THE PREACHER’S UTMOST PRAYER. 1 Corinthians 9:16-27


IMG_163697742828679

1 Corinthians 9:16-27 (KJV)

16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

18 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.

19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.

22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

O’ Lord see me through, Jesus see me through, there is a race that I must run, there are victories to be won! Oh God give me power every hour to be true!!! Lord Jesus see me through!!

As ordained servants of God, there is just one goal. The crown on the head and the voice that says “ Well Done and Welcome Home.”

But how do we achieve this goal? Every true believer is a minister of God and a preacher of the gospel. May I remind you, some people were specifically called, some called themselves and some was just simple availability.

Matthew 19:12.

For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

But I tell you, God Equips the Called, He never calls the Equipped! Availability is a key ingredient in the call of God.

“If God Calls you, He will Provide for the Vision.”

Apostle Paul is our example in this study, and our study is divided into three subheadings.

The Pattern of Self-Denial, 1 Corinthians 9:16-19.
As Christians, preaching the gospel of Christ and everything Christ stands for is unavoidable. We are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

To some, we might look like fools and sound stupid, but whence we know our target and know that our goal is to win them to Christ, we ought to remain steadfast not boasting about it, nor feeling “ I have arrived.” It is a must as true Christians to preach the gospel.

1 Corinthians 1:18

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God.

 Jesus Christ said; if anyone wants to be His servant, he must first denial everything including his own self, pick up his cross and follow Jesus. Luke 14:25-33, Luke 9:23.

Self-denial is a must to become a true child of God. We have to deny ourselves a lot of things, from the way speak, to the way we act. We are now a new creature; our old lifestyles have been nailed to the cross.

There’s a reward for selfless service to God and mankind. We should never abuse the gift of God upon our lives. “ Those who preach the gospel must live the gospel”

 

Serving all men, 1 Corinthians 19-23.
As workers in the vineyard, we ought to remember,

“Your Goal is very much more Important than the Role you Play.”

If we have this at the back of our mind, certainly we will preach Christ effortlessly and selflessly. Our utmost desire for should be the desire of total flexibility. I mean we have to be flexible to change in accordance to God’s words and will. Apostle Paul became four different persons on four different occasions.

And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might, by all means, save some.

But notice, he was still under God’s commandments and rules. He did not break any of them to please men.

He talks about becoming a Jew so that he could win the Jews; those under the law so he could win them; those without the law; and to the weak he became weak. At the end of the day, he became all things to men, in pursuit of saving them. As fellow laborers in the vineyard, we need to study our situation before we can lead the situation.

We need to add value to our work as ministers before God is going to give us direction.

Striving for a Crown, 1 Corinthians 26-27.
This is it!

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

There is a race to run, a crown to be worn. If we truly understand this, our walk with God will have a huge impact on our service towards the propagation of the gospel of Christ. We have to run with Focus, Train & Compete with Passion, and Fight with Purpose and Master our Flesh.

 Mr. Flesh!

jmJosephAndChrist 001

Mr. flesh is one entity that refuses to let go without a fight. Romans 7:15-25, Apostle Paul was talking about the power of the flesh confronting him and trying to prevent him from serving God.

Romans 7:15

What I don’t understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise.

Galatians 5:16 give us the Antidote to kill the flesh, we have to walk only in the spirit and do the things that are spiritually minded.

“Watch & Pray!” notice the bible says, Watch first. We need to observe every step we are taking and everything we are doing. Focus on the high calling of God in Christ Jesus lay aside every weight of sin and never pamper our weaknesses. Deal with our internal rubbish, confront our foundation because it will spring up and destroy our calling. We need to set our affections on the things that are above, mortify our body, (fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness). We need to put off the old man, which is lying, anger, lust, greed, pride, and filthy communication. Only then can we safeguard ourselves. It is compulsory we put on the new man and practice charity (love), which is the golden rule in becoming perfect in our walk with Christ. This guarantees our finishing well. Col 3:1-17. 

Col 4:2 &17

Finally, continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving. Please take heed to the ministry, which you have receive from God, that you may fulfill it.

