Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The image of Daniel 2 was a dream of the king of Babylon, given by the living God. It could only be interpreted by Daniel, the prophet. (Read more below.)
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that there is nothing more nutritious than sprouts for energy and strength and general health, even pain. He has begun to eat them like potato chips: straight out of the package. His energy is clearly evident and has been noted by listeners. And the pain he had is gone! He recommends you try them out. You don’t have to eat them like potato chips. And no, they don’t taste like potato chips. But you can add them to salads for a zing of flavor. There’s all kinds of sprouts. There’s red clover sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, radish sprouts, mung bean sprouts and on and on. You can grow them yourself. “You don’t need a green thumb,” he says. And you can sprout for pennies. But you may also buy sprouting jars and follow the directions.

Words of Encouragement
Luke 21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
James 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
For Heaven’s Sake…
The dream confirmed that Babylon was the world power, represented by the head of gold. It also foretold the kingdoms that would rule the earth in succession. The succeeding world powers were represented by the breast and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, legs of iron, and feet and toes made of iron, mixed with miry clay, and potter’s clay. It is now world history that Babylon ruled the world, then the Medo-Persian empire, followed by Greece, then Rome.
Pagan Rome, as it began to crumble, gave rise to the Roman Catholic Church as a world power. This period of Papal Rome is known also as the Dark Ages. “The toes extending from the feet represents the Protestant Movement that came off of the Roman Catholic Church,” says Pastor Flemons, who explained the two types of clay.
In the book, he states, “Therefore potter’s clay would be a church that God is working with. He is molding and shaping it. Miry clay, however, was clay that the potter could not use. It was bad clay that could not be used to make a good vessel. It is the clay that is discarded as the vessel is formed. Therefore miry clay represents a church gone bad. The first thing that was revealed about the feet and toes was that the iron was mixed with potter’s clay. Then the prophecy declared that the iron was mixed with miry clay. Throughout all ages extending to the end of time, there will be commandment keepers (potter’s clay). They will coexist with those who have placed tradition above the word of God (miry clay). At various times, they will be persecuted by secular governments and apostate Christians. But the greatest tool in Satan’s hand is the combination of church and state (miry clay mixed with iron). This combination causes religious laws to be legislated. This combination put Daniel in the lion’s den, the three Hebrew worthies in the fiery furnace and Jesus Christ on the cross. This deadly combination is the foundation pillar of Catholic power, as she seeks to punish all heretics who dissent from her doctrines and practices.”
During this period of earth’s history Christ returns, and dominion is given to an everlasting kingdom: the Kingdom of the God of Heaven, represented by the stone that crushed the entire image in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 2.
