Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The Christian experience is as a walk through the sanctuary from the outer court to the Most Holy Place. (Read more below.)
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, showed how you can stay healthy or overcome disease during this season of colds, flu and strep throat. He recommends Rocket Fuel. The ingredients–garlic, lemon juice, ginger, cayenne, and honey–have broad spectrum health benefits. It tastes like a strong ginger ale. For those with honey or sugar restrictions, honey may be omitted. Rocket Fuel is an excellent healthy drink and a powerful way to strengthen the immune system in general.

Words of Encouragement
Matthew 9:35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
Matthew 9:2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
For Heaven’s Sake…
First the person must be drawn to Christ. Christ is the door of the sanctuary. Christ has drawn us to Himself with a loving kindness that makes us aware of our need. (Read Jeremiah 31:3; Hosea 11:4).
Seeing ourselves in need of salvation, causes us to be sorry for sin and want to change for Christ’s sake. It is in the courtyard of the sanctuary that the sins are confessed and forgiven. The sins could be as red as crimson. Jesus promises that they can be made as white as snow. (Read Isaiah 1:18) At the altar of burnt offering, repentance is shown through confession of sins. For if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins. Then God cleanses us from all unrighteousness, as is symbolized at the laver. It is at the laver that justification is symbolized. (Read 1 John 1:9.)
Beyond the laver is the Holy Place, where sanctification of the Christian is symbolized. It is where the table of shewbread, a candlestick and an altar of incense are emblems of Christian growth. The bread symbolizes the Word of God by which the Christian is fed. It gives life and represents Jesus as the Bread of Life (John 6:35). For man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). The Christian learns to not rely on feelings, emotions and inclinations, but on the sure Word of God.
The altar of incense respresents the prayers of the saints. It was kept burning, symbolizing that communion with God must be continual. The Bible, in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, says we must pray without ceasing. It is not a constant position of kneeling in prayer. Rather, it is an attitude of continually communing with God.
As a result, Christians will show growth and grow by witnessing to others of the goodness of God to them. This is illustrated by the candlestick. This is also confirmed in Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Beyond the Holy Place is the Most Holy Place of the sanctuary. Sanctification in the Holy Place is the Christian’s passport into the Most Holy Place. It is the place of the Throne of God. It is where Jesus, our High Priest, advocates for the sinner before the Father. There is the Mercy Seat. It is where each Christian is judged as overcomer and is fully and forever pardoned, glorified and rewarded.
“If through the court experience, the righteousness of Christ has been imputed to us, covering all our past sins, and giving us reconciliation and justification; if, in the holy place, His righteousness is now being imparted to us, freeing us day by day from the power of sin, which leads to sanctification, and if we remain true and faithful to the end of life, then, and only then, shall we be prepared for glorification, typified in the most holy place.” PTG 121 (online version)
