Back to Basics: God 101 – He Is Unchanging

Sadly, there are some who would teach of a god who, somehow, is ever-changing. They aspire to present him as not knowing the future, and making mere tentative plans, waiting to see what his creatures will do, so as to change his mind and will according to theirs.

This may be a god of religion, but it is not the God of Scripture. We will go back to the basics; back to a scriptural foundation of the true and living God.

Regardless of what His creatures may assert, the God of Scripture is the all-wise, all-powerful, unchanging Sovereign of His Own universe.

God Is Always the Same

… They shall be changed, but You are the same, and Your years shall have no end (Psalms 102:27).

God Does Not Change

I am the LORD, I change not (Malachi 3:6).

There Is No Variableness, or Shadow of Turning with God

… The Father of lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning (James 1:17).

God Is Not a Man that He Should Change His Mind

God is not a man, that He should fail; neither the son of man, that He should repent: has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19).

The Strength of Israel will not fail nor repent: for He is not a man, that He should repent (I Samuel 15:29).

Regardless of what His finite creatures may have to say, the infinite God of Scripture is unchanging. Period.

Rest in that.
