Taking the Word to the World

Is Your Name in the Bible?

There is even a Personal Promise Bible presently available. You can read your name personalized in over 5,000 places in the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs.

Here are a few examples:

  • “If Kofi dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Kofi will rest in the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalms 91:1).
  • “By which He has granted to Kofi His precious and exceedingly great promises..” (2 Peter 1:4).
  • “The Lord is Kofi’s shepherd. Kofi shall not want” (Psalms 23:1).

You may never own a Personal Promise Bible but you can mentally insert your name into every promise God intended for mankind.

Promises can be placed in all kinds of categories. Basically there are only two types: conditional and unconditional.

Most promises are conditional. God says, “I’ll do this if you do that!” The condition(s) must be met in order for the promise to be fulfilled. God waits on us to do our part, so He can do His.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Unconditional promises are without conditions. God will do it no matter what we do or don’t do. Nothing can stop it.

“This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11, NIV).

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh” (Acts 2:17).

Some promises combine both.

“And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49).

The unconditional part of this promise is that the Holy Spirit was to be sent. The condition was they had to wait in Jerusalem to receive it.
