Sabbath Day (Ex.20: 8 – 11) By r. a. Saturday, June 22, 2019
In Messiah’s name: God’s word is the truth. (Jn.17: 17 & Ps. 119: 142). Sin is the transgression of the law. (1Jn.3: 4)
Based upon my own experience, the most basic and cardinal reason for the unbelief in a Creator-God is the fact unbelievers never take the time to read the bible. Their minds have been poisoned by sources, who also, have little or no knowledge of the bible.
For example, atheistic scientists are one reason for the unbelief of many. These dudes will devote most of their daily/monthly/yearly lives searching for some scientific fact that they can present to the public. On the other hand, they will not spend any time reading and searching the bible. They are spiritually dead men walking. That is, they live, work and manipulate the works of the Creator and are totally blind to the CAUSE of these elements/things that exist.
A second major factor creating unbelief is the god-rejecting mass media. These owners/controllers of same, are agents of the Serpent. As Paul noted, their works are “according to the prince of the power of the air” (Eph. 2 : 2), That is, these serpentine agents control the air waves and spew out ungodly, lawless messages and images. And, unfortunately, the collective accepts them as true, progressive and broad-minded.
Here are just five of many scriptural reasons/causes for unbelief.
Questioning of God’s Word: In Genesis 3: 1 – 6, the Serpent deceives Eve by declaring she will not die if she eats the forbidden fruit. In fact, Satan says she will be as god, knowing good and evil. And, so it is today – man decides what is good and evil. Bitter is now sweet, good is now evil, lies have become the truth. And, you will not perish.
Questioning God’s Power: “they Israelites spoke against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?” “can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?” (Psalm 78: 19 – 20)
Discounting Evidence: “But though he (Messiah) had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:” (John 12: 37)
Hatred Of God’s Messengers: “Then they (those listening to Stephen) cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul, (who later became Paul) “. (Acts 7: 57 – 58)
Rejection Of The Truth: “Why do you not understand my (Messiah) speech? even because you cannot hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.”
“He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
“And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” (John 8: 43 – 45)
Lastly, if you desire eternal life, begin to read the New Testament. You’ll discover Messiah did NOT abolish the commandments, statutes (Holy Days) or the judgments ordained by the Creator-God. He observed and kept them as his true followers do. May you believe the word of God.
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who love the truth and hate the lies and deceptions of the Serpent.
