Promise, Price, and Power of Redemption Transcript

  Praise the Lord, friends, and welcome to the broadcast. I’m so glad that you’ve tuned in today. We’re gonna be talking about the promise, the price, and the power of redemption. I thank God for this old song that says, “Jesus Paid It All.” Thank God your sin, debt has been paid, and because of that, all of the promises of God are available to you today. Be blessed. Friends, it’s so good to have you today on the program. We’re blessed. I’m so excited to have my son, Aaron here. We’re gonna be talking a little bit about redemption, and we’re gonna talk about the past, present, and future tense aspects of redemption. There’s actually three different aspects of redemption, and when we talk about this message, we’re gonna be talking about, first of all, the promise of redemption. And the promise is something that the Father gave, and Jesus actually paid for all the promises. And then we’re gonna be talking about the price of redemption, which is the blood of Jesus. And then later in the week we’ll be talking about the power of redemption. And the power of redemption is the Holy Spirit. And so the Father made the promise, and we got a Bible full of promises. You know, one of the first things that happened to me when I got baptized in the Holy Spirit in Andrew Wommack’s Bible study over 40 years ago was that the Bible came alive to me. I thought, I have a Bible full of promises that I can believe. I don’t have to just hang on and exist and hope to God I make it. And there are a lot of believers in churches that kind of think, you know, we’re really powerless in this situation. We’re just trying to hang on and hope to God we make it. In fact, I was a part of a Pentecostal denomination for a while, and one of the main leaders of the state of Colorado and state of Utah in that denomination came to our church. And he said, “Are you just hanging in there?” I said, “No, I’m walking in there.” I was probably 20 years old, but that’s the truth. You know, we have authority and we’re walking in there, and we’re not just hanging in there and hoping to God we make it. And so many people just think, “Well, it’s all up to God. And we’re just hanging on and hoping to God we make it.” And that’s not the truth. It’s kind of like we got one foot in the grave and one foot in a banana peel, just hoping to God we make it. Well, we’re not just hoping so, we know so, and we know, but the promise God made, the Father made, and then Jesus already paid the price. Redemption is a finished work in light of the cross. You know, Jesus said three beautiful words in Isaiah 50, or John 19, and he said, “It is finished!,” John 19:30. And as far as the payment, the payment for redemption has already been paid. And Aaron, you’ve been teaching on the book of Hebrews, but when you study the book of Hebrews, the price has already been paid. There is one offering for all sin of all time, and there isn’t any more payment that needs to be made for our sin, for our redemption, for any of the promises. Our healing has already been paid for, our peace has already been paid for, our prosperity has already been paid for, the blood of Jesus paid the price, the same blood that bought our salvation, that bought our forgiveness, bought our healing, bought our peace, bought our prosperity, bought all the promises.


  I’m really glad we’re sharing on redemption this week. Redemption is so powerful, and I think a lot of Christians don’t really understand redemption. You know, I love the old hymn that says: “There is power, power, wonder-working power, in the blood of the Lamb.” And you really see the promise of redemption all throughout scripture.




  That promise that we’ll be talking about, it’s been, you know, the Bible says that Jesus was the Lamb slain before the foundations of the world. So that promise of redemption goes back to before the world was spoken into existence. Jesus was with the Father when he created the heavens and the earth. And when he created, you know, mankind, when he created Adam, Jesus was with the Father. And God has always had a plan of redemption, even at the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve sinned. God actually spoke the gospel.


  Right? He enacted redemption. I love the scripture you brought up. That’s Revelation 13:8, that Jesus was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. So before we were ever here, before we ever sinned, before we were ever created, God had a plan.


  And God has a plan for you. You know, you’re not gonna just settle for, “I’m just hanging in there having that beer” mentality when you understand that God has a plan for you. You know, I love what the Bible says in Romans 8:32, “He who did not spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” If you understand redemption, if you understand that the Father spare not his only son, of course he’s gonna take care of these other issues that you’re facing right now. You don’t need to worry. You don’t need to fret, you don’t need to fall apart. Then when you understand what God has given us through the blood of Jesus, through what he’s given-




  Man, that’s powerful to understand that.


