Worship: John the Baptist / Wellness: Allergies and Protein


Listen

JOHN THE BAPTIST

Pastor Flemons with TORSOE Ministry shared shared highlights of the life of John the Baptist. From his temperate diet to His country life as a child He was prepared to be a fearless reprover of evil. He was the forerunner who prepared the way for Jesus. Listen to the recording to hear inspiration from Conflict and Courage and commentary by Pastor Flemons.

allergies and Protein by Pastor Shelem Flemons

Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that you can eat too much protein and cause the body to manufacture too much histamine. This is the primary contributor to allergy symptoms.

The flesh of animals and their byproducts, like eggs, milk and cheese, have a high protein content. We need to understand, says Pastor Flemons, “We were not made to drink the milk of a cow.” And we really do not need so much protein to be healthy.

“We’ve been lied to,” he says. We would do well to simply eat more of the fruits and vegetables and less of nuts and other protein-rich foods. Besides that, we should completely exclude the protein sourced from the flesh of animals (including fowls and fish) and their byproducts: the eggs, the milk, the cheese.

The Remnant Church Not Babylon

By Pastor Flemons

Listen

Rev. 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 

Here’s a quotation that you will probably never hear anywhere else.

We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted, and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird; and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?” Manuscript 21 p. 380

In this recorded message, Pastor Flemons proves that any church can fall and become a part of Babylon. All of the Stanton letters, which tell us not to call the church Babylon, had clarifiers. If an organization does not meet the conditions of the clarifiers, we cannot say that it can never become Babylon. The operative word in the quotation above is “allowing.” How was the church in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon? It was in danger of “allowing” the church to become corrupted.

It would be antithetical to the principles of Protestantism to teach that a church organization could not fall under any circumstances. The statement above proves that keeping Sunday and teaching that the soul is immortal are not the only criterion that makes a church become part of Babylon. It can “allow” corruption.

There will always be a faithful people; and therefore it can be said that God’s true church will never become Babylon. This is true of faithful people, but cannot be applied to an organization.

In conclusion, Pastor Flemons is not declaring that the SDA organization is Babylon. However, he is warning us not be led into carnal security that no matter what it does, says, and decides, that it can never become a part of Babylon. This is Protestantism. Please listen to the message to get the rest of the story.

On the sea of Glass

Posted by Shelem Flemons on Thursday, September 19, 2019

Pastor Flemons with TORSOE Ministry shared Scripture and commentary regarding the beauty of certain aspects of the city, New Jerusalem. The Bible mentions these beautiful, infrastructural masterpieces of the Holy City. There is a sea of glass, walls of jasper, gates of pearl, and streets of gold. Listen to the recording to understand the spiritual significance of each element. Scriptures follow that declare their existence.

Rev. 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 

Rev. 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 

Rev. 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

9 Everyday Things That Are Dirtier Than a Toilet

By Maria Flemons

Maria Flemons share 8 items from an article by the thespruce.com. The 9th item was suggested by one of our listeners.

phone by a toilet

01 of 09
Your Cellphone

Even if you never take your cellphone into the bathroom for a little toilet time scrolling, it is still covered with the bacteria from everything else you touch and every surface it touches.
Cleaning is very simple with the right supplies: a bit of rubbing alcohol, distilled water, and a microfiber lint-free cloth. While you’re cleaning, don’t forget to clean your earbuds and other accessories.

02 of 09
Keyboards and Remote Controls

How many times each day do you touch your laptop keyboard or the remote controls for the television, game systems, or even ceiling fans? Just like your phone, they harbor the germs from every hand that’s touched it.
Cleaning is easy if you use a disinfectant wipe made for electronics. This should be done at least daily and more often if someone in the household has a virus or infection.

