Worship: Cleansing the Earthly Sanctuary / Wellness: Natural Treatment for Anemia

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake   The “entire plan of redemption” was symbolized in one year’s round of services in the earthly sanctuary. On the day of atonement, in which the sanctuary was cleansed, the high priest dressed in plain white linen garments and first made a sin offering to atone for himself and his house. “This atonement for his own sins and for his house, qualified him to act as a mediator for the people.” As in every service and its parts, directions must be followed in every particular.

After the high priest was qualified to mediate for Israel’s sins, a goat was chosen through casting lots on two goats: one lot for the Lord, the other for the scapegoat. The high priest then killed the Lord’s goat, “the sin offering for the people. . . .and brought the blood into the sanctuary. By this act, as Christ’s representative, he in type took upon himself the sins of repentant Israel.” The blood of the Lord’s goat was taken into the most holy place, where the high priest sprinkled the blood upon the mercy seat seven times to indicate complete reconciliation. The mercy seat was the only covering between the blood and the Law of God that had been transgressed. This same sprinkling was done in the holy place “and ‘on the altar that is before the Lord’ in the court, thus making atonement for ‘all the congregation.’ This was ‘an end of reconciling.’. . . [A]nyone who still had unconfessed sin was cut off from Israel. The destiny of every Israelite had been decided.” PTG

The high priest then transferred the sins of repentant Israel to the scapegoat, by “laying both his hands on the head of the goat,” and confessing “over him all the sins of repentant Israel, thus in figure transferring the sins from himself to the goat. The goat was then sent away ‘into the wilderness;. . .unto a land not inhabited,’ . . .where he finally perished, never to return to the camp of Israel. Thus in type every true Israelite had been cleansed from all sin, and the sanctuary where his sins had been recorded in blood was cleansed. Because the events of this day determined the future of every Israelite, the day of atonement was the most seriously solemn day of their lives. (See GC 420).” PTG

As we are now in the actual day of atonement, God is reviewing the records of repentant believers. He is blotting out sins and forever separating sin from repentant believers. We are living in the most solemn days of Earth’s history.

[For additional details, please read Leviticus 16:4-22; Hebrews 9:7; GC 420; and “Cleansing of the Earthly Sanctuary” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 174, 175 original. PTG 237, 238 new edition. PTG 132, 133 online.) Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons and hear him sing “Will You Be Ready When the King Returns?” and Hymn 507, “Moment by Moment.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, continued the discussion about the most common disease of the blood: anemia. In the previous segment, he had mentioned that anemia essentially occurs because of a deficiency in red blood cells or hemoglobin. Anemia, we also learned is identified in three types: iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia, and sickle cell anemia.

Major causes of anemia include blood loss, a diet deficient in good alkaline foods, including leafy green vegetables, and conditions of the bone marrow, kidneys and liver that negatively affect red blood cell production. Major symptoms include very easily being fatigued, loss of energy, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, dizziness, or pale skin.  In all types of anemia, the cells are not receiving enough oxygen.

In all cases, what needs to happen says Pastor Flemons is a juice fast, where the person feasts on green vegetable drinks: 3 pints or 3 quarts daily. Because diet is so important, animal products must be eliminated from the diet and superfoods must be included. Eating animal products is hard on the liver and kidneys, which have major roles in red blood cell production. Because stress is a factor that hinders red blood cell production, relying on God is essential. It reduces stress.

In all cases, the blood needs to be strengthened. Pastor Flemons provided the recipe for a blood-builder. But he adds caution for those who have sugar restrictions. The recipe includes grape juice, black mission figs, raisins, and apricots. Directions and daily dosage are below.

