Investing Our Inheritance

Investing Our Inheritance

by Pastor Roy Esposito

Ephesians 1:2-11(NKJV)

  1. Every Spiritual Blessing
  2. Grace to be Accepted
  3. Forgiven and Redeemed
  4. Given an Inheritance

Investments can bring an increase in Possessions and/or Influence
Spiritual Investment – Greater influence in new spiritual territory

Proverbs 19:14 – “Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers…”
Ephesians 1:9 – Mystery-(GRK- mysterion) – that which is unable to be understood through natural understanding but is revealed to the initiated.

Deuteronomy 29:29 – Secret things are God’s – Revealed things are ours and our children’s

*** Important – Spiritual Inheritance is NOT for personal consumption.

Inheritance – You get for free what somebody else worked for!
Natural – Get something we didn’t have
Spiritual – Pulls back the veil and reveals what we already have.

“Spending Power”

–A restoration for use, acceptance, activity or vigor after a period of obscurity
A reawakening

To return to life, vitality, and effectiveness
