2. Crowned with Glory and Honor Man’s Original Inheritance

When man was created over 6000 years ago, he inherited the bounty of God. According to the Oxford Dictionary, inheritance means to come into possession of belongings from someone else. Through his creation, man was made in the image of God and inherited from his heavenly Father perfect human life, a garden home, and dominion over his environment.read more…

3.  Granted By Means of a Promise Abraham’s Inheritance

In ancient times, an inheritance was very important. For example, Abraham’s wife, Sarah, demanded that Hagar and her young child be sent away because Sarah was concerned about who would inherit Abraham’s wealth. Genesis 25:5 states that even after taking another wife, Keturah, who bore him six more sons, Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac. His other sons received gifts from Abraham while he was alive, but Isaac exclusively inherited his promises and wealth when Abraham died.read more…

4.  A Heritage to His People Israel Israel’s Original Inheritance

5. Every Knee Shall Bow Christ’s Inheritance

9.  They Are My People Israel’s Future Inheritance

After the long period of Israel’s disfa- vor, the earliest signs of God’s return of favor began in 1878 with the es- tablishment of the settlement of Petah Tikvah. This revealed the end of God’s “double for all her sins” punishment of Israel (Isaiah 40:2). This regathering of the Jews to Israel picked up momentum with the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and Jews purchasing land in Israel. Still, the majority of the Jews did not go back.read more…
