Pictures of Christ in Isaac (4)

4. The heir of all things

Abraham gave all he had to Isaac.
(Genesis 25:5 ESV)

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things
(Hebrews 1:1-2 ESV)


Abraham left to Isaac all that he had. Now, Abraham was a rich man, and Isaac must have become very rich as his heir.

But what a different scale entirely to think of the position that God has given His Son – appointed heir of all things (and in fact all the previous pictures of Christ in Isaac build to this as parts of God’s unfolding of history so that His Son might take the highest place)! God, the Maker of All Things, has given to His Son all that He has.

And enjoy this thought as we head into the weekend – We, as believers, are fellow-heirs with the heir of all things! Consider it!

  1. How powerful to know we are equal heirs with Jesus of the inheritance of the Father!! Thank you!

    • Thanks for reading, Tom. God is good, what a day of rejoicing to come in the future!
