GOD’S WORD FOR JUNE 2
Revelation 22:2 ~ ~ “in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
These verses both describe the scene after the “Day of the Lord” when the unrighteous are judged and the joy and peace remaining for the 1000 year reign of Christ. This, in many ways, will bring back the scene in the Garden before the fall of man. Genesis 2:15 says, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” Every tree (plant) was for food or for healing.
Since God created all the plants at one time, before the fall, I believe there still is a plant for every healing need, IF we had the knowledge of which ones, and the wisdom of how to safely use them. Adam had that knowledge, I’m sure, because God taught him all things he needed to know. He had a high intellect, and could remember all the names of the animals and all that God taught him. But, when they had to leave the garden, eventually all that was lost, even though I believe the same plants grew outside the garden,
“TEA TIME!” One of those plants is green tea. A chemical in the tea helps keep bacteria at bay in the mouth, reducing cavities by keeping the bacteria from attaching to the surface of teeth.
Now they have found that there are substances in the tea that actually kill the bacteria also, as well as molds, three types of yeasts, and 8 kinds of bacteria elsewhere. To top it off, it also helps fight digestive issues and even acne!
Three more plants that contain these same chemicals are coriander, sage, and thyme. Apparently the Isrealites had coriander seeds at the time of the wilderness trek, because they compared the manna to coriander seed. (Exodus 16:31 and Numbers 11:7). It would surely be interesting to know what other plants we’re ignoring, that could heal!!!!
