Words of Encouragement

Psalm 32:7  Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

Psalm 34:9-10  O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

***

For Heaven’s Sake…

#1 All predictions of true prophets must come true.

Jeremiah 28:9  The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him.

Deuteronomy 18:22  When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet that spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

#2 True prophets receive dreams and visions.

Numbers 12:6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

#3 The eyes of true prophets remain open in vision.

Numbers 24:4, 16  He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open. He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open.

#4 The breathing of true prophets stops during visions.

Daniel 10:17 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.

#5 The predictions of true prophets will not contain private interpretations.

2 Peter 1:20-21  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

#6 The predictions of true prophets will edify the church.

1 Corinthians 14:3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

#7 True prophets will speak that which harmonizes with Scripture.

[Correction] Isaiah 8:19-20  And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

#8 True prophets believe that Jesus Christ came in the flesh.

1 John 4:1-3  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

NOTE: Technically speaking, antichrist means “in place of” Christ, not “against” Christ.

#9 True prophets bear the fruit of the Spirit.

Matthew 7:15-16 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

The mystery of Jesus as God coming in the flesh will follow as our next topic.

 

For Health’s Sake…

#1 Eat a plant-based diet.

#2 Follow principles that promote good digestion: do not eat between meals; do not overeat; do not drink with meals, etc.

#3 Eliminate dairy products.

#4 Take Rocket Fuel (contains garlic, lemon, ginger, etc.). http://torwm.org/natural-remedies/rocket-fuel/

#5 Take 5 drops of lobelia (adult dose; children 2-3 drops).

#6 Take Lung Immune Tea (contains fenugreek and echinacea).

#7 Use colloidal silver (10ppm silver) in a nebulizer.

#8 Apply an Onion-Epsom salt pack over the chest.

#9 Massage eucalyptus or peppermint oil (or other menthol) on the chest.

Words of Encouragement

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.

Psalm 34:8  O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

***

 

For Heaven’s Sake…

The testimony of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

The Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:6,7, explains that those waiting for the coming of Jesus must have the testimony of Christ confirmed in us so that we are not lacking in any gift. “The spirit of prophecy is a gift,” says Pastor Flemons. It must be tested by the word of God. It must line up with the word of God. And the prophecies must come true and stand the test of time. Especially will this gift be beneficial, even necessary, just prior to the coming of Jesus. Joel speaks of this gift being manifested in these last days.

Joel 2:28  And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

The spirit of prophecy has been seen, just as Joel prophesied, in a young woman who is the world’s most prolific female author of all time, says Pastor Flemons. With only a third grade education, she wrote on Bible topics from Genesis to Revelation, the life of Christ, education, health, the family, and many other topics that are pertinent for us today with a depth of understanding that could only come from God. Much of what the world is now beginning to acknowledge about the relationship between one’s diet and health was said many years ago by Ellen G. White before her death in 1915.

As a result of her writings, Pastor Flemons was drawn to the ministry of healing as a young college student, per his testimony during the broadcast, and the Times of Refreshing Wellness Ministry was born more than fifteen years ago.

A free database of her writings, her biography, and evidence of her positive influence worldwide upon Christianity can be downloaded on your phone or laptop from the app store by searching her name, Ellen G.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s topic: The Test of a Prophet.

 

For Health’s Sake…

In particular, Psalm 119 provides several reasons to begin with understanding asthma. For one, understanding it motivates you to do what it takes to be faithful in overcoming in the face of temptation (verse 34). Understanding it will promote a greater desire to learn more about what to do (verse 73). When you understand it, you will live (verse 144), because you will be doing what God said (verse 125) and according to His word (verse 169).

Asthma is an allergy. An asthma attack is an allergic reaction caused by an excess of protein in your body. Undigested protein is a result usually of consuming animal products: meat and dairy. Vegetarians with asthma are usually consuming too much protein in the form of nuts and seeds and not enough green vegetables.

