They will pick up serpents; and (even) if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick and they will get well.
This scripture is what came to me when I found out my husband would have to take medication with severe side effects. Some people get the meaning of this scripture completely wrong.
I know God enough to know that He does not want us going out and picking up snakes or drinking poisonous drinks. What He means is, if I happen to pick up a snake by accident, or drink or take something poisonous, as in the medical field. Sometimes a medication has poisonous ability as a side effect but there is no other way to treat the problem, then that scripture comes into play. I don’t believe in trying God, just believing His Word or taking Him at His Word.
Before my husband takes his awful side effect pill for CML, I have him read this scripture. One never knows, until one tries; the Word of God has never failed me yet! The scriptures tell me that God looks after His Word to perform it.
Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My Word to perform it.
We had a problem in June 2017 with a diagnosis of CML…the medical field does not know what causes it, but, I have thought a lot about it. He was checked in January 2017, March 2017 without CML diagnoses. It was June 2017 when things started going awry. Two days after he gets diagnosed with CML, I get a letter from the Water Department saying, the Water System exceeded the standard or maximum contaminant period, for the second quarter. The level of Total Haloacetic Acids concentration had exceeded their totals.
They do not know that my husband has CML and CLL. The two are not related to anyone in the medical field’s knowledge. The CLL came from Agent Orange exposure. At least we know where the CLL came from. The medical field does not know what causes CML. It used to kill those who had it within 1-2 years, but now they have a drug that suppresses it, though it does not eradicate it. That drug has terrible side effects, that is why I have him read that scripture before he takes it…so far, so good!
We’ll know more when we see his labs in August 2017. I haven’t been on Facebook to notify all of you who know him as I have been running here and there to doctors and trying to study in-between.
It might just be that we have found what causes CML…who knows! Of course, they need to look at all the others who have it or it could be Round-up. My husband had been doing that as well (Not used in the garden) even though I had hired someone to do that for him, but after killing his rose bush two times, that was the end of that!
He took back over…It may be several things together…who knows? I need all my prayer warriors to be praying for him that he will overcome this problem as he has all the other problems he has been given through the years.
We know, according to scripture, it is appointed once unto mankind to die and then the judgement…only our judgment was at the cross…we just don’t want to take the next bus out. We know at our ages, or at any age, that one day that is a possibility of that happening and we are ready, just not inclined to go yet! We believe there are a lot of people to see, places to go, things to get done and whether we stay or leave we win! We believe God wants us to fight all the way to the end to do what He would have us to do. God is not the one who brings trouble. It is the trouble-maker satan. And No, I will not capitalize his name…correct grammar and spelling, or not!
Well, on we go, with sword in hand (Word of God), doing what we can. Just thought you-all might want an update on the goings-on around here.
