John 9:1-7 (KJV)
1 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.
Here we see a somewhat hard to understand portion of scripture.
What does it mean, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."?
Notice that the man was "born blind". Like all of us...we were born spiritually dead and blind.
Why was this?....so that the works of God could be made manifest! So that God...as a Saviour...could be made manifest. So that God as a healer could be made manifest.
Jesus, the Light of the world came and IS HERE...still here, and as He was "sent"...so He sendeth us! Notice the "pool of Siloam"...'Siloam' means SENT.
Has not "night" come? Has not darkness covered the earth and gross darkness the people? (Isaiah 60:2) Surely it has.
But, Jesus...the Light of the world, is here in His body...to work the works of God. We have been given "night vision"!!!
He has Anointed our eyes in this hour to SEE.
He is giving sight to the blind. To those who admit they cannot see without God's Spirit guiding and enlightening.
The "eagle Anointing" is our portion in this hour! We rise higher and see further!
"It shall be light in the evening time" Zech. 14:7
Glory be to God.

Hosea 6:2 After two days will He revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight.
"There is a divine Anointing upon us that sets us apart; there can be no compromise."
