Thesis:The fact that our enemies can still do rather significant damage to us makes it all the more necessary that we "buy" the promises.

Introduction:Last week we looked into the five specific ways that the Spirit insisted through Zacharias that Yahweh means what He says. This reality is even more important than we think because the truth is that Yahweh means more than He says. What I mean by that is this: there can be no promise made that does not inherently include every particle of the Truth. That means that Yahweh nevers says anything that does not spring out of, and in harmony with, omniscience. But, neither has Yahweh ever said all that can be said in the light of omniscience. But this means that everything Yahweh does say has necessary implications for us in unstated ways. This morning I want to address the issue of the strength of faith as a matter related to "unstated necessary implications". I want to do this on the basis of the words of Zacharias regarding the "sworn holy covenant".
