Beloved. I AM your Kinsman Redeemer.
I saw that you were a prey to the enemy.
I saw that there was no justice.
I saw that there was no man to save you, no one to intercede on your behalf.
So My Own Arm brought you salvation. I put on garments of vengeance as clothing and wrapped Myself in zeal as a cloak.
I rescued you from the hands of the enemy Myself.
I conquered the devil at the Cross, Dear One. My garments of salvation now cover you.
I have hidden you in the folds of My Wings. You are wrapped in My Robe of Righteousness.
You have touched the Hem of My Garment. I have made you whole. This is your dwelling place.
Under the shadow of My Wings, you have found refuge, Beloved.
I will never withdraw My Garment of Glory from you. You are hidden in Christ.
Forever you dwell in My tent, hidden in the Shelter of My Wings. My Love for you shall encompass and shade you all the days of your life.
Like an apple tree among the trees of wood so am I to you. Do not fear, Beloved.
I have redeemed you, I have called you by name and you are Mine.
Come and rest, Dear One. With great delight, sit under My Shadow.
Taste of My sweet Fruit. Forever, I have you covered.
Kinsman-Redeemer: The male relative who restores, saves, rescues, delivers and preserves those who have been wronged.

“So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.
Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice.
He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him. For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak,” Isaiah 59:15-17.
