Isaiah 22:12-14 When these are our pursuit, we destroy ourselves and harm those around us. Spiritual blindness causes people to give up glory for shame. Isaiah 64:4-5, Romans 8:13
Our Creator desires the best of everything for us; for this is love. By giving us His spirit through Christ, we are able to “see” and thus pull our head out of the sand of false images and see what the God of love is giving us. But we must seek to “see” because of the multitude of false images and love is received.
Will we remain in the lusts of the world signified in all the images it promotes? What is beautiful, successful, powerful, wise .. what is God (ie Religion). James 3:15-18 This world is full of images that people worship with their resources: time, money and lives. While God and all His characteristics are without images, thus not of religion, because He is far beyond what any image can contain; Satan is the god of images. When we desire and feed the images of this world, we worship Satan. When we desire the purest of love and feed it; we worship God.
We accept our inheritance of God when we sow the truths of God, which are of love. In sowing the lust of the flesh; we neglect sowing the righteousness of God and trample upon His wisdom and inheritance to us. It keeps us separated from the true love, peace, joy and life that is without end and continually increases. You can’t serve both lust and love for they are contrary to one another. This justification harms and imprisons many. Serving lusts of the flesh reveals a heart destitute of love; a heart that doesn’t know God. John 17:3 Thus, it grieves His Holy Spirit which desires to sow righteousness in our souls. This is why God hates this mindset. Romans 9:13 Your mind is your destiny.
The truest love can only come from a union with the source of love. God wants to pour His love upon us, but as love is gentle and is to be received; we must come to Him. He has already extended His love to us; now we are to embrace Him by seeking the truest purest of love in all areas of our lives, for this is now He manifests Himself to us. Isaiah 66:2 If we seek, He will open our eyes.
Isaiah 63:10 But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; So He turned Himself against them as an enemy, And He fought against them.
Our choices are starting to manifest as God is coming to establish His kingdom. You don’t want to be unknowingly fighting against God, you won’t win. Righteous love will reign. Seek to know God’s love in truth, so you can choose it. You live by what you know. The lusts of the flesh will manifest in the gruesome stench of death they create in those who cling to them; while the love of God will bloom into a magnificent garden of delights beyond what has been previously seen or known. Our lives are bearing the fruit of our hearts; may they be full of the truths of God, thus the love of God.
