Bill Winston - Receiving Your Inheritance

Hello. I'm Bill Winston and welcome to another program. The program that you're watching is called the Believers Walk of Faith, where we walk by faith and not by sight. We have an exciting program for you today. We're teaching on Receiving Our Inheritance. Now, we have an inheritance that was provided for us through the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. It's in the New Testament. What we can have, what we can be, what we can do. It's all written in there. Now, we have to receive that. The way we have to do it is by faith.

Now, in this particular teaching today, we're showing you that God never intended for the church to be detached from world. Now, what am I saying? We're to be in the world, but not of the world. As we go into that world, God expects to raise us up in that world so we dominate in the world. I call it taking the mountaintops, controlling the mountains. Now, when I say mountains, I mean the different spheres of influence that are in our world today: media, education, government, business, so forth and so on. He meant for us, the church, the people, to be in control of every one of those mountains. Now, we need to talk about that and how to do it. Get your Bibles and pens and some papers ready. Get ready to take some good notes. Let's go into it. It's called Receiving Our Inheritance.

We have an obligation, a responsibility, and an authority to possess this entire planet. Now, according to the Bible, everything in this earth belongs to us. Now, I don't know about you, but if it belongs to me, I want mine. I'll thank you for it. Now, in this, they fear if you refuse to be terrified of your enemies are bound to be destroyed. If you refuse to be terrified of your enemies, your enemies are bound to be destroyed. Now, I'm going to leave that for just a moment, but I'm showing you that He's going on an assignment because he's headed up this mountain, you see it in imagination and he's headed up this mountain. But the enemy had a system to stop it. But he broke through the system and dismantled the system. Wow, you've got to see it.

See, because he's running people through the system. It's a system that's governing people's lives and no one can beat the system. The only one that can beat the system is Jesus. But now Jesus has given the church authorization to beat the system. Say amen to that. I'm telling you I have had people coming here "See pastor I can't find any job. He said, I'm just as I am. While I've been incarcerated and every time I go out and get a job and they see that I've been incarcerated and so forth, and I got a record and they won't hire me and so forth. He said, should I just leave that off and kind of lie on the form a little bit"? I said, no, Dogue. I say, integrity is what the same works through. I said, here's what you do. Let's agree right now that you're going to get that job. If God has to put his hand over your application. Say amen to that he's going to do it.

Brother came back, had a job. He said they read everything and they said that's all right. We're going to train you in a way and so forth. You see what I'm saying? What did he need? He needed favor from God. You see what I'm saying? And the system tries to get you to cooperate with the system, so 'cause the system is dishonest, the system is full of... You folks are going to say lies and everything. You don't need to do that. You can go in there straight up. I said straight up and God will give you favor. Say amen to that. Amen, he gives favor to the righteous. So he'll have them people to want to have you in there and treat you better than anybody else that's in there.

Oh, I know what I'm talking about. Come on now, but what I'm saying is that's by faith. You have to get that by faith. That doesn't come any other way. You can't get it in the flesh. You got to get it by faith. You've got to receive it my faith. Now I'm going to show you this in just a minute. Go over to Daniel with me real quick, Daniel Chapter six alright. The people that tried to stop Daniel from rising. He was going to the mountaintop and the people who tried to stop him were all these people who got together to scheme against Daniel and so forth. They threw Daniel in the lion's den. Did the lion eat Daniel? No, but he was hungry. Let me prove that to you. Verse 24 please, verse 24. And the king commanded and they brought those men which had accused Daniel and they cast him where? Into the den of lions, them, their who? Children keep going. Their what? Rover and no, I didn't say that, and the lions had the mastery of them and break all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.

Now, so the people who will come against you are going to be the people that are going to suffer. You got to hear what I'm saying. When they set a trap for you, they're gonna fall in it themselves. Alright. Verse 28. So Daniel did what? He prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian. So notice here's Daniel and he's working on getting to the top. So my point to you is that you have been gifted to come into those areas and God's going to raise you up. Now here's the thing that you don't want. You don't want God to raise you up and you say, look, what I did. Now, is somebody here with me? Okay, look what I did.

