Colossians · Exegesis of Light

The Inheritance of the Saints

“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:”
[Colossians 1:12]

 

O boy! Have you seen the Inheritance bequeathed to us by Jesus? Do you know? Have you seen the Father’s will? Have you read those stirring words?…

Romans 8:17: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Revelation 2:26-28
V 26: and he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
V 27: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
V 28: And I will give him the morning star.

2Thessalonians 2:14: whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 5:10: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Revelations 20:4: And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Romans 13:11-14
V 11: And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
V 12: The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
V 13: Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
V14: But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Let us all enter into the fullness of our calling in Christ. Let us all take our place as sons…yea, joint heirs with Jesus. Let us all see the thrones set before us by the Father….and then let us understand why indeed the school of the Spirit to which we are enrolled must be accorded the highest allegiance; then let us understand the purpose of our sojourn here and now- it is opportunity to be built up in the Word of His Grace…it is opportunity to lift up a brother from the murky depths of Adam into the sun bathed beams of the realm of Light in Christ!
Let us all see and awaken! For the Day draws near. Selah…
