What God says about Unbelief

Unbelief. Lack of Faith. These things are contrary to God.

In fact, no one comes to God except through faith.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

As Christians, we are expected to have faith in God to handle every area of our life.
He won’t reward unbelief with blessings. Instead, He will withhold them.

And He did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:58

If we are in disbelief, He won’t allow us His power in our lives.

Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief… Matthew 17:19-20

He will rebuke Christians for our unbelief.

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them. Afterward He appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen Him after He was risen.Mark 16:9-14

If we will confess our unbelief and ask Him for faith, He will work in our lives.

And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief. When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. Mark 9:24-25

After all that God has created and done in this world, there are those that still choose not to believe. He says that is foolish. He is amazed that we choose not to believe…

For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. Romans 1:20-22

And He marvelled because of their unbelief… Mark 6:6

Unbelief will result in being unable to enter into God’s rest (heaven – for all eternity)

But with whom was He grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? And to whom sware He that they should not enter into His rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.Hebrews 3:17-19

“But I still don’t believe in your God.”

Unbelief doesn’t negate God.

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…. Romans 3:3

Unbelief results in an eternity in Hell – where there are no unbelievers.
