      The hearing ear, and the seeing eye,
      the LORD hath made even both of them.
      (Proverbs 20:12) 

      all His glory

      ut He does. the same God that made the eye can open it and close it.

      Why, LORD, do you make us wander from your ways and harden our hearts so we do not revere you?
      Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes that are your inheritance.
      (Isaiah 63:17) 

      why was Israel hardened? for our sake, so that grace could be shown to us, and through us, to Israel as well: 

      I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and in this way all Israel will be saved.
      (Romans 11:25-26) 

      so that it should not be by human will or effort, but by mercy. that salvation comes from the Lord alone. 

       
    • Daniel 8
      Yes there are parallels: Dan 2   Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome (ten toes = Rome's new capital) Dan 7  Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome  (little horn = Romes new capital) Dan 8   Persia, Greece Dan 11   1-35   Greece Dan 11    36-45   Future antichrist (Rome's new capital)
    • Daniel 8
      8 And the he-goat magnified himself exceedingly: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and instead of it there came up four notable horns toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the glorious land.   I see this as exceedingly greater than the other 3 horns of Greece.  We have to remain consistent with the symbols, and an animal represents a kingdom/empire. A horn represents a division/king within that empire. So this is all about Greece. If Rome was in view, we would have ANOTHER animal after the goat, as with the 4 part leopard in Daniel 7 followed by the great beast of Daniel 7.   Instead this little horn comes from the four part kingdom that relates to the leopard in Daniel 7. The focus on Daniel 7 was another later little horn, the antichrist, besides who Antiochus becomes insignificant. So the other less significant little horn is not mentioned in Daniel 7.    But now that Antiochus is clearly mentioned in a context which contrasts with Daniel 7, suddenly history gives the church huge clues as to the nature of the future antichrist, because we can see the nature of his forerunner from Greece, as described in Daniel 8. He's from Syria. He manipulates the Jews into fitting in with the surrounding culture which was Hellenistic at the time. (Now its Islamic). He desecrates the temple. He accepts and commands worship. The future little horn will do much of the same.    Although I do respect the knowledge of the SDA's, I do not agree with their historicist views, seeing days as representing years.  I think this dilutes both the 1150 days of Antiochus, and the 3.5 years of the future great tribulation, mentioned many times in Daniel and Revelation and by reference in Matthew 24.
    • Trump threatens to sue Cruz
      I like Rand Paul.  He was my clear second choice behind Cruz.  My wife likes Kasich best.  He is too establishment for me, but I would have no problem supporting him if he got the nomination.
