The Mystery of God's Will


Eph 3:6
This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.

There was a time in this world when for thousands of years the only people who had access to God and a relationship with Him were Jews. They were the only race that was God’s people and God indeed was their God. Because of their relationship with God, they knew that they were blessed above and beyond all other races, not only with a physical blessing that makes for material prosperity and good health, but also with a spiritual blessing that makes for an eternal relationship and with God- among other things.
The reason why the Jews had this great advantage over other earthly races was because their father was a man who had a very close relationship with God (when others were busy in debauchery and idol worship), and God blessed him and his seed. The Jews knew they were children of Abraham and recipients of God’s blessings on the earth.
The truth is that they were right in this notion. God had a plan to put an end to the segregation by sending Jesus to come and die on the cross for us. Thus, those who are now joined with Jesus have received all spiritual blessings in heavenly places; the same blessing with which God blessed Abraham when He rewarded Abraham with Himself. ‘I am your shield and exceeding great reward’- there was nothing greater that existed that God would have rewarded Abraham with.
You have to know that you are now a spiritual descendant of Abraham; an heir of these divine promises. You have this blessing that even the Jews could never really bring to its full potential. God wants you to walk in this blessing and live a life that glorifies Him on the earth.
Prayer: My father in heaven, I thank you for your blessing upon my life. I ask that you help me live in the light of this your revelation and please you today and always. Amen