  Amen, so God had this plan of redemption before the foundation of the world. And then, you know, when he created man, Adam and Eve, man and woman, male and female, when He created them after they sinned in Genesis 3, immediately after they sinned, God came walking in the garden, in the cool of the day. What did God do? God came after them. You know, we have this teaching that sin separates us from God, but what did God do when man sinned? God came after ’em. And what did He do? He killed an animal. He clothed them with skin. That’s a type of redemption. He covered them. I’m so glad that redemption covers us, that our sins are covered, you know. The Bible actually talks about that we have propitiation through faith in his blood. That means a covering through faith in his blood, in Romans 3.


  When he took those animal skins and covered Adam and Eve, he was doing that out of love. The Bible says that love covers a multitude of sin. And that’s really the first time that that type of sacrifice was enacted in the Bible. And it’s pointing to the sacrifice of Jesus, that the blood of Jesus, that love shed abroad, it’s gonna cover a multitude of sin.


  Yeah. So, God covers our sin. God, he’s not exposing us.




  You know, a lot of people think that God is exposing our sin, but God’s covering our sin, and Satan is the accuser of the brethren. And when you think about that right there in Genesis 3, right after Adam and Eve sin, even before he clothed them with skins, in Genesis 3:15, we see the first promise in the Bible of redemption. The seed of the woman will crush the serpent’s head, speaking, you know, of what God was gonna do through Jesus. Jesus is the seed of the woman. Praise God! So we see God had this plan of redemption before the foundation of the world. Jesus was the lamb slain from the foundation of the world, Revelation 13:8. He had a plan of redemption, and then he created the heaven, he created the earth, he created everything in it. He gave Adam, you know, some responsibilities, gave him a beautiful place to live. But after Adam sinned, he only had one commandment: do not eat of the tree, which is in the midst of the garden. God even made it hard to get to. And there was a choice. There was the tree of the life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. So he had a choice. And so he ate; he made the wrong choice. And really Eve ate first of the tree. The Bible talks about this in Timothy, but Eve was deceived, but Adam knew what he was doing.


  Well, in the same way that the devil deceived Eve, he’s trying to deceive people today. He’s trying to get people to question God’s goodness. You know, God is holding out on you. He doesn’t want you to be like him. He was deceiving Eve really with getting her to question God’s character. And that’s what a lot of people in the world do today. Even some people in the church, they really question God’s character.


  Yeah, if you think you’re missing out, right, like a victim mentality, I’m missing out. You know, I’m not getting something that belongs to me. Did you know that it’s God, you know what, God, we are not missing out.


  He’s not holding back.




  You know, a lot of people think that God’s withholding things from him. But right here, you know, I love what I read in Romans 8:32, “He who did not spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” God’s not withholding any good thing.


  Yes. Amen.


  Any good thing. God does not wanna withhold it from you. He does not wanna withhold blessing from you. He does not wanna withhold victory from you. He does not wanna withhold joy from you. He does not wanna withhold healing from you. God is not withholding. He wants to give you everything. That’s why he gave you Jesus.




  And understand redemption is a powerful thing. There’s so much that, you know, that the promise of redemption. Really, we have so many promises available to us as believers through the blood of Jesus, through redemption. All the promises of God are in him. Yes. And amen.


