Worship: Order in the Camp / Wellness: Bad Eating Habits

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Even if by nature you are not an organized person like Pastor Flemons confesses that he is, you may still bring your life into order, he says. You don’t have to allow depression to continue, because of the disorder of your space or time. For the Bible says that we should do all things “decently and in order.” (Read 1 Corinthians 14:40.)

Consider how God set things in order for the Israelites as soon as they left Egypt. There was a specific order of the tribes of Israelites around the sanctuary. It was for their training and discipline.

“Even before they left Egypt a temporary organization had been effected, and the people were arranged in companies, under appointed leaders. At Sinai the arrangements for organization were completed. The order so strikingly displayed in all the works of God was manifest in the Hebrew economy. God was the center of authority and government. Moses, as His representative, was to administer the laws in His name. Then came the council of seventy, then the priests and the princes, under these ‘captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens’ (Numbers 11:16, 17; Deuteronomy 1:15), and, lastly, officers appointed for special duties. The camp was arranged in exact order, the tabernacle, the abiding place of God, in the midst, and around it the tents of the priests and the Levites. Outside of these each tribe encamped beside its own standard.” {Ed 37.4}

To bring your personal life into order, Pastor Flemons presented SPACE, a 5-point principle of organization. First, the S: Separate everything into piles. Don’t throw anything away yet. Just simply separate everything. This way you get to see what you really have, he says. That alone brings a sense of peace into your life. Do the same thing with time management. Simply write down what you need to do. Then group them. The P is for purge what is not needed. Do this also with time management. Some things don’t deserve your time. The A is for assigning things, as God assigned an exact place for everything in the sanctuary and every tribe camped around the sanctuary. Things in your home must have an assigned place, as things to do must have an assigned block of time. The C is for containing what has been assigned to a space or time period. Finally, the E: You must periodically evaluate your space and / or your schedule. Determine whether it is working out as is or whether you need to improve it in some way.

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, listed a few bad eating habits and their dangers. He says bad eating habits include overeating, eating between meals, drinking with meals, chewing gum and eating candy.

Overeating produces toxins and acids in the body that lead to gas. Your stomach can hold more than what it can handle. Therefore, don’t eat until you feel bloated.

Eating between meals prevents your digestive system from resting. It will cause constipation, indigestion, acid reflux, and flatulence, which is gas. It is best to leave five resting hours between meals. Smoothies are the exception.

Drinking with meals causes the digestive juices to be watered down so that proper digestion of the meal is impaired. Indigestion and gas are the result.

Chewing gum and eating candy between meals cause the digestive juices to be excreted for digestion. But because there is no food to be digested, only acids are left in the stomach and then the blood becomes acidic. These habits also force the system continue to work, rather than to rest as needed. If you want to chew gum or eat candy, it is best done nearest mealtime.

Words of Encouragement

Genesis 7:1 And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 39.)

John 15:9, 10  As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.(Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 35.)

Worship: Manna and Aaron’s Rod / Wellness: Frankincense and Cancer

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  God always takes care of His people. That is evident in how God cared for the children of Israel during their journey through the desert wilderness after their miraculous release from Egypt. God Himself fed them, raining manna down from Heaven every day, except the seventh day–Sabbath. One day prior to Sabbath, called the Preparation Day, manna was rained down in a double portion for both Friday and Saturday. That story in Exodus 16 shows the “perpetuity of Sabbath,” says Pastor Flemons. And it removes “from all minds any groundless speculations by future generations as to how the vast multitude of Israel were fed during their forty years’ wandering in the wilderness, where no other food of any kind and no water (except from the rock) could be obtained. Num. 20:5.” (PTG)

The story of Aaron’s rod that budded, in Numbers 16, shows the authority of God, which He gives to His chosen against those in rebellion, as was Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. It is also representative of parental authority or any leadership role, especially the leadership of Christ.

“It seems that both the pot of manna and Aaron’s rod were kept in the ark during the forty years’ wandering of Israel. But when the ark was put into Solomon’s temple at the time of the dedication of the temple, nearly 500 years later, we are told that ‘there was nothing in the ark save the two tables of stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when. . .the children of Israel. . .came out of the land of Egypt.” 1 Kings 8:9. (PTG)

[For additional details, please read Exodus 16 and Numbers 16, as well as “The Pot of Manna and Aaron’s Rod” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 166 original. PTG 226 new edition. PTG 126 online.) Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons and hear him sing Hymn 499, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, shared a MedicalNewsToday.com article, which provides data for the potential use of frankincense for cancer. Primarily, it states that frankincense fights inflammation, “always a factor in cancer,” says Pastor Flemons. Also, there is evidence that frankincense kills breast cancer cells, disrupts the growth of future cancer cells, and has antitumor properties, while it is harmless to healthy cells.

In its powder form, it is called Boswellia, says Pastor Flemons, and can be taken in capsule form. Of course, Frankincense oil has an aroma that, when added to bath soaks, is relaxing to the nerves and produces restful sleep. It also can be used in lotions for skin care. In fact, according to the MedicalNewsToday article, it may help with other diseases as well, including rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, bronchial asthma, and ulcerative colitis.

A DrAxe.com article was specific about ingesting the oil. “Add one to two drops of oil to eight ounces of water or to a tablespoon of honey for GI relief. If you’re going to ingest it orally, make sure it’s 100 percent pure oil; do not ingest fragrance or perfume oils.” Among other benefits, the article adds, “Due to its antiseptic properties, frankincense oil is a great addition to any oral hygiene regimen. . . . It can help prevent dental health issues like tooth decay, bad breath, cavities or oral infections. You can also consider making your own toothpaste by mixing frankincense oil with baking soda.”

Sharing Time  Several topics were briefly discussed when a listener asked questions like these: In the Book of Job, who were the sons of God? Before becoming Christians, are heathens and nonChristians considered sons of God? Is perfection possible, or will we be sinning until the day we die or until Jesus comes? Can frankincense be ingested? What is boswellia?

Special Announcement from the family of one of our listeners, Debra Williams, who passed Friday, October 19.

The Memorial Service for our beloved Sister, Debra Williams, will be held at Kingdom Builder’s Ministry, 1504 North Norwood Street Wallace, NC 28466, on October 28, 2018, at 3pm.

Words of Encouragement

Isaiah 59:19  So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Psalm 40:1, 2  I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. (Also read ST October 8, 1896, par. 6.)
