I see on the news every night how bad things have gotten in this country. Although we live in the greatest nation in the world people are turning their backs to God. If we could just turn back Time 40 years when people prayed and went to church. We said the pledge allegiance at school every morning. Marriage was between a man and a woman only. I can't believe how bad our school system is today where children have to wear backpacks with bulletproof armor. If parents went to church with their children and lived a Christian Life maybe the world would be better that's just my opinion.

This will have a similar page on a website (it is buggy right now), because I can do more features there than on the limitations here, but for here, here is the topic - and supporting verse addresses:
The Bible is God's revelation to mankind

We understand that if someone is kidnapped, and this person belongs to an important, powerful, rich, person, then the kidnappers will want a ransom. (payment)
A "ransom" is a buying back, of something, or of someone.
When you became born again, when you were saved, God paid a ransom for you, and this is the Blood of Jesus.
"you are not your own, you are BOUGHT with a PRICE"....>"You are Christ's and Christ is God's".
The Blood of Jesus, is the full payment paid for your ransom, that has "blood bought" you back to God from your "lost" , "separated from God by sin", condition.
When a preacher or teacher uses the term "blood bought", they are referring to the ransom that God paid, ....a literal payment which is the cost of-for your sin debt that you owed God, that is Hell and the Lake of Fire.
So, the Blood of Jesus paid the PRICE for the eternal judgement due you, so that you would not be eternally damned, and eventually end up in Hell <> Lake of Fire after you died.
All This is the eternal consequence of the payment that God accepted on your behalf when Christ was offering Himself FOR YOU, bearing your sin, and in fact "Christ became sin".....on the Cross.
This Blood Atomentment Payment is eternally applied to you, as a free gift, the same instant that you from your heart, "called on the name of Jesus", and "received Christ as your Savior".
(Justification by Faith) = Alone.
In the present, after you are born again, there are 4 main things that you are ransomed from, based on the Blood of Christ being your accepted "payment due" to God for your LIFETIME of sinning and unbelief.
1. You are redeemed (ransomed from- delivered from) your Adamic Nature
2. You are redeemed (ransomed from-delivered from) Sin's power.
3. You are redeemed from (ransomed from-delivered from) The Curse of the Law.
4. You are redeemed (ransomed from-delivered from) The Devil.
Now there are other things that are involved in your ransom that would be counted as part of your redemption : Becoming an Heir of God and a Joint Heir with Jesus......and also, health, prosperity, abundant life, prayer's answered, etc.
