Romans 1:02 - An Ancient Promise Bookmark

Romans 1:2 - A Promise Kept

"which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures," (NASB)

"(Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)" (KJV)

"God promised this Good News long ago through His prophets in the holy Scriptures." (NLT)

Proepaggellomai: to promise of old; promise before

"Wasn't it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering His glory?" (Luke 24:26 NLT)

"He is the One all the prophets testified about, saying that everyone who believes in Him will have their sins forgiven through His name." (Acts 10:43 NLT)

"Now I am on trial because of my hope in the fulfillment of God's promise made to our ancestors." (Acts 26:6 NLT)

"This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God—who does not lie—promised them before the world began." (Titus 1:2)

"But now God has shown us a way to be made right with Him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago." (Romans 3:21)

A promise from before the world began (not a new age doctrine but conceived in the heart of God in antiquity) that has come to fruition in the lives of those who believe (not in a notional knowledge or a bare assent, nor in intellectual arguments, but in obedience) but in this the light of the Gospel, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Even more, it is a promise kept at no small price. It required the spilling of the blood of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. A promise kept and a gift given. A covenant written that cannot be erased.

Heavenly Father give feet to my faith in this the promise of old, your Son, Jesus Christ. Help me today in my obedience to this faith so that your light may shine upon someone yet in the same darkness where you rescued me.
