Many Christian believers are spiritually blind and deaf.  They cannot see the kingdom of God
and they cannot hear the voice of God, the reason being that they are
not born again. We read in John 3:1 "Now there was a man of the
Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; 2this man came to
Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You have come
from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do
unless God is with him.” 3Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly,
truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the
kingdom of God.”
It is only when a person is born again, that he
can understand the kingdom of God and experience Jesus Christ as Lord
and Master, hear His voice, serve and follow Him.
Christians operate on the level of the intellect and their physical
senses. They believe in what they do not know. They believe in the
Bible and they say they believe in Jesus, but they do not know Him.
Professing to be wise, they have become foolish, because they are
irrational, they believe lies. They believe in an image of Jesus that
they have either made up in their own mind, or that others have
presented to them. They have never met Jesus and never received
revelation from Him. Therefore they do  not know Him, neither do
they HEAR  His voice. They are spiritually deaf. They cannot
understand that others who are born again HEAR Him, because they
expect to hear Him with their physical ears. God is spirit, and He
speaks to His children, those who are born again, in their spirit. He
reveals Himself to them in their spirit.
"Faith comes from
the hearing of the Word of God." Jesus said " “My sheep
hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give
eternal life to them," John 10:27,28. His sheep follow Him
because they HEAR  His  voice.  Many believers do not
HEAR His voice, because they are not born again. Many do not believe.
They trust in their own understanding. They read the Bible and pick
and choose what they want to believe, they listen to other people and
read their books and media, but they do not hear nor listen to Jesus.
They are not His sheep. They are just religious  and deceived.
They think that their  Bible knowledge and church membership
will give them eternal life, but they are not following  Jesus.
They  have no hope of eternal  life. They are spiritually
dead, deaf and blind.
Jesus gives LIFE to those who OBEY  His
words, those who accept Him, repent and are baptized in water and who
seek Him.  He makes them NEW, BORN AGAIN with spiritual ears and
eyes, so that they can hear, see and know the truth. He gives them
understanding of His ways and knowledge of His kingdom. He gives His
Holy  Spirit in them to teach and guide them.  They are not
in darkness because they walk in the Light.
Have you been born again of the Spirit
of God? Do you have spiritual ears and eyes? Do you see the kingdom
of God and hear Jesus speaking to you? Do you follow Him? Are you one
of His sheep?
May Jesus bless you.
