PROMISES!!!

They would drink from four cups.

Jews call these promises the four "I wills."

Exodus 6:6-7, Therefore, say to the Israelites:  "I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.  I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. 7  I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God.  Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.

God's four promises...

1.  "I will bring you out."  

2.  "I will free you."  

3.  "I will redeem you."  

4.  "I will take you as My own people."  

 

1.  "I will bring you out..."

God promises us salvation.

"He isn't trying to get the dirt off of us, He's just trying to pick us up off the ground!"    

2.  "I will free you."

God promises us deliverance.

"They were out of Egypt, but Egypt wasn't out of them."

3.  "I will redeem you."

Redeem simply means; "to put something back to its original intent."

God promises us restoration.

In other words, God is saying, "I've got to put you back to what you were supposed to be doing...because you were never created to be a slave!"  

Studies have shown that 87% of the believers today admit to not knowing what their purpose in life is.

4.  "I will take you as my own people"

God promises us fulfillment.

God promises us...

  • salvation
  • deliverance
  • restoration
  • fulfillment

Life of fulfillment!

  • Know God
  • Find Freedom
  • Discover Purpose
  • Make a Difference

Romans 4:20-21 [NASB], "yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully assured [persuaded] that what God had promised, He was able also to perform."
