Matthew 11:2-5(KJV); Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
The ultimate sign of the operation of the person of Christ in the life of a believer is firstly, sight.
This is why in the order of the manifestation of the works and glory of God as seen from our theme scripture, sight to the blind is the first to be mentioned.
Understand that this is not only physical sight but spiritual sight.
It was the heart of Christ during His life on the earth. He tells Nathaniel, “Greater things shall you see” (John 1:50).
There are realities of the Christ through His Word that He wants us to see.
Paul follows this mandate and declared that his part was “To make men see…” (Ephesians 3:9).
God wants you to open the Word and see; for your eyes to be opened to His insights and His person. What are His depths, height, breadth, and length? Who is Christ? How does the line of the Melchizedec priesthood work? How do we minister in the sanctuary?
It is one thing to open a blind eye physically but it is another to cause a man to see God.
It is one thing to make a lame man walk physically but it is another to open the Word and point Him to the Christ.
Miracles are wonderful but perform them and let men see Christ in His depth.
Prophecy is good and has its place but having seen something about an individual, let them see Christ through His Word so that the Word and the Spirit agree.

The ultimate sign of the operation of the person of Christ in the life of a believer is firstly, sight. This is not only physical but spiritual sight.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for this Word. It casts vision upon my spirit and causes me to see you deeper. The eyes of my understanding are flooded with light. I know the hope for which I am called and the riches of your glorious inheritance in the saints. By this very sight, I walk in the spirit and by this very sight, I am cleansed from any form of leprosy. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
