Emotional Hearers

Bible Questions Answered:
“...I heard some one say “emotional hearers,” what are those?”
Pat/ London, England United Kingdom

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

An affective state of consciousness in which joy, sorrow, fear, hate, or the like, is experienced, as distinguished from cognitive and volitional states of consciousness.

People ruled by their emotions, rather than by cognitive (The mental processes of reasoning and knowing.) abilities.

Thus our Lord said...

Emotional Hearers
Mark 4:1-8 KJV
1 And He began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto Him a great multitude, so that He entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
2 And He taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in His doctrine,
3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
8 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

Other Examples:

On the shores of Galilee, Jesus had spent the day teaching and healing the multitudes, and it was getting to be late.
Because the multitudes would not go back home, He gave His disciples orders to depart to the other side of the lake, and here is one reason why...

John 6:3,15 KJV
3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.
15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take Him by force, to make Him a king, He departed again into a mountain Himself alone.

Emotional Hearers
Matthew 8:19,20 NLT
19 Then one of the teachers of religious law said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”
20 But Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but
The Son Of Man has no place even to lay His head.”

“Pastor, wasn't this wonderful, the eagerness of this man?”

No. Our Lord's response, shows that He was “not,” pleased! Jesus had not come to incite "fans for the kingdom" (Emotional Hearers), He had come to call disciples who would be willing to live and die for the kingdom of God.

Living for The Lord, involves a lot more for someone than just being a cheering fan of The Lord!
Living for The Lord, means making Him The Master of their life.
Living for The Lord, means making Him The Lord of their home.
Living for The Lord, means taking Him, with them everyday without exception, on the job.
Living for The Lord, means taking Him, and honoring Him, at all their social gatherings
Living for The Lord, means willingness to bear the cross of death to self, and taking the path of life in The Lord.

Emotional Hearers
Mark 10:17-22 KJV (The Rich Young Ruler)
17 And when He was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to Him, and asked Him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor thy father and mother.
20 And he answered and said unto Him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest:

Go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and

Come, take up the cross, and follow Me.

22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

The rich young ruler had much “enthusiasm,” but he had “not,” counted the cost of following
The Lord Jesus.

Luke 11:27 KJV
And it came to pass, as He spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto Him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

OK, Jesus, are you onboard with this acclamation?
Mary, isn't she most blessed, and holy, worthy to be worshipped?? Co-redemptrix, what say ye?

No, Jesus was “not,” onboard with this saying!
Jesus alone is Savior!

Isaiah 42:8 KJV
I am The Lord: that is My name: and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images.
Acts 4:10-12 KJV
10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of
Jesus Christ Of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead...
11 This is The Stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become
The Head Of The Corner.
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

John 14:6 KJV
Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life: no man cometh unto
The Father, but by Me.

For all who would like to read soooo much more on this subject
When there look for the book “Salvation We Are Not Afraid!

This womans response was an emotional response!
“Really, what did Jesus say?

Luke 11:27,28 KJV
27 And it came to pass, as He spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto Him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
28 But He (Jesus) said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear The Word Of God, and keep it.

Emotional Hearers
Galatians 4:15 NLT
15 Where is that joyful and grateful spirit you felt then? I am sure you would have taken out your own eyes and given them to me if it had been possible.

At the beginning the Galatians enthusiasm knew no bounds.

16 Have I now become your enemy because I am telling you The Truth?
17 Those false teachers are so eager to win your favor, but their intentions are not good. They are trying to shut you off from me so that you will pay attention only to them.
18 If someone is eager to do good things for you, that’s all right; but let them do it all the time, not just when I’m with you.
19 Oh, my dear children! I feel as if I’m going through labor pains for you again, and they will continue until Christ is fully developed in your lives.

The Galatians had begun with great enthusiasm, but Judaizing teachers had crept in to separate the Galatians from the apostle Paul, and his Christ centered teachings.

The Apostle said “Oh, my dear children! I feel as if I’m going through labor pains for you again, and they will continue until Christ is fully developed in your lives.”

The Galatians, needed to grow from just enthusiasm to spiritual maturity.

So, where does this find us today, dear follower of Jesus Christ?
Are you a fan, or are you a disciple? Someone counting well, the cost of faithfully following The Lord Jesus Christ, yes even by a cross to follow Him?

Mark 10:21 KJV
"...come, take up the cross, and follow Me.
