Saturday i wrote a bit about where are faith and trust seem to be miss placed on doctors instead of the Lord.
 
i truly think this is just the tip of the iceberg, and just like when you walk in to a dark room and hit a light switch you don’t think about the light bulb coming on you hit the switch and just go about doing what you were doing.
 
i believe that in our lives we have become so accustom to the things and ways of the world that we are most of the time not even aware we are partaking in them, that we have taken what the world says and expects out of us to be the right thing for us to do and live.
 
i believe this saddens the Lord because it takes Him out of most of our daily life and replaces Him with want and need. Jesus said if we will obey the Father and keep His commandments seek Him and His ways He will provide ALL our needs, in Matthew Jesus tells us that He will supply our food clothing and shelter, and from what i have found in His word is that He has also provided what we need for good health, (that is not to say we will never be sick or get heart) we will be because of the fall of man, what i am saying is that He has placed on this earth what we need to but in to our body’s to give our body’s the opportunity to heal its self, plants and minerals. But instead of having our faith planted in the Lord for health for so many it is planted in the pharmaceuticals and doctors instead of the Lord.
 
i have seen over the years that man thinks an education is the key to a good life and so many have gotten sucked up in to collage and the gathering of information. And aging the Lord is left on the back burner. When true knowledge come from the Lord why do we go to man for it?
 
i have even know men who put more faith and trust in their job rather than the Lord, putting there family and their walk with the Lord on the back burner so that they can “get ahead in this world” to only find their family is falling apart and their getting head has put them in a trap.
 
Don’t get upset and walk away from this take the time and look at your life evaluate what you are doing and why you are doing it, and in it are you trusting the Lord or are you trusting in something the world has told you.
 
The Lord created us to have fellowship with Him, yes because of the fall of man we now have to work but that does not mean we have to get so entwined in the world and the worlds ways that neglect the Lord.
 
The next time you turn on a light think about turning on the connection between you and the Lord “it is called prayer and we are to be in communication with the Lord 24/7 365 days a year not just at meal time or Sundays, it is to be a daily walk, a walk that is more important to us then life its self.
 
No matter what is going on in your life today take the time and ask the Lord for wisdom, guidance, direction and that He would show you His wishes for your life.
 
Go with the Lord and He will go with you, put Him first in your life and He will direct your path.

Over the last three years i have been studding the 1599 Geneva Bible alongside the 1611 King James and the 1973 new American Slandered bible. (It is amazing how the bible has been changed over the years especially the last twenty)
 
i have been studding the word doctor in the bible and have found, and come to the conclusion that the word doctor in the word of God means something totally different then what we have been brought to believe today. As of today have condensed it down to 14 pages but am not totally dune.
What i have found so far is that doctor in the bible refers to a scribe or a teacher of the law.
And that all the healing done in the Bible was done by Father God, Christ Jesus, or Christ disciples, and we are told that by our faith or by the faith of others we can be healed.
Matthew 9:22 Christ tells a woman “your faith has made you well”
Matthew 9:29 Christ touched their eyes and said “it shall be done to you according to your faith”
Matthew 15:28 Christ says “O woman your fait is great; it shall be done for you as you wish” and her daughter was healed at once”
 
“Your faith has made you well” Matthew 9:22, Mark 5:34, Mark 10:52, Luke 8:48, Luke 17:19, Luke 18:42
 
1Timothy 5:23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.
 
a lot of Christians like to this to put a foundation to the belief doctors are of God  and that they will and can heal people.
that comment would be like me telling you, add oil to your car engine or it will ceas up, yes that is true but in no way does it make me a mechanic.
 
The word doctor:
In the 1599 Geneva Bible the word doctor appears 7 times
Four out of the seven speak of Christ being our Doctor the other three refer to a doctor as a doctor of the law. (Not a medical doctor)
 
In the 1611 King James Bible the word doctor only appears 3 times;
One speaks of Jesus being in the temple sitting among the doctors. These would be the teachers, scribes and Pharisees, the teachers or doctors of the law.
The other two state the doctor or doctors of the law
 
The word physician:
Physician is found 12 times in the 1599 Geneva Bible
1st and 2nd. For the embalming of Israel
3nd. refers to Asa and how he did not seek the Lord concerning his disease but a physician (the comment could lead you to think that when you have an illness you should go to the Lord not a physician)
4rd. speaks of physicians as ones who shares or teaches as a forge of lies (forge to build, shape, create, construct, establish, make, or form) and then goes on to say all you are physicians of no value. (Teachers of the word or law who are not right in their teachings or sharing are of no value)
5th. Speaks of those even though they have medical physicians their health did no recover. (doctors not healing)
6th, 7th, 10th Jesus speaks of the fact that whole do not need a physician referring to the fact that He came to save and heal both spiritual and physical
8th. Speaks of a lady whom had spent everything she had on physicians (doctors) and it did her no good, it made things much worse.
9th says Physician heal yourself, spoken by ones who didn’t like what they were hearing
11th. Talks of a woman having an issue of blood, twelve years long, which had spent all her substance upon physicians, and could not be healed of any of them.
12th. Luke refers to himself as beloved physician
 
In the 1611 King James is listed 11 times and relates the same as the 1599 Geneva Bible
 
Healed:
62 times The word healed appears 62 times and every time the healing is performed by God, the Lord, or by faith in Christ Jesus, all healing looks to be grounded in faith, faith that Christ will do what He said He would.
 
