YOUR FAITH WILL HEAL YOU — Prophet Tony Mathias

Healing can come to us in various ways – through medicine, surgery, therapy, home remedies, fasting, and so on.

Every good and perfect gift comes from the hand of our Father in heaven.

Whenever healing comes, we need to give God praise for He is God of supernatural as well as natural healing.

In the New Testament, we read of how Jesus spoke to his disciples about their faith, using words such as “your faith, his faith, or their faith.” He spoke of “little and great faith.”

Jesus said to the Canaanite woman who asked him to heal her tormented daughter: “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted. Her daughter was healed from that very hour.” Matthew 15: 21-28

My faith is God’s gift to me. I am responsible for how I take care of it.

We read in the Bible that “faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrew 11: 1.

If we can see it, we cannot exercise faith for it because faith operates in the realm of things unseen.

You receive healing by faith BEFORE, not AFTER you see or feel changes taking place in your body.

Jesus says, “Have faith in God . . . I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11: 22-24

The faith that makes things happen comes to us as we hear or read the promises of God Romans 10: 17.

As you meditate on the promises of healing and continue to feed your faith, your faith will grow and the miracle of healing will come.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – March 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

There have been things in your life difficult for you to understand, but because of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life, the complexities of those things have been unveiled to you.

The Holy Spirit is your Counsellor, your resident boss. You can always trust Him for insightful knowledge which gives skill, and understanding. One of His many blessings is insight, a sudden understanding and perception of a situation, or mystery.

Therefore, we are advised not to lean unto your own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge Him and He will direct our path.

The Father of Glory grants us a spirit of wisdom and revelation, insight into mysteries and secrets in the deep and intimate knowledge of Him

He also says – “I give you the power to decree what I declare and it shall come to pass.”

For we are His flock, the sheep of His pasture and His sheep ought to hear His voice.

When we decree what He has declared it shall be established and the light shall shine upon your path.

As we enter intimacy with Him we receive direction. What we see and hear from Him will manifest when we speak it forth.

In this special year 2020, the year of the mouth there is going to be a manifestation of decrees so that the Kingdom of God progresses and advances.

Would you be a part of it? You need to soak in scriptures and intimacy with God giving instant obedience.

As you call upon Him, He will answer you and show you great and mighty things you know not.

Be Blessed and Highly Favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – February 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

The Lord says: I Am the Lord who brought you out of the House of Bondage and into the Kingdom of My Dear Son in Whom you shine as lights in this dark world.

Open wide your mouth and I will feed and fill you, with blessings that make rich and add no sorrow.”

“And I the Lord will fill you with wisdom the principal thing in all affairs of life if you but ask.

And you will prophesy My Word with wisdom and declare My goodness in the land of the living.

“My beloved ones, I give you authority over all the power of the evil one; and you shall pull down strongholds, bring down territorial spirits and every tongue of condemnation against you and you can expect to sail into My Glory Realm.”

He says to those who are not eloquent or slow of speech you will be “My mouth-piece, for who has made man’s mouth?” So do not be discouraged there is hope for you.

Watch what goes in and out of your eye, ear and mouth gates that would despoil or rob my blessings, but rather ponder over whatever is true, honourable, pure, lovely, of good report so that you may hold fast to My blessings.

“And I say unto you that if you walk in My ways, you shall walk in My favour and reach your destination.”

Be Blessed and Highly Favoured!

Peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces with abundant supply for those who have sought first His Kingdom and His Righteousness, for He takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servants, how much more for His children?

Worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness, and Him shall you serve; He shall bless your food and water and take sickness away from you and fulfil the number of your days.

You will receive more than you have asked for with peace that passes all understanding and you shall glorify the Lord.

Be Blessed and Highly Favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – September 2019 (Dose of Prophecy)

From the Door-Opener Who Opens and No One Can Shut

This is your month of open doors.
The Door I open none can shut.

You keep staring at a closed door.
Failing to enter puts you in a rut

Open doors of opportunity keep passing you by
Closed doors hold you captive as you linger on

The closed-door is shut completing its course.
Just sail through the open door you need no force

The door I shut, quit banging on it
If it doesn’t open it’s not your door

Entering the open door are secrets galore
Eyes and ears that have not seen or heard, keep marvelling the undisclosed

Doors prematurely closed help make you what you are
Open doors help create what you were designed to be

Miss not the door I have opened for you
My angel on assignment keeps it open for you

He leads you through the open door responding to My Word
The Word I establish, confirm and make firm

This Word I have spoken to you with a listening ear
‘This is the Way walk ye in it,’ the angels hearken, those you hold dear

They hearken to the voice of My Word with compliance
My Spirit to guide, your assured reliance.

