Healing Versus the Practice of Medicine
This article is excerpted from Dr. David Stewart's book, Healing Oils of the Bible, in which Dr. Stewart shows us God's desire for us to have lifestyles free of disease. He cites holy scriptures, names specific holy oils, and outlines a Biblical Oils program to encourage each and every one of us to take responsibility for keeping ourselves healthy, happy, and whole.
The purpose of this book (Healing Oils of the Bible) is to educate and inspire you to realize the infinite care and detail to which our Creator has gone to provide for us the medicines we need to heal and maintain our health. It is not for us to create these healing substances. God did that already. It is for us to tune in with His wisdom and His will and to educate ourselves in how to restore our wellness and maintain our health by the use of His natural creations. Among these Divine gifts are the oils of plants. God made them and gave us the intelligence to discover and learn how to use them.
This book (Healing Oils of the Bible) is based on both scripture and science. It is a resource and a reference book wherein the ancient and Biblical arts of healing are related to the medical sciences of today. It is not the intent of this book to diagnose, prescribe, make medical claims, to practice medicine in any form, or to encourage anyone else to do so unless they are properly licensed to perform such functions. For these things, you need to see a physician or other appropriate licensed health care professional.
Healing is a holistic spiritual term, not a medical one. The ancient priests and prophets, as well as some physicians of the Bible, anointed people with oil and prayed with them for their spiritual purification, moral repentance, and healing. So did Jesus. So did his disciples. And so did the Christians of the early church.
What Are Healing Oils?
The healing oils of the Bible are all essential or aromatic. These oils are the vital fluids of plants that are their lifeblood. They are called "essential" because they are necessary for the life of the plant and contain the "essence" of the plant. Essential oils contain life force, intelligence, and vibrational energy that imbues them with healing power that works for people.
Essential oils are composed of tiny molecules that can penetrate into every cell, administering healing therapy at the most fundamental levels of our bodies. They differ from the fatty oils we use for cooking. Fatty oils are composed of molecules much too large to penetrate to cellular levels. The familiar vegetable oils we use for foods have no therapeutic powers, at least not in the same ways as essential oils.
Essential oils were inhaled, applied to the body, and taken internally by the peoples of the Biblical times. Their benefits extend to every aspect of our beings: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The ancient people of the Holy Land seemed to understand this quite well. They used aromatic oils for every purpose from maintaining wellness, to physical healing, to enhancement of spiritual states in worship, to emotional cleansing, to purification from sin.
The medicines manufactured by man cannot compare with the healing capabilities of essential oils. Man-made pharmaceuticals lack the life force, the intelligence, and the vibrational energy found in healing oils. Synthetic prescriptions all have undesirable side effects even when taken according to a doctor's directions. Some side effects can be deadly. No drug is capable of true healing. Furthermore, when more than one drug is taken at once, they work in disharmony. Dangerous inter-reactions can occur. Tens of thousands of people die every year from prescription medicines, not because they overdosed or failed to follow directions, but because such drugs are inherently dangerous. That is why only licensed doctors are allowed to prescribe them. Meanwhile, people on drugs are not cured. Instead, they find themselves trapped in a life-long dependency on drug companies and the healthcare system.
Compare this with essential oils. They have no serious side effects . . . none that are deadly. They can and do effect true healings. When more than one is used at once, they work in harmony. Dangerous inter-reactions do not occur. No one has ever died from a properly applied essential oil. They are inherently safe. That is why anyone can use them without the supervision or prescription of a doctor. Meanwhile, people with chronic diseases are cured and no longer need oils or any other medicine. They become free and are no longer dependent on the medical system.
The point here is that essential oils are a gift from God to us . . . his children. They are special. They have been a gift too long ignored and misunderstood. The time has come to correct those misunderstandings and bring essential oils back into the uses for which God intended them.
