Worship: The Council of Peace / Wellness: Early Breakfast and Diabetes

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Jesus and His Father met to lay the plans for the salvation of mankind before the world was founded. The meeting is referred to as the council of peace. “It was at that sacred council that Christ, the Lamb of God, offered himself as a ransom to redeem him [mankind]. Zech 6:13; GC 416, 417. But all will agree that Christ was not actually slain until the cross.” Still, the Bible refers to Jesus as “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8). In the same way, the sanctuary (both on Earth and in Heaven) itself is the manifestation of that council of peace. And the heavenly sanctuary “could not actually function until after the death, resurrection and ascension of Christ when He was anointed High Priest. Pastor Flemons added that the sweet hour of prayer will be over once we arrive in Heaven. That’s why the song’s last stanza includes the phrase “Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer.” Instead, it will be face to face with Christ, our Savior.

(For further details, listen to the recording and read Zechariah 6:13; Hebrews 9:8; Revelation 13:8; and the GC 416-417.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, discussed the importance of eating an early breakfast, especially if one has diabetes. His presentation was inspired by a health.news article, which reports a newly found relation among “night owls,” obesity and diabetes. He added that an early breakfast is essential to a three-meal day, so that the final meal is finished early enough to have been digested before bedtime. Typically, the night owl eats late meals, which contributes to obesity. Obesity is identified as a body mass index (BMI) of at least 30, which is common to people with Type 2 diabetes. Eating two complete meals daily around 10am and 3pm is best, says Pastor Flemons.

Words of Encouragement

Psalm 37:1-3  Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

1 John 3:1-3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. (Also read SC 15.)

Worship: Persecuted and Blessed / Wellness: Choosing Juicers

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Jesus Christ, the Messiah, was persecuted. Clothed in the garb of humanity, God was persecuted by evil men cloaked with the garb of godliness. The Savior of the world warned his followers that the same would happen to them. (Read more below.)

Wellness: For Health’s Sake  Juicing provides powerful nutrition and alkalinizes the blood, says Pastor Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness and naturopathy. But of all the juicers on the market, which is best? (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement

Colossians 3:23-24  And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the LORD Christ.

Psalm 37:1-3  Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.


For Heaven’s Sake…

The Beatitudes help us understand what should be our attitudes, says Pastor Flemons. When our attitudes are right, we can receive the blessings of the LORD.

Matthew 5:10  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Commenting on this verse in the book Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, Ellen White wrote these inspired words:

“Jesus does not present to His followers the hope of attaining earthly glory and riches, and of having a life free from trial, but He presents to them the privilege of walking with their Master in the paths of self-denial and reproach, because the world knows them not. (MB 29.1)

“While the Lord has not promised His people exemption from trials, He has promised that which is far better. He has said, ‘As thy days, so shall thy strength be.’ ‘My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Deuteronomy 33:25; 2 Corinthians 12:9. If you are called to go through the fiery furnace for His sake, Jesus will be by your side even as He was with the faithful three in Babylon. Those who love their Redeemer will rejoice at every opportunity of sharing with Him humiliation and reproach. The love they bear their Lord makes suffering for His sake sweet.” (MB 30.1)  (The book may be accessed online at this link: http://www.whiteestate.org/books/mb/mb2.html.)

1 Peter 1:7  That the trial of your faith being more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried in fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

For Health’s Sake…

There are entry level juicers. These juicers spin fast. This accelerates oxidation and causes the breakdown of the juice fairly rapidly. Therefore, it is best to consume the juice within 24 hours. Otherwise, nutrition will be lost. Juicers in this category are not the best for juicing leafy vegetables or grasses, like wheat grass. A popular juicer in this category, says Pastor Flemons, is the Jack Lalanne, as well as Black and Decker. These cost around $100.

Costing around $250 (on last check) is the popular Champion juicer. It has a powerful motor that also spins fast. The nutrition in the juices last longer. The Champion has attachments that allow for making butters, spreads, sherbert, and ice creams.

Gear juicers, liker Green Life, Green Star, Green Power, and Omega, don’t spin fast. They pull in and crush as the gears meet. This allows a lot less oxidation and breakdown of juice nutrients. This maintains the nutritive properties up to 3 or 4 days.

The last category is the Cadillac of juicers. The juice lasts up to 4 to 5 days. It makes pulp, which is then placed in its nylon bag and pressed. Juicing this way allows almost no oxidation. Because TOR is frequently dealing with chronic illnesses and at times need to juice daily for a number of people, the Norwalk juicer is best.

Juicing is a wonderful blessing from the Lord, says Pastor Flemons. Blending, he quickly adds, is not the same thing.
