The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in obedience to him.
He is the greatest, best, and perfect Oath Keeper.
God made a promise to Abraham. Since he had no one greater on whom to base his oath, he based it on himself.He said, “I will certainly bless you and give you many descendants.”So Abraham received what God promised because he waited patiently for it.When people take oaths, they base their oaths on someone greater than themselves. Their oaths guarantee what they say and end all arguments.God wouldn’t change his plan. He wanted to make this perfectly clear to those who would receive his promise, so he took an oath.God did this so that we would be encouraged. God cannot lie when he takes an oath or makes a promise. These two things can never be changed. Those of us who have taken refuge in him hold on to the confidence we have been given.We have this confidence as a sure and strong anchor for our lives. This confidence goes into the [holy] place behind the curtainwhere Jesus went before us on our behalf. He has become the chief priest forever in the way Melchizedek was a priest.
He died to prove it.
Jesus is God’s promise to us.
Jesus, you will never lie. You cannot. We trust you. Amen
