YET THE LORD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A HEART TO KNOW, AND EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR TO THIS DAY.

SHALOM,

OUR TEACHING WILL CONTINUE FROM THE WORDS OF DEUTERONOMY IN THE HEBREW BIBLE FROM DEUTERONOMY 28.69 TO DEUTERONOMY 29.1-3, AND IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE FROM DEUTERONOMY 29.1-4.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, YET THE LORD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A HEART TO KNOW, AND EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR TO THIS DAY.

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ IN THE HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 28.69 THROUGH DEUTERONOMY 29.1-3, AND IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.1-4.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 28.69, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.1

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF THE COVENANT WHICH THE LORD COMMANDED MOSES TO MAKE WITH THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN THE LAND OF MOAB, BESIDE THE COVENANT WHICH HE MADE WITH THEM IN HOREB.

THE WORDS OF THE COVENANT ARE THIS:

EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE ARE THE WORDS OF THE COVENANT.

MEANING, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS LAW THAT MUST BE OBEYED BY ALL MANKIND. 

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 40.8, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THE WORDS OF THE COVENANT WERE FIRST ESTABLISHED BY MOSES AND MADE LAW BY THE BLOOD OF A SACRIFICED ANIMAL IN HOREB THAT IS ALSO CALLED MOUNT SINAI.  EXODUS 24.1-8

EXODUS 24.7  ALL THAT THE LORD HAS SAID WE WILL DO AND BE OBEDIENT.

EXODUS 24.8  MOSES ESTABLISHED THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT, AND MADE GOD’S COVENANT TORAH BY THE BLOOD.

PSALM 105.8-10  AN EVERLASTING COVENANT.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE FULLY PART OF THE WORDS OF THE COVENANT.  EXODUS 31.18

THE NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT IS FULLY PART OF GOD’S COVENANT WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  THE NEW COVENANT IS THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR YOU.

THE NEW TESTAMENT, ALSO CALLED THE NEW COVENANT NEVER REPLACES TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT.

HEBREW BIBLE JEREMIAH 31.30-33, CHRISTIAN BIBLE JEREMIAH 31.31-34, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.7-10, LEVITICUS 17.11, MATTHEW 26.26-28.

THE WORD COVENANT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD B’RIT THAT IS AN AGREEMENT IN WHICH TWO PARTIES ENTER INTO.

THE WORDS OF THE COVENANT THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ENTERED INTO WITH GOD IS THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE SWEAR TO DO AND OBEY EVERY WORD THE LORD HAS SAID IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN TO ALL THE WORLD.  AND GOD REQUIRES ALL MANKIND TO OBEY EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

SO, SOME FORTY YEARS LATER HERE IN DEUTERONOMY 28.69 OR DEUTERONOMY 29.1 DEPENDING ON THE BIBLE YOU ARE READING, THE LORD COMMANDED MOSES TO MAKE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL REAFFIRM THAT THEY WILL DO AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

AND THAT TOOK PLACE IN THE LAND OF MOAB, CURRENT-DAY JORDAN, JUST BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ENTERED THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.1-3, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.2-4

AND MOSES CALLED TO ALL ISRAEL AND SAID TO THEM, YOU HAVE SEEN ALL THAT THE LORD DID BEFORE YOUR EYES IN THE LAND OF EGYPT TO PHARAOH, AND TO ALL HIS SERVANTS, AND TO ALL HIS LAND.

THE GREAT TRIALS WHICH YOU HAVE SEEN, AND THE SIGNS AND THOSE GREAT MIRACLES.

YET THE LORD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A HEART TO KNOW, AND EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR, TO THIS DAY.

NOW THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE AT THE END OF THEIR FORTY YEAR JOURNEY IN THE WILDERNESS FROM EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN.  THEY WERE AT THE DOOR STEP OF ENTERING CANAAN THAT WOULD BECOME THE LAND OF ISRAEL, THE EVERLASTING JEWISH HOMELAND.

AND MOSES SAID TO THE PEOPLE, YOU HAVE SEEN THE GREAT SIGNS, AND WONDERS, AND MIRACLES OF GOD THAT GAVE YOU FREEDOM FROM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY.  AND YOU HAVE SEEN THE GREAT SIGNS AND MIRACLES OF GOD IN THE WILDERNESS.  YET THE LORD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A HEART TO KNOW, AND EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR TO THIS DAY.

MEANING, THE LORD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A HEART TO KNOW GOD, NOR HAS HE GIVEN YOU EYES TO SEE GOD.  THE PEOPLE COULD NOT SEE WHAT GOD HAD DONE FOR THEM, NOR DID THEY UNDERSTAND GOD, OR LEARN FROM GOD BY WHAT THEY SAW GOD DO FOR THEM.  NOR DID THEY GAIN ANY WISDOM FROM WHAT GOD SAID, AND WHAT THEY SAW GOD DO.

