Summary: God’s promises have never failed. This message contains three of God’s greatest promises that will stand for eternity.
THREE PROMISES OF GOD THAT CANNOT FAIL
Intro: Enclosed in the KJB is a collection of 66 books. Within those 66 books you will find some 32,000 promises of God. Each on of these promises has its own perspective. Some have already been kept, some are being kept as I preach and some will be kept in the coming future. But there is one thing that each one of these promises has in common. Out of all of them God has never broken one single promise nor has he ever forgotten one. I could stand up here a lifetime and never tell you all of the promises of God but I would like to look at a three of them tonight. I want to preach on this subject “Three Promises Of God That Cannot Fail”
I. SALVATION cannot fail
A. Salvation cannot fail because it is His salvation
1. (Isaiah 25:9) And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
B. The flesh will fail but salvation cannot
C. Salvation will do two things for you
1. Satisfy your soul
A. (Isaiah 58:11) And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
2. Set you free
A. (John 8:36) If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed
B. (Romans 6:22) But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
II. The SAVIOUR cannot fail
A. He cannot fail the SINNER
1. (Romans 10:13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
B. He cannot fail the SAINT
1. (2 Corinthians 12:9) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2. (Heb 13:5) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
3. There is a difference in the word “Always” and Alway”. “Always” is a measurement of time. “Alway” is a measurement of distance
III. The SETTLED Word of God cannot fail
A. (Psalms 119:89) For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
B. (Isaiah 40:8) The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
C. Can do two things
1. Settle men’s follies
A. (2 Timothy 2:15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth
2. Settle your faith
A. (2 Timothy 3:15)And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
B. (2 Timothy3:16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
C. (2 Timothy 3:17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Closing: Just how good are God’s promises? Just as good as the character of the One who made them. – A.W. Tozer
