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
