Matthew 11 - Are You The Messiah?
Jesus’ ministry is growing and impacting many lives, and His signs and wonders fame is spreading quickly. John the Baptist is in prison and he wanted confirmation that Jesus truly is the Messiah. John was probably anticipating the coming Kingdom of God and wondering why he is still in prison. Faith is weakened by our unbelief. We at times wonder if Jesus has all power and why do we find ourselves in what we perceive as impossible situations? The test of authentic faith is always whether we trust and believe God no matter what is happening in our lives. As John is asking questions, Jesus is speaking to the cities that still were unbelieving regarding His Messiahship. He warned them that as they saw His miracles, and still had unbelief, there would be serious judgement because of what they had seen and still did not believe.
