That healing of body, mind and spirit would happen on the Day of Redemption whenever that might be. I still think that, but now I also have a different angle on this scripture, and can see how it was a prophetic word for the day when the Messiah would come and save His people from their sins and heal their hearts and minds, infusing joy.
In that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see. Your eye is the lamp of your body. Does He who implanted the ear not hear? He restores my soul. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him.
I thank God for giving me this new insight. I think it also refers to Heaven, though, as "only the redeemed will walk there"..
Even those who are tone deaf will sing. Glorious thought. We hope that those who currently see with just one spiritual eye, the Bible, will recognize the wisdom of not rejecting the Book of Mormon as a second eyewitness of Jesus Christ before they even give it a try.

You will find the power to stay on the strait and narrow path. Binocular vision helps a person to see more of, or all of, an object behind an obstruction. This advantage was pointed out by Leonardo da Vinci, who noted that a vertical column obscuring an object might block some or all of the object from the left eye but that the object might yet be visible to the right eye.
Because Jesus did not identify those other sheep, the Jews could not decipher His statement. Like two eyes divinely paired, the Bible and the Book of Mormon complement each other, resulting in a spectacular binocular panorama, as well as vistas unique to each.
We all have a blind spot in our field of vision that is relatively easy to identify. Close your left eye and focus your right eye directly on the small circle.
Proverbs Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
The Eyes of the Blind Shall See. By Elder Lynn G. Robbins. Of the Presidency of the Seventy. Elder Lynn G. Robbins. We may consider the coming forth of the. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. The blind will see, and the ears of the deaf will be healed. Good News.
Proverbs A rich man may be wise in his own eyes, but a poor man who has discernment sees through him. Proverbs Do you see a man who speaks in haste? Ecclesiastes Be happy, young man, while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you to judgment.
Isaiah , 21 Woe to those Let it approach, let the plan of the Holy One of Israel come, so we may know it. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed. Isaiah This is what God the LORD says - He Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, Who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it: 'I, the LORD , have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
I will not give My glory to another or My praise to idols. See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you. Ezekiel They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people. Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. He will bring me out into the light; I will see His righteousness. Matthew , Luke How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye?
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. Matthew When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples to ask Him, 'Are you the One Who was to come, or should we expect someone else?

In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: 'You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.
