Ears

To

Hear

 

 

 

By

 

Prophet T. E. Deckard

 

 

 

Have you ever wondered why you are able to hear and understand things of G-d that others canít seem to comprehend? It all looks to be crystal clear to you, and yet others tell you that you are missing G-d. We are going to answer this mystery so that many of you will begin to understand it has been given to you to hear. There are some here on this earth that G-d has chosen to hear and others that it was not given for them to hear. Rejoice if you are hearing what G-d is saying in this last day.

 It all looks to be crystal clear to you...

... yet others tell you that you are missing G-d

Isaiah 29:9-24

9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.

10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.

11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:

12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.

13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?

18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:

21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.

22 Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale.

23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.

24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

 

Isaiah was seeing a time when the prophets would not have eyes to see what G-d was doing or going to do. It was like a book that was sealed and no one could read it. In verse 13, people drew near to G-d with their mouths but their hearts were far from Him. The Church today could very easily be put into this scripture. Verse 14 talks about G-d doing a marvelous work among the people. The wise will have it hidden from them. In verse 18, we are told that the ears and eyes would be opened to the words of the book. In verse 24, we find that those who have erred in spirit and murmured shall learn doctrine.

 

G-d is doing a marvelous thing in this day and time. The prophets of the Church are sleeping and telling the people what they want to hear, saying, "Peace and comfort" to all. G-d has always had those who could and would hear what He was saying. It is no different in our day. G-d is transitioning the Church and only those that have been given ears to hear will hear at this time.

 

There are some that G-d has not given these ears to hear. Therefore, they can not hear what G-d is saying at this time. It does not mean, however, that they wonít be able to hear.

 

Isaiah 30:1

1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

 

Many leaders of the Church have taken counsel from others that were not of the spirit of G-d.

 

Isaiah 30:8-10

8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:

9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:

10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

 

Notice here that it was written for a time to come. There would come a time when the children of G-d would not hear the Law of the L-rd. Is the Church not part of the children of G-d? At this time, the Church is not interested in prophets that prophesy right things. They want prophets to speak smooth things. Prophets like me are called "gloom and doom" prophets, and the Church would like very much to see us go away. In the end, some of these people will see and repent.

 

Isaiah 30:21

21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

 

We hear this voice that seemingly has escaped the ears of most. We are being guided by the spirit of   G-d, and yet most of the Church believes we are missing G-d all together.

 

Ezekiel 12:1-2

1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.

 

Evidently, we all have eyes to see and ears to hear, but because of rebellion we are blinded from both seeing and hearing what G-d is doing.

 

We all have ears to hear...

...rebellion prevents some from hearing!

 

Zechariah 7:11-14

11 But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.

12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.

13 Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:

14 But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.

 

Because the children of G-d refused to hearken to   G-d, He scattered them throughout the world. There is a danger that if those who G-d draws time and time again refuse to listen, He will withdraw His spirit preventing their ability to hear and turning them over to believe a lie. Let those who have ears to hear, hear what the L-rd is saying in this last day and hour.

 

Matthew 10: 5-15

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.

13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

 

Notice the L-rd is not sending the disciples to the Gentiles. He is sending them to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. These are the 10 tribes of the northern kingdom after the death of Solomon. They were called the House of Israel, House of Joseph or House of Ephraim. He told them to tell these lost sheep of Israel that the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The demonstration of this was healing of the sick, raising of the dead, and casting out of devils.

 

When I first started into the ministry, the L-rd told me to tell the people that once again the kingdom of heaven was at hand. He also told me to demonstrate the same things that I have just mentioned. It is Him repeating exactly what He had done in the past. Not only repeating, but giving it to the House of Ephraim.

Those  refusing to hear ...

...dust shaken off against them.

Notice in the verse 14 that whosoever shall not hear the words, that the dust was to be shaken off of their feet against them. This had to be very serious because He said that it would be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that city.

 

It does not sound like the message is going to be received because He said that those that deliver this message will be scourged in the synagogues. It sounds exactly like what is going on today. The prophets are desperately trying to get Ephraim to wake up and realize who they are. Prophets are demonstrating the very things our L-rd said to demonstrate then.