Many voices can lead astray;
It’s time to discern opportunities that appeal or repel

My voice you’ll recognize, as you follow My lead
Are you not my sheep through my Word as you heed?

Open doors of prosperity, healing, peace, wealth and more
Come through the open door avail of secrets and plans I bestow

Peter walked on water holding my hand,
Walk through this world with Me though you don’t understand

Give not away your hope your miracle is near,
A wide door of effective service, there’s nothing to fear
A door of utterance, opportunity to witness
Rest assured I’ll be with your mouth as you hear what I say

To hearts that are like doors, opened once don’t close
Recipient of blessings for those I chose

You’re asking what’s possible? – I do the impossible
Lift your vision, set your goals, hearken to my direction I’ll make it possible

I delight to see the work begin, continue and culminate
I’ll take you where you’ve never been to a world of opportunities

The Lord further impresses my heart to prophesy

I see a door opening before you and a voice from heaven beckoning you to enter, with a flight of steps beyond indicating different levels of ascent. There you will go from level to level –  new doors, new revelations, new seasons of change – a paradigm shift, unexpected doors opening, doors of hope, doors of ministry.

The doors of opportunity swing on the hinges of opposition. Do not be disheartened but encouraged that the door God opens for you will stay open and every opposition quelled. Be sensitive to God-ordained new opportunities that come your way. There are some that will exit the place and situation they are in. Look at every exit as being an entrance elsewhere.

The doors that God opens in our lives lead to new beginnings, new blessings and new opportunities to be effective witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ. Today is a good day to open a new door – an adventure to explore learn something new.

 

THE LORD SAYS:

He will send people across your path that in fostering good relationships your service of love will open doors for ministering spirits;

He will make you an open door to draw others to Him and be a door opener to others for as He is, so are you in this world. For even as a little key can open a heavy door, so will you with the anointed words you speak though they be few.

He says there is always a new beginning however small no matter your age and that you do not despise it, for there is reward in it especially when it comes from Him.

He says there are angels on assignment who are working, at creating open doors to lead you from one level to another with the prime purpose of being a blessing to others. So do keep being humble!

I decree and declare that those doors will stay open for you to fulfil your destiny, complete your assignments temporal and spiritual in Jesus’ Name!!

Be Blessed and Highly favoured!

In the matchless Name of Jesus Christ – the Door Opener!

Jesus Calms The Storm — Prophet Tony Mathias

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Matthew 8: 23 to 27Luke 8: 22- 25 One day He and His disciples got in a boat. “Let’s cross the lake,” He said. And off they went. It was smooth sailing, and He fell asleep. A terrific storm came up suddenly on the lake. Water poured in, and they were about to capsize.

They woke Jesus: “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

Getting to His feet, He told the wind, “Silence!” and the waves, “Quiet down!” They did it. The lake became smooth as glass.

Then He said to his disciples, “Why can’t you trust me?”

They were in absolute awe, staggered and stammering, “Who is this, anyway?

He calls out to the winds and sea, and they do what He tells them!”

Whether saved or unsaved, everyone encounters storms in life on this sin-cursed earth. No one is immune from storms.

The Question isIs Jesus in Your Boat? Make sure He is!

What kind 0f Storms Do We Face in Life?
Stock market, property problems, in-law, tax problems; health issues, job loss, financial lack; children out of control; divorce…Perhaps your marriage is crashing. Or, you lost someone close to you, a health problem or addiction…

Just because we’re followers of Jesus doesn’t mean we Will Not have storms in lives.

“In this world you will have tribulation…

“Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble Job 14:1.

There is a miracle in the storm and beyond!

Jesus has a purpose and a strategy in every storm. He wants us to get into the boat where He is, to go to the other side.

If you don’t set sail, you’ll never know what treasures lie beyond on the other side.

It might look difficult nay impossible.

But there’s an answer awaiting you on the other side.

There is a miracle on the other side of the mess you are in.

The miracle happens when you turn the page and enter a new, unfamiliar chapter.

Believe that and push forward.

It may be that God has directed us right into the middle of the storm, which is right where He wants us along our life journey.

You holler! Where are You, God? You just don’t care – He does! He is in our boat! He says I am with you all the days of your life.

He is the Stiller of the Storm! He works in every storm for our good if we trust Him and praise Him Romans 8: 28! – Praise is accepting the present as part of His overall plan for us which is for good and not for evil, to give us the future we hope for.

The Question is – Is Jesus in Your Boat? Make sure He is!

Three specific places for us to ponder over – Before the Storm; During the Storm and After the Storm.

