“CHRIST OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS LEADS US TO SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH”
Everything we do at our home-based seminars is focused on the central theme of the most precious message given to us in 1888 of “Christ and His Righteousness” Ellen White puts it this way (TM pp. 91-92):
“The Lord in his great mercy sent a most precious message to his people through Elders Waggoner and Jones. This message was to bring more prominently before the world the uplifted Saviour, the sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. It presented justification through faith in the Surety; it invited the people to receive the righteousness of Christ, which is made manifest in obedience to all the commandments of God… All power is given into his hands, that he may dispense rich gifts unto men, imparting the priceless gift of his own righteousness to the helpless human agent. This is the message that God commanded to be given to the world.”
“All who consecrate soul, body, and spirit to God will be constantly receiving a new endowment of physical and mental power. The inexhaustible supplies of heaven are at their command. Christ gives them the breath of His own spirit, the life of His own life. The Holy Spirit puts forth its highest energies to work in heart and mind.” (DA pg.827)
God is truly a Seeking Saviour and He wants nothing but the best for us in mind, body, and spirit. It is when we realize that the message of the Cross is everything to us and when we abide in Christ, His power is there for us. Then all that we do is done in light of the Cross to honor Him. Then the health message that God has given us becomes a blessing and a fruit of the Gospel and not a list of rules to be worked at.
This is the focus and theme through all of our classes at our home-based seminars which cover a 7-day period. Topics will include the following areas:
-Anatomy and Physiology—Understanding our Bodies and How God Made Them -Vegan Cooking Classes -Hydrotherapy classes -Menu Planning and a Balanced Diet -Sprouting Classes -Nature Boat Ride on Ocoee Lake -Nutrition -Exercise -Water -Fresh Air
All of these classes will be intermingled with spiritual talks focusing on the Cross. For as Paul said: “I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” 1 Cor. 2:2
Our traveling seminars are generally adaptations of the above topics depending on the expressed interests and needs of the church or lifestyle center we are going to and the length of time available to us there. The minimum would be a long weekend but more typically at least a 1 week to 2-week period of time.
