Have you even heard someone say if the Cancer doesn’t kill you the treatment will. Well all I can say is that I am living proof of it. If you been here before on Restoring Gods Truth and read some of my sermons you will find that I am a cancer survivor. The year 2002 was not a very good year for me; sometime in early March 2002 my brother went fishing and somehow got in a bad storm and fell out of his boat and died. Second in mid July my Boss at work who I been with for almost 23 years died of heart failure, and worse of all in November of the same year my wife and I found out that I had cancer.
My cancer is called Nasopharyngeal or NPC for short, Nasopharyngeal cancer is a cancer that starts in the nasopharynx, the upper part of the throat behind the nose and near the base of skull. I was told by my doctors that it was a rare cancer to get here in the US, but I find that not to be true as I have many friends on CSN who have had the same cancer as I do but not as many times as I had. I did all the requited treatments to get rid of the cancer but in 2004 when doing a PET scans it showed that my NPC was back for a rematch. My doctors all told me that because I was in good health my body would be able to handle a second treatment of radiation with chemo. It would be hard on me but the doctors all felt if I had any chance of surviving this would be the way to go.
After a lot radiation & chemo treatments that almost killed me by the grace of God I made it until May of 2006 when my NPC came back again a 3rd time. This time all my doctors could do was to try more chemo but even with that I would only be giving a little less than 12 months at best to live. I did not want any more treatment; if it was time for me to go to sleep (Die) then I was ready. But through all my trails and treatments for cancer I became closer to my God and the closer you get to God the more you see what Sin really is.
Let us Pray
Like it or not we are all dying, in fact from the point of conception we start the dyeing process long before we are born into this world. There is a disease in our world that will kill every person, that disease is called Sin.
It was never Gods intent that man should die, He God created the first man to live forever and from the man He also created man a helpmate called Woman because she was taking from the man. 1 Corinthians 11:8&9 8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. In the Garden of Eden where God created the first man from the dust of the ground and breathe into him the breath of life, and man became a living soul. But man was not created to die he was created to live forever. Genesis: 2: 7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
But something went wrong with Gods plan, how could this be God knows everything; God knows the end from the very beginning. God never intended it to be this way but for love to be true love it has to be willing to let go and have freedom of choice.
God made every provision for mankind’s happiness, He gave man anything and everything he wanted or needed to be happy. But to test man and see if man also loved his creator, God told them not to eat of just one tree.
There was nothing different about this one tree, in fact there were many of the same type of fruit trees in the garden. Man did not know what hunger was because of so much food that God provided in the garden for them every day; so why would man ever want to even come close to this one tree. Genesis: 2: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Why would anyone want to give up paradise for this world of sickness, hunger, war and sin. That is exactly what happened, open your Bible to Genesis: 3
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
So far so good but now comes the Cancer, hear what Satan says
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
God said you will surely die and Satan says you will not surely die, who do you believe?
How clever of the old serpent, to mix into Gods truth just a small little lie. This is why we need to be careful of believing anything we hear, just because some great leader is preaching something that sounds good that does not make it truth. We need to study Gods word for ourselves just to make sure it is the real truth and not mixed with a little white lie.
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Now Satan tells the truth, yes God knows that the day you eat of this fruit your eyes will be open but because of disobedience not love and disobedience is Sin and what does the Bible say about the soul that sins. Ezekiel 18: 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die.
God did not want for man to ever know what sickness, sufferance, and death was, all this would come as a part of man disobeying God and eating of this one tree. God knew what was best for mankind and He did everything possible to show His love to both Adam & Eve. But it would be on one condition; they must love and trust Him.
Now after Eve had eating of the tree she goes running to Adam
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Adam could not see how God could fix this problem and Adam did not want Eve to die. Here Adam sinned twice, he sinned first by eating of the tree and then he sinned twice by loving Eve more than loving his creator God. Matthew: 10: 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
Matthew 22: 37 Jesus said unto him, “‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Had Adam just waited and put things into Gods hand how different our world would have been. But once the Cancer of Sin came into our world it will not stop until it has killed everything.
No one knows what God would have done if just Eve had sinned and not Adam. I heard a preacher say that Jesus would have died just for Eve if she was the only one who sinned. Maybe and maybe not but Eve was not the problem it was Adam, because to Adam was giving dominion of this earth. So when Adam sinned he handed over dominion of this world to Satan.
Matthew: 6: 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Do you now see how the Cancer of Sin came into our world and how it is killing this world and killing everything God has created.
