Promise, Price, and Power of Redemption Transcript

  Welcome, friends to the broadcast. I am so glad that you tuned in today and that you’re with us. We’re gonna be talking today about the price of redemption. We talked all of last week about the promises of redemption that have already been made, but today we’re talking about the price of redemption that’s already been paid. So, open your heart and receive God’s word today. Blessings. Friends, it’s great to have you with us today. And we’re sharing on redemption. We taught all of last week on the promise of redemption. And thank God there are many, many promises of redemption that God has made to us. But today, we’re gonna move into and begin to talk about the price of redemption. And the fact is that the promise of redemption has been made and the price of redemption has already been paid. So, we’re gonna be sharing about that. And the price of redemption is really the blood. And thank God for redemption, it means that Christ has purchased us with his own blood. And he purchased our forgiveness, he purchased our healing, he purchased our peace, he purchased provision, he made everything available. In fact, one of my good friends used to teach years ago. Really, there’s two things that have been paid for, righteousness and redemption, and it’s all because of the blood that Jesus shed. So, when we look into the book of Ephesians, Ephesians is a wonderful book, really talking about redemption. And the first three chapters of Ephesians talk about who we are and what we have in Christ. And in Ephesians chapter one, Paul says in verse 7, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of his grace.” Thank God redemption’s paid for.


  Yeah. You know, and I love that old song, “There’s power-power, wonder-working power in the blood of the lamb.” You know, there used to be a lot of songs, a lot of teachings on the blood of Jesus and the power of the blood. And I think it’s time that we come back to that, you know, the church needs to come back and look at what the blood has done for us.




  You know, sin is a very costly thing. I know that sin is a very costly thing because when you look at what, you know, our heavenly Father was willing to pay for us to be made righteous. You know, he paid the highest price, he paid with the blood of his only begotten son. So, I know that sin is a very costly thing. You know, it’s important that we turn from sin, repent from that and really live for God and just understand the value of what he’s done for us, the value of the blood that was shed for us.


  You know, Leviticus, I think it’s chapter 17, verse 11, but it says, “That the life of the flesh is in the blood and it’s the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” And when we begin to think about that as you study the Old Testament sacrifices, that the blood sacrifices, there was a, you know, one that gave its life, right? For the one that was set free. So, when they shed blood, it meant to give their life. And that’s what Christ did, he gave his life for us. He shed his blood. He he gave everything. There wasn’t any more that he could give. And God bankrupted heaven essentially for our redemption.


  Yeah, when you read through the Old Testament, I remember when I married my wife a few years ago, she was attending Bible school and she was required to read through all the Bible in a year. And when she was reading through Leviticus, she said, “There’s just lots of blood here. You know, why is there so much blood?” And really, it’s not that God desired those blood offerings, he didn’t really care so much about the blood of a bull, the blood of a goat. Really, they’re all pictures. You know, it’s types and shadows of what Jesus would do for us and Jesus was gonna shed his own blood for us. So, God didn’t really desire those sacrifices in the Old Testament. He was really looking for man’s heart. He was wanting to have relationship with you and with me, with all of humanity. And those blood sacrifices that they point to Jesus.




  And really, the offering of Jesus is so much more powerful than the offerings in the Old Testament, because they had to be offered over and over again. But Jesus, his offering was so powerful once he did it, that took care of all of sin for humanity.


  Right. We’re talking about the price of redemption has already been paid, you know? Jesus said three beautiful words in John 19:30. He said, “It is finished.” And thank God the work of redemption has already been paid for. And there’s nothing more that we need to do to receive redemption other than just to believe the word of God, to believe the scriptures.


  And it’s important to understand that the price has been paid and what it has been paid for. You know, some people don’t realize that the price has already been paid and they’re still trying to make payments on it.




  You know, several years ago, I finished paying off all my student loan debt. And when I got that final notice that said, paid in full, I didn’t keep sending payments, you know?


  No. Why, because it’s done.


  It’s done.


