At a time when Israel was just coming out of exile, God gives Isaiah a message to comfort these weary people. To awaken the conscience of God’s people, He asks a series of questions to restart their hearts. “Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth” (Isaiah 40:21, 28). Even though Israel had changed their hearts a thousand times, God had not changed.
Jesus uses the same approach with the Pharisees to remind them that God has not change His mind or His design for marriage. Even though “Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so” (Matthew 19:8; Mark 10:6). While cars, watches, cloths and a host of other items get redesigns all the time, God is not changing His design to cater to the whims of man on His design for marriage. He has never made a mistake and never will. If only we would realize that our greatest blessing and prosperity is in RETURNING TO THE ORIGINAL!