Is there any hope for man; is there any hope for our children, the answer is Yes there is hope and that hope for the cure of this Sin problem is found only in Jesus.
Unlike my treatment for NPC cancer where I had to undergo radiation and chemo treatment in hopes that it would kill the cancer and get rid of it forever. Jesus had to step into our place so that the Sin cancer would kill Him and not the ones who by faith believed in Him.
Romans: 5:8 But God commendeth His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
But how and why, why would God want to die in my place. Why would the creator of all things give up His life for someone like me?
The answer to this question is found in John: 3:
16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Hard to believe that the creator God loved man so much that rather than destroying man when he sinned He would step in and die in his place. But why did anyone have to die at all.
You see there is a Law that governs all things, we have laws but they are manmade. God also has Laws that govern all things and like Him they are eternal, there is a law of gravity that says what goes up must come down and a law that keeps the earth and moon from colliding together. There is also a law that says if you sin you must die.
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
Man had sinned and the law said that the soul that did the sinning had to die. This is why God warned Adam & Eve saying that if they ate of the fruit of this one tree they would die. Because the law said if they sinned the soul that did the sinning would die.
But God did something totally unexpected before the entire universe, He God would take mans sin upon Himself and die in man place so that man could be taking back into communion with his creator. But it too would need to come by faith and too all who would believe in Gods Son Jesus Christ.
18: For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God
21: For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
27: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
Wow what love God must have for His creation; Satan represents God’s law of love as a law of selfishness. He declares that it is impossible for us to obey its precepts. The fall of our first parents, with all the woe that has resulted, he charges upon the God the Creator, leading men to look upon God as the author of sin, and suffering, and death.
But Jesus was to unveil this deception. As one of us He was to give an example of obedience to all mankind. For this He took upon Himself our nature, and passed through our experiences. Heb. 2:17 “In all things it behooved Him to be made like unto His brethren.
If we had to bear anything which Jesus did not endure, then upon this point Satan would represent the power of God as insufficient for us. Therefore Jesus was Hebrew 4:15 “in all points tempted like as we are.”
He endured every trial to which we are subject. And He exercised in His own behalf no power that is not freely offered to us. As man, He met temptation, and overcame in the strength that was given Him from God. He says, Ps. 40:8 “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy law is within My heart.”
As He went about doing good, and healing all who were afflicted by Satan, He made plain to men the character of God’s law and the nature of His service. His life testifies that it is possible for us also to obey the law of God.
By His humanity, Christ touched humanity; by His divinity, He lays hold upon the throne of God. As the Son of man, He gave us an example of obedience; as the Son of God, He gives us power to obey. It was Christ who from the burning bush on Mount Horeb spoke to Moses saying, “I AM THAT I AM. . . . Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Ex. 3:14. I AM hath sent me unto you.”
This was the pledge of Israel’s deliverance. So when He came “in the likeness of men,” He declared Himself the I AM. The Child of Bethlehem, the meek and lowly Saviour, is God “manifest in the flesh.” 1 Tim. 3:16. And to us He says: “I AM the Good Shepherd.” “I AM the living Bread.” “I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.” John 10:11; 6:51; 14:6; Matt. 28:18. I AM the assurance of every promise. I AM; be not afraid. “God with us” is the surety of our deliverance from sin, the assurance of our power to obey the law of heaven.
In stooping to take upon Himself humanity, Christ revealed a character the opposite of the character of Satan. But He stepped still lower in the path of humiliation. Phil. 2:8″Being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”.
Christ took the form of a servant, and offered sacrifice, Himself the priest, Himself the victim. Isa. 53:5. “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him.”
Christ was treated as we deserve, that we might be treated as He deserves. He was condemned for our sins, in which He had no share, that we might be justified by His righteousness, in which we had no share.
He suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which was His. “With His stripes we are healed.” By His life and His death, Christ has achieved even more than recovery from the ruin wrought through sin.
It was Satan’s purpose to bring about an eternal separation between God and man; but in Christ we become more closely united to God than if we had never fallen. In taking our nature, the Saviour has bound Himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken. Through the eternal ages He is linked with us. John 3:16 “God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son.”.
He gave Him not only to bear our sins, and to die as our sacrifice; He gave Him to the fallen race. To assure us of His immutable counsel of peace, God gave His only-begotten Son to become one of the human family, forever to retain His human nature. This is the pledge that God will fulfill His word.
