Divine Promises for our Lives

But we, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. (Gal 4:28)

through which have been given to us precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through these we may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2Pe 1:4)

Therefore "Come out from the midst of them and be separated," says the Lord. "Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you."
"I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty."
Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
(2Co 6:17,18; 7:1)

4. THE PROMISE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

And behold, I am sending the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high." (Luk 24:49)

And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to withdraw from Jerusalem, but to await for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me; (Act 1:4)

and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers died, all things continue as from the beginning of creation." (2Pe 3:4)

And now for the hope of the promise having been made by God to the fathers, I stand before you judged, (Act 26:6)

a promise to which our twelve tribes, as they earnestly serve God night and day, hope to attain. Concerning which hope I am accused by the Jews, King Agrippa. (Act 26:7)

And on account of this He is the Mediator of the new covenant, so that, since a death has occurred for redemption of the transgressions at the time of the first covenant, that those having been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. (Heb 9:15)

RECEIVING THE PROMISES

BY FAITH

lest you become dull, but become imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (Heb 6:12)

who through faith overcame kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, (Heb 11:33)

BY ENDURANCE
For you have need of endurance, so that having done the will of God, you may receive the promise: (Heb 10:36)

IN CHRIST’S NAME
