Literal Bones

The Bible teaches that bones are directly affected by sin, stress, anxiety, fear, grief, or conversely, by righteousness, peace, joy, hope, and faith. When the bones are affected, not only can bone density and bone marrow be affected, but many things in the body can also be affected, such as detoxification, calcium deposits, red blood cells, white blood cells, the lymphatic system, and much more that science has yet to discover.

Literal Bones

Article#: 1329

What if we told you we knew where you could get a set of supernatural eyes that would allow you to see the world and all your circumstances in a new and positive light, where absolutely everything works to your good, especially in the most negative situations? A prime example of these miraculous new eyes in action is in the very real and terminal matter of death. Man, his whole life long, is terrified by the prospect of death, but to those who possess the new set of eyes, the vision is different. Death is seen as graduation day. To the new eyes, death is seen as it is: the doorway to eternal life. God advertises this marvelous place the redeemed enter into in numerous places in the Word of God. Revelation 21: 1-7:

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Those involved in the study of quantum physics speculate of a parallel universe—or multi-verse—that is separated from our reality by the finest of membranes. Unbeknownst to most of them, they find themselves knocking on heaven’s door, but they can’t get in via scholarship. Only childlike faith opens the door. What separates the born-again from eternal life and the full realization of the Kingdom of God, which is already functioning on the globe, is the finest of membranes called death. New eyes can see it.

I Corinthians 15: 54-57:

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

That’s how the new set of eyes sees death, not with foreboding, but with excellent expectations.

GOD SAID, Psalms 35:10:

All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 3:8:

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 16:24:

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 17:22:

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

GOD SAID, Psalms 31:10:

His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.

MAN SAID: We are a sophisticated and scientific society. We have no need of the writings of ancient men who had no understanding of the human psyche and biology.

Now THE RECORD. The astounding literalness of the Word of God is magnificent. The childlike are admonished by unbelievers and told that we can’t take the Word of God literally. But literal it is—either literal physically or literal spiritually, and the switch to flip is readily apparent—and at the invisible molecular level, the interaction between spiritual and physical is truly staggering.

The unwashed clamor for truth, but when the truth is spoken or even displayed, their deaf ears and blind eyes holler, “that’s not the truth!” Welcome to GodSaidManSaid. This is feature article #590 that once again proves the full, inerrant veracity of the Word of God found in the majority-text King James Version of the Holy Bible. These features prove scholastically and pragmatically that the God of the Bible is the God of all. They are archived on GodSaidManSaid in text and streaming audio for the edification of the childlike and for ammunition in the battle for the souls of men. Every Thursday eve, God willing, they grow by one. Thank you for coming. We always look forward to your visit. All of your emails to GodSaidManSaid come before the Lord and we read many of them to the saints in the congregation. May the face of our God shine up on you with Light and Truth.

The Bible’s most amazing claims are scoffed at by the skeptics, but only by those who are willingly ignorant. On GodSaidManSaid, academic research confirms the following:

● God created the earth in six, literal, 24-hour days just over 6,000 years ago.

● God created light before the sun.

● The water canopy protected life from UV rays and allowed men to live an average of 911 years.

● All of mankind has its roots in one common father and mother.

● Man is made of dirt.

● The mother of all living was created from Adam’s rib.

● The serpent and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

● Eve and Adam ate the fruit.

● All of the earth was once vegetarian.

● The Garden of Eden was lost.

● The serpent was cursed to crawl on its belly.

● The entrance of the law of sin and death.

And that is just a short list of what is found in the first three chapters of the Bible, and literal they are.

The glorious, literal Word of God continues to amaze the children of faith and confound the unbelievers. Consider the issue of our bones.

The Bible teaches that bones are directly affected by sin, stress, anxiety, fear, grief, or conversely, by righteousness, peace, joy, hope, and faith. When the bones are affected, not only can bone density and bone marrow be affected, but many things in the body can also be affected, such as detoxification, calcium deposits, red blood cells, white blood cells, the lymphatic system, and much more that science has yet to discover.

The Scriptures teach that:

● Bones can be vexed;

● Depression affects bones;

● Envy can cause bones to rot;

● Bones can be made fat by a good report;

● Bones can speak of God’s glory;

● Bones can rejoice; and

● Bones are compared to an herb that can flourish.

Are we to take these Biblical positions as literal truth?

Proverbs 17:22 reads:

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

The bones in our bodies are key to excellent living and their role is much more than simply a structure to hang organs and flesh upon. Inside our bones is found a spongy, moist tissue called bone marrow where all of our body’s blood cells are produced. The blood cells begin life in the moist, narrow stem cells. These stem cells divide and form the various cells that make up our blood and immune system. Out of this moist bone marrow comes red blood cells which carry oxygen and nutrients to the body, and also the white blood cells that fight infection. Without bone marrow, there could be no human life.