Before The Storm

Four Things to Remember:

  1. Make Sure Jesus Is in Your Boat The disciples survived because Jesus was in the boat with them. He will never leave you once He is in your boat.
  1. Make Sure 0f Your Calling and Election Are you saved, sins forgiven, possess eternal life; Is Jesus your Lord & Saviour?
  1. Make Sure to Call 0n Him Call on Me and I will answer you… He who calls on the Name of the Lord shall be Saved, Healed, Delivered.
  1. Make Sure You Have the God-kind 0f Faith – faith in your words Mark11: 22-23 When Jesus said, “Let us cross over to the other side,” – He believed His words. The disciples expected to go to the other side too.

Jesus slept peacefully without anxiety. He knew they were going to the other side no matter what.… So should we – As He is, so are we, in this world…We will go to the other side!

Unfortunately, the disciples expected to go to the other side without opposition. When the storm arose, they became fearful, don’t we? That is our plight too.

We can’t focus on Jesus thinking about waves and storms around us. That is what the devil wants. He comes to kill, steal and destroy us John 10: 10. The devil is the storm-maker, Lord Jesus is the storm-silencer. No matter how stormy the seas, rough the winds in our lives He will never leave us He does not jump out of our boat whenever we face a storm.

During the Storm

When we are in the midst of a storm, some of us look to family and friends, intellect, ability, money to discover that we are not equipped to handle these storms and change our situation. But there is 0ne and 0nly – Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit who is able to do exceeding, abundantly above … Ephesians 3: 20.

Four Lessons to Learn from Jesus Calming the Storm.

  1. Follow Jesus The Disciples Followed Jesus when He got into the boat. Followers 0f Jesus had problems so would we. But in the midst of problems we will have peace following Jesus. Following Jesus faithfully not only helps us stop worrying, but gets us to heaven!
  2. Focus 0n Jesus If we focus on the storm, we’ll empower doubt. If we focus on Jesus, we’ll empower our faith. We are given divine power to shift our focus. Ephesians 3: 20
  1. Fear Not! He was asleep in the boat, but in control of the situation. We are not to panic even If Jesus Is Silent or it seems He has deserted you. Fear not, He is right beside you!
  2. Cry Out for Help The disciples asked Jesus to help them. Worry is useless, prayer is always effective. We will get what we need. Don’t jump ship when the storm whips.

If you want to make it through the storm, then you need to take God at His Word.”

It takes a storm to know that God is healer, deliverer, refuge and strength.

It takes a storm to answer the question about who God really is.

You already have inside you what you need to handle any storm – the Greater One.

After The Storm

Psalms 107: 29 He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.

One Lesson to Learn.
TestifyLook What the Lord Has Done!

After Jesus calmed the storm, “the men marvelled” Matthew 8: 27

Recall the many times Jesus helped you.

That will increase your faith and help you deal with future problems.

Imitating the disciples at sea is a great idea.

Let us give it a try and see what happens!

 

SONG
He can turn the tides and calm the angry sea
He alone decides who writes a symphony

He lights every star that makes our darkness bright
He keeps watch all through each long and lonely night

He still finds the time to hear a child’s first prayer
Saint or sinner call and always find Him there

And though it makes Him sad to see the way we live
He’ll always say, “I forgive”.

He can grant a wish or make a dream come true.
He can paint the clouds and turn the grey to blue.

He alone knows where to find the rainbow’s end.
He alone can see what lies beyond the bend.
He can touch a tree and turn the leaves to gold.
He knows every lie that you and I have told.

Though it makes him sad to see the way we live.
He’ll always say, “I forgive.”

The McGuire Sisters / Richard Mullen / Jack Richard

Is Jesus in your boat – then fear not!
There is a miracle awaiting you on either sides of the other side.
May Christ within you now rebuke the winds and the waves and bring great calm.

In the matchless Name of Jesus Christ, the Storm-Stiller!

Burden Bearer — Prophet Tony Mathias

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A story is told of a man tall and strong. His job was to carry people across the river and receive money from them in return. He was proud and very confident about his strength he felt he needed no one’s help not even God’s help. He was not a Christian.

One day a beautiful child came to the bank of the river.

As the man bent down to allow the child to climb on his back, the young child said, “Are you sure you can bear my weight?”

The man laughed. He said – I have carried men across the river. You, little one, you are as light as a feather.

“Very well,” said the boy. “But I must warn you. I am heavier than I look.”

The man laughed again and raised the child on his big shoulders and stepped out into the river. But the weight on his back grew more and more heavy and he was surprised. Soon he was struggling and with great difficulty landed on the other side of the river where he put the child.

He asked the child “How can you be so heavy?” “Who are you?”

The child replied – “I am Jesus Christ of Nazareth I carry the burdens of the world on my shoulders. Let me carry your burdens too.” – This man became a Christian and a powerful testimony following this incidence.

This story reminds us that we don’t have to struggle every day on our own. There is One stronger than us. He is the Great Burden-bearer. He carries our burden if we will give it to him.

