God Heals – Jesus Christ Heals
The great and awesome God Almighty is so glorious, so wonderful, and so powerful, He is beyond words.
He created the universe and wants every person on earth to spend eternity with Him in heaven, a place so glorious, words cannot express it.
We see His glory, wonder, and power in many ways and in many revelations in the Bible. He has revealed Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Eternal life is knowing Him and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent (John 17:3).
One of the revelations of His name is Jehovah Rapha . . . the Lord Who Heals.
Jesus Christ heals. Amen. Everything about Jesus Christ reveals the Father God Almighty.
Just as Jesus healed when He was a man, He heals today.
Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.
A glorious revelation of God – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – is found in Exodus 34.
In God’s awesome declaration and proclamation of Himself in Exodus 34, we see that He is, gloriously:
merciful and compassionate;
gracious and giving;
longsuffering and slow to anger;
abounding in goodness and lovingkindness;
abounding in truth and faithfulness;
And that He:
keeps mercy for thousands;
and forgives sin.
Amen! Glory to God forever!
He is truly an awesome and incredible God, the Lord God Almighty! The Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Glory!
A primary example of His mercy, graciousness, goodness, and more is of course the truth of salvation. He wants to save every person from sin and death and give them eternal, everlasting, divine life.
In a sense, salvation could be described as “healing” of the spirit and soul. In reality, it is much more than that: He gives us a completely new life! We are born again. All things are new. Glory to God!
In simplified terms, He gives us a new spirit, with redemption of our soul (the mind, will, and emotions) and so, so much more.
Salvation is so vast and deep, those who make it to heaven will spend eternity receiving, learning about, and exploring (and more!) God’s glorious salvation, divine life, and life everlasting.
Another primary example of His mercy, grace, goodness and more is healing of the body.
Just as he offers “healing” of our spirit and soul, God offers healing of our physical body.
Indeed, God offers complete healing and wholeness in spirit, soul, and body, which we call the full gospel.
When God came to earth as a man, Jesus Christ, we see clearly that He healed those in need. He healed, delivered, set free, raised the dead and more. And Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
We will see in this presentation that God has always offered healing to His people, to those who walk with, know, and obey Him.
Today, in this age of grace, when God’s love, mercy, and grace are in abundant supply, His healing is even more available that it was in previous ages.
Let’s look at how He declared and proclaimed Himself as recorded in Exodus 34:
“Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. 6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, ‘The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin . . .’” (Exodus 34:6,7).
A brief outline of God’s glorious proclamation; with additional translations of words included:
- Merciful – also translated “compassionate”
- Gracious – this Hebrew adjective depicts “a heartfelt response by someone who has something to give to one who has a need,” specifically one more powerful than another who has no
right to receive the gift.
- Longsuffering – also translated “slow to anger”
- Abounding in goodness – also “abundant in lovingkindness”
- Abounding in truth – also “abundant in faithfulness”
- Keeping mercy for thousands
- Forgiving iniquity (see pages 32-33)
- Forgiving transgression
- Forgiving sin
