Worship: An Awe-Inspiring Procession / Wellness: Fasting and the Fountain of Youth

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  When all the particulars of the tabernacle were finished, each was carried in a most solemn and awesome procession to Moses for his inspection. Pastor Flemons read highlights, which in part read like this:

“Bezaleel of the tribe of Judah with his assistants in gold and silver and brass, in cutting of stones, and in carving of timber, brought their work which they had faithfully and skillfully and accurately done. And Aholiab of the tribe of Dan with his assistants which did the engraving, the embroidering and the weaving for all the hangings, the coverings, and the priests’ garments, came with the finished products of their labors.”

The processional was furthered detailed, including “Others of Aholiab’s trusty workers bring the white linen garments of the priests and the gorgeous garments of Aaron – the white linen coat with its exquisite tessellated embroidery, the sky blue robe with its border of tinkling gold bells and bright colored pomegranates, the wonderfully gold embroidered ephod with its shoulder clasps of engraved onyx stones and its elaborately embroidered girdle. Another carries the breastplate, its twelve precious stones glistening like diamonds and magnifying the names of the twelve tribes engraved upon it, EW 251, while another carries the holy crown with its plate of pure gold bearing the inscription, “HOLINESS TO THE LORD.”

When Jesus comes again, it is going to be a mighty glorious procession. Even greater than the second coming of Christ, says Pastor Flemons, is the time when every knee shall bow before the throne of God and confess that God is righteous and just.

[For additional details, please read Isaiah 45:23Romans 14:10, 11; and “An Awe-Inspiring Procession” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 196, 197 original. PTG 266, 267 latest edition. PTG 148, 149 online.)  Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 246, “Worthy, Worthy Is the Lamb.”]  

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, discussed the Bible text Matthew 17:21, which quotes Jesus advising His disciples to fast and pray for extra power to heal.

It nicely segued to the health topic of fasting to preserve youth. Fasting or a calorie reduction has been found to preserve life and youthful-looking skin. Published on health.news, the article that Pastor Flemons read details about the link between fasting and the fountain of youth. It also revealed that the effects of smoking and drinking include early aging.

The article states, “The longevity effect of calorie reduction was first discovered more than 80 years ago in studies on mice.” Still it states that “people are often unaware of the ‘amazing fact’ that wrinkles can be prevented.”

Words of Encouragement

Job 4:8  They that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 10.)

John 17:23  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. (Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 37.)

Worship: The Wiles of the Devil / Wellness: Why Eat an Apple a Day

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Wiles are tricks used to fool, ensnare or entice. Make no mistake about it. Satan does not play fair. Every temptation that he uses against you will be in one of three categories: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.

Generally speaking, lust is a perversion of love, says Pastor Flemons. Specifically, the lust of the flesh is the perversion of appetite, which includes passion, which consequently, includes sex and even anger, as in road rage. It was eating from the wrong menu that plunged Adam and Eve and soon afterward the world into generations of sin.

The lust of the eyes is a perversion of your understanding as it relates to the church, says Pastor Flemons. For example, you may have accepted too many offices in the church. As a result, your church work has you so involved that it leaves no time for you to spend alone with God.

Jesus was a medical missionary and responded to the needs of the people; and then He bade them follow Him. But Satan has tricked so many in believing that the church or organization is the ark of safety, especially if you have a prominent position in the church. This is one the greatest deceptions of Satan.

However, if Satan cannot get you into church politics, he uses the pride of life: money, gold. You are tempted to spend all of your energies, talents and time to achieve some worldly standard of success. In the end, you learn that it was only another wile of the devil. And you are destitute of spiritual prosperity and eternity itself.

Therefore, if you succumb to temptations of the flesh, the eyes or the pride of life, you are not doing the will of God, says Pastor Flemons. This is why it is essential to put on the whole armor of Christ.

[For additional details, please read Ephesians 6:10; Matthew 4:1-11; 1 John 2:15-17; Ephesians 1:18; Luke 6:46-48; and Chapter 12, “The Temptation,” Desire of Ages, by Ellen G. White. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 88, “I Sing the Mighty Power of God.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that we all need to eat more whole foods, especially apples. Apples are exceptionally nutritious and have many research-backed benefits. Apples are linked to a lowered risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, death from cancer, and asthma. Apples are great for increasing bone health, especially bone density and strength. They protect the stomach against NSAIDS, which injure the lining of the stomach. They protect your brain against Alzheimer’s disease and are considered a great food to include in any weight loss program. Besides all these, apples promote the good gut bacteria, known as probiotics.

The daily recommendation is to have two cups of fruit per day. One apple of only about 3 inches in diameter is equivalent to 1.5 cups of fruit. Now that is pretty impressive. But to get the most benefit from the apple, leave the skin on and enjoy it.
