Promise, Price, and Power of Redemption Transcript

  Praise the Lord, friends. There is power, power, wonder-working power in the blood of the Lamb. We’re gonna be talking today about the price of redemption, the price that Jesus paid for you when He shed His blood on the cross. Thank God the payment has already been made, so open your heart, and receive the Word today. Friends, it’s so good to have you with us today, and I have Aaron here. We’re talking about the price of redemption. And we talked about in Ephesian 1:7, “In Christ we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches, the ultimate wealth of His grace.” And then we talked about Romans chapter three, verse 24 and verse 25, that talks about, “In Him, we have redemption.” Thank God we have redemption in Jesus, and when we put faith in His blood, we are redeemed. Praise God. And then, we moved into Hebrews chapter nine, and Hebrews is really talking about we have a better covenant established on better promises, and what makes it better is Jesus. Praise God? And that’s really essentially in Hebrews seven, he says, “We have a better priest.” Hebrews eight, “We have a better covenant.” Hebrews nine, “We have a better sanctuary, which is the body of Christ, and we have a better sacrifice, which is the blood of Christ.” And he talks about how early in Hebrews nine here, in verse 12-14, how those Old Testament sacrifices really dealt with the outward man of the flesh, but the New Testament sacrifice of the blood of Jesus deals with our spirit, and it purges us from dead works, from a performance-based mentality, to make us servants of the Living God.


  I love that it talks about it can purge your conscience.




  You know, a lotta people just are really stuck in how they think, stuck in their attitudes, stuck, but the blood of Jesus can actually purge your soul. Your conscience is part of your soul. It’s part of your mind, your will, your emotions, your thinking processes, your imaginations, but the blood of Jesus can actually purge that. You know, I know people who’ve been through very traumatic experiences, where really, they could be stuck there, and maybe psychologists might think that you’re gonna be stuck there, but the blood of Jesus can actually free them from those emotions, from that trauma, from that just cycle of pain. The blood of Jesus can purge your conscience.


  Amen, and you gotta get your eyes off of your performance and your works, right, and you gotta get your eyes on Jesus, His performance and what His work has already accomplished for you. And that’s really the heart, really, of this teaching, is that the price has already been paid. It’s finished. “By His stripes, you were healed.” “Christ hath,” past tense, “redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.” Your sins are already forgiven, and when you go ask God to forgive you, God doesn’t have to wonder about it or worry about it. I mean, it’s already been paid for, so when you just believe it, and you can receive it.




  Praise God, and it changes the way that you live. And so he goes on and begins to talk about, if we go on down, and we talked about for a minute, in verse 15 to verse 18, or 15 to verse 17, how Jesus was the one who basically made the will, and then He died to enact it, and He rose again to carry it out. And so He was with the Father, making the will. He died to bring it into force, and then He rose again to execute it and carry it out. But then, he begins to talk about, when we move into verse 18, about the blood again. And he said in verse 19, “When Moses spoke every precept to all the people, according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats and the water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled the book, and then he sprinkled the people.” And he said, you know, basically, “By this blood,” you know, “God has enjoined. This is the blood of the testament, which God has joined to you.” God joined you to the promises, amen, joined the promises to you by the blood of Jesus, and it’s the blood of Jesus that pays for the promises. We don’t pay for the promises with our goodness.


  Yeah, it’s really neat, just thinking about this dedication service, really, when the law, when the old covenant was dedicated, just how powerful this was, was dedicated with blood. It said Moses actually sprinkled blood on the people and on the book itself.




  And, you know, I think about another dedication service in the Old Testament, when Solomon’s Temple was dedicated.


  You, it said that the power of God was so strong that the priests couldn’t even stand, you know.


  And really, we have something so much better now in the new covenant. We have something so much better. All these things were types and shadows. They were foreshadowing what would happen later.


  So now, the blood of Jesus has been sprinkled on the promises, on the Word of God. It’s been sprinkled on us.


  We’re covered by the blood.


  But also, you know, we have a better temple as well, a better priest, a better temple. You know, we don’t just go to a, something that’s a picture, a copy of the Holy of Holies. We could actually go, we can go straight to the Holy of Holies.




  You know, if people fell down, you know, in the presence of God in the Old Testament, and certainly, we can experience that power of God, that presence of God in the New Testament as well.


