The Balm of Gilead

“…Since my people are crushed, I am crushed; I mourn and horror grips me. Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people…” Jeremiah 8:21-22 NIV [italics & emphasis mine]

Gilead was a beautiful country just beyond Jordan where a certain rare tree grew; the leaves from the branches of this tree were used to cure illnesses (Jer 51:8b); the tree was called the Balm. Ishmael travelling from Gilead carried it (Gen 37:25); when Children of Israel visited Joseph in Egypt their father instructed them to carry ‘the balm’ for Joseph.

The church today suffers enormous blows; people in church (born again, spirit filled, tongue talking sanctified saints) are physically sick, demon oppressed, riddled with poverty, problems in marriages has become a norm, problems at work and businesses…just to mention a few. Why? Where is the balm of Gilead???
