What Does the Bible Say? - Our Heavenly Inheritance
Inheritance and heirs
Christians can be living in thievery and not even know it. Examples of this could be lying on your tax returns or taking things without permission from your job. Refusing to pay back debts. Thievery starts with coveting and one sin leads to another. God does not deal with this sin lightly.
In the Old Testament , we read that the Patriarch Abraham was a nomad, yet the Book of Genesis recounts that God promised him both a land as his inheritance, and kings and nations as his heir s see Big ideas: Patriarchs. Three generations later, the family unit was more settled. When land and possessions were passed on, the eldest son, the first born, received a double portion, with special blessing s attached.

Right away let me state that this post is based on the Christian conspiracy to deceive people into thinking the Bible speaks of a Christian inheritance. This is not focused on the conspiracy of the so-called Jewish people who currently occupy the physical country called Israel. These claim themselves to be the true natural descendants of biblical Israelites, but in reality, the vast majority are Gentiles. As a result, this post is a necessary reference point as almost all doctrines of Christianity are based on a Christian inheritance. We go deeper to see where the conspiracy came from, so you can see the religion for what it really is. Sadly, we shall see that the whole aim of the creators of Christianity, was to bury the inheritance of Israel for new covenant believers.
