THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD
God created man in His own image and after His own likeness. God gave man the dominion mandate (Genesis 1:28). Thereafter, the devil came and corrupted the image of God in man, through sin.
Consequently, man became spiritually separated from his creator. Yet, God made provision for the redemption of man, in spite of his fall (Gen 3:15). What a merciful God we serve!
Several messengers of the light (the prophets of old) came ahead of Christ, pointing to Him through their messages and many of them prophesied about His birth and ministry.
John the Baptist was conceived 6 months before Jesus (Luke 1:35-37)
The Lord deliberately closed Elizabeth’s womb for this purpose: that her son (John the Baptist) would be the forerunner of the Messiah according the God’s divine orchestration…(Luke 1:13-17)
Isaiah rightly prophesied, saying:
‘….The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light, those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined’ (Isaiah 9:1-2).
This prophecy was fulfilled in Matthew 4:13-16
He shall deliver (save) His people from their sins – Matt 1:21-23; Isaiah 7:14
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law…..Gal 3:13-14; Romans 8:1-3
As we celebrate the season of Christ’s birth, the yoke of sin upon your neck is destroyed in the name of Jesus Christ!
I’m the redeemed of the Lord!
I’m redeemed from the oppression of sin, iniquity and ungodliness.
Sin shall no more have dominion over me.
I’m redeemed from sickness, disease, bareness, poverty, untimely death, etc in the name of Jesus Christ!
Jesus is the reason for the season! Receive the grace to walk in the newness of life….
