Change (New Testament)

1 Corinthians 15 : 51 - Behold, I tell you a mystery: We all shall not sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? The sting of death is sin; and the power of sin is the law:
( 57 )
but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 7 : 12 - For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

Change (Old Testament)

Job 17 : 12 - The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that has clean hands shall be stronger and stronger. But as for you all, do you return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you. My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart. They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness. If I wait, the grave is my house: I have made my bed in the darkness.

Psalm 46 : 1 - God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change, And though the mountains be shaken into the heart of the seas; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, Though the mountains tremble with the swelling thereof. [Selah] There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. ( 5 ) God is in the midst of her; She shall not be moved: God will help her, and that right early.

Psalm 102 : 26 - They shall perish, but you (God The Maker) shall endure; Yes, all of them shall wax old like a garment; As a vesture shall you change them, and they shall be changed:

Proverbs 24 : 21 - My son, fear you Jehovah and the king; And company not with them that are given to change:

Jeremiah 13 : 22 - And if you say in your heart, Wherefore are these things come upon me? for the greatness of your iniquity are your skirts uncovered, and your heels suffer violence. Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may you also do good, that are accustomed to do evil. Therefore will I scatter them, as the stubble that passes away, by the wind of the wilderness. ( 25 ) This is your lot, the portion measured to you from me, says Jehovah; because you have forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.

Daniel 7 : 25 - And he shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High; and he shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and half a time.

Hosea 4 : 6 - My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to me: seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. As they were multiplied, so they sinned against me: I will change their glory into shame.

No change - New Testament

Acts 6 : 12 - And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him  (Stephen), and seized him, and brought him into the council, and set up false witnesses, who said, This man ceases not to speak words against this holy place, and the law: for we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered to us.( 15 ) And all that sat in the council, fastening their eyes on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.

Hebrews 12 : 14 - Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man shall see the Lord: looking carefully lest there be any man that falls short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby the many be defiled; lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one mess of meat sold his own birthright. ( 17 ) For you know that even when he afterward desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected; for he found no place for a change of mind in his father, though he sought it diligently with tears.

Hebrews 13 : 8 - Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and to-day, yes and for ever. Be not carried away by divers and strange teachings: for it is good that the heart be established by grace; not by meats, wherein they that occupied themselves were not profited.

James 1 : 17 - Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, neither shadow that is cast by turning. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

No change - Old Testament

Malachi 3 : 1 - Behold, I send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, behold, he comes, says Jehovah of hosts. But who can abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap: and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to Jehovah offerings in righteousness. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant to Jehovah, as in the days of old, and as in ancient years. ( 5 ) And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against the false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the sojourner from his right, and fear not me, says Jehovah of hosts. - For I, Jehovah, change not; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.

Above left - The great changeover from solid and atomic fuels to wind and water power seems so far away that it might not make it. Yet some power suppliers have seen the necessity to construct huge wind farms....right now.

- just one example of change.
