For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
2 Corinthians 1:20 NIV
These words “Yes and Amen!” are commonly heard from Christians. You will hear them saying all God’s promises are Yes and Amen.
How are we able to hold firmly to God’s promises without wavering?
God is sovereign. God is omniscient. God is omnipresent. God is omnipotent. These are all God’s characteristics. These powerful words of characteristics are more than enough to grasp the understanding by a human mind. But sometimes people are to over think of a simple phrase or words therefore, words became difficult to comprehend.
God’s promises is the same Yesterday, Today and Forever.
God’s promises are made to fulfill to all God’s children may it be to Israelites or to Gentiles. But some of us will say, that we are now living in the New Testament. Whatever God promises written in the Old Testament that is for Israelites only. Only?
We must to understand that God is a faithful and just. He is fair. He made NO distinction over His children. May you live in Old Testament or now in New Testament. He is forever the same.
“God is the same yesterday, today and forever” Hebrews 13:8
Hold on the meaning of His Promises
God speaks to us through reading the Bible; Through the passages of each chapter, there comes a revelation to us; has its meaning according to our situation. That is how magnificent His words are to us. Because God’s Word is alive. It is God’s breath.
Likewise with God’s promises. It is alive. It is living. It is His Word. It has its meaning to us. Though some of His promises was spoken according to the history, was to the people of Israel, God will make it sure that He will make it happen to us as well. His promises will never be in past tense. It will always be in present and future tense. That is how faithful He is.
In Jesus His promises are fulfilled in us.
God loves us so much, that He gave His only begotten Son–Jesus. His Agape love to us is tangible and as crystal clear through Jesus. We don’t deserve our Salvation but He freely gave it all to us through Jesus. Now and forever.
So for so many, God had said His promises. Promises had mentioned and declared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and to Israelites–though were mentioned in the past in history. Its meaning, its effectiveness, its revelation, God will make it happen to us. As long we believe in His Son, Jesus. We have His Blessed Distinction!
Because the Bible says, that God’s promises is always “Yes” in Christ Jesus. And so through Jesus, God’s promises is fulfilled and we say “Amen“, God gets the glory.
These “Amen/s” from us, as we utter it is a song to God’s ears, because it is a sign of hope, trust and dependence, and looking forward for the future. That God is faithful to fulfill His promises in us through Jesus!
God, thank you for Your Son, Jesus, because of Him, I have life, hope and a future. I have Your promises. I will hold on to it!
