Purge means to erase or remove completely, and that is exactly what I was told last week at my primary care doctor’s office.
It had been a while since I visited my primary care doctor since I was being checked by my nephrologist, gynecologist, hematologist/ oncologist and orthopedic surgeons. My nephrologist order labs every six months and my hematologist/ oncologist order labs every four months. So, I am in good hands, right? Yes and No!
Yes, because the specialists checked areas based on their specialized medical credentials. No, the primary care physician or ARNP care for my overall health. I decided to make a primary appointment for myself since it was time for our son’s physical.
After the ARNP reviewed my record, performed examination and placed orders for labs downstairs, she said, “You were seeing everyone else but have not been to primary care since 2019.” Wow! I had no idea it had been that long. She said, “You had one day left before we purge your record.” Thank God the Holy Spirit moved me to make an appointment for myself. Are we visiting everyone but God?
The event reminded me that God allowed man to obtain medical knowledge to care for the temple housing the Holy Spirit, but He alone has the specialized knowledge to care for our soul. His spiritual lab orders are written in the Bible. Where are you living with your spiritual lab orders?
I received a one-day warning but will not get a warning before the second coming of Jesus. We learned from reading the scriptures that Jesus will come like a thief in the night, and 2 Peter 1:10 tells to make our calling and election sure. Are you sure? Am I? Are we ready, or are we on the verge of having our names purge from the Book of Life?
