THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD Deut. 7:9 2-14-09

Today I want to talk for a little while on the “faithfulness of God”.

As we all know there are people in this world that are not faithful hardly to do with any thing, It seems that it’ is really hard for us to put confidence in any thing some people say or do. Have you ever known anyone like that?

I have met a few people that has lied to me so many times that I really had rather not hear any thing they have to say, because your just not sure if its true or not.

I’ve known some old drunks in the past that I’d believe quicker than some of the so called outstanding in the community crowd.

Unfaithfulness is one of the biggest sins of these days that we live in. In the business world, a man’s word is, with rare exceptions, no longer his bond.

In the ecclesiastical realm, there are men who have promised to preach and teach the truth, and yet they try and change Gods Word in order not to offend their listeners.

Let me say right here that there is a big difference in making an honest mistake as to what is meant of certain verses as opposed to purposely changing it. All of us make mistakes; pencils wouldn’t come with erases on them if we never made mistakes.

But there is One that has never made a mistake, One that we can totally put our trust in and believe every thing He says whether we understand it or not. And that of coarse is our Great God.

Ø He is faithful, faithful in all things, and faithful at all times.

Listen as I read today’s text, one verse;

Deut. 7:9 "Know therefore that the Lord thy God, He is God, the faithful God”.

His faithfulness is essential to His being, without it He would not be God. For God to be unfaithful would be to act contrary to His nature.

2 Tim. 2:13 "If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful; He cannot deny Himself"

I was talking to a man one time that was tied up in the “occult” about “hell” and that people that die lost and in their sins go there.

And his comment was, -that he didn’t believe in hell-

And by the way, he use to go to a Baptist Church.

All I can say about that is, that that particular Baptist Church was not preaching the whole council of God.

But let me say that whether he believes in hell or not does not do away with what The Faithful God has already said in His forever settled Word, just because a person don’t believe in hell don’t do away with it.

2 Tim. 2:13 "If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful; He cannot deny Himself"

Faithfulness is one of the glorious perfections of God.

He is as it were, clothed with it:

Ps. 89:8 "O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto Thee? or to Thy faithfulness round about Thee?"

To do with God coming to earth incarnate in flesh Isaiah said,

Isa. 11:5 "Righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins"

In Psalm 36:5 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

Ø Our little finite minds cannot comprehend the unchanging faithfulness of God.

Everything about God is great, vast, and incomparable.

He never forgets, never fails, never falters, and never does any thing contrary to His word.

Every thing that He has declared would happen, has come to pass exactly like He said it would, and every thing that has not come to pass as yet, is because it’s not His time for it to happen, but we can rest assured that what ever He has declared will at the set time.

Num. 23:19 "God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man**, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?"

Lam. 3: 21-26 Jeremiah says -This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 25The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. 26It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

More than four thousand years ago He said,

Gen. 8:22 "While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease"
