SCRIPTURE: For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more
they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness

realms of the Spirit, there’re different kinds of laws; we have the law
of contact, the law of faith, and then we have the law of receiving,
which is the focal point of today’s discussion. Our opening verse says,
“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which
receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness….”
word “receive” here is the Greek “lambano.” It’s not the same as being
stationary somewhere and expecting what you want to just land in your
hand; no. That word is a carefully picked word. It’s a bit blind to the
English connotation of the word “receive.” “Lambano” is an action word;
it means “to take,” “to catch” and make personal to you. It means to get
a hold of something and make it yours. We minister to people sometimes
and we say, “Take it”; that’s what it is. It’s the keyword of the Spirit
The above verse says, “They which receive
abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life
by one, Jesus Christ.” It’s saying those who get a hold of, catch, or
“lambano” abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness are the
ones that’ll reign in life. This means you’re looking out for it to get a
hold of it; you’re going for it, for the purpose of using it. So, you
see, it’s not just about God giving you something; He’s already given
you everything (1 Corinthians 3:21). You’re the one to receive!
things have been made available for you to enjoy. Take a hold of
eternal life! Take a hold of your abundant life in Christ! Don’t wait
anymore. Take possession of your inheritance in Christ, through
persistent and audacious faith-proclamations.
have a supernatural heritage in Christ, possessions of great and
inestimable value! Therefore, I declare that I walk in superabundance
today, for God has prepared great and unquantifiable blessings for me to
take care of all my needs spiritually, financially, materially, and
emotionally! All that belongs to me are being unveiled by the revelation
of God’s Word, and as I see, I possess! Hallelujah!
