                                                                                                      Would God ever shut his eyes from seeing and his ears from   

                                                                                                             hearing the prayers and cries of his children?

 

Not according to these scriptures: Psa 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

Psa 34:17  The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

Now if I wanted to use these two scriptures to prove a point that God is always watching over his children and that he always hears their prayers of his saints and ready to pull us out of trouble all the time, I could make a very good argument with just these two scriptures.

But let add this one into the mix, Jesus says in: [Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.]

Many use this scripture that is dealing with Gods provision in our daily needs and not about our eternal salvation, which plainly states: [Let your conversation be without covetousness.] Instead they use it in the context that no matter what you’re going through in your spiritual walk with God, through Jesus Christ our Lord, they will never leave us.

The word for this teaching in our day and age is called ‘Hyper Grace’.

Hyper grace teaches us that our sins are forgiven, past present and future no matter what kind of lifestyle we lived, live, or will live.

In other words, you can live like a sinner and still go to heaven as long as you believe that Jesus died for your sinful life style.

There is and always will be some truth in every lie of the devil and those that follow him, we will come back to this later.

Right now let’s keep focused on the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous and his ears open to their cries.

In the church today it is very hard to distinguish the difference between a sinner and a saint. Much of the body of Christ dresses like the world, acts like the world, talks like the world and lives like the world.

They want so much to be cool and accepted by worldly sinners they are willing to compromise many of the biblical values of morality which are written in our Bible by the same God and Saviour that saves us from our sins, all under the guise of hyper grace, and if you’re not with them then you are legalistic: [Someone who wants to live under the Law of Moses.]

Hyper grace followers are quick to point out this scripture: [Rom 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.]

For ye are not under the law, but under grace; they like that part but leave out this part of the scripture: {for sin shall not have dominion over you.}

That word dominion means: [sovereignty or supreme power or authority and control over you.]

That means sin through the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord has no supreme power or authority and control over you.

It does not mean we are sinless and cannot sin after our salvation, yet it does mean we are no longer a slave to sin, we are no long in bondage to its control, to habitually commit or practice a sinful lifestyle.

A murder cannot continue committing murder, a pedophile cannot continue committing sex with children, a drunk cannot continue being a drunkard, and the list goes on and on.

And if you are sold on hyper grace don’t expect one sinner to be left off the list, accept them all as they are.

Let the rapist teach in your Sunday school, let the transgender watch your children in your nurseries. Let the alcoholic pastor your church, open the prisons and let them all go free, they are no more accountable for their sins as any of you that believe in hyper grace.

If not then you are the hypocrite who believe in hyper grace; and not those of us who you refer to as legalistic, who still know right from wrong, and good from evil.

Jesus came not only to save us from eternal damnation, but from every sinful bondage known to mankind: [Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.]

I wonder who taught him that we should not serve sin as so many believers do in this day and age.

Instead of being an overcomer of sin the vast majority of the body of Christ has succumb to it. Therefore homosexuals are pastoring churches, along with lesbians, to be politically correct is more important than to be biblically correct in the nation in which we live.

We are not to judge women who want to murder their children, we are not to judge any sinful act in this world in which we live. Sinners no as much about this next scripture as Christians do if not more: [Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.]  

And the vast majority of the body of Christ has no clue as to the rightful interpretation of this scripture and sinners/natural people absolutely have no clue because they are spiritually dead: [1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.]

But those who confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour who have repented of their sin calling on God in the name of Jesus should know they are given the privilege of understanding the spiritual teaching of the Bible; in which is every word of it from Genesis to Revelation; not just what Jesus said: [1Co 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.]

Did you hear that?  He that is spiritual judgeth all things, ye he himself is judge of no man, because we have the mind of Christ.

As to the true meaning of judge not lest ye be judge is this, if I see my brother or sister committing sin and want to warn them about it; I am to get sin out of my life before I try to get it out of the life of my brethren: [Mat 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Mat 7:4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Mat 7:5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.]

The next time someone is kind enough to reach out to you with Gods plan of salvation or try to reform you from sinful ways, maybe just maybe it’s not that they are judging you and your lifestyle, maybe they love you and care enough about you to even dare address you about the issue.

Now that being said; again I ask you, will a loving God and a loving Saviour shut their eyes and ears to one or all of their children?

Here is the scriptures again:

[Psa 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.]

[Psa 34:17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.]

By themselves we can shout amen, hallelujah, praise the Lord; but in the context in which they are written it is a totally different scenario: [Before verse fifteen: Psa 34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 

Psa 34:15  The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. 

His eyes and ears are open to the righteous. [Those saved by faith in Jesus Christ our Lord, who through the power and the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord who have departed from evil, who are doing good, who are seeking peace and are perusing it.]

If you don’t fit the description in PSA 34:14, verse 15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry;  has no benefit in your life; no matter how much you want to believe it does.

The same goes for the verse after verse 15: [Psa 34:16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.]

His face is against them that do evil, sinner or saint, he will cut a saint off for committing evil just as fast as he has cut off all sinners. Hyper grace will not keep Jesus saying this to you: [Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.]

Why is Jesus blotting out their names from the book of life? Rev 3:5 [Rev 3:4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.]

They had not defiled their garment: what garment? The one Jesus gives all who are saved: [Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.] Jesus is our garment of salvation, and those that defile it will have their names blotted out of the book of life.

To continue a committed unrepented sinful lifestyle is to fulfil the lust thereof; in which if you read, is forbidden by our Lord and Saviour.

To be honest with you every blessing and curse that comes from God are met with certain conditions, including our salvation.

The condition to having the eyes of our Lord upon us and his ears open to our prayers in is to depart from evil, don’t try to cover it up under hyper grace, do good seek peace and pursue it, then God will not close his eyes or his ears to your prayers. [1Pe 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.] 

God even told the children of Israel that his eyes and ears had been closed to them as a nation because of their wicked ways, when they repented and turned from them: [2Ch 7:15  Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.] 

If they would do what? [2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Can you not see? Can you not hear? Except the body of Christ in this nation repent of their evil and wicked ways, this nation will not be healed and God will not hear your prayers.

He also warns them again about backsliding: [2Ch 7:19 But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them; 2Ch 7:20  Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.]

God will also pluck us up in America by the root, and cast us out of his sight as a nation.

Some would say where is the house that God gave America? [1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.]

If you call yourself a child of God, regardless of denomination or none-denomination we must all come to repentance in this nation if we ever want to see it healed: [2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.] No amount of believing in hyper grace will change the mind and word of God.
