The Jewish evaluation is the word

2020 The Year of …. Declaring God’s Word in and through your life
We looked at:
- GOD declaring over you in 2020
God’s declaration (promise)
over you in 2020
“being confident of this, that I who began a good work in you will complete it”
God’s declaration (promise)
over you in 2020
2 Cor 1:20
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
“Yes”- from God
“Amen” from Us
We began with
God’s declaration (promise) over you in 2020
- (God’s Part)
- (Our Part)
John 10:10 for 2020
The thief (enemy) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Gal 6:9 for 2020
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give in.
Important insight to remember In 2020
God works through promises
1 Kings 8:56 “Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed.
Ps 145:13 The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.
Throughout time God works through promises
- Adam & Eve- Restoration of Man- Gen 3
- Noah- Flood/Rainbow- Gen. 6
- Abraham – a Mighty Nation – Gen 12
- Joseph- Ruler – Gen 37
- Moses – Deliverer Israel – Ex 3
- Joshua- Posses the Land – Josh. 1
- Israel- Messiah – Is. 9
- Mankind- a Savior – Matt. 1
- Those who accept Christ—
- Promises Fulfilled –
2 Cor 1: 20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes ” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God
When God makes a promise- He intends to keep “it”
“If you will”
“Then I will”
IF my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their ways, THEN I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
If you will…
