    RHM Devotional: The Chain of Command from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the chain of command in the Kingdom of God. When we began RHM, I was blown away by some of the prayer requests that we received. Many people confused God with Santa Claus. I remember one in p...

    David therefore departed there, and escaped to the cave of Adullam: and when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down there to him. Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented, gathered themselves to him; and he became captain...
  • Peter answered him and said, 'Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the waters.' He said, 'Come!' Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, 'Lord, save ...

The Redeemer

  • Yahweh, your Redeemer, and he who formed you from the womb says: 'I am Yahweh, who makes all things; who alone stretches out the heavens; who spreads out the earth by myself; Isaiah 44:24 WEB

    In the Bible when someone was in trouble, danger, or in need, a male relative could 'redeem' them. This relative was called a 'kinsmen redeemer' and would step in and pay off their debt, buy back their property, and set them free.

    A great example of this is in the book of Ruth. When Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi were widows, living penniless and gleaning in the fields, a wealthy relative named Boaz stepped up and took them in. Ruth suddenly went from having nothing, to having it all. She is King David's great grandmother and in the lineage of Jesus (Ruth 4:17).

    The Lord is often mentioned as a Redeemer in the Bible. The word Redeem means: to save, compensate for the defects of, vindicate. In this light, the Lord wants to:

    - (Save) Rescue you and keep you safe from danger.

    - Compensate for your defects and make you a better person.

    - (Vindicate) Clear you of all blame.

    Jesus became our Redeemer. He has stepped in and laid His own life down for us. The debt that we could not pay, He did, and He has chosen the church as His own bride just as Boaz chose Ruth. Leave your past behind and let the Lord guide you from this day on. Your past, is in the past, and your future is now a bright one.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You so much for redeeming me. Lord I want all that You have for me in this life, lead me. Please teach me the things that I should know and let me hear You clearly, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! Father, I thank you for sending your son Jesus to this earth. I remember the day I recieved the Baptisum in the Holy Spirit, I heard these words. "Jesus is the truth!" I have heard the tape in the church that day of me speaking in a strange language I had never learned and I just kept repeating; "Jesus is truth", I thought in English. We are about to see new things Jesus provided for us, it is time!

Thank You Lord for redeeming me, for shedding Your precious blood for me, for blotting out my past and for giving a shining tomorrow, a blissful future to spend with You forever and ever!!!
