SUDDENLY, the officials from ministry of health were looking for me. Something bad happened on my last flight It was essential that I contact them. A few days earlier, I had flown between two capitals of South America. On such a flight there was a person infected with measles and the officials needed to comply with a warning protocol.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), measles is an infection caused by a virus. At one time it was a pandemic disease. Although mortality rates have fallen worldwide, the disease still claims one hundred thousand lives each year, most under the age of five. That is why the CDC recommends that everyone get the vaccine because it is the only form of prevention.
The term “vaccine” was proposed by Louis Pasteur in 1881, in homage to Edward Jenner, who in 1796 invented the vaccine for smallpox, a disease which has been eradicated. Jenner noted that milking cows affected by cowpox (bovine measles) were not infected with human measles.
Hence, he inoculated a mild dose of a lesion from a milking cow to a healthy eight- year-old Child. At first, the child developed the disease in a mild form. When infected by the human measles, he later did not develop any symptoms. Immunization had occurred.
Paul says that the Word of God must dwell abundantly within us. The Jews had about ten thousand words in their vocabulary. For them, the word was more than just a sound. It was a living thing. It was a power-laden energy unit. This is recorded by the psalmist:
and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth…
For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded,
and it stood fast” (Ps. 33:6, 9).
The Greeks had about two hundred thousand words in their vocabulary. For them, the word was reason, that is, logos, wisdom, order, perfection, and power.
The Word already existed, it was not created. He was God, He was with God and everything was created by Him.
We are Infected, by the meals of sin, but by abundant doses
Of the only source of prevention.
To be immune, a daily dose, while fasting,
Of the Lord’s abundant and powerful Word is recommended.
