Open thou mine eyes.... Lord... meditation John chapter 9:24-34




1. Again they called the blind man and enquired of him telling him to give God the praise and they said that CHRIST was a sinner. ( V24)
2. The man answered them that he know not whether Christ is a sinner or not but he knows that his eyes were opened and he can see. (V25)
3. Again they asked him what Christ did to him and how he opened his eyes. (V26)
4. For this the man told them that he has told them before many times and then why they want to hear it Again? He asked them if they also want to become his disciples.
5. They said that he is a disciple of Christ but they are the disciples of Moses. V(28)
6. They said They know that God spoke to Moses but they do not know where Christ came from. (V29)
7. He replied to them why they are marvelling when Christ opened his eyes though no one knew where he is. (V30)
8. He said though God does not hear the sinners he will hear to the worshippers of God and the one that does his will. (V31)
9. Since the world began we have never heard of any man opening the eyes of the one born blind. (V32)
10. The man said if Christ is not of God he could not do anything.  (V33)
11. They answered to him that he is born of sin and is trying to teach then and cast him away. (V34)

 LIFE APPLICATION:

Today I am lead in my spirit to meditate on what happens when God opens our eyes. If our eyes are opened our lives are changed. Let us look into some scriptures for better understanding.

1. If our eyes are opened then we will able to comprehend who Christ is.

They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
John:9:17

2. If our eyes are opened we cannot stop testifying about Christ.

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.
John:9:11

3. If our eyes are opened we will become a disciple of Christ waiting to follow him.

Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
John:9:28

4. If our eyes are opened we can never say that CHRIST is a sinner and we will be able to glorify him as Lord.

Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
John:9:31

And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
John:9:38

5. If our eyes are opened we will be able to see the good in people.

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.
John:9:25

6. When our eyes are opened our eyes will see the well of water in the dry and thirsty land. Water here denotes the Spirit and the word of God.

And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
Genesis:21:19

7. When our eyes are opened we can see the blessings God has for us and not the curse that follows us.

He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:
Numbers:24:4

How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel!
Numbers:24:5

8. When God opens our eyes we can see the mighty angelic protection God has kept for us. ... that we will not feel alone anymore.

And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
2 Kings:6:17

9. When God opens our eyes we will be able to behold the wondrous things from the law.

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
Psalm:119:18

10. Sometimes God wants to touch our eyes the second time. Or else we will not be able to see a man as a human... but when our eyes are opened we are able to see people as they are ought to be seen.

And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
Mark:8:23

And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
Mark:8:24

After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
Mark:8:25.

Dear Child of God.... it is time for us to examine ourselves. Let us lay ourselves at the altar and  allow the spirit of God to purge our eyes a new.... Let the spirit of God minister unto our hearts furthermore. Amen.

Am I Blind? Meditation John chapter 9:1-10

Today's meditation John chapter 9: 1-10

 1. As Jesus passed by he saw a man who was blind from birth. (V1)
2. Disciples of Christ asked him whose sin was it that the man was blind, his or his parents? (V2)
3. Jesus told them that neither his sin or his parents, but he was blind that the works of God will  be manifested through him.(v3)
4. Jesus said he must work the works of the father when it is day as the  night is coming when no man can work. (V4)
5. Christ said as long as he is in the world, he is the light of the world. (V5)
6. After speaking these words Jesus spat on the ground, made a clay of the spittle and anointed the eyes of the man with the clay. (V6)
7.  He told him to go and wash in the pool of Siloam meaning sent. He went in obedience and washed and came back seeing. (V7)
8. The neighbours looking at him said if he the person who was blind and sitting and begging?(V8)
9. Some said that it is he And some said it is not. But the man said that it is he. (V9)
10. They all asked him then how his eyes were opened. (V10)

LIFE APPLICATION:

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.
John:9:7

ARE WE BLIND:

This is a good question to ask of ourselves today. AM I BLIND... of course not physically, but are we blind to the things of the Spirit? This is a good thought to ponder and examine ourselves.

1. For the blind everything is dark around them.

But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
1 John:2:11

If we hate our brother we are not walking in the light but in darkness And the darkness has blinded our eyes.

2. Our minds can be blinded by the God of the world that we cannot believe in Christ and his light cannot shine in us.

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2 Corinthians:4:4

3. When we sin against God, we do not know where we stumble in the noon day:

We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.
Isaiah:59:10

And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
Zephaniah:1:17

4. If we lack attributes like virtue, faith, knowledge, temperance, faithfulness and godliness, we can be short sighted.

But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
2 Peter:1:9

5. Taking bribe can blind our eyes:

Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.
1 Samuel:12:3

Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
Deuteronomy:16:19

What to do when we realise we are spiritually blinded?

Our God is a God who heals the blind. He leads them in paths they never know.

I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
Isaiah:42:6

To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
Isaiah:42:7

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isaiah:42:16

So God wants us to follow these steps Today.

1. Acknowledge that we are blinded spiritually and ask God for help, that we might see.

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Revelation:3:17

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Revelation:3:18

2. Allow God to work in those blind areas however painful and however dirty it is.

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.
John 9:6.

We see a creating power of God working here. The same hands that made Adam with the clay is now creating eyes with clay in the blind man.

The spit of Christ is divine. That is what when mingled with the dust of the ground has got the divine power to create. Let the same power to create work in our hearts too, that our spiritual eyes be opened too.

3. Go and wash yourselves in Siloam... meaning sent.

Here the waters of Siloam means the word of God.

Dear Child of God,
The WORD of the God has the power to cleanse. It has the power to heal and it has the power to open our eyes.

He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
Psalm:107:20

He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
Psalm:147:18

The WORD of GOD enlightens our eyes.

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psalm:19:8

So let us go to this Siloam which God has given us, even this word of God and wash ourselves, that our eyes can see with clarity.... May God reveal himself to us more. Amen.
