God Has Many Promises In His Word

There are many references to the deliverance of Israel in the Old Testament. Hosea 13:14 is one example; “I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be your plagues; O grave, I will be your destruction: pity shall be hid from my eyes.”

GOD, through Jesus’s death and resurrection, paid our ransom and redeemed us from the spiritual death. Just like the plagues of Egypt destroyed not just Pharoah’s resources but Pharoah’s will, death has been destroyed. Any power the grave had over us has been neutralized, GOD has no pity for death, the grave or any other enemies of His Children. I often talk about the Power of GOD, I’m not sure we can truly comprehend all the aspects of GOD’S Power, about all we can do is compare His power to something we can comprehend then multiply that by a thousand-fold or a million-fold. GOD, Our Father and Creator has many promises for us in the Word, we must never forget that behind every Promise GOD makes is the Power of GOD to keep those promises. And that, dear brothers and sisters, gives us Great Hope! Peace and Grace! Mike
