Rom. ( 3:24-25 ) Redempition

Thread starter #1
The words redeem, redemption, are used 160 times in the Bible. Not once do we read that it takes two or three works of any kind to redeem. On the contrary, it plainly states in the Bible that Christ redeemed men by "one sacrifice for sins ( Heb. 7:27; 9:28; 10:12, 14 ), He "once suffered for sins" to redeem (1 Pet. 3:18 ), that He "died unto sin once" ( Rom. 6:6-10; 1 Cor. 15:3; Gal. 1:4 ), this He paid only one "price" to redeem from all sin ( 1 Cor. 19-20 ), and that this was done one time at one place for the one purpose of getting rid of all sin, not only past sins, but also inbred sin ( Heb. 7:25; Rom. 6:3-13; 1 Cor. 15:1-5; Heb. 2:9-18; 5:9; 9:14-28; 10:1-19; 1 John 1:7-9; 3:5-10; 5:1-5, 18 ).
Christ is our redemption as well as our sanctification and when we receive Him we get both of these phases of salvation ( 1 Cor. 1:30 ). At the same time that we receive Christ we are fully reconciled to God and redeem from the devil and all sin ( 2 Cor. 5:17; 6:1-23; 8:1-13; 1 John 1:7-9; 3:5-10; 5:1-5, 18 ).
Redemption means to buy again something that has been sold ( Lev. 25:25 ), to deliver from bondage without ransom ( Deut. 7:8 ), to deliver sinners from Satan and sin by the blood of Christ ( Luke 1:68; 1 Tim. 2:6; Titus 2:14; 1 Pet. 1:18-23; Gal. 3:13-4:5 ), to deliver from power and guilt of sin ( Eph. 1:7; 2:1-9; Rom. 8:1-13 ), to deliver all creation from the bondage of corruption to the original state ( Rom. 8:18-25; Rev. 21-22 ), and to deliver from death ( Rom. 8:23; Luke 21:28; 1 Cor. 15:51-58 ).
