Originally, this page was created after I started the Angel of Healing Fund, however, after I closed the fund I accidentally removed this page too.
I have re-posted this page because Jesus has helped me through the Angel of Healing as I explain in the last section, and I believe that he will be dispatched to you too, all you have to do is ask Jesus for his help.
Archangels are the Chief Messengers of the Sovereign LORD of the universe.
The Roman Catholic Church identifies Raphael as 'Saint Raphael the Archangel.'
However, unlike most saints, Raphael was never a human being, although he did disguise himself as one in the Book of Tobit, he has been declared a saint in honor of his work in helping humanity.
Raphael is one of the seven angels who stand in the presence of the LORD, and he is the principle healer in the angelic realm.
Raphael's name is a combination of two Hebrew words: “Rapha” (physician, healer) and “el” (God), and when joined 'Raphael' means 'God Heals.'
The word 'Archangel' is derived from the Greek word archi which means chief, principal or to have authority over others of their class, and angelos means 'Messenger of God.'
This translates to mean that for an individual to receive an angel's
help, he/she would need pray to the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
Philip (a disciple of Jesus) said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work."
As messengers, all Angels deliver prayers to Jesus, and they deliver his response to us.
However, praying directly to the Archangel Raphael for answers to your prayers will get you no-where, Raphael receives his
power from Jesus, he is a vessel for Jesus to bring healing to those who ask Jesus for help.
The Holy Bible states the following about the role of angels in the lives of those who have received the salvation of Jesus Christ.
"for the angels are only spirit messengers sent out to help and care for those who are to receive his salvation."
To receive Raphael's help in your prayer, an individual must pray to Jesus Christ and ask for Raphael to deliver the answer to your prayer, there is no other way to receive the Raphael's help.
One way to know that Jesus has dispatched the Archangel Raphael to deliver the answer to your prayer is that you may have instances of seeing Emerald Green, which is the color associated with Raphael the 'Angel of Healing.'
Seeing emerald green is just one of the many ways of
knowing Jesus heard your prayer and is answering it by sending Raphael
to help you.
Below, are examples of God's blessings delivered through Raphael that are recorded in different religious scriptures.
In the Catholic and Orthodox 'Book of Tobit,' which is a book of scripture that is part of the biblical canon, God sends the archangel Raphael, disguised as a human, as an answer to the prayers of two faithful souls: Tobit and Sara.
Tobit prayed to the LORD for his sight back because he had been stricken with blindness in a freak accident.
Sara prayed for God's help in finding lasting love because she was cursed by a demon who killed all of her husbands on their wedding night, seven in total.
The day after his prayer, Tobit sent his son Tobias, and his dog, out to collect silver coins which he had loaned to someone.
Shortly before Tobias set out on his journey, God sent Raphael, disguised as a human, to be a helpful traveling companion for the young man.
(People often pray to the LORD for the Archangel Raphael's help and protection while traveling because of how God sent him to help and protect Tobias in his travels.)
On their journey, Tobias and the Raphael caught a large fish, in the waters of the river Tigris, that tried to attach Tobias.
Tobias ate his portion of the fish, Raphael pretended to eat his, after Tobias finishes eating, Raphael tells Tobias to keep the organs of the fish for later use.
As they continue on their journey, Raphael tells Tobias about a good woman named Sara and that he should meet her.
is first excited about meeting Sara, but he becomes discouraged after
he finds out about the curse against her, and her seven dead husbands.
Raphael encourages Tobias to trust in the LORD and convinces him to meet Sara.
After they meet and fall in love, Sara becomes worried that Tobias will have the same fate of her previous husbands, after they wed.
Raphael, still disguised as a human, tells Tobias to throw the heart and liver of the fish they killed into a fire and that the smell would drive the demon that is cursing Sara away.
So, Tobias threw the organs into the fire, then Sara walked through the smoke, causing the demon to leave her alone.
The truth to all the healing is that it came from the LORD's divine power delivered through his angelic messenger Raphael.
Raphael gave Tobias the knowledge as to how to drive the demon out of Sara using the heart and liver of the fish.
(The LORD will send the Archangel Raphael, when asked, to give individuals knowledge for them to help themselves on how to heal, as an answer to their prayers.)
Furthermore, after Tobias threw the fish's organs into the fire to drive the demon out of Sara, it was Raphael who bound the demon.
As seen in the painting above by Jan Steen, titled: 'Tobias and Sarah in Prayer with the Angel Raphael and the Demon' the Archangel Raphael is revealed as the one who binds the demon, after the smell of the burning organs drove it out of Sara.
In addition, it was Raphael who told Tobias how to heal his father's eyesight using the fish's gallbladder.
Raphael shows Tobias how to make the ointment with the fish's gallbladder that heals his father, Tobit's eyesight.
When these acts of healing were taking place, Raphael could not disclose his true identity to keep from frightening his companions.
Near the end of the story, the Archangel Raphael reveals himself to Tobit as One of the Seven Angels who stand before the Lord.
12) Tobit, when you and Sarah prayed to the Lord, I was the one who brought your prayers into his glorious presence. I did the same thing each time you buried the dead.
13) On the day you got up from the table without eating your meal in order to bury that corpse, God sent me to test you. 14) But he also sent me to cure you and to rescue your daughter-in-law, Sarah, from her troubles.
15) I am Raphael, one of the seven angels who stand in the glorious presence of the Lord, ready to serve him.
17) But Raphael said to them;
18) He wanted me to come and help you; I did not come on my own. So sing God's praises as long as you live.
19) When you thought you saw me eating, I did not really eat anything; it only seemed so.
While you are on this earth, you must praise the Lord God and give him
thanks. Now I must go back to him who sent me. Write down everything
that has happened to you.
