Easter. The most important event in all of history is soon to be celebrated—the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This strategic moment marks the restoration of mankind back to God through the shed Blood of Jesus. We are redeemed from spiritual death, poverty, and sickness; however many believers are not experiencing their full redemption. Are you?

There are two sides to the plan of redemption—the legal and vital (or natural). Ephesians 1:7 tells us that we have redemption through His Blood. Salvation and redemption are free gifts from God. According to Romans 10:9-10, if you believe in your heart that Jesus was raised from the dead and confess with your mouth that He is Lord, then you will be saved. Heaven is not something you can work for, nor is it a reward for the life you lived on earth. It is a gift, purchased for you by the shed blood of Jesus.

Galatians 3:13 says, Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us…  Legally, He has redeemed us from poverty, sickness, and spiritual death. This is the legal side of redemption. As a child of God, you have been redeemed, and in order to walk in that total redemption from the curse, you must have an understanding of what Jesus purchased for you.

Christians world-wide are suffering from poverty and/or sickness. Obviously because they are born again, they accept the fact that they are redeemed from spiritual death (the final death), yet they don’t fully realize that the curse can continue to work throughout other areas in their everyday lives. Philippians 2:12-13 says, …work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure. This passage is referring to the vital or natural side of our redemption. We are to work out our own salvation (redemption) through our confession and profession of faith.

Years ago the world witnessed the historical event of the Berlin Wall coming down. Suddenly there was free access between East and West Berlin and even though the wall continued to stand from a physical standpoint, it no longer restricted the comings and goings of people on either side. People began chipping souvenirs from it.

This is a good example of what happens in your life. When Jesus came into your heart, you became a new creature, but still there are walls, barriers to the blessings of God. They may result from things you have done, how you were raised, or problems you created – mindsets that stand between you and the blessings of God. Legally, the Blood of Jesus has taken care of those walls because you are free in Jesus, but in your day-to-day activities you find that those walls present themselves as obstacles. So what do you do? You’re going to have to do what they did to the Berlin Wall. You must start knocking those walls down by a steady, consistent, faith-filled confession of God’s Word.

Jeremiah 23:29 says, Is not My Word like as a fire? Saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? The walls in your life have no rule or reign over you, nor do they have a right to stop or hinder you and yet they still exist. Here’s your answer…take your hammer and start knocking those walls down! Like knocking a natural wall down, you can use a little chipping hammer or a pile driver. The more you confess and preach the Word instead of talking what you feel or think, the faster those walls will come down!

Every time Satan reminds you of a wall in your life, you have a hammer that will take care of it. Don’t just sit by the wall. This is what far too many Christians do. They sit by their wall, accept their present circumstances, and continually feed their thoughts and feelings with their words. But you, my friend, have been given a hammer in order to break down those walls and live your days on earth in total and complete redemption.

You know what faithfulness means. If you’re faithful to your spouse, that means that you don’t run around with someone else. In the same way, if you’re faithful to God’s Word you don’t run around with somebody else’s word. You’re a God’s-Word man or woman. Faithfully using the hammer of God’s Word will bring those walls down for good.

So take inventory during this Easter or Resurrection Season. Are there walls in your life that you seem to have accepted? If so, pick up your hammer and blast them out of your life with God’s Word! Remember, redemption is yours – it BELONGS to you.
