Sermon:
The Promises of God are "Yea" and "Amen"

Text – 2 Corinthians 1:20

2 Corinthians 1:20 says the promises of God are “Yea” and “Amen”. “Yea” means “yes”. The promises of God are not “yes” then “no”. They’re not “I don’t know” or “Maybe so”. The promises of God are “Yes!” Will He save you? “Yes!” Will He heal you? “Yes!” Will He deliver you? “Yes!” Will He set you free? “Yes!” Will He supply your needs? “Yes!” The promises of God are “Yes” and the promises of God are “Amen.” Jesus said in Revelation 1:14 that He is the Amen, the faithful and true witness, and the beginning of the creation of God. Jesus is the Amen! Amen means “So be it.” Amen means “It’s already done.” The promises of God are “Yes.” The promises of God are “So be it.” The promises of God are “It’s already done.” Every promise in the book is “Yea and Amen” but every promise in the book is conditional. The problem God’s people have with entering the promises of God is while God is saying “Yes, it’s already done” to what we want, God’s people are saying “No, I can’t do it” to what He wants. While God is saying “Yes, It’s already done” to what we need, God’s people are saying “No, I won’t do it” to what He needs. God is looking for someone who will say “yes” to His will and “yes” to His way. God is looking for someone to say “Yea” and “Amen” to Him. God is looking for a “Yes” man. God is looking for someone whom will say “Yes, I’ll go”, “Yes, I’ll say it”, “Yes, I’ll do it”, “Yes, I can handle it”, “Yes, I can make it happen.” God is looking for some “Yes” men and “Yes” women whom will say “Yea and Amen” to Him. In Eze 22:30, God says “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land..but I found none.” God is still looking for that man. God is still looking for that woman. God is still looking for someone to say “Lord, here am I.” God’s looking for someone like Abraham to say “Lord, here am I” when he needs someone to make a sacrifice.
God’s looking for someone like Moses to say “Lord, here am I” when he needs someone to represent Him before kings.
God’s looking for someone like Samuel to say “Lord, here am I” when he needs someone to minister in the church.
God’s looking for someone like Isaiah to say “Lord, here am I” when he needs someone to proclaim the gospel to the world. God is looking for someone to say “Yes, Lord.” Jesus said in Lu 6:46 - And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? If He’s Lord, you can’t say “No, Lord.” You have to say “Yes, Lord.” If you say “No” to the Lord, then He is not Lord of that area of your life. And if He’s not your Lord of all, you gradually, eventually find that He’s not your Lord at all. You have to say “Yes, Lord.” You have to say “Yes” to His will and “Yes” to His way. “Yes, Lord, I’ll trust You.” “Yes, Lord, I’ll obey.” “Yes, Lord.” “Yes, Lord.” “Yes, Lord.” Jesus was a “Yes” man! He did
