Isa:44:6 – The words of Yahweh, Israel’s true King and Kinsman-Redeemer, Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies, says: “I am the Beginning and I am the Ending, and I am the only God there is”.
Things can get quite cloudy or confusing if you get your eyes on this present world and get caught up in this present system that is trying to swallow up every semblance of the Kingdom of God. Obviously the spirit of antichrist has been unleashed in this generation attempting to distract and discourage the children of light. In the midst of the noise there is one thing that helps get me back on track; remember that the Creator Himself has become a man and is my Redeemer. The concept of Kinsman Redeemer in the Hebrew world was a glimpse into the person of Jesus of Nazareth. To say it bluntly, God became a man to redeem us from the misery of this life. Here is a thought about the Kinsman Redeemer from the Passion Notes.
“Favor and mercy always triumph over judgment. God will excel in grace toward his people and give them back even more than what sins spoiled and Satan stole. There is coming a day when Lord Yahweh will wield his massive, mighty sword and take up our cause, slaying the serpent of confusion and working a mighty work of vindication from enemies and redemption from sins in the lives of his people. He is our Kinsman-Redeemer, the Mighty One who unveils to us his cherishing love like a relative coming to the aid of his next-of-kin in trouble to redeem and rescue them. He loves us so much that he took upon this role of family protector, becoming the sacrifice to rescue us from danger and return us to God.”
That’s the way it is with the Lord, it often appears that the Lord’s people are losing and the kingdom of this world is taking complete control. Nothing could be further from the truth. The devil is the master of fake news and nothing he says will ultimately come about. The Lord Himself has redeemed us from our sins and ultimately the misery that sin hangs around our neck. Rather than abandoned we are remembered. Rather than defeated we are more than conquerors. Rather than losing ground the kingdom of God is advancing in our society.
