Hi
Moving on

    Therefore his parents said, ?He is of age; ask him.? So for the second time they called the man who had been blind and said to him, ?Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.? He answered, ?Whether he is a sinner I do not know. One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.? They said to him, ?What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?? He answered them, ?I have told you already, and you would not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become his disciples??
John 9:23-‬27 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.9.23-27.ESV     


Here the Jews recall the man born blind and go through the same things again they just would not believe that Jesus was the son of God and he had cured a man born blind even though the man stood before them seeing something only God could do.
The man then tells then there is no point in telling them again because they just would not believe that Jesus had cured him.
Its a bit like many today they just will not believe that Jesus is the son of God and he did miracles here on earth of which there are eye witnesses we must believe what the word of God says even if we do not understand it it is the truth.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

     And they reviled him, saying, ?You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where he comes from.?
John 9:28-‬29 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.9.28-29.ESV         


Here the Jews say they are followers of Moses but what they are forgetting that Moses wrote about Jesus but they refused to believe him

     For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.
John 5:46 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.46.ESV     


So we need to take notice of what Moses has to say so we do not make the same mistakes the Jews made.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     The man answered, ?Why, this is an amazing thing! You do not know where he comes from, and yet he opened my eyes. We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him. Never since the world began has it been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.? They answered him, ?You were born in utter sin, and would you teach us?? And they cast him out.
John 9:30-‬34 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.9.30-34.ESV     


Here the man gives an excellent reason to the Jews that Jesus had come from God no one could do the miracles Jesus did unless he came from God.
And still the Jew would not believe even to day they will not believe that Jesus is the son of God who was sent into the world to save sinners Israel first but they rejected the offer so it went to the Gentiles but Israel will be saved.

       Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written, ?The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob?; ?and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.?
Romans 11:25-‬27 ESV

Hi

   Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and having found him he said, ?Do you believe in the Son of Man?? He answered, ?And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?? Jesus said to him, ?You have seen him, and it is he who is speaking to you.? He said, ?Lord, I believe,? and he worshiped him. Jesus said, ?For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.?
John 9:35-‬39 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.9.35-39.ESV         


Here our Lord finds the man born blind and makes it plain to him who he is and the man believed
Then our Lord goes on to tell him why he came into the world that those who do not see the Gentiles  will see and those who see Israel will be blinded.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

  Some of the Pharisees near him heard these things, and said to him, ?Are we also blind?? Jesus said to them, ?If you were blind, you would have no guilt; but now that you say, ?We see,? your guilt remains.
John 9:40-‬41 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.9.40-41.ESV     


These words of our Lord are very interesting Israel were the only ones who had been given the law to see the difference between good and evil so when they said we see they show they had chosen the wrong path and not the path of love.
Its also interesting to note that all those at that time who were outside of Israel and had not received the law where blind and as such could not be found guilty of braking the law.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     ?Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.? This figure of speech Jesus used with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them.
John 10:1-‬6 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.10.1-6.ESV     


Our Lord is the good shepherd and all those who believe in him are the sheep and the sheep follow him.
So let us follow our shepherd and listen to his voice to every word he has said and follow the path he has laid out for us looking neither to the right or the left but straight ahead.
So let us follow the word of God as we have it the bible and be careful to check everything men say against the word of God.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

     So Jesus again said to them, ?Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.
John 10:7-‬9 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.10.7-9.ESV   


So Jesus Christ is the door the only way into the kingdom of God there is no other way its only through Christ we can enter the kingdom and in so doing inherit eternal life.
So let us have faith in Jesus Christ and receive the grace of our heavenly Father and enter into his glorious kingdom through the only door Jesus Christ.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

    The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
John 10:10-‬11 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.10.10-11.ESV       


Who is the thief is it the devil by killing stealing and destroying he turns people away from God and loving one another but our Lord came into the world to show us what love is he was willing to lay down his life for us sinners so let us take advantage of this wonderful gift and turn our backs on satan and follow our Lord and enter into his Kingdom through him who is the door.

Love and Peace
Dave
