the israelites
The Israelites
  • The Exodus from Egypt was all about God leading them to their inheritance
  • There were prerequisites to them receiving their inheritance, they needed to prove they were worthy of that inheritance
  • That generation failed. The next generation did better, but the children of Israel never completely received the inheritance

Receiving the inheritance
  • To receive the inheritance, they needed to kick out the current inhabitants of the land.
  • Judah (led by Caleb) had no issue, some of the others did.
  • Some of them embraced this, others just kept waiting (Joshua 18 – still 7 to go)
    • Reuben, Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh

  • So God has made you an offer.
  • Eph 1:7-23 – some of the verse was removed to highlight the words that reinforce my point
      • In Him we have redemption, forgiveness of sins, all wisdom and prudence, made known the mystery of His will, we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. You were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. 22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Eph 1:7-23 (NKJV)
