UNCLAIMED PROMISE - By Robert E. Hanna



UNCLAIMED PROMISE
By Robert E. Hanna



Scripture Reading: Hebrews 3:19

"For ever, 0 Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven. Thy  faithfulness is unto all generations: Thou hast established the  earth, and it abideth" (Psalm 119:89-90). "The Lord is not  slack concerning His promise" (II Peter 3:9).

Any barrier between God and His children is invariably  erected by them-never by Him. A consistent symbol of  disobedience, God's chosen people Israel have imposed their '  own limitations upon the fulfillment of His promises from the  very outset of their relationship. God's promise to Abraham  and his seed was absolute. The stated initial conditions were  perfectly clear and simple: "Get thee out of thy country AND  FROM THY KINDRED, and from thy (ather's house, unto a  land [Canaan] that! will show thee." (Genesis 12: 1). But what  did Abraham [then called Abram] do in response to these  instructions? Instead of leaving his kindred, he left his  country with them; and instead of entering Canaan, he  stopped en route and established residence for the next  twenty-five years.

As for Israel, their performance was true to the example  of their ancestor. They were given the glad news by Moses:  "Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up  and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto  thee; fear not, neither be discouraged" (Deuteronomy 1:21).  What was their response? Unanimous agreement! But again,  Moses speaks: "Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but  rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God"  (Deuteronomy 1:26). So much for unity in the Dispensation  of Promise!

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
