CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINES
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 16: GOD'S LOVE WILL HEAL
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
David as the writer of this Psalms points
out the glorious acts the Lord has given humankind. His list of reasons to
praise God reveals God's: forgiveness, healing, redemption, loving-kindness,
tender mercies, providence, righteousness, justice, grace and patience.
When the word bless is used in
reference to the Lord it means to praise and adore Him. It also means that God
is the source of all blessings. For example "Praise God, from whom all
blessings flow." Soul as used in the first verse means the entire living
Thus the end of verse one reveals
that man's entirety, his whole soul, his being should bless the Lord. However,
verse two notes the reason for such praises to the Lord. Therefore we should
praise the Lord because of the benefits received. "Forget not," means
not that things have slipped our memory. It means in this passage that when we
fail to thank God it is as bad as forgetting it altogether.
103:3. "Who forgiveth all thine
iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases:"
Who is the most important word in
this passage? Other passages of scripture teach that forgiveness for sin is
offered on certain conditions. Also many passages of scripture note that
disease is healed only when the Lord's will calls for it. Meanwhile David in
this Psalms calls our attention to God. Thus when the favors and blessing of
God are bestowed upon man, the Lord should receive all the credit and praise
Exodus 34:7. The Ten Commandments written again
"Keeping mercy for thousands,
forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear
the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon
the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation."
Sin stands in the way of you and God.
Thus in order to reach God and His blessings you must remove sin. In this
passage from the Book of Exodus we see God again placing the Ten Commandants
with Moses. In the preceding chapter (33:18) Moses asked God to show me thy
glory. God responds. "What Is God's Glory?"
God did not give Moses a vision of
his power and majesty. However, God revealed his glory in Love. Thus, His
mercy, grace, longsuffering, goodness, truth, forgiveness and justice.
As we take a closer look at sin
passed down from generation to generation, we see the following. Children still
suffer for the sins of their parents. Child abuse, alcoholism is often passed
down. Also, the sins of greed and selfishness can be passed on. It is also
noted that sin is not limited to individual family members. Finally we note that
God forgives when man complies with the terms of forgiveness.
Jeremiah 30:17. Restoration will follow punishment.
"For I will restore health unto
thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds saith the Lord; because they called
thee an outcast, saying, This is
Verses 12, 13 and 17 use certain
medical language that notes the terminal nature of sin. What also is revealed
is that there was no human power to cure or heal the nation from their sins.
The disease of idol worship was so
deep-seated that the nation needed to have its national dignity wounded by the
captivity in a foreign land. The Lord promised to heal the wounds which would be
accomplished by a release from captivity and a return to their home land.
30:7. "He made known his ways
unto Moses, his acts unto the children of
The law was first given to Moses and
the people of
30:12. "As far as the east is
from the west, so far hath he removed our transgression for us."
When God forgives he also forgets.
When we forgive, we must do the same. East and West can never meet. This is a
symbolic portrait of God's forgiveness.
We must always focus on the
compassion and loving concern God has for us. Thus, we should not dwell on God
as the Judge and Law giver. When God evaluates and examines our lives he takes
all things into consideration. However, our weaknesses should never be used to
