Worship: Christians, Colorful Cosmetics, Jewelry, and Flashy Clothes #6 / Wellness: Fresh Air Best Practices

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Jezebel, daughter of the high priest of Baal, was a specialist in seduction. She was known as one who painted her face and whose witchcrafts were many. Known also for her whoredoms, Jezebel seduced and married Ahab, the king of Israel, who was already weak in moral power. But through the influence of Jezebel, Ahab set himself apart from all other kings of Israel.

“There was none like unto Ahab,” who “did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. And he did very abominably in following idols, according to all things as did the Amorites, whom the Lord cast out before the children of Israel.” 1 Kings 21:25, 26. {PK 114.3}

“Not only did Ahab introduce Baal worship at the capital city, but under the leadership of Jezebel he erected heathen altars in many “high places,” where in the shelter of surrounding groves the priests and others connected with this seductive form of idolatry exerted their baleful influence, until well-nigh all Israel were following after Baal.”

The terrible evil that resulted from the union of King Ahab and Jezebel was such that God commanded that all of their descendants be destroyed. Notably, one of the distinctive components of her seductive strategies was to paint her face and sit to be seen.

[For additional details, please read 2 Kings 9:22, 30-37; 1 Kings 16:29-33; 2 Chronicles 23:8, 12; PK 114, 115, 215, 216. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons and hear him sing “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, shared points about how to get fresh air daily.

  1. 1. Spend as much time as possible out of doors or exposed to fresh air.
  2. 2. Learn to breathe deeply. When you inhale, your stomach should go out. When you exhale, your stomach should go in.
  3. 3. Breathe in air that is as pure as possible. Country air is much healthier than the polluted air in the cities.
  4. 4. Ensure that there is pure air circulating in the home or work place during the day and night.
  5. 5. Don’t sleep under a draft. Maintain the circulation of fresh air at all times by opening at least two windows across from each other in the home.
  6. 6. Always provide fresh air for those recovering from illness. It is especially important to their full recovery.
  7. 7. Avoid inhaling fumes, cigarette smoke, and other toxic chemicals.
  8. 8. Remove dead leaves that are close around the home. Dead leaves poison the air with a toxic miasma.
  9. 9. Go out in nature and enjoy the scenes of God’s beauty as much as possible. This will inspire you with thoughts of His magnificent power. It will be clear to you to reason that since God is able to make all of these (majestic mountains, thundering waterfalls, towering forests, colorful flowers), then surely God is able to heal you of all your diseases. The fact that He provides us with such beauty proves that He is concerned about each of us.

Fresh air is the third wellness principle of 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.

(For more details, please listen to the recording and you will also hear Pastor Flemons sing “Somebody Bigger Than You and I.”)
