Worship: Modesty in Dress / Wellness: Importance of Rest

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Dress reform (presented in its own mini-series) 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.”

Modesty in dress, says Pastor Flemons, can be related to sexual purity. Think of modesty as being careful to avoid dressing in a way that accentuates the parts of your body that needs to be seen only by your spouse. Modesty is just plain decency, says Pastor Flemons. It does not mean that you must dress with a continual head covering, for instance. And don’t be gaudy. Don’t attract attention to yourself. Simply be elegant and appropriate.

Always represent Christ. And never waste God’s money on costly array, says Pastor Flemons, who shared a recent experience in a high-end designer store.

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that you can add years to your life just by getting to bed on time. In fact, he says that it is important to get rest for a number of reasons. For one, the immune system is supported by rest. But so is every other organ.

Everyone knows, he says, that it is never healthy to burn the candle at both ends. It leads to more stress and achy muscles, more colds and the tendency to get flu, even more problems with digestion. In fact, every system of the body suffers when you don’t get enough rest. You will have more acidity in the system, which leads to all kinds of challenges. It means more free radicals in the system that weaken the immune system. More calcium will be leeched from the bones. Hormones will become more imbalanced.

It is really important to set a good schedule, says Pastor Flemons. Try to get into the bed earlier than 9:30, but 9:30 at the latest, he says. And never go to bed on a full stomach of undigested food, or you won’t be resting anyway. If you must eat fairly close to going to bed, make it very light so that it can digest within a couple of hours. That would be fruit, air-popped popcorn, zwieback crackers, for instance. Hefty meals require typically five hours to fully digest.

One final piece of advice from Pastor Flemons: “Don’t burn that midnight oil. It’s gonna burn out your lights!”

Words of Encouragement

Psalm 106:13-15  They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul. (Also read Conflict and Courage for April 7, CC 103.)

Psalm 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. (Also read With God at Dawn for April 7, WGD 99.)
