Today, healing as a minister of the Gospel is compared with service through careers as an actor and as a psychoanalyst.  Among Christian believers, exorcism to remove unclean spirits and healing are different from miracles (we say, sacred events).  The gift of healing has been given to the church as a body, and we say, the church has the power of healing.  Yet, the gift of healing is not given to every member of the church, and appears only through the work of those selected by the Holy Spirit.  Actors, comedians, dancers, singers, and other entertainers are often effective at providing catharsis that enables a peculiar form of purification, release of unexpressed emotions, and rebalance among aspects of ones spirit that are in conflict.  This form of benefit and healing also is found among those who prophesy using music ministry as the boy David did for King Saul.  The timely sharing of otherwise hidden truth can dispel depression, despair, inner turmoil, and self-destructive impulses.  Those who propose to heal the mind using psychoanalysis and other closed systems of meaning and value generally rely upon secular knowledge, medical procedures that may include use of drugs and brain surgery, as well as academic studies and structures.  As with entertainers, their vocation does not put forward the operations of faith through Jesus Christ.  Because the process of being in correct relationship with GOD requires acknowledging and exalting the will of GOD above ones own desires and intent, there must be obedience to divine law, and conformance to the things proclaimed and revealed through Jesus Christ.  The successful accomplishment of a private agenda emphasizing things carnal, material and social, or divine endorsement of ambitions and lusts that promote the flesh and the world will always be questionable, and unpredictable.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

I’m not sure whether to train as an actor or as a psychoanalyst (Jungian): How do I discern God’s will?

Update: Cognito: As you aren’t connected to God, your thoughts on God are irrelevant to me. However, I take what you say about other actors on board. Working with “people like that” wouldn’t bother or upset me in the least.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.  And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.  And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.  For to one  is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:  But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body:  so also is Christ.  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.  For the body is not one member, but many.  (1st Corinthians 12:  4-14, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Faith and The Cross? (03/30/2016); Humility and The Cross? (03/15/2016); …Ears That Hear Not? (01/18/2016); The Correct Prescription? (11/19/2015); Why Did Jesus Heal? (02/03/2015); Healing is By Relationship? (09/27/2014); Certainty by Faith or by Tradition? (06/19/2014); “Prayer Death”? (02/21/2014); The 2nd Prayer Death (02/22/2014)

 

“?”, consider what it means to be a healer from GOD.  For mature Christian believers a person’s focus and training to do GOD’s will begins with their commitment to completely and correctly embrace Jesus Christ.  The operations of sin may dominate awareness and self-will in created beings and living creatures.  Thus, the most necessary provisions from GOD for health of our body, mind and spirit are the Gospel of Jesus Christ, becoming “born again” through water baptism (i.e., death and burial of ones inborn spirit, rebirth from divine DNA), receiving the imparted, indwelling Spirit from the makeup of GOD, and “growing up again” through continuous service that reveals the “active presence” of divinity, demonstrates the sacred operations carried out by Deity, fulfills the promises of GOD, and realizes eternal purpose.  Much of the darkness, disease, and sickness within our lives are the visible outcomes forced by conflicts among our values, exaggerated pride, the practice of deceit and lying, and unseen sin that opposes the continued existence of divine law, the Law Giver, and the Creation that relies upon sacred law for divine order.  With this in view, careers in the performing arts as an actor (we also say, entertainer, hypocrite, story-teller), and within those professions that attempt to examine, monitor and shape patterns of behavior, emotion, and socialization all are “distractions”, diversions, and obstacles to the proper work of the living.  The benefits from secular knowledge, practices, and tools are always discrete, limited, and temporary.  Thus, backsliding, further deterioration, relapses, and regression may appear.   There are no counterfeits or substitutes that are more fruitful for healthy living upon the earth than permanent change and communion through forbearance, forgiveness, unselfish giving, humility, intercession with GOD on behalf of others, praise, prayer, repentance, acquiring and applying sacred knowledge, suffering, and worship.  Consider again the Scriptures:

(1.)  2nd Chronicles 7:  14, King James Version (KJV):  14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

(2.)  Psalms 51:  6-13, KJV:  6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts:  and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.  7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean:  wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.  8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.  9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.  10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.  11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.  12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.  13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  2nd Timothy 1:  7-10, KJV:  7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner:  but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;  9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,  10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
