Worship: Timing of the Sunday Law Pt 1 / Wellness: Benefits of the Isotonic Flush

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Analogies can provide great spiritual lessons, says Pastor Flemons. But they should not be used as directives by divine authority. Yet, when God’s inspired prophet makes an analogy, indeed, it can be accepted as divine authority.

Reading from the introduction to volume 5 of the Testimonies for the Church (5T), Pastor Flemons set the time of the writings combined in the volume: 1881 – 1889. Afterward, he read a portion of the call to action, which in part says this: “…A crisis threatened in the United States in the form of a proposed national sunday law. In this connection there was brought before Mrs. White the views of the impending conflict and the issues which the church must meet as apostate Protestantism unites with Catholicism to enforce oppressive measures. The pathetic lethargy of those who understood the issues was clearly portrayed, and there was a call to action. {5T 7.1}

She wrote, “As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians, so the assumption of power on the part of our nation in the decree enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us. It will then be time to leave the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains. . . .”  {5T 464.3}

Pastor Flemons believes the siege of Jerusalem happened in 1888, and that the second siege will be the national Sunday law. The first siege, he says, happened at the unanimous adoption of the Sunday Bill, December 12, 1888. That Bill was defeated in committee by an early Adventist pioneer, Alonzo T. Jones, December 13, 1888.

(For additional details, please read the text of the Bill below. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Shelem Flemons and hear him sing “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus.”)

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that the isotonic flush, which can be ordered separately from TOR’s Total Body Cleanse Kit, is really purified ocean or seawater. Because the average person tends to starve on a full stomach of foods lacking in nutrients, every mineral the body needs can be replenished with the Isotonic Flush.

Two quarts of water with the Isotonic Flush must be consumed within 45 minutes. However, 1 tablespoon of the Isotonic Flush to 1 quart of water is the basic combination. Persons with hypertension must combine only 2 teaspoons of the Isotonic Flush to 1 quart of water. The flush must be done first thing in the morning, when the valve between the stomach and intestines is open.

Once a meal is consumed this valve closes. Once the valve closes, Pastor Flemons only recommends taking one-fourth of a teaspoon in a little water, just to add minerals in the body. This would not be the flush, of course.

When properly done, the flush will provide a sensation of strength and energy, which tends to come later in the day. The benefit is lots of nutrition. But it will give a temporary diarrhea effect. That is the reason Pastor Flemons advises being done with the flush at least an hour or two before needing to exit your home. You do not want to get caught in traffic when a wave of the temporary diarrhea hits.

Words of Encouragement

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  

HERE IS THE WORDING IN THE BILL:
The Bill with Changes Desired by the American Sabbath Union

Unanimously adopted December 12, 1888. (Changes indicated by the full-face letters and stars.) BSRB 19.1 [The Bill was defeated by Alonzo T. Jones December 13, 1888.]

A Bill to secure to the People the enjoyment of the Lord’s Day, commonly known as Sunday, as a Day of Rest, and to Protect its observance as a Day of Religious Worship. BSRB 19.2

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That on Sunday, no person or corporation, or the agent, servant, or employé of any person or corporation, shall perform, or authorize to be performed, any secular work, labor, or business, * * * works of necessity, mercy, and humanity excepted; nor shall any person engage in any play, game, show, exhibition, or amusement * * * open to the public, or of a public character, in any Territory, district, vessel, or place subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States; nor shall it be lawful for any person or corporation to receive pay for labor or service performed or rendered in violation of this section. BSRB 19.3

SEC. 2. That no mails or mail matter shall hereafter be transported in time of peace over any land postal route, nor shall any mail matter be collected, assorted, handled, or delivered during any part of Sunday. BSRB 20.1

