Only God can open the eyes of the blind whether physically or spiritually. Isaiah spoke of the blindness of the people as he said: Who will believe our report (message) sent, even Jesus was believed upon but because of the Pharisees the people wouldn’t confess Him or they would be put out of the synagogue for the praise of men was more important to them then the praise of God! (John 12:38-43). That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him. Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
The recent poll of who supported gay marriage raised shortly before the big ruling it is a law to acknowledge across all states. How much was the not being accepted by a church or people if they did not want to agree decided they should hop on board to be liked and fit in?
There is being shown today as in history no reverence nor fear of God in the nation, as sin is running rampant without reservation! Scripture tells of a time when people thought it vain to serve God, yet the proud and wicked are set up as though God would not notice? The day will come when those who truly fear the Lord will be Gods own, and by the way we conduct our lives while we live will return with Christ to discern between the righteous and the wicked and will be allowed to teach His precious word. (Malachi 3:12-18). And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts. Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee? Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered. Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Isaiah had a vision where God told him to go to the people who had ears but could not hear, and could see yet did not perceive unless they be converted and healed. He asked the Lord for how long this should be? And was told till there be no more inhabited cities or houses without man as there will be a great forsaking of knowing Him, and we see this today as people turn a blind eye to Gods righteous ways! (Isaiah 6:8-13). Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
