... line upon line ... Isaiah 28:10
Isaiah 33:15 … that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; …
Isaiah is describing the characteristics that mark true believers. In his day, there were many pretenders that did not have the outward traits of a genuine child of God, though they claimed they were such. It is to be noted that God does not want His children dwelling on wickedness, brooding over the carnal deeds of others, fretting about the unrighteous acts of the irreligious.
Please let me give you a timely reminder, a warning if you will: I fully understand that this world is currently awash with a rising tide of strange thoughts, actions, regulations, laws, violations of liberty, oppression and repression of free speech. Nations seem to be jostling for position to step into the Tribulation immediately after the rapture. World leaders are not listening carefully to the requests of their people. Large multi-national corporations appear to be directing the course of life.
But YOU MUST NOT get your eyes focused on these things, or you will surely stop ‘looking unto Jesus’. Many are talking about these things more than the Saviour, praying about these things more than the Kingdom of God, sharing ‘information’ at a greater rate and with a greater fervency than they do for the gospel. Beloved, this ought not so to be done!
The righteous person neither desires to hear of such things more than he has to, nor see the evil around him more than is necessary to avoid it. He does not want his mind polluted, grieved, sullied. Indeed, Paul wrote to the Ephesians and reminded them of this very fact, actually a commandment from Almighty God – For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Be wise, like the Issacharites have knowledge about how to act, know what is happening around you, be informed, but again I admonish you: if you are spending more time researching, thinking, talking and sharing information about our current world situation than you are giving out the good news of the gospel of Christ, more than you are admonishing yourselves with the Word of God in your own home (Joshua 1;8), more than you are singing to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, your eyes HAVE come off Jesus Christ.
It is a statement of fact, not conjecture. Of Scriptural admonition, not preference.
