[The Glory Unveiled]
No inheritance may pass from one tribe to another, for each Israelite tribe is to keep the land it inherits.” ( Numbers 36:9 )
Spiritual heritage is very important especially in our day and age. Finding and knowing one’s spiritual ancestry is crucial to the core mandate of our call. The instructions given by God, through Moses to Joshua to be carried out was that, the inheritance (land) should be shared according to tribes and among tribes. There was no other way by which anyone in Israel could have a land allotted to them. Once you belong to a particular ancestry, you can be sure of your share of an inheritance. The problem arises when you don’t know your tribe or you have none, as a result of not knowing your source or not belonging to that lineage. But whatever the case may be, without a connection to a tribe, there is no inheritance and hence there is no legacy to be left. Likewise, our spiritual tribes determine what ripple effects we will leave on the earth and how effective that impact could be. The scripture above says, no inheritance should pass from one tribe to another, but each should keep what they have. Spiritually too, no one can partake in the inheritance of another tribe no matter how hard they try. The best they could do is to pretend or fake the inheritance of that tribe. Unfortunately many of us think we can just stand alone, without spiritual tribes and covering. This is probably the reason for many of the errors and ineffectiveness we see in ministry all around. Are you a prophet, quit acting like a teacher. Are you an evangelist, quit acting like a prophet. Remain in your tribe and you will be relevant.
Prayer_Bead: God of the universe and all its resulting effects, thank you for bringing me up in a particular tribe. Guide me to recognize my tribe and to remain committed to that lineage. Make me a partake of the inheritance of my tribe.
