Adonai Rapha
(God Our Healer)

6 But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
stand up and walk.”
-Acts 3:6-

After crossing the Red Sea, the people were without fresh water for three days and then they came to a spring. “Wonderful!” the people thought, but their elation soon turned to sorrow. They discovered the water wasn’t fit to drink so they gave the spring the name MARAH, meaning “bitter: in Hebrew.
Then Moses prayed, and God told him to cast a piece of wood into the water. “He threw it into the water, and the water became sweet” reads Exodus 15:25. Then God spoke. He said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the disease I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals
you” (Exodus 15:26).
Did you notice that phrase, “I am the LORD who heals you?” It says literally, I AM ADONAI RAPHA, meaning “God the One Who Heals you.” When he was with us Jesus healed the sick, the brokenhearted, the spiritual wrecks. He just spoke the word and it happened. “Yes,” you say, “but pastor He was God.” The disciples also believed that God answered prayer and healed the sick. Peter and John encountered a cripple at the temple
gate called Beautiful. Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk” (Acts 3:6).
One of the first New testament books written says, “The prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up” (James 5:15). Our God is still ADONAI RAPHA to those who look to Him.
Brothers and sisters in Christ, I would like to invite you to pray for those who are sick amongst us. Just like Peter, we pray “Silver and gold we do not have but wat we have we give to those who are not well. IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH, BE HEALED….Amen.
