Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Redeemed from death”
Text: Numbers 3:13
“because all the firstborn are Mine. On the day that I struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, I sanctified to Myself all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast. They shall be Mine: I am the LORD.”
The Wonder of being Redeemed from death,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
When the angel of death was sent to kill all the first born of Egypt the angel “passed over” the houses of Israel and did not kill the first born of Israel because the angel saw the blood of an innocent lamb. The first born of Israel had been Redeemed from death” by an innocent lamb.
This was a picture of God’s righteous judgement for sin, and also the gift of redemption from death by an innocent lamb. The Bible says:
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”(Rom.6:23).
The first born of Israel were saved by the death of a perfect lamb, but you and I were Redeemed from death by the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world; the First Born from the dead, the First Born over all creation, and the First Born from the dead. (John 1:29; Col.1:15, 18).
By our Faith and Trust in Jesus Christ we have joined “the general assembly and Church of The First Born and our names are registered in heaven!”
“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect“ (Heb.12:22-23)
Oh Hallelujah! Doesn’t this fact make you want to Love Jesus more and praise and worship Him more, and tell everyone about His wonderful love MORE?
Because He Lives Forever we too will live forever with Him!
Because of Jesus Christ we are Redeemed from death! Ooooh Rah!
