And He Will Redeem Israel

In Psalm 130,  the psalmist humbly  and fervently prays  for the LORD  to hear him.     He fully realized  his sinful nature,  but knew  that the LORD  is forgiving  and has the power  to actually forgive  for all eternity.     So,  he patiently waited  for the LORD,  and trusted God.     In Psalm 130:7-8  he explains why  he assuredly trusted God.     He said,

O Israel,  hope  in the LORD;
For with the LORD  there is lovingkindness,
And with Him  is abundant redemption.      

And He will  redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

Old  and New Testament references  point all believers  to the knowledge  that God’s promises  truly include them,  along with all the Israelites,  who trust  in God.     Therefore,  He will redeem Israel  from all his iniquities”  is not just  for the Israelites  —  but for every believer  down through the ages  —  Old Testament  and New Testament believers.     We are all children  of God.

God has promised  to  “redeem”  us all  “from all”  our  “iniquities”.     For those  who believe Jesus,  not one single sin  will be left unforgiven.

Knowing that truth,   Jesus’ disciples  and the early church preachers preached  the gospel  to everyone.     God’s word  is the same for all,  because  “God so loved the world”.   ( John 3:16 )

This is the reason  for celebrating the birth  of Christ.     Our joy  should be  in the fact  that Jesus redeems  everyone  who trusts  in Him  “from all his iniquities”.

So Christmas  is not a time  for rejoicing  in Santa,  pretty decorations,  cheerful music,  presents,  parties,  etc.     Christmas is a time  to celebrate the coming  of our Savior,  who  “will redeem Israel  from all his iniquities”.

Keeping Christ  in our hearts,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  thank You  for humbling Yourself  to come down  to earth  to pay for our sins.”

Love,
Margaret
