Thomas Wasn’t With the Disciples the First Time Jesus Appeared to Them. Even After Hearing the Others’ Testimony, He Refused to Believe. He Told Them, Unless I See the Nail Marks in His Hands and Put My Finger Where the Nails Were, and Put My Hand Into His Side, I Will Not Believe It

John 20:27-29 27 Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!" 29 Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

When Jesus initially appeared to the disciples, Thomas wasn't present. He refused to believe even after hearing the other witnesses' evidence. They were instructed by him, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands, put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it." John 20:25 Why was Thomas acting strangely? I believe the problem with the disciples before to the appearance of Jesus was the same. He didn't want to have another hope that turned out to be unfounded. Jesus is aware of how weak our hearts are. Once, Thomas exhorted the disciples to follow Jesus and follow death. He now requires encouragement in order to accept their testimony at all.

Jesus demonstrated that He understood what Thomas had stated when He first arrived. "Go ahead and execute. Squeeze the wounds. Stop doubting and start believing. None of the others had made a confession until Thomas did. "My Lord, and My God." Not only are you my master, but you are also my God, he was saying. He provides us with the proof we require. Then, it is up to us to decide what we do with it. Thomas traveled all the way to India with it before dying a martyr. Thomas continues to be the most popular male name in Southern India.

He was informed by Jesus that it is blessedness for those who believe without seeing. Faith is praised by God. Faith is the acceptance of the invisible. Jesus has shown Himself to many of us in ways that demand less faith than others, even though you and I have never seen Him with our physical eyes. Consider the testimony of the many people who have faith despite not having seen if you are having trouble finding it. A blessing will come along with that faith. Tell Him about it if you are unable to muster the faith to believe. He will meet you in a way that will aid in your conversion to faith if you are sincere and honest. You will receive a hopeful heart from him.

Think about this: God will provide anything you need to believe. When He does, what are you going to do with it?

The Great Tribulation

It is our belief that the Great Tribulation referred to in the New Testament Book of Revelation (chapters 6-11) is unfolding before our eyes. In the near future, we will devote the "Tribulation" tab on our "Trending" menu to this emerging reality. As people continue to unplug from mainstream media, our commitment is to present the truth and encourage our audience to understand current events from a Biblical perspective.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
