For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. Matthew 13:15-16
It’s amazing when you think about all the miracles Jesus had performed and prophecies he fulfilled right in front of people, and yet many still did not believe. That’s why humility comes wisdom.
As people we become proud and set in our ways. God could be talking to us at this very moment, but we are too busy, distracted, or plainly just not interested in hearing or seeing.
For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it. Matthew 17
Could you imagine living during the days of Jesus, actually seeing him heal the sick, speaking the Word of God with authority?
The disciples had seen many miracles and heard many parables, but yet all of them still doubted who Jesus was. What’s it going to take for you to truly hear and see the Power of God?
This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. Matthew 13:13
This is why Jesus spoke in parables, so people could relate to God in there every days life. This is common nowadays also as many try to teach the Word of God being relatable to your current life.
But why do you force God to water down his gospel so you will accept it? All of us probably in our lifetimes have experienced our own miracle that we can’t explain, only God could have performed. So why can’t we have faith? Why don’t you hear and see God?
He said, “Go and tell this people: “‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Isaiah 6:9-10
Jesus had fulfilled this prophecy, until people open there hearts with love, they will never understand God. Just as Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God with all our hearts and love each other as Christ has loved us.
Stop hardening your heart, open your eyes and see, open your ears and hear. Jesus is the Messiah and has saved the world. Follow him in Jesus Name Amen
