The giving of the gospel to the world is the work that God has committed to those who bear His name. For earth’s sin and misery the gospel is the only antidote. To make known to all mankind the message of the grace of God is the first work of those who know its healing power. {MH 141.2}

None understands the situation of the World today unless it is revealed for them from the Word of God.

There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. If men would give more heed to the teaching of God’s word, they would find a solution of the problems that perplex them.  {9T 13.3}

We should run to the word of God to understand the only solution to world’s problems.

The gospel is a wonderful simplifier of life’s problems. Its instruction, heeded, would make plain many a perplexity and save us from many an error. It   teaches us to estimate things at their true value and to give the most effort to the things of greatest worth–the things that will endure. {MH 363.1}

Everywhere there are hearts crying out for something which they have not. They long for a power that will give them mastery over sin, a power that will deliver them from the bondage of evil, a power that will give health and life and peace. Many who once knew the power of God’s word have dwelt where there is no recognition of God, and they long for the divine presence.  {MH 143.1}

THE STATUS OF THE WORLD

What the the world needs today is the demonstration of the Love of Christ in the soul. Christ demonstrated this life when He was walking here on earth.

The world needs today what it needed nineteen hundred years ago–a revelation of Christ. A great work of reform is demanded, and it is only through the grace of Christ that the work of restoration, physical, mental, and spiritual, can be accomplished.  {MH 143.2}

Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The (1)Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. (2)He showed His sympathy for them, (3)ministered to their needs, and (4)won their confidence. Then He bade them, “Follow Me.”  {MH 143.3}

For us to demonstrate the life of Christ to the world, we need to come to the understanding of the plan of salvation and how we can practically demonstrate it to the world.

“We need to be enlightened in regard to the plan of salvation. There is not one in one hundred who understands for himself the Bible truth on this subject that is so necessary to our present and eternal welfare.Review and Herald 9-3-1889

God’s purpose in giving the third angel’s message to the world is to prepare a people to stand true to Him during the investigative judgment. This is the purpose for which we establish and maintain our publishing houses, our schools, our sanitariums, hygienic restaurants, treatment rooms, and food factories. This is our purpose in carrying forward every line of work in the cause. Ms 154, 1902, p. 4.

so we find that in order to carry out the True Medical missionary work to the world. We need to have institutions that are working in line to the plan of God in Restoring the image of God in Man. We need Sanitariums, hygienic restaurant, treatment rooms, and food factories. These agencies will help us in developing a character to fit for eternity and also prepare us to receive the Mark of the Beast.

The Lord has shown me clearly that the image  of the beast will be formed before probation closes; for it is to be the test for the people of God, by which their eternal destiny  will be decidedThis is the test that the people of God must have before they are sealed . All who prove their loyalty to God by observing His law, and refusing to accept a spurious Sabbath, will rank under the banner of the Lord God Jehovah and will receive the seal of the living God. Those who yield the truth of heavenly origin and accept the Sunday Sabbath, will receive the mark of the beast. (BC 7A -976)

What is the work of our Sanitariums in this last days?

Our sanitariums have been established for the purpose of preparing a people for the second coming of our Lord and Saviour.  {MR-229}

“If rightly conducted, our sanitariums may exert a refining, ennobling influence, and lead many souls to Christ. The religious principles maintained in these institutions will demonstrate that there is relief for the soul, weary and sick with sin. Many are weak and sick because of disease of the soul. Let Christ be held up before them as the great Healer, Who invites them to come to Him and find rest. Tell them that the heart of Christ is drawn out in compassion and love for His blood-bought heritage. He will heal the troubled heart that looks to Him in faith.”  {PH094 17.3}.

What does the enemy of Souls striving to accomplish in this last days?

“The enemy of man and God is not willing that this truth should be clearly presented; for he knows that if the people receive it fully, his power will be broken.”

Review and Herald 9-3-1889

The enemy of Souls will keep us asleep so that the people of the Lord can not understand this plan of finishing the work. He want us to go round and round like the children of Israel. Wondering in the wilderness.

And the LORD spake unto me, saying, Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward. Deuteronomy 2:2,3. It is true that we have wondered in this world of sin for so long. We need to wake from Sleep and work. Which is one of the most Important work for us to engage in? Medical Missionary Work.

We have come to a time when every member of the church should take hold of medical missionary work. The world is a lazar house filled with the victims of both physical and spiritual disease. Everywhere people are perishing for lack of a knowledge of the truths that have been committed to us. The members of the church are in need of an awakening, that they may realize their responsibility to impart these truths. Those who have been enlightened by the truth are to be light bearers to the world. To hide our light at this time is to make a terrible mistake. The message to God’s people today is, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” {RH, July 29, 1902 par. 2}

This is the Practical Work we should engage in to demonstrate practical godliness to the world, thus there will be a telling influence to the world. This is the work spoken about in Isaiah 58. Study it Brothers and Sisters.

Practical work will have far more effect than mere sermonizing. We are to give food to the hungry, clothing to the naked, and shelter to the homeless. And we are called to do more than this. The wants of the soul, only the love of Christ can satisfy. If Christ is abiding in us, our hearts will be full of divine sympathy. The sealed fountains of earnest, Christlike love will be unsealed.  {RC 233.3}

How can we achieve this practical work.We can accomplish this by educating people on health principles.

