Jehovah Rapha – My Healer

God does the forgiveness through Jesus who became sin for us, then through Jesus, we can forgive.

In Jeremiah 30:17, God says “I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord.” This Scripture says that God wants us healthy and joyful. This is confirmed in Psalm 103:2-3: “Bless the Lord O’ my soul, and forget not all His benefits who forgives all your iniquities (sins), who heals all your diseases.”

He is the God who wants to set you free from the burden of your sins and offenses. God does the forgiveness through Jesus who became sin, for us, then through Jesus, we can forgive.

In Luke 5, they bring a paralysis man to Jesus but because they could find no room to come inside, they opened the rooftop and let him down before Jesus.

Luke 5:29 says: “When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the man, your sins are forgiven you.” The Scribes and Pharisees responded in verse 22 by saying “Who can forgive sins but God alone and that’s true.

Yet in John 1:28 it says: “When John the Baptist Jesus coming toward min he said: “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”

Jesus is the only one who can take away the wrongdoing, the sin, and the guilt of the world. Jesus as the Son of God can forgive sin because He became sin for us on the Cross of Calvary (2 Corinthians 5:21).

In Luke 5:23 Jesus responds to the Scribes by saying: “Which is easier to say, your sins are forgiven you, or to say rise up and walk?”

Psalm 30 is a healing Scripture verse 3 that says: “Lord you have brought my soul up from Sheol. You have kept me alive, that I should not go down into the pit.

This is the way I learned it. If our soul is healed and we are brought up from the grave, then our body and mind have to follow.

In Psalm 30, David prays to God:

I will extol you, Lord, for you have raised me up, and have not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2, Lord my God, I cried to you, and you healed me. 3, Lord you have brought up my soul from Sheol. You have kept me alive, that I should not go down in the pit. 4, Sing praise to the !ord, you holy ones of His. Give thanks to His holy name. 5, For His anger is but for a moment. He favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may stay for the night, but joy comes in the morning. 6, As for me. I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” 7, You Lord, when you favored me, made my mountain stand strong; but when you hid your face, I was troubled. I cried to you, 8, Lord, I made supplication to the Lord: 9, “What profit is there in my destruction, if I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise you? Shall it declare your truth? 10, Hear, Lord have mercy on me. Lord, be my helper.” 11, You have turned my mourning into dancing, you have removed my sack clothe, and clothed me with gladness, 12, to the end that my heart may sing praise to you, and not be silent. Lord my God, I will give thank to you forever!

Psalm 30

The name Rapha in Hebrew means to heal, cure, restore, or to make whole.

During times of sickness, we may call upon God using Him name that is tied to healing, “Jehovah Rapha.”
