1. The significance of the Hebrew word Dm (nacham):
God is said "to change His mind" or "repent" about
something in the context of the following passages:
Genesis 6:6; Exodus 32:14; Judges 2:18; 1 Samuel
15:35; Psalm 90:13; Jeremiah 15:6; 42:10; Amos7:3, 6.
2. Since God is immutable and does not change, these
expressions are anthropopathisms which are designed
to explain divine acts of discipline in terms of human
attitudes and expressions. Hence, anthropopathisms
are used for the communication of divine attitude and
policy in man's language—the language of
3. The Greek verb getavogco (metanoeo), translated
"repent,“ means a complete change of mind and has no
4. Since metanoeo and nacham are transitive verbs, they
must have a subject and an object. Hence, the subject
changes his mind about some object in the context.
5. The salvation use of metanoeo: In each case, the
unbeliever is the subject, while the Lord Jesus Christ
is the object. In a few cases, God the Father is the
object of repentance (change of mind) because He is the
author of the divine plan, Operation Grace (Matt.
12:41; Mark 1:15; Luke 13:3, 5; 15:7, 10; 16:30-31; Acts
17:30; 20:21; 26:20; Heb. 12:17; 2 Pet. 3:9).
• Note: The unbeliever does not repent toward sin, but
toward the Savior.
6. Salvation repentance is defined as a change of attitude
toward Jesus Christ prior to or coterminous with
A. The unbeliever cannot understand spiritual phenomena
(1 Cor. 2:14), so the Holy Spirit acts as a human spirit in
the percep-tion of the Gospel (John 16:8-11; 2 Tim. 2:25).
B. The Holy Spirit makes the Gospel both yvciiatg (gnosis)
and kniyvcoatg (epignosis) in the soul of the unbeliever
thereby facilitating his change of attitude.
7. The verb, metanoeo, is also used for believers in phase
two in the following manner:
A. Change of attitude toward human good (Heb. 6:1)
B. Change of attitude in reversionism toward doctrine
(2 Cor12:21; Rev. 2:5, 16, 22; 3:19)
8. The Greek verb, iletailg Aoilat (metamelomai), is also
trans-lated "repent," which is incorrect. This verb has
an emotional connotation, indicating "regret" or "feeling
sorry for something one has done."
9. Four uses of metamelomai:
A. Regret of a previous action (Matt. 21:29).
B. Regret of Judas Iscariot (Matt. 27:3). Such regret
occurred under emotional revolt; regret has no
spiritual connotation or advantage.
C. No regrets on God's part regarding salvation and
spiritual gifts (Rom. 11:29).
D. No regrets on the Father's part regarding the
appointment of Christ as High Priest (Heb. 7:21).
10. The noun, getaivota (metanoia), meaning "change of
mind" is used in the following passages: Acts 20:21,
Romans 2:4; 2 Corinthians 7:9-10; Hebrews 6:1, 6; 2
• Dead work is called Operational death.

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no
other name under heaven given to men by
which we must be saved.”
• What faith is and what faith does is totally

3. Come again to resurrect saints and rule.
• Faith with out work is dead: James: 2:18-26, Rom.4,
Justification Sanctification Glorification

•2 Tim 1:12, “That is why I am suffering as I am.
Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom
I have believed, and am convinced that
he is able to guard what
I have entrusted to him for that day.”
•If your beliefs are not founded on the right person
it does not matter what else you believe.
• Not a blind leap into the dark
• Not just sincerity
• Faith has beginner and ender. Heb.12:2 Jesus
Heb 11:1-3, “Now faith is the substance of
things hoped for, the evidence of things not
seen. For by it the elders obtained a good
testimony. By faith we understand that the
worlds were framed by the word of God, so that
the things which are seen were not made of
things which are visible.(NKJ)”
• True faith is confident obedience to God’s word
in spite of circumstances or consequences.
1. “substance of things hoped for”
2. “the evidence of things not seen”
• “Substance”- hupostasis. Means, “to stand under or

• He chose the choicest lamb as an offering and
brought it the place of sacrifice.
• True faith looks for an opportunity to worship!
• Faith Caused Enoch to Walk with God (5-6)
Heb 11:5-6, “By faith Enoch was taken from this life,
so that he did not experience death; he could not be
found, because God had taken him away. For before he
was taken, he was commended as one who pleased
God. And without faith it is impossible to please God,
because anyone who comes to him must believe that he
exists and that he rewards those
who earnestly seek him.
• Gen 5:21-24-
• Hebrew “walked”- closely and continually with God
• Key- “he pleased God”
• Faith caused Noah to work for God

