The Wonderful Promises of Jesus Christ


During His short, three-year earthly ministry our Lord made a series of wonderful promises to his disciples and the huge crowds that followed Him:

THE KINGDOM

Surely it is no mere coincidence that His Kingdom was His first promise in His first teaching in the first Gospel, Math 4:17

Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

Later He told the crowds:

If I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God is upon you.
Mt 12:28

Seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and all things shall be added unto you. Mt 6:33

He promised the Pharisees:

…the Kingdom of God is among you. Lk 17:20


GOD'S LOVE

Like most Jews, Jesus knew well God's Love for the Jews, and for all men. He reminded His Disciples:

…whoever loves me will be loved by my Father. Jn 14:21


SALVATION

I am the gate, whoever enters through me will be saved… Mt 7:13, Lk13:24

The Son of Man is come to save that which was lost. Mt 18:11, Lk 19:10

I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. Jn 12:47


HEAVEN


If you believe you will see the Glory of God. Jn 11:40

I am going to prepare a place for you (in My Father's House)… Jn 14:26


JOY

I have told you this so that my Joy might be in you and your Joy might be complete. Jn 15:11

Rejoice and leap for joy on that day. Your reward will be great in Heaven.
Lk 6:23


REWARD

…your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High. Lk 6:35

The Son of Man shall come in the Glory of His Father with Angels, and He shall reward every man according to his works. Mt 16:27


PEACE

Peace I leave with you; My Peace I give to you. Jn 14:27


POWER

Whoever believes in me will do the works I do, and will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. Jn 14;10


Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive. Mt 21:22, Mk 11:24, Lk 11:9, Jn 15:7



BLESSED

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righeousness,
For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you…
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in Heaven. Mt 5:3f



ETERNAL LIFE

This is the will of My Father, that whoever sees the Son and believes in Him may have Eternal Life… Jn6:40

I am the Living Bread that came down from Heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever… Jn 6:51


I pray each reader find this list of wonderful promises to be a convenient reference and an encouragement to follow the Word and the Way of our Lord.

  Eschator, this is truly uplifting to see some of His promises laid out like this. Thank you for putting the effort into bringing us a handy guide. I love to live in His promise of peace, that no matter what is going on in my life, tragedy, illness and so on, I am promised to have His peace. When I rely on God, and remember that He is in control, and all things work out according to His ultimate plan, I have peace. I can sit back and say "God's got it covered!" Thank you! Sara

  I love the promises Of God, mostly because his promises are true and are never broken. Is he not so wonderful?

  Brother Escator: Yes, Jesus made wonderful promises! Through Him, and only through Him, we have hope. The promises you have listed are indeed glorious. What He did not promise was an easy path. In John 16:33, her also promised: In your life you will have troubles. Being a Christian is wonderful, comforting. But He did not promise that it would be easy. Shalom, Art

  Good Morning, Art, thanks for your comment and interest. It's a curious timing; just last night I was struggling about how to reconcile Mt 11:28 about a light burden with several other verses; denial, etc. Perhaps He wants me to think about it some more, and perhaps you are the messenger. Gracias. I take much satisfaction from Paul's belief in 1 Cor 10:13f about support in trials, and have felt that effect in my life. I also believe God does sometimes empower us to do His work. I should search for a scripture about that and pray on it. I wonder if and how you can find out about this comment. Does the system let you know? If you can, please comment. Have a great day. Glad you wrote on Health Reform. My thoughts are in process/festering/sizzling/I hope not stagnating. Bill

  Bill,

I'm glad that my comment may have fostered a bit more thinking. I'm convinced that it is the Holy Spirit at work.

As to notification, when a rely is made to a blog comment, an e-mail is sent to both the originator of the blog and to the commenter.

I'm still active on Health Care. I have no doubt that we need to make major changes in our health care system, but they should be done with thorough planning and with consideration of all who will be impacted. That included each and every one of us.

Shalom,

Art
