Ears Hard of Hearing

Acts 28:23-27 AMPC … So when they had set a day with him, they came in large numbers to his lodging. And he fully set forth and explained the matter to them from morning until night, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to persuade them concerning Jesus both from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets.
24 And some were convinced and believed what he said, and others did not believe.
25 And as they disagreed among themselves, they began to leave, [but not before] Paul had added one statement [more]: The Holy Spirit was right in saying through Isaiah the prophet to your forefathers:
26 Go to this people and say to them, You will indeed hear and hear with your ears but will not understand, and you will indeed look and look with your eyes but will not see [not perceive, have knowledge of or become acquainted with what you look at, at all].
27 For the heart (the understanding, the soul) of this people has grown dull (stupid, hardened, and calloused), and their ears are heavy and hard of hearing and they have shut tight their eyes, so that they may not perceive and have knowledge and become acquainted with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their souls and turn [to Me and be converted], that I may heal them.

Paul testified about Jesus both from the law of Moses and from the Prophets(v23) and Scripture(v25: Isaiah 6).

Why then did some not understand?

  • They have shut their eyes
  • Their ears are hard of hearing
  • Their hearts are hardened

James 1:23-25Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the PERFECT LAW that gives FREEDOM, and continues in it–not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it–they will be blessed in what they do.


Ears are dull(hard of hearing) from drinking only milk and
From thirsting for water{spirit} without eating solid food.

Heb 5:11-14; Amos 8:11-14


Matthew 22:29Jesus answered them, “You are deceived{in error,mistaken, wrong}, because you don’t know{understand} the Scriptures or the power of God”.

Why are ears hard of hearing-Eyes shut tight&Hearts not understanding? => Matthew 22:29
Dull Ears=>from drinking only milk &thirsting for water{spirit} without eating solid food –Heb 5:11-14; Amos 8:11-14
Be careful what you eat=>It affects what you are able to hear-see-understand! Mark 4:24

    Mark 4:23-25If any man has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him perceive and comprehend.
    24 And He[Jesus] said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear. 25 For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away [by force] …
