Daily Reading: Revelation 21 & 22
By: Sarah Mack
"Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him."
Some may call this coincidence, but there's a plant called lamb's ear (think of the leaves used to heal the nation's and of Jesus the Lamb of God in this correlation). It has super soft fuzzy leaves and can be used for medicinal purposes or a wilderness bandage. When you place it on a cut or wound it will dry the blood by absorbing it into itself and speeds the healing process through it's antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. The Lambs Ear Plant is a plant made by God and this little plant so clearly points back to our Healer, Jesus! How cool is that?!
Jesus is the tree of life, the healer of hearts, the binder of wounds, the one who heals each precious individual (the nation's). Everyone who feeds off and drinks of Jesus is able to freely take part of Jesus' heavenly healing. Jesus, the Lamb of God takes our soul wounds and the wounds of the nations upon himself. He brings the relief no other earthly remedy can bring. When Jesus is applied to our life and nation, the innocent blood will cease to be poured out before Him (think abortion). When the healing and binding/unifying power of Jesus is placed on our marriage, couples will be restored as one flesh. When the healing, binding, unifying power of Jesus is placed on racial wounds, our skin color will not matter and we will be "a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that [we] may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called [us] out of darkness into his marvelous light." 1 Peter 2:9
Revelation 21:22- 27 "And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations."
The Lamb of God is the light to every darkness; he is the truth and glory we so desire. Many look for another answer in every other place, but the answer is 100% Jesus. Ask Jesus to bring the healing you desire, but remember to sit in His presence and take time to receive the Healing He longs to give.
