Worship: God’s Law Unchangeable / Wellness: Juicing, the Fountain of Youth

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons discussed how God’s law of liberty is unchangeable. If He could simply change His law, His only son, Jesus, would not have had to die for our sins, he said. For sin is the transgression of God’s law, and the wages of sin is death, according to Romans 6:23.

The whole duty of man is in fearing God and in keeping God’s commandments. To fear God is to obey Him. When we really know God, it will be evident that we know Him. It will be manifested in our love for Him. For Jesus said that if we love Him, we would keep, that is, obey His commandments. (Read John 14:15.) God’s very law is love, because it is the transcript of God’s character. For God Himself is love, according to 1 John 4:8.

Also, as the transcript of God’s character, which is perfect, God’s law is perfect. (Read Psalm 19:7 and Matthew 5:48.) Neither can the law change, because God Himself says, “I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed” Malachi 3:6. “Whatever God does is perfect, and therefore cannot be changed. To change that which is perfect, would make it imperfect,” says Sarah Peck.

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, shared an article published on the website of the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group: BeverlyHillsMD.com. It is a rare thing to hear surgeons direct potential patients to nutrition, rather than to surgery, for flawless skin. These surgeons point to the most dynamic vegetables and fruits to achieve a healthy body and brighter more radiant skin.

They say, “For the potent anti-aging juice, and to get that skin glowing, here are 9 powerhouse plants to feed into your juicer.” They list carrots, kale, beets, parsley, ginger, watercress, lemons, and garlic. After juicing your veggies, they advise pouring the juice into a blender and adding avocados, which they say should never be “left out of your beauty tonics.” “Avocados are also rich in anti-aging antioxidants, like beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E.” The Beverly Hills article provides details of each ingredient and the benefits you can expect.

Words of Encouragement

Revelation 3:12   Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. (Also read Ye Shall Receive PowerYRP 366.)

Proverbs 9:10  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. (Also read My Life Today, ML 106.)

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  “‘The temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament.’ Revelation 11:19. The ark of God’s testament is in the holy of holies, the second apartment of the sanctuary. In the ministration of the earthly tabernacle, which served ‘unto the example and shadow of heavenly things,’ this apartment was opened only upon the great Day of Atonement for the cleansing of the sanctuary. ” GC 433.1  (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that medical school will tell you that fibroids are associated with excess estrogen and birth control pills and even hormone replacement therapies. But what they won’t tell you is that excess estrogen is the main cause of reproductive cancers in both women and men. They won’t tell you that excess estrogen comes from eating the flesh of animals or that excess estrogen holds onto fat. Nor will they tell you that vegans produce excess estrogen when they are stressed out. They also produce excess estrogen from a lack of adequate rest or exercise and other lifestyle choices that clog up the body system.

Words of Encouragement

Psalm 119:89  For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

Revelation 21:5  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write for these words are true and faithful.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“Therefore the announcement that the temple of God was opened in heaven and the ark of His testament was seen points to the opening of the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary in 1844 as Christ entered there to perform the closing work of the atonement. Those who by faith followed their great High Priest as He entered upon His ministry in the most holy place, beheld the ark of His testament. As they had studied the subject of the sanctuary they had come to understand the Saviour’s change of ministration, and they saw that He was now officiating before the ark of God, pleading His blood in behalf of sinners. {GC 433.1}

“The ark in the tabernacle on earth contained the two tables of stone, upon which were inscribed the precepts of the law of God. The ark was merely a receptacle for the tables of the law, and the presence of these divine precepts gave to it its value and sacredness. When the temple of God was opened in heaven, the ark of His testament was seen. Within the holy of holies, in the sanctuary in heaven, the divine law is sacredly enshrined—the law that was spoken by God Himself amid the thunders of Sinai and written with His own finger on the tables of stone. {GC 433.2}

“The law of God in the sanctuary in heaven is the great original, of which the precepts inscribed upon the tables of stone and recorded by Moses in the Pentateuch were an unerring transcript. Those who arrived at an understanding of this important point were thus led to see the sacred, unchanging character of the divine law. They saw, as never before, the force of the Saviour’s words: ‘Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law.’ Matthew 5:18. The law of God, being a revelation of His will, a transcript of His character, must forever endure, ‘as a faithful witness in heaven.’ Not one command has been annulled; not a jot or tittle has been changed. Says the psalmist: ‘Forever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven.’ ‘All His commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever.’ Psalm 119:89111:7, 8{GC 434.1}

“In the very bosom of the Decalogue is the fourth commandment, as it was first proclaimed: ‘Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.’ Exodus 20:8-11{GC 434.2}

“The Spirit of God impressed the hearts of those students of His word. The conviction was urged upon them that they had ignorantly transgressed this precept by disregarding the Creator’s rest day. They began to examine the reasons for observing the first day of the week instead of the day which God had sanctified. They could find no evidence in the Scriptures that the fourth commandment had been abolished, or that the Sabbath had been changed; the blessing which first hallowed the seventh day had never been removed. They had been honestly seeking to know and to do God’s will; now, as they saw themselves transgressors of His law, sorrow filled their hearts, and they manifested their loyalty to God by keeping His Sabbath holy.” {GC 434.3}
