Worship: For Heaven’s Sake God requires us to love each other that others may know that we are His disciples. (Read John 13:35.) But He didn’t say there wouldn’t be conflicts, says Pastor Flemons. That’s why we can find in the Bible a guide for dealing with them. (Read more below.)
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Scleroderma was once a rare condition, but now it is on the rise, says Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness and naturopathy. (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement
Isaiah 1:18-19 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.
John 17:20-21 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
For Heaven’s Sake…
Here is the process to peace when someone has offended you:
Matthew 18:15-17 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
Stubbornness in sin is not tolerated by God and neither should be tolerated in the church. A refusal to repent of an offence or wrongdoing is satanic. That person shows by his or her stubbornly rude bearing that he or she is not a Christian and does not belong in the peaceful, loving family of God.
What if you learn that you are the offender? Whether it was intentional or not, there is a process to peace.
Matthew 5:23-25 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Loving peace is so critical to God that He will not accept our worship, unless we make sincere effort to be reconciled to our brethren. In fact, we must not worship without reconciliation. Like the disciples, we must learn this: “No one wins, until we all win.”
Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
For Health’s Sake…
Scleroderma is a condition of the skin, where the skin thickens, because collagen grows and multiplies uncontrollably. Collagen is an elastic protein in the skin. Scleroderma is not cancer, although the cells do proliferate uncontrollably like cancer cells do.
When the skin thickens enough at the joints, the person loses the ability to bend at the elbows or fingers. The hands can’t close. The facial muscles can be so affected that they are inoperative. Scleroderma can really cause a lot of pain, says Pastor Flemons.
Doctors consider it one of the thousands of idiopathic diseases and don’t really know a solution for it. Having helped a number of victims with scleroderma, Pastor Flemons says it responds very well to detoxification and cleansing, as do most autoimmune diseases. There is a toxin, an abnormality, there–some imbalance, says Pastor Flemons, which is flushed out with cleansing and juicing and water fasting. And getting the proper nutrition really helps, he says.
After seven days, you can use the natural substance DMSO, if you are in those areas where it is legal. DMSO is a byproduct of wood. It is a powerful solvent, used in hospitals for bladder inflammation and is administered by catheter. Because it is listed as a drug, a prescription is needed. However, health food stores sell it in a creamlike substance, marked not for human use.
Because it is such a powerful solvent, it must be used with great care and not with any other chemical. Because of its illegal status in some areas of the world, Times of Refreshing does not use it and cannot recommend its use in those areas. But because it is being used, TOR wants to warn that DMSO should not be applied with rubber gloves or over stockings, as hosiery and rubber gloves can contain chemicals that will be absorbed into the bloodstream.
What TOR does recommend are herbs, such as valerian, white willow bark for cleansing and Jamaican dogwood for pain.
