8 Promises for the Believer, Now

Therefore, while the promise of entering His rest still holds and is offered [today], let us be afraid to distrust it, lest any of you should think he has come too late and has come short of reaching it. (Hebrews 4:1)

1)  Salvation – Deliverance (Joel 2:32 – And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [of survivors] shall be those whom the Lord calls)

2)  New Beginnings – Restoration (Joel 2:25 – And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten–the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you)

3)  His Call – Revelation – (Joel 2:27 – And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame)

4)  Intimacy With God – God’s Presence (Joel 2:29 – Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit)

5)  Yokes Broken – Fresh Anointing (Joel 2:28 – And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions)

6)  Coming Out – God’s Power (Joel 2:20 – But I will remove far off from you the northern [destroyer’s] army and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, with its front toward the eastern Dead Sea and with its rear toward the western Mediterranean Sea. And its stench shall come up like that of a decaying mass of locusts, a symbol and forecast of the fate of the northern army in the final day of the Lord, and its foul odor shall come up, because He has done great things ‘the Lord will have destroyed the invaders’)

7)  Increased Productivity – Financial Abundance (Joel 2:24, 26 – v.24 And the [threshing] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [of the grape] and oil. v.26 And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame)

8)  Walking in Destiny – Increase (Joel 2:23 – Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before)

Summary:
There are specific things that the Lord desires to do in the life of the true believer, but it’s only according to one’s faith and actions that dictates the outcome!
