His Name Is...
The LORD That Heals - The Rock - The Wisdom of God - The Omniscience Of God
Healing Through Death
'They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but [only] to fill their places with the dead bodies of men whom I will slay in My anger and My fury, all for whose wickedness I have hidden My face from this city. 'Behold, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.
When doctors are able to identify a threat that causes harm to the body, they try to destroy the threat. Those procedures can be painful and have miserable side-effects, but are good to sustain life to some degree. God’s wisdom enables Him to deal with spiritual threats in ways that no one else is qualified. He too attacks threats; by purging sin. The Bible calls this purging “judgment.” God sees the threat of sin as infectious to His body of believers and diligently works to remove it by His judgments. Though His judgments are hard and painful, out of them comes health to His body, and with that, peace and truth through eternal life.
