Where there is no desire to seek out Almighty God, there is no revelation, to be seen or to be witnessed.

History writes of a person known as Jesus of Nazareth. I have never 'seen' Him in the flesh, nor have I heard of anyone in these modern times actually meeting Him in the streets. Yet I have a spiritually driven sense of Who He is, and based on that, have a spiritually driven knowledge of His existence through the written witness of His Holy Bible. It is what I need, all that I need to know that He exists, in spite of the various declarations of so many who never knew Him; nor will they ever by evolutionary or other means.

If a person does not desire to know Almighty God, they will never know Him. It's that simple. The witness is purely expressed to those who have the desire, not to those who do not. The witness only, not the conversion, is our mandate from a loving and gracious Almighty God. Only in a hatred of such things is there ever the need by someone who does not know Him in love to depict Almighty God as less than the terms He has been described in the Holy Bible. In the final analysis, it is not our problem whether anyone else believes or not; our only responsibility is our witness through His Holy Spirit.
