Monday's Dose - 28th November 2011

Jehovah Rapha

"Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
- Psalms:103:3.

What is it with people calling themselves "Doctor" these days? Just
driving around, I've seen signs for the "House Doctor," the "Rug
Doctor," the "Car Doctor," and the "Money Doctor." Now, I know this
frustrates medical doctors, who have gone to school for 22 plus years
of their lives, paid their dues, have enormous school bills, wake up
at 2:30 AM to deliver a baby, and spend what most people make in a
year...on malpractice insurance (ah, the good life).

I'm not talking about PhD's, who have run the educational gamut too,
and earned their highest degree, but are only to be called "doctor"
by others within their field.

Our society has dishonored the title of doctor. There oughtta be a
law - if you don't have an M.D. than you can be fined for
impersonating a doctor, and practicing medicine without a license.
They would start by asking you to recite the Hippocratic oath. If you
can't, then they would give you the Hypocritic oath. Then they would
ask to see your tongue depressors. Every doctor has a jar of those,
even if he is a proctologist. Then, they would ask you to say "Hmm."
If it didn't sound like it was backed up with a zillion Latin words
for diseases, they'd ask to see your license. If you were a real
doctor, your license would say that you have the right to "practice"
medicine. Practice...on me? Hey, wait a minute. I'm no guinea pig,
pal. And what if you slip with that scalpel? No, sirree....

There's only One Person I know who doesn't need to "practice"
medicine. He knows exactly what's ailin' you, and how to fix
it...every time. In fact, He made you..."in His image." And He paid
the price for your health and salvation at that sacred of all
schools...MCU - Mt. Calvary University. He is the only doctor "who
never slumbers or sleeps" (Ps. 121:4); who truly does "feel your
pain" (Heb. 4:15); who has been called by the ancient Jews
as "Jehovah Rapha" - "I AM The Lord who heals you" (Exod. 15:26);
Whose words are "life unto those who find them, and health to all
their flesh" (Prov. 4:22); Who "sent forth His Word and healed them"
(Ps. 107:20); Who has promised to "forgive all your iniquities, and
heal all your diseases" (Ps. 103:3); Who has never ever turned any
sick person away who enters His waiting room by faith (Mt. 4:23;
8:16; 9:35; 13:58). He is the only doctor who has a General Practice,
but is a Specialist in all areas (Mt. 12:13,22; 14:36; 15:30; 17:18;
Mark 1:31; 10:52; Luke 7:21; 13:13; 17:14; 22:51; John 4:50; 5:9;
9:6,7); and Who doesn't require an appointment, but can be beckoned
by the simple prayer of faith (Jam. 5:14,15).

And friends, that'll preach!

Have a great day in the loving hands of Doctor Jesus, knowing that He
knows the very "hairs on your head"...and His stethoscope is never
cold. So, open wide and say "!"

Prayer: "Our Almighty Father in Heaven, Thank you for your tender
loving care and good health that you have given me. You are my
protector and my doctor and I commit myself into your precious hands,
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus
loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you all.