3090240_1425163596.2939_updates

Have great Passion for the Work, which exceeds our Position, Gains and personal Preferences. Remain fixed on our Mission and Flexible in our Methods in Achieving it.

Remember we have to keep under our body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means when we have preached to others, we ourselves should be a castaway.

Our goal and target are hearing those sayings from God when we have gone the last mile of the way, and we are resting at the close of the day. We only want to hear God say.

“ Well Done & Welcome Home My Good & Faithful Servant!”

Remembers the true Picture, less you lose sight of the Vision. Priority is key, Discernment is Priceless.

“Run The Race!”Laying Aside Every Weight & Sin. Hebrews 12:1-2.


lay-aside

Hebrews 12:1-21 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

heb-12

There’s a Race to Run as a Christian, the Race is not to the swift, we need the grace to accomplish our goals in life.

Grace is already available, Jesus told us that His grace is sufficient for us. This means everything we need in life to help us fulfill our dream is already at our disposal. But one thing is missing and we are to find it and apply it to our lives. This missing puzzle is FOCUS. Hebrews 12:1-2, Hebrews 4:15-16 bears a lot of witnesses against us. In the sense that, Jesus our role model came into the earth as flesh so He can understand our pains, worries, and struggles. This means we are not justified if we do not make it, it is not God’s fault.

To succeed in life we need to put our trust in Jesus, focusing on Him only. Our lives are compared to a race, if we plan well, we will definitely have a perfect finish.We have to Run with Passion, Purpose and Perspective and in all we need to be Persistence.

The Key to Persistence is Passion, and the Key to Passion is Purpose. The race before us is a race of Purpose, we must run with Purpose not aimlessly. And the Key to Purpose is having the Right Perspective.

This duty consist of two parts, the preparatory and the perfective phase.

The Preparatory: Lay aside every weight, and sin.

  • Every weight, that is not in line with the will of God, the inordinate affection and concern for the body, and for the present life and world. The wrong care for the present life, the wrong ideas and perspective towards life. This weighs upon us, preventing us to actually see what God have destine for us. This weigh pull us down, instead to uplift us, it drags us backward instead of to push us forward. This makes our walk with God heavier and very difficult. we have to lay aside all external and internal hindrances.
  • The Sin that so easily Beset Us; those little things that we think it doesn’t matter, the little sin of hatred, talkative, backbiting, quarrelling, those sin that we easily fall into. We have to drop it totally.

The Perfective: Run with patience the race that is set before us. There is a race before us, we must finish well. But we have to persevere, press on knowing that there there is a crown for well doing. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

  • We have a race to run, a race of service, and a race of sufferings, a part of total obedience to God.
  • This race is set before us, both by the word of God, and the examples of His faithful servants. They are the cloud of witnesses which are compassed round about us.

This race must be Run with Patience and Perseverance. There will be a great deal of patience to overcome the difficulties we will encounter in life, and also a great will to persevere in times of temptation.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Remember I said Focus is our main goal and priority in finishing well.

Why should we focus on Jesus?

  1. He is the Author of our faith, the beginning, perfecter and rewarder of it.  His life is a living example of a man of vision and purpose. He had His reasons for coming to earth. He came to take away the sins of this world, He trusted in God and totally yielded Himself to the will of the father.
  2. He is the Finisher of our faith, He fulfilled all promises of God concerning redemption and He restored hope to man and reconciled us back to our father.
  3. He is the finisher of Grace.
  4. He endured the contradiction sinners against Himself, we as focus people, we need to have the same mind set. Opposition will arise but a positive attitude makes all the difference.
  5. He endure the cross, He Despised the shame. but He is sitting with the Father in Heaven. After the Thorn Comes the Crown

Jesus had something in view despite all the hardship and sufferings, through His sufferings, we have boldness to enter into the Holiest, the middle wall of Partition is broken down, we are redeemed from the Curse of the law, the Handwriting of ordinances written against us is blotted out.

He did all this so we could have authority. This makes me understand that, no matter what you might be going through, better days are ahead, joy comes in the morning no matter how hard or dark the night may be. There is hope!!

