Great medical care is priceless - but wouldn't it be great if we didn't need doctors anymore? Answer: A In Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14, God very clearly points out the following groups as being unclean.
The ones which live all or part-time in water and do not have both fins and scales are unclean. Note: These chapters make it clear that most animals, birds, and water creatures people ordinarily eat are clean. God makes it very plain that children and grandchildren (to the fourth generation) pay for the folly of parents who ignore God's health rules. Answer: A Sincere Christians will bring their lives into harmony with God's rules at once, because they love Him. Answer: A The citizens of God's new kingdom will obey His health laws, and there will be no sickness or disease. He made it for the same purpose that He made the buzzard--as a scavenger to clean up garbage. Verses 3 through 6 are a discussion of those who eat certain things versus those who do not.
Answer: A The Sabbath is not the first day of the week (Sunday), as many believe, but the seventh day (Saturday). Answer: A In the fourth commandment of the 10, God commands us to observe the seventh-day Sabbath as His holy day.
Answer: A Yes, the book of Acts makes it clear that Paul and the early church kept the Sabbath. Answer: A The apostles in the early New Testament church not only obeyed God's Sabbath command, but they also taught the converted Gentiles to worship on Sabbath. Answer: A No, there is not the remotest hint that the Sabbath was changed at Christ's death or resurrection. Answer: A Yes, the Bible says the saved people of all ages will keep the Sabbath in the new earth. Answer: A Misguided men of long years past announced that God's holy day was changed from Sabbath to Sunday. Answer: A God has specifically and positively forbidden men to change His law by deletions or additions. Answer: A In hiding their eyes from God's true Sabbath, religious leaders offend the God of heaven.
On the contrary, the disciples at this time did not believe that the resurrection had taken place (Mark 16:14).
The Bible has ample evidence that there were clean and unclean animals from the very dawn of Creation. Those who break God's rules regarding the care of the body machine will reap broken bodies and burned-out lives, just as one who abuses his automobile will have serious car trouble. The children and grandchildren inherit weakened, sickly bodies when mother and father defy God's rules for their lives. They know that His rules greatly add to their happiness and protect them from the devil's diseases (Acts 10:38).
He will joyfully give you a new heart and the power you need to break any evil habit and become a son or daughter of God (Ezekiel 11:18, 19). They will be blessed with eternal vigour and youth and will live with God in supreme joy and happiness throughout all eternity.
These meats, as we have already discovered, are the clean meats listed in Leviticus chapter 11 and Deuteronomy chapter 14. The passage does not say either is right, but rather counsels that neither pass judgment on the other. 20121 Kings 8:28 -- But please listen to my prayer and my request, because I am your servant.
It's astounding that only a few people are aware of it, because it's one of the most significant days in all of human history! Notice from the above Scripture that the Sabbath is the day that comes just before the first day of the week. Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. To tamper with God's holy law in any way is one of the most fearful and dangerous things a person can do.
God made it for you, and if you love Him you will keep it, because it is one of His commandments. Reliable encyclopedias and reference books make it clear that our seventh day is the same one that Jesus kept holy.
The issue here is not over the seventh-day Sabbath, which was a part of the great moral law, but over the yearly feast days of the ceremonial law. According to God's rules, the following animals are unclean and are not to be eaten: hogs, squirrels, rabbits, catfish, eels, lobsters, clams, crabs, shrimp, oysters, frogs, and many others.


And those who continue to break God's laws of health will ultimately be destroyed by the Lord (1 Corinthians 3:16, 17).
God's counsel and rules are always for our good, just as good parents' rules and counsel are best for their children. The scribes taught that eating any food without a special ceremonial washing defiled the eater.
God gave Peter this vision to show him that the Gentiles were not unclean, as the Jews believed. This meeting of Acts 20 was held on the dark part of Sunday, or on what we now call Saturday night.
There were seven yearly holy days, or holidays, in ancient Israel which were also called sabbaths.