  In Him. Yes. And in Him. Amen. Praise God. And you know what, God essentially said yes at the cross. And when we believe that, I heard Marilyn Hickey preach us one time. He said, God said yes at the cross. And when we agree with it and say amen. So grace provided it, right? When we talk about the price of redemption is the blood, we just had Mark Hankins here; he was talking about the blood and he said, the blood plus nothing, the blood minus nothing equals everything. And, really, preaching on the blood is synonymous with preaching on grace because we say this, Jesus plus nothing equals everything, right? When we preach the grace of God, when we teach that from Galatians 5:2-4, that’s essentially what that’s saying. If you be justified by the law, Christ will profit you nothing. So Jesus plus nothing. And preaching grace is essentially preaching on the blood because it’s saying Jesus paid it off, but Grace provided it. But it takes faith to receive it. You know, and the Bible actually says this in Galatians 5:6. It says, faith works by love. So that’s not talking about us walking in love, that’s actually talking about when you get a revelation of the love of God, when you get a revelation of the grace of God, when you get a revelation of what the blood of Jesus has done for you, man, that’ll cause your fate to work. So we got these old Pentecostal people that are preaching on the blood, and then we got new covenant people, you know, preaching on grace. And we’re essentially saying the same thing. And a lot of times they’re trying to, you know, argue with one. That’s crazy. We’re saying the same thing. We’re saying Jesus paid it all. And what we need to do is believe it, praise God. And when we believe it, then we can begin to receive it. And so God made these promises of redemption in the Old Testament, and we have a Bible full of promises that we can believe. That’s one of the first things that came to me when I got baptized in the Holy Spirit, is I got a Bible full of promises that I can believe. And when I got involved in Andrew Wommack’s Bible study, when I’m 14 years old, hallelujah, 35 years ago. Man, this is amazing. And you know what? My life has gotten better, actually 45 years ago. I’m getting up there. So 45 years ago I heard that truth. And it transformed my life when I began to believe it. And you know what? God was no respecter of persons. He’s only a respecter of faith. And so when we come back, we’re gonna talk about faith a little bit because it’s through, you know, we receive these promises through putting faith in what God has already done in the person of Jesus. And you’ve got a great example of faith. So you can share it here, but we’ll be back in just a few seconds. So stay tuned. You don’t wanna miss this. This teaching that Aaron has on faith, it really, really excites me because, you know, when he talks about what God is looking at is faith, man, it excites me because I know that I have faith. And the fact is, you can have faith too. Amen. And because it’s available, he’s not a respecter of persons. He’s a respecter of faith. And faith in God is available to you. Amen. So we’re gonna come back and talk a little bit about that just after the break. So stay tuned, you don’t wanna miss this. Blessings. Friends, thanks so much for being with us today. I’ve been teaching on the promise, the price, and the power of redemption. And you can download my other teachings on redemption, Redemption and The Essence of Redemption, from our website store at These are available to you free of charge today because of the generosity of our partners. Blessings. 2 Corinthians 5:19 said, “God was in Christ, not imputing the trespasses of the world to them, but he has forgiven them for all trespasses.” So as far as forgiveness is concerned, with God and a born again person, you have already been forgiven. Praise the Lord. Friends, I’m so glad that you stayed with us. I said, when we came back, we would talk a little bit about faith. I wanna share this scripture because this has been coming to me all morning as we’re here beginning this series on redemption. In Romans 3:25, it says, “God sent forth Jesus to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are passed through the forbearance of God.” In other words, that word forbearance means God knew you’d do it and he forgave you anyway. He paid for it, anyway. If we jump up just verse 24, one verse before that, he says, “We’re justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Thank God for the promises of redemption. And he says, “We’re justified freely by his grace, through redemption that is in Christ Jesus. And God sent Jesus to be a propitiation, a covering, a payment through faith in his blood to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past.” Thank God there is no more remembrance of our sins through the forbearance of God.


  One neat thing to think about in understanding the redemption, what the blood of Jesus did for us, it paid the debt, but not only that, it didn’t just pay the debt, but it actually overpaid. You actually now have an inheritance.




  You have an inheritance of blessing. An inheritance of favor. An inheritance of righteousness. The blood of Jesus doesn’t just put you at zero.




  It doesn’t put your spiritual bank account at zero. It actually gives you, you’re made a co-heir with Jesus. So that means what he has achieved, you know, through his death, burial, and resurrection, it’s now available to us.


  Amen. His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness through our relationship with Jesus, through the knowledge of him who called us to glory and to virtue.


  So the blood of Jesus, it satisfied the debt, but it actually was an overpayment.


