(KJV.) ST. LUKE 24:49
(49) And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
THE PROMISES OF GOD!
In reference to the above text; The Father promised Jesus, that after his resurrection he will send down the comforter to his believers to teach them all things, cf. John 14:26; after his resurrection, before he ascended into heaven, he assured his disciples of the Father's promises, encouraged them to wait for the fulfillment in the city of Jerusalem, read carefully, he instructed them to wait at a particular city, Jerusalem until they receive the power from heaven; why Jerusalem? Jerusalem is the city of God, cf. Hebrews 12:22, Revelation 3:12; faithfully, on the day of Pentecost, while the disciples were in one accord, the promise of the Holy Ghost was fulfilled, cf. Acts 2:14; therefore, whenever we receive covenanted messages, whether through dreams, visions, or verbally, let us double check the detail pieces of information, so that we may be at the right places waiting for our blessings at the appropriate time frames, for the promises of Jesus are always sure, yeses and Amenes; the gift and calling of God are without repentance. cf. Romans 11:29; faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. I Thess. 5:24; hold on to the Father's promises, it is already done, the moment he spoke it into existence; therefore, have patience, continue to do the will of Jesus, be ready to receive the promise!
Beloved, whenever God gives a covenant, he watches over his words to fulfill, double check his track records throughout the scriptures; his promises to Abraham, regarding the birth of Isaac, I Chron. 16:16, etc.; for he is always faithful to his words; therefore, let us wait upon the Lord, one thing about him is, whenever he is ready to fulfill his promises in our lives, nothing can hinder him from honoring his faithful believers; therefore, regardless of how many years, months, weeks or days we have been waiting for Jesus to fulfill his promises to us, continue to wait, never give up on his words, keep on trusting him, the promise will surely come to pass, at the appointed time! Continue to love one another as yourselves! Jesus is coming back again soon! Thank you for reading! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
