WHY ARE PEOPLE BLINDED TO CHRISTIANITY?

I recently watched CNN present a program why many previous Christians were becoming atheists. It seemed like the nation I grew up in has changed from being spiritual to being humanistic.

As I was reading the Bible I noted John 12:37 – 41 – “Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: “Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn—and I would heal them.” Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about him.”

I wondered, has God done the same thing to many Americans today? They were blinded and their hearts were hardened prior to Jesus being crucified. Is the same thing occurring prior to His second coming to meet the church in the air? Why are so many refusing to believe that Christ is the Messiah?

Isaiah 6:10 – “Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”

Are we to believe that man’s unbelief was an action of God? Did God want some people to believe and some people not to believe? We can’t believe that the God that Christ described would ordain that some people were not allowed to believe. Isaiah prophesize it would happen that people would not listen to what he was predicting. John then says that what Isaiah wrote was being fulfilled.

It was a belief by the Jews that God was responsible for everything that happened. They did not believe anything could happen outside the purpose of God. There were no coincidences. This is not true as we know God is not responsible for those who steal, cheat or murder. If what they believed was true, then it would be unfair to put anyone in jail if they did it, because they were only doing what God wanted.

What we believe this Scripture means is that people will not accept Christ because of their unbelief and God is using it for His purpose. We read in the Bible, as the end times are nearing, Christians will fall away. Is this another sign that Jesus is getting ready to return? There are a number of signs that indicate this might happen just as there were many signs that Jesus would be crucified. A number of preachers are giving sermons stating that God uses signs in the sky to warn people something is to take place. They refer to the star that directed the Magi to the birth of Christ. God caused the sun to stop and not go down for a period so they would believe. He has used the four blood moon solar eclipses falling on Jewish holidays that something would happen. Saturday April 4th a blood moon will occur and the final one on September 28, 2015. NASA does not foresee another four blood moons in the future. More information will be given in future blogs.

I cannot believe we would ever have an American president that would be anti-Semitic. If he has read the Bible, how could he not realize that God blesses those that bless Israel and curses those who curse Israel? Has he not read history concerning nations that have cursed the Israelites and that they received God’s punishment? What I am seeing is another sign coming from Washington, D.C. that we are entering the end times and the beginning of the Tribulation period. God knew the kind of President Obama would be and this would be what was needed if the end times are nearing.

Joel 3:2 – “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”

No one has the right to ask Israel to give up land that God has given to them as an inheritance. I have read a number of reasons why Israel should make a peace agreement. However, the Bible says that will not happen until the agreement is made with the help of the antichrist. Bush forty-one also wanted Israel to give up land and as a result he almost lost his home at Kennebunkport, Maine during the perfect storm on October of 1991 that 30 feet waves practically washed it down. I wish our politicians studied the Bible and made their decisions based on God’s ways and commands. There are so many proofs that disasters have stricken America when Israel was mistreated.
