Worship: You Were God’s Enemy? / Wellness: Save Up! Two Appliances Worth It

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  We need an in-depth understanding of mercy, says Pastor Flemons. Had Lucifer really understood the mercy of God, he would have not sinned as he did. Prior to Lucifer’s sin, mercy had never before been extended. It had never before been needed, “for this quality of love can be exercised only toward enemies and sinners.” (PTG) Lucifer’s pride did not allow him to accept it. Had he accepted it he would have been fully restored.

Restoration, even exaltation and glorification, is the end result of God’s mercy. God’s mercy grants pardon for past sins as though they never were. That is what the sacrifice of Jesus did for everyone who is willing to believe and receive. Through Jesus’ death, we are reconciled to God. He offers to every believer the power of grace to live a sinless life. Beyond that, as we are willing, we are exalted–even to His throne. For Christ has promised, “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Revelation 3:21). From enemies of God to sharing God’s throne: that is more than restoration. That is glorification.

PTG 129 online.) Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons and hear him sing Hymn 316, “Live Out Thy Life Within Me.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that “for your own health,” there are two appliances worth saving your money to purchase: a juicer and a blender. Not just any will do, however. Pastor Flemons specifically advises purchasing the Green Star 5100 juicer, which retails upwards from about $500, and the Vita Mix blender, retailing from $300 and upward.

The Green Star 5100 is a twin-gear juicer that provides greater efficiency than regular juicers. It does a masterful job on leafy green vegetables, he says. It produces greater juice from them and leaves the pulp drier. The juice itself will remain potent longer than on average. Although there are some plastic parts, says Pastor Flemons, the part that does the crushing is stainless steel.

The Vita Mix blender is very powerful and versatile. It is not hurt by the frozen ingredients of your smoothie, for example. Its powerful blending will eventually warm the temperature of raw ingredients with a little water and seasonings to produce a soup.

They can help you save your life and you can help others too. Regardless, it is better to have a juicer and blender at whatever rate you can afford than none at all. But as soon as possible, take this advice!

1 Corinthians 2:13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. (Also read the devotional book, Ye Shall Receive Power, YRP 308.)

Isaiah 50:7  For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. (Also read Homeward BoundHB 361.3.)

Worship: Feet Washing / Wellness: Enjoy Nature Naturally, Without Nerve Gas

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Feet washing is called the ordinance of humility. The ordinance is a call to be humble, like Christ. It was and is practiced in conjunction with communion, a service in which baptism vows are renewed. In Scripture, feet washing preceded communion. It helps us humble ourselves in order for Jesus to work within us, says Pastor Flemons, who then sang “Live Out Thy Life Within Me.” And as Pastor Flemons said, “If we don’t humble ourselves, God will.” He then discussed in detail from Bible texts and just plain common sense that the wine used for communion was and is to be the fresh juice of the grape. It was not and should not be fermented or alcoholic. It represents the pure blood of Jesus.

[For further details, read “The Laver and Feet Washing” in The Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck, PTG 60, 61 (pp 89, 90 new edition) (PTG online 44).]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says fully covering a clean body with lightweight material is basic for enjoying the great outdoors. Insects are attracted to unclean bodies that also reek from a diet of animal flesh and excess sugar. Spraying certain essential oils onto the clothing or hat provides greater defense against an onslaught of insects. Insects are repelled by tea tree oil and other oils, like rosemary, eucalyptus, cedar wood, citronella, and lemon. Pennyroyal, however, is the favorite insect repellant of Pastor Flemons.

The active agent in most common insect repellants, familiarly known as DEET, is essentially a nerve gas. “Research on deet showed that it functions the same way as deadly nerve gases and pesticides, by attacking the nervous system of both insects and mammals.” Deet, this neurotoxin that kills insects by attacking the nervous system, is claimed to be harmless to humans. Yet, it is recommended that only the least amount necessary be used. That likely means that the insecticide really is deadly to humans, according to a health.news article that provided the basis for this wellness segment. The article also reports, “Previous studies have implicated deet in causing seizures in children, but the current study is the first to uncover how the chemical acts directly on the nervous system.”

Sharing Time  Cautions for natural herbs (including pennyroyal) versus pharmaceuticals were discussed, as well as marketing tricks to be aware of when viewing commercials, while side effects are being listed. The herb comfrey: Why the warning against its use? Is it actually safe for internal use? A question regarding David’s treatment of Johnathan’s son, Mephibosheth, was clarified, as stated in 2 Samuel 21:7-9.

Special Prayer for call-in listener 9307, marriages and engagements, and Pastor Rue, who has been suffering with fatigue and a fever for no known reason.

Remember to continue praying for the entire TOR broadcast family, that GOD will be free to bless us in the way that HE really wants to in 2018. Thank you.

Hebrews 1:8, 9  But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Philippians 2:5  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. (Also read DA 330.)
