6 Scriptural Reasons To Change The World

James Preston Reply 7:46 AM
Today I want to encourage and remind you with a very short breakdown of your inheritance as a child of God!
Many people wonder who my influences are in light of my passion to see the World Changed.  Primarily; from revelation of Scripture.  Here is a key passage that I trust would give you similar revelation...

Hebrews 2:8 - 11 
Now in putting everything in subjection to Him, He left nothing outside His control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to Him. (9) But we see Jesus....... (11) For He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Source. That is why He is not ashamed to call them brothers.

This verse jumped at me last night, and I hope many of you are as encouraged and blessed as I was!

1.  Everything is subjected to Jesus
Everything means everything.  Everything we see and don't see has been placed under the authority of Jesus.  Absolutely everything must submit to the authority of Jesus.

2.  Not everything is obeying, yet
While Jesus has been given authority over everything, not everything is listening, just yet.  This is why we still see sickness, corruption, evil, operating in the world.  There will come a time when the authority of Jesus will be seen and experienced by everything in the Universe.  And when they do, they will love it!  As Bill Johnson says:  "Everyone wants a King like Jesus."

3.  Look to Jesus in spite of current circumstances
Despite the fact that not everything is yet subject to the authority of Jesus, keep your focus on Him.  Don't look at your circumstances, or even the circumstances of this world.  Look to Him.  When life gets you down, seeing Jesus and all He has done for you will inspire you and keep you pressing on toward claiming our inheritance.

4.  Jesus our Saviour and we who are Saved come from the same DNA
Jesus is the One who sanctifies us (makes us holy).  And we have been sanctified by Him (made holy by Him).  We share the same Source:  God.  We have the same Father as Jesus!  We are Godly not by what we do, but by our DNA!  By who our Father is!

5.  We are the brothers and sisters of Jesus
Jesus is indeed our Saviour and King.  But we are kings and queens with Him!  We have been brought into the family of God and now share the same inheritance as our Big Brother!

6.  That means everything is subjected to YOU
If you are a brother or sister of Jesus, and you share the same Father, then you share the same inheritance!  Part of that inheritance is Point 1; everything has been placed under your authority.

This promise is all over Scripture!  Most notably in Romans 8:17:
Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ.

All that this means is that you can get out there and not let anything stand in your way.  Because the world is your inheritance!  For the Glory of the King.

May you walk in your inheritance, brothers and sisters.
