Hello friends! :D The following Bible Treasure deals with healing a blind man By The Power Of Jesus Christ
Please remember that Jesus Christ has complete dominion over everything in this universe, all it takes is for Him to give the Word, and Anything's done. 
God Has Given us all a Free Will, we are Free to choose
Love Cannot Be Forced, It Is Given and Accepted freely.
Our Lord Jesus Christ Came to earth To Save us from eternal death; to open our eyes, to help us Love one another and to help us See The Epic Magnitude Of God's Love.

John 9 

9 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 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,
7 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.
8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
11 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.
12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 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.
26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped Him.
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.


BIBLE TREASURE

In order for this blind man to be healed, it was required for him to be obedient to What our Lord Jesus Christ Had Commanded him to do, otherwise he would still be blind. 
The reason there's a lesson (The Holy Bible is FULL of Lessons :D) and a Bible Treasure for us here is because our Lord Jesus Christ could have healed the blind man instantly, without the blind man having to do anything. Instead he was asked to follow a simple Commandment while still being blind, "To wash in the pool of Siloam"

Hebrews 11:6

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.


It was the blind man's faith and obedience (Obedience Comes Through Faith) to The Lord Jesus Christ's Commandment that ultimately healed him.

How can we be sure we're not blind?

A blind man cannot see the road in which he walks, because he walks in darkness


Truth is universal, it is absolute, there is only One Real Truth (In everything) 
What is The Truth? What is The Road? 
Most of us can see the road in which we walk physically, but, Can you say with certainty that you can see the road in which you walk spiritually? 

We all know that something human beings have in common is our very limited time on earth. Our bodies are eventually going to die, therefore we know the end of the road in which we walk physically is death. 

But, where is the road in which we're walking spiritually leading us?
This question is of extreme importance, let's keep in mind that the end of our physical road is physical death, therefore our biggest concern isn't a physical road but a spiritual road (We know where one road ends with certainty)

We are constantly making choices, right or wrong (On a daily basis) 
These choices change our spiritual path constantly, leading us towards Good or towards evil. We all have a Free Will and we constantly exercise it in our choice making.
Humans are the only physical creatures on the planet that possess the knowledge of good and evil. We are the only ones capable of making "Moral Choices"


The Holy Bible Tells us we know good and evil, because we ate the forbidden fruit (Breaking God's Commandment) This is the reason we are in the middle of a spiritual battle between right and wrong, good and evil.

John 8:12

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Our Lord Jesus Christ Gives us Spiritual understanding, so that we may know where we came from, where we are, what we are doing here, and where we're going
Jesus Christ Opens our eyes.
Only Jesus Christ Is Able to do this.

Our daily choices shape our spiritual being constantly. 
We make the right choice and we're walking towards the light (Good deeds) we make the wrong choice and we're walking towards the darkness (Bad deeds
 We must all make a personal choice between good and evil.

 Let's take a moment to reflect on our heart and the emotions or behaviors that proceed out of it.

Do we often feel...

Anger? Greed? Jealousy? Envy? Vanity? Hatred? Arrogance? Lust towards someone other than our spouse?


Do we often tell or say...

Lies? Dirty Jokes? Bad Words? 


  Do we often start...
  
Arguments? Fights? Strife? Quarrels? 


The above are a few actions that start from the heart, may come out of the mouth, and may be carried out with our bodies. If you are struggling with any of those actions, ask God For Wisdom And Help In Jesus Christ's Name, and He Will Give you The Victory.
 Our Lord Jesus Christ Says:

John 8:34

34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

There was a time when i had "The mouth of a sailor" 
I would use mostly filthy language, i would tell dirty jokes
I didn't think much of this at the time, and i would have indeed kept defiling my life (Hurting myself) if i wouldn't have Accepted Jesus Christ Into my life. 
We truly don't realize we have been enslaved until we are set free; i say this from experience. 
Dirty Speech wasn't the only problem i had before i allowed Jesus Into my life.  
I had many problems which i considered normal at the time; cigarette addiction, pride, arrogance, vanity, constant lust and many more. These behaviors truly made a slave out of me back then.
Without Jesus Christ's Help, i would have never overcome them.
  

I would like to invite you to analyze yourself and reflect on your actions, ask yourself if you have experienced any type of sin, like envy, hatred, lying, vanity, arrogance, greed, etc. And ask yourself, "How often do i experience this?" "How do i feel as i experience this or afterwards?" and you may come to see just how accurate Jesus Christ's Words Are. 

Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


 

Truly he who sins is a servant of sin.
If you have come to realize how sin has been affecting your life, robbing you of the joy you could be experiencing, don't worry. 
Remember every human being on this planet has sinned, so don't feel discouraged

Romans 3:23

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Try your personal best to overcome these behaviors and you will notice a Great difference in your life, Experience Freedom! ^____^ 
Remember to Rely On Jesus Christ, and He Will Give you The Victory :) 
The Following Scripture is also very important to think about:  

Matthew 15: 18-19

18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
 

 If our bodies were a "Bank Account" our words would be "Money
Every time we use the Gift of speech we are not only using The Very Breath Of Life within us, we are also performing a "Transaction" 
These constant "Transactions" have very real consequences both in the people receiving our words (Messages) and also in our personal lives.


Either we are using words of Truth, Love, Life (To Edify One Another, To Love One Another) or we are using words of Deceit, Hate, Death (To Affect Others Negatively, No Love)
It's important to analyze, and choose our words carefully, because they affect others; and additionally, they also shape our souls. Either for Good or Bad.

 
Proverbs 21:23

23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
   
How can we make sure that we're making the right choices, that we're walking in the light? 

John 8:12-30

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
 

Although It is possible to momentarily walk straight (Making right choices) without really seeing the road, the chances of slipping (Making wrong choices) are much bigger and eventually 100% Guaranteed
However, if we see the road clearly, and constantly walk on it, we are less likely to slip and make a wrong choice, because we will be on track :D 
In order for us to make sure we're walking in the light, we must first be able to see the road, otherwise how can we really know where we're walking?

John 14:6

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus Christ Is The Way (The Only Road) The Truth, The Life.
He Is The Road To The Father; Therefore if we walk on This Road, We know with certainty where we're going. We are no longer walking in darkness, for we see The Road clearly :D

How do we make sure we are Really walking on The Right Road?

We are Walking In The Light By being obedient To our Lord Jesus Christ :D (Walking As He Walked)

John 14:21

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

We must do everything He Says in order to have our eyes opened and truly see.
I invite you to read, "Can We Trust The Lord?"

1 John 2:4-6

4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.



Jesus Christ Kept God's Moral Law (The 10 Commandments) and wants us to walk the Way He Did, In Obedience To God, Keeping His Commandments.

I invite you to read, "Should Christians Keep God's Commandments?"

God's Commandments Can be summed up in One Word: LOVE.

If we choose to not be obedient to The Son Of God, Jesus Christ, Who Gave His Entire Life For Us, then we are making the choice to follow ourselves, and we all know we were made from dust and eventually dust we'll become. 
If we follow ourselves and our evil tendencies, then we'll be walking in darkness just like the blind man who washed in the Pool Of Siloam once was, and eventually we would die eternally.

On the other hand, If we choose to be Obedient To God we'll receive Free Blessings From Him, Including The Greatest Blessing Given To us Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood; Eternal Life.  
I can tell you from personal experience that following Jesus Christ results in Blessing after Blessing, Miracles, Understanding, Peace, Love, Great Things. 
It's important to remember that following Jesus Christ does not mean we won't be tempted by the devil, on the contrary, the devil attempts to lead us away from Jesus Christ, because the devil hates us. 
Remember we all have a free choice, and it is during temptation that we must choose to Rely On Jesus Christ 100%, Pray, Read The Bible, Ask God For Help in any area in which we are being attacked by the enemy (the devil)


By following Jesus Christ we Receive Sight (Understanding) we'll be walking In The Light just like the blind man was after being Obedient To God's Commandment.  
Jesus Christ  Promises To Give us The Holy Spirit if we choose to be Obedient To God's Commandments. 
God's Holy Spirit of Truth, Peace, Wisdom, Guidance, Justice, Understanding, Love, All That Is Good Can Be Inside us if we choose to Allow Jesus Christ to come into our hearts :D

The Choice Is Ours. Let's Make The Right Choice!
 
