Today we will hear that God fulfills what He promises.
Titus 1:2 in the New Testament says this beautifully, “In hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the world began.” In this passage, it is stated that God never lies. Or you can’t lie. Because God is true. Even Jesus Christ never lied. God, who cannot lie, has promised eternal life to those who believe in Jesus. God does not bend, He does not lie, because if this happens, there is a contradiction in His character and nature. Jesus Christ says in John 14:6, “Jesus said to him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.” Yes, listener friend, Jesus is the truth and there is no lie in him. Regarding the Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Peter 2:22 says, “He committed no sin, neither was any guile found in his mouth.” Jesus was true in every word. He never cheated. He always spoke the truth and he himself is the truth.
The Bible says that God’s words are true and exist, and the Bible is God’s word. In John 17:17 the Lord Jesus Himself speaks to God the Father saying, “Sanctify them through your truth; Your word is true.” Yes, dear listeners, Jesus is true and the words of Jesus are true and the Bible is the word of God, and it is true. Also 2 Samuel 7:28 says, “And now, O Lord Jehovah, you are the same God, And your words are true and you have promised this goodness to your servant.” What a beautiful thing God is. Jesus Christ is the truth. God’s word, the Bible, is true. We can find that many lies rule the world today. But God is true. It is absolutely impossible for God to lie. People lie and tell the truth. People do not always tell the truth. At any time, a person’s truth can turn into a lie. But there is always truth in God and He is true. This means we can trust God. As long as God is true and He never lies, it is absolutely impossible for God to lie. We can rely on God, We can be confident in him. Whatever he says comes to pass because he is the truth. If we look at the first book of the Bible, Genesis, we can see that God created all things and how He created them. God created the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. He prepares a very beautiful garden for them and places Adam and Eve in it. The garden we call the Garden of Eden. God gave them the freedom to eat from every tree in the garden. But he said not to eat the fruit of only one tree. That tree is called the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God says, In Genesis 2:15-17 we find this event explained. “And the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend it and tend it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying: “From every tree of the garden you may freely eat; But you shall not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil! For on the day you eat from it, you will surely die.”
God says to eat all other fruits but not from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And he said that if you eat the fruit from this tree, you will “definitely” die. But in Genesis 3 Satan comes into the garden and lies to Eve. Genesis 3:4-5 states that, “Then the serpent said to the woman: “You shall not surely die; For God knows that in the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Now God says if we eat the fruit of that tree we will die but Satan says we will not die here
s. Thus we can clearly see that Satan is lying. Eve also gives the fruit to her and her husband Adam, and they eat the fruit that God told them not to eat and fall into a lie. Thus we can find that sin came into the world. And we can find that death came because of sin. Today all people have to die one day or the other. And according to the Bible, sin and death can be found through Adam and Eve. Because according to the Bible, Adam and Eve were the first married couple to start the entire human race. Not eating is not only a sin to eat the fruit, but God commanded not to eat it, and it was a sin to break God’s command by eating it. God said if you eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you will die. Which turned out to be true and proven and last week we studied mainly because of the two main ones Adam and Eve. The first death is spiritual: separation from God. Adam and Eve sinned and separated from God. This separation indicates that the relationship and fellowship with him is broken. And the second death is the physical death, after that we can find the death of people. But Satan eats from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, He said you will not die. Which means we can find that Satan is lying. Now the Bible clearly states that God sent Lord Jesus Christ to this world to connect the fellowship and relationship separated from that sin. Jesus Christ’s crucifixion meant that he shed his holy blood as a ransom for the sins of the entire human race and offered himself to forgive our sins. He died and rose again on the third day. The resurrection of Jesus Christ declares victory over sin. Now when someone believes in Jesus, the broken fellowship and relationship with God due to sin is restored. And get life.
God, who can never lie, has given us many promises. God has promised us many things. And we can rely on those promises and on the true God who made the promises. 2 Corinthians 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God are ‘yes’ in him, and ‘amen’ in him to the glory of God through us.” If God makes a promise, He will fulfill it. No promise of God is wasted. His promises are true and come true, Amen. The word Amen is important. Because if this word is used at the beginning of a sentence, it means really, true, or true. And if it is used at the end of the sentence, it means that it is like this, it is like this, it is complete.
