and Miraculous Healing
But, What About God?
A Biblical Synopsis

Definition of the Problem
The most serious obstacle that prevents us from reaching the pristine
and true Divine Light is: Taking a
troublesome situation we want to solve into our own hands, or to give
it to somebody else on whom we have a "a lot of faith", to have it
resolved while leaving God out of the solution.
Does our technique of bypassing God gives good results? Obviously not!
Look at the state that our supposedly civilized
world has reached, physically and spiritually: A dump. A carefully
chrome plated dump, so that it appears very good and enticing while
drawing many others to the same misery.
We are seeing the product of a little more than a hundred years of supposed scientific,
psychological, and spiritual enlightenment.
An enlightenment which is
designed to entice man to attempt to supplant God.
For example, like a lamb, the world followed Sigmund Freud and ignored
Carl Jung. Freud used to justify any sexual maladjustment as the normal
outcome of some trauma. The message, subliminally transmitted, was: "This is the way they twisted you
(spiritually hurt you) and God allowed it; therefore God approves that
you live and act according to the results of that psychological wound."
Carl Jung acknowledged those wounds, but his work was centered in
healing them without encouraging or justifying its purulent
The difference of approach was basic. Sigmund Freud was an atheist (a non practicing Jew). Carl
Jung, on the other hand, had a very different spiritual philosophy.
During an interview of national reach in the U.S.A., he was asked: "Do you believe in God?" After
carefully thinking his answer, he said: "No, I do not believe in God... I know
To Carl Jung God was not a question of Faith, but a reality. Naturally,
the results of his studies and work in the field of Psychology were
truly illuminated, and had they been put into practice in the world, as
Freudianism was, we would not have fallen in the aberrant carnal orgy
in which the world is sunk today.
Let us look at another example - the spiritual enlightenment. This one
will illustrate how the spiritual 'advances'
and 'liberation' take us into
another aberrant orgy, one even more destructive than the carnal one. A
spiritual aberration which has as its fountainhead the putrid spirit of
satan: A challenge to God, the
rejection of His Universal Supremacy, and the denial of His Infinite
Though many examples and illustrations could be quoted, only one will
be used in this essay. Those who are called to see the light will see
it; those who are not, even if they are shown a great number of
illustrations, will not be able to discern it.
The specific example is about consultations with a medium in an effort
to reach the world of the dead in order to acquire information to solve
a problem. We will now refer to the First Book of Samuel, Chapter 28.
Sketch of the Situation:
1. Saul had expelled from the country
all the necromancers (spirit mediums) and the fortunetellers. (1Sam
2. The Philistines were ready to battle (and subdue) Israel (whose king
was Saul). Saul became afraid. (1Sam 28:4,5)
3. Saul asks God and God did not answer, either by dreams, by the Urim
or by the prophets. (1Sam 28:6)
4. Then, Saul, desperate, decided to go see a woman that practiced
necromancy to consult her as a medium. (1Sam 28:7)
Through this woman, Saul was able to contact Samuel (who had already
died). Samuel said to him (1Sam 28:16,19,20):
are you asking me, if the Lord has departed you and has become your
enemy?" "The Lord will deliver you and Israel into the hands of the
Philistines. Tomorrow you and your sons will be with me" (that is:
dead)," Saul fell to the ground for Samuel's words had filled him with
What can we elucidate from this Biblical quotation?
1. Fortune tellers and necromancy are
realities, even though many priests, because of fear or ignorance, tell
the faithful that such things are "superstitions." (1)
2. If God, Who Is all-powerful, does not want to communicate with one
seeking His help, is because He has a good reason; and
3. If by human stubbornness we insist in the use of metaphysical means
to obtain information, perhaps God allows this through what we call His
Passive Will, so that we may learn the lesson the hard way.
Corollaries of the Biblical
Saul and sons died anyhow. However, his
"curiosity" extended the agony of death from the moment that he
consulted that woman until he physically died.
The use of metaphysical resources to
try to bypass God's designs always carries a high price in suffering.
