It is the root of spiritual adultery that causes people to be sign-seekers (Matthew 12:39; James 4:4-5). A sign is that which points to something else. Don’t make the sign your destination! If you do, your last state will become worse than the first (Matthew 12:45).
Diligent GOD-seekers receive the reward — which is God Himself (Hebrews 11:6). Along the way, their journey consists of:
1. Becoming a nobody (John 9:6) — responding to God in faith (II Kings 5:10-14) and honesty (Mark 8:22-26).
2. No compromise (John 9:13-33) — freed from fear of your relatives and fear of religious people.
3. The Intercessor (John 9:34-35) — even if you feel all alone, Jesus is looking for you.
4. Revelation (John 9:36-37) — the second “eye-opening” (Matthew 11:25), when we receive knowledge of God Himself, beyond just His works (Psalm 103:7).
5. Worship (John 9:38) — the response that comes from within us when Jesus becomes preeminent (Colossians 1:18; Psalm 27:8).
