God Doesn’t Lie/Cannot Lie

 

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.  Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
Numbers 23:19
 

18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie .                 Hebrews 6:18

in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time      Titus 1:2
 
 29 He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being, that he should change his mind.”            1 Sam 15:29
 
 

56 “Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.                 1 Kings 8:56

 

All God’s Promises Are YES in Jesus!

 20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ.             2 Cor. 1:20

 

God Has Given Promises So We Can Be Christ-like

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.  

2 Peter 1:3-4

 

Jesus said we could Ask,

He’d Say YES!

If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.  John 15:5

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.  This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit,           John 15:7-8

These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:11

   

God, Who Promised, Is Faithful

23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful  Hebrews 10:23

if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.   2 Tim 2:13
 
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth  will be blessed through you.”
Genesis 12:3  
 
God’s Word Is Truth, Powerful,    Living & Active
 
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.  Hebrews 4:12
 

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32 

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it  without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish,  so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose  for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55: 10-11  
 
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.                  2 Tim. 3:16-17
 
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.            Matthew 24:35
 
Success Is Found In Promises & Fruit
 

For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.     2 Peter 1:8  

 …make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.           2 Peter 1:10-11
