Redemption deals with our rescue and restoration from the Fall – delivering us
from sin, satan and death.
We are redeemed from sin’s power, from the empty way of living handed down to us and the curse of the law. This way we have the right standing with God to be sons and daughters, to be kings and priests into a covenant of blessing.
The shedding of blood provided a covering for sin through an acceptable sacrifice. The shedding of blood made a covenant with God possible when He established a covenant with Abram with blood. It made possible complete protection from the destroyer. The blood consecrates or sanctifies unto the Lord. The shedding of blood made complete atonement and removing of sin possible.
When I am in rebellion, God still loves me.
When I am covered with filth and drowned in sin, He still loves me.
When I am broken, wasted and ruined, He still loves me.
When I am at my worst, He still loves me.
The Love of The Father is beyond measure, and it is revealed to us in His Son Jesus Christ.
The unsearchable riches of Christ, also understood as inexhaustible riches, infinite riches, unending wealth and blessings that cannot be measured, These riches are too great to understand fully. The immeasurable wealth - meaning that what God has now given to us in Christ is immeasurable, so infinite, so great!
God has permitted the devil to continue his works in the world for a time, with his temptations and attacks on believers. In the New Testament we have in many places the same Greek word used in two different contexts : one the context of temptation as in inducement to sin, and second as in the context of testing through trials and tribulations.
Tests are meant to promote us to the next level in our spiritual growth and walk with Him. The devil's temptations are an inducement to sin and an attempt to take us away from our faith in the Lord. Trials include troubles, challenges, tribulations, difficulties, adverse circumstances, persecutions, oppositions, hindrances. The devil's attacks are an attempt to steal, kill or destroy what is ours. We how to identify these, face them and move ahead.
In this episode we look into the lives of Moses, Elisha, Jabez and David who weren't comfortable with where they were but kept pressing for more of God. Don't miss your moment for more. Also be careful to not look for more the wrong way, wrong places.
This year you will receive an outpouring of blessings that you cannot contain (Malachi 3:10). While the Scriptures apply to us all of the time, in God's dealings with us as individuals and as a community, there are specific seasons He brings us into. The Psalmist said, my times are in His hands (Psalm 31:15). The times and seasons of life are in His hands. And as He brings us into specific seasons, we need to be aware of what He intends to do and we must respond correctly.
We were designed by God to manifest His glory. When God is personally present in our lives, we are able to live fully. When we abide in the Holy Spirit, we shine, we glow, we reflect God’s glory to the world. On the other hand, Sin and Rebellion Causes His Glory To Lift.
We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. And because there cannot be anything unclean entering into the kingdom of God, we're separated. But then, the Grace of God is our everlasting hope that unlocks the gates of heaven. Through His son Jesus, we're accepted. On this episode we study the definitions of the word "Grace" and understand how Grace can empower us to be over comers, so we reign in life and and fulfill divine destiny.
