It is sad that Christ Jesus would have to ask this question; it was sad then, and sad now. The wicked system desires to control our healing, peace, and when we worship. Jn. 5 shows us up close and personal how the Tares work.
This gentleman was infirm for 38 yrs.. We can fill in the ___ with our personal, or family members illness/disease. If asked "Wilt thou be made Whole", and we had to think about it - means something is not right. Maybe the system didn't heal us, or give us permission to be healed. What about benefits from Santa-Christ: will they be cut?
Is this healing in question, regulated, or taxed?? Work out the details before answering. Jn. states that Christ healed[whole] the infirm and ordered him to "Take up his bed and walk". All the Tares[Matt.13:38] could say is "It is the Sabbath day: It is not lawful for the to carry thy bed."
Bondage is the playground of the wicked. Sabbath is a day of rest-and they demand to control that. They are not the least bit concerned with healing. Christ violated their Tradition-resulting in a Death Penalty. The Sabbath violation would do, but they were ticked at the infirm for his testimony.
What testimony? Christ made the man Whole; Now he was walking around with his bed! The LORD is not done; "Wilt thou be made Whole" ?
