God Always Keeps His Word

God Always Keeps His Word

It’s amazing how words change in their meaning.  A slang term used in the 1940’s means something entirely different today.  For instance, a “deadbeat” was someone who bought things on credit, or a waitress was called a “biscuit shooter.”

But God does not change.  Malachi 3 states “for I am the Lord, I do not change.”

Isaiah tells us that the the word of God will stand forever.  What God said was going to happen, did happen.  And today, what he says will happen, will happen, but it happens when God wants it to happen.  Just because something may be slow in coming doesn’t mean that it is not going to happen.  In 2 Kings Jezebel went many years before the judgment and punishment of God came to her.  Don’t be fooled by time, it does not mean that God has forgotten it.  We never get by with sin.  After death we will face judgement and have to account for all.

We don’t naturally drift toward holiness, we drift toward compromise and call it tolerance. Everyone loves going to grandma’s house, not this…
