Worship: For Heaven’s Sake Sensuality may be the sin of the age. It may appear to be the normal thing to do–accepted– even among church people. But God wants so much more from us, says Pastor Flemons. He requires sexual purity from His people, especially at the borders of heavenly Canaan, which is where we are today. (Read more below.)
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, suggests this: If God didn’t put something in your breast, neither should you. Breast implants have been associated with a rare type of cancer, according to a FoxNews.com article. (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement
Romans 14:4-5 Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
Romans 4:19-21 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
For Heaven’s Sake…
The seventh commandment says, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14). Sex is permitted only between a husband and his wife. It is a sacred right. It is a sacred symbol of oneness, communion, harmony, and unity. It is a holy encounter.
Sexual immorality causes a curse on yourself, says Pastor Flemons. You won’t pray as you should. You won’t relish holy things as you should. Sexual sin is different from all other sins in that it is the one sin that causes you to sin against your own body, according 1 Corinthians 6:18. “There is no sin that demoralizes you more than that of adultery,” says Pastor Flemons.
Israel died in large numbers just as they reached the borders of Canaan. They had allowed themselves to be overtaken in sexual sin, which led immediately to idolatry and blinded them to the requirements of God. The same satanic temptation is to be expected as God’s people today have reached the borders of heavenly Canaan. These are the final days of earth’s history. And sexual immorality is likely more rampant now than ever.
The warning for today is that Satan is as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). “It is very seldom one escapes from a roaring lion,” says Pastor Flemons. It is before the lion roars, while he is still seeking, that it is still time to escape. “Avoid the first approach to danger,” he says . Watch for it that you may see the temptation of adultery before it can happen. Psalm 101:3 warns you to “set no wicked thing” before your eyes. That means turn away, not just from pornography but from any wicked thing that may even appear on regular programming or anywhere else. For once you are all caught up, it is hard to break loose. Be wise. Don’t sell yourself cheap.
Others have overcome, and so can you. “Break off sin by righteousness,” says Pastor Flemons. (Read Daniel 4:27.) Bury yourself in the study of God’s Word, the Bible, and be in prayer. Be determined to rather die than commit a wrong act.
For Health’s Sake…
One study “suggests that women with breast implants are 421 times more likely to develop breast anaplastic large-cell lymphoma.” “Anaplastic large-cell lymphoma is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a white blood cell cancer that typically affects older adults and is more common in men than in women. In recent years, the number of women diagnosed with anaplastic large-cell lymphoma in the breast has increased, raising concerns that implants might cause malignancies,” according to researchers as noted in JAMA Oncology.
Although researchers have not clearly identified why implants are linked to the rare cancer, they did identify that the macrotextured implants were the type of implants predominantly found among the cases in the study. Although some women choose implants because of medical reasons, too frequently women choose breast implants for cosmetic reasons. In any case, Pastor Flemons appealed to men to help make women feel comfortable and valued just as they are.