Burden Bearer
People are bearing all kinds of burdens today which opposes what God says in His Word that they should not be doing so and that includes us.

Prison Doors Open
People are in all kinds of prisons today, often prisons of their own making – trapped in fear, worry, cares, sin, sickness, failure, joblessness, lack, poverty…

They say: Does God care about meDoes he know what I go through?
Yes, He does. Could that be you?

Jesus Your Burden Bearer
The good news is that Jesus the Son of God paid the price by his blood to open the prison doors and set everyone absolutely free. We have been sent to preach the gospel the good news to tell others that the prison doors are open (although many choose to stay in – unaware or refuse to live in freedom).

Jesus said:
Matthew 11:28 – “Come to me, all of you who are tired and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

1 Peter 5:7 – “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares for you.”

Psalms 55:22 – “Cast your burden on the Lord and He will sustain you.”

Philippians 4:6-7 – “In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.”

Many are in prisons of fear, worry, sin, sickness – 25% of the world depressed. The Good News is that God has already opened your prison door and you are free. You need to know how to come out! Carrying your burden will leave you in prison.

Once you carry your burden you have a problem. You try to solve it yourself – you tell others, they will talk about it to others and your problem gets bigger.

If you carry your burden the Lord doesn’t have it. If He has it, you don’t.
And when He has it and He will solve it – miraculously all by himself; through you or others by His leading.

‘Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us’Ephesians 3:20.

But you first need to first cast your burden on the Lord then He will take care of it.

How Do You Cast Your Burden?

Three Steps:

Say – Believe – Do

Step No.1SAY
Mark 11:23 Say with your mouth you are casting the burden on him.

Step No. 2BELIEVE
Hebrews 3:1 Believe with your heart that you have done without being anxious.

Step No. 3DO
James 2:17, 26 Faith-in-action – Ask the Lord if you need to do anything about the same, then do it.

Ask the Lord if you need to do anything about the same, then do it. Keep praising and thanking the Lord in advance that the problem is solved.

That all sums up your faith in action, showing you have believed.

Once again – How Do You Cast Your Burden?

Say something like this:

Lord Jesus Christ You are my Savior, my Lord my burden bearer.
I cast this burden on You and I go free.
Without You I can do nothing. With You I can do all things.
Let me know if there is anything for me to do in this situation.
I will follow Your lead.
Thank you Lord!

Now DO as led by the Lord.
If you do this, you will have peace and assurance your problem is solved.
He will not fail you nor forsake you.

Conclusion:
Let us summarize in brief what we have learnt.

You have a Burden?
Cast it on Jesus, He is your burden-bearer. He told you to do so.

Cast your burden on Him in three steps.

  1. SAY with your mouth that you have cast the burden on him.
  2. BELIEVE in your heart that you have done so.
  3. DO something – faith in action, obeying his leading, praising and thanksgiving.

Next, He will solve your problem in at least three ways: – Either, or a combination of all three:

  • Miraculously by Himself
  • By leading you
  • Through others

What happens next?
Your problem is solved! You tell others ‘Look what the Lord has done!’
He gets the glory!

Household Salvation — Prophet Tony Mathias

There is only one way to salvation and that is through faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation only comes through an individual believing in Christ. It is not something a father can do for his son or daughter. There is no guarantee that if one member of a family believes the rest will do so. Matthew 7:13-14; John 6:67-68; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8.

Jesus Himself indicates that the Gospel often divides families. Also, God elects individuals to salvation and the elect believe and are saved. This indicates that both ‘election and salvation’ are more individual in nature than corporate although God does have a family plan. Matthew 10:34-36; 24:24,31; Mark 13:20; Romans 9:16-18.

If salvation is an individual action, how are we to understand passages in the Bible that seem to promise of household salvation? Let us consider a few examples.

Cornelius’ Household
Acts 10: 33; 11: 14-18; Romans 1: 16

A promise was given to Cornelius that his household would be saved. This does not mean it applies universally to all households. It was a specific promise to a specific person at a specific time.

Cornelius and his household gathered to hear Peter commanded by the Lord speak. They were in a position to hear the Gospel which “is the power of God to salvation.”

Hearing Peter preach the Gospel Cornelius’s entire household believed and were baptized. So, they were saved was according to God’s plan of salvation, the preaching of the Gospel. They were saved because they believed not because Cornelius did.

The Philippian Jailer
Acts 16:30-33

The jailer asks “Sirs what must I do to be saved.” Paul and Silas responded, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household.” Again this promise is given to a specific individual in specific context yet universal in nature unlike the promise to Cornelius. The promise is not one of household salvation but is entirely consistent with every other verse in the Bible that speaks of salvation – believe in the Lord Jesus “you shall be saved.”

