And thou Capernaum which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works which have been done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day (Matthew 11:23).
The Bible says that when Moses saw the Christ, he refused to be called the son of the daughter of Pharaoh (Hebrews 11:24). He chose to die to a certain life so he could live unto God.
God has manifested Himself to us by many infallible truths. But have these caused us to yield to Him? That is what Jesus is referring to in our theme scripture.

While many are dying in one sphere for lack of knowledge, there are those who are dying because they don't submit wholly to what is revealed.
Faith comes by hearing the Word, yet the abundance of knowledge has not provoked them to believe God as they should.
Today, miracles are so common place that men devalue their importance. But every manifestation of the power of God is designed to elevate a believer to trust in God for greater and more eternal things.
That is why unbelief becomes sin to God because whatsoever is not of faith is sin (Romans 14:23).

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for Your Word. It opens my eyes to behold the extreme importance of eternal things. I can never take the manifestation of Your power and Your presence for granted. I choose to believe. I dare to believe. I stand firmly in faith as You work mightily through me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