As we near the close of time, we must rise higher and still higher upon the question of health reform and Christian temperance, presenting it in a more positive and decided manner. We must strive continually to educate the people, not only by our words, but by our practice. Precept and practice combined have a telling influence.  {CD 443.2}

This is so much important, friends. We need people who will take hold of the art of cookery with seriousness, Teachers who will teach people on the importance of Christian Temperance.

Education in health principles was never more needed than now. Notwithstanding the wonderful progress in so many lines relating to the comforts and conveniences of life, even to sanitary matters and to the treatment of disease, the decline in physical vigor and power of endurance is alarming. It demands the attention of all who have at heart the well-being of their fellow men.  {CD 441.1}

What is the need of Health reform and educating people on Christian Temperance?

Perfection

Our first duty toward God and our fellow beings is that of self-development. Every faculty with which the Creator has endowed us should be cultivated to the highest degree of perfection, that we may be able to do the greatest amount of good of which we are capable. Hence that time is spent to good account which is used in the establishment and preservation of physical and mental health. We cannot afford to dwarf or cripple any function of body or mind. As surely as we do this, we must suffer the consequences.  {CD 15.2}

perfection of Christian character is the most important thing in the Christian life. This is what is being waited by Christ for His Church to demonstrate. The word of God says, that even the creatures are waiting and longing for deliverance from the destruction done by man unto them.

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Romans 8:22. Every day a lot of animals are dying in the hands of Man. Men use them for food. As a result, men die from many diseases because God Himself said that , “And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it,” Genesis 9:5. Now many have failed to understand this statement. The moment we kill an animal for food, and it it with blood and fat, we sign our Death certificate. Hope you get that.

God desires us to reach the standard of perfection made possible for us by the gift of Christ. He calls upon us to make our choice on the right side, to connect with heavenly agencies, to adopt principles that will restore in us the divine image. In His written word and in the great book of nature He has revealed the principles of life. It is our work to obtain a knowledge of these principles, and by obedience to cooperate with Him in restoring health to the body as well as to the soul.  {CD 16.1}

Regaining Sinless State is where we are headed to. Are you making preparations towards it?

Let our people discard all unwholesome recipes. Let them learn how to live healthfully, teaching to others what they have learned. Let them impart this knowledge as they would Bible instruction. Let them teach the people to preserve the health and increase the strength by avoiding the large amount of cooking that has filled the world with chronic invalids. By precept and example make it plain that the food which God gave Adam in his sinless state is the best for man’s use as he seeks to regain that sinless state. {CD 460.5}

We must educate people on how to regain this state by Teaching them what to do, Tell them that “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” 1 Corinthians 10:31.

Knowledge must be gained in regard to how to eat, and drink, and dress so as to preserve health. Sickness is caused by violating the laws of health; it is the result of violating nature’s law. Our first duty, one which we owe to God, to ourselves, and to our fellow men, is to obey the laws of God, which include the laws of health. {CD 21.2}

The next important thing that we need to consider and understand when we are practicing the Health reform, is that, it leads us to the point of translation.

In order to be fitted for translation, the people of God must know themselves. They must understand in regard to their own physical frames, that they may be able with the psalmist to exclaim, “I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” They should ever have the appetite in subjection to the moral and intellectual organs. The body should be servant to the mind, and not the mind to the body.  {CD 33.1}

Among those who are waiting for the coming of the Lord, meat eating will eventually be done away; flesh will  cease to form a part of their diet. We should ever keep this end in view, and endeavor to work steadily toward it. I cannot think that in the practice of flesh eating we are in harmony with the light which God has been pleased to give us. All who are connected with our health institutions especially should be educating themselves to subsist on fruits, grains, and vegetables. If we move from principle in these things, if we as Christian reformers educate our own taste, and bring our diet to God’s plan, then we may exert an influence upon others in this matter, which will be pleasing to God.  {CD 380.4}

Those who teach the principles of health reform should be intelligent in regard to disease and its causes, understanding that every action of the human agent should be in perfect harmony with the laws of life. The light God has given on health reform is for our salvation and the salvation of the world. Men and women should be informed in regard to the human habitation, fitted up by our Creator as His dwelling place and over which He desires us to be faithful stewards. “For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” 2 Corinthians 6:16.  {CD 461.1}

Another important thing why we need to educate people on health principles is that, God is trying to save us from the lifestyle diseases that affecs the world today.

The Lord has presented before me that many, many will be rescued from physical, mental, and moral degeneracy through the practical influence of health reform. Health talks will be given, publications will be multiplied. The principles of health reform will be received with favor; and many will be enlightened. {CD 442.1}

God is really in the business of saving us from destruction. The sad thing is that we as men, we fail to here him speak to us “this is the way walk ye in it”. the more nearly we come to the original plan of God of Health. We will enjoy peace, life and Health. He has placed life before us, but, most of the time we choose death. I adjure us by the mercies of God to choose Life. Blessings.
