Join us for a full day of inspired presentations to enlighten you and draw you into a deeper understanding of God's Word and His design for your wellness.
Gemstones of the Breastplate presented by Dr. Christi-Bonds-Garrett
Dr. Christi Bonds-Garrett will share an informative and entertaining look at the history of the Breastplate and the gemstones it contained. We will review the 12 Tribes of Israel, how their lives and stories relate to the 12 Stones of the Breastplate as well as to essential oils! Besides presenting the history of the 12 Tribes of Israel and their Gemstones on the Breastplate of the High Priest, there will be associations of each Tribe with essential oils - and how/where to use them in anointing.
What are the 12 Gemstones of the Breastplate? Named in the 28th Chapter of the Book of Exodus, there is still much discussion about exactly which stones these were. What were their uses? Who was authorized to wear this sacred Breastplate? Can we learn from the wisdom of the past and apply it today?
The Oils of Ancient Scripture presented by David Stewart, PhD*
Dr. David Stewart, author of Healing Oils of the Bible, will lead us through an entire program of the Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture. We will explore the important role essential oils played in the lives of Biblical people and the power of essential oils. Mentioned more than 500 times in the Holy Bible, essential oils were used to support wellness, cleansing, and holy anointing. Oils like Aloes, Cassia, Frankincense, Galbanum, Hyssop, Balm, Spikenard, Cedarwood, Myrrh, and many more. Bring your Bibles and come learn, enjoy, share and experience these holy oils. "And they went out...and they anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them." Mark 6:12-13
*Dr. David Stewart underwent open-heart surgery on January 29, 2017. He is recovering remarkably well. We are praying the Lord strengthens David more every day as we grow closer to the event and adjust our plans accordingly. The Oils of Ancient Scripture will go on as planned, however, the actual presenter will be determined at a later date. Please keep David and his family in your prayers.
