Not By Bread Alone

Post (in blue quote marks italicized) sent to me via email :
"I recently learned of a study done back in the 1970’s on the effects of diet regarding the health of your heart. They used rabbits as their study group and fed them a high fat diet over several months, while monitoring their blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol. All the rabbits experienced an increase in fatty deposits on the insides of their arteries, all but one group. One group had up to sixty percent less fatty deposits. The scientists were confused. Their rabbits were all from the same gene pool, all received the same foods, and followed the same procedures, all but this one group. In this particular group, the researcher would talk to the rabbits, cuddle, pet, and love them. One of the scientists said, “She was an unusually kind and caring individual”.
They repeated the study, changing nothing, and the same results came. The rabbits who were talked to, cuddled, petted, and loved had greater health and less fatty deposits than those who were not. This study is found in a well-known medical journal called Science."
This is as necessary as air, water, and food for all creatures. We become sick, weak, and can die without it. This research was only on a physical level. Or was it just that? We are after all embodied souls and ensouled bodies. Only the Gnostics elevated the spiritual above the physical which they regarded as evil, or at best unimportant. This is dualistic thinking, and is dead wrong.
For over a year now the human population has been kept distant and masked from one another by at least 6 feet in a global diabolical experiment using a virus as an excuse.
We have been robbed of fellowship and social interaction and a great deal of what makes us human (it's called culture).
Our elders have been locked away in nursing care facilities and forbidden the loving touch of family and friends. This is beyond cruel and is regarded by some researchers as torture. A massive solitary confinement. The powers that be know that this weakens and sickens - emotionally, spiritually, psychologically, and physically - and can kill.
Every time it looks like the "numbers" are improving, here comes another "wave." Have you noticed the pattern?
God is Love, so this is not from God. Nor is the confusion and manipulation that comes along with it, because He is not the author of confusion or control.
The best "shot" for this is to draw near to God in prayer and His Word to petition Him as to what to do about it. And stay in the Presence of Him Who is Love until the answer comes.
Clearly petitions to career politicians bear no fruit, because no one is listening on that level. They simply love the focus but keep right on playing god. Politicians and "rulers" will not fix this. As is becoming more evident, they are in on it, and making it worse.
Maybe we are the ones who need to learn to listen to a Higher Authority. Man, like the rabbits aforementioned, does not live by bread alone.