  Right, so the blood of Jesus actually secured the promise, but after he sprinkled the book and the people and said, “By this blood,” or, “This is the blood of the covenant, which God has enjoined to you,” God joined the covenant to us. He goes on and says this, “Moreover,” in verse 21, “with the blood, he sprinkled both the tabernacle and the vessels of ministry.” So we’re covered by the sacrifice. You know, my good friend Andrew Wommack said this for years: “God, in one sense, has never had anybody qualified working for Him yet, but what qualifies us, you know, to receive from God, what qualifies us to minister is the blood of Jesus.” Praise God, and he says this, “And almost all things are purged by the law with the blood, and without the shedding of blood, there is no remission.” So He secured the promise. We’re covered by the sacrifice. We can minister because of the blood of Jesus, but also, it sanctified. It’s the blood that sanctified the believer, praise God. And he goes on, and he reiterates it again at the end of this chapter, that Jesus has already done the work. He says, “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many, and unto those that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” So thank God we’ve been sanctified by the blood. We’re qualified for God’s best blessing, and now, we can go share this. We can share this good news with other people. And when you look into Hebrews 10, he continues to talk about the blood of Christ. And he says, “By the which will this new covenant,” in Hebrews 10:10, “we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus once for all.” Jesus doesn’t have to go to the cross again. He’s not, He went to the cross once. He paid for all people’s sin, of all time. He secured the promise. And now, we have this new covenant, and we’ve been set free. He says, now, he compares this with the Old Testament in verse 11. “Every priest,” Hebrews 10:11, “stands daily, ministering oftentimes the same sacrifices which can never take away sin.” But Jesus’ blood took away our sin. “But this man, after He offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down,” one sacrifice for sins forever, “sat down on the right hand of God.” When He sat down, it’s like, “Man, this work is finished. It’s done. I’ve done my part,” hallelujah?




  “From that point, expecting His enemies to be made His footstool.” You know, when you really understand this as a believer, that, “In Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily,” Colossians 2:9-10, “and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all authority and power,” you begin to take authority in the name of Jesus. You begin to take authority through the promises of God, through what God’s given you. So Jesus sat down, expecting His enemies to be made His footstool. We have authority over the devil. Jesus is the head. We’re the body. We’re the fullness of Him “that now carries out all things. For by one offering has He perfected those forever that are sanctified.” This is Hebrews 10:14. That word perfected in the Greek is the word teleio, and it means to make perfect, to finish, to fulfill, to be perfect, to consecrate, to complete, to carry out, to accomplish, to bring to an end, to bring to a close by an act or an event to finish it. Jesus finished the work. There’s literally nothing else that needs to be done. We just need to believe it and receive it, and we can receive the benefits of what’s already been done. Praise God. We don’t have to do anymore. And we are not human doings. We’re human beings. And the blood changes who we are.


  It’s so powerful. You know, I like the first two verses in Hebrews 10. It’s talking about how powerful the sacrifice of Jesus is, you know. It says in verse one, “For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come and not the very image of the things can never, with these same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.” He’s saying Jesus is the real thing. You know, all these Old Testament sacrifices, they were a copy.




  They weren’t the original. Jesus is the original. You know, the original is so much better than a copy. You know, if someone were to call me and say, “Hey, Aaron, Pastor Aaron, I wanna give you, you know, this painting I have,” and, you know, it looks like a Picasso. And I’d take it to someone and say, “Well, is this an original, or is it a copy?”




  I’d be a lot more excited to have the original than a copy. You know, and people got very excited about the, you know, in the Old Testament, when they would make sacrifices, they got very excited, but it’s not even the real thing. These are just copies. And also, just going on, it says, “For then,” you know, in verse two, “would they have ceased to be offered, for the worshipers, once purified, would have no more consciousness of sin.” So he’s saying if this sacrifice is powerful, it would just remove even your thinking about it. You know, when I finished paying off all my debt, I don’t think about it anymore. I don’t think about, you know, “I need to make a payment.”




  When something has been paid in full, you don’t think about it anymore.


  Yeah, Satan is a master of deception, and what he tries to do is get people to, you know, fret and be frustrated about their own sin.


  They think there’s still a debt.


