Worship: For Heaven’s Sake Expressions of frustration and anger that include the name of Jesus are forbidden. They are akin to four-letter derogatory words. God’s name is not to be used flippantly, even abbreviated like “OMG.” But there is also another way that people take God’s name in vain, says Pastor Flemons. And that has to do with character.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that the medical community claims to not know the cause of diabetes, type 2. “Every disease has a cause,” he says. And he proceeded to list those things that cause diabetes, type 2. (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement
Psalm 147:11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
Proverbs 14:2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: But he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.
For Heaven’s Sake…
When we become a follower of Christ, we take the name of Christ. We are called Christian. As such, our behavior must show that we belong to Christ. We must behave as Christ would.
Romans 8:26 says the Holy Spirit intercedes and presents our prayers to God in a language that cannot be spoken. Since that is so, then the actual name of God is one that is in no human language. That means that the Hebrew language is not that sacred language that the Holy Spirit uses to address God. Therefore, to those who believe that the actual Hebrew name of God must be used or you are taking God’s name in vain, Pastor Flemons says, “Not so.”
The Son of God in the Septuagint or Greek Bible translation is the name of Joshua. Translators into the English spelled the name Jesus. The name Jesus has nothing to do with Zeus, the name of a pagan god.
The Bible says that God takes pleasure in those that fear Him. It also clarifies who those are: they show that they fear God by behaving uprightly.
For Health’s Sake…
But first it is important to distinguish that diabetes, type 2, is a condition of insulin resistance. It is not one of insulin insufficiency. All cells have insulin receptors. But when they get coated with fat and toxins, insulin cannot gain access. Fat and toxins, therefore, are the real cause of diabetes. How do they get coated with fat and toxins? Pastor Flemons explained.
For one, stress causes a buildup of excess fat and sugar for fight or flight, while it slows down the elimination of toxins.
Also, the standard American diet of animal flesh and byproducts is a prescription for diabetes, says Pastor Flemons. Any diet high in fat or protein or high in sugar and starches causes the body to store more fat. Naturally occurring estrogen, as well as artificial estrogen, in meat and dairy animals cause more fat to be stored in cells. Xenoestrogens in processed foods do the same thing and cause diabetes.
A sedentary lifestyle, with little exercise, causes increased fat storage.
A lack of rest leads to more stress, which causes fat storage.
Habits of drinking alcohol, smoking, and overdoing anything, including good work, add toxins to the body.
Low vitamin D levels, usually due to insufficient exposure to sunlight, cause an increase of insulin resistance.
In essence, a violation of the laws of health causes diabetes. Therefore, adhering to the laws of health as expressed in the REFRESHING Way lifestyle is the best way to avoid diabetes. It’s God’s plan for wellness.
