Bones and Herbs

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.

Bones and Herbs

Article#: 945

It's magnificently amazing. The beautiful Word of God is marvelous to behold. The more we discover in our search for an understanding of the intricacies of life, the more glorious God's inerrant Word performs. Carnal men have hoped that as science discovered more about life, the Bible would become irrelevant because of its inability to compete with "real truth." They also hoped that the masses would embrace the vacuous doctrine of Godless evolution—but just the opposite has and is occurring. Carnal "truth" has been forced to change its "truth" on a rather regular basis. This GodSaidManSaid irrefutable law needs repeating: Man's "truth" of yesterday is debunked by his "truth" of today, and man's "truth" of today will be debunked by his "truth" of tomorrow. But God's truth, as written in His magnificent Word, never changes.

Jesus said in Matthew 7:24-27:

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

GOD SAID, Job 20:11:

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

GOD SAID, Psalms 6:2:

Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 3:7-8:

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

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

GOD SAID, Isaiah 66:14:

And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

MAN SAID: God is simply a figment of uneducated man's imagination—a mythical figure, void of any scientific proof of His existence.

Now THE RECORD. Imagine, Scriptures recorded thousands of years ago continue to be vindicated by science's investigative eye. These discoveries are simply more proof that God is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

The Bible speaks of bones in a multifaceted way—surely more than something to stretch skin over or a place to hang one's organs. On this website, there are two features that deal specifically with the marvel of bones. They are "Bones" and "A Merry Heart or a Broken Spirit." Take a moment to review these life-changing messages.

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.

The following paragraphs from the January 2006 issue of Life Extension are taken from an article dealing with osteoporosis in men:

The human skeleton is the single largest organ system in the body. Composed of a complex mix of organic proteins and inorganic mineral crystals, bones are much more than just structural supports. Bones are the body's only reservoir of important minerals such as calcium and phosphorus, which are critical for virtually every other organ system. Calcium, for example, is used in every nerve and muscle cell in the body as a chemical signal. Phosphorous is used in every cell in the human body and is considered the universal energy "currency"; when fats, carbohydrates, and proteins are burned for energy, phosphate molecules move to or from carrier molecules to keep energy flowing. Levels of calcium and phosphorous must be precisely maintained to keep tissues working properly. Because there is no other internal storage area for these minerals, the skeleton functions as a strategic reserve, absorbing or releasing minerals as required to keep blood levels virtually constant. Bones are able to fulfill this function due to their amazing complexity.

To a structural engineer, bone would be considered a "composite" material, part mineral and part living tissue. It is formed mostly of calcium phosphate arranged in crystals called hydroxyapatite, embedded in a protein matrix primarily made of collagen. This arrangement is very similar to reinforced concrete, in which strong steel bars are embedded in weaker cement. Like reinforced concrete, bone has remarkable strength when it is compressed (for example, when it supports the normal weight of a person standing or moving). [End of quote]

The skeletal system, as the Bible teaches and as science has discovered, is not just a composite material, but is a living organism directly affected by spiritual input, whether good or bad. The following excerpt is from "A Merry Heart or a Broken Spirit" speaking directly of bone marrow:

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 marrow as 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 come 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, the red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the body and the white blood cells defend against disease; and both, as stated above, find their beginnings in moist bone marrow. [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 had 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 I heard what they said. They said, "The God of the Bible made me."

GOD SAID, Job 20:11:

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

GOD SAID, Psalms 6:2:

Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 3:7-8:

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

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

GOD SAID, Isaiah 66:14:

And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

MAN SAID: God is simply a figment of uneducated man's imagination—a mythical figure, void of any scientific proof of his existence.

Now you have THE RECORD.
