Worship: Called to Come Out of Hebrew Church / Wellness: Most People Starve on a Full Stomach

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The close of probation for a church does not refer to the close of probation for a person. A person can grieve the Holy Spirit at any time and close probation for him or her, says Pastor Flemons. Only God knows when a person has done that. It is not our prerogative to know it.

However, the Hebrew Church, once chosen of God, sealed themselves as a nation against the Holy Spirit by their continual official rebellion, their rejection of Jesus as the Messiah, the calling for His crucifixion, and finally the stoning of Stephen. The same is true for others in Scripture. King Saul, once chosen of God, is a perfect example.

Although AD 34 ended the official probationary time for the Jews, Luke 24:47 gives evidence that “repentance and remission of sins should be preached” in the name of Jesus to the Jews, those individuals at Jerusalem first, and then among “all nations.”

Romans 2:28 gives evidence that God recognizes only those who worship Him in the Spirit and in truth. He does not recognize His people simply by status of the natural birth. Even the sons of Aaron the high priest were destroyed because of their rebellion. They grieved the Holy Spirit.

God is teaching that the call that first went out to the Hebrew Church became the call that went out to the Christian church: spiritual Israel. “Literal Jerusalem is no longer honored of God,” says Pastor Flemons. Literal Jerusalem was supposed to have anointed the most Holy. Instead, they “killed the Messiah.” The veil of their temple was then forever rent. God will not be trifled with. It remains that those who honor God, God will honor.

[For additional details, please read Luke 24:47; Acts 1:8; Daniel 9:24; Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6; Romans 2:28; and “The Call to Come Out of the Hebrew Church” in Path to the Throne of God, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 207 original. PTG 280 latest edition. PTG 156 online.) Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 590, “Trust and Obey.”]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that most people are starving on a full stomach. It is because they are not getting enough nutrition in the foods they choose to eat, until they are stuffed. They are filling their stomachs with foods that have calories but no nutritive value. They are eating processed foods, white flour products, oily foods, proteins from animals. This kind of food requires more to be eaten to get the same sensation of fullness that you get from fibrous foods that expand, says Pastor Flemons.

Most of the nutrition is found in fruits and vegetables. That is where the key vitamins and minerals are found that your body needs. Eat more organic whole foods, he says. It’s God’s original diet for mankind, according Genesis 1:29. Be determined to eat real food with real nutrition. Do not settle for calories that just make you feel full.

Worship: Unity in the Church / Wellness: Spiritual Influences in Healing

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Unity reform follows talks by Pastor Flemons on a number of reforms instituted after 1798, when the Dark Ages ended. These reforms included the Bible, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Sanctuary, the Sabbath, Worship, Country Living, as well as Financial, Education, Home, Prophetic, and Faith reforms in his series “Preparation for the Final Crisis.” It’s preparation for Heaven, he says. The prayer of Jesus Christ in John 17, expresses the desire that Christians be one, unified, as are Jesus and His Father.

In part 3 of his talk on unity, Pastor Flemons says that we are our own greatest enemy to unity, as he read these passages from the Spirit of Prophecy:

“It is not the opposition of the world that most endangers the church of Christ. It is the evil cherished in the hearts of believers that works their most grievous disaster and most surely retards the progress of God’s cause. There is no surer way of weakening spirituality than by cherishing envy, suspicion, faultfinding, and evil surmising. On the other hand, the strongest witness that God has sent His Son into the world is the existence of harmony and union among men of varied dispositions who form His church. This witness it is the privilege of the followers of Christ to bear. But in order to do this, they must place themselves under Christ’s command. Their characters must be conformed to His character and their wills to His will.” {Acts of the Apostles, by Ellen G. White, AA 549.1}

“How true are the words of the apostle, ‘Where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.’ One person in an institution or in a church who gives loose rein to unkind thoughts by speaking evil of the brethren, may stir up the worst passions of the human heart, and spread abroad a leaven of evil that will work in all who come into association with him. In this way the enemy of all righteousness gains the victory, and the result of his work is to make of no effect the Saviour’s prayer when He pleaded that His disciples might be one as He is one with the Father (The Review and Herald, March 12, 1895).” {SDA Bible Commentary7BC 937.1}

“Never can the church reach the position that God desires it to reach until it is bound up in sympathy with its missionary workers. Never can the unity for which Christ prayed exist until spirituality is brought into missionary service, and until the church becomes an agency for the support of missions.” {Counsels on Stewardship, by Ellen G. White, CS 47.2}

[For additional details, please read John 17 in full. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang  Hymn 632, “Until Then.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that the Holy Spirit is a powerful influence of healing. Even Jesus healed by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Read John 6:63 and Matthew 12:27, 28.)

