Blindness

(John 9:1,3) “And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth... Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.”  In the above verses after the blind man was spotted, the apostles wanted to know if it was because of sin that he was born blind. Jesus very clearly went into the subject of blindness in the rest of the chapter. 1) Physical Blindness is not necessarily God’s judgment for sin. Sometimes people assume falsely that all physical imparities are due to our sins in this life. To that, Jesus stated in (v.3) that this blindness had nothing to do with him or his parents but rather God’s will. None of us in this life will ever truly know for certain why things happen the way they do, so be careful not to prejudge these things when they happen. 2) Spiritual Blindness on the other hand is the result of sin! Ever since the fall of Adam and Eve, a spiritual blindness has been upon the ears and hearts of man, that’s why he need Jesus to clearly see again.“ And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see;” 3) Physical and Spiritual blindness therefore can only be removed by Jesus Christ himself. The Blind man was healed of his physical imparity when he obeyed Jesus’ words, but he was also saved when he said to the Lord, (v.38)“I believe.” Trusting in Jesus and his Word is the only way to have blindness removed !

Faith That Removes Mountains

(Mark 11:23) "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." Over a hundred years ago, the great evangelist Dr. R. A. Torrey told the story of one little church in Maine that was dead spiritually. In fact, most of the churches in that town were pretty dead, but in this one particular church a few of its godly men decided to petition God for a miracle, and so they said, "here we are, uneducated laymen, but let us form a praying band, and center our prayers on the salvation of one man." So, they decided on one of the hardest men in town, a hopeless drunkard, and centered their prayers on him. To their amazement in just a week this man was converted. Seeing therefore the impossible become possible, they began to pray for another, and then another, u

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life !

(John 14:6) “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Ever since the time of Christ, many people have accepted the lie that there are many roads to heaven, when in the above verse Jesus says  very clearly that this is not true. Either Jesus was a liar, or he as God in the flesh was telling us the truth. 1) He is the Way . In John 1:1-4, Jesus told us that he was the Word of God in human form, and not only was he the Word of God, but also the Creator of the world and that in him was “life.” God came personally into the world that he created to show us that salvation can only come through his Son Jesus, and no other. Yes, there are many other ways in life to follow, but only Jesus came back from the dead to prove to mankind that he was and is God’s only Son, and the only way into heaven. 2) He is the Truth . Not only did Jesus say that he was the truth, but that his Word is absolutely true, also. In this world there are a

Giving God The Right Present At Christmas

(Matt. 2:11) “And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts;...” Christmas is all about the giving of gifts ; God gave the world Jesus (Jn.3:16), and here we see the wise men giving gifts as well. I think that in  many ways, gifts are the real reason that the world enjoys Christmas time, but to those of us that understand God’s purpose in sending His Son Jesus, we love this season for a different reason. The Biblical account doesn’t say how many wise men came from the east seeking Jesus, but it does tell us that they gave three different types of gifts; 1) Gold . In Jesus’ day gold was given to honor new kings, and to increase their wealth. Gold also represents the very best that God had to give to us but also the very best man should give to God. 2) Frankincense was the incense burned in the temple of Solomon. It represented praise, pra
