God heels, why we call it "Miracle Healing"?
Does God heal and forgives sins without offerings? Was Israel under Godís protection for short time? Did God allow Moses to condemn the lawless people "sinners" to death by stoning, to heal the sick, to cleanse, and to offer? Do animals' bloods and the waters cure sickness or used for spiritual cleansing = [sanctification] or just symbolism that must be observed as well?
After Moses' death, God appointed Samuel to lead the children of Israel to cross Jordan River to the Promised Land. Then, the Israelites demanded from Samuel a king to rule and judge over them for Monarchy system. Israel were ruled by God; however, the people disliked the theocracy system because they never believed that they are protected by Godís and led through His prophets according to His commandments.
Samuel prayed to God and asked for wisdom to lead the Israelites. God said to Samuel: [this people did not reject you, but they have rejected me.] God took them out of Egypt but they served other gods. God spoke to Samuel to tell his people what manner of king shall rule over them that they will be judged and ruled and paying taxes without mercy. The children of Israel didnít care, they insisted to have king to rule over them.
Then, God said to Samuel, ďTell my people that I would not hear them when they need meĒ.
When Samuel told the people as God commanded him to say, they insisted to have king to rule over them instead God, First Samuel 8:1 to 22.
Note: since Moses and Samuel ruled over the Children of Israel through Godís commandments. God protected His people from the hands of Philistines = (Palestine) = (Palestinians) and the enemies, and healed them from their sickness and answered their prayers. God took them out of Egypt trough the wilderness for 40 years with the same sandals on their feet, and supplied them with heavenly food ďmannaĒ for forty years journey they never hungered and never thirsted. When the children of Israel were ruled by theocracy system, they were healed from their sickness, some were judged according to Godís Law and many were forgiven. In this generation, the people contradict Godís Law ďthe TorahĒ concerning cleansing through animalsí bloods and waters. It sounds fiction, in reality the animalí blood is for the sinís offering, and the water is used for cleansing. In reality, God heals and cleanses; the bloods and the waters are symbolisms only.
Then, God said to Samuel ďtell my people that I would not hear them when they need me in that dayĒ, First Samuel 8:18.
During Mosesí era, the people were healed from their sickness, forgiven, and protected through their prayers and offerings. God always appear to them in the clouds and spoke to their prophets constantly. During Moses' era, God allowed Moses to judge His people according to His Law. The death penalty was valid through Moses also. However, was Moses perfect without sin to judge sinners to death according to the Torah? We don't know, however, Moses killed an Egyptian; did God forgive Moses for this crime? I believe He did. Nevertheless, Moses transgressed God again in the wilderness when he took waters out of the rock without praising God. Therefore, God prohibited Moses to enter into the Promised Land. Did Moses Judge sinners to death before his transgression? Even it was before that incident, Moses did kill an Egyptian. Therefore, Moses wasn't judging the people; he was fulfilling what God commanded through His Law.
When the Pharisees were stoning an adulterous woman in public, Jesus said to them: whosoever without sin, throw the first stone. It means that transgressor is not permitted to condemn sinners; a blind can't lead another blind. There were no righteous prophets or judges to condemn sinners to death. Jesus said: [no one is perfect, God is.] Therefore, the death penalty must be issue by God only, not by men. There are certain crimes that could be condemned through high priest or judges according to the Torah, excluding the death penalty.
When the Israelites decided to have a king to rule over them instead God, God forsake them and promised not answer their prayers, First Samuel 8:1 to 22. Then, Samuel said to them: the Lord God doesnít forsake His people, but you should do well in His sight, and you shall not die and your king also, First Samuel 12:1 to 25. Jesus = (Yeshua) confirms Godís Law that concerns cleansing and healing through offerings. God still heal through the Torahís Law, it mean through cleansing and sinsí offerings. God is merciful.
The scripture reads: [12 And as he entered into a certain town, there met him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off; 13 And lifted up their voice, saying: Jesus = (Yeshua), master, have mercy on us. 14 Whom when he saw, he said: Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, as they went, they were made clean. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was made clean, went back, with a loud voice glorifying God. 16 And he fell on his face before his feet, giving thanks: and this was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus = (Yeshua) answering, said, were not ten made clean? And where are the nine? 18 There is no one found to return and give glory to God, but this stranger. 19 And he said to him: Arise, go thy way; for thy faith hath made thee whole,] Luke 17:12 to 19.
