Worship: For Heaven’s Sake Pastor Flemons discussed the dual application Revelation 12 and of Ezekiel 28:12-19. The passage in Ezekiel not only refers to the king of Tyrus but to Lucifer, or Satan before he sinned. The passage shows that Lucifer, the perfect covering cherub, allowed the wearing of jewelry to develop an attitude of pride within him.
As long as his character was perfect and reflected Christ, Lucifer could wear the precious stones. Every precious stone was his covering. His character was unchanged, until sin was found in him. It was then that the brightness of the precious stones “corrupted” his wisdom. In the end, he was cast to the ground, meaning Earth. Lucifer had to leave Heaven.
From Lucifer’s experience God shows that outward beauty can corrupt inward spirituality. Once Lucifer lost his position in Heaven, God removed ornamentation from His people. In Eden, there is never the mention of ornamentation on Adam and Eve. In Scripture, you do see that the wearing of ornamentation was considered idolatry.
Instead of outward adornment, God wants our inner beauty to draw people to Him. He wants our light to shine for Him. “Let it shine,” says Pastor Flemons.
[For additional details, please read Ezekiel 28:12-19; Psalm 1:10, 11; Proverbs 2:5. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons and hear him sing “I Am Not Worthy.”]
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, shared points numbered 19 through 25 for how to eat healthy.
19. Do not eat fast or while rushing. Better to skip a meal or eat less than to eat in a hurry.
20. Eat in a pleasant environment.
21. Never eat between meals.
22. Drink fruit or vegetable juices optimally 30 minutes before a fruit or vegetable meal respectively. Or drink the juice as the meal. This is not always possible as some people need significant amounts of juice. However, this is a great plan for maintenance.
23. Do not chew gum or candy. They trick the digestive system into releasing digestive juices in expectation of digesting a meal and instead, irritate the lining of the stomach, which leads to the development of ulcers.
24. Do not eat chocolate in any form.
25. Make your food and your table attractive.
Eating healthy is the second wellness principle embedded in the REFRESHING Way lifestyle. REFRESHING stands for Rely on God. Eat healthy. Fresh air. Rest. Exercise. Self-Control (temperance). H2O (drink water). In the sun. Never give up. Give to others.
