Getting To Know God
Jehovah Rapha - The All-Knowing Healer
The LORD That Heals - The Rock - The Wisdom Of God - The Omniscience Of God
“I taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by their arms; but they did not know that I healed them. I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love, and I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped [and] fed them.”
The prophet Hosea spoke of the extent of God’s wisdom to enable the wicked people of Ephraim to repentance and spiritual restoration: teaching them to walk spiritually, with gentleness and love, by removing the burdens of idolatry and other sin. God knows how to deal with the wicked, to sway their hearts into repentance, thereby enabling them to receive the benefits of His salvation. Since we all, like sheep have gone astray, just like the people of Ephraim, then we all require the unique, gentle, loving, and liberating healing that only God can provide. That healing comes exclusively through faith in Jesus – turning from sin, to Him!