Now let me show you this. Turn to Daniel Chapter two please. Daniel Chapter two. Now this is for you. This is going to be kind of deep now, but I'm trusting that you're going to be able to get this right. This is the case where the king had a dream, Nebuchadnezzar. He didn't know what he dreamed or what it meant, but his sleep went from him. In other words, something disturbed him about the dream. So verse two, the king commanded to call the magicians, astrologists, the sorcerers and Chaldeans for them to show the king his dream.

So they came and stood before the king and the king said to them, "'I've dreamed a dream and my spirit was troubled to know the dream'. Then spake the Chaldeans to the king of Syria. Okay. 'Live forever. Tell thy servants the dream and we will show you interpretation'. The king answered and said to the Chaldeans 'The thing is gone for me. If you will not make known unto me the dream with interpretation thereof, you shall be cut in pieces and your houses shall be made a dungeon'". In other words, I'm going to cut your neck off. If you don't tell me what our dream and tell me quick I'm going to execute you. But if you show me the dream, interpretation of the dream, you shall receive from me gifts and rewards. So they were properly motivated both ways.

Verse seven, "They answered again and said, 'let the king tell the servants the dream and we will show you the interpretation of it'. The king answered and said, 'Hey, I know of a certainty that you would gain the time because you see the thing is gone from me, but if you will not make known to me the dream there is but one decree for you for it, so forth and so on'".

Verse 14. "Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon. He answered incentive to Arioch, the king's captain. 'Why is the decree so hasty from the King'? Then Arioch made the king, the thing known to Daniel. Then Daniel went in and desired of the king that he would give him time and that he would show the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah his companions, that they would desire mercies of God of heaven concerning the secret. This secret that Daniel and his followers should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then was the secret revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of Heaven and Daniel answered and said, 'Blessed be the name of God forever and ever for wisdom and might are'", who's?

All right. Stop right there. God has gifted you. And the Bible says a man's gift do what? Make room for him and bring him before great men. Proverbs Chapter 18, in verse 16. I read you a scripture that you have an anointing for 10 times better than the world does. So you have something inside of you and upon you called an anointing. A short definition for it is the performance enhancer, that this anointing is going to be there to be on top of your gift and it's going to raise you up above the people of the world. Turn to Exodus Chapter seven. Let me know when you get there. Are you there? Look at verse 10, and Moses and Aaron went into Pharaoh and they did so as the Lord commanded, and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servant and it became a what? A serpent. Then Pharaoh also called his wise men and the sorceress now the magicians of Egypt, and they did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man, his rod and they became serpents, but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.

My point to you is that your gift plus the anointing is going to swallow up every gifting that they might have and place you on top in control of the high places that God... Now to get this to work, you've got to believe it. Because oh, Jesus. These, the blessings God cannot bless without you asking for it. But when you ask, you have to ask in faith. Now I want you to hear me. The church has still been walking with the world. Now when I say that I mean your abilities far exceed the world. And what you have to do is in Daniel's case here is the king, nobody in their natural gifting could solve the problem. But the annoying plus gifting solved the king's problem.

My point to you is, is that the world folks, understand internet, Microsoft and all that. Suppose I tell you that there's a level above that, that will obsolete the system that's out there right now. See, the same thing happened in flying. They didn't believe that folk was born to fly, but the Wright brothers came along, but then after they got that somebody said, "No, we can fly much faster than that". And they said well, how is that going to happen? What did they have to do? They had to go to a new generation of flying called a jet engine. I was talking to a man and he said, "Hey, you know oil is counterfeit water". I said, "What"? Suppose instead of having to put oil in your car and get emissions, you can run it on water. Whatever gifting and sphere of influence you in, God wants to give you an idea.

I'm telling you folks, the educational system, there is a new level that we can go to. There's a way we can go and be able to teach kids that we have never been able to teach before. But it's like the church has best been operating down there with the world and competing for that space. Listen folks, you are so far above that space. Can you take my word for it? Listen, Daniel didn't know what God was going to tell him, but he did know this. He said, "King, give me a couple of days. I'll be back with an answer". I remember a man called me. He's the CEO of one of the large fortune 500 corporations around in this whole area and said, "Hey, I need to do something for these kids in inner city. I need to know what to do for them". And I went and met with him. Went and met with him, so forth. He said, "Yeah, I'm just starting it and me and some other people and some other people and Chairman of Newsweek". We were talking and so forth.

