#64 HEIR

"God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 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."  Hebrews 1:1-2

"Listen to another parable, There was a landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and rented it out to vine-growers, and went on a journey.  And when the harvest time approached, he sent his slaves to the vine-growers to receive his produce.  And the vine-growers took his slaves and beat one, and killed another, and stoned a third.  Again he sent another group of slaves larger than the first; and they did the same thing to them.  But afterward he sent his son to them, saying, "They will respect my son.  But when the vine-growers saw the son, they said among themselves, "This is the HEIR; come, let us kill him, and seize his inheritance."  And they took him, and threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him."  Matthew 21:33-39  

DEFINITION OF HEIR

:  one who inherits or is entitled to inherit property :  one who inherits or is entitled to succeed to a hereditary rank, title, or office  

Jesus, You are the HEIR!  You are the One who was appointed HEIR of all things.  You told the parable of the vine-growers who recognized the son as the HEIR - they took him, threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.  You were speaking in the form of a parable about Yourself.  Verse 45 says "And when the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parable, they understood that He was speaking about them."  They recognized that You were the HEIR - but they did not accept You.  Jesus, You are the HEIR - the One who owns it all and who is the SON of GOD!  

Worship and praise Jesus as the HEIR!

(Do you recognize Jesus as the HEIR - the One who owns it all?)
