Redemption brings the believer into a seven-fold inheritance in Christ, which include Power, Riches, Wisdom, Strength, Honor, Glory, and Blessings Rev. 5:12. It is sanctification that secures our access to these seven-fold inheritance Acts 20:32.
The Seven-fold Redemptive Inheritance of the Believer.
This is the only thing that the enemy respects and submits to Psa. 66:3; Rms. 13:1-2. With power, the believer takes charge in life thereby enjoying the life of triumph. But it is a renewed life that entitled the believer for fresh oil and power Lk. 5:37-39. Therefore, by each one’s decision for sanctification today, the enemy shall not take you for a ride anymore Lk. 10:17-19.
Poverty robs a man of dignity and color, but God made His children for a glorious life Ecc. 9:14-16; Jn. 10:10. But righteousness is the believer’s access to durable riches in life Lk. 16:11-12. As we take a stand for sanctification, poverty shall not be our portion anymore as we continue to walk in financial integrity Job 22:23-24.
New birth made the believer into a king and priest, and by wisdom kings reign, our royalty shall be restored Rev. 5:9-10; Pro. 8:15-16. The scriptures make us to understand that the fear of God is our covenant access to divine wisdom, Pro. 9:10.
Strength connotes health and vitality, which enables the believer to generate exploits in life Dan. 11:32. Our strength shall be on the increase as we keep walking in the fear of God Pro. 31:3.Samson, a man of exploits by reason of manifestation of supernatural strength in his life, lost it and ended a failure for it; beware of Samson’s syndrome Jug. 6:4-21.
Honor is to be esteemed and respected beyond one’s status, credentials, ad qualification. Sanctification positions the believer for honor; in essence, as we purge ourselves we become vessels of honor in life 2Tim. 2:19-21.
Glory is everything opposite of shame and reproach, and it is God’s design for His children Rms. 8:29-30. It is sin that brings reproach; we should learn from the life of king Uzziah who was destroyed for his pride Pro. 14:34; 2Chr. 26:14-21.
Blessing is all that a man needs to make it in life Gen. 1:28. New life brings a man into the life of blessing Gal. 3:13-14. God’s blessings usually trail the believers’ obedience – Deut. 28:1-2; Jn. 14:21.
In conclusion, for everyone that has been robbed of any of these inheritances in Christ, there is restoration for you today. All that is required is for us to make the decision to walk in sanctification from now.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for
