Jesus' example shows us that it is important to discern those that do not have ears to hear to what is being shared. There can be many reasons why one would not have ears to hear. Anywhere from not being interested to just being too busy at the moment with other pressing matters and the like. One that may not have ears to hear today, may, on the other hand be open at a more opportune time. Regardless the reason, Jesus did not pressure those that were not interested.
Jesus, so many times as He was ministering to those around Him, would say …“He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”. Jesus demonstrated that those that have ears to hear will hear and the ones that didn’t, He left alone. Clearly, there is a serious warning for those that did not take to heart His words. Consider, who were some of those that did not hear and would not listen to what Jesus had to say? Was not some of them, the most Scripturally educated and considered Godly men of that day? And weren't some of them also trusting in those that was looked upon as Godly, and neither had ears to hear the words of Jesus? Even though, they physically heard Him, but they did not hear Him with their heart. And take notice that Jesus did not chase after them, it was their choice to listen, or not to listen, with their heart as to what He was saying. Scripture tells us in Hebrews 13:8. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Here's my point! Today we have the Holy Spirit and if we place our trust in those that are thought of, as Godly, rather than being taught by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, are we any different than those of that day, I don't think so! Christ is not going to force divine truths, through the indwelling Holy Spirit to those that are not listening, regardless how they're viewed by man.
1 John 2:26. These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. 27. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
Jeremiah 17:5. Thus says the Lord: ..."Cursed is the man who trust in man and make flesh his strength, whose hear departs from the Lord. One cannot trust in the Holy Spirit of God and man, it's one or the other! Consider: 1 Corinthians 1:26. For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called. Clearly, a proud heart will deafen one's ears to hear the anointing of God's Holy Spirit.
