189 - The way of holiness

Kathleen's thoughts

Isaiah 26: 12-19 God's victorious people

Isaiah 26: 20-21, 27: 1-13Judgement and restoration

Isaiah 22: 1-14 The coming siege

Isaiah 34: 1-17 God will punish His enemies

Isaiah 35: 1-10 The coming victory...8. A road will be there and a way, it will be called Holy Way. The unclean will not travel on it. but it will be for him who walks the path. Even the fool will not go astray. There will be no lion there, and no vicious beast will go up on it; they will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk on it, and the ransomed of the Lord will return and come to Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee.

2 Kings 20: 1-11 Hezekiah's divine healing..Here is something interesting about healing skin disease. verse 7... Then Isaiah said, " bring a lump of pressed  figs" so they brought it and applied it to his infected skin, and he  recovered. So there has to be something in figs that heals skin diseases...do we use it today in our treatment of our ailments. So I did some research and this is one of the things I found.

When I was a kid, I remember that there were several fig trees surrounding our house. Yes, we had a big garden, and we planted hundreds of medicinal plants as a hobby. Our grandparents used to dry leaves, barks and ripe fig fruits. Our family enjoyed eating sweet figs the whole year-round. We also used the leaves as herbal medicines.
Fig Fruits

Today, we rarely see fig trees in big civilized cities

In the Bible, there are approximately 67 references to a fig tree. This reminds me that since 2000 years ago, figs were popular around the world, and has been used medically since the ancient times.
I kept planting a few sticks of figs in my farm for the purpose of my old memories to inherit to my children and for generations to come.
