What does the Bible says about Natural Healing:
29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
22 A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.
18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
How safe is it for Christians to make use of Herbs for balancing their systems?
You must remember thatGod, our Creator of everything, made the different herbs that are found around the world for our use and blessings:
Genesis 9:3 – “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs.”
Hebrews 6:7 -”For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God;”
These days, the problem with Natural treatments is with the holistic health movement and tends to be taught by those who practice pantheistic powers and psychic energy.
The Bible makes us aware of this in 1 John 4:1-6 (NKJV)
“1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. 4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
Also there are other Scriptures thatremind us to avoid the counsel of those who follow other gods and reject Him. Most of the literature available today about Natural Healing is written by those who operate in the latter category. Also by those who chose to blend the latter with selected Scriptures to draw the attention of Christians to win their approval. Make sure you ask God to reveal to you His will for you.