Words of Encouragement

Isaiah 51:3  For the LORD shall comfort Zion; he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

Isaiah 51:11  Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“The prophecy which seemed most clearly to reveal the time of the second advent was that of Daniel 8:14: ‘Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.’ Following his rule of making Scripture its own interpreter, Miller learned that a day in symbolic prophecy represents a year (Numbers 14:34Ezekiel 4:6); he saw that the period of 2300 prophetic days, or literal years, would extend far beyond the close of the Jewish dispensation, hence it could not refer to the sanctuary of that dispensation. Miller accepted the generally received view that in the Christian age the earth is the sanctuary, and he therefore understood that the cleansing of the sanctuary foretold in Daniel 8:14 represented the purification of the earth by fire at the second coming of Christ. If, then, the correct starting point could be found for the 2300 days, he concluded that the time of the second advent could be readily ascertained. Thus would be revealed the time of that great consummation, the time when the present state, with ‘all its pride and power, pomp and vanity, wickedness and oppression, would come to an end;’ when the curse would be ‘removed from off the earth, death be destroyed, reward be given to the servants of God, the prophets and saints, and them who fear His name, and those be destroyed that destroy the earth.’—Bliss, page 76. GC 324.3

“With a new and deeper earnestness, Miller continued the examination of the prophecies, whole nights as well as days being devoted to the study of what now appeared of such stupendous importance and all-absorbing interest. In the eighth chapter of Daniel he could find no clue to the starting point of the 2300 days; the angel Gabriel, though commanded to make Daniel understand the vision, gave him only a partial explanation. As the terrible persecution to befall the church was unfolded to the prophet’s vision, physical strength gave way. He could endure no more, and the angel left him for a time. Daniel ‘fainted, and was sick certain days.’ ‘And I was astonished at the vision,’ he says, ‘but none understood it.’ GC 325.1

“Yet God had bidden His messenger: ‘Make this man to understand the vision.’ That commission must be fulfilled. In obedience to it, the angel, some time afterward, returned to Daniel, saying: ‘I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding;’ ‘therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.’ Daniel 8:27, 169:22, 23, 25-27. There was one important point in the vision of chapter 8 which had been left unexplained, namely, that relating to time—the period of the 2300 days; therefore the angel, in resuming his explanation, dwells chiefly upon the subject of time: GC 325.2

“’Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy Holy City…. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for Himself…. And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week He shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.’ GC 326.1

“The angel had been sent to Daniel for the express purpose of explaining to him the point which he had failed to understand in the vision of the eighth chapter, the statement relative to time—’unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.’ After bidding Daniel ‘understand the matter, and consider the vision,’ the very first words of the angel are: ‘Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy Holy City.’ The word here translated ‘determined’ literally signifies ‘cut off.’ Seventy weeks, representing 490 years, are declared by the angel to be cut off, as specially pertaining to the Jews. But from what were they cut off? As the 2300 days was the only period of time mentioned in chapter 8, it must be the period from which the seventy weeks were cut off; the seventy weeks must therefore be a part of the 2300 days, and the two periods must begin together. The seventy weeks were declared by the angel to date from the going forth of the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem. If the date of this commandment could be found, then the starting point for the great period of the 2300 days would be ascertained. GC 326.2

“In the seventh chapter of Ezra the decree is found. Verses 12-26. In its completest form it was issued by Artaxerxes, king of Persia, 457 B.C. But in Ezra 6:14 the house of the Lord at Jerusalem is said to have been built ‘according to the commandment [‘decree,’ margin] of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.” These three kings, in originating, reaffirming, and completing the decree, brought it to the perfection required by the prophecy to mark the beginning of the 2300 years. Taking 457 B.C., the time when the decree was completed, as the date of the commandment, every specification of the prophecy concerning the seventy weeks was seen to have been fulfilled. GC 326.3

“’From the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks’—namely, sixty-nine weeks, or 483 years. The decree of Artaxerxes went into effect in the autumn of 457 B.C. From this date, 483 years extend to the autumn of A.D. 27. (See Appendix.) At that time this prophecy was fulfilled. The word ‘Messiah’ signifies ‘the Anointed One.’ In the autumn of A.D. 27 Christ was baptized by John and received the anointing of the Spirit. The apostle Peter testifies that ‘God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power.’ Acts 10:38. And the Saviour Himself declared: ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.’ Luke 4:18. After His baptism He went into Galilee, ‘preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled.’ Mark 1:14, 15.