In fact, says Pastor Flemons, anything that hinders digestion hinders the digestion of protein: drinking with your meals, eating between meals, eating big meals late at night. The body, therefore sees the undigested protein as toxins and mounts an immune response, sending antibodies to the site of affection (the foreign protein) and creating a rise of histamine. Because histamine is a vasodilator, blood vessels swell in various parts of the body.

Swelling in the eyes causes them to itch. Swelling in the skin produces a rash. Swelling in the digestive tract causes an upset stomach. Swelling in the brain causes headaches, including migraines.

Swelling in the lungs is what we call asthma. Swelling in the lungs causes the bronchial tubes to constrict to give place for the expanding blood vessels. Consequently, you experience difficulty in breathing.

One tip, says Pastor Flemons, is to get rid of dairy in your diet, and you may get rid of asthma immediately. The protein in cow’s milk is much larger than the protein in human breast milk. The body is not able to handle the protein in cow’s milk very well, because it sees it as a foreign protein. More will come in the next broadcast.

Worship: Characteristics of God’s True Church / Wellness: Nature’s First Aid for Cuts and Burns

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  God’s true church is not a specific organization, corporation, or business structure. It is not a specific building. If it were, says Pastor Flemons, Jesus could not have said, “Your house is left unto you desolate” in Matthew 23:38. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  It really helps to know simple natural methods of first aid for typical cuts and burns. Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness and naturopathy, explains. (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement

Micah 7:18, 19  Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Psalm 34:6  This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

***

For Heaven’s Sake…

Jesus was referring to the Jewish nation, who had killed the prophets, stoned those sent to help them, and refused to receive Jesus as the Messiah.

God’s true church has two major identifying marks, according to Revelation 12:17:

“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

Because the Bible explains itself, Pastor Flemons used these supporting Bible texts that identify the dragon, the woman, and the remnant of her seed: Rev 12:9; Jeremiah 6:2; Isaiah 51:16; Exodus 26:12; and Joshua 23:12.

God’s true church (also called the woman and her seed, Zion, the remnant) keeps the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The dragon, Satan, is not angry at those who are already breaking God’s commandments, because he knows they will be lost if they fail to repent in time to be saved as promised.

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

 

For Health’s Sake…

Mix 1/4 cup of Epsom salts with just enough water to make a slush in a cup or bowl as required. Submerge the cut or burn. Add a cube of ice if desired. Immediate cooling and soothing and tissue rebuilding will begin. This mixture may be increased as necessary for larger burns.

Ground cayenne (or red) pepper, also known as capsicum, may tingle a bit, but it can be “put into an open wound, either in a fresh wound or an old ulcer, and it is very healing instead of irritating; but black pepper, mustard, and vinegar are irritating to an open wound and do not promote healing.” “Red pepper is one of the most wonderful herb medicines we have. We can do many things with it that we are not able to do with any other known herb. It should never be classed with black pepper, vinegar, or mustard. These are all very irritating; but red pepper is very soothing.” (Jethro Kloss, Back to Eden, p. 123.)

Words of Encouragement

Matthew 11:28-30  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Psalm 34:4  I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

***

For Heaven’s Sake…

Proverbs 13:10  Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

People don’t realize how much envy is involved in contentious relationships, says Pastor Flemons. It doesn’t have to be both parties in a contentious relationship; but at least one has pride. Otherwise, there would be no envy or contention. A person may be envious of another’s gifts or talents or advantage in life. And if that pride or envy is not overcome, a person can be brought to his or her own demise.

James 3:16  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

That’s why we are never to say what you will never do, says Pastor Flemons. If you refuse to overcome pride and envy, your life will be on a reckless course of evil. And you will eventually do the most horrendous thing, if given the opportunity.

The story of Saul and David in 1 Samuel 18:6-12, is a perfect example of why envy must be overcome and why we must be careful to not cultivate the love of approbation or approval or praise. This can become a serious defect of character, which can end in a fury of passion. We can go so far as to find it nearly impossible to repent. If we refuse to repent, we lose the favor of God. (Read p. 650 of Patriarchs and Prophets by Ellen G. White for a wonderful commentary on the relationship between Saul and David, after David killed Goliath. Here is the link:  http://www.whiteestate.org/books/pp/pp64.html.