3 of 09
Bathroom Doorknobs 

Does everyone in your house wash their hands faithfully each time they use the bathroom, sneeze, or prepare food? Probably not.
It’s not just the bathroom doorknob that teems with bacteria or is virus-laden, it’s all the doorknobs, handles, light switches, and electronic keypads around the house. A quick wipe down with a disinfectant wipe will take care of the problem. Be sure to use one wipe per room. One wipe won’t disinfect an entire house full of knobs!

04 of 09
Cutting Board 

Food-borne bacteria in the kitchen are the cause of many of the most common illnesses in a household. Cross-contamination from raw foods, mishandled food, unwashed produce, and improper food temperatures are all breeding grounds for bacteria.
Cutting boards, especially wooden ones, are some of the worst offenders because bacteria can become embedded in the tiny cuts and nicks in the surface. Cutting boards should be washed in hot, soapy water after every use and there should be separate boards for meats and vegetables.

05 of 09
Kitchen Sponges

When you catch a whiff of a foul-smelling sponge, what you’re smelling it is the odor from coliform bacteria (Salmonella or E.coli) lurking in the sponge pores. And when you use that sponge to wipe down countertops, you are spreading a fine layer of that bacteria all over the surfaces.
Zapping the sponge in the microwave for a few minutes just won’t do the trick. The sponges must be cleaned with a heavy duty disinfectant in boiling water to really clean them. It’s best to simply replace them every few weeks.

06 of 09
Reusable Grocery Bags

Reusable grocery bags are great for the environment but they can pose a hazard to your family’s health. Each time you load in groceries, the bacteria from a leaking meat package, unwashed produce, and other dirty packages go in the bags as well.
When you get home, the bags are emptied and then often stashed in the trunk of a hot car until the next shopping trip. The heat encourages the growth of any bacteria that remain in the bags.
It is important to wash the bags used for meats, vegetables, and raw foods after every use. It’s a good idea to designate one bag for any chemical cleaning products to prevent accidental cross-contamination.

7 of 09
Pet Toys and Food Bowls 

Our pets are part of the family and we want them to remain as healthy as possible. Most of us wash our dishes after each use to prevent bacteria from growing on the utensils and making us sick. Do you do the same for your pet?
Pet bowls are filled with bacteria from the animal’s mouth and the leftover food and multiply after every use. Bowls should be washed after every meal with hot water and soap. The same treatment should frequently be done to pet toys.

08 of 09
Purses or Backpacks

Purses and backpacks often end up on the floor of stores, offices, classrooms, and bathrooms. Now imagine what else has touched that floor. The handles harbor the bacteria from everything your hands have touched throughout the day.
When we toss a handbag or backpack on the kitchen counter or table, all those germs and bacteria come along. If the purse or backpack can be washed, do it often or use a disinfectant wipe to clean the bags often and keep them away from food preparation and eating areas.

09 of 09
Trash Cans and Bins

Trash cans carry bacteria and germs which can create sickness and odors from food items. It is best to dump food particles outside in a designated area for compost to avoid food spoilage, odor and pest. Also, place only trash into the cans or bins. Put into place the green method and recycle items. Empty the cans or bins as needed, then spray a disinfectant into them before placing a new bag. Be sure to clean the cans or bins with hot soapy water and a disinfectant as often as needed.

Scripture Text – James 5:16

“Without unceasing prayer and diligent watching we are in danger of growing careless and of deviating from the right path. The adversary seeks continually to obstruct the way to the mercy seat, that we may not by earnest supplication and faith obtain grace and power to resist temptation.” Steps to Christ, p 95

“Let nothing, however dear, however loved, absorb your mind and affections, diverting you from the study of God’s word or from earnest prayer.” Testimonies for the Church, Vol 8., p 53

“Stronger and stronger should be our confidence that God’s Spirit will be with us, making us pure and holy, as upright and fragrant as the cedar of Lebanon.” Gospel Workers, p 272

“That prayer which comes forth from an earnest, believing heart is the effectual, fervent prayer that availeth much. God does not always answer our prayers as we expect, for we may not ask what would be for our highest good; but in His infinite love and wisdom He will give us those things which we most need.” Testimonies for the Church, Vol., 4, p 531

None of These Diseases

Listen to this dynamic message entitled, “None of These Diseases.” It was presented at Calvary SDA Church by Pastor Shelem Flemons of TORSOE Ministry!