03-fussfessel

Finally: We need to drop all the excess luggages we are carrying, the load of Guilt, past Mistakes, past Errors and Focus only on Jesus. Forget what you have done before in the past, I might have done worst. There’s always someone who have done worst than you. turn your mess into a beautiful message and your tests and trials into wonderful testimony and look only to Jesus. Press forward, for the Mark of the Price of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Faith and constant meditation in the things of God will fetch in fresh supplies of strength, comfort and courage, and it will help us run our race till the end when we will rest at the close of the day. There is a great Crown of Glory that awaits us AT THE FINISHING LINE. Faith and Patience are conquering Grace for the Great finish. For the great finish we consider these Rules.

  • We must get serious about finishing well, since a great cloud of witnesses have gone before us.
  • It is now our turn to run the race and watch the mistakes and  errors of our great leaders and learn from it so we don’t make the same mistake.
  • We must lay aside every encumbrance that would prevent us from finishing well.
  • Jesus ran His own race and endured hardship by fixing His eyes on the rewards, we must follow His own example. Philippians 2:5-11.

God Richly Bless You

IL VERO TE


IMG_3434.JPG
Tu sei più che il corpo che si vede. Tu sei più il caso che ospita i sensi (vista, udito, tatto, gusto e dei sensi).
Dentro di te, c’è qualcosa, in realtà, qualcuno molto più del tuo corpo.
L’uomo interiore è quella che la Bibbia definisce in 1 Pietro 3:4
“Ma sia che l’uomo nascosto del cuore, in ciò che non è corruttibile, anche l’ornamento di un mite e spirito quieto … “
Quando il corpo di un uomo muore, il suo spirito vive. E’ ancora tanto la persona umana che era prima di morire, egli non ha perso nulla, tranne che ha perso la capacità di funzionare nel mondo fisico. Il suo corpo potrebbe essere morto, ma la persona reale, l’uomo spirito, ha ancora la coscienza che aveva prima di morire.

Gesù Cristo ha raccontato una storia in Luca 16:19-31 circa due uomini che sono morti. Uno era un mendicante, di nome Lazzaro. Il punto non è che lui era un mendicante, ma se era povera, aveva un cuore retto. Quando morì fu portato nel seno d’Abramo. Il secondo uomo è morto anche, sebbene ricco del mondo, non aveva vissuto una vita retta così quando morì, non è stato trovato nel seno d’Abramo. Si noti che quando morì, il suo corpo fu sepolto in terra, ma Gesù ha detto che all’inferno, questo ricco uomo alzò gli occhi e vide Lazzaro nel seno d’Abramo e riconobbe Lazzaro. Questo significa che vedeva ancora. Poi chiamò Abramo e disse: “per favore aiutami”.

Questo dimostra poteva ancora parlare. Abramo ha parlato di nuovo con lui e udì la voce di Abramo, il che implica che poteva ancora sentire. L’uomo ricco ha anche detto che aveva sete e, non solo, era anche in agonia così pregava” vi preghiamo di Lazzaro vieni a darmi una goccia d’ acqua per raffreddare la mia sete”. C’è ancora un altro punto da notare qui, poteva ancora sentire.
Tutti i suoi sensi, dove ancora intatte. In realtà, egli riusciva nemmeno a ricordare le cose perché ha detto, “per favore, manda qualcuno tra i morti per andare a predicare ai miei fratelli”. Ebbe cinque fratelli sulla terra. Così ha pensato, ‘magari se qualcuno dai morti andrà da loro, loro lo credono. Ricordava i suoi fratelli!

Questo permette di sapere che lo spirito dell’uomo vive. C’è una vita dopo la morte: essa non solo finisce qui. Come siete preparati per questa vita senza fine dopo la morte? Quando un uomo è nato di nuovo, è il suo spirito che nasce ancora una volta! 2 Corinzi 5:17-18 dice, quindi se uno è in Cristo, egli è una nuova creatura, le cose vecchie sono passate, ecco, tutte le cose sono diventate nuove. Ora tutte le cose sono di Dio, che ci ha riconciliati con sé per mezzo di Gesù Cristo, e ci ha dato il ministero della riconciliazione.

