THE NAMES OF GOD
"If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you." Exodus 15:26
Jehovah Rapha, The Lord Who Heals provided for His people even in the Old Testament before the death, burial and resurrection of His Son Jesus. We as believers are under a better covenant with better promises because of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Throughout the history of the world God has been the source for healing and deliverance for the children of Israel and even now for us, the Gentiles who have believed in the Lord. God raised up prophets and mighty men of faith and power such as Elijah and Elisha who healed the sick and even raised the dead.
For those who have given their hearts and lives to God, He is a faithful and caring Father always concerned for our well being and for our physical and emotional condition. As the children of Israel trusted Him, we too can trust in the fact that Jesus died and bled in seven specific areas to give us a complete and perfect healing!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, and heals all your diseases. Psalm 103:2,3
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
