Worship: For Heaven’s Sake God has given to His church in every generation the “special assignment” of “carrying the everlasting gospel to the world. The task, the high and holy privilege, of the Hebrew church was to teach the idolatrous nations around them of the true and living God that inhabiteth eternity, and of the holy and just and eternal character of His law, His oracle.”
“. . .The Israelites had seen the utter helplessness of false gods; they had experienced the mighty power of the true God, the One who had delivered them in time of need. At Sinai they had witnessed His glory in the proclamation of His law, the fourth commandment of which identifies Him as the true God, the Creator. All this was intended to help them realize the importance and the seriousness of their mission.”
Furthermore, “they were given. . .Canaan, the cross roads of the nations, where they would be constantly in touch with those whom they were to help. All through the twenty-five hundred years of the supremacy of the Hebrew church, special emphasis was placed upon the Sabbath of God’s law, as evidence that He who created the world is the only true God, and that therefore heart obedience to His law is a necessary passport to heaven. The same eternal passport will be required of every succeeding generation of the church, for only ‘they that do His commandments. . .may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the City.’ Rev. 22:14.” PTG

Worship: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that antioxidants get rid of free radicals. The question “What Do Antioxidants Do?” got answered in an article bearing the same title. It states that antioxidants “neutralize free radicals, preventing them from damaging the body. They often act by donating electrons to free radicals, making them more stable. They also can degrade free radicals, rendering them harmless.”
According to the UniversityHealthNews.com article, free radicals are “highly unstable molecules produced naturally as a byproduct of chemical reactions in our cells and also when we are exposed to toxins. Free radicals are formed when the food we eat is converted into energy, when we exercise, and when we are exposed to things like sunlight, cigarette smoke, radiation, or pollution.”
It is when the body becomes overwhelmed with free radicals that DNA can become damaged and disease like cancer can develop. Also cellular walls can become compromised and allow entrance to extracellular substances. Antioxidants are the answer.
Foods high in antioxidants include fresh berries, kale and other green leafy vegetables, bell peppers, sunflower seeds, artichokes, pomegranates, and nuts. Although the article listed green tea and dark chocolate, Pastor Flemons warns against consuming them because they also contain caffeine.
