Worship: Doing Business on the Sabbath / Wellness: Better Than Hot Chocolate

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The Sabbath should be honored, says Pastor Flemons. He read through the first twenty-two verses of Nehemiah 13, and offered commentary. He showed how from the passage we can draw principles of keeping the Sabbath from a business perspective.

Unless there is a medical emergency, no buying and selling should be done during the sacred hours of the Sabbath. Preparing anything on Sabbath that is to be sold profanes the Sabbath. When you take a trip that includes the Sabbath hours, don’t eat out at a restaurant. Prepare sandwiches and foods that can keep well for your Sabbath meal. Fasting may be necessary and a good thing to do for that Sabbath.

It is a part of good Sabbath planning to purchase sufficient gas for your car prior to the Sabbath hours. Also, says Pastor Flemons, check your mail after the Sabbath hours have passed. You have no control over when the mail will be delivered, but you do control when you check it. Often in mail will be bills and other business related matters that will distract the mind from sacred thoughts.

Lawn care should have been done prior to the sacred hours, even if you pay someone else to do the work, says Pastor Flemons. If they won’t comply with your request to not do the lawn care on Sabbath, then change to the service that will comply, or do it yourself and get good exercise in the process.

Just realize that God cannot bless us once we know and still dishonor the Sabbath, says Pastor Flemons. And James 4:17 says this: “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

(For additional details, please read Nehemiah 13:1-22. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Shelem Flemons, and hear him recite Hymn 40, “The Dawn of God’s Dear Sabbath.”)

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says for about 30 years, he has been a medical missionary and always knew about the benefits of carob as a substitute for chocolate. Over the years, he has used carob in a hot drink recipe that replaces hot chocolate. He would add carob to water, soy or almond milk in a pot, heat it, while constantly whisking to get all the lumps out, and add agave to sweeten it. What he just learned is to simply put those ingredients in the VitaMix and let it run for about 5 minutes. “It was delicious!” He says it is better than hot chocolate.

He personally believes that the locusts John the Baptist ate were seed pods of the carob or locust tree. Nevertheless, he shared nine nutritional benefits of carob powder or flour, which is an alternative to cocoa powder. Carob contains virtually no fat. It contains no sodium. It is high in calcium, but contains no oxalates, which inhibit the absorption of calcium. It is high in fiber and helps relieve diarrhea.

It is high in antioxidants, especially gallic acid and flavonoids, which “reduce oxidative stress.” Gallic acid scavenges free radicals and kills cancer cells. “Flavonoids have anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antidiabetic, and neuroprotective abilities.”

Finally, it is gluten-free, caffeine-free, and tyramine-free. “According to the National Headache Foundation, foods that contain tyramine may trigger migraine headaches. . . chocolate contains tyramine,. . . Carob doesn’t contain tyramine and is considered safe to eat if you get migraines.”

(For further details, please listen to the recording and read the healthline.com article that Pastor Flemons read during the segment.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says there are other reasons for bedwetting besides drinking too much liquid too close to bedtime. Dehydration, or drinking too little water throughout the day, causes gas buildup that presses against the bladder. (Divide your child’s weight in half to learn how many ounces of water he or she should be drinking every day.) Maybe they are consuming caffeine or chocolate or dairy or meat. They all can lead to an overactive bladder. Giving your child a simple plant-based diet is best. And, if necessary, consider giving them uva ursi, which is an herbal diuretic that will strengthen the bladder. Then consider adopting  for yourself and for them the REFRESHING Way lifestyle.

Worship: The Image of Daniel 2 / Wellness: Got Tough Pain? Sprout It Out!

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The image of Daniel 2 was a dream of the king of Babylon, given by the living God. It could only be interpreted by Daniel, the prophet. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that there is nothing more nutritious than sprouts for energy and strength and general health, even pain. He has begun to eat them like potato chips: straight out of the package. His energy is clearly evident and has been noted by listeners. And the pain he had is gone! He recommends you try them out. You don’t have to eat them like potato chips. And no, they don’t taste like potato chips. But you can add them to salads for a zing of flavor. There’s all kinds of sprouts. There’s red clover sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, radish sprouts, mung bean sprouts and on and on. You can grow them yourself. “You don’t need a green thumb,” he says. And you can sprout for pennies. But you may also buy sprouting jars and follow the directions.

Please see the property Times of Refreshing is claiming in faith as our new headquarters to save lives and train lifesavers. Then please ask God how you can be blessed to help. Give here: GoFundMe.com/TORSavesLives.

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  “Don’t worry about what’s happening right now. God never gives us more than we can handle,” says Pastor Flemons. “All things will work out in the end. If it’s not worked out yet, it’s just not the end.” God is working out His will in us. And when within us His will is perfected, that will be the end. And there will be eternal peace and abundant joy. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, interviewed Joi who gave her experience with the What the Health Juice Feast Group in Indianapolis. But first he quickly reviewed an article about the health benefits of alcohol, stating that there are none. While alcohol may cause you to feel less stressful, trusting in God will do that–and safely. “There is nothing in alcohol that will ward off diabetes,” he says. Now back to the interview. (Read more below.)

Special Prayer was offered for call-in listeners: 3719, who has turned 80 years old today and Sister Joi with the What the Health Juice Feast Group in Indianapolis. Pray that their 14-day juice feast is more than successful, that they not only reach their wellness goals but that God will grant them the Holy Spirit and spiritual blessings beyond their expectations.

Also pray for Sister Audrey (coHost) who is grateful for another year of life today.