Isa. 9:6 “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder.” God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. It is the “Son of man” who shares the throne of the universe. It is the “Son of man” whose name shall be called,. “Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
The I AM is the Daysman between God and humanity, laying His hand upon both. He who is Heb. 7:26 “holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,” Heb. 2:11is not ashamed to call us brethren.;. In Christ the family of earth and the family of heaven are bound together. Christ glorified is our brother. Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite Love.
Of His people God says, Zech. 9:16, 17. “They shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon His land. For how great is His goodness, and how great is His beauty!”
The exaltation of the redeemed will be an eternal testimony to God’s mercy. “In the ages to come Eph. 2:7; 3:10, 11 ,” He will “show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.” “To the intent that . . . unto the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places might be made known . . . the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Through Christ’s redeeming work the government of God stands justified. The Omnipotent One is made known as the God of love. Satan’s charges are refuted, and his character unveiled.
Rebellion can never again arise. Sin can never again enter the universe. Through eternal ages all are secure from apostasy. By love’s self-sacrifice, the inhabitants of earth and heaven are bound to their Creator in bonds of indissoluble union.
The work of redemption will be complete. In the place where sin abounded, God’s grace much more abounds. The earth itself, the very field that Satan claims as his, is to be not only ransomed but exalted.
Our little world, under the curse of sin the one dark blot in His glorious creation, will be honored above all other worlds in the universe of God. Here, where the Son of God tabernacle in humanity; where the King of glory lived and suffered and died,–here, when He shall make all things new, the tabernacle of God shall be with men, “and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.” And through endless ages as the redeemed walk in the light of the Lord, they will praise Him for His unspeakable Gift of Love.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
In this world both the Cancer and the Treatment will kill you I am living proof of that, my body is wasting away little by little every day, pain & suffering, but not from the cancer, from the treatment that was to save me.
But with Jesus He took my cancer of sin and placed it upon Himself and the only side effect will be eternal life with Him in a new world that will never see sickness, suffering, cancer, or death; All that will die with this old earth.
Ephesians 2: 8: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
God Bless you my friend
Elder Tim McNab
Restoring Gods Truth
Did you ever hear someone say these words to you before?
What do they really mean?
I have heard a lot of different sermons on this subject, but my question is this what does the Bible and the Bible only say about food?
We hear everyday someone preaching on the Radio or we see them on the TV, and most of the time what they are saying really sounds good. They are even giving Scriptures to back up the opinion that was made.
But you know what, “I found that you could take the bible and use a few scriptures and make it say whatever you want it to say”. “Is that not what satin does all the time?”
Because we form our own opinion about a subject, or because we were tart a subject in a way that you could never see truth, unless the Holy Spirit is your guide.
Well we are going to look at what the Bible say about Food, not what I say or the preacher on the Radio said about it.
We will let Gods book speak for itself on the matter.
First of all we need some rules:
The Bible and the Bible alone will interpret itself, it does not need mans help!
If in doubt see rule #1
How should we study the word of God?
First Let’s have Prayer:
You should never open the word of God with out first asking for his spirit to guide you into all truth
If you find something hard to understand you should never give up and except what the world said about it, keep searching till you understand the meaning.
We are going to jump in head first by looking at the Book of Leviticus:
I will be using a lot of Scripture today and it may not be possible for you to keep up, so if you like I will make available free of charge to anyone a copy of this sermon.
1: And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
2: Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
Here we have God saying to Moses, I am going to show you something Moses if you want to live a better life and a longer life, do what I tell you. There are beasts I have created that are ok to eat and there are beasts that are not ok to eat.
I am going to show you that there is a different between them.
3: Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
No need to be a professor to understand what that just said, right. God did say that what is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud among the beasts (Mammals) are OK to use as food. Is that clear?
4: Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
5: And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
7: And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud;he is unclean to you.
God said that all Mammals as described above are not clean and you should not eat them. Is that clear?
Now God goes on to tell Moses the same thing is true of all I created in the Sea
9: These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
10: And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
When God said something is an Abomination people need to wake-up a smell the Coffee.
What is another word for Abomination, “eyesore, loathe, abhorrence, repulsive, detestation” do you kind of get the picture God was painting about what he thinks of man eating these things.
God said Moses I am not finish yet there is more we have to talk about things that fly.
13: And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
14: And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
15: Every raven after his kind;
16: And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,
17: And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
18: And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,
19: And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
20: All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.
These are all birds of pray and God said don’t eat them, they are not good for food.
