Health Issues

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3Jo 1:2)

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (1Co 6:19)


The subject of our health and divine healing raises numerous questions.  We should always pray for the sick and do what we can to help but miracles are not always God's will. Sometimes he wants us to see a doctor or make some lifestyle changes.


A Personal Testimony

I feel compelled to share some things that I have discovered regarding our health. It relates to the great health and healing benefits of strong antioxidants such as Grape Seed Extract or Pycnogenol or Pine Bark Extract and the use of Aloe Vera Juice.  Also the use of Colloidal Silver as a natural antibiotic. 

I have used these products for years with good results. They provide protection and healing from many serious diseases.

A Google of Grape Seed Extract brings many sites which describe it's benefits. Check out this one:   
Grape Seed Extract

As to the use of Pycnogenol and Aloe Vera juice, and Colloidal silver, see (or download) the following book:   Health  (be patient - loads slowly)


As to diet, Dr. John McDougall who after years of standard medical practice decided that diet and moderate exercise was more effective in curing most of our diseases than the drugs usually prescribed. He has created a renowned wellness ministry and has a very interesting story to tell about why Americans are so sick. His website reveals the good and bad things to eat, sample meals, and much more.

Memory & Alzheimer's
Here is some good news for those of us who struggle with memory issues.
Phosphatidylserine (NeuroPS) is a nutrient vital to optimal brain function. It is a supplement that functions to restore neuronal health and has been used in relieving depression, ADHD, helping age-related memory loss and in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.

Quickie Witness


The greeting -- be very friendly and ask a question such as: "how is your day going?"  Be prepared to sympathize and encourage if things are not going well. (Be a good listener if they go into detail)


If there is no time for conversation other than the greeting, try the following:


Has anyone ever given you a ticket to Heaven?

Hand them a gospel tract  – And say  “Here is one – all you need to do is validate it”   God bless.


 Another quickie is:


 Great joy is wrapped up in this little message - please take it.

Hand them a "Great News" tract  

Another is:


Do you have an audio bible? 

If the answer is no, say "This is an MP3

 CD of the bible and it is absolutely free, can I give it to you?

 (in the sleeve you may want to include a tract)



Conversational Witness


Opening a conversation is a challenge.  It is not easy for most of us, but with practice it will get easier.


If you show an interest in a person, usually they will respond in a positive way.  If possible,  silently ask God to prepare their heart and help you to love them regardless of the response that you may get.  Be kind, respectful, and humble.  Be patient – let them finish what they are saying. Ask for courage and wisdom.  Avoid arguments – simply ask questions.


  See what works for you – and don’t get discouraged if you get a brush off.


Try to find a subject that the person is interested in and see if you can get them talking about it.  See if you can find out what their life centers on.  Start with a simple (non threatening)  question to open up the conversation such as one of the following.


What is your name?

How is your day going?

Are you having a good day?

Are you happy?

Do you have a job?

Do you like your job?

Are you going to school?

What is your highest goal in life


At a convenient point in the conversation, bring up a question that has spiritual implications.  You might want to ask  permission such as "Can I ask you a question?"


 Then pick a topic such as one of the following:


What do you think is the purpose of life?


What is the most important thing that you want to accomplish with your life?


What is the most important thing that you know?


Are you as spiritual as you would like to be?

Do you believe in God?

Do you consider yourself a sinner?

What do you think about Jesus Christ?

What do you think about the Bible?

What do you think about the 10 commandments?

Do you ever worry about dying?

What is your biggest worry?

When you die, what do you think is on the other side?

Do you think that there is more than one way to get to heaven?

Do you think that a person can know for sure that he will go to heaven when He dies?

In your spiritual journey, have you come to the point that you know for sure that you will go to heaven when you die?



When you get a response to your question, you can thank the person for his or her answer and say “This little bible tract touches on that subject.  I would like for you to take it.  God bless.


Or if it is appropriate continue the discussion – perhaps ask additional questions.  Note: Be extremely sensitive to their time – especially if they are working.
