There is a family on earth who’s head is God. Anybody can become a member of this family by the process called the second birth through Jesus Christ. This family of God is the richest or wealthiest; there is no other family on earth or anywhere in the universe that have up to millionth (conservative estimate) of the wealth of this family. Psalm 24:1 says,
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof …”
Everything here on earth or any other place in the universe belongs to the Lord God Almighty. Also in Haggai 2:8, we read, “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of host”
If you are already a member of this family, I want to congratulate you for this is the greatest achievement in the land of the living. As a child of God, you have access to unlimited resources and wealth of the family where God, your father is the head. One of the many privileges is the heritage of success in any endeavour you are involved in.
On the other hand, if you are not a member of this highly blessed family, you can be, now. The requirement is very simple and clear. John 3:16 says, “For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. The only condition that qualifies you to be accepted into this family is, “believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved and your household”.
To believe in Him, you must recognize the fact that you are a sinner by birth and by nature, you confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. You believe in your heart that He died for your sins and that God raised Him again from death for your justification.
As this goes on in your heart, a transformation begins; you go ahead to pray to the Almighty God to have mercy on you as you confess Jesus as Lord. John 1:12 Says, “As many as received Him (Jesus Christ), to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name”. You cannot confess all your sins, by nature you are a sinner, your real man (that is the real you) is deeply soaked in sin. By receiving Christ Jesus into your heart, you are given a new nature; you are made a new creation II Cor 5:17. You become born-again, not of corruptible seed but of the incorruptible seed by the WORD OF GOD.
This means that your old man (sin nature) will die as you are being translated from the kingdom darkness (or the devil) to the kingdom of God (Christ). Col 1:13 – 14. This change does not affect the colour of your skin, your height or physical make up, but in the spirit (your heart, the real you), there is a lot of changes and difference.
If you join the police force, it will not affect your physique immediately but you have the authority of the state anytime you are in the uniform, you have become powerful, you can now act on behalf of the state etc. You have all these powers even though you had not grown taller or fatter, even though your complexion had not changed.
The same goes when you have become born-again, you gain spiritual powers and pre-eminence, you become a member of success family. All the powers of God is now made available to you: you now have at your disposal the treasures of God. This article is out to teach you to understand that success is your heritage as a child of God. As you have read through this article, I pray that the Almighty God will open your understanding to be able to comprehend the great treasures in God at your own beck and call. Let’s read I Corinthian 2:12-13.
"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, gut the spirit which is of God. That we might know the things that are freely given to us of God which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual".
As you have spiritual understanding of these things, you will come face to face with those things which God had freely given to you and will be encouraged to speak them forth until they become real in your real world.
Have a wonderful and blessed time enjoying God's heritage of blessing.
