When the British Government sent word to Jamaica that slavery was at an end; that was an act of a government speaking for a nation. Every slave had the right to go free.
I doubt not there were slaves who did not believe it & went on with their slavery. Those who did believe it got rid of their shackles & were free.
I am here to say that every man & every woman & every child is redeemed. Is every man, woman & child saved?
That depends upon your attitude toward the finished work. Redemption is a work of God, but in order to have salvation the individual must exercise faith in what is accomplished.
