Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The almond ornaments in the candlestick represent God’s workers. “The Hebrew word for almond means to hasten.” They are an emblem of Christ who is “‘the resurrection and the life,’ John 11:25, and also of the new life that will come to all who witness for Him.” They “must be weighted with eternal interest,” says Pastor Flemons.
“The word for almond also means wakeful. . . [and] beautifully illustrates the work of Christ for us: ‘ He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.’ Ps. 121:4. . . .
“The thought of zeal is also in the root of the word almond–to be zealous; to watch eagerly as a leopard; to be intent upon something; to be awake and vigilant. Jer. 5:6. The seven lamps which were before the throne were ‘lamps of fire’–Rev. 4:5, His church which the Holy Spirit fire with zeal.”
[For additional details, please read John 11:25; Jeremiah 1:11, 12; 1 Samuel 21:8; Psalm 121:4; Revelation 4:5; and “Almond Ornaments” in The Path to the Throne of God: The Sanctuary, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 138, 139 original; PTG 191 new edition; PTG 105, 106 online) Also please listen to the recording and hear Pastor Flemons sing Hymn 365, “O Zion, Haste.”]
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Moderation is key. Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that a low carb-high protein diet as well as a high carb diet of highly refined foods can kill you. What is best is a whole-food, total plant-based diet. It is the plan God gave to maintain health. The Bible tells us so. Finally “science is catching up with God’s plan,” says Pastor Flemons, as he proceeded to share the cnbc.com article that formed the basis of the health segment.
According to the article, this research has been called “‘the most comprehensive study of carbohydrate intake’ ever.” It included 432,000 people in more than 20 countries. Researchers found that people who “replaced carbohydrates with protein and fat from animals had a higher risk of early death compared to those who replaced carbohydrates with plant-based foods.”
