Worship: 666 / Wellness: Spirulina and Chlorella

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  “A text out of context is a pretext,” says Pastor Flemons. Every Bible text, therefore, must be read within its context. To do that, he says, is to always read the surrounding verses. That will give you a clue as to the meaning of the text. Then stay as close as possible to the context, keeping in mind that some texts have more than one application.

Pastor Flemons says that Revelation 13:18 may be just such a text. The text specifically mentions counting the number of the beast. The beast, as described in the first ten verses of the chapter and as history records, points to the Roman Catholic Church, as Pastor Flemons discussed in greater detail. And in Roman numerals the title of the pope (Vicarius Filii Dei) does add up to the number 666. However, the primary application of identifying the number of the beast, he believes, has to do with the image beast.

He then shared a reading from what he says is Ellen G. White’s only reference to 666. From A Word to the Little Flock, p. 19, he read this:

“I saw all that ‘would not receive the mark of the Beast, and of his Image, in their foreheads or in their hands,’ could not buy or sell. 5 I saw that the number (666) of the Image Beast was made up; 6 and that it was the beast that changed the Sabbath, and the Image Beast had followed on after, and kept the Pope’s, and not God’s Sabbath. And all we were required to do, was to give up God’s Sabbath, and keep the Pope’s, and then we should have the mark of the Beast, and of his Image.” {WLF 19.1}

She saw, says Pastor Flemons, that the number 666 is of the image of the beast: apostate Protestantism, primarily in America. The context is buying and selling, says Pastor Flemons, who read the only other two Bible texts that mention 666: 1 Kings 10:14 and 2 Chronicles 9:13. Both mention only the weight of gold, which may refer to its importance or influence, says Pastor Flemons. Certainly, there will be an economic pressure that challenges our eternal salvation.

Four things that the saints of God must overcome in the Last Days, he says, are revealed in Revelation 15:2. These must overcome the beast (the Papacy), his mark (enforced Sunday worship), his image (influence of apostate Protestant religious leaders), and the number of his name.

Economically speaking, Pastor Flemons says that we can learn a lot from the self-reliance of the Amish culture, which is financially prosperous. Like them, we must learn now how to do without the convenience of earthly supports and the influence of money in order to be ready for the time of the end. Our dependence must be on God alone.

[For additional details, please read Revelation 13:18; Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6;  Revelation 16:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 17:15; Daniel 7:23; John 10:33; Mark 14:64; 2:7; 1 Kings 10:14; Revelation 182 Chronicles 9:13. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 469, “Leaning On the Everlasting Arms.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that if you are on a raw diet, you would be wise to include spirulina and chlorella. They are superfoods. Spirulina is already an ingredient in TOR’s AAA Supertonic Superfood. However, chlorella is soon to be added, he says.

From a naturalstacks.com article on the top five benefits of spirulina and chlorella, Pastor Flemons read this:

“Spirulina and chlorella are the missing nutrient in your diet that are 1000X more powerful than fruits and vegetables.

“However, the truth is, one gram of algae – the amount in a single tablet – contains the nutritional equivalent of 1,000 grams of fruits and vegetables.

“So make no mistake about it, these nutrient dense blue green algae, Spirulina (a bacteria) and Chlorella (a plant) are true superfoods.

“Spirulina contains 2.5X more protein per ounce than steak and 2-5X more antioxidants per ounce than leading fruits and vegetables.

“A mere 30 gram serving of chlorella has 5X the chlorophyll content of kale and contains more iron than liver.

“They’re also the most potent source of plant-based omega-3’s and Vitamin B12 – making them a powerful supplement for non-meat eaters.”

Sharing Time  Pastor Flemons shared a testimony of his ministry among the Amish in Pennsylvania. Pastor Flemons responded to a health question about a racing heartbeat. He also responded to the claim that modern day Pharisees are those who obey God in following the Spirit of Prophecy, particularly the writings of Ellen G. White, as it relates to country living.

2 Peter 2:6  And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly. (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 53.)

Isaiah 54:8  In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer. (Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 49.)

Worship: “I will come unto you”: What Did He Mean? / Wellness: How Meat, Dairy Raise BP

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Just as one person can represent an entire company, says Pastor Flemons, the Holy Spirit represents the entire Godhead. He is the Godhead’s personal Representative on Earth. It is that simple.

Beyond that “It is not essential for us to be able to define just what the Holy Spirit is. Christ tells us that the Spirit is the Comforter, ‘the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father.’ It is plainly declared regarding the Holy Spirit that, in His work of guiding men into all truth, ‘He shall not speak of Himself.’ John 15:26; 16:13. {AA 51.3}

“The nature of the Holy Spirit is a mystery. Men cannot explain it, because the Lord has not revealed it to them. Men having fanciful views may bring together passages of Scripture and put a human construction on them, but the acceptance of these views will not strengthen the church. Regarding such mysteries, which are too deep for human understanding, silence is golden.” {AA 52.1}

[For additional details, please read John 14:16-18; Desire of AgesDA 669.2; Acts of the ApostlesAA 51, 52; Counsels on HealthCH 222; and listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 301, “Nearer, Still Nearer.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that eating meat and dairy increases the load of free radicals in the body. Free radicals damage the walls of the arteries. The body responds by bandaging the arteries with cholesterol patches. This naturally produced cholesterol, together with the cholesterol from eating meat and dairy, clogs the arteries and inhibits blood flow. Therefore the blood pressure is raised.

Another way meat and dairy increases blood pressure happens because the body senses that the meat and dairy are toxic. This puts an increased risk on the body. In its effort to quickly excrete the toxins, the physical stress can cause weight loss. This kind of weight loss as a strategy, however, says Pastor Flemons, is unhealthy. The metabolism is faster, but also the heart rate will be increased. The blood vessels will constrict. Blood flow is hindered. And blood pressure is increased.
