Worship: The Day After a Spiritual High / Wellness: Gut Bacteria Causes Colon Cancer? “You don’t say!”

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  God had majestically spoken His Ten Commandments in the hearing of Moses and the children of Israel in a fiery display on the mountain, out of the cloud, where lightnings flashed, thunders roared, and the trumpet sounded. Then, God spoke to Moses to caution the people to live a holy life, without the glitter of gold and silver, without display. They were just to be faithful and realize that it is the presence of God Himself that sanctifies. Sin always separates. Therefore, says Pastor Flemons, the life principle following a spiritual high is to be practical, modest and faithful. (Read Exodus 20:18-26.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  A NYTimes.com article reports that recent research has found “growing evidence that gut bacteria modify the body’s immune system in unexpected and sometimes deadly ways.” It may be the “hidden cause,” they say, of “colon cancer, the third most common cancer in the United States.” Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that if you keep a healthy colon, you won’t get colon cancer. It really is a “no-brainer!” It’s simple. Bacteria is more likely in dairy and the flesh of dead animals than in fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains. And it is better when we grow our own food. Still, if we would eat only the foods God has permitted us to eat, we wouldn’t get colon cancer.

QTQT  Pastor Flemons responded to the question “How do I reduce triglycerides?” Answer: Lessen oils and nut butters. Use coconut oil. Adopt a diet of plant-based foods and eat largely of raw foods.

Worship: Reformation in The Netherlands and Scandinavia / Wellness: “Don’t listen to me! I’m a medical conspiracy theorist!”

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake   The men that formed the rank and file of the Reformers were scholars and theologians, who mastered the whole system of gospel truth. They were not “illiterate, sectarian, noisy controversialists–far from it; they were men who studied the word of God, and knew well how to wield the weapons with which the armory of the Bible supplied them.” {GC 243.3} (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, reviewed an article that lists common so-called medical conspiracy theories. The article states that researchers found at least 49 percent of adults believe at least one of the medical conspiracy theories. (Read more below.)

1 Corinthians 2:9-10  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

2 Timothy 3:14-15  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation though faith which is in Christ Jesus.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“From one of the provinces of Holland came Menno Simons. Educated a Roman Catholic and ordained to the priesthood, he was wholly ignorant of the Bible, and he would not read it for fear of being beguiled into heresy. . . . He soon after witnessed in a neighboring village the beheading of a man who was put to death for having been rebaptized. This led him to study the Bible in regard to infant baptism. He could find no evidence for it in the Scriptures, but saw that repentance and faith are everywhere required as the condition of receiving baptism. {GC 238.3}

“Menno withdrew from the Roman Church and [for twenty-five years] devoted his life to teaching the truths which he had received. In both Germany and the Netherlands a class of fanatics had risen, advocating absurd and seditious doctrines, outraging order and decency, and proceeding to violence and insurrection. Menno saw the horrible results to which these movements would inevitably lead, and he strenuously opposed the erroneous teachings and wild schemes of the fanatics. There were many, however, who had been misled by these fanatics, but who had renounced their pernicious doctrines; and there were still remaining many descendants of the ancient Christians, the fruits of the Waldensian teaching. Among these classes Menno labored with great zeal and success. {GC 239.1}

“Nowhere were the reformed doctrines more generally received than in the Netherlands. In few countries did their adherents endure more terrible persecution. . . . To read the Bible, to hear or preach it, or even to speak concerning it, was to incur the penalty of death by the stake. To pray to God in secret, to refrain from bowing to an image, or to sing a psalm, was also punishable with death. Even those who should abjure their errors were condemned, if men, to die by the sword; if women, to be buried alive. Thousands perished under the reign of Charles and of Philip II. {GC 239.3}

“As in the days when paganism sought to destroy the gospel, the blood of the Christians was seed. (See Tertullian, Apology, paragraph 50.) Persecution served to increase the number of witnesses for the truth. Year after year the monarch, stung to madness by the unconquerable determination of the people, urged on his cruel work; but in vain. Under the noble William of Orange the Revolution at last brought to Holland freedom to worship God.” {GC 240.3}

Tausen, “the Reformer of Denmark,” was educated at Cologne to distance him from Protestantism in Wittenberg. While at Cologne, then “a stronghold of Romanism,” Tausen obtained Luther’s writings and soon enrolled at Wittenberg. He returned to Denmark and was unsuspected of being a Lutheran, until he taught the true meaning of the Bible and preached Christ as the righteousness and only hope of the repentant sinner. He was removed and imprisoned and finally expelled from the monastery at just the time a royal edict permitted protection for teachers of Protestantism. The churches were opened to Tausen, and he preached. The New Testament was translated into the Danish tongue. Soon Denmark declared acceptance of the reformed faith.

Olaf Petri translated the New Testament into the Swedish language and ably defended the doctrines of the reformed faith against Romish champions in the presence of the monarch and leading men of Sweden. The “king of Sweden accepted the Protestant faith, and not long afterward the national assembly declared in its favor. . . . It was ordered throughout the Diet that throughout the kingdom, ministers should explain the Scriptures and that the children in the schools should be taught to read the Bible.” {GC 244.1}

(This study is based on chapter 13, “The Netherlands and Scandinavia,” in the book The Great Controversy (GC), by Ellen G. White.)

According to the article, “Here are some examples of the more common ones:

  • Doctors and the government insist on vaccinating kids even though they know these vaccines cause autism.
  • Health officials know that cellphones cause cancer but won’t acknowledge this because large corporations won’t let them.
  • The fluoridation of tap water is a sneaky way for chemical companies to dump dangerous chemicals into the environment.
  • The government created HIV as a form of genocide against African-Americans and gay men.
  • The government is preventing people from getting natural cures for cancer and other diseases because of pressure from pharmaceutical companies.”