Now the promises of God and saying Amen means, first of all, God fulfills this, He is Almighty God and He is able to fulfill it. Second, His promises are true and true, in which there is no falsehood, Third, His promises are always the same, or His promises never change. Because He is the unchanging God. Malachi 2:6 says, “For I am the Lord, I change not,” and Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” God never changes in His attributes, nature and character. God has promised to never change and therefore now He does not change His promise and leaves it fulfilled.
We can be absolutely sure and confident that God’s promises will be fulfilled. People change and all the time, we cannot rely on the promises of people. Because subject matter, context, situation, behavior and other environment affect people’s promise and it is difficult to rely on it. But we can fully rely on God’s promises because God is fully able to fulfill them. 2 Peter 1:4 tells the wonderful truth about God’s promises, that “by which we have been given exceedingly great and precious promises, So that by these promises you may become partakers of the divine nature, escaping from the corruption of lust in this world.” From this passage we can see that God’s promises are very big and precious. Because of the promises made by God. These precious and great promises of God can be found everywhere in the Bible.
A great man of God said that there are 7,832 promises in the Bible. All these promises are for believers. As the Lord Jesus Christ promises in Matthew 7:7, “Ask, and it shall be given unto you; Seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” It is precious, because God has promised a truth that can be fulfilled. In Matthew 28:20, Jesus himself promises, “Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you; And behold, I am with you forever, even to the end of the world.” Amen. In Hebrews 13:5 God promises that “let your conduct be without covetousness; And be content with what you have; For He Himself has said: ‘I will by no means leave you, nor by any means forsake you.’ 7,832 such promises, We can find it in the Bible. And they are all precious. God will fulfill it.
The God of the Bible is faithful. 1 Corinthians 1:9 says that God is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible declares that God is faithful. We can rely on a trustworthy person, because he is trustworthy, and we can rely on God’s promises, because he is trustworthy. A trustworthy person keeps his promises. God is faithful, and He will keep His promises no matter what. The Bible says, in Matthew 24:36, that heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. God fulfills his promise.
Yes, as we said earlier, Adam and Eve sinned and fell away from God and died. But God promised a savior to Adam and Eve and all mankind who are descendants of Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:15. He promised to send the Lord Jesus to die on the cross to save people from sin and give them life. These promises are scattered throughout the Old Testament. And he sent the Lord Jesus Christ to this world according to the promise of the savior about 2000 years before today. The Lord Jesus Christ came to this world according to the promise to make the salvation of the entire human race possible, including Adam and Eve.
He gave evidence that he was the promised savior by God through various signs and miracles. As promised, he went to the cross to die for sinners. He shed His precious, holy, undefiled blood as the price for all sin. And he died, he was buried in the grave. And on the third day he rose from the dead, revealing that salvation was possible in him. The Lord Jesus Christ did according to God’s eternal promise and eternal plan. Because this is God’s promise. God’s promises are precious. God is true and faithful.
Now finally we look at one of the most precious promises of the Lord Jesus, one of the greatest and most precious promises that can be found everywhere in the Bible. Jesus has promised eternal life to those who believe in him. In John 10:28 Jesus himself says to those who believe in him, “And I (ie Jesus) give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; And no one will take them out of my hand.” Yes, in Jesus there is a life that will never perish, will always be in heaven. Jesus has promised that life. Who is faithful to fulfill that promise, true. Who cannot lie. If you too want to have the eternal life promised by Jesus, you can repeat this prayer with me.
Lord Jesus Christ I know that you died, was buried and rose again for my sins. I know that you have promised eternal life to those who believe in you, and you are faithful to your promise. You cannot lie. You are the true God. I believe in you and accept you as my personal savior. Give me eternal life in You and forgive my sins. I believe that for this you died on the cross, were buried in the grave and rose again. Amen in Jesus name.
With this prayer, we can find that the Bible explains that Jesus and in Jesus is the promised life, eternal life. Today we heard that God’s promises are precious, we heard that God who cannot lie gave us a promise. We heard the truth God promised us. And we heard that all those promises are great, big and precious. That’s all the biblical message in the radio program love message for today.
