God’s Word is medicine
Now this medicine is wonderful medicine. You cannot overdose, and it has wonderful side effects like wisdom, peace, prosperity and so on.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life
Health = marpe: a medicine, a cure, a deliverance, a healing, a remedy, with the sense of soundness and wholeness.
Though I am no Hebrew scholar, my study in Strong’s only shows five verses that this verse is used in. The one above, and the following four verses.
1. Proverbs 12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
This is a beautiful verse, when you insert the definition of the word ‘marpe’ into it. Our words, spoken gently, become healing, a remedy, a deliverance, soundness and wholeness to people, and the wisdom of God spoken, will literally produce healing in every area of life.
2. Proverbs 13:17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.In the new testament, or covenant we read: The old Testament, is the new testament concealed, the new testament the old testament revealed.
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God
Ambassadors represent the country that sends them. As citizens of heaven, ambassadors of Christ, we are good news where we are sent, for the kingdom of heaven has no sickness. When God sends us to someone sick or suffering, we heal the sick!
When we reconcile someone to God, the author of all health and life, they get healed!
3. Proverbs 16:24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Again we see marpe being used for healing of the bones. Why the bones? Science shows us that in the marrow of our bones is where our blood is produced. Scripture tells us that life is in the blood. Healthy bones equal new fresh blood, Life to all of our bodies!
4.Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall
Jesus rose from the dead! He is alive! He is the Son of righteousness risen with healing, a remedy, medicine, a deliverance, and soundness in His wings.
Father, I ask You to heal me today! I believe I receive my healing, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus. As You are working in me, I choose to take the medicine of Your Word, the comfort and anesthetic of Holy Spirit today, trusting You, who cannot lie, to fully bring it to pass. Amen
