As I was out working in the yard this morning I had been thinking about just what part of this series I would teach today. As I was thinking on it the Holy Spirit started talking to my spirit about 2 things REDEMPTION and RIGHTEOUSNESS this went on for some time and I just listened with my spirit at what the Lord was talking to me about.
Well He gave me a lot of information on REDEMPTION and RIGHTEOUSNESS and talked to my spirit about teaching on these 2 subjects today. THEREFORE SO BE IT.
This will be exciting, how many times I read the Book of Ephesians and didn’t have a clue what redemption and righteousness meant. I was just going through the reading and not asking for a revelation of it from the Holy Spirit. Like so many of you also.
Well through this teaching it should help you understand what you are reading in God’s Word when it mentions or implies these 2 words. Then ask the Holy Spirit to give you a revelation of it as only He can do that. Then you will understand it in a deeper way than ever before, no man can ever do that for you only the Holy Spirit can do that.
Remember we have been talking about your inheritance as a born again Christian and so many Christians do not have an understanding of the inheritance and so go through their Christian life like spiritual paupers.

So let’s continue with today’s ministry:
Let’s look at REDEMPTION then RIGHTEOUSNES which is the order that you received them if you are born again.
Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”
Redemption is not free, it cost Jesus His blood that was poured out of his physical body at Calvary’s cross and His spiritual death.
When Jesus walked this earth He was 100% man and 100% God at the same time. It is called the incarnation. Which is beyond what our mind can wrap around. But that’s okay, we walk by faith not by sight amen? 2 Corinthians 5:7
When Jesus went to the cross He felt every bit of pain a human being would feel as He went through torture beyond anything we could think of.
The crown of thorns pressed into His head, the whippings with a whip that had pieces of metal and stone tied at the end to pull flesh right out of His body and hurl it in the air with each of the 39 whippings. Then there were the nails that were driven in His hands and the one in his 2 feet. The Roman spear that was driven in Jesus side where blood and water rushed out. John 19:34
JESUS TOOK ALL OF THIS FOR YOU AND ME BECAUSE HE LOVES ALL OF YOU WITH A RADICAL LOVE. IF YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD HE WOULD HAVE DONE ALL OF THIS FOR YOU.
JESUS DID ALL OF THIS IN HIS HUMANITY NOT HIS DIETY. HE FELT EXCRUXIATING PAIN THAT WAS OFF OF THE SCALE.
How do we know that Jesus died on the cross in His humanity, well for one thing no one can kill God, He is ETERNAL and EVERLASTING in Hebrew the name is EL OLAM.
Jesus said that He laid His life down at the cross and that no one could take His life. John 10:17-18. When Jesus laid down His life at the cross He could only do that in His humanity not His deity.
The prophet Isaiah gave a better description through the revelation the Holy Spirit gave him many years before the crucifixion than those that were at the cross in Isaiah 52:14 NEW LIVING TRANSLATION: “But many were amazed when they saw Him (Jesus). His face was so disfigured He seemed hardly human, and from His appearance, one would scarcely know He was a man.”
His mother Mary could hardly recognize her own son.
So Jesus was beaten to a bloody pulp and hardly looked like a human being when they got done with Him.
Jesus went to the cross as a man, in His humanity not His deity. His humanity is called the Son of man NOT the Son of God as that is His deity.
So you remember that I said that the word REDEMPTION means to be bought back with a price, right?
The price was Jesus precious blood that He gave for you and me.
Jesus was on the cross for 6 hours and then He died physically.
That was the physical side of His death for you and me. Then there was the spiritual side.
You remember that on the cross Jesus cried out to the Father God, my God my God why have you forsaken me? Matthew 27:46
Jesus became sin for every person from Adam to the last person who will ever be born on the earth. The Bible says that the wages of sin is death (spiritual death) which means separation from God. That’s why Jesus cried out to the Father God, my God, my God why have you forsaken me as the Father God couldn’t even look on His Son Jesus as He actually became sin for us. So Jesus then died spiritually and was separated from God. (The wages of sin is death (spiritual death, separation from God). Romans 6:23
Jesus not only died physically but also died spiritually and was separated from God.
When anyone including Jesus dies spiritually it has horrible consequences.
Spiritual death ultimately means that a person goes to hell. Since Jesus became sin for us and died spiritually He went down into hell itself. The Holy Spirit gave the prophet Isaiah a revelation of Jesus going down into hell as He became sin for us. Isaiah 53:7-12.
Jesus became our substitute, He had to go to hell for us to take our place so that as we receive Him as our Savior His precious sinless blood covers us so that we are washed clean of our sins and are able to escape hell.
