Matthew 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isiah, which says, By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive:
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.
The parable of the Sower and the Seed, Matthew 13:16-23 shows most of the world does not get converted at this time.
Matthew 13:16 And blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear,
Matthew 13:17 For truly I say to you, that many prophets and righteous ones longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
Matthew 13:18 You, then, hear the parable of the sower:
Matthew 13:19 When anyone hears the word of the reign, (kingdom) and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is that sown by the wayside.
Matthew 13:20 And that sown on rocky places is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy,
Matthew 13:21 yet he has no root in himself but is short-lived, and when pressure or persecution arises because of the Word, immediately he stumbles.
Matthew 13:22 And that sown among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the worry of this age and the deceit of riches choke the word, and it becomes fruitless.
Matthew 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
According to Scripture, only a select few are being given spiritual sight to understand the Scriptural warfare that is going on now.
II Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
II Thessalonians 2:10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
II Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause Elohim shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
