Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The oil for the candlestick in the Holy Place of the sanctuary was pure and beaten and was caused to burn continually, like the Holy Spirit, who is the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of God. He is God, the third person of the Godhead, with God the Father and God the Son. The three are one in purpose, but they are three individual divine beings, each with separate roles in the plan of salvation for mankind.
We refrain, however, from the use of the term Trinity. Just as the word “gay” no longer simply means happy, but has another meaning in broad use, the term Trinity no longer means simply three. It carries a deeply Catholic doctrinal definition unsupported by Scripture.
Nevertheless, the oil was beaten, showing that the Holy Spirit, like Christ, suffered and is suffering with humanity. As He reads the hearts in prayer and presents them to Christ, He does it with groanings that cannot be uttered. It is He, the Holy Spirit, who moves upon the heart to bring about a great sorrow for sins committed and sorrow for divine biddings omitted. It is He who is striving with the heart of man to love and to obey, to forgive and be forgiven, to trust in the unfallible Word of God, and to be led into all truth. He continually strives or suffers long with man to help them become true servants of God that perfectly reflect the image of Jesus Christ, who is God the Son and the Son of man.
Jesus said, “Whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven” (Luke 12:10). Matthew testifies of the same statement, but recalls Jesus adding that the sin would not be forgiven “neither in this world, neither in the world to come” (Matthew 12:32).

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that excess estrogen can cause heavy menstrual bleeding. He says that the bleeding can be reduced and stopped by adhering to what he calls the REFRESHING Way principles of biblical health. It includes not eating animal products (including meat, dairy and eggs), which are sources of natural estrogen, with added estrogen injections for rapid growth. It means reducing stress, which increases estrogen production in the body. It means exercising and drinking adequate water daily. It means daily getting proper rest and maintaining a fresh supply of air.
But there is also help in the herbal kingdom. Shepherd’s purse, which can be taken orally as a tea or tincture, or applied to the skin in the form of a cream or ointment, is recommended for reversing excess menstrual bleeding. Pastor Flemons recommends taking the tincture one week prior to the onset of the menstrual period and continuing until a few days after the period. He recommends taking 20 to 40 drops three times a day. The tincture gets into the system faster than the tea, he says. But you can make the tea strong.
Shepherd’s purse can be effective against excessive bleeding and a number of other conditions, including minor wounds, diarrhea, and postpartum bleeding. The herb is “pretty popular,” says Pastor Flemons, and can be found in any “decent health food store in your area.”

Sharing Time Pastor Flemons read a text that he received during the broadcast. It cautions us to “be alert to all the warnings in nature; the increase in earthquakes, fires, flooding, and hurricanes as signs of the angels still holding back the winds of strife.”
Special Prayer Please include in your prayers today listener 6964, who uttered no request. But three others asked that we pray for Shauntavia to receive and believe the Truth, for Sis. David’s family and her health, and for those bracing for the hurricane.

Words of Encouragement
2 Timothy 4:7, 8 I have fought a good fight, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. (Also read Lt207-1899.8.)
Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. (Also read RC 374.2-374.4.)