A. God is One in essence: the Oneness of God or the glory of God
refers to His essence (John 10:30).
B. The Trinity is One in essence, but three separate
C. All of the characteristics of divine essence are eternally
resident in God, but not all are manifest at one time.
2. Examples of how divine essence is manifest.
1. In salvation: love
2. In God's plan: omniscience and sovereignty
3. In God's will: sovereignty
4. In faithfulness: immutability and veracity
5. In God's revelation: veracity and omniscience
6. In judgment: righteousness and justice.
7. In resurrection: eternal life.
3. The characteristics of the essence of God.
A. Love: the most important overall concept in the
essence of God.
1.God is eternal and unchangeable love. God's love never
diminishes or increases (1 John 4:8b; 4:16).
2. God's love exists with or without a created object be-
cause God loves his own perfect character
3. God's love needs no response, no reassurance, no
dem-onstrations of faithfulness from its object.
4. God's love can never be compromised because it
oper-ates on His righteousness, His absolute
perfection, and His justice, His absolute fairness.
5. The love of God is expressed in three categories:
a. Divine self-love: Each member of the Trinity loves His own
righteousness and loves the other two members of the Godhead,
who possess equivalent right-eousness.
b. Divine personal love: God personally loves every be-liever
because we possess the perfect, imputed right-eousness of God
(Rom. 8:39; cf., 2 Cor. 5:21).
c. Divine impersonal love: God loves every unbeliever with
impersonal love (John 3:16) because His love depends on His
own righteousness and justice, not the merit or attractiveness of
1. God is the Supreme Being of the universe (Deut. 4:39; 1 Sam.
2:6-8; 1 Chron. 29:11; 2 Chron. 20:6; Ps. 83:18; Isa. 45:5-6; Acts
2. King of heaven and earth (Ps. 47:2; 93:1a; Matt. 6:13; Heb. 8:1; Rev.
3. Eternal (Ps. 93:2), infinite (Ps. 8:1; Acts 5:39; Heb. 6:13), and self-
determining (Job 9:12; Ps. 115:3; 135:6; Prov. 21:1; Dan. 4:35).
4. Expression of divine volition (Isa. 46:10b; Eph. 1:5) re-sulting in the
plan for humanity (Ps. 24; Heb. 6:17).

(Deut.32:4a; 2 Sam. 22:31a; Ps. 119:137b; 145:17; Dan. 9:14; Rev.
1. It is impossible for God to do anything unfair. God's judg-ments
are perfect. Justice administers the penalty which
righteousness demands (Deut. 32:4; 2 Chron. 19:7; Job 37:23;
Ps. 19:9; 50:6; 58:11; 89:14; Isa. 45:21; Jer. 50:7; Rom. 3:26;
Heb. 10:30-31; 12:23).
2. Divine justice is best exemplified in the plan of redemp-tion:
a. The Lord Jesus Christ, through His vicarious, effica-cious
spiritual death (1 Pet. 2:24), transferred the guilt of all sinners
(Rom. 5:12; 6:23) upon himself, and this satisfied the perfect
justice of the Father.
b. God is now free to pardon and justify the sinner who
accepts His saving grace (Rom. 3:21-28; 4:5; 8:1)
c. God is equally free to justly condemn all who reject Christ as
Savior (John 3:18, 36; 5:28-30).
d. The basis of the unbeliever's indictment is his works, never his

reveals Himself" (Ex. 3:14; John 8:58).

end (Deut. 32:40; 33:27; Job 36:26; Ps. 9:7; 90:2; 102:27; 135:13;
Lam. 5:19; Hab. 3:6; John 1:1-4; 1 Tim. 1:17; 1 John 5:11; Rev.
1:8; 21:6; 22:13).
3. The believer who expresses faith alone in Christ alone receives
eternal life (John 3:16; 10:28-29; 1 John 5:11) and eternal
assurance (John 8:51; 14:1-3).
4. The unbeliever who rejects Christ receives eternal judgment
(Matt. 25:46a; John 8:24).
1. God knows all the knowable. His infinite knowledge is not
subject or confined to time (1 Sam. 2:3; Job 26:6; 31:4; 34:21;
37:16; 42:2b; Ps. 139:1-6, 12; 147:4; Jer. 16:17; Ezek. 11:5; Matt.
10:29-30; Heb. 4:13).

51:15; Nah. 1:7; Matt. 6:8; Rom. 8:27; 11:33; 1 John 3:20).

41:26; 42:9; 43:9; 46:10; Acts 2:23; 15:18; 1 Pet. 1:2a).
4. As God, the Lord Jesus Christ knew all things and all men
(Matt. 9:4; John 2:24; 19:28; 21:17).
5. God has always known about every believer: (Job 23:10; Matt.
6:31-32; John 13:7; Rom. 8:28; Col. 1:10; James1:5; 3:17).
1. God is all-powerful, limitless in ability, compatible with His
holy character (Gen. 17:1; 18:14; Job 26:7; 42:2; Ps. 24:8; 93:1;