Ex. 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

More about the Judgment of the Great Whore

Posted by Shelem Flemons on Tuesday, September 17, 2019

Pastor Flemons reviewed the high points of Revelation 17, starting with verse seven. He then focused on the 10 horns, which are said to be 10 kings that had not yet come. They would rule for 1 hour, which would be about 15 days. Here are the scriptures. Then we will explain more in detail.

Rev. 17:7   And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.  8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.  9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.  10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.  11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.  12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.  13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 

Rev. 17:14   These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.  15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.  16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.  17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.  18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. 

Pastor Flemons reviewed the meaning of the five kings that are fallen. They represented Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Pagan Rome, and Papal Rome. These were all fallen by 1798, when the beast was said to be in the wilderness, a word that equates with obscurity. The one that is would refer to the United States. The one that had not yet come would be the New World Order.

The 10 horns represent Apostate Protestantism and its work in end-time events. It will eventually hate the whore, because while the Protestants are eager to have everyone worship on Sunday, they later find out that the Papacy secretly is trying to regain control of the world.

COCONUT OIL FOR HOUSEHOLD USES BY MARIA FLEMONS

More household uses of coconut

Remedy recipe: 1/2 cup Coconut Oil, 1/2 cup Raw Honey, and 1-2 drops of Thieves Essential Oil (combination of Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Clove & Lemon Oils). Mix well and add mixture to ice tray with filing only 1/4 of the each tray cup. After 20 mins, place transfer drops to a mason jar and keep in fridge. Use as needed.

4. DIY Candles

Don’t worry, you’ll still smell fresh and clean. Just mix equal parts cornstarch and baking soda, then add a few tablespoons of coconut oil so the mixture will glide on smoothly.

POWER OF PRAYER BOOK BY ELLEN G. WHITE

PRIVATE PRAYERS -CHAPTER 26 – PAGES 57, 58

Scripture Text – Psalms 20:1-2

The Pharisees had stated hours for prayer; and when, as often came to pass, they were abroad at the appointed time, they would pause wherever they might be—perhaps in the street or the market place, amid the hurrying throngs of men—and there in a loud voice rehearse their formal prayers. Such worship, offered merely for self-glorification, called forth unsparing rebuke from Jesus. He did not, however, discountenance public prayer, for He Himself prayed with His disciples and in the presence of the multitude. But He teaches that private prayer is not to be made public. In secret devotion our prayers are to reach the ears of none but the prayer-hearing God. No curious ear is to receive the burden of such petitions.
“When thou prayest, enter into thy closet.” Have a place for secret prayer. Jesus had select places for communion with God, and so should we. We need often to retire to some spot, however humble, where we can be alone with God.
“Pray to thy Father which is in secret.” In the name of Jesus we may come into God’s presence with the confidence of a child. No man is needed to act as a mediator. Through Jesus we may open our hearts to God as to one who knows and loves us.
In the secret place of prayer, where no eye but God’s can see, no ear but His can hear, we may pour out our most hidden desires and longings to the Father of infinite pity, and in the hush and silence of the soul that voice which never fails to answer the cry of human need will speak to our hearts. Thoughts from the Mount of Blessing, pp 83, 84

Mother of harlots

Mother of harlots

Posted by Shelem Flemons on Monday, September 16, 2019

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Revelation 17:5

 After reading Revelation 17:5 above, Pastor Flemons read portions of the following article from Spalding and Magan Collection. It contains some gems of truth applicable for God’s people in the last days. It also lets us know that the Roman Catholic Church, the Mother of Harlots, has daughters in the Apostate Protestant churches. These will bring about the persecution. They are actors on the scene, but they are encouraged by the Mother in their work.

