It’s By His Spirit


Let us rejoice and be glad, the Lord is good and His mercies endure forever. The Lord has Redeemed a chosen generation of people, both Jews and Gentiles from the hands of the enemy.

Israel was expecting mighty chariots, a great prince and a man of war to redeem them from the hands of their enemies. Of- course, Christ was all these things and much more…(Zechariah 4:6).

Gold and silver can buy many things, but it cannot purchase eternal life ( Isaiah 45:13).

Christ Our Salvation

The Lord’s last prayer with the disciples: John 17:1-5

Christ became perfect for us. With the price of His blood, He purchased salvation.

“Having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation.”(Hebrews 5:9).

Christ is the source of Eternal Life. He is our justification, sanctification and glorification in the world to come. True Believers have Christ’s righteous imputed to them. They glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

Those who know God, know the glory of the Living God; The Son of Glory. These are the chosen ones who believe, love God and obey Him.

Peace With God

Peace With God

By Faith in Christ, you are justified and have the privilege of being at peace with God. Peace is part of what Christ purchased for you when He gave His life as a Living Sacrifice.

We must remember it was Sin that separated us from God. Once that sin was taken away, the relationship between God and man was restored. Those who have faith in Christ are no longer strangers, but loved sons who have a relationship with the Father.

By Faith, we receive the promises of God, which includes PEACE. The cleansing power of the Blood of the Lamb has purchased “Peace with God” for all who believe in Christ.

Nothing but the Blood of Jesus.

Nothing but the Blood of Jesus.

“What can wash away your sin or make you whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.”

Robert Lowry, a Baptist preacher, hymn writer and composer used these words to express the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus. Other classical hymn writers like William Cowper, Augustus Toplady and Charles Wesley have written timeless songs about the power in the blood. More recent gospel song writers like Andrea Crouch, Shirley Ceaser, Vicki Yohe and Matt Redman, just to name a few…, have also written powerful songs about the Blood.

The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power.

The work of The Blood of Jesus is continuous. There is Redemptive power in the Blood. It liberates from bondage, guilt and sin. It was absolutely necessary for the Blood of Jesus to be shed. Without the shedding of Blood there is no remission of sin. By one Sacrifice, the ransom price was paid , once and for all. Those who are sanctified, are made perfect because God’s forgiveness is complete. Blessed assurance, Heaven is the destination of those who have Faith in Christ. Rejoice in the riches of God’s grace; the expression of God’s amazing Love.

God’s Promises are Eternal


Christ is the Mediator of the New Covenant. His priesthood outstripped the Levitical priesthood of the Old Covenant, in its service and administration.

Christ is the only mediator between God, who is holy, and man, who is sinful.

Christ’s Work is Superior.

Christ’s death had the power to remove the sin, that separated us from God. Christ provided a better covenant, in that it had the power to purify the conscience, it had the power to remove sin. His work had justifying and sanctifying power.

Called to Heavenly Canaan.

Those who are called have an eternal inheritance. People are made right with God when they believe in Jesus Christ: The spotless Lamb who sacrificed His life; The Messiah who shed his blood.

What about the Old Testament saints? How were they saved? They were saved on the basis of what Christ would accomplish. They believed in what God had promised. They were justified by their faith in the “unseen” promises of God. Christ was the promised seed… and all who believe in Him, whether Old or New, are inheritors of all He has promised. By His own blood, He purchased the promise of eternal salvation and eternal redemption.

Thanksgiving with Joy

The Divine Work of Redemption

There is always a reason to give thanks to God. Those in Christ have a share in a glorious inheritance. These are a chosen generation of people who have been brought out of darkness, into the glorious light of the Gospel.

With joyous thanksgiving, Believers all over the world must rejoice with exceeding gladness. They have been consecrated by Christ, who paid the ultimate price to redeem and bring them into a new way of Living.

Saints must rejoice at all times knowing they have been emancipated from the curse, the penalty has been paid in full. Christ has redeemed them from the curse of the Law. They are blood washed and forgiven, having their sins completely removed. This is a rich privilege, bestowed by grace, upon all those who trust and believe in Jesus Christ.

An Incorruptible Inheritance

An Incorruptible Inheritance

A great inheritance is kept in Heaven for Believers in Christ. From the foundations of this earth, a chosen generation, a people foreknown, a people set apart, have been given an incorruptible inheritance, which can never fade or perish.

Redeemed by the Blood

The Son of God gave himself up, paying a price to redeem souls with his own life. He was that perfect sacrifice, a spotless lamb, without blemish, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

The incorruptible promises of God still stand today. Christ became a substitute and He did it out of Love. He has brought those, chosen by grace, into a new way of life, not by silver and gold, but through His own blood.

A Priest Like Melchisadec

Saved from the Power of Sin

Christ was unlike other priests, His priesthood was immutable, excellent, effective and eternal; a priest, after the order of Melchisadec. He had the power to save from the power of sin.

Christ’s death was eternally effectual. He died once and for all, paying the penalty and declaring us righteous.

Christ was completely righteous, carrying our unrighteousness upon his shoulders. He gives spiritual and eternal life to those who believe in Him.

An Accomplished Work

An Accomplished Work

The Levitical system was a legal system of repeated ceremonies. These sacrifices were incomplete because they could not cleanse the sins of the people, it only covered them. Their sin and the guilt remained, hence the never ending routine to cover the continuous sins of the people.

Christ accomplished the work of Redemption in one single sacrifice. He presented His body as that, once and for all, Living Sacrifice.

The supremacy of Christ is displayed in this wonderful work of Redemption. Glorify His name forever.

I’d rather have Jesus…

Saved by Grace

The Law: moral and ceremonial, was given to Moses by God, however, none of these Laws had the power to justify ( Romans 3:28). These yearly repeated sacrifices offered by the Levitical priests, could never cleanse and take away the sins of the people.

The Fulfilment of the Law

Grace and Truth would come through Jesus Christ, the fulfilment of the Law. Christ is the fountain of Grace and Truth. He alone can pardon and forgive sin: Christ is the giver and author of Salvation, the only One who can save a soul.

All favour in this life comes from Christ. He is the strength of His people. He pours out grace in abundance, enabling those who trust Him, to walk in obedience. Amen
