Understanding God: His Unchanging Nature

The word “immutability” comes to us through Middle English from Latin immutabilis, meaning “unable to change” (Merriam-Webster).

God Has Placed “Eternity in Man’s Heart”

Solomon said that God set eternity in the hearts of men (Eccl. 3:11).  Solomon experienced every earthly pleasure possible and made this tremendous statement.  “Eternity” refers to a deep abiding awareness of something beyond this life.   In every human soul is a God-given awareness that there is “something more” than the darkness of this world.  Michael Eaton said, “Our consciousness of God is part of ...

Can We Know That God Is Real?

We realize there will always be those who will deny the existence of God and no amount of proof will convince them otherwise.  The psalmist said, “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God” (Psa. 14:1; cf.

Have You Paused Long Enough to Realize How Wonderful God’s Word Is?

There are many inspired titles given to God’s Word by the Holy Spirit but perhaps the most precious is the “Word of God.”  The phrase the “Word of God” occurs nearly 50 times in the New Testament (Cf. Eph. 6:17; I Pet. 1:23; as well as our text, Heb. 4:12).

The Hebrew writer presented to us one of the great biblical texts on the power and ...

Do You Want To Build Your Life On That Which Is Dependable?

Guy Roberson – The great psalmist, after tossing on a sea of trouble caused by his enemies, takes his stand on the stability of God’s Word in Psalms 119:89-96.  In spite of all of the evil turning his world upside down he again dwelt on the importance of putting his trust in God’s Word because it is settled in heaven (v. 89), meaning that ...

What Role Does the New Testament Play Regarding Old Testament Prophecy?