I saw that we must wake up, wake, and cry earnestly for the arm of the Lord to be revealed. It is fatal to sleep now. Time is almost finished. I saw that it was a shame for us to refer to the scattering for examples to govern us now in the gathering time; for if God does no more for us now than He did then, we shall never be gathered. In the scattering, Israel were torn and smitten, but now God will bind up and heal them. { SpM 1.1 }
I saw that God had stretched out His hand the second time to recover the remnant of His people. They are these who have been covered up in the “rubbish” since 1844. I saw that efforts to spread the truth should now be put forth, such as in 1843 and 1844. In the scattering, efforts to spread the truth had but little effect—accomplished but little or nothing—but now in the gathering time, when God has set His hand to gather His people, efforts to spread the truth will have their designed effect; and all should be zealous and united in the work. I saw that a paper was needed, and all should feel interested in it. { SpM 1.2 }
I saw that the truth should be made plain upon tables, that the earth and the fullness thereof is the Lord’s, and that necessary means should not be spared to make it plain. I saw that the old chart was directed by the Lord, and that not a figure of it should be altered except by inspiration. I saw that the figures of the chart were as God would have them, and that His hand was over and hid a mistake in some of the figures, so that none should see it till His hand was removed. { SpM 1.3 }
I saw that the two-horned beast had a dragon’s mouth, and that his power was in his head, and that the decree would go out of his mouth. Then I saw the Mother of Harlots; that the mother was not the daughters, but separate and distinct from them. She has had her day, and it is past, and her daughters, the Protestant sects, were the next to come on the stage and act out the same mind that the mother had when she persecuted the saints. I saw that as the mother has been declining in power, the daughters had been growing, and soon they will exercise the power once exercised by the mother. { SpM 1.4 }
I saw the nominal church and nominal Adventists, like Judas, would betray us to the Catholics to obtain their influence to come against the truth. The saints then will be an obscure people, little known to the Catholics; but the churches and nominal Adventists who know of our faith and customs (for they hated us on account of the Sabbath, for they could not refute it) will betray the saints and report them to the Catholics as those who disregard the institutions of the people; that is, that they keep the Sabbath and disregard Sunday. { SpM 1.5 }
2
Then the Catholics bid the Protestants to go forward, and issue a decree that all who will not observe the first day of the week, instead of the seventh day, shall be slain. And the Catholics, whose numbers are large, will stand by the Protestants. The Catholics will give their power to the image of the beast. And the Protestants will work as their mother worked before them to destroy the saints. But before their decree bring or bear fruit, the saints will be delivered by the Voice of God. Then I saw that Jesus’ work in the sanctuary will soon be finished. And after His work there is finished, He will come to the door of the first apartment, and confess the sins of Israel upon the head of the Scape Goat. Then He will put on the garments of vengeance. Then the plagues will come upon the wicked, and they do not come till Jesus puts on that garment, and takes His place upon the great white cloud. Then while the plagues are falling, the Scape Goat is being led away. He makes a mighty struggle to escape, but he is held fast by the hand that leads him. If he should effect his escape, Israel would lose their lives. I saw that it would take time to lead away the Scape Goat into the land of forgetfulness after the sins were put on his head. { SpM 2.1 }
The great white cloud I saw was not the holy place, but entirely separate from the holy and most holy place, entirely separate from the sanctuary. { SpM 2.2 }
Then the angel repeated these words, and said, “This is the time spoken of in Isaiah. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. He had no mediator between God and man, and these plagues could be withheld no longer, for Jesus had ceased to plead for Israel, and they were covered with the covering of the Almighty God, and then they could live in the sight of a holy God, and those who were not covered, the plagues fell upon them, for they had nothing to shelter or protect them from the wrath of God.” Dorchester, [Mass.], October 23, 1850. { SpM 2.3 }

coconut oil for household uses by Maria flemons

Coconut Oil for household Uses

Posted by Shelem Flemons on Monday, September 16, 2019

1. Remove Sticky Labels 

Removing sticky labels and the gunk that comes with them can be tough, but there are so many adorable projects involving upcycled glass jars. What’s an eco-conscious DIY-er to do? Turn to coconut oil. When melted, the oil’s unique texture and chemical properties make it a perfect adhesive remover. Simply wash the jar with soap and water, wipe it dry, scrub with coconut oil, and voila! Now you’re ready to give that old jar or bottle new life.

