More abourt Yesus and Christianity

Imagine living your entire life, under such conditions. Cannot talk to anyone. Cannot live with others. You have to go about yelling UNCLEAN. UNCLEAN…. 

This is a life of virtual death.

We have the description of the disease of leprosy, as well as the regulations connected with it, in Lev. 13; 14; Num 12:10, etc. There were reckoned six different circumstances under which it might develop itself, (1.) without any apparent cause (Lev 13:2); (2.) its reappearance (Lev 13:9); (3.) from an inflammation (Lev 13:18); (4.) on the head or chin (Lev 13:29); (5.) in white polished spots (Lev 13:38, Lev 13:39); (6.) at the back or in the front of the head (Lev 13:40).  Lepers were required to live outside the camp or city (Num 5:1; Num 12:10, etc.). This disease was regarded as an awful punishment from the Lord (Kg2 5:7; Ch2 26:20). (See MIRIAM; GEHAZI; UZZIAH.) This disease “begins with specks on the eyelids and on the palms, gradually spreading over the body, bleaching the hair white wherever they appear, crusting the affected parts with white scales, and causing terrible sores and swellings. From the skin the disease eats inward to the bones, rotting the whole body piecemeal.” “In Christ’s day no leper could live in a walled town, though he might in an open village. But wherever he was he was required to have his outer garment rent as a sign of deep grief, to go bareheaded, and to cover his beard with his mantle, as if in lamentation at his own virtual death. He had further to warn passers-by to keep away from him, by calling out, ‘Unclean! unclean!’ nor could he speak to any one, or receive or return a salutation, since in the East this involves an embrace.” 

That the disease was not contagious is evident from the regulations regarding it (Lev 13:12, Lev 13:13, Lev 13:36; Kg2 5:1). Leprosy was “the outward and visible sign of the innermost spiritual corruption; a meet emblem in its small beginnings, its gradual spread, its internal disfigurement, its dissolution little by little of the whole body, of that which corrupts, degrades, and defiles man’s inner nature, and renders him unmeet to enter the presence of a pure and holy God”.

Imagine living your entire life, under such conditions. Cannot talk to anyone. Cannot live with others. You have to go about yelling UNCLEAN. UNCLEAN…. This is a life of virtual death. No days when a prisoner is condemned to death, they say he is a dead man walking. This is the life of a Leper. The only people that he could be around were other Lepers.

Leprosy is a wicked disease that in Bible times was thought to be a punishment from God. It was seen as an outward sign of sin. It was seen as the sign of inward corruption. Now we know that is not the case, but we also know that sin does much of the same thing to us! Sin cripples us and makes us unclean.

Here is a list of rules regarding leprosy from the Middle Ages…
  • I forbid you ever to enter churches, or go into a market, or a mill, or a bakehouse , or into any assemblies of people.
  • I forbid you ever to wash your hands or even any of your belongings in springs or streams of water of any kind..
  • I forbid you ever henceforth to go out without your leper’s dress, that you may be recognized by others...
  • I forbid you to touch infants or young folks, whoseever they may be, or to give them or to others any of your possessions.
  • I forbid you henceforth to eat or drink in any company except that of lepers.. 
Every form of joy has been removed… but you know that sin is the same way to our hearts. Sin will remove all of the joy from life, and replacing it with a hunger for more sin. Leprosy deadens the nerves so that after a while there is no longer any feeling. Sin is the same. It kills off normal feelings. It sears the heart. Under the weight of sin the human hearts begins to die.
Often times when we have sin in our hearts we find ourselves acting very much like a leper. When we would enjoy times of fellowship with our brethren, our heart condemns us and cries out UNCLEAN! UNCLEAN! When we want to draw close to God the filth in our hearts cries out UNCLEAN! UNCLEAN! After staying in this state for a while our heart no longer feels even the condemnation. We are dying on the inside… and just like the Leper, parts of our selves begin to wither and die and fall off. When a leper whose nerves have died, they are often burned by fire and they never know it. Our hearts are the same way… after sin has taken hold and gotten a stronghold in ones life they begin to be able to push aside the Conviction of the Holy Ghost. You can then sit through a Sermon and never allow yourself to be affected by it. You can pretend every thing is ok on the outside but on the inside things are not right at all…

Now there are those that can see and recognize the hopelessness of this situation in their own lives. They are crying out to God, asking God to change something. They know that only Christ can fix this. Just like that Leper is a walking Dead man so is the man with sin in his heart.

It is very interesting that the same instruments used to cleanse a leper are the same as those that were used to make a person ceremoniously clean after dealing with a dead body?

Num 19:18 And a clean person shall take hyssop, and dip it in the water, and sprinkle it upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and upon the persons that were there, and upon him that touched a bone, or one slain, or one dead, or a grave:

Now we know that this is a foreshadowing of Christ. Remember when Hyssop was used in the book of Exodus?

Exo 12:22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
Exo 12:23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

We see that hyssop was about the sprinkling of blood. But for us to be clean it is not the blood of sheep and goats or of cattle. It is the sprinkling of the blood of Christ that is the remedy for us! King David knew something of this! In his prayer of repentance found in Psalms 51 we see the following…

Psa 51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
This blood and hyssop tells us of Christ’s sacrifice for our sin. He is our cleansing. Look at this instance of how Christ cleanses…
Mat 8:1 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
Mat 8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Mat 8:3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

There are four very telling things in this account of the Leper…

1. he recognized his condition.
2. He recognized that Christ could heal him.
3. He saw that Christ must be Lord.
4. He believed that Christ was able to free him….

Our lives must also bear these things. We must see and know that our sinfulness is death, and that there is no way to be free by our selves.

We must also come to understand that Christ alone can heal our sinful condition.

Then we must see that Christ alone must be our Lord. He is our only source of salvation and therefore must hold the reigns of our lives.

And then we must have faith. Christ healed this man based on his faith in Christ. We too must have faith if Christ is going to heal us of us sin.

Luk 17:12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
Luk 17:13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
Luk 17:14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
Luk 17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
Luk 17:16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
Luk 17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
Luk 17:18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
Luk 17:19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

Now these men were bound in their leprosy and were dying from this disease like many of us are from our sin. But when they cried out to Christ in their condition of death, Christ heard them and had mercy on them. He told them to go and show them selves to the Priest. Now when they turned to walk away they still were leprous. Yet they believed what Christ had told them! As they went one looked down and saw that they had already had been healed. When his healing came his first response was to fall and worship… His heart was filled with gratitude. We see then as Christ responds that the mans faith has made him whole…

There is so much to learn in this… Christ told them to go and show them selves to the Priests… they had to confess their state. But on their way in obedience they found their healing. Christ in His mercy had brought the healing and life to them that they were in such desperate need of….

So, do you find yourself ravaged by sin? Is your heart being consumed by this misery? Has your sin caused you to be a Spiritual outcast? Do you miss those times of fellowship? Christ is as much the answer for you as He was for these Lepers. He alone can heal you. Confess your sin and make Christ the Lord of your life and you will find that when you cry out from this place that He will have mercy and heal you and make you whole.
