Question 423

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? If God “Knows ALL Things” how can he “Change his Mind”?


The Bible states in Hebrews 11:1…

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

In other words, there are some things that we have to just TAKE BY FAITH and accept what God HAS SAID and Believe It.

To answer the Question with a Question: “How do you explain the Trinity or the God Head?

Answer: NOBODY CAN, There is NOT ONE human being alive that can fully explain or understand HOW God can be Three individual Persons and YET BE One God, The God Head is UNCOMPREHENSIBLE to the human FINITE (Limited) mind.

To give a Very Basic Theology 101 here are a few things to keep in mind…

– FOREKNOWLEDGE: It has one element, God KNOWS ALL.

– PREDESTINATION: It has 2 elements, God Predicts, and God Fulfills.

– THE 2 COVENANTS: Conditional and Unconditional. – NOTE: there are ONLY 2

Unconditional = Salvation.

NOTHING that we do helps or earns Eternal Life, Salvation is SOLELY BASED on Christ Alone, to “Add Anything” to the Gospel (the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ) is to ADD WORKS to salvation and MAKE IT VOID.

Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Conditional = Our Service to the Lord.

Our Joy, Happiness, Blessings here on earth, and our Rewards in heaven COME FROM “Our Willingness” to put Christ first in our lives, live for him, and do his will.

This Covenant is SOLELY CONDITIONAL upon the believer.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.

John 10:10(b) I (Jesus Christ) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.


I Cannot Explain HOW God who knows all things from Eternity Past to Eternity Future and YET “Can Change his Mind”, it is HUMANLY UNEXPLAINABLE.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
