“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent” (Numbers 23:19).
“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” (Acts 17:24-26).
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where 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 17:30-31).
“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).
“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For [WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and [WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, is that man ordained by God, and he 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).
“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and [THEN SHALL THE END COME]” (Matthew 24:14).
