“Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.” Job 33:24.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Jesus paid the ransom for all. And that includes you and every person from the beginning to the end of time who will receive My gift of Jesus, Yeshuah, Salvation, your ransom.
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all. 1 Timothy 2:5-6.
I was in Christ reconciling you to Myself but He ransomed you as man. As one like you in all things but sin. Your kinsman redeemer. He gave His life in the flesh to pay for the sins you had done.
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1-4.
Just as the first man, Adam, had eternal life in his mortal fleshly body so did Jesus. You need to understand this. He had an indestructible life. I created Adam from My incorruptible, imperishable Word in which there is no sin. It is pure. It is eternal. Eternal life is in My Words. John 12:50.
Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.” John 6:68.
But Adam sinned by submitting to words contrary to Mine. He was born again by corruptible perishable seed. Lies are not eternal, only truth is. And by receiving the words of the devil as authority in place of Mine, he was born from life to death. The wages of sin is death. A double death. Spirit and flesh. And it demands justice. Jesus came to undo what the devil had done and return you to My jurisdiction if you will accept again My Word of truth in place of the devil’s lies.
For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls off, but the Word of the Lord endures forever.” 1 Peter 1:23-25.
But there is MUCH MORE to this. It is the law of the blood. But first consider the following.
Think of someone owing a huge judgment, say a few million dollars, because they took money by fraudulent means from the state government, thus it is a criminal judgement that must be paid in full or the defendant will be put in prison. Say you know this person, in fact, the person is a colleague of yours, you want to pay it for them so they can be free. If you had a billion dollars, you could easily do it without much sacrifice at all. You might even do it if you had not much over the amount due knowing money is expendable but can always be earned again. But how much you would give depends on your relationship with the person for it would make a difference if they were your child. And you would be happy to do it so they could be free.
Would you not love to have the funds to go about doing good and freeing all those oppressed and burdened with debts owed?
But let us say you offered and they refused to let you pay because they wanted to do it themselves and thought they could eventually do it if they worked really hard. Or let us say you paid it in full and they still kept crying over it and saying they just did not feel that it was paid, they felt like it was still hanging over them and they could not be happy, and they kept trying to pay the judgment though it was satisfied in full. Or if they just passed it off nonchalantly and did it again at the next opportunity thinking you would cover for them again?
None of these responses would make you glad you had paid it and none of them would be showing you honor for what you had done, for the sacrifice you had made to give them freedom and joy.
What would please you the most is if they shouted for joy that you had paid it, could not stop rejoicing over it every day of their life from then on, knowing they were released from the crime and walking free by the ransom you paid, and wanting never again to repeat that behavior in gratitude and honor for their freedom and justification by your sacrifice. And what if you assured them that if they fell again through weakness, you had already taken care of it and not to worry about it for it was well provided for? That would be joy unspeakable filled with glory.
What I want you to know is that you have more than this. MUCH MORE. The silver and the gold are Mine, Haggai 2:8, and the cattle on a thousand hills, Psalm 50:10, and I could easily expend these things with no sacrifice on My part for every time I give these things there is more produced and reproduced.
But you owed Me the debt of the eternal life that I entrusted to mankind that your forefather murdered within himself by sin, the only ransom that would pay off your debt and release you from the sin that brought death to Adam and all his descendants through the corruption he caused to the imperishable seed by which I had formed him could only be paid to Me in one way. An eternal life for an eternal life.
But if a serious injury results, then you must require a life for a life—eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, and stripe for stripe. Exodus 2123-24.
And the life is in the blood. So eternal blood had to be shed for the eternal life lost. And that is why Jesus had to take flesh in the womb of the virgen Mary. The blood is from the father, and neither Adam’s blood nor any one born of his seed had pure eternal blood. Only Jesus, He was formed of My Word.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement.’ Leviticus 17:11.
But none of you, as descendants in the flesh of Adam, had an eternal life to offer to ransom you from that sentence.
No man can by any means redeem his brother or give to God a ransom for him— for the redemption of his soul is costly, and he should cease trying forever—that he should live on eternally, that he should not see corruption or the pit. Psalm 49:7-9.
And He saw that there was no man, and was astonished that there was no one to intercede; then His own arm brought salvation to Him, and His righteousness upheld Him. Isaiah 59:16.
You were dead and stuck in your sins, without Me and without hope in the world.
You were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace. Ephesians 2:12-14.
But I had a plan since the foundation of the world to ransom you back to Myself and do it completely legally and justly. For righteousness and justice are the foundation of My throne; but lovingkindness and truth and faithfulness go before Me. Psalm 89:14. I do everything justly and legally, but equal to My majesty is the mercy I bestow.
