2 Corinthians 4:4 The god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
Think about this for a moment. Are you living in denial of the "Gospel"? Have you rejected the "Gospel" truth found in God’s Word called the Bible?
Well, if you have rejected the "Gospel of Jesus Christ" the Apostle Paul declares in this text that the god of this world (satan) has blinded the minds of the "unbelievers" for they have chosen not to believe God's Word written in His Bible.
This blindness of "unbelief" has caused the "unbeliever" to view God's Word as non sense, foolish and something that does not make any sense.
1 Corinthians 1:18-The message about the cross is nonsense to those who are being destroyed, but it is God's power to us who are being saved.
MEV-1 Corinthians 1:18- For to those who are perishing, the preaching of the cross is foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
The second part of this text says "satan has blinded them to prevent them from seeing the illuminating light of the "Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."
The goal of the god of this world (satan) is to keep you in bondage in your mind. To continually separate you in your mind from your creator, God of the universe, maker of heaven and earth.The true battle is for the mind. Trust me, satan does not want any of your possessions or material stuff. No! if he could get your mind, he already has the whole you so there is no need to pursue anything else about you for the mind is the control tower.
Whether we choose to believe the "Gospel" or not believe it is a personal choice that does not come without a price.
Rejecting the "Gospel"? John 12:48-There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.
Rejection of the "Gospel" through unbelief by the god (satan) of this world is a bait of satan that will keep you separated from God now and in eternity.
Matthew 13:41-42 The Son of Man shall send out His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who do evil, 42 and will throw them into a fiery furnace. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Scripture describes satan as a thief in John 10:10a The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy.
Rejecting the "Gospel"? Your mind has been blinded by satan, who has disguised himself as your friend, who in reality is your enemy.
This blinding by Satan, concerning the "Gospel of Jesus Christ" is greater than it has ever been and it is world wide.
Some of those rejecting the “Gospel” live under the roof of our own homes, our coworkers, family members, friends, neighbors, enemies, etc. WE KNOW THEM!
We all know someone that has been blinded by satan concerning the Gospel and has been taken hostage in their minds about the truth of satan and his divisiveness.
Yes, Christ death and resurrection may seem foolish, but it is "REAL AND TRUE"! CHECK THE BOOK!!!! BIBLE.
To all who have been blinded by satan, you are without excuse effective NOW if you are reading this blog. You have been given the truth according to God's Word. What you do with that truth is up to you. Yes, you will determine your eternal destination.
If you turn from unbelief to “FAITH” in God’s atoning work at Calvary on your behalf today, God’s Word that is promised to you on today is “the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”
Romans 10:9-13 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. 11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.”[a 12 Jew and Gentile[b] are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. 13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
One thing of surety is that the "Word of God" will STAND against any and all other words spoken by men.
There is still an opportunity for you to turn from "unbelief" to "BELIEF IN CHRIST". Yes, the choice is yours. You can choose to live in rejection or in "FAITH."
Jesus declares these words in mark 16:16-He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
