Who was He? In His Word  6-4-18

While reading today in the Word of God I realized something, I mean, I had read it before but it stood out to me today; they excommunicated a min who was miraculously healed from blindness.
My first thought was “What where they thinking? If someone was miraculously healed it had to be of God!”

Although after re-reading a few times I realized that the people who did not believe were actually blinded to the truth. I found that ironic!
The blind saw and the sight was taken from the leaders who could only see I the physical.

 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.  I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” John 9:1-5

Jesus knew of course that they would not believe. And he knew they would be asking about it; He probably purposefully did not give the now seeing man his name.
 When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing. Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, “Is not this he who sat and begged?”
Some said, “This is he.” Others said,   “He is like him.”
He said, “I am he.
Therefore they said to him, “How were your eyes opened?”                             He answered and said, “A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and I received sight.”  Then they said to him, “Where is He?”
He said, “I do not know.”
They brought him who formerly was blind to the Pharisees. Now it was a Sabbath when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. Then the Pharisees also asked him again how he had received his sight. He said to them, “He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.”
Therefore some of the Pharisees said, “This Man is not from God, because He does not  keep the Sabbath.”
Others said, “How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?” And there was a division among them.
 They said to the blind man again, “What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?”
He said, “He is a prophet.” John 9:6-17
Who was this man who could do that which God could do and heal? Do you not just want to go back I time and tell them “Hello? Do you know your own scriptures?”

If we are honest with ourselves today we could ask ourselves the same questions; who is the one who heals us when we are sick? Is it a doctor? Or is it really God?
Was it not God who gave the doctors knowledge to know how to do things?
Is not God capable of doing things like this as well today? Yes He is!
I have been healed without knowledge of how or why before, aside from the faith of a few close friends there is no reason to my knowledge of why God chose to heal my torn rotator cuff. Still it baffled the surgeon who could not find the tear that was clearly there before we prayed!
Sometimes Doctors will be sure that someone got the wrong information before they will accept that it was an act of God. My doctor just wasn’t sure. He just could not find it, and the nurse came to see me after and allowed me to testify of it. Is this something I should share? Yes for sure! God heals us today! Also some may ask why I had surgery if it was healed. There were other issues from a former pedestrian vs car accident that came out during their search for the tear; they found a broken bone fragment floating around. They removed it and fixed another bone issue while there! I would have suffered with pain from those two things for much longer than the healing of the tear if they had found one!
My God is able today to heal us! Sometimes it takes time, mud or water but sometimes it is in an instant when we touch the hem of His garment.

Who was he? Who was this Man called Jesus? The same God He is today!  He can an d will heal today if we but have the faith to trust Him to do so!
All they did was ask!

Dear heavenly Father, have mercy on us today and forgive us our doubts and heal us. Open our hearts, minds, and our eyes to see. In Jesus name, amen.
