Epidemic Symptom Relief

I am going to post a link to an article below as the “body” of this post. But first I want to qualify a couple of things.

1. The blogger who wrote this is valued to me. I do not use his blog to “slam him“. His post is just a great example of the kind of “rabbit-hole” hyperbole that I myself have followed and if you are honest – you have too. So please don’t start lamb-basteing this blogger with judgement. My hope is that it will instead by the work of the Spirit of God cause us all to ask God to show us our own tendency to focus on the wrong things (typically with “pure” motives) and we forget what a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” looks like – in ourselves. I am not referring to the author of the blog…but the evil one whose work it is to get us to focus on symptom fixing so as to keep us from the very heart of God.

2. We live in a world that has bought…and when I say bought I mean we have invested everything into a lie.
Symptom treating is epidemic now. In our physical bodies…in our Spiritual diseases. Look at the latest pharmaceutical commercials. These are ALL to treat a symptom and not the actual problem. Everyone of them has this sort of dreamy music with spring and summer scenes pouring out as if a new pill encapsulates this “cure” that few and I mean few have possibly experienced. Towards the middle of each one, they start to list the symptoms that this new symptom treater can cause. Example: here’s a cure for smokers, take this and stop smoking BUT though now you may be “smoke free” you may now be: suicidal, have ulcers, bleeding of the stomach or intestinal tract, oh and in rare cases may experience heart failure or stroke!! I just love the word “experience” the way they so calmly say it…to the tone of a Disney “experience”…eyes rolling.
For us in the “christian world” it should be obvious…but alas it has invaded there too.
All the psychology of how, where, when, and why we sin…falls in the same sphere. Notice too, psychology also falls under a “medical licence” as well….hummmm…I began to get a hint here. Ahhh…the wolf has indeed found a sheep suit! People just want to feel well. Make a pill, give them a dose of “reason”…turn them into symptom treaters and they’ll feel like “at least they are doing something! Oh my dear brothers and sisters, I pray the Spirit of God move into this blindness!

So here is the post, and yes I commented but as I said before…my hope is that as God did for me, He will do for us all…
As you read…ask Him (God) to speak to you where you need sight restored. Where we tend to get side tracked by symptoms instead of the problem. For this is my hearts intent here, not to cause useless meanderings down “debate lane”.

John 17:14-19 ~ Yeshua (Jesus) praying to the Father for us all…

“I have given them Your Word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world – just as I Myself do not belong to the world. I don’t ask You to take them out of the world, but to protect them from the Evil One. They do not belong to the world just as I do not belong to the world. Set them apart by holiness by means of the TruthYour word is Truth. Just as You sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world. On their behalf I am setting Myself apart for holiness, so that they too may be set apart for holiness by means of the Truth.”

Matthew 11:12 ~ Yeshua speaking…

From the time of Yochanan the Immerser (John the Baptizer) until now, the Kingdom of God has been suffering violence; yes, violent ones are trying to snatch it away.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
