THE HIDDEN MEANING

INTRODUCTION

    In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe is to receive back more than has been lost to the point where the final state is greater than the original condition. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Immanuel, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Immanuel from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Immanuel, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith – the salvation of your souls. Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come  to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Immanuel who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Immanuel and the glories that would follow. To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven – things which angels desire to look into. 1 Peter 1: 3-12 NKJV

Biblical Word

     REDEEMED – “Therefore, say to the Israelites: ‘I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.  And I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am the LORD.’” Exodus 6: 6-8 NIV

Reference

     Joel 2: 25-27 – I will give you back what you lost in the years when swarms of locusts ate your crops. It was I who sent this army against you. Now you will have plenty to eat, and be satisfied. You will praise the LORD your God, who has done wonderful things for you. My people will never be despised again. Then, Israel, you will know that I am among you and that I, the LORD, am your God and there is no other. My people will never be despised again. GNT

Significance

     God Bought Me Back (The act of returning something to its Original condition) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe God restores us to a right relationship with Him through the gift of forgiveness and justification. He is able to restore earthly relationships. And He can even restore days and years that have been lost to the effects of sin. Doing the wrong thing has an erosive effect on the conscience so that wrong doing gets easier for the wrong doer.
