Think about it, if Jesus is on His throne in Jerusalem, ruling the Nations - how much faith do you have to have? How much faith do you need to have to believe that Queen Elizabeth II is the sovereign of England? None - you can see it, thus there is no real reward for believing it. During the Tribulation when angels are flying over head issuing proclamations, do you need a lot of faith to believe? When prophecy is opening right in front of you in perfect detail, you don't need a lot of blind faith to believe. If you are an Old Testament believer on Mt Carmel and Elijah calls down fire from Heaven, how much faith do you have to have?
|Elijah on Mt Carmel - The Evidence of God|
In the end, Hebrews 11:6 and without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. So we press on as this age of faith draws to a close, where the powers of darkness seem to over shadow the Almighty. Where from what we can SEE the enemy is the one in power on this Earth but by faith we believe in His promises. We believe in His soon return, we believe in His power and we long for the day when the evidence of our faith is manifested for ourselves and for this unbelieving World to see.
