The Great Physician – Jesus Christ – doesn’t Practice, He Performs!
His Eternal Health Plan will guide you across the sea of life and then into peace and celebration of a life hereafter without pain or suffering forever.
Listen to Frank Jordan’s Commentary on the Great Physician: 022615HWW-GreatPhysician.mp3
When a religious person is asked the identity of “The Great Physician,” the answer is universally “Jesus Christ” or the “Lord.” How often is Jesus or the Lord described as “The Great Physician” in the Bible? In fact not even once in the Old or New Testament is Jesus or the Lord referred to as “The Great Physician.” Then how did our Lord become known as the “Great Physician” in a description universally recognized and accepted as fact by those of faith?
In the Old Testament in Exodus 15:26, the Lord told Moses, “…for I am the Lord, who heals you” confirming the role of the Lord as the Great Physician in our health. Laws of hygiene and healthy eating were given in detail to the Israelites by the Lord that are as applicable and valid today as in the time of Moses!
In more recent times in 1859 a Methodist clergyman, William Hunter, wrote “The Great Physician Now is Near” with the arrangement by J.H. Stockton. The first verse of the great hymn is as follows: “The great Physician now is near, The sympathizing Jesus; He speaks the drooping heart to cheer, Oh hear the voice of Jesus.”
Did you know the four Gospels in the New Testament – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – record more instances of Christ healing than of His preaching and teaching other subjects? The point is Christ’s ministry was one of preaching, teaching and healing – both the spirit and the body.
Jesus, as the Great Physician, emphasizes the importance of health in fulfilling the Christian mission when He said in Matthew 9:12 NIV, “On hearing this, Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.” Christ was pointing directly to the need for both spiritual and physical healing through HIM as the Great Physician in all aspects of life.
The preponderance of recognized miracles today occur in regard to health healings – the same as in the time Christ walked among us on earth. To teach the way to make prayer and the intervention of Christ in health issues a reality in the lives of listeners is a major mission of the Hope Inspiration Ministry and my Healthy, Wealthy and Wise Commentaries.
This HIM website provides many additional Bible verses that demonstrate Christ’s ministry provided not only physical, but spiritual advice related to health. Today, the medical and scientific community too often separate the spiritual from the physical aspects of health, but Frank Jordan attempts to integrate the best of holistic health nationwide with the spiritual benefits to health for listeners to Healthy, Wealthy and Wise with the input of both a legion of listeners and the HWW outstanding staff of health professionals.
The facts are Jesus Christ and the authors of the Bible have shown us how to live in physical and spiritual good health and how to address our health challenges in this life through His voice. H I M through radio, TV, writings videos, audio commentaries and symposiums seeks to deliver that spiritual prescription to you and the nation with outstanding health professionals always directed by the health wisdom of “The Great Physician.” H I M is guided by the great Prophet – not great profit, while bringing knowledge and understanding for both physical and eternal life!
“…for I, the Lord, am your healer.” Exodus 15:26
[Note from Frank: God did not say “I am one of your healers” or “I join your healers,” or “Go to your healers;” God simply stated, “…I, THE LORD, AM YOUR HEALER” – proving the claim of HIM being “The Great Physician!”]
Surely He hath borne our sicknesses and carried our sorrows. Isaiah 53:4 [“sickness” derived from kholee, also meaning infirmities; “sorrows” derived from makob, also meaning pains, diseases]
When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to HIM and He drove out the spirits with His word and healed all that were sick. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases.” Matthew 8:16-17
[Frank’s thought: “Life and death are under the guidance and direction of the Great Physician, including His prescription for everlasting life free from pain and suffering – a prescription which is ours for the taking if we only accept and allow it to be fulfilled. The Lord and Christ, together with the Holy Spirit, are the Holy Trinity and as one Godhead are indeed “The Great Physician” now and forever.]
The Great Physician is Head of the Medical Staff at the Trinity Clinic joined by His Son, the Great Healer Spiritually and Physically, with both on call 24 hours a day!
“Jesus said, “…I have come into this world, so that the blind will see… .” John 9:39
Christ came into this world so that we might see and live spiritually and physically without the blindness of this world – to eliminate suffering for eternity through HIM. God also tells us He will restore our health and heal our wounds as the Great Physician if it be His will, even if earthly medical healers have given up.
“This is what the Lord says,: ‘Your wound is incurable, your injury is beyond healing. There is no one to plead your cause, no remedy for your sore, no healing for you. All your allies have forgotten you; they care nothing for you. … But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds…'” Jeremiah 30:12-14, 17
“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” Psalms 118.8 (this Verse is in the exact center of the Bible! Psalms 117 is the shortest Chapter in the Bible and Psalms 119 is the longest Chapter!)
“The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid…The Lord is with me; He is my helper.” Psalms 118:6-7
Add the Holy Spirit who has been sent to deliver, to those who accept Him, the fruit of the Spirit, which today we would call emotional health and discipline through positive personality traits:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control.” Galatians 5:22-23
The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit practice in the Trinity Clinic delivering spiritual and physical health to believers with the ultimate power to spiritually heal. What a medical staff that practices “Holyistic” Medicine! At H I M we seek to deliver the message from the Trinity Clinic’ Physicians – combining spiritual and physical health wisdom, together with revealed science to better the lives of all we speak to through modern media.
“…for I am the Lord, who heals you.’ ” Exodus 15:26
Frank Jordan says, “If Life brings you to it; God will bring you through it!”
If from knowledge we can bring understanding and from that understanding a wisdom to provide a healthy body and spirit, then the Hope Inspiration Ministry ( H I M ) will have succeeded in its mission to provide a quality, not just quantity of life to you and to those you love.
If confronted with illness and disease, draw on your faith with a positive attitude and remember:
Disease is Limited: “Even in Darkness Light Comes Bursting In…”
- Disease is limited…
- It cannot cripple love,
- It cannot corrode deep faith,
- It cannot eat away the peace of Christ,
- It cannot destroy confidence,
- It cannot kill friendship,
- It cannot shut out pleasant memories,
- It cannot silence courage,
- It cannot invade the soul,
- It cannot reduce eternal life,
- It cannot quench the Spirit,
- It cannot lessen the power of the resurrection which assures us all as Christians a pain-free, disease-free body for eternity!
“Blessed are those who fear [respect and revere] the Lord who find great delight in His commands. …Even in darkness light comes bursting in for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous. …
They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. Their hearts are joyful and unafraid and secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.” Psalms 112:1-8 (Life Application, Modern and Living Bibles)
