Promises from Heaven
But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me. (Galatians Ch. 2 verse 6).
From the first “In,” to the last “Amen,” the Holy Bible in its entirety was divinely written to all people, be they Jew or Gentile, saint and sinner, of any color or birthright. Under the Old Covenant obedience was primarily out of fear and punishment. God’s Word under His New Covenant promises security because of His grace, the once and for all sacrifice of His Son, that now applies to all people.
And His Word, His contract, His covenant is good. Isn’t it a great and wonderful feeling to know that our security and safety, is the will and the Word of God. And His promises are good, for all times, for all people. There is no way to know and be in God’s will, without knowing and obeying “all” of God’s Word. “Love one another” comes to mind. As the Word is being taught and proclaimed today, we must heed the Apostle Paul’s warning: “If anyone proclaims a different gospel, perverts the gospel of Christ, or preaches any other gospel, let him be accursed.” (Galatians Ch.1 verses 6-9).
There is no reason or excuse to add, ignore or delete anything from the promises from Heaven. They were written to all of us with the grace and divine wisdom of God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Cherish them, believe them, defend them, let the Holy Spirit interpret them.
