This page is dedicated to personal health and spiritual growth. I will provide helpful and informative info on this page to steer us in the right direction. Why do I have such a passion for health? Several years ago I was dying. The doctors misdiagnosed me a few times and failed to cure me. I took different medications for pain and none of them worked. The doctors took out my gallbladder thinking that would do the trick. That didn't work either. I cried out to God for help, to heal me, or take me out and get it over with. The pain was so great. I saw my life flash before my eyes and prepared myself to "leave this world behind". But His still small voice told me His grace was sufficient for me. The Lord in His incredible mercy, healed me of the pain and began showing me more how to take care of my health. God showed me that through diet, cleansing the body, fasting, and by the word of God, that disease can be reversed and healed. I used to be sick all the time with the flu or sore throats. Since my journey to health, I haven't been sick for several years with a cold or a flu. The Lord also spoke to me when the Tsunami hit in Sri Lanka, that disease would creep over to our part of the country. He spoke, " Build up the immune system." The answers are all out there, my friends. God has provided the cure, and all we must do is have faith, patience, discipline, and endurance to win the race.
God bless you on your journey,
A NOTE ON HEALTH AND HEALING
This is a touchy subject, I know. But when I see people I care about suffer, and why they might not get healed, this is my opinion in a nut shell.
The Lord gave us the ability to make wise or unwise choices of what to put in our bodies. You reap what you sow, right? So we can experience health blessings by being obedient to God's dietary laws. Because He did not create white flour, or white sugar, or chocolate with wax in it, or Crispy Crème Donuts. Processed foods are adulterated foods. They are counterfeit foods. Not the real stuff. Man has perverted the real stuff for money's sake - GREED. You can't serve two masters, the God of Love, and the god of money. You can only serve one. And satan is the god of this world.
Processed foods reek havoc on our bodies and cause all kinds of problems: cancer, alzhiemers, diseases, etc. So many people cry out to God to be healed, and yes, sometimes He heals them. But also, the scripture says, "Faith without works is dead." (James 2:17). So therefore we should assume responsibility for our own health if we wish to live as "spiritually and wonderfully made" as the Lord intended us to be. So maybe when it seems as if the Lord is not answering our prayers to be healed, He is waiting for us to be obedient to His plan. In Jer. 10, it says, "Do not learn the way of the nations." It will be harmful to us. If we do it God's way, we will eat "good fruit", we will reap the "blessing". If we go the way of the world, we eat "bad fruit", which I believe is the cursing.
God also made our bodies to heal themselves, didn't He? When we get a cut on our leg it heals in a few days, doesn't it? Some may heal faster than others. Nevertheless, it still heals. When we put the right stuff into our bodies, like whole foods (with the enzymes still in tact), organic and unadulterated, the nutrients are rightly proportioned, and our bodies say " YES!! ", and it can do its job to carry the right proportion of nutrients to where it needs to go. Our bodies start healing and repairing itself from the inside out. Then our immune system is built up so that it can fight off disease. Our body is happy, and we feel better. What we eat also affects our minds. For example, excessive amounts of white sugar causes depression, foggy mind, unclear thinking, inability to focus, and hyperactivity in children, violent behavior, etc. White sugar also feeds cancer. The list goes on and on…….
God does not want us to be ignorant. He does not want us to "perish for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6). We must always seek the Lord FIRST in all our ways. The bible says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom….."
Psa 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Pro 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Like Asa in 2 Chronicles 16:12, did not revere the Lord and His ways. "In the 39th year of his reign, Asa became diseased in His feet----until his disease became very severe; yet in his disease He did not seek the Lord, but relied on the physicians." Please do not misunderstand me. I am not saying we should not go to physicians! Luke in the bible was a physician. And God uses physicians and has given them skills for different things. They have their place. But we should seek the Lord FIRST in ALL things, especially in our disease, amen? And, "if any man lacks wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all men liberally and ungrudgingly…but let him ask in faith, not doubting…." (James 1:5-6).
In conclusion, we can have faith to eat all things, yes. Things in themselves are fine. But it's what man does to it. And in Mark 16:18, " and IF they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not harm them." God does not call us to try such experiments, and we are not to tempt Him. I don't believe in what the "snake handlers" do by tempting God. That is disrespecting His creation. And you should not tempt God by putting yourself in harm's way. You mess with a snake, you may get bit.
