Worship: Three Orders of Priesthood / Wellness: The Best Medicine

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  God wants us to realize that He has made us royal. He called us into a royal priesthood. “We just don’t act like it,” says Pastor Flemons. And we certainly don’t deserve it. It is only the result of God’s love for us, he says. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says the very best medicine is the Holy Spirit. It is not enough to simply say you are trusting in the Holy Spirit. You must know Him for true healing. But not all believe this; and for their unbelief, they cannot find true healing. (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement

Proverbs 3:1, 2  My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

James 1:22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. (Also read PH096 43.2, also in Testimonies on the case of Elder EP Daniels, August 6, 1886.)

For Heaven’s Sake…

“From the time sin entered this world, three distinct orders of priests are brought to view in the Scriptures.

“First: in the patriarchal period, from Adam to Jacob, every patriarch was the priest of his own household. This may be called the Patriarchal order of priests. It continued until, and at least to some extent during, the bondage of Israel in Egypt. Throughout this period, the family altar was the only sanctuary. Before the flood this altar was at the gate of Eden, PP 62, where the Shechinah glory abode, and angels were stationed ‘to keep the way of the tree of life.’ Gen. 3:24. Later, the members of each household met for morning and evening worship and for the offering of the sacrifice that expressed their faith in the coming Redeemer.

“Second: at the time of their deliverance from Egypt, after Israel had reached Sinai, the Lord chose the tribe of Levi for the service of the sanctuary which was constructed at that time, and He set apart Aaron of the tribe of Levi to be the high priest. Thus the Aaronic, or Levitical, order of priests was established. This signal favor was conferred upon the tribe of Levi because of their loyalty to God when Israel apostatized in the worship of the golden calf. Ex. 32:26. The Levitical order, or the Aaronic priesthood, extended to the cross, and then came to an end. From that time, there has been no divinely appointed order of earthly priests. The earthly priesthood ended at the cross.

“Third: at the ascension of Christ the priesthood was transferred to the heavenly sanctuary. Then Christ was anointed High Priest, and the priesthood of Christ began.”

For Health’s Sake…

“The view held by some that spirituality is a detriment to health, is the sophistry of Satan. The religion of the Bible is not detrimental to the health of either body or mind. The influence of the Spirit of God is the very best medicine for disease. Heaven is all health; and the more deeply heavenly influences are realized, the more sure will be the recovery of the believing invalid. The true principles of Christianity open before all a source of inestimable happiness. Religion is a continual well-spring, from which the Christian can drink at will, and never exhaust the fountain.” {CTBH 13.2}

Believe and be healed. Let your works show your faith that healing may be yours. For faith without works is dead. Even so, your works must be in harmony with the Word of God. Only then can true healing be realized. Therefore, believe and be healed.
