This week I was at an awesome conference in Cluj with my sister

Linda. The speaker at the conference was Kris Vallotton. He is

the senior associate pastor under the senior pastor Bill Johnson
at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and travels around the
world to minister to thousands of people. He chose to come to
Romania, too. I'm very happy that he did that. He's such an
inspiration and a humble man. He makes himself vulnerable by
sharing his mistakes and struggles to show that he's still a
human being who is on his journey with the Father.
I want to share a few stories with you which Kris Vallotton
shared with us. The first one is known to you, but I want to
highlight to you what he said. We all know that Jesus healed a
man born blind, but let us read the story again or if you don't
want to, then listen to/watch it:
"As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind
from birth. 2 Rabbi, his disciples asked him, why was this man
born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents
sins? 3 It was not because of his sins or his parents sins,
Jesus answered. This happened so the power of God could be seen
in him. 4 We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the
one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work.
But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.
Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and
spread the mud over the blind mans eyes. 7 He told him, Go wash
yourself in the pool of Siloam (Siloam means sent). So the
man went and washed and came back seeing!" (John 9:1-7)
The Jews saw people with a physical disorder as sinners who
followed other gods and they were spitted on, marginalized and
laughed about, because the Law made them impure and unclean:
"Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to
the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.
However if you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully
follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all
these curses will come on you and overtake you: [...curses...]

The LORD will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion
of mind." (Deuteronomy 28:14,15,27)

That's why the disciples asked Jesus who sinned because of his
blindness. When Jesus came close to the place where this man
stood, the blind man heard a noise. It was like someone's
gathering his spittle in the mouth and wanted to spit on him.
Perhaps he cowered, because he heard this sound for so many
years although he knew who was coming near to him. But when
Jesus' spittle had another direction, he didn't know what's
happening. As we know, Jesus spit on the ground (not as in the
video in his and he made mud out of the dust. He
spread the mud on his eyes and told him to wash in a pool. We
don't know how far this pool was, but we know that when he
washed himself with that water, he was healed and could see.

God used the man's curse and used it to heal him, because he
didn't want him to just heal him, but make him whole again.

Jesus takes your curse and uses it to heal you, because He wants
not only to heal you, but to make you whole again.
