WHOSE INHERITANCE ? ... Passover Meditations for the Monastic-At-Heart... Ephesians 1:11

New Jerusalem, Bride of The LAMB+
Meditations  for Pascha
(The Passover Season, 2016)

Meditations for the Monastic-At-Heart

Now is My+ soul troubled;
and what shall I+ say ...
FATHER,
save ME+
from this hour ?
but for this cause
came I+ unto this hour.

FATHER,
Glorify Thy Name.

Then came there a Voice from Heaven, saying,

I have both glorified IT,
and will glorify IT again.

John12:27-28

Meditation Verse 
Ephesians 1:11

KJV

In WHOM+
also we have obtained
an inheritance,
being predestinated
according to the purpose
of HIM WHO worketh 
all things after the counsel
of HIS own Will:

Literal Greek: 

In WHOM+ also we were allotted , we being pre-defined, according to the setting forth of the working of all things according to the purpose  of HIS Will.

+  +  +

Meditation

We remember: The LORD invites all human beings to come to HIM through JESUS HIS Beloved SON+.

We recall: The FATHER set up a sacrificial system for whosoever would choose to come to HIM through JESUS, the Final PASSOVER LAMB+.

We know: The FATHER ordained ahead of time that humans who "died" with CHRIST and were buried with HIM+ in Baptism... would be chosen to be in a special group, separated and apart from all other human beings.

We understand:  Those "set-apart" ones who voluntarily yield their lives unto CHRIST the LORD are called "the Elect, the Chosen"  because they elected to serve JESUS. They chose to follow HIM+ instead of self. 

We see: This set-apart group who lives for JESUS exists on earth.

Let's look at the Greek once more:

In WHOM+ 
also we were allotted or were inherited
we being pre-defined
according to 
the setting forth of the working of all things 
according to the purpose  
of HIS Will.

Now in Ephesians 1:11,  we see: This set-apart group who lives for JESUS on earth will also live with JESUS in Heaven.

Furthermore, we who delight in JESUS CHRIST not only obtain an inheritance...

we ourselves 
BECOME the inheritance ...

of CHRIST HIMSELF+ !  
(See Revelation 21).

The FATHER has
·                  so ordained it,
·                  pre-planned it and
·                  set the definitions of this plan
·                  before the foundation of the world,  and
·                  HE works all things towards this end... for those who delight in CHRIST.

Do we delight
in CHRIST JESUS?



+  +  +
Let us pray:

Yes, LORD JESUS, we delight in YOU+ !
 
We are happiest when YOU+ are glorified, praised, and worshipped in all our friends, our families, and with all voices.

We see those unsaved ones, LORD, who do not know the terrors awaiting them.

Help us to be more open to talking with them about YOU+, The LIGHT of our life. 

Help us to listen to YOUR+ leading, to bring them to YOU+. 

Help us to care, for YOU+ died in YOUR+ care for each one of us. Amen.


+  +  +
Worthy is the LAMB+.

Worthy is The LAMB+
that was slain.

Worthy is the LAMB+,
slain
from the foundation
of the earth.
Revelation 13:8


+  +  +

PRAISE and THANKSGIVING
be to The FATHER,
and to HIS Beloved SON+
JESUS CHRIST,
and to
the Blessed HOLY SPIRIT.

ONE GOD:
FATHER,
SON+,
and HOLY SPIRIT,
both now and forever,
world without end.
Amen.
