CREATION and CREATION’S Powerful GOD
People who refused to recognize the multitude of signs which Jesus performed while He was here on Earth, simply reflected hardness of heart, NOT the failure to see. Jesus said that if they did not believe Moses and the prophets, who spoke constantly of caring for the poor, not even a resurrection from the dead would convince them. Notice the sarcasm in Jesus' statement; for He was on His way to Jerusalem to die. He was fully aware that even when He had risen from the dead, most of the religious leaders would NOT accept Him. They were stubbornly set in their ways, and neither Scripture nor God's Son Himself would change their minds. Their eyes were shut, their ears were stopped, and their hearts were hardened; and although Christ came in Person to them, and preached, as no man ever did, with power and authority, and confirmed His doctrine with tremendous miracles, yet they repented not, nor did they when He arose from the dead.
Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. (KJV)
And he said unto him . . . Abraham said unto the rich man,
If they hear not Moses and the prophets . . . they did not hear Moses and the prophets, nor did they regard what Christ Jesus said, but refused to believe both him and them.
Neither will they be persuaded . . . to repent and believe,
Though one rose from the dead . . . just as Christ Jesus did; whose resurrection, and the Truth of it they tried to confuse, stifle and suppress. This was the sign Christ gave them, of the Truth of His Messiahship; and yet they repented not, nor of what they had done to Him, that they might believe in Him; but they remained hard and fast in their impenitence and unfaithfulness.
Many people believe that multitudes would repent if someone returned from the dead to tell them what Hell was like. Someone HAS come back from the dead. His Name is Jesus Christ. They did NOT believe Him any more than they believed Moses and the prophets. Friend, do not delay in making your choice. There will be absolutely NO more opportunity after you die.
See our Commentary on Luke Chapter 16, about Lazarus and the rich man:
Jesus was SO right when He said that the hard hearted will not believe, even if someone rises from the dead. After Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, the Pharisees finally admitted that He had performed “many signs” (John 11:47). Because the Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection of the dead (Acts 23:8), they really must have been shocked . . . BUT instead of admitting the true authority of Jesus to work wonders and provide signs, the chief priests instead were determined to kill Jesus and Lazarus as well (John 11:43, 12:9-11). How repulsive and vile can people get???
What good will any sign do . . . IF people refuse to SEE it or believe it? Willful and deliberate non-belief in the signs and wonders of God reveals and proves their rejection of Jesus as God.
Rom. 1:18-21 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (KJV)
Our loving, omnipotent God has provided His Holy Word as a reliable and steadfast evidence to reveal His Person, His power, His plan and His will. All we need to do is BELIEVE Him, like Abraham did, and we will be credited with righteousness (Gal.3:6), as was Abraham. We must NEVER call God a “Liar.”
1 John 5:10-12 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. (KJV)
Whosoever believes in the Son of God has this witness in his heart; but whosoever does not believe God, has made a liar out of Him, for he has not believed what God said as a witness about His Only Begotten Son. The results of ‘faith’ is to ‘believe’ on the Son of God and to have a Personal relationship (One on one) with Him. What better witness do we have . . . than the Holy Spirit of God that dwells within us? (John 14:16). This ‘Witness’ within us confirms that we were right and very wise to BELIEVE God and trust in God’s Son . . . for He comforts our soul and eases our heart by giving us hope of eternal life (Tit.1:2; 3:7).
