Heir Of All Things
Many, many years ago I made a startling discovery while sitting in a Church pew. At that point in my life I would simply go to Church because of the routine of it. I had already, even a decade ago, learned on my own, that religion was never going to fill my spiritual needs and growing desire.
I began my journey outside of religion, and of course like many people went to “church” thinking I would find the answers there. It wasn’t long before I found that would not be the case.
So, I would go and bring my bible with me to simply sit there and study. I would tune out the preacher, all the singing, everything and I would narrow my focus unto the scriptures and during that time I learned a lot.
It would be at one of these “study sessions” that I would probably make one of the most important finds. Back then it was revolutionary concept, one that today people are just beginning to truly hear.
This morning early as I was studying the scriptures I came across these very passages that opened my eyes to this, greater and more wonderful truth. And it reminded me how very possible all things are for us, with faith.
It begins in Galatians Chapter three and finishes in Galatians four.
So I am simply going to post these verses and then underneath each verse I am going to explain what I believe it to mean. I guarantee this simple, short (I promise), this simple, short study will pack quiet a punch and will wet your appetite for more.
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
This above passage explains a great deal. First, that “Father Abraham” was given a promise. And that promise was that through his faith, ALL THE NATIONS should be blessed and receive the same promise. And by ALL Nations, it means ALL. In fact, the name ABRAHAM literally means, “Father of a Multitude, or Many”.
Now I want to draw your attention to who the promises were made. It was to Abraham and HIS SEED (what comes out of Abraham).
You would think that SEED as Isaac, but as we continue to read this simple verse, we find the SEED is a very specific SEED.
It isn’t MANY SEEDS, it is ONE SEED. Meaning there is NO OTHER SEED, only this specific SINGLE SEED.
Then the passage goes unto to explain what this SINGLE SEED is. It is indeed, CHRIST! That’s right, Abraham’s SEED IS CHRIST.
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, WHICH IS CHRIST.
Now I need you to hang unto that. Remember that, Abraham’s seed is ONE SEED, and that ONE SEED is CHRIST. (Which we know is the Power and Wisdom of God REVEALED IN US. “Christ IN us, the hope of Glory”.)
So far you wouldn’t think this is a startling discovery, but what I am about to show you is. Just a bit further in this chapter we read.
27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Once you are IMMERSED(which is what baptized means) into Christ (The Power and Wisdom of God) you have put on CHRIST (the Power and Wisdom of God).
Now the words “Put On Christ” may sound a lot like putting on a Tee-Shirt, but it literally translates to “Enter”. In other words, if someone showers you with the truth of God, or if you yourself are being immersed with the truth of God, then you ENTER INTO THE POWER AND WISDOM OF GOD yourself.
Now once you enter into this TRUTH, you begin to see everyone as yourself, and yourself as everyone. There is no one that is separate, we are all one.
You begin to understand we are all ONE in the very same POWER AND WISDOM, which is CHRIST, which is OUR LIFE, which is ABRAHAM’S SEED!
28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
As I stated, we are all ONE, there is no difference in Christ Jesus (the Power and Wisdom of God’s Salvation).
By the way, for those that don’t know, Jesus in Greek literally translates to “Jehovah (God) is Salvation.”
But it is the next verse that is going to get your attention. READ IT CAREFULLY! And remember what I asked you to remember… about how many SEEDS Abraham had (One) and who that SEED is (Christ).
29And if you be Christ’s, THEN YOU ARE ABRAHAM’S SEED (Christ), and heirs according to the promise.
Isn’t that something? That verse literally states WHO YOU ARE… You are ABRAHAM’S SEED, and we know that ABRAHAM’S SEED IS CHRIST.
That verse could be read.
“And if you be Christ’s, then you are CHRIST, and heirs according to the promise”
I know that is a lot to take in.
It’s one thing to say we are a part of CHRIST. But it is a whole other thing for the Apostle Paul to come right out and say, “You are Christ!”
Well if that is what he meant, then the following verse should back that up… RIGHT? And boy does it!
1Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
Look at what Paul calls you and I, and everyone on this planet, he calls us HEIRS! And we are, but let me break down what he is really saying.
The HEIR (you and I), even though one verse earlier we find out that the HEIR/SEED is CHRIST, and is US, the heir differs nothing from a slave. Meaning, the heir doesn’t seem to be very Royal…
Paul needs to further explain why people still don’t grasp this. He says, that the HEIR as long as he is a CHILD (which means immature in the faith) is no different from a servant/slave…
Now doesn’t that sound like many of us at the moment? How many are living like “Kings” reading this? Few, I would gather. No, most of us are suffering through the cares of this world, most are hurting, most are in the chains of debt, health problems, fear, worry, and doubt… we are more like miserable down trodden slaves, than HEIRS AND LORD OF EVERYTHING, aren’t we?
Well Paul, understood this, that is why he said that so long as we are immature in our faith, we will APPEAR like slaves. But appearances can be deceiving. Because WE ARE HEIRS! But not just heirs, we are LORD OF EVERYTHING! WE ARE CHRIST! ALL THINGS MADE BY US, THROUGH US, FOR US!
1Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be LORD OF ALL;
How can this be? If we are LORD OF EVERYTHING how have we missed it?
