REPENT! Change your mind. Change your way of living. Change your way of doing things.

Isn't there a verse in the Bible where God says, "For I am the LORD, I change not..." Malachi 3:6? What does that mean? Does it mean that God never changes His mind? Does it mean that God never reverses a decision? In church I was taught that, "God said it and that settles it." In other words, it was a done deal.

But what about those verses where God did change His mind. What about the verses that state that God repented. Genesis 6:6 says, And it repented the LORD that he made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. Verse 7 says And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

And what about when King Hezekiah who was sick unto death and was told by the Prophet Isaiah that God said set your house in order for you shall die and not live? II Kings 20:1. The king then turned his face to the wall after hearing that his time was up and prayed and God healed him and gave him 15 more years to live. Wasn't that a change of mind on God's part? Verses 2-6. 

So does this mean that you can pray away impending doom and disasters? Does God change His mind or doesn't He? Selah
