Worship: The Ark of Safety / Wellness: Herbs for Epileptic Seizures

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The Ark of the Covenant, was the place of safekeeping, God’s treasure chest, bearing the Ten Commandments. Like Noah’s ark and the ark of baby Moses, it was an ark of safety. It was kept in the Most Holy Place of the sanctuary in a chest made with specific orders, which included shittim wood overlaid with pure gold, inside and out. Its lid was called “the mercy seat, a symbol of the seat, or throne,” of God. “This was the safest place in all the universe, and shows how supremely sacred Heaven regards the law of God, His fundamental law, the constitution of His universal government,” “His special treasure.”

Shittim wood is the thorny acacia of the Jordan valley and Sinai desert wilderness. This is the same wood in which “‘appeared the Angel of the covenant to Moses in the burning bush at Horeb, to bless man, and out of this wood was formed the ark of the covenant, the typical source of his blessing.’ And the source of our blessing and our eternal safety is in obedience to the law that was enclosed within it.” PTG

As it was in the days of Noah, so is it now. There were only two classes of people: the righteous and the wicked. There was only one ark of safety. The obedient went into it and was saved. The ark of safety is where those obedient to the unadulterated Law of God can freely exist. It is not an organization or a physical building. The church is an ark of safety only as God’s people are safe in obeying the Law of God, says Pastor Flemons. There is no safety in disobedience, regardless of the place or organization or church.

[For additional details, please read Exodus 34:28; Hebrews 9:24; Exodus 25:9-18; as well as “The Ark of the Covenant,” “An Ark, a Place of Safety,” and “The Ark, God’s ‘Treasure Chest'” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 163 original. PTG 219 new edition. PTG 124 online.) Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons and hear him sing “The Savior Is Waiting.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that epileptic seizures can be helped naturally by using herbs that are calming. The best herb is “a wonderful tranquilizer” that he says is now an endangered species; but it can be purchased online at WarnerHerbs.com. That herb is called Lady’s Slipper. Widely used by Native Americans as a natural tranquilizer and nerve tonic, Lady’s Slipper is a member of the orchid family, which has become rare to spot in the wild anymore. Pastor Flemons advises purchasing the liquid extract.

TOR has two calming formulas that are excellent not only for epilepsy but also for depression and anxiety, as they keep the seratonin and GABA levels normal in the brain. PainX-StressY-SleepZzzz comes as both a tea and a tonic, containing Valerian Root, White Willow Bark, Peach Leaves, Feverfew, Scullcap, and SteviaTOR’s Happiness Tea / Tonic contains St John’s Wort, Kava Kava, Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, and Stevia.

Hemp oil is great for traumatic seizures, he says. And it does not contain THC, the mind-altering element that should be avoided. Hemp oil helps calm the firing of nerves.

Decreasing sodium consumption also helps lessen the firing of nerves, says Pastor Flemons. You can decrease sodium consumption by simply adopting a total plant-based diet, avoiding all animal products, and by drinking lots of water. In fact, he recommends following the REFRESHING Way lifestyle that embeds all of the eight laws of health, plus two.  Rely on God. Eat healthy. Fresh air. Rest. Exercise. Self-control. H2O (drink water). In the sun. Never give up. Give to others.

“You can overcome epilepsy the REFRESHING Way,” says Pastor Flemons.

Words of Encouragement

Matthew 5:43-45  Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that cures you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Luke 11:13  If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Words of Encouragement

Hebrews 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2 Chronicles 20:20 (last part)  Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“In his epistle to the Romans, Paul set forth the great principles of the gospel. He stated his position on the questions which were agitating the Jewish and the Gentile churches, and showed that the hopes and promises which had once belonged especially to the Jews were now offered to the Gentiles also. AA 373.2

“With great clearness and power the apostle presented the doctrine of justification by faith in Christ. He hoped that other churches also might be helped by the instruction sent to the Christians at Rome; but how dimly could he foresee the far-reaching influence of his words! Through all the ages the great truth of justification by faith has stood as a mighty beacon to guide repentant sinners into the way of life. It was this light that scattered the darkness which enveloped Luther’s mind and revealed to him the power of the blood of Christ to cleanse from sin. The same light has guided thousands of sin-burdened souls to the true Source of pardon and peace. For the epistle to the church at Rome, every Christian has reason to thank God. AA 373.3

