Come Meet my Kinsman Redeemer

Exodus 13:13

“And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck: and all the firstborn of man among thy children shalt thou redeem.”

King James Version (KJV)



Galatians
Chapter 4

1Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

2But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

3Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

5To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.


Greetings to all:


I invite you to come and meet my Kinsman Redeemer


In the spirit of God’s love and by His grace this story burns in my soul to share.

Come listen whether you be a scholar or unschooled. Though you are of the Baha'i faith or Christian or Catholic. Although you would be a Jewish Rabbi, a devoted Hindu, perhaps a Sikh or maybe you come from a lineage devoted to Islam or you are a Buddhist monk. You say you are an Agnostic or perhaps a dyed in the wool Atheist. To you all I invite you to come and listen.

I testify that all of which I speak of here is witnessed in scripture. It is written:

Before He became the babe in the manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes, Jesus Christ, The Word that became flesh - existed before time as the visible image of God as he now does and will exist for eternity ahead. He is my Kinsman Redeemer.

Adam and Eve saw Him first and hid themselves from Him. Yes from the presence of the Lord God. God is a Spirit and no man has seen him. Who they saw was Him, my Kinsman Redeemer the VISIBLE IMAGE of God.

Hagar, pregnant with her son Ishmael, alone and humiliated in the desert after suffering the abuse of abandonment from Abraham and Sarah, saw and received comfort from my Kinsman Redeemer. She called Him, God who sees because He not only knew her name, acknowledged her as a person instead of a slave, but He also cared for her, comforted her and gave her hope.

Abraham saw and honored my Kinsman Redeemer as the Lord, who came with the two angels. Shaken, Abraham bowed down and gave food and drink to Him and called my Kinsman Redeemer Yahweh, appearing as man.

My Kinsman Redeemer appeared to the parents of Samson, the strongest man who ever lived. Yes it was my Kinsman Redeemer who told Samson’s father that His name was secret, not to be revealed at such a time. Samson’s father thought he had seen an angel but later realizes he has seen and spoken in person to God.

He was the man that Jacob wrestled with all night and would bless Jacob and change his name to Israel. Saying, “for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” Jacob said this of my Kinsman Redeemer: “I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”

My Kinsman Redeemer was the fourth man inside of the fiery furnace heated seven-times more as was witnessed and spoken by King Nebuchadnezzar, “the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

Isaiah the great prophet saw My Kinsman Redeemer, face to face in an open vision. He says, “The Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Where the seraphims cried unto another saying: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.” And poor Isaiah cried, “ Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” And praise be to God my Kinsman Redeemer had mercy on Isaiah allowing one of the seraphims, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar to say, “Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.”
Paul first heard my Kinsman Redeemer's audible voice and then most likely saw Him when Paul was taken up into the third heaven, the very abode of God. Paul could not speak of what he saw.
John saw my Kinsman Redeemer and lived with him daily for years. After the death, burial and resurrection of my Kinsman Redeemer John was taken into the third heaven and saw my Kinsman Redeemer and described Him as follows: "clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as a the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead, And he laid his right hand upon me, saying, unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last; I am he that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."
I must not fail to mention John also saw my Kinsman Redeemer at the coming second advent: "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords."
As for me I personally met my Kinsman Redeemer that night I was laid out on the floor by that heavy-handed, cruel taskmaster named ‘alcoholism;’ in a heavy lifeless heap of wasted human flesh. Dying the slow death of years of alcoholism, it had finally caught up with me. I failed to heed my doctor’s warnings. I was dying. I was desperate and somehow by God’s amazing grace, I found the words to affirm my faith to believe I was saved in believing He, Jesus Christ, my Kinsman Redeemer, died on the cross for my sins, He was buried, and rose again from the dead on the third day. Hallelujah! By faith I cried out to Him to help me and to save me from myself. He came He did that night and touched and healed my tormented soul. I gave myself to Him and He redeemed my soul and regenerated my spirit for eternity. I could not see him, but my spirit man knew it was Him.
 And for this reason, Amazing Grace is and always will be my most beloved song.   I like the man who penned Amazing Grace, John Newton, knew that only God’s amazing grace could save a wretch like me. Hallelujah!
Today I glory not in living these past 20 years sober, but in knowing I am His and He is mine. In knowing that my Redeemer liveth now and for evermore. Hallelujah!
Yes, it was the ultimate plan of God to save me and this I call to redeem me from eternal death. It was announced on that fateful day after the Serpent beguiled and destroyed mankind that God announced to the Serpent that the seed of woman would bruise his head. This was my Kinsman Redeemer who would many years later come from the seed of a woman named Mary.

My Kinsman Redeemer was not pre-incarnate before His virgin birth.This language comes from the vain imagination and philosophy of man and after the rudiments of this world. You see, my Kinsman Redeemer has always existed, exists, and will always exist in His physical form: As the visible image of God. Amen!

I am legally required by the eternal law of God to be redeemed or I face eternal spiritual death. I had this knowledge in my conscience and knew it in my heart.

I knew I was the firstling of the ass spoken of in God’s law that demanded I be either redeemed by the blood sacrifice of an unblemished lamb or be killed. I also knew that I was that wild ass’s colt my redeemer rode into Jerusalem.

I was the unprotected widow who needed the protection under law of a kinsman who could legally redeem me from slavery and bondage of a cruel task master.

These are the eternal laws of God.

I needed a Redeemer and He must be a Kinsman. A kinsman is the same consanguinity - same blood - to be from the same ancestor.

My Kinsman Redeemer had to be born of a woman - to be a human being - to be my kinsman. He had to be born of a virgin - the only begotten son of God - to be my redeemer. He had to be born of water and of blood.

As Emerson wrote: “Blood is blood which circulates, life is life which generates. ' Every mortal is generated and therefore, that which is not generated is not mortal.”

And this is why my Kinsman Redeemer, Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin in Bethlehem.

Because I, being a human being, was born into sin following the fall in the garden by the first Adam. By God’s perfect law, the price to be paid for sin is death. Who will pay this price? By God’s perfect law an innocent life must be sacrificed for the guilty party. The perfect, permanent solution to redeeming me was by sending the second Adam, Jesus Christ, my kinsman redeemer, to fulfill God’s promise of bruising the Serpent's head and saving mankind who was under the law of sin and death.

Here is why I must share with you dear reader why I’m so moved to share my story. I am eternally thankful that I am redeemed by believing my Kinsman Redeemer came to redeem me from eternal spiritual death, by His perfect sacrifice of dying on the cross for my sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day. I believe this and by faith is what saves me. There is nothing else that I can do but believe to be saved.

Amen! Maranatha!