  Amen. It paid for all the promises.


  It paid for you to be able to receive the Holy Spirit.


  Praise God. And when you understand that, that’s really talking about grace again, it’s talking about what Jesus did for us. And when you begin to understand that, then your faith begins to work. Praise God. And Aaron, I said when we came back, we would talk about faith, and I want you to talk a little bit about faith and how faith works.


  Yeah, and actually a great place to start is right here in Romans 3. You were reading verse 24 and 25. But I love what verse 27 and 28 says. It says, “Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.”


  Yeah. Faith is a spiritual law.


  Yeah. “Therefore, we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.” So justified means to be made right in God’s sight. Just as if I never sinned. So justified means to be made right in God’s sight. So in the realm of the spirit, the only thing that God sees is faith. He’s not looking at your works. He’s not looking how good you’ve been, how good you were yesterday, how good you were 20 years ago. He’s not looking at how good your parents were. The only thing he’s looking at is faith. We see that all over in the life of Jesus. Actually, when Jesus preached his very first sermon after being, you know, baptized by John the Baptist, after, you know, fasting in the desert, being tempted by the devil, overcoming him, then returning in the power of the Spirit. He went to his hometown of Nazareth. I believe, this is Luke 4. He was handing the scroll of Isaiah and he opened it up and started preaching about who he was, who he is.


  The Messiah, the anointed one.


  And people were wondering, “Is he talking about himself?” And he told ’em, “This is fulfilled in your ears today.” And then he gave ’em two examples from the Old Testament that really set ’em off. He made ’em so mad that they loved his first sermon so much that they tried to kill him. They tried to run him off a cliff.




  But it said that he passed through the midst of them. So the two examples that he gave, there are examples of faith. And he said there were many lepers.




  You know, in the days of-


  Naaman, the Syrian.


  Of Elisha, but none were healed, but Naaman, the Syrian, so Naaman was a Syrian, he was the general of one of the biggest enemies of Israel. The Syrians are still enemies with the nation of Israel. They still shoot missiles. But Naaman put faith in the one true God of Israel. That’s why he was healed. And Jesus also gave another example of faith. There were many widows in the days of Elijah. But none were help. None were, you know, Elijah was only sent to one. And it was this widow from Zarephath. Zarephath is in the region of Sidon. Sidon was where Jezebel was from. She was the princess of Sidon. She was, you know, she brought Baal worship; Sidon was the Mecca for Baal worship. And Elijah was sent there. Why? Because God knew that there was a widow there that would put faith. And the one true God of Israel and the words that the prophet spoke that said, before you feed yourself and your son, you feed me first, and the jar, it’s not gonna run out. The flower’s not gonna run out, the oil’s not gonna run out. And for years, she had a miraculous provision. So Jesus gave these two examples and they wanted to stone him after those. But he was making a big point. And you see it all throughout his ministry, that in the realm of the spirit, God doesn’t see anything. He doesn’t see race, he doesn’t see gender, he doesn’t see your previous history. He sees faith. You know, and I have a background in classical music. I actually have a doctorate from Rice University in music. I play the flute. And when I was going to grad school at Rice, a good friend of mine that I played with, he was a bassoon player. And when he was just 22, I think he was 23, actually, years old, he decided to apply for the number one bassoon position in the United States. It’s the top paid position with the top paid orchestra in the United States. He applied for the principal bassoon spot with the Met Opera Orchestra in New York City. When he applied, there were over 400 people who sent in their resumes. Around 200 people were invited to this audition. And the Met Opera has a unique audition process where actually every single stage of the audition is blind. It’s behind a screen. So some of you have maybe seen the show “The Voice.” It’s a show where the judges can’t see who’s singing. They don’t know if, you know, that person’s, you know, fat or skinny, or tall or short, or old or young, they can’t see them.


  That’s great.