2. Fix Squeaky Hinges 

There’s nothing quite as annoying as a noisy door hinge. You can easily silence that squeak with a teaspoon or two of coconut oil. Open and close the door after dabbing oil on the squeaky hinge to work it through your hardware and find peace in your squeak-free home.

3. Polish Furniture 

With a quick rub of coconut oil, wooden furniture can look like new again. Combine the restoring coconut oil with vinegar and lemon juice to boost its cleaning power if necessary.

4. Clean Showers 

Commercial bathroom cleaners can be costly when it comes to our wallets and our health. Take the natural route and form a paste of coconut oil and baking soda. This miracle mixture only takes ten minutes to work its magic on soap scum or mildew. Wipe clean with a towel and prepare for a sparkly shower.

5. Erase Crayon From Walls 

Crayons are a blast, but sometimes kids forget to color in the lines… and on the paper. If crayon coloring goes amiss, coconut oil will save the day!

6. Remove Scuff Marks 

Rub coconut oil directly onto those tough-to-remove floor marks and see them lift away with ease. Go ahead and dance like no one’s watching.

7. Clean and Restore Leather 

Coconut oil is the ultimate moisturizer, making it an easy choice to moisturize that dried out leather sofa. While it moisturizes, coconut oil’s antibacterial properties will get to work, leaving you with a clean and restored leather product.

8. Polish Appliances 

Stainless steel is a staple in modern home design and is a popular choice for appliances like dishwashers and ovens. You can keep these beauties from looking dull by rubbing a few teaspoons of coconut oil on their surfaces.

9. Preserve Wooden Cutting Boards 

Because cutting boards bear the grunt of our cooking endeavors, it’s important to maintain them properly. After disinfecting your wooden cutting board with vinegar and lemon, swipe on a layer of coconut oil for a moisturized and restored look. Using coconut oil when maintaining your wooden cutting board will naturally keep it clean and extend its life.

10. Season a Cast Iron Pan 

Before you can cook the perfect steak in your new skillet, you must season your cast iron properly to create a slick cooking surface. The process involves covering the pan’s surface with a thin layer of oil and baking it in the oven. The best seasoning oil is – you guessed it – coconut oil!

Private prayers -chapter 26 – Pages 57, 58

Scripture Text – Matt 11:28-30

[In public meetings] upon common occasions there should not be prayer of more than ten minutes’ duration. After there has been a change of position, and the exercise of singing or exhortation has relieved the sameness, then, if any feel the burden of prayer, let them pray.
All should feel it a Christian duty to pray short. Tell the Lord just what you want, without going all over the world. In private prayer all have the privilege of praying as long as they desire and of being as explicit as they please. They can pray for all their relatives and friends. The closet is the place to tell all their private difficulties, and trials, and temptations. A common meeting to worship God is not the place to open the privacies of the heart.
What is the object of assembling together? Is it to inform God, to instruct Him by telling Him all we know in prayer? Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 2, p. 578

Private prayer, family prayer, prayer in public gatherings for the worship of God—all are essential. And we are to live our prayers. We are to co-operate with Christ in His work. Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 7, p. 239

There are some, I fear, who do not take their troubles to God in private prayer, but reserve them for the prayer meeting, and there do up their praying for several days. Such may be named conference and prayer meeting killers. They emit no light; they edify no one. Their cold, frozen prayers and long, backslidden testimonies cast a shadow. All are glad when they get through, and it is almost impossible to throw off the chill and darkness which their prayers and exhortations bring into the meeting. From the light which I have received, our meetings should be spiritual and social, and not too long. Reserve, pride, vanity, and fear of man should be left at home. Little differences and prejudices should not be taken with us to these meetings.

