God's Marvelous Mountains #5


On the Heights – God’s Marvelous Mountains #5

We sang – Standing on the Promises by Robert Kelso Carter as our first hymn.

  1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
    Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
    Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
    Standing on the promises of God.
    • Refrain:
      Standing, standing,
      Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
      Standing, standing,
      I’m standing on the promises of God.
  2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
    When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
    By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  3. Standing on the promises I now can see
    Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
    Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  4. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
    Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
    Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
    Standing on the promises of God.
  5. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
    List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call,
    Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
    Standing on the promises of God.

Some of the great promises of God: John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9, Psalm 23:1, 6, John 14:1-3.

We have been “On the Heights” studying “God’s Marvelous Mountains”. We have been on:

Moriah – The Mountain of Faith – Abraham

Carmel – The Mountain of Prayer, Mountain of Power – Elijah

Herman – The Mountain of Glory – Jesus’ transfiguration

Calvary – The Mountain of Love.

Finally, we come to the Mount of Olives, the Mountain of Promise, where we see some great ones that come from this Mountain just a short distance from Jerusalem.

PROMISE OF REST – Luke 10:36-42

Martha was anxious. Mary was not.

Mary sat at Jesus’ feet and listened. Martha did not.

Psalm 46:10-11 – Be still and know that I am God…

Isaiah 50:4-5

PROMISE OF RESURRECTION – John 11:23-26, 39-44

Jesus promised that He is “the resurrection and the life.”

Jesus proved it by raising Lazarus from the dead.

PROMISE OF REIGN – Matthew 21:1-9, Zechariah 9:9

Also note that Jesus great prophecy discourse was made on the Mount of Olives. Matthew 24:3, Matthew 25:31

THE PROMISE OF RESOLVE – Matthew 26:36-54

It was Jesus’ promise of resolve that made Him successful before the Cross, at the Cross, and beyond the Cross.

Jesus taught us to pray “Thy will be done.” Matthew 6:10

THE PROMISE OF RETURN – Acts 1:9-12, Zechariah 14:1-5, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Jesus rose from the dead.

Jesus will return to the Mount of Olives.

Jesus will first return for His Church.