Pastor Flemons pleads with all of us: “Let’s make sure there is no envy in our hearts.”

 

For Health’s Sake…

Plant-based anti-inflammatory sources can be a wonderful option for traditional pain relievers:

GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) is an omega-6 essential fatty acid that helps with inflammation pain just like 0mega-3s. The body converts it to anti-inflammatory chemicals, particularly beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis.

Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, similar to ibuprofen and Cox-2 inhibitors, and is best used for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Traditional medicines are steroids. Although they give a bit of relief, they also cause the body to suffer so many other conditions, including altering the adrenal glands to the point of shutting them down, which in turn inhibits many body functions. Ginger has been found to work better than some steroids with no ill effects.

Colloidal silver is best used when inflammation is caused by a fungus or bacteria or viral agents. It is nature’s antimicrobial. It is a mineral found in the earth. Colloidal silver is microscopic and is suspended in a liquid, similar to iron. Colloidal silver is 10 parts silver for ever one million parts of distilled water. You drink it to reduce inflammation.

Bromelain and papain are natural enzymes, which come from pineapple and papaya, respectively. They break down protein, like serrapeptase, a secretion from the cocoon of a caterpillar, which is used to break down the shell of the cancerous tumor. All these enzymes digest the other harmful toxins in the body and are inexpensive.

Bromelain and papain are also ingredients in the Times of Refreshing anti-inflammation tonic, which contains a great combination of joint nutrients like devil’s claw, yucca, alfalfa, and turmeric that will help without adding more toxins, which are the cause of disease. Pastor Flemons also recommends juicing to get the required nutrients into your body, drinking more water, exercising, and not eating the flesh of dead animals, which adds toxins and more inflammation.

For Heaven’s Sake…

Balaam induced the people of God to commit fornication. He suggested the pagan king of Moab hold a grand festival. A huge number of God’s people were easily induced to attend, because they trusted the prophet, although he had departed from doing God’s will.

They ventured upon the forbidden ground, and were entangled in the snare of Satan. Beguiled with music and dancing, and allured by the beauty of heathen” idol worship, they turned away from doing God’s will. As they indulged in feasting, they also indulged in wine, which “beclouded their senses and broke down the barriers of self-control. Passion had full sway,” and they “participated in the most degrading” ceremonies.  (Quotes are of Ellen G. White, Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 454.3, regarding Numbers 25.)

Even now, says Pastor Flemons, “We are on the borders of Canaan. Satan will do all he can to keep you out of the kingdom. You are safe only as you obey the word of the LORD.”

Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

For Heaven’s Sake…

Jeremiah 1:4-10  Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD. Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

The problem, says Pastor Flemons, is that counselors simply direct people toward careers that personally interest them. Typically, they are not directed to learn what is God’s will for their lives. Instead, people choose what is considered secure and typically lucrative careers and end up depressed for many years. Sometimes it takes nearly a lifetime, even after retirement, for people to learn what their real calling is.

But it is not too late, says Pastor Flemons, to submit yourself to God’s guidance. You can still have the most exciting part of your life doing God’s will. Even if it isn’t full-time ministry, God still has something for you to do that involves spreading the gospel so that as many as are willing might be saved.

Ask God to reveal to you what His will is for your life, and then look for opportunities to direct people to God wherever you are.

Eating and lying down before your meal has fully digested presents a health hazard, including risk of a heart attack. Drinking water instead helps prevent such risks. But we’ve learned that drinking water has other benefits as well.

“For people who want to control their weight or reduce their intakes of sugar, sodium and saturated fat, tap water may be what the doctor ordered,” says a recent article published on ScienceDaily.com.

The article essentially reported the findings of a new study published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics.  Researchers “examined the dietary habits of more than 18,300 US adults, and found the majority of people who increased their consumption of plain water by 1 percent reduced their total daily calorie intake as well as their consumption of saturated fat, sugar, sodium and cholesterol.” The study also reports that this is true regardless of race or ethnicity, educational background, weight, or any other category you can think of.

