He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
The nineteenth-century Irish clergyman Robert Traill once pondered the “He” in Hebrews 10:23. Who did the writer have in mind? God the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit?
“It is no great matter,” Traill said. “We find … That the promises that are the ground of the Christian’s faith, are the promises of the Father, as the author … We find the promises ascribed unto Jesus Christ, and He is the promiser. So when He left His people and went out of this world, He left them with the … abundance of promises…. The promises are also given by the Holy Ghost; He is called the Spirit of promise.”1
All three Persons of the Godhead work in concerted effort to make and keep every promise in the Bible. God the Father ordains them. Christ purchased them for us with His blood. The Holy Spirit brings them to fruition in our daily experiences.
Broken promises are the source of pain here on earth, but God is changeless. His promises are as sure as His immutable nature; and they are tripled in power for they come from Him who is One, yet Three.
Believe me, there are times when the only thing that keeps me going is a promise from God. Charles Swindoll, in Start Where You Are 1. Robert Traill, The Works of the Late Reverend Robert Traill, Volumes 3-4.