Pastor Flemons says, ” I believe these statements are true. Can you show me the science to debunk these theories? God wants us to know the truth.”

Worship: Exalting the Cross / Wellness: Breastfeeding Prevents Endometriosis

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  It must be our practice to spread the word of God. We must show that the cross of Christ confirms that the law must be obeyed. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that “following God’s plan may mean slowing down” from the fast pace most are usually on in order to breastfeed. You may even need to eliminate some activity or other role to fulfill your role as a new mother. Breastfeeding is healthy both for baby and new mother. The nutrient molecules in breast milk are perfectly suited for the human. But it would not be so for cows. “Cows milk are for cows,” says Pastor Flemons. The molecule of cow’s milk is too large for the human body to effectively digest. It is this molecule that contributes to excess estrogen, which causes endometriosis and cancers that affect women. According to ScienceDaily.com, studies show that breastfeeding prevent endometriosis.

Psalm 36:7-8  How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trustunder the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

Philippians 1:6  Being confident of this one thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

For Heaven’s Sake…

“The priests and rulers had listened in silence to Christ’s pointed rebukes. They could not refute His charges. But they were only the more determined to entrap Him, and with this object they sent to Him spies, ‘which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of His words, that so they might deliver Him unto the power and authority of the governor.’ They did not send the old Pharisees whom Jesus had often met, but young men, who were ardent and zealous, and whom, they thought, Christ did not know. These were accompanied by certain of the Herodians, who were to hear Christ’s words, that they might testify against Him at His trial. The Pharisees and Herodians had been bitter enemies, but they were now one in enmity to Christ. DA 601.1

“The Pharisees had ever chafed under the exaction of tribute by the Romans. The payment of tribute they held to be contrary to the law of God. Now they saw opportunity to lay a snare for Jesus. The spies came to Him, and with apparent sincerity, as though desiring to know their duty, said, ‘Master, we know that Thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest Thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly: is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?’ DA 601.2

“The words, ‘We know that Thou sayest and teachest rightly,’ had they been sincere, would have been a wonderful admission. But they were spoken to deceive; nevertheless their testimony was true. The Pharisees did know that Christ said and taught rightly, and by their own testimony will they be judged. DA 602.1

“Those who put the question to Jesus thought that they had sufficiently disguised their purpose; but Jesus read their hearts as an open book, and sounded their hypocrisy. ‘Why tempt ye Me?’ He said; thus giving them a sign they had not asked, by showing that He read their hidden purpose. They were still more confused when He added, ‘Show Me a penny.’ They brought it, and He asked them, ‘Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar’s.’ Pointing to the inscription on the coin, Jesus said, ‘Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.’ DA 602.2

“The spies had expected Jesus to answer their question directly, in one way or the other. If He should say, It is unlawful to give tribute to Caesar, He would be reported to the Roman authorities and arrested for inciting rebellion. But in case He should pronounce it lawful to pay the tribute, they designed to accuse Him to the people as opposing the law of God. Now they felt themselves baffled and defeated. Their plans were disarranged. The summary manner in which their question had been settled left them nothing further to say. DA 602.3

“Christ’s reply was no evasion, but a candid answer to the question. Holding in His hand the Roman coin, upon which were stamped the name and image of Caesar, He declared that since they were living under the protection of the Roman power, they should render to that power the support it claimed, so long as this did not conflict with a higher duty. But while peaceably subject to the laws of the land, they should at all times give their first allegiance to God. DA 602.4

“The Saviour’s words, ‘Render . . . unto God the things that are God’s,’ were a severe rebuke to the intriguing Jews. Had they faithfully fulfilled their obligations to God, they would not have become a broken nation, subject to a foreign power. No Roman ensign would have waved over Jerusalem, no Roman sentinel would have stood at her gates, no Roman governor would have ruled within her walls. The Jewish nation was then paying the penalty of its apostasy from God. DA 602.5

“When the Pharisees heard Christ’s answer, ‘they marveled, and left Him, and went their way.’ He had rebuked their hypocrisy and presumption, and in doing this He had stated a great principle, a principle that clearly defines the limits of man’s duty to the civil government and his duty to God. In many minds a vexed question had been settled. Ever after they held to the right principle. And although many went away dissatisfied, they saw that the principle underlying the question had been clearly set forth, and they marveled at Christ’s far-seeing discernment. DA 602.6

(This study is based on Matthew 22:15-46; Mark 12:13-40; Luke 20:20-47; and chapter 66, “Controversy” in The Desire of Ages (DA), by Ellen G. White.)

For Health’s Sake… 

The kidneys are not appreciated for the job they do every day. Without them, you would need to drink 800 glasses of water every day to do the job that kidneys do with only 8 glasses of water daily. Throughout the day, kidneys are filtering toxins from the body that come into the body daily from eating and drinking acidic foods and drinks or experiencing stress.

Pastor Flemons recommends drinking pure, soft water, which includes distilled water. Distilled registers a perfect 7 on the pH scale. Eating fruits and vegetables will cause the body to register a bit higher than 7. On average, a pH of 7.2 is the goal for the body. Without water, you can never have a healthy pH.

Drink half your body’s weight in ounces of water daily. Don’t drink the day’s quota of water all at once. Spread it out over the day between your meals. Set at least 1 hour between the meal and drinking the water. This aids in better digestion of foods, which also helps keep toxins down. Undigested food left in the body putrefies and becomes toxic.

Drinking sufficient water daily helps the kidneys flush out toxins. Toxins cause disease. Without water, toxins collect. Without water, kidneys are damaged. With damaged kidneys and no water, the body is left defenseless against disease and death.
