Long-Awaited Promises – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Long-awaited Promises

“Next I saw heaven opened, and there before me was a white horse. Sitting on it was the one called Faithful and True, and it is in righteousness that he passes judgment and goes to battle. His eyes were written which no one knew but himself. He was wearing a robe that had been soaked in blood, and the name by which he is called is, “THE WORD OF GOD.” Revelation 19:11-14, Complete Jewish Bible

So how long has it been? One month? Two years? Four
decades? Long time, right?

How long has it been since you heard the Lord call
your name, you responded wholeheartedly with a, “Yes, Lord!” and then His Holy
Spirit spoke to personal promises to you?

Was He lying? Did He get your hopes up only to let you
down? Were you expecting a rose garden and you seemingly got one filled with
weeds and red dirt? (That can happen here in North and South Carolina. Red

You know what? The One Who is Faithful and True, the One
Who cannot lie nor lead you astray, will also be faithful to keep His word
given to you. Why? Because He is Love, and Love does not disappoint, Love does
not fail, and Love sees that what He promised, even centuries old, will bring
it to pass.

Let me show you how with one big example proving His

Let’s start with Scripture, for that is the only
foundational word that we can stand on. Even the gates of hell,
try as they may, will not, cannot, keep His Word spoken and written word from all
the days gone by from coming to pass.

We will look at the very words coming to pass today,
spoken centuries ago by the prophets of Israel, to those whom He had chosen, to
be an example and light to the nations. The Jews.

“’For thus says the Lord God: “Indeed I Myself
will search for My sheep and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock
on the day he is among his scattered sheep, so will I seek out My sheep and
deliver them from all the places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark

And I will bring them out from the peoples and gather
them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land; I will feed
them on the mountains of Israel, in the valleys and in all the inhabited places
of the country.

I will feed them in good pasture, and their fold shall
be on the high mountains of Israel. There they shall lie down in a good fold
and feed in rich pasture on the mountains of Israel.

I will feed My flock, and I will make them lie
down,” says the Lord God.

“I will seek what was lost and bring back what
was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick; but I will
destroy the fat and the strong, and feed them in judgment.” Ezekiel 34”11-16,

The One Who spoke to these people, who themselves had
turned from their Living God, to the ways of the nations, the idols in their
heads and their hearts, scattered them Himself, but Who also promised to bring
them back, as one big sing to all people, in all the nations.

He is bringing them back where? To the promised land
of Israel. As He promised He would do so.

In 1948 He did just that. He Who promised to do that
what He had promised, to fulfill prophetic words declared many, many, many
years before, is doing it now before our very eyes.

You then think the Lord, whom you have called upon to save,
lead, and direct your life cannot fulfill a promise He had given you?

Think again. What more proof do we need then to see that
the Living God of Israel, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, is bringing back His
people to the Land.

And as those long-awaited promises that He spoke to
you, He indeed will also bring to pass.

Our God is Faithful and True. Stay true yourself to Him
and watch Him bring the fulfillment.

“Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me; for I am
afflicted and needy. Preserve my soul, for I am a godly man; O You my God, save
Your servant who trusts in You. Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to You I cry all
day long.

Make glad the soul of Your servant, for to You, O
Lord, I lift up my soul. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and
abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You. Give ear, O Lord, to my
prayer; and give heed to the voice of my supplications!

In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You, for
You will answer me. There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, nor are
there any works like Yours. All nations whom You have made shall come and
worship before You, O Lord, and they shall glorify Your name. For You are great
and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God.” Psalm 86:1-10, NASU

Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store
for you and those around you.

Ahava and shalom,
