Poultice of Figs

I have never heard the word poultice before so on december 28 2010 I was reading my bible, and I was in the book of Isaiah 38. I read this same chapter days ago, and for some reason I was lead back there to read and came upon verse 21 where Isaiah said "Prepare a poultice of figs and apply it to the boil and he will recover." so of course never seen the word before I got on my laptop and went to the dictionary to find out what the word meant, and I was astonished to see that there were so many poultice used for different things all coming from natural sources from the bible. Well praise be to God. I have used garlic for my sinus infection in the form of a tea because its a natural antibiotic.

I too have read the Bible a few times and every day a different book for Mass and Isaiah over over many many times this is the 1st I seen "poultice of fig" as one of the commenters says about how God makes you see certain things. I totally agreed that’s what happened to me today 1st reading was Isaiah 38:1-6, 21-22, 7-8. I too took to my computer to see the meaning and the health benefits..God gave us Natural ingredients in the Bible for our HEALING HEALTH...

I have just ran across in 2 Kings 20 of how God heals Hezekiah with a lump or poultice of figs. I bought some yesterday, fresh figs, but be careful if you have cats. Mine couldn't even be in the room

I read in Hezekiah 20 of how God healed Hezekiah with a lump of figs, or some versions, poultice. I bought some yesterday, could only find at Whole foods, but after a mammogram-sonogram and biopsy this week, I knew God was speaking directly to me. I will have to find a way to do this during the day when I'm not around my cats, as figs are TOXIC to them, and I noticed them wheezing right away, just in the room with them. It stopped when I removed the figs.

Figs really do heal
by: Rita

Two days ago on Monday morning I discovered a very large painful looking lump next to my dogs bottom , I bathed it in apple cider vinegar and on Monday evening applied the fruit pulp of fresh figs to it , half an hour later the very large boil burst ouzing some very horrible pus shrinking to half its size , I'm continuing with the treatment for a few more days but that's to ensure complete healing . My dog is back to being his happy playful self .
