He has sent redemption to His people. He has ordained His covenant forever. His name is holy and awe-inspiring. Psalm 111:9
REDEMPTION: the act of REDEEMING, which is to RESCUE from sin and from being punished for one’s sins.
ORDAINED: To ESTABLISH
It all started in the Garden of Eden, when MANKIND (Adam and Eve) DISOBEYED God. The Crown of God’s Creation, DISOBEYED their Creator, and because of their DISOBEDIENCE they were PUNISHED for their sins. So this has been the plight of mankind throughout the ages.
I believe that God’s Heart was broken, sure He knew this would happen. And He gave mankind the ability to make their own choices. Adam and Eve, chose to do what God told them NOT to do, they were DISOBEDIENT. And God from ETERNITY PAST, in His INFINITE KNOWLEDGE, KNEW that MANKIND would NEED REDEMPTION.
This Psalm was specifically written for the Nation of Israel, at the time of their EXODUS from Babylon back to Jerusalem. But I believe that God has shown me that this Scripture is applicable for ALL of mankind. WE ALL NEED to be REDEEMED from our SINS, in order to ESCAPE ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, which would be spending an ETERNITY in HELL.
However, because of GOD’S HEART of REDEMPTION, mankind has the opportunity to be REDEEMED through the ORDAINED, NEW COVENANT, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and His REDEMPTIVE, SACRIFICIAL DEATH on the Cross of Calvary, and His GLORIOUS RESURRECTION from DEATH and the GRAVE. He is the VICTOR, the REDEEMER of ALL MANKIND, those who will BELIEVE and ACCEPT GOD’S SALVATION which comes from His HEART of REDEMPTION. Will you make the RIGHT CHOICE? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you are living in DISOBEDIENCE to Him. And your ETERNAL DESTINATION is HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE. But because of GOD’S HEART of REDEMPTION, you have the opportunity NOW, to change that DESTINY by: WILLINGLY TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and receive HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, as your ETERNAL HOME. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
