Scripture of the Day - December 24, 2011

 Re 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches...
I recently read in a blog about a phenomenon in the deaf community that is quite amazing. Many of them do not want to hear. If one does have the opportunity to have some sort of procedure to enable them to hear, the others call it the KISS OF DEATH. Here is a quote from the blog..."Hearing would ruin their life, as they know it. Many deaf people are very happy in their own world,” she said. “It’s a very tight-knit society.  Lip reading is a coveted gift. Most deaf people don’t want to be healed. They are happy being deaf.“ In fact, this woman even speaks of expectant deaf  mothers-to-be who want their babies to be deaf. 
Now that sounds quite incredible and very hard to believe but the same phenomenon is in the spiritual world. People don't want to hear what the Spirit has to say. They are comfortable with their lives and don't want anything to change. They stop their ears so they won't hear. I actually saw a person do that in a sister had come for my son's baptism and she didn't realize she would have to sit through a full church service first. She actually sat through the service with her hands covering her ears. It was almost comical but on the other hand very sad. She refused to hear the preaching of God's word not realizing she was living out scripture. Zec 7:11  But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. The problem is that if you won't listen to God then your are going to fall for man made junk...2Ti 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Folks, we have to pray for those who won't listen that their ears become unclogged...unclogged from pride, stubbornness and perversity, and that they hear what the Spirit has to say.
