Worship: For Heaven’s Sake The state of the last days are perilous times, according to 2 Timothy 3:1-7. After a lengthy list of unsavory characteristics, the passage concludes in verse 7 that people would be “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” It’s Pharisaism, says Pastor Flemons. He says, “God gave prophets to help us understand truth and to know God’s will in a more modern setting, always in harmony with His Word.”
After reading Ephesians 4:11-14, Pastor Flemons concluded that “God wants us to be unified” and “gives us the gift of prophecy to help unify us.” That is why He gives the gifts to the church. Instead, in practice we use our gifts to isolate people or to try to separate and divide. If only we were to appreciate the role of the prophets in helping us understand the will of God, we would be rightly guided. We would “be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.”
“To disregard the testimony of the Spirit of prophecy would be like trying to explore the glories of the heavens without a telescope, or understand the beauty and wonders of the invisible things of creation without a microscope. Surely no real student would deprive himself of such valuable help. The ‘testimonies’ of God’s Spirit are even more needed to a deeper and more complete understanding of His Word.” (PTG)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake After his warning against eating chicken, Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that he couldn’t leave out those who eat red meat. Eating red meat, he says, “increases your chance of becoming dead meat.”
A plantbasednews.org article laid the basis of his wellness segment. Among environmental charges, the article claims that red meat is as carcinogenic as asbestos and arsenic. It also claims that eating red meat can increase the risk of diabetes. Topping their list, however, is the finding that eating red meat increases the risk of death sooner than those who eat plant-based protein. The finding was through a study from Harvard School of Public Health.

Sharing and Caring Time Sis. Maria shared the portion of Chapter 6, “The Prayer of Faith,” from the book Prayer by Ellen G. White. The portion is titled “Earnest Prayer Will Baffle Satan’s Strongest Efforts” can be found on page 21. Pastor Flemons responded to a question from Sis. Chester regarding a passage in Luke 6 listing the names of Christ’s disciples, which prompted a discussion about Matthias, who was chosen to replace Judas (Acts 1:15-26), and Paul, who also became an apostle.
Special Prayer Please include in your prayers Listener 1513, who made no special request, and FB viewer Janica Jones, who also did not specify her request. Pray for Sis. David, who will be turning 80 Sunday, May 12, and who will be celebrating with a special worship service May 19. Sis. Chester asks our prayers that she hungers and thirsts after righteousness and be filled with God’s Spirit.
