Num. 23:19, “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?”

Jer. 18:8, “If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them” …10, “If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.” Jer. 26:3, “If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings.”

We can see that the change is relational, He being a living God. And to state further that even if God changes His mind, He doesn’t change His character. He is still Himself.

So we being the children of God are meant to live a dynamic life based on the Spirit of God and not being primordial in our mindset based on some old fables of that which is called Doctrines of the Fathers.

See what Jesus told the Jews of His days;

Matt 5: 27, “Ye have heard that it was said by THEM OF OLD, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

Matt 5: 31, “IT HATH BEEN SAID, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

32 “BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.”

Matt. 5:33, “Again, YE HAVE HEARD that it hath been SAID BY THEM OF OLD, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: 34 BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne.”

So you see, there is a realm of “you have heard” and “it was said of them of OLD,” walking by the dictates of yesterday ‘manna’ that cannot suffice for today which is “BUT I SAY.” This supersedes the first realm though they are all the words of God. This is the realm of the fresh Word and instructions from the Lord.

It is called the realm of the PROCEEDING word, not that God has changed in His character and mind but just in His method. So holding to that which is written or said of them of old means you are walking behind time in a primordial mindset in the realm that God has left off.

Jesus would put it this way;

Matt. 4:3, “And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDEDTH out of the mouth of God.”

And this is what builds and describes the faith that pleases God. “So then FAITH cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” for “…Without faith it is impossible to please him (God)…” (Rom. 10:17; Heb. 11:6a).

Friends walking with the current light of God’s Word enables you to overcome the primordial spirit just like Abraham did, hence he would not sacrifice Isaac.

In this new season, therefore, hearing God for yourself is very pertinent. And that will prevent you from falling into the hands of false prophets with their merchandising approach and ways to rob the innocent sheep.

The End.
