Today let’s look at the personality of our Heavenly Father.
Ex. 15:26b, Jehovah Rapha – I am the God that healeth thee. Our Father’s character, personality, nature is that He is a HEALER! He is not the killer, destroyer, or thief in our lives (John 10:10). God, our Father, is our healer in spirit, soul and body!
God planned Jesus as the Lamb that was slain from the foundations of the world so we could be saved. God had a plan to redeem, to buy us back from sin, and to restore what Adam and Eve had in the garden.
When we talk about this we usually always talk about the blood of Jesus washing our sins away, and that is about it. Today we want to show you that you cannot separate the BLOOD (forgiveness), and the BODY (healing), they are part and parcel of the New Covenant. This can be seen from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Redemption was not just from sin, it was for our whole man (spirit, soul and body).
The BLOOD represents? FORGIVENESS!
The BODY represents? HEALING!
YOU CANNOT SEPARATE THEM – THEY ARE OF THE SAME PACKAGE – IF YOU HAVE ONE, YOU HAVE THE OTHER!
Ex.12:7-11 (blood & body) – The Passover. We always talk about the blood over the door posts (blood – forgiveness, passing over), but majority of believers forget about the other part of the Passover. They were instructed to eat the lamb (body – healing). Both of these components make the whole of the Passover, “IT IS THE LORD’S PASSOVER”.
The blood kept death from coming to their households, but what did eating the lamb do?
Ps. 105:37, He also brought them out with silver and gold, and there was none feeble among His tribes.
When the children of God left Egypt (Egypt represents sin), they were protected by the blood (forgiveness, deliverance from sin), and there was not one feeble (sick) among the tribes. Get this now – between 2 – 2 1/2 million people, and there was NOT ONE who was sick. From the oldest to the youngest baby, they were all healthy because they ate the lamb. The blood protected, delivered, and the body sent them away healthy!!!!
SHOUT IT OUT LOUD – The blood represents forgiveness, and the body represents healing!!
JUST AS FORGIVENESS IS YOUR COVENANT RIGHT – SO HEALING IS ALSO IN THE SAME COVENANT! You cannot separate them, if one is for you, the other is also for you.
