“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs…
“O Sirs, if you remain what you are by nature, you may strive to do what you please, but when you have dressed out the child of nature in its finest garments, it is still only the child of nature finely dressed, but not the child of God You must be, by a supernatural birth, allied to the living God, for, if not, all the works that you may perform will not entitle you to the possession of the inheritance of the Most High.”
“But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not any inheritance: the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them.” —Joshua 13:33
Levi’s name means “joined to” or “attached.” What a blessed inheritance they received! They were joined to Jehovah. The LORD Himself was the tribe’s inheritance. Their possession was not land that could be invaded or plundered; neither was it vineyards that could be blighted; nor was it houses that could be robbed or destroyed.
