Consider Jesus: Heir Of All Things

Let us continue to “consider Jesus.” (Heb. 3:1) 

Heb. 2:1“in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.”

Since He is the true son of theFather, He is the natural and rightful heir. Please note, as Paul did, that “all things have been created through Him and for Him” (Col. 1: 16). 

The scriptures often affirm His rightful ownership. “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father” (Matt. 11:27)  “The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand.”  (Jn. 3:35) “Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands…” (Jn. 13:3)

Jesus Himself also affirmed the same things. “All things that the Father has are Mine” (Jn. 16:16) and “...All things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine” (Jn. 17:10)

It is all His be right of creation and inheritance, from the farthest star to the darkest corner, it all belongs to Him. Satan has taken adverse possession of it as a squatter and a thief and as a leader of others who are with him in staking their illegitimate claim. But the legal and rightful heir will one day take possession back. 

The glorious thing for us it that He has made us to be heirs with Him. (Rom. 8:17; Gal. 3:29, 4:7) He who has all things, including eternal life, has and will fully share them with us.
