THE GOD-MAN NOTES By Paul B Thomas
#03 The immutability of God
“I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”—Malachi 3:6
IMMUTABILITY: The ancient Christian doctrine of God’s immutability states that God doesn’t change, has never changed, and will never change. (Dictionary.com)
“For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed. (Malachi 3:6)
Psalm 102:25-27 “Of old You founded the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. “Even they will perish, but You endure; And all of them will wear out like a garment; Like clothing You will change them and they will be changed. “But You are the same, And Your years will not come to an end.
The unchangeable Deity. The God who keeps his promises and abides by his own word constantly and continually. What kind of God would he be if he changed as much as man changes. Man changes his preaching to suit his audience and generation, he loves to be relevant and well received. God however has the same mind, manners and mentality as he did when he approached Noah, Abraham, Jacob and now you and I. His power to perform is the same his ability to deliver is the same, his willingness Tom appear is the same. What he done for Abraham he can do for you. He is no respect or of persons.
The IMMUTABILITY is seen in his PRESENCE
Some folks will divide us from those of the faith in the bible, they say our times are different and therefore God is different, so they place us in dispensations saying that the Holy Ghost is here now and Jesus is in heaven. Of course the Holy Ghost is with us, they fail however to see that the Holy Ghost is the spirit of the LORD, he is the Lords presence. Therefore we can say Jesus is here right now And as a right now God he can do for you what he done for Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is as much present with you as he was with Enoch, because he is forever God and God is God and he can never change.
The IMMUTABILITY of God is seen in his POWER
The SAVIOUR of Peter and Paul is the GOD of the Paul. What God done in acts, he can do in Wales, What God done at Pentecost he will do in your meeting with him, we should feel God’s presence in every meeting, we should have Pentecost in every event. We should have tongues of fire and see folks baptised with the self same fire every occasion we meet as a church. Why because God is immutable and God is God and he changes not. What he has done for others he can do for you. That’s our God unchangeable.
His IMMUTABILITY is seen in his PROMISES
NOTE: promises good and bad, promises to deliver and promises to scatter, promises to curse and promises to bless, promises to destroy and promises to rebuild. Some folks reject the Old Testament saying God does not curse nations, peoples or individuals any more (Deut 28) they think God is good to everybody including his rejector’s and haters. Look again Sir, look again at today’s world with its Corona Virus, America with its constant fires around pagan cities, look again at Indonesia and the God haters who hate the true God. Nonsense it is that tells us God has changed. The believer can rest assured however that his promises are yea and amen. all of them good and bad, but hallelujah In Christ we are candidates of hope. Rest assured our destiny is good, our righteousness is of him, our life is in him. No good thing will he withhold from them that walk up rightly. That’s his promise to us and to that we have hope. Our God is Unchangeable.
