Words of Encouragement
1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Proverbs 16:20 He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: And whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.
For Heaven’s Sake…
We are never to compromise to gain favor. Compromising to gain favor is dangerous. It can cause imprisonment. That’s how Paul was imprisoned. What he did was not morally wrong. It was just not what God authorized him to do.
“Many of the Jews who had accepted the gospel still cherished a regard for the ceremonial law and were only too willing to make unwise concessions, hoping thus to gain the confidence of their countrymen, to remove their prejudice, and to win them to faith in Christ as the world’s Redeemer. Paul realized that so long as many of the leading members of the church at Jerusalem should continue to cherish prejudice against him, they would work constantly to counteract his influence. He felt that if by any reasonable concession he could win them to the truth he would remove a great obstacle to the success of the gospel in other places. But he was not authorized of God to concede as much as they asked. AA 405.1
“When we think of Paul’s great desire to be in harmony with his brethren, his tenderness toward the weak in the faith, his reverence for the apostles who had been with Christ, and for James, the brother of the Lord, and his purpose to become all things to all men so far as he could without sacrificing principle–when we think of all this, it is less surprising that he was constrained to deviate from the firm, decided course that he had hitherto followed. But instead of accomplishing the desired object, his efforts for conciliation only precipitated the crisis, hastened his predicted sufferings, and resulted in separating him from his brethren, depriving the church of one of its strongest pillars, and bringing sorrow to Christian hearts in every land. AA 405.2
“On the following day Paul began to carry out the counsel of the elders. The four men who were under the Nazarite vow (Numbers 6), the term of which had nearly expired, were taken by Paul into the temple, ‘to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.’ Certain costly sacrifices for purification were yet to be offered. AA 406.1
“Those who advised Paul to take this step had not fully considered the great peril to which he would thus be exposed. At this season, Jerusalem was filled with worshipers from many lands. As, in fulfillment of the commission given him by God, Paul had borne the gospel to the Gentiles, he had visited many of the world’s largest cities, and he was well known to thousands who from foreign parts had come to Jerusalem to attend the feast. Among these were men whose hearts were filled with bitter hatred for Paul, and for him to enter the temple on a public occasion was to risk his life. For several days he passed in and out among the worshipers, apparently unnoticed; but before the close of the specified period, as he was talking with a priest concerning the sacrifices to be offered, he was recognized by some of the Jews from Asia. AA 406.2
“With the fury of demons they rushed upon him, crying, ‘Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men everywhere against the people, and the law, and this place.’ And as the people responded to the call for help, another accusation was added–‘and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place.'”
Paul was recognized, targeted and imprisoned as a result of the compromise he made. From his experience, we learn that we must look at the long-range implications of our actions, even if unpopular. We must stand for truth, even if we are alienated. Still, we must know that God will take care of us, if we make missteps, even though our hearts are right. When we work for God, we must always be willing to sacrifice. We must be like a bullock. We may be called to plow or die. We must be ready for either. Above and through it all, we must trust God and allow the Holy Spirit to be our Guide.

For Health’s Sake…
Parasites, and other living organisms like bacteria and fungi, eat, drink and defecate in your body and wreak havoc in your system.
If you are on a diet of flesh foods that includes pork and beef, even chicken and fish, parasites can enter the digestive tract and cause fibromyalgia. Life can feel like a miserable wreck. The answer to regain normalcy must be a course that is done “slowly and systematically,” says Pastor Flemons.
Food grade diatomaceous earth (DE) will kill the exoskeletal critters. So will colloidal silver and pau d’arco. Then coffee enemas must be done to help expel them. However, you must begin with small amounts of coffee. Too much will cause the parasites to react too violently, thereby causing greater agitation to the host: you. Changing your diet is critical. Go on a meatless, sugarless diet. For a time, avoid fruits and starches as well. Concentrate on consuming green foods.
Additionally, TOR has a candida parasite cleanse formula that is recommended. Also take oil of oregano. Do a colon cleanse. Take TOR’s Supertonic Superfood for nutrition. Pastor Flemons says a similar treatment is required for lyme disease. Listen to the recording for additional details.
