Leviticus 14:3 NKJV

And the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall examine him; and indeed, if the leprosy is healed in the leper,

Deuteronomy 28:27 NKJV

The Lord will strike you with the boils of Egypt, with tumors, with the scab, and with the itch, from which you cannot be healed.

In the Torah, Moses gave teaching to the Israelites that he received from God. In Leviticus 14, we see instructions for lepers who were healed. Leprosy was considered an incurable disease so the healing would be miraculous – an act of God. In Deuteronomy 28:27, we see a part of the curse of the law included incurable diseases. So way back in the time of the Israelites journeying to the Promised Land, we see the existence of incurable diseases as well as the possibility of a cure from God. When we hear the word “incurable” we must understand that is it is referring to what man can do. With God there is no such thing as an incurable disease. In Luke 4, Jesus pointed out that when Naaman the Syrian was healed, there were a lot of lepers in Israel who were not. The context indicated that He was saying they could have gotten a miracle just like Naaman did. When He sent out His disciples to minister He gave them power over all diseases – not just the curable ones. How many people today could get a miracle but they don’t even look for one. They simply accept man’s word as the last word. The earthly physician may as well be God to them. We must never park in the “incurable” parking space just because a doctor directs us to. We must look to God for the final word and reach out for miracles because He is the God who does the impossible and cures the incurable. Amen.
