Worship: When a Church Proves Unfaithful / Wellness: Just Because You Don’t Feel Bad. . .

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  God will always have a church to represent Him and to do His mission. But the Hebrew Church failed in their mission to the world. They went so far that they failed even to recognize the Messiah. Instead of hailing Him as Savior and King, they persecuted Him and killed Him, because His rightdoing opposed their traditions.

“When doing what is right brings about persecution,” leave as did Christ, who could no longer walk among Jewry. Read John 7:1, says Pastor Flemons, who shared the following statement and discussed the support of God’s work.

The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life, He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His work. When a church proves unfaithful to the word of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities. But if these in turn do not purify their lives from every wrong action; if they do not establish pure and holy principles in all their borders, then the Lord will grievously afflict and humble them, and, unless they repent, will remove them from their place and make them a reproach.” {14MR 102.1}

When God opens up other channels for carrying out His mission, these channels must be supported as His church. In that regard, Pastor read a number of other published writings regarding the returning of tithes to support medical missionary work, what defines the church of God, and the principles of Protestantism from the Protest of the Princes.

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, shared a biblical principle all would do well to consider. Ecclesiastes 8:11 says, “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.”

In other words, just because you don’t feel bad right away when you eat a piece of meat or dairy product or delectable sugary treat, that doesn’t mean that a payday isn’t coming. Don’t be like those the text speaks of, says Pastor Flemons. Just because it doesn’t make you feel bad immediately, don’t be determined to continue doing harm to your body.
