THE SCALE ON THEIR EYES

I still cannot figure out Cain. He chose to walk on burning coals rather than gold. We showed him our beautiful streets… made of gold as clear as crystal. Our walls of jasper, precious stones and emerald did not catch his attention. We told him of our city flowing with milk and honey, whose builder and foundation is God. Esau was not interested, he walked ahead and ahead. “I shall satisfy only myself on this journey. I shall feast, rejoice and satisfy my soul” he said. We shook our head and walked away in disbelief. At the end he regretted, he prayed, he cried for repentance, but none was found. The gate had been shut. He has been weeping and gnashing his teeth in the torment of hellfire.
Judas chose a similar path. He switched from holiness road to death lane. A hundred miles an hour and he continued throttling straight ahead. Soon he was greeted by the fiercest flames ever seen. The serpent was there, worms were there and that old ravenous beast that waged war against the army of the righteous God. Judas wept, he screamed, he begged his saviour aloud. Can I come back my Lord? No coming back for him because the gate had been shut. In regret he bowed his head and waved salvation goodbye.
You remember Delilah? the most elegant and beautiful of them all. Her beauty was on the lips of many kings and princes. We showed her the light, but she ignored. She sold her oil and threw her lamp away. She would rather go on in outer darkness, crawling on the evil paths of wickedness. She followed Jezebel one step after another. The darkness got thicker but she continued. She moved past the den of evil spirits but continued. She went on and on till she ended up at the footstool of the devil… the deepest part of hades. With her colour faded and her elegance gone she is seeking for help. “If only I can get another chance.” No chance for Delilah because the gate had been shut.
I asked my saviour, why Lord? I warned Cain, I pleaded with Abel and I urged Delilah. He looked at me in amazement. “I have told you. They will not come to me till you remove the blindfold on their eyes…” The black eye scales have blinded them from seeing the glorious light of my kingdom.
2Cor4
4: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

    That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
    Please Lord help remove the scales the god of this world has used to blindfold our generation from seeing your marvellous light, and your grace that bringeth salvation. Scales in the form of Mammoth, Worldly lust and pleasure….etc.