  It’s finished. And you know, about half the church, I don’t think doesn’t understand this very simple fact that it’s already done, it’s already finished. In fact, when I taught this in church, I talked about the first two aspects of this in the promise of redemption has already been made and the price of redemption has already been paid. And I talked about that, talking about the finished work. And I began the teaching by talking about, you know, the past tense of the gospel. And there’s some things that are past tense. And when we look at this scripture in Ephesians 1:7 where we started, it says, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of his grace.” Thank God, that price has already been paid. And Jesus isn’t going to the cross again, he doesn’t have to pay for our forgiveness again, he doesn’t have to pay for our healing again, he doesn’t have to pay for our peace, he doesn’t have to pay for the promises again. They have already been paid for. And when we study later this, we can talk about the book of Hebrews, it’s very clear that there was one offering for all sin of all men of all times and that is the blood of Jesus. All of these sacrifices in the Old Testament that you’re talking about, they were shed looking forward to the lamb who would come. And then all of the, when Jesus shed his blood, all the things in the New Testament look back on the cross, look back on what he’s done. And when John saw Jesus in John chapter 1, he said, “Behold the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” Jesus has already taken the sin of the world. The price for our sin has already been paid because of that, the promises of God are already ours. Second Corinthians chapter 1:20 says, “All of the promises of God in him are yes, and in him Amen, to the glory of God by us.” And essentially, God said yes when Jesus went to the cross. And when we believe that, we say amen. And we’re joining our faith with God’s grace. You know, and we didn’t bring this up, but you know, a lot of the people we are surrounded with, really focus on grace and thank God for that. But when we focus on grace, we’re really focusing on the blood of Jesus and the work that’s already been done. And I know we recently had Mark Hankins and he was preaching on the blood and he made a statement and he said, “It’s the blood plus nothing the blood minus nothing that equals everything.” Well, it’s essentially, Jesus plus nothing and Jesus minus nothing equals everything. And Jesus equals the grace of God. And it was the shed blood of Jesus Christ that paid for our forgiveness and the pain for our redemption. So, in him, we have, we already have redemption. It’s not something that we have to go and earn. We don’t have to do something to gain it. We don’t have to give an offering. We just receive it by faith in his grace.


  That’s awesome.


  By faith in the work that’s already done.


  Yeah. And I think it’s just really important that, you know, we’re talking about the price of redemption, about the blood of Jesus. And you know, you need to understand what the price was, you know, that’s been paid, but also what it has been, what it has purchased.




  And it’s purchased your righteousness, it’s purchased your salvation, it’s purchased your freedom. So, you need to understand that all these things are included in redemption, in what Jesus paid for you. You know, some people don’t realize everything that has been paid for in that price of the shed, blood of Jesus. It’s like someone taking a, you know, I heard this one story once of someone, you know, saving all their money so they could take a ship across the sea.


  It’s a great story.


  They spent all their money, you know, every night everyone would be gathered together in the dining room, but they would just be in their room, in their little room, eating saltine crackers and peanut butter every night. And then after a few weeks, you know, after a week or so, the captain came and asked him, you know, why are you just eating in your room every night? And they said, well, we spent all the money that we had on the ticket, so, we can’t afford to eat in the dining room. And the the captain said, well, it’s all included. The ticket included every meal, it included everything. It’s an all inclusive ticket. So, some people don’t realize everything that is included and what the price of the blood.




  You know, paid for you.


  That Jesus has already shed. And you know, talking about this has already been done in Ephesians chapter 1:7, it says, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of his grace.” The Colossians 1:4 says, “Even the forgiveness of sins.” And so, thank God our forgiveness has already been paid for. There’s nothing more that needs to be done for us to be forgiven. Now, when you think about forgiveness and what that means, that today we are justified, the Bible talks about. “By his blood, we’re justified by faith and we’re justified by his blood.” That’s Romans chapter 5:1 says, “We’re justified by faith.” And I believe it’s Romans 5:9 says, “Being justified by his blood.” So, we’re justified by faith in the blood. And justified means that all of our sins, you know, we’re just as if we never sinned. That’s how God sees us. So, it’s really sin that opened the doors of sickness, opened the doors of poverty, anxiety, and all the problems that we face on the earth because of Adam’s transgression in the garden. So, since that has already been paid and forgiveness, Jesus came to redeem us to buy us back from everything that Adam lost in the garden. And Adam lost his health, he lost his wealth, he lost authority, he lost all. But Jesus came to bring us us back into dominion and to get all the promises of God back to us. Amen. And too many people are living far short of what God wants them to live because they don’t really understand redemption. I want to turn also to Colossians chapter one. I love this in Colossians chapter one, it says this in verse 14, “In whom speaking of in Christ, we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of our sins.” And that word for forgiveness is talking about we have the complete pardon of our sins. Thank God our sins have been pardoned. So, since our sins have been pardoned. If someone’s pardoned, you know what? They are out free. They are not, you know, going back to pay for that sin because it’s been pardoned. Thank God. And glory to God, we have been pardoned because of the blood. And he says this, the forgiveness of sins, “Forgiveness is part of redemption.” And so, sometimes there’s an argument is forgiveness, past, present, and future or forgiveness just for past sins. But when you really understand the gospel, you find out that Jesus’ blood was the one payment that paid for all sins, past, present, and future. And our sins have already been paid for. Amen. When you begin to understand that, it will liberate you and it will transform your life. And you did quit, you know, acting like that, you know, Jesus still needs to go to the cross and you need to beg God, you’re not beggars, you’re sons and daughters of God and start enjoying the benefits of redemption. We’re gonna be back right after a short break. So, stay tuned. And we’re gonna have more to talk about when we share about the aspects of what Jesus already paid for us to have.