What we get from God (and with God) through prayers and the
interventions of the Holy Virgin, the angels and the saints, is always
free and harmonious.
When "consulting" with the invisible
world, what kind of guarantee do we have that the information received
is from a "good source"?
An adept to Metaphysics, as Occult Science is called to make it more
socially acceptable, knows very well that in the spiritual world there
are spirits of light and of darkness, as there are God's angels and
Let us suppose that a medium or a fortune teller informs you that you
are going to lose your life in an automobile accident, and let us
assume (a very safe assumption) that this is from a spirit of darkness
only to cause harm to you.
Think about this theoretical, though very common, case. Could
there be any positive result? Of course not. At best you will develop a
phobia about riding/driving an automobile or, in a worse case scenario,
you would act in a reckless manner trying to fulfill such "prophecy".
Why do things happen?
A common complaint is: Why does God
not hear me? This is the underlying reason/feeling which moves
us to attempt to bypass God.
God is not deaf. The deaf one is the individual who is asking a
response from God and cannot (refuses to) hear it, no matter how hard
God tries to establish the connection. If we truly try to listen, we
will hear Him. By refusing to listen to God, because what He is telling
us is not what we want to hear, we are in effect preventing God from
giving us everything that is good.
If God knows that Flight No. XYZ of Orbital Airlines is going to crash
and He tries by all means (without violating your free will) to stop
you from taking that flight (thus, disrupting your vacation
plans) are you going to accuse God of being deaf because He will not
hear your pleas seeking that you do not miss the flight? Unjust? Cruel?
You probably would, yet, He was making sure that you had many more
years of vacation ahead of you!
That is precisely God in action - yet we want to do it "our way" when
He possesses infinite wisdom and certainly know what is best for us.
If we are sick, God must have allowed it for some good reason (2). Are we going to bypass
God's designs and seek the healing by a "woman from my hometown with
It is very possible that such woman has supernatural powers and she
could produce a cure, since God, exercising His Passive Will, allows
it. Then the benefit that you were going to gain because of that
sickness, according to the Divine plan, was ruined while, at the same
time, you insulted God when you dared to bypass Him.
Harmonious cures are accomplished by combining our actions and those of
the Medical Science with
Divine Actions, and not
by resorting to supernatural powers to try to bypass God.
Supernatural power only means
beyond nature and NOT necessarily of Divine origin. satan has
supernatural powers but when they are used, they are destructive to all.
Now we should ask ourselves the following questions:
1. Do I know better than God what is
best for me?
2. Is it possible that God does not understand me?
3. So that woman or that Priest "has powers". More powers than God?
More than the Holy Virgin?
4. Is God a liar because "His word is not fulfilled in me?
Perhaps the truth is that we are trying to "adjust" God and all His
perfectly harmonious Universal Laws so they fit all the weaknesses of
our human condition.
We should always try to ascend to the Divine condition and not try to
bring God to the human condition. No matter how deep in sin we are;
when we want to ascend to the Divine condition, we have all of Heaven
(the Communion of the Saints) helping us. This is clearly explained in
the famous parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:20):
(The son who had sinned gravely and was now returning humbly, repented,
to his father's house.)
got on his way to his father's house. But when he was yet a long way
off, his father saw him and, moved with pity, ran to him and fell upon
his neck and kissed him."
Take note - The father saw the son in the distance and ran to him to welcome
him and to walk by his side
When we 'want to ascend' to the Divine condition, The Father runs to us
and takes us one step at a time back to His house. (3)
How can we justify living in the spiritual misery we live in?
However, if possessed with satanic arrogance, we want to bypass God, we
cannot blame Him for the resulting misery. It is our decision and He
does not violate our free will.
What will your decision be?
Take a look at the state Haiti, the 'World Center' for Voodoo, is in.
Take a look at the state Cuba, the 'World Center' for Santeria, is.
(1) What the priest is
truly telling the faithful, who have
tangible proofs of this reality, is that he does not know what he is
Despair - It is one step
at a time!
