HIS GOOD WORKS

EVERLASTING LIFE, THE BIBLE: AN EPIC OF THE SPIRIT

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him (Acts 10:38).

In John 9, the disciples, walking alongside Jesus saw a man who had been born blind. They asked, “Master, who did sin, this man, his parents, that he was born blind?” As far as they were concerned, God in His justice system was punishing the blind man or his parents for their sin. What a mindset!

Read the Master’s response: “Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:3-4). Many read this and run off with the idea that the man’s blindness is one of the “works of God.” That’s erroneous!

The translators, on their own prerogative, put a punctuation—a full stop at the end of the 3rd verse—that should have never been there. The more accurate rendering is, “…that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me while it is day.”

Jesus was saying, “In this blind man, we see the work of Satan, but for the work of God to be manifest in him, I have to do something about it!” He then went ahead and healed the man. Hallelujah! The work of blindness didn’t come from God. Acts 10:38 tells us, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”

The oppression came from the devil, but the Father sent Jesus, anointed with Holy Ghost and with power, to heal and restore maimed limbs, give sight to the blind, mend the brokenhearted, deliver those who are oppressed of the devil, and even raise the dead. These are the works of God! Hallelujah!

PRAYER
Dear Father, thank you for your unmatched goodness, kindness, love and righteousness displayed in the world today. I declare that Satan’s hold over men’s lives is destroyed, as you work in and through your children to perfect your will in the earth and in the lives of men, for indeed, the earth is filled with your goodness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
