Every Word – Promises

A lot has been written and even movies made showing the importance of every word and that there can be hidden meaning in every word in the Bible. At the same time many things that are not hidden are not understood or ignored. Many have been taught to ignore the Bible’s own definition for terms.

The modern churches have taught that God broke all of His promises. The old testament shows God selecting Abraham and then Isaac. Then selecting Jacob, but refusing Esau even to the point of saying that He hates Esau and that there would be enmity with Amalek, Esaus’ decendants, forever. With each selection God included many promises. They are all through the old testament while many are fulfilled in the new testament and continue to be kept even today.

Yet the churches teach that God just couldn’t get Israel to follow him and so God loves everyone. Even more shocking is that the churches teach that the people who hate God more than any other people are God’s chosen people.

The new testament shows God keeping His promises. Christ said,

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”, John 10:27

There is no verse that supports maybe someday.

The churches try to make the Bible work with the falsehood of the world. Understand the falsehood of the world by the Bible. When you understand who are the correct people in the world by the Bible, one sees that God has never stopped keeping all of His promises. The new testament shows us a God who keeps His promises.
