The Testament


Okay. Let’s talk about Wills today. It is a legal concept but it also has spiritual usefulness. What is a will? It is a testamentary document i.e. it begins to speak from the death of the testator. As Christians, Jesus being our Father made a Will before His death.

Christ wanted us to have eternal life just like Him. But we couldn’t access that eternal life if He didn’t lose His own life. The Bible also gives credence to this fact in Hebrews 9: 16 – 17 when it says, ‘For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

Another legal principle is that you cannot give what you do not have. If Christ did not have eternal life, there is no way He could Will it to us, no matter how much He loved us. But the fact is that He had it and this is why He was able to gift this eternal life to us in His Will and the gift did not fail.

We know the gift did not fail because if it had, He wouldn’t have risen up in the 3rd day. But He did. He rose up. And because of this rising up, every other thing on earth and in heaven and even in hell has to bow to His authority.

So when you begin to doubt the inheritance you acquired when you gave your life to Christ, remember this; the grave could not hold him captive so whatever other lower power at work in your life does not have the leave of God to hold you captive.

You come from old money, your salvation was settled way back, don’t act like you don’t have an inheritance in Christ.