I said, okay. He said, "I'm looking to do something for them". I said "I tell you what, give me seven days and I'll come back and tell you what to do". Now. I didn't know what to do, but I knew that I had contact with the wisdom of God. Turn over to Proverbs Chapter two real quick. Proverbs Chapter two. See we've got to take those mountains 'cause whoever controls the mountains controls the sphere of influence. And we're coming in, the Bible says, wisdom is better than weapons of war. You don't need to go in and choke nobody or hold a gun on nobody. You don't need to do that. Just use wisdom and you can bring them over to your side. Are you all with me?

Alright. Now? What did I tell you to turn? Proverbs Chapter Two, and look what it says in verse six. For the Lord giveth wisdom, out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth out what? Sound wisdom for who? The righteous. He is a buckler to them that walketh uprightly. So he's laying up sound wisdom for you. Isn't he laying it our for you? Now, if he laid it up for you, then you're going to have to get it and God cannot bless without you asking for it. God cannot bless without you placing a demand on the covenant. Are you following what I'm saying? You've got to hear me.

All right, turn to James, James Chapter one, all the way back by the book of Revelation. James Chapter one, verse five. If any of you lack what? The wisdom, let him what? Ask of God that giveth what? To all men what? Liberally and what? Upbraideth not. And what will happen, it shall be given him, but let him ask how? Let him ask how? In faith. Nothing what? Wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think. Keep going, that he shall receive anything of the Lord. We can out run the world.

See when they are coming up with it, then they're getting the money for it. They're the ones who are controlling everything, but if we can control that mountain top, if we won't bow down, if we will stay with God and not shrink away from problems because we have access to the wisdom of God to solve any problem that's in his heart. Praise God. Look what it says here in verse 14. This is a confidence that we have in who? Him. That if we ask come on anything according to his will, what does he do? He hears us and if we know that he what? Hear us, whatever we ask, keep going. We know we have what? The what? We have the petition that we desired of him.

Now, this is why I want to take it. Come on. This receiving our inheritance. I want to take to this. I want to take it to the fact that now where are you are in order for things to work in your life, you must leave the realm of the senses, Where are you are now there's nothing in your senses that can contact this. Whatever you want that are involved. Nothing. That your relationship from this point on with God in terms of the things you desire, you need a what? Have nothing to do with anything you can feel, see, taste, touch and smell from this day forward, they have nothing to do with it. They have nothing to do with it. God is sending you to take rulership, to take over. But as you go in there, you're going to have to do it by faith.

But if you're looking to do it by faith, faith means that you've left a sense route. That no longer are you looking to your senses to tell you anything in terms of good or bad or indifferent or whether you have it or whether you don't. Your senses are not involved. So the natural senses belong to the natural man. You are not the natural man. You are spiritual man and you are going in and possess things, but you're going to have to take him by faith. Say Amen to that.

Abraham Lincoln signed the emancipation proclamation, and when he signed it, every slave was made free. Now, they had to simply believe what was signed and act on it. So suppose the slaves would have looked around and said, "Well, I don't look like I'm free, they act in the same way. They talk in the same way. Then the winter slaves had been freed". Now, they had been legally freed, but they had never acted on what was legally written. Why? Because sometimes they're looking around seeing if things agree with what's written legally. But I'm telling you right now from this day forward, in order for you to receive your inheritance in your promised land, you're going to operate in a level that is beyond anything that you can see, that you can feel, that your emotions will tell you or anything. You are not in that realms anymore.

So when it comes time to solve the problem, you're not going to look and just look at your natural intellectual program mind. Go to look and say, Lord, I need an answer to this problem. Say amen to that. Because this is what Daniel did. He went in to seek the mercies of God. He said, "Lord, I need an answer. I need you not call me to tell me what the king dream, but I need you to give me the interpretation for what he dreamed".

