Worship: For Heaven’s Sake End-time events are important, says Pastor Flemons. But the end-time event is the second coming of Christ. And that is the event upon which should demand our greatest focus. Focusing on Christ and His work in the Most Holy Place for us now will cause us to forsake sin, put away our arrogance, laziness, pride, backbiting, and our gossiping to become changed into His image. That is the work of the latter rain.
The former rain and the latter rain have two applications, according to Pastor Flemons. He says that it has an application that is personal to the individual and another application to the church. Your initial conversion is the former rain. And the latter rain is manifested in your life through the power of the Holy Spirit that ripens the individual experience.
“Under the figure of ‘the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain,’ the prophet Joel points out the work of the Spirit of God in the church. Joel 2:23. The rain accompanied the work of the Hebrew church: the former rain was given to the Christian church on the day of Pentecost following Christ’s ascension; the latter rain is an experience for the Remnant church. It ripens the grape for the harvest just before Christ’s second coming, which is the end of the world. Matt. 13:39.” (PTG)
[For further details, please read Joel 2:23; Psalm 139:23; Psalm 26:2; Matthew 13:39; Revelation 18:1-5; and “The Latter Rain for the Remnant Church” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 219 original; PTG 297, 298 latest edition; PTG 165, 166 online.) And listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, and hear him sing Hymn 251, “He Lives.”]
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, shared a healthline.com article that lists some health benefits of licorice. Although it is most familiar because of its use in candies and beverages, licorice has been used to soothe gastrointestinal problems. However, it is found to be beneficial also to cleanse the respiratory system, reduce stress, and aid in the treatment of breast and prostate cancers. Because of its antibacterial properties, it can be used to treat eczema and tooth decay.
Licorice can be purchased as an extract, a tea, or a powder. As an extract, licorice is most commonly used as a commercial sweetener in candies and beverages. Licorice root tea will normalize the blood sugar that has dropped, says Pastor Flemons. And the powder, when combined with a gel, can be used externally in the treatment of eczema and acne. The powder can also be poured into vegetable gel capsules for internal use. The article also provides what it calls safe maximum dosages to avoid potential unpleasant experiences with licorice.
