Are You Blind To The Works of
Coming live from turtle30cshell I am your host
Christina Farris. Are you blind ot the works of God.
Often time we see many things around us taking
place in our world including miracles. Yet do we
recognize them as miracles of God or do we see them
as mere coincidences? Nobody but you can answer
this. Every praying church across America has
perhaps seen miracles, yet perhaps not so many have
them recorded down and the results of why these
miracles took place. Some miracles are to
demonstrate the works of God, and other so a person
can testify of the works of God. Today we are going
to read the story of the man born blind. It was neither
his sin, or his parents sin but to see the works of God
demonstrated. Let’s us begin.
John 9:1-41 KJV
(1) And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which
was blind from his birth.
(2) And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who
did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born
(3) Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned,
nor his parents: but that the works of God should be
made manifest in him.
(4) I must work the works of him that sent me, while
it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
(5) As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the
(6) 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,
(7) 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.
(8) The neighbours therefore, and they which before
had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he
that sat and begged?
(9) Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him:
but he said, I am he.
(10) Therefore said they unto him, How were thine
(11) 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.
(12) Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I
(13) They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime
(14) And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made
the clay, and opened his eyes.
(15) 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.
(16) 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.
(17) They say unto the blind man again, What sayest
thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said,
He is a prophet.
(18) 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
(19) And they asked them, saying, Is this your son,
who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now
(20) His parents answered them and said, We know
that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
(21) 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.
(22) 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.
(23) Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
(24) 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.
(25) 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.
(26) Then said they to him again, What did he to
thee? how opened he thine eyes?
(27) 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?
(28) Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his
disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
(29) We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this
fellow, we know not from whence he is.
(30) 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.
(31) Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but
if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will,
him he heareth.
(32) Since the world began was it not heard that any
man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
(33) If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
(34) They answered and said unto him, Thou wast
altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And
they cast him out.
(35) 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?
(36) He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I
might believe on him?
(37) And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen
him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
(38) And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped
(39) 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.
(40) And some of the Pharisees which were with him
heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind
(41) Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should
have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your
How often a healing is seen without knowledge of
why now. Yet some are more curious to say is this
really this person. Was this the man born blind? That
was question even by neighbors. And when the
parents are asked they were afraid and said he of age
ask him. Even so this did not satisfy some leaders.
How so often there is doubt of a person’s healing.
Some never asking the right questions. The man told
the people that he was made whole when a man
name Jesus anointed his eyes and washed in the pool
of Siloam. He only knew when he went and washed
in the pool of water called Siloam that his eyes were
made whole. He was anointed and he went obeying
the words of Christ to wash his eyes.
Those that scoffed because the man born blind was
healed was blinder the one born blind. For now the
one born blind was not just healed physically but was
healed spiritually that day. Jesus went and found the
man he healed and ask him do you believe in the Son
of God. The man said no, who is he so I might
believe. Jesus told him clearly I am he. The man
Those that did not believe and knew the man was
born blind was blind indeed, but they would not be
allowed to see once they saw the wonderful works of
God. The denial of the power of God would cause
their blindness to remain. Spiritual blindness of who
Jesus was because they did not believe the sign and
wonder of the man born blind being healed. Yet the
one healed gain the knowledge of eternal life by
believing in the Son of God. Do you believe in Jesus
the only Son of God or do you deny Him? Only you
can decide for yourself what you believe about God.
Only you can decide what you believe concerning the
Son of God. Jesus is the salvation plan of God. Why
because Jesus came to draw all men to Himself. The
healing was the eye opener for the man, but the
tender loving Jesus who came and ask Him do you
know who I am, was the compassion the man needed
when those around him could not believe he could
Was Moses a Devil? Jews said they follow Moses.
Moses like all prophets and teachers make mistakes.
What made him a devil would be the simple fact that
people would follow Moses because of the miracles
and not God. The people were afraid to talk to God
one on one. Jesus is our go between to God. He is
more then a prophet, He is the Son of God, the
Messiah the one foretold about by the prophet Moses
as well as others. Man’s ways are not always of God
no matter how good and dedicated we are to God.
We all make choices who we worship. There
warnings of devils coming that would do miracles,
who are these devils but ministers not being God, but
with the love of God, yet people would put them on
pedal stools in a form of deadly worship. If one never
looks to God but to the minister, then one is blind.
As we continue in John in the weeks ahead it is up to
you decide who Jesus is to you. It is clear who He is
to some already, but to others they struggle with
blindness. I may decide to record The Prophesy
Revealed In Matthew Bible Study. I believe this study
is one that benefit’s the viewer and enables him or
her to weight the difference in Old and New
Testament with prophesy. However until I do one can

Let us pray Dear Heavenly Father open our eyes so
we might see the wonderful works of miracles in our
daily life. May those miracles help our belief and not
hender us from knowing you. In Jesus precious