21: Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;
22: Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
I don’t know of anyone standing in line for a grasshopper burger, are better yet a grasshopper burger toped with locust. But God said there were clean and OK to use as food.
Matt 3: 4
And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
God goes on talking to Moses he said.
23: But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
God also told Moses, I created a Dog to be man best friend not on his plate for lunch.
27: And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.
42: Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
Look good at the next scripture:
Who is telling us this “ Can man change what God said !
44: For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
God’s gave these requirements to His people His holy people. Back then God’s holy people were the Jews. Today God’s holy people are His true followers
We are not to believe that our bodies are ours to do what we please, our body belongs to God and they are giving to us for a short time here on Earth.
45: For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
46: This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:
Why do you think God gave us laws? If you know that giving your children too much food with sugar in it will make then sick, what do you tell them. Do you not make rules or Laws of what they can or can’t eat? God is no different; He knows what is good for our bodies and what is bad.
47: To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.
Are we still to obey these old laws today; this is the big question.
We here a lot of Christian preachers saying that they are out dated, they were for the Jew only, we Christian are not under the law so they don’t apply to us today.
Is that Scripturally True:
Let’s keep going to find the true answer to the question, remember I am not going to give you my opinion of the subject, I am going to give you all of what the word of God said on the subject and you will draw your own conclusion.
There is nothing I dislike more then hearing a preacher read the word of God and then say well it don’t really mean that it mean this, are it was for these people and not us, we are different.
Were the Jewish people, Gods holy people?
Careful of what you say now, are we today Gods holy people?
What makes the different!
They were Gods people then, and we are Gods people now, they were the church then, we are the church now.
The only different is the Cross of Jesus. They looked forward to the Cross; we look back at the Cross.
Lets doing a little digging here and go back to creation.
Does the word Meat mean Flesh food in the Bible? Let’s look at Genesis: 1: 29: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Does any one need a preacher to understand what we just read? What we read is God gave to man his food, and it was not the beasts’ (animals) of the earth, it was the fruit or meat of the fruit as the Bible calls it.
For this reason you will find many Christians who are vegetarian and not meat eaters.
The diet of man was altered after Sin entered into the Human family and man became so wicked that God had to make an end.
5: And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6: And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7: And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
We are not going into the book of Noah, because of time; let’s just take a look at what happen.
We know that God told Noah to build an Ark because he was going to destroy the earth with a flood. God gave Noah the plan for the size of the Ark, why because he knew it would have to hold a pair of all the beasts of the earth.
Lets pickup on the story where God is calling the animals and they are going into the Ark.
19: And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
20: Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
Let’s dig a little deeper here into what is happing right here.
2: Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
Did we just read that right, did God say Clean beast by sevens and un-clean by two.
Did God make a distinction between what animals were clean and unclean back in the time of Noah?
So why do we here men preaching telling us we don’t have to worry about those old Laws, we can eat anything we want, just put a little more gravy on it. It is ok to eat what God said is an abomination
Were those laws for the Jew only and not for us today? Was Noah a Jew?
We have the same problem with the Sabbath, God said Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Preachers are saying that was for the Jew not for us, we can worship God on any day we want.
But yet we find God resting on the Sabbath in Genesis.
1: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2: And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3: And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested
We here preacher saying the Sabbath was for the Jews only, yet we find God gave it to our first parents Adam & Eve, Were they Jewish ?
God said Remember the Sabbath day, man said No Forget it, we go to church on Sunday. Who are you going to believe; God or your preacher?
God knew that all the vegetation would be destroyed on the earth, and he knew man would need to eat, so he permitted man to eat the clean beasts of Earth.
It was not Gods intended food for man; he did not create our body to consume Flesh food. It was only a substitute after man Sinned.
This is the 3rd time we find God lowing the Food standard for man, did you know that.
Let’s look at the Facts
Genesis 1: 29
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
This is the first and best food God gave to Mankind, Is this correct, their more, lets look
And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Did you understand what we just read, in the garden there was a Tree of Life, this with the fruit of other trees was Man Food. The perfect mixture that could keep the bodies God created running forever and ever and ever.
Did you know that in each of us God created our bodies to repair themselves. It’s all there inside us; the problem is we no longer have access to the perfect mixture of food that was in Gods plan for man, Why. “SIN”
Science today has discovered that the body uses different compounds to aid in repairing itself. It get these compounds by the food we eat, it brakes down the food and absorbs the chemical. Then it uses the chemical in a microscopy way to aid in the repair of cells. But they all agree on one thing. That there is one Chemical Missing and they have no idea what one that one is. Could it be the Fruit we can’t get anymore “the Tree of Life”
Look at the next scripture:
Genesis 2: 17
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
So there was a Tree that gave Life, and a Tree that gave Death, would anyone like to guess which Tree man chose.