  And just stay focused on their misgivings, their, you know, shortcomings, this and that. We need to get our eyes off of ourself. We need to get our eyes on Jesus. We need to realize what He’s done, and it changes how we live. And it not only changes our spirit. It has the power to change our soul and our body. Look at this in Hebrews 13, verse 20 and 21. He says, “Now, the God of peace that brought again from the dead the Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant.” It is the blood of Jesus that does this for us, “Make you perfect in every good work to do His will.” Spirit, soul, and body. He says, “Working in you, in your spirit, that which is well-pleasing to His sight.” So He starts in the spirit. You know, the Bible says in Philippians 2:13, “God, who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure.” He’s working in us to will, works on our soul, and then to our body. And so what, He turns it around here, through the blood, He makes you perfect in every good work in the body because of what He’s doing in your will, but that started in your spirit, “working in you that which is well-pleasing in His sight through Jesus, to whom be glory forever and ever, amen.” So God is already working in you, and He’s working by the Spirit of God, and it’s because of the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus covered our sins. So now, the Spirit of God lives in us, and the Spirit of God makes us willing, so that now, we’re going out and doing the will of God. You can do the will of God when you let the blood of Jesus have its complete work. We’re gonna be back right after this break, and we’re gonna talk some more about the price has already been paid. 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. If you’re really operating in faith, two things are gonna be happening. Number one, you’re gonna get joyful. And number two, you’re gonna get thankful, and you’re gonna start seeing what you have instead of what you don’t have. You’re gonna quit complaining. You’re gonna quit whining. You’re gonna quit acting like a victim. “As you have received Christ Jesus, the Lord, so walk ye in Him, rooted, built up, established in the faith as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Friends, I’m so glad that you stayed with us. We’re talking about the price of redemption, and the price of redemption is the blood of Jesus. Aaron, when I grew up, there was this song. “If I had all the money this world had to give, it wouldn’t be enough to buy one drop of the blood that was shed for my salvation, that was shed for my redemption.” Thank God for the blood of Jesus. Man, it has paid the price. And, you know, it actually talks about this in Titus 2:14, that “Jesus gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify to Himself a peculiar people that are zealous of good works.” Man, when the blood changes you, it changes the desire. You know, you begin to live from your born-again spirit. You know, I sin all I want to. I just don’t want to anymore. It just changes that focus, right, and it’s not like I’m living to please the flesh. I’m not living to please the world. I’m not living to please that.


  Yeah, the blood of Jesus purges your conscience. You know, your conscience is part of your soul, your mind, your will, your emotions, your desires.




  See, even the blood of Jesus can change your desires, where you might have had desires that weren’t really great before coming to Jesus, but the blood of Jesus will actually change your desires. You’ll actually want to live for God.


  Amen, and it says it makes us there. In Titus two, you can read about this, Titus 2:11-14, 15, but He makes us zealous for good works. We wanna do the right thing.


  And the grace of God, it actually says in Titus, will actually teach us.


  Teach us how to live, live in this world.


  Live right in a wrong world.


  “The grace of God has appeared to all men, teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lust and live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.”


  Hallelujah, so-


  So the grace of God won’t cause you to want to live like the world. It’ll actually cause you to want to live.


  If you still just wanna live like the devil and live like the world, maybe you need to get born again.


  I think there’s some people that claim to be saved, but they’ve never truly been born again, and we need to be born again, praise God. Now, if we go to Galatians chapter four, it talks again about redemption, in Galatians chapter four, verse, and Aaron, you got some great revelation, so I’ll have you read these verses in Galatians chapter four, probably starting in about verse three to verse seven. Read those verses.


  So it says here, “Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world, but when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, ‘Abba, Father!’ Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”


  I like that there. You know, there’s a purpose to our redemption, and verse five says, “Jesus came to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” I actually really love that word adoption. You know, there are no accidental adoptions.


  You know, you know, sometimes, there’s an accidental, you know, conception and accidental birth, but there are no accidental adoptions. You know, if you’re gonna adopt someone, it’s very purposeful. You know, I married my wife, we’ve been married four years now, but she was married before me. Her husband of seven years passed away. So she moved here to Colorado to start a new chapter of life. We met here at church, and when I met Heather, I also met her son, Fisher, who was four years old at the time, but when I married Heather, I knew that I was gonna be a father. I was gonna have a son, so I wasn’t just, we didn’t have an accidental child. Our son, Fisher, I knew that I was purposing to be a father as well.


  So, you know, I adopted him into my family with Heather. I became a father when I married Heather. And God, you know, there are no accidental adoptions. And I love this too, just speaking about what happened when Jesus redeemed us, that it said that God actually put His Spirit into our heart, crying out, “Abba, Father!” So we have a spirit that knows that we have a Father. We don’t have an orphaned spirit.


  Amen, you know people, when they have an orphaned spirit, and Greg Moore has a great teaching. I gotta get it, but I heard him teach it one time, and people act bad when they an orphaned spirit because they really aren’t secure in the love of God, and you need to get secure in the love of God. You know, the Bible says in Romans eight, I think it’s about verse 16, that He placed His Spirit in our heart, crying, “Abba, Father! Daddy, God!” And, you know, but there’s so many people that really don’t understand they’re God’s child. And He loves us, and He accepts us, and that changes your life when you begin to understand that. So He says, you know, we are redeemed, “That we might receive the adoption of sons,” and I like, Aaron, that you brought out that we’re doubly secure in our citizenship, that we’ve been not only born into the family of God, but we’ve been bought into the family of God, and that’s what we’re talking today about, that we have been bought by the blood of Jesus. And it’s the blood of Jesus, really, that made a way for the Spirit of God to work in our life, and we’re gonna be talking tomorrow and the next day about the power of redemption. We talked all last week about promises of redemption that God has already made, and then we’re talking the first three programs this week, and this is the third one, about the price has already been paid. There is nothing more that Jesus needs to do, that God needs to promise. God has made promises, and Jesus has paid for us to have ’em, but what we need to do is we need to believe it and then let the Holy Spirit work in our life.


