Jesus has been constituted heir of all things


This is the main column of the doctrine of salvation, …

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Hebrews 1:2

… and spiritual base for the participation of the faithful in the partition of spiritual gifts, …

But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.   1st. Corinthians 7:17

… of the ministries and the operations of the Holy Spirit.

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  …    11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; Ephesians 4:7-11

Jesus is the son of the promise by whom the inheritance of the Kingdom of Heaven is established. Notice the instruction given to Abraham:

And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. Genesis 15:4

The apostle Paul stated that the son of Abraham is not Isaac, but Jesus,

Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. Galatians 3:16

For the reason that Jesus is the heir of the promises, those who recognize him and submit to his Lordship are constituted joint-heirs,

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:17

The Promise of the Father to Abraham makes the joint-heirs participate in all activity and participation of the Holy Spirit,

Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.  …   39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. Acts 2.33-39

The same stipulation applies to Gentiles,

That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Ephesians 3:6
