134 God’s Essence Is Immutable

Chorus

God’s disposition and substance are immutable.

Changes in His name and work

don’t mean His substance has changed.


Verse 1

If you say God’s work can’t change, then how would He be able

to finish His six-thousand-year management plan?

You know God is immutable, but did you also know

God is always new and He is never, never old?


Verse 2

If He can’t change, then how did He lead man to today?

And how has He done the work of two ages?

His work always moves forward, His inherent disposition

is gradually revealed to all mankind.


Chorus

Oh, God’s disposition and substance are immutable.

Changes in His name and work

don’t mean His substance has changed.

In other words, God will always be God,

and this, this will never, never change.


Verse 3

God’s disposition was hidden from man in the beginning.

Man simply had no knowledge of Him.

So God uses His work to reveal it to man.

But this does not mean it changes every age.


Verse 4

It’s not that it changes for God’s will is changing.

Rather, it’s revealed step by step, so man may know Him.

But this is not proof that God’s disposition

is not inherent or has changed by ages.


Chorus

Oh, God’s disposition and substance are immutable.

Changes in His name and work

don’t mean His substance has changed.

In other words, God will always be God,

and this, this will never, never change.


Bridge

Oh, God reveals to man what He is by the ages,

as one age can’t express His entire disposition.

“God is always new, never old” refers to His work.

“God is immutable” refers to what He has and is,

what He has and is.


Verse 5

You can’t make 6,000-year work hinge upon one point,

or curb it with dead words—such is man’s stupidity.

God is not as simple as man imagines,

and His work cannot linger in any, any one age, in any one age.


Chorus

God’s disposition and substance are immutable.

Changes in His name and work

don’t mean His substance has changed.

In other words, God will always be God,

and this, this will never, never change.
