John 9:39-41 – Seeing But Still Blind

Dear Friends,

This week we finish looking at the account of the man who was blind from birth — until he met Jesus. Jesus has some closing remarks for the Pharisees. Although they professed themselves to be wise, they (along with the Saducees) made horrible decisions that led to the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. Because they were blind (Matt 23:16, 17, 19, 24, 26). 

Give us understanding as we read your word Lord, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

John 9:39-41
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.

This seems to contradict what Jesus said previously about judgment (John 3:17; 8:15, 16), but upon closer examination, it does not. Judgment was not the reason Jesus came, but a result of his coming. Jesus gave sight to the blind but his presence exposed the blindness of the Pharisees.

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.
John 9:39-41


Before we look at how this week’s text applies to us, let us consider our letter from Jesus. Did you know that Jesus wrote you a letter? The letters to the seven churches in the Book of Revelation were not only letters to seven literal churches in Asia Minor, but letters to the church throughout the seven ages of church history. We are currently in the last of these seven ages; therefore, the letter to the church in Laodicea is written directly to us. Jesus said that the church in our generation is blind (Rev 3:17) and this is his counsel to us:

…..I counsel thee to buy of me gold [the word; Ps 19:10 et al] tried in the fire [Ps 12:6; cf 1 Pet 4:12], that thou mayest be rich [cf Ps 119:14]; and white raiment [Rev 19:8; cf Ps 103:12], that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve [the word; the word is read with the eyes], that thou mayest see.
Revelation 3:18

Lord, there is a strong delusion that is blinding eyes in these last days. Give us eyes to see and ears to hear, that we may understand what is happening. Give us the wisdom to respond accordingly, and follow You wherever You choose to lead us, in Jesus’ name. Amen.


The Bible says the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not and furthermore that he is a king over all the children of pride. Foolish pride is of the devil, and it blinds people to their need for Jesus Christ. Pride is also at the top of God’s hate list in Proverbs 6. While the blind beggar had no problem humbling himself and receiving Jesus, the Pharisees refused to acknowledge that the Carpenter from Nazareth was even their equal, much less their Superior.

The parallels between the Pharisees in our text and current leadership in our day are painfully obvious. Whether we look at elected (and unelected) officials or whether we look at business leaders, the new de facto government, what we see in most cases are blind guides. Like the Pharisees, most of the leaders today reject Jesus Christ. Isaiah prophesied that the leaders in Jerusalem would make a covenant with death. Today in 2021, this prophecy is as true as it ever was. Jerusalem is leading the way for ‘vaccine’ passports, which will eventually lead to a worldwide medical ID, which will eventually lead to the mark of the beast. 

When you read the Revelation, one of the things that always seems inconceivable is how so many people willingly worship the beast and curse God, even after grievous sores break out on those who take the mark (Rev 16:2). I believe we are seeing this phenomenon begin to take shape as people are getting boils (grievous sores) and even dying after taking the shots, yet many still cling to their trust in ‘the science’. In the Revelation, John writes that the rider the pale horse will kill 1/4 of the people on earth. Later, the sixth trumpet judgment kills 1/3 of the people on earth. In total, that equals 1/2 of earth’s population. I believe the mRNA shots are a major part of what ultimately leads to the death of 1/2 of the world’s population. Other factors will include the sword, hunger, the beasts of the earth, and war (red horse). Experts say that over the next few years, autoimmune responses to the shots are going to start taking effect on a large scale, bringing pestilence the likes of which the world has not seen since the Black Death. 

But if the shots are really that bad, how can our ‘leaders’ be so blind as to go along with it?

As the Scriptures I cited above (2 Cor 4:4; cf Job 41:34) indicate, it is the god of this world who is behind the highly politicized COVID agenda. This explains why the agitators on the left hate Christians so much. (Eg, Antifa attacked a group of peaceful Christians in Portland this week.) But how does he do it? How is Satan able to deceive so many people? That is a big question but let’s look at just a few key points.

First of all, let’s look at the once-richest person in the world (fourth richest at present), long-time Jeffery Epstein friend and confidant and depopulation architect, Bill Gates. Bill Gates has effectively bought the media, the WHO, the NIH, the CDC, and every other major global health organization as well. (See here, for example.) The kind of money Gates has and the kompromat that Epstein was able to provide are among the biggest pieces to this puzzle, but we wrestle not against flesh and blood. It is Satan who is behind the COVID agenda. (Keep that in mind, and pray accordingly.) Nevertheless, after Microsoft was found in violation of US antitrust laws in 1999, Bill Gates launched a massive public relations campaign to rehabilitate his image in the eyes of the public. It worked. Despite the facts linked above, many still wholeheartedly accept the carefully curated TV image of Gates as he presents himself as the world’s savior while rocking his pastel-colored sweaters. Although there may be many ‘leaders’ who are not necessarily compromised, they all watch the same bought-and-paid-for media as everyone else. The power of the media to mold public opinion is truly staggering. The Bible says evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. So what else would one expect — they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them? 