“In this letter Paul gave free expression to his burden in behalf of the Jews. Ever since his conversion, he had longed to help his Jewish brethren to gain a clear understanding of the gospel message. ‘My heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is,’ he declared, ‘that they might be saved.’ AA 374.1

“It was no ordinary desire that the apostle felt. Constantly he was petitioning God to work in behalf of the Israelites who had failed to recognize Jesus of Nazareth as the promised Messiah. ‘I say the truth in Christ,’ he assured the believers at Rome, ‘my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, that I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever.’ AA 374.2

“The Jews were God’s chosen people, through whom He had purposed to bless the entire race. From among them God had raised up many prophets. These had foretold the advent of a Redeemer who was to be rejected and slain by those who should have been the first to recognize Him as the Promised One. AA 374.3

“The prophet Isaiah, looking down through the centuries and witnessing the rejection of prophet after prophet and finally of the Son of God, was inspired to write concerning the acceptance of the Redeemer by those who had never before been numbered among the children of Israel. Referring to this prophecy, Paul declares: ‘Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought Me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after Me. But to Israel He saith, All day long I have stretched forth My hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.’ AA 375.1

“Even though Israel rejected His Son, God did not reject them. Listen to Paul as he continues the argument: ‘I say then, Hath God cast away His people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew. Wot ye not what the Scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, Lord, they have killed Thy prophets, and digged down Thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.'” AA 375.2

(This study is based on the Epistle to the Romans and chapter 35, “Salvation to the Jews” in The Acts of the Apostles (AA), by Ellen G. White.)

For Health’s Sake…

A circuit breaker keeps a house from burning down during an overload of electrical current. In the same way, epileptic seizures keep the brain from frying. When the body’s nervous system is overloaded electrically, God designed epileptic seizures to keep the brain safe.

Seizures are a warning that there is too much sodium in the body, as sodium is a conductor of electricity. Dilantin is commonly prescribed to prevent epileptic seizures. “Dilantin simply removes sodium from the brain,” says Pastor Flemons. According to Drugs.com, Dilantin has common side effects that may include dizziness, confusion, nervousness, slurred speech, a rash, abnormal eye movement, headache and/or insomnia. But it is also associated with painful mouth sores and sores around the eyes, jaundice, severe weakness, severe muscle pain, swollen glands, swollen face, swollen tongue, and the list goes on.

There is an effective way to prevent seizures without side effects. We call it the REFRESHING Way. First, remove from your diet meat and dairy, which have a high concentration of sodium. That is why perspiration is salty. Then reduce stressors. Eliminate or at least modify those situations in your life that stress you out. Finally, take herbs that are known relaxers. These herbs include lady’s slipper (which is an orchid), lobelia, chamomile, valerian, and peppermint.

Worship: The Carnal Mind / Wellness: Epilepsy

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  You may have heard it said, “By beholding we become changed.” It is true. That statement is likely based on the Bible verse found in 2 Corinthians 3:18, which essentially says if we behold God’s glory, we will be changed into that same image by the power of the Holy Spirit. The children’s lyric, “Oh be careful little eyes what you see,” is a warning to guard the avenues of our soul. With each stanza, a different portal to the brain is identified. This is important, because guarding the avenues of thought protects our destiny. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Epilepsy is the body’s way of redistributing electricity throughout the body, so that the electricity isn’t concentrated in the brain. Epilepsy is the body’s way of saving the brain from being fried. A seizure acts as a circuit breaker for the body, says Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness and naturopathy.

Worship: What Happens When We Die? Part 3 / Wellness: Why Use Superfoods?

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Addressing the state of the dead, Pastor Flemons focused on the Bible texts dealing with when the dead wakes up.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Why should we use superfoods? Superfoods, says Pastor Flemons, pack a lot of benefits in a little powder; build the immune system; give energy; provide calcium, potassium, vitamins and phytochemicals; have antiinflammatory properties; and regulate blood sugar. He then introduced TOR’s AAA Supertonic Superfood Gold Standard, found under the Store tab on this site.

QT/QT  Discussion with listeners revealed that stevia is a plant with a sweet flavor. It is not a sugar. A question about seizures allowed us to learn why seizures occur. Pastor Flemons noted that he has seen seizures be stopped simply by changing the diet.
