Words of Encouragement

Isaiah 51:3  For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

Isaiah 51:22, 23  Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: but I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.

 

 

Worship: Heralds of the Morning / Wellness: Laziness Will Kill You

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake “One of the most solemn and yet most glorious truths revealed in the Bible is . . . Christ second coming to complete the great work of redemption. . . . The doctrine of the second advent is the very key-note of the sacred Scriptures. . .” GC 299.1 (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says people should “stop sitting and clicking.” Being “a couch potato” will sooner or later bring about early death. Exercise strengthens the heart and helps build healthy blood. In fact, all of the channels of elimination need exercise to work more efficiently and keep the body strong and healthy. But Pastor Flemons advised against laziness in other ways. (Read more below)

Words of Encouragement

Isaiah 65:24  And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Proverbs 2:3-5  Yes, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“Prophecy [however] not only foretells the manner and object of Christ’s coming, but presents tokens by which men are to know when it is near. Said Jesus: ‘There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars.’ Luke 21:25. ‘The sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.’ Mark 13:24-26. The revelator thus describes the first of the signs to precede the second advent: ‘There was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.’ Revelation 6:12{GC 304.1}

“These signs were witnessed before the opening of the nineteenth century. In fulfillment of this prophecy there occurred, in the year 1755, the most terrible earthquake that has ever been recorded. Though commonly known as the earthquake of Lisbon, it extended to the greater part of Europe, Africa, and America. It was felt in Greenland, in the West Indies, in the island of Madeira, in Norway and Sweden, Great Britain and Ireland. It pervaded an extent of not less than four million square miles. In Africa the shock was almost as severe as in Europe. A great part of Algiers was destroyed; and a short distance from Morocco, a village containing eight or ten thousand inhabitants was swallowed up. A vast wave swept over the coast of Spain and Africa engulfing cities and causing great destruction. {GC 304.2}

“At Lisbon ‘a sound of thunder was heard underground, and immediately afterwards a violent shock threw down the greater part of that city. In the course of about six minutes sixty thousand persons perished. . . . ‘ {GC 305.1

“Twenty-five years later appeared the next sign mentioned in the prophecy,—the darkening of the sun and moon. What rendered this more striking was the fact that the time of its fulfillment had been definitely pointed out. In the Saviour’s conversation with his disciples upon Olivet, after describing the long period of trial for the church—the 1260 years of papal persecution, concerning which he had promised that the tribulation should be shortened—he thus mentioned certain events to precede his coming, and fixed the time when the first of these should be witnessed: ‘In those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light.’ [Mark 13:24.] The 1260 days, or years, terminated in 1798. A quarter of a century earlier, persecution had almost wholly ceased. Between these two dates, according to the words of Christ, the sun was to be darkened. On the 19th of May, 1780, this prophecy was fulfilled. {GC88 305.3}

“Twenty-five years later appeared the next sign mentioned in the prophecy—the darkening of the sun and moon. What rendered this more striking was the fact that the time of its fulfillment had been definitely pointed out. In the Saviour’s conversation with His disciples upon Olivet, after describing the long period of trial for the church,—the 1260 years of papal persecution, concerning which He had promised that the tribulation should be shortened,—He thus mentioned certain events to precede His coming, and fixed the time when the first of these should be witnessed: “In those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light.” Mark 13:24. The 1260 days, or years, terminated in 1798. A quarter of a century earlier, persecution had almost wholly ceased. Following this persecution, according to the words of Christ, the sun was to be darkened. On the 19th of May, 1780, this prophecy was fulfilled. {GC 306.1}

“Almost, if not altogether alone, as the most mysterious and as yet unexplained phenomenon of its kind, … stands the dark day of May 19, 1780,—a most unaccountable darkening of the whole visible heavens and atmosphere in New England.”—R. M. Devens, Our First Century, page 89. {GC 306.2}

“The extent of this darkness was extraordinary. It was observed as far east as Falmouth. To the westward it reached to the farthest part of Connecticut, and to Albany. To the southward, it was observed along the seacoasts; and to the north as far as the American settlements extend.”—William Gordon, History of the Rise, Progress, and Establishment of the Independence of the U.S.A., vol. 3, p. 57. {GC 307.3}

