Unchanging

Some people tell me that there is a big difference between the God that we met in the Old Testament and the one who we get to know in the New Testament. Most of these people tend to ignore the similaries between the God John writes about in Revelation and the one they had previously seen in the Old Testament. Now scripture tells me something about God that these people wouldn’t admit if they could possibly help it: The God of Genesis is the very same God of Revelation and isn’t any different in the books inbetween. He hasn’t changed at all in the time since the last book of the Bible was written.

James 1:17 – (God) does not change like shifting shadows
Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
1 Corinthians 12:4-6 – same Spirit … same Lord … same God …
Romans 10:12 – The same Lord is Lord of all …

We know exactly what God expects of us. We know exactly what reward we will recieve. We know that he will not change his mind. Do you know what a blessing that is? There is no hoping, no guessing, and no worrying. Not everybody has that sort of security. They might serve their god as faithfully as humanly possible, but it does not mean that their god will accept them. So here I stand, a beloved daughter of my God who has already promised to prepare for me a place, a home, with Him. He has not failed one word of his promises, and He will not start now. My God is so great, he loves even those who think He is their enemy. He asks those who kill his children to become his children. His promises are unchanging.

One thought on “Unchanging

  1. “Most of these people tend to ignore the similaries between the God John writes about in Revelation and the one they had previously seen in the Old Testament.”Well, that’s not surprising considering most of the people who make that statement tend not to believe Revelation (or much else in the Bible for that matter).
