Worship: A Call to Medical Evangelism, Pt 3 / Wellness: 3 Things You Never Knew About Medication


Worship: For Heaven’s Sake
The call that Jesus gave to his disciples in Luke 9:1, extends to all believers down to the end of time. It says, “Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.” This is God’s chosen method of saving souls. According to the passages Pastor Flemons read, every believer is to be a medical missionary.

“It is important that instructions should be given by ministers in regard to living temperately. They should show the relation which eating, working, resting, and dressing sustain to health. {CME 10.3}

“All who believe the truth for these last days have something to do in this matter. It concerns them, and God requires them to arouse and interest themselves in this reform. He will not be pleased with their course if they regard this question with indifference.—Testimonies for the Church 1:618. {CME 10.4}

“We have come to a time when every member of the church should take hold of medical missionary work. The world is a lazar house filled with victims of both physical and spiritual disease. Everywhere people are perishing for lack of a knowledge of the truths that have been committed to us. The members of the church are in need of an awakening, that they may realize their responsibility to impart these truths.—Testimonies for the Church 7:62. {CME 10.5}

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that three things you never knew about drugs are 1. that drugs never cure disease; 2. that drugs only change the form of a disease; and 3. that drugs only change the location of the disease. He then shared this statement:

“Drugs never cure disease. They only change the form and location. Nature alone is the effectual restorer, and how much better could she perform her task if left to herself. But this privilege is seldom allowed her. If crippled nature bears up under the load, and finally accomplishes in a great measure her double task, and the patient lives, the credit is given to the physician. But if nature fails in her effort to expel the poison from the system, and the patient dies, it is called a wonderful dispensation of Providence. If the patient had taken a course to relieve overburdened nature in season, and understandingly used pure soft water, this dispensation of drug-mortality might have been wholly averted. The use of water can accomplish but little, if the patient does not feel the necessity of also strictly attending to his diet.” {2SM 451.1}

Sharing and Caring Time Sis. Maria shared several passages from the book The Power of Prayer, a collection of Ellen G. White writings on prayer, Chapter 15, page 36 and 37. She shared these passages:

“Those who seek God in secret telling the Lord their needs and pleading for help, will not plead in vain. “Thy Father which seeth in secret Himself shall reward thee openly.” As we make Christ our daily companion we shall feel that the powers of an unseen world are all around us; and by looking unto Jesus we shall become assimilated to His image. By beholding we become changed. The character is softened, refined, and ennobled for the heavenly kingdom. The sure result of our intercourse and fellowship with our Lord will be to increase piety, purity, and fervor. There will be a growing intelligence in prayer. We are receiving a divine education, and this is illustrated in a life of diligence and zeal. {Pr 183.2}

“The soul that turns to God for its help, its support, its power, by daily, earnest prayer, will have noble aspirations, clear perceptions of truth and duty, lofty purposes of action, and a continual hungering and thirsting after righteousness. By maintaining a connection with God, we shall be enabled to diffuse to others, through our association with them, the light, the peace, the serenity, that rule in our hearts. The strength acquired in prayer to God, united with persevering effort in training the mind in thoughtfulness and care-taking, prepares one for daily duties and keeps the spirit in peace under all circumstances.”—(Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, 84, 85.) {Pr 183.3}
