I AM PERSUADED THAT HE IS ABLE:

TO NEVER MAKE A MISTAKE (part 2)

Numbers 23:19 “ God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent:”

As we learned yesterday, this phrase means that God will never be in the position of having to admit that He made a wrong decision, wrong move, or had a wrong motive. He will never have anything to repent of or for.

We also learn here that not only is God not a man, He is not the son of a man either. If He was, He would have man’s DNA passed down. Not only does He not have human flaws, He had no human lineage. We also know that God is a Trinity. He consist of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. If God is not the son of a human, then Jesus is not either. Jesus was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:23). In the conception process of reproduction, life is given through the father. So because of this, when Jesus was born on earth, He could be God and man. Joseph was not the agent giving life to Jesus. Only God the Father was. If Jesus had any human flaws, He would not have been the pure, perfect sacrifice needed to redeem us from our sins. Since God the Father gave life to Jesus, if God the Father had any human lineage, or human flaws, then Jesus would automatically have had them also. But because God is perfect, Jesus was perfect, and our sins are covered by His perfect, pure, Holy, non-human blood.

Excuse me while I have a little fit, “HALLELUJAH, GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES”.

Remember that today. Everyone in your life makes mistakes, but God never does!
