Promises-Of-God“The Lord will always deliver us from all evil and will bring each of us into his heavenly Kingdom. To God be the glory” My friends “Satan well knows that all whom he can lead to neglect prayer and the searching of the Scriptures, will be overcome by his attacks.

Therefore he invents every possible device to engross the mind. But neither wicked men nor devils can hinder the work of God, or shut out His presence from His people, if they will, with subdued, contrite hearts, confess and put away their sins, and in faith claim His promises.”(E.G. White The Great Controversy)

My friends, that seems like such an easy solution to salvation and that is to claim by, or as by virtue of, our rights which are God’s promises.

“And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable [us] to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.” 2 Peter 1:4 (NKJV)

“Standing on the promises that cannot fail, when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail, By the living Word of God we shallimages prevail, Standing on the promises of God.” My friends God has made His promises available through His word if we will believe.

In addition, God’s promises are a declaration that something will be done Because He says it. Remember, God is “not human, that He should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. [He does not] speak and then not act? [He Does not] promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 (NIV)

But my friends we have to know what is in God’s word and how each promise relates personally to each of our situations. “Train up a child in the Lord, and when they are old, will not depart from your teachings,” relates basically too someone with children.

imagesAnd then there are promises for all, no matter what the situation, “….for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deu. 31:6 (NIV) Another promise for His faithful says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer. 29:11 (NIV)

“Standing on God’s promises, we now can see Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me; Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free, Standing on the promises of God.” Oh the precious blood of Jesus christ and the promises of it’s cleansing power.

“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:7-9 (ESV)

In addition, as we follow the word of God we should understand that Satan’s motives are only to keep us blinded with what this 6082_pSQHZk3vworld which is bound for perdition deems is right and acceptable.

2 Corinthians 4:4 tells us “whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

Well today we have a choice to be blinded by Satan and the things of this world or we can focus all of our attention on things above and God’s word and finish our course and continue to hold on to our faith as we endure and await our crown of righteousness, “which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give each of us at that day and not to us only, but unto [everyone] that love his appearing.” 2 Tim 4:7-8 (KJV)


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
