The Bible says that Christ is the only one worthy to open the scroll – the final “will” and plan for mankind. Revelation 5:1-5. What Christ has provided us through the sacrifice of His death is more than just being saved. Christ also gives us redemption of our life, our family; physical and spiritual deliverance from anything negative that would possess us. This redemption and deliverance comes through Christ accepting our sins and covering them with His blood. Jesus is victor over death and hell. We can only receive our inheritance because of the sacrifice of Jesus.
Our ‘Brother’, Jesus, is our kinsman redeemer. He who was, is and ever will be (Rev 1:8) is holding our inheritance until the time we share in the glory of Heaven. The blessings we experience in our lives here on earth are only a trickle down from what we will have in Heaven. Now isn’t that an awesome thought?!
I was looking at some other songs but ended up selecting this older song
which really seems to fit the message today.
Blessed Messiah, My Redeemer
Revelation 5:5 (NIV)
5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
I thank the Lord for the inheritance I look forward to and for the many blessings showered on me now.
