All Doubt Removed

Doubt regarding clear Scriptural Truth is actually unbelief. We do believe what Jesus said, or we don’t. This is true of all of God’s Word. We don’t believe because it has all been proven; we believe and God’s Truth is proven to us. Sometimes, our doubts need to be confronted. Thomas, often referred to as “doubting” Thomas, is a case in point. Thomas was told that Jesus had been seen alive. He responded, in John 20:25, “….Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe.” Jesus returned to the disciples and He confronted Thomas in these words, “….Reach hither thy finger, and behold My hands; and reach hither thy hand. and thrust it into My side: and be not faithless, but believing” (From Verse 27). A stunned Thomas replied, “My Lord and my God” (From Verse 28). Jesus used this incident to convey to Thomas and to us a vital Truth. “Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (Verse 29). In saying this, Jesus laid down the Divine order: First believe, and then see! We can’t see His hands and side today, but we can believe Scripture! When we do, we can know He is alive and worshipfully come to know Him as our Lord and our God! We will believe and see, with Spiritual eyes, that God’s Word is 100% True! In the hymn, “O Word of God Incarnate,” William W. How exclaimed, “O Word of God incarnate, O Wisdom from on high, O Truth unchanged, unchanging, O Light of our dark sky; we praise Thee for the radiance that from the hallowed page, a lantern to our footsteps, shines on from age to age.” Selah! “God said it! I believe it! That settles it!” (Source unknown). Trust is an act of will, not a response to some “feeling.”  Ron
