Our English muffins are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside … Thomas’ promises!
That catchy and well-known phrase defined their company and their product. It was a marketing and advertising slogan that … promised … and delivered.
Have you ever wondered what percentage of promises MADE became promises KEPT?
Friend, my track record and your track record may not be that high up on the charts.
But there is a King in heaven, whose track record is impeccable.
Every promise He has ever made He has kept … or will keep.
And there are THOUSANDS in His Word!
Hello friend and welcome to 5 Minutes of Hope.
Today’s topic is: The Promise of the Promised One
♫ If Jesus said it I believe it, His Word cannot lie.
If it’s written in the Bible, I’ll believe it till I die.
Though the mountains be removed and cast into the sea,
God’s Word will last forever, throughout eternity.
Oh, the promises in God’s Word:
They convey comfort.
They raise hope.
They foster faith.
They elicit expectation.
They persuade believers.
They spawn joy.
They prompt praise.
They reinforce reassurance.
They breed encouragement.
They effectuate expectancy.
“Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and I will take you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.
And [to the place] where I am going, you know the way.“
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going; so how can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:1-6 AMP
Now THAT … is a promise you can sink your teeth into, dear friend!
In our eternal home!
With Jesus Christ our eternal Savior!
A myriad of promises foretold His first coming as a baby in a manger. And EVERY one of those promises, right down to the most microscopical detail, played out EXACTLY as predicted and promised.
Well guess WHO promised WHAT? A SECOND coming of the Lord! Oh YES, my friend!
Is God a liar? NO!
Will ALL His promises be fulfilled? YES!
Is Jesus Christ returning to this earth as the conquering King of Kings and Lord of Lords? YES!
Dear one, are you looking forward to His return? Are you ready for His return? TODAY is the day of salvation. This world and all it has to offer is fading away. There is no satisfaction for the searching soul outside of the Savior. Friend, turn to Christ this very hour and find your hope in Him!
Mighty God, we thank You that YOU are a promise keeper and the promise of eternal life with You brings us hope. Help us to hold on tightly to Your promises and even tighter to the One who promised. In the matchless name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we pray. Amen
Friend, may you be filled with hope today and share it with others.
