Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The growing river described in Ezekiel 47:9 and 12, is the same river described in Revelation 22:1 and 2. It is the river of life. It gives life and healing to everything that touches it.
“This river of life ‘issued out of the sanctuary,’ or as John says, proceded ‘out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.’ Rev. 22:1. . . . It is God’s purpose that His church in all its generations should bring life and healing to a sin sick world.
“As a church and as individual Christians, it is our privilege to have this life-giving experience. If we respond to the invitation ‘Follow Me,’ going with Jesus all the way from the altar in the court to the ark in the most holy place, we shall become like the waters of the river of life. Then those whom we contact from day to day will realize a life-giving healing influence, because ‘the waters they issue out of the sanctuary.'”
[For further details, please read Ezekiel 47:1-12; Revelation 22:1, 2; and “The Remnant a Life-giving Church” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 219 original; PTG 296, 297 latest edition; PTG 165 online.) And listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, and hear him sing Hymn 348, “The Church Has One Foundation.”]
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that the herb of the field is God’s farmacy. God gave us natural remedies to address chronic conditions. He never meant “toxic medications for chronic ailments.”
The original diet as described in Genesis 1:29, includes nuts, grains, and fruits. It also includes vegetables, like broccoli, says Pastor Flemons. He explained why he includes vegetables in the original diet, as opposed to some who do not. It is simple. They are herbs bearing seed, according to the Scripture. After sin, the body would naturally begin to deteriorate. Therefore God wisely provided the herb for healing. Read Genesis 3:18.

Special Prayer Please include in your prayers Listener 3637, who asks that we pray for his sleep apnea. He suffers from sleeplessness.
Sis. Karriem’s and Sis. Odessa’s friend Rodney thanks all the prayer warriors for praying for him. The surgeon decided that Rodney only needed stents for his heart. The scheduled heart surgery was canceled. But please pray for his diet and lifestyle to change for his complete healing.
And pray for Sis. Odessa, as she is driving to Indiana.
