Repentance:

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent” (Numbers 23:19).

“Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent. Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:29-31).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God: “…that man whom he hath ordained…” says: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “…except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5). “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
