God is not a man who lies, or a son of man who changes His mind. Does He speak and not act, or promise and not fulfill?
You are not going to take possession of their land because of your righteousness or your integrity. Instead, the LORD your God will drive out these nations before you because of their wickedness, in order to keep the promise He swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
"I am now going the way of all the earth, and you know with all your heart and all your soul that none of the good promises the LORD your God made to you has failed. Everything was fulfilled for you; not one promise has failed.
Since every good thing the LORD your God promised you has come about, so He will bring on you every bad thing until He has annihilated you from this good land the LORD your God has given you.
Not to us, LORD, not to us, but to Your name give glory because of Your faithful love, because of Your truth.
I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your name for Your constant love and faithfulness. You have exalted Your name and Your promise above everything else.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
He has helped His servant Israel, mindful of His mercy,
just as He spoke to our ancestors, to Abraham and his descendants forever.
He has dealt mercifully with our fathers and remembered His holy covenant--
Yes, Father, because this was Your good pleasure.
In that same hour He rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, "I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and the learned and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, because this was Your good pleasure.
Don't be afraid, little flock, because your Father delights to give you the kingdom.
Paul, called as an apostle of Christ Jesus by God's will, and our brother Sosthenes:
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure that He planned in Him
This is according to the purpose of the ages, which He made in the Messiah, Jesus our Lord,