“The intense darkness of the day was succeeded, an hour or two before evening, by a partially clear sky, and the sun appeared, though it was still obscured by the black, heavy mist. ‘After sundown, the clouds came again overhead, and it grew dark very fast.’ . . . Though at nine o’clock that night the moon rose to the full, ‘it had not the least effect to dispel the deathlike shadows.’ After midnight the darkness disappeared, and the moon, when first visible, had the appearance of blood. {GC 307.4}

“May 19, 1780, stands in history as ‘The Dark Day.’ Since the time of Moses no period of darkness of equal density, extent, and duration, has ever been recorded. The description of this event, as given by eyewitnesses, is but an echo of the words of the Lord, recorded by the prophet Joel, twenty-five hundred years previous to their fulfillment: ‘The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.’ Joel 2:31.” {GC 308.1}

For Health’s Sake…

It takes planning, he says, to ensure that you have a colorful plate at mealtimes, which means that you are likely getting more of the nutrients your body requires for good health. It takes planning to ensure that you are getting out in the fresh air and getting enough rest and water (H2O) and sunlight daily. You have to be intentional to use self-control, rely on God, never give up, and give to others to be healthy. You cannot be lazy and live.

Worship: Called to Be Chosen / Wellness: Cures for Your “-itis”

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  “Many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14). What happened between so many being called and so few being chosen? Something went wrong. Pastor Flemons explains. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Any “itis” is inflammation, says Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness. Wherever there is inflammation, there is swelling and heat and pain. But there are also simple cures. (Read more below.)

For Heaven’s Sake…

“Once we are called,” he says, “there is a great work to be done to crucify self so that we can fulfill the mission of the calling. God is going to work with us to prepare us for heaven.” What makes the difference is this: “Are we going to submit to that preparation, or are we going to reject that preparation?”

Inspired commentary adds this:

“Nothing is more essential to communion with God than the most profound humility. ‘I dwell,’ says the High and Holy One, ‘with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit.’ While you are so eagerly striving to be first, remember that you will be last in the favor of God if you fail to cherish a meek and lowly spirit. Pride of heart will cause many to fail where they might have made a success. ‘Before honor is humility,’ and ‘the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.’ ‘When Ephraim spake trembling, he exalted himself in Israel; but when he offended in Baal, he died.’ ‘Many are called, but few are chosen.’ Many hear the invitation of mercy, are tested and proved; but few are sealed with the seal of the living God. Few will humble themselves as a little child, that they may enter the kingdom of heaven.”5T 50.2 (Ellen G. White, Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 50.2)

“There will be no moral changes when Jesus comes,” says Pastor Flemons. We are now daily being changed into whomever we will be when Jesus comes. This is our probation. He shows us ourselves and our need for change. It is up to us to submit to be changed and sealed before Jesus comes.

Revelation 22:11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

At that time He will say, “It is done” (Revelation 21:6). He will have finished the work of reviewing all the names of those who are called. He will have determined the chosen–those who can comfortably live with Him in His everlasting kingdom, where neither sin nor affliction will rise a second time. (Read Nahum 1:9.)

 

For Health’s Sake…

God has provided a storehouse of help for ailing individuals. In that storehouse are cures for all types of “-itises.” Pastor Flemons listed a few: proteolytic enzymes, like bromelain, papain and serapeptase; turmeric; MSM; and colloidal silver. TOR has combined a few of these into one tonic for anti-inflammatory conditions available at this link: http://torwm.org/product/anti-inflammation-tonic-gold-standard/.

Bromelain and papain are powerful anti-inflammatory properties found in pineapple and papaya, respectively. Turmeric has properties similar to golden seal, a powerful anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral herb. Turmeric is less expensive, but it’s just as powerful and has a milder and more pleasing flavor. Also mild and safe to use for arthritic suffers is MSM. But one of the world’s best anti-inflammatory options is colloidal silver, says Pastor Flemons. It is an antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral and safe option; but it can be very expensive. Contact TOR directly for affordable ways to acquire it.
