Hardened Heart and Hardened Arteries

Hardened heart

The hardened heart

Pastor Flemons discussed Mark 3:1-6. In this story of the man with the withered hand who was healed by Christ, we see that Christ was grieved because of the hardness of their hearts. See vs. 5.

Pastor Flemons then took us to several scriptures in Exodus wherein it was stated that God hardened Pharoah’s heart. In each case we see that God was merely performing miracles and Pharaoh was responding in a negative way to the miracles. Thus the hardened heart is a heart that responds wrongly to the miracles of God. He has done so much for each of us and these miracles are designed to seal our decision as to whether we will serve Him.

Supporting Scriptures follow.

Mark 3:1   And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.  2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.  3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. 4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.  5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.  6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him. 

Ex. 4:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go. 

Ex. 7:3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt. 

Ex. 14:4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And they did so. 

Ex. 14:17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

Sharing and Caring

True confession is always of a specific character, and acknowledges particular sins. They may be of such a nature as to be brought before God only; they may be wrongs that should be confessed to individuals who have suffered injury through them; or they may be of a public character, and should then be as publicly confessed. But all confession should be definite and to the point, acknowledging the very sins of which you are guilty. { SC 38.1}

“There is a vast difference between admitting facts after they have been proved and confessing sins known only to ourselves and to God.” Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 498

“But there are those among us who will make confessions, as did Achan, too late to save themselves.” Testimonies, Volume 3, p. 272
