"The Fulfillment of the Good Promise"

“The Fulfillment of the Good Promise”


‘The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will fulfill the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah.   ‘In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line; He will do what is just and right in the land.   In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety.  This is the name by which it will be called:  The Lord Our Righteous Savior.’          Jeremiah 33:14-16



God spoke to His prophet, Jeremiah, concerning the FUTURE of Israel and Judah, and the fulfillment of His GOOD PROMISE that He made to the people there.  


God was telling Jeremiah about a time when the nation of Israel would be restored, and the righteous Branch of David will rule over a united monarchy, the nation will experience PEACE and PROSPERITY.  The New Covenant will bring about CLEANSING from sin, and the city of Jerusalem will be rebuilt as a HOLY CITY that will NEVER be destroyed again. 


These promises goes beyond anything that Israel has experienced throughout her history.  Their fulfillment will occur ONLY in the MILLENNIAL AGE, when the Messiah’s kingdom has been established. 


Then the city of Jerusalem will take on the characteristics of the Righteous Branch of David, the Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ, who will dwell there. 


God will FULFILL His GOOD PROMISE to Israel and Judah, and He WILL FULFILL HIS promise of SALVATION for ALL mankind.  He has already provided the way for mankind to come and receive His GOOD PROMISE of SALVATION, through the shed blood of His Only Begotten Son, the Righteous Branch of David, the Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ, He is the ONLY way to gain access to Father God.   Without Him you are FOREVER lost. 


Have you ever come to God for the SALVATION of your soul?  You must come to Him with a REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and receive His GOOD PROMISE of Heaven for ALL eternity.  The ONLY alternative is HELL, a place of torment and agony.  So come to Him NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
