The Holy Bible contains numerous statements made by God which form some type of promise. Many of these pertain to promises made to mankind which are in the form of an agreement or contract. These types are conditional, in that man has obligation to fulfill their part of the agreement or otherwise God will not be obligated to reward him. Let us take a look at a few of those which are unconditional.
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (Romans 14:11 KJV)
There are no conditions applied to this promise. You may rest assured that the day is coming when every knee will bow before God and every tongue will confess that He is God. He also made a promise to Abraham and to all mankind as follows:
And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, and I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. (Genesis 9:8-13 KJV)
Notice that God placed no conditions on these promises. The bow will appear in the rain cloud as long as the earth shall last, and we do not have to be concerned of another world wide flood. We have God’s word for these things.
Completely different to these types of promises however, are God’s covenants with man concerning conduct and obedience to him. In every dispensation God made a covenant with man specifying rewards and punishment he would bestow upon man, while leaving it up to him to make his own choice, to obey and receive the promised reward, or disobey and receive the promised punishment.
A number of people who prefer to ignore the Holy Bible, have said that this was a very poor choice. They preferred to live as they wish but receive neither of the conditions. But that is not one of the conditions and those that are offered, provide a wonderful choice. God has offered man a means of life eternal, with none of the pains or discomforts of this present life. All sadness and sorrow will be gone, all sickness and pain will be gone, no more worries whatsoever…and never ending.
The spirit is incorruptible, is not subject to physical injury or death, not subject to time or space and therefore, no aging. God, with infinite power and wisdom, desires his obedient children to have total peace and happiness, forever. There is no need to question whether or not he can provide such. He can.
