Sister Afton had asked about burials and cremations; what was the church stand on that, and we refer her to the burial of Christ. Jesus spoke of it, The Apostle Paul spoke of it, so the teachings of the Church is the same, we bury, and not cremate.
We spoke a bit about the Prophet of God, which was our sermon from that past Sunday. How important a Prophet is to the existence of the people of God. God brought the Children of Israel up out of the land of Egypt and He preserved them by a Prophet. The same is true today, because He only speaks to His servants the prophets as is stated in Amos 3:7.
We also looked at how a prophet is established to be a prophet of God, by his words not losing power, but is fulfilled, when spoken. As you read St. John 2:5, how the mother of Jesus told the servants that were there to do whatsoever He saith unto you. He told them to fill the pots with water, they did, and afterwards He told them to draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast.
Now if you notice He told them "now", you see the wine that one would think of today, takes time to be wine. They filled the waterpots with water and when the ruler had tasted the wine that Jesus had caused to be, it was better than that which went before. Interesting isn't it??? I'll say that it is!!! This which He did established Him to be a man that one could lean and depend on for words of wisdom.
