One of God’s revealed names is Jehovah Rapha.
Rapha, in the Hebrew language, is the root word for health, healer, being healed, etc. It stands to reason, therefore, that the God whose name is JEHOVAH HEALTH, will have the blessings of healing emanate from His sanctuary to His children who call upon Him in faith. How and when that healing virtue flows is not an exact science, rather it’s more of an organic and a relational wonder that results from abiding in Jesus our Savior, trusting in His unfailing love, and calling on Him in faith that He hears, that He cares, and that He is willing to help us.
One of my favorite scriptures is Matt 8:16, saying: “When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed ALL who were sick.” I hope you caught that little word, ALL… not some of the moderate cases, not a few promising discipleship candidates, but ALL the sick that came to Jesus were healed!
And while we fight the good fight of faith regarding the reality and hope of God’s promise of healing and restoration in our own lives, we are grateful for the healing virtues He has already committed into the hands of capable physicians and scientists who battle diseases each and every day.

New medication developed by an Israeli startup gives hope in the battle against AIDS
A new medication that is being developed by an Israeli startup together with Kaplan Medical Center in Israel hopes to lead to a breakthrough in the battle against AIDS. According to the new approach, the virus could potentially be fully cured rather than having its reproduction merely delayed.
And consider including Israel in your upcoming travel plans. This “startup nation,” as it’s often referred to, will astonish you with the myriads of miracles and wonders that only God could have generated in such a small place during such a short time.
