We need to understand what this means… what this grants us: to be heirs…
“…we have received, not the spirit of the world, but THE SPIRIT WHICH IS OF GOD; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God” [1 Corinthians 2:12]
It means that we are no longer slaves- Galatians 4:6–7 “And because we are his sons God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, so now we can rightly speak of God as our dear Father. Now we are no longer slaves, but God’s own sons…”
And that we since we are no longer slaves, but belong to God we have access to EVERYTHING God has: “Now we are no longer slaves, but God’s own sons. And since we are his sons, EVERYTHING HE HAS BELONGS TO US, for that is the way God planned” Galatians 4:7
We have been made partakers of ALL that is the Lord’s
But what is “the Lord’s”? What does that make us partakers and owners of…?
Deuteronomy 10:14 tells us clearly: 14 Behold, THE HEAVEN AND THE HEAVEN OF HEAVENS IS THE LORD’S THY GOD, THE EARTH ALSO, WITH ALL THAT THEREIN IS.
1 Chronicles 29:11: Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
Just like Abram (later to be called Abraham) we are a “Possessor of heaven and earth”.
It means that we are given ALL spiritual blessings: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” [Ephesians 1:3].
It means that we have already been given these things in Christ!
