Does God Cause Some People’s Hearts to Be Hard? What About Pharaoh?

A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Eze 36:26

Do you know this scripture is talking about you?  If you are a Christian, you have this new heart available to you right now!  Did you notice that God said I will take out your “Stony” heart?   Isn’t a “stony” heart a formerly hard hearted person?  This again can be taken incorrectly, as something that God is solely responsible for making happen.  Some people still think like God is the spiritual surgeon who does a spiritual heart transplant surgical procedure in every believer!   But, that would not be a good interpretation of this verse based upon what we have learned.  God says I will replace your stony heart with a soft tender heart of flesh.

Six Things Satan Doesn’t Want You To Know About Himself

The Agapegeek Blog

(ver 1.7)  This Part 1 in a series of Bible lessons about things that Satan does not want you know about him.  Satan in the Bible is called by so many different names, titles, characteristics, symbols and descriptions.  Each one of these that were given to us by God reveal Satan in a new way for us to learn from.  For example, in Revelation 12:9 the name Satan is given to us and it is directly linked to be the symbolic “Great Red Dragon” in the book of Revelation.  Satan is then further revealed as the “ancient serpent” in Genesis 3:1 in the same verse.  Since Satan is called both the serpent in the garden in Genesis and now the Great Dragon in Revelation we learn from these two symbolic titles that he has gained significant power and strength.  But maybe you did not know that and learned something brand new.   In other places in the Bible Satan…
