Passage: Psalm 57:2 & Hebrews 6:22
Duration:1 mins 13 secs


I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

(Psalm 57:2)

SURETY, one who gives security for another person or thing [a person who takes responsibility for another’s performance of an undertaking, for example their appearing in court or the payment of a debt [We read in Psalm 57 verse 2 “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.” Amen.]. This word occurs but once in the New Testament, where it has reference to Christ, who is made the surety of a better testament [Hebrews 6:22]. This better testament or covenant is the Gospel, or ministration of righteousness, which is designed to subdue the world, and bring all into obedience to God [in Christ]. There was no mere man able to do it, not for want of a desire, but for want of the power to accomplish it. Christ is surety of its accomplishment. He has power and life, and has engaged to put down all rule, authority, and power; and He will not fail nor be discouraged until He set judgment in the earth, and the isles shall wait for His law. He will assuredly perform all that God has appointed Him to do. “… And thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). [AMEN!]
