Worship: Wholly Sanctified and Rewarded / Wellness: Pulmonary Fibrosis

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  All Christians living today must “take a definite forward step in Christian experience.” We must be wholly sanctified in order to be rewarded or glorified at Christ’s coming. In fact we are told, “Our whole attention is to be centered on preparation for the second coming of Christ. Toward this event the full blaze of Bible truth is focused. More now is expected of us than of those who have gone before.” (PTG)

The Apostle Paul says it this way: “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” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

The spirit of a person is “his disposition, whether good or bad,–that which lies back of and influences all his words and actions. It concerns the secret thoughts and motives, even the tone of his voice.” The wholly consecrated spirit is one that is Christlike: “‘very patient, very kind. . .knows no jealousy. . .makes no parade, gives itself no airs, is never rude, never selfish, never irritated, never resentful;. . .never glad when others go wrong. . .always slow to expose, always eager to believe the best, always hopeful, always patient.'” (PTG)

The soul of a person is his life. Man became a living soul when God breathed life into the nostrils of the man He created. “A wholly consecrated soul is a truly consecrated life, a life whose every energy is fully dedicated to God, every unholy ambition is laid aside, every plan and purpose that will not advance the kingdom of God is given up.” (PTG)

The wholly consecrated body is one that is “under obedience to clean and healthful living habits–so that every physical power will be in the best possible condition to work for God. Such a life–spirit, soul, and body,–will bring us ‘blameless’ and ‘without fault before the throne of God'” (PTG). And yes, that is a standard that is too high for human achievement. But God is able to achieve it through humanity.

When that happens, a reward is promised–not for God but for everyone who has allowed Him to work in, through and for him to be declared an overcomer, obedient to God’s law. “Whom He justified, them He also glorified” (Romans 8:30), saying, “Come ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Matthew 25:34).

[For additional details, please read 1 Corinthians 13; Psalm 119:10, 58; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Romans 12:1,2; Revelation 22:12; Revelation 2:10; Revelation 3:11; as well as all sections beginning with “Sanctified Wholly” ending with “The Reward Room” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 159, 160 original. PTG 217-219 new edition. PTG 121, 122 online.) Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons and hear him sing Hymn 308, “Wholly Thine.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, was asked to discuss pulmonary fibrosis, which he says he believes is primarily an autoimmune disease that has a 3- to 5-year survival rate. According to the MayoClinic.com article he shared, “Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for your lungs to work properly. As pulmonary fibrosis worsens, you become progressively more short of breath.” Obviously, it can be terminal, says Pastor Flemons.

Although the severity of symptoms may vary widely, typically there is shortness of breath (dyspnea), a dry cough, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, aching muscles and joints, and clubbing or widening and rounding of the tips of the fingers or toes. Symptoms can occur drastically and quickly become severe, lasting a few days to weeks. Or symptoms can develop more moderately over months and years. According to a DrAxe.com article on pulmonary fibrosis, stages of the disease may be “referred to as early, advanced or end-stage.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, lung damage leading to pulmonary fibrosis can have a multitude of causes, but most often doctors cannot pinpoint it. In such cases, it is called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Nevertheless, medical conditions, like pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis or sarcoidosis, can cause it. Drugs that damage the lungs can cause it: especially chemotherapy drugs, heart medications, some antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory medications. Anyone exposed to pollutants known to damage the lungs are more susceptible to pulmonary fibrosis: especially miners, farmers, and construction workers.

It is best to “prevent it,” say Pastor Flemons, by not breathing in dust type toxins. But to overcome it, he suggests getting rid of toxins by going on a juice feast; taking great herbs that target the health of the lungs, like fenugreek and mullein; going on a regimen of MMS through the Genesis II Church; and colloidal silver, especially with a nebulizer. Toxins must be flushed out and the lungs must be cleared, he says.

Words of Encouragement

Revelation 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. (Also read YRP 299.)

Jeremiah 50:20  In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve. (Also read COL 205.1-206.1.)