  They can only hear their voice. And after they vote if they want or not, that, you know, their chair spins around and they can see who it is. So this orchestra actually, the judges, the jury members can’t see who’s playing until they pick a winner. So those 200 people who are invited to the audition, they’re just given a number one through 200 and they, you know, it takes several days just to hear each person playing the first round. Then from there, they whittle it down to maybe 20, whittle it down to 10, whittle it down to four or five, whittle it down to two, and then they hear the two people still behind a screen. And then they pick the winner, and that person that they pick is gonna stay there till the day that they die. They’re people who play in some of these positions for 50 years.




  And they don’t even know what that person looks like. They pick the winner. They don’t know if that’s a man or if that’s a woman. They actually, you know, have carpet out on the stage. So when they walk out, they can’t hear their shoes clicking. So they don’t know if they’re wearing high heels or-


  They have a black screen.


  And a black screen. You can’t see through it all. The only thing they hear is the sound of their instrument cutting through that curtain. That’s the only thing that cuts through that curtain. In the realm of spirit, the only thing that cuts the veil into God’s presence is faith.


  Amen. That is so encouraging. Every time you say that, when you’re preaching, I just wanna shout, in fact I probably do. Because what that means is it’s, praise God, it’s not about what somebody else does. It’s not about what somebody else thinks. It’s about me and my relationship with God. And my relationship with God is based on two things. It’s based on the grace of Jesus Christ. Amen. The blood of the lamb and my faith. The word of my testimony, praise God. And when I begin to understand that, I can shout and glorify and magnify God because nobody else is gonna keep me outta what God has for me. A lot of people in this world, they got a victim mentality and they think, “Well, somebody cut me short. Somebody did this, somebody did that, and that’s keeping me out.” Nobody can keep you outta what God has for you. Amen. That is the good news. That is the gospel. It says right there in the scripture you just read, which is a great scripture, Romans 3:27, “Boasting is excluded because of the law of faith.” Glory to God. Faith is a spiritual law. Faith will work for anybody, anywhere. If faith will work, it doesn’t matter how old you are, how young you are, how rich you are, how poor you are, what race you are, what side of the tracks you grew up on. It doesn’t matter who your parents are. It doesn’t matter who your grandparents are. It doesn’t matter what school you went to. All it matters is between you and Jesus. Man and when you begin to understand, that it’s so empowering. It’s so life giving because nobody can keep us out of what God has for us. Amen. All the promises of God in him, in Christ are yes and in Him, amen, to the glory of God by us. God said yes when he sent Jesus to the cross. Amen. You read the scripture, Romans 8:32, “If God be for us,” verse 31, “who can be against us?” Then verse 32, “He that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him freely give us all things?” That means if God gave you Jesus, God gives you anything. If God gave you Jesus, why wouldn’t God heal your body? If God gave you Jesus, why wouldn’t he forgive your sin? If God gave you Jesus, why wouldn’t he prosper you? If God gave you Jesus, why wouldn’t he give you peace? And when you begin to understand that nobody can keep you out of what God has for you, that is so empowering. You know, I love Romans. I think it’s Romans 3, 4 say this, “Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?” It says, “God forbid.” Paul says in the strongest language that he can say from a pulpit without being offensive. God forbid, absolutely not. Nobody’s unbelief can keep you out of the promises.


  And our Bible is full of promises.




  You know, I just love the Bible because you just see promises all throughout scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. There are so many promises available to us.


  Amen. Praise God.


  As believers, you know, available to us because Jesus paid with his own blood. So it didn’t just pay a debt, but it actually gave us way beyond.


  Overpaid it.


  Overpaid it. You know, a lot of believers just stuck it, you know, just right before the cross, right at the cross. They don’t realize that Jesus got up out of that grave. There is power to redemption as well.




  There is power. So we are way beyond just zero. Our sins have been washed away, but we’re given righteousness.




  You know, at the same time, you know, he took sins on the cross, he also took sickness upon him. He was wounded for our transgressions, bruise for our iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon him. And by his stripes, we are healed. So at the same time, he took sickness on him. He gave us divine health.


  Amen. Praise God. That’s so powerful.
