I just realized that Gilead is where they are in handmaids tale and Gilead is the company in Israel that is making the vaccine for all of us. When I got saved 15 years ago I kept having a reoccurring dream of Gilead. This Gilead is also the place of residence of the prophet Elijah the Tishbite (1 Kings 17:1). The famous balm of Gilead is mentioned by the prophet Jeremiah in a sermon addressed to Judah, and it was so potent that it could heal entire nations (Jeremiah 8:22,).Gilead means Perpetual Fountain, Heap Of Booty or As Long As We’re Rolling.
Jones’ Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names renders the name Gilead as Perpetual Fountain, but it means as much Heap Of Booty or As Long As We’re Rolling.
“Jesus Christ is the True Balm of Gilead who heals the Nations from the sickness of Sin, delivering us from Death to Life in the Spirit. Jeremiah 8:20-22, Matthew 9:35-38, Mark 2:1-17” AP
