In last week’s Health Tip, we learned from the following verses what God had to say about man’s wisdom 2,000 years ago and the healing results the medical doctors were obtaining:
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.” (I Corinthians 3:19-20)
“And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse. . .” (Mark 5:25-26)
In spite of all the claims of new knowledge and advancements in medical care, the health of the American people of today continues to decline. All the while, the cost of government sanctioned and protected health care spirals out of control.
We will next consider: Why Drugs Cannot Heal Anyone of Anything; and over the next few weeks deal with Healing Alternatives to Drugs; and God’s Provision – Self-Healing
Why Drugs Cannot Heal Anyone Of Anything
Last week we saw the horrendous results a few people experienced going the medical route with their cancer, using such modalities as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
In this Health Tip I will expand on the dangers inherent in ALL DRUGS!
The only substances God designed the human physical body to ever have placed within it are the foods God designed the human physical body to be nourished with. God clearly defines what foods these were in Genesis 1:29 – exclusively living plant foods created by God designed to nourish the human physical body He created.
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward of Eden: and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food…”(Genesis 2:7-9)
“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed (vegetable), which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. (FOOD)” (Genesis 1:29)
Following creation, as long as man consumed only these living (raw) plant foods, there was not a single recorded instance of sickness in the Bible.
However, once man started to deviate from God’s original Genesis 1:29 diet of raw garden foods (by adding meat in Genesis 9:3) and began cooking his food, sickness began to manifest and the lifespan began to shorten.
It’s interesting to note that every animal in the wild (both herbivore and carnivore) instinctively knows to consume all its food in its natural raw form as served up by nature — just as God provided and intended.
As long as these animals in the wild remain on the raw foods God intended for them, sickness is almost non-existent. But if we domesticate a wild animal – dog, cat, etc. — feed them boxed, canned, and cooked foods, they develop cancers, arthritis, and many of the other degenerative diseases common to man.
Drugs Offer No Nourishment
Drugs offer no nourishment whatsoever to the body. They are toxic chemical poisons that become extremely destructive when placed into the body. Any substance introduced into the body — by injection (vaccinations), absorption, respiration or ingestion — that cannot be utilized as food becomes a poison when placed into the body.
When these poisonous drugs are placed into the body, the body’s self-defense mechanism (placed there by God) is activated. The body seeks the removal of this toxic substance as rapidly as possible. All such actions by the body are normal, but also damaging to the body.
Medical doctors use a system called allopathic medicine in an effort to remove the symptoms of disease. “Allopathic” or “Allopathy” is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as: “the method of treating disease by the use of agents that produce effects different from those of the disease.”
The Bible Warns About The Use of Drugs
Rather than strengthening the body’s immune system with good nutrition to assist the body in fighting the disease, the approach of allopathy is to introduce a foreign substance (a toxic drug) into the body to “produce effects different from those of the disease”.
Here is what God has to say concerning DRUGS:
“… for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy SORCERIES were all nations deceived.” (Revelation 18:23)
The word “sorceries” comes from the Greek word, “pharmakeia” from which we derive the words “pharmacy”, “pharmaceutical” and “pharmacist”. And what does a “pharmacist” dispense? Drugs! Here’s how Webster’s definition of a “pharmacist”: “A person licensed to prepare and dispense DRUGS…”
The Bible tells us that in the end times, and surely we are living in such days, “all nations will be deceived by these SORCERIES” — by these DRUGS!
When a person goes to a doctor, what do they almost always leave the doctor’s office with? Is it not with a DRUG prescription, to be taken to a pharmacist who fills that DRUG prescription?
While a drug may help relieve a symptom temporarily (high fever, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, headache, inability to sleep, and we could go on), every drug has a toxic effect upon the body, called an “adverse reaction”.
When you hear a drug being promoted on the television to relieve a particular symptom, have you ever taken note of the potential side effects or adverse reactions the drug might produce? Some of the potential adverse reactions can even include “death.”
As you read the ads in various magazines, have you ever taken note of the pretty picture and words telling of the positive effect a particular drug might have upon a symptom, and then turn the page and read two pages of small print telling of the adverse reactions that drug might produce?
On my desk sits a copy of the “Physicians’ Desk Reference” manual (PDR). It was given to me by one of the 65 medical doctors who have gone through Health Minister training here at Hallelujah Acres. This particular PDR (1997) has 2,998 pages of the potential adverse side effects a patient might experience from each of the drugs a doctor can prescribe.
Drugs Do Not Heal
Drugs are incapable of healing anyone of anything! Drugs are only capable of producing additional disease (or “side effects”) for the body to contend with. This makes it increasingly difficult for the body to heal.
Sadly, most doctors do not seek the cause of an illness or seek to remove that cause so that the body can heal itself. Instead the protocol is to treat the symptom with a toxic drug.
Because the symptom is often relieved by the drug, the patient thinks they are on the right track to improved health. They don’t realize that the drug has the potential of creating new symptoms for which additional drugs will often be needed. Treating symptoms with drugs will never heal anyone of anything, but rather exacerbate the problem.
The Only Solution To Disease
The only way to remove symptoms permanently is to remove the CAUSE of the symptom, and start nourishing the body with the nutrients it needs to rebuild its immune system.
Once the symptom has been removed and the immune system rebuilt with good nutrition, the body’s self-healing mechanism, placed there by God, will kick in, enabling the body to literally heal itself of whatever the physical problem (in most instances).
Next week, the good Lord willing, we will explore non-toxic alternatives to the drugs being used today to deal with physical problems. I trust you will join us and that you are finding the information in this series as interesting and informative as much as I am researching and writing it.
