Human needs – FOOD
The biblical report of creation reveals that God has provided all needed for healthy living for peoples:
Food, water , fresh air ,light, exercise ( cultivating the garden of Eden ) , modesty (God has placed limits for everything, He has limited work with sequence of day and night , and there was also a tree with fruits that were not allowed to even taste ), rest ( nightly rest and weekly rest – the Sabbath rest ), trust in God ( through all of what man could and should recognize that God loves him , and in whom he may have a lot of trust). A man can achieve high personal success, but when he gets affected with sadness, disappointment, and sadness … his muscles cannot handle them anymore. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can carry you through thick and thin of life in terms of sin. Therefore, with all the beautiful essence of life, God gave Himself to man.
The biblical book of Genesis / I. Genesis 1; 1-31
Plant foods – 1; 29
29And 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.
(Herb bearing seed: grains, oilseeds)
(Fruitful trees: fruit, nuts)
After being separated from God with his disobedience, Adam heard these words from God:
Genesis 3; 17, 18
17… cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
(Herb of the field: plants that grew at the Garden of Eden – the garden – vegetables)
Due the changes in the Earth that have resulted with the separation of the first people from the Creator, because of the chaos what was brought by sin, as time goes by it is getting bigger), God has allowed people to add to the first menu herbs of the fieldthat was increasingly luxuriated and threatened the survival of many plant species that were given to man for food. Thus, the herbs of the field of Eden and the rest of the territory, arrived to peoples menu, even though it originally had another purpose:
Genesis 1; 30
30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every GREEN HERB for meat: and it was so.
Conditions of life on earth were particularly heavy after the flood. Noah was born into a pious family:
In this pious family, Noah realized importance of the right relationship with God. He was a devout:
Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. (Genesis 5; 9)
Before entering into the ark, before the flood, God instructed Noah to release all kinds of animals into the ark. In addition, he received the instruction:
Genesis 6; 21
21And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
People in the ark had a different menu from the animals in the ark. This is meant to provide a sufficient amount of grains, fruits, nuts and vegetables for Noah’s family, and for the animals – enough grass and hay.
Raised in a pious family, where he lived hundreds of years ago, a very devout man, Noahobeyed God in everything God asked of him.
By the end of the Flood, God blessed Noah and his family in their new life beginning, similar words, which He has blessed Adam and Eve when they were the only humans on Earth:
Genesis 1; 28 Blessing of Adam and Eve
28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Genesis 1; 9-6 Blessing Noah with supplement to the menu:
1And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
3Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
6Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
Once again God gave the planet Earth into the hands of the people. It has now been devastated by prolonged flooding. For surviving until the arrival of crops that are sown in the thorn soil, people had to add to their menu meat. God allowed this to them, but this was a limited food that was done in the manner that animals fear him, and that flesh food was not easy to gain. At the same time, God refers to the permissible meat food that shouldn’t be applied to humans. God has even edited the way to use the meat: for two health reasons
“But you must not eat flesh with life in it, that its blood. “
Leviticus 7; 26, 27
26Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.
27Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
Leviticus 17; 10-12
10And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
11For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
12Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.
When he killed the first animal in Eden, it was not for eating meat, but for vivid lessons and encouragement to Adam and Eve, that for their sins will die someone else and someone else’s blood will shed instead of theirs, of someone who will deliver them from eternal destruction. That for their life will suffer the blood of another. The blood of slaughtered animals indicated the saving blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. This instruction was given to Noah after leaving the ark after the flood, and God had repeated it to the people of Israel. In the days that are closer to our own, when the Apostle Paul proclaimed the Gospel of Christ in this part of Europe, the message that was sent from apostles of Christ from Jerusalem to converts from exile from Jerusalem was:
Acts 15; 28, 29
28For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
29That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
2 The physical reason for not eating blood in the meat:
„Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you …”
The animal should be alive and moving (healthy, not sick and immobile) that could be killed, because from the recently slaughtered animals it can drain blood from her body. If the animal is strangled, or a long time dead , it cannot be drained from blood, because in this case the blood clot and it is no longer flowing through blood vessels , and therefore cannot be drained out.
Then the blood remains in the muscles of the animals , and with it all dirt and germs of infectious diseases, parasites and parasite eggs …
The encyclopedia, the term „blood” – we have this record:
„Blood is red liquid that is constantly coursing through the heart, blood vessels , bringing to some parts of the body food, carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues and removes waste products from the body …”
This is the way that works human blood, but the same function has blood in animals too.
