The perfect promise

Presented by: Pastor Lynden on August 28, 2016.

Jesus made a perfect promise to us so we could live without taskmasters. From John Chapter 16 he promises to send the Helper, the Holy Spirit to be with us.

John 16:7 New King James Version (NKJV)

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

Jesus says if you love me, you will keep my word and my father will love you.

 

John 14:15-17 New King James Version (NKJV)

Jesus Promises Another Helper

15 “If you love Me, keep[a] My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

These passages are among the most reassuring part of the Bible. Jesus is comforting us.  You are going to get an advantage because of the perfect promise.

 

John 16:20 New King James Version (NKJV)

20 Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.

 

John 13:17 New King James Version (NKJV)

17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

Jesus is walking through there (Kidron Valley) and saying I am going to destroy those things that secular humanity has caused you to believe.
