John 9:1–9 NKJV
1 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” 3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. 4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 6 When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. 7 And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing. 8 Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, “Is not this he who sat and begged?” 9 Some said, “This is he.” Others said, “He is like him.” He said, “I am he.”
Feast of Tabernacles Or Sukkot (SU_COAT)
Sukkot lasted for 8 days began and ended on Sabbath
Had rituals
Remember coming out of Egypt
And it pointed towards the coming of the Messiah
Burnt sacrifices
Lighting of huge menorahs
Pouring Water and Wine mixing together on the alter of sacrifices
-Couldn’t just be any water
-Had to be living water
-had to have a natural source like a spring or river that was moving
was a pool of water that was fed from a natural stream or river
The Pool of Siloam was a Mikveh
The Lower pool in Isaiah
Gihon spring
Built during the reign of Hezekiah
it was used in the jewish tradition for a source of purification
People would dip in the water and they would purify themselves from different things
it also could be used to signify life changing events
MIkveh was the source of the water they poured on the alter during the feast of Tabernacles
John 7:37–39 NKJV
37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
Isaiah 12:3 NKJV
3 Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation.
-He was showing them that he was the messiah
-He was also showing there’s going to be an outpouring of God’s spirit that was to come
-Now if we go back to the blind man
John 9:7 NKJV
7 And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
There’s an importance to him telling him to go wash in that specific pool
The pool of Bethesda was closer and more convenient (especially for a blind guy)
The Pool of Siloam was almost 4/10th of a mile away from where they were
Roughly 2,020 feet away
He spit in the ground and anointed the eyes of the blind man with clay
They he sends him to the pool
He was building his faith in that walk
There was an anointed expectation
He just encounter Jesus
Faith expects the unexpected
There’s an anointed expectation here tonight