Again we see that salvation came as the result of hearing the Word of God and responding in faith which is also consistent with every other verse in the Bible concerning salvation. They were not saved because they were part of the jailers household, instead they were saved because they believed the Gospel message and responded in faith. – Individual people hear the gospel, respond in faith and are saved.

However, God’s plan is also a family plan. All of the beautiful ties of home and family are meant to be eternal. We may not understand how God can accomplish a family relationship in heaven. His desire is that none should perish but all be saved. It is impossible to understand his methods. Romans 11:33

Rahab saved the spies who went into Jericho. The spies, inspired by God, said, asked Rahab, to bring her family here into the house and they would all be saved. Rahab did so and her family was saved. Joshua 6:17-25

God showed his keen interest in families by forming the home before he made the church. He wants that same wonderful unity, and recognition of himself, which people expect to feel in the church, to also be in the home.

Many Christians have been praying for the unsaved loved ones in their families. “Does this mean they are already ALL saved?” “No, God will not violate the free will, but it means that he is going to do everything necessary to bring people to the point where it will be easy for them to make the choice to serve him. And yet they could reject his offer.

If you have laid your loved ones before him in sincerity and in faith you can start praising God right now. He is on the job, and has released forces to bring about circumstances which would make it hard for these people to resist God. The Holy Spirit is preaching to them along with his angels on errands. God desires none to perish but all to be saved. He really loves people!

Good Things Do Happen — Prophet Tony Mathias

A Church member who was a businessman dreaded his frequent business trips away from his loving family because he viewed ‘pornography’ secretly in his hotel room. He tried his best to break this habit but he couldn’t stop. This led to guilt and condemnation. He finally broke this dreadful habit when he got a revelation that he is as righteous as Jesus by God’s grace which he received at salvation.

Good Things Happen
To Those Who Believe the Good News!

Romans 5:17 –“…those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life by Jesus Christ.” – This is the ‘Gospel of Grace’ which is God’s power to bring salvation, deliverance, preservation, healing, health to all who believe.” Romans 1:16.

The First Secret: ‘Secret to Freedom from Bondage’
Romans 6:14; 1 Corinthians 15:34

When you know you are Righteous and have abundance of Grace.

“Sin will not have dominion…you are not under the law but under grace.” This happens when you: “Awake to righteousness.” [Then you sin not].

The Second Secret: ‘Secret to the Supernatural’
‘Hear the good news- all your sins are forgiven because of the Cross.’

Apostle Paul preached forgiveness people got healed as they listened. The man lame from birth leaped & walked the first time in his life! A person deaf in one ear got healed while hearing this message! Good things happen to those who fully depend on the grace of God. The more we hear good news the more miracles & breakthroughs we see. When you believe you’re forgiven and made righteous: You will be Healed, Prospered and Blessed!

Good Things Happen
To Those Who Believe God Loves Them!

Psalms 103: 1-5 – “…Bless the Lord O my soul and forget not all his benefits: Who forgives all…who heals all your diseases” – Forgiveness comes before healing. Once you know you are forgiven of all your sins, healing follows!

Many suffer guilt and condemnation which destroys life and perpetuates the cycle of sin resulting in sickness – The good news? – His grace, righteousness and blood has set you absolutely free from sin.

The power to overcome sin is found in the gift of ‘no condemnation.’ And you are given this gift!

Jesus says to the woman caught in adultery. “Neither do I condemn you…go sin no more.”

The Third Secret: “Secret to be filled with the fullness of God”
When you know God loves you.

Paul prayed for the Church of Ephesus the most spiritual Church of his time. He prayed that they would understand ‘the width, length, breadth, depth and height of the love of Christ,’ well portrayed by the Cross of Jesus Christ. He prayed that they would be filled with the fullness of God.

When you know God loves you, you will be filled with the fullness of God!

The Fourth Secret: “Secret of Abundance”
When you know God loves you – think big and ask big.

He went on to say: “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding…” Ephesians 3:20. God becomes big in your life when you know his love.

Think and ask big. God still exceeds your demands because He loves you.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world….” He loved you so much that he did not withhold his only Son whom he loved for you.

That is why “good things happen even to bad people.” Jesus received all our ‘bad’ and we took all his ‘good.’ This is the gospel of Jesus Christ based on grace.

God has accepted you in the Beloved. He is well pleased with you because you are in Christ. You are God’s beloved Child and he says to you: ‘You are my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”

Once you know you’re God’s beloved despite your sinning and failing

– Satan’s attacks against you will fail.
– Sin will not dominate you
– Temptation will not succeed
– Sickness will fade away
– Your giants will come tumbling down
– There will be no room for sin & sickness, no room for gloom
– You will prosper in every way
– You are highly blessed and highly favored!

Remember:
Good things happen to those who believe the Good News!
Good things happen to those who believe God loves them!

