 Greeting  from the National Chaplain

Tell a Friend

Greetings in the Name of the Lord!  As we begin a new triennium in OSL, we are looking to the Lord for His direction, and His plans and purposes for this time.

Worldwide, we are seeing a shift in the Heavenly things and OSL has a part to play.  Hebrews 13:8 tells us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.  The Bible also tells us that God says about Himself:  I am the Lord, I change not.  That means the God of Healing in the Old and New Testaments is still the God of healing.

In the four Gospels, we see Jesus demonstrate the fulfilment of Exodus 15:26 where He is "Jehovah Rapha", the Lord that Healeth Thee (KJV).  If Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, then the God Who healed in the Old and New Testaments is still healing today.

Jehovah Rapha literally means "the Lord, your Doctor" or "the Lord, your Physician".  When our earthly doctors can't help us, we have a Heavenly doctor Who can perform the impossible.

We live in an imperfect world and we don't have all the answers but we know the Person Who has all the answers.  As we seek His face and call upon His Name, we can be sure of an answer.

Jeremiah 3:33 says call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, remarkable secrets.  Our wonderful Saviour does not want to withhold from us.  We might think of Jeremiah 333 as God's telephone number.

One of my favourite scriptures is from Psalm 119 where King David of Jerusalem is crying out to his Lord:  give me understanding and I shall live!  We can do the same.  I often think that if God gives me understanding of what I'm going through, I can live through it.

There are seven important redemptive names of God and Jehovah-Shalom is one of these names.  "Shalom" literally means nothing missing, nothing broken.  So, in the times we face a healing challenge, our first call should be to our Risen Saviour. 

Jesus not only bore the pain of the cross, He also bore the pain and burden of all the sicknesses and diseases in the world on that cross.  He did not do this in vain.  He took it so we don't have to.  What a Saviour!

Blessings to you as you seek the Lord and may you experience times of refreshing in His presence.

Sincerely in Christ
