Praise the Healer Not the Disease
So many of God’s people have got this backwards. Instead of lifting up the name of their Healer, Yeshua, they exalt the name of the sickness or disease that the enemy, satan is using to destroy them with. Philippians 2:9-11 clearly says, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name; that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; and [that] every tongue should confess the Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
The name of Jesus is higher than cancer, diabetes, lyme’s disease, hiv and all other disease, and yet God’s people continue to declare how powerful these wicked weapons of spiritual warfare are and deny the highest power of the greatest One, Jesus the Messiah.
Listening in on some conversations of Christians one would surmise that Jesus is the lesser power, powerless, even worse, careless towards His followers. When in reality He is Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals disease.
If God’s people would truly humble themselves, bow before their Creator they would come into the presence of His greatness and know firsthand the wonder of His name and the power behind His name.
All creation, including that which is in a fallen state, must bow before Jesus Christ. Sickness and disease are microscopic organisms that get into the human body and make people ill, but when put in their rightful place they too bow at the mention of His name, and obey His command, “Leave them at once!”.
So what name are you going to glorify? Cancer? Are you going to magnify Lyme’s disease? Will you continue to praise the mighty power of Diabetes in your life? Or will you humble yourself, bow your knee and declare that Jesus is Lord? And do as your Lord Jesus tells you to do.
What does He tell us to do? He tells us to remember all of His benefits, who pardons all iniquities, heals all disease, redeems our lives from destruction, crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies, satisfies our mouths with good things, and renews our youth like the eagles (Ps. 103:1-5).
It is time for God’s people to glorify the name of Jehovah Rapha, Who heals all disease, gives sight to the blind, opens up deaf ears, strengthens the weak, causes the paralytics to walk, releases those afflicted with demons. Glorify the name that is above all names, Jesus.
