John 9:39 (KJV) 39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
Jesus came to seek and to save the lost; He came to give His life as a ransom for us. He was anointed to preach the Gospel, to heal, and to deliver. We’re familiar with those reasons. Those are preached about—often, and that’s good. He has other reasons why He came; one of those is judgment. It’s most often received as something that’s negative. But it’s not; judgment doesn’t necessarily equate to condemnation.
His judgment is so that those who are blind may see, and that those who don’t realize they’re blind may also realize their real conditions, and that they too may really see. God wants everyone to see the truth, to believe the truth, to abide in the truth. He wants everyone to live free from lies and deception. That’s the only way we can really live in reality. There’s no lie in God; there’s no darkness in Him, that’s the reality He wants us to live in—reality in God.
Better to be corrected than to live in error. He judges us now so we won’t be condemned. A judgment of a different kind will come, not the corrective kind, but the final kind. We don’t worry; for believers, it’s not a sad time; it’s a time when everything will come to light; it’s a time of revelation; it’s a moment of our ultimate vindication. For others, it will be a day of surprise and horrible shock. Our eyes, hearts, and minds are open. God makes sure we see.
