We saw last time that after the fall of man, he needed Redemption. i.e.(Freedom from the power of evil or slavery). And that this Redemption that will Restore Righteousness to
him must come from God for no man can stand before God for himself because the whole human race is under indictment for Adam’s act of Treason. (Rom 3:23).
WHO WILL THEN BE THE REDEEMER?
The redeemer must be a man however, He must not be a subject of Satan .i.e. Satan must have no legal claims or authority over Him. He must Not possess within His Spirit spiritual death. Gal 4:3-5.
He must stand before God in Righteousness, possessing the same Dominion and Authority as Adam before the fall. Mt 28:18.
He must work as a man perfectly pleasing God. Heb 4:15.
He must meet Satan in Temptation as the first Man did, but He must Not Yield to Satan’s will. Lk 4:1-13.
He must go to hell, remain there under judgment until He legally acquits man thereby conquering death and bringing life and immortality to man, and freeing man from the penalty of going to hell. Rom 5:6-9; Mt 27:52-53; Rom 4:25; Eph 4:2-10.
GOD’S PROVISION FOR REDEMPTION.
Mt 1:18-25; Jn 3: 14-17.
For man to REGAIN the lost Righteousness, God must make a Perfect Provision that will come in the form of man Gen 3:15. Though He will be free from Satanic dominion in His earth walk.
The Redeemer is a Mediator who’s standing in between God and man to bridge the gap and unite God with man 1Tim 2:5. He is God’s Incarnate one. Lk 1:30-35.
JESUS: THE REDEEMER.
we saw from the scriptures that man who was created in God’s image and likeness, sinned and lost God’s Nature which made him to be in great need of redemption and God made a plan for man’s redemption. Heb 2:9-18; Rom 3:24-25.
Jesus entered the Holy place to obtain eternal redemption for us: He is the propitiation for man’s sins. I Jn 2:2. His blood became the seal of man’s redemption. Heb 9:11-12.
Who is this Jesus?
1). He is the Son of God. Jn 3:16-18.
2). He is our High Priest. Entering into the Holies with His own blood making sacrifice for us. Heb 9:11-15.
3). He is our sin bearer who bore our sin so that sin cannot have dominion over us again. Isa 53:5-6; Rom 6:14
4). He is our Mediator who stands before God for us i.e. He introduces the unsaved man to God. I Tim 2:5.
5). He is our Intercessor who is constantly interceding for us against the plans of the devil. Lk 22:31-32; Rom 8:34; Jn 17:9.
6). He is our Advocate who pleads on our behalf to the Father the moment we sin and confess our sins to Him. I Jn 2:1-2.
7). He has been made a curse for us so that we cannot remain under any curse or consequence of sin. Gal 3:13.
8). He is our Burden Bearer who bears our grief, pains, sorrows, disappointments etc. Isa 53 :4.
9). He is our Healer who heals our sicknesses and diseases. Isa 53:4-5; I Pt 2:24.
10).He is our Surety who is always standing for us representing us before the Father. He is the surety of better testament. Heb 7:21-24. with Him we have a sure standing with Father.
Rom 5:1-2,6-9 Therefore being justified by Faith, we have peace with god through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom also we have access by Faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
For when we where yet without sin, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteousness man will one die; peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
