Mal. 3:6-7 "I am the Lord, and I do not change."

Mal. 3:6-7  “I am the LORD, and I do not change.  That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already completely destroyed.  Ever since the days of your ancestors, you have scorned my laws and failed to obey them.  Now return to me, and I will return to you,” says the LORD Almighty.

“I am the Lord, and I do not change.”  God is the same as He always has been and always will be.  But, do we really believe it?  Think about it for a few moments.  There is so much confusion about God floating around in the church.  Many have come to the conclusion that what we once believed to be true no longer is.  Many have taken the liberty to redefine God’s words and given meaning to them that are totally different than what has been understood in the church for many centuries. 

Many have taken the liberty to rewrite the Scriptures to suit their own agendas and opinions.  There is great effort put into changing things around so that what was once known to be sin is no longer sin.  Words and thoughts are put into God that were never revealed by God to be there.

God has not changed His mind or His Word!  God has not rewritten His Word or given man permission to do so.  God has declared once and for all what is sin and what isn’t.  We have no right to question or try to change what is clearly declared to be sin in God’s Word.  Just because we may find it hard to conform to its teachings does not mean that we have permission to dismiss it and try something else.  The Word of God is absolute truth for all people for all time. 

You will never find anything in the Word of God that is not true and applicable to life.  God’s standards for holy living, His warnings against sinning, and His promises are irrevocable and unchanging.  We will stand before Him and be judged on how we have lived according to His Word.  God will not be mocked by those who now seek to alter or disregard the Word.  We all will reap what we sow.  We choose daily whether or not we will go to heaven or hell by the way we live according to God’s Word.
