God he comes not from
The Gospel of John Nine Eight thru Sixteen
8 His neighbors and those who had seen him earlier as a beggar said, “Isn’t this the one who used to sit and beg?” 9 Some said, “It is,” but others said, “No, he just looks like him.” He said, “I am.” 10 So they said to him, “[So] how were your eyes opened?” 11 He replied, “The man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and told me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash.’ So I went there and washed and was able to see.” 12 And they said to him, “Where is he?” He said, “I don’t know.” 13 They brought the one who was once blind to the Pharisees. 14 Now Jesus had made clay and opened his eyes on a sabbath. 15 So then the Pharisees also asked him how he was able to see. He said to them, “He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and now I can see.” 16 So some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, because he does not keep the sabbath.” [But] others said, “How can a sinful man do such signs?” And there was a division among them.
Many a rule has changed over the centuries of divine intervention where our right and wrong set of rules was established by God through the chosen one of Moses. Simply put there could not be any work performed on the Sabbath and Christ’s healing miracles performed on a prescribed day of rest weren’t considered the right thing to do when you were taught not to do anything on this day. Why you may ask. Some may say jealousy others may say rules of the times while even some may say sheer stupidity but whatever it was it was surely an eye witnessed account of freedom to live in God’s Holy Will for without this division there would be no Rescue by the Cross of Mercy we embrace today.
Such is the Way of the Cross for granting us Life Eternal was devasting knowing what He had to endure before it actually happened granting us Mercy. These are steps recited weekly during Lent coming to know His Passion first-hand makes you cry a bit. (1) Jesus is condemned to death, (2) Jesus accepts the cross, (3) Jesus falls the first time, (4) Jesus meets His Mother, (5) Simon of Cyrene carries the cross, (6) Veronica wipes the face of Jesus, (7) Jesus falls the second time, (8) Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem, (9) Jesus falls the third time, (10) Jesus is stripped of His garments, (11) Crucifixion: Jesus is nailed to the cross, (12) Jesus dies on the cross, (13) Jesus’ body is removed from the cross and (14) Jesus is laid in the tomb and covered in incense.
Jesus wasn’t wrong then and He isn’t wrong now in the life of those who need him most I the sinner of daily deeds of toast. Let us harken to His Cross as the medication in proper docility dose. Be at peace with your Maker where the Son sits as Host. Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Prayers for our son Gabriel and Allen Thomas Wiggins. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Silence for the prayers of others. CORO-19 prayers globally. Holy Spirit and St Joseph CC & Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**God he comes not from**
Beggar earlier seen by neighbors without eyes of sight
Can’t be argued but yes it is obvious puzzled fright
Calling him to testify keeping the Sabbath right
Pharisees listened to his miracle Jesus anointing delight
God he comes not from
Sabbath not kept work he should shun
Signs such can’t be from a sinful one
Division much occurred by Jesus called the Son
