God Promises His Word Does Not Change - (Hebrews 6:17-18)
Bible Promise
You can hold on to the hope that I will not change what I have promised.

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

Reading Notes
One of the many attributes of God is His immutability, this means He never changes. And most importantly for us, this means God's love toward us and His promises given to us, promises like His grace and His forgiveness through faith in Jesus alone, will never change. Another one is His omniscience, this means He knows everything, from the beginning to the end. There is nothing God does not know, and there is nothing we can ever do that will surprise God. God knows how history will end, and God knows what's in the hearts of men. There are many more attributes of God like His love, His omnipotence and His sovereignty, and these attributes should bring comfort, confidence and joy to the hearts of Christians, those who are children of God because of our faith in Christ. But most of all it should bring hope. Because we now have the hope and the guarantee of a future spent with Jesus in heaven, and the joy of knowing God's promises never change and He will never take them away from us. Moreover, a confidence in knowing because of God's sovereignty and power, nothing can take us from the hands of God.

Therefore, because of our faith in Christ, we have the guarantee of eternal life through our faith alone in Him, because we have the promises of God. Promises which were proven to us by the resurrection of Jesus and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The resurrection of Christ Jesus our Lord, is the guarantee of the hope we have in Him. And because of His resurrection and ascension, we were given the Holy Spirit to all who believe, Jew first and also the Gentiles. Moreover, it's the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, who keeps us and builds us in Christ, until that time when we see Jesus face to face. It's the Holy Spirit who builds within us the joy, hope and expectation of seeing Jesus and spending eternity with Him. Because of God's work in our hearts and minds, we have hope, we hope for the glorious appearing of Jesus returning for his saints which Paul calls, "the blessed hope." A hope which rests on the firm foundation of God Himself. Knowing that when He told us we were saved by grace, through faith alone in Jesus alone, it was His immutable promise. And unlike men who often make promises swearing by something greater than themselves, there is no one greater than God. He alone is sovereign over all things. He alone created the foundations of the universe and He alone holds it together through His spoken word and in Him there is no shadow of turning.
