When I say I love the word, I get all kinds of responses, some spoken out loud and some silent.
I didn’t take anyone’s permission to start following Him and I will not be requiring anyone’s permission to continue following Him.
He has been good to me more than I deserve. If I want to deserve it, what a stupid decision that would be.
What I think is good for me, God wants to give me so much more.
So today I am sharing the word and the ministers and the link to the devotional is below the devotional in case you want to read it daily.
REDEMPTION: AN ACCOMPLISHED FACT
…secured our permanent deliverance. (Hebrews 9:12 | Goodspeed)
“Everything Jesus did was for you, and it was set to the credit of your account.” – Mark Hankins
Let’s look at several hath scriptures that the Apostle Paul wrote in his letters.
- Christ hath redeemed you from the curse of the law. (Galatians 3:13)
- God hath qualified you for your inheritance. (Colossians 1:12)
- He hath delivered you from the power of darkness and ‘hath’ translated you into the kingdom of His dear Son. (Colossians 1:13)
- He hath blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)
These hath scriptures show that Jesus hath — past tense — paid the price, and the prisoner must be released.
Man, without Jesus, is literally held captive by sin, Satan, sickness, fear, poverty, guilt, and many other things. The definition of redemption is “deliverance through the payment of a price.” Jesus paid the price for your freedom. Jesus said that you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. (John 8:32,36)
Confession: I have been delivered through the blood of Jesus. I am no longer held captive by sin, Satan, sickness, fear, poverty, or guilt. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

Hopefully, we should ponder on the meaning of this quote in the next blog and test if God really means what He says or is kidding:
Hebrews 9:12 New International Version (NIV)
12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining[a] eternal redemption.
I don’t think God ever kids about anything. He always means what He says and says what He means.
