Day 57

Posted by Pastor Greg on

Walking with Isaiah, Day 57: "When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;" - Isaiah 57:13.

God said that those who put their trust in Him, those who believe Him, those who take God at His Word, those people have a possession and an inheritance. 

We Christians, we who have put our trust in the LORD, in His Son, Jesus Christ, we have a possession and an inheritance.

What is our possession?  "The land".  The Hebrew word for "land" is "eretz" and it is also translated "earth".  "In the beginning God created the heaven and the 'eretz'". - Genesis 1:1.

Our "possession" (which means present tense, we have it now) is the whole earth.  It is ours.  The Church is the possessor of the earth, in Christ Jesus!

"The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men." - Psalm 115:16.

"For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith." - Romans 4:13.

According to what Almighty God has said, the earth belongs to those who trust Him.  But, along with our possession, we also have an inheritance.  What is our inheritance?

"...and shall inherit my holy mountain;"

This not only refers to the physical, earthly Temple Mount (Jesus King Messiah shall rule and reign from the Temple Mount in the city of Jerusalem, Israel, during the Millennium). This more refers to the Kingdom of God.  In Scripture, mountains represent kingdoms and our inheritance, "My Holy Mountain", is the Kingdom of God.

Beloved Christian, come to the knowledge and understanding of who you now are and what you now have in Christ Jesus!  It is so much more than simply missing hell and going to Heaven! 

You have a possession and you have an inheritance!

Thanks be to God!
