“Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you.
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.”
Today, we have so many more problems than GOD ever intended. But, that’s NOT to say HE didn’t know what was to come! Oh, HE surely did. Why else would He address the word KEEP.
The word “keep” doesn’t mean to add or take away from. It’s an action word. So, it means to DO something.
The commandments are a perfect example. When we veer away we sin, which causes pain and suffering, even death.
My subject today is….KEEP.
I’m a chronic pain sufferer. And I’m caught in a vicious cycle. We are blessed to have doctors but they are not what they once were. The best physician is Jesus Christ and this is who I am turning to!
So, when we go to the doctor, we rely on them for honesty and allegiance to our health and quality of life. But, something went terribly wrong!
I recently learned that the TEXAS Medical Board has laws of practice that the licensed physician must adhere to just as a lawyer is taught. But, I heard a DOCTOR say this….he has TWO licenses so he can practice natural healing methods for his patients in another state.
Herbal medicine, also known as herbalism or botanical medicine, is a medical system based on the use of plants or plant extracts that may be eaten or applied to the skin. Since ancient times, herbal medicine has been used by many cultures throughout the world and is called naturopathic medicine.
So this doctor holds two licenses in two separate states so he can treat different people with different “advice”.
In TEXAS, there are perimeters that a doctor MUST adhere to. These are:
- Physical Therapy
That’s it. Period. They CANNOT veer from this path.
I’ve wondered many times why nothing else was addressed. Now, I know.
When you go to church, you see the world is mixed up! We are suppose to be set aside. There are many Scriptures which speak of being “set apart”.
Romans 12 (KJV)
CAUSE AND EFFECT
The Creator, GOD Almighty has set before us instructions in the WORD. The Bible is specific about many things, and we learn or don’t learn how to adhere to these instructions.
We all make mistakes, but when you fall down…GOD will help you back up.
Man’s drugs are only making us SICKER! Prescription drugs once held certain standards, if you will. They were specific in their methods and most times would solve many problems. When used correctly, and under a doctor’s supervision…most were safe and effective.
But, this is not true in so many cases now. Drugs are designed to give you MORE problems now. Let’s say you have arthritis. I’m not going to “pick on” any company or any drug…I list the first link….
Date listed for this article was November 16, 2004. Methotrexate is a treatment of choice for reducing pain and inflammation. But, there’s EVIDENCE that the drug can activate the virus and can increase the risk of LYMPHOMA and other similar cancers in some patients.
Let’s just say for the sake of ARGUMENT that this is NOT the only drug that is doing this!
So, a drug which would help alleviate pain is now causing cancer! That’s a huge jump!!
So, when a commercial comes on the TELLY! It will list the side effects. The first word that comes to mind? ASTOUNDING! These companies pay for allotted time advertisements. And there’s SO MANY adverse reactions that they have to SPEED UP the voice at the end of the commercial. The FDA began allowing drug makers to claim their products could EASE specific symptoms for specific conditions. And they INSIST the narrator rattle off the risks. Or worse…they write it in VERY SMALL structures below the adverts.
WHOA! Scary stuff.
Not only do they list “side effects” but listen closely because they can ALL LEAD TO DEATH.
So now we have companies who are the pusher-man delivering lethal drugs!
It was called “King’s Disease” because in ancient times only the royal and rich could eat in abundance. It quickly gained a reputation for being called, “King’s Disease”. Let’s be honest here, folks! Gluttony is a sign of a sick soul. There’s no diet pill, no gladiator-like personal trainer that can cure the diseases of the soul.
At one time I use to go to my granddaughter’s school to eat lunch with her. Now, she’s about to graduate! This was several years ago. I would bring a healthy salad and we would share it. It was delicious and so was the company. She’s a brilliant child with a brilliant future.
Upon exiting the lunchroom, I noticed a sign. “NO FOOD is to be taken out of the lunchroom.” At first, I thought well this was because of the pest control factor, etc. But, then I read an article about a mom who took out food served at her child’s school and had it tested. WOW! The amount chemicals were crazy!
Manufactured food has become dangerous. Made with chemicals and adding too much sugar/oil/fat to everything!!
Go to Church and what do you see? STARBUCKS!
I can’t remember reading any version of The Bible where it says Adam and Eve had coffee and donuts for breakfast before communion with GOD!!!
Here’s the truth!
TOO much, TOO often, TOO late.
TOO MUCH FAT! TOO MUCH SUGAR! TOO MUCH OIL!
It comes down to this!!!!!
Cause and effect.
Food has a life process. 3 stages:
I once heard a nutritionist say, when you go shopping at the grocery store…don’t go down the isles. The perimeter of the store has the healthy food, for the most part. It’s true.
If it comes out of a BOX, or BAG, or CAN…beware.
Shapes of food:
*Celery is shaped like a bone and it helps the bones
*Carrots, when cut look like eyes and it helps the eyes
*Walnut, when you look at the shape is like a brain
*Avocado, cut open resembles a pregnant woman
TWINKIES? COFFIN SHAPED
Because they are full of poisons. If you open a Twinkies wrapper that was made in 1970’s and it’s still edible, that’s a sign!
Or…go to McDonalds and order a fries and burger. Place it on the counter and let it begin to ferment. It DOES NOT ferment. It looks the same even after days, or weeks, or months!
Even those who believe they can pray over their food before eating and it will be okay? Praying will NEVER make Twinkies good for you!
I’m not a doctor. But, common sense has gone out the window, folks. We’re putting our trust in everything but GOD!
Read The Bible.
Listen to GOD.
KEEP HIS WORD.