The Four secrets revealed to you are:

1. ‘Secret to Freedom from Bondage’
When you know you are Righteous and have an abundance of Grace.

2. ‘Secret to the Supernatural’
When you hear and believe the good news that all your sins are forgiven because of the Cross of Jesus Christ.’

3. “Secret to be filled with the fullness of God
When you know God loves you.

The Lord Who Heals (Jehovah Rapha) – Pastor Lynette Mathias

Throughout the Bible, God presents Himself with different names. Each name reveals something important about God. One of the names of God is Jehovah Rapha. “The Lord who heals.”

In the Old Testament times, a name was not only an identity but many times a special meaning was attached to the name. In the Old Testament, Jehovah – Rapha – The Lord that heals is used 1st time in Exodus 15:26.

Now let’s see what this specific Name of God – Jehovah Rapha means and what it signifies about the character of God in the finished work of Christ.

Jehovah Rapha – The Lord who heals –which means ‘I am Jehovah who heals you both in body and soul.

In the body by preserving from and curing diseases. And in soul, by pardoning iniquities.

Isaiah 53:4-5 points to Jesus who came to heal us from the wounds of sin, restoring us to our true identity as sons and daughters in Christ.

How many of you know that “sin is a disease?”

Let’s go to Psalms 103:3 – It shows the characteristic of God to pardon sin.

It is the 1st of the “benefits” which is received from God or the 1st thing in importance among God’s acts or His dealings with His people which calls for praise unto God.

This verse portrays God’s character as a “forgiving” God, as a “merciful” God – that has declared His willingness to pardon sin.

So verse 3 of Psalms 103 says: “Who forgives all your iniquities” – that is one side of the coin – the other side being “Who heals all your diseases”.

And this depicts God’s goodness, that He has the power of healing disease.

  • Forgiveness & healing are men’s greatest needs.
  • Forgiveness & healing are received from God which means He only has the right to forgive and heal.
  • Forgiveness & healing are inseparably connected. When God forgives, He heals.

When you and I lay hold off or possess forgiveness and healing, it results and inspires the deepest gratitude to God.

Jesus appeared as the Messiah fulfilling the hopes of the Hebrews.  He healed the broken hearted, bound-up wounds and gave sight to the blind (Luke 4:18)

Jesus Christ showed not only that He was the Healer but manifested His love and compassion as a forgiving God and willingness to restore the diseased body, mind and soul.

How many of you know that God also heals today? It is part of His character. God is a Healer.  When Christ came to the earth, He healed the sick, the blind, the lame and even more than that, He healed the hearts of people.

People who were separated from God and under His wrath, when they repented, Jesus healed them.  He healed the terminated sickness of our souls and drew us back to God.  Thank God that Jesus is a Healer and that He still heals today.

Remember sickness and disease are illegal to the believer.

You need to know this – you have the right to walk in divine health, because Jesus went to the cross – spirit, soul and body – to redeem us spirit, soul and body. Amen!

Galatians 3:13 tells us “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law having become curse for us for it is written “cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”. Hang where? On a tree.

It is a finished work. 1 Peter 2:24 tells us “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body”.  Where?  On the tree.  “That we having died to sins, might live for righteousness by whose stripes you were healed – were – past tense – it is already a done thing.

In both these verses the word “tree” is mentioned (keep this in mind).

Now let’s come back and understand under what circumstances the name of God – Jehovah Rapha was revealed.

This name of God – Jehovah Rapha is proclaimed to the children of Israel by God through Moses at Marah.

If we read Exodus 15:22-26, we find that Israelites after they cross the Red Sea, they were in the wilderness for about 3 days and were thirsty in need of water and when they came to Marah, they found the water to be bitter water to drink.

In what became second nature to them, they began complaining, grumbling, murmuring about it to Moses, whining about the scarcity of drinkable water.

Moses called to the Lord and asked for help. God intervened, working through Moses, and He showed him a tree.  So a piece of wood was provided.

And Moses threw it into the water as per instructions from God.  And the bitter water became sweet refreshing water for the people.

It is at this point that the Lord suddenly begins to talk to the Israelites about the diseases and plagues that He brought upon the Egyptians because of the afflictions of the Hebrews.

So God is concerned at this point about the Hebrew people, regarding the actions that they must take to prevent the same kind of diseases and plagues from visiting them.

So He demands obedience from them, lest the diseases and plagues come upon them for disobedience.

And if they will be obedient to Him, none of those diseases would come upon them.  So the reason for no sickness upon the obedient was because God is the Healer of His people.  Here He reveals Himself as “Jehovah Rapha” – Jehovah the Healer or Jehovah your Physician that heals you.  To prove to them that He not only could heal, but that He was also willing to do so and thus fulfil His promises and covenants unto them.

