Faithful is He – Part 2

1Thessalonians 5:24-28 Faithful is he that called you

We note ten attributes of God from Psalm 36:4-9: Mercy – high as the heavens (Ps. 36:5). Faithfulness – far-reaching as the clouds. Righteousness – high as mountains (Ps. 36:6). Justice – deep as the abyss. Preservation – universal as existence. Kindness – excellent (Ps. 36:7). Providence – complete (Ps. 36:8). Satisfaction – rivers of pleasure (Ps. 36:9). Life – the fountain of life. Light – the source of truth.

Psalm 40:10 reads as follows: “I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation…” His faithfulness here refers to the fulfilment of the covenants and promises through Jesus Christ and His great salvation (John 1:16-17; Rom. 3:2; 9:4-5; 2Cor. 1:20).

The faithfulness of God is eternal – unto all generations. This is another scripture stating eternal generations of natural people (Gen. 8:22; 9:12; Isa. 9:6-7; 59:21; Dan. 2:44-45; 7:13-14, 18, 27; Luke 1:32-33; Rev. 11:15; 21:3-7; 22:4-5).

Two great qualities of the Messiah (Isa. 11:5 – His righteousness (Heb. 1:9) and faithfulness (Heb. 2:17; Rev. 1:5).