John 14:15-18

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Baptism is also Commanded By God, and those who Keep This Commandment Also Receive God's Holy Spirit. 
I invite you to read, "Born Of Water (Baptism)"
Baptism is a sign of Repentance of Past Sins, New Birth, Faith and A Commitment To Walk As Jesus Christ Walked, In Obedience To God The Father; Keeping God's Commandments! :D

Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Our Lord Jesus Christ  Also gave us a New Commandment,, 
 To Love one another as He Hath Loved us


1 John 1:5-10

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

I must also mention that the blind man (Mentioned in John 9) still had to walk in darkness towards the pool. Interestingly, This is Blind faith. 
The blind man made the effort to get to the pool, he had Faith in The Lord Jesus Christ; Keeping The Lord Jesus Christ's Commandment and he saw!
 What A Great Gift! :D

If you are walking in darkness today, i invite you to walk towards Jesus Christ
Remember the blind man's reward! :D


1 John 2

2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
11 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.
12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.
13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

We are Commanded to follow our Lord Jesus Christ's Commandments, and if we do we are very fortunate indeed; being obedient to God pays off! :D 
Not only will we be able to see clearly when keeping God's Commandments, we also have assurance that our souls will Live Eternally With God in Paradise and Additionally our Lord Jesus Christ Says we can ask anything according To His Will, and He Will Hear us and Give us that which we asked for! (As Long As It's His Will. Remember He Will Not Give us anything that might hurt us) :D

1 John 5 

5 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.


Remember friends, The 10 Commandments are meant to keep us free from sin's deadly venom, for every single time one of The Commandments (The Law) is broken, there is a consequence.

Adam and Eve found this out a long time ago, and we are all still dealing with the result of their disobedience thousands of years later; sin's reward is death. 


Adam and Eve's disobedience was destined to happen in order for us to exist and learn to obey The Lord, so that we can re-populate God's Kingdom. 
God's Word Says one third of God's Angels fell with the devil. We cannot know with certainty just how many fallen angels there are here on earth, but we know God's Kingdom is much much much much much much much bigger than our planet, and therefore there must be quite a gigantic army of fallen angels down here.
Those angels fell from God's Kingdom because they were not obedient to God. 

 
We rise to God's Kingdom if we are obedient To Him, taking the places that were left empty by the angels that fell
We can only do this through our Lord Jesus Christ's Precious Blood; The Free Gift Of Everlasting Life.

The 10 Commandments were given to us with a deep Love for us, along with The 11th Commandment, given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 13:34

34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.


Some people think that keeping God's Moral Law (The 10 Commandments) is an enslavement. However, God's Perfect Moral Law does not enslave, sin does
Just like human laws keep us from going to jail and becoming captive, God's Laws keep us from committing sin and becoming captive, Spiritually and Physically.

John 8:31-36

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.


Both human laws and God's Law keep us free from becoming captive. It is the transgression of The Law that sends us to jail, to keep us captive.

1 John 3:4

4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

We can see how The Law does not enslave any human being, on the contrary, The Law is there for our own good and protection. 
God's Moral Law (The 10 Commandments) Is The Best Law there is, the result of keeping It isn't just our Spiritual and Physical Freedom, but also an abundance of Blessings, Protection and Love From God
Who wouldn't want Free Blessings? 

Matthew 5:17-20

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.


 Jesus Christ Says that He Did Not Come to destroy The Commandments, But To Obey Them
Some people have said that the Word Jesus Christ Used, "Fulfil" means to "Finish" but this isn't the correct meaning of this word according To God's Word.
Let's see another Bible Verse which uses the same word in order to find its true meaning :D


Galatians 5:14-18

14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

  We can conclude that the word, "Fulfil" means to "Obey"
Jesus Christ Is The Only Way To The Father, He Came To Show us The Path, that we may also walk like He did, In Obedience To God, Keeping The Commandments :D


Matthew 22:36-40

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


 
Did you know

God's 10 Commandments that we find on Exodus 20 are divided in 2 parts.
The first 4 Commandments are Kept if we Truly Love God.
The last 6 Commandments are Kept if we Truly Love our neighbor as we Love ourselves.
This is why our Lord Jesus Christ Said, "On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets"

Jesus Says Loving God with all of our hearts, with all of our souls, and with all of our minds is the first and most important Commandment in The 10 Commandments
 This includes the first 4 Commandments:  

1.“I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
2.You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
3.You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
4.Remember the Sabbath day (Saturday) to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the LORD your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.
 *These Commandments will be kept if you love God*

Jesus Says Loving thy neighbor as thyself is the second most important Commandment which includes the last 6 Commandments:
  
5.Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
6.You shall not murder.
7.You shall not commit adultery.
8.You shall not steal.
9.You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10.You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor’s house, his field, his male servant, his female servant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.
 *These Commandments will be kept if you love your neighbor as yourself*


I am now going to share a short and interesting article with you (Credit given at the bottom :D)

