Redemption from Christ - on a personal level

Redemption is a personal thing between you and the Savior. Redemption deals with the believer and the believer's present tense relationship with God in Christ. A redeemed heart is a forgiven heart; a clean heart; and a heart that desires right living. In redemption...sins from the past are erased. Life in the present tense is a life in right-standing with God. Redemption is consciousness to the presence of Christ; and accountability in the holiness of the Spirit. Personal faith in Christ is a responsible life to Christ...on a daily basis. Redemption is received in personal forgiveness. Redemption is pardon from all past sin. Redemption is a new way of thinking because the heart and soul has been cleansed. Redemption gives the believer in Christ - a new confession.

  ...Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.

 The confession of redemption is heart-felt and flows from the Holy Spirit's witness in the heart. The confession of a sinner is not a confession of redemption found in the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus Christ. Sin defeats redemption. Sin separates man from life. Sin and death have no place in redemption.

 Romans 5:8-11...But God commendeth his love toward 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. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

Atonement that flows from Calvary brings redemption to the human soul in the present tense. Atonement that flows from Calvary is not blanket coverage to sin, nor does Atonement cover future sin. Atonement is a "present tense blessing" found from personal faith in the suffering of a Savior. By His obedience are many made righteous. Redemption is the out flow of Calvary. Personal faith in Christ brings redemption into the human soul. Personal faith in Christ allows God to redeem, to pardon, and to justify. This is what it means to be Justified by the blood of Christ. Redemption saves the believing soul from the wrath to come. Redemption reconciles and saves man by giving hope and peace to the human soul.

Joy bubbles from within when the conscience is clear from the guilt of sin. Being happy is the confidence of the redeemed of Christ. Peace, joy, and happiness are the products of the redemptive work of Christ in the human soul. Redemption offers the believer in Christ a clean heart and the holy life. That's why scriptures teach, "by whom we have now received the atonement". The word "now" is a present tense word with no relation to a future tense covering of sin.

Romans 5:8-11...But God commendeth his love toward 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. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

 Redemption is present tense. Redemption is a personal blessing from God. Redemption makes people accountable to God in the present tense. Don't take redemption for granted to cover your future sin. Redemption will give you the power to cease from sin; to live right, and to do right. Redemption produces holiness of character. Redemption is responsibility to Christ. Redemption is a part of God's Word that condemns sin and never condones sin. Redemption blots out sin. Redemption makes you holy and right in the eyes of God. Redemption should never be taken lightly. Redeemed people want to make the long haul with Christ.

Redemption is deliverance. Deliverance is freedom from the bondage of sin. We confess redemption to "magnify" Christ as Savior and Redeemer. Redeemed saints have hope of going to Heaven. Those who are not redeemed have to real hope and end up in Hell. Some have been redeemed for 20 - 40 years and then go back into  fornication, alcohol, or adultery. Redemption will not automatically cover such style of living or sin that bringeth death to the human soul. If one dies in an unredeemed state that soul is Hell bound for 50 million years plus...whether they believed redemption covered their sins or not.  Sin melts away in redemption that brings forth the holy and eternal future. When sin is finished it bringeth forth death..

James 1:15...Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

 Death has no place in redemption. Redemption abolishes death and brings forth life in the Spirit of God. Redemption is in the "now". Redemption is on personal level. The human soul longs for redemption but sin keeps the unredeemed mind blind to the consequences of Eternal damnation. Redemption is found in the suffering of Christ. Redemption is found in the suffering of Christ. Redemption is found in the suffering of Christ. Without redemption the human soul is lost. Without faith in Christ its impossible to be redeemed. The redeemed of Christ have a testimony because they experience the witness of God in their soul.  The redeemed have a daily walk with God because they are cleansed from sin. The redeemed of Christ walk in the Spirit, not in the flesh. Personal redemption is crucial to your witness; crucial to your light; and crucial to the assurance of life beyond this life. The redeemed of Christ bring honor to God, not dishonor. The redeemed of Christ live by the power of God's Grace and do not disgrace Him. Let the redeemed of the Lord, "Say so"...because they "know" and "experience" personal redemption. That's why it says the conscience is "purged" from dead works .

Hebrews 9:14...How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Grace removes guilt from sin

The only thing in life that can remove guilt from the human conscience is the Grace of God. God speaks "pardon" to the human soul. Rest in the soul is experienced. Peace from God is made known. Guilt from all past sin is lifted when reconciliation is found in the redemptive work of Christ.
