December 18 Echoes of Eternity
Wherefore, as the Holy Spirit saith, Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.
My word to you is this: Today if you hear My word, do not harden your heart. The encrustation of self-defense is like corrosion on metal. It forms a protective and insulating barrier against the truth. In the meantime its corrosive effect is also at work, tearing down even the good that has already been done. This is why I said in the Scripture, “The latter state is worse than the first.” The deadness, torpor, the inability to be inwardly moved—these are indicators that
damage has already been done.
There is no sin that does a more deadly work to the soul than hardening the heart. So I say again, “Today if you hear My word, do not harden your heart. He that has ears to hear, let him hear.”
