Is Healing for All?October 19, 2018
To answer the question, "Is healing for all?" let's look in Exodus 15. Just after the Israelites passed through the Red Sea (which typifies our redemption), God gave His first promise to heal.He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
And this promise was for all. It was here that God gave the covenant of healing. God named the conditions, and the conditions were met. Revealed by and sealed by God in
His first covenant redemptive Name, Jehovah Rapha, He said, "...I am the Lord that healeth thee" (Ex. 15:26).
I'm glad that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8). If He wasn't, then we would have to say, "He was the Lord that healeth thee." But He is the Lord that healeth thee. This is a never-changing fact, because God's Word is forever settled in Heaven (Ps. 119:89).
To say that this privilege of health is not for God's people today is to change God's "I Am" to "I was." But God is the same God now that He was then (Mal. 3:6). I don't believe that He is the great God that was or the great God that's going to be. He is the great I AM - present tense!
