All the promises of God find their "Yes" in Jesus.

Galatians 3:16
  • Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.

God made promises to Abraham and to his offspring, namely, Jesus Christ.

God's promises find their yes in Jesus (2 Corinthians 1:20).

Therefore, we who are in Christ receive the promises of God in Jesus.

Therefore, we must reside in Jesus. We must remain in Jesus.

We are in Jesus positionally. Therefore, we have God's promises.

We receive the promised land that is to come (Genesis 12:7). According to Revelation, the heaven will come down to meet the earth, and the kingdom of God will be established permanently. 

Revelation 21:2-4
  • I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 

  • And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 

  • ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

God is not just their God but He is our God. He is my God and your God (Genesis 17:7).

We are favoured by God in Jesus because God promised Abraham that all the nations of the earth will be blessed through his offspring, namely Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah, the King of kings and Lord of lords (Genesis 22:18).

Yes, to summarise, You and I receive the promised land of the Kingdom of God, and God is your God and my God forever, and you and I are blessed blissfully by God, and all of these promises are completely and perfectly kept in Jesus, and in Him alone. Amen.
