Worship: Birthday of the Church / Wellness: Don’t Eat Too Much Cake

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  “God spoke His law from Sinai on the fiftieth day from the ‘morrow after’ Israel ate the first Passover, Lev. 23:15,16, when they were delivered from Egypt. The day was then named Pentecost, a word meaning fiftieth. This first Pentecost was the birthday of the Hebrew church.”

Similarly, Pastor Flemons in marking his 51st birthday, said that he wants to honor God more now than in his first fifty years. He says, “God gave wonderful principles by which we can live.” He read Acts 2, that describes the day of Pentecost in which God’s people were filled with the Spirit. He also read Exodus 31:3, and shared his personal prayer, which is to be “filled” “with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.” Let’s give our minds to God, he says, that we may be in harmony with His will for our lives. Also “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19).

[For additional details, please read Exodus 31:3; Acts 2; and “The First Pentecost The Birthday of the Hebrew Church” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 202 original. PTG 275 latest edition. PTG 153 online.) Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 268, “Holy Spirit, Light Divine.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, mentioned how it is that often on one’s birthday, too much cake gets eaten during the course of too much celebration. The excess celebration then leads to some kind of suffering soon afterward.

His message was simple and to the point, “Don’t eat too much cake!” In other words, practice self-control. Don’t eat anything that is harmful. And only eat in moderation those things that are healthy. Being that it was his birthday, Pastor Flemons determined to practice what he preaches.

Sharing Time  The men of TOR Worship and Wellness Broadcast listening family stepped up in full to honor Pastor Flemons on his 51st birthday with songs, words of encouragement, and even a proclamation: from the eldest (Bro. Chester), who went first, to the youngest (Sis. Audrey’s grandson Alex), who closed out the broadcast with a special prayer for the pastor.

Sis. Audrey closed with a text received from Sis. Kaven, who sends her “grateful thanks to the TOR family for their prayers, love and support during [her] father’s illness and recent passing.” She says, “Our Heavenly Father is Gentle, Merciful, and the Best Comforter for the grieving heart. Blessings!”

Special Prayer  Please include in your prayers today listener 5933, who came on to sing a song and pray in the pastor’s honor. Pastor Flemons has requested that we pray to God that he be filled with the Spirit in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.

Words of Encouragement

Hebrews 11:17-19  By faith Abraham when he was tried, offered up Isaac; and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, … accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead. (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 56.)

2 Corinthians 5:21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 52.)

Worship: Good Ground Hearers – Revival Day 5 / Wellness: 5 Needs of the Cell

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  “The good-ground hearer receives the word ‘not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God.’ 1 Thessalonians 2:13. Only he who receives the Scriptures as the voice of God speaking to himself is a true learner. He trembles at the word; for to him it is a living reality. He opens his understanding and his heart to receive it. . . . {COL 59.2}

“A knowledge of the truth depends not so much upon strength of intellect as upon pureness of purpose, the simplicity of an earnest, dependent faith. To those who in humility of heart seek for divine guidance, angels of God draw near. The Holy Spirit is given to open to them the rich treasures of the truth. {COL 59.3}
“The good-ground hearers, having heard the word, keep it. Satan with all his agencies of evil is not able to catch it away. {COL 59.4}

[For additional details, please read Matthew 13:8, 23; Mark 10:30; 2:17; Proverbs 9:10Christ’s Object Lessons, COL 58-61, and listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 316, “Live Out Thy Life Within Me.”]  

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that to be healthy, each cell needs oxygen, water, nutrition, waste elimination, and a good defense system.

The cell extracts oxygen from fresh air, exercise, and water. A sufficient supply of water is equivalent to your weight divided in half. Drink that amount in ounces. Drink more if you tend to sweat a lot or talk a lot, says Pastor Flemons.

Cells extract the best nutrition from a pure, whole foods, plant-based diet. Waste elimination keeps cells cleansed of toxins that sicken the body. For that, God has provided five major organs and two tissue systems, called the seven channels of elimination. They are the colon, liver, kidney, skin, and lungs, plus lymph and blood. A good defense system protects each cell from the onslaught of toxins, viruses and bacteria.

Luke 16:10 says that when we are faithful in the least, then we will be faithful in much. When we give the cell, which is the smallest structural unit in the body, what it needs, we will be healthy, says Pastor Flemons.
