“The word of the Lord came to me: ‘Son of man, you are living in the midst of a rebellious house. They have eyes to see, but do not see, and ears to hear, but do not hear, because they are a rebellious house.'”
The Lord gave this preface to the prophet before requiring him to act out an object lesson before the people. Their rebellion dulled their spiritual senses. For that, they would go into exile.
Such dullness to spiritual truth is common today. People don’t want to do God’s will. They want their own religion to give them immediate comfort. Am I one of them?