That’s correct we chose Death,
So we know the Hi octane food needed for man to live forever was removed because we chose to die rather then live.
What did God do next!
17: And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18: Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
God never intended for man to eat the herb of the field, or vegetables of the earth, that was our choice; guess what happens when you no longer had access to the Food God made for you.
Genesis 5: 5
And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
- God created hi octane fuel for our body “ Tree of Life and the Fruit of the trees in the garden”. We will call this No# 1 Premium grade Fuel. If your body is running on this is will run forever.
- God substituted man food after sin interned by taking away the Tree of life and giving him the Vegetables as well as the Fruit of the tree. We will call this No#2 Medium grade Fuel. And man life went from Forever to about 900 years.
- After the Flood we again find God substituted man food by giving him permission to eat the clean beasts of the Earth. We will call this No#3 Low grade Fuel. And again what happen, man life went from 900 years to 500 to 300 to 200 to 125 to 70 years. Its all in the Bible read it.
All I want to do here is give you the facts from the Word of God and not my own opinion
Are we what we eat or do we eat what we are.
Now I am going to ask you to form your own opinion on this one.
If God gave permission to eat the low-grade #3 fuel “Clean Animal”
What would you call the Un-clean Animal; Extreme low grade #4 or #5 Fuel, now you understand why God said don’t eat them they are an abomination to you, “Don’t even touch them”
I hear a lot of good Christian people saying, in the New Testament we are told we can eat anything we want. Well that great my friend but you will never find that Scripture that said you can eat anything unless you take it out of the content it was written in.
Why because God’s people are still Gods people today, from Adam to Noah to Moses and the Jews and you and me who by Faith in Jesus are grafted in to the true vine.
God gave his Laws to our first Parents, and told there Children 2500 years later to Remember them. 1500 years later he came to this Earth to prove he Loves us and even died showing it.
As a Christian I can eat anything I want to eat, but I choose Gods way because I know that he would want me to keep this body running in good condition for as long as possible.
1Cor:6:19: What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
My body is the temple where Gods Holy Spirit lives and I want to put only what God said to put in it. If the so called old laws were good enough for Gods people back then, they are good enough for Gods people now. God does not change and His laws are still binding no matter what man may say. Let the Bible and only the Bible speak, Gods Holy Spirit lead Men to write it and God Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and make clear what God is saying.
Most of you know that I had Cancer and it came back 3 times. I fought it with all the radiation and chemo’s, but it did not work. Then the last time I just gave it all to God and because my body was in better health then normal by eating the right foods God stopped the cancer from growing. I still test positive for NPC and my doctors can’t understand how I am still alive 8 years later. Then again most of them know nothing about the correct food that Gad gave to man.
STORY: New Car
If you buy a new can what is the first thing you do, read the owner Manuel right. Why would do you do that?
Because when we buy something new we want to know what the Manufacture said about our new car and how to take care of it
The Manuel will tell us the type of Spark Plugs to best use and how often to change Oil and Filters where to put water and where not to put it, and most of all what type of Fuel is best for our New Car to keep it running at Maximum performance and keep all the internal part clean and working good.
Now we have a chose to make, we can do what the Manual said to do and keep our New Car in tip top shape, or we can through the Manual away, and put what we want into the car fuel tank, it just that simple.
You know it seams like we all start out making the wrong chose at first, look at Adam & Eve. Our first parents made a bad chose, but when they found out, they ask for forgiveness and God forgave them. So it was with our Fathers before us, so it is with us today.
When we finally realize that we make some bad mistakes in life all we have to do is say Father please forgive me, and he will. We may have to live with the result of the many bad mistakes we made, and that is understandable. So did our first Parents, but we can change our live and start living for Jesus today
I don’t know if this message will make you change your life style or not, or after hearing it what you will do. I pray it was a clear subject on the word of God dealing with what we should or should not eat; only you and God will know the answer to that.
The Choice is your!!!
Are you what you eat, or do you eat what you are?
I have changed my life style back to a vegetarian because I don’t like the taste of meat and because I believe God knows what the best things are for me to eat. After all who knows better but the creator.
Remember God gave these laws to His Holy people, back then they were the Jews, today they are His true follower His true Church.