You were not ransomed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ. For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. 1 Peter 1:18-21.
The whole world was built on the foundation of the ransom by the blood of the lamb.
I gave you Jesus because of My great mercy, but He died for you because of My justice. You are not released from your sins by a whim of My favor that is for some but not others. It was won legally, justly, and is for ALL. He died once for ALL. But like any gift or payment made on your behalf, you must receive the benefit to make it yours.
But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:15-17.
Paying money would have been easy for Me, as I said, all silver and gold are Mine, but I had to redeem you by paying your judgement with an eternal life, I had to give something that cost Me everything, a gift so unique that NOTHING would replace that gift, in order to give you everything I had to give you My everything, My only begotten Son who through Him and for Him I had made everything that I have made. The only Son. My Word. And He is God but He became man for you. And He had to empty Himself of His powers as God and come in the flesh, in water and blood, to ransom, redeem and sanctify you so that you can come holy and blameless before Me without reproach. Why? I have found a ransom. He did it as Man but He also had to do it as God to make it an eternal redemption that was once for all and would not have to be repeated every time there was sin, like the sacrifices of the Old Testament that were only a shadow of the eternal sacrifice that was to come.
“The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45.
I have redeemed you, not for any good deeds you have done, but by the blood of My Son.
“I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud and your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.” Isaiah 44:22.
You drew near when I called on You; You said, “Do not fear!” O Lord (Adonai), You have pleaded my soul’s cause; You have redeemed my life. Lamentations 3:57-58.
Jesus is not only your redeemer but also your advocate in the court of Heaven to enforce that redemption, to save you to the uttermost. His blood continues to speak to Me of your ransom. If you walk in My light His blood continually cleanses you.
Each day if you fail or fall from the weakness of your flesh, for your spirit is willing but your flesh is weak, you have a priceless treasure, YOU HAVE A RANSOM. You have been bought at a great price, so glorify Me in your body. I paid for your sin and made you pure. I have found a ransom and in His great love for Me and you, He voluntarily took this assignment and accepted all sin into his eternal earthly flesh so that He had to die, for the wages of sin is death. He died in the flesh but I raised Him to newness of life in the Spirit, the first born again of many brethren. The first fruits of those who believe.
After saying above, “Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have not desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the Law), then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will.” He takes away the first in order to establish the second. By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:7-9.
Then I said, “Behold, I come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me. I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8-9.
You now can have confidence to enter My holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for all through the veil, that is, His flesh, and it is wide open to you.
Jesus gave you all. He gave you His Body and He gave you His Blood, He gave His life for you so you could live free with joy. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. He freed you from condemnation. He tasted the dust of death for you and your sentence of eternal death has been paid in full and turned the justification to eternal life.
Are you grateful? Are you bubbling with joy over your freedom from sin? Or are you still begging Me to forgive you? Are you walking around self-condemned? Are you under a cloud of guilt and shame? Why would you do that to yourself and dishonor Me in this way when I sacrificed My Son to give you salvation?
You are not being humble but proud if you think you have to satisfy My justice with your own penances and performance to take away your sins. The more you beg Me to forgive you even though you have confessed your sin to Me and let Me know of sincere sorrow or having acted thus, the further you condemn yourself and agree with the devil. Same with illness. Honor Me by believing My Word and enjoying each other.
I honor those who honor Me. How do you honor Me? By applying the blood of Jesus with shouts of joy, love, and gratitude loving, enjoying, praising, receiving, and rejoicing in all I have freely given you in Christ.
Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood—and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. Revelation 1:5-6.
I have honored you with the best and paid off all you owed so you are free. My Son paid your ticket into My banquet. Will you not honor Me by appreciating My gift, enjoying your freedom from sin, guilt, and shame, rejoicing in so great a salvation, and praising all I have given you in Christ by making use of it? It gave Me joy to ransom you. It gave My Son joy to do it too. Receive that with joy too.
I love you. Enjoy that you have found a ransom. And not with perishable things like silver and gold but with the blood of a spotless lamb. “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the of the world.”
Then let Him be gracious to him, and say, ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom’; Let his flesh become fresher than in youth, let him return to the days of his youthful vigor. Then he will pray to God, and He will accept him, that he may see His face with joy, and He may restore His righteousness to man. “He will sing to men and say, ‘I have sinned and perverted what is right, and it is not proper for me. He has redeemed my soul from going to the pit, and my life shall see the light.’ “Behold, God does all these oftentimes with men, to bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of life. Job 33:24-30.