God promised to make everyone, without exception, immune from all diseases in the future upon meeting conditions such as suggested in Exodus 15:26 and that is –

(1) Diligently hear His voice

(2) Live righteous lives in His sight

(3) Give ear to His commandments and

(4) Keep all His statutes.

I believe the bitter water at Marah was symbolic of what was taking place in the hearts of the Hebrews. Actually, when the Hebrews left Egypt, and crossed the Red Sea, they were very happy to leave the bondage that Pharaoh had inflicted upon them.

However, when they realized that their freedom from bondage was not so easy, that they had to rely on God completely for everything, and that the circumstances for them were not what they desired, namely the bitter waters, their hearts began to be filled with the diseases of bitterness and resentfulness.

God knew their need for healing from bitterness.  And He longed to bring that healing to them. So it is here He reveals Himself as “Jehovah Rapha” – “The Lord Who Heals”.  For He longed to heal them of their resentfulness, bitterness and pride.  So the healing of the waters of Marah was a demonstration of God’s power to the Israelites to overcome any impurity, contamination or corruption.  This power was going to work on behalf of the Israelites, God’s chosen people, all the way while they journeyed to the Promised Land.

It was also the demonstration of God’s promise to them to make every one of them without exception, immune from all diseases which He brought upon the Egyptians, if they met the conditions He placed in verse 26 of Exodus 15.

Now let’s see what lessons we can learn from Exodus 15:26.

Do we face any difficult situations in a desert or wilderness experience in our lives? Most certainly!  And instead of protesting against it, like Moses we need to pray and ask God for help.  We need to remember God always answers our prayer.

When Moses prayed about the situation – bitter waters – God gave him the solution – showed him a tree – a piece of wood to be thrown into the waters, and the bitter waters became sweet.

In verse 26 of Exodus 15, God initiates a test to His people.  I would say He challenged them to obey Him completely, wholeheartedly – and if they did so – no diseases would come upon them.  In fact, in the midst of their bitterness and hurt, God reveals Himself to them as their Healer.

We too grumble, complain, murmur, etc.  We too can be healed but 1st we must repent of the same.  So like the Israelites, we too are in need of healing in all 3 areas – physical, emotional and spiritual.

So in emotional healing, the Lord heals emotional hurts and broken hearts. Psalms 147:3 says: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds”. Whatever pain you are carrying around, you need to hand it to the Healer.

In physical healing – some of us are experiencing a tough time right now.  The pain and discouragement that comes from Physical difficulties e.g. back pain, leg pain, joint pain, neck pain, toothache, headache, frozen shoulder, stones in the bladder, etc., etc.  We must ask Jehovah Rapha to do His healing work in our lives. In the gospels, there are so many instances mentioned where Jesus spent lot of time healing people of their physical ailments.

The spiritual healing is by far the most important of the 3 realms of healing.  For the spiritually sick, He provides healing and wholeness through the shed blood of Jesus on the cross.

Luke 4:18 says talking about Jesus.  “He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted to preach deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed”.

You might be saying to God “Oh God please take away this sickness from me”. That may not change anything. Or you might say, but God says “I will take sickness away from among you”. The good news is that He already did that in Jesus Christ.  So in God’s eyes, you are already perfect, even though you might be going through trials, pain and difficulties. He sees you the way He sees Jesus.  In His sight, there’s nothing wrong with you.  And if there is, Jehovah Raphathe God Who heals – He has already healed you.  By His wounds you were already healed.  So live in this consciousness – that you are healed!  For healing is your birthright!  Only Jesus can sweeten the bitterness of life.  He is the bondage breaker. Alleluia!

So I end with this –

  • All our problems began at a tree in the garden of Eden – the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
  • All our sin problem is resolved because another piece of wood – which is a tree – Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree – was used to hold our sin substitute on the cross.

The significance behind the wood from a tree is providing sweetness to the bitter water.

Whether you are hurting emotionally, physically or spiritually, right now turn to the Lord Who heals – Jehovah Rapha. Amen!

Birthing Your Prophetic Destiny — Prophet Tony Mathias

There are some who have had prophetic words over their lives and yet they have not come to pass for several years. You may be one of those. Although you may have had them confirmed from the mouth of two or three witnesses yet in desperation you may have said the Prophet was wrong. You may have said, “I’ve heard everything the Bible has said about healing, but I still haven’t received the promise of God in a miracle.” So you gave up on believing the word of the Lord and the revelation.

Why is this so? And how can you birth the prophetic word given to you, see your prophetic promises fulfilled and release your destiny?

Matthew 16:13-17 Simon Peter had a revelation from heaven. He said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father in heaven.”

You too may also have received divine inspiration like Peter-a prophetic word, a vision, an illumined scripture from God. Maybe a prophet called you out and prophesied over you or God spoke to you through television, radio or a dream.

