Hello dear friends
Let me tell you a little story. It’s not new and you have probably heard it before: Millions and millions of people have died for their faith and belief in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Every single one of those people had a life to live, with daily duties, comforts of home, family and friends.
But despite these millions and millions of murders over the centuries, and yes even today, more believers keep popping up. You see the enemy tries to destroy all those who “...keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation 14:12. But he will never succeed, because God is in control, and although there will be rough times ahead and sooner than later, God has already won the battle.
And here’s another story. This one is about healing plants that Jesus has left behind for us. These plants hold secret healing in their leaves, often their flowers and roots too. I believe these plants will be valuable for true Bible believers seeking health, as more usual avenues of healing are no longer available, or no longer effective.
These healing plants are killed in the millions too. Unbelievable amounts of money all around the world are spent on poisons every year to kill these plants. Farmers, households, businesses and governments, all spend big money to kill these plants.
The problem is, the poisons used to kill these plants also begin to kill the living organisms in the soil, and seep down into streams and rivers, and further down into deep underground water. Most toxic poisons are not water soluble but one is. Glyphosate is water soluble, which means every time someone sprays, 99.9% of the spray wends its way into the waterways of our world. That’s right, just 0.1% of all Roundup used hits its target plant.1
In fact, our world is awash with thousands of poisons. So, not only are the plants killed, but the living soil given to us by our Creator God is killed too, waterways, and insects, birds, fish and animals, and yes, humans too.
But you know what? Just as true Bible believers can’t be completely wiped out, the healing plants that Jesus Christ left behind can’t be destroyed either. Perhaps one day soon we will notice and learn about them, and use them for healing. Perhaps you are using one of Jesus’ gifts already.
I think Jesus has been very, very clever and very, very kind to us. We call these plants weeds, and destroy them. But if you flip this idea over, and look for God’s way, you might discover a stunning truth: These plants have spread all over the planet, as part of God’s plan to provide simple, free healing for all people. Healing leaves, roots and flowers.
And ALL of them have a touch or more of bitterness about them. Have you ever wondered why that might be? Isn’t that an interesting thought?