Finally the courts of heaven had been satisfied with the sacrifice that Jesus made for the salvation of mankind and on the 3rd day, the Father God raised Jesus from the dead. That’s why in Romans 10:9-10 which is the road to salvation we confess that the Father raised Jesus from the dead.
However before Jesus was raised from the dead He not only blotted out our sins as we ask Him into our hearts and are born again the Bible says that He spoiled principalities and powers and made a show of them openly. Colossians 2:13-15. In other words Jesus defeated death, hell and the grave and beat satan and his demonic beings in their own back yard (hell) and made a spectacle of them being triumphant over them. See Revelation 1:18, Jesus is referring back to that time in hell.
Then something else happened on that cross, Jesus didn’t just take our sin for us the Bible said He went beyond that.
IT IS CALLED RIGHTEOUSNESS:
2 CORINTHIANS 5:21 “FOR HE (THE FATHER GOD) HATH MADE HIM (JESUS) TO BE SIN FOR US, WHO KNEW NO SIN (JESUS); THAT WE (YOU AND I) MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM (JESUS).”
THANK YOU PRECIOUS LORD JESUS FOR ALL THAT YOU DID FOR ME AND ALL OF US SO THAT AS WE ACCEPT YOU AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR WE BECOME THE RIGHTOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.
You see other than asking Jesus Christ in our hearts according to John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 and meaning what we said, Jesus made REDEMPTION possible through His bloody crucifixion.
Then He became sin for us so that when we accept Him into our hearts His Spirit enters our bodies and since He is in us we have RIGHTEOUSNESS IN US BECAUSE HE IS IN US.
1 CORINTHIANS 6:19 The Apostle Paul asks this question to the Corinthian Church in disbelief that they do not already know this. “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God and ye are not your own.”
That’s why we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. The Precious Holy Spirit is literally in us.
You may not feel like you are righteous but it is a spiritual fact not a sensory fact. Feelings run up and down like a roller coaster. You cannot trust them. But you can trust the Word of God and what the Bible says is your inheritance.
On the worst day of your life you can know what your inheritance is in Christ Jesus because no one can ever take that away from you. It’s in God’s Word and it belongs to you. Jesus paid an unbelievable price for your inheritance.
I often hear people say this “Oh I am just a sinner saved by grace.”
That’s like talking out of both sides of your mouth at once, it does not make sense.
If you are really born again, YOU ARE NOT A SINNER, and you need to stop talking like that. How can you be just a sinner and yet saved by grace? IT’S IMPOSSIBLE.
You are either a sinner NOW, OR you got saved by grace but it is impossible based on the Word of God that you are both. So you need to stop contradicting the Word of God because it is not the TRUTH.
Either you are saved and not (presently a sinner) or else you are sinner and lost. You can’t be both.
There is no excuse for talk like that when you have a lap full of Bible and it is very clear what happened to you at the new birth, AND NOW I JUST WENT THROUGH THE WHOLE TEACHING ON IT.
If a person says he is still a sinner then the Bible says that no one that is a sinner will be in the Lamb’s Book of Life in Revelation 21:27 and will not be able to enter heaven.
I would sincerely advise you that if you are NOT SURE you are saved, I would take care of that right now. That’s why we always have a portion of this teaching that tells how you can be born again. Then we also have a SALVATION tab on our website to give you more information and a prayer that you can follow to be born again.
We sincerely want to help everyone, but first we want to be sure you understand what you are saying.
We cannot be a good ministers of the Gospel and not tell people the truth. I am responsible as a minister of the Gospel to not be politically correct but to tell you the truth in love.
More than anything on the face of the earth this ministry website is to lead people to be born again, the rest is important but not as important as the new birth.
We pray that the teaching on these 2 key words: REDEMPTION AND RIGHTEOUSNESS has helped you to start walking in all of the inheritance that belongs to you as a born again Christian.
Your Heavenly Father gave you the inheritance that is expressed in the Book of Ephesians and other books of the Bible to be used and blessed with but it is up to you whether you will possess it or not, it’s up to you!!!
Nita and I have been called to an evangelistic/teaching ministry.

PLEASE CONSIDER PRAYING FOR THIS MINISTRY THAT THE LORD HAS CALLED NITA AND I TO AND CONSIDER SUPPORTING THIS MINISTRY FINANCIALLY ON A REGULAR BASIS SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO GO OUT AND MINISTER WHEREVER THE LORD LEADS US.
FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE NEVER ASKED THE PRECIOUS LORD JESUS IN YOUR LIFE TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR, THE BIBLE SAYS IF THOU SHALL CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND SHALL BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD (EASTER), YOU SHALL BE SAVED. FOR WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVES UNTO RIGHTEOUNESS (RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD) AND WITH YOUR MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION. ROMANS 10:9-10
