“When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest;” Leviticus 13:9
If the plague of leprosy was in a man today, it would spread like wild fire through the church and through the world infecting and killing untold millions because the moment someone told them they were a leper, a leper according to God’s Word mind you, they would be quickly judged as being judgmental.
“3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common Salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the Saints.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 1:3-4
Contending for the faith that has been given us who believe; that mustard seed of faith the Lord placed in our hearts the moment we willed to believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, is not judging the leper.
That leper is being used to kill, steal and destroy what the Lord has given those who believe. They deny the Lord Jesus Christ and what He has done on Calvary’s Cross to break the power of sin and turn the Grace of God which was given to expel sin into a license to sin.
“I will therefore put you in remembrance, though you once knew this, how that the Lord, having Saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.” Jude 1:5
The Lord Jesus Christ broke the power of sin for whosoever will believe upon Him as their Lord and Savior. He has brought us out of the land of Egypt and has allowed the destruction of many who afterward believed not. Those who God has sent a strong delusion that they should believe a lie because they received not the love of the Truth have been and are being destroyed as we speak.
“10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be Saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
There are lepers abounding in this world today being called God’s anointed and we better not touch. They are false apostles and deceitful workers who transform themselves into the apostles of Christ but are in reality Satan’s ministers (2 Cor. 11:13-15).
Contend for the faith that has been given you. God wants to heal the lepers…but they must know Who He is and what He has done. They must hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The Truth according to the Word of God must not be compromised but delivered with love to the leper that they may be healed.
Jesus Christ and Him crucified, be determined to know nothing else among you.
