Worship: How to Study the Bible, Part 4 / Wellness: How to Relieve Stress with Diet

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Having discussed studying the Bible precept upon precept, next was line upon line.  “Line upon line,” means word upon word, says Pastor Flemons, as he quoted Psalm 19:1-4, after asking two important questions: What shape is the earth? And What shape is the world?

If you see a Scripture, he says, read the text above it and below it. Never isolate a verse and pull it away from its context. Using Acts 10:1-6, 9-19, and verse 28, he illustrated what happens when you fail to do that and why you shouldn’t. It’s about our attitude, as well, he says. Isaiah 29:13 lets us know that our attitude determines our altitude in understanding  God’s Word.

In its teachings, the Bible is consistent from Genesis to Revelation, says Pastor Flemons. We just need to be humble and be willing to follow wherever Christ leads, even if it means leaving our mother church.

[For additional details, please read Isaiah 28:10 and Isaiah 29:13. Also, listen to the recording to hear the commentary of Pastor Flemons, who sang Hymn 271, “Break Thou the Bread of Life.”]

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that you can relieve stress with diet. A diet of sugary foods causes the body to assume and remain in a fight-or-flight state of being. The body can endure long abuse. However, over time abuse debilitates the body. Blood pressure is raised. Heart rate is increased. Muscles remain tense.

The way out is a total plant-based, whole foods diet, says Pastor Flemons. He says you should eat lots of raw foods, lots of vegetables, and whole grains. Vary the grains, he says. Especially include quinoa and millet and cous cous. They are high in the B vitamins, he says.

He also advises eating lots of sprouts. He specifically named alfalfa sprouts, but encourages eating other kinds of sprouts as well. By all means, however, you must stop eating sugary foods. Even naturally sweetened fruits may need to be avoided until the body has been reset.

Chia seeds in grape juice is a wonderful treat and way to include the omegas in the diet. Omegas also reduce stress. Pastor Flemons shared a quick and easy recipe for gelling chia seeds in grape juice or in a stevia sweetened lemonade for those with sugar restrictions. He says, “It’s delicious!”

Sharing Time  Pastor Flemons responded to a question regarding forsaking the assembly of God’s people and worship at home.

Special Prayer  Please include in your prayers today listener 3039, who asked that we pray God’s blessings and intervention with her health challenge, her children, and with everyone on the line.

Words of Encouragement

Genesis 28:12  And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.  (Also read Conflict and Courage, CC 64.)

Ephesians 5:2  And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. (Also read With God at Dawn, WGD 60.)

Worship: Beaten Gold / Wellness: Start Young

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  The candlestick in the holy place of the sanctuary was made of one solid piece of pure beaten gold. It was the “most costly” and “most elaborate of the sacred vessels and represents those whom Jesus is purifying and refining to perfection. “It required many a skillful blow to shape all the details of its ornaments.” In similar fashion, Christ was ‘wounded for our transgression; He was bruised for our iniquities.” And “‘all who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.’ 2 Timothy 3:12. It is trial that purifies the church and fits it to be the light of the world.”

Those who “suffer with him they shall also reign with him in his glory. This experience of suffering for Christ’s sake is absolutely essential to the spiritual life of the Christian. There can be no true, vital godliness without seasons of trial and grief. We are chosen in the furnace of affliction, and the trial of our faith is more precious than gold.” (ST Jan 13, 1888)

[For additional details, please read Exodus 25:31, 36; Isaiah 53:5; 2 Timothy 3:12; Signs of the Times, ST Jan 13, 1888; GW 269.3; and “The Gold Was Beaten” in The Path to the Throne of God: The Sanctuary, by Sarah Elizabeth Peck. (PTG 140 original; PTG 193 new edition; PTG 106, 107 online) Also please listen to the recording.]

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, read a health.news article that promotes the early training of healthy habits to children as young as 6 for a better quality of life.

Such promotional efforts are not too soon, as the latest data reported by “the World Health Organization estimates that over 41 million children under the age of five are overweight.” Consequently, young children are put “at risk of complications such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep problems, and asthma, but it can also negatively impact their self-esteem, which can cause mental health problems and a reduced quality of life later on. This can even lead to a lifelong condition . . . which increases the likelihood of certain cancers, stroke, and shorter life expectancy.”

Currently, says Pastor Flemons, he is in California on a mission to help a 9-year-old with lupus.

Remember to continue praying for the entire TOR broadcast family, that GOD will be free to bless us in the way that HE really wants to in 2018. Thank you!