Of course, Gates is just one of many different players working together in concert to bring in the new world order. Flip-flop king Fauci is another.

Second of all, the few good ones who are not under the mind control and are willing to buck the system are vastly outnumbered. Many top-level scientists have opposed the COVID agenda but the full-spectrum control of the media has kept them from being heard. Most Americans use the iPhone ‘Messages’ app, which most carriers block from sharing of videos. The rest of the world typically uses WhatsApp or something similar and sharing banned videos is common. That is why there are very few protests in America. However, the countries that protest meet stronger pushback from the new world order. In France, the old Nazi trope ‘show me your papers’ is now being used on the public. (According to Liberty Counsel Action, even in the US there are protests by hospital staff being held at hospitals around the country, although the media is not reporting it. According to Liberty Counsel Action, EMT workers have told them that 75% of their calls are from people who took the shots and who are having trouble breathing, or worse.)

At the lower levels, there are plenty of stories about pharmacists who keep getting caught administering saline solutions instead of the shots, because no decent person who understands what is in the shots would ever inject them into another human being. It is up to us common people to resist as the last line of defense. Unfortunately, there are also many at the lower levels who are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. Again, the power of the media is staggering. 

Consider the blind beggar in our story, how he was much wiser than the well-educated and well-heeled leaders who bullied and rejected him. Do not think for a second that the so-called ‘leaders’ and ‘officials’ are more qualified than you are to make your life decisions for you. Nor is your pastor. Unfortunately, many pastors are going along with the shots and failing to warn their flocks (Jer 12:10). It is therefore up to us to be the leaders, like this doctor who educated his local schoolboard. Like OAN‘s Pearson Sharp who shows the fallacies behind the official narrative. The Bible says we have been given power (John 1:12; 2 Tim 1:7; et al). We need to exercise it. Considering how things ended for the Pharisees when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD, let us consider where things are headed today, using an analogy from one of the classics: Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. The classics serve as a guide for just about everything, with the greatest classic of all being the Bible. In Gulliver’s Travels, Gulliver is captured by a gang of 6-inch-tall humans when he arrives in Lilliput. According to CliffsNotes, the Lilliputians were “mean and nasty, vicious, morally corrupt, hypocritical and deceitful, jealous and envious, filled with greed and ingratitude.” They used “petty, red-tape harassing” to achieve their political goals. The Notes go on to say that “Swift … uses the Lilliputians to show that English politicians were bloody-minded and treacherous.”

Despite being only 6” tall, the Lilliputians were able to gain control of Gulliver after he fell asleep on the beach. The Lilliputians were able to use their greater numbers to tie Gulliver down while he slept. When he awoke and tried to resist, the Lilliputians attacked Gulliver with tiny spears and arrows. Gulliver could have ripped their little ropes off and smashed his teeny attackers but he decided to play along with them. Because of Gulliver’s compassion for and patience with the Lilliputians, they were still able to maintain their control over him. He let them feed him, then carry him away on a cart pulled by 900 Lilliputians before padlocking his ankle to their temple. That is how it works. A bunch of petty little people on power trips are playing on the sympathies of the stronger, more benevolent people as they drive them into captivity, little-by-little. (Read distancing, masking, lockdowns, mandates, etc.)

What if you’re still not there yet. What if you are still thinking you can trust what they are telling us about COVID? Consider this: How do they know the Delta variant is spreading if there is no Delta variant test? 

What if it seems too hard to believe that the shots will lead to a worldwide holocaust in coming years as the autoimmune responses to the spike proteins continue to take effect, eventually snowballing out of control? More and more top scientists keep coming out as whistleblowers.

What if you are having trouble believing that the shots will lead to a worldwide medical ID and then ultimately to the mark of the beast? Read Revelation 13. Sweden is doing just fine despite having no lockdowns or mandates, while Israel is doing terribly, despite being the most ‘vaccinated’ and restricted country in the world. The same is true in the US. The states with the most restrictions and highest rates of ‘vaccination’ are the places that are doing the worst. See how that works? Much like the politicians in Israel, the governors in these states have made a covenant with death. 

