for all my friends and benefactors, for those who wish me all the good
and for all who took part in my seminars and prayer meetings in many
places around the world. «

JESUS MAKES/SETS FREE FOR LIFE
Doctors, medicaments and hospitals are here to heal physical and mental
diseases. And we also need medicaments when our spirit is sick – that is
when we are angry, jealous, lazy, vain, arrogant, when we despise
others, and likewise.
Jesus came to liberate and to heal us. When He healed physical and
mental diseases He did it out of His compassion. It was a visible sign
that God's kingdom came. But each time He told people not to talk about
it. But he reacted on the contrary when spiritual healing would take
place, e.g. when He exorcised, He said: » Go back home and tell what
God did for you! « (Lk 8, 39).
If He had only healed physical and mental diseases, there would have
remained a sin and evil in the people, and Jesus would not have saved
Jesus did not come to repair the world, but to create a new one. By His
Resurrection the new world has been created on this world already. This
world will disintegrate – but then a new sky and a new earth will come.
With His Resurrection a new creation began. Holy Spirit works in us.
All sufferings and all evil originate from the sin. It is normal that
after we set free of evil, our body and our mind will become healthy.
The cause of all diseases lay in the sphere of spirit. Ever since we
opposed to God, since Adam and Eve rose against God, we have been
separated from Him. The life is a river containing days and time. This
river separated from its own spring, it does not flow any more, and it
has dried up.
And our life is the same.. A human being who is not a friend of God,
does not live any more, he/she only vegetates; only his/her body is
A spirit is dead, but yet, the death of the spirit is more dangerous
then the death of the body. Jesus has came to defeat the death of the
spirit, and to return the life to us.