Now this is the confidence that you have in him. That if you ask anything according to his will, he just heard you. And if he heard you, you know have. I said, you know you have. You know you? The petition you desired of him. Now I'm telling you all this because not only is your wisdom there, but your provisions are there. Your rent money is there. Your healing is there. Come on your marriage being made whole is there. Your victory is there. Your esteem is there. Everything that you need is in this book, but the way you're going to get it, is fight for it. But the fight that you're going to fight is the good fight of faith.

PART 2
Once you are born again, there is an inheritance for you, but will not be delivered unto you beyond your level of growth. Now, let's go to Acts 20 one more time, please. Are you with me? Verse 32, "And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to", do what to you? "Build you", what? "Up and give you", what? "An inheritance". Keep going, "Among all them which are sanctified". So, before I get the inheritance, I've got to be what? Built up. And the primary thing that God uses to build you up with is the Word of God. So he uses his word to build you up. Now, here's what it says over in the gospels. "Man shall not live by", what? "Bread alone, but by", what? "Every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God".

So, you do not live by natural food alone, but you need some spiritual food. And the spiritual food that you need comes primarily from the Word of God. Say amen to that. So, for you to live and be strong in your spirit, you need to be built up. And you got to be built up with the Word of God. Let's say you are not getting any spiritual food. Now, the only other food that you're getting is natural. And what is the natural food doing? It's strengthening the flesh. So, now my flesh is strong and my spirit is weak. No wonder I keep doing what I don't want to do. Because I have no resistance on the inside to keep me from making that step that my flesh wants to make. Are you following what I'm saying?

So, every day you should have a little devotional. You should have a little book that tells you two or three scriptures and just give your spirit something that your spirit can say, "Ah, thank you, Jesus". Because your spirit is hungry for the Word of God just like your flesh is hungry for something to eat! Why do we go on fast? We don't go on fast to move God, we go on fast to move our flesh. Our flesh is blocking the way to our inheritance. Now, do you follow what I'm saying?

Now we've got to grow up. There are three stages in this growing up. So, let me just show you this. Are you all with me here? See, the quality of your intake determines the strength of your output. Say amen to that. It said Jesus had fasted 40 days and then he came back in the power of the Spirit. And the devil tempted him and said, "Hey, if you bow down to me, all this will be yours". Jesus wouldn't have to deal with it, he said, "Get thee behind me, you rascal, you". I'm saying that when you're strong in your spirit, you can resist sin. You can resist the things of the devil. But what is he trying to do? He's trying to keep you out of the Word. He's trying to keep you from hearing a man of God that's going to speak strength into your spirit. He tries to keep you from church service on Wednesday night, but I'm telling you, this is a new day for you.

And God is coming in to your life like never before, you're about to move up to another level and dominate the Spirit of the world and you will be manifesting the sons of God! Starting right now. Whatever kind of word you're getting is going to be a reflection of the ability that you're going to have to dominate in this earth. Are you following what I'm saying? Okay, real quick, real quick, here are three. First, the natural man. The natural man.

Turn to Ephesians 2, the natural man. "And you he made alive when you were dead and slain by your trespasses and sins, in which at one time you walked habitually and you were following the course and fashions of this world. You were under the sway of the tendency of this present age, following the prince of the power of the air. You were obedient to and under the control of demon spirit that still constantly work in the sons of disobedience, the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving who go against the purposes of God. Among these we, as well as you, once lived and conducted our lives in the passions of our flesh, our behavior governed by our corrupt and sensual nature, obeying the impulses of the flesh and the thoughts of the mind, our cravings dictated by our senses, and our dark imaginings. We were then by nature children of God's wrath and heirs of his indignation like the rest of the mankind".

That's where we came from. We came from a natural man. A natural man is still under the dictates of demon spirits. And that's why you and I, as believers, are not supposed to marry anyone that is an unbeliever. Hear what I'm saying. He said, "Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers". Now why is this? Because the unbeliever, as he said, the unbeliever is under the control of his father. His father or her father is the devil. And so, if you marry a person who is under the control of the devil and you bring them into a relationship or in your house, they might act good as long you're courting, because the devil will let them act good so that he gain access into your life. But once you bring them in and then all of a sudden they get what they want, then they turn over one morning and say, "Ah"! And all of a sudden, from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde, I'm telling you right now, don't be yoked together with unbelievers.

