Did you know the word IF is in 63 of the 66 books in the Bible according to Strong’s concordance (KJV), to which you might think, that is not so surprising or such a Big deal. We will look at IF in this context; an IF leading to a Then equaling A Promise (Blessing or cursing) which leads to a Reward or fruition (or the fruit borne) of that promise. Much hinges and is dependant upon that tiny two letter word IF.
If my people who are called by My Name…2 Chr. 7:14
IF you seek him….2 Chr. 15:2
If you do what is Right…Genesis 4:7
IF you listen carefully to what He says….Exodus 23:22
My son (daughter) IF you accept My Words….Pr. 2:1
In each of the above mentioned scripture refrence thare is A direct promise that is attached to the IF, you should and I highly recommend you read for yourself what those Promises are for your life. Well those are OT refrences and “We are not under The Law” as often is the justification by many Christians today, so lets look at some NT teaching. Since He changes NOT!
IF you knew the gift of God… Jn 4:10
Today IF you harden not your heart… , Acts 3:7,8
IF you Believe in your Heart and Confess with Your mouth that Jesus Christ IS LORD, and that God the Father raised Him from the Dead Then you too Shall be Saved. Ro. 10:9,10
ALL of The Bibles Promises of God are for ALL those that have put their Faith and Trust and Hope in Jesus (Yeshua) The Messiah. For ALL the promises of God in HIM are Yes and Amen.
