FOOD

 October 24th, 2010 | Author: Douglas

The Bible has instruction as to what a person may eat and what not. Admittedly, Jehovah God firstly specified that certain creatures were not to be eaten. Jehovah God Himself eventually overruled this Law of His. He, however, placed certain restrictions on the eating of meat.

What humans cannot use they annihilate, and eventually that object or creature becomes extinct. To overcome that eventuality, Jehovah God has allowed the eating of all creatures.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL POSTS WILL BE PRECEDED BY THE IMPORTANT WORDS BELOW!

NOT ONLY WILL THE TRULY “WICKED” PEOPLE BE ETERNALLY DESTROYED BUT ALSO ALL THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO OUR CREATOR JEHOVAH GOD! THE ONUS IS ON EACH AND EVERY PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY AND THEIR MINOR CHILDREN ARE ALL ACCEPTABLE! MILLIONS OF “NICE” PEOPLE WERE ALSO ALL DESTROYED IN THE FLOOD OF NOAH’S DAY!

AND

2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 & 6

5 KEEP TESTING WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH, KEEP PROVING WHAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE. OR DO YOU NOT RECOGNISE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN UNION WITH YOU? UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to do Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability!)

All remarks in Italics are also pertinent to the other subjects that have been or will be discussed , and also relevant to the Scripture that is being given now.

Here is the restriction: The meat may not be eaten with its blood, and a strangled creature still has all its blood in it. Jehovah God compares the eating of blood with fornication. Jehovah God IS serious about the intake of another person or creature’s blood into YOUR body, irrespective of the means used. Eating or transfusion – another person or creature’s blood is entering YOUR body. Jehovah God says NO! Let us go to the Bible:

It is a sin to hunt animals for “sporting” reasons, be advised to read the following Scripture:

Deuteronomy 12:15

“Only whenever your soul craves it you may slaughter, and you must eat meat according to the blessing of Jehovah your God that he has given you, inside all your gates. The unclean one and the clean one may eat it, like the gazelle and like the stag. (From this Scripture the hunting of animals or fish or birds for sport is not acceptable to Jehovah God. You may only slaughter “when your soul craves it” should be clear enough for all to understand.)

It is a sin to ban the eating of any food, be advised to read the following Scripture:

1Timothy 4:1 to 5

4 However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons, 2 by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, marked in their conscience as with a branding iron; 3 forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith and accurately know the truth. 4. The reason for this is that every creation of God is fine, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is sanctified through God’s word and prayer over [it].

IN OUR WORLD OF TODAY JEHOVAH GOD HAS NO REAL MEANING OR STANDING WITH THE VAST MAJORITY OF HUMANS  SO IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE FOR A PERSON TO RAISE HIS GLASS IN A TOAST TO SOME OR OTHER RELIGIOUS OBJECT, AND EVEN POSSIBLY JOCULARLY SO, AND THEN THE CONTENTS OF THOSE GLASSES ARE DEFILED. THE SAME IF SOMETHING SIMILAR OCCURS WITH FOOD. THEN NEITHER THE DRINK NOR FOOD SHOULD BE ACCEPTED OR TAKEN INTO YOUR BODY.

Let us now see what God’s Word, the Holy Bible States about Food:

Genesis   9:3 & 4

3 Every moving animal that is alive may serve as food for you. 4 Only flesh with its soul – its blood – you must not eat. (Take note – a soul can be eaten – the Bible says so! So a “soul” is tangible and cannot just leave or flit out of the body as false religion so keenly advocates.)

Leviticus 11:10

And everything in the seas and the torrents that has no fins and no scales, out of every swarming creature of the waters and out of every living soul that is in the waters, they are a loathsome thing to you. (This Law amended by Jehovah God as shown in Deuteronomy 12:15  just below, and  Mark 7:19 shown shortly below.)

Deuteronomy 12:15

Only whenever your soul craves it you may slaughter, and you must eat meat according to the blessing of Jehovah your God that he has given you, inside all your gates. The unclean one and the clean one may eat it, like the gazelle and like the stag. (From this Scripture the hunting of animals or fish or birds for sport is not acceptable to Jehovah God. You may only slaughter “when your soul craves it” should be clear enough for all to understand.)

Mark 7:15

There is nothing from outside a man that passes into him that can defile him; but the things that issue forth out of a man are the things that defile a man.” (Not what a person eats defiles him, but that which he speaks certainly can.)

Mark 7:19 & 20

19 since it passes, not into [his] heart, but into [his] intestines, and it passes out into the sewer?”  Thus He declared all foods clean. 20 Further, he said: “That which issues forth out of a man is what defiles a man;

Luke 24:42

And they handed him a piece of broiled fish;

Acts 10:14 & 15

14 But Peter said: “Not at all, Lord, because never have I eaten anything defiled and unclean.” 15. And the voice [spoke] again to him, the second time: “You stop calling defiled the things God has cleansed.”

Acts 15:20

20 but to write them to abstain from things polluted by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood. (Any food or liquid that has been given or taken that has been dedicated to any other object or action, and not to Jehovah God in the proper context, is defiled. The actions include sport, religious activities or ceremonies based on heathen beginnings, etc. Objects include national flags and emblems, items carved from wood, or cast from cement or metal, etc.)

Acts 15:29

29 to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication. If YOU carefully keep yourselves from these things, YOU will prosper. Good health to YOU!” (The “taking in of blood” especially in the form of blood transfusion has caused many, many deaths and how many other infections and diseases and therefore it is no wonder that the Scripture that states abstaining from blood is ended off with the words: “Good health to you”. Over and above that however, is that it is a very important command from Jehovah God Who created us and knows of other problems that taking blood will cause. Another one that I as a mere human can think of is the evil and tremendous “money-spinner” that the sinning known as blood transfusions has become. Every now and then all kinds of rumours surface stating that drugs and prostitution are also used to obtain blood from the addicts. Make no mistake, the money that is obtained for the blood transfusion is in my opinion MOSTLY the REAL and TRUE motivation for the advocating of the necessity of blood transfusions. Also, preventing the spilling of blood has taken a very backward place to the necessity of blood transfusions. Road accidents have become a tremendous money-spinner as well. Human life has very little sacredness as far as humans in general are concerned.” Abstaining from things sacrificed to idols” gives one a clear conscience if you know about Jehovah God’s command and you comply. That will also add to your good health!)

Acts 21:25

As for the believers from among the nations, we have sent out, rendering our decision that they should keep themselves from what is sacrificed to idols as well as from blood and what is strangled and from fornication.”

1 Corinthians 8:7

Nevertheless, there is not this knowledge in all persons; but some, being accustomed until now to the idol, eat food as something sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. (There are billions of people that adhere to false religious teachings and also actually know very little about the TRUE contents the Bible. So they do not consider Jehovah God at all when eating of the foods which sustain their lives physically.)

1 Corinthians 10:28

But if anyone should say to YOU: “This is something offered in sacrifice,” do not eat on account of the one that disclosed it and on account of conscience.

1Timothy 4:1 to 5

4 However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons, 2 by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, marked in their conscience as with a branding iron; 3 forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith and accurately know the truth. 4. The reason for this is that every creation of God is fine, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is sanctified through God’s word and prayer over [it].
