Do You Doubt?

When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful Matthew 28:17

Do you still doubt Jesus? The disciples of Jesus who spent over three years with him, witnessing amazing miracles and awesome power, yet some of them still had doubt. Why do we have such a hard time accepting Jesus as our Lord?

The disciple Thomas, who earned the nickname “Doubting”, wouldn’t even believe Jesus was resurrected until he got to touch the wounds from the cross. So if some of these disciples still had doubts, it’s not surprising some Christians today have doubts.

Jesus said “Blessed are those have not seen yet still believe (John 20:29) He understands that faith can sometimes be difficult, but if we have faith even the size of a mustard seed , we can move mountains (Matthew 17:20)

But consider this, his disciples gave up everything to follow him. They gave up their professions, families, agendas; they sacrificed everything because in their heart they knew he is the one Messiah.  And from a worldly perspective it would seem they lost everything, but in Gods Kingdom they gained everything

So when your doubt starts to creep in, remember what Jesus has already done for you. It’s a historic fact he died for our sins and defeated sin and death at the cross. Jesus is our hope and salvation, there is no other way to God

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Matthew 28:18

After some of them doubted , Jesus made it clear, all authority on Heaven and Earth was given to him by God. Make no doubt about it , Jesus is our Lord and Savior, Every knee will bow and tongue will confess in Jesus Name Amen

    To give praise or reverence is not exactly the same as to worship some one. We have to accept Jesus for whom he is and for what he has done but may not make him into our god. All people should come to see that Jesus is the way to God and come to worship the same God Who Jesus worshipped, the God of Israel Who is also the God of Abraham.

        That we do not think because it was the heavenly Father Who Himself declared Jesus to be His son:

        “ but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,” (Ga 4:4 ASV)

        “30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found {1 } favor with God. {1) Or grace }31 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob {1 } for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. {1) Gr unto the ages }34 And Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: wherefore also {1 } the holy thing which is begotten {2 } shall be called the Son of God. {1) Or that which is to be born shall be called holy, the Son of God 2) Some ancient authorities insert of thee } (Lu 1:30-35 ASV)

        “21 Now it came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that, Jesus also having been baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 23 And Jesus himself, when he began to teach, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli,” (Lu 3:21-23 ASV)

        We believe what the Bible says: Jesus being the son of God and not a god son, not forgetting that Jesus is now the mediator between God and man.

        “ For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, himself man, Christ Jesus,” (1Ti 2:5 ASV)

        “ But now hath he obtained a ministry the more excellent, by so much as he is also the mediator of a better covenant, which hath been enacted upon better promises.” (Heb 8:6 ASV)

        “ and to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaketh better {1 } than that of Abel. {1) Or than Abel } (Heb 12:24 ASV)

    Lots of Christians do forget what God Himself declared about His sent one, who now is a high-priest before God and a mediator between God and man. You yourself quote what Jesus himself said (authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Matthew 28:18) but seem not to believe it because you also seem to have made Jesus into your god.

        You clearly are misreading the Gospel of John and do not seem to see how the apostle looks at a new world and compares it with the old world, writing from his belief that Jesus is the one promised in the Garden of Eden and being the second Adam, the long awaited Kristos (Christ), the Messiah so many prophets spoke about. No (2022 years ago) that saying of God (the Word) having become a reality, i.e. having come in the flesh.

        No we do not confess Jesus is is God in the flesh. Him being a god does not mean being The God. Like Moses or Pharaoh or Apollo are not The God. do you think all the people who are called “god” are God, like Sean Connery, Elvis Presley, Britney Spears, and so many contemporary gods?

        “Allah” is in many languages the general term to describe what English speaking people call “God”. As such non- or other-believers or atheists, Jews, Christians and Muslims in many countries use “Allah” and have it in their scriptures, like the Roman Catholics have their Bibles with “Allah” in the books with the imprimatur of the Vatican.

        Is that not the nice thing about a man of flesh and blood, proving that he can keep to God’s Commandments and preferring to do God His will and therefore putting his own will aside. (Naturally in case Jesus would be God he would always have done his own will and in such instance he has mislead and told many lies here on earth, even of such important issues as his return.)

        I accept God and know that “Allah” is the Most High God, Who even has a Name which I do know, namely Jehovah. I am also willing to repent for all the things I have done wrong, so that I do hope shall not be a problem neither for God nor for the sent one from God, whom I consider to be Jeshua, the Christ (Kristos) (Ishi/Jesus/Jezus/Chesu) who is also called the son of man and the Messiah, as well as the Way to God.

        Why do you not accept that Jesus is the way to God? And why do you not accept Jesus is the son of God, like his heavenly Father says?

        It looks more that I believe more things of the books you are calling your Bible than you seem to accept though it is written in that Bible.
