And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace to you!"
Then He said to Thomas, "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing."
And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"
Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
God came to earth as a man for a short period of time and directly affected a few. However, He made it very clear that the entire world would be affected by those few who were directly affected by Him.
Believe in Christ who came, died and rose, and you will KNOW Him.
Then when it is all over, you will see Him as Thomas did. He promised that all who believe in Him would one day be WITH Him.
"LET not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
"In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
One day we will see God.
But God demonstrates
His own love toward us,
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
Much more then,
having now been
justified by His blood,
we shall be saved from wrath
For if when we were enemies
we were reconciled to God
through the death of His Son,
much more, having been
reconciled, we shall be
saved by His life.
And not only that,
but we also rejoice in God
through our Lord Jesus Christ,
we have now received
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the LORD
Shall be saved.
