ISRAEL'S PROMISES – By Harold Steinbron

By Harold Steinbron

Scripture Reading: Romans 9:4

A promise is a guarantee of something future. When  God promises, His Throne stands behind any statement as  to future events. A guarantee is only as good as the word of  the one uttering the promise. When God promises,  forgetfulness or the press of duties that require His    will not hinder His keeping what has been spoken.  He does not make idle threats, nor does He utter what He  has no intention of carrying out.

How amazing that He has recorded so many of His  promises for all mankind and all angels and demons to see  and keep track of! If only one insignificant one were to fail,  a charge of lying could be justly leveled at the One who said,  "I am the Truth." No wonder God levels the charge of  making Him a liar at those who do not believe what He has  written. How lightly men call each other liars, and justly so;  but to charge God with lying, how unthinkable!

Some "spiritualize" God's promises to Israel, of a  perfect and peaceful earth with perfect climate and peaceful  animal and human relations. Isaiah 65 gives such promises,  and it is wonderful just to read it because it contrasts with our present experience.

We must divide between Israel's promises of earthly  blessing and our promises of blessings in the Heavenlies  with Christ, or else we make both to mean nothing, and God  to be a LIAR! May it never be!
