God Does Not Change

You will sometimes hear of those who deny the wrath of God and preach the universal love of God for all men declare that what this verse in Romans 9:13 really says is ‘God loves Jacob and He loves Esau LESS.’

Now, I ask you, how does our infinite, almighty, perfect God do anything LESS than perfectly.

Is He at times LESS RIGHTEOUS…LESS HOLY…LESS JUST?

Our comfort in Christ is that He who loves His sheep HAS always loved them, WILL always love them, and loves them AS He loves Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son (John 17:23).

And to those who were told to depart form His presence, He said, “I NEVER knew you.” (Matthew 7:23).

Malachi 3:6 declares, “I am THE LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”

Our comfort is that HIS LOVE IN CHRIST is without degrees or changes, as is His wrath upon those outside of the Ark – Christ Jesus.

  1. When scripture speaks of Christ as never knowing hypocrites, it is both Jesus Christ, and the finished work of Jesus Christ that speaks. Jesus Christ knows all those whom He has created, good and bad, elect and non elect. So what knowing is being referred to but that of the work of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ knew whom He was entering the world to save, to fulfil the law on their behalf, to suffer the retributive justice of God on their behalf, having done so, all is attached to a specific people, known unto the Lord. If Jesus Christ had come to fulfill the law and to take the retributive justice of God upon His own head for the non elect, then both Christ, and the work of Christ would recognise them.
