We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don’t even know where he comes from.” The man answered, “Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. John 9:29-30
These men claimed to know God yet couldn’t even recognize his only begotten Son who was prophesied throughout the Old Testament. Why do people really reject Christ? Is it because they truly don’t believe or is it because they don’t want to change their lifestyle?
These men saw Jesus perform miracles right before their eyes and give glory to God, yet they still decided to reject him. Why? Because these men loved religion more than a relationship with God. They loved the power, money and authority they achieved. They believed they were already holy and didn’t need forgiveness, even though they plotted to murder Jesus. As Jesus said we need to Deny Ourselves, Carry our Cross, and Follow Him.
We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will. Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.” John 9:31-33
These men admitted right here that God would not allow these miracles to take place unless Jesus was doing the will of God. Yet they still rejected Christ, they were still so in love with themselves that they gave up their souls for the world.
Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said to him, Do you believe on the Son of God? John 9:35
After the Pharisees threw out the healed man, an amazing set of events happened. Jesus found the man and asked him do you believe he is the Son of God. The man acknowledged Jesus is the Son of God and Jesus allowed the man to worship him.
By Jesus allowing the man to worship him, hes showing us he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus is the Messiah promised throughout the Old Testament, every knee shall bow and tongue confess, Jesus Christ is Lord Amen