Blessings. How many times have we been in a place where we’ve suffered a great loss, a great difficulty, a great problem? And maybe we didn’t even realize it, but Jesus was right there with us all the time. In fact, the scripture says that he will never leave us and he will never forsake us. Thank God, even when we don’t feel it, he’s there so many times. Friends, I’m so glad that you stayed with us. We’ve been talking about redemption and we’re in Colossians chapter one. And Aaron, why don’t you start reading there in Colossians chapter one, verse 12 to verse 14, that’s really talking about what Jesus paid for us to have.


  It says, here in Colossians 1:12, “Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the son of his love, in whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins.”


  So, when we look at this, you know, we are to give thanks to the Father, It says in verse 12, “who has made us meet in the King James or made us sufficient.” I like something. One translation says that he qualified us for God’s best blessings. And we’re qualified. And we’re qualified not because of our own works, not because of our own performance, but we’re qualified through the blood of Jesus. In one sense of the word, God’s never had anybody qualified working for him yet, but the blood qualified us. And he says this, he made us sufficient to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in life. We’ve inherited some good things in Christ.


  I love that. And the Bible actually says that we’re co-heirs with Jesus. So, you know, sometimes people think of that they’re a lesser heir. You know, some people get more of an inheritance than them because they’re less favored than other people. But really in the Bible, we’re made co-heirs with Jesus. So, that means if Jesus inherits something, that we get to inherit, we get to be partakers of that same inheritance.


  Amen. And we’re partakers of the inheritance of the saints and life. It says in verse 13, “It has delivered us or freed us from the power of darkness.” It’s really forgiveness that has freed us from Satan’s power. And Satan doesn’t have power over us like he did before the cross, before Jesus went and shed his blood. But when Jesus shed his blood, he paid for all of humanity’s sin at one time. Our sins were paid for 2000 years before we were ever born. Praise God. You know, your brother, Peter, when he was just in seventh grade, he went to our summer camp, our youth camp, and he came back saying, I’m gonna go to college and I’m gonna go on a sports scholarship. And then when he was a junior in high school, he came back from camp saying, I’m going to go and I’m gonna get, I’m gonna go to Princeton University. And of course that sounded good, but not everybody gets in Princeton that applies for Princeton. And you were actually at Carnegie Mellon and you were working and for Carnegie Mellon, paying for part of your college and you were raising funds. And you said, dad, if Peter gets in Princeton, let him go because with your income, almost all of it will be paid. And so, Peter went to Princeton University, but after he got there, he met the grandson of the man that paid for his tuition over a hundred years before he was born in the 1800s. Someone gave money and that money was invested for minister’s children and missionaries children to go to Princeton University. And so, they called them all in and they said, how many of you are missionaries kids? And nobody said anything. So, after a while, Peter raised his hand and he said, “Well, I’m a son of a pastor and my dad supports lots of missionaries.” And Peter’s schooling was paid for over a hundred years before he was born. And he got in the Holy Spirit in youth camp and heard from God. And Peter actually attended Princeton University and through the avenue of football, he got there playing football and good grades, he had to have a lot of different things too. But, you know, he had to find that out and it’s the Holy Spirit that revealed it. And you know what we can find out through the Holy Spirit, what God has already paid for us to have and praise God that we have already been set free from the power, from the authority, from the dominion of darkness and translated into the kingdom of the sons of God’s love. And there are great advantages to being God’s children. Praise God. So, your redemption’s been paid for.




  Amen. We don’t have to pay anymore, we don’t have to do anymore. We can just rest in the finished work of Jesus. We can rest in the finished work of the cross. And that is hard for some people to understand. But you know, you’ve been teaching on the book of Hebrews recently, and in Hebrews chapter four, it says this in verse 10, “Let us labor therefore to enter into rest.” And it’s talking about entering into the work that was finished, he says from the foundation of the world. And when you study that out, Revelation 13:8 says that, “Jesus was the lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” God had a plan for our redemption. He had a plan for our forgiveness before we ever sinned. Praise God. So, you know what, your sins aren’t greater than the price that Jesus paid for you to be forgiven.


