Most people were worse off after hearing Jesus because they
rejected what he had to say. People who hear the Word will either open their hearts to it or harden their hearts. The Bible makes clear that most will harden their hearts.
"For wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it".
Regardless of how much evidence men are confronted with most will refuse to believe the claims of Christianity. Believing will require that men must forsake their sins.
Jesus said: "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved".
Paul said, "Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men".
2 Corinthians 5:11
If our hope is to bring men to repentance and faith, we must know the terror and wrath of an angry God against this rebellious generation. Paul saw many in the valley of decision about to fall into the pit of hell. He knew the terror of the Lord!
There needs to be a revival of the knowledge of the "wrath of God".
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness."
The day is coming when God will show His wrath against every sinner because of their willful rebellion against what they know to be true through natural revelation, the Bible, tradition, and his reason and conscience.
If you call yourself a Christian, you have a responsibility as a child of God to take an active stand for God and against sin. I encourage you to be bold in your faith in Christ and do as God commands.
God commanded Isaiah, "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet and show my people their transgression, and their sins".
"I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;
they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest."
"Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent."
