Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The seven-branched candlestick represents the “seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God”(Revelation 4:5). “‘These seven spirits of God are sent forth into all the earth’ by the Lamb, Rev. 5:6, in fulfillment of His last promise to the disciples, ‘I will send. . .unto you the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost’. . .” The seven lamps are the Holy Spirit of God, by whom the children of God are “sealed unto the day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:30).
Therefore, let us not “through neglect of the Word, of prayer, and of service,” grieve the Holy Spirit of God and “neglect so great salvation” (Hebrews 2:3).
[For additional details, please read Revelation 4:5; 5:6; John 16:7; 14:26; Ephesians 4:30; Hebrews 2:3; and “The Candlestick a Symbol of the Holy Spirit” in The Path to the Throne of God: The Sanctuary, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 144 original; PTG 198, 199 new edition; PTG 110, 111 online) Also please listen to the recording and hear Pastor Flemons sing Hymn 260, “Hover O’er Me, Holy Spirit.”]
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, described the benefits of water on every bodily system.
He says that water helps the cardiovascular system, the system of the heart and blood vessels, by thinning out blood for easier flow through the vessels. Blood is five times thicker than water, says Pastor Flemons, so without water the heart would have an extra burden to keep the blood flowing.
Water helps the respiratory system by being that fluid medium for the exchange of carbon dioxide for oxygen (the process of breathing). Also without water, toxins in the form of mucus can build in the lungs.
Water helps the bones and joints that form the skeletal system by decreasing the risk of arthritis, which is partly due to dehydration. It is also due to calcium deposits being caught in the joints en route to helping to alkalinize the blood when it is acidic. Without water the joints become inflamed, blood becomes acidic, and calcium is pulled out of the bones.
The muscular system needs water for muscles to move. Also because the heart is a muscle, it is helped by water, as all muscles must have water for movement and efficient operation.
Water is needed by the endocrine system to maintain proper functioning of the hormones.
Water helps the nervous system to fire at a normal rate of speed and intensity. Without water, the nerves would fire at a higher rate of speed and intensity, as in epileptic attacks. Water calms nerves.
The gastrointestinal system needs water to function properly. Water decreases the risk of constipation.
Water helps the blood be healthy and circulate more fluidly, since a large part of blood is water.
Water helps the immune system by flushing out pathogens through the channels of elimination. Otherwise toxins would stay and create a burden for the immune system.
The reproductive system needs water to keep the cells alive in the organs. Without water, cells (that is “we”) would die in days.
Obviously, the urinary system must have water to excrete waste through urine. Water decreases risk of kidney stones.
The integumentary system is moistened when sufficient water is in the body system. Otherwise, the skin would suffer with dryness and wrinkles.
For all twelve body systems to benefit from water, the body needs a required daily minimum of water equal to the body’s weight divided in half and consumed in ounces. For example, a one hundred pound person would need to drink at least 50 ounces of water daily.
