lest they should believe and be saved
« on: July 05, 2020, 11:35:22 AM »

The bible tells us God blinds, hardens and does not give the truth "lest they should believe and be saved."

I've wanted to make a list of scriptures that show this for some time from the Old and New Testaments. Here is a start. Perhaps some of you can add to the list?

Mar 8:17  And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? 
Mar 8:18  Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? 

Joh 12:40  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. 

Luk 8:10  And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Luk_8:12  Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.

Exo 10:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:
Exo 10:2  And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.

Rom.11:7- What then? Israel failed to obtain it, but the rest were hardened.

Rom.11.8- as it is written, God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that would not see
                 and ears that would not hear, down to this very day.

2 Corth. 3:14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant
                       that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away.

Rom.11:25 Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery
                    brothers. A partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles
                    has come in.

2Timothy 2:20

But in a great house, there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth, AND SOME ARE VESSELS OF HONOR AND SOME ARE VESSELS TO DISHONOR...

(at least the is the end result of those whose hearts have been hardened...)
