“I Will Sing of My Redeemer.” Job knew of the Redeemer. The song has been around for a long time, but its message is fresh – for today. Music video by Bill & Gloria Gaither performing “I Will Sing of My Redeemer” (feat. Shane McConnell and Larry Ford)
Sermon Notes: Genesis 3:15 And Forward – Jesus, The Redeemer (August 15, 2015)

Genesis 3:15 New King James Version (NKJV) The first prophecy of the virgin birth of the Messiah/Redeemer/Savior/Jesus and of the doom of Satan.
15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
Genesis 3:17 King James Version (KJV) The penalty of the fall of Adam was the curse, which has affected the totality of God’s creation. Anything that is not like it would have been in the Garden of Eden is a result of the fall and resulting curse. Consider all of the horrible things of the world in which we live; things of life, things of nature, anything that dies, anything that creates death. You can add to this list, based on your own life’s experiences and observations.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Job 19:25 New King James Version (NKJV) Job knew of the Redeemer and of His triumphant return to earth to bring deliverance.
25 For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth;
The Day Of The Lord
Zechariah 14:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV) – The fulfillment of Job 19:25
1 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.
The Redemption. The sheep of the Shepherd. Other sheep.
John 10:14-16 New King James Version (NKJV) – Israel is God’s chosen; Gentiles will also be called and chosen.
14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
Death in Adam; Life in Christ
Romans 5:12 New King James Version (NKJV) – No death before the Sin of Adam.
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—
1 Corinthians 15:21-22 New King James Version (NKJV) – Death came by Adam. Eternal life came by Christ.
21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
John’s Special Relationship With Jesus – Consider the writings of John The Apostle.
John 13:23 New King James Version (NKJV) – An obvious intimate relationship between Jesus and John.
23 Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.
John 20:31 New King James Version (NKJV) – Proof of salvation is by belief in Christ.
31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
Revelation 1:3 New King James Version (NKJV) – The truth of the blessings of reading Revelation.
3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.
The Lamb Of God
John 1:29 New King James Version (NKJV) – The sin of the world, not the sins of the world.
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
John 1:12-13 New King James Version (NKJV) – The spiritual new birth gives eternal life.
12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 3:3-8 New King James Version (NKJV) – The born again experience is necessary for eternal life. Only God’s Holy Spirit can bring about the new birth.
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
This is not referring to water baptism, but to a spiritual cleansing of a flawed spirit. Everyone who has been born into this world, or who has been conceived, has a flawed spirit which must be regenerated, cleansed, born again.
John 3:15-18 New King James Version (NKJV) – The sin of the world (Jn 1:29) is unbelief. The unpardonable sin is that of “unbelief.” The purpose of Jesus coming into the world was not to condemn but to call flawed people to Him for eternal life with Him.
15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:36 New King James Version (NKJV) – The wrath of God awaits those who die in a state of unbelief, and those who find themselves missing the rapture of Jesus and present in the time of Tribulation (Matt 24; Rev 4-19)
36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
John 4:22-24 New King James Version (NKJV) – God chose the Jews to bring the Savior (Deu 7:6)
22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.
Deuteronomy 7:6 New King James Version (NKJV) –
6 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.
23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
NOT “HOLY GHOST:” Matt 28:19; Mk 1:8; Lk 3:22; John 14:26. HOLY SPIRIT IS CORRECT. GOD IS NOT A GHOST.
Worship in spirit and in truth. “All of us for all of Him.”
John 17:3 New King James Version (NKJV) – A text book definition of eternal life. “Knowing God, intimately.” The word “know” is the same as in Gen 4:1 (Adam knew Eve and she conceived.) and Matt 1:23-25 (Joseph did not “know” Mary until after Jesus was born.) Eternal life begins when we have an intimate relationship with God, (“Father, Son, Holy Spirit”). This is accomplished by the new birth. If we are born again we believe. If we believe we have been born again.
3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
