Healing the Leper
When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou
wilt, thou canst make me clean.
And Jesus put forth his hand and touched him, saying, I will; be thou
clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew
thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a
testimony unto them.
And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeeling down to
him, and saying unto him, It thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand and touched him,
saying, I will; be thou clean.
And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him,
and he was cleansed.
And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;
And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man; but go thy way,
shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which
Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
Leprosy, one of the most dreaded of all diseases to which mankind has made
himself subject, is a result of the "unpardonable sin," or misuse of the
divine creative force, which was so prevalent during Lemurian and Atlan-
tean times. "As the Holy Spirit is the creative energy in Nature, the sex
energy is its reflection in man, and misuse or abuse of that power is the
sin that is not forgiven, but must be expiated in impaired efficiency of the
vehicles, in order thoroughly to teach us the sanctity of the creative
force." (Cosmo-Conception, p. 468)
Paracelsus, the great physician-healer of the 15th century, stated: "An
intimate tie binds the generator to that which is generated. Past genera-
tions are utilized in the construction of the future body; they are woven into
the body as a tendency to some ailment, affecting either disposition or the
life forces. This poison of past lives must somewhere be changed into
healthfulness." Thus the Law of Cause and Efffect works to teach man how to
live according to the laws of God.
However, Christ brought grace, through which a person by repentance,
restitution, and reform may absolve his destiny. Even the leper may use this
divine formula to receive the healing Christ Power and be relieved of his
burden. A definite change in consciousness of course is required in this
process, and unless such a change takes place, the healing will be at best
It was the sin of our progenitors in ancient Lemuria that they scattered
their seed regardless of law and without love. But it is the privilege of
the Christian to redeem himself by purity of life in remembrance of the
Lord. John says, "His seed remaineth in him."
In modern times leprosy has given way to cancer, which also results from
ungoverned desires. Science has provided a degree of assistance in "curing"
both these terrible diseases, but a permanent remedy can be found only
through educating people to understand the sacredness of the Holy Spirit
within man and to learn to live the life of self-control which respects and
obeys the laws of God.
