This sermon was taken out of my archives on my computer. It is one that I’ve preached in my church a while back in obedience to the Lord. I often glean from other sermoncentral contributors; I however, did not have on record as part of this message any sermoncentral contributors. I’ve indicated my sources wherever I’ve borrowed quotes and/or illustrations from others. If by any chance I’ve omitted any Bibliographical references, please note this has not been deliberate, it’s just that the message was prepared some time back and I cannot now recall all my sources unless I’ve specifically recorded them at the time of writing.


God’s Plan Of Health For The Whole Man



• One of the covenant names of God is in Ex 15:26, where the Lord says: I AM THE LORD THAT HEALS YOU.” – Hebrew ‘Jehovah Rapha’ – The Lord our Healer.

• It is God’s intention that we be completely healthy in Spirit, Soul and Body. (Free from sin, delivered from emotional distress and completely healed in our bodies).

One of the major pre-conditions to walking in divine health is that we walk in obedience to God’s will. :



[I.e. that we have a clear conscience before God. Heb 9:14, 1Jn 1:9, Pro 28:13.]

A] Exodus 15:22-27 (empahasis vs 26)

The Waters of Marah and Elim

22 Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water. 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.) 24 So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?”

25 Then Moses cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.

There the LORD made a decree and a law for them, and there he tested them. 26 He said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you.”

27 Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and they camped there near the water.

B. (Also Proverbs 4:20-22)



A) PROV 4:20-22

[NIV] 20 My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. 21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. (NIV)

[KJV] My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh (Kings James version).

• Through His Word, God promises us that He would be medicine which would bring health to all our flesh.

• We need to believe God’s word and take it as our medicine – the condition is that we walk according to His will.

• When a doctor gives a person medicine, directions for taking it are on the bottle – this is what is happening in this portion of scripture.

VS 22: “Health to all their flesh" - This means health to one’s total physical body.

N.B. The alternative translation for the word ‘health’ is ‘medicine’.

B) DEREK PRINCE TESTIMONY (Miraculously healed by God after no medical treatment could help him)

‘I saw very clearly that there were four specific directions for taking God’s word as medicine for the physical body. These are the directions:

1. Attend to my words.

2. Incline thine ear unto my sayings (‘listen closely to what I am saying’ NIV).