Essentially, when you drink more water, you’ll eat less bad food, says Pastor Flemons. He suggests only that you drink pure water and avoid tap water, unless you are dehydrated and have no other option.

For Heaven’s Sake…

In short, Paul says speakers must speak one at a time. In any gathering, that just makes common sense. Nevertheless, Paul’s advice was essential to avoid meetings that had begun convening with everyone speaking at the same time and women perhaps becoming unruly.

Paul says this about that in 1 Corinthians 14:23, 33:

23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? 

33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

To avoid such confusion, Paul gives these specific guidelines in 1 Corinthians 14:27-31:

27 If any man speak in an unknown [unfamiliar] tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.

30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.

31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

The Bible is clear about public meetings and the order for speaking to audiences that speak a language that is different from the speaker. We all do well to follow the guidelines for the sake of the gospel and for the sake of simply understanding any speaker.

 

For Health’s Sake…

What does a funeral meal consist of? We could list a lot of typical menu selections. However, here’s the example Pastor Flemons discussed: fried chicken, ham, macaroni and cheese, caramel cake, pie, and cola.

Fried anything tends to clog arteries, says Pastor Flemons. Chicken production (it’s no secret) depends on antibiotics and harmone injections for unnatural rapid cell division for quicker growth of the chicken population. The problem with that is this:  rapid cell division is essentially cancer.

Ham is full of horrible toxins. It is not fit for human consumption, according to Leviticus 11:7 and 8. It promotes disease (like diabetes), heart attacks, and strokes.

Macaroni and cheese promotes constipation (because of the cheese) more than any other thing. It acts like glue and sticks to the walls of our intestines. The dish is high in bad cholesterol. It is not heart-healthy food.

Caramel cakes and pies are primarily full of sugar and coated with sugar, which weakens the immune system. The other main ingredient is flour, which clogs the system. In caffeinated beverages, caffeine is combined with sugar. It is a poor combination for wellness. As a result, the nervous system is irritated, and unhealthy toxins are dumped into the bloodstream.

Collectively, this meal and others like it will put your health at risk. Over time your lifespan will be shortened, if no positive changes are made. God designed the body so that your body can endure much abuse and still heal if biblical wellness lifestyle practices are followed. Times of Refreshing Wellness Ministry exists to help put everyone on the proper course for wellness.

The next wellness retreat is scheduled to begin October 31. Space is available. For more details, visit this link: http://torwm.org/wellness-retreat/.

 

 

Worship: Speaking in Tongues, Pt 2 / Wellness: Quick Cold Remedy

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Speaking in tongues, says Pastor Flemons, is a gift of the Spirit to spread the gospel. Period. It is not proof of sanctification or that you have achieved some heightened spiritual level. Using the first twenty verses of 1 Corinthians 14, Pastor Flemons taught how the gift really functions for the church. (Read more below.)

Psalm 37:39-40  But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

For Heaven’s Sake…

Keep in mind, he said, the previous chapter is Apostle Paul’s famous discourse on love: what it is and is not. Also keep in mind that Paul is speaking to the church members at Corinth. At the outset of chapter 14, Paul reaffirms the need to “follow after charity [or love] and desire spiritual gifts.” But Paul quickly changes the topic to the importance of prophesying and the role of the diversity of languages within the church for growth.

The church must be edified. It must be fed divine truths that promote Christian maturity, both for the individual and the church as a congregation, even the whole Christian community worldwide despite its numerous different languages. Speaking, therefore, in a language that is not understood by the hearers prevents communication and progress at every level.

It would be as the Tower of Babel: confusion. (Pastor Flemons suggests reading Genesis 11.) As long as the people spoke the same language and were all agreed, there was nothing that they could not accomplish, God said in verse 6. It was shortly after the flood that had destroyed everything except Noah’s ark. They had begun building a tower to heaven. But God prevented it. He confounded their language so “that they may not understand one another’s speech” (Genesis 11:7). Once the language was split into multiple languages, the people could not understand one another. They could make no progress. Frustrated, they stopped building the city with its tower to heaven. Instead, they scattered to every corner of the earth.

