Isaiah 6:9 Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving. Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.
I do not want to be in this group – rather the remnant in verse 13 – Holy seed…in the land. I am reminded they did have to suffer through the purge of the ungodly sent by God. But they were kept to reseed the land. How many times over in history has this been necessary in the eyes of God? What do you think, will we be subject to it again?
