Matt. 4:23 says, “Now Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.” 1 John 3:8b states “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”
From this scripture and others we can see that the will of the Father is to teach and preach the gospel of the kingdom, heal all kinds of sickness and disease and destroy the works of the devil. This mandate, or work or business o f the Father is why the sons of God need to inherit the promises of God. The inheritance is what gives us the power and ability to do the Father’s business. See Isaiah 61:1-3
THE REVEALING OF THE SONS OF GOD
Gal. 4:1-7, Ro. 8:14-19
John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.”
The sons of God inherit the promises and are doing the “will of him that sent me”. Children don’t do the Father’s business. They have stewards or guardians. Though children in the legal manner are “masters”, they are not able to exercise their “office” because they have need of maturity. They need to really understand who they are, who their Father is, who their elder brother is and as a family together what their mission is “whilest it’s yet day”.
When we speak of going on to maturity, we mean going on to, through and with the “elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.” Heb. 6:1-2 Going on to perfection then means going on to maturity. One of the main elements of maturity is doing the Father’s business.