Healing:
Appears 18 times and is done by God, Christ Jesus, and faith in both,
The last time Revelation 22:2 the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations
 
Medicine / Medicines:
I have just started looking at but so far this is what I have found.
A merry heart is as beneficial as medicine in vain shalt thou use many medicines; for thou shalt not be cured. the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
 
i will be adding more as i go along
But from what i have seen read and studied so fare we need to be running to the Lord when we are sick or damaged, rather than the md doctor.
 
Father God created us and knows how we work and operate, and we need to trust more in God then man even if they are called doctor.

i need i need i want i want;
How many times have you said i need?
How many times have you said i want?
 
What truly is a need?
As humans we do have needs Air, Water, Food, Clothing and shelter, those are real physical needs we all have, beyond these there are wants, and when wants become so important that they become needs we are in trouble.
i have heard it said it is ok to want things, that God sail He will fulfil the desires of our hearts.
Yes we were told that in Psalms 37:4
Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.
 
But for some reason it seems the first part is conveniently forgotten or set aside. Delight yourself in the Lord these five words have more substance and worth then He will give you the desires of your heart.
 
Another part of a verse quoted all these things will be added to you. But aging the first part of this one is left out it says; seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.
 
The true conclusion; you want things from God first Seek His kingdom and His righteousness and Delight yourself in the Lord
 
It is easy to delight in a warm sunny day when everything is calm and peaceful, but what about when the storm rises and the clouds roll in and the rain and wind are upon you, can you delight when you are in the dark wet and cold?
The real question is Why Not, why not delight in the Lord at all times, for He allows the rain to fall on the just and unjust.
 
And it is easy to seek the Lord when you are in need, but seeking Him is easily forgotten when everything is going along fine and wonderful.
 
Yes we have been told that the Lord will give us the desires of your heart, and that He will also provide for all our needs, but if we are not willing to do our part by Delighting in Him and first seeking His kingdom and His righteousness we should not expect anything from the Lord.
 
If we are spending our time delighting in Him and seeking His Kingdom we won’t have so many wants and needs. For Christ is not only your provider He is your provision.
And contentment will find its way in our personality in which will bring about peace and joy.
 
Be satisfied with what you have, if you desire anything desire a closer relationship with the Lord not stuff and things.

Looking at the life of Job we can see that God is in control and that even satin knows he is accountable to Father God.
 
One thing i have thought when reading Job is how if no matter what may come into our lives first it is either from Father God or allowed by Father God.
 
And with that in mind we have nothing to complain about, for neither life nor death should separate us from the love of God, so when we are blessed we should bless God, and the same should happen when we are in loss or need.
 
Our heart and minds should constantly be in worship mode, loving the Lord God and being thankful for His love for us.
 
And for those of you who say to others “you have sickness or calamity in your life is because you have sin your life”. Get over yourself; you are as much of a sinner as anyone ell, should God strike you dead?

In the book of Job when we first meet Job we find He was a man who lived in the land of Uz; and that he was blameless, upright, fearing God and turning away from evil.
 
Job had seven sons and three daughters.
 
His possessions also were 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and very many servants; and that Job was the greatest of all the men of the east. We also found that His sons His sons and daughters partied together, a lot.
And we found that after the kids partied Job would get up early and perform burnt offerings for each of them, just in case they had sinned and cursed God.
And that He did this continuously.
 
And if you read the book of Job you will find three of His friend came by and for seven day sat with Him and the began to speak, but they would have been better off to have keep their mouths shut.
 
And after a very long conversation the Lord speaks up and lets them know how foolish they are.
 
Through the whole ordeal Job went through He never cursed God and for that God blessed Him with twice what He had before.
 
Between meeting Job and God giving Him beck twice what He had lost we are introduced to three of Jobs friends, they speak what they think is wisdom (the wisdom of man) seems they do not know God they just know of Him but their concepts are worldly based and useless.
 
One thing i picked up going through Job is that God is in control, and no matter what may come in to our lives whether we think it is good or bad if we are living upright before Him and continuously praising Him Father God He will bless us.
 
When bad things happen we need to keep our eyes on Father God and the Lord Jesus at all times by doing so we will have no need to fear anything not even death.
 
If we put Christ first in our lives, repent daily of our sins, keep His commandments and praise Him constantly, The Lord God will bless our lives.
 
When bad times come God is still in control.
So except your day as a gift from the Father, praise God, run from sin, and ask to be forgiven for any sins in your life.
 
be one who is like Job; blameless, upright, God fearing and turning away from evil.



Hodgepenny

As time went on He just sat, knoqing, knowing what no one else seemed to know.

But staring in to the red leave's He knew spring was on it's way, and that His life would go on as He reflected on the Love He had felt.

And that no mater how the lonely streets desended upon Him He would continue to shin, as He sat their He could be heard sining softly to Himself,   This little light of mine.

Hodgepenny's philosphy has always been take care of home first, only give to those who are truly in need, never, No never take anything that you have not earned. always spend as much time with the Father ae you can, for His love will guide and keep you through all things, and this will make your life better than great.