You say, "Well, pastor, suppose I'm already married to somebody". The Bible has instructions for you of how to get that person converted over into the kingdom of God. I'm just saying right now that by nature we were children of wrath, but God, who is rich in mercy, wherewith his great love that he loved us, he transferred us from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God's dear son. So, you are no longer natural, you are spiritual. Say amen to that. "Well, pastor, what do I do if I've got this friend, that he's real close to me, you know, we're really getting close and you know, he wants me to bring him to church every day".

Hey, hey, hey, wait a minute. If you feel that thing is getting away from you, let somebody else bring him to church. Tell him, "God, I'm going to turn him over to you", because the devil don't send you nothing that you don't like. He knows what you like, "Boy, he sure is fine, ain't he"? "Boy, look at her hair, look at them legs, woo". He knows what you like and you've got to pop out of that because you are no longer going to be led by your flesh, you're going to be led by the Word of God!

Now, the next kind of man, the next kind of man, 1 Corinthians 2. Now notice, you're getting strong now. You might have had something going on with somebody and hey that wouldn't right. And now you're feeling strength. And you're feeling strength because I'm giving you the Word. And part of the anointing is to strengthen your spirit to separate you from danger, to separate you from what is not only, to separate you, I commend you to God, unto a word of his grace which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all them that are separated, sanctified, Holy Ghost filled. I'm tell you, God's got some good stuff for you and you are about to get it. 'Cause what has... oh, have mercy.

Look at verse 14 of chapter two, "But the natural man", watch this, "receives not the things of the Spirit of God for they are", what to him? "Foolishness to him. Neither can he", what? "Know them. Because they are", what? "Spiritually discerned". Notice, a natural person thinks part of the Word of God is foolishness, especially the part about tithing. "They said what? You're going to give all your money to that church? 10% of your money? Are you crazy"? Yeah, see, you know why? 'Cause they are not in touch with God, they can't even receive the instructions of God and they are still in the world under demonic control.

So don't let nobody in your house tell you what you're going to do with your tithe except God. If God didn't say it, don't believe it because the enemy is out to try to swipe your blessing and part of that blessing comes from you getting connected up with the covenant by the tithe. Say amen to that. I'm preaching better than you're saying amen right now. All right. It got quiet when I started talking about tithe, okay. That's all right. I'm encouraged. The next way, the next place. Look at verse one, now I'm saying is that everybody doesn't want to receive this.

See, if somebody doesn't want to receive this, let him go. I'm not talking to them, I'm talking to those who are chosen. I'm talking to those who are chosen. You know, everybody talking about heaven ain't going. Folks, you know, folks can act saved. I remember when I acted saved. Okay? Come on, look at 1 Corinthians 3:1, "I, brethren, could not speak unto you as spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as to babes in Christ". Notice, a carnal person is a baby. So a natural person, when they're talking about a natural man, he's motivated by demons. He's never been recreated, he's never had the new birth, and he's not under the control of God.

Now God can come in and do some things through you to back them demons off their life, but I'm telling you right now that's where the natural man is. Now the carnal man is different. 'Cause the carnal man's been born again, but he's still governed by his physical senses and that's why it's hard for God to trust him with anything. Because if he's governed by his physical senses, that means he's not walking by faith. Because you can't walk by your senses and walk by faith. You hear what I'm saying.

And I remember this guy told me a story. He said this man, he was a homeless guy. The guy got him, brought him to church, got him born again, and then he gave him a job in his business. He had a business of selling equipment or something like that. And after about six months, the guy did pretty good. He said, "Well, I'm going to go on vacation. It looks like the guy's good, I'm going to kind of leave him in charge of everything". He left the guy in charge, stayed away for two weeks. Came back, came to his business and nothing was there. The guy had stolen everything. Now what happened? He meant well, but he wasn't mature. He was still being led by his senses, so the enemy could use him. He was born again. Oh, you've seen born again folks smoking cigarettes, so forth and so on.

