2 Corinthians 1:20 “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” A promise is a legally binding declaration that gives the person to whom it is made a right to expect or to claim the performance of a specified act. God’s absolute trustworthiness has been consistently demonstrated over a long time. The Scripture record shows unequivocally that God keeps His promises.
They are His commitment to us, His guarantee to do what He says He will do. God has promised to us this year that every step we take shall be blessed by His glory, we will move from one level of glory to another level of glory. All of God’s promises are sure because “God cannot lie.” Hebrews 6:18 declares that God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. God’s declaration this month is that His promises are “Yea and Amen.” God Himself declares in Isaiah 55:11, so shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. If we could actually take the Word of God and believe it according to what it says, we can come to only one conclusion; and that is the fact that every promise of God spoken regarding the believer is still available today, still in effect, has not been revoked or canceled and can still be accessed by all those that are born again.
God’s promises are “Yes” and our response should be “Amen.” God promises that He will never leave us nor forsake us, but that He will be with us always, even unto the end. He promises us the presence of His Holy Spirit, the Comforter, He promises to give us a way of escape when the burdens of life seems too hard to bare, He promises to keep him in perfect peace who’s mind is stayed on Him. The word “yes” is Greek and means certain and true. Someone has said that God’s favorite word is “yes.” “Amen” is Hebrew and means “so be it” or “it’s already done.” It can also mean “fully accomplished.” All of God’s promises are fulfilled in the person of Christ.
We could say that all of the conditional promises are kept by Christ. Since He has fulfilled all of the Father’s conditions, then all God’s promises come through Him because Immanuel is God’s Amen. These promises come through Christ but must be claimed by us (“spoken by us”). One must know Christ in order to claim the promises that come through the Promised One. God is looking for people who say “Yes” and “Amen” to Him. These promises are given for the glory of God, not just for our good. The problem with most Christians today is they fail to keep going to the next level they become comfortable with where they are now they have become ease in Zion when the Bible declares Woe to them that are at ease in Zion. There is more beloved, your level must move up this year in Jesus name. Shalom.
