Luke-The inheritance

Luke 12:13  And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.
Luke 12:14  And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

Who decides who receives the inheritance? Is it not the one who made the will or testament? Jesus did not want to interfere with another mans covenant. Perhaps it was the will that one should receive all or as the law, two thirds going to the older son? Some say it is not fair that God would send some to hell. God has made a covenant through the blood of Jesus. All must come through the blood of the Lamb to receive forgiveness. If a person refuses the covenant he cannot legally receive of the will. The will or testament is through the blood of Jesus and no other way. Like this man who desired that he be given the inheritance, it is not lawful, unless the man gives him grace. As the old covenant excluded the Gentiles, the New Covenant receives all who come through the blood. This is God's grace for you, yet it must be received through His covenant. No man can overrule his will and testament. The covenant stands. Will you come lawfully through the door that is Jesus to gain all things of God. Why look for another way? There is no other way.  

Acts 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

The true problem with the man was covetousness.

Luke 12:15  And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
