Worship: The Seven Churches, Conclusion 1 / Wellness: Overcoming Fibroids

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The messages to all seven churches named in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the final book in the Bible, hold special relevance to Christians today. They provide principles to live by and warnings to be obeyed. Pastor Flemons shared a few.

We learn from the message to the church at Ephesus that we must return to our first love. We must allow the truth to fully change our lives through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is by the Holy Spirit that the love of God is shed abroad in our lives. Love in action is how people know that we belong to God.

The message to the church at Smyrna teaches us to be willing to endure persecution, like Jesus. We should learn the power of silence, rather than retaliate, rather than defend ourselves. We must learn to endure hardness. Like Joseph, a good soldier, we must not complain, says Pastor Flemons. We must trust that God in His time will lift us up to where we need to be to honor Him best, just as He did with Joseph.

The message to the church in Pergamos teaches that we must be vigilant in not allowing any entrance to creeping compromise. We must focus on being obedient. “If God says something, let’s do it,” says Pastor Flemons. We should believe it and then do it. For God will both work to will and to do of His good pleasure within us, if we allow Him.

The message to the church at Thyatira teaches us that we should “keep the Bible above the visible church and the demands of conscience above the state.” The teachings of the Bible must reign above tradition. Truth must reign above everything. Otherwise, we will end up teaching for doctrine the commandments of man. This kind of worship, said Jesus, is vain. (Read Matthew 15:9.)

[For additional details, please read Romans 5:5; Galatians 5:22, 23John 13:35; 1 John 4:19; 2 Timothy 2:3; 1 Peter 5:8; and listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 191, “Love Divine.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that you can overcome fibroids.

Fibroids are really problematic non-cancerous growths in the area of the uterine. They are a collection of toxins in the muscle tissues that can cause heavy bleeding and severe cramping. They can grow to the point where a woman looks as though she’s pregnant, says Pastor Flemons, director of Times of Refreshing Wellness Ministry.

Fibroids are the result of a buildup of too much estrogen and a collection of too many toxins in the body, he says. The excess estrogen can be from distress in the life and from eating animal products, such as meat and dairy and eggs.

He told of the many successful experiences women have had in overcoming fibroids through adhering to the ministry’s REFRESHING way program. Essentially, he says that it begins with a juicing regimen to flush out toxins from the body. Green vegetables with the least amount of estrogen is best. Therefore, carrots are avoided in the juicing program. In the raw foods diet, soy and carrots are temporarily avoided. Both, he says, are sources of plant estrogen.

Worship: God’s Protection Over His People / Wellness: Meals Over Pills for Allergies

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The sanctuary’s floor was the bare ground. For no mention was ever made of a floor in the portable sanctuary built by Moses. Nevertheless, instead of assuming that the floor became muddy on rainy days, we must remember the miracle of God’s leading over the forty years. “Each time Israel camped, the location for the sanctuary was selected by Christ Himself in the pillar of cloud, and that spot was holy ground, divinely protected. The cloud protected not only the sanctuary but ‘as a canopy’ it extended ‘above the host,’ by day sheltering them from the heat, and at night ‘illuminating their encampment.'” (PP282) At night it was a pillar of fire. (See Numbers 9:15,16.) Every true Christian today may have that “same constant assurance of the presence, protection, and guidance of Him, who. . .led Israel all the way to the promised Land.”

Also listen to the recording and hear Pastor Flemons sing Hymn 537 “He Leadeth Me.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that any habit that hinders digestion hinders the digestion of protein. Undigested protein is treated as poison, like snake venom. It is foreign protein. The response of the immune system heightens histamine levels, causing vasodilation. When the histamine concentrates in certain areas of the body, symptoms of allergies erupt. Eyes become bloodshot. Sinuses become engorged and hypersensitive. The skin produce hives. The head hurts, even to migraine intensity. Fasting for a period is best. It rids the body of histamine and will even allow you to eat foods once allergic to you.

Zephaniah 3:15  The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.

