Unbelief is evil

Intentional rejection of the truth

This is another of those sins people do not take seriously.

Unbelief PROVOKES YHVH God.

It is a sign of an evil heart.

It is not a sign of “intelligence,” as some cynics assert.

Hebrews 3

12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;

15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Because the Israelites coming out of Egypt had the spirit of unbelief, they were not allowed to enter the Promised Land.

And so, we, if we are unbelievers in the promises and word of YHVH God, will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

If we do not go to heaven, the only other place to go is hell.

So, how much one chooses to believe YHVH God is a serious matter.

God is not a man that He should lie.

So why disbelieve Him?

Intentional unbelief

To willfully reject faith in YHVH God is sin, and repentance is required, or punishment will come.

YHVH God is not mocked.

2 Peter 3

3 Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.

4 They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”

5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water.

6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.

7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

When faith seems too hard

When the father of the demoniac son asked Jesus / Yahshua for help, he had been suffering with his son since he was a child.

Mark 9

21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.

22 And oft times it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

After a lifetime of being worn down with no results or help, the father realized his own limitations, and first asked for help for himself.

 

24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

Many of us have been suffering for a long time, or even a lifetime, with terrible burdens or afflictions that do not seem to go away with prayer, or other interventions.

We see no results, and give up.

But this is a test of our faith.

If we do not have the faith, our prayers will never get answered in a positive way.

We have to admit our limitations before YHVH God, and ask for Him to heal our unbelief.

The choice is yours.

Choose unbelief and be blocked from the kingdom of heaven, being called evil, and receiving the curses.

Or choose to ask YHVH God for help in any lack of faith, and enter the kingdom of heaven, receiving the blessings.

  2. Thank you….even in heavy struggles, I know this is true to the bottom of my soul. Even through all the noise in this world, this knowledge never goes away no matter what I am going through….so thankful.

  3. Abraham was a great man of faith. Even as he and his son Yitzhak (early to mid-30’s) walked up the place in the land of Moriah he knew Yahveh would provide. Yet he was also a leader and as a good leader he knew to submit to authority, in this case Yahveh’s, thus it is written of him that he kept Torah, Gen 26:5. You cannot have faith without obedience to the way Yah wants us to run the race.
