  "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness

Arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up

As the calves of the stall" [Malachi 4:2.]

In psalm 19 The sun is described as being like a    "bridegroom coming out of his chamber as a strong man ready to run a race" [Psalm 19:5.] and in the next verse we read ... "and nothing is hid from the heat thereof".

Jesus is this Sun of Righteousness, and as we come to Him with an open and contrite heart He will Arise and bring light and warmth and healing to every sore and wound of heart and mind, and as in Psalm 19 which says ... "nothing is hid from the heat thereof"; in other words The Lords healing will be TOTAL. The man bound in chains in Luke 8 whose name was legion "because many devils were entered into him" when he fell down before Jesus, The Sun of Righteousness arose with Glorious and wonderful healing for this poor man and he was later found  "sitting at Jesus feet, clothed and in his right mind" [Luke 8:35.] and when the man wanted to follow and  be with Jesus, The Lord said to him,  "Return to thine own house, and show how great things God hath done for thee, and  he went his way, and published throughout the whole City, how Great things Jesus had done for him" [Luke 8:39.] This "Sun of righteousness" arose for this great need and there is nothing that The Lord will not arise with healing for you, just as this man was found "in his right mind" and that was because The Sun of righteousness can make our "mind" right and at rest completely about everything, Praise the Lord!

The wings speak of The Lord's ability to lift us up to great heights and mount up above every high obstacle. David said concerning the greatness of The Lord .."Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is HIGH I cannot attain unto it" [Psalm 139:6.]

To go forth as the "calves of the stall" speaks of great nourishment and care and keeping; a calf in a stall is living the High Life, and so it is for us also, when The Lord lifts us up we are nourished and strengthened like the prodigal son, with "The Best".

Jesus Loves you.
