Words of Encouragement
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the the pulling down of strong holds;) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:17-24 Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
For Heaven’s Sake…
Frogs will remain in boiling water only when the water has slowly been brought to a boil. The same is true in life. People relax in warm and comfortable environments. They won’t notice as danger quietly and gradually increases. Pay attention. “The world is slowly becoming acclimatized to the concept of Sunday legislation.” (HCFL 314) And we are the frogs.
It is important to understand that any ‘meltdown’ of the separation of church and state is a foundation block in the building of Sunday laws. At the writing of his book, Pastor Flemons gave an example of a then current news event. The Obama administration ordered “a social institution of the Catholic Church to distribute contraceptives. In response, political critics of the presidential administration” labeled “the Catholic Church as the victim of governmental tyranny and persecution. Critics offered a solution: “combine church and state to legislate in favor of Catholic policy. HCFL 317
“To the trained eye, it is easy to see the conspiracy. First of all, the Catholic Church is against religious freedom, yet they are portrayed as the persecuted. Secondly, if this order violated their consciences, they should not obey it, just as we must not obey a law that restricts worshipping on the Sabbath. Thirdly, the proposed solution is to bring church and state together to protect Catholic policy. This policy will end in persecution; yet most of the world is deceived into thinking that the Catholic Church is being attacked. HCFL 317
“Keep your eyes open and you will continue to see the meltdown of the separation of church and state. You will continue to see the Catholic Church being portrayed in a most positive light in the media by Protestants. You will see more talk of Sunday laws as the solution to the world’s problems. All the world is wondering after the beast! HCFL 318

For Health’s Sake…
A random trial of diabetic patients lost weight and reversed diabetes type 2 simply by changing the diet and lifestyle. Pastor Flemons reviewed a December 5, ScienceNews.com article published at theLancet.com. It reports that “type 2 diabetes can be reversed following an intensive weight management program.”
Adults in a randomized study maintained diabetes remission for one full year without antidiabetic and blood pressure lowering medications. The medications had been stopped at the onset of the weight management program in which an average of 22 pounds were lost. Diet and exercise made the difference, even for those who had been diabetics for a full six years.
The diet and lifestyle program of the Bible has existed since creation. Bible students know this. We call it biblical wellness. The secular world is finally catching up with the wisdom of The Word.