Micah 7:7-8  Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“You can do absolutely nothing!” says Pastor Flemons. You’ve gotten too close. You are completely helpless now. Only God can help you. That’s why God promised to do something about it.

Isaiah 59:19 (last part)  When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

The problem is often that we were not vigilant enough during the quiet times of relative safety. We are warned to remain sober and watchful, because our enemy, Satan, is as a roaring lion, roaming about seeking to “devour” whoever is vulnerable (1 Peter 5:8). Too often, would-be victims have wandered away from safety and have exposed themselves to temptations that could suddenly overwhelm them.

The thing to remember about Noah’s ark is that those who survived the worldwide flood were already in the ark when it was dry–before the first drop of rain ever descended. This graphic description of the flood, as told in the book Patriarchs and Prophets, is a startling example of the paralyzing fear of impending doom.

“As the violence of the storm increased, trees, buildings, rocks, and earth were hurled in every direction. The terror of man and beast was beyond description. Above the roar of the tempest was heard the wailing of a people that had despised the authority of God. Satan himself, who was compelled to remain in the midst of the warring elements, feared for his own existence. He had delighted to control so powerful a race, and desired them to live to practice their abominations and continue their rebellion against the Ruler of heaven. He now uttered imprecations against God, charging Him with injustice and cruelty. Many of the people, like Satan, blasphemed God, and had they been able, they would have torn Him from the throne of power. Others were frantic with fear, stretching their hands toward the ark and pleading for admittance. But their entreaties were in vain. Conscience was at last aroused to know that there is a God who ruleth in the heavens.” (PP 99.3) 

When we are in the flood like that, says Pastor Flemons, “There is nothing humanly possible that could be done. There is no way to survive.” In such times, “we don’t have to try to do anything.”

The time to be saved is now–while there is still an opportunity.

(“The Flood,” a chapter in Ellen G. White’s Patriarchs and Prophets, may be accessed and read at this link: http://www.whiteestate.org/books/pp/pp7.html.)

 

For Health’s Sake…

Another barrier against disease is trusting God, rather than man. Blind trust in man, regardless of their expertise, can be deadly. There are too many examples of blind trust that resulted in death.

Unfortunately, there is a sad medical history of scientific research, involving man-made diseases. The author of Emerging Viruses and Vaccinations, Dr. Leonard Horowitz, a Harvard graduate, exposed the fact that HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) was made in a laboratory and shipped to Africa. Zambians, among many others, have testified of daily deaths from HIV. Interestingly, HIV destroys the immune system, the body’s central defense system. Once the immune system is destroyed, the body has no defense against any disease.

Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness and naturopathy, says look for those who are following God’s plan before you venture to have any kind of confidence in doctors, whether they be MDs, PhDs or NDs. Remember the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. It’s actual name was “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male.” The research was based on the campus of Tuskegee University. The men, residents of Macon County, Alabama, were never told “of the debilitating and the life-threatening consequences” of the so-called treatments, nor “the impact on their wives, girlfriends, and children they may have conceived once involved in the research.” They weren’t even offered penicillin or the option to quit the study. (Visit this link for more details: http://www.tuskegee.edu/about_us/centers_of_excellence/bioethics_center/about_the_usphs_syphilis_study.aspx.)

Similarly, the White Coat Study, referred to by Pastor Flemons, involved men who trusted the government. This time, it was the military: The US Army. Officially known as Operation White Coat, the top secret study involved “a group of American soldiers — conscientious objectors — who volunteered to expose themselves to deadly viruses and bacteria, rather than go to war.” Although a 2003 PBS episode features glowing remarks from participants who say they would do it again, that is not the case with at least one of those interviewed for the PBS special and the one bitter participant Pastor Flemons personally knew. (For more details, visit this link: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/religionandethics/2003/10/24/october-24-2003-operation-whitecoat/15055/.)

These are the last days, and we have been warned about these times, says Pastor Flemons:

2 Timothy 3:1 -5

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
