Worship: The 7 Branches / Wellness: Med Errors, 3rd Leading Cause of Death

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The 7-branch candlestick in the holy place of the sanctuary shows the relationship between Christ and Christians. Just as Christ is the Light of the world, so are Christians that bear the Light to the world. They are as a city that is set on a hill. The candlestick, in its entirety, represents Christ, but especially does its main shaft, to which each branch is connected for its own light supply.

As the number 7 signifies completion and perfection, Christians are complete and perfect only in Christ. Only because Christ is the light, can we be the light. It is not the other way around–meaning that it is wrong to say, “Because we are the church, Christ remains in our midst.” In fact, “it is only as Christ remains in the middle of us are we His church,” says Pastor Flemons. Christians have no light of their own.

(PTG 138 original; PTG 190 new edition; PTG 105 online) Also please listen to the recording and hear Pastor Flemons sing Hymn 348, “The Church Has One Foundation.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that he believes most deaths are needless early deaths due to systemic medical practices and errors. A cnbc.com article he introduced reports that there are serious discrepancies in numbering the cause of all deaths, because of the way CDC (Centers for Disease Control) collects its statistics. Still “medical errors” are reportedly “the third-leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.”

The cnbc.com article reports that “a recent John Hopkins study claims more than 250,000 people in the U.S. die every year from medical errors. Other reports claim the numbers to be as high as 440,000.”

“The reason for the discrepancy is that physicians, funeral directors, coroners and medical examiners rarely note on death certificates the human errors and system failures involved. Yet death certificates are what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rely on to post statistics for deaths nationwide.”

Though currently unsuccessful, efforts are being made to push for changes in the way death statistics are collected by CDC and to improve safeguards for patients and training for medical personnel.

Sharing Time  Pastor Flemons held a brief discussion over the change of lyrics in hymns that tend to deflect Protestant beliefs and biblical truths in favor of Catholic doctrine. Also two listeners gave their testimonies. One is celebrating her 48th birthday today and the other is celebrating answers to the prayers of yesterday.

Special Prayer  Please include in your prayers today call-in listeners 1808 and 6964. Listener 1808 asked that we pray God to strengthen her family, children, grandchild, and husband as well as his ministry. Also pray for listener 6964, who chose to ask nothing in particular.

Pray also for those undergoing surgery today and all grieving families (especially spouses). Pray for those fighting for their lives and against depression. Also pray for people living in areas of extreme heat and in those areas at risk of being destroyed by hurricanes and tornadoes and other natural disasters.

Remember to continue praying for the entire TOR broadcast family, that GOD will be free to bless us in the way that HE really wants to in 2018. Thank you!

Matthew 25:35, 40 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: . . . And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Also read Faith and Works, FW 44.1-44.3.)

Mark 13:22  For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. (Also read FW 44.4-45.1.)

Worship: False Christs, False Prophets / Wellness: Vital Force

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  In Christ’s days on Earth, miracles authenticated divinity. Although Jesus sometimes used natural remedies to bring healing, He mostly healed instantaneously. He was known for the miracles He performed. Satan was prohibited from performing miracles then, but not now. Jesus said so. In Matthew 24:24, Jesus said to expect false Christs and false prophets who would work wonders that would be so deceptive that, were it possible, even the very elect would be deceived.

Although divine healing can still be instantaneous, usually the miracle of healing today is through character-building natural remedies, diet, and lifestyle. The only safety today is not in believing in miracles, but believing in the Word. There is no safety in emotionalism, especially during worship. The work of spiritualism influences the emotions to control the mind and prepares people to accept miraculous deception. The Word alone is our sure foundation.

[For additional details, please read John 3:1,2; 9:16; 10:19-21; CH 533; and listen to the recording in which Pastor Flemons sang Hymn 348, “The Church Has One Foundation.” ]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, discussed the vital force of the human body. The body’s nervous system houses the body’s vital force. It is the body’s power source. God has measured and given each person a certain amount of vital force. When through healthful diet and practices vital force is preserved, there is health. Otherwise, when it is too rapidly exhausted and abused, there is premature aging, sickness, and death before one’s time. Chronic disease is evidence that vital force is weak. Our duty, says Pastor Flemons, is to preserve the vital force with which we have been entrusted. That is what biblical wellness is all about. TOR calls it the REFRESHING Way lifestyle.

Romans 7:12  Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, and just, and good. (Also read GC 467.) 

Psalm 19:7  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. (Also read DA 308.4-309.3.)

Worship: Foundation Sockets / Wellness: Health Reform Is Progressive

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The sanctuary’s foundation sockets represent none other than Jesus Christ, who is our sure foundation. The Bible assures us in 1 Corinthians 3:11, that there is no other foundation that has been laid than that which has already been laid. Jesus Christ is that foundation. For “thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation” (Isaiah 28:16). Peter     puts it this way: “Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded” (1 Peter 2:6). The Apostle Paul adds that Jesus Christ Himself is the chief corner stone. (See Ephesians 2:20.) “The very habitation of God rests on the redemption effected for each soul by the stoning blood of Christ.” (PTG)

[For additional details, please read Psalm 11:3; Isaiah 51:16; 2 Timothy 2:19; and Hebrews 6:1. Also read “The Foundation Sockets as Symbols” in The Path to the Throne of God: The Sanctuary, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck, PTG 111 original; PTG 156 new edition; PTG 82, 83 online. Also listen to the recording and hear Pastor Flemons sing Hymn 348 “The Church Has One Foundation.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that health reform is a gradual growth process, except for when your life is at stake. Then you will be motivated to get on the fast track of an immediate total plant-based diet, even raw or only juicing for a period, as necessary. (For further details, please listen to the recording.)