Protestantism sermon by pastor Shelem Flemons

This a recorded sermon by Pastor Shelem Flemons wherein he discusses the principles of the Protestantism. Often, when we cannot agree with an organized church, our actions are termed “rebellion.” This occurred in the time that Christ was on the earth. It occurred during the dark ages. It is still occurring now. It is important that we understand these principles. Our salvation may depend on it. Listen to the recording.

The 7 Heads

the seven heads

7 Horns

Posted by Shelem Flemons on Friday, September 13, 2019

Pastor Shelem Flemons continued in this series by explaining the seven heads of the beast of the Revelation 17. They are the seven major false religious systems from Babylon to the second coming of Christs. These are the major entities used by Satan to perpetuate deception.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. Rev. 17:3

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.  10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.  11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.  Rev. 17:9-11

The verses above teach that there can be m ore than one application for a symbol. The seven heads are said to be seven mountains. They are also said to be seven kings. The seven mountains can represent the seven hills of Rome. The Roman Catholic Church claims authority over an area outside of the Vatican in the city of Rome in which are found seven distinct hils.

The seven Kings are the seven major powers that the devil has used since the time of Babylon which is the first major pagan kingdom to discriminate the the major errors that deceive the world. The seven heads are as follows.

  1. 1. Babylon
  2. 2. Medo – Persia
  3. 3. Greece
  4. 4. Pagan Rome
  5. 5. Papal Rome (The Roman Catholic Church
  6. 6. United States Of America when it speaks like a dragon (Rev. 13:11-17)
  7. 7. The New World Order.

During the time that the Papacy is in obscurity starting in 1798, five of the heads had fallen, one is, which is the United States, and one is yet to come, (The New World Order) which will continue a short space. The eighth is said to be “of the seven.” before going into perdition. This represents the Papacy, as Sunday legislation exalts her to her former glory. She is the eighth which is of the seven because she has already been mentioned as one of the seven. Yet, this new rise to power will be marked.

A definition of health that you won’t learn in medical School by pastor Shelem, a doctor of biblical wellness

A Definition of Health that you won’t learn in medical school

Posted by Shelem Flemons on Friday, September 13, 2019

True health is not taught in medical school. However, it is taught in scripture.

John 5:6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

Matt. 9:12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

Deut. 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 

True health is physical, mental and spiritual wholeness. You cannot be whole unless all three aspects of man are in harmony with the Bible standard. While the New Age movement also recognized these three elements, they do not recognize the God of the Bible as the source of spiritual life.

Only those who are whole need not a physician.

Sharing and Caring by Maria Flemons

When Prayer Is Presumptuous -Chapter 44

Power of prayer book pages 92-93

He urged Christ to show His confidence in the preserving care of His Father by casting Himself down from the Temple. The Redeemer of the world wavered not from His integrity and showed that He had perfect faith in His Father’s promised care. He would not put the faithfulness and love of His Father to a needless trial, although He was in the hands of the enemy, and placed in a position of extreme difficulty and peril. He would not, at Satan’s suggestion, tempt God by presumptuously experimenting on His providence. Selected Messages, vol 1., 282

To claim that prayer will always be answered in the very way and for the particular thing that we desire, is presumption. Steps to Christ, p.96

He did not seek to do the will of God, but chose his own course, and then endeavored to secure the sanction of the Lord. There are thousands at the present day who are pursuing a similar course. They would have no difficulty in understanding their duty if it were in harmony with their inclinations. It is plainly set before them in the Bible or is clearly indicated by circumstances and reason. But because these evidences are contrary to their desires and inclinations they frequently set them aside and presume to go to God to learn their duty. Patriachs and Prophets, pp 440,441
