Precious Blood


We’ve not been redeemed
with corruptible things

like silver or
like gold

but with the precious
blood of Jesus

our Lamb without blemish
to behold.


“. . . conduct yourselves throughout the time of your sojourning here in fear;”

“knowing you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or like gold, from your aimless conduct received from your fathers,”

“but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

1 Peter 1:17,18,19 NKJV

We’ve been redeemed
as if it’s

the Year of

from our debts

to our King.


“And if he is not redeemed in these years, then he shall be released in the Year of Jubilee – he and his children with him.”

“For the children of Israel are servants to Me; they are My servants whom I brought out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.”

Leviticus 25:54,55 NJKV

(Interesting to note: “The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is MINE; for you are strangers and sojourners with Me.” Leviticus 25:23)

Washed With Water


As Aaron and
his sons

went to Moses
to be cleaned

so we come
before our Jesus

to be washed
and redeemed.


Lord Jesus, thank You for washing away my sins and making a way for me to be clean.


“Moses said to the congregation, ‘This is what the LORD commanded us to do.’ “

“Then Moses brought Aaron and his sons and washed them with water.”

Leviticus 8:5, 6. AMP

What Is Good


I brought you up
and ransomed you

remember what
I’ve done

walking humbly
with Me

loving justice and


I remember what You have done, for You are with me.


“For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, I redeemed you from the house of bondage; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.”

“O My people, remember now what Balak King of Moab counseled, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, from Acacia Grove to Gilgal, that you may know the righteousness of the LORD.”

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Abba Father


In the fullness of time
God sent forth His Son

that we might become
sons and daughters

redeemed from the law
with His Soirit in our hearts

we cry out to Him
‘Abba, Abba Father’.


You are with me and adopt me as Your own.


“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law , to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.”

“And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, ‘Abba Father!'”

“Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”

Galatians 4:4,5,6,7. NKJV

Something New


You take
our broken pieces

and make them into
something new

for You are
our Redeemer

and redemption’s
what you do.


You are with me and are making my life into something new and beautiful.


“For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel has said this, ‘In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, in quietness and confident trust is your strength. ‘ But you were not willing.” Isaiah 30:15 AMP

Lay Siege


Sin will only
lay siege

and waste
to your soul

turn to Me
be redeemed

set free and
let go.

You establish the difference between a life of sin and a life of salvation.

“Moreover He said to me, ‘Son of man, surely I will cut off the supply of bread in Jerusalem; they shall eat bread by weight and with anxiety, and they shall drink water by measure and with dread, that they may lack bread and water, and be dismayed with one another, and waste away because of their iniquity’.”. Ezekiel 4:16. NKJV

You are precious
in My sight
honored, loved

and I will make
a way for you
new paths and
fresh streams.

My way is established by You.

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you. I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert . . .to give drink to My people, My chosen.” Isaiah 43:1,4,19,20 NKJV

A Highway


There’s a highway
of holiness
for My ransomed
and redeemed

where sighs and sorrows
and every step
is a joyful leap.

Jesus establishes my pathway.

“The lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing. A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. But the redeemed shall walk there, and the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:6,8,9,10 NKJV
