In health and in sickness, pure water is one of heaven’s choicest blessings. Its proper use promotes health. It is the beverage which God provided to quench the thirst of animals and man. Drunk freely, it helps to supply the necessities of the system and assists nature to resist disease. The external application of water is one of the easiest and most satisfactory ways of regulating the circulation of the blood.

In Christ, God has provided means for subduing every evil
trait and resisting every temptation, however strong. But many feel that they lack faith, and therefore they remain away from Christ. Let these souls, in their helpless unworthiness, cast themselves upon the mercy of their compassionate Saviour. Look not to self, but to Christ. He who healed the sick and cast out demons when He walked among men is still the same mighty Redeemer. Then grasp His promises as leaves from the tree of life: “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.” John 6:37. As you come to Him, believe that He accepts you, because He has promised. You can never perish while you do this—never.

In my 30+ years of experience in natural remedies and health, I’ve encountered a lot of different modalities for therapy. Few excite me as much as essential oils do. Throughout the Bible there are references to “balms”, “ointments”, and “anointing oils”. Granted, these were more infusions than anything else, but the fact of the matter is that the properties in plants have long been used in healing. It’s just that today there is technology that permits us to concentrate these properties exponentially in the form of these essential oils.
Some argue that essential oils are too expensive. Granted, the more pure ones are more costly but consider the story of Mary Magdelene anointing the feet of Jesus before His death. The oils she used were considered precious, and it cost her a year’s wages to perform that “lavish” act! We certainly don’t have to spend a year’s wages to enjoy the benefits of essential oils. But that act of devotion anointed the heart of Jesus more than just His feet.
As a Lifestyle Educator, Lifestyle Counselor, Medical Missionary and RN, I fully endorse and embrace the use of essential oils in the recovery and maintenance of health. As I counsel with people now, I am beginning more and more to recommend the use of essential oils for everything from insomnia to gut healing. And I believe this is every bit as connected to spiritual health as was Jesus’ teaching and healing.

Here is part two of Adan Mill’s excellent presentation on music and the Great Controversy. In this presentation, Br. Mills reveals the effect of music on the human body.
“Though your efforts for good have been unsuccessful ninety-nine times, and you received only insult, reproach, and hate, yet if the one-hundredth time proves a success, and one soul is saved, oh, what a victory is achieved! One soul wrenched from Satan’s grasp, one soul benefited, one soul encouraged. This will a thousand times repay you for all your efforts."

What if that one lost soul were your child? your spouse? or you? How earnest would you wish the pursuer to be?
"If we would let our hearts be impressed with the following important words, and ever bear them in mind, we should not so easily fall into temptation and our words would be few and well chosen: ‘He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.’ ‘Every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.’ ‘Thou God seest me.’"
Early Writings, page 112
The graveclothes were not thrown heedlessly aside, but carefully folded, each in a place by itself itself…It was Christ Himself who had placed those graveclothes with such care. When the mighty angel came down to the tomb, he was joined by another, who with his company had been keeping guard over the Lord’s body. As the angel from heaven rolled away the stone, the other entered the tomb, and unbound the wrappings from the body of Jesus. But it was the Saviour’s hand that folded each, and laid it in its place. In His sight who guides alike the star and the atom, there is nothing unimportant. Order and perfection are seen in all His work.
