Heel, heal and hill

The relation to the words heel, heel command, heal and hill. It is amazing how we can look at these 4 words that sound exactly the same and are more related than you even think. The heel of the Messiah has bruised the head of the serpent. Dog, “man’s best friend”, is the perfect example of companionship and devotion that should show us how man should be devoted to God and how we should come at His beckon call. We should be by His side no matter what. Jesus is the greatest physician we should ever want. He is our healer. And finally, when we heel to His command and take up our cross and are washed white as snow, we become the light that is in Jesus that is set on the hill for all to see. Let those who have ears to hear, hear and those who have eyes see, see. Amen.


And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (Genesis 3:15)

The heel is the portion of the human body that lies at the bottom-rear part of each foot. Its exterior shape is formed by the calcaneus, also known as the heel bone. The heel bone is the largest bone in the foot. Achilles’ heel was the only place the great warrior could be wounded in such a way that the injury wouldn’t heal.


And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.(Luke 9:23)

The Heel command means for your dog to get by your side and stay by your side. If you are moving and call “Heel,” the dog walks at your side. If you are standing still and call “Heel,” the dog comes to your side and sits.


And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.  And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. (Luke 8:43)

The meaning of HEAL is to make free from injury or disease : to make sound or whole. The Proto-Germanic word khailaz, which means “to make whole” is the root of both heal and the closely related word health.


Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (Matthew 5:14)

A hill is a piece of land that rises higher than everything surrounding it.
