Five promises from God you can believe in

Not a lot of prose today. You crack open your bible, look at the scriptures, read and study.

We’ve already established that Gthreeod and his word are completely trustworthy. He is not a man that he should lie. You should also know by now that without a doubt he cares for you and will never leave or forsake you. He name is Emmanuel meaning God with us.

And since you know that, what about the promises God has made to us, his beloved people? Can we believe in them, too?

Of course you can.

God’s promise is simply an assurance of what he will –or will not– do.  His  promises forms the foundation of all that we hope for.  Its been said the scriptures contain over 5,000 promises from God.  Keep in mind, all of the promises do not fall in the same categories. For instance, some are only for certain people, others are universal. Some of the promises are conditional (contain prequisites) and some are unconditional (nothing required except faith). While I don’t know all of these promises I believe they will each be fulfilled exactly as the Lord has said.

Peter writes that through God’s promises we have escaped the deadly decay of sin.

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Pet 1:2-4

Today, we’ll look at just five of these great and precious promises you can believe in.

Promise #1 – The promise of security. He promises that we will be free from danger, risk and loss. Read this one carefully and get an understanding. Psalms 91:1, 3-7

What conditions, if any, must be met?___________________________________

Promise #2 – The promise of power. He promises that we will have the ability and authority to perform effectively. Acts 1:8, IS 40:29-31, Luke 10:19

Who is the promise for?________________________________________________

What conditions, if any, must be met?_______________________________________________

Promise #3 – The promise of salvation. He promises deliverance from the power and penalty of sin. John 3:16, Romans 10:9,10, 13

Who is the promise for?______________________________________________________

What conditions, if any, must be met?___________________________________________________

Promise #4 – The promise of prosperity (He promises we will be successful) Read this carefully. Joshua 1:8, Duet 8:18

  1. 2 Corinthians 1:20
    For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

    Galatians 3:21-22 (King James Version)

    21Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.

    22But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

    PRAISE GOD!

  2. You can bring these on all day, because I would rather be challenged to dig into the word, than to hear about another pimp. I do come to sites like this because we share a common disdain for those that would contiue in unrepentent sin.

    Promise #1
    Our conditions
    1) Those that dwell in the secret place of The Most High.
    2) Be in a state of Trust
    3) Not to be afraid of….
    Terror
    Arrow
    Pestilences or epidemics
    Destruction

    Promise #2
    Who

    Power belongs to those that have The Holy Ghost–Acts 1:8

    He gives power to the faint & those w/out strength, conditionally upon them waiting, but trusting that these will come qualifies those that recieve.–Is. 40:29-31

    The seventy had returned with a praise report as to who & what was subject to them, but Jesus was letting them know that power was in & of God, so rejoice that their names were written in the book of l-i-f-e.–Luke 10:19

    —————————–
    Promise #3– The promise of salvation

    Jhn 3:18 answers Jhn 3:16 because Jesus didn’t die for unbelievers, but for those that are trusting or persuaded of His words, deeds & promises.
    Jhn 3:18
    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.—John 3:16

    Those that are persuaded are in a contant stste of believing or dependance upon God, not those that believe that there is a God;
    Jam 2:19
    Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.—–Romans 10:9,10, 13

    Who is the promise for?
    Believers

    What conditions, if any, must be met?
    Be persuaded of the promises to be fulfilled

    Promise #4 – The promise of prosperity

    When God spoke unto Joshua he had reference unto Joshua and thos of the 12 tribes, that were about to possess the land—-Joshua 1:8

    This was unto The Hebrews of that day, by way of Moses proclaiming the promises of covenant, now we fit in there by The Abrahamic Covenant, by thee shall all nations be blessed.

    We may embrace what’s in the bible, but all things didn’t necessarily apply unto us!

    Gen 22:18
    And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.—-Duet. 8:18

    We can embrace this portion of The Abrahamic Covenant! Those are hard questions that apply to this section!!

    —————————–

    Promise #5 – The promise of consummation

    A call to believe also in Him as they did in the Father—–John 14:1-3

    Hope to come, therefore we stagger not—-Rev 21:3,4

  3. Yes – When I truly know/believe that God is faithful and know/believe that He is mindful of me – This allows me to have a patient expectancy, as I ABIDE (stay, wait, rest, and continue) in Him, and as I continuously meditate in His word day in and day out – paving my road of success. This word has brought to mind an old song – [I’ve come this far by faith, leaning on the Lord, trusting in His Holy Word, He never failed me yet, Oh Oooh Oooh can’t turn around, I’ve come this far by faith] – Not sure of all the words, yet what this song says to me is that God has showed Himself faithful and that He will complete the work that He has begun in me if I would only ABIDE.
