God is truthful

Every Word of God is true. God keeps every promise He has made. Therefore we should believe every single Word of life exactly and in its entirety. By fulfilling all the conditions without reservation, we will also obtain all His promises in their entirety. There are no exceptions. God is not partial. He cannot lie and He cannot fail. God’s Word is the only thing that is completely reliable! Who then should not believe all of it?
What we have faith for will become true when we believe without doubting; then we will receive it. It cannot fail to come to pass. It may take some time, but it will come! He who humbles himself will be exalted! There is no way around it. It will happen as surely as God is alive. And if one dares to get conceited or, in other words, exalt oneself, then as surely as God is alive, he will be humbled! God will faithfully see to it. It is unavoidable!
Give and it will be given to you. That means: from your heart and with joy. Then there is no other possibility than that it will be given to us. God Himself will see to it with a never-failing faithfulness! People fail first in one thing and then in another. There is no such thing with God.
We can take all of God’s words, all of the Words of life, as examples. They are fulfilled automatically without interruption. Why do most believers read so pitifully little and so pitifully superficially in God’s Word? Because they either do not know or do not believe that it is fact. There is little help in reading the Word and in hearing it if one does not have a living faith in its unfailing reliability, or if one does not fulfill the conditions, or if one does not even know or see that there are conditions for everything that has been promised!
“All things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23. “According to your faith let it be to you.” Matthew 9:29. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him …” Hebrews 11:6.
