HE IS SPEAKING TO YOUR HEART

June 8

We will see in this passage that Jesus had done many signs (miracles with a message) yet they would not believe in Him.  The theme of the whole book John 20:30-31 is that Jesus is God in human flesh because He is God over time, over death, over distance, over nature, over demons, over all creation.  It also says all this was done that it might fulfill the prophecies of Isaiah, who said they would hear, but not believe.  They would not believe so it came to the place where they could not believe. When God is speaking to your heart you had better listen because He may not ever speak to you again if you continue to reject Him. This prophecy was given when He saw Jesus (God) high and lifted up on the throne in chapter 6.  Many believe in Jesus, but are not truly saved because they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.  Who are you seeking to please?  Jesus said in Mt 10:32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. Mt 10:33 “But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. So whose praise are you looking for; Men’s or God’s?

John 12:37-43 But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: “Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?” 39 Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again: 40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, Lest they should see with their eyes, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.” 41 These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him. 42 Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
