They see their sin because they aren’t under grace. Their righteousness is of their own, through what they know. They once didn’t see their sin, but have fallen from grace walking in what they know. They know by what they heard not hearing. They aren’t abiding in the new covenant of grace. The letter of the law condemns kills, the spirit that came after Christ went to the cross gives grace and life.
This describes the Jews that don’t believe Christ died for their sins. It also describes someone that knows the word and doesn’t continue in it. Continuing in it means reading it daily. Our daily bread feeds the soul. If you starve your soul it will die.
Pharisees study but only the old if they are a Jew. This makes them a scholar of the law but of the shed blood they have no clue. There is power in that blood to cleanse away all sin. The red letters in new testament represent the blood once you start to read them they will cover you. Faith comes by reading the word. There’s an anionting that comes when you read it to study. Studying shows you to be approved by God. Because you are hungering and thrusting after righteousness. This is you’re reading to really get to know God. You are wanting a relationship. Not just reading to read. You will see the truth and it will set you free. Scriptures bring eternal life, by cleansing you of unrighteousness and bring conviction to keep you from sin.
A Pharisee looks good on the outside but inside is unclean.
So many that don’t open the Bible say I’m a good person God will save me. But, they are just like that Pharisee going by what they know and have heard. Not by what they are hearing.
Now ask yourself. Do I see, or am I a Pharisee? I once was blind but now I see. My chains are gone I’ve been set free, amazing love unending grace.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
After reading this you see that unless you read the word of God you will not have access to God in your prayers or to heaven. The word says the only way to the Father is through the son the word John 1:1 states that the son is the word of God. This is saying the only way is through Jesus/Yeshua by abiding in his word and being covered by his blood. Open your bible the red letters are the blood of Jesus/Yeshua flowing through the pages. To be covered by the blood you must be in the word of God, his blood will flow through the pages to cover you.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Without correction from the word of God sin will get strong on our lives. It will become a stronghold and turn into iniquity. This is why Jesus/Yeshua says.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
