Joint-Heirs of His Promises

As joint-heirs with Jesus Christ and partakers of the divine nature, every child of God is the heir of every promise of God in His Word. Hebrews 6:17-20 contains multiple assurances and promises concerning the faithfulness of God to keep that which He has promised.

There are so many promises contained in this passage that we could spend eternity rejoicing in its many implications. God confirmed His oath of veracity to Abraham by two unchangeable things: the immutability of His counsel, and the confirmation of his counsel based on the essence of His holiness. The awesome power behind God’s ability to keep His promises to mankind surpasses our finite capacity to understand its boundaries! It is absolutely impossible for God to lie. The depth of God’s promises, and His inherent ability to perform them gives us a quality of hope so sure and so steadfast that it becomes the anchor of our souls. Jesus, our High Priest, made higher than the heavens (2), is ever living to make intercession for His children! “Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing that He ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25).
