Even though the sacrificial system has been destroyed for 2,000 years,Israel as a nation cannot recognize that Yah’shua put a stop to it and thattheir temple was torn completely down, just as He prophecied it would be.For the very one who rent the veil in two, put an obvious end to it, and yetthey cannot see it. But who blinded them? Read on please.
2 Cor 3:15 Yes, down to this [very] day whenever Moses is read, aveil lies upon their minds and hearts.
But whenever a personturns [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and takenaway.
Now we know from what Jesus said, no one can strip away the veil and leadsomeone to repentance (the Cross) unless they are drawn to it by theFather, and the veil is stripped away. They recognize the wretchedness of their sin, their need of a Savior, and that Yah’shua Himself is in fact, theSavior, Who becomes Lord of their life.But who blinded Israel?
Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which heseeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest wereblindedRom 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spiritof slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they shouldnot hear;) unto this day.
There it is, plain as day. Paul here is referencing not 2 Cor 4:4, but Isaiah…
Isa 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
How many witnesses is that? Two? Now remember, there is NO Biblereference of satan ever blinding anyone. And above we have the scripture of 2 Cor 4:4, Romans 11:7,8, and Isaiah 29:10. How many witnesses is that? 3witnesses! “So what are you trying to say, Bro. Lahry”? Good question. I believe theBible clearly shows and all should understand that only Elohim is the “God” of this world and all worlds past present and future. But what really bothersme about all of this, is that the Apostle Paul uses up a lot of text in 2 Cor 3and 4, plus what he had to say in Romans to emphasize that Israel wasindeed blind to their Messiah, veiled then and now.
