The Healing Medicine
Dear Community of Christians,
The old chronicles at the time of the life of Jesus of Nazareth tells us about how society dealt with lepers:
The fear in people today of getting infected with a possibly serious disease is just as powerful. We may well ask ourselves, has nothing really changed in people's consciousness during the last 2,000 years?
Of course a big change has happened. Trust in the Science of medicine today is all-pervading and based on material substances put into material bodies. And the person is then healed, though sometimes only the symptoms in the foreground.
Healing in the past was based on divine-spiritual power as evidenced by the healings of Christ in the gospels. Certainly, in our time, this healing radiance of the Son of God is no longer present on earth.
And yet, since the events at Golgotha, this healing power of God has been present in every single human being. The difference to the consciousness of the past is our deeply lost power of faith, or even, the lost power of knowledge that this divine strength is a reality in us. This power can first heal our fear. And sometimes it can also heal physical illness today. There are enough examples in our time. A person's whole life can change from the ground up when a real healing has taken place.
The Gospel does not tell us about the further life of the nine healed lepers. But it is emphasized that the faith of the one who gave heart-filled thanks, or perhaps we could also call it conscious trust, has healed him.
That the healed leper adds his words of thanks to the gift of healing is an offering of soul substance. It is a new, knowledge imbued faith of the consciousness soul that makes the healing finally complete.
