No life, No Relationship
“The wiind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. John 3:8
After rebirth, we become spiritually alive. We live and not die, never die, but have
Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. John 11:25
The Blood answers to all of Satan’s accusations because we have been redeemed by the Blood. The word redemption in the Hebrew means “to release on receipt of by paying a ransom price, to redeem, to deliver and in the Gree,k it means, “a loosening particularly by paying a price.”
Redemption is the special intervention of God for the salvation of man. He provided the Blood of His Son Jesus Christ for the penalty of sin and moreover, purchased our freedom from the dominion of sin. Therefore there has been a price paid for each and every believer to operate in the freedom and liberty Christ provided for in His own Blood and are no longer subject to the kingdom of darkness: sin, guilt, and death.Christ redeemed us 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” (Gal 3:13 NIV).
Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Co 5:18-21
submitting to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, is the way to salvation and stands in opposition to legal justification. However, the Gospel and the law are forever connected, and to destroy one is to destroy the other. Jesus Christ became our High Priest and mediator. The hearts that had been hardened because of sin and abominations would now be soft and pliable in the hands of God. Man fell away and their minds were darkened and they were destined to live a life alienated from God, but God Himself reconciled the unbelieving, through belief in Jesus Christ, therefore bridging the gap that once stood to separate sinful man from a Holy God. Believers, under the New Covenant, have freedom and liberty through repentance of sin, as they are restored to wholeness. Where there had been death because of sin, the Blood of Jesus Christ flows through His Body, the Church, and washes it clean. Death and darkness are replaced with light and life. It is in the flow of that Blood where the power for deliverance and restoration is found. Dead works and seared consciences are restored. What was once routine and ritual, is replaced with reconciliation and relationship.
For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:3-7 NKJV
