The Law of God heals the sick
(2ndAs Written:2ond Corinthians 5th ChapII Cor 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. II Cor 5:2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: II Cor 5:3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. II Cor 5:4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. II Cor 5:5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. II Cor 5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: II Cor 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) II Cor 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. II Cor 5:9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. II Cor 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. )

David, The Hebrew bard, sang “How manifold are thy works O, Lord In wisdom hast thou made them all the earth is full of thy riches”Ps 104:24 O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. . Job said, “He stretcheth out the North over the empty place he hangeth the earth on nothing”Job 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. That was a simple and grand statement of the supremacy of Spirit We know His law governs all that is and that which is not governed by God, is not. We know it dropeth from the diadem of the year the emerald spring at the return of the vernal equinox. Inspires the voices of nature with melody sweeter than a lay along the moon-lit lake or the sound of vintage bells from the villages on the Rhine. Without its notice not a sparrow falleth or a spray buddeth within the vale or a star is lost from the brow of night; beauty, and balm, sunshine, and song, wait upon this law; it bringeth the leaves to clothe the tree's nakedness and the blossoms to feed the bee --
