"The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne." Psalm 132:11
Have you ever had anyone tell you something and they swore that they were telling you the truth only to find out that they weren't? They made, or took, an oath that what they were saying was the truth but it was a lie. This happens in our courts of law frequently-- it is called perjury (willfully telling an untruth in a court after having taken an oath or affirmation- swearing).
People may deliberately lie to you. They may even try to get you to believe the lie by enforcing it with an oath-- swearing that it is the truth. Man may lie. He may even swear that the lie is true. But God never lies. He never perjures Himself. He always tells the truth. When He swears, it is always in truth. So we never have to wonder, or worry, whether He is telling us the truth or not.
At the fall, God said He would send a Savior to bruise the head of the serpent-- He did two thousand years later when Jesus came. He promised Abraham that He would make him a great nation-- He is still doing that. He swore to David that He would set up his throne forever-- this will be fulfilled in Jesus when He returns and establishes His Kingdom on earth. Time doesn't affect God's word or His oath. It is eternal. The promises He made in the past are just as trustworthy today as when they were made. God cannot lie.
Time, circumstances, our unbelief, nothing affects the promises of God. God's word is always truth. It is immutable- does not change and is unable to be changed. God is not a man that He should lie. Therefore, we can place our trust and faith in Him and His word, because He is faithful as promised.
Have a great day. God never lies and He always swears to the truth.
