The Bible contains so many promises of God, that it is really impossible to count them all. According to his book, “All the Promises of the Bible”, Herbert Lockyer listed 8,000 promises. This number was based on a record that Evert R. Storms, a Canadian schoolteacher, kept during his 27th reading of the Bible. It took a year and a half for Storms to compile his lists of the promises of God. The promises by God to man totaled 7,487. ALL of God’s promises are very important; however, the MOST important thing to remember about God’s promises is that HE IS FAITHFUL TO FULFILL HIS PROMISES!! He even gave us a symbol of his faithfulness, the rainbow.
I would like to mention at least three promises that have special meaning to me.
The first promise is mentioned in Isaiah 53. God promised to send the Messiah, our Savior. God FULFILLED this promise at the birth of Jesus Christ!!
The second promise I would like to mention is the promise of God providing our atonement. God FULFILLED this promise at the death of Jesus Christ!! On the cross, God placed our sin on Christ and accepted Him in our place as He (God) provided for our atonement. 2 Corinthians 5:21 states, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”.
The third promise I would like to mention is a future promise: Christ’s return. John 14:3 states, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am”. I am confident that God WILL FULFILL this promise, just as He has been faithful to fulfill the other promises.
