New Eyes

John 9 parallels

Jesus made mud and put it on the man’s eyes. Man was mad from mud, so Jesus was repairing the eyes the way God formed man.

He only did what He saw the Father do.

He was at creation and was an active participant in the works.

The religious leaders (they didn’t have a relationship with the Master) missed the message completely that only God has ever made man from dirt and water, and now this ‘man’ fixed the eves of a man with the very formal God used in the beginning to make his eyes whole, restored to the state God created them to function in.

The state of man’s sight before man fell in the garden and was blinded to a relationship with God by sin.

Then Jesus told him to wash all the dirt off of him, basically clean yourself and go home. Go home and live your new life of clarity that others will see you and inquire about the Lord and what He’s done in your life. The washing can be likened to the baptism for the remission of sin.

The religious people were so into their rituals that a miracle done on the ‘wrong’ day couldn’t possibly be a God thing.

They questioned and berated the man who was healed (healed meaning: sound meaning: he had clarity and could see Jesus for Lord.) because the religious thought that if they went at him enough they could bully him into recanting his story; but he stood firm on what he knew. He knew that Jesus heals, and that he was made whole that day.

They went after the people he knew to try to disprove that he was really changed.

The very people that should have stood firm beside him said “why you asking me? He’s grown ask him. He has a mouth, he can speak for himself.”

They were scared to tell it, all because they knew what happened to those who dared to stand up when everyone else was told to sit down. They stood with him until it was time to stand firm, then they took a step back and said “well we don’t really have anything to do with that”.

Sometimes you will have to stand tall by yourself.

But you don’t stand alone when you stand rooted and grounded in the Lord. The blind/restored man never saw Jesus’ face till he took a stand for Jesus and Jesus met him on the other side, away from the ‘haters’.

We don’t physically see the Lord as we go through our Christian walks but we know He’ll never leave us nor forsake us and when it’s all said and done we are going Home to be with Him.

The very folks that should have recognized the move of God missed it completely. They’re eyes were blind to the very salvation they claimed to have.

And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he. Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not. They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet. But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see? His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: but by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him. Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out. Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

John 9:1‭-‬41 KJV

Lord help us to see and hear from You and help us not to miss the move of God when it’s right in our faces.
