    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

    Give thanks to Yahweh with the lyre. Sing praises to him with the harp of ten strings. Psalm 33:2 WEBWhen I ran my fingers across the strings, I knew instantly that this was the most beautiful sounding instrument that I had ever picked up, and that I had to have one.

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, Boaz stepped up and took them in. Ruth 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 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.

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

Amen! I was just explaining to my 11th year old what it means to be redeemed. But your explanation of how the Lord redeems us it's so much sweeter. What a great Father He is. Thank you, Pastor.

God is always there, but we need to ask Him for His love and care. He sacrificed for us by paying for our sins.

I read this again this day to hear again ,& again the understanding of what a Redeemer is.  I so need this to penetrate my heart & spirit to wrap myself around the depth of not just the description of Redeemer but to call in the awareness of my Redeemer my Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ
