Isaiah 29:13 “The Lord says: These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.”
We have the word that has been given us by the Father, it is written in the Bible, but have you ever asked yourself why you read the Bible and you cannot understand sometimes? You say to yourself i want to study the bible today, you set everything aside, you make sure there is nothing around you to cause distraction. You then pick up your bible and realize you cannot read a chapter, even the few verses you read were having no meaning to you. Lets take a look at these scriptures: Psalm 147:19-20 “He has revealed his word to Jacob, his laws and decrees to Israel. He has done this for no other nation; they do not know his laws.”
Isaiah 29:11-12 “For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.” Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I don’t know how to read.””.
The Lord seals his word from the person who has no understanding. You read the word of God and memorize it, everyday you repeat his words your mouth and honor the Lord with your lips, but there is no understanding, for understanding comes from the heart, understanding is when you have accepted the word of God and when you are faced with a situation, you act according to what the word of God says. Example: the word says help those who are in need, but when you are faced with a situation of someone who needs help, you smile because this person had done you wrong and say “i will see how he will come out of that situation”. This is lack of understanding. A person who lives this kind of life does not qualify to live in God’s camp. The greatest commandment is love, but the example above just saw how the command of God was neglected. How do you expect God to reveal more of his word to you when you have no understanding? The word of God is revealed when you are in his camp. You read and the Spirit reveals more to you as if you had never read before.
Isaiah 29:14-16 “‘Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.’ Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their work in darkness and think, ‘Who sees us? Who will know?’ You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘You did not make me’? Can the pot say to the potter, ‘You know nothing’?”
So can you say to the Father that you made him? He gave us his only Son Yahushua Mashiach / Christ, who took away all our trouble and there is no other way to stay in the camp of God, but in Christ / Mashiah Yahushua.Yahushua is calling on you today to come to him all of you who are restless, who have not walked in the ways of Christ, who are living a sinful life, come to him and he will give you rest. Take his yoke which is light and not heavy to carry, so that he will lead you. For the Spirit is always at work when we follow the ways of Yahushua. To follow the ways of Yahushua is understanding. Without understanding, we are living out of the camp of God.
Open my eyes Lord to see your word, for i am a stranger in this land, do not hide your commands from me. In Yahushua’ name. Amen!
