What’s An Aristaphagist!? Part 4: “Cure For Fibromyalgia?”

To read part 1, go here…What’s An Aristaphagist!?

.

.

.

.

Blessed art thou, O land,

when…thy princes eat in due season,

for strength, and not for drunkenness!”

Ecclesiastes 10:16, 17

There are many who suffer the pain and discomfort of Fibromyalgia. And there are many schools of thought as to the cause and cure of this debilitating disease.

.

One credible school of thought regarding Fibromyalgia is that it is akin to Arthritis. In other words, Arthritis sets in when a person has a body filled with toxins, which collect and are stored in various body joints such as wrists, fingers, arms, etc.. And after much time, the joints begin to ache, due to inflammation of those joints.

.

Fibromyalgia, according to some, is most likely due to the same cause: toxins building up in the body, eventually causing pain due to inflammation, due to years of less-than-good health habits (others may suffer various chronic illnesses because of an inherently weak system.)

A FORM OF ARTHRITIS?

.

Now if one should go on to the Internet, there are many videos presenting various theories as to the cause, and http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%E7%9C%9F%E8%A8%80%E5%AE%97%E6%9C%AC%E7%A6%8F%E5%AF%BA%E6%B0%B4%E5%BE%A1%E5%A0%82%E5%AE%89%E8%97%A4%E5%BF%A0%E9%9B%84%E5%BB%BA%E7%AF%89%E7%A0%94%E7%A9%B6%E6%89%804.JPGmany remedies for the cure (And above all, the advice of one’s own personal Physician is always advised!).

.

But just like Arthritis, Type-2 Diabetes, and many other chronic conditions, the best remedy may be found in lifestyle change.

.

In other words, the sufferer may find great relief by simply getting down to his or her desired weight, eating a healthful diet and getting daily exercise, if possible.

.

In many cases, the sufferer’s body has most likely experienced years of less-than-optimal lifestyle habits, causing toxins to remain in the body, instead of being eliminated through the process of breaking down and rebuilding of itself: a process which goes on day and night in every human’s body.

“…who are taken captive by him (Satan) at his will.”

2nd Timothy 2:26

.

The great problem with all this good advice about lifestyle change, is that quite often, it’s seemingly impossible for many sufferers to lose weight, eat correctly, and exercise. We all know better than we do!

.

Sadly, too many of us are caught up in Satan’s proverbial “web of sin”, and cannot get loose! And so, we are seemingly helpless to do the things we know to be right and good.

.

But today’s devotional is written to offer the remedy for this seemingly hopeless human condition of, “bondage to our intemperate ways”.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“…for without Me (Jesus) ye can do nothing.”

John 15:5

.

As with many maladies, be they physical, mental, or spiritual, there is one sure-fire remedy: Salvation in the Savior of the World!

.

And His Word holds out this promise…“If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31, 32

.

Here is the simple truth: to CONTINUE in Christ’s Word (by His grace)!

.

Only by such a patient daily continuance in the Bible, can any soul be truly made free!

.

In other words, it is not an hour, or a day, or even a month, or even a year that we seek Him. No, but rather it is through a lifetime of seeking the knowledge of God, that truly sets a Believer upon the pathway to victory! And that pathway to physical, mental, and spiritual healing is a journey, howbeit a hopeful one (even though the victory has already been won on the Cross!)

“…and He (the Lord) shall purify the sons of Levi (Believers), and purge them as gold and silver”

Malachi 3:3

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Como-investir-ouro.jpg.

One great reason for such a lifetime sojourn is that God’s greatest desire is for us to become purified and changed into Christ’s glorious image!

.

And so, the Lord works carefully and patiently with us, day-by-day, week-by-week, month-by-month, and even year-by-year, to sift us, to chasten us, to purify us, to mold us and make us into the glorious image of God.

.

And as time goes by, the Christian gradually increases in faith, trust, and obedience, as he or she allows God to daily perform His purifying process upon our hearts and lives.

GOD’S GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISE

.

And whether God instantly delivers us from our physical malady, whatever it may be, or whether He leads us step-by-step on the upward pathway, holding out our victory in front of us, like the proverbial “carrot”, we nevertheless cling to the following great and precious promise…

.

.

“Bless the LORD, O my soul,

and forget not all His benefits: 

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;

Who healeth all thy diseases; 

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction;

Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; 

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;

so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

Psalm 103:2-5

Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman….and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon….And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon….And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness….And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 21:1-3, 14, 15

.

This Woman of Revelation 12 is definitely fleeing to the mountains . As you can see in this sketch , The Dragon of Revelation 12 is spewing out his water of falsehoods: false gospels, false ideologies, various temptations, false brethren who will embrace her with the poisonous wine of the The Great Harlot of Babylon. These are what comprise this wave of water coming forth from the Dragon’s mouth. (see “Flood Waters of Satan”)
