Daily Devotionals: (November 20th): Redemption by Jesus

daily-devotionalsReading: “The year of my redeemed is come.”—Isaiah 63:4

Yes!—from everlasting, the precise period of redemption was determined, and the appointed time of the vision could not tarry. Every intermediate event ministered to this one glorious era: redemption by Jesus. The church was in Egypt four hundred and thirty years and in Babylon seventy. But we are told in the case of the exodus from Egypt that in “the self-same night” the Lord brought them forth with their armies, and in the deliverance from Babylon they did not outstay the hour of their promised deliverance. So too with Christ: “when the fulness of time was come,” the Son of God came for the redemption of His people.

And observe how graciously Jesus speaks of them. He calls them His redeemed. They were so in the covenant from everlasting, and when the time arrives for calling them by His grace, He claims them as the gift of His Father and the purchase of His blood.

My soul, is this your jubilee year? Are you living as the redeemed of the Lord? If so, plead with your Redeemer for holy renewed visits of His love to you and for the year of redemption to come to all His unawakened children.
