Eternal Redemption

Eternal Redemption
“In Whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of 
sins” Colossians 1:14

The exact and effectual redemption of God Almighty’s elect church is an 
eternal redemption secured by one man, the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s 
sacrificial Lamb. The redemption accomplished by our Surety in time did 
not originate in time, neither will it cease in time. Christ is the Lamb 
slain from the foundation of the world (Re 13:8), He was the Lamb on the 
cross (1 Peter 1:18-20), and He is now the Lamb in the midst of the 
throne (Re 7:17). Time makes no impression on the purpose of God. The 
purpose of God dictates all past, present and future history in time.

Therefore we have redemption in Christ through His blood, even the 
forgiveness of sins, without beginning and without end according to 
God’s eternal purpose of grace. Christ died for us in time and we are 
given faith and regenerated in time as a result of God’s everlasting 
love for us manifested in the vicarious blood shedding of the Christ of 
God. “We have redemption” can only be said of and by those who have 
Christ – “But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us 
wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” 
1Corithians 1:30. This will never change! Heaven and earth shall pass 
away, but the redeemed have never been and will never be unredeemed! “… 
for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood out of 
every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation” Revelation 5:9.

Christ has obtained that which the triune God purposed … His people have 
obtained it as well because He obtained it for us – “Neither by the 
blood of goats and calves, but by His Own blood He entered in once into 
the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us” Hebrews 9:12. 
Away with universal redemption and the free-will of man! Thank God for 
His free will in the eternal redemption of once dead, chosen sinners! 
Even the forgiveness of sins!
