    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.

    So by number and scriptural text let's count all the promises that we can frind from God.

    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:


    So with that established I start at verse 11:

    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

    3rd promise the Messianic Promise

    4th:
    5th promise
    6th promise - Chapter 4

    7th promise
    8th Promise

    Chapter 6 Promise 9

    10th Promise

    11th Promise chapter 7

    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.
