Today’s reading: Matthew 12:38-40
It’s Not About the Evidence
Matthew 12:38-40 tells us:
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.”
39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
We read how the Pharisees are asking for another miracle from Yahshua or popularly known as Jesus Christ.
Actually, they have already seen a lot of miracles from Him.
The problem is that these people have already decided NOT to believe in the Messiah and no amount of miracles will convince them.
What did Christ call them?
They are an adulterous generation.
This means that they were people who have departed from the true faith and now have already whored with the wrong and unbiblical religion.
The problem is NOT the lack of evidence, but it is their attitude.
Notice that Yahshua is quick to provide signs and wonders to those who genuinely seek God. The problem is that the scribes and Pharisees were not there to learn.
The same is true in our society today.
A lot of people don’t believe in God — not because of lack of evidence, but simply because they willingly decided to not believe in spite of the evidence.
