Hearts have ears AND EYES!???

Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Isaiah 6:10

For my son’s health class we are watching a series of videos about the human body entitled “Body of Evidence.”   The last one we watched was specifically about the heart.  I sat there in wonder and awe of the masterfully designed and intricately created organ the size of a human fist.  I had an ultrasound of my heart a few years back and can remember feeling that same sense of awe as I sat there and watched my own small but powerful heart beat and pulse and squeeze blood out into the lungs and the rest of my body.  I can remember feeling very fond of my heart at that moment.

I love my heart!

Getting back to the video, there was one part of the lecture where the teacher. Dr. David Menton, mentioned that the heart has ears, literally!  He then pointed out two areas on the top of the heart that have the appearance of a human ear.  He said they are used to store blood.

Dr. Menton also pointed out the coronary arteries.  They are the arteries that surround (from the Greek “corona” – crowns) the heart.  As we re learned this information my son said, “I’ll bet they look like a crown of thorns!”

Son of a gun if they didn’t!

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.       Romans 1:6

Jesus had human eyes and ears as he hung on the cross. In love, His heart, with it’s ears and eyes, pumped all of the blood out of his body through the wounds on his back, head, hands and feet, all for the forgiveness of the world’s sin.   Despite the extreme stress to that small organ, with it, He could see and hear those who taunted and mocked him, but in the background he could also see and hear those who believe.

And when He arose…he had those same eyes and ears…and heart!

I pray in accord with Paul:

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints…  Eph 1:18

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
