    Even the youths faint and get weary, and the young men utterly fall; but those who wait for Yahweh will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:30 WEBI sat in the corner of my prayer room and wondered ...

    Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together! I sought the LORD, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. Ps...

    Farther Along from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about dealing with things that we don’t understand. There will be times in life when the path becomes dark, and we have to walk by faith. I want to begin in Psalm 119: (Psalm 119:105 NKJV) Your word is a lamp to...

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 they could 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. Though Ruth was a moabite, 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 stepped in and laid His own life down for us. The debt that we could not pay, He paid. He has chosen the church as His own bride just as Boaz chose Ruth. So 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.

    Note: Our weekly RHM Live church service will be happening this morning at 10am EST. Join us for a time of worship, interactive prayer, and fellowship, and to hear what has been happening recently in our lives. To participate in the chatroom you need to have a site account, but if not, you can still watch the video of the study. Service starts at 10am EST, but all are encouraged to show up 15 minutes early for fellowship, and to make sure the stream is working for you before we start. Love you all!
