Worship: For Heaven’s Sake “It’s all about the law of God,” says Pastor Flemons. The devil hates God’s law and wants us to hate it too, and he wants to convince us it cannot be kept. “If Jesus Christ came in our fallen nature, yet without sin, we can definitely keep the law.” (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement
2 Chronicles 20:20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
Psalm 34:11-14 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

We are commanded to walk as Jesus walked, for He is our example. Many people, even theologians, believe that because Jesus is divine, he had an advantage over us in dealing with sin and sinful desires. But the Bible is clear.
Although fully divine, Jesus was fully human and was in “all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” according to Hebrews 4:15. In fact, He was tempted beyond what we can imagine. As a human being, He had full access to divine power to control every situation and to destroy any and everything as though it never existed, but He had to resist even the very thought of using any divine power to which humanity had no access. That took a kind of resistance no human can know. As a human, He only used that which is available to all humanity in dealing with sin and sinful desires.
God in the flesh is a mystery according to 1 Timothy 3:16, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” Therefore, no man can truly understand everything about the nature of Christ.
Adam and Eve lived in the world before sin entered the world and so they were created without the natural proclivity toward sin. They did not have to battle sinful desire such as every human being today. Jesus, however divine was His birth, took on humanity in all of its meaning.
Hebrews 2:14, 16-18 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; … For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
Christ came in total human flesh, states Pastor Flemons. He was tempted just like every human being. No human being is or was more human than He. He lived a sinless life because of His deep love for His heavenly Father and for the salvation of all mankind. So may we live as He lived. “All His biddings are enablings” (COL 333.1).
You say, How is this possible? Again, the Bible is clear.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from your lungs. People who have bronchitis often cough up thickened mucus, which can be discolored. Bronchitis may be either acute or chronic.
Any “itis” is an infection or inflammation of the area. Bronchitis is caused by breathing in toxins; by eating an acid diet, causing excessive mucus; by smoking or breathing in smoke secondhand; and by shallow-breathing.
You want to insure that you breathe deeply and breathe in pure fresh air. Pastor Flemons demonstrates by talking you through a deep-breathing exercise. Listen to the recording for the details. And stay tuned for suggested natural remedies for overcoming bronchitis.
