  • Day 27 of 100 prophecies fulfilled by Jesus – people’s hearts are hardened.

  • Is. 6:9-10 – And he said, “Go and say to this people: Keep listening, but do not comprehend; keep looking, but do not understand.’10 Make the mind of this people dull, and stop their ears, and shut their eyes, so that they may not look with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and comprehend with their minds, and turn and be healed.”

Mat. 13:13-15 – The reason I speak to them in parables is that ‘seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen, nor do they understand.’ 14 With them indeed is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah that says: ‘You will indeed listen, but never understand, and you will indeed look, but never perceive. 15 For this people’s heart has grown dull,  and their ears are hard of hearing, and they have shut their eyes; so that they might not look with their eyes,    and listen with their ears, and understand with their heart and turn— and I would heal them.’

John 12:37-40 – Although he had performed so many signs in their presence, they did not believe in him. 38 This was to fulfill the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah:

“Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” 39 And so they could not believe, because Isaiah also said, 40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they might not look with their eyes, and understand with their heart and turn—and I would heal them.”

Acts 28:24-27 –  Some were convinced by what he had said, while others refused to believe. 25 So they disagreed with each other; and as they were leaving, Paul made one further statement: “The Holy Spirit was right in saying to your ancestors through the prophet Isaiah, 26 ‘Go to this people and say, You will indeed listen, but never understand,     and you will indeed look, but never perceive. 27 For this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are hard of hearing, and they have shut their eyes; so that they might not look with their eyes and listen with their ears, and understand with their heart and turn—and I would heal them.’

Prayer: “Lord, keep us from having heard hearts. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

  1. I read or heard somewhere that Isaiah was Jesus’ favorite book. Makes sense. It foretold so much of His life.
    Amen to your prayer-may I never have a hardened heart.
