No Seeing or Hearing

Eze 12:1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying,
Eze 12:2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.

This describes many today who just cannot or do not want to hear the message of God's truth. This is being in rebellion.

Eze 2:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.

it is foolishness to block out the things of God. .

Jer 5:21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:

Satan will help you to block out the things of God; His word, His ways, until your heart becomes a dwelling place for unclean spirits.

2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2Co 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
2Co 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Those of the world who dwell in darkness mock those who are Christians. An example is the Christian football player,Tebow, who has dedicated his life to Jesus Christ. He has made such an impact that there is a one million dollar price offered to any woman who can prove that she has slept with him. A million dollars paid by darkness to remove the light of one man's witness. Is our light shining like this? Will people see God in our lifestyle? Let's hope so. If we become like the world, we have no value for the kingdom of God, and the world will accuse us of being hypocrites. May we see and hear the things of God, may he be seen in us as a witness in a dark hour. Stay in prayer, and stay in the word. No ugly religious spirit, but the fruit of the spirit with love being uppermost in our lives. Love the LORD, His word, His people and the lost sheep. Bring in the stragglers and be one in Jesus, this is our mission of reconciliation. We will face opposition, so we must rely on the strength and direction of our LORD.