AND MOSES ALSO SAID, YOU DO NOT HAVE EARS TO HEAR TO THIS DAY.  THE HEBREW FOR THE WORD HEAR IS SHEMA MEANING, HEAR, LISTEN AND OBEY.  SO MOSES IS SAYING, YOU HAVE EARS BUT DO NOT HEAR WHAT GOD SAYS, NOR DO YOU LISTEN TO WHAT GOD SAYS, NOR DO YOU OBEY WHAT GOD SAYS.

I HAVE READ THAT OVER FIVE BILLION BIBLES HAVE BEEN SOLD OVER TIME.  AND ONE HUNDRED MILLION BIBLES ARE SOLD OR GIVEN AWAY EVERY YEAR.

THEREFORE I CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE 7.8 BILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD DO NOT KNOW GOD, THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND GOD, AND THEY DO NOT OBEY GOD.  BECAUSE IF THEY OBEYED GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, THE WORLD WOULD NOT BE SO MESSED UP WITH BAD HEALTH, WARS, TERRORISM, CRIME, FIRES, AND ALL THE OTHER CURSES THAT GOD HAS LEVELED ON THIS WORLD FOR NOT OBEYING HIM.  

BUT, IF THE WORLD DID OBEY GOD, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, THIS WORLD WOULD BE A WHOLE LOT BETTER, HEALTHIER, AND A HAPPIER PLACE TO LIVE. 

GENESIS 3, GENESIS 6, DEUTERONOMY 28

AS WE JUST TAUGHT IN DEUTERONOMY 28, GOD BLESSES EVERYONE WHO OBEYS HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND GOD CURSES EVERYBODY WHO DISOBEYS HIS LAW OF MOSES.

SOME 2,700 YEARS AGO, THE PROPHET ISAIAH HAD A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN THE TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  ISAIAH SAW THE LORD GOD SITTING ON HIS THRONE HIGH AND LIFTED UP, AND THE SKIRTS OF HIS ROBE FILLED THE TEMPLE.  AND ABOVE GOD’S THRONE STOOD THE SERAPHIM.  EACH ONE HAD SIX WINGS.  WITH TWO WINGS HE COVERED HIS FACE, AND WITH TWO HE COVERED HIS FEET, AND WITH TWO WINGS HE FLEW.

AND ONE CRIED TO THE OTHER SAYING, HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, IS THE LORD OF HOSTS.  THE WHOLE EARTH IS FILLED WITH HIS GLORY.  AND THE POSTS OF THE TEMPLE DOOR MOVED AT HIS VOICE.  AND THE TEMPLE WAS FILLED WITH SMOKE.

AND ISAIAH SAID, OY LI, WOE IS ME, FOR I AM UNDONE BECAUSE I AM A MAN OF UNCLEAN LIPS, AND I LIVE AMONG A PEOPLE OF UNCLEAN LIPS.  FOR MY EYES HAVE SEEN THE KING, THE LORD OF HOSTS.

THEN ONE OF THE SERAPHIM FLEW TO ISAIAH HAVING A LIVE COAL IN HIS HAND WHICH HE HAD TAKEN WITH THE TONGS OFF THE ALTAR.

AND HE TOUCHED ISAIAH’S MOUTH AND SAID, SEE, THIS HAS TOUCHED YOU ON YOUR LIPS AND REMOVED YOUR INIQUITY, AND YOUR SIN IS COVERED.

AND ISAIAH HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD SAYING, WHOM SHALL I SEND, AND WHO WILL GO FOR US?  AND ISAIAH SAID, HERE AM I, SEND ME.

AND THE LORD SAID, GO, AND TELL THIS PEOPLE,

LET ME SAY THIS.  THIS PEOPLE GOD IS SPEAKING OF ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE, GOD IS SPEAKING TO ALL MANKIND.  BECAUSE EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS FOR ALL MANKIND.  AND ALL MANKIND CAN READ THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THE LORD REQUIRES YOU TO OBEY HIS WORD FOR YOUR GOOD.   

AND THE LORD SAID TO ISAIAH, GO, AND TELL THIS PEOPLE, YOU HEAR BUT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND, AND YOU SEE, BUT YOU DO NOT KNOW.  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 REPENT AND BE HEALED. 

AND ISAIAH SAID, HOW LONG O LORD?

LET’S READ ISAIAH 6.1-13

AND ISAIAH SAID, HOW LONG O LORD?  MEANING, HOW LONG FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE GENTILES? HOW LONG O LORD WILL THEY HAVE A HEART THAT DOES NOT KNOW GOD AND WILL NOT OBEY HIM?  HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE THEY UNDERSTAND GOD?  HOW LONG WILL THEY HAVE EYES THAT DO NOT SEE WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR THEM?  HOW LONG WILL THEY NOT LEARN FROM WHAT THEY SEE WHAT GOD DOES FOR THEM?  HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE THEY GAIN WISDOM FROM WHAT GOD SAYS?

AND THIS IS MY UNDERSTANDING OF GOD’S ANSWER IN VERSES 11-13.

