Redeeming The Time For Your Victory
Did you know that every Christian has an amazingly abundant inheritance? Redeeming the time we have is vitally important for us to be able to walk in that overflowing inheritance. Enjoying the fullness of our inheritance in Christ depends on it.
We do have an eternal inheritance that became ours when we gave our lives to Jesus Christ by faith and our confession.
We also have an inheritance that is available to us right now through the promises of God in Scripture.
What is This Heritage?
Every Christian’s heritage inheritance includes the “shalom” of God. This translates into happiness, health, wealth, authority, and God’s limitless love and mercy.
Are you experiencing all of these blessings on a regular basis, or at all?
What does God’s timing have to do with our inheritance? God placed us in time to see what we would do with it. The timing of God is an important key.
He gave us a choice to follow His standard and His calendar or make up one of our own? The concept and the operation of time is huge because it surrounds us and shapes everything we do.
Paul even gives us an instruction to redeem the time. To redeem means to get something back to its original intent or purpose or back to its true owner. Do you believe God is the owner of time? He did create it.
We must stop taking the gift of God’s perfect timing for granted. Our complete inheritance is a stake. He shared His gift of time with us through the seasons and organized it through His calendar, the Biblical calendar.
His calendar is not a bunch of meaningless names and numbers. God’s calendar can be found in the Hebrew calendar and is identified by the different months and years based on the moon’s cycles.
Don’t get offended with me bringing up the moon. Who set the moon in its exact position and set its schedule to rotate around the earth every 28 days? This has nothing to do with astrology.
The months and the years of God’s calendar have significant meanings which give us clues into getting deeper into God’s cycles of blessing. The Jewish months are not the names of a group of mythological and false gods like the Roman calendar.
Months and Years of the Biblical Calendar
The names of the Jewish months are obviously formed from the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Even the letters of the Jewish alphabet have specific meanings and their letters also represent numbers. As a result, the years and months of the timing of God have specific meanings and significance.
Don’t Buy This?
Let’s quickly look at the year of 2005 in the Roman calendar. In the Hebrew calendar it was the year of 5765. The number 65 is derived from one letter that has a rounded shape called the “samech” and another letter that looks a bit like a window lattice called the “hey”.
Together they referred to a whirling wind. Do you realize that 2005 was a record year for hurricanes both in strength and numbers? The weather forecasters ran out of English names and had to start using Greek letters to give them names.
God’s Will and His Wisdom
God is still in charge of time and expresses His will and desire through His calendar. God’s purpose to His creation is revealed through His calendar. Contrary to what a lot of people think, God does not want us running around in the dark without a clue.
He expects us to seek out His will and His wisdom. The Bible highly values wisdom and His desire is that we walk in His wisdom so that we can be in agreement with His will and receive our full inheritance both now and in eternity.
To help us get positioned for this to happen, He gave us His calendar so that redeeming the time we have on this earth would be possible.
What is the purpose of man put in very simple terms? The answer is to be in agreement or alignment with God Almighty. Our inheritance in Christ will be opened more fully to us when we follow God’s perfect timing.
We have put together an easy and enjoyable way for your family to start redeeming the time. Let God have His perfect way in you starting today.
