I Know That My Redeemer Liveth

Job 19:25-26

 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

I know that my Redeemer liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know eternal life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.

I know that my Redeemer liveth, And on the earth again shall stand; Job certainly knew a thing or two about tough times right? He lost his family, his livelihood and everything he owned. He had fallen victim to various physical maladies. His friends had come to “help,” and had done nothing but rebuke him. Yes, Job knew a thing or two about tough times. He also knew a thing or two about the nature of God and told us things about the nature of God that we need to understand. We need to understand that these things we know about the nature of God are not new, but have been known since the days of the earliest believers. Job knew His redeemer liveth, and would return physically to His creation someday, as he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. Job also understood a thing or two about his own nature as a believer in the Redeemer, understanding that though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God. Job understood his Redeemer was alive, and that he would live eternally with Him; we can understand this too, my friends.

I know eternal life He giveth,That grace and power are in His hand. While Job was clearly saved the same way we are today, that being faith in the Redeemer, his was the PROMISE of the Redeemer. Friends today, the promise has been delivered to us in person, and we can know this through God’s Word. We can know that we needed a Redeemer and that He is it. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, and we all need redemption. Yet, by God’s grace through our faith we can be justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Today we know and understand in whom we have redemption through his blood, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. We know that redemption comes according to the riches of his grace;. He is able to do this because The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand, including us. As he left this Earth and ascended to Heaven, Jesus told us that All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth, and that we could know He will come again because He promised that He would be with you always, even unto the end of the world.

I know His promise never faileth,
The word He speaks, it cannot die;
Tho’ cruel death my flesh assaileth,
Yet I shall see Him by and by.

I know His promise never faileth, The word He speaks, it cannot die. God’s word is eternal. The Word is eternal. His word never fails and He says it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. To us later is scripture He wrote to us that the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword. God makes promises to us, friends, and biggest is the promise for redemption if we believe. He never breaks a promise and is not slack concerning his promise,but is waiting patiently for men to repent and believe, he is is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Tho’ cruel death my flesh assaileth, Yet I shall see Him by and by.Sadly, the death rate in this life is 100 percent; we brought sin into the word and with it death. Due to the fall of Adam and Eve, we will all sin eventually, by nature and choice, for by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. We all have an appointment with death, as it is appointed unto men once to die, and we all need to be ready for our appointment for after this the judgment.

I know my mansion He prepareth,
That where He is there I may be;
Oh, wondrous thought, for me He careth,
And He at last will come for me.

I know my mansion He prepareth, That where He is there I may be. Friends, the death rate for this life is 100 percent, but the odds of existing eternally are also….100 percent. Because we are God’s special creation and Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. We will all live eternally in some place. Those who are judged and found to have rejected the Lord Jesus will live forever separated from Him in torment and regret in a place called Hell. Bad news, that is, but not for those who have believed, because, we see That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. No one and no one is rejected, or excluded from this offer my friends For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Oh, wondrous thought, for me He careth, And He at last will come for me. Despite ourselves and our sin, God loves YOU. Even knowing who we were,  God commendeth his love toward us, and He showed us how much He cares. We know He cares because, despite ourselves, Christ died for us. God loves each and every one of us so much that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For those who believe we need not be worried, he told us to Let not your heart be troubled. Why did He say that? Because He didn’t just leave us here to survive as best as we can, but promised to be with you always, and He is through His Holy Spirit. He is not just in Heaven awaiting us though, friends, He has gone to prepare a place for you, and finally will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

I know, I know that Jesus liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know, I know that life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.

Friends, Jesus did die, in order to pay the penalty for our sin; but His death was not the end for Him. In three days He arose gloriously from that grave and lives today at the right hand of the father. For after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God. He is alive, at the right hand of God the Father, and He will come again someday for those who are his. The only question is when He comes back, is he coming back to claim us as His, or will he be coming back to exercise judgment on us?

Which will it be for you, my friend?

I Know That My Redeemer Liveth

I know that my Redeemer liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know eternal life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.

I know His promise never faileth,
The word He speaks, it cannot die;
Tho’ cruel death my flesh assaileth,
Yet I shall see Him by and by.

I know my mansion He prepareth,
That where He is there I may be;
Oh, wondrous thought, for me He careth,
And He at last will come for me.

Chorus:
I know, I know that Jesus liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know, I know that life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.
