God Made Promises He Did Not Keep

Numerous Examples of God’s Promise To The Children of Israel

The old testament is full of promises from God to the Children of Israel. There are  over 100 verses in the Old  Testament where God promises to not only protect but make the Children of Israel the rulers of the world. Here are two of the ;promises:

I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

and

‘I will establish a place for my people Israel, and they will not be disturbed anymore. Violent men will not oppress them again. I will subdue all your enemies
1Chronicles 17:9

The Truth Is…

 

HE DID NOT KEEP A ONE OF THEM!

There is no need to enumerate all of the promises or God’s failures.. It only takes one  example to falsify all of God’s promises.

Since God made those two promises, his people “Israel” have been located all over the world and welcomed nowhere. They have been beset by the “children of wickedness” for millenniums, especially around the years 1939 – 1945.

Where was God and his promise during the Holocaust?

Here is  one more example of God’s unfilled promise to the Children of Israel:

For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.
Isaiah 60:12-15

WHEN is this going to happen? Surely those that heard the LORD say those  words believed that THEY would be the beneficiaries of the promise. The Zion of the Holy One of Israel didn’t even exist until about 50 years ago. And, if it weren’t for the money and weapons from the United States, it would have been overrun long ago.

Versus like those quoted above can be found throughout the Old Testament. No point in beating a dead horse. They are there.

We Shouldn’t Even Be Here….

Genesis

In the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” 2:17

God says that if Adam eats from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, then the day that he does so, he will die. But Adam eats the forbidden fruit (3:6) and yet lives for another 930 years (5:5). Adam went on to create a people so filled with evil (what do you expect after 8 generations of incest?) that God would eventually drown all but eight of them along with their pets.

Turns out that the serpent was right

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 3:4

Why should Eve have believed “God” any more than the serpent? How was she to know who the real God was? God lied to her; the serpent told the truth. The take-away from this little fable  is “believe the serpent”.

Why Do People Continue to Believe God is There For THEM?

In light of the obvious fact that the promises of God have never been kept, why do people continue to believe that God is there for them?

    With the amount of evil in this world, and God’s lack of justice, it’s almost as if he doesn’t exist!

  2. Alois says:

    On the eating of the fruit from the tree of knowledge I can say this. Adam and Eve died as a result of eating the fruit. Death did not exist yet for them beforehand, for all intents and purposes one can assume that they were immortal. In fact most Christians teach just that. Just stating a small truth, I personally wouldn’t have added that in the list.

      What you say here is adding to the Bible, a big no-no according to the Bible (Revelation), not to mention you are just repeating what other Christians say as they try to reconcile what they were taught verses what is in the Bible. I suggest you read the whole of the Bible, cover to cover, and see for yourself what you worship.

      The story says the garden also contained the Tree of Life which the LORD GOD didn’t allow Adam or Eve to partake of and so the correct answer is that they were not immortal according to the story.

      Something else to consider. The first tempter in that story is the LORD GOD whom placed the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil together with Adam and Eve and then told them not to eat from it. That is a clear example of the LORD GOD tempting Adam and Eve.

      If you think for yourself you don’t need the Bible to say outright “and the LORD GOD tempted Adam and Eve with the Tree of Good and Evil”, You can see that is what he did by the story. Also the Bible says GOD is not the tempter of man and that means the LORD GOD is not GOD.

      The Bible also says nobody has see the face of GOD and lived, yet it also says the LORD GOD stood and talked face to face with Moses. So either Moses is not a man, or the LORD GOD is not GOD. Moses dies leaving the LORD GOD as not GOD – according to the Bible.

      Once Adam and Eve knew the difference between right and wrong, they knew they were “naked” and they were then frightened of the LORD GOD. Why would anybody be frightened of a loving GOD? They wouldn’t, but for a reason that becomes very clear if you read the whole of the Bible, they were frightened of the LORD GOD, whom as the Bible points out, is not GOD.

  3. When I read the passage of Isaiah 60:12-15, the words “cedar of Lebanon” came to my mind. I looked into it, and it is a type of conifer, or pine tree. This is a highly prized wood, and was used to build the Lord’s temple in Jerusalem, commissioned by King Solomon.
    While it is true that sometimes it seems God’s promises are forsaken, God tests us by making us wait a long while. Adam was immortal. When he entered into sin, he entered into death. With Abraham and Sarah, God promised them a son. He tested their faith my making them wait into their old age. They got so tired of waiting that Sarah offered her servant Hagar to Abraham to procreate with, and this produced Ishmael, the Father of the Arab nation. When God finally fulfilled the promise to Abraham, Sarah laughed, and said, ” Now, when I am old and all worn out?” The promised son was Isaac, and his name means “laughter.” Please reread the Isaiah verse. It is a prophesy of the Holy Temple to come.

    I was wondering the same thing. It keeps me up at night! Finally acknowledging the failed promises!!!

  5. Gregg says:

    It is possible you people have the wrong perspective on the promises? Perhaps they are simply yet unfulfilled. Perhaps the promise is misunderstood in terms of who it is really to. In short, its pretty arrogant to assume that all the promises you see as unfulfilled are really unfulfilled.

  6. Thod says:

    A day is like a thousand years to the God. How many of those first Geners made it to 1000 years or more?

    • WorkTogether says:

      Can’t use that argument here because the Bible says “Thus all the DAYS that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died.” It doesn’t say ‘Thus all the days that Adam lived were 93000 years, and he died. ‘ . In that particular story a day is a day, not 1000 years.

    whats a Ctrock?….

  8. Tony says:

    God does not keep his promises. Ask and you shall recieve. Anything you ask of the father in my name He will do. Whatsoever you ask in prayer believing you shall receive. What a ctrock.God does not care or keep his promises. Wake up people.

    • WorkTogether says:

      This is a perfect example that flies over the head of most Christians. Every year, year after year, especially at Christmas time, millions of Christians pray for peace on earth. Still no peace but then maybe, just maybe, Christian soldiers marching off to war should stop killing fellow Christians and non-Christians alike.
