Welcome to "Promises From God Which May Help You To"

"God Always Keeps His Promises"

I know if you are like me, when someone promises you something you expect that person to keep their promises, and when they don't it hurts you to the core of your heart/being, because they lied.

Some people even my husband, he breaks promises to me all the time, about his gambling habit, I try to tell him it is wrong, it's in the bible and he shouldn't be doing it, but he always says, I'm not going again, I'm going to quit, I am not going to go like I was etc, etc. But, what happens.... he breaks the promises he made to me, and he goes anyway.....so broken promises.

Friends, they end up doing the same thing, maybe not intentionally but they do it, that's a broken promises which turns into a lie as well. Family members are good at this one also, they say they are not going to do this or that and what happens they do the total opposite, make promises that they cannot keep.

One thing I definitely am sure of, "GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES" I never have to worry about Him lying to me, everything He has ever said He promises and you do get it. He never lies to you, His Promises are made of Gold. You know, when God promises you something, you best believe you will have just what He promised you.

I have included some Verses on Promises and I Pray They help you!

PROMISE FROM GOD: Isaiah 55:7 . . . Let the people turn from their wicked deeds. Let them banish from their minds the very thought of doing wrong! Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God.

PROMISE FROM GOD: 1 Peter 4:8 . . . Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.

PROMISE FROM GOD: Hebrews 10:23 . . . God can be trusted to keep his promise. God always keeps his promises.

PROMISES FROM GOD: Psalm 31:21 . . . Praise the Lord, for he has shown me his unfailing love. 2 Thessalonians 1:10 . . . You will be among those praising him on that day, for you believed what we testified about him. Those who believe will be praising God in heaven.

PROMISES

A promise is a declaration by one person to another that something will or will not be done. This declaration means that the person to whom it is given has the right to expect that it will be completed.

TYPES OF PROMISES

In the Scriptures there are scattered examples of promises that people give either to another person Numbers 22:17; Esther 4:7 or to God Nehemiah 5:12, but the promises that God gives to man are far more significant.

These divine promises are absolutely trustworthy because God is completely able to keep his promises Romans 4:21. Divine promises in Scripture assure their recipients of many benefits, including sonship 2 Corinthians 6:16-7:1, forgiveness of sin 1 John 1:9, answer to prayer Luke 11:9, deliverance from temptations 1 Corinthians 10:13, sustaining grace for difficult times 2 Corinthians 12:9, provision for all needs Philippians 4:19, reward for obedience James 1:12, and eternal life John 3:16.

God’s promises are certain and sure, but participation in their blessing often requires certain conditions. Divine promises also are not always guarantees of blessing. There are promises announcing the certainty of judgment 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9.

In addition to the promises of God, there are a great many promises that pertain to the unfolding of God’s plan of redemption in the procession of historical events. Promises of this type become synonymous with prophecy. Along with their subsequent fulfillment, they are intricately woven into the history of redemption.

PROMISES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

The highlights of the promise theme in the Old Testament can be seen in the first promise of the gospel (the protevangelium) given to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden immediately after the fall into sin Genesis 3:15. Subsequent promises are the covenants God made with Abraham Genesis 12, 15 and 17 and with David 2 Samuel 7:1, followed by the promise of a new covenant Jeremiah 31.

THE PROTEVANGELIUM

Genesis 3:15 says: “Your [Satan’s] offspring and her [Eve’s] offspring will be enemies. He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel”.

This statement is a promise that in the future the offspring of the woman will crush Satan. The offspring of the woman is individualized in the “he” of the last phrase. “He” shall strike you (Satan) on the head, although Satan will inflict a wound on the offspring of the woman. Here, then, is the promise that gives Adam and Eve, as well as their descendants, the basis to expect the eventual destruction of their adversary Satan through their offspring.

THE PROMISE TO ABRAHAM

In Genesis 12:1-7 Abraham is told to leave his people and country and to go to a land that the Lord would show to him. God, in turn, promises him that:

1. his offspring would become a great nation;

2. he would be blessed and his name made great;

3. through him other nations would be blessed; and

4. the land of Canaan would be given to his descendants.

Of particular significance among these promises given to Abraham is that through his offspring he will bless many nations. This promise is repeated five times in the book of Genesis Genesis 12:3; 18:18; 22:18; 26:4; 28:14 and points back to the promise of 3:15 as well as forward to Christ.

THE PROMISE TO DAVID

In 2 Samuel 7, God gave a promise to King David that his dynasty would endure forever 2 Samuel 7:16; Psalm 89:34-37. It is with this Davidic covenant that the promised line, which had previously run from Adam through Seth, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Judah, is now narrowed to the royal line of the house of David. David is to be the ancestor of the Messiah-King to come Psalm 89:3, 27-37.

THE PROMISE OF A NEW COVENANT

In Jeremiah 31:31-37, it is promised that in future days the Lord would make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. The content of this new covenant reemphasizes and extends the basic promises of the former covenant: “I will be their God, and they will be my people....I will forgive their wickedness and will never again remember their sins” Jeremiah 31:33-34. It would appear that the “new covenant” of Jeremiah is to be viewed as a restatement of the same basic promises included in the Abrahamic and Davidic covenants.

The new covenant was inaugurated with the first advent of Christ, and believers in Christ are now recipients by the Holy Spirit of the blessings of that new covenant Hebrews 8:6-13.

The complete and final realization of these blessings in all their fullness awaits the return of Christ, the complete establishment of his kingdom in its outward and final form, and the blessedness of life in the new heavens and new earth. In the intervening time, God’s people live in a day in which some of the benefits of the age to come are a present reality but the fullness of the new age is yet future.

THE PROMISE THEME IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

New Testament writers refer to the Old Testament promises in a way that indicates that they did not view these promises as separate and isolated assertions but rather as portions of a unitary promise that is ultimately fulfilled in Christ Luke 1:54-55, 69-73; 2 Corinthians 1:20.

Jesus is the fulfillment of the promises made to the patriarchs and David, and these promises are accordingly to be viewed as having a single focal point in him. In the books of Galatians and Ephesians, Paul develops this idea in more detail, saying to the Gentile Christians that they are made “heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus” Ephesians 3:6, NIV

In fact, Paul says that Gentiles who trust in Christ are incorporated into the seed of Abraham and are thus heirs according to the promise Galatians 3:29, and he even goes so far as to equate the gospel with the promise given to Abraham when he states, “The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: ‘All nations will be blessed through you’Galatians 3:8, NIV.

These and other New Testament texts establish the close connection between the coming of Christ and the fulfillment of the promise. The promises of God find their point of convergence in Christ and all that he accomplished, and will yet accomplish, for his people. One further aspect of the promise particularly emphasized in the New Testament concerns the coming of the Holy Spirit.

Paul refers to believers as sealed with the promised Holy Spirit Ephesians 1:13, and as receiving the promise of the Spirit Galatians 3:14.

The gift of the Holy Spirit is not only the fulfillment of an Old Testament promise Isaiah 32:15, and that of Christ himself Luke 24:49, but it is also itself a promise of something yet future.

Paul speaks of the Holy Spirit’s presence within the believer as a guarantee of our inheritance Ephesians 1:14.

The Holy Spirit is the “firstfruit“ of future glory Romans 8:23. One final aspect of the promise theme in the New Testament concerns the assurance of Christ’s second advent and the establishment of the new heavens and new earth 2 Peter 3:4, 9, 13.
