The Healing Christ - the Sun of Righteousness
The healing Christ is the Sun of righteousness with healing in His wings (Malachi 4:2). The word Sun refers to life (i.e., the sun as source of life supply) and righteousness refers to justice. Many are excited by miraculous physical healing. However, this is not the aspect of the healing Christ I'm going to write about today.
The truth is...
"Today the whole world is sick. The daily news reports are filled with death, injustice, lawlessness, and darkness. This earth needs healing, but it will not get it until Christ returns. The only ones who receive healing today are the ones who know Christ as their Savior and inward life.
We are receiving this healing ahead of time in a secret, hidden way every day. We are sick in our entire being- spirit, soul and body. We need our whole being to be healed by the Sun of righteousness. We need His wings to heal us, first inwardly and then outwardly."
The divine healing for our physical sickness barely scratches the surface. The root of the problem is inward, inherent in the nature of being fallen. We may never consider this but what actually heals us is not an outward healing. What heals us is the Light of Life (John 1:4-5). The light brings life to us.
As the sun shines, the plant grows. Likewise, as the Lord shines in our being, we grow in life. When we were first born again as Christians, it was like the Lord planted Himself as the seed of the divine life in our being.
Before we were just the totality of being fallen, but now there was a divine seed in the deepest part of our being- our human spirit. A third of our being is DIVINE! This divine seed is God Himself with all His divine characteristics. The real healing soon began when this One started to spread from inside out. This healing is His growing in us.
I'm not sure about you, but in myself, I have never felt wholesome. There are so many lacks, shortages, weaknesses, holes in my being. Only when I'm in fellowship with the Lord, with the members of His Body, that I would feel more whole. That's because more of Him gets added into me as He's growing within.
To me this healing is my full salvation.I'm being saved to the uttermost. I'm being made whole from inside out, from my spirit to my soul to my body. All byproducts of death, injustice, lawlessness, and darkness in me are swallowed up by the healing Christ.
Christ is ready to fly above us, around us, through us, and within us as the Sun of righteousness. All we need to do is just to give Him the freedom to do so. These days I'm learning to pray, "Lord, heal me some more today. Heal my spirit by strengthening it, heal my soul by transforming it, and heal my body by giving life to it."
This divine healing starts with us because we have the healing Christ in our spirit today. Actually the source of healing is our spirit.

But eventually the Sun of righteousness will heal, revive, restore this whole earth when He returns in His second coming.
