CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINES
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 17: THE HEALING WORLD OF
God Psalms 107:20
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
This Psalms begin the fifth Book of Psalms.
They (Psalms) praise God's works; record the blessings of righteous living,
thank God for deliverance and praise God for his wonderful Word. This Psalms
also reminds us that the most perfect sacrifice we can offer God is a faithful
and obedient life.
Words of thanks should constantly be
on the lips of those God has saved. The author of this Psalms writes to
celebrate the Jews return from exile in
107:1. "O give thanks unto the
Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever."
There are four different types of people in distress noted here:
1. Those that Wander 107:3-7
2. Prisoners' 107:10-16
3. The sick 107:17-20
4. The Storm Tossed 107:23-30
As God rescues them there is no
calamity that will prevent God from helping us.
107:2. "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the
In Psalms 103 we saw when we should
give thanks to the Lord for all He has done for us. Thus God wants us to proclaim to all that He is
great and His mercy and blessings are everlasting. However,
this verse is not a mandate or order from God to witness. But this verse
reveals that those who live for God will not be able to keep
the glory of God to themselves. (See Acts 1:8 and 2
107:17. Fools because of their
transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted."
This verse reveals that men may bring afflictions and other evil conditions on themselves.
Therefore one who works transgression
and iniquity is a fool.
Isaiah 65:6-7. The New Heaven and The New Earth.
"Behold, it is written before
me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom."
Judgment is the Lord's, because the
Lord is a just God. Thus, in this passage God promises to repay the people for their sins.
107:19. "Then they cry unto the
Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses."
Even though some people only call on
God when they are in trouble God does not ignore them. Thus God is merciful and just and when a soul
is in trouble and makes a sincere appeal to God he is never
107:20. "He sent his word, and
healed them, and deliver them from destruction."
There is a need for spiritual healing and physical healing. However, the word of God heals all needs.
2 Kings 20:5 and 4, 6. Hezekiah's healing.
"Turn again and tell Hezekiah
the captain of my people, Thus said the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy
tears: behold, I will heal thee: On the third day thou shalt
go up unto the house of the Lord."
Over a 1000 year period Hezekiah had
been the only faithful king in
Matthew 8:8 & 5-9. A Roman soldier demonstrates faith.
8:7. "And Jesus saith unto him,
I will come and heal him."
Jesus had not been requested to come
to the home of the centurion. He was able to give absent treatment as effectively as otherwise.
However, the proposal to come to the centurion’s home was an
expression of complete faith.
In verse 8 we see why the centurion
had not asked Jesus to come to his home. He did not feel worthy of such a guest. He therefore was to
be satisfied with absent treatment and expressed this belief.
107:43. "Whoso is wise, and will
observe these things, even they shall understand the loving- kindness of the Lord."
A wise man observes the goodness of
God. It is written and observed that those that have suffered greatly mature under hardships.
Hence those who have not suffered may not appreciate God as
much. Those who have seen God work during times of distress have a deep insight
into God's loving-kindness. Thus if you have experienced great
trails, you have the potential for great praise.
