We are all waiting for the Lord’s return. We have to wait since we cannot hurry it up. But waiting is not watching.
“What More Can He Say?”
If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
God has spoken and that is sufficient. If we cannot depend on His word, we would not be convinced by any work. Jesus rose from the dead, and still the unbelievers were not persuaded. “He hath said,” and if God’s Word is not enough, nothing else would ever be enough.
Thomas demanded visible evidence and thereby asked for a lesser blessing than he already had-the joy of believing without seeing. “Blessed are ye that have not seen and yet have believed.” “In whom though now ye see him not yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.” Yet believing-that is it-believing, anyhow!
Faith is just taking God at His Word. He will abundantly prove what He has promised, but not until we stand on the promise alone. “Let God be true but every man a liar.”
Than to you He hath said,
To you who for refuge
To Jesus have fled?
