Manifested Name – Part Six

There should be no doubt in any believer’s mind; HEALING BELONGS TO EVERY BELIEVER!

Psalm 103Psalm 107Proverbs 4Isiah 533 John, and myriad other Scriptures state it so plainly.  Healing is as well established in covenant as the new birth, as firmly settled as eternal life, and as real as created itself.  It IS the will of God for ALL His people to live in health in this earth in this present time.  That, my friend, is an established truth in God’s Word, and it will never change.  Regardless of what certain theologians, denominations, and religious groups and individuals have declared, the truth of healing is NOT diminished one iota in the Scriptures.  HEALING BELONGS TO YOU, CHILD OF GOD!

It was clearly stated and demonstrated throughout the Old Covenant.  God’s will to heal and desire for His people to be whole is clearly demonstrated, and never more clearly than when the children of Israel made their exodus out of Egypt under the leadership of Moses after the Passover.  In that case, the Scriptures stated it so plainly.  The morning following the Passover, all of the people of Israel from the eldest to the youngest, those who were sick, those who had been beaten, injured or maimed by the Egyptians who evil entreated them, and those who were simply suffering from the result of an accident were completely healed.  As the Scriptures declare, “there was not one infirm person among them.”  They were totally healed.  And even after their departure, when the rebelled against the Lord in the wilderness with the golden calf, and serpents came among them to envenomate them with their bites, when they looked on the brass serpent on the pole, they were totally healed, made will, and lived.  And we can add the wonderful news to that of Malachi 3:6.  There the Lord says, “I am the Lord; I change not.”

And in the New Testament we see that will even more clearly displayed in even broader measure.  Mark 16:15-20 sets the stage, and John 14:12-14 drops that anchor firmly in the middle of God’s unchanging will for healing.  What is so saddening to me is that there are still Christians who are so blinded as to believe that sickness or disease is a tool God used to teach His people.  Oh, my dear friend, that is simply NOT true.  Jesus is our Healer.  Jesus, the Word made flesh,” was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and according to 1 Peter 2:24, by His stripes you “WERE” healed.  It is not a promise to be given, but an established truth every believer should full accept, and then rejoice in it.  Jesus is not GOING TO BE our Healer; HE IS OUR HEALER!

Manifested Name – Part Five

Psalm 119:165 sets the standard; those who love God’s law have a peace that cannot be offended.

The “Manifested Name” we examine today is Jehovah Shalom; or as we would say today, the Lord my Peace.  In the Hebrew language, the word “shalom” is a powerful word that means perfect health, prosperity, and complete wholeness.  It also means “nothing missing; nothing broken.”  Now think for a moment.  What kind of a life does one live when there is “nothing missing, and nothing broken?”  What a marvelous use of descriptive terms to give a clear image of what “shalom,” the God-kind of peace, entails.  Think of that!  NOTHING MISSINGNOTHING BROKEN!

And yet that is precisely what that term means.  Then in the New Testament, the word peace is a Greek word that means “prosperity, quietness, to be set at one again.”  There is really no doubt about it.  Even in the New Testament, the word peace still means “NOTHING MISSINGNOTHING BROKEN.”  Once again I cannot help but stand in awe at the great, all-encompassing power and dynamic of the word “PEACE” as it is used in covenant relationship with our God.  Think of it!  As a child of God, heir of God, joint-heir of Christ, seed of Abraham, and heir according to the promise, you and I should be living daily completely resting in our Lord.  He has broken down the middle wall of partition.  He has made a new and living way for us to come to the Father by His Own blood.  He has reconciled us to Father through Himself and we have already been fully endued with the peace of God that passes understanding.  And it surely does pass understanding.

It was a promise of the Father.  Once Holy Spirit came in His fullness on the day of Pentecost after the resurrection of Jesus, it became a fixed covenant reality.  Now it is no longer a promise, but an established fact, already given.  All the covenant child of God needs to do is find it in the Word of God, build his/her faith on what the Word says, and then by faith accept the work Jesus has already completed.  And once accepted, we must hold fast to our confidence.  Yes, we may have to fight to keep it, for our enemy, Satan, does indeed come to steal, kill, and destroy.  Remember, Jacob had to wrestle to “get” a blessing.  But for you and me, now in this present covenant, we don’t need to wrestle to get the blessing of peace, but we will surely have to fight to keep it.  Just remember, God has said He will keep in perfect peace that person whose mind is stayed on Him.  And if God said it, that settles it.  Shalom, my friend!
