GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 27
GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 27 ~ ~ Matthew 16:26~ ~ “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
There is a plant grown in Africa called the warburgia. The bark is sold to relieve toothaches, fevers, constipation, and the taste of meat gone slightly sour.
Even though God gave us a wonderful immune system, if it is dragged down by an illness, it cannot do a good job fighting off other illnesses, including fungus.
Researchers discovered that two extracts from the warburgia bush can boost the effects of antibiotics. One of the extracts, coupled with an antibiotic used against yeast cells, resulted in a treatment that was 16 times more powerful than the antibiotic alone. Warburgia extracts also boosted antibiotics’ effects against various fungal infections, including the fungus that causes athlete’s foot.
How many medicines has our Creator hidden in the plants of the earth for us to discover? We can thank Him that, in His mercy, He has provided so many earthly remedies for the disease that has resulted because of sin. What is more important, however, is that we can thank Him for the forgiveness of sins that was won by Christ for us in His suffering and death.
The Book of Revelation tells us that the leaves from the tree of life will be for healing, so it is logical to assume that that same tree of life which was in the Garden of Eden was for healing for the animals and man. I believe there still are many plants for healing, if we only knew what they were and how to use them. After all, He equipped the animals for the world after sin degraded it from a paradise to a dark sinful, murderous dump. Why would He not have provided for man in the same way?
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
We need to thank Him daily for all He has provided for us, for now, and the future, especially eternal life with Him through Jesus our Lord and Savior.
