Honey is not just sweet, its medicine!

   Honey is the only food that never spoils?

 Proverbs 24:13a     “My son, eat honey because it is good,”  

 Deuteronomy 11:9 “And that you may prolong your days in the land which                                                  the Lord swore to give your fathers, to them and their                                                       descendants, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey.” 

 1 Samuel 14:29      “Jonathan said, “My father has made trouble for the land!                                               See how much better I feel after just tasting a little of this                                               honey! 

 Isaiah 7:15              “He (Jesus) will be eating curds and honey when he knows                                              enough to reject the wrong and choose the right,

 Mark 1:6                 ” John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt                                         around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.”

God says “eat honey because it is good”! Unlike sugar and other sweeteners, honey has many healthful benefits. King Saul’s Son Nathan was a mighty warrior, his people were enslaved by their mortal enemies the Philistines. God encouraged Nathaniel to challenge the Philistines and God then gave Nathaniel a great supernatural victory. As soon as his father Saul heard that the war had begun, he issued an order that everyone must not eat until the battle was over. Nathaniel was not present when the order was given. While in the midst of battle he became famished and out of energy. He saw some honey and ate it. Immediately he felt better. When he heard what his father had commanded he challenged the wisdom of that order, since he gained strength after eating the honey, and that strength lasted the rest of the day. Sugar and other sweeteners do not produce the same effect. They may give an initial rush of energy but quickly there after your energy level will drop below what it was before you ate the sugar. You end up worse off after eating the sugar.

Twenty-four different times in Bible history, God said he would bless the people with milk and honey. He even said that it would prolong or lengthen their lives. People who eat honey will live longer than those who use sugar or other sweeteners.

Dave Newman, director of the Astoria Rescue Mission is a close friend of mine and is an amazing physical specimen. Dave is constantly exercising and doesn’t have an ounce of body fat. He has actually competed as a MMA cage fighter, but Dave was also a sugarholic, that means he was addicted to and lived on sweets and refined foods. Without warning his health took a major turn for the worse, he was making repeated trips to the emergency room with chest pains and other heart related problems. His wife Amy and their children began to make plans for life without Dave. I gave Dave this book you are reading, he read God’s advice, and put God’s advice into practice. So what happened? In Dave’s own words… “I’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to Pastor Chris and his personal studies in the development of his book, (God’s Guide To Biblical Health and Healing). they were instrumental in the recovery process, that not only led to a full return of health from a year long struggle of chest pain and constant trips to the hospital, but though prayer and the tips outlined in his book, I was in better shape than that of the previous nine years.”

Honey isn’t just sweet, it’s medicine!

Honey has been fond to be your best medicine for upper respiratory infections. In 2005 the American College of Chest Physicians declared that OTC (over the counter) cough remedies were largely ineffective for people of any age. In a Consumer Reports article, it was reported that honey appears to trump over-the-counter cough medicine as a treatment for coughs. In a 2007 study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, 105 children ages 2 to 18 who suffered from upper-respiratory infections received either no treatment, honey, or a honey-flavored over-the-counter cough suppressant. Those treated with OTC cough medicine took the longest to recover and those treated with honey recovered the quickest. In January 2008 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said that over-the-counter cough medications posed unacceptable risks to children under age 2. In a 2011 article in the journal of food and chemical toxicology; it was stated that according to many studies on treatment of breast and lung cancers, honey is a good chemotherapeutic agent. It is an intelligent food. While it is selectively toxic to tumor or cancer cells, it is non-cytotoxic to normal cells.

Honey doesn’t spoil because bacteria cannot live in it. For this reason, historians tell us that in ancient times kings were buried in coffins filled with honey. Rumor has it that Genghis Khan was buried in honey. For ages people have been using honey on burns and skin lacerations to stop the possibility of infection. God in his infinite wisdom, preprogrammed bees to create honey with a vary low average ph level of 3.9, bacteria cannot live in such an acidic state. Honey also contains hydrogen peroxide, a substance known throughout the world as a strong anti bacterial. A study published in Nature magazine, makes a correlation between adequate levels of hydrogen peroxide and white blood cell function. Researchers are saying when you are sick or injured, “white blood cells converge on the site and initiate the healing process, “if” adequate levels of hydrogen peroxide are in your body.  So if you want to have a strong immune system eat honey.

There is nothing in the Bible by accident. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy; “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful…”  The bible makes reference to what Jesus ate and what John the Baptist ate. Listen to this: Isaiah 7:15  “He (Jesus) will be eating curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right,” When Jesus was old enough to choose for himself what was good or bad, he chose to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. That is what we would expect the bible to say but instead, it says he chose to eat honey. The bible also tells us that John the Baptist ate honey. This information seems unnecessary. Who cares what they ate? Well, evidently God cared and God still cares what we eat, because he loves us and wants the best for us. He does not want us to get tumors or cancer; he does not want us to suffer from upper respiratory infections. He wants us to live long, he wants us to choose the right things to eat and reject the wrong things to eat. If you want to sweeten something you are eating switch to honey. I used to put ketchup on my hamburgers, probably because of the sugar in the ketchup. I have switched to honey and it actually tastes better. Jesus ate “curds and honey” I tried it. I love cottage cheese and peaches in sugar syrup. Now I have cottage cheese with honey, wow it’s like eating ice-cream. Honey tastes good and it is good for you, that is probably why Winnie-the-Pooh is always in such an agreeable mood.
