Because of Israel’s continued disobedience the Lord gave her spiritual blindness that has remained until this day. But as we saw above, when the people followed their words by acts of repentance, and turned to God with ALL their hearts, minds and will He heard and sent redemption.
Therefore the Lord said:
“Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but have removed their hearts far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,
Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder; for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”
Pray that God will remove the spiritual blindness from the people of Israel and that they will see God’s “marvelous work,” their Redeemer and Messiah Yeshua.