What hinders healing is all those things that people tend to pile up between themselves and the Spirit of God from actually working in their lives. Pastor Flemons says, “In our quest for healing, let’s make sure that the five senses are all wrapped up with things that will bring the Holy Spirit and not drive Him away.” That includes a heart that is at peace with God: a happy heart.  Proverbs 17:22 confirms that your attitude is critical to health. “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.

But it is important to realize that all the circumstances of your life may not be correct, he says. That is why the Bible says that we can have that kind of peace that passes all understanding. It is “the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,” that keeps our “hearts and minds through Christ Jesus,” according to Philippians 4:7. Never let anyone discourage you from healing, that your case is beyond hope.  “A living dog is better than a dead lion,” (Ecclesiastes 9:4). From this text comes this principle: “Where there is life, there is hope,” says Pastor Flemons.

Regardless of how hopeless the world may consider your case, God wants you to be healed, if that healing will bring glory to God’s name, says Pastor Flemons, who ended his talk with the Scripture song of Proverbs 17:22: “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.” For it spells FAITH. “According to your faith,” says Jesus, “be it unto you” (Matthew 9:29).

Words of Encouragement

1 Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. (Also read Conflict and Courage for March 30, CC 95.)

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (Also read With God at Dawn for March 30, WGD 91.)

Worship: Holy Spirit Series: What Is the Trinity? / Wellness: How Refined Foods Cause Hypertension

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The word trinity is not in the Bible, says Pastor Flemons, who affirms that he is not a trinitarian. The Bible does make it clear, however, and he does believe, that the Godhead are three persons. As you may have detected, there is a problem.

Just as the term “gay” in the dictionary once had no reference to sexual orientation, definitions change over time, says Pastor Flemons. The term trinity has changed meanings. As a doctrine, the term trinity does mean three, but three in one. Trinitarians believe that God is one God, but “three co-eternal, consubstantial persons,” says Pastor Flemons. This means that they are distinct personalities, but that the three are one substance, like conjoined triplets. Catholicism’s definition of trinity is not simply three. It is the doctrine of three in one–again, as are conjoined twins or triplets. Pastor Flemons adds that those who believe that there are only two beings, God the Father and God the Son, who send forth the Holy Spirit–not as a separate being, but as a conjoined part of the other–are just as Catholic in their doctrine.

Pastor Flemons, who has begun today with this presentation a series of studies on the Holy Spirit, says, “That is not what the Bible teaches.” To begin with, he says, read John 16:13. Clearly, the Holy Spirit is an individual. Consequently, Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) pioneers preached against the doctrine of the trinity as defined by Catholicism. Later, says Pastor Flemons, SDA leaders, under pressure to prove that the SDA Church is not a cult, accepted the use of the term trinity. Nevertheless, the doctrine of SDAs remain Bible-based, as there being three individual personalities.

Read the word of God. You will see that there are three separate beings who are God and who are one as are husband and wife. They have the same family name, as do individual members of a family. They are God: God, the Father; God, the Son; and God, the Holy Spirit.

[For additional details, please listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons.]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, discussed hypertension and consuming refined foods like white flour products. Eating refined foods lead to constipation. This causes toxins to be dumped back into the blood. Because blood passes through the liver for detoxification, a major burden is placed on the liver to rid the body of the excess toxins, says Pastor Flemons. This raises the  pressure of the blood.

Eating refined foods also raises the sugar level too quickly, which then gets dropped too quickly once large amounts of insulin are produced in response to the high sugar level. This activity causes a flight-or-fight mechanism, which creates stress on the adrenal glands, as though you were “attacked by a bear.” The blood vessels constrict. Blood flow is inhibited. Blood pressure is raised.

Finally, eating too many refined foods, including sugar, weakens the immune system. This creates inflammation, which causes a buildup of cholesterol plaque in the arteries. Again, because the arteries are narrowed and blood flow is constricted, blood pressure is raised.

Words of Encouragement

Genesis 13:8, 9  Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou will take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 47.)

Exodus 34:6  And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, long suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth. (Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 43.)

Worship: Sword of the Spirit / Wellness: Curing Sore Throats

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. The word of God is the entire Bible: the Old Testament, as well as the New Testament, from Genesis to Revelation. Jesus, our perfect Example, read only the Old Testament. The New Testament was not written yet, for it is His story. And His story must necessarily include the Old Testament, by which He said, “It is written,” as He did battle with Satan. (Read Luke 4.) The Old Testament today still mandates our diet and lifestyle, proclaims God’s Ten Commandments, and interprets prophecy for us today.

