Jesus is LITERALLY saying that if there is really a true forgiveness of someone injuring you, any symptoms in your body MUST be healed in order to make the forgiveness real and to prove that there has truly been a forgiveness. If you retain the symptoms but claim the other person is pardoned, it is NOT a full forgiveness. It indicates you do not FULLY believe that it is forgiven. Forgiveness might well be happening in the mind, but it MUST reflect in the body also! Forgiveness without a miracle is incomplete! Forgiveness that keeps symptoms and retains real sickness is NOT complete forgiveness!!!!!
"Yet no one can forgive a sin that he believes is real."
"To witness sin and yet forgive it is a paradox that reason cannot see."
"And by giving it, you grant your brother mercy but retain the proof he is not really innocent."
"The sick remain accusers."
"For no one in whom true forgiveness rests can suffer. "
"He holds not the proof of sin before his brother's eyes."
"Forgiveness cannot be for one and not the other. Who forgives is healed."
"And in his healing lies the proof that he has truly pardoned, and retains no trace of condemnation that he still would hold against himself or any living thing."
"Forgiveness is not real unless it brings a healing to your brother and yourself. "
"You must attest his sins have no effect on you to demonstrate they are not real. How else could he be guiltless?"
"And how could his innocence be justified unless his sins have no effect to warrant guilt?"
Jesus apparently isn't just asking us to achieve forgiveness in our minds, but to also demonstrate the truth by removing all sickness from the body.
"A broken body shows the mind has not been healed. A miracle of healing proves that separation is without effect. What you would prove to him you will believe. The power of witness comes from your belief. And everything you say or do or think but testifies to what you teach to him. Your body can be means to teach that it has never suffered pain because of him. And in its healing can it offer him mute testimony of his innocence. It is this testimony that can speak with power greater than a thousand tongues. For here is his forgiveness proved to him."
If we're doing forgiveness processes that don't result in FULL forgiveness, and which don't produce a miraculous undoing of ALL SYMPTOMS and side effects, then you have NOT fully achieved forgiveness!!!!!!!!! You can't just be in a state of "still being sick" and believing that you're done forgiving. We need to take it all the way! 100% undoing!!!!!!
