Worship: For Heaven’s Sake Pastor Flemons read this passage from the Path to the Throne of God:
“A seal imparts authority and validity to a document. It contains the name of the ruling power and the territory over which he rules. In the very heart of the law of God, in the Sabbath commandment, is enshrined the name of God, expressive of His authority, and the territory over which He reigns–His name, ‘the Lord thy God,’ the Creator; His kingdom, ‘Heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is.’ Ex. 20:10,11. This is God’s seal with which He seals His law among His disciples. Isa. 8:16.
“God commemorated His work of Creation by resting on the seventh day. This made it ‘the Sabbath (the rest day) of the Lord thy God.’ ‘Wherefore (because of His own act of resting on this day), He blessed the Sabbath day (a special blessing given to no other day,) and hallowed it (made it a holy day).’ Ex. 20:9-11. Then He ‘sanctified it;’ Gen. 2:3; that is He set it apart from all the other days to be used for sacred purposes. No other day received this honor, God had made it holy and sacred; He made it not for the Jew only, nor any one class of men, but ‘for man,’ for all mankind. Mark 2:27. Then to man He said, ‘Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.’ Ex. 20:8. Every precept of God’s holy law is a divine requirement for which there is no substitute, for the Holy Spirit through James says: ‘Whosoever shall. . .offend in one point; he is guilty of all. . .he is a transgressor of the law. . .the law by which all shall be judged.’ James 2:8-12.
“The Sabbath commandment as God’s seal makes the law of God ‘a perpetual covenant’ between God and man ‘forever,’ Ex. 31:16, 17, having the authority of the Creator of heaven and earth and sea. As a seal ratifies a document, so the Creator’s seal ratifies His law. Without this, none of His law would have any divine authority. Without the fourth commandment the law being without God’s seal, would lose its validity.
“The Holy Spirit is the instrument that stamps the seal of God on the heart. Eph. 4:30. Without this, the Sabbath loses its sacredness and becomes merely a day of physical rest and recreation–not a holy day. If we keep the Sabbath ‘holy,’ the Holy Spirit will place the seal of God upon us, and we shall have ‘the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.’ 2 Cor. 1:22. The Holy Spirit is the ‘earnest,’ the pledge or the assurance, whereby we obtain our divine inheritance. No one can truly keep the Sabbath ‘holy’ without the Holy Spirit in his heart.”

Worship: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, discussed fibroid tumors. Fibroids, he says, are generally benign tumors that are the result of toxins that build up. And they are associated with excessive amounts of estrogen.
The primary source of concentrated estrogen is the flesh of animals. Therefore to avoid consuming excess estrogen, stay away from animal products and refined foods. Also avoid toxic foods, drinks, and chemicals that contain xenoestrogens, which are estrogen-like compounds. Consume lesser amounts of soy products and even carrot juice, says Pastor Flemons. They contain phytoestrogens, which also tend to raise estrogen levels in the body.
Eat a whole-food, plant-based diet, fibrous foods that keep the bowels flowing normally. And get a lot of exercise. In this way, estrogen gets released from the body. But when the body is constipated, estrogen gets reabsorbed by the body.
“It’s all about cleansing,” says Pastor Flemons. A juice feast with more green drinks is highly recommended. It flushes out toxins and helps balance hormones. Actually, when there is too much of any hormone, says Pastor Flemons, “things go wrong.” Herbs that help balance hormones include Mullein, Burdock, Motherwort, Yellow Dock, Prickley Ash, and Cleavers. These are all contained in TOR’s FibroidEx, which comes as a tea or tonic. Stevia may be included as the optional sweetner.
