How old are the promises of God?


Let us begin in the beginning with Adam and Eve. When they sinned against God, He promised them a redeemer. It didn’t happen in their lifetime. God chose Abraham to be the father of many nations. God made a covenant with Abraham for a redeemer. It didn’t happen in his lifetime. God chose Moses to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. God made a covenant with Moses for a redeemer. But it didn’t happen in his lifetime. God chose David to be king over Israel. God made a covenant with him not only for a redeemer, but He would be a descendant. It didn’t happen in his lifetime. The Redeemer would arrive a 1000 years after King David. When the time came, Adam, Abraham, Moses, David and all the faithful of God lifted up their heads from hell and saw our Redeemer, Jesus, born. 33 years later, after His death, Jesus stormed hell and lead captivity out of hell and into heaven. Everything is answered in God’s time. It may be seconds or it may be years. But what we are to do is believe and trust that God will answer. For without faith it is impossible to please God.
