The victory of redemption
Text: Revelation 5:9-10
Obviously, redemption has won the victory for man. Our Saviour, Jesus Christ, fought fiercely, won the battle and got the everlasting victory for man. This, he did by placing a crown of victory on those who embraced redemption. It is redemption that made a day like this possible; where heirs of salvation are gathered to worship God in a unique way.
Because of his love for mankind, Jesus embarked on a rough and rugged journey for man’s salvation. As recorded in the book of Revelation, no man on earth and in heaven was found worthy to take the book and open the seals that would eventually brought redemption to man. It was a solemn moment filled with despondency and desperation in heaven because if no man was found worthy, the eternal damnation of man would forever be sealed.
However, Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah, the Root of David, was found worthy to take the book and open the seals thereof. He finally prevailed and secured salvation for man!
This act of Jesus, brought redemption to man and wiped off the impending judgment hanging on man. This presupposes that the blood Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary, is not in vain. We, as Kingdom Citizens, are here in our royalty to celebrate the victory of redemption. Redemption begat holiness and holiness does not suggest poverty, but royalty.
Devil can offer man anything he desires in an exchange for holiness. He knows what he will suffer if man lives in holiness. He goes to Bible Schools to confuse them that attainment of holiness is not possible. This is why they fight and kick against holiness with all vigour when they graduate from the school.
The celebration, today, is unique and it is for born again Christians. The clothes we put on are symbolic: the sky blue, signifies royalty while the white shirt and tie, symbolise purity. Those who put on the clothes, but are not born again are not part of the celebration. Today is a golden opportunity for those who are not redeemed to come to the Calvary for salvation and cleansing. The business for those that put on the royalty clothes is to destroy sin around their corners.
Redemption has conferred on us the right to preach salvation and promote holiness. Holiness is to be nurtured and preserved by the priests of the Lord. The priests, as represented here, are those who are redeemed by the Lord. Shut not your ears to the cry of sinners; recover all territories left in the hands of the devil. Never allow them establish their presence on earth again. The Devil has no new methods; he recycles his methods. So, be on guard not to fall into his traps.
This is a day of victory worthy of celebration because Jesus has won and has given us victory. We must use our authority to sustain this victory.