The reason is simple, we are CHILDREN. We have not yet truly matured into the Truth. We are only just beginning to find our way back to who we are.
And how do we find our way back? Well people and events have been purposed for our lives to bring us to the UNDERSTANDING that we are indeed LORD OF ALL!
2But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father
There is a time that has been appointed for us all. There is going to come a time when we will rule and reign with Christ… Which means WE WILL RULE AND REIGN OUR LIVES WITH THE POWER AND WISDOM OF GOD!
We will come to the UNITY OF THE FAITH and reach the full stature of the perfect man, Christ.
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ
So hang in there, have great hope for who you are, who you will find yourself to be, and all that will be accomplished in you.
These are the greater things we shall do people. We are ignorant for but a moment, we feel like slaves for but a moment, we are like children for but a moment.
But every child one day becomes a man or woman, they put off childish ignorance and they claim their birth right. Heir of All Things!
In that day, nothing will stand against us again. Never forget who you are, for you are ABRAHAMS SEED which is CHRIST, and YOU are LORD OF EVERYTHING!

“the Truth Will Change You”
Another great message; thanks again for all that you are doing to shine the light of truth Jacob.
I have noticed and struggled with learning, how the religious/flesh/carnal/ignorance thats in me is fighting against the Truth. At times i have to walk away and come back to the Bible studies later or for another day, you get frustrated and even stressed out. But when you go away and come back later and you had time to ponder on it, then Truth becomes! Also taking in so much makes you feel stressed, and that battle inside of you is raging within, fighting against the Truth, and that does not feel good. I guess thats why He does not give us too much at once, only what we can handle and its a step by step process. We can’t handle being overwhelmed, it stresses us and frustrates us, but walking away and coming back later or the next day, really helps. We have to ponder what we have taken into us and learn from it and let it settle in, and then the battle inside be calmed, and peace comes and then you can return to the studies, fresh and renewed.
Prov 25:16 ” Have thou found honey? Eat only what you need, that you not have it in excess and vomit it.”
All things made by us, through us, for us! We are lord of everything, matured in the TRUTH, finding our way back to who we are, being under tutors until the time appointed of the Father. We are Heirs! Being a child/immature, not growing in Truth, is no different from a slave/servant. And thats how you feel in this world until you come into the Truth and mature, christ the power and wisdom of God, to the glory of God. All things made by us, creating is in our true nature, I believe thats why some people create with their hands continually, they love to create, its our true nature. And in this material world, we create with our hands, I make reborn dolls look like real NB babies up to 9 mos old, I also have pekingese I breed and have pups, bred for quality and colors and health. Thru these I meet lots of people and share the truth with them, plus it gives them a cuddly friend to hug and kiss on, exspecially the elderly, or the empty nest symdrome. I relate my dogs to how they never take their eyes off of you, you are their master and they look to you for everything, shelter, food, warmth, love, they are loyal, always by yourside, if i go out of their sight they panic and get upset, scream, they want to go everywhere i go, they do not want to leave their masters side, their eyes are always on you. What does that tell you about us and Almighty God? We can learn from our dogs, and kept our eyes on Abba Father always, not turning to the left or the right, and fully trusting Him to take care of ALL of our needs. And He promises never to leave you!
Amen Brother!!! This is conformation…Praise God!!!
Beautiful, as He is! Thank you for sharing. I, too, had a revelation several years ago, that there HAD to be more of Christ…now all I want is to learn of Him! The Lord revealed Himself through Galatians.How could we have been so far off…He’s here, right NOW…waiting for US….Blessings to you Jacob!
I am so happy to hear how the essay clicked with you, I have many of those “aha” moments as well and think the same thing… “It was there all the time, how come it took me so long to find it?” lol… I hope to hear from you again, have an amazing week and thanks again. Jacob
Gotcha, Bro….and with all the mistranslations and grammatical errors that we know are in there, gotta wonder if the statement “if you are Christ’s” (possessive, with this punctuation) might have been an error, and could have been PLURAL (if you be Christs) as in many, as in the many-membered, yet SINGLE body of Christ. Thinking there is a verse somewhere that I am too tired to look up right now about a scripture saying “you are gods (many) instead of “God’s (possessive). Bottom line is….no matter, we still are THAT from which we came, the SEED. How in the world can we believe anything else? Good post, dude.
Debi, I have thought about that too. How funny! Thank you so much for the comment, have the best weekend ever.
You nailed this one brother…

Right on Patrick, I sure hope it continues man and thank you so much for the kind words they mean the world to me. Peace
we are learning to push the faith father has given us in spit of what things look like. i was once told the blessings of abraham was on my life yes and i believe it.
“In that Day”, We were all created in our Fathers image and likeness being perfect as our Father and creator is perfect. Being Sons of God and Heirs to a heavenly kingdom and to His knowledge and wisdom all things are truly ours because we are ever with Him. Many are now coming to the understanding that they have already received their inheritance and no man can take their crown (being the knowledge and wisdom we have received from the Father). All the Father has is ours. Think on this and grasp the truth within these words.
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. (KJV)
Wonderful Revelation of Truth Brother
All that I have is thine! LOVE THAT! Thanks for the comments and support Sam, it means a lot. Keep on Triking! J
