Worship: The Law and the Laver / Wellness: Cleansing Cure

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The focus of today’s broadcast was on James 1:22-25; 1 John 3:4; and Romans 4:15, which inform us that God’s law, like a mirror, simply shows us what is wrong or what is sin, that we have broken God’s law and have sinned. Although lawkeeping does not save us, there is a blessing for the one who obeys the law. Pastor Flemons assured listeners that it is because of God’s love for us that this plan of salvation is in place for us. We, however, must acknowledge our sins and confess them. To live a new life in Christ, we must be justified through Christ, which includes forgiveness, cleansing and empowerment.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Expounding on a passage (p. 127.1) from the Ministry of Healing, by Ellen G. White, Pastor Flemons said that just as sin kills us spiritually, toxins kill us physically. Just as God’s law is an effort to free us from sin, His health message is an effort to free us from disease, which is an unhealthful condition that results as a violation of God’s health laws. Through cleansing, the body is assisted in its effort to expel impurities and reestablish right conditions, or balance, in the system.

QT/QT  A brief quiz time generated listener participation and testimonials.

Worship: The Laver, Cleansing / Wellness: Water Words

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons focused on the laver and its symbolism for cleansing or being born by the water and by the Spirit. Ezekiel 36:26,27; John 3:3-6; Psalm 51:10; Matthew 28:19,20; and Romans 6:4 were used to teach that God’s Spirit gets put into us and inspires us to obey God’s Word. This is the new life that begins as a result of being born again.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Combining this time in part with QT/QT time, Pastor Flemons invited listener participation in teaching the importance of water to the body’s major organs. Each of these organs must have water to achieve its unique bodily function. Water allows the kidneys to perform urination, the liver to achieve detoxification, the lungs to perform respiration, the colon to achieve defecation, and the skin to perform perspiration. Water is a cleanser. The book Ministry of Healing, authored by Ellen G. White, tells us that we must assist nature in her efforts to expel impurities from the bodily systems (p. 127.1). Healing, therefore, is linked to cleansing.

QT/QT:  We heard several testimonies of thankfulness.

Worship: Lamb on the Altar / Wellness: Making Healthy Hamburgers

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons described the process of justification, which took place daily in the courtyard of the sanctuary.  He explained that each sacrificial lamb or offering represented Jesus, the Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world. Using Psalm 77:13; Romans 5:1 and 3:25; 1 John 1:9; Luke 10:20; and Revelation 21:27, Pastor Flemons explained what the sanctuary provides, how past sins are forgiven, how not to grieve the Holy Spirit, how to have peace with God, how to have our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and what unconfessed sin brings. He also gave a bit of history about the “once saved, always saved” belief and indulgences.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Chef Lance Williams, of Times of Refreshing Wellness Ministry, demonstrated how to make healthy hamburgers (oatburgers). The demonstration is available on the TOR YouTube channel under the title “How to make a healthy hamburger and eat it like a horse.” The recipe is below.

QT/QT  A question was raised and answered about cancer.

Worship: Christ, the Door / Wellness: Weapons of Mass Destruction

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons used John 10:1,7,9; Jeremiah 31:3; 1 John 4:19; Hosea 11:4; 2 Corinthians 5:14; and Romans 5:5 to show that Jesus Christ is represented by the only door to the sanctuary, which ultimately leads to the throne of God in the Most Holy Place. Jesus draws us with cords of love and lovingkindness, and with that love constrains us and sheds it abroad in our hearts that we might obey Him out of a heart of love.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons provided an compelling comparison between the number of deaths resulting from WWI and WWII combined (77 million over approx. 10 years total) and the number of deaths caused by cancer (82 million) and heart attacks/strokes (140 million) over a 10-year period.  Astoundingly, weapons of mass destruction are our meals. The point was poignantly made with the account of Hitler’s invasion into Norway, where the pigs, chickens and cows were taken from the residents and given to the soldiers, which forced the people to eat only fruits, nuts and grains. During that time, deaths rapidly declined for the people. Sadly the deaths rapidly increased once they were able to return to the diet of flesh and dairy.

QT/QT: A question about the cause and remedy for nail fungus led to a brief discussion about candida, as well as the test and remedy for it.

Worship: Justification / Wellness: 10 Rules for Exercise

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Using these texts, Pastor Flemons explained justification and gave examples of appropriate and inadequate confession: 1 John 1:9, Romans 5:1,2,7-9; and 1 John 3:3. We must confess our sins to receive God’s forgiveness and to be cleansed from all unrighteousness.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons provided ten rules to observe when exercising. They are listed below.

QT/QT: Discussion about the danger of vigorous exercise, like swimming, too close to meals revealed known deaths that occurred as a result of violating this rule for exercise: Do not do any vigorous exercise one half hour before and after each meal.

