Spiritual Physician

Spiritual Physician.


181. Spiritual Physician and the word of God, the world needs these two things if we are ever going to survive and develop: The prophet of God is like a divine physician, when he comes to the earth, bringing the healing word, that is like a healing medicine, to alleviate the real world and spiritual pains of a troubled, illness ridden, oppressed, corruption beleaguered mankind, as he (man) ever advances towards true civilization. Human society is like the body of an ailing patient that is bogged down in the mire of the troubles of the world and can get no relief. The physician (the manifestation of God), can see the physical and spiritual ailments encompassing the body of mankind and, like a truly discerning physician, can prescribe the medicine needed for the ailments assailing the body of mankind. This medicine is the Word and laws of God, which when accepted by the world of man can bring about the much needed changes that will allow mankind to progress spiritually and materially towards an ever advancing civilization, while allowing the patient, mankind, to obtain relief as the spiritual word begin to take effect relieving some of the stressful problems assailing the body of mankind. This is the way it has been with Gods manifestations in the past, ever bringing the healing medicine needed to restore mankind’s spiritual health, and this is the way it will be with Gods divine teachers in the future: the cross-5pix Christianity: Matthew 9:10 “And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.” Matthew 9:11 “And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?Matthew 9:12 “But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.” Matthew 9:13 “But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”  

the greatest name-12pixBAHA’I FAITH: “The Prophets of God should be regarded as physicians whose task is to foster the well-being of the world and its peoples, that, through the spirit of oneness, they may heal the sickness of a divided humanity. To none is given the right to question their words or disparage their conduct, for they are the only ones who can claim to have understood the patient and to have correctly diagnosed its ailments. No man, however acute his perception, can ever hope to reach the heights which the wisdom and understanding of the Divine Physician have attained. Little wonder, then, if the treatment prescribed by the physician in this day should not be found to be identical with that which he prescribed before. How could it be otherwise when the ills affecting the sufferer necessitate at every stage of his sickness a special remedy? In like manner, every time the Prophets of God have illumined the world with the resplendent radiance of the Day Star of Divine knowledge, they have invariably summoned its peoples to embrace the light of God through such means as best befitted the exigencies of the age in which they appeared. They were thus able to scatter the darkness of ignorance, and to shed upon the world the glory of their own knowledge. It is towards the inmost essence of these Prophets, therefore, that the eye of every man of discernment must be directed, inasmuch as their one and only purpose hath always been to guide the erring, and give peace to the afflicted.”
