Just before our 4 and a half  month old son Joshua went to the hospital for open heart surgery, God gave me a dream... "I was in a room in a hospital waiting to talk to the doctor; a nurse came in and examined my son on a hospital table. She listened to his heart and then left. A few minuets later, she came in with some operating utensils and a towel, in which she laid my son on. In the back ground I could hear a song faintly playing...On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand...all other ground is sinking sand... Once again she laid my son on the examining table and the doctor came in, and I couldn't understand what he was saying. I just kept looking at his hands; they were the biggest hands I had ever seen. He kept smiling and talking even though I did not understand.

When he left the nurse returned one more time and she was softly singing that same song that was faintly playing in the hall, and she kept singing louder and louder..."ON CHRIST THE SOLID ROCK I STAND, ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND, ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND..." When I awoke, and asked the Lord what this dream meant, He told me because I was standing on the solid rock, (which is Him), whether it was nurses that were taking care of our son or the doctor operating on him, it would be through His hands. It would be His hands when I leave him, not knowing what the outcome will be. His hands will be guiding the doctors hands and His hands will be holding me.

This operation lasted 7 and half hours, Joshua was one of the first to go in and have surgery. As we (my husband and I) watched on a monitor we could see all the names as the operations were completed and the children going into recovery. Joshua was the last on the list. I kept hearing in my heart that scripture... the last shall be first...

Matthew 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

I know God chooses the things that we go through for a purpose and I know that Joshua is chosen for a special calling that only he can do. I know that His hands brought me through so many things in this life and I need to hold on to those hands everyday of my life, these are the hands that have set me free, these are the hands that have delivered me, these are the hands that healed me, and these are the hands that keep me. Thank You Jesus for your hands!

In our human beginnings way back in the Garden of Eden, the very first sin that was ever recorded had to do with food. Interesting enough, a certain food (fruit) affected the entire human race right from its infancy and even brought separation from God. There are many chapters throughout the Bible written on what is good to eat and what is not good for us to eat. Why would God care so much about what goes into our bodies if it wasn't important?

I have heard testimony after testimony about people being healed simply by changing their eating habits. The book Two Trees and Twelve Fruits is in part a health book but also a recorded testimonial of a personal healing.

God knows what heals our bodies and knew from creation what the human body would need for nourishment. Certain foods energize us and bring us nourishment while other certain foods can bring diseases and kill us. If your not sure about this, think about what would happen if you ate a plant that was known to  have a deadly poison in it. If by eating such a plant would affect our bodies in such a way to shut it down and eventually kill us. Wouldn't the same logic apply if we kept eating things that would slowly do the same things as a poisonous plant would?

Food, we need it everyday to live. Certain foods are good for the inside of the body as well as the outside. King Hezekiah almost died of a deadly boil, but after praying, God chose to use a certain fruit topically. After applying it to the boil it healed Hezekiah and he lived. It is possible that food (fruit) can carry with it the cure to disease? Mankind began in a garden of fruit trees and just maybe God is bring us back to that place, where we have access to innumerable health benefits that have been buried through time.  The Bible says in Revelation, that the Tree of Life bears 12 manners of fruits and the leaves are for the healing of the nations!

(Rev 22:2)  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.
