“The Certainty of God’s Promises!”

“For all the promises of God in Him (Christ) are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) That is, “all the promises of God in the Gospel . . . are in Christ fully and immutably performed” unto the glory of God.” (Joseph Hall)

“All God’s promises depend upon Christ alone. This is a notable assertion and one of the main articles of our faith. It depends in turn upon another principle, that it is only in Christ that God the Father is graciously inclined towards us. His promises are the testimonies of His fatherly goodwill towards us. Thus it follows that they are fulfilled only in Christ… Secondly, we are incapable of possessing God’s promises till we have received the remission of our sins and that comes to us through Christ.” (John Calvin)
