The Promises of GOD

  1. The Promises of GOD

    I am wondering what the promises of GOD are.

    Does anyone have any Scriptures? I haven't been able to research this all by myself...

  2. These are good. Thank you.

    As for God forgiving all sins though, there are other places in the Bible where it says that if one blasphemes the Holy Ghost it cannot be forgiven him, not in this life or in the next. Contradiction?
    1. He has promised to supply every need we have. The Bible says: "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus". That's Phillipians 4:19. Now notice, God has obligated Himself only to the extent of our needs. That would include food, clothing, shelter, companionship, love, and salvation thru Jesus Christ. It would not include the multiplicity of luxuries that we have come to think of as needs.
    2. God has promised that His grace is sufficient for us. (II Corinthians 12:9). in fact, He has made provision for our salvation by His grace through faith. Read Ephesians 2:8. It is through an obedient faith that we have access into the grace of God according to Romans 5:2.
    3. God has promised that His children will not be overtaken with temptation. Instead, He assures us that a way of escape will be provided. This promise is recorded in I Corinthians 10:13. Jude wrote: "Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present your faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy" (Jude v 24). Darius, King of the Medes, said to Daniel, "Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee" (Daniel 6:16). He did deliver Daniel from the den of lions.
    4. God has promised us victory over death. He first resurrected Jesus by way of assuring our resurrection. Peter said: "This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we are all witnesses" (Acts 2:32). Paul wrote to the Corinthians: "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" (I Corinthians 15:3,4). Later on he adds: "but thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (I Corinthians 15:57).
    5. God has promised that all things work together for good to those who love and serve Him faithfully (Romans 8:28). It may be difficult for us to see and understand how this is accomplished at times, but God has promised it, and He will deliver.
    6. God has promised that those who believe in Jesus and are baptized for the forgiveness of sins will be saved. (Read Mark 16:16 and Acts 2:38).
    7. God has promised His people eternal life (John 10:27,28). In closing, let me appeal to you to live so that the promises of God will be yours.

    God bless
  3. "Forget not"
    A short memory is a bad forgettory.
    To forget Lord's things is base ingratitude.

    1.Forget not the Lord.
    Deut 6: 12 "[then] beware, lest you forget the LORD who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
    Deut 8: 11 "Beware that you do not forget the LORD your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command you today,
    14 "when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
    19 "Then it shall be, if you by any means forget the LORD your God, and follow other gods, and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish.
    Ponder why He is not to be forgotten , as stated in the above scriptures.
    2.Forget not how thou prvokest the Lord thy God.
    Deut 9:7 "Remember! Do not forget how you provoked the LORD your God to wrath in the wilderness. From the day that you departed from the land of Egypt until you came to this place, you have been rebellious against the LORD.
    Remember past sins , and let them not to be repeated.

    3.Forget not the works of God.
    Psm 78: 7 That they may set their hope in God, And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments;
    Think upon His works if thou wouldest be large minded and provoked to praise.
    4.Forget not all His benefits.
    Psm 103: 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:

    His benefits are beneficial and manifold.
    5.Forget not MY law.
    Prov 3:1 My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands;
    To forget God's word is to ignore our responsiblities and shut ourselves out of blessdings.
    6.Forget not to good and communicate.
    Heb 13: 16 But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
    To be a blessing to others is to bless ourselves.
    7.Forget not the humble.
    Psm 10:12 Arise, O LORD! O God, lift up Your hand! Do not forget the humble.
    Jehovah will not forget the crushed and humbled therefore we should help them too.
  4. No contradiction there but a specific exception as detailed purposefully by Jesus Himself. The so called contradictions of the scriptures boil down to simple misunderstanding- God does not contradict Himself.
  5. Well said, I agree with this completely.
  6. Thank you. I just saved myself from wasting time saying this AGAIN.

  7. If you are going to speak the truth, no matter how many times you say it, it is never a waste of time. :D
