    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEBJob is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first te...

    and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

    He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called 'The Place of a Skull', which is called in Hebrew, 'Golgotha', where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle. Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, 'JESUS OF NAZARETH...

The Redeemer

  • Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb: I am the LORD, who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by Myself. Isaiah 44:24 ESV

    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, Boaz stepped up and took them in. Ruth went from having nothing, to having it all. She is King Davids 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 and 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.

Randall Benson
Randall Benson Many years ago a man named Dan came to visit my wife and I at that time he told me about Jesus the redeemer it was the first time that I was able to understand. I couldn't sleep that night and the following days I was not able to keep my mind on my work all I could think of was what I had heard of Jesus it just seemed too good to be true. I went to meet a man named Tom who held a Bible study and as a result I gave my life over to Jesus my Lord. My life has never been the same. 2nd Corinthians 5:17

Nell Neathery I commented a few minutes ago on Sylvia's post about "let love rewrite your history."  I have rewritten that history many, many times.  Now, I am in the last chapter of my journey in life until I reach my final destination with the Lord's guidance to have a bright future!  Redeemed, Rescued, Renewed, and Revived!  I have missed a few devotionals this week, but I did manage to read one of them.  Thanks!

Twila Stierwalt
Twila Stierwalt One of my favorite Bible story's, This was such a good message, of love, trust,faith, and forgiveness. It is all Gods work, He just uses us for His glory. That is why He created us to praise Him and give God the glory. A very good reminder that He saved me, He is molding me, and forgave me totally.

Cheryl Hepler Hi Kathy,  long back I went thru a divorce of 21 years.  You mentioned hurt words.  My X-husband said he never loved me any way.  I knew it was right to end.  Yet it truly hurts to hear it said.  I am believing God was not in the relationship.  It's then when I grew in my relationship with God.  I am now in June married 24years to a great man, friend, lover of my heart where enjoy so many things even the way we both grew up.  I can't have what I want just what God wants.  The moment before we dated I knew God was preparing me for a man to come in year 1990.  He came.  We both love The Lord.  This was a major piece I needed to have in my marriage. I learned from a woman speaker that as I stay in the moment & do what is in front of me days came full of many ways to fill time as I waited.  I would say to The Lord....Lord I want someone like you who says what He means & means what He says.  That I could pray for what I was looking for in a husband as well learned he was praying for me as I was praying for him:)
