Means ‘The Lord That Heal’ as per Exodus 15:26.

In what context was this name of God revealed?

Consider the passage: Exodus 15:22-26 (GNB):

(22) “Then Moses led the people of Israel away from the Red Sea into the desert of Shur. For three days they walked through the desert, but found no water.

(23) Then they came to a place called Marah, but the water there was so bitter that they could not drink it. That is why it was named Marah.

(24) The people complained to Moses and asked, "What are we going to drink?"

(25) Moses prayed earnestly to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a piece of wood, which he threw into the water; and the water became fit to drink. There the LORD gave them laws to live by, and there he also tested them.

(26) He said, "If you will obey me completely by doing what I consider right and by keeping my commands, I will not punish you with any of the diseases that I brought on the Egyptians. I am the LORD, the one who heals you."

“God, your Healer, is waiting for you to come to Him with what is on your heart. He wants to bring healing to your circumstances, your relationships, your hurt & your pain. He will touch your heart with a “piece of wood” - the Cross.

God healed physically in the Old Testament & in the New Testament. God’s Word clearly teaches that God’s character never changes. He is the same yesterday, today & forever. (Heb 13:8)

Therefore, we can conclude with great assurance that we are to pray not only for spiritual healing but also for physical healing.” (

“Both sin and sickness came into the world through the fall of the human race. Therefore, we must look for the healing of both in the savior of the human race. God is as willing to heal believers as He is to forgive unbelievers. Know this, if He was merciful enough to forgive you when you were unconverted, He is merciful enough to heal you now that you are in His family!” - T. L. Osborn.
