ACCESSING YOUR ASSETS IN THE KINGDOM (Part III)

“For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:17)

We have established in the last three teachings that God has given us a great and precious inheritance. Our responsibility is to search them out by engaging kingdom principles to gain access into them. “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires” (2 Peter 1:3-4). So far we have outlined six (6) of such principles to gain access into our inheritance. Now, we will be discussing the last two principles of access.

  • Access through Positive Confession:

Having possessed the knowledge of what is yours in Christ Jesus, you need to confess the same regularly even when the prevailing circumstances is contrary to what is written in the Bible. That is why God instructed Joshua in Joshua 1:8: “Keep this Book of the law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”  There is an incredible power in positive confession. Life and death are actually in the power of the tongue. When you confess what the word of God says over the situation of your life God is happy and He responds immediately to bring His word to pass. That is why Paul says in Colossian 3:16, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…”

  • Your Access through knowledge contacted from anointed books:

When you give yourself to serious and purposeful reading, you afford yourself access to revelation others have laboured to discover. Every reader is a leader. When you read, your horizon is expanded and you see things ahead of others. The truth is when you stand on the shoulders of those who have gone ahead, you will definitely see farther. A lot of secrets are embedded on pages of books and these become the inheritance of those who bother to search it out. Paul said; “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Tim.2:15). Paul was a good example of a great leader. He wouldn’t go anywhere without his books with him. This is evident in this instruction: “When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments” (2 Tim. 4:13). Of course, Jesus Christ the greatest leader that ever lived was a great reader when he was on earth (Luke 2:46-47)

CONCLUSION:

A good way to conclude this piece is to join Apostle Paul in praying, “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, 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, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hands in the heavenly places” (Eph. 1:17-20).
