Redeemed from the Curse of the Law - 3

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; ......
Remember that according to 1 Peter 1:18-20, we've been redeemed from the curse of the law by the blood of Jesus.
We were initially not entitled to the blessings pronounced in the bible to the Israelites, being considered as gentiles or heathen, but when Christ came he removed the middle wall of separation. This meaning that  we who were considered gentiles in the flesh are now equally entitled to the covenant blessings of Abraham.

11.Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh--who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands-- 12.that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13.But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14.For He Himself is our peace, who has made b…

The Pride of Nazareth

Jesus and Nazareth are inseparable. Jesus spent most of his life in Nazareth. The prophets had said, "He shall be called a Nazarene" (Matthew 2:23). History would remember him as Jesus of Nazareth. Even the demons called him that (Luke 4:34). That's why this verse is one of the saddest in the Bible:
And he did not do many mighty works [in Nazareth], because of their unbelief. (Matthew 13:58) It's a great irony that the Pride of Nazareth was rejected by the Nazarenes because of pride.
Can you believe this? Joseph the carpenter's son thinks he's a prophet! Well, we know his family and they're respectable enough people. But I know for a fact that he didn't receive any formal religious education. Where is he getting this teaching of his? Does he really think he's somebody great?

They were deeply offended (Matthew 13:57). Why? Because he was one of them. So if he thought he was superior to them, he had better think again. Jesus knew familiarity breeds th…

Biblical perspective of work for Employees

Employees’ responsibilities The life of Daniel as recorded in the biblical book of Daniel illustrates eight characteristics that made him a good and godly employee. The following are those eight characteristics. Work as if working for the Lord. We actually are serving the Lord in our work; we are not serving people. In essence, we work for the Lord. If employees know and believe this, slothfulness can be greatly diminished. Work hard.“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might” (Ecclesiastes 9:10). In Scripture, hard work and diligence are encouraged; laziness is condemned.“He also who is slack in his work is brother to him who destroys” (Proverbs 18:9).  However, hard work must be balanced by other primary priorities of life: relationship with Christ, spouse, and family. If work interferes with any of these three relationships, you are working too much. Be honest. Employees should not give cause for their employers ever to question or doubt their honesty.Be faithful. God…

What is Righteousness?

What do you think righteousness is about? Something you do or something you are? Right doing or right being?
Some Christians believe that they have to work at becoming more righteous. And they kick themselves when they do wrong. They don't realize that by doing these things, they are not seeking God's righteousness, but are trying to establish their own righteousness by their law-keeping and right conduct.
So, what do you think Righteousness is all about? I going to, with the help of the Holy Spirit dive into the unbound, incorruptible word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever, as we seek to fully understand what Righteousness is all about.

You are Framing Your World

By faith we understand that the worlds/universe were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible- Hebrews 11:3
Reading the above passage of bible scripture takes me back to creation in the book of Genesis when God created the heavens and the earth.

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said , Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good...." - Genesis 1:1-3
The word "LET" literally means to actively cause something to happen. This word calls for some action in order for something to happen.
Throughout the whole chapter of creation God spoke everything into existence. Whenever He spoke things to be, the scripture says He then saw what He had spoken, and He said it was good
This blatantly means that words hav…

Redeemed from the Curse of the Law - 2

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. - Gal 3:13,14
And if you be Christ's, then are you Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. - Gal 3:29
Let's begin off by trying to understand the term Redeemed.
