“9 And He (GOD) said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
10 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.” Isaiah 6:9-10
Nevertheless, our commission is to GO AND TELL! Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God yet many who hear, will not understand…nevertheless, go and tell.
As we look around us and see the Endtime Apostate Church surrounding us at every turn, remember the Lord is knocking at their door seeking those whose heart is perfect toward Him to come out from among the heresy and be ye separate.
Will they hear? Not if we don’t go and tell.
Will they understand? That’s not our business. We don’t know the heart of man. We don’t know who is in the fight of their lives and are getting swept to and fro by every wind of doctrine coming down the pike.
“15 And He (Jesus) said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.
16 He that believes and is baptized shall be Saved; but he that believes not shall be damned.” Mark 16:15-16
For us who have believed, we are baptized into Jesus’ Death; dead unto the sin nature which has set on the throne of our hearts for so long. No longer bound to sin but free to live for God IF we so choose. The unbeliever cannot live unto God because their sin nature still reigns in their heart. They cannot help but to serve sin.
“3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His Death?
4 Therefore we are buried with Him by Baptism into Death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His Death, we shall be also in the likeness of His Resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.” Romans 6:3-7
Being dead unto sin, we can now walk in the newness of life that Christ Jesus afforded whosoever will believe.
This is the answer to man’s dilemma. The Cross of Christ must be lifted up among the camp; among those who hear but understand not. The Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified is just as much for the Saint as it is for the sinner. There is no graduating class.
Go and Tell. Preach the Gospel…in season and out of season. For some, their eyes may dim and their ears grow heavy but for others…for those whose hearts are perfect toward the Lord Jesus Christ, He is standing their knocking; wanting to come sup with them. The Holy Spirit will draw all men unto Him when the Cross of Christ is lifted us as the answer. We are forever being called unto Holiness and Righteousness, no matter our condition.
Jesus Christ is ALIVE. He wants to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect toward Him. GO AND TELL…tell them the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