During the season of Pentecost, these groups convened in Jerusalem. In order to witness to these vast groups now scattered all over the world, God miraculously provided communication between the speakers of the gospel and all those who heard that they may help spread the gospel in their region. Beyond that, those who carried the gospel and prophesied were given the gift of tongues or the gift to speak so that people of other languages could understand the gospel: the doctrine, the prophecies, the revelations.

The same is true today.

Who would dare speak only in Japanese to a group of English-only speaking people? “So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air” (1 Cor 14:9). This is Apostle Paul’s conclusion, who spoke “with tongues more than ye all.” He said, “Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than in ten thousand words in an unknown tongue” [or unfamiliar language] (1 Cor 14:19).

When it is fully understood what the Apostle Paul is saying here, what can be concluded about a group of people who normally speak the same language, but who gather in one church or place and all simultaneously begin muttering audible but unintelligible sounds?

Paul says, “Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me. Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church” (1 Cor 14:11-12).

 

For Health’s Sake…

“Drink ten 8-ounce glasses of water,” says Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness and naturopathy. Drink them as fast as you can within 45 minutes to an hour or less. Doing this will stop a cold or flu at the onset, because it flushes out toxins fairly quickly.

Doing this provides added benefits to every major body organ.

Kidneys need water for urination.

Lungs need water for respiration.

The colon needs water for defecation.

The liver needs water for detoxification.

The skin needs water for perspiration.

Sometimes water is all you really need, as too many fail to drink the required daily amount of water and end up with a lot of unnecessary ailments, including headaches. So how much water must you consume daily? Divide your weight by 2. Drink that amount of water in ounces. Just for easy computation, 100 pounds divided in half equals 50 pounds. If you weigh 100 pounds, you should drink a minimum of 50 ounces of water. Drink more if you are physically very active or talk a lot.

1 Peter 1:7  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than that of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

For Heaven’s Sake…

Speaking in tongues as described in Acts 2:1-18 is an event where people of one nation and one language spoke. Under the power of the Holy Ghost, every nation listening heard in his or her own native language. It was not gibberish or some unintelligible or other worldly language, as too many suppose. Neither was it associated with any bodily trances. It clearly is an event in which the word of God was miraculously spread into every language and tongue and people globally in one day. It was Pentecost, according to schedule as directed in Leviticus 23:15 and 16.

Acts 2:1-18

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

In this one day, three thousand were converted to Christianity, which was still very unpopular. (Read Acts 2:41.) It’s founder and central figure of belief had been unjustly crucified by the religious leaders of the day. The word was that He had amazingly arisen from the grave. Still, to join this group was considered risky business. But on this day and with the express purpose of saving souls, the Holy Spirit endorsed Christianity in a most publicly divine manner. Thereafter, “the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” (Acts 2:47).

 

For Health’s Sake…

It may be little thought of, but doctors have overwhelming challenges in their careers and in their personal lives. The quoted statements that follow are drawn from a HealthDay News article reported on MedlinePlus.gov. The article is based on a recent study that suggests mental health treatment for medical professionals are hindered due to a perceived stigma and fear of career repercussions.

“One in three women said she had been diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point since medical school. But only 6 percent of those who were ever diagnosed or treated for a mental condition reported that information to the state, the survey findings showed.

“Some doctors even admitted to seeking care in a different city or health system, paying cash for mental health-related prescriptions or writing their own prescriptions for medication.”

Daily doctors watch patients die. Depression and anxiety become too common within the profession, where doctors are not taught to rely on God. A growing number of medical professionals are beginning to turn to biblical wellness training, as they see cures by natural means that too often don’t happen with pharmaceuticals.

Times of Refreshing Wellness Ministry welcomes and invites medical professionals to its wellness retreats for a REFRESHING 17-day stay and be introduced to biblical wellness.

Times of Refreshing spells biblical wellness R-E-F-R-E-S-H-I-N-G: The R is Rely on God; E – Eat healthy; F – Fresh air; R – Rest; E – Exercise; S – Self-control; H – H2O, Drink water; I – In the sun; N – Never give up; and G – Give to others.