God may have revealed something we would accomplish for him, something we would become or something we would see Him do in our lifetime.

Matthew 16 Jesus said to Peter: “I say to you Peter, ‘on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.‘” This was a specific [rhema] word to Peter.

“On this rock” means on this rock of revelation, of being able to hear what your Father in heaven is saying, I shall build, My church.” Revelation activates destiny!

In the same passage, Jesus goes on to say, “Peter, I’ve given you the keys to the kingdom.The keys are the prophetic word or revelation you receive. It is the key to your destiny. You can use this key to unlock heaven and lose things in heaven so what God said about you in heaven can come to pass on the earth. With that prophetic destiny key, you can build and plant or uproot and pull down every opposition to its fulfillment. Jeremiah 1:10.

When God gives you a revelation, you are called to build, plant, loose, birth and bring to pass that word by working with the Holy Ghost. At the same time, you may have to pull down some things in the spirit that oppose the fulfillment of your word.

We need to know how to properly use these keys which have been handed to us through visions, dreams or words from the Lord.

Many times we have not walked in the fulfillment of what God said about us, not because of the prophet, God or the devil, but because of ourselves. We have a responsibility to birth prophetic promises that are given to us. When God speaks something about you, He is releasing a potential. What we do with it can determine our destiny.

When God says something about you, He is speaking out and releasing your potential. Many Christians don’t realize that most prophetic words, or their timing, are conditional upon us taking certain steps of obedience.

Daniel had a revelation while he was reading the book of Jeremiah. God breathed on the scripture and revealed to him that he was about to come out of Babylonian captivity after 70 years. Daniel began to fast and pray. Daniel 10 about what God said – he didn’t just take God’s spoken word for granted. He realized that God wanted him to be involved in the word.

Like Daniel, we need to birth prophetic words of God spoken to us and bring to pass what is potential. They are designed to stir up and cause destiny to come alive in us so we will get passionate about what God about us. We need to fast and pray over the prophetic word given to us.

Daniel kept praying and after 21 days Gabriel the archangel showed up and told him that God had heard his prayer on the very first day but it took 21 days for the answer to come because of opposition in heaven called the Prince of Persia. The enemy didn’t want him to receive what God wanted him to have immediately so there was a delay in the spirit.

What are the roadblocks to your destiny?It may be an opposition set up in heaven against your destiny.

So how do we hasten the word of the Lord?

  • Pray with Fasting
  • Prophetic Decree – proclaim or declare by faith the word given to you
  • Release angels to go and get what God has for you – angels should be sent out to battle the forces of the enemy trying to keep us from our destiny

Labour of Love — Prophet Tony Mathias

The Lord ‘records and rewards’ all the hard work and sacrifices you make for the sake of the gospel.

The Lord listened and recorded the names of those who feared and honored Him and what they spoke with each other. Malachi 3:16

God does not forget how hard you worked for him and how you showed your love to him by caring for other believers…Hebrews 6:10

Let’s take Peter’s example. Let’s see the ‘record and reward’ in his case.

Jesus on the shore of Lake Gennesaret, taught the people who crowded around him to hear God’s message. Jesus got into the boat that belonged to Simon Peter and asked him to row it out a little away from the shore. He then sat down in the boat to teach the crowd. Peter was disappointed and exhausted. He had spent a night of fruitless fishing. Imagine how he felt when the Lord asked him to give him his boat yet he helped the Master to preach his message. Jesus noticed this and rewarded him for it. How?

After having finished speaking, He told Simon to row the boat into the deep and let down his nets. When Simon and his men obeyed they caught so many fish that their nets began ripping apart. They signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them. The men came, and together they filled the two boats to the point of sinking Peter toiled all night caught no fish. Now he had plenty, just because he helped the Master. Luke 5:1-7

Have you made any sacrifices for the sake of the gospel? – Time, money, family, friends, relationships
God hasn’t forgotten.

Your blessings don’t wait till you get to heaven; they begin to rain down here on earth. Peter didn’t receive his harvest of fishes in heaven. He got it on earth!

Mark 10:29-31. Jesus said: “…anyone who gives up home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or land for me and for the good news will be rewarded. In this world, they will be given a hundred times as many houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and pieces of land, though they will also be mistreated. And in the world to come, they will have eternal life.”

God doesn’t forget your labor of love. He will reward you in due time.

Finally, you prove your love for God and your love towards Him in the way you show your love to others, especially fellow believers.

1 John 4:20“He who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?” – If you don’t actively love those for whom Jesus died for, then you really don’t love God.”

We must do good to others at the slightest opportunity.

“My dear children let’s not just talk about love; let us practice real love.”
– 1 John 3:18

God records and rewards our labor of love!