The amazing bone is strong as steel but light as aluminum, and inside the cancellous bones of the ribs, vertebrae, sternum, and pelvis is bone marrow, a moist hive of activity. Imagine, two million red blood cells are being replaced every second and they’re being generated in the body’s bone marrow. So then, red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the body and the white blood cells defend against disease, and both find their beginnings in moist bone marrow.

New fields of study have arisen concerning white blood cells and immune system malfunction called “psychoneuroimmunology” or “neuroimmunomodulation.” It is now known that stress, depression, sorrow, grief, anger, and other negative thoughts have a direct negative effect on white blood cells, and happy, joyful, restful, positive thoughts have a direct positive effect on white and red blood cell production and activity. Remember, red blood cells bring oxygen and nutrients to the body and white blood cells defend it against disease and sickness, “but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” That’s what God’s Word says.

You’ll be amazed at what you read next. In an article in Psychology Today titled “The Blues are a Bone-Breaker,” research conducted by Dr. Ulrich Schweiger of the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Germany was cited. Schweiger measured bone density of 18 depressed, hospitalized men and women and another group of 21 patients who were free of depression. All were over the age of 40. The results were shocking. The research took place over a period of two years. At the end of two years, Schweiger compared the bone density of both groups. The depressed patients lost significantly more bone mass than the non-depressed. The following is a direct quote from Dr. Schweiger. He says, “[It provides] a vital link in explaining the increased mortality observed particularly in men with major depression.”

Another piece of research reported that 75% of our daily thoughts are negative, which cause a responding negative physical reaction. Remember, a broken spirit drieth up the bones, the manufacturing plant of red and white blood cells.

The following passage was reported in Energy Times:

Scientists investigating why people under chronic stress, such as those caring for someone with a degenerative disease, are especially prone to ill health recently closed in on an answer: Their bodies can’t produce enough white blood cells—called lymphocytes—to fight off invaders. [End of quotes]

How literal is Job 20:11: “His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.”

Scientists in the field of paleopathology, the study of ancient diseases, have discovered that bones also declare one’s sins even from the grave.

The following excerpts are from Wikipedia.org under the subject heading of “Paleopathology:”

Syphilis is a disease classified in a category of Treponemal disease. This group includes diseases like pinta, yaws, endemic syphilis, and venereal syphilis. These diseases have symptoms that include inflammatory changes in tissues throughout the body. Initially, the infected person may notice an area of inflammation at the site where the bacteria entered the body. Then, the individual can expect more widespread soft tissue changes, and lastly, the diseases start to affect the bones.

Bone changes can be seen in the archaeological record through lesions on the surface of the bone. In venereal syphilis, the bone change is characterized by damage to the knee and joints. The damaged joints can be the source of infection or they could be damaged because of disruption in the nervous systems and ability to feel. In the beginning stages of the disease, the bone forms small lesions on the skull and tibiae. These lesions are caused mostly by inflammation of the marrow. In the final stages of the disease, the bones start to be destroyed. Lesions that are formed tend to look similar to "worm holes" in the bone and are seen in the skull as well as large bones in the body. Most of the bone that is destroyed is due to secondary infections. [End of quote]

In Isaiah 66:14, God speaks of a time of great rejoicing, and in referring to bones, He says, “and when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb.” Bones flourishing like an herb? Relatively modern science has yet to begin to discover this amazing anatomical insight, yet this passage was written over 2,500 years ago. Only the Creator could know that bones and herbs grow and develop through a process of absorption, also known as osmosis. Yes, bones that rejoice flourish like an herb. Psalms 35:10: “All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee?” The bones are definitely talking and the childlike heard what they said.

When the bones are affected through either sin, stress, and grief, or righteousness, peace, and joy, the following are also affected, either negatively or positively:

● Bone density;

● Detoxification;

● Calcium deposits;

● Bone marrow;

● Red blood cells;

● White blood cells;

● Lymphatic system; and

● So much more that science has yet to discover.

Thousands of years before man knew some of the reasons why, God revealed the secret for the upkeep of your bones in your owner’s manual, the Holy Bible, which is the literal truth.

Put on the mind of Christ and your bones will rejoice!

How beautiful and literal is the inerrant Word of God, surely a place to build a life—one that will last forever.

GOD SAID, Psalms 35:10:

All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

GOD SAID, Psalms 51:8:

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 3:8:

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 16:24:

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 17:22:

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

GOD SAID, Psalms 31:10:

For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.

GOD SAID, Job 20:11:

His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.

MAN SAID: We are a sophisticated and scientific society. We have no need of the writings of ancient men who had no understanding of the human psyche and biology.

Now you have THE RECORD.
