The Purpose of Redemption
We are redeemed in order that (1) God’s original fiat may be carried out, and (2) to implement His plans and purposes for His Kingdom.
An act of redemption takes place when that which has been lost through forfeiture, force, or trickery has been restored to the rightful owner.
God is in the process of redeeming man from the bondage of the enemy.
To be wholly available for God’s Kingdom purposes, man ultimately must be wholly redeemed.
The Divine fiat is that man be in God’s image, both in character and outer form.
The Divine fiat is that man be capable of union with God and other people.
The Divine fiat is that man govern the works of God’s hands and be under subjection only to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Divine fiat is that man multiply the image of Christ throughout the universe.
In order to totally fulfill the Divine fiat, every saved human being must be totally redeemed. This may require ages of time, as we measure time.
This is the meaning of it all—that God may be glorified and pleased as the eighteen roles and tasks of the Kingdom of God are performed.
I suppose we always imagined we have been redeemed for our own sake. This is not possible. We never were the original owner.
It is God who originally owned what the devil stole by trickery. It is God who paid the price of redemption that God might regain what originally belonged to Him.
