GOD'S IMMUTABILITY Like 0 Twitter Mishael T Follow Aug. 7, 2016, 5:12 p.m. in Religion Views: 827 Like us on facebook GOD'S IMMUTABILITY “and this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.” If we are His children...we love Him. If we have wisdom... we fear Him, but if we know Him, He lives within us and we become imitators of Him, abounding in love, righteousness and holiness. My brothers and sisters, there is comfort in knowing God. Great is His faithfulness towards us. Although, He reigns over the vastness of the universe, He is mindful of that which He reached down and formed out of the dust. He nurtures His children to grow in faith, love and spiritual maturity and to increase ever in number. Through His Holy Spirit, He speaks to us with love, kindness and understanding, for He knows our heart. His love for us is beyond our understanding. It is unending and unchanging. To know Him is to be humbled by His greatness--His matchless power and might--His creativity--His compassion--His joy--His patience and more. To know Him is to understand that He never changes He will be who, what, where, that which He will be. He always has the same character and power, He is the same God manifested in His Son and His Holy Ghost, which we know as the Trinity. I like to use the analogy of cutting a piece of cake to explain the Trinity and God's Immutability. Cut a piece of cake from a whole cake and each piece is still comprised of the same ingredients. It has changed form, but it is still the same cake, with the same flavor and characteristics. So it was when God created the Trinity. He imparted His Word and Power in the form of Christ and the Holy Spirit. Each is still God, unchanged, having His character and power, but different form. The Old Testament shows us God's character. He has not changed today. If we surrender to God's Will, that same character will be manifested in us, through His Holy Spirit. Those who do not understand the Trinity may perceive Jesus Christ as taking away from God's glory. Like the Pharisee, their lack of understanding or hardened hearts may tell them that Jesus' claim to be God's Son is blasphemous. Many religions see Christian worship of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as polytheism. Many are confused by Jesus' claim that the Father is in Him and He is in the Father. This is where mustard seed faith and spiritual vision are essential to finding truth and escaping darkness. To understand the Trinity, one must believe and acknowledge that we are spiritual beings. Our spirits came from God, just like Adam. Jesus is a spiritual being. His spirit is the Word of God manifested in the flesh, born into this world, as God's only begotten Son. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God. God's transcendent attribute makes Him free of the physical limitations of this world. Jesus said, I am the Truth, the Way and the Life. Was He taking glory and power away from God, the God we know who can impart His Word to create Heaven and Earth? We acknowledge that Heaven and Earth are of God and cannot exist without Him. Jesus said the Father is in Me and I am in the Father. Jesus professed to be of God. Was He blaspheming against the God who made us from dust in His image and breathed His breath of life into us? We are of God, each sent with a plan and a purpose. We can not limit the power of God or what He chooses to do for man nor whom He chooses to bless or to give life. If Jesus took away from God's glory, honor and power, then, there was no truth in Him. Yet, He always honored and glorified His Father. His life's pathway, shined a light to the Kingdom of God and everlasting life. His death showed His complete obedience and His love for His Father and His children. A NEW CREATION "God breathed life into the first Adam. Into the second Adam, Jesus Christ, God breathed His all powerful Word, that through His Son, man can become a new creature and have eternal life." God walked among Adam and Eve in the garden, He walked through the camp of Israel. He has shown us that He has desire and authority to live amongst His creation. He reveals himself to man in many forms. His wisdom and love knows what is needed for man. As men had disregard for God's laws, God moved to the next stage of His plan for the salvation of His creations. So, why didn't God give us His Holy Spirit when He created the first man? God doesn't make mistakes. In the beginning, God was with Adam, just as the disciples were with Jesus. who, like God, cast His Light around them. Adam was without sin. The character of God's love is not possessive, but extends free will in Heaven and on Earth. Like man, many of the angels did not appreciate what they had been given and rebelled. As conquerors of the world, our victories against darkness become their saving grace, saints who will one day judge the fallen. We are children and soldiers who have learned the perils of darkness and have chosen to serve a righteous God. We are in the midst of a spiritual and heavenly battle, which will one day come to an end when Christ's army defeats the darkness. Why not now? That which is everlasting must be tempered to last and when it is finished, it can not be undone. He who holds the key of David will shut the door and no one else will open it. "We must see Truth, as we see light, although it has no form, it is able to illuminate and guide us. It is able to penetrate, occupy and transform. But the light of Truth is much more, it is God's omnipresence that can not be chained or contained or bent. " John 3:11-13 (KJV) 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. When men perceive Christ only in the form of a man, then worship of Him appears to be idolatry and blasphemous. Yet, Jesus is God's manifested Word--God incarnate. The same Word that created the moon and the stars. Yet, this manifested Word, in the flesh, this Truth, was God, because the Word was there in the beginning, it IS God. Therefore, Believers do not worship flesh, but Who Christ IS. They worship God within Christ and lift Jesus up as His ONLY begotten Son, Whom GOD has counted WORTHY of our praise! John 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. God breathed life into the first Adam, into the second Adam, Jesus Christ, He breathed His all powerful Word, that through Him, man can become a new creature and have everlasting life. God Will Be What He Will Be. Believers, must live in Christ, so there is no doubt that God walks among men once again. To God Be The Glory!