In order to consume meat with blood, the Israelis have applied special processing meat in order extract remaining blood from animal muscle.
Only these animals are used for food, called kosher. This meat does not taste so alluring to people who are accustomed to eating meat, but is devoid of hazardous effects of blood. It is known that the taste is desirable to gourmets – actually gives blood and urinal acid in the muscles of dead animals, which are two very dangerous elements in meat foods. While blood can cause and causes direct pollution to human body, uric acid causes arthritis, very serious and insidious disease in humans.
Because of this God has simply divided the animals, birds, reptiles … to the pure and impure. Due to the differences of their organisms, clean animals are allowed to prepare for food, and unclean animals are not.
In the Biblical book:
Leviticus / III: Exodus 11; 1-46 ,
Everyone who wants to dedicate to God, God has revealed what animals were clean and which were unclean. He has published and external signs of differences between clean and unclean animals:
Leviticus 1; 1 – 3
1And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
2Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
3Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
Let us recall once more that the animals were killed for the first time, and further in time, to point people to the saving blood of Jesus Christ, which will be shed for the forgiveness of their sins and deliverance from destruction, and from eternal death.
When a man, after the process of aging , sickness and suffering dies and turns into the dust of the earth, “He’s asleep”, says Jesus in the biblical revelation of its truth .
At the end of planet Earths history, when Jesus Christ takes dominion over it, all the “sleeping ” people, will be awaken and raised from the dust of the Earth by Jesus, in order to receive eternal – unlimited life , or eternal , ever suffered death , destruction.
Christ’s blood, the blood of the innocent, pure, sinless man and God, voluntarily, out of love, was shed to suffer for the sins of all mankind. This force of love has beat death. Christ has risen; risen from death, with faith and love he gave eternal life to all who accept Him.
About this glorious redemption of the human race has been indicated by dying and shedding blood of pure and blameless animals.
Pious Noah knew that God divided the animals to clean and unclean, and that only the clean ones were considered for food. From the clean one he offered a sacrifice to God, after the flood, which has pointed to the sacrifice of the Son of God.
Before the flood, while entering into the ark, Noah was instructed about clean and unclean animals:
Genesis 7; 2
2Of 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.
Genesis 7; 8, 9
8Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
Instructions that God gave to Noah about the meat food: „Everything“ (…moving and alive “), does not apply to any animal, or either man.
God has determined what it is, and what it is not food for humans in the vegetable menu, so after the flood, He added a certain consumption of meat, acceptable (clean) animals human. Meat of (unclean) animals fatal to human health – He has forbid to eat.
As the vegetation on earth after the flood again has regenerated, and with the crops that Noah has cultivated, people should have returned to the original menu, vegetarian menu.
Meat products are doing a major effort to digestive organs in people, and it’s causing many diseases and premature aging. However, people after flood were indulged in „pleasure “, allowing them to be lead by taste, instead of reason, generations were all in poor health and human life, which counted with hundreds of years before the flood , from the flood to date, reduced to a few decade years, which is horrifying and dramatic. When we add all existing pollution to the general poor state resistance of the organism, we conclude that the human race survives only by God’s grace and for only one reason: that man could recognize God’s love and return to the Father. People realized that the lifetime of a few decade years (60 – maximum 80), is not enough to allow reasonable development of man: childhood, adolescence, maturity, old age, with all the intellectual achievements of the age.
What was happening in the natural sequence of several hundred years, it is impossible to achieve in a short lifetime that has degraded humanity in slavery of taste.
So now we have circumstances that youth and age of physical maturation occurs in childhood, and the mental age of maturation encompasses elderly age in which there is no health, no power for remedy the wrong age at which no more health or power to remedy the consequences of the chaos committed in young days.
To ease yourself and loved ones of this extremely stressful life circumstances, you need to put yourself in the living conditions as similar as possible to those in the Garden of Eden, in natural conditions for all our needs, and even if, people refer to that as ” wilderness .”
It is easier to deal with the „wilderness“(nature) than with a number of diseases, stress, violence …
To further improve and enhance your health, you should return to the original menu, which God gave to the first humans.
This process requires: time, persistence, customization, but there we also have God’s support.
Farther away we are from the original menu, our body needs more cleaning. It starts in our mind, when our turn our will in the direction of what God has prepared for us and what is best for us.
Let this cleaning begins NOW.
