Tuesday 6th September, 2011- TAKE WHAT IS YOURS

Posted by admin - 05/09/11 06:50PM - 15 Comments - The Bible is a legal document, the title deed of your inheritance in God. So, just as a lawyer would stand in court, not to beg but to declare what is written in the constitution to justify his claims, you also are to take the word of God and declare it in order to clear what belongs to you. All that you need has been provided, yet God says, Put me in remembrance declare thou, that thou mayest be justified (Isaiah 43:26). It is not enough for you to have the book or to cram the scriptures in your head, it is important for you to declare it if you must see the blessings materialize in your life. There is the story of two brothers in the bible, one of them is popularly known as the Prodigal son, while the other is simply known as his elder brother. The Prodigal son was aware of his inheritance, he knew the provisions that had been made for him so he went to his father and said, ??Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me? (Luke 15:12). And because it was his legal right, his father could not deny him, so he gave him share of the inheritance. It is true that the Prodigal son went and spent his inheritance on riotous living but the important point I want to focus on for the purpose of this teaching is that he had an understand of his covenant right and he took advantage of it. His senior brother who was older than him sat down in ignorance. Even when he was hungry he would not ask for food, he never one day asked for anything from his father. That is why you can be in the Faith for 20 years, if you have no understanding of your covenant rights, somebody who just came in two years ago will be more blessed than you. The bible says, the first shall be the last and the last shall be the first. So, beware lest others take your place! Even when the Prodigal son returned from his journey and he was reunited with his father, I believe he saw the fatted calf walking around the compound and he said, Father, can we have this for a feast At least as a proof that you have received me back home. And the Father said, Why not So they killed the fatted calf and made a feast. The father put a ring on his finger, changed his clothes and put shoes on his feet; everything he wanted on the account of knowledge, he got it. Then, his elder brother came home in the evening and when he learnt that his prodigal brother had returned and that their father made a fest for him, he was angry and said to the father, These many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.? There are many people like that in Church, who are angry at the prosperity of others. Please understand that the reason you are poor is not because somebody else is rich. The father in that parable said to his elder son, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. (Luke 15:29-31). The provision has been made, so the reason you have not is because you ask not. And you ask not because you are ignorant of your legal rights. When you become enlightened, your suffering will be terminated. Meditate on these: Psalm 105:40, Matt. 7:7
