God Keeps His Promises
“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True” (Revelation 19:11 NKJV).
We all have our happy places; things we like to do.
Some people think that judgment is God’s happy place. In the nonbeliever’s mind, God is never fair in what He does. When people go out and break the laws that God gave us for our own protection and then face the inevitable consequences, they shake a fist in His face and blame Him.
But the fact is that He is faithful and true. The Bible says, “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True” (Revelation 19:11 NKJV).
And God keeps His promises. Jesus said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5 NKJV). He said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27 NKJV).
Has the Lord not kept His promises to you? He will keep all His promises, including His promise to come again (see John 14:2-3).
This is in contrast to the Devil, who lies. As Jesus said to the Pharisees, “For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44 NLT).
We read in Scripture that God is “not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9 NKJV) and that He has “no pleasure in the death of the wicked” (Ezekiel 33:11 NKJV).
Our Lord is faithful and true.
