End the Discussion: Repentance and Hardening

There is a time to preach NOT for dialogue, debate, or discussion.

There is a time to end discussion and preach for repentance and hardening.

To express Gods Word so that those who are humble can repent and grow in righteousness, and those who are prideful can harden their hearts and continue to advance in sin.

John 9
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?

41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

Matthew 13
15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
