Perfect Redemption (Ephesians 1:7)

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Ephesians 1:7 (KJV)

In Christ we have been forgiven of past, present and future sins. Regardless of where we may have fallen short or what our past may have looked like, the riches of His grace are more than sufficient to cleanse us from it all. Knowing our perfect redemption empowers us to live right and overcome in every arena of life!

  1. Hey Alex, good mornin to you.
    I posted a post this mornin, and I didn’t think about our previous discussion until after I posted my post this mornin.
    (And it just now occurred to me, so that’s why I’m mentioning this now).

    This mornin I posted some verses that speak to the Christian’s hardships in life.

    You and I are on the same page as far as new covenant grace and resting in the finished work of Christ.

    But health and wealth in the Christian’s life is definitely a false teaching. In fact, it is a deceptive lure of Satan to tell the Christian that God wants all Christians to be healthy and wealthy.

    So I appeal to you to please restructure your message.

    In kindness,
    Lee

    1. Hi Lee,

      I see far too many scriptures on healing and provision (old and new testament) to doubt that is God’s will for us to be healthy and to have our needs be met. Yet the key is faith. Everything Grace made available, we must now lay hold of by faith. God said that all of His promises are yes and amen in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 1:20), He says He has provided everything necessary for our life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3), and that with His stripes we ARE healed (1 Peter 2:24). There are so many more scriptures that talk about healing and our needs being supplied. Proverbs even says that the wealth of the sinner is to be laid up for the just. It would only be right for a just God to want the just to prosper.

      Sickness and poverty are of the devil and I’m sure he would love to have Believers just submit to them. Yet they came into the world with sin and do not come from God. The Bible says Jesus bore our sicknesses just as much as He bore our sins. I think we should believe God for healing and provision no matter what it seems like in the natural. We serve a supernatural God!

      By the way, I believe there is no such thing as “worldly prosperity,” even if it appears that way. It is impossible for a person to truly prosper without God.

      Brother, you may not agree, and that is perfectly fine. I believe this is what the Word teaches.

      Blessings,

      Alex
