Sevenfold Promises And Statements In The Old Testament



Sevenfold Promises And Statements In The Old Testament

A. Sevenfold covenant/promise to Abraham
Genesis 12:2-3
1) And I will make of thee a great nation,
2) and I will bless thee,
3) and make thy name great;
4) and thou shalt be a blessing:
5) And I will bless them that bless thee,
6) and curse him that curseth thee:
7) and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
B. Sevenfold promise to Jacob
Genesis 28:13-15
And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac:
1) the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;
2) And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south:
3) and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
4) And, behold, I am with thee,
5) and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest,
6) and will bring thee again into this land;
7) for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
C. God’s sevenfold promise of deliverance to the Israelites
Exodus 6:6-8
Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and
1) I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians,
2) and I will rid you out of their bondage,
3) and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
4) And I will take you to me for a people,
5) and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
6) And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob;
7) and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.
D. Sevenfold expression of God’s name
Exodus 34:5-7
And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God,
1) merciful and gracious,
2) longsuffering,
3) and abundant in goodness and truth,
4) Keeping mercy for thousands,
5) forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin,
6) and that will by no means clear the guilty;
7) visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
E. Seven ways God says He took Israel out of Egypt
Deuteronomy 4:34
Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation,
1) by temptations,
2) by signs,
3) and by wonders,
4) and by war,
5) and by a mighty hand,
6) and by a stretched out arm,
7) and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
F. Sevenfold promise of victory and possession of the land
Joshua 21:43-45
1) And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers;
2) and they possessed it,
3) and dwelt therein.
4) And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers:
5) and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them;
6) the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.
7) There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.
G. Ruth’s sevenfold statement of faith
Ruth 1:16-17
And Ruth said,
1) Intreat me not to leave thee,
2) or to return from following after thee:
3) for whither thou goest, I will go;
4) and where thou lodgest, I will lodge:
5) thy people shall be my people,
6) and thy God my God:
7) Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.
H. Sevenfold nature of the Holy Spirit
Isaiah 11:2
1) And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him,
2) the spirit of wisdom
3) and understanding,
4) the spirit of counsel
5) and might,
6) the spirit of knowledge
7) and of the fear of the LORD;
(See also Revelation 1:4; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6)
I. 7 things the Messiah would do when He comes to the nation of Israel - the 7th is at His second coming (compare with Luke 4:18-19)
Isaiah 61:1-2
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because
1) the LORD hath anointed me
2) to preach good tidings unto the meek;
3) he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
4) to proclaim liberty to the captives,
5) and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
6) To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,
7) and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all that mourn; (This last phrase is not referred to in the passage in Luke mentioned above as the emphasis is on what Jesus did during His earthly ministry AND where He chose to stop His quoting of Isaiah from; as “the day of vengeance of our God” is referring to when Jesus comes the second time to judge this world and to reign from Jerusalem, though many people at that time did not understand this yet.
J. Seven benefits of faith, from David.
Psalm 103:2-5
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
1) Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; 
2) who healeth all thy diseases; 
3) Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; 
4) who crowneth thee with lovingkindness 
5) and tender mercies; 
6) Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; 
7) so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

    • A sermon for our times.  We will all be called to stand for the truth. But most will not be willing to hear it.
    • Poems with Power to Strengthen the Soul by Mudge   samples here: https://archive.org/details/poemswithpowerto01mudg/page/174/mode/2up?ref=ol&view=theater
    • Please check out this thread again. I updated it with new (good) versions of the PDF books. Explanation above.
    • The Song Of The Redeemed I like it when something in a passage gets explained and it opens up. I’m sure I knew some of this before (though this old brain gets forgetful), but it struck me more today. Rahab, when used as a symbol through the Old Testament, refers to Egypt. Now read this: Isaiah 51:9-10 Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? Art thou not
    • Thy Gentleness Hath Made Me Great Was just reading some poetry by king David, and came across one of my favourite verses again. Focus on the last part of this verse: Psalms 18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great. In the world’s eyes, we may not be much or accomplish much, but in God’s eyes, we are great - because of Him. Who we are in Christ never changes from day to day, so we can alwa
    • In The Day When I Cried Sometimes we think it is presumption to ask the Lord to answer a prayer today. Though if a prayer does seem more urgent, we may have asked the Lord to perfect (complete) that which concerneth us (from Psalm 138:8). If we have a need or a trouble, we may pray for it, expecting God to answer it in His own timing. But what happens if the need seems more urgent, if the trouble we are facing seems more dire, perhaps even time-sensitive? Is it presumptuous to pray, asking
    • Does God Delight In You? Psalms 18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me. If you have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ alone for salvation, you are accepted in Him by the Father - and you therefore become a child that He delights in. Proverbs 3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. We may not like the application of this second verse to ourselves, but He corrects us beca
    • Reading The Scriptures   There are two main words for know (and its forms) in the New Testament.   1) Strong’s #1492, eido. This word basically has the idea of head knowledge, knowing about something.   2) Strong’s #1097, ginosko (from the root word, gnosis, knowledge). This word has the idea of knowing about something personally, personally experiencing what you know about.   Looking up every time the word know (or a form thereof) occurs in the NT (with these ba
    • Good to see the two studies on this theme still here in the Sermons section. My websites got repeatedly hacked two years ago. We lost all content and had to rebuild from scratch. These two were ones I still hadn't put up again. A bit of copy and paste, and there we go!
    • DRAW NEAR TO GOD   Song of Songs 1:4 Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the upright love thee.   The above verse is a prayer or desire of the believer desiring to fellowship with her Lord.   I love how the Word of God uses the idea of God drawing us to Himself.   Firstly, through His death on the cross and the preaching of the G