The above passage tells us that those men were healed through their obedient to Godís Law; and through the cleansing offerings. Jesus was able to heal them but he wants to prove that he didnít come to abolish Godís Law. Therefore, Jesus= (Yeshua) commanded them to show themselves to the priest. The waters and the blood are symbolisms, which they must be observed as well. Those symbolisms are the acceptance's signs to Godís Law. God placed rules in His Law to visit the priest and to obey His Commandments that are in His Law. The priest, the bloods, and the waters are symbolisms and signs for our obedience to Godís Word. The circumcision is the acceptance's sign to Godís divine covenant also. Therefore, the circumcision is a law that must be observed. Jesus = (Yeshua) said that the circumcision is not of Moses it is of the fathers, (John 7: 22), which means from the covenant that God made with Abraham the father of many nations. The circumcision covenant was not issued from God to Abraham and his seed only. Godís covenant is perpetual and for mankind. God said to Abraham: [MY COVENANT SHALL BE IN YOUR FLESH FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT]. In Genesis 17:12 to 14, God said, His covenant is everlasting covenant, it means forever. Even Jesus was circumcised on the eighth day of his birth, and obeyed God's Law fully. Are the modern Christians more superior to Jesus to abolish God's Law entirely?
Jesus = (Yeshua) said: [Go offer for your cleansing, ACCORDING to Moses COMMANDED,] Luke 5:14. This passage explains that faith is not the only way for salvation and healing. Jesus healed the sick man, but he told him to offer as Moses commanded. Jesus confirmed God's Law that was announced to Moses. Therefore, he told the sick man to offer according to the Law. It means that healing is through our faith in God and through the cleansing offerings observation. The sick man was healed before he offered to God "according to the Law". However, Jesus didn't exclude this component of the Law. Therefore, Jesus commanded the healed man to offer according to the Law. The Law that Moses spoke is of God and not of Moses. Therefore, we must obey God's Law "Torah" fully.
When Samuel grew old, he permitted his sons Joel and Abiah to judge over Israel. Nevertheless, Joshuaís children were after profits, brides, and perverted judgment.
Healing and raising the dead
The bible indicates many events about healing and raising the dead through miracles without offerings. Example: Elijah raised the dead without offerings. The disciples raised the dead and healed the sick without offerings. Jesus raised a young girl and Lazarus from the dead without offerings. However, these events were done through exceptional miracles through prophets and the Son of God Jesus Christ. God heals individual through Miracles without offering. Example: when a person is healed through prayer ďmiracleĒ, this person is not obliged to offer, unless this person promised to offer through a vow. According to Godís Law, the person must present the cleansing offering during prayer before receive healing. It means that we should obey Godís Law, unless God performs miracles without offering. Healing through offerings is miracle also. An offering is not medication to cure sickness; it is done through God and not through the offerings. The offerings are symbolisms and requirements to fulfill Godís Commandments.
The passage about the young girl = (damsel) reads: 35 While he was yet speaking, some come from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying: Thy daughter is dead: why dost thou trouble the master any further? 36 But Jesus = (Yeshua) having heard the word that was spoken, saith to the ruler of the synagogue: Fear not, only believe. 37 And he admitted not any man to follow him, but Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And they come to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he sees a tumult, and people weeping and wailing much. 39 And going in, he said to them: Why make you this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleeps. 40 And they laughed him to scorn. But he having put them all out, take the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entered in where the damsel was lying. 41 And taking the damsel by the hand, he said to her: Talitha cumi, which is, being interpreted: Damsel (I say to thee) arise. 42 And immediately the damsel rose up, and walked: and she was twelve years old: and they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43 And he charged them strictly that no man should know it: and commanded that something should be given her to eat,Mark 5:35 to 43.
The passage about Lazarus reads: 38 Jesus = (Yeshua) therefore again groaning in himself, cometh to the sepulcher. Now it was a cave; and a stone was laid over it. 39 Jesus = (Yeshua) said: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said to him: Lord, by this time he stinks, for he is now of four days. 40 Jesus = (Yeshua) said to her: Did not I say to thee, that if thou believe, thou shall see the glory of God? 41 They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus = (Yeshua) lifting up his eyes said: Father, I give thee thanks that thou hast heard me. 42 And I knew that thou hear me always; but because of the people who stand about have I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 43 When he had said these things, he cried with a loud voice: Lazareth = (Lazarus) , come forth. 44 And presently he
that had been dead came forth, bound feet and hands with winding bands; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus = (Yeshua) said to them: Loose him, and let him go, John 11:38 to 43.
