A TRUE SAYING REGARDING OBSTINATE SINNERS
Jesus was speaking of the obstinate sinners of his day, when he said:
“And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” Matthew 13:14-15
That was a true saying in Esaias time. That was a true saying in the days of Christ’s ministry on earth; and it is a true saying today when men love their sins more than God.