  I love hearing Colossians 1:13 that it says, “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of his love” You know, if you’re a believer, you are part of the kingdom of light, you don’t really have to be afraid of the kingdom of darkness.




  You know, I know a lot of people are very concerned about, you know, what the devil’s doing, what Satan’s up to, but really, as being in the kingdom of light, like, the power of darkness has no.


  No dominion over us. And you know, so many people spend their time focusing on this demon and that demon, another demon. Well, there’s devil, there’s demons, but there power has been broken. And that’s what we need to understand in the church. That’s what we need to understand today, that Jesus, it sits here in Colossians 2:15. It says that, “He spoiled principalities and powers and made us show of them openly, triumphing over the minute.” Jesus has already conquered the devil. He has already defeated the devil. And what gives us dominion over the devil is the fact that we’re forgiven. If we jump back up, it says this in verse 13, “You being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh has he made to live together with him having forgiven you again of all trespasses.” All of your sins have been forgiven. Praise God. And when you realize that, it breaks Satan’s power and it gives you dominion when you realize that you’re forgiven. And it says, “He blotted out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us and contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.” Praise God. Jesus has already paid the price. And you know, if we just jump back up from that, what he’s talking about here in Colossians chapter one, he talks about how we’re sufficient. Praise God for, God’s best blessings, God, we’re qualified, we’re set free from the devil’s power, in Christ We have redemption because we’ve already been forgiven. But then he starts talking about Jesus, he was Lord of heaven. He created all things in Colossians 1:15 to 17. And then he talks about how he was Lord of Earth and how he went to the cross and died on the cross and God raised him from the dead. But then he talks about not only is he Lord of heaven and Lord of earth, but he’s Lord of the grave in Colossians chapter two. But before he does that, right in the middle of that, he says this in verse nine, in verse 10 of Colossians two, “In him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily And you are complete in him who is the head of all principality and authority.” Jesus has already defeated the devil, he’s already conquered him, he’s already rose from the dead, he’s already victorious. And you know what he did? He gave you and me, he gave the body of Christ the keys. He said this in Revelation 1:18, “I am he who lives and was dead and behold, I am alive forevermore.” Amen. “And I have the keys of hell and death.” The devil doesn’t have the keys anymore. The devil doesn’t have the power that he once had. And you know, a lot of times Christians are more acting like the devil is all powerful, more than God is all powerful. But you know what? We serve an all powerful God, but he’s given us authority, and we’ve gotta take our authority in the name of Jesus. Jesus said, “Whatever we bind on earth would be bound in heaven. And whatever we loosed on earth would be loosed in heaven.” And when you understand that the blood of Jesus has already paid the price for your sins, you can begin to take authority in the name of Jesus over the works of the devil, and walk in the victory that Jesus has already won. You could begin to experience the promises of God today because not only did the blood pay for you to be forgiven, the blood paid for you to receive the promises.


  I like here in a Colossians 2:15 it says that, “Jesus has disarmed principalities and powers. He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” And then it goes on in verse 16 saying, “Let no one judge you in food or in drink or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbath.” So, he’s saying, because Christ has been made victorious, we don’t have to live this legalistic life. You know, we can actually walk in freedom because freedom has been purchased for us.


  Amen. Thank God he came to free us and he has freed us from Satan’s dominion. Satan is not what he used to be. Praise God. Jesus already finished the work. He already completed it. He already conquered the devil. He already rose from the dead. But you know what gives Satan power in people’s life is deception. Because they’re deceived. And many times, if you focus on the devil, if you focus on demons, if you focus on all the works of the devil, what you’re actually doing is you’re giving power to the devil. And we don’t need to give him power. We don’t need to give him the time of day. We need to take authority over him. Jesus took authority over the devil, Jesus cast the devil out. Praise God. And you know, in the Old Testament, the devil is hardly mentioned. He’s mentioned about a dozen times, and about 10 of ’em in the Book of Job. And it’s because people didn’t have authority over the devil like we have authority. But we have authority over the devil because Jesus shed his blood and paid for our redemption. And we are already forgiven. There’s nothing more that God needs to do. Amen. We just need to, you know, we sing all these things, God, would you please do this? And you know, he’s already done it in a sense. Now, the Holy Spirit still moves. But if it wasn’t for the blood that Jesus shed, see, the promise was already made, the price was already been paid. And because of that, now, the power, the spirit of God, when you start believing it and taking authority, the spirit of God will start moving. You’ll start seeing the victory that Jesus already won come to pass in your life. Aaron, why don’t you pray for the people before we go.
