Redeemed (Job 19:22-29)Dr. Sylvester Williams, July 12, 2015
To be redeemed is to be released from something
Job lost everything, and his so called friends kept him down. All they saw was his short comings, failures. So-called friends can make us believe that we are doing something wrong in life when we go through tough times while we still believe in God. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. The enemy can use anybody. The shame is on you if you let the enemy fool you twice. WE must understand the workings of the enemy and that even our friends have messed up in their lives.
God will set you free from whatever situations you are in. God says you can be redeemed, he doesn't care what you have done. He came to redeem you. God brought you out of trouble, distress. There is nothing that God can't save you from. Jesus wipes the slates clean when we are redeemed, but what we do is go back into the same situation and back to the same things after you have been redeemed.
Why do we do that? All God wants for us to do after we have been redeemed is to stay saved keep for going back in sin. You have to keep trusting in God. God has set us free and he has redeemed you. And because Jesus has redeemed you he has set you free.
Why do ye persecute me as God,
and are not satisfied with my flesh?
Oh that my words were now written!
oh that they were printed in a book!
That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!

22Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh? 23Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! 24That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! 25For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: 26And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: 27Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me. 28But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me? 29Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment. (KJV)
