PEOPLE HEAR WHAT THEY WANT to hear. I had a conversation with someone recently that heard something I said to another person. They asked me if what they heard was accurate. I said, “no”. It was somewhat of the truth, but not the whole truth and very much taken out of context and pertinent information was left out. Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t “beat around the bush”. I am very direct. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I’ve been accused of being too bold or “brash”. Well, maybe at times the message comes across harsh, but I don’t always know how to tame down what I’m saying.

My heart’s desire is for truth and to lead and guide others in the right path. All that to say, I told them, “I did not say that. They heard only what they wanted to hear.” This is what we are told throughout Scripture- people have ears but they do not hear. People that don’t like what you tell them have selective hearing. They only hear in part. The OT prophets dealt very much with this phenomenon among the people of God, “The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, you are living among a rebellious house. They have eyes to see but do not see, and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious house.”‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭HCSB

‬‬Selective hearing is rampant among God’s people in today’s society. In fact, prophecy tells us that in the latter days people will have “itching ears”. In other words, selective hearing. Jesus says to the seven churches, seven times, “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” You would think you’d tune your hearing after the first time He said it; but seven times means something. This is serious business. This is real. This is a warning. These days require that you tune and adjust your hearing.

We are warned that the latter days would be perilous because of the deception that will be let loose in society. This deception will be so dark and thick that even the elect can be deceived. I’m seeing this all around. The truth is being twisted, distorted, perverted and the most dangerous, a lie is misrepresented as the truth. We are a nation under judgment and God has given us over to our ways. I’ve been blowing the trumpet for a long time now and not many are hearing the alarm. Maybe you can’t hear? Buy a hearing aid. Whatever it takes to adjust your hearing so you’re not swept away with the tide of the wicked.

We don’t do, act, say, think or live like the world. If worldly and fearful people are speaking into your ear, hang up the phone and shut out that voice. Fear is a horrible master. I’ve warned you to turn off the news- these are the prophets of Baal. I saw America fall back when Obama flew the rainbow flag on the White House and I warned you.

I saw a thick dark cloud coming over the world back in Jan of 2020 before the outbreak and I warned you. I saw a grooming process through the government mandates and I warned you. I saw pink clouds representing a socialist government system and I warned you. I told you that the Seabeast of Revelation 13 was a government system. I saw a famine, inflation and a shortened supply of food coming and I warned you. I saw a passport created in order to buy food and I warned you. I warned you of sorcery in Pharmekia. I warned you to not forsake the gathering, that online services was not the gathering of the church. I warned you to respect the House of the Lord, His communion, His ministers, His baptism, His Word and all His ways.

I warned you to come out of Babylon, to repent of your apathy and lukewarm ways. But many just smiled at me and said, “I’ll pray about that”. Do you not see? Did you not hear the alarm? Who have you been listening to? There is worse coming. “Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.

He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. “As for you, son of man, the children of your people are talking about you beside the walls and in the doors of the houses; and they speak to one another, everyone saying to his brother, ‘Please come and hear what the word is that comes from the Lord.’ So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain. Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them. And when this comes to pass—surely it will come—then they will know that a prophet has been among them.”” Ezekiel‬ ‭33:1-5, 30-33‬ ‭I’m not the only one sounding the alarm. There are many saying the same, but will you hear? Or are you only hearing what you want to hear?#runyourrace
