"God has given them a spirit of stupor"
Text: Romans 11:8
The malady of spiritual blindness was not given a whole lot of attention by (physical) Israel! The nation believed that it was enlightened (Cf. Romans 2:1-4). Paul’s assessment was quite different. He went on to cite the Scriptures for proof of his teaching on Israel’s spiritual blindness.
“Just as it is written:
God has given them a spirit of stupor,
Eyes that they should not see
And ears that they should not hear,
To this very day.”
