It has been said that there are 7000 promises from GOd in the Word of God. I am going to need your help here to find them.

OK, I'll go first, think it's best to do it orderly so will start with Torah, B'resheet 1

Now I could be wrong but I am a logical thinker so the first I see a 'promise' which we should establish a definition first:


  1. A declaration assuring that one will or will not do something; a vow.
  2. Something promised.
  3. Indication of something favorable to come; expectation: a promise of spring in the air.
  4. Indication of future excellence or success: a player of great promise.
So with that established I start at verse 11:

11 God said, "Let the earth put forth grass, seed-producing plants, and fruit trees, each yielding its own kind of seed-bearing fruit, on the earth"; and that is how it was.
The promise is in the seed to reproduce itself.

Of course you could argue that G-d said let there be........ and there was..........., each was a promise too so I guess you can add all those in if you want.

And Visionary, where did you hear this from ?

2nd promise Chapter 2

16 ADONAI, G-d, gave the person this order: "You may freely eat from every tree in the garden 17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. You are not to eat from it, because on the day that you eat from it, it will become certain that you will die."
3rd promise the Messianic Promise

14 ADONAI, God, said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all livestock and wild animals. You will crawl on your belly and eat dust as long as you live. 15 I will put animosity between you and the woman, and between your descendant and her descendant; he will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel."
4th:
16 To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pain in childbirth. You will bring forth children in pain. Your desire will be toward your husband, but he will rule over you."
5th promise
17 To Adam he said, "Because you listened to what your wife said and ate from the tree about which I gave you the order, 'You are not to eat from it,' the ground is cursed on your account; you will work hard to eat from it as long as you live. 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat field plants. 19 You will eat bread by the sweat of your forehead till you return to the ground - for you were taken out of it: you are dust, and you will return to dust."
6th promise - Chapter 4

6 ADONAI said to Kayin, "Why are you angry? Why so downcast? 7 If you are doing what is good, shouldn't you hold your head high? And if you don't do what is good, sin is crouching at the door - it wants you, but you can rule over it."
7th promise
11 Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood at your hands. 12 When you farm the ground it will no longer yield its strength to you. You will be a fugitive, wandering the earth."
8th Promise

15 ADONAI answered him, "Therefore, whoever kills Kayin will receive vengeance sevenfold," and ADONAI put a sign on Kayin, so that no one who found him would kill him.
Chapter 6 Promise 9

3 ADONAI said, "My Spirit will not live in human beings forever, for they too are flesh; therefore their life span is to be 120 years."
10th Promise

7 ADONAI said, "I will wipe out humankind, whom I have created, from the whole earth; and not only human beings, but animals, creeping things and birds in the air; for I regret that I ever made them." ...................13 God said to Noach, "The end of all living beings has come before me, for because of them the earth is filled with violence. I will destroy them along with the earth........................17 "Then I myself will bring the flood of water over the earth to destroy from under heaven every living thing that breathes; everything on earth will be destroyed.
11th Promise chapter 7

4 For in seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; I will wipe out every living thing that I have made from the face of the earth." .......................10 After seven days the water flooded the earth.................12 It rained on the earth forty days and forty nights
21 All living beings that moved on the earth perished - birds, livestock, other animals, insects, and every human being, 22 everything in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life; whatever was on dry land died. 23 He wiped out every living thing on the surface of the ground - not only human beings, but livestock, creeping animals and birds in the air. They were wiped out from the earth; only Noach was left, along with those who were with him in the ark.
Now these can probably be broken up if need be.

That is Genesis 1-7

This all started me to thinking while I was driving home listening to a christian radio where somewhere in the middle of a sermon it was mentioned that there was a man who counted all the promises in the Bible and found 7000.

Hence... the thread... can we find them?

Great start Zayit...

I included the promise and in some cases the fulfillment, maybe I should break them up?

We may if we find enough to be able to bunch them together.. like those that are regarding the seed of promise. ... or should I say the promise of seed.

Acts 7:5
And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.

Acts 13:23
Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:

Romans 4:13
For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

Romans 4:16
Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

Romans 9:8
That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

Galatians 3:16
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Galatians 3:19
Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

Galatians 3:29
And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
