FATHER Changes Not

In Malachi chapter 3, FATHER spoke:

1 “Behold, I send My messenger, ​​And he will prepare the way before Me. ​​And the Lord, whom you seek, ​​Will suddenly come to His temple, ​​Even the Messenger of the covenant, ​​In whom you delight. ​​Behold, He is coming,” ​​Says the LORD of hosts.

​2 ​​“But who can endure the day of His coming? ​​And who can stand when He appears? ​​For He is like a refiner’s fire ​​And like launderers’ soap.

3 ​​He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; ​​He will purify the sons of Levi, ​​And purge them as gold and silver, ​​That they may offer to the LORD ​​An offering in righteousness.

​4 ​​“Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem ​​Will be pleasant to the LORD, ​​As in the days of old, ​​As in former years.

5 ​​And I will come near you for judgment; ​​I will be a swift witness ​​Against sorcerers, ​​Against adulterers, ​​Against perjurers, ​​Against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans, ​​And against those who turn away an alien— ​​Because they do not fear Me,” ​​Says the LORD of hosts.

​6 ​​“For I am the LORD, I do not change; ​​Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.

Exploitation of the masses is occurring as I write.  The current Babylonian system is designed to enrich the wealthy at the expense of the wage earners, widows, and orphans.  FATHER is fully aware of our situation and will bring forth appropriate judgment on our behalf.  HIS Love does not change nor does HIS Word thus we can fully trust HIS Word to come to pass on our behalf.  FATHER’S Word will guide us through whatever judgment is coming to the current system.  HIS Love and protection for us changes not.

Jesus is no different, for it is written by THE SPIRIT in Hebrews chapter 13:

8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

If FATHER doesn’t change and Jesus Christ doesn’t change, then THEIR Words are as applicable today as when they were first spoken.  The miracle-working power contained in The Word hasn’t changed either.  Miracles are just as applicable today as when they were first recorded in Scripture.  This is what differentiates us from the religions of the world.  Our Savior is alive and performing miracles today.  Mark recorded by THE SPIRIT in chapter 16:

19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.

20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.

Jesus qualified who His disciples were in John chapter 8:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then], you are My disciples indeed.

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

As you and I abide in His Word, we too are disciples and should expect to walk in the same manner as the disciples in the Book of Acts with Jesus confirming His Word through accompanying signs.  Those signs will not be some generic sign in another country which does not specifically confirm His Word, but will be signs that will draw people to the Gospel we are preaching.

Whose teachings are you following?  Do they promote Christ and abiding IN HIM, or do they promote something else?  We must be careful in what we emphasize in our daily life.  Let us exalt Jesus Christ and His ministry through us in our daily affairs.  FATHER’S Word does not change and HIS Word is what we should count on as we conduct our daily business.  Let us put our faith and trust in HIS Word made flesh, Jesus Christ Who changes not.
