“Disobedient ‘Healed’ Lepers – 101”…Blog.
*** (Mark 1:40-to-45) Then a leper came to Jesus and began pleading with him. He fell on his knees and said to Him, “If you want to, You can make me clean.”
(Mar 1:41) Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand; touched him; and said to him, “I do want to. Be made clean!:
(Mar 1:42) Instantly the leprosy left him; and he was clean.
(Mar 1:43) Then Jesus sternly warned him and sent him away at once,
(Mar 1:44) telling him, “See to it that you don't say ‘anything’: to anyone. = Instead, go and ‘show’ yourself to the priest; and then ‘offer’ for your cleansing what Moses commanded as ‘PROOF’ to the authorities.”
(Mar 1:45) But when the man left; he began to proclaim it freely. He spread the word so widely; that Jesus could no longer enter a town openly; but had to stay out in deserted places. Still, people kept coming to him from everywhere.
Those who are ‘Truly Born Again’… by the Holy Spirit of God; often speak about how Christ Jesus healed! But have you ever heard them… ‘Speak’ about the ‘Disobedience’ of those “Healed Lepers”…? True Belief in Christ Jesus… must be… “Only According to the Scriptures!” And that True Belief… “Must be followed by “Obedience to His Holy Word!” No other ‘belief’ in Christ Jesus… will bring ‘Eternal Salvation!’ Many of the “Religious”… will fill ‘Hell’… until the “Lake of Fire”… ‘Receives Them’! If your belief in “Christ Jesus”… has some ‘other authority’… like your ‘Church or Denomination’… ‘You’ are “NOT”… Truly Born Again! Today many want religious talk… pictures of Jesus… and ‘Other Religious Trappings’… instead of the “Holy Word of GOD”…! Say it isn’t So…? Why then do ‘You’ NOT… “Read & Study”… the Holy Word of God… “Daily”…?
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and do ‘Not’ do - what I [Jesus] say?
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said; will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now He said this about the [Holy] Spirit; Whom those who were believing in Him were to receive. For the Spirit was not yet present; because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
*** (Revelation 20:12-to-15) And I saw the dead, the small and the great, stand before God. And books were opened; and another book was opened; which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
(Rev 20:13) And the sea gave up the dead in it. And ‘death and hell’ delivered up the dead in them. And ‘each one’ of them was judged according to their works.
(Rev 20:14) And ‘death and hell’ were cast; into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.
(Rev 20:15) And if ‘anyone’ was not found; having been written in the Book of Life; he was cast [alive] into the Lake of Fire.
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying; It is written that “man shall not live by bread alone; but by every Word of God.”
*** (2Corinthians 4:16) For this cause we do not faint; but though our outward man perishes; yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah; that I will send a ‘famine’ in the land; not a ‘famine’ of bread nor a thirst for water; but of = ‘hearing’ = the Words of Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
Why did Christ Jesus ‘command’ the Lepers… He healed; to go show themselves to the Priests and Offer that Sacrifices ‘commanded’ in the Law of Moses…? If ‘You’ read through each of the “Four Gospel” accounts of Christ Jesus… ‘Healing Lepers’… “Not One” of them; Obeyed Jesus! Do ‘You’ know the Holy Word of God; and the requirements of being healed from… “Leprosy”…? By the Law of Moses… given by God; to His People Israel… a ‘two’ seven day period was required! When those lepers ‘disobeyed’ Christ Jesus… “Failed” their “14 day witness” for Him! Instead they told the crowds… which cause Christ Jesus to be swamped by people. Many had to leave the towns and go to the wilderness to hear Him…! Today as in Jesus’ day… those “MANY”… who believe in Him… “OFTEN”… do not want to: “Know or Obey”… “His Holy Word!”
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word; and NOT merely hearers who “DECEIVE” themselves.
*** (Deuteronomy 24:8) Be careful in the plague of leprosy; that you watch carefully and do according to all; that the priests the Levites shall teach you. As I commanded them; you shall be careful to do.
*** (Leviticus 13:1-to-end of chapter) And Jehovah The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,
(Lev 13:2) When a man has a rising in the skin of his flesh; or a scab or bright spot; and it is in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest, or to one of his sons the priests.
(Lev 13:3) And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh. And if the hair in the plague has turned white; and the plague in sight is deeper than the skin of his flesh; it is a plague of leprosy. And the priest shall look on him; and shall pronounce him: “unclean”.
(Lev 13:4) And if the bright spot is white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight is not deeper than the skin; and the hair of it has not turned white; then the priest shall shut up the plague seven days.
(Lev 13:5) And the priest shall look on him the seventh day. And behold, if the plague in his sight is stayed; the plague has not spread in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up “seven days more”.
(Lev 13:6) And the priest shall look on him again in the seventh day. And, behold, if the plague is somewhat dark; the plague has not spread in the skin; the priest shall pronounce him “clean”. It is a scab. And he shall wash his clothes and be clean.
“Do ‘You’ know your Bible? – 101”
‘Many’ who call themselves “Christian”… have never read “Leviticus 13”… or even ‘All’ of the OT…! ‘Many’ of those same people… only know a Few NT verses…! Someone once said to me, “Why are you so critical in your blogs?” To that ‘false accusation’ I simply responded… “How can ‘ONE’… call the Blessed Name of Christ JESUS… and then “Not Love His Holy Word”…? Do ‘You’ not know… Christ Jesus is the Living Word of GOD…? Do ‘You’ now know… that Satan does ‘Not’ want Christ’s ‘True Children’… “To ‘Know’ the Holy Word of GOD”…? He would rather have ‘You’ completely ignorant of the Holy Word of GOD…! That way ‘You’ would never say; as Christ Jesus did… “It is Written”…! Those who truly “Know HIM”… ‘Know & Use’… His Holy Word; in the continuing Spiritual Battle for the… “Hearts & Minds & Souls”… of those “Dying in their SIN/SINS”…!