Now, I'm just saying, they're born again, but they're still led by their senses now. But the problem is, God can't trust them with anything. Don't you know, I had to come to a level of maturity before God would trust me with a mall this size? All right. Am I preaching all right here? So what am I saying? A carnal man has never developed or grown and some remain there all their lives. And I tell you why they remain there, because they have no desire to grow. Here's what they want, they want entertainment. As long as I'm running around snotting all over the place and shouting and so forth, they're all right. But the moment I settle down and we get quiet and I start teaching, it's too quiet for them, they got to go. Well, that ain't exciting. It's not exciting because you're learning something.

See, my job is to empower you. I can't keep doing all your praying. I can't keep doing all your believing. You're going to have to believe something yourself. Jesus turned to that bunch and said, "Where is your faith"? And he wouldn't have asked them that if they weren't supposed to have been walking in it. I'm telling you, some of you all have got faith enough right now to move some stuff. I'm talking about to get houses debt free and so forth. The problem is is that you haven't released it. You're still looking at me, you still want another sermon. You don't need another sermon, you need some teaching and then you need to act on what you just heard. Say amen to that!

Folks, I have to do stuff that looks strange to the mind. I have to go around the house, I walk around the house or point at a house, put my wallet on the table, point at it, put my checkbook up there, in the name of Jesus I command $20,000.00 to come into that account right now. I'm talking about the checking account that I want. I'm talking about do stuff, man. I'm a king, I can say things in this world. And when I decree it, Jesus said it shall be done for me. And you got to walk in that, you got to stop being so pretty and so so ditty until you can't get crazy for God. Now, you know what I'm talking about. Man, you got to say some stuff. You got to point at that disease, you got to come in that house and say, "Every demon in here, get out! 'Cause I'm going to have some peace in here tonight". Are you following what I'm saying?

And we got to come out... "Well, I'm just shy". No, you're not! That's fear! And it has got you bound. And what you need to do is get rid of it. Whatever the devil says you can't do, do it! Whatever he says don't say, say it! Say amen to this. Half of you all are supposed to be prophesying and speaking things into people's lives and so forth. Get rid of this low self-esteem, low ceiling mentality and rise on up and seat together with him in heavenly places and declare things. I said, declare things! Make me want to run.

All right. Verse two, "I have fed you with milk and not with meat. For hitherto you were not able to bear it, neither yet are you able. For ye are yet", what? "Carnal. For where there is among you envying", envy, envy! Somebody drive up in Rolls Royce or a Bentley, you should say, "Hey, that brother's saved, praise God"! You ain't supposed to be, "Look at him, now he thinks he's something". No, you're supposed to be giving him some, "Hey, man! Yeah, bro, yeah! Go, doc"! No, no, even preachers jealous of other preachers. Jealous of me because of this mall. Get what God told you to do and do it! And you won't have to look at me. You get in your own lane and run your own race. Strife, strife, divisions, all that. What is that? It said you walk as men. What does the Amplified say on that? You walk as mere men. Mere men, you are not a mere person. You're not just human, you are superhuman.

Oh, yeah. What is a carnal person? A person that's been born again, he's a new creature, but has never developed or grown and this person is still under the control of their physical senses. Their senses are still telling them where they stand with God. So they stay guilty all the time. They stay condemned all the time. They let them old tapes play all the time and they follow them instead of following what God said. He said, "You're a winner". He said he always causes you to triumph.

Last place, next is the spiritual man. What is a spiritual man? He is one who has gained ascendancy over his own body and over his physical senses. God governs this person through his word. He is the one who knows what belongs to him and takes it. He also knows who he or she is in Christ. He also knows the Holy Ghost. He also understands how God has given him his ability. He's no longer governed by his flesh, but he is only governed by the Word. If the Word didn't say it...

So I'm here to tell you right now, God wants a quality to come into you that will determine a strong person being manifested through you. Whatever kind of word you're getting is a reflection of the ability that you're going to have. He says, "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might". You're no longer going to be controlled by the system, you're no longer going to be controlled by the circumstances. For now, the Pedagogue has done his work in you and now you're being presented faultless. You're being presented as a mature offspring. Now you're putting on that robe of righteousness and now the Father trusts you and he is about to turn everything over to you.
