“We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.” - 1 John 3:14.

Comment:

Love is the key to achieving good neighbourliness.  If we love one another, we will think and do good to each other. No one will want to hurt his neighbour and the world will be a much happier place. Jesus Christ made it clear during his days on earth that love is the greatest of all commandments, as it is written: “And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.” –Mark 12:28-34.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. - James 1:17 .

Comment:

The Almighty God is constant and consistent. With God there "is no variableness, neither shadow of turning". -James 1: 17. See also Malachi 3: 6.

Surely, God shall perform all what He has purposed. He does not speak in vain. He declared: "For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” - Isaiah 55:10, 11.

Even those being used by the devil know that the purpose of God cannot be changed. When Balak king of Moab hired Balaam the soothsayer to curse the children of Israel, he found to his dismay that God turned the mouth of the soothsayer to bless the Israelites instead. And he confessed that he could not reverse God's blessing upon His people. He declared: "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.” (Numbers 23:19, 20) It could be seen that the intention of God in regard to His purpose of creation and what He has for His people cannot be changed. Balaam was also moved to say, “Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!” - Numbers 23:23
