“The Seeing Eye And Hearing Ear”
ByJ.M. Little
“The hearing ear, and the
seeing eye, the LORD hath
made even both of them.’'
(PRov. 20:12).
Our subject is “The Seeing
Eye and Hearing Ear.’’ Now
you may ask, doesn’t every
body have eyes to see and ears
to hear? No, they don’t. The
seeing eye and hearing ear
spoken of in this Scripture and
others we will bring to your
attention are created by the
Lord in the new birth. Only
those bom again have eyes to
see and ears to hear in spirit
ual matters.
The reason the multitudes of
you cannot agree with the
truth I set forth from week to
week in these messages is that
you do not have eyes to see
these things. Only those bom
again can see them. With your
natural understanding you ne
ver will see them. " I am
speaking in the spiritual rea
lm, out of the things the Holy
Spirit has taught me, and you
are a natural man trying to
understand spiritual things
wfs your natural faculties,
you’ll never understand the
truth that way. 4
“And He turned Him unto
His disciples, and said PRI
VATELY, Blessed are the
eyes which see the things that
ye see: For I tell you, that
many prophets and kings 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.” <Lk.
10:23, 24). What grace bestow
ed upon the children of the
Lord. The believer sees
through the eyes of the Lord.
And
unless you too see through the
eyes of the Lord you will
always find yourself in opposi
tion to the things the believer
tells you of.
When the Lord first creates
a seeing eye and hearing ear
in one of His elect what is the
first thing the elect sinner
sees? The elect sinner sees his
dead and lost condition (Eph.
2:1, Lk. 19:10). Then as the
Holy Spirit opens your eyes
more and more you begin to
see your sin of unbelief, the
judgment you are under, and
that you have po righteous
ness* that WjB you to
hea\*i> (John 16^-n).
I When a cmil folic- mn- T
no harm in this or that thing
I’m doing, I know right off the
poor soul has never been given
seeing eyes by the Lord. As
long as you are in the natural
you will always be telling God
what you think is sin and what
is not. But if the Holy Spirit
ever makes you alive to the
fact you are lost, and that you
are an ungodly sinner, you will
shut your mouth and listen to
Him. Some of you are not
saved because you will not
shut your mouth and take your
place before God as a guilty
sinner. You know too much to
get saved!
"Who hath ears to hear, let
him hear." (Matt. 13:9). When
I read Scriptures like that
many years ago I had no idea
what the Lord was talking
about, why? I was only in the
natural and trying to under
stand the Word of God with my
natural faculties. When a sin
ner is given the Effectual Call
by the Holy Spirit (Jn. 5:25),
thdvhe can hear what the
J. M. Little
Lord speaks to him. Until you
are called effectually, you
cannot hear one word from the
Lord. I'll make this state
ment; practically one hundred
percent of our preachers and
religious leaders do not have
the seeing eye and hearing ear
that the Lord creates in the
new birth. That is why you
have substituted man made
methods of salvation.
Brother, if the Lord ever
gives you eyes to see yourself
as you are before Him, you are
going to quake in your boot
straps. On the road to Damas
cus (Acts 9) Saul of Tarsus
was blinded naturally, but
made to see spiritually. You
thought Saul was only blinded
on the Damascus road didn't
you? Saul was awakened to
the fact he was lost on the
Damascus road. A lot of prea
chers think Saul was saved on
that road but that is what you
think because you don’t know
the Effectual Call and Holy
Spirit conviction.
i :__ _
seeing eye you see things you
never dreamed of. You see
that not only you are lost and
under the judgment of a sin
avenging God, but the whole
world is under judgment. Ha
ve you ever seen that? You eee
come to see that all your past
religious duties and works
were just an abomination in
the sight of God. You come to
Ot tyat if^ttx>
saved th< Lord will have to^do’
it all. And you stand there
amazed at all the Holy Spirit is
showing you about your totally
depraved condition. You once
thought you had some good
ness in you that would get you
into the kingdom at last. Now
you see you had nothing but
filthy rags (Isa. 64:6). You cry
out; or wretched man that I
am! You see yourself so wick
ed you think there is no hope
for you, and there isn’t any
hope in Christ. If the Lord
were going to damn you in
Hell He would not be tenderly
pleading with you and showing
you your lost condition. Don’t
resist the drawings and con
victions of the Holy Spirit.
It's the greatest thing in all
this world to know Christ as
Lord and Saviour. If you know
Him, then you are seeing
through His eyes and you are
listening to His voice. The
Lord said in John 10 that the
sheep hear His voice and
follow Him. Have you heard
the voice of the Lord? If you
^Jiave^hen^oujireMfollowin^
Him instead of the world.
All the world, religious and
secular is following all this
idolatry (Xmas) that came
out of the heathen of Bablyon
(Jer. 10). If you ever hear thS
voice of the Lord you will
come out of that heathen
tradition! The Lord reigneth
from the tree, the Xmas tree.
Satan imitates everything the
Lord does. Even Judas was
hanged from a tree, there you
see Satan's man dying on a
tree in mockery of the Lord
dying on a tree.
I pray that the Lord will give
you eyes to see the lost condi
tion you are in, and ears to
hear what He has to tell you
about yourself that you may
come to know Him as your’
Lord and Saviour.
Let me give you another
truth in passing; after the
Lord was risen only the elect
on the earth saw Him in His
bodily resurrection. The un
saved did not see Him after He
was risen. Did you know that?
He appeared to above five
hundred at one time. We may
go into that at another time.
These things I tell you from
week to week, I'm not speak
ing from what some man
taught me, but what the Lord
has taught me. I never dre
amed of these things years
ago. Salvation is a Divine
Work of grace wrought in the
heart by the Holv_Spirit. Sal
inaljgxga gfpfes
siotfluid Jdininfptbe church
Practically every church
member lives in the world, no
separation. But, if the Lord
ever lays hold of your heart
for salvation there will come a
great separation.
