Redeemed Incorruptible
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
The highest rewards for man’s toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it.  How lovely it is to be nothing when GOD is all! 

 

REDEEMED, INCORRUPTIBLE        
"For thus says the LORD You have sold yourselves for no price, and shall be redeemed without money." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 52. 3 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

 

What a glorious promise, though we sold ourselves to the slavery of sin, the LORD Y’SHUA paid the price to redeem us back to HIMSELF.  Therefore, we should "conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." [1 Peter 1. 17 – 19] 

 

There is not enough wealth or riches in this world that could redeem even one single soul, for gold and silver are corruptible elements in a world under "the bondage of corruption." [Romans 8. 21]   For everything in the physical creation is decaying and dying.  In fact, one day all these "elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up." [2 Peter 3. 10]  Yes, the LORD has warned that in HIS fierce anger, "all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of MY jealousy." [Zephaniah (Tsefanyah) 3. 8 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  

 

Furthermore, the seeds which transmit life are "corruptible seed" [1 Peter 1. 23], and all mankind is "corruptible man." [Romans 1. 23] Everywhere and everything in this universal falls under the principle of decay as one of its most basic laws — the law of increasing turmoil and instability. . . but GOD is still in complete control. 

 

However, in spite of the chaos and distortion in this corrupt world, some things are incorruptible. The greatest of these definitely being the  "incorruptible...WORD OF GOD which lives and abides forever." [1 Peter 1. 23]  Though "heaven and earth will pass away, but MY WORDS will by no means pass away." [Matthew 24. 35]  "The WORD of our GOD stands forever." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 40. 8]   "The LORD...will exalt HIS law and make it honorable." [Isaiah/Yeshayah) 42. 21], for HE has magnified HIS WORD above HIS NAME. [Psalms/Tehillym 138. 2]  HIS NAME and promises are above all things. 

 

We are redeemed, not by silver and gold, "but with the precious blood of MESSIAH, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." [1 Peter 1. 19]  The LORD GOD HIMSELF is the glorious " incorruptible GOD" [Romans 2. 23], and HE has "begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away." [1 Peter 1. 3 – 4]  We work, not as others, "to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown." [1 Corinthians 9. 25 ] 

 

At last, our dying bodies will finally be redeemed, "we shall all be changed — in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality." [1 Corinthians 15. 51b – 53] 

 

We are opulently, pensively, marvelously redeemed by the most precious blood of the LAMB, the KING OF GLORY. . . how I love to proclaim it.
 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Bidding farewell to Sabbath…LORD our GOD, great, eternal, wonderful in glory, WHO keeps covenant and promises for those that love YOU with their whole heart, WHO is the LIFE of all, the HELP of those that flee to YOU, the HOPE of those who cry to YOU, cleanse us from our sins, secret and open, and from every thought displeasing to YOUR goodness — cleanse our bodies and souls, our hearts and consciences, that with a pure heart, and a clear soul, with perfect love and calm hope, we may venture confidently and fearlessly to pray to YOU.  We thank YOU and in the MAGNIFICENT NAME of Y’SHUA we pray, Amen! Have an extra special week in the MASTER’S presence.
Day 28 of the Omer 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
