Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The church was “hijacked,” says Pastor Flemons. And the Bible prophesied it. The Roman Catholic Church took over the Christian church and substituted tradition for doctrine.
In Jeremiah 6:2; and 2 Corinthians 11:2, 3 (as well as Zechariah 9:9; and Lamentations 2:13;), the Bible reveals that a woman represents a church. Revelation 12:6, 13 and 14, as well as Revelation 13:5-7 and Daniel 7:25 reveal that a Roman entity would persecute the woman (the church) for 1260 years. Ezekiel 4:6 and Numbers 14:34 show the key to unlocking time prophecies: that one day is equivalent to one year. In time, history confirmed the prophecy.
In AD 538 Emperor Justinian gave the scepter of the Roman Empire to Pope Julius, says Pastor Flemons. That began the reign of the Roman Catholic Church and the Dark Ages. It continued until 1798, when General Berthier took captive the pope.
“Don’t ever suppress the Bible; it will come to backfire on you,” says Pastor Flemons. The Roman Catholic Church tried to annihilate Protestantism. That, along with practices of debauchery, only fueled the French Revolution, he says. France rebelled furiously. They stood squarely against the Bible as promoted by Catholicism and officially embraced atheism. In the process, the pope was imprisoned right on prophetic time: 1260 years after the Papacy was empowered.
The Dark Ages are so called because during this time, the Bible was available only in the language that the priests could understand: Latin. The masses then had to rely on the biblical reading and interpretation of priests. This gave the church near absolute power over the lives of their subjects. But the Bible through both the Old Testament and the New Testament quietly witnessed for Truth. Even that detail was prophesied.
“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth”(Revelation 11:3).
[For additional details, please read Daniel 4:16; and Genesis 7:11-8:14; and listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who also shared the love story of a couple that miraculously escaped the fires of papal persecution against Christians. You may read the entire story in the book My Escape from the Auto de Fe. Several sources and prices (ranging from $5 to $90) are listed for your convenience.]
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that if you were bitten by a poisonous snake, you could die. That is common knowledge. What may not be so commonly known is that “snake venom is almost pure protein,” he says. “It’s just undigested protein.”
Immediately after a snake bite, the immune system responds, causing a rise in histamine, which is a vasodilator. Blood vessels dilate, and swelling is seen in the area of the bite. This teaches that undigested protein is toxic to the body, says Pastor Flemons.
Similarly, but only to a milder degree, he says that the immune system mounts this kind of response when you eat lots of flesh and dairy products, which have large protein molecules that are hard to digest. The body sees these so-called foods as toxins. If the area affected is the skin, you will see a rash. “You can break out in hives,” he says. If it’s the eyes, they can become bloodshot and itchy. If it happens in your lungs, you can have an asthma attack.
Similar responses can happen when eating habits include eating between meals, eating too much, drinking with meals, and going to bed too soon after eating huge meals. In fact, he says , “Anything that hinders digestion hinders the digestion of protein.”
The vast majority of allergies and asthma can be knocked out, he says, if you would simply eat a total plant-based diet with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables, daily drink half of your body’s weight in ounces, get adequate rest every night, and regularly exercise.
