God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Ex 23:19 KJV)
The Amplified version put it this way; God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken and will He not make it good and fulfill it?
I remembered when I was young, our parents used to hammer it to our ears that;
(i) We should never make any promise we can’t fulfill.
(ii) Promise is a debt which must be paid.
(iii) Unfulfilled promise is a sin because it implies you have lied.
(iv) Anybody making unfulfilled promises is unfaithful and should not be trusted.
Season of Light
Darkness is a platform for perpetrating evil because light is its greatest enemy. The whole world is ruled by the power of darkness and under the control of the evil one.
We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one. -1 John 5:19 NLT
Since devil is the god of this world, he has blinded the minds and eyes of those that are yet to be saved from the light.
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. - 2 Cor.4:4 KJV
We have been blinded and most of the time engulfed by our circumstances which prevent us from seeing and understanding the gospel and the glory of Christ. We are in the end time, God will pour out His Spirit on all people, there will be abundance of strange acts, signs and wonders.
