“The Unchangeableness of God’s Word”

Hebrew 13:8


The assurance in prayer

THE ASSURANCE IN PRAYER

  • There are assurances that we have from God that he will hear and answer our prayers.

    • God is not a man so does he lie.

    • He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it out? (Num. 23:19).

Dr. Ralph Godfrey Sr.

THE ASSURANCE IN PRAYER

  • When one wants to give assurance to their word, they usually take an oath.

  • Men swear by a greater(than themselves) and with them in all disputes.

  • The oath taken for conformation is the final ending of all strife.

  • God also in his desire to show more convincingly and beyond doubt to those who were to inherit the promise, the unchangeableness of his purpose and plan meditatedwith an oath.

  • So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.

    • (Heb.6:18).
