U Have A Double-Portion Inheritance

 Isaiah 61:6–7, NIV
    6And u will be called priests of the Lord... You will feed on the wealth of nations, & in their riches u will boast. 7Instead of their shame My people will receive a double portion… they will inherit a double portion in their land...

You are called “priests of the Lord” because Jesus has cleansed u with His blood and made u kings and priests 2 God. (Revelation 1:5–6) And as priests of the Lord, God says 2 u, “You will feed on the wealth of nations, & in their riches u will boast.” And u will “inherit a double portion in their land”.

This promise came true for a church member who received his double portion while working for one of the top American companies in Singapore. Within a short time, he received two pay increments. And within just two years, he received an unexpected promotion 2 a senior position in the company. It was unexpected bcoz the norm 2 qualify for such a promotion in the company was four years.

He was also named the recipient of a privileged stock award worth a five-figure sum, the net value of which was likely 2 double, judging by the then prevailing bullish stock market. He acknowledged that it was certainly God’s favor bcoz past awardees were a very small number of top management personnel who had made significant contributions 2 the company. And only an even smaller per cent of their worldwide employees had ever received this prestigious award. He was only the second recipient, besides his boss, in the Singapore office 2 receive it.

This church member literally inherited a double portion — two pay increments, a promotion within two years and a stock award which was likely 2 double in value. Indeed, he was feeding on the wealth of the nations & boasting in their riches!

Beloved, believe God when He says that His people will receive a double portion. This double portion includes blessings of favor, fruitfulness, success, riches & health. In fact, the people around u will look at u & your descendants, & acknowledge that u are a people that the Lord has blessed!
