Three million people miraculously healed in an instant. How something of this magnitude could be overlooked by God’s people is beyond comprehension. As entire nations scramble to find an escape from the wrath of God poured out on the last generation in the form of plagues of judgement, never before has there been a more crucial time for believers to understand and partake in God’s Healing Covenant. God’s healing plan for His people is still in operation today in the New Testament, and it is appropriated the same way it was in Old Testament times by participating in the sacred covenant festival, which is called Passover in the Old Testament and Communion or the Lord’s Supper in the New Testament.
A Massive Healing Banquet
The judgement by plagues was poured out on God’s enemies at the same time divine healing was ministered to His children. ~ “For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the LORD will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you. And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever” (Exodus 12.23-24). This eternal ordinance remains the cryptic key to God’s Healing Covenant even to today. The Bible goes on to say that the entire Hebrew nation was not only delivered from the plagues of wrath (the destroyer), every living soul in communion was miraculously healed. The book of Psalms declares ~ “He also brought them out with silver and gold, And there was none feeble [sick] among His tribes. Egypt was glad when they departed, For the fear of them had fallen upon them” (Psalm 105.37-38).
Immunity & Healing Together
The Bible states that 600,000 men, not counting women and children, marched out of Egypt the night of the first Passover. Most Biblical analysts concur that a modest estimate of the complete number, including children, women and the elderly would be around three million people. Not only did God heal them all, He also strengthened them to the point that out of three million people there was not even one person who was feeble among them. This is much more than mere healing would achieve. The Spanish Bible say that there was not ‘one sick’ [enfermo] among them. It simply stands to reason that anyone who is sick is weak and feeble. If five-hundred people were randomly selected from any neighborhood today to march out into a forty-year journey into the desert, it would be quickly found that at least 20% of them would be too feeble through sickness and age to even walk 2 miles, much less carry all of their belongings plus small children on their backs.
God Always Heals at Communion
The Bible goes on to affirm that, like communion in the New Testament, physical healing was a normal part of the Passover Feast in Old Testament times. Let’s have a look at what happened when the renowned King Hezekiah celebrated the Passover Feast in Jerusalem ~ “Then they slaughtered the Passover lambs on the fourteenth day of the second month. And the LORD…healed the people” (2Chronicals 30.15,20). Jesus instituted communion, the New Testament version of the Hebrew Passover, in the famous Last Supper the night He was betrayed. The book of 1Corinthians declares that the only reason Christians are sick today in the New Testament is because of a failure to celebrate the sacred Communion rite properly. ~ “Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep [dead]” (1Corinthians 11.20,30).
Healing is the Children’s Bread
God’s people are sick and feeble and subject to the plagues of judgement because they do not enter into communion (love) with the family of God. This is what Jesus referred to when He said that it was not right to give healing (the children’s bread) to those who refuse God’s healing covenant ~ “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw [it] to the little dogs. Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great [is] your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour” (Matthew 15.26,28). The ‘bread’ Jesus spoke of is the healing bread of the communion sacrament. God healed the Hebrew nation during the Passover meal the same way healing is instituted as part of the Last Supper in the New Testament. Begin today to participate in God’s Healing Covenant with you by properly taking your place at the Lord’s Table.
So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water [communion]. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.