In closing, although the Lilliputians freed Gulliver from his chain and continued to feed him, Gulliver eventually learned that they were intending to kill him. Gulliver’s enemies persuaded the king of Lilliput that feeding him was too expensive. Among other things, they accused him of being a traitor because of his compassion for their enemies, who subscribed to the Big-Endian heresy. So, Gulliver escaped under cover of night. Because of his compassion for them, he simply left while they slept rather than killing them. Our Lilliputians, the Deep State, aka the new world order, are planning to kill us much like Gulliver’s were, but our King is preparing an escape for us as well. He is going to fetch us away like a thief in the night. Meanwhile, we must make the best of things. Just as the beggar preached truth to the Pharisees, we likewise need to tell the truth to the Pharisees of our day. Because Jesus gave the Pharisees of his day plain unadulterated truth, offered without apology, many of them repented. Josephus is believed by many historians to have been a Pharisee and he clearly stated in his writings that Jesus is the Christ. Nobody is beyond redemption. All we can do is tell people the truth, whoever they are, because just as I said from the very beginning, it’s a hoax. It’s a depopulation program. I believe there are many ‘leaders’, who like Guliver, want to think the best of people and like Guliver they are going along with the crowd. Mayors, city counsel members, busieness executives, pastors, they are all just people like you and me. We have to tell them the truth the same way we would anyone else. Mike Adams explains the lengths the people at the top of the pyramid have gone to to concoct this hoax in this interview. He is being a leader. No matter how many times the talking heads in the media chant the ‘outbreak among the unvaccinated’ mantra, it still does not make it true. A Carnival cruise liner in the middle of the ocean recently had an outbreak despite the fact that every single soul on board was ‘vaccinated’. (And this is not an isolated incident. The same thing happened on the HMS Queen Elizabeth.) Of course, they did not consider the obvious, that it was the shots everyone took that caused the outbreak. Their solution was to make everyone on board wear a mask. One of Carnival’s ‘vaccinated’ senior officers recently died from his shots. Of course the article says ‘COVID’ killed him. There is death in the shots. There are tens of thousands of these cases, like this one, people who die shortly after taking the jab. And now they are going to force it on the troops. Why would they force an unapproved drug on US troops? Because it was not enough for them to assault them with the vaccine that caused Gulf War Syndrome. (More here.) Because as I explained in Dragon Slayer Jesus Christ, as far as the new world order is concerned, the American soldier is public enemy #1. If it was me I would take the court-martial instead, but soldiers should be able to get a religious exemption

When I was a kid we got some good advice from FLOTUS Nancy Reagan: Just say no [to drugs]. That is still good advice today. The mRNA shot is not a vaccine; it is a drug — a lethal drug. So when they tell you that you have to take the jab, just say no. If people do not say no they will not stop until they get the newborns. The overarching agenda is depopulation. According to the Georgia Guide Stones, their target is 500,000,000 for the entire planet. US residents can get help with a religious exemption to vaccine mandates here. If you are not a US resident, trust God stand on his promises. He will supply all your need according to his riches and glory in Christ Jesus. He promises to do a work in our day which we will not believe, though it be told us. Believe it. 

Finally, although YouTube banned his speech, Senator Rand Paul put it this way on Twitter (video and full transcript below). He is being a leader:

They can’t arrest us all. They can’t keep all your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed – although I’ve got a long list of ones they should.

We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and feckless bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs. We have all either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screening and testing so you can continue your drunk with power rein over the Capitol.

President Biden — we will not accept your agencies’ mandates or your reported moves toward a lockdown. No one should follow the CDC’s anti-science mask mandates. And if you want to shut down federal agencies again — some of which aren’t even back to work fully — I will stop every bill coming through the Senate with an amendment to cut their funding if they don’t come to work.

No more.

Local bureaucrats and union bosses — we will not allow you to do more harm to our children again this year. Children are not at any more risk from COVID than they are for the seasonal flu. Every adult who works in schools has either had the vaccine or had their chance to. There is no reason for mask mandates, part-time schools, or any lockdown measures.

Children are falling behind in school, and are being harmed physically and psychologically by the tactics you have used to keep them from the classroom last year. We won’t allow it again.

If a school system attempts to keep the children from full-time, in-person school, I will hold up every bill with two amendments. One to defund them, and another to allow parents the choice of where the money goes for their child’s education.

Do I sound fed up to you? That’s because I am.

I’m not a career politician. I’ve practiced medicine for 33 years. I graduated from Duke Medical School, worked in emergency rooms, studied immunology and virology, and ultimately chose to become a surgeon.

I have been telling everyone for a year now that Dr. Anthony Fauci and other public health officials were NOT following science, and I’ve been proven right time and time again.

But I’m not the only one who is fed up.

I can’t go anywhere these days — from work, to events, to airports and Ubers, restaurants and stores, without people coming up to me thanking me for standing up for them.

For standing up for actual science. For standing up for freedom. For standing against mandates, lockdowns, and bureaucratic power grabs.

I think the tide has turned, and more and more people are willing to stand up. I see stories from across the country of parents standing up to teacher unions and school boards.

I see members of Congress refusing to comply with Petty Tyrant Pelosi.

We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children?

Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not. Not this time. I choose freedom.


Conclusion: Be a leader. Share these notes or share some of the linked reports, but whatever you do, tell the truth and be a leader. You have the anointing of the Holy Spirit and He will empower you. Whenever you share the truth with someone, pray for him (2 Cor 10:4).
