"5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. 7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,[a] drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.|
9 “Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts— 10 no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep. 11 Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting. 13 If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. 15 Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town."
And so we see in the gospel of Matthew, Christ's lineage of initiation is documented. To his acolytes the Holy Christ grants permission to Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who are unclean, and banish demons. Recipients of the Holy Grail are to freely give of these abilities for the good of Mankind, and they are to live day by day upon the goodwill and charity of the community, to ensure persistent humility and devotion to the sacred.
Later, Paul removes the restrictions against gentiles placed by Christ upon the initiates, allowing the Gospel to touch the lives of all. This documentation refutes any claim by a Christian that healing magic is the work of Satan.
