After performing miracles (we do not know how many at this time),
Jesus went to Jerusalem for the Passover. There many people professed to
believe in Him and at least in their minds followed Him. They believed
because they saw the miracles that Jesus had done.
But Jesus did
not commit Himself to them, because He knew their hearts. It is not what
we do or how we think in a physical or a carnal way; it is important
that the heart be changed and we become new creatures in Christ. Jesus
knew what was in man, and He knows your every thought as well as your
Our mind is carnal, so we can understand only carnal things: 1 Cor. 2:11 For
what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is
in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. The carnal mind cannot know God: Rom. 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Notice also Matt. 11:27 All
things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son,
but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he
to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Has God revealed His
Son to you? Have you heard of Jesus, the Messiah? Do you know that
Jesus came from God, being God in essence, to save the lost? Do you know
that Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life, died and resurrected from the
dead? Do you know He was a substitute for sins for everyone who
believes on Him?
Can you, will you believe on Him today? Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
