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
