UNBREAKABLE PROMISE - NEW PREACHING SERIES

  • What is your promise for life and eternity?

  • What does God think about you?

  • Does God change in moods and seasons?

In UNBREAKABLE PROMISE we discover the power of a COVENANT. While contemporary ideas of a “promise” express future intentions, God has taken us back to the Cross of Christ where He swore by Himself. What that means is God isn’t bolstering hope around what He intends to do; He has committed His entire being and existence in what He has already done. For God to change His mind about you - about your future, or your daily nurture, or your freedom – He would have to self-destruct.

The power of this COVENANT, that Jesus has invited us into, is that we never have to question God’s will for our protection, health, strength, prosperity and contentment. The CALL on our lives will lead us to uncomfortable and inconvenient places, often surrounded with sufferings in obedience to God. However, the COVENANT has forever established our welfare as we fulfill the CALL. This series will change the way you think of God, yourself and the provisions He has generously provided!

WHERE ARE PROMISES ROOTED?

PSALM 89:34 NKJV My COVENANT I will NOT BREAK, nor alter the WORD (PROMISE) that has gone out of My lips.

HEBREWS 6:12-20 NKJV … imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the PROMISES. 13 For when God made a PROMISE to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, HE SWORE BY HIMSELF, 14 saying, "Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you." …17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of PROMISE the immutability of His counsel, confirmed [it] by an OATH, 18 that by TWO IMMUTABLE THINGS, in which it [is] IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the HOPE set before [us]. 19 This [HOPE] we have as an ANCHOR OF THE SOUL, both sure and steadfast…
