He Who Never Changes

In this world of constant change it is good, great, and marvelous to know, yea, even promised us, that GOD does not change.  Here are the words from GOD to Malachi the prophet…

“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” Malachi 3:6  (KJB)

The words are very similar in the New Testament book of Hebrews speaking of Jesus the Son of God…

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8

Of Malachi 3:6 Alexander MacLaren has written…

“The more directly Messianic part of this prophecy is closed in Mal_3:6 by a great saying, which at once gives the reason for the coming and for its severe aspect of witness against sin. The unchangeableness of God, which is declared in His very name, guarantees the continued existence of Israel. As Paul says in regard to the same subject, ‘The calling of God is without change of purpose’ (on His part). But it is as impossible that God should leave them to their sins, which would destroy them, as that He should Himself consume them. Therefore He will surely come; and coming, will deliver from evil. But they who refuse to be so delivered will forfeit that title and the pledge of preservation which it implies.” From Alexander MacLaren’s EXPOSITIONS OF HOLY SCRIPTURE

Let us follow Jesus Christ, believe Him, trust Him.  He is Lord and Savior; and He does not change to suit the fads, whims, or sins of Adam kind.
