Foundations of many generations

IAN JOHNSON

Jun 01, 2005

When a wealthy man dies He passes his riches on to the next generation, to his children. The thing is! Every man woman and child has a great wealth in the spirit set aside for them. But few ever inherit

God has given us this inheritance. Not worked for not deserved. We get it simply because we were born into the right family!

EPHESIANS 1:3-5

3 How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we belong to Christ. 4 Long ago, even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure.

What about all the blessings that the saints of old have amassed now that they have passed on into glory? Where have these blessings gone?

What did our forefathers leave us as an inheritance? On the surface, it looks like the answer is "nothing" because we really only have a limited understanding about some of the revivals that went on 200 years ago. 400 years ago 800 years ago in fact all the way back to the revival of 33AD.

For instance The Apostle Thomas went to India, saw thousands saved, saw thousands transformed out of darkness into light. There was a glory that the Apostles walked in. A raising of the dead glory. This inheritance belongs to the Church in India. God cared enough for India to send one of the Apostles to that nation. Thomas won a great inheritance for the Church in India; His blood stained her soil and still cries out to this day. An open heaven was won over the Land of India and is still there to this day.

There are bank accounts around the world that have not been touched or claimed for 30~ 60~ 100 years. There will also be rightful heirs for these riches. But they have never stepped forward to claim their riches. Some may even be living a pauper’s life not knowing how to gain what is owing!

There is a story of a very poor man who won a free trip on a cruise liner, every night he would go out on deck and stare longingly through the ships restaurant window the food looked so delicious. Some time later one of the crew saw the man and said can I get you a table tonight Sir, to which the man replied Oh no I could never afford that meal, the crew member laughed and said Sir don’t you realise the food in the restaurant is free as part of the cruise. We may laugh at this story but the truth is we have such riches at our disposal and yet we stand outside the window wishing we could partake. Its all been paid for in Jesus! Its part of the cruise! Enter in and enjoy.

I believe the Lord is going to release an anointing on certain believers for bringing restoration that will cause men and women to come into inheritances that have been lost for many generations. Intercessors, who will call in the wealth of the kingdom again.

Thats why Im going to India in September. I want to see the glory of the Apostles released again. But it will be with interest; just like those bank accounts that haven’t been touched they continue to accrue interest. The blood of Thomas has been crying out since 72AD now that’s alot of interest!

What about New Zealand? Well we have heaps of mighty men and woman who have gone before us but who have never left their Spiritual wealth to anyone! Its time to pick it up again. Time for the intercessors to call in the great wealth in the Spirit that awaits the Church

Isaiah 49: 8: "Thus says the Lord, in an acceptable time I’ve heard you. In the day of salvation I’ve helped you. I will preserve you and give you as a covenant to the people to restore the earth, to cause them to inherit the desolate inheritances."

Isaiah 58:12: "Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In."

Foundations of many generations

When I was a child a great storm came and blew the fertiliser bin at the airstrip on the farm away. The only thing left was the concrete floor and the foundations for along time the building lay in ruins, but one year my Father built again on the old foundations a fine new fertiliser bin. Once again the aircraft flew off that airstrip full of fertiliser for the pastures, once again growth came, and there was activity on the land again.
