Lord Promised Israel

As you study your scriptures during the next six months, I encourage you to make a list of all that the Lord has promised He will do for covenant Israel. I think you will be astounded! Ponder these promises. Talk about them with your family and friends. Then live and watch for these promises to be fulfilled in your own life.

    • keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people (Ex 19:5)
    • gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel (Isa 27:12)
    • with great mercies will I gather thee (Isa 54:7)
    • God which gathereth the outcasts of Israel (Isa 56:8)
    • As a shepherd…so will I seek out my sheep (Exek 34:12)

    • Lord will set his hand again…to restore his people from their lost and fallen state. Wherefore, he will proceed to do a marvelous work and a wonder among the children of men (2 Ne. 25:17)
    • I have covenanted with them that I would gather them together (3 Nephi 20:29)

    • Ponder – I’m keeping the Lord’s covenants, so I’m promised all that he has, such as the ability do miracle of healings to Shanthi Kimball’s arms (the outcast of Israel, do a marvelous work), desire the blessing of knowledge how to work smarter not harder.
  3. I have a God who hears me and as selected me out of all the people in the world, to be a witness of His name

    • I will be your God, and ye shall be my people (Lev 26:12)
    • Lord had visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon their affliction (Ex 4:31)
    • Lord hath chosen thee to be a special people (Deut 7:6)
    • I taught them…having first obtained mine errand from the Lord (Jacob 1:17)

    • bless you…children of the covenant (3 Ne 20:26)
    • my kindness shall not depart from thee (3 Ne 22:10)
    • Ponder – I hear the phrase to “work smarter not harder” throughout my life. Well having an all powerful God guiding me is definitely working smarter. I was born in 1969 and lived over half of my life already. I desire to leave a legacy, make a difference, become someone, able to rely on God, to live with faith instead of in fear, believe in abundance instead of a scarcity mindset.

  7. I’m changed/improved by God
    • Jesus Christ can cleanse me and help perfect me (Book of Mormon 2024 – March 25-31 Easter)
    • Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God. (Moroni 10:32)
    • And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot. (Moroni 10:33)
