Worship: Not to Destroy, But to Fulfill / Wellness: How to Get Rid of Inflammation

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Jesus came to keep the law of God, not to destroy it. In fact, everything that Jesus did in His “life, death and resurrection” showed His obligation to keep God’s Ten Commandments. As man’s Example, Jesus showed that mankind should honor God in the same way. Even much more should sinful man realize his need to keep and not ignore the law of God. However, Pastor Flemons says,”We can only keep God’s law as we have faith in the blood and the power that Christ freely gives.” This, including a biblical study of the term fulfill, is the theme of the first chapter in the book, How Christ Fulfilled the Law, by Pastor Shelem Flemons, which he read in the morning’s devotional.

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says inflammation is the body’s amazing “immune response to toxic buildup” and “is involved in a lot of different diseases, cancer included.” (Read more below.)

Hebrews 13:20-21  Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our LORD Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Words of Encouragement

Psalm 149:6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand.

Hosea 10:12  Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“Christ’s ministers are the spiritual guardians of the people entrusted to their care. Their work has been likened to that of watchmen. In ancient times sentinels were often stationed on the walls of cities, where, from points of vantage, they could overlook important posts to be guarded, and give warning of the approach of an enemy. Upon their faithfulness depended the safety of all within. At stated intervals they were required to call to one another, to make sure that all were awake and that no harm had befallen any. The cry of good cheer or of warning was borne from one to another, each repeating the call till it echoed round the city. AA 360.3

“To every minister the Lord declares: ‘O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at My mouth, and warn them from Me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it, . . . thou hast delivered thy soul.’ Ezekiel 33:7-9. AA 360.4

“The words of the prophet declare the solemn responsibility of those who are appointed as guardians of the church of God, stewards of the mysteries of God. They are to stand as watchmen on the walls of Zion, to sound the note of alarm at the approach of the enemy. Souls are in danger of falling under temptation, and they will perish unless God’s ministers are faithful to their trust. If for any reason their spiritual senses become so benumbed that they are unable to discern danger, and through their failure to give warning the people perish, God will require at their hands the blood of those who are lost. AA 361.1

“It is the privilege of the watchmen on the walls of Zion to live so near to God, and to be susceptible to the impressions of His Spirit, that He can work through them to tell men and women of their peril and point them to the place of safety. Faithfully are they to warn them of the sure result of transgression, and faithfully are they to safeguard the interests of the church. At no time may they relax their vigilance. Theirs is a work requiring the exercise of every faculty of the being. In trumpet tones their voices are to be lifted, and never are they to sound one wavering, uncertain note. Not for wages are they to labor, but because they cannot do otherwise, because they realize that there is a woe upon them if they fail to preach the gospel. Chosen of God, sealed with the blood of consecration, they are to rescue men and women from impending destruction. AA 361.2

“The minister who is a co-worker with Christ will have a deep sense of the sacredness of his work and of the toil and sacrifice required to perform it successfully. He does not study his own ease or convenience. He is forgetful of self. In his search for the lost sheep he does not realize that he himself is weary, cold, and hungry. He has but one object in view–the saving of the lost.” AA 362.1

(This study is based on the chapter 34, “A Consecrated Ministry” in The Acts of the Apostles (AA), by Ellen G. White.)

For Health’s Sake…

Oil of oregano. It is an antibiotic and antiviral herb that can be taken twice a day until the sore throat is relieved. Because it is so strong, caution must be exercised when taking it. Begin with a teaspoon of coconut oil. Drop 2 to 3 drops of the oil of oregano. Then drop it as far back into the mouth without touching your very sensitive lips.

Charcoal gargle. Begin with 3 to 4 ounces of water in a glass. Stir in maybe a teaspoon of activated charcoal, and gargle.

Rocket fuel. This antibacterial and antiviral remedy is excellent for sore throats. Just follow the directions as posted on this site. It has the taste of ginger ale.

Hydrotherapy. With ice cold water, wet and wring out a sock. Wrap it around the neck. Then wrap plastic (like saran wrap) around the neck over the wet sock. Over that, wrap a dry wool sock or towel. Sleep with the wrap at least 8 hours.

Additionally, you should avoid dairy and animal products and sugar.

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.)

Luke 21:17-18  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

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.

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.
