The Bible tells us that those who have been redeemed are:
1/ We are the property of God! Isaiah 43:1But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
1 Cor.6:20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
2/ We are first fruits unto God! Revelation 14:4These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
3/ We are a peculiar people! Tutus 2:14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
1 Peter 2:9But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
4/ We have assurance! Job 19:25For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
Psalm 31:5Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
5/ We are sealed! Ephesians 4:30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. [ to be continued ]
