The Account Of Just One Leper- Performance of Jesus
The man with leprosy or currently called "Henson Disease" is healed. Within these three reports, there is propinquity or closeness, and this is one of the seven pronounced miracles of Jesus where the narratives are intimately woven together. There are several that the Gospel writers omit.
Mark 1:40-45, presents an excellent opportunity to examine the ritual of cleansing as the manner of Moses. Jesus has not only the authority but the benevolence to grant the desire of the leper (not to be confused with the ten lepers). Leprosy was considered to be a terminal illness, and unless divine intervention occurred, the prediction of death was inevitable. The cleansing that Jesus speaks of refers to the sacrifice, including two white doves, one that is sacrificed and the other dipped in the blood and freed. The blood of the innocent is symbolic of a type of Christ, and the freed represents the act of salvation, where we are freed from the penalty of self-inflicted nonsense (SIN).
Luke 5:12-14, the definition of methodology. We have a proclivity to define acts of God with a definitive pattern or science, and that's humanistic. We are inherently and characteristically prone to humanize everything that God does for our convenience, and that misses the sovereignty of God every time. Biblical theologians hoping to find "the" formula of God consistently miss the Faith factor. The equation is factored with the peacotum of knowing what God wants before (Luke 5:16) commuting the act for His Glory.
When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 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.
Wonderful Counselor, Peleh Yo’etz (Isaiah 9:6), we thank You for propinquity of Christs' miracles. We praise You for our understanding of the workings of Jesus and the emphasis to Your Glory by which these works are done. We decree and declare blessings upon those who inherently prepare themselves for Your service, so that; by Your Grace and Power, we duplicate Your Will as revealed to us through prayer. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
