Satan is sly, clever and a twister of lies for he is a murderer and the father of lies. It sounds good to say Jesus was a good man. He was that but more importantly he was and is the very divine Son of God. Know that unbelievers believe the false assumptions that the evil enemy presents. One is what the disciples asked: is man blind because of his sin or his parent’s sin. But, Jesus corrects that assumption by saying it was so that “the acts of God may be revealed through what happens to him.” When healed Jesus removes the false assumptions and replaces them with truth so that the listeners may be without excuse.
The Neighbors: You can’t be who you say you are for I remember who you were and you are not the same person, so I deny that you are you. Remember Peter’s words: 1Pe 4:4 So they are astonished when you do not rush with them into the same flood of wickedness, and they vilify you.
The Parents: After questioning him the religious experts call for his parents who refuse to acknowledge the Healer out of fear of being removed from the synagogue. Again we remember Prov 29:25 “the fear of man is a snare.”
The Religious Leaders claim to follow Moses but fail to say they follow God when they claim that Jesus does not observe the Sabbath. Remember the words of Jesus: “The Sabbath was made for people, not people for the Sabbath.[Mk 2] “We know that God has spoken to Moses! We do not know where this man comes from!”
The Man testifies: “This is a remarkable thing, that you don’t know where he comes from, and yet he caused me to see! We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but if anyone is devout and does his will, God listens to him. Never before has anyone heard of someone causing a man born blind to see.”
Precious Friend, many may see the change in you but are either unwilling to accept it or to believe it. But, if you are like the blind man who has met the Divine Healer, continue to have a holy boldness like the blind man and fall and worship the Divine Son of God!
