YOU DO NOT HAVE TO

“WILT

WHOLE?” 

Christ always separates the contrite soul from sin.
He came to destroy the works of the devil, and He
has made provision that the Holy Spirit shall be
imparted to every repentant soul, to keep him
from sinning.” [2]

In a society where the food we eat, the air we
breathe, the clothes we wear, the location where
we live have been compromised it is no wonder
why there are many suffering from disease.  But
this does not have to be the end all story.  We can
cooperate with the Lord by seeking the right
location away from the city where the air is fresh
and free from a concentration of pollutants.  We
can choose to eat the original diet proscribed by
the Lord to avoid things such as cancer.  We can
wear clothing that will cover the person promoting
a healthy circulation of the blood.  All these are
some of the choices we can make to be healthy.

We are in control of our health and we have to
learn to make good choices. As we turn to the Lord
we ask for temperance in all things for He wills us
to be well.  We must do all physically possible and
the Lord takes care of the rest. As we cooperate
with Him we can choose to be healthy and whole
without sickness and without sin.  Will you choose
to be healthy physically and spiritually today?

THE CLIMATE
CHANGE CRY &
THE FINAL
CRISIS

In the beginning because of disobedience to
God’s command the earth was cursed and
brought forth thorns and thistles this made the
cultivation of vegetation a challenge.  Farmers
and gardeners alike are faced today with pests
and disease that hinder the production of food.
 Those that choose to raise livestock also have
another inhibition. “According to the United
Nations, ‘livestock are one of the most
significant contributors to today’s most serious
environmental problems” (2)

At first glance meat eating might not seem
related to climate change but its advocates do
see its relevance.  In fact according to an article
“Research and scientific consensus is clear:
raising animals for food is a leading cause of
pollution and resource depletion… Another
study published in Environmental Research
Letters warns that to avoid the worst
consequences of future climate change, meat-
eaters should cut their consumption by 50%.”
 Politicians and Religious Figures alike advocate
that climate change should be combated by
sustainable means or growing foods instead of
raising livestock.” (2)

Supporters of Climate Change propaganda range
from Al Gore to Pope Francis big names in
politics and religion.  “Pope Francis’ Encyclical
“On Care for Our Common Home” recognizes the
increasing damage being done to the planet and
biodiversity by climate change.” He stated that
there is a “sickness evident in the soil, in the
water, in the air and in all forms of life.”(1) The
bible teaches that because of sin we will reap
the wages which is death to man, beast and the
earth also is affected.

 The health benefits of not eating

the welfare of the planet.  The
emphasis of a health reform
should be implemented in
accordance with the spiritual
benefits.

TO TAKE HIS LOVED ONES HOME,

WOULD RAPTURE FILL ME, OR
DISMAY,

NEATH HEAVEN'S BLAZING
DOME?

COULD I LIFT HOLY HANDS ON
HIGH

AND FACE THE JUDGMENT

OR WOULD HE SENTENCE ME TO
DIE,

WHO WIELDS THE IRON ROD? 
SOME DAY ERELONG THE TRUMP WILL

SOUND;
THE JUDGE WILL SWIFT DESCEND,
WITH HEAVEN'S GLORY SHINING

ROUND,
AND EARTHLY THINGS WILL END.
THEN WITH OUR FACES ASHEN WHITE
WE'LL HEAR EACH OTHER SAY, "OUR
GARMENTS MUST BE CLEAN AND WHITE,

FOR JESUS COMES TODAY?"
