There is one thing that God can’t do. LIE.
It is impossible for God to lie.
The Book of Hebrews, Chapter 6, verse 18 tells us “..that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
The two unchangeable things referred to are:
1. God’s oath to Abraham (Genesis 22:16-17 says “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son” and He blessed Abraham and His descendants forever.)
2. God’s covenant with Abraham (Hebrews 8:10 – this is the covenant made with the house of Israel: I will put My Laws in their mind and write them on their hearts, and I will be there God and they shall be My people.)
We have this hope as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the presence behind the veil, where Jesus has entered for us.
So because God has given us the promise of eternal life in Jesus we can be sure that His promise is true, if we continue in the faith, and are not moved away from the Hope of the Gospel.
