The "Never" Promises to the Righteous

 In my last post, I explained the "never" promises to sinners. If you have never repented and given your life to Jesus Christ, then please go back and read that post. Or if you once knew the Lord and you have returned to sin, then go back and read that post, because until you repent and get your life right with God, the promises to the righteous do not apply to you. Instead you are subject to the same promises that God has given to all the wicked. But if you are walking in the Light, in fellowship with the Lord, and you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then all the promises below are for you.

A Treasure That Will Never Fail
"Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys." (Luk 12:33)

An Inheritance That Can Never Perish
"...and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you..." (1Pe 1:4)

Never Thirst
"...but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life." (Joh 4:14)

Never Hunger
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." (Joh 6:35)

"Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them, nor any scorching heat." (Rev 7:16)

Never Walk In Darkness
"When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, 'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'" (Joh 8:12)

Never See Death
"Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death." (Joh 8:51)

"...and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?" (Joh 11:26)

Never Perish
"I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand." (Joh 10:28)

Never Be Put To Shame
As it is written: "See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who believes in him will never be put to shame." (Rom 9:33)

As Scripture says, "Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame." (Rom 10:11)

Never Stumble
"Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble," (2 Pe 1:10)

Never At The Bottom
"The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom." (Deu 28:13)

Never Be Shaken
"...who lends money to the poor without interest; who does not accept a bribe against the innocent. Whoever does these things will never be shaken." (Psa 15:5)

"Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever." (Psa 112:6)

Never Forsaken Or Begging For Bread
"I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread." (Psa 37:25)

Never Be Uprooted
"The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land." (Pro 10:30)

Closing Words
I hope this has been an encouragement to you that you have these promises in God's Word that you can claim for yourself.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe. 

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
