OUR KINSMAN REDEEMER

1. REDEEM means “BUY BACK”, the one who “RESTORES” is the REDEEMER. God told Adam, “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, THOU SHALT NOT EAT OF IT: for in the day that thou eatest thereof THOU SHALT SURELY DIE” [Genesis 2:17] Though they did not cease to breathe, the decree took effect same day they ate the forbidden thing; through SIN man DIED in cruel BONDAGE to him who wields the power of DEATH, “WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but the GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord” [Romans 6:23] Expectedly, conditions of our REDEMPTION were very stringent; God made the statute and only He could REDEEM us. He did, becoming as us in Jesus Christ that through DEATH He might pay off the WAGES of our SIN, “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, HE ALSO HIMSELF LIKEWISE TOOK PART of the same; that THROUGH DEATH HE MIGHT DESTROY HIM THAT HAD POWER OF DEATH, that is, the DEVIL; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to BONDAGE” [Hebrews 2:14-15] No man by reason of SIN or angel on grounds of incompatibility qualified to be OUR KINSMAN REDEEMER, so God became MAN in Jesus Christ, “For as by ONE MAN’S DISOBEDIENCE many were made SINNERS, so by the OBEDIENCE OF ONE MAN shall many be made RIGHTEOUS” [Romans 5:19]

2. Through SIN we were SOLD to him whose boast is in cruel oppression, “And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life” [Job 2:4] We were as Naomi, miserable and without HOPE in persuading Ruth and Orpah to return home, “… IF I SHOULD SAY, I HAVE HOPE, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons; Would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; …” [Ruth 1:12-13] Orpah went back, but Ruth found HOPE in God who “VISITS” His people to set them at LIBERTY, “… for she had HEARD in the country of Moab how that the LORD HAD VISITED HIS PEOPLE in giving them bread” [Ruth 1:6] Ruth cemented her HOPE in FAITH, leaving everything behind in Moab to abide under the shadow of God, “… I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and THY GOD MY GOD” [Ruth 1:16] God could not resist Ruth’s FAITH; He raised Boaz as KINSMAN REDEEMER to “BUY BACK” her HONOUR, “Moreover RUTH the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, HAVE I PURCHASED TO BE MY WIFE, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, …” [Ruth 4:10] In like manner, Jesus Christ, as KINSMAN REDEEMER “PURCHASED” us with His BLOOD on the Cross, that we should no longer be DISHONOURED by SIN but live in NEWNESS of LIFE, “For ye are BOUGHT WITH A PRICE: therefore GLORIFY GOD IN YOUR BODY, and in your spirit, which are God's” [1 Corinthians 6:20]

3. We are no longer SLAVES to SIN and DEATH but newly created in the LIBERTY of the SON of God, “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD, THERE IS LIBERTY” [2 Corinthians 3:17] His SPIRIT dwells in us and His VOICE like THUNDER reverberates across the globe with the GOSPEL of LIBERTY to those oppressed by SIN and DEATH, irrespective of age, gender, race, or weight of iniquity, saying: “COME UNTO ME, ALL ye that LABOUR and are HEAVY LADEN, and I will GIVE YOU REST” [Matthew 11:28] His REST is in CONFORMITY with His IMAGE, that we should be like Him in all things; He being the FIRSTBORN and we His BRETHREN, “For whom he did FOREKNOW, he also did PREDESTINATE to be CONFORMED to the IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN” [Romans 8:29] FOREKNOWLEDGE of God is not “DESTINY” but God knowing ahead who will accept the offer of KINSMAN REDEEMER. And concerning “PREDESTINATION”, God PROMISED us ETERNAL LIFE that we should be SONS to Him in CONFORMITY with Jesus Christ, “And this is the PROMISE that he hath PROMISED, EVEN ETERNAL LIFE. These things have I WRITTEN unto YOU concerning them that SEDUCE YOU” [1John 2:25-26] I must, however, warn you of other VOICES who SEDUCE you with earthly things, promising LIBERTY of things of which themselves are polluted and in bondage “While they PROMISE THEM LIBERTY, they themselves are the SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage” [2 Peter 2:19]

4. Here is the TRUTH, God became our KINSMAN REDEEMER in Jesus Christ that we may become as Him, “Beloved, now are we the SONS OF GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he is” [1 John 3:2] His “APPEARANCE” as stated in the above verse is imminent when we shall be ushered into the inheritance prepared for those who CONFORM to His IMAGE, “… Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD HATH PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM” [1 Corinthians 2:9] Are we BORN AGAIN, let us be steadfast in FAITH; WATCHING and PRAYING to remain spotless until that glorious DAY, “LOOKING DILIGENTLY LEST ANY MAN FAIL OF THE GRACE of God; lest any ROOT OF BITTERNESS springing up trouble you, and thereby MANY BE DEFILED” [Hebrews 12:15] Friend, If you have not received Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, the VOICE of your KINSMAN REDEEMER is calling you, “MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, and I know them, and they follow me: And I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” [Joh 10:27-28]
