OUR LORD'S INHERITANCE
Psalm 24 verse 1 - 2 declares that the whole earth belongs to God and everything that dwells in pa bu by merit of His having founded and established it.
The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
In Psalm 2 verse 7 - 8, the psalmist describes a promise God the Father made to His Son Jesus saying that God will make Jesus the heir to all of God's claims of the earth and everything in it:
He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father.
Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
The scriptures then tell how the Lord will not forsake His inheritance in Psalm 94 verse 12 - 15;
Blessed is the one you discipline, Lord, the one you teach from your law; you grant them relief from days of trouble,till a pit is dug for the wicked.
For the Lord will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance.
Judgment will again be founded on righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it.
Here, our Lord promises not to forsake His inheritance that was given to Him by His Father.
We who believe in the salvation of God through Jesus are His inheritance and we are secured by Jesus' promise and power and authority.
Bless the Lord our God.
