Welcome to New Eyes to See
On the face of it, when Jesus made the following statement in Matthew 13:15-16 you’d be forgiven for being slightly confused:
“For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them. But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.”
However, if you read this scripture in context (and I’d encourage you to) it is clear that God is pleading with his chosen people, Israel, to open their eyes and ears to what he is telling them.
Over time, their tradition, man-made rules, and other cultures, had effectively blinded them to Bible truth and God’s voice.
They had hardened their hearts. So much so, that a determination not to listen to God or his prophets meant they completely failed to recognise their saviour, Jesus Christ.
A warning from history
But that’s Israel, right? We know the story and we know the majority of Jewish people continued in their blindness by crucifying Jesus and rejecting his apostles. With the benefit of hindsight, it’s easy to wonder how they got it so wrong.
Surely there is no way we could be guilty of falling into the same trap? Surely there is no way that tradition, deceit and the world, could again blind God’s chosen people to the truth of scripture?
Could fatal errors be literally staring us right in the face because we are viewing things through the eyes of man, not the eyes of the Bible?

You may find yourself challenged, but please do not fall into the trap of hardening your heart. Instead, I invite you to read (preferably chapter by chapter for context), check the facts, pray over it, consult the Bible, and let the spirit lead you.
Finally, never forget that the Word of God and the spirit are the only guide you’ll ever need. This site will lay out some facts, based on Bible truth and easily verifiable evidence that’s freely available, easily checked, and often hidden in plain sight.
I’d highly recommend that you view this site in combination with the links provided – they provide vital evidence of the subjects this site covers and are essential to understanding what I’m talking about.
These links are provided to save you time searching through the internet jungle, so you avoid pitfalls and misleading content, but I’d also encourage you to do your own research.
If anything surprises you, be reassured that you are not alone. I’m often staggered at how I remained so utterly blind for the vast majority of my life.
I prayed for God to open my eyes. He did.
