“For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.”
Understand the Process of Learning. Hearing, Visual, Doing, these three things are what makes up Obedience or Disobedience. In the above Scripture we find a number of things that are relevant for today.
A person, Man, Woman and Child go through the day making Four Decisions all day long. When they Hear something they go through process of three things, they will either Ignore because of tired of Hearing, they will Understand and Accept or they will have an Action Of Understanding to Do or Not To Do. Visually a person will make Decisions, Judgments based on Evidence the Eyes See, Accepting or Rejecting. Those who are Doing, they Hear, they See and they Act Upon unto Sin or Obedience.
These Traits are in Every Person, Young or Old, the same Process is Evaluated.
“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
Now the First Scripture is what people are Choosing To Do, it is by Their Choice. When someone has come to a point that their Hearts have become Waxed Gross, it is a Heart that has become Hardened To The Truth, it is like bouncing a ball off a wall, the ball hits the wall, but the wall Rejects the ball sending it back or in another direction. They become Callous, not feeling anything in the Heart concerning God’s Word or even what The Holy Spirit is Saying. It is Their Choice!
”7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in [their] heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)”
Someone who is Dull Of Hearing is one who has Heard over and over and over again and will not Hear Any More About It. Their Brains literally Shut Down The Hearing, Rejecting at the Very Sound as it enters in, which Hardens The Heart. They come to a point of Disbelief, Not Accepting What They Are Hearing. It is Their Choice!
“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”
Grieving The Holy Spirit is when a person Hears The Truth Of God, is Convicted By The Word Of God and they are Disobedient To The Word Of God, doing Their Own Choice, rather than that of God’s Choice. A Person has to Choose to do this, it just does not happen without the Persons Decision.
Now, someone who Closed Their Eyes is one who Sees Evidence Around Them and Rejects What They Have Seen, believing it Never Happened, blocking it out of their minds. Being Callous to what is being shown to them. These people have something literally in front of them and to them there is nothing to Concern Them, leading once again to a Hard Heart.
Brothers and Sisters the last elements of the First Scripture are the most important. First we must Understand that the way we Hear, See and Do are NOT The Father’s Way, nor Jesus Way, nor The Holy Spirits Way, but is of Our Own Choosing. This is Unacceptable With God!
“7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
In the First Scripture it says “…should be converted…”, means a Changing From One Direction to Another Direction. That a Person’s Ways (Hear, Vision, and Doing) are from Ones own Understanding to God’s Understanding. That you were a Person Of Sinful Nature changing into a Person Of Godly Righteousness. That you once did things Your Way, but now you do things Gods Way.
The Hearing and Seeing have to be Changed from Worldly Standards to Godly Standards by the Renewing Of Our Minds in the way we perceive things.
“1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
In order for this to take place you Must Desire to do so, you Must Hunger for Jesus and His Ways in order to be Renewed!
Now, for the last part of the First Scripture, “…I will heal them.”. God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) desires us to be Healed…Spiritually and sometimes Physically. Understand that God is more concerned with Your Spirit and Soul than your physical body. Understand this, this body that we now live in, is not going to Heaven, but we will have New Bodies that Conform To God’s Nature that Our Spirit and Soul will reside in.
“Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
“For we know that if our earthly house of [this] tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
2 Corinthians 5:1
In order for us to be Healed, we must first Obey what we Hear and See FROM God and then Acting Upon WHAT we Hear and See. It is a Godly Process that cannot be broken by any excuse, sin will not prevail! This Godly Process has been since the beginning with Adam and has not changed and will not change.
I Walk in Healing both Spiritually and Physically (not all physical things) because I CHOOSE The Father, Son and Holy Spirits ways above my own. This means that if The Scripture says so, then so do I, it the Scripture say not to do so, then I do not. If The Holy Spirit says Do This or To That, then I try to my best to do those things, that will bring Glory and Honor to Jesus My Lord and Savior!!! I do not put my Wife, Children, Friends, Work or any other thing above Jesus, but that All Things Are Subject To HIM!!! This…is My Choice!!!
There are many things that I have had endure because of Man and Satan that was Not Gods Choice, but through those things I have found Grace and Mercy, why, because I Hunger and Thirst for Jesus In MY LIFE, in All Things that Touch My Life.
Brothers and Sisters do you truly Hunger and Thirst for Jesus, which means to Abide By His Word and Spirit. The 1.2..3… is always by choice, I First Hear, Second I See and Third I Do, it sounds simple, but it is very hard at times to accomplish, but that is no excuse. If I fall, then I Must Repent there is no other way. What I Fail to Understand in God’s Word, then I Must Seek Him for the Answer then I Must Act Upon The Answer IN AGREEMENT WITH THE ANSWER!
For an example, if The Word says that I am not to be Unequally Yoked with an Unbeliever, then I CANNOT marry a Non-Believer or Befriend a Non-Believer and still be in Jesus Will, because then I have gone against His Word.
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
2 Corinthians 6:14
Yet many have gone against this Scripture, then they wonder why they have so much trouble in their Lives.
The Scriptures were written for Our Benefit, not the Worlds. The Holy Spirit was given to those of us who Believe and have Accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior this is to Gods Glory, not ours!
Brothers and Sisters, examine, examine and examine again Your Life and All Things That Touch Your Life, weighing them Against Scripture and The Holy Spirit and turn away from those things that we are told not to do, repent, accept and walk Godly… Your Choice!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
