The Lord Changes Not
The Lord changes not!
This is an important aspect of God's character that we should understand.
The Bible says, that He changes not from everlasting to everlasting.
When we read through the Bible, we find that God chose a people for Himself from the evil that was throughout the world. We see how He sent them prophets and teachers, and leaders to help His people as they lived nomadic lives tending their flocks. He prospered them, protected them and even fed them manna at a time when it was needed. He set out the guidelines for their eating and cleansing of the body for health and holy reasons.
The devil has changed our cultures with the introduction of many things to entice us away from God but the Bible says that while we are in the world using these things, we do not have to be of the world.
We have a God who will not change therefore His promises in the Bible are now and forever for us who believe.
Will those promises be up to our interpretation? No. God will see our need and provide how He wills. If we trust Him, and walk that Path, only good will be revealed. We will see we have a loving God. He will bring us to the Promised Land, while the devil nips at our heels all the way. But you will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, and the devil will not.
Here is an excerpt from a sermon written and preached by the great Charles Spurgeon a mighty man of God that eloquently speaks of the Immutability of God. It can be found in full on the www.spurgeon.org site.
Delivered on Sabbath Morning, January 7th, 1855, by the
REV. C. H. Spurgeon
At New Park Street Chapel, Southwark.
"I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed."—Malachi 3:6
t has been said by some one that "the proper study of mankind is man." I will not oppose the idea, but I believe it is equally true that the proper study of God's elect is God; the proper study of a Christian is the Godhead.
The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doings, and the existence of the great God whom he calls his Father.
There is something exceedingly improving to the mind in a contemplation of the Divinity. It is a subject so vast, that all our thoughts are lost in its immensity; so deep, that our pride is drowned in its infinity.
Other subjects we can compass and grapple with; in them we feel a kind of self-content, and go our way with the thought, "Behold I am wise."
But when we come to this master-science, finding that our plumb-line cannot sound its depth, and that our eagle eye cannot see its height, we turn away with the thought, that vain man would be wise, but he is like a wild ass's colt; and with the solemn exclamation, "I am but of yesterday, and know nothing."
No subject of contemplation will tend more to humble the mind, than thoughts of God. We shall be obliged to feel—
What worthless worms are we!"
But while the subject humbles the mind it also expands it. He who often thinks of God, will have a larger mind than the man who simply plods around this narrow globe.
