An Unchanging God

From the Desk of the Pastor

In person worship Services continue to be temporarily cancelled. We have a written plan for the church reopening which will lessen the likelihood of exposure during services. Currently the Los Angeles County guidelines call for only live streaming services or taping of services with a number of 10 or less in attendance. We will continue to monitor the situation and will make notification to members when re-opening can begin.


Continue to pray for our nation, state and city and for the hearts of those to change their positions of authority in law enforcement.

Sermon Sunday - September 13th, 2020

Sermon: An Unchanging God in a Changing World


Numbers 23:19-20


19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?


20 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.


This passage is an exchange between Balaam and Balak. It is one of the oracles issued by Balaam that God has directed him to give to Balak. Balaam is a seer that the Moabites hired to curse the Israelites. God intervened and Balaam had no choice but obey God.


God is different and separate from humans. He is transcendent beyond the realm of humanity with all of its tendencies toward falsehood, deceit, misfortune, and calamity. Therefore, he has no need to repent of any moral or ethical wickedness or misdeed. God is immutable, and his word conveys his incomparable integrity. On the other hand, Balaam and Balak were the antithesis of God, men of banal character.   Balaam’s words were ineffective before God, for as the prophet often explained, “I can speak only what Yahweh speaks to me!” On the other hand, God’s word is entirely efficacious; what he says he will do, what he speaks he will accomplish.” His word is never uttered into the void and never fails to produce what he intends (Isa 55:11).


God doesn’t lie, so all His promises and covenants are sure; He doesn’t change, so His character remains the same. He isn’t weak but is able to fulfill what He promises; nobody can manipulate Him or control Him. God was with the people of Israel and reigned as their King.


The point of the verse is that God’s truthfulness and unchangeableness guarantee the blessings of God’s people. God does not lie nor change His mind (Numbers 23:19). God is not like man who sometimes does lie and change his mind.


God’s faithfulness guarantees the promises to His people. God speaks and acts; He promises and fulfills. When God says something He carries it through. He acts and does exactly what He says.