One part of the Bible is no more or less inspired than the other. Therefore, our doctrine must be based upon the entire body of Scripture, not just the part that pleases us, says Pastor Flemons. To neglect or reject any part of it is done to our own hurt or demise before time. The whole Bible is safe to trust. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).

As part of the whole armor of God, the Bible is a two-edged sword that cuts to heal, not only the receiver but the handler. As the receiver is convicted of truth, strengthened, and encouraged in righteousness, so is the handler. In fact, two primary scriptures  (2 Corinthians 7:1 and 2 Peter 1:4 ) tell of the Bible’s ability to perfect our characters. Particularly, the promises found in God’s word cleanses from all filthiness and perfects holiness. By these precious promises in the Word of God, we become partakers of God’s divine nature.

[For additional details, please read Ephesians 6:10-17; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; Luke 4; 1 Corinthians 10:31; Ecclesiastes 7:17; Matthew 5:48; John 17:17; Hebrews 4:12. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 272, “Give Me the Bible.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that sore throats aren’t always as a result of cold weather. They can be the result of several things, including constipation and dehydration. First, make sure that you aren’t constipated. If you are, take care of that first. And he offered natural remedies for keeping the channels of elimination open. But he says staying true to healthy lifestyle is even better than taking remedies.

Healthy lifestyle habits include making sure that you are drinking enough water daily, that you are getting to bed on time, that you are eating a plant-based diet, not eating too much, and are not drinking with your meals or going to bed on a full stomach. This helps keep your immune system strong, which is the key.

If you need additional help getting over a sore throat, Pastor Flemons offered some natural solutions. First, help your body’s immune response of getting white blood cells to the affected area. You do this by wrapping your throat in a cold, wet cotton sock at bedtime. Over the sock, wrap plastic. Saran wrap is fine. Then wrap a wool scarf around the plastic. Just avoid a draft. By the morning, the sock will be warm, and your sore throat will feel better.

Other simpler things you can do is gargle with goldenseal, take echinacea tea, take Rocket Fuel, drink more lemon water, and include more fresh garlic in your diet. Pastor Flemons says warm salt water is good as well. He then gave instruction for doing contrast showers, which he does not advise for the elderly, unless they modify the temperatures so that they are not extremely hot or cold.

Words of Encouragement

Job 12:7-9  But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this? (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 19.)

Psalm 27:8  When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. (Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 15.)

Worship: Sabbath and the Name of God / Wellness: Dangers of Fizzy Drinks

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Pastor Flemons began by quoting Early Writings p. 33 as saying, “The Sabbath was set apart to be kept in honor of God’s holy name.” As name represents character according to Exodus 33:18 and Ex. 34:6,7, Pastor Flemons reminded us that the Sabbath was set apart in honor of God’s character. “Therefore, we are breaking the Sabbath when we exhibit an unchristlike character Sunday through Friday,” says Pastor Flemons. He supported the name – character connection by showing that when character changed, the name of the person or angel often changed. Examples sited were Lucifer (the light-bearer) being changed to Satan (the adversary).  He also mentioned Abram being renamed Abraham and Jacob (the supplanter) being renamed Israel (one who prevailed with God).

Because the Sabbath declares the name of God as “Creator,” Satan has attacked the Sabbath. In his quest to be “like the Most High” according to Isa. 14:14, the devil cannot deny that He is a created being and is thus unlike the Most High.  He would like us to forget that fact so the very commandment that reminds us, he is trying to blot out of our memory.

(For additional details, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Shelem Flemons. Also read Path to the Throne of God, pp. 247, 248 in the newest edition. Also, hear Pastor Flemons sing, Hymn #507, “Moment by Moment.”)

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, read from an article in The Telegraph entitled, “11 Reasons To Renounce Your Fizzy Drink Habit”  The article shared some studies and science that shows the dangers of drinking carbonated beverages loaded with sugar and some with caffeine. Pastor Flemons noted that a lot of the dangers come from the sugar and caffeine. However, he noted that carbonated beverages are high in phosphoric acid, which makes the pH more acidic and tends to leach calcium out of the bones leading to arthritis, osteoporosis, and other conditions. The 11 reasons listed in the article are as follows:

  1. Increased risk of cancer
  2. Increased risk of heart disease
  3. Increased risk of developing diabetes
  4. Increased risk of liver damage
  5. Increased risk of becoming violent
  6. Increased risk of premature birth in pregnancy
  7. Causes negative changes in the brain
  8. Causes premature aging
  9. Causes early puberty
  10. Increase risk of obesity
  11. Increased risk of Alzheimers