‘And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week.’ The ‘week’ here brought to view is the last one of the seventy; it is the last seven years of the period allotted especially to the Jews. During this time, extending from A.D. 27 to A.D. 34, Christ, at first in person and afterward by His disciples, extended the gospel invitation especially to the Jews. As the apostles went forth with the good tidings of the kingdom, the Saviour’s direction was: ‘Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.’ Matthew 10:5, 6. GC 327.2

“’In the midst of the week He shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.’ In A.D. 31, three and a half years after His baptism, our Lord was crucified. With the great sacrifice offered upon Calvary, ended that system of offerings which for four thousand years had pointed forward to the Lamb of God. Type had met antitype, and all the sacrifices and oblations of the ceremonial system were there to cease. GC 327.3

“The seventy weeks, or 490 years, especially allotted to the Jews, ended, as we have seen, in A.D. 34. At that time, through the action of the Jewish Sanhedrin, the nation sealed its rejection of the gospel by the martyrdom of Stephen and the persecution of the followers of Christ. Then the message of salvation, no longer restricted to the chosen people, was given to the world. The disciples, forced by persecution to flee from Jerusalem, ‘went everywhere preaching the word.’ ‘Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.’ Peter, divinely guided, opened the gospel to the centurion of Caesarea, the God-fearing Cornelius; and the ardent Paul, won to the faith of Christ, was commissioned to carry the glad tidings ‘far hence unto the Gentiles.’ Acts 8:4, 522:21. GC 328.1

“Thus far every specification of the prophecies is strikingly fulfilled, and the beginning of the seventy weeks is fixed beyond question at 457 B.C., and their expiration in A.D. 34. From this data there is no difficulty in finding the termination of the 2300 days. The seventy weeks—490 days—having been cut off from the 2300, there were 1810 days remaining. After the end of 490 days, the 1810 days were still to be fulfilled. From A.D. 34, 1810 years extend to 1844. Consequently the 2300 days of Daniel 8:14 terminate in 1844. At the expiration of this great prophetic period, upon the testimony of the angel of God, ‘the sanctuary shall be cleansed.’ Thus the time of the cleansing of the sanctuary—which was almost universally believed to take place at the second advent—was definitely pointed out. GC 328.2

“Miller and his associates at first believed that the 2300 days would terminate in the spring of 1844, whereas the prophecy points to the autumn of that year. (See Appendix.) The misapprehension of this point brought disappointment and perplexity to those who had fixed upon the earlier date as the time of the Lord’s coming. But this did not in the least affect the strength of the argument showing that the 2300 days terminated in the year 1844, and that the great event represented by the cleansing of the sanctuary must then take place.” GC 328.3

(This study is based on chapter 18, “An American Reformer” in the book The Great Controversy (GC), by Ellen G. White.)

For Health’s Sake…

  1. People tend to eat more of a range of unhealthy food products and thus expand the waistline. Most of the real impact, however, is “just because of the marketing and advertising during that time.”
  2. Research on people at a greater risk of developing diabetes revealed that for every hour of TV watching each day, the risk of developing diabetes increased 3.4 percent. “Hollywood” puts you under its spell, says Pastor Flemons.
  3. TV may be bad for the bedroom. The article reports a Harvard study found that there’s a 44% fewer sperm count associated with men who watch more than 20 hours of TV per week. “Increased activity, by comparison, was associated with higher sperm counts. Previous research also associates prolonged TV viewing with increased risk of heart disease, which, for men, is also associated with higher rates of impotence.”
  4. TV relationships could damage real relationships. Popular portrayals of romance, for the believer, bleed into real relationships, causing unrealistic expectations. Bottom line, says Pastor Flemons, stop watching emotional TV programming and basing your real life on it.
  5. TV exposure before age 2 is “strongly correlated with decreased language development.”
  6. “Research shows that early exposure to TV violence also makes it likelier that kids will grow up to be aggressive adults.”
  7. TV “binge-watching shouldn’t be viewed as a harmless addiction.” It’s isolating and promotes “antisocial behavior.”
  8. TV watching often cuts into sleep time; it makes it harder to unwind.
  9. TV could shorten the lifespan. Research showed those who watched at least 3 hours per day had twice the risk of dying during the 8-year follow-up period than those “who said they didn’t watch more than 1 hour per day.”

