When peter was being sad due to the thought of physical separation with Jesus Christ, he was given the divine assurance of eternal inheritance security. But this peace is not connected with the present or past, in spite of this it is linked with the most stunning event that will happen in the future. At this time whole world is in the search of peace. Especially in the midst of turmoil and fearsome events looking at the words of Christ can become a source of heartily and true peace.
(A)- ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL INHERITANCE SECURITY IS JESUS
Jesus said "Let not your heart be troubled"
World is facing worse situation. A Greek word "Kardia" and Hebrew word "Leb" means mind, will and emotions.
The world has lost its grip on the unholy plans of terrorism........Suicidal attacks.
There is no peace in the world....The nations and kingdoms are busy in wars.
Humankind is under the fear of physical death.
The media is telecasting the heart troubling news.
Spiritual deception, false Christians, ethnic and political wars, imbalance of worldwide economic system, earthquakes, pestilences, hatred against the God's chosen nation has become the major cause of mental and heart disorders.
(B)- ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL INHERITANCE SECURITY by
FOLLOWING THE BIBLICAL FAITH ON GOD AND HIS BEGOTTEN
(Jesus said: "Ye believe in God, believe in me")
Jewish people believed on the Jehovah.It were their faith that God can set them free from any crucial and inescapable situation.
Jesus claimed that He is God.
To believe on the God means that ye are not atheist and by putting your faith on Jesus you become Christian. Christ teaches about the personal faith.
Jesus has power over storms and eternal death. He has paid the full price for our sins on the cross.
(C)- ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL INHERITANCE SECURITY IS IN JESUS
Jesus said: "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you"
This is true promise....read Mathew 24:34
No one will be homeless............When Jesus came he was homeless.
That promise is to enter His own in the father's mansions. The inheritance for the family of God. New Born souls. (John 3:5).
He has suffered for our sins, gave His life on the cross.....has gone to prepare heavenly homes for His own.
His love and faithfulness is great.
No one can separate us from His love.
(D)- ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL INHERITANCE SECURITY IS IN THE
PROMISE OF THE LORD:
Jesus said: "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also"
That inheritance has already been prepared by our Lord. The Bible says "To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time" (1-Peter 1:4-5).
Jesus is coming back. Revelation 22:12 "Behold I am coming soon"
All dead and alive believers since Pentecost will be taken to heavenly places.
Our blessed hope (Titus 2:13).
Conclusions: Let us put our whole trust upon the Lord and be strong in the Christian and biblical faith. The central figure of Christian faith is Jesus Christ the rock of Church. Jesus can come at any moment.
Praise the Lord risen Lord Jesus Christ.
