Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy. Psalm 107:2
The Psalmist tells us to PROCLAIM the GOODNESS of the Lord, for He has REDEEMED us from the hand of the ENEMY, whom, to the TRUE BELIEVER is the devil. Even though this psalm was penned for those who had been delivered from their distresses of wandering in the wilderness, without food and water, it can be applicable to God’s Children of today. Those who He has DELIVERED and REDEEMED.
Here are some reasons why the REDEEMED, today, should SAY SO. First, Christ REDEEMED us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” (Deut. 21:23) Jesus Christ was hung on an OLD RUGGED CROSS, and took on ALL the sins of ALL mankind, He became sin, in order to DELIVER us from the CURSE. He REDEEMED us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through HIM, so that by FAITH we might receive the promise of the Spirit. (Galatians 3:13-14) We RECEIVE the blessing of JUSTIFICATION apart from the WORKS of the LAW, it is AVAILABLE to ALL who BELIEVE. And that ALL who BELIEVE would be able to RECEIVE the PROMISE of the HOLY SPIRIT.
We, who are TRUE BELIEVERS, are no longer slaves to our SINS, but because of His PLAN of REDEMPTION, we have become His Children; and since we are His Children, we also have been made an HEIR to ALL the GLORIES of HEAVEN. For the GRACE of God has appeared that offers SALVATION to ALL people. It teaches us to say “NO” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this PRESENT AGE, while we WAIT for the BLESSED HOPE---the APPEARING of the glory of our GREAT GOD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, who gave Himself for us to REDEEM us from ALL WICKEDNESS and to PURIFY for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is GOOD. (Titus 2:11-14) And this is WHY the REDEEMED of the Lord SHOULD SAY SO!! Can you PROCLAIM that you are REDEEMED? In order to do that you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become part of the REDEEMED and SAY SO!! You will then become an HEIR to an ETERNAL HOME in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. And you will ESCAPE HELL with ALL its HORRORS. So do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
