Redemption of the purchased possession.

Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Eph 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance UNTIL THE REDEMPTION OF THE PURCHASED POSSESSION, unto the praise of his glory.

In Jewish customs, it was a son's father who would choose a bride for his son. Once he found a bride he had to pay a certain amount of money for the union to take place. Once paid the bride would be called “THE PURCHASED POSSESSION” After payment was made, even though the ceremony had not yet taken place the two people are legally married!!! We the Church are the “PURCHASED POSSESSION”. Payment has already been made, and we are legally married to the Lord even though the marriage supper of the Lamb has not taken place.

When two people get married they are given “rings” showing to every one they are married. Usually, in our culture a man would give unto his fiance a “engagement ring” as a “pledge” to her. The Lord God has given unto his bride a “engagement ring”. The word, “ earnest” found in verse 14 means “a pledge”. The modern day translation of the same word means, “engagement ring” !!

The Holy Spirit was given to us as a engagement ring showing we are married to the Lord even though the ceremony is yet to come. As a Christian we are waiting for our redemption to be finalized. We are NOT waiting to get eternal life, as we already have eternal life. We are not waiting to be to seated in Heavenly places with Christ as we are already seated in Heavenly places in Christ!!!

What exactly are we waiting for then?

Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
Rom 8:23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as WE WAIT EAGERLY FOR ADOPTION AS SONS, THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODIES.

We are waiting to “know” the “redemption” of our bodies!!! Man is not just spirit, and soul, he is spirit, soul, and body. Experiencing a brand spanking new spiritual body is what we are all waiting to know!!! This will not take place until Jesus returns, and as we are are carried up into the clouds to meet him our bodies will change!!!

All places where “fat” has built up over the years in certain spots on our physical bodies that we really dislike will suddenly disappear. Jenny Craig has nothing compared to God's work out, or eating plan that causes us to all look super cool!!
No meetings, no consultation fees, no work outs, no going hungry or crying!! Where there is no hair, hair will suddenly appear. (I really like this one) There will not be one uncomely person among us. Usually a person's wedding day is the most important day of ones life, and we all what to look our best, even if we have to starve our self's, and go to the the gym everyday.

Thank God for his divine power that is able to cause a beautiful bride to come forth, all decked out for her husband, just in time for their marriage ceremony!!!
