What God Said, He Will Do

God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

Numbers 23:19

God will always do exactly what He said He would. Many times we despair at the promises of God because we judge His time as ours. However, the times of the Lord are different from ours, as it is written in 2 Peter 3:8: But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. So we must be patient and wait for God’s time to see the fulfillment of His promises.

2 Corinthians 1:20 says: For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. This means we have a written guarantee that absolutely everything promised by our Heavenly Father will be fulfilled in His perfect timing, not a minute before or a minute later, it will come just in time for His glory.

The Bible describes hundreds of promises from God to His people, for His children and the church. Absolutely every one of them will be fulfilled to validate what is written. I put in context what it says Numbers 23:19 and mouth that left that expression. The person who spoke the words of this verse was Balaam, a false prophet, which said the New Testament who loved the wages of unrighteousness (2 Peter 2:15), walked in the error (Jude 1:11) who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality (Revelation 2:14).

However, the words of Numbers 23:19 are validated in Scripture despite being spoken by a false prophet like Balaam. No way is God a liar and His Holiness does not require any repentance like us. And as we saw in 2 Corinthians 1:20, He will do and perform all and every one of His promises that are contained in the Bible.

Here are some of the biblical promises included in the message to the seven churches of Asia. The Lord promises: I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God (Revelation 2:7); shall not be hurt by the second death (Revelation 2:11); I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it (Revelation 2:17); I will give power over the nations (Revelation 2:26); shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels (Revelation 3:5); I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more (Revelation 3:12); I will grant to sit with Me on My throne (Revelation 3:21).

All these promises are yes and amen in God and would be given to him who overcomes, who endures to the end. The Lord repeated three times in the book of Revelation “I come quickly” and each time it comes with a beautiful promise or wise advice (See Revelation 3:11, 22: 7 and 22:12). We expect confidently His arrival, which is every day closer because as He said it, it will happen. God bless you.
