REFLECTIONS: Embracing Your Inheritance

What are you looking to inherit? Money? A house from a parent or grandparents? Some may never receive those things – but we have a far greater inheritance. We get to inherit the Kingdom of God – HERE and NOW. This CITY and the NATIONS are our inheritance. Ps 2:8 and Rom 8:17

READ EZRA 3

God used Zerubbabel and Joshua to lead the Restoration of the Temple. We are God’s temple and He restores us, so that we can take the light of the Kingdom of God to the broken temples in our city and nation. There are many believers in this city who are broken and need restoring. There are many more people who don’t know that God loves them and who need to see the light of God.

The temple of God (His people) needs to be a priority in our hearts.

The temple of God (His people) needs to be a priority in our hearts. This is not the time to panel our houses and neglect the temple. We need to adopt the city and realise that when we adopt someone or somewhere, we take responsibility for the good and the bad things that happen.

  • Are we thanking God for the good things?
  • Are we interceding for the needs?
  • Are we playing our part to bring good things to the city and eliminate the bad?
  • Are we using our God given gifts to bring about Restoration?

Don’t be afraid of this! Let God’s Spirit come upon our spirit as He came upon Zerubbabel and Joshua.

So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty. Zechariah 4:6

LIVE FOR THE NOW AND DONT LIVE IN THE PAST!!!

Be those who rejoice in what God is doing NOW rather than weeping because things aren’t the way they WERE. Ezra 3:11-13

‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”
Haggai 2:9

This is OUR DAY!!!

In the words of Evan Roberts, the Welsh Revivalist – “I WILL have more of the Holy Spirit” He did and a nation was changed.

GOD HAS DONE IT BEFORE, HE CAN DO IT AGAIN!!!
WHY NOT US? WHY NOT NOW?
