37 Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. 38 This was to fulfil the word of Isaiah the prophet:
‘Lord, who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?’ (Isaiah 53:1)
39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:
‘He has blinded their eyes
and hardened their hearts,
so they can neither see with their eyes,
nor understand with their hearts,
nor turn – and I would heal them.’
41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about him.
Remember, Isaiah lived hundreds of years before Christ’s birth and foretold of these things and of Christ’s birth and the manner of his death. So who told him? Don’t you yet see that prophetic messages come from God? Yet you still refuse to believe? If you feel that God is calling out to you, if you feel in your hearts that there is something more than this life and that there is a heaven to be gained and a hell to be shunned then believe your heart. Reach out to God and He will reach out to you. Seek Him whilst he may be found, before it is too late. Remember it is never too late whilst you have the breath of life in you but once you die it will be. Come to Jesus and be saved for all eternity.
