What Promises Can You Believe? In The Promises of God, Dr. R. C. Sproul shows how God—the one true Promise Keeper—always keeps His promises. Drawing from his expansive theological background, Dr. Sproul addresses questions such as these:

  • How do we know that God will fulfill His promises to us?
  • What can we learn about God’s faithfulness as we wait for His promises to be fulfilled?
  • What was the agreement God the Father had with Jesus before the beginning of the world?
  • What does God’s covenant with Adam mean for us today?
  • What common covenant do atheists and other non-Christians participate in with God?
  • What does God’s covenant have to do with His forgiveness of our sins today?
  • Why did Jesus have to die to complete God’s covenant with us?

  • God’s promises throughout history are the foundation for your relationship with Him. Here you will see how and why He keeps His promises to you, from now through eternity.

    “Though the biblical covenants have elements of promise, one thing makes them different from these other kinds of agreements—biblical covenants are established on the basis of a divine sanction. That is, they are established not on the foundation of promises made by equal parties, but on the foundation of the divine promise of God. In the biblical covenants, it is God who declares the terms and makes the promises.” (source)

    “This is significant for us because the Hebrews conceived of a covenant not simply as an agreement, but as an agreement plus the divine promise, which rests ultimately on the integrity of God, not on us as weak covenant partners. This is very important for our understanding of the covenant promises of God.” (source)

    “The whole point of God’s dealings with Abraham was to manifest clearly that the benefits of the covenant rest in the power and the grace of God alone.” (source)

    “However, the biblical view is that all people are in a covenant relationship with God even if they deny it.” (source)

    “If we understand the fact that Jesus was sent and authorized by the Father, we understand something of what went on before God created the world, before God created Adam and Eve, before there was any kind of probation in the garden of Eden. We talk in the first instance not about a covenant that God makes with us, but a covenant that was forged within the triune Godhead itself. In theological parlance, we call this the covenant of redemption. It speaks to us about an agreement that has existed from all eternity among the persons of the Godhead with regard to God’s plan of redemption.” (source)
