GOD’s two key PROMISES to human beings: Rainbow and C R O S S.

After Noah and his family came out of the ark after the great flood, God promised that the earth will not perish again by a great flood. God declared to Noah:

“[I DO SET MY BOW IN THE CLOUD], and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And [I WILL REMEMBER MY COVENANT], which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and [THE WATERS SHALL NO MORE BECOME A FLOOD TO DESTROY ALL FLESH]” (Genesis 9:13, 15).

God promised to to save human beings who believe in his only begotten Son before heaven and earth perishes by fire on the Last Day.

“[FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

“[FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS TO THEM THAT PERISH FOOLISHNESS]; but unto us which are saved it is the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:19).

“[WHEREBY THE WORLD THAT THEN WAS, BEING OVERFLOWED WITH WATER, PERISHED]: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, [BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN]” (2 Peter 3:6-7).

“The Lord [IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE], as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that [ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE].

But [THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT; IN THE WHICH THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT, THE EARTH ALSO AND THE WORKS THAT ARE THEREIN SHALL BE BURNED UP]” (2 Peter 3:9-12).

“[NEVERTHELESS WE, ACCORDING TO HIS PROMISE, LOOK FOR NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH], wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:13-14).

“HAVING therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, [PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD]” (2 Corinthians 2:7).

Let us keep the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST to the END. “For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

“[TAKE HEED, BRETHREN, LEST THERE BE IN ANY OF YOU AN EVIL HEART OF UNBELIEF, IN DEPARTING FROM THE LIVING GOD]. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto [THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12, 14).

“Now the [GOD OF PEACE] be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
