The Covenant Keeping God (1)
THE Bible is filled with promises upon which the believer can depend. God’s promises are anchored in His unchanging character and steadfast love. Where even our most heartfelt promises sometimes waver, the Word of God is His promise and never fails. “God has given us both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable”- Hebrews 6:18.
You can count on God for all His promises but first of all are you connected to Him? The only way to receive God’s promise is to believe in Jesus Christ. Galatians 3:21-29. The centre of God’s promise has always been the offer of salvation through faith. Holy Spirit seals the fulfilment of any of God’s promises to His children. Therefore, whatever promise you have received of God is trustworthy. The Spirit is God’s guarantee that He will give us everything He promised”-Ephesians 1:13-14.
Let’s explore together some of God’s promises to all believers. In John 14:1-4 Jesus said, “Don’t be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know where I am going and how to get there.” Christians can look forward to eternal life because Jesus has promised it to all who believe in Him. Jesus is preparing for us and will spend eternity with us. Those who trust in this promise can rejoice.
Some thousands of years ago, Jesus was physically present on earth, but after His death and resurrection, He ascended into heaven. However, Jesus promised to be with us forever in the form of the Holy Spirit. True to His promise The Counselor, the Spirit of God Himself came after Jesus was gone. His work is to care for and guide the disciples. The regenerating power of the Spirit came on the disciples just before Jesus’ ascension, and the Spirit was poured out on all the believers at Pentecost. “On the day of Pentecost, seven weeks after Jesus’ resurrection, the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm in the skies above them, and it filled the house where they were meeting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them.
And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability Acts. 2:1-4. The Holy Spirit is the very presence of God within us and all believers, helping us live as God wants and building Christ’s church on earth.
