Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The throne of God, “the center of life and power,” was presented in the form of a reading, which identified the four living creatures to represent the beings redeemed from the earth and taken to Heaven with Jesus after His resurrection. The reading appears below. (Read more below.)
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says organic lollipops can now be bought to suggest they are not harmful to eat. Look at the ingredients. Don’t be fooled. We must be wise. Organic means not tainted with chemicals. GMOs or genetically modified organisms means that the GMO food typically has a gene not normally found in it, no matter how “perfect” it looks. Looks can be deceiving. And the effects of consuming GMOs are not wholly known yet. But it has been noted that with GMOs has arisen a surge of autoimmune diseases, says Pastor Flemons. Avoid buying any produce beginning with the number 8. It has been genetically modified. Produce numbered with the first digit being 9 is organic. And 4 means that it has been conventionally grown. Pastor Flemons encourages you to eat more fruits and vegetables, preferably organic or grown from your own garden. (For additional details, please listen to the recording.)

Sharing Time Listeners added to the conversation about GMOs and organically grown produce and how to wisely shop for them, including foods marked “vegan.” They also shared their gardening and witnessing successes.

Words of Encouragement
Hebrews 4:22, 23 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind.
Hebrews 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Also read OHC 214.)
For Heaven’s Sake…
“A Living Throne. The throne of God is the center of life and power, from which heavenly messengers speed on divine errands like a “,whirlwind” and a “flash of lightning.” Eze. 1:4,14. They are ministering spirits, sent forth to minister to them who shall be heirs of salvation.” Heb. 1:14. They are sent forth from Him who is on the throne, for “out of the throne proceed” not only “lightnings,” but also “thunderings and voices” “as of a trumpet.” Rev. 4:5; 1:10.
“In the midst of the throne” – “on each side of the throne, all around it” (Moffatt) are four living creatures who, like burning coals of fire, and like lamps “ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.” Eze. 1:13,14. They are full of eyes “before and behind.” Eze. 10:12; Rev. 4:6. And “their wings (are) joined one to another.” Eze. 1:5,9. This would indicate that each one is a group of beings. John says the first group was like a lion, king of beasts, representing Him as king, the ox as servant, the man representing His humanity, and the flying eagle His divinity.
These four groups have been redeemed from the earth. Rev. 5:8-10. The only Bible record of a redeemed multitude who are now in heaven are those who came out of the graves after His resurrection,” Matt. 27:52,53, and ascended with Christ to associate with Him as priests in the closing work of redemption. Rev. 5:9,10. Accompanying each was a wheel, a living wheel, “for the spirit of the living creature was in them.” Eze. 10:9,17. They were “so high that they were dreadful.” Their rims and spokes were “full of eyes all round.” Eze. 1: 18, Moffatt. They “were as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel. Their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels were full of eyes round about, even the wheels that they four had.” Eze. 10: 10,12. From this it would seem that the four wheels, like the four living creatures, are groups of celestial beings arranged in the form of wheels, or else a part of the living creatures themselves. However this may be, surely wings and wheels, whirlwinds and lightnings are far from suggesting immobility.“
