Immutability simply means that God never changes; Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. God has always been the same and will always be the same and He changes for no one. His plans and purposes have never changed and His will will be acomplished and nothing can stop it. God has never changed in His nature, in His Word, or in His Glory. While men change constantly and shift in their human natures, God never changes and has always been the same. His Immutability applies to all of His other attributes as well. His Love never changes,in that He has loved His elect before the foundation of the world, predestinating them in love. His Goodness and Mercy never change,"His mercy endureth forever" ; and on the other hand, His wrath never changes: He visits the iniquities of the generations and will not let the guilty go unpunished. His holiness never changes in that He cannot be any more holier than He always has been and always will be.
God is an unchanging God!!

The Divine immutability, like the cloud which interposed between the Israelites and the Egyptian army, has a dark as well as a light side. It insures the execution of His threatenings, as well as the performance of His promises; and destroys the hope which the guilty fondly cherish, that He will be all lenity to His frail and erring creatures, and that they will be much more lightly dealt with than the declarations of His own Word would lead us to expect. We oppose to these deceitful and presumptuous speculations the solemn truth, that God is unchanging in veracity and purpose, in faithfulness and justice (John Dick, 1850)."

"What peace it brings to the Christian’s heart to realize that our Heavenly Father never differs from Himself. Incoming to Him at any time we need not wonder whether we shall find Him in a receptive mood. He is always receptive to misery and need, as well as to love and faith. He does not keep office hours nor set aside periods when He will see no one. Neither does He change His mind about anything. Today, this moment, He feels toward His creatures, toward babies, toward the sick, the fallen, the sinful, exactly as He did when He sent His only-begotten Son into the world to die for mankind.

God never changes moods or cools off in His affections or loses enthusiasm. His attitude toward sin is now the same as it was when He drove out the sinful man from the eastward garden, and His attitude toward the sinner the same as when He stretched forth His hands and cried, ”Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”" - A.W. Tozer