Sight For Blind Eyes

healing_of_the_blind_man

One of the more unknown details of the Bible is the fact that no one other than Jesus ever heals blindness.  Neither Old Testament prophets nor the apostles in the New Testament do so.  Sick people are made well, lame people walk, dead people are even raised  from the dead, but no one ever makes a blind man see. 
Surely this is not coincidence.  Indeed I believe it is not.  To see was, and continues to be,  figuratively associated with spiritual sight and understanding.  This particular miracle is left for Jesus alone, giving special emphasis to the sight-giving purpose of God.  It also reserved a miraculous work uniquely for Jesus Himself.  If anything would be Jesus’ alone, this was to be the one.
The gospel of Mark displays for us how the healing of a blind man was a powerful sign pointing to the spiritual sight-giving power of God alone.  In Mark 8:22-26 some men bring a blind man from the community to Jesus.  Jesus proceeds to spit on the man’s eyes (I’ll leave that one alone!) and after a final touch, the man’s eyes have been healed and his sight restored.  Another magnificent display of power and mercy.
But the story is placed where it is for a reason.  The following story is the famous confession of Peter acknowledging Jesus As The Christ, the Messiah sent from God to save mankind.  This passage ends the first half of the gospel of Mark.  Mark 8:31 begins a new thought section.  So the location of these passages at the end of the first major section of the gospel is important.  Everything in these first 8 chapters has brought the readers to this critical moment.
Mark gives the record of Jesus’ miraculous healing of the blind man as a sign of the touch of Jesus for the gaining of spiritual sight.  Throughout the first eight chapters of the gospel, Mark refers to the blindness of various individuals or groups (Pharisees, disciples, the world in general).  Despite Jesus’ authoritative teaching and miracles, they simply don’t get it.  And here at the end of the section, Jesus grants a man sight, precisely placed before Peter confesses Jesus as the Messiah.  The point:  Spiritual sight comes only when Jesus takes the blindness away and allows us to see.  Matthew confirms this in his account of Peter’s confession in Matthew 16.  There, after Peter confesses Christ as the Messiah, Jesus says to him that flesh and blood has not revealed this to him, but God’s spirit.  The truth Peter understood was not discerned in the flesh, but on the basis of the Spirit’s revelation of this truth.  And just like the physical miracle, spiritual sight is a display of power and grace on behalf of our Lord.  And just as the first thing this blind man sees is Jesus Himself, so the spiritually blind man comes face to face with the crucified Savior as well.
We see because Jesus has given us sight.  We understand who He is and the glories of His work on the cross on our behalf only because He has revealed it to us.  We are wondering, blind, desperate, and needy.  Displaying both His power and His mercy and grace, Jesus comes to us as He comes to this one that has to be escorted to Him by others (he can’t even get there on his own) and touches our eyes so that we can see.  Only then do things become clear. 
Let us praise the One who graciously gives us eyes to see, Jesus Christ.  Like the blind man at Bethsaida, so we were.  His touch has made us see, and what a magnificent and glorious sight He is.


Friends, all we must do in this world is be obedient to our Lord Jesus Christ. He has died for all of us so that we can be saved and enter God's Kingdom. 
The magnitude of this sacrifice is unimaginable. No human being on earth could ever physically, spiritually and mentally endure what our Lord Jesus Christ endured. 
 Jesus Christ Committed no sin, He Was and Is Flawless, yet He died in the most wretched fashion taking the world's sins on His shoulders (A human dies from his or her own sins, imagine what it would be like to bear The world's sins, how much pain and agony would that equal? This is physically, spiritually and mentally unimaginable) so that you and i can live with Him eternally. 


Will you accept the Free Cup of The Water of Everlasting Life our Lord Jesus Christ Has Handed you Through His Precious Blood?

John 12:44-50

44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

 
I will now leave you with the following Bible Chapter to ponder :D

Jesus Changes Water Into Wine
John 2:1-10 (NIV)

2 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 
2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 
3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”
4 “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.
6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”
They did so, 
9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 
10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

When the guests had ran out of wine, the servants were told to Do whatever Jesus Tells them to do (Whatever He Commands) The servants did exactly this, and as a result they enjoyed The Best Wine any human has ever tasted. Wine made By Royalty, and not the human type of royalty, But Wine Made By The Son Of God Himself. Undoubtedly the best wine ever made as a result of obeying our Lord Jesus Christ'Commandments :D

Matthew 19:16-17

16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