SEC. That the prosecution of commerce between the States and with the Indian tribes, * * * by the transportation of persons or property by land or water * * * on the first day of the week * * * is hereby prohibited, and any person or corporation, or the agent or employé of any person or corporation, who shall * * * violate this section, shall be punished by a fine of not less than ten nor more than one thousand dollars, and no service performed in the prosecution of such prohibited commerce shall be lawful, nor shall any compensation be recoverable, or be paid for the same. BSRB 20.2

SEC. 4. That all military and naval drills, musters, and parades, not in time of active service or immediate preparation therefore, of soldiers, sailors, marines, or cadets of the United States, on the first day of the week, except assemblies, are hereby prohibited; nor shall any unnecessary labor be performed or permitted in the military or naval service of the United States on the Lord’s day. BSRB 20.3

SEC. 5. That it shall be unlawful to pay or to receive payment or wages in any manner for service rendered, or for labor performed, or for the transportation of persons or of property in violation of the provisions of this act, nor shall any action lie for the recovery thereof; and when so paid, whether in advance or otherwise, the same may be recovered back by whoever shall first sue for the same. BSRB 20.4

SEC. 6. That labor or service performed and rendered on Sunday in consequence of accident or disaster, or unavoidable delays in making the regular connections upon postal routes and routes of travel and transportation, the * * * transportation and delivery of milk before 5 A.M. and after 10 P.M.* * * shall not be deemed violations of this act, but the same shall be construed, so far as possible, to secure to the whole people rest from toil during Sunday, their mental and moral culture, and the protection of the religious observance of the * * * day. BSRB 20.5

(Proposed changes by the American Sabbath Union) By a comparison of the bold-faced letters and the stars with the corresponding portion of the original bill, the changes will be readily discerned. Following are, in part, the reasons given by the committee for the changes which they ask:- BSRB 21.1

“For religious purposes we prefer the name Lord’s Day or Christian Sabbath; but as Sunday is already used in National laws, we think it better to use that uniformly in this bill, with the exception of the double name in the title. BSRB 21.2

“The word ‘promote,’ in the title, goes beyond what many, even your Christian citizens, believe to be the proper function of Government with reference to ‘religious worship,’ while the word ‘protect’ (see also last line), expresses a duty which Government owes to all legitimate institutions of the people. BSRB 21.3

“Experience in the courts has shown that the words ‘show, exhibition,’ should be added to the list of prohibited Sunday amusements, and the words, ‘in public,’ in place of ‘to the disturbance of others,’ as the latter clause has been construed as requiring that persons living in the neighborhood of a Sunday game or show must testify that they have been disturbed, in order to a conviction, which cannot be done in some cases without personal peril. BSRB 21.4

“In Section 2, we believe that the exceptions for letters relating to sickness, etc., are unnecessary in this age of the telegraph; and that they would be used by unscrupulous men in business correspondence, and that this would destroy most of the benefits of the law in its bearing on Sunday mails. BSRB 21.5

“In Section 3, we believe the exceptions made would greatly interfere with the administration of the law. The exception for works of mercy and necessity is made, once for all, in the first section. The reference to ‘the disturbance of others’ is objectionable, for reasons already given, and the word ‘willfully’ is an old offender in Sabbath legislation, and requires evidence very hard to get in regard to one’s motive and knowledge of the law. In other laws it is assumed that one knows the law, and the law-making power should use that the laws are well published, and leave no room for one to escape by agnosticism. BSRB 21.6

“In Section 5 (as in Section 1 also), we would omit ‘Lord’s day,’ and in Section 6, ‘Sabbath,’ in order to preserve uniformity in using the less religious term, Sunday. BSRB 22.1

In Section 6, we think refrigerator cars make Sunday work in transportation of perishable food, except milk, unnecessary, and the new stock cars, with provision for food and water, do the same for stock trains. So many of the State Sunday laws have proved almost useless in protecting the rights of the people to Sunday rest and undisturbed worship, by the smallness of their penalties and the largeness of their exceptions, that we covet from Congress a law that shall make itself effective by small exceptions and large penalties.”
