I was having a discussion with some of my fellow Israelite brothers and the topic was health. It was brought to my attention that one of our brothers has started a program called Natural Path To Eden. Their objection is to restore our health back to the optimal levels that we had in scripture.
It’s interesting because when we think about about it, The Most High laid out a blueprint for us to obtain and maintain optimal health. Though devils that walk the Earth have created environmental factors, food factors, and other issues that contribute to our poor health, we have to be honest that breaking The Most High’s laws are an even larger factor.
I Believe In The Law
First and foremost, I believe 100% in keeping the laws, statues, and commandments given to us by The Most High. I believe in worship on the Sabbath Day which is Friday evening to Saturday evening and not SUN-day. Sunday is for Sun God idolatry. I believe in the Passover and Hanukkah. I believe in the feast days, high holy days, and etc. Those are the events and holidays that Christ celebrated in scripture. He did not take part in Easter bunnies, Easter egg hunts, Santa Clause, Christmas trees, and other pagan customs. However, I don’t disrespect those that believe whole heartedly in them.
I also believe in the dietary laws given to us by The Most High. They were mainly given to us in Deuteronomy and Leviticus, but also appear throughout the bible. Why do I believe in the law? I believe in the law because Christ believed and maintained the law. He never once spoke against the law. So if it’s good enough for Christ then it must certainly be good enough for me.
This false idea of salvation without obligation and a lawless society can be contributed to the teachings of Paul and how everything he taught appears to conflict with Christ. I prefer to follow the teachings and the lifestyle of the man himself and not someone whom factually knew next to nothing about the historical Christ. I could really go in on this one but this is not the appropriate post.
Now to walk like Christ in the law, also means to eat like Christ in the law. The Most High gave us a foundation to build upon in Deuteronomy and Leviticus.
These charts illustrate what are considered to be unclean meats. I have to be honest with this. I was never big on seafood, but I would tear some shrimp up. Go get some popcorn shrimp and pop them like tic tacs. I had to give those up and repent. So why did The Most High forbade us from eating shellfish and describe them as detestable?
We have to look at the nature of these creatures. They are the scavengers of the ocean floor. They are nature’s version of a garbage truck designed to break down dead and decaying matter in bodies of water. Lobsters and crabs consume rotting flesh and will eat anything on the ocean floor. They are referred to as ” Ocean Vultures” by many. Shrimp are scavengers that not only eat dead body parts on the ocean floor, but also are cannibals which has been determined by the parasites living in them.
Due to the scavenger nature of shellfish and other environmental factors these creatures have high levels of mercury and are loaded with heavy metals. I’ve written several posts on the dangers of mercury and heavy metal toxicity. It’s a huge detriment to our health and especially in our children. Shellfish also send more people to the hospital with food related allergens than any other food. Sounds like The Most High knew exactly what he was doing.
Words can’t describe the hatred that I have for this walking piece of garbage. This beast is savage, deplorable, detestable, disgusting, wretched, vile, wicked, sinister, and every other negative adjective you can think of. There are at least 14 scriptures were The Most High and Christ condemn this animal. For that matter, Christ had to find an animal wicked enough to contain a legion of demons and what animal was able to hold demons? The repulsive swine!
So why was swine forbade for human consumption? Pigs are scavengers that will eat everything they come in contact with including their own vomit, feces, their young, and cannibalize one another. Due to their scavenger nature and inability to detoxify they are loaded with toxins that make them unfit for human consumption. In fact they were not created for human consumption. Their purpose is to consume the filth of the Earth . Their scavenger nature makes them carriers of several pathogenic organisms that are know to cause severe health conditions.
- Taenia solium tapeworm
- PRRS (Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome)
- Nipah virus
- Menangle virus
- Hepatitis E virus (HEV
A Consumer Report investigation found that 69% of all raw pork samples tested were contaminated with high amounts of volatile microorganisms such as Yersinia enterocolitica. This bacteria causes fever and gastrointestinal stress and could potentially cause a fatal infection.
The tapeworm parasites found in swine have the ability to travel into your brain. Jay Whalley, a musician from the UK had this to occur. He began to have seizures and doctor’s feared that he had brain cancer after discovering a 1 cm growth in his brain. However, surgery showed a cyst that had developed over a pig tapeworm.
Dr. David Jockers explains why pigs are so toxic:
Animals that “chew the cud” as it says in the bible are called ruminants. These animals hardly chew their food when it is first swallowed. But they have four stomachsthat digest and regurgitate food through a special process that allows complete digestion. The major ruminants are cows, sheep and goats (9).
The digestive system of a pig is unique in that it metabolizes food very quickly through one stomach in a process that takes about four hours. A cow takes twenty four hours to digest what’s eaten and it is able to get rid of excess toxins during the digestive process. The pig’s digestive system doesn’t allow for this and the toxins are carried into the fat cells and organs of the pig itself.
Pigs also do not have sweat glands. Perspiration is a key method the body uses to for detoxification and the pig is not designed to perspire. When we consume pig meat we get all of these pathogenic microorganisms and environmental toxins into our system.
So with these laws The Most High is trying to give us the foundation to establish good health. He was warning us of the dangers that these foods have. That’s what I call love, grace, and mercy.
