He Is Faithful That Promised

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; 
(for He is faithful that promised;)

(Hebrews 10:23)

Our God does not lie to us: Beloved, just as sure and steadfast was the promise of God to Abraham, to be both his shield and great reward; so too the Lord Jesus Christ is our shield and great reward. Indeed, the Lord Jesus Christ is our shield from every enemy of our salvation: Satan, self, sin, and death itself [Genesis 15:1, 2 Samuel 22:3, Psalm 62:7]. Our exceeding great reward shall be to be in the presence of Him “that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood” (Revelation 1:5).

Beloved, our God does not LIE; He does not tell us in vain to behold “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” And His angel declares, “He shall save His people from their sins.” We also have His sure promise, for He saith, “Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God” (Hebrews 10:7). Well, has the Lord done His Father’s will? Has He saved His people from their sins? Emphatically, the answer is yes! By His doing and dying, by His blood and righteousness, by His ‘one offering, He hath perfected forever, them that are His people’ [Hebrews 10:14].

Our God does not LEAVE us: The Holy Spirit sets forth, ever so blessedly, the faithfulness of our God in His word, in that the LORD did and does,“as He had spoken” (Genesis 21:1). Again and again, the Word of God sets forth God’s faithfulness to His counsel and His oath. Matthew records our Lord’s blessed oath; speaking to His beloved people, He tells us, “I am with you alway” (Matthew 28:20). In the epistle to the Hebrews, written to the “many” the Lord is bringing unto glory, Paul reminds us of the very same promise; beloved, our Lord will be with us always—he writes that God has promised, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5). The three times this blessed promise is set forth by the Holy Spirit, it is accompanied by words that grant the believing sinner much comfort. Beloved, He will never leave thee, nor forsake thee; He “…will not fail thee,He will not fail thee,” “He will not fail thee.” (Deuteronomy 31:6, Joshua 1:5, 1 Chronicles 28:20).

Our God does not LOSE us: Beloved, the gospel of our Salvation is sure and steadfast, for it is founded upon the immutable, unchangeable, faithful character of our God; and because of His faithfulness, because of His never failing everlasting love, “ye sons of Jacob are not consumed” (Malachi 3:6). Beloved, His love is immutable, His counsel is immutable, His promise is immutable. And He has promised, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37). Believing sinner, you who have fled for refuge in Christ, patiently endure—wait on the LORD, and He shall save thee! (Proverbs 20:22). He has promised, and He will also do it. AMEN!
