*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*WITHOUT MONEY, WITHOUT PRICE(3).*
Isaiah 52:3 *For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
God owes Satan, nothing
People sell themselves at a price to Satan.
People sell themselves to Satanic promises at a price for their families' lives, at a price for others, and at a price for themselves for a reward.
People do these things with Satan for monetary gains, longevity, etc.
1 Tim 6:9-10 warns us, saying, *"But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.*
*For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.*
People find problems for themselves, and when they are overwhelmed with sorrows, they blame God for not coming to their rescue. Some even say God had sold them into the hands of the enemies, Ps 44:12.
In the words of Psalm 44:12, the people accused God of selling them.
The people went on to admit that God did not increase His wealth by the price He placed on them.
God did not sell His people at any price how much more for gain.
He made this known in Isaiah 45:13 that there was no price nor reward to Him.
This further tells us that God does not enter into any form of agreement or transaction with the devil.
Anyone who finds himself with the devil must have done so on his own volition.
This is why God says He has not collected anything from Satan to sell His people to him.
The people have only sold themselves *".....for nought..."* Isaiah 52:3.
He did not take any price for His people, Isaiah 50:1.
Let us be aware of how God values us. He would rather pay the price for our sins than take any form of sale of our souls to Satan. He took no payment at no price from Satan. There was no sale.
God's plan to redeem us is seen in this passage because if God did not sell His people to Satan at a price, He is free to claim them back without a payment.
You only owe obligation to someone you owe.
God will do anything to let anyone who is held captive by Satan *"......not for price nor reward, saith the Lord of hosts.*, Is 45:13.
God, owing Satan, nothing can redeem anyone at His pleasure.
This passage clearly tells us that Christ redemption charging no money, no price explains God’s independence and perfect existence, and whatever He chooses to do is without any hindrance.
This makes our salvation and other Kingdom privileges as non-negotiable with Satan. He does not need His permission because He owes him nothing.
It further tells us that those who sell themselves to Satan have sold themselves to naught because there is nothing they would gain for the price they paid to Satan
They have only gained for themselves bondage, woes, hard labor, etc.
God knew why He gave us His free gift without money, without price.
Your life is too precious to Him that no price could be paid in exchange for it other than His own life and blood.
So He paid the price Himself, charging nobody, requiring nothing unlike Satan does.
You were bought at a price that could only be paid by Jesus!
Satan can not afford the value of a soul. Why entrust your soul in his hands?
What will it profit you if you sold yourself or anything to Satan in order to receive from him?
*Call to Word action*.
No matter what anyone might have given to Satan in return for their ill-gotten wealth, they have only sold yourself for woes.
*The Christian clarion duty.*
What could anyone win in exchange for their so-called freedom in Satan?
Lord, let me not lose my Heaven for earth's gain in Jesus name.
Good morning and and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
