< Back to John Chapter 9

    I love the book of John and read one chapter a week for 21 weeds at least once every 8 months so that God can open up my understanding. Like the blind man in chapter 9, I also believe and will worship him
  • Ellie
    I think John 9 is a very important passage about the difference between Satan's prison of darkness and Christ's freedom of light!

    Thank you Jesus that once I was blind but now I see. Living in the world I thought I was having a good time until I truly accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and I realized how wrong I had been. I will spend the rest of my life loving and thanking him for his forgiveness and salvation. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Amen
  • Lilian
    I was blind before now i can see. I was blind to know and hear God's words before but now I am born again. Help me Jesus to be born again every moment of my life. You alone the Light of the world my Redeemer my Savior Shalom I will praise you Lord Jesus until my last breath and I will rejoice for you are my life and my salvation my Jehovah my Healer amen

    Men of God know not mystery’s God holds. We have non believers, even atheists in our families and friends. Some we think barred from Heaven will not be and visa versa. Our pain may be great with these lost, so close to us.
    We, living like Christ helps bring some to belief, even after we go to Heaven. God’s power works in us/ thru us. Atheists being open are closer to God than they realize! Amen.

    Jesus actions spoke for themselves. When he was falsely accused he let his actions speak for themselves so people could reach the right conclusion about him. We can imitate him.

    I love to read john, he was very close to jesus and how wonderful for that man to see for the first time. so many people can see and still be blind. stubborn or foolish or both.

    Born again with the fire of Gods Spirit and Word. Now, Jesus teaches daily, his Word my parchment of life and wisdom. Dumbfounded I go healed, saved in his grace, wanting to tell all. Few may hear or see quickly, for it took decades searching and wallowing in the mire for me to find. My eyes now see, and soul more, to live with Jesus. Thank you Jesus and God, bringing this fire for those who see.

    "..Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?" How many strange ideas people will follow instead of acknowledging the truth as it is written in the Scriptures! As Christians we may have it hard to think in terms of luck; but we are in a hostile and ruined world filled with many hazards and adversaries; and its not always to be judged as one being better or worse than.
  • A disciple
    "And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?" While many think that these are hard things to understand, how evil happens especially hard to some, yet it shows a great ignorance of the ruined state of the world and a gross underestimating of one's own sins. But the reason we all are born, even in this condition, is that we be saved!
  • A disciple
    Hello Peter; It is interesting, and something to wonder about, that men are able to be indifferent to and deflect the spiritual and the truth working right in their midst! "...for flesh and blood has not not revealed it to you, but my Father in heaven." So the LORD is righteous who takes vengeance on the wickedness of men, because He KNOWS what we really are inwardly, and all have a conscience!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Very interesting encounter with the blind man and the members of his community. In spite of all the miracles, many could not still see that Jesus is incarnate God. This is another prophecy fulfilled that His people will know Him not (Jeremiah 3: 20). Also see John 1: 11: He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

    April- The very definition of God's grace is UNmerited favor... No matter how broken and sorry one could be, only believing Christ took one's place (God seeing Christ's past instead of one's own; Christ's righteousness instead of one's own works) brings salvation! Praise God :) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift [no work can add] of God:"Eph
  • April
    I think of Amazing grace when I read this chapter, and it makes me wonder,if we say now we see, could we actually be blind?, for it takes every day commitment and understanding, to be sinless,I really dont know of one person in exsistence that is PERFECT, so Thank YESHUA for having grace and patience,I try and ask to help me be humble,and thank him for all I have in my life,I'm nothing without him

    Dave: The blind man went to the pool to wash he was blind he didn't see Jesus. Read verse 6-7
  • Irene123
    David - not everyone learns at the same speed. God knows this for He created us. Jesus sought this man out because He knew this of him and also KNEW he would - believe - given just one more sentence of teaching.
  • Irene123
    V.7 is a prophesy of Acts2:38. When we are washed in the pool (baptistery, by immersion, (using the NAME of Jesus) and receive the Holy Ghost, the Spirit (Holy Ghost) then opens our eyes to the truth of His Word.
  • A disciple
    David; I think what is more interesting, is how there always seems to be some little rats sneaking around, that have to run and tell the Pharisees what Jesus is doing. This man that was healed is like so many we see today, who are smart and honest and thoughtful; and for no known reason, are brought to have to prove it to grouchy hateful and hostile hypocrites! Whatever he says they don't believe.
  • David
    I am challenged by the once born-blind man testified about Jesus Christ before the Pharisees in verse 27. However, I am also surprised to see him not yet recognizing the Person of Jesus in verse 36 whom he had testified of. That suggest to me that despite Christ's amazing works in our lives, we sometimes still deny knowing him.

    To Melissa Baugh - The story of blind Bartemaeus is in Mk.10:52. This blind man's name in Jn.9 isn't mentioned. The reason more isn't said of 'Bart' is - the Bible is GOD's word, not man's, and God reveals what He wants to.
  • Arsenio glover
    I enjoyed it , seeing how my Lord Jesus Christ and worked miracles Glory to The Lord Jesus Christ hallelujah ! If more people gave Thier life fully to Christ people will much better off. Acts 2:38 ( baptized in Jesus name for the remission of sins and receive the gift of the holy ghost ). Thank you Lord Jesus for saving me.
  • Melissa Baugh
    Why isn't there more about bartemus testimony
  • MSB
    This is a true evidence of today's society. We are healed or we've been blessed through God and his powers. Yet, we are ashamed to admit to others who may not believe in God. If God does a miracle in our lives, let it be known. It says in the scriptures...If you disown Jesus/God on earth...Then he shall disown you in heaven. The blind man was healed and he let everyone whom asked of him. Amen
  • BSP
    The blind man that was healed by Jesus was stating the truth that he had experienced. He was not concerned about pleasing the people around him or about their opinions so much that he was willing to compromise the truth. We do well to follow his example.
  • Sheelah
    He didn't know Jesus too much but the impact was undeniable.
  • Irene123
    To Matt. - in saying everyone's memory has been stripped away - are you referring to vs. 1-2 ..... ?
  • Roxsana Lee
    Daily Scripture during the Church Fast! Be Blessed Love You,
  • Barbara Moore
    Jesus is the light of the world.
  • Martha
    when you have been touched by the Lord, you going to tell somebody because you going to feel like shouting it from the roof top. I know a man and his name is Jesus and he has set me free. Bless the name of the Lord for He is good.
