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.)

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. (Also read DA 439.)
