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.

QTQT  Sis. Odessa’s medicine for her cracked kneecap is very strong, and she asked for an alternative for the extreme pain. Pastor responded with these herbs that address inflammation and pain: extract of valerian, white willow bark, and Jamaican dogwood. He also mentioned a couple of products likely to be found in a health food store: extra strength curcumin and hemp oil. He stressed that the THC is removed from hemp oil; therefore it will not produce a marijuana high. Also juicing green superfoods should prove very beneficial. TOR has a tonic called Bone, Flesh and Cartilage, which may be ordered online.

Worship: Stop Lying! / Wellness: Herbs for Seizures

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Jesus said, “I am the Way, the TRUTH and the Life,” according to John 14:6. Truth is so important to God that He identifies Himself with it. “Anything other than truth is a lie” says Pastor Flemons, “even facts so stated in a way that creates a false impression.” (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says herbs that have a calming effect and reduce inflammation are the appropriate response to seizures, particularly seizures due to systemic toxicity.

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

Isaiah 1:18-19  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.

John 17:20-21  Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

For Heaven’s Sake…

Here is the process to peace when someone has offended you:

Matthew 18:15-17  Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

Stubbornness in sin is not tolerated by God and neither should be tolerated in the church. A refusal to repent of an offence or wrongdoing is satanic. That person shows by his or her stubbornly rude bearing that he or she is not a Christian and does not belong in the peaceful, loving family of God.

What if you learn that you are the offender? Whether it was intentional or not, there is a process to peace.

Matthew 5:23-25  Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

Loving peace is so critical to God that He will not accept our worship, unless we make sincere effort to be reconciled to our brethren. In fact, we must not worship without reconciliation. Like the disciples, we must learn this: “No one wins, until we all win.”

Galatians 6:10  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

 

For Health’s Sake…

Scleroderma is a condition of the skin, where the skin thickens, because collagen grows and multiplies uncontrollably. Collagen is an elastic protein in the skin. Scleroderma is not cancer, although the cells do proliferate uncontrollably like cancer cells do.

When the skin thickens enough at the joints, the person loses the ability to bend at the elbows or fingers. The hands can’t close. The facial muscles can be so affected that they are inoperative. Scleroderma can really cause a lot of pain, says Pastor Flemons.

Doctors consider it one of the thousands of idiopathic diseases and don’t really know a solution for it. Having helped a number of victims with scleroderma, Pastor Flemons says it responds very well to detoxification and cleansing, as do most autoimmune diseases. There is a toxin, an abnormality, there–some imbalance, says Pastor Flemons, which is flushed out with cleansing and juicing and water fasting. And getting the proper nutrition really helps, he says.

After seven days, you can use the natural substance DMSO, if you are in those areas where it is legal. DMSO is a byproduct of wood. It is a powerful solvent, used in hospitals for bladder inflammation and is administered by catheter. Because it is listed as a drug, a prescription is needed. However, health food stores sell it in a creamlike substance, marked not for human use.

Because it is such a powerful solvent, it must be used with great care and not with any other chemical. Because of its illegal status in some areas of the world, Times of Refreshing does not use it and cannot recommend its use in those areas. But because it is being used, TOR wants to warn that DMSO should not be applied with rubber gloves or over stockings, as hosiery and rubber gloves can contain chemicals that will be absorbed into the bloodstream.

What TOR does recommend are herbs, such as valerian, white willow bark for cleansing and Jamaican dogwood for pain.
