March 26: Passover

– I Will Redeem You

Exodus 6:6c 

“I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.”

The Hebrew word used in this promise reflects more than just physical freedom; eventually it denotes a spiritual freedom.  The word גאל [ga’al] is the action of the closest relative who pays a ransom for the one in bondage. 

Although it’s hard for us to understand in modern terms, the Bible says that God “paid” a ransom for Israel; He was and remains Israel’s Kinsman Redeemer.

The good news is that God has already “paid” a ransom to redeem everyone who is in spiritual bondage and, because of sin is separated from His love and eternal life.  The ransom price was the precious blood of Yeshua.

Luke 1:68

“Blessed is the Lord God of Israel,

For He has visited and redeemed His people.”

1 Peter 1:18a-19

…knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, … but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.

 

PRAY ISRAEL AND ALL NATIONS WILL RECOGNIZE YESHUA OUR KINSMAN REDEEMER.

Choosing and embracing Yeshua.
