“But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD. And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.”
Folks need to be wise concerning the idea of God doing “a new thing.” According to the above scripture, the phrase “a new thing” means, novelty. In other words, something “unusual.” The context here refers to the point when God made “the earth open her mouth” which was really NOT a new or good thing …but… it was an “unusual” tragic event He caused to happen … ONE TIME!!!
The phrase “a new thing” is used three times in scripture. We see the one above, then there is Isaiah 43:19, where “a new thing” refers to something “brand new” … and finally, in the book of Jeremiah 31:22, “a new thing” refers to someone “renewed.”
Wake up somebody AND quit you like men! God cannot do “a new thing” because there is nothing new under the sun neither over it. He is an old God with ALL wisdom and knowledge laid on the ancient path, so there is NO NEW THING with Him….
