Be Healed Now
Julio C. Rivas, CS
Biblical Scripture proclaims, “Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ….”
Radical theologian and healer M. B. Eddy adds, “’Now, ‘ cried the apostle, ‘is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation,’ – meaning, not that now men must prepare for a future-world salvation, or safety, but that now is the time in which to experience that salvation in spirit and in truth” (S&H p. 39:18-22).
All healings prove the empyrean and timeless magnificence of LOVE and of LOVE’s incorporeal man. Even difficulties that have endured for years are healed because we gain some cognizance of the now-ness of LOVE-TRUTH’s healing efficacy.
The dishonest tax collector Zaccheaus was transformed into an honest man in one encounter with Jesus Christ. The dead 12-year-old girl was raised back to life in one visit. Jesus Christ healed thousands instantly.
There are also millions who have been redeemed from extreme suffering by one moment of clear spiritual understanding.
We live in the now-ness of immortal LOVE-TRUTH’s liberating power. This makes immeasurable health, love and bounty attainable at all moments.
The dream of material existence keeps us unaware of SPIRIT’s preeminence. SPIRIT’s health-goodness-enforcing laws are unknown within the dream and it appears that we are trapped in material problems.
It is spiritual education which awakens us to LOVE-SPIRIT’s harmonious government and to man’s SPIRIT-obtained, supernal excellence. We possess a spiritual essence and it is exempt from illness, failure and lack.
Because all human ills are mortal dreams we can wake up from them via spiritual education and application.
Dreaming that we are trapped in a tank with a killer shark is no more dangerous or difficult to resolve than dreaming that we are in the tank with a goldfish. We wake up and we are free. Spiritual metaphysics teaches and proves that TRUTH-GOD awakens us from the worst dilemmas.
The Christ-spirit within everyone is awake to LOVE’s subsuming preeminence and to man’s spiritual magnificence. It knows LOVE’s preponderance and reliability. It shouts “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my strength, in whom I will trust....”
MIND is All-in-all. Every troubled place, person or circumstance can be redeemed by become conscious of MIND’s harmony-disseminating laws. MIND is omni-active goodness and this fact is ours to assert and apply.
Outstanding healer M. B. Eddy wrote, “Since God is All, there is no room for His unlikeness” (S&H 339: 7).
Our spiritual apprehension and certainty emits PRINCIPLE-LOVE’s eminence. This is why it defeats evil and its myriad material problems.
TRUTH rouses us to discern our incorporeal, spiritual essence. It reveals that our genuine essence emanates from SPIRIT and resembles its wholeness. This realization annuls material imperfection.
These ever-active, demonstrable, divine laws healed a man who was diagnosed with needing hip-replacement surgery. Our prayers allowed us to behold his SPIRIT-drawn, healthy substance and mobility. By focusing thought on the spiritual excellence that SPIRIT maintained as his inviolate divine reality, we woke up from the material dream of a damaged and deteriorated material hip.
A subsequent medical examination confirmed that his hip had healed. Tears streamed down his face when he found out.
He began a more physically active life before. Long, daily walks and weekly tennis became a part of his life.
Spiritual comprehension, alertness and conviction manifest dominance over difficulties. A MIND-aligned consciousness cancels the suffering dreams of matter-enslaved thinking.
Our PRINCIPLE-mandated, spiritual birthright is immutable health, wisdom and freedom. Our conscious alignment with omnipotent MIND makes this provable now.