Worship: Feast Days, Pt 2 / Wellness: Dairy

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons expanded on the seven feast days. The Passover represents the cross of Calvary, the Crucifixion. The Feast of Unleavened Bread represents that seven-day period of great disappointment after the death of Jesus. Pentecost represents the early rain of the Holy Spirit, as promised in the Bible. Afterward, the world went through a period commonly referred to as the Dark Ages. The Feast of Tabernacles refers to that period referred to as the Great Awakening. The Day of Atonement refers to that end-time judgment before the Second Coming of Christ. The Feast of Ingathering represents the Second Coming of Christ. The Feast of Tabernacles refers to the seven-day celebratory period between the Second Coming of Christ and the arrival in Heaven.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Dairy, we learned today, “may play a major role in the development of allergies, asthma, sleep difficulties, and migraine headaches,” according to the Israel Journal of Medical Sciences. “Especially processed cow’s milk has been linked to a variety of health problems, including: mucous production, hemoglobin loss, childhood diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis, arthritis, kidney stones, mood swings, depression, irritability, allergies,” according to the May 1995 issue of the Townsend Medical Letter. These statements and others were presented during this morning’s broadcast, and Pastor Flemons elaborated on them, particularly explaining the toxic problem of undigested protein in the human system as a result of consuming flesh foods and dairy. Pastor Flemons shared a recipe for milk.

QTQT: A request to explain the ceremony of the wave sheaf and info regarding the octave of the feast of tabernacles has led to a potential study, certainly a fuller response in the morning’s broadcast this week.

Worship: Feast Days / Wellness: Cancer and Sugar

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons introduced and gave an overview of all the feast days: Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Feast of Tabernacles, Day of Atonement, Feast of Ingathering, and Feast of Tabernacles. All but two of the feast days are past: the Feast of Ingathering, when Christ returns to reap His harvest of faithful followers at His Second Coming, and the Feast of Tabernacles, which refers to that time (7 days) between Christ’s Second Coming and the arrival in Heaven with the saved He “harvested” from Earth.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Referring to a study posted on the website NatureWorksBest.com, Pastor Flemons summarized the cancer-sugar study covered in an article by Colleen Huber, NMD. The article, “Glycemic Restriction in Cancer Patients: A 7-Year, Controlled Interventional Study,” states that 317 human patients were studied and that they determined that cancer patients should not use a sweetner, other than stevia, which is a natural, plant-based sweetner.

Worship: Sanctuary Overview, Most Holy Place / Wellness: Addiction, Health or Moral Issue?

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons described the furnishings located in the Most Holy Place of the sanctuary and the articles located in them. He provided an overview of the ceremony on the Day of Atonement, explaining that atonement is essentially “at – one – ment” with God. It was a day of soul-affliction, as mentioned in Leviticus 17:29 and 30. That means the sinner’s attitude is one of “search me, O God” and “examine me,” as the psalmist pleads in Psalm 139:23 and Psalm 26:2-3. He briefly explained feast days; the ministry of Jesus, our High Priest, in the Most Holy Place; and the eradication of sin.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Referring to an NPR report about a new bill that makes addiction only a health issue, not also a moral one, Pastor Flemons explained the danger in such a law leading to the potential loss of souls who would feel no remorse for their sin, since it is only considered a “health issue.” That shifts responsibility for sin away from the sinner. Beyond that, the Bible makes it clear that the health message is always linked to the gospel. Read Proverbs 17:22 and Isaiah 58, especially verse 8.)

Worship: Sanctuary Overview, the Holy Place / Wellness: Right Things, Wrong Times

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons presented an overview of the second compartment of the sanctuary: the Holy Place. Opening with the reading of Psalm 46 and Hebrews 8:1-5, Pastor Flemons reiterated that the sanctuary is the first scaled model in history and best explains the plan of redemption. As in the courtyard justification is obtaining salvation through pardon for sin and a new heart, so in the Holy Place sanctification is the abstaining power to resist sin. It is a growth process that draws strength from the Word of God (represented by the table of shewbread), prayer (represented by the altar of incense), and shining or witnessing for Christ (represented by the golden candlestick). In the Holy Place, listener’s learned, is symbolized why prayers must be offered in the name of Jesus.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Right things to avoid at wrong times include eating just before going to bed, drinking with meals, exercising too close to mealtimes, and eating between meals. Doing these right things at wrong times can lead to leaky gut syndrome, heart attacks, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and other diseases, says Pastor Flemons, who also assured listeners that it is never the right time to do the wrong thing.

QT/QT  Q&A surrounded the symbolism of the table of shewbread, the golden candlestick, the movement of Jesus among the seven candlesticks, and SOP. The baking soda/molasses remedy was provided upon request. It was noted that remedies that include baking soda and coffee are not endorsements for using them as dietary ingredients or foods.

Worship: Sanctuary Overview, Courtyard / Wellness: Healthy Traveling Tips

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The articles or furnishings of the sanctuary’s outer court were described. The outer court, Pastor Flemons taught, represents the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ. It is where the sinner is justified. Justification provides complete pardon of past sin and a new heart for the sinner who repentantly confesses his sin.  This “new heart” is the power of God unto salvation, as stated in Romans 1:16. That is the gospel. The sanctuary message is the gospel of Jesus Christ explained in the Old Testament. Psalm 77:13 states, “Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary…” And John 14:6 quotes Jesus as saying, “…I am the way…” Join us as we more clearly see Jesus in the sanctuary.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Health traveling tips Pastor Flemons shared include these: stay hydrated; get rest whenever and wherever you can; take a superfood with you; ask assertively for water or juice at meals that don’t offer anything you can safely eat; eat trail mix, fruit, etc.; find a restaurant with as healthy food choices as possible.

QT/QT  Discussion led to additional healthy traveling tips, like walking through the airport between flights and skipping a meal to take a nap.
