Worship: The Holy Anointing Oil / Wellness: Meals Before Pills

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The tabernacle was erected and furnished. But before any services could be conducted in it, it must be anointed with a special anointing oil. As with everything connected with salvation through the sanctuary, the anointing oil had to be made according to strict directions. Four specific sweet spices: myrrh, cinnamon, calamus, and cassia–all represented Christ.

“These spices, weighing about 48 pounds (Moffatt) were compounded in an hin (1.5 gal., Moffatt) of olive oil. Ex. 30:23-25, thus making sufficient for anointing the priests and the sanctuary. The olive oil representing the Holy Spirit, and the four fragrant spices symbolizing Christ, being ‘compounded’ indicates the close cooperation of Christ and His representative, the Holy Spirit. This accounts for the warning given against compounding any like it or using it for any common purpose, under penalty of being cut off from Israel. Ex. 30:31-33.”

Not only were the tabernacle and its furnishings anointed, so were the priests. Likewise, so must all of God’s true followers be anointed for successful service. However, Pastor Flemons made this point vitally clear. “The anointing of the Holy Spirit doesn’t make you dance. The Holy Spirit makes you fragrant with the character of Christ.”

[For additional details, please read 1 Corinthians 3:9, 16; 6:19; Galatians 5:16-25; Romans 6:16-25; Romans 7:19; “The Holy Anointing Oil” from Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 198 original. PTG 269 latest edition. PTG 149, 150 online.)  For additional details, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 260, “Hover O’er Me, Holy Spirit.]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, introduced Meals Before Pills. A major outreach project of Times of Refreshing, Meals Before Pills promotes proper diet and lifestyle as both a preventative and curative lifestyle plan. A book with the same title will be published and available at a later date, says Pastor Flemons. He then recited the poem “The Fence or the Ambulance.” The poem, he says, sends the message that we need meals before pills. He advises following the REFRESHING Way lifestyle before being rushed to the ER.

(For further details, please listen to the recording and visit the links to the full poem and the REFRESHING Way lifestyle.)

Words of Encouragement

Hebrews 11:8  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 44.)

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 40.)

Worship: Ram’s Skin Dyed Red / Wellness: The Fence or the Ambulance

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The sanctuary’s roof was made of four coverings that “represent the four phases of the life and work of Christ in the plan of salvation.” The outer covering was made of badgers’ skin, already discussed. Beneath it was rams’ skins dyed red, “a symbol of sacrifice and suffering.” It points to Christ, “who ‘became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.’ . . In the life of the Christian this covering symbolized the covenant he makes with God by sacrifice. . . It indicates that, like Paul, he is crucified with Christ. It represents complete consecration, absolute submission and unquestioning loyalty to his Ruler. . . . The covering of rams’ skins dyed red represents the sacrifice of Christ not only when He poured out His blood on Calvary but the entire experience of His sacrifice to the very end of His redemptive work.”

[For additional details, including details about the various sacrificial offerings in which rams were used, please read Psalm 50:5; Isaiah 45:22; Acts 4:12; Matthew 1:21; Romans 5:7,8. Also read “The Covering of Red Rams’ Skins” in The Path to the Throne of God: The Sanctuary, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck, PTG 113, 114 original; PTG 160 new edition; PTG 85, 86 online. Also listen to the recording and hear Pastor Flemons sing a Scripture song based on Galatians 2:20, the hymn “Is Your All on the Altar of Sacrifice Laid?” and Hymn 530 “It Is Well With My Soul.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, recited the poem “The Fence or the Ambulance.” The poem underscores the problem in modern medicine today. People too often go with the flow of the world community: taking pills, adding toxins to toxins, to dissipate only the symptoms of a disease, rather than the disease itself. TOR Wellness Ministry recommends preventing disease. To prevent disease and early death, it takes a good diet and right principles of living, based on the Bible, God’s manual for humanity. TOR uses the acronym REFRESHING to list the principles of biblical wellness. It is an easy and handy reference to encourage choosing to build a fence around your health, choosing to protect and well guard your health, rather than to abuse it and habitually call the ambulance.

(For further details, please read the “The Fence or the Ambulance” here and listen to the recording.)
