Turn to Luke Chapter 9

LUK 9:51-53, And it came about, when the days were approaching for His ascension, that He resolutely set His face to go to Jerusalem; and He sent messengers on ahead of Him. And they went, and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make arrangements for Him. And they did not receive Him, because He was journeying with His face toward Jerusalem.

LUK 9:54-56, And when His disciples James and John saw {this,} they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” But He turned and rebuked them, [and said, “You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. “]And they went on to another village.

Reason doesn’t change hearts

JUD 5:5, HAB 3:6, MAT 27:51

He Still Moves Stones

Reason doesn’t change hearts

MAT 15:19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders

JAM 4:1-5, What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. And you are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”?

JER 17:9 The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?

JOH 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.

2CH 32:31, And even in the matter of the envoys of the rulers of Babylon, who sent to him to inquire of the wonder that had happened in the land, God left him alone only to test him, that He might know all that was in his heart.

2CO 5:14 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died;

Human will cannot change a heart

God still moves stones
