The Bible is a powerful healer

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart…” (Hebrews 4:12, the Holy Bible).
TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID FOOD POISONING: Food poisoning is again back in the news, as reports from Bgy. Vicente, Banga, South Cotabato, named nine people who ate cake from a relative’s birthday party Sunday night (November 08, 2015) fell ill, all of them getting dizzy and afflicted with vomiting.
They are said to have already been restored in good health, but, as Christmas season is approaching, some reminders are in order to avoid being poisoned. First, always thank God for the food and drinks that are to be eaten and drank. Thanking God for the food and drinks means we acknowledge the generosity of God towards us.
Then, we should also ask that the food and drinks we will be eating and drinking should become the body and blood of Jesus, our God and Savior, in accordance with His command. We are told that if we ask that the food and drinks we eat and drink become the body and blood of Jesus, sickness will not afflict us, allowing us to live longer lives.
THE BIBLE IS A POWERFUL HEALER: I commiserate with the family of former movie actress Amalia Fuentes, who was reported to have suffered a stroke the other week while she was vacationing in South Korea, causing her to be ill and bedridden. I can also understand the family’s appeal for prayers for her, to ask for divine intervention towards her healing.
That notwithstanding, I have a suggestion: Amalia’s family should endeavor to read the Bible to her while she is fighting for her life. The Bible itself confirms, in its Romans 1:16, that it is the power of God for the salvation of all who believes in Him. Then, the Word of God can enter the deepest parts of our bodies, where our bones and marrows and our souls and spirits separate.
This means the Word of God alone is a powerful and potent medicine. It can heal, it can strengthen our feeble bones and flesh, and can even cleanse our soul and spirit of our sinful nature. Of course, medicines and doctors can help, but it is actually God who holds each flesh and each drop of our blood in our bodies. Because He loves us so much, He is going to heal us!
FOR A TRULY HONEST 2016 ELECTION, FILIPINOS MUST READ THE BIBLE: In fact, it we wish to have a really honest, orderly, and peaceful elections, we can also turn to the Bible. If our people will only humble themselves and pray, and seek God through His Word, and turn away from their sins, then God will listen from heaven, forgive our sins, and remove the curses in our lives.
If Filipinos will only care to discern what the Bible is saying about who should we install as our officials, particularly those who are to assume power in 2016, and obey the requirements laid down by it for choosing our leaders, it is a certainty that only the truly godly will be elected.
If the godly and those who truly fear and love God will be installed as our officials, graft and corruption in government will stop. Abusive officials will be gone in a flash, and our people will be imbued with a new sense of hope for a truly better and greater Philippines.
