He Who Has An Ear...

He who has an ear, let him hear...

Matthew 13; Revelation 2 & 3

I find it very interesting that this phrase, "He who has an ear, let him hear," is said over and over again in the above chapters. In each case the Lord is urging individuals to hear what He is saying. Why? So that we can avoid finding ourselves in less than desirable circumstances. I think that's very nice of the Lord to warn us like that, don't you? But do we really listen to Him? Do we know Him well enough to know what He's saying to us?

For a lot of Christians going to church on Sunday morning and listening to their pastor speak is about as much of God as they can take. I'm sure that for many they wouldn't even think twice about the situation as it's the status quo. Unfortunately, in order to really get to know God, to know Him and to know His voice, we need to spend time with Him. We need to get to know Him by reading His Word to us (the Bible) and learning about Him ourselves.

Each time the Lord said, "He who has an ear, let him hear," He wasn't talking to pastors or evangelists so that they could in turn relay the message to the masses. He was speaking to individuals so that we could each take responsibility for ourselves, which is exactly what He expects us to do. Y'shua, Jesus, the Messiah, came and died for our sins - for your sins and mine. He wants to know you personally and He wants you to know Him so well that you could never be fooled by a faker. He clean the spiritual wax out of your ears so you can hear Him clearly. If you've never asked Him into your life before, you can click here and do so now. You'll be glad you did!
