RBCSC broadcast of Dec. 10, 2004

Pastor Alfred Chompff sent us a comment of Fridays Dec. 10, 2004 broadcast on 5,775 kHz (2000-2100 UTC):

This is the second sermon on John chapter 9. God uses the healing of this blind man as a type or picture of salvation. The formerly blind man said to the Pharisees, “He opened My Eyes”. God did it 100%. I did not ask for it, and neither did I deserve it. Salvation is entirely by grace. By definition “grace” is a free gift from God, like John 1:13 says, “Which were born (again), not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”. This man was born blind, just like we all were spiritually blind from birth. In the past we all were enemies of God, and were by nature children of the wrath of God, even as others (Eph 2:3).

This man was a beggar. Which means that this man was completely dependent on free gifts. We too have nothing to offer to God, because all our works are tainted with sin. Our only hope is an unconditional free gift from God. God gave us His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who in fact is God Himself. “For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Col 2:9).

Vile, wretched man nailed Him to a cross. But God orchestrated this sin of man, and God brought salvation to many, because the crucifixion of Christ was an atonement for the sins of many.

Therefore, in the healing of this blind beggar God provided a picture of salvation, whereby God chose vile and wretched beggars on the dunghill, and sets them among princes, and makes them inherit the throne of glory (1Sam 2:8).

AMEN.

Pastor Alfred J. Chompff.

You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. Revelation, 3. 17
