Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The sanctuary’s roof was made of four coverings, which “represent the four phases of the life and work of Christ in the plan of salvation. The outer covering was made of badgers’ skin. It was dark brown or black. It was leather tough, durable and inconspicuous, and it afforded complete protection of the priceless gold, silver and brass inside the sanctuary. It was well adapted to shield its precious inner furnishings from “the evil eye of Arab marauders who roamed in the desert.”
Just so, Jesus is our covering, our protection from Satan, the devil who roams about seeking someone to destroy. Just so, Jesus Christ the Messiah took the outward form of lowly humanity. “‘Beneath the lowly guise of Jesus’ was ‘the presence of Divinity.’ Thus ‘His glory (His true beauty) was veiled.’ DA 43, 63. Passing down through these coverings toward that which represents heaven itself, the badgers’ skin covering suggests that we should approach God with sincerity, simplicity, and humility.” PTG

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, read from a CNN.com article that reminds us of the basic fact that doctors are only human. They make mistakes and then try to cover them up. They are fearful. They are afraid of being sued. They want to make as much money as possible. And they don’t want their patients knowing that they are financially dependent on the drugs and devices they often prescribe.
After all, it’s not their fault that the “medical system pays doctors handsomely to do medical procedures, but does not reimburse well for talking to, counseling and spending time with patients.” Just to make ends meet, just to meet their financial obligations, they are “often forced to see four or more patients per hour.” And then it must be noted that they just don’t know everything. They can’t. They’re only human. They sometimes give wrong information to patients and aren’t even aware of what they are doing.
Yes. It is obvious. The health care system needs to be transformed. But of course, there are no simple solutions.
Therefore, patients and their families must be responsible for their own health. Do your own research. And don’t be afraid to ask good questions and demand answers to your questions. Better yet, be willing to get an advocate, if necessary. After all, doctors are only human.
That is why we should be even more willing to follow God’s way. He is not a human that He should lie. (Read Numbers 23:19 KJV.) Follow Him. Follow His principles of biblical wellness. TOR lists them and makes them easy to remember in the acronym REFRESHING. We call it the REFRESHING Way lifestyle.

Words of Encouragement
Romans 8:31, 32 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Romans 13:11, 12 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. (Also read EW 48.1. )
