Closed Eyes, Ears And Hearts

When Paul was in Rome, he explained and declared the kingdom of God to the people who came to see him.
From morning till evening he talked to them. Some were convinced of what he said but the others would not believe.They disagreed among themselves. Finally Paul had a statement:
He said the Holy spirit spoke the truth to your fore fathers, through Isaiah the Prophet," Go to this people and say, You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing and never perceiving. For the people's heart has become calloused.They hardly hear with their ears and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes and hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn and I would heal them." [Acts28:24 to 27; Isaiah 6:9&10]

As I read this I realized that the same thing is happening today too. People listen and nothing happens to them. Their hearts are hardened.

The lord is waiting anxiously to heal them spiritually, emotionally and physically, but the enemy has blinded their eyes and dulled their ears and hardened their hearts.

It is time for us to storm the gates of heaven to destroy the enemy's power so that the people will turn to God and be healed.It is sad to see many of our loved ones also in this state.

May the Lord help us to intercede for them. May the Lord hear us from heaven and touch these trapped ones and deliver them.