THE REAL YOU


IMG_3432.JPG
You are more than the body that you see. You are more than the case that houses your senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste and senses).
Inside you, there’s something, actually, someone much more than your body.

The inner man is the one the Bible refers to in 1 Peter 3:4
“But let it be that the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit…”
When a man’s body dies, his spirit lives on. He is still as much the human person he was before he died; he hasn’t lost anything except that he has lost the ability to function in the physical world. His body may be dead but the real person, the spirit man, still has the consciousness he had before he died.

Jesus Christ told a story in Luke 16:19-31 about two men who died. One was a beggar named Lazarus.
The point is not that he was a beggar, but though he was poor, he had a righteous heart. When he died he was taken to Abraham’s bosom.
The second man also died, though rich in the world, he had not lived a righteous life so when he died he wasn’t found in Abraham’s bosom.

Note that when he died, his body was buried on earth, but Jesus said that in hell, this rich man lifted up his eyes and saw Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom and he recognized Lazarus. This means that he could still see. Then he called out to Abraham and said “please help me”. This shows he could still talk. Abraham spoke back to him and he heard Abraham’s voice, implying that he could still hear. The rich man also said he was thirsty and, not only that, he was also in agony so he begged “please let Lazarus come and give me a drop of water to cool my thirst”. There is yet another point to note here, he could still feel.

All of his senses where still intact. In fact, he could even remember things because he said, “please, send somebody among the dead to go preach to my brothers”. He had five brothers on earth. So he thought, ‘maybe if someone from among the dead goes to them, they’ll believe him. He remembered his brothers!
This lets you know that man’s spirit lives on. There is a life after death: it doesn’t just end here. How prepared are you for this endless life after death? When a man is born again, it is His spirit that is born again! 2 Corinthians 5:17- 18 says, therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, Old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us ministry of reconciliation.

TREASURES IN EARTHEN VESSELS PART 1: ” Seeing the future from the present situations “


IMG_1004-0.JPG
The tortures of Christians by other religions or by certain groups did not start today. If you read books like ” Foxes Book Of Martyrs” or ” Tortured For Christ” you will agree with me that it has started since the beginning of the creature. Even the bible recorded detailed sufferings of the apostles after the death of our Lord. The amazing thing about the Bible and Christianity is that, it is still standing through the test of time.
Every true believer of God will face persecution at on point in time or the other. Off course it differs, but how we overcome is a proof of how well we have been preparing and how strong is our faith in God.
Isis is committing their own atrocities all in the name of religion. Despite all, some Christians in Iraq and Syria still refuses to let go of Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!!!
It makes me understand Phil 1:21 when Bro Paul said ” For to me to live is Christ and to die is Gain!!” Wow

I have come to a point in my walk with God, that if He likes let Him bless me, if He likes let Him not bless me, but No Turning Back… ” The World behind me, The Cross Before Me!” I’ve come this far by Faith!! Trust me, HE HAS NEVER FAILED ME!!!
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him Psalm 34:8
To walk with God there is a cross you must bare. Friends will let you down, family will let you down. Everything you so much put your trust in will let you down. But Jesus Never Fails.
We were not promised a smooth journey; but we have the guarantee of a safe arrival to our destination in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

When we read this text, it tells us about the Courage & Hope in all of life’s situations and predicaments.
It makes us understand the will and passion of the apostles towards the propagation of the gospel of Christ. Notwithstanding the challenges they encountered. They ” pressed towards the mark for the price of the high calling of God, through Christ Jesus.”

Our Sufferings & Patients.
2 Corinthians 4:8-12
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

When our Lord Jesus Christ was leaving earth, He told us that we will have tribulations and trials. But He said ” Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world!” John16:33.
It means as humans we will have different challenges, it is guaranteed. Our approach towards the ups and down of life tells of how well we have been equipped.

~ We are “Troubled on every side, afflicted from different angles and in many ways” yet not Distressed. It means we are not free from any side, we are confronted always in cause of pursuing/doing the right thing. But notice one unique thing! We are not DISTRESSED. Don’t allow your situations or problems to weigh you down. Continue without looking back. The cross should be your focus, priority and your purpose.
We should have this same mind set of the apostles, We should not give up because we can see help in God.

