Perfection of God
Numbers 23:19 (KJB) 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?
Balaam is speaking in this scripture verse about the never changing eternal character of God. God is holy and righteous, far from the unappealing and dark nature of the heart of mankind. God is forever perfect, having no need of repentance or of making any change in His ways.
Whatever God speaks has already or will come to pass because His Word is meant to be fully trusted. God always makes good on His promises, whether they be for the regenerated man’s eternal benefit, or for ushering in God’s tough love and spiritual justice for those who are eternally darkened in heart.
