God: "Fooled ya!"

Blog pictures.001.jpeg
God is not running misdirection plays with His revealed purposes. He is not leading us to think He is going one way only to go another. God does not direct us to think Israel, land, and physical promises are important and part of His kingdom purposes only to shift direction and say later that these matters are no longer significant or are transcended. In Galatians 3:15 Paul said that once a covenant is ratified “no one sets it aside or adds conditions to it.” When God commits himself to a promise or covenant He does not alter what He promised.