22) They began to sing hymns of praise, giving thanks for all the mighty deeds God had done while his angel Raphael had been with them.
In the New Testament's Book, the Gospel of John, although it does not name him the Archangel Raphael is believed
to be the angel who healed by stirring the waters at the Pool of
For an angel went
down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then
whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well
of whatever disease he had.
- John 5:4
In the ancient Jewish 'Book of Enoch,' the Archangel Raphael is
mentioned by name several times.
Raphael is referenced in the book with the archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Phanuel.
8. After this I besought the angel of peace, who proceeded with me, to explain all that was concealed. I said to him, Who are those whom I have seen on the four sides, and whose words I have heard and written down? He replied, The first is the merciful, the patient, the holy Michael.
9. The second is he who presides over every suffering and every affliction of the sons of men, the holy Raphael. The third, who presides over all that is powerful, is Gabriel. And the fourth, who presides over repentance, and the hope of those who will inherit eternal life, is Phanuel. These are the four angels of the most high God, and their four voices, which at that time I heard.
The names of the archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael are also found in the fourth order of the Mishna, called the Nezikin, which is part of the Talmud, a central text of mainstream Judaism.
Found in the volume of Bava Metzia, the three archangels appear to Abraham on the plains of Mamre.
Michael, the greatest of the archangels, walked in the middle, with Gabriel to his right and Raphael to his left. All three angels were commanded to carry out a specific mission.
Gabriel's mission was to destroy Sodom. Michael's mission was to inform Sarah that she would give birth to Isaac in a year's time.
Raphael's mission was to heal Abraham (from his recent circumcision) and save Lot.
Rashi writes, "Although Raphael's mission included two tasks, they were considered a single mission since they were both acts that saved people."
Raphael is the patron of doctors, nurses, health care workers, pharmacists, the blind, ill, sick, disabled or mentally ill; people suffering from nightmares; travelers, couples who need their relationship to be healed, and any one needing help, guidance or protection.
What does this mean?
If you are one of these individuals or having issues with one of these matters, Raphael will intercede for you in making sure your prayer will be received by Jesus and answered. Plus, he will be in charge of how Jesus message will be received by you.
Raphael works to heal people's body, mind, soul, and spirit so they can enjoy peace and good health to the fullest extent of God's will for them.
Through Jesus Christ nothing is impossible, and the Archangel Raphael can bring healing through instant and miraculous healing.
However, many times Raphael brings his healing through divine guidance that will require you to listen to your intuition, gut feelings, or an inner voice that will direct you to take action for yourself to help you find the healing you seek.
The archangel Raphael's angelic color is 'Emerald Green' those who experience his help often see more occurrences of this color, in unexpected ways.
I'll share with you one of my own instances of seeing 'Emerald Green'
after I prayed to Jesus to send the Archangel Raphael to help my father
come through a cancer surgery successfully, as told in the section
below titled: How the Angel of Healing Cancer Research Fund Got its Name.
Weeks before my Dad had a tumor removed from his liver, I had been praying to Jesus Christ to send the Archangel Raphael to help my Dad's tumor to stop growing, and not to spread.
The night before, I drove my Dad down to the hospital to have the tumor in his liver removed, I couldn't sleep.
I remember being on YouTube watching some the latest videos of those I subscribe to, and I kept having Mount Saint Helen's Eruption videos showing up on the right side column, next to the video I was watching.
I hadn't watched any volcano videos, so I didn't know why they kept being recommended to me, but I clicked on one and watched a full documentary on the 1980 eruption, and it ended up putting me to sleep.
The next day, as I was in the hospital waiting room reading a travel magazine about Maine, the U.S. State, to help the time pass.
As I was flipping through the pages, I came across an advertisement for a ring with a big Green Emerald with the caption "Made from Mt. Saint Helens ash" on it.
Helenite (wiki-link) is the name of the green emerald that can only be created from the ash of the Mount Saint Helens 1980 eruption.
I believe that seeing the green emerald was Jesus's way of letting me know he had heard my prayers, and the Angel of Healing was close, and delivered the answer to my prayer.
My Dad's cancer surgery was successful, and he came through the surgery so well that I drove him home on the same day.
Just to reiterate, the advertisement I saw came out of a travel magazine
about Maine, I never thought I would ever see anything about Mt.
Saint Helens in this magazine, let alone learning about a green emerald
made from its eruption.
You can start a prayer by asking that the Archangel Raphael to deliver your prayer to Jesus, or...
Pray to the
Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ for help and ask him to send the Archangel Raphael with the answer to your prayer.
Jesus said the following:
"And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it."
Jesus goes on to say the following in the next chapter of John:
"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you"
To those who may not be a Christian,
Please give Jesus a chance to help you.
Before you give up on this course of healing, with an honest heart ask Jesus Christ (without doubt) to send the Archangel Raphael, the principal angel of healing, to you.
Have Faith and Expect and Answer!
If you do this and you will most likely be surprised with the results if you open your heart and mind to Jesus for a blessing.
Furthermore, if you did decide to ask Jesus for help and asked him to send his Principal Angel of Healing, Raphael, to deliver your blessing, and you received it, Thank Jesus for the response.
Also, you can consider the answer to your prayer as an invitation into the Kingdom of God, and when/if you are ready, ask Jesus into your heart by accepting him as your Lord and Savior, ask him to forgive of your sins and repent of them.
If you do this you will receive the Holy Spirit as a gift to support you and help you in faith for the rest of your life.
The truth is the Good News. When you heard the truth, you put your trust in (Jesus) Christ. Then God marked you by giving you His Holy Spirit as a promise.
The Holy Spirit was given to us as a promise that we will receive everything God has for us. God’s Spirit will be with us until God finishes His work of making us complete. God does this to show His shining-greatness.
