You are Sent!


John 9:1-7
1"As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?” 3 Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4 We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.” 6 When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, 7 and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing."

Jesus said, “So that the works of God might be displayed in him.” The disciples were looking for cause, or blame, and Jesus said, let's display the works of God in him.

Notice He said, "WE (not just He) must work the works of Him who SENT Me as long as it is day." God the Father is the One who sent Jesus. When a person is SENT by someone, they carry the power and authority to do what that someone sent them to do. A soldier sent into a battlefield is armed with both the power and authority to do what he was sent to do on behalf of his nation. Jesus was authorized and empowered by God to do the works of God that He was sent here to do, and He included the disciples in that.

Jesus came to give life and life abundantly (John 10:10). He was SENT to the earth to give life and life abundantly. He fulfilled His mission here, and then. . .

He SENT us—

In Matthew 28:18 Jesus told us to "Go."

18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

We are sent to do the works of God—preach, teach, disciple nations, heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, cleanse the lepers--and we have His authority and power to do so. (Mark 16:17-18,  Matthew 10:7-8, John 14:12, Acts 1:8).

He SENT us the Holy Spirit so we can do the works of God as He did.

Acts 10:38:
38 You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

Jesus said while He is in the world He is the Light of the world (John 9:5).
He also said WE are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14).
And if we believe in Him, we will do the works He did, and even greater works (John 14:12).  

We are SENT to be the LIGHT of the world, as He was when He was here, and we have the same Holy Spirit, to enable us to do our part in being the light we are called to be.

Once again, Jesus said, “We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day…”
It is day as long as there is LIGHT.
We are the light, and we are in the earth, so it is day.
It is TIME to do the works of God in the earth, in Jesus’ Name.
We are SENT.

And, look at the name of the pool Jesus told this blind man to wash in-
Siloam, means SENT! (John 9:7).

The blind man was sent to Sent (Siloam).
He was sent with a word from Jesus to do something.
He was obedient to the word (to wash off the clay in the pool).
The authority and power of God for his healing was carried in his obedience.
He was sent to display the works of God in himself, which was accomplished by the word and power of the Lord, through his obedience to go where he was sent and do what he was told.

We are all sent to earth by God for a reason.

Find your purpose and pursue it. As you pursue the purpose of God, all you need to accomplish that will come--healing, miracles, provision, strength, help, etc.
We get it backwards sometimes when we pursue something like healing or provision first before God’s purpose. We think we have to have certain things before we can do what God has called us to do. But instead, we must grab hold of that which He grabbed hold of us for (Philippians 3:12), and as we do, what we need to complete our purpose will come. 

Find your purpose and go after it!

It’s still day, it’s still time, as long as the light is here.
We are the light, and we have the LIGHT in us.
We have the “sent” word to GO…

Make it personal and say, 
HERE AM I, LORD, SEND ME! (Isaiah 6:8).

A call and response exhortation for the nation

Get up and walk!
Come out of your paralysis.
You’ve been paralyzed, unable to do what you need to do.
Rise and be healed!
Believe in the Lord!
Rise in faith, for your sins are forgiven (Luke 5:17-26).

The Spirit of evangelism is on you right now.
This is where God is moving.
This will free you from your paralysis.
GOD IS MOVING. Move with Him, in Him.
In Him ONLY do you live, move and exist (Acts 17:28).
If you try and move apart from Him, you’ll be paralyzed—not able to move.

Zacharias couldn’t speak because of UNBELIEF (Luke 1:20).
As the religious spirit is paralyzed, you must be free from it to move with God and do His works!
The religious spirit is full of UNBELIEF and HYPOCRISY.

PARALYSIS requires healing and SLEEP PARALYSIS requires an awakening!
Come out of both!
Come out of your sleep paralysis!
Wake up! Blow the trumpet! Sound the alarm!

Evangelism is not only for the salvation of unbelievers,
but for believers to fully accept Jesus as true Lord of their lives.
A continual, increasing Lordship of Jesus over your life.
Fully embrace Jesus as Lord.

Open our eyes!
Wake us up so we see You, and what You are doing (John 5:19).
So we get up and do the same (John 14:10, 12).
Give us true faith—the revelation of You in our heart that frees us from paralysis.
See our faith, our determination, to get to You at all costs (Mark 2:5; Mark 5:28).

You intercessors who are carrying a paralyzed America—
Tear off the roof!
You’ve said, “No matter what, we must get America to You. Lord, see our faith!”
God sees, and He says to the paralyzed nation, Rise, get up and walk!
Move with Me!

God is moving. Catch up and keep up.
Follow the pillar. Follow His move. Follow Him. (Exodus 13:21).
Come out of unbelief and hypocrisy. (Luke 1:20, Matthew 15:8).
Throw off the religious spirit.
Religion paralyzes.
If you keep doing what you’ve been doing, when He has moved on to something else,
then you won’t be able to move.

Hypocrisy is when God has moved on, but His people didn’t move with Him.
Hypocrisy is when the lips honor Him, but the heart is far from Him (Matthew 15:8/Isaiah 29:13).

Save these ones who have experienced a false salvation. Who didn’t really believe, who didn’t have true faith in their heart, yet we led them in a prayer. We only gave them religion. We created hypocrites and discipled them in it! God forgive us and save them!

Fully yield to the Lordship of Jesus.
His Spirit of evangelism is rising on you. Rise with Him.
Let true faith rise in your heart, in your land.
Receive the revelation from the Spirit of God of who Jesus is,
the drawing of the Father Himself. (John 6:44, 45, 65; Isaiah 54:13, Jeremiah 31:34).
Let faith germinate in your heart!

We are humble, yet determined (Matthew 8:8, Mark 7:25-30).
We respond to You and Your Word.
We will get up and walk.
We will join with You to do Your will.
Breathe Your Word into us so we preach and teach Your true gospel
With Your presence, power, and boldness (Acts 4:29-31).

His Word has been breathed into you.
Breathe in His Word and believe!
Let faith rise.
Receive His Spirit, His presence, His power, His bold parrésia anointing to speak His Word (Acts 4:29-31).

Get up and walk!
Hope rides on the dawn.
