Worship: Psalms Regarding Christ / Wellness: Education or Medication

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Psalms 22-24 respectively show us the death, resurrection and ascension of Christ. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Drugs do not cure disease. They mostly tend to change the form and location of the disease. When health is regained, it is often because of the body’s own vital force to expel impurities and heal itself. In fact, the “free use of poisonous drugs” is at the “foundation of a vast amount of disease,” according to a statement read by Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness. The statement was “written over a hundred years ago,” he says. But it concludes back then, what many are only now concluding today: that “some of the drugs dispensed by physicians, act a part in laying the foundation of the liquor habit, the opium habit, the morphine habit, that are so terrible a curse to society.” {MH 126.4} “Restorative power,” it says, “is not in drugs but in nature.” We are not to use that which weakens the immune system. When challenged by disease, we are to assist the immune system in its effort to “expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system.” That takes an education wholly unlike that found in med schools that teach according to the Flexner Report.(For those details and more, please listen to the recording, and read the full statement below from The Ministry of Healing, by Ellen G. White.)

Words of Encouragement

Luke 9:24, 25  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

Luke 9:23  And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. (Read also 5T 135.3-135.4.)

For Heaven’s Sake…

“The twenty-second Psalm, called ‘The Calvary, or Golgotha Psalm,’ begins with the agonizing cry of Jesus, ‘My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?’ Mark 15:34. It ends with, ‘He hath done this!’ or, as the Hebrew has it, ‘It is finished!’ John 19:30.

“The twenty-third Psalm has been called ‘The Psalm of the Resurrection,’ because the resurrection follows His ‘walk through the valley of the shadow of death.’ It is a prophecy of the unspoken experiences of Jesus as He passed through the ‘valley.’ It expresses a marvelous triumph of faith, especially in its closing words:  . . .

“Following this is the twenty-fourth Psalm, which may be called ‘The Ascension Psalm.’ This Psalm of triumph is the climax of the two preceding ones. It foretells some of the wonderful experiences of Christ’s ascension from the court of this earth to His entrance into the heavenly sanctuary–into ‘heaven itself.’ Heb. 9:24.”

(For further details, listen to the recording and sing with Pastor Flemons, Hymn 251,  “He Lives.”)

For Health’s Sake…

“Education in health principles was never more needed than now. Notwithstanding the wonderful progress in so many lines relating to the comforts and conveniences of life, even to sanitary matters and to the treatment of disease, the decline in physical vigor and power of endurance is alarming. It demands the attention of all who have at heart the well-being of their fellow men. {MH 125.2}

“Our artificial civilization is encouraging evils destructive of sound principles. Custom and fashion are at war with nature. The practices they enjoin, and the indulgences they foster, are steadily lessening both physical and mental strength, and bringing upon the race an intolerable burden. Intemperance and crime, disease and wretchedness, are everywhere. {MH 125.3}

“Many transgress the laws of health through ignorance, and they need instruction. But the greater number know better than they do. They need to be impressed with the importance of making their knowledge a guide of life. The physician has many opportunities both of imparting a knowledge of health principles and of showing the importance of putting them in practice. By right instruction he can do much to correct evils that are working untold harm. {MH 126.1}

“A practice that is laying the foundation of a vast amount of disease and of even more serious evils is the free use of poisonous drugs. When attacked by disease, many will not take the trouble to search out the cause of their illness. Their chief anxiety is to rid themselves of pain and inconvenience. So they resort to patent nostrums, of whose real properties they know little, or they apply to a physician for some remedy to counteract the result of their misdoing, but with no thought of making a change in their unhealthful habits. If immediate benefit is not realized, another medicine is tried, and then another. Thus the evil continues. {MH 126.2}

“People need to be taught that drugs do not cure disease. It is true that they sometimes afford present relief, and the patient appears to recover as the result of their use; this is because nature has sufficient vital force to expel the poison and to correct the conditions that caused the disease. Health is recovered in spite of the drug. But in most cases the drug only changes the form and location of the disease. Often the effect of the poison seems to be overcome for a time, but the results remain in the system and work great harm at some later period. {MH 126.3}

“By the use of poisonous drugs, many bring upon themselves lifelong illness, and many lives are lost that might be saved by the use of natural methods of healing. The poisons contained in many so-called remedies create habits and appetites that mean ruin to both soul and body. Many of the popular nostrums called patent medicines, and even some of the drugs dispensed by physicians, act a part in laying the foundation of the liquor habit, the opium habit, the morphine habit, that are so terrible a curse to society. {MH 126.4}

“The only hope of better things is in the education of the people in right principles. Let physicians teach the people that restorative power is not in drugs, but in nature. Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system.” {MH 127.1}
