Redeemed from the curse

  • 0

Galatians 3:13: “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written. Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.”

According to the scripture above, the believer hath been redeemed from the curse: “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles (non- Jews) through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

Let me give you another translation of that: “Christ redeemed us (man) from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. For it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree. He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles (non-Jews) through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit” (NI). It is not of our works, but the Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:14-16, KJV: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba Father.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are children of God.

This is saying that the believer had passed from spiritual death into spiritual life which means God is your Father.

Romans 8:31, KJV: So, What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”

Romans 8:17, KJV: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.”

Any one reading this article and you are not a child of God, do not wait to except Jesus Christ as your Savior because there is no truth in the enemy (the liar) and his followers in the the dark kingdom (John 8:44 KJV). Therefore, I would encourage you to accept Christ as your savior, NOW. This is the new spiritual life that take place immediately. This is the gift of God.

Ephesians 2:8-9, KJV: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Man always want to have a part of what is going on in his life. It is his nature. However, in this new spiritual life, he can't, he must simply admit his helplessness and hopelessness. Then he must come and accept the gift of redemption that Christ bought for him. It doesn't matter how well-educated he has become, how rich he is, mere man cannot stand in the presence of God if he continues to want to be in control.

In Genesis 2:7, KJV: God breathed into the nostrils of man the breath of life; His Life, His Spirit in man became a living soul, which had been reborned and changed and become a new creature in Christ Jesus. It was He who redeemed us from spiritual death.

John 5:26, KJV: For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.
