"Jehovah-Rapha — The Lord Our Healer!
Multitudes of books have been written on what is variously called faith healing, spiritual healing, divine healing, healing prayer, healing ministry (and other similar expressions). And genuine healing testimonies abound of God’s supernatural power to make sick and infirm bodies well.
But the foundation for this truth lies not so much in men’s experience — as wonderful as that may be — but in the Scriptures, the Word of God
God identified Himself to Israel in a variety of names and ways. He revealed Himself to His people as “Jehovah-Rapha” — “the Lord who heals you.”Healing is not just something that God “does.” No, more than that, healing is part of God’s very nature — “I AM the Lord who heals you.” God was, is, and will continue to be a Healer.
• God's spiritual healing power extends to ALL our diseases and infirmities.
The greatest of the Lord’s “benefits” is that He forgives all our sins! But the Psalmist charges us not to forget another of the Lord's benefits — that is, He “heals all our diseases.”ALL our diseases! None are too hard for Him. God heals them all. No illnesses are excluded from this great “benefit.” Whatever disease you or a loved one may have, it falls under God’s promise to “heal all your diseases.”
• God responds to prayer for healing.
The principle here is simple — faithful Abraham prayed, and God healed. Moses prayed for leprous Miriam, and God healed her.
King David understood the power of prayer for healing the sick — “O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me” (Psalm 30:2).
The ongoing principle seen here and elsewhere in the Bible, is the power of a believer’s prayer. God honors and answers prayers for healing. Abraham, Moses, and David believed in God’s healing power and His willingness to heal, and they prayed for it. And God was faithful to answer!
• BELIEVE the Lord for divine healing. Have FAITH in His power and willingness to heal you.
A principle of great importance is seen in these verses — that is, “thy faith hath made thee whole ... according to your faith be it unto you.” Hebrews 11:6 tells us that “without faith it is impossible to please God.” But conversely, we are told, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer” (Matthew 21:22). God expects us, in asking for healing as well as in other prayers, to believe Him, to believe His word, to “have faith in God” (Mark 11:22). Divine healing is quite appropriately called "faith healing"!
• Healing comes through faith in Jesus, not faith in faith.
Healing comes “by faith in” someone — JESUS! Over the years I have heard sincere Christians misdirect their faith. Some have fallen into the error of having “faith in faith.” No! Our faith is in a Person, Jesus, who heals. Others have properly searched the Scriptures concerning healing, but have unfortunately been content to use them merely as a “formula” for healing, rather than as a revelation of the Healer Himself. "Faith healing" is not primarily believing the doctrine of healing (true as that doctrine is), but believing in the Healer, the Person — that is, in Jesus Christ. Peter understood the proper object of our faith — Jesus!"
