Good day to all. I must say that I am joyful and alive, wishing to share some thoughts with those who may be interested.

My focus today is on bone marrow, and a verse in the Bible that mentions it.

The bone marrow is an important part of the body for health and life. When it functions correctly, your body functions just like it was created to function. Healthy, strong, and alive. Bone marrow produces blood cells (erythrocytes) that carry oxygen to tissue. It produces platelets or thrombocytes which prevent bleeding and aid in clotting of blood. It produces granulocytes (neutrophils, basophils and eosinophils) which fight infections from bacteria, fungi, and other parasites, as well as other functions.

It makes B-lymphocytes which produce antibodies, and T-lymphocytes which directly kill or isolate invading cells.

Stem cells, another very important product is also in the bone marrow. These cells have the capacity to form various cells of the body including osteoblasts (bone forming), chndrocytes (cartilage), myocytes (forming of muscles), as well as other cells. Then there are the endothelial stem cells that form blood vessels.

But when the bone marrow is adversely affected, it will produce illnesses, often with physical death soon behind.

What are some of the things that destroy or damage bone marrow?

Toxic chemicals, certain medicines, chemotherapy, and possibly poor eating habits. Along with these, we can include viruses, genetic conditions, and I am sure there are more.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

When reading Hebrews 4:12, we are told that God’s word even penetrates the bone marrow. What Hebrews 4:12 is saying, is that not only will the Word of God penetrate soul and spirit, but also the bone and marrow. He will also touch your joints and marrow, and even change the health of your body if need be. And when He does, you will know. Wether it be a feeling of better health, joints and bones no longer aching, and no more being short of breath, with even your blood tests showing all is normal.

Now it came to pass that Jesus was going to the city of Nain, and there was a great multitude with him. As he came near the city, lo one dead was being carried forth , and only son of his mother, and she a widow, and a great multitude followed her. And the Lord having seen her, was moved with compassion toward her, and said to her, “be not weeping.” Coming near, he touched the bier, and said, “Young man, to thee I say, Arise,” and the dead sat up, and began to speak, and he gave him to his mother.  Luke 7.

What is the picture here? There are two groups of people on a certain path, each group coming towards each other. One carrying the body of her only son, to bury him and say goodbye. The other, Gods only Son to say hello. So life came forward (for in Him is life), and death meets life on that road. One only son is dead, and the other one only son is the life and the resurrection. Jesus stops her, has compassion on her, touches the stretcher, and tells the young man to arise, and he does.

God’s word is living, and when it touches death, death always gives way to life.
