Praise with Understanding-7

Psalms 47:7 “For God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.”
…From yesterday…
The disease was surrounded by terrifying, negative stigmas and patients were shunned as outcasts. They were only allowed to stay outside the city gate. They were considered impure and the only condition under which they could go to town or get in contact with a priest was when they were cleansed or healed.
This was the condition of these folks, but then Jesus told them to do the “impossible”, which is to go into the temple and show themselves to the priest as evidence that they had been “cleansed” or healed.
In the tradition of their days, when a leprous man was healed and showed himself to the priest, the priest checked him thoroughly by looking at his skin to make sure it was back to normal. Usually the effect of the leprosy was not considered, effects such as blindness of the eyes, extreme disfiguration of the face, missing fingers and toes. Once the skin was back to normal, it meant he was healed and as a result could not infect others.
Once the priest was satisfied that he was healed, he performed what was called a “levitical cleansing” and then pronounced him clean and was reabsorbed into the community. He was free to go to “church”, “restaurants” and market without fear of molestation.
These ten lepers obeyed Jesus, and as they were on their way they discovered they were cleansed or healed.
Now, here is the critical stage. The ten of them started out in faith; they believed God for a miracle and it was granted, just the same way most believers consult God when problems arise.
We raise our voices to God, the way the ten lepers did:
Luke 17:13 “And they lifted up [their] voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.”
We engage in serious prayers and suddenly things start to happen in our favour.
To be continued…
