Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The royal color of blue is the color of heaven itself and is a symbol of heavenly truth. The blue robe of the ephod was worn over the high priest’s embroidered coat. Noticeably, at its lowest fringes were bells and pomegranates, 72 in all according to Jewish custom. The sound of the bells and pomegranates indicated the location of the priest in the sanctuary.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, read from a health.news article, which reported that losing your nest egg can kill you. Researchers at Northwestern University found that a wealth shock has damaging longterm health implications. Major financial losses increases risk of death by 50 percent. Worry about the future can kill. Pastor Flemons says wealth should not adversely affect one’s health. Trusting in God, whether you are rich or poor, should have the greater effect on your health. The Bible in Matthew 13 tells of types of hearers of the Word of God and the deceitfulness of riches. Rather than trusting in money and losing your life, it is far better to trust in God and have a rich life. (Listen to the recording for additional details.)

Words of Encouragement
Colossians 1:26-28 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: to whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: who we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 1:9-11 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness. (Read also AA 471.)
For Heaven’s Sake…
Pastor Flemons says that it is important that we “know where our high priest is.”
Moses was a type of Christ. Before the high priest ever ministered in the holy places of the sanctuary, Moses went in and anointed the furnishings of the holy place and the most holy place. That anointing also represented the ascension of Jesus to His Father in the most holy place to receive the approval of His sacrifice. Like the anointing of the sanctuary by Moses, this divine approval preceded the official ministration of Jesus in the holy places of the heavenly sanctuary.
It must be pointed out that Desmond Ford, says Pastor Flemons, missed the type and antitype of Exodus 40:9: the anointing of the holy places of the sanctuary prior to the ministrations there of the high priest.
Before we actually get to heaven, says Pastor Flemons, we should follow the bells and pomegranates and live like we are already in heaven.
(Please listen to the recording to hear more important details and read John 20:17; Exodus 40:9.)
