Isaiah 6:He said, “Go and tell this people:

“‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding;
    be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’
10 Make the heart of this people calloused;
    make their ears dull
    and close their eyes.[a]
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.”

11 Then I said, “For how long, Lord?”

And he answered:

“Until the cities lie ruined
    and without inhabitant,
until the houses are left deserted
    and the fields ruined and ravaged,
12 until the Lord has sent everyone far away
    and the land is utterly forsaken.

The wisdom of ears -part 3

            We live in a world of so called “mass communication”. Unfortunately, we are much like people trying to communicate with each other each in a different language. Many of my older readers recall a time when certain “languages” were commonly understood. The language of finance, the language of reason, of diplomacy etc.

            Isaiah’s communication was to be with a people who had forsaken and forgotten the “language” of righteousness. Much like the people of today the Israelites had forsaken their cultural identity for the day to day, constant, ongoing evil all around them. They had lost all sensibility of what is right and had embraced every vile thing that suggested itself to them.

            This then was the world which Isaiah and every prophet of God since then has been called to speak into. When Jesus commanded us to “make disciples” He knew full well that it would involve teaching righteousness as a second language.
