THE GOD THAT HEALETH

August 6, 2016

Once again I thought I might be skipping blogging for this week because I did not have a topic to share with you but I am learning even in blogging to wait on the Lord for direction and as usual He came through. I was watching a convention service on the internet last evening and the presider took time in the middle of the service to pray for those that were ill. His actions ministered to me physically and spiritually and the topic for today’s blogs was revealed to me, “The God that Healeth.”

Many of the Israelis that were in the wilderness did not have a relationship with God; however, He had chosen them as a nation of people on whom He would bestow His love, protection, blessings and concern. He desired to be their one and only King and as their King, God told them three days into their wilderness experience these words,   “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee” (Exodus 15:26) and later when He gave Moses the laws and statutes by which the people should live He reminded them of this promise with these words “And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee”(Exodus 23:25). In His kingly role He provided for His people with the understanding that for them to receive the benefits of citizenship, they were expected to shows allegiance, loyalty and obedience to their king.

For the New Testament church of which we are a member, we have the same promise provided for us by God when He sent His son Jesus to earth and allowed Him to die by crucifixion for our sins. As our earthly King Jesus has the same characteristics as His Father. God provided Israel with healing and Jesus, God manifested in the flesh does the same for us (Isaiah 9:6-7; 53:4-5).

Why does God do this? He does this because He is a wealthy King and owns everything and has every resource (including healing) at His disposal. Also God and His Son change not, they remain the same yesterday, today and forever (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8) and praise God, our healings are not limited for they are spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental (Psalms 103:3).

In closing, let me reminded you all healing comes from our King. Some healings come quickly while others may come over a period of time. Please don’t be deceived, when you go to the doctor, when you take medication it is still God that is healing you. So, if you are sick on today, I declare you can be healed and receive your citizen benefits from the God that healeth.

    Thank you for this lesson. I know that Jesus is a Healer. I have a miserable, painful sore throat. Yesterday before I got cough drops and cold medicine, I was told to put a little blessed oil on your tongue and believe God for your healing because the oil was blessed. I did get some relief after that for several hours but as night came, the sore throat came back viciously. I then thought that something was wrong with my faith. I felt so bad after using the cough drops and medicine that I failed the Lord. When you wrote that even though we use medicine God still heals. That was so encouraging. By the way, are you sick. I can’t believe you were watching the convention on television. I hope all will be well. Praying for you.

    • Yes. I am fine. Always remember that all healing comes from God. Drs. kill patients and they prescribe the wrong meds. When we go to them we better be praying for divine intervention.
