God Does NOT Change!

Before attempting to study The Scriptures, it is very important to understand the basic attributes of God.  Every scripture that is read can only be understood if the unchangeable attributes of God carry through that scripture to the understanding of it.

God is perfect and He does not change.

2 Samuel 22:31

As for God, His way is perfect; The word of YHVH is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

Psalm 119:96
I have seen the consummation of all perfection, Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
Matthew 5:48
Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
Deuteronomy 32:4
He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.
Psalm 19:7-8

The law of YHVH is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of YHVH is sure, making wise the simple;
The statutes of YHVH are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of YHVH is pure, enlightening the eyes;

That said and understood, since YHVH God is perfect, YHVH God does NOT change AND The Scriptures declare that He does not change.
If YHVH God were to change then how could He be depended on by us at any given time?
If YHVH God does not maintain His perfection from moment to moment and everlasting then the result would be chaos as many people would have just as many different views and interpretations about Him and how to gain eternal life with Him.  Sort of sounds like many different denominations who vastly differ in their beliefs about Him, doesn’t it?
Believing is a changing God is pretty much how all the world’s religions got started.  First there is true faith like that of Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Messiah and others THEN people come along who want to think God changed the rules and subsequently a new religion springs up out of nowhere.

Numbers 23:19

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

Malachi 3:6

For I am YHVH, I do not change

James 1:17   

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Hebrews 6:17-18   

Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the unchangeability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, 18 that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might[a] have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.

Hebrews 13:8  

The Word (Yeshua Messiah the living Torah) is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Isaiah 40:8  

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.

Psalm 119:89  

Forever, O YHVH, your word is fixed in the heavens.

Psalm 33:11

The counsel of YHVH stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations.
