Life has so many sharp curves and steep inclines, so many dangerous precipices and rugged mountains. We must hear the Word of the Lord. We must hear it in all of its authenticity, in all of its glory, and in all of its beauty.
God said that the people of Israel would not hear because their ears were uncircumcised. They didn’t have a capacity. Their spiritual faculties and spiritual senses were dull. Therefore, they did not have the ability to retain the Word of God.
Proverbs 27:1 tells us to “boast not thyself of tomorrow” because you do not know what a day will bring forth. The opportunities we have to hear the Word of God go by so quickly. That’s why it is so important to be serious, sanctified hearers. Let the Holy Spirit teach you and develop your spiritual faculties and spiritual senses so that you will understand spiritual things.
God will show you privately and personally where we are in these last days. We are living in the reality of 1 Peter 4:7a, “The end of all things is at hand.”
