    Conditionals from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about conditionals in the word of God, blessings, promises, even curses that are triggered by a certain action. It is something that we should always be aware of. God’s laws work much like gravity: you drop a cup an...

    Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of Yahweh, and spread it before Yahweh. Hezekiah prayed before Yahweh, and said, Yahweh, the God of Israel, who sit above the cherubim, you are the God, even you alone, of all the kingdoms of...

One Drop of Blood

  • Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,” that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13–14 WEB

    In Roman times, slaves were sold on an auction block under a spear. When a spear was held out over their head, it signified that this was a slave for sale. In Romans 7:14 Paul wrote that he was a slave, sold under sin. Sin was the spear being held over him. Sin was the cause of him being a slave.

    Slaves have no say about what they will do with their lives. It is up to the slave master to decide. One may be a cook, and another a prostitute. One may appear more respectable than another, but really they are just serving their masters wishes. Anyone unredeemed is in this state of existence. They are used by satan in whatever way he wishes to use them.

    Jesus came one day and bought us back. Redeemed literally means: “To Buy Back.” With His own blood, Jesus bought us slaves back from the devil and now we are free people. The devil can no longer make you be a prostitute or a drug dealer. His power over you is now broken. When you accept Jesus, you are no longer a slave to sin.

    In fact, it goes much farther than that. Not only were we slaves that He bought back, we were set free from condemnation (John 3:18), free from judgement (John 5:24), free from the power of death (John 8:51), and our alienation from God ended because God adopted us into His own family (John 1:12). If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36). Truly no one could have said it better.

    That said, what you feed in your life will grow, and what you starve will die. Each time that you resist temptation, you will grow stronger against it and it will become easier to resist. The opposite is true as well. Each time that you yield to temptation, you become weaker, and it becomes easier to do it the next time.

    With the precious blood of His only Son Jesus, God bought us back from slavery. No longer are we in bondage unless we choose to be by our own actions. He can open the cell door, but sometimes we remain in the cell because it is what we are used to. Through the Blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for saving me and setting me apart. I long for more of You in my life. Thank You for redeeming me from the curse of the law. Set me free from the things that hold me back and guide my every step. Take away the desires that are not of You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Because of a plumbing emergency this week, we were not able to put together Monday's video devotional. Apologies for the issue - Lord willing, the video teaching will be back again next Monday! For those interested, here is a pic of what we were facing:

Thank you Pastor Todd I pray that as you deal with your plumbing issues that  God will release more of the living water to you- as you remain as the conduit that He  will use and this ministry for a greater outpouring of His  plan and purpose through His Spirit and open supernatural water spot for the Word  of God(his son) to reach a lost and dying generation

In Jesus name I pray Amen
