A couple weeks ago, I quoted a statement that I’ve heard on numerous occasions during the past weeks. One of the oft-used phrases I’ve heard from both a dentist and a medical doctor in the past few weeks is, “Your health begins in your mouth.”
When I wrapped up last week, I told you that I had a story to share with you. This story relates directly to the experience I had at the age of seven when Jesus appeared at my bedside and began to lay out His plan and purpose for my life.
Many of you know that I had to visit the dentist to have seven teeth extracted. A few weeks ago, my normal dentist removed two teeth, but discovered that the infection under the teeth was so severe that she had to spend a couple hours with major removal of cysts that were growing into the bone.
We wrapped up last week with my comments concerning the medical profession. Guess I need to clarify a bit. Two of our daughters work in health care. Our oldest son was born under the care of one of my cousins, who was a medical doctor.
Let’s retrace some of what we ended with last week and continue on. We ended last week with the following statements. The Father and Son merge with one another. You see one — you see the other. The Holy Spirit is the energizing power — the same power that upholds everything in the universe — of God the Father and God the Son.
For those of you who’ve been with me from the beginning, you know that throughout the past 14-plus years of publishing this column, we’ve talked about the meaning and significance of the Greek word, onoma, on numerous occasions. This is an important piece of understanding.
It has always been a marvel to me how the Table of the Lord – that which we commonly refer to as the Communion Table – is treated as an “ordinance” – a ritual, if you will; something we just have to do because Jesus commanded it. Many Christians just don’t get it!
eginning in 2008 and into 2009 Holy Spirit instructed me to begin sharing Sunday after Sunday after Sunday after Sunday on the Table of the Lord. Just when I thought we'd about gotten the full revelation of what takes place, the Holy Spirit would download a whole new picture.
