God is God — cannot be more cannot be less.
(James 1:17) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
The Greek word used is ‘parallage’̄ which means transmutation or change.

Scientifically crystal is the perfect or last state of some materials. The perfect or the last state of sand is glass. The perfect or the last state of carbon is diamond. God is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the end, the First and the Last.
(REVELATION 1:8) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Of course, this does not mean that God is a letter or letters. The term used is for people to know that God is the Beginning of everything that exist. He is the first because He is the originator of everything. He is the end and the last because everything will finally be subjected to Him.
(I CORINTHIANS 15:24-27) Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
He is a perfect being and cannot be perfected.
(MATTHEW 5:48) Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
He did not attain perfection as the Mormons claimed.
God has always been Himself and will always be himself in His perfect state of being.
(EXODUS 3:14) And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
It follows therefore biblically speaking that there are so many things impossible to happen with God. It is impossible for Him to lie because He is in the perfect state of truth – the absolute truth.
(TITUS 1:2) In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began…
(HEBREWS 6:18) That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
It is impossible for Him to change because perfection is the last reasonable state of change. It is impossible for Him to deny himself because He is the absolute state of existence.
(II TIMOTHY 2:13) If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
(I TIMOTHY 6:16) Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.
There are realities which up to now are unfathomable by the wisdom of men. Even the greatest of human intellect cannot fully comprehend the diverse mysteries of a whole universe of everything that exist. Such awesome wonders bespeaks of God’s eternal power and Godhead.
(THE ROMANS 1:19-20) Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
If the things created cannot fully be understood it is but wise to conclude that the Creator cannot be fully known by His creation including men nor even angels.
(THE ACTS 17:24) God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands…
(JOB 4:18) Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly…
(ISAIAH 42:8) I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
It is idiotic to attribute to God anything that is a product of human comprehension and understanding.
(THE ROMANS 11:34) For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counselor?
In fact, the Bible admonishes us not to think of anything more than we ought to think, especially about the being of God.
(THE ROMANS 12:3) For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
To think and to conclude that God can do everything constitutes an insult and blasphemy unto the unfathomable majesty of the Most High. As it is unwise to put limits to Him, it is equally unwise to put elasticity to the limits set by God for Himself. We know that He cannot lie because He revealed it through His written words in the Bible. He cannot change himself; He cannot deny himself and so on. To say and make others believe that God can do anything or everything will be an insult and blasphemy against God. Will it be possible for Him to connive with satan?
(II CORINTHIANS 6:14) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Is it possible for him to be an author of confusion? I Corinthians 14:33…..
(I CORINTHIANS 14:33) For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
Is it possible for Him to commit injustice? Is it possible for Him to forsake the widows and the orphans?
(PSALMS 68:4) Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
(PSALMS 68:5) A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
Is it possible for Him to forget or neglect his children?
(ISAIAH 49:15) Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
Is it possible for Him to betray the trust of His children?
(I CORINTHIANS 1:9) God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
The verses cited after each question prove that there are many things which are impossible to God. I pray for your enlightenment.
