One would have thought that a blind man crying out for Jesus for help would have at lest drawn sympathy from those who “see” and are following Jesus. This can be said not to be so in what was obtainable. As this blind man cried, those who went before warned him that he should be quiet. The world system has not changed. Even today, the world wants to silence anyone who is desperately crying out for my Saviour. You can easily be shown other believers – even preachers - who are not doing so well. Some rich people have not been allowed to address the issues of their lives as we praise and celebrate their coming to Christ. This gives them a false sense of arrival.
