Christ is the Long-Awaited Messiah


Matthew 9:27-31


Two blind men asked Jesus Christ for a cure.

They addressed Jesus as the Son of David.

He confirmed that He was the Messiah.

But He told the blind men not to say so.


Jesus was not a great politician.

He was a humble servant for mankind.

The cured blind men were disobedient.

They spread His fame because they were joyful.


I had eye problems for quite a long time.

Then I had helpful corneal transplants.


My eyes are fine now.  Here is something from

The Hebrew poet Yehuda Amic-

hai.  “The passing years have calmed me and brought

Healing to my heart and rest to my eyes.”
