God is the Healer!
Today, as we read through our yearly Bible Reading, I am again struck with this truth:
The priests were the diagnosing physicians, God is the Healer!
New International Version (NIV)
13 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, 2 “When anyone has a swelling or a rash or a shiny spot on their skin that may be a defiling skin disease,[a] they must be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons[b] who is a priest. 3 The priest is to examine …
Any honest doctor, will tell you that though they diagnose, medicate, and perform medical practices, that it is God who heals.
Mark 15: 25 It was nine in the morning when they crucified him.
Today, as I read our passages, I saw Jesus being crucified, and I saw our healing! (Mark 15, Lev 12, 13 are today’s readings!)
And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.
:9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
Even as Jesus was lifted up so Moses lifted up the bronze serpent, and anyone that looked upon it, was healed.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
So Jesus died, not only for our sin, but also for our sickness, that we might find healing, through faith in Him.
Ias 53:4 Surely He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and with His stripes we are healed.
Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and forever, and He is still the Great Physician, the Healer, who longs to heal you, today. Look to Him for your healing….
‘Father God, creator, my God. I need you, to heal me. I believe that Jesus bore my sickness, and carried my pain. I look now to You, to what Jesus did for me upon the cross, and I receive Your healing, now, knowing that I am heard, and answered, for I come in Your great name Lord Jesus, Amen!”
