Faithfulness names of God

God took an Oath

clip image002 thumb God Took an Oath“The LORD has sworn, and will not repent; You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek” Psalm 110:4

From creation God revealed Himself as a Promise keeper in the name Elohim. It was in the plan that man would be given a choice – trust God or seek to live life on his own. When man sought to live by his own devices, for his own lusts, and glory, God in covenant relationship with Himself declared He would save him from his sins.

By nature, God is a covenant maker, and because of His great love with which he loved us, He bound Himself by an oath. As the writer of the letter to the Hebrews put it, “Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us” Hebrews 6:17-18

God is not like us, what God swears to He will fulfill, and what God starts He will see through to the end, God has both the power and the character to fulfill all He vows. If you want to be blessed, consider the character of God, when He determined to redeem fallen men from their wicked deeds of betrayal, He vowed to do so, knowing its fulfillment would take – forever. “…You are a priest for ever…” (Emphasis added).

To God, Covenants are a serious business; Christians should always strive to keep their word!

A Lesson in King James English

In the Bible God uses the name Elohim over twenty five hundred times to describe Himself. Unfortunately, much is lost in our English translations; however, if you have a New American Standard or King James Version the translators made it possible to know when the term Elohim is used. When you read the word God with a Capital ‘G’ and a small ‘od’ it is Elohim in the Hebrew. Other names are used with variations in the capitalization of the words, LORD, Lord, GOD, etc. I will explain in future lessons.

About Joe Durso

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
