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