What does a Will have to do with it?

Hebrews 9:16-18 (NIV)
16  In the case of a will, it is necessary to prove the death of the one who made it,
17  because a will is in force only when somebody has died; it never takes effect while the one who made it is living.
18  This is why even the first covenant was not put into effect without blood.

Luke 12:32 (NIV)
32  “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.

This is the will of the father for all of his children that he has adopted.  Some of you may say, “How do I know that his will will be done?  He put it in writing and sealed it with his blood.

For the will to be put into effect the one who made the will has to die.  The bloodshed on the cross is the evidence that a death has occurred so now the plans of the Father are now accomplished.

This is part of what the cross does for us.  It certifies that a death has taken place so the will could now be put into effect.

Having a hard time believing this?  Don’t worry it does not matter whether you can believe this or not because God has already guaranteed it.  Hold on all that comes with the kingdom of God is coming your way soon.

Watching and waiting with my eyes wide open,