AND GOD SAID TO ISAIAH, UNTIL THE EARTH IS UTTERLY DESOLATE, DESTROYED AND RUINED, AND THE CITIES WASTED WITHOUT INHABITANTS, AND THE HOUSES WITHOUT PEOPLE, AND MANKIND WILL BE REMOVED AND DRIVEN AWAY.  AND THERE WILL BE A GREAT FORSAKING, A GREAT FALLING AWAY FROM GOD THROUGHOUT THE EARTH TILL THE END OF THIS WORLD.   

BUT A TENTH OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION WILL RETURN TO THE LORD AND BE SAVED BY OBEYING EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND BELIEVE IN ONE GOD WHO IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO GAVE HIS LIFE AS A HUMAN BEING, AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.

OR THOSE WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.

BUT THEY TOO, THE TENTH WHO REPENT AND RETURN TO THE LORD WILL HAVE TROUBLE IN THE END OF DAYS.  BUT THE HOLY SEED, THE RIGHTEOUS, THE CHILDREN OF GOD WHO LIVE BY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, AND BELIEVE IN ONE GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS THE FATHER AND NOT A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods, THEY WILL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL, AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN. 

HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 24, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, ROMANS 6.16, 1 JOHN 3.4,

TEN PERCENT OF THE WORLD WILL BE SAVED THAT INCLUDES ONE THIRD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WILL BE SAVED.  ZECHARIAH 13.8-9

IT IS WRITTEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT ON THE TENTH DAY OF THE PASSOVER MONTH, FOUR DAYS BEFORE PASSOVER, MANY JEWISH PEOPLE IN JERUSALEM WHO WERE PREPARING FOR THEIR PASSOVER SEDER ON THE EVENING OF THE FOURTEENTH DAY OF THE MONTH, HEARD THAT THEIR MESSIAH YESHUA WAS COMING TO JERUSALEM.  AND THEY TOOK BRANCHES OF PALM TREES AND WENT TO MEET THEIR MESSIAH, AND CRIED OUT TO HIM, HO’SHAH’NAH, BARUKH HA’BAH B’SHAYM ADONAY MELEKH Y’ISRAEL; THAT IS TO SAY, SAVE NOW.  BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, THE KING OF ISRAEL.

AND WHEN MESSIAH FOUND A YOUNG DONKEY, HE SAT ON IT, AS IT IS WRITTEN, FEAR NOT DAUGHTER OF ZION, BEHOLD YOUR KING COMES, SITTING UPON THE COLT OF A DONKEY.

THAT IS PROPHESY WRITTEN IN ZECHARIAH.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE KNOW THAT THEY HAVE ONLY ONE KING, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT KING, THE KING OF ISRAEL, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. 

HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2 

AND THE SCRIPTURE CONTINUES.  THOUGH MESSIAH HAD DONE SO MANY MIRACLES BEFORE THEM, YET THEY, MANY JEWISH PEOPLE, DID NOT BELIEVE ON HIM, THAT THE SAYING OF ISAIAH THE PROPHET WOULD BE FULFILLED WHICH HE SPOKE; LORD WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT AND TO WHOM HAS THE ARM OF THE LORD BEEN REVEALED?

THEREFORE THEY COULD NOT BELIEVE BECAUSE ISAIAH SAID, HE HAS BLINDED THEIR EYES, AND HARDENED THEIR HEART THAT THEY SHOULD NOT SEE WITH THEIR EYES, NOR UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART, AND REPENT AND GOD SHOULD HEAL THEM.

BUT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, MANY OF THE CHIEF RULERS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE BELIEVED ON HIM.

ISAIAH 53, JOHN 12, 12-15, 37-42, ZECHARIAH 9.9

THE WORLD FOR THE MOST PART, ACCORDING TO GOD SPEAKING THROUGH HIS PROPHETS MOSES AND ISAIAH SAYS, THE LORD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A HEART TO KNOW GOD, AND EYES TO SEE WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU, AND EARS TO HEAR AND OBEY THE WORD GOD SPEAKS TO YOU IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY WHO AS A HUMAN BEING GAVE HIS LIFE AND SHED HIS BLOOD  FOR YOU TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS OF BREAKING HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4

HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE A HEART THAT KNOWS GOD, AND YOU ARE OBEDIENT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING OBEDIENCE TO HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, THAT GOD IS ELOHIM, THE FATHER, THE SON, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND SO MUCH MORE.  AND YOU HAVE EYES TO SEE WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU BY GIVING HIS LIFE AND SHEDDING HIS BLOOD FOR YOU AS A HUMAN BEING FOR YOUR ATONEMENT IN THE PERSON OF YOUR MESSIAH YESHUA, AND YOU HAVE EARS THAT HEAR THAT GOD REQUIRES YOU TO OBEY HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, THEREFORE YOU ARE PART OF THE TENTH WHO HAS REPENTED AND YOU HAVE BECOME THE HOLY SEED BECAUSE GOD HAS GIVEN YOU A HEART THAT KNOWS GOD, AND EYES TO SEE GOD, AND EARS TO HEAR GOD.

Shalom,
