He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
John 1:10-11 NKJV
“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
John 3:19-21 NKJV
I have heard many people say “if God would reveal Himself, I would believe.” If this is you, I would like to ask you this: “would you really believe, or are you just using this as an excuse?” Please consider this: God did come to earth and revealed Himself, yet many still did not believe. They denied Him, yet the proof was right before their eyes. God has also revealed Himself to you. Please consider these passages.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Rom 1:18-21 NKJV
Before I was saved I did not want to come to the Light because I loved my sin. I tried the best as I could to make God go away. But now I am so thankful Jesus did not give up on me and sent people into my life to tell me of Him.