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  When all the previous points of a prophetic timeline proves to be true, it only makes sense to trust the rest of the prophecy to also be true. The fact that God included a last day event in the same prophetic timeline in which He used Daniel to accurately prophesy the baptism and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ means that He did not want anyone to miss the point.

For Heaven’s Sake…

Daniel 8:14  And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

The point is this. At the end of this 2300-day prophecy, the sanctuary would be cleansed. Leviticus 16 explain what this means. It provides the symbolic details of this cleansing ceremony on the Day of Atonement. Like all the other landmark events in the 2300-day prophecy, the closing date of this prophecy points to a specific real event in which Jesus would literally cleanse the sanctuary or temple on the actual Day of Atonement in this world’s history. This naturally affects every human being that has ever lived on the face of the earth.

Daniel 8:19  And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.

Using a chart, Pastor Flemons showed the prophetic timeline, which began in 457 BC and ended in 1844. It provides dates, events and biblical references. Prior to 1844, the immediate past events on the timeline were the close of probation for the Jewish nation and the 1260-year reign of the Roman Catholic Church, historically known in Protestantism as the Dark Ages of 538-1798. It was then that the Bible was forbidden to be read by anyone other than the priests. (Read “An Era of Spiritual Darkness” about the Dark Ages in chapter 3 of The Great Controversy, accessible at this link: http://www.whiteestate.org/books/gc/gc3.html.)

Probation for the Jewish nation closed when their stubborn rejection of Christ as the Messiah led them to stone Stephen in 34 AD, per Acts 7. At that time the gospel went out to the Gentiles in full measure. Instead of the Jewish nation, Christian believers then became the object of God’s favor.

According to the prophetic timeline, since 1844, the world has been in the antitypical Day of Atonement. The sanctuary is being cleansed. According to 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, we are the temple of God. The investigative judgment is now in process. It is a period in which Jesus is reviewing the life of every professed believer from the beginning of time and judging whether they can be forever pardoned for sin and their names can remain in the Lamb’s book of life. If so, they will make up that number that Jesus will be coming for to escort back to the courts of heaven. Like in Leviticus 16, every living being should now be afflicting his or her own soul: confessing and having godly sorrow for sin now that all of our sins may be forgiven by our High Priest Jesus that those who are judged righteous may be righteous still at the soon coming of Jesus, according to Revelation 22:11-12. All the wicked at that time will have no more opportunity to be saved from their sins. They will be forever cut off.

Now is the time, pleads Pastor Flemons, for us to cry out to God as did David.

Psalm 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

 

For Health’s Sake…

Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness and naturopathy, reviewed the CNN article “Anti-inflammatory drugs might someday treat depression.” For years, Times of Refreshing missionaries have known that inflammation causes some of our depression. They have been targeting inflammation as one of the culprits in nearly every disease you can have.

Every time we see -itis in a term of disease, inflammation is present, says Pastor Flemons. Arthritis is only one example: the Latin word itself means that there is inflammation in the joint. Inflammation is what causes the pain and is connected with the deterioration of the cartilage.

Even hypertension is often the result of inflammation. A toxic bloodstream produces free radicals, which damage the cell and the arterial wall. The body then responds by using cholesterol and other things as a soothing bandage to cool down and strengthen the artery. As toxins are continually introduced into the system through poor dietary habits and lifestyle, the damage and the body’s responses continue. Eventually, the buildup clogs the artery, which can actually take your life.

Thermography proves that inflammation is present in cancer patients. Inflammation creates heat, because the body is in a fight for its life. The cancer cells are active, and the immune system is responding. The area of the tumor is hot to the touch, because of the inflammation there.

The disease called depression results because of toxins that settle in the brain. Those toxins cause a rise in cytokines. Cytokines are secreted by certain cells of the immune system and delivered to sites where inflammation is present.

Inflammation comes as a result of eating an acid diet. When we get rid of inflammation, says Pastor Flemons, we get rid of the disease. We must change the inner environment to improve our health. We simply must eat an alkaline diet to improve and maintain healthy bodies.
