What does the Bible say about our Bones?

Healthy bones are a sign of good health, but unhealthy bones are a sign of poor health. Why? Bones are in one sense the manufactures of the blood which is the life of the body. Do the Scriptures reveal anything about our bones? YES! The Scriptures tell us about many things that effect our bones and thus our health.

Some factors which produce unhealthy bones

ENVY = Brings rottenness to the bones.

“A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness to the bones” (Proverbs 14:30).

A BROKEN SPIRIT = Dries the bones.

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” (Proverbs 17:22).

GOD’S CHASTENING = Produces strong pain in the bones.

“Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed” (Psalm 6:2).

GRIEF AND INIQUITY = Cause to bones to be consumed.

“For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed” (Psalm 31:10).

SIN’S CURSE = The bones are out of joint.

“I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels” (Psalm 22:14).



Some factors which produce healthy bones

THE FEAR OF THE LORD = Produces bone marrow.

“Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones” (Proverbs 3:7-8).

. A GOOD REPORT = Makes the bones fat.

“The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat” (Proverbs 15:30).

PLEASANT WORDS = Brings health to the bones.

“Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones” (Proverbs 16:24).

PEACE AND COMFORT = Causes our bones to flourish.

“And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies” (Isaiah 66:14).

I believe that we need to look to the Word for our problems in life to include our sickness and disease. A good example would be: “A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness to the bones” (Proverbs 14:30).

The root cause for osteoporosis is envy and jealousy which matches the Word. The fruit of envy and jealousy is rottoness of the bones and that is not only a physical problem but a spiritual problem. The healing and prevention of osteoprosis begins in eleminating envy and jealousy from your life. I believe that about 80% of all diseases are spiritualy rooted. These spiritualy rooted diseases manifest themselves physicaly. When we live in fear, guilt, self-hatred ect… The enemy comes in and agrees with us and takes an assignment of destruction.
