    Deliverance

    That which God has promised, He is “able also to perform.” He “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20. He “is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.” Jude 24. He gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us, and He did not die in vain. Deliverance is ours. Christ was sent “to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.” Isaiah 42:7. Accordingly He cries out to the captives, “Liberty!” To them that are bound He proclaims that the prison doors are open. Isaiah 61:1. To all the prisoners, He says, “Go forth.” Isaiah 49:9. Each soul may say, if he will, “O Lord, truly I am Thy servant; I am Thy servant, and the son of Thine handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bonds.” Psalm 116:16. The thing is true, whether we believe it or not. We are the Lord’s servants, even though we stubbornly refuse to serve; for He has bought us; and, having bought us, He has broken every bond that hindered us from serving Him. If we but believe, we have the victory that has overcome the world. 1John 5:4, R.V.; John 16:33. The message to us is that our “warfare is accomplished,” our “iniquity is pardoned.” Isaiah 40:2. We have but to shout, as Israel did before Jericho, to see that God has given to us the victory. God “hath visited and redeemed His people.” Luke 1:68. Out of Zion has come the Deliverer, to turn away ungodliness from Jacob. Romans 11:26. “Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”GTI 21.1

    “My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!—My sin, not in part, but the whole, Is nailed to His cross, and I bear it no more, Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!”GTI 22.1
