Children of Abraham: 'Inherit the Nations'
In Romans 4:13, Paul wrote:
“It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.”
In the book of Revelations 5:9-10, the Apostle John wrote:
"You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased for God
persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they will reign on the earth.”
You see my friend, when I was younger, I was raised with a Bible teaching and gospel that clearly taught us that we (as Christians) should be ruling the nations so that God's influence could be spread all over the world.
As a Christian, the concept of ‘inheriting and ruling the nations’ is not an ‘unscriptural’ or ‘dirty’ concept as many preachers would say. Unfortunately, as the years evolved, the church has allowed a ‘breed of preachers’ to convince Christians that teachings related to ‘world inheritance’ are bad things. As a result, we have nurtured Christians who ended up losing interests in conquering the nations for God, thus creating a vacuum. Consequently, the vacuum created by Christians over the past 25 years has allowed for sinisters individuals to rise into powerful and influential positions. Those sinisters individuals are imposing dangerous policies in business, law, in the economy, in the agriculture, education, in technology, even in social behaviors and in many other fields.
You see my friend, to operate well, Satan the devil just needs the children of God to be absent from their position. A Christian operating in his calling brings light and makes it difficult for satan and his children to work. On the other hand, in the absence of light, darkness prevails. In darkness, satan works at its optimal level.
The concept of ‘inheriting and ruling the earth’ is not a dirty concept as many people wrongly taught.
In Romans 4:13, the Bible says that the heir of Abraham have received the promise that they would be heir of the world. In Revelation 5:9-10, the Bible says that those who were redeemed by the blood of the Lamb will be kings and priests on Earth. In other words, the Christians are supposed to be in charge in both spiritual matters and physical matters on Earth. If you don't believe me or if you think that I am sourcing my message from my own imagination, then please read both Romans 4:13 and Revelation 5:9-10.
Even Jesus gave Peter the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven to bind and loosen anything on Earth(ref. Matthew 16:19). Those keys are ‘keys of authority.’
With all the promises and endorsments received from God, why is it that most positions are occupied by the wicked, the unrighteous and the children of Satan?
Here is the response:
You see, one of the reasons that promotes darkness on Earth is the disobedience of Christians.
I will say it with all confidence: “it is possible to pray and worship regularly and yet live in disobedience.” There are Christians who pray seriously but they live as if they never fellowship with God.
If you check the stories of all the main heroes of the Bible, you will notice that, not only they were in fellowship with God but they also obeyed God.
After being told that he would be King, David took steps towards his destiny by working for Saul, killing Goliath and leading a group of supporters. David did not stay in his room in perpetual state of prayer and yet, he wrote a significant portion of psalms.
After his encounter with God and after hearing the promise of God in Genesis 12, Abraham went to the place where God sent him. He obeyed.
After the death of Moses, God spoke to Joshua with clear instructions and Joshua obeyed by leading his people towards the promised land. The promised Land of Israel was not conquered by just praying forever.Yes, the people of Israel was praying but there was also a time where they had to conquer.
Jesus was praying and He was also working throughout Israel by preaching, teaching and perfomring miracles.
The problem with many Christians is that they only stop at the level of prayer. Prayer is very good and I know that there will be special instances where prayer will be the only thing to do. However, in times of prayer and meditation, we should also be able to hear the instructions from the Lord and we should act upon them.
One of the big problems that Christians have, is the fact that they see prayer as a casual monologue where only one person speaks. Prayer is supposed to be a dialogue or a conversation between you and God. We have to go on prayer and Bible meditation with the expectation that God will talk back as in a conversation. A conversation with God can result ,among others,in the creation of information and/or instructions.
The words ‘information’ and instructions are two different things. An information can increase your knowledge or awareness. An instruction is a message that comes with things to do.
When you receive an instruction from God, then go and do what God expects you to do. God has instructed many of children to enter key sectors of society, and yet those children refused to obey…as a result, key societal positions are occupied by the unrighteous.
In our current world, we now have a church that has failed to produce the athletes, the entertainers, the politicians, judges, scientists, farmers, business people, ect…
The more we refuse to obey and embrace our God's calling, the more we will be marching and protesting whenever a strange governmental policy is implemented. Many Christians march in the street because when God called them years ago in position of influence, they disobeyed the call…Now,all they have is ‘marching, protesting and commentating on social media…’
God has called you to rule. Walk towards that calling. Your calling is not just about you, many people will benefit from your obedience.
