Worship: When a Thing Seems Right / Wellness: The Real Cause of Acid Reflux, Similar Issues

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The Bible provides principles for living. But then there are overriding principles that are best applied in certain situations. When we do not appropriately apply biblical principles, that’s when we get into trouble, says Pastor Flemons. We must ask God for guidance in knowing how to choose and when to apply the overriding principles in every situation. For “there is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).

(For further details and to sing with Pastor Flemons Hymn 523, “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus,” please listen to the recording and read Proverbs 14:12; 16:25; Psalm 119:9, 10; Isaiah 28:13; and DA 84.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Acid reflux may feel like a heart attack. That’s because when digestive juices are backing up into the esophagus, the chest area is painful and there is a burning sensation. GERD is a more severe condition of acid reflux. “GERD is short for gastroesophageal reflux disease.” It is caused by anything that makes an overproduction of acid, says Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness. Eating between meals does it. Chewing gum, in the long run, does it. Flesh eating does it. Eating late at night does it. Stress does it. Stomach acid burns, he says. But the mucus lining of the stomach protects it from the harsh burning of digestive acids. It is in places where the mucus lining has been weakened or dissipated that an ulcer can develop. Pastor Flemons says licorice or DGL is an excellent natural remedy for acid reflux. But it must be noted that regular licorice raises the blood pressure and blood sugar. DGL won’t. “It is made from licorice from which the glycyrrhizin has been removed,” according to the Wikipedia entry. For further details, listen to the recording and visit the draxe.com article on licorice root and DGL.

Sharing Time  Should you taken aspirin every day if you are older than 60 years to prevent heart attacks or strokes? Pastor Flemons does not support using drugs for prevention. He recommends drinking lemon juice, eating garlic, taking cayenne or white willow bark. They are all blood thinners. Pastor Flemons also gave an extended response to a question about the violation of religious rights regarding customer service to the LGBT community.

Romans 8:38, 39  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Worship: Relating to Leaders in the Sanctuary / Wellness: Why Healthcare Is So Expensive

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake   Religious leaders are flawed and are not to be depended on for our spiritual food. Pastor Flemons explained. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, read an article that says the reason healthcare is so expensive is because of the innovations. The innovations add cost, but do not improve health. Pastor Flemons says the real reason for increased healthcare expense is the love of money and hearts that are fully set on selfish gratification, rather than on improving health. He quoted 1 Timothy 6:10 and Ecclesiastes 8:12, and said that if people would follow biblical wellness principles, there would be far less chronic illness. Because people prefer to pop pills for healing, rather than improve their diet and lifestyle, the system will continue to increase healthcare expense and people will continue to be sick.

Words of Encouragement

Jeremiah 30:7  Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Isaiah 25:4  For thou has been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“The history of the early church testified to the fulfillment of the Saviour’s words. The powers of earth and hell arrayed themselves against Christ in the person of His followers. Paganism foresaw that should the gospel triumph, her temples and altars would be swept away; therefore she summoned her forces to destroy Christianity. The fires of persecution were kindled. Christians were stripped of their possessions and driven from their homes. They ‘endured a great fight of afflictions.’ Hebrews 10:32. They ‘had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment.’ Hebrews 11:36. Great numbers sealed their testimony with their blood. Noble and slave, rich and poor, learned and ignorant, were alike slain without mercy. {GC 39.2}

 “These persecutions, beginning under Nero about the time of the martyrdom of Paul, continued with greater or less fury for centuries. Christians were falsely accused of the most dreadful crimes and declared to be the cause of great calamities—famine, pestilence, and earthquake. As they became the objects of popular hatred and suspicion, informers stood ready, for the sake of gain, to betray the innocent. They were condemned as rebels against the empire, as foes of religion, and pests to society. Great numbers were thrown to wild beasts or burned alive in the amphitheaters. Some were crucified; others were covered with the skins of wild animals and thrust into the arena to be torn by dogs. Their punishment was often made the chief entertainment at public fetes. Vast multitudes assembled to enjoy the sight and greeted their dying agonies with laughter and applause. {GC 40.1}

“Wherever they sought refuge, the followers of Christ were hunted like beasts of prey. They were forced to seek concealment in desolate and solitary places. ‘Destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.’ Verses 37, 38. The catacombs afforded shelter for thousands. Beneath the hills outside the city of Rome, long galleries had been tunneled through earth and rock; the dark and intricate network of passages extended for miles beyond the city walls. In these underground retreats the followers of Christ buried their dead; and here also, when suspected and proscribed, they found a home. When the Life-giver shall awaken those who have fought the good fight, many a martyr for Christ’s sake will come forth from those gloomy caverns. {GC 40.2}

