Unbelief Has Always Been Here
Even when Jesus was here on this earth and the people saw with their own eyes the miracles and wondrous things that He did there were still those that did not believe He was the Son of God. So how hard it is for some today to believe in Him. Even if those today, that live in unbelief, where to have lived and seen the same miracles and wondrous things that Jesus did on earth that those did see, they still would not believe unless the Lord our Saviour allowed them to. He has hardened their hearts and blinded their eyes. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Until one truly believes in Him so shall they perish. Let not your heart be troubled for in His house are many mansions and He will come back for us one day. Praise His dear name. Yet though he were dead so shall he live In Jesus Christ.
37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