 

Matthew 22: 37-40

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

The battle lines are being drawn between the true prophets and the Church. The Church is desperately trying to hang onto the traditions of man telling them that the Law was done away with the arrival of Yeshua and the shedding of His blood. Yet, even here Yeshua is talking about the Law and keeping it.

 Yeshua taught in parables...

...only those given the ability could hear.

Matthew 13: 1-17

1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.

2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

 

The disciples heard Yeshua teach in parables, and finally they came to Him and asked Him, "Why?" Yeshua told them that it was given unto them to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven but unto the others it was not given. In verse 12, He tells them that those who have been given this ability will have more abundance and the others will lose even what they do have. I can see this happening right now before our very eyes. Rejoice if you are among those with ears that are hearing what the L-rd is saying in this hour. In verse 16, Yeshua tells us that blessed are our eyes for they see; and our ears, for they hear.

Those who hear will have more abundance...

...those who don't will loose even what they do have. 

In verse 16, we see that there is hope for the rest of the people. At any time they should decide to see and hear, they will see and hear. It is a matter of decision, and the church has decisions being put before them by the prophets. What they decide will cause them to walk into this last-day move of G-d or reject it. 

 

Matthew 15: 1-9

1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Yeshua once again quoted the Commandments of   G-d. How does the church think by Him doing these kinds of things He is telling us we no longer have to keep the Commandments? The church has long since fallen into the doctrines of the commandments of men.

The Church has decisions being put before them by the Prophets...

...decisions that dictates who walks or rejects this last day move of G-d.

The church seems to think Paul was responsible for telling us that we were no longer under the Commandments (Law). The Church lacks understanding as to the laws governing the Pharisees. Paul, being a Pharisee, was bound to the Law because when he became a Pharisee he took an oath to uphold the Law. They would have liked nothing better than for Paul to have not kept the law. If that would have been the case then they could have stoned him to death because he would have broken the Law. Remember that Paul had become a Christian and that was against the beliefs of the known Pharisees of that day. Paul kept the Law!

Matthew 5: 17-20

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

 

Yeshua did not ever say that we were to do away with the Law.

 

Matthew 7: 13-23

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Yeshua tells us that the way leading into life is narrow and not wide. In verse 21, He is telling us that not everyone that says, "L-rd, L-rd" will enter into the kingdom of heaven. Remember, He is talking to those that are already thinking they are saved and probably filled with His Spirit. Yeshua is saying only those doing the will of His Father will enter in. What is the will of the Father? His Commandments, the Law. In verse 22, He says many will say they have prophesied, cast out devils, and done many wonderful works in His name.

Don't be among the one's that work iniquity...

...those that work against the Law.

Verse 23 tells us that He will profess to them that He never knew them. He says to depart from Him those that work iniquity. The interpretation here in this part of scripture is very poor to say the least. The correct interpretation here should read, "Ye that work against the Law." Can you see how strong this is? If this portion of scripture had been correctly interpreted, maybe all this nonsense of thinking that we as Christians have been released from keeping the Commandments (Law) could have been prevented.

Revelation 12: 17

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Those that keep the Commandments of G-d and the testimony of Jesus Christ is the remnant of these last days.

 We read again and again in the Book of Revelation...

...He that hath an ear, let him hear!

In the second and third chapters of the book of Revelation, we hear over and over again, "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." Again, we must realize not everyone has these ears that they can hear what G-d is saying to the churches.

John 8: 47

47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

Could this pertain to us today?

John 10: 1-5

1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

John 10: 14-16

14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

John 10: 25-29

25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

John 18: 37

37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

Pray for those who do not hear...

...that one day they'll decide to hear.

I pray that each of you that have read this article will stop and think of how blessed we are because G-d chose for us to be able to hear what He is saying in this day and hour. We must pray for those that do not have ears to hear. We must pray that one day they will decide to hear, and then the L-rd will open their ears, and they will also rejoice in what He is saying. Amen!