  ‘Cause it’s the power of the Holy Spirit that works these promises, amen, that Jesus paid for in our life. And so he says, “To redeem them, that we might receive the adoption of sons, and because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit into your heart, crying, “Daddy, God!” If you’re a child of God, you need to know that you’re a child of God, and the Spirit of God cries out in you, “Daddy, God!” Amen. God is my Father, and I know He loves me. Isn’t that good? And as we go on down, he says, “Wherefore,” he says, “you are no more a servant, but a son,” and then he says, “If a son, then a heir of God through Christ.” Man, I intend to put your son, Fisher, in my will just as much as any other child, you know, that’s been born into our family, praise God, because he’s an inheritor, praise God. And, you know, God put us in His will, and I like that you’ve brought out that we are co-heirs, that we are joint heirs together with Christ. And so praise God for the blood of Jesus that has purchased us, and we’re not under this old law system. We’re under a grace system. Praise God, it’s no longer about our performance, it’s about the performance of Jesus. But when you’d know that, and the Spirit of God comes to live on the inside of you, and we need to know who we are and what we have. Now, I have a couple of more Scriptures. Let’s go to 1 Peter 1, and let’s read in verse 18 and verse 19. Aaron, if you wanna turn to 1 Peter 1, and we’ll read verse 18 and verse 19.


  So it says here, “Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things like silver or gold from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot.”


  Man, we haven’t been redeemed with silver and gold.


  It couldn’t. You know, a Psalm, I think it’s 49, talks about this, that there is nobody that can make atonement for the soul. Only the blood of Jesus can do that. And so he says, “You’re not redeemed with corruptible things from your vain behavior.” That word conversation is an old English word, and it’s talking about lifestyle or behavior. Citizens of certain countries behave in certain ways. It’s their culture. Well, we have the culture of heaven in us as believers. We are citizens of heaven on loan to the earth from God, and so we live differently. And he says, “We receive that by tradition.” Man, I received some bad traditions from my father on the earth. Now, I know that he was a child of God, but he just hadn’t renewed his mind in a lotta areas, but thank God, I’ve been redeemed. I’ve been purchased outta that. I’m not living that way anymore. I’ve renewed my mind to who God says that I am. And he says here, “We have been redeemed with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot.” Man, what price did Jesus pay? What price did the Father pay for us? He paid the ultimate price. He paid with the blood, the life of His own Son. Jesus gave His, shed His blood, gave His life for us, died for us, took our sins.


  One thing about just the currency of heaven.




  That’s just a, kind of a concept, a word that I’m hearing right now, the currency of heaven, you know. Here on Earth, currencies can fluctuate. You know, sometimes people say, “You need to buy, you know, cryptocurrency,” but cryptocurrency fluctuates very wildly. You know, even currencies of very stable nations can fluctuate. You know, the US dollar can fluctuate. The yen can fluctuate. The euro can fluctuate. But even, so some people might say, “You need to invest in gold,” but gold can fluctuate over time. Silver can fluctuate, but there’s something. There’s one currency that does not fluctuate, and that is the blood of Jesus.




  That is the highest currency ever.


  Hallelujah. And what’s it take to receive the currency of heaven, the payment that Jesus made? What does it take?




  Faith. You gotta believe it to receive it. So Jesus already did all the work. God made promises to you. Jesus paid for you to receive ’em, and all you have to do is believe it. If you have never received Jesus as your personal Lord and personal Savior, I want you to give us a call today. We have prayer ministers that are waiting here to pray for you, to minister to you. Praise God, the blood of Jesus will never lose its power. Some of you be saying, “Well, Pastor, you don’t know what I’ve done.” Yes, I don’t know, and I don’t care. I don’t even wanna know. I’ve known some people that have done some terrible things. They tried to tell me about it. I said, “That’s not who you are. I don’t wanna know about it. I don’t care about it. That’s not who you are. This is what the blood of Jesus made you, and you need to know who God made you to be in Christ. You need to know that the blood has forgiven you, has set you free, has helped you, has healed you, and begin to walk like a child of the Almighty God,” amen. So I appreciate you.
