The book of the genealogy of Jesus Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
Genesis 15:5-7 (Romans 4:6-8)
He took him outside and said, “Look at the sky and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” Then He said to him, “Your offspring will be that numerous.” Abram believed the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness. He also said to him, “I am Yahweh who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to possess.”
Justification of Life
I will keep My covenant between Me and you, and your future offspring throughout their generations, as an everlasting covenant to be your God and the God of your offspring after you. And to you and your future offspring I will give the land where you are residing—all the land of Canaan—as an eternal possession, and I will be their God.”
Everlasting- Eternal Life
You will show loyalty to Jacob and faithful love to Abraham, as You swore to our fathers from days long ago.
Promise in the Prophets
Your father Abraham was overjoyed that he would see My day; he saw it and rejoiced.”
Promise in the gospels yet to be fulfilled
2 Samuel 7:1-13, 22-24,
When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
This is why You are great, Lord God. There is no one like You, and there is no God besides You, as all we have heard confirms. And who is like Your people Israel? God came to one nation on earth in order to redeem a people for Himself, to make a name for Himself, and to perform for them great and awesome acts, driving out nations and their gods before Your people You redeemed for Yourself from Egypt. You established Your people Israel to be Your own people forever, and You, Lord, have become their God.
Psalm 32:1-2 (Romans 4:3)
How joyful is the one
whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered!
How joyful is the man
the Lord does not charge with sin and in whose spirit is no deceit.
Justification of Life
Pay attention and come to Me;
listen, so that you will live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the promises assured to David.
Since I have made him a witness to the peoples,
a leader and commander for the peoples,
so you will summon a nation you do not know,
and nations who do not know you will run to you.
For the Lord your God,
even the Holy One of Israel,
has glorified you.”
Everlasting- Eternal Life/Promise in the Prophets
He will be great
and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.
Promise in the gospels yet to be fulfilled in the Millennium
Hebrews 11:1, 6, 13, 39-40
Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him. These all died in faith without having received the promises, but they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth. All these were approved through their faith, but they did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, so that they would not be made perfect without us.
We wait eagerly for the fulfillment of the promises in the Kingdom of God! We greet them from a distance by faith!
