"I will restore health unto thee"

In Moses' great exhortation to Israel, which is set forth in Deuteronomy, are to be found the words, "And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee." In Jeremiah, also, the promise of spiritual healing stands out prominently in the seventeenth verse of the thirtieth chapter, part of which reads, "I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord." These words of the Hebrew lawgiver and the Hebrew prophet show unmistakably that both of them relied on divine power to heal, and that they were desirous that their people should have the same conviction, the same faith.

It is very interesting to note that God's power to heal was thus acknowledged among the children of Israel long before Christ Jesus proclaimed it and demonstrated it with such marvelous skill, and the disciples courageously endeavored to follow in his footsteps. It shows that as God was better understood, as His relationship to man became clearer, men were able to repose faith and trust in His protecting care to such an extent that the evil beliefs which beset them, even to the showing of themselves in forms of disease, were displaced with the inevitable healing result.
