Worship: For Heaven’s Sake Pastor Flemons shared with us how God must feel about colorful cosmetics, jewelry, and flashy clothes. Using passages of Scripture in Revelation, he says we can get clues. As we learned already, the Bible has coded language that will refer to the church as Zion and a woman. (See Jeremiah 6:2; Revelation 12:17; Zechariah 8:3; Amos 1:2; and Joel 2:23.)
In Revelation 12:1-9, we see that a woman is clothed, not in colorful cosmetics, jewelry and flashy clothes. This woman was “clothed with the sun, and moon under her feet” and a crown of twelve stars. The sun, the moon, and the stars are all reflectors of God’s light. True believers of God also are reflectors of God’s light, which is His character.
Another woman, a very different woman, is described in Revelation 17:1-6. This woman is called a whore. She is described as being “arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.” The description in the passage ends with her being “drunken with the blood of the saints.”
Revelation 19:1-8, is a passage that tells of the judgment of the great whore. It ends, however, with a description of those who truly give praise that is acceptable to God. “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”

Worship: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, provided four tips for getting sufficient sunlight daily.
1. Expose your hands and face to sunlight for at least 15 to 30 minutes a day.
2. Do not get sunlight during the hottest parts of the day, if possible.
3. Do not eat a high fat diet. The combination of a high fat diet and sunlight exposure causes skin cancer.
4. Allow sunshine to enter your home by opening the drapes and blinds.

Words of Encouragement
Acts 2:43-45 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. And all that believed were together, and had all things common; and sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. (Also read Ye Shall Receive Power, YRP 338.)
Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. (Also read My Life Today, ML 85.)
