“In the towns where Jesus had worked MOST of HIS MIRACLES the people REFUSED TO TURN TO GOD.”

“In the towns where Jesus had worked MOST of HIS MIRACLES the people REFUSED TO TURN TO GOD. So Jesus was upset with them.” (Matthew 11:20) Talk about exasperating and infuriating! Can you imagine? God’s son, Jesus, leaves his majestic heaven and has come to earth to offer Father’s salvation. By now, the people have already personally witnessed him heal the blind, make the lame to walk, healed the skin-eating destructive disease of leprosy, open deaf ears so they could hear talking, music and laughter, and people who have ceased to live and breathe (the dead) have been raised back to life. (paraphrase of Matthew 11: 4-5)

Then the people seem to think, well that is all well and good, but what else do you have to convince us? We’d like to see you transformed right here. We would like certainty to replace faith. But — Where would be the reward in that? It would be like if God, today in 2016-17, began to write in the clouds: “Attention please! I AM is god. JESUS IS MY SON. Holy Spirit is our comforter. The BIBLE is my truth. Believe in me now as I have plainly written this for you.” So then the people would believe and say, “Finally, you have taken out the faith factor, and I will believe you because I must. I cannot doubt any more. I don’t need faith for what is plainly revealed.”

BUT…God is looking for a people who believe without seeing. His blessing and favor rests on those who believe his Holy scripture and first-hand accounts of the apostles and prophets, but have not seen Jesus in the first century as he walked the earth for 33 years. Over and over the Bible offers blessings for faith.
