Statement of Declaration: The author of this work believes without reservation, that the King James Bible is more than just a priceless work of literary art, which it is. But it is has indeed been preserved without error by God's providence as an infallible book that the common man in the English speaking world can hold and own, and the light it can give rest entirely on that man's faith in it and its Author. And all those who believe otherwise have either been duped, have an unclean motive, are just ignorant or see no issue of importance in having God's word readily available in an infallible form. No amount of linguist ability can give any extra light if there is doubt to its content, the Holy Spirit will not honour anyone that want to subject this English Bible to an inferior position.
(Mark 5:26) And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
This text comes from the woman with an issue of blood that Jesus healed. Yet it’s application are far more than just the story in Writ and much can be gleamed from the text and passages around it.
1. The physicians of the world are many and when one examines their real worth we often must concur with Job they are physicians of no value.
Job 13:4 But ye [are] forgers of lies, ye [are] all physicians of no value.
I mean even abortionists are often licensed physicians and they take life rather than promote it. This is not to say that all physicians are immoral or mercenary, but we are dealing with flesh that makes its livelihood off of other flesh. Therefore, it is unwise to exalt them to a position of honour that is above their worth because they are just
2Ch 16:12 And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease [was] exceeding [great]: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians.
It has been said that natural death is where you die by yourself without the help of a doctor.
2. The physicians of this world are not free but the great physician is.
Isa 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for [that which is] not bread? and your labour for [that which] satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye [that which is] good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
And with the average salary of family physicians here in America at $144,000 dollars (£76,000 GBP) and specialist well above that you can just like our woman spend all you have and still be the worse for it. This gives credence to the master forger of all lies when he stated, And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life. Notice she spent all she had, though the text does not say that after she was penniless the visit stopped ---but the norm is they do. It spells fee not free.
3. Yet, spiritually men often spend all that they have as far as time and effort to make them feel better about themselves. Some try self-reformation and religion, but the more self-reformation and religion that is applied the whiter the sepulchre.
(Matthew 23:27) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead [men's] bones, and of all uncleanness.
Yet, to our woman’s credit she still knew she was unclean (Lev. 15:25). While this issue was obvious to her, a whited sepulchre will not see his uncleanness.
Pro 16:2 All the ways of a man [are] clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.
Whites sepulchres do not relish their own spiritual poverty and the words of Solomon are adverse to their own self-deception. Pro 20:9 Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
Why, because he has spend that all he has on self-reformation or religion and to recognize his uncleanness would reveal spiritual bankruptcy. However, we who are saved should remember that prior to the Great Physician all of us were as lepers with our hand over our mouths crying unclean (Lev.13: 45).
4.The “spiritual physicians” of this world want you to go to them and not to Jesus. And if by chance you complain that you still have an issue of uncleanness, they will recommend diver treatments of penance, good works or religious ritual. Yet, some of the more liberal minded may tell you that you have no issue at all and ye will not surely die (Gen.3:4). However, unless your conscience has been seared (1Tim 4:2) you will labour more and more and be the worst for it.
(Romans 4:4) Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.
These religious physicians would rather have you die than go to Jesus, just asks Lazarus.
John 12:10-11 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; (11) Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
Was it not they who wanted to kill the Great Physician because of envy and position (Matt.27:18).
John 11:48 If we let him thus alone, all [men] will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
5. Even though she was penniless, diseased and had nothing to offer, she was not turned away. And even in spite of the multitude (5:31) Jesus can be reach with the hand of faith.
1 Corinthians 1:26-27 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]: (27) But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
Jesus did not ask she had any insurance or had money to pay a fee, but gave her assurance and it was free.This Physician need not to read a chart to find about her, but has already read her heart. Well glory to God there is no waiting room and he does not send out a hireling to let you know the “the doctor will see you now”.
6. No matter how long you have had an issue or how severe this Physician can heal the soul. You are not just another patient but a son or daughter. Yet, even though we approach The Physician of all physicians with fear and trembling when we leave his office we go in peace. He will never have you make another appointment to see if his treatment had dried up the issue. However we must remind ourselves to fall down in prayer and tell him all the truth. This is done so we can enjoy our salvation and always have peace.
Mark 5:25-34 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, (26) And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, (27) When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. (28) For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. (29) And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in [her] body that she was healed of that plague. (30) And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? (31) And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? (32) And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. (33) But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. (34) And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
If you are not 100% sure that you are going to
Heaven when you die, enter in at the the door:
John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
