That is right, they see a life that has been changed by the power of God.

In Romans 11:7-9 Paul speaks of Israel's failure to obtain the righteousness and salvation “it desired”: "Israel failed to obtain what it sought. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened, as it is written, "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, down to this very day." Even though it is the command of God that his people see and hear and respond in faith (Isaiah 42:18), nevertheless God also has his reasons for sending a spirit of stupor at times so that some will not obey his command.

In Mark 4:11-12 Jesus said to his disciples, "To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those OUTSIDE everything is in parables; so that they may indeed see BUT NOT PERCEIVE, and may indeed hear BUT NOT UNDERSTAND; lest they should turn again, and be forgiven." His will is that they turn and be forgiven (Mark 1:15), but he acts in a way to restrict the fulfillment of that will. Gods will is that no one perish and all come to repentance on one hand but he speaks in parables to some so they do not PERCEIEVE not UNDERSTAND thus restricting the fulfillment of that will.

In Romans 11:25-26 Paul says, "Lest you be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, brethren: a hardening has come upon part of Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles come in, and so all Israel will be saved." The fact that the hardening has an appointed end —"until the full number of the Gentiles comes in"— shows that it is part of God's plan rather than a merely contingent event outside God's purpose. Nevertheless Paul expresses not only his but also God's heart when he says in Romans 10:1, "My heart's desire and prayer to God for them - Israel is their salvation." God holds out his hands to a rebellious people (Romans 10:21), but ordains a hardening that consigns them for a time to disobedience.

Does God initiate the hardening with a spirit of stupor first, or do human beings first initiate the hardening due to their refusal to hear and obey? I believe the latter to be true. In other words, God says "have it your way".
