Worship: When Preachers Are Scared of the People, Pt 1 / Wellness: Why Too Much of Anything Hurts Your Liver


Worship: For Heaven’s Sake
Self-indulgent preachers are eating God’s people (symbolically), says Pastor Flemons, as he discussed Ezekiel 34:2-5. Because preachers want the tithes and offerings and the approval of the people, they don’t call the people away from sin, he says. They don’t give the people what they need. Instead, they preach soft messages and show that they are scared of the people.

Because they are afraid of having a near-empty church, they demean the health message. They mock it. The scorn it. And in various other ways, they wrongly influence the people against it. Yet, they have no answer when the people get sick and die. They pacify the people to death in exchange of their support and honor.

The time has come when “for the most part,” says Pastor Flemons, preachers would rather tell the word of the people to God, than tell the Word of God to the people. This was Day 1 of a 10-day revival. There’s more to come. He says, “Stay tuned.”

[For further details, read Ezekiel 34:2-5; Luke 9:1; Daniel 7:23, 24. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang “To Be Like Jesus.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that when you eat too much of anything, your liver is overburdened to keep you alive. Liver failure means certain death. The very word liver has as its base word live.

The liver processes fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It breaks them down into fatty acids, amino acids, and simple sugars. These are the three macronutrients that the liver breaks down into nutrients that the body can use. An excess of either one is dangerous to the liver.

Eating a plant-based diet helps prevent overburdening the liver. Add to that a simple healthy lifestyle. In this way you support the health of your liver. In turn, your liver helps you live.

Sharing and Caring Time Sis. Maria encouraged listeners with Psalm 27:1: “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” She also shared three quotes from the book Power of Prayer, a collection of quotes on prayer by Ellen G. White, Chapter 17, “The Strength of Prayer.”

1. “Devote your mind to spiritual things. Keep your mind from dwelling upon yourself. Cultivate a contented, cheerful spirit. You talk too much upon unimportant things. You gain no spiritual strength from this. If the strength spent in talking were devoted to prayer, you would receive spiritual strength and would make melody in your heart to God.”—(Testimonies for the Church 2:434, 435.) {Pr 83.2}

2. “You need to watch, lest the busy activities of life lead you to neglect prayer when you most need the strength prayer would give. Godliness is in danger of being crowded out of the soul through over-devotion to business. It is a great evil to defraud the soul of the strength and heavenly wisdom which are waiting your demand. You need that illumination which God alone can give. No one is fitted to transact his business unless he has this wisdom.”—(Testimonies for the Church 5:560.) {Pr 25.1}

3.”The reason why some are restless is, that they do not go to the only true source for happiness. They are ever trying to find out of Christ that enjoyment which is found alone in Him. In Him are no disappointed hopes. Oh how is the precious privilege of prayer neglected! The reading of the word of God prepares the mind for prayer. One of the greatest reasons why many have so little disposition to draw near to God by prayer is, that they have unfitted themselves for this sacred work by reading fascinating stories, which have excited the imagination and aroused unholy passions. The word of God becomes distasteful; the hour of prayer is not thought of. Prayer is the strength of the Christian. When alone, he is not alone; he feels the presence of One who has said, ‘Lo, I am with you alway.’”(The Review and Herald, March 11, 1880.) {Pr 31.2}