“Like God’s servants of old, many were ‘tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection.’ Verse 35. These called to mind the words of their Master, that when persecuted for Christ’s sake, they were to be exceeding glad, for great would be their reward in heaven; for so the prophets had been persecuted before them. They rejoiced that they were accounted worthy to suffer for the truth, and songs of triumph ascended from the midst of crackling flames. Looking upward by faith, they saw Christ and angels leaning over the battlements of heaven, gazing upon them with the deepest interest and regarding their steadfastness with approval. A voice came down to them from the throne of God: ‘Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.’ Revelation 2:10{GC 41.2}

For Health’s Sake…

Cucumber juice, beet juice, and carrot juice: each naturally performs at least one thing that medications for hypertension are designed to do to normalize blood pressure. Medications for hypertension tend to be an ace inhibitor, a beta blocker, a calcium channel blocker, and/or a diuretic. They are easy to remember, when you think of them as the ABC&D for hypertension.

Cucumber juice is a diuretic. Beet juice has the ABC&D for hypertension. It is best taken in sips and slowly consumed over at least a 45-minute period, beginning first thing in the morning. Carrot juice has a wide spectrum of nutrients; but it is an excellent source of potassium, which balances out sodium. Because of the level of sweetness, however, diabetics are cautioned against carrot and beet juices.

Two additional points with regard to juicing are these: (1) You can make any green juice palatable by adding fresh lemon juice, a Granny Smith apple, and fresh ginger. (2) The drier the pulp after juicing, the better the juicer. According to Pastor Flemons, there is no better juicer than the Super Angel Juicer, which sells for about $1,000. You may be interested in listening to the recording to hear his brief comparisons and other pointers about juicers.

One final point to remember is this: If you eat right and live right, says Pastor Flemons, you are going to have a good or normal blood pressure.

Worship: The Gospel Is Going to the White House / Wellness: The Importance of Exercise

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Paul, a poor friendless prisoner, could not have been expected to gain attention among the wealthy and titled classes of Rome. The gospel has always been more successful among humbler classes. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, briefly discussed the importance of exercise, noting that the best exercise is walking briskly in fresh air or gardening. Exercise increases the circulation of blood to every cell. It also gets toxins out of cells to help provide healthy blood. As we learn in Leviticus 17:11, “the life of the flesh is in the blood.” And in Proverbs 14:30 we learn that “a sound heart is the life of the flesh.” Exercise does the heart good. Exercise for your life.

Words of Encouragement

Revelation 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Revelation 3:10, 11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

For Heaven’s Sake…

“Yet while the apostle’s work began with the humble and the lowly, its influence extended until it reached the very palace of the emperor. . . . Paul is in bonds as an evildoer; but “the word of God is not bound.” 2 Timothy 2:9 AA 461.2, 461.3

“Nowhere could there exist an atmosphere more uncongenial to Christianity than in the Roman court. Nero seemed to have obliterated from his soul the last trace of the divine, and even of the human, and to bear the impress of Satan. His attendants and courtiers were in general of the same character as himself–fierce, debased, and corrupt. To all appearance it would be impossible for Christianity to gain a foothold in the court and palace of Nero. AA 462.3

“And by what means was an entrance achieved and a firm footing gained for Christianity where even its admission seemed impossible? In his epistle to the Philippians, Paul ascribed to his own imprisonment his success in winning converts to the faith from Nero’s household. Fearful lest it might be thought that his afflictions had impeded the progress of the gospel, he assured them: ‘I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel.’ Philippians 1:12. AA 463.2

“Not by Paul’s sermon’s, but by his bonds, was the attention of the court attracted to Christianity. It was as a captive that he broke from so many souls the bonds that held them in the slavery of sin. Nor was this all. He declared: ‘Many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.’ Philippians 1:14. AA 464.1

“Paul’s patience and cheerfulness during his long and unjust imprisonment, his courage and faith, were a continual sermon. His spirit, so unlike the spirit of the world, bore witness that a power higher than that of earth was abiding with him. And by his example, Christians were impelled to greater energy as advocates of the cause from the public labors of which Paul had been withdrawn. In these ways were the apostle’s bonds influential, so that when his power and usefulness seemed cut off, and to all appearance he could do the least, then it was that he gathered sheaves for Christ in fields from which he seemed wholly excluded. AA 464.2

“Before the close of that two years’ imprisonment, Paul was able to say, ‘My bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places,’ and among those who sent greetings to the Philippians he mentions chiefly them ‘that are of Caesar’s household.’ Verse 13; 4:22. AA 464.3

“Patience as well as courage has its victories. By meekness under trial, no less than by boldness in enterprise, souls may be won to Christ. The Christian who manifests patience and cheerfulness under bereavement and suffering, who meets even death itself with the peace and calmness of an unwavering faith, may accomplish for the gospel more than he could have effected by a long life of faithful labor. Often when the servant of God is withdrawn from active duty, the mysterious providence which our shortsighted vision would lament is designed by God to accomplish a work that otherwise would never have been done. AA 465.1
