“Bow of Promise.”..   Leave a comment

*********

Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends,
let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit,
perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
2 Corinthians 7 : 1

John,in Revelation wrote:
“They are leaves, from that tree which is
‘for the healing of the nations’. {Revelation 22:2}
When received and eaten they are to be the strength of the
character, the inspiration and sustenance of life.”
{ Ministry of healing, p, 122}

Have you ever tried to imagine the experience of Noah
and his family as they walked out of the ark
after their voyage of more than 1 year?
The ark had no outer deck for recreational activity,
no deck for basking in the sunshine.
Just an enclosed cabin below-
with all kinds of animal/ bird life.

Can you imagine the landscape left after that Flood
– rocks, boulders, and buried forests?
You wouldn’t need colors to paint the picture –
because it must have been all shades of gray.
Noah was thankful to be alive and to have his family with him.
He gathered them together for worship,
and just as they were rededicating themselves-
God put the colors into place in a picture.
A beautiful rainbow appeared in the heavens,
which was a token or promise that He would never
again allow a flood to destroy the earth and its people.

Sometimes, we pass through prolonged stormy experiences
that seem to leave our little world a desolate wilderness,
but when we take time to be with God-
He reminds us through the “Rainbow of His loving Promises
that he has not forsaken us,
that there will be a brighter tomorrow.”

“To every promise of God there are conditions.
If we are willing to do His will, all His strength is ours.
Whatever gift He promises is in the promise itself,
‘The seed is the Word of God’ {Luke 8:11}
As surely as the oak is in the acorn,
so surely is the gift of God in His promise.
If we receive the promise – we have the gift.”
{Education, p, 253.}

God’s promises are sure,
He will not disappoint, forget, or change His mind-
and he will fulfill them!
Then grasp His promises as leaves from the tree of life.”

Trust always in the Lord- he will not fail you.
