It was impossible for God to lie

JEHOVAH is the " God of truth." Lying lips are an abomination unto the Lord. What he hates in others can never be found in himself. He cannot deceive, therefore his word may be relied on. He cannot go from bis word, therefore it may be confidently trusted. He has threatened sinners, and his word must be fulfilled, for it is "impossible for God to lie." "The wicked shall be turned into hell, with all the nations that forget God." Of the man that loves sin, that lives in sin, it is said, " The Lord will not spare him, but the anger of the Lord and his jealousy shall smoke against that man." This is awful! It is tremendous. It must be realized, for it is " impossible for God to lie." He has given many, exceeding great and precious promises to his people; and they must all be made good. He will perform them, and not one jot or tittle of them shall fail. He will give grace and glory, and no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly; for he hath promised it, and it is impossible for God to lie. This truth is like the pillar of fire and cloud of old, it gives light to God's Israel, but it is darkness to the Egyptians.
What Christ hath said, must be fulfilled,
On this firm rock believers build;
His word must stand, his truth prevail,
And not one jot, one tittle fail.