~ We are ” Perplexed often uncertain and in doubts, of what will become of our future” but remember Jeremiah 29:11. His thoughts towards us are for good and not for evil, we will have an expected end.
Philippians 1:6 says ” we are confident of this one thing, that God which have begun the good work in us will perfect it for us.”
In all these things the Bible says ” But we are not in Despair!” Even in our greatest perplexities knowing that God is able to support us and deliver us as He has promised. We should always place our trust and hope on Him.

~ We are ” Persecuted by men”, pursued with hatred from place to place. ” Yet not forsake of God.” People may be forsaken as well been persecuted by the trials and circumstances of life. But the Bible assures us in Hebrews 13:5b that, ” He will never leave us nor forsake us!”

~ We are “Cast down and rejected ” They may in a great measure prevail, and our spirit begin to fail us. There may be fear within as well as fighting without. ” Yet we are not Destroyed!!”

We need not to have self pity. It’s not going to work at this end time. We have to encourage ourselves in The Lord like David. We need to have the mind set of Joseph, the persevering spirit of Daniel.
We should not comfort ourselves with our hardships and problem. We have to take every trials and temptation to The Lord in prayer. Just as the disciples did in the book of Acts of Apostles 4:1-34. They prayed for boldness to continue in God’s work.
The ends will always justify the means, it doesn’t matter how long it takes.
Psalm 37:37 say” mark the good man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace”
We need God’s grace, and I tell you it is more than sufficient for us.
Every hard times, trials and temptation that comes our way is a stepping stone to a new level. God will never allow what is greater than us to come our way. We can handle every hard times and bad situation. We just need to be prepared by dwelling in the word of God.
We will triumph and have a glorious victory.
Let’s all stay strong and encourage ourselves in The Lord.
God bless….

THE BORN AGAIN EXPERIENCE: Ephesians 2:1-10.


IMG_3280.PNG

Ephesians 2:1-10
1. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5. Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6. And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7. That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

IMG_3281.JPG

In the part One of these series:
We look at our miserable state of sin, when we were dead in our trespasses and how God’s grace and mercy located us.
Verse 1-3 tells us about our old state.

~ Our Unregenerate souls that are dead in trespasses and sins. All those who are in their sins, are dead in sins. Sin is the death of the soul. Wherever that prevails there is privation of spiritual life. Sinners are dead in state, being destitute of the spiritual life and cut off from God. They lack the fountain of life. And the are slave to the law.
~ A state of sin is a state of conformity to this world. Vs 2; says wherein in time past, we did walk according to the prince of the power of the air and the spirit that now work in the children of disobedience.
~ We were fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind.

Verse 4-10: gives account of God’s glorious mercy and salvation of our souls through Grace:

We must realize that salvation is free but not cheap. There are many things we have to drop in order to continue in this free gift that Christ has given us. Our old man and old ways have to be nailed to the cross.
We have grace at our disposal but we should not take the liberty Christ has given us for granted.

Our liberty and freedom from the grip of the devil is not because we are righteous, it is because of Grace. This grace is sufficient for us in every situation we find ourselves.
We ought to walk on this grace and help others trace their way Christ.
It’s is not an avenue to condemn others and put on The- Holier Than Thou Attitude. But we should remember that we were once dead to sin, grace found us, mercy saved us. We ought to pray for our fellow, believing God that they will be save.

Finally: The 10th Verse says:
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

We are now created in the Imagine of Christ Jesus, Our Life is Hid in Christ and Christ in God. It means we are Untouchable as God’s people.
As we are living a right life, before anything harms us, it must harm Christ Jesus and God first before harming us. Even the devil himself bears witness that’s impossible.
We only need to walk in the principles of holiness and righteousness; according to the will of our Heavenly Father.

God Bless.

GOD’S PLAN FOR REDEMPTION. ” JESUS THE REDEEMER.”


20140701-145419-53659687.jpg
GOD’S PLAN FOR REDEMPTION.
Rom 3:23-25.

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?

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.
