Worship: Naked and Guilty / Wellness: Dressed to Kill Yourself

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Dress reform follows talks by Pastor Flemons on a number of reforms instituted after 1798, when the Dark Ages ended. These reforms include the Bible, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Sanctuary, the Sabbath, Worship, Country Living, as well as Financial, Education, Home, Prophetic, Faith, Unity, and Health reforms in his series “Preparation for the Final Crisis,” which he says is “preparation for Heaven.”

There is symbolism in clothing and the lack thereof. We all know that. We see it all the time. But it first existed in the Garden of Eden in a way that still applies to all humanity today.

According to Genesis 3, Adam and Eve’s very first encounter with nakedness resulted because of sin. They were guilty of disobedience to God’s expressed will for their lives. Their nakedness pointed to their guilt of sin. They had joined a group of sinners: Satan and the fallen angels. Their clothing signified it. And they were ashamed.

But before this, “A beautiful soft light, the light of God, enshrouded the holy pair. This robe of light was a symbol of their spiritual garments of heavenly innocence. Had they remained true to God it would ever have continued to enshroud them. But when sin entered, they severed their connection with God, and the light that had encircled them departed. Naked and ashamed, they tried to supply the place of the heavenly garments by sewing together fig leaves for a covering.” {COL 310.4}

But the aprons that they made, according to the Genesis 3 account, were inadequate. The aprons only partially covered and partially exposed the guilty pair. God had to sufficiently cover their nakedness with coats. Aprons versus coats: “There is a principle,” says Pastor Flemons. Nakedness still shows the guilt of sin.

[For additional details, please read Genesis 2:25; Genesis 3:7-11Revelation 3:17, 18; and Christ’s Object Lessons, by Ellen G. White, COL 310. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 298, “I Lay My Sins on Jesus.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, continued his talk on being “dressed to kill” in a very real sense. Yes. You can be dressed to actually kill yourself. When you wear too-tight clothing, you risk getting pelvic diseases, he says. For women, this can mean fibroids, which are not deadly. But it can also lead to ovarian and uterine issues, including cancer. For men, this can mean prostate cancer.

Too-tight clothing prevents tissue fluids from flowing in or out of those areas as they normally would. Toxins are therefore contained, and fresh oxygenated blood is hindered. The results can be deadly.

If your clothing leaves an imprint on your skin, it is too tight. Clothing suspended from the shoulders are healthier than heavy clothing held to the body at the waist. Suspenders are better than belts.

“Loosen it up,” says Pastor Flemons. “Don’t wear it tight!”

Words of Encouragement

Leviticus 10:1  And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not. (Also read Conflict and Courage for April 4, CC 100.)

Matthew 11:28-30  Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Also read With God at Dawn for April 4, WGD 96.)
