KNOWLEDGE


“We do not believe the report of men; we believe the report of the Lord” … THAT belief – and the voicing of it aloud – resulted in chaos at the doctor’s office and chaos at home when both the Monday doctor and my sister got a little pissy with us and started praising the benefits of doctors and medical hypothesis according to textbook ‘knowledge”. Mind you, my sister says she is {a Believer} and {rests on God’s promises}; yet she allows medical fears to get the best of her. We expected the blowouts because we understand that they are basing their beliefs in science and not in Elohei. We understand that it is one thing for a person to SAY they believe in the healing of Yeshua … and to actually BELIEVE in the healing of Yeshua: we believe; and EXPECT a good report and a miraculous outcome following all these follow-up appointments, which thankfully, are coming to a close.


The doctors do not – they preach fear and push surgeries, IV’s, and pills.

And my sister and her husband do not – they easily fall into the snare of fear with every single medical guess at what could possibly go wrong, and she believes in {healing} surgeries, refreshing Iv’s, and the magical proprieties of one pill prescription after another.

But they will believe ;-) Because what BOTH are witnessing what Hubs has been going through with the “help of medical ‘men of knowledge’” these past 6-1/2 weeks. There has been a whole LOT of guessing, and not a LOT of medical ‘knowledge’ going on with Hub’s situation! We can do WITHOUT that!! And Hubs fully intends to … Elohei has been showing Himself strong, faithful, and very much real with positive and praiseworthy results. And we are giving HIM – not the medical field, which Hubs is rejecting and untangling himself from asap – ALL the praise and glory.


Aside from the miraculous turn-around while he was dying in ICU a few weeks ago, Elohim, on Friday, honored us with a good report concerning the EKG readings – the reading also was nothing short of miraculous: Hubs has had a “heart flutter” for at least 3 decades, so the big concern the doctors had about the arrhythmia didn’t concern us at all – we KNEW it was there and we were not concerned. We were TRUSTING Elohim’s favor and mercy. And we got it in spades with the EKG readout which led to praising Him before the medical staff :-D There was a loud and contentious show-down between the doc and Hubs, but in the end the EKG results could NOT be denied, and 2 prescriptions were ended; with the other being drastically reduced/weaning to the completion of remaining pills: that will come to a halt in 17 days.

Science is a pagan practice based on guess work that totally leaves Elohei OUT of the equation. Why on earth would WE put our hope and trust in something that relies on nothing more than {higher education} guesswork having shamanistic (aka witch doctor) background? It makes more sense to us, as Christians, to put our trust in F.A.C.T. rather than letting {educated} doctors speak fear and questionable assumptions into our lives/or make place in our lives for labs to “work their magic”/or to live our lives filling our bodies with toxic pharmaceutical garbage. Like Hubs told Friday’s doctor: “Being here goes against everything I believe in – my wife brought me to ER against my wishes (I did ... I gave in to fear when I saw the vomit 6-1/2 weeks ago; I WON'T do it again!), and you guys held me here for days against my will nearly killing me with all your unwanted help. I already know what your advice and prescriptions DID to me while I was in the hospital – I am STILL suffering the fallout of all that ‘help’. Why would I want to continue that?”

The explosions voiced by both the doctor at the hospital appointment … and later voiced at home by my sister, was expected; and Hubs weathered them both well. My sister even asked my husband … while I was in the back bedroom making the bed … “is this decision YOUR decision – or are you making your decision because of Val’s input?” Hubs assured her that any decision he makes about his life are HIS decisions. If she knew him as well as I do, she wouldn’t have asked the question: Hubs does what HE wants to do … he is NOT a pushover or easily persuaded to do ANYTHING. He gathers information from every possible source, thinks on EVERYTHING for at least 2 weeks be for making a final decision, and when he has made his decision – it’s made – like cast in stone. Even my opinions and/or suggestions do not move him once he makes up his mind While it is true that Hubs and I are a team and work as one, it is also true that we make our decisions for our lives separately and the other supportively stands by: sometimes we are in total unity, and sometimes we are in opposition. BUT we are ALWAYS a TEAM. We are one … as Biblical marriage is supposed to be. And we also understand that Lucifer will USE one or the other to undermine Elohei’s Will. So, when facing life altering decisions, we take into account the other’s concerns and opinions when we need to make joint decisions; BUT after everything is said and done, we stand alone in our personal decisions when it comes down to Elohei’s Will concerning our spiritual, physical, and emotional health and well-being … and the other stands alongside offering moral/prayer/and physical support; whether or not they agree: we are a team and we stand in unity. That is also as it is to be Biblically.

And Hubs reminded her that we are supposed to speak to each other in psalm and words of Gospel encouragement as I have been doing when Hubs and I discuss things that affect our life together – not to sway one or the other to a specific opinion, but more to strengthen and bring to mind the Words of Life so necessary to stand firm in the promises of God in fearful circumstances (she should KNOW this!). Though we were expecting my sister’s objections because we know how she thinks and feels about medical intervention (all for it; preaches it like it’s gospel), we were a little taken aback by her objections to consulting the Scriptures for encouragement and wisdom! THAT is WHAT Christians are TOLD TO DO! Not only by Elohim, but plainly said BY Yeshua. If today’s Christians do not want to take the Old Covenant into consideration, there are PLENTY OF INSTANCCES in the New Covenant where the Disciples were TOLD BY Yeshua to look to the Word of God for inspiration, faith, and wisdom. And the Apostles TAUGHT that the Word coupled with faith in Yeshua was SUFFICIENT unto health and well-being. The Early Church LIVED by the Gospel grounded IN the Holy Scriptures, and they put the Word of God INTO PRACTICE.


As we said to my sister, “If you can SHOW us IN the Scriptures … ANYWHERE in the Scriptures … WHERE it SAYS that we, as Believers, are encouraged or flat out told to run to a doctor and put our faith in a doctor, then we will change our way of thinking. But UNTIL you can DO that … we do not rely on men, but rather on Elohei.”

We do not believe that the {men of knowledge} she is referring to are doctors or hospital staff; we believe she and her husband are misrepresenting the Scriptures with that assertation.


“For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6)

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7)

“The discerning heart seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feeds on folly” (Proverbs 15:14)

“Teach me knowledge and good judgement, for I trust Your commands” (Psalm 119:66)

“The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him; the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord – and he will delight in the fear of the Lord. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge …” (Isaiah 11:2)

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord. As the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)

“… that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ himself …” (Colossians 2:2-3)

CLEARLY Scripture speaks of the knowledge OF ELOHEI … not of men … that we, as believers are to adhere to. We do not believe the report of men; we believe the report of the Lord. And on that we rest our case and expect a good outcome when the dust from this ordeal settles. Amen