Scientists have sounded the ominous warnings about cholesterol, tobacco, stress, obesity, and alcohol, so why press your luck? After all, the mere eating of a piece of forbidden fruit by Adam and Eve, a sinless couple, brought sin and death to this world in the first place. The death of Christ had no altering effect whatever on these health laws, since the Bible says that all who break them will be destroyed when Jesus returns (Isaiah 66:15-17). Verses 14 and 20 refer to foods that were first offered to idols (and were thus ceremonially unclean)--not to the clean and unclean meats of Leviticus chapter 11. We carried it proudly all the way back to one of their houses and proceeded to patch the hole with a piece of plywood and tar. The only day ever blessed by the Lord or claimed by Him as His holy day is the seventh-day Sabbath. The Bible never suggests Sunday-keeping in honour of the resurrection (or for any other reason, for that matter). Sunday-keeping is a tradition of uninspired men and breaks God's law, which commands Sabbath-keeping. In Isaiah 58:13, 14, God says all who would be blessed must first get their feet off His Sabbath. These Christians all kept Sabbath holy, so Paul suggested that on Sunday morning (which was the time they paid bills and settled accounts), after the Sabbath was over, they put aside something for their needy brethren so it would be on hand when he came. Only eight texts in the New Testament mention the first day of the week; none of them imply that it is holy.
Hospitals and psychiatric institutions are packed with people who have ignored the warnings - do you really want to join them? If our bodies are misused, our minds and spiritual natures cannot become what God ordained they should.
Christ even commands us to clear up grudges that others may hold against us (Matthew 5:23, 24).
But Peter would have refused to see them if God had not given him this vision, because Jewish law forbade entertaining Gentiles (verse 28). We honour Christ by obeying Him (John 14:15)--not by substituting man-made requirements in place of His. Jesus condemned the Pharisees for pretending to love God while making void one of the Ten Commandments by their tradition (Mark 7:7-13). Paul was on a farewell tour and knew he would not see these people again before his death (verse 25). God's seventh-day Sabbath was made before sin entered, and therefore could foreshadow nothing about deliverance from sin. In the next chapter (Acts 11), the church members criticized Peter for speaking with these Gentiles.
For amazing facts about how you can have abundant health and longer life, look over this Study Guide - but be sure to read it all before jumping to conclusions! A Christian will completely avoid all things that are harmful and will be moderate in the use of things that are good. There is not the slightest indication in this Scripture passage that the first day is holy, nor that these early Christians considered it so. Ignoring God's health laws, however, may cause a person to be lost, because it will ruin his judgment and cause him to sin. God, in mercy, tells us what these laws are so we may avoid the tragedies that result from breaking them.
One of the boys found a canoe paddle in the weeds and we three got into the boat and started to paddle out.
Jesus made it clear that He intended for the Sabbath to be kept even 40 years after His resurrection. Recent scientific findings confirm the fact that the use of tobacco often shortens the life span by as much as one-third. This is too plain to misunderstand: when we help the poor and needy, we improve our own health.
The devil argues that freedom is found in disobedience, but this is a falsehood (John 8:44).


In fact, there is no intimation anywhere in the Scriptures that Jesus, His Father, or the apostles ever (at any time, under any circumstances) changed the holy seventh-day Sabbath to any other day.a€?a€?C.
Incidentally, this meeting is probably mentioned in the Scripture only because of the miracle of raising Eutychus back to life after he fell to his death from a third-floor window. In fact, there is no intimation anywhere in the Scriptures that Jesus, His Father, or the apostles ever (at any time, under any circumstances) changed the holy seventh-day Sabbath to any other day.C. We feverishly paddled with that one oar and bailed out the water with our hands and an old can. Barely we made it to shore and got out just before the boat sank below the water and headed downstream.
Medical science has confirmed the fact that tea, coffee, and soft drinks that contain the addictive drug caffeine and other harmful ingredients are all positively damaging to the human body. Wet, cold and shaking the three of us headed home knowing we would never tell our parents of this stupid adventure. None of these contain food value except through the sugar or cream added, and most of us already use too much sugar. We were lucky to be alive and it was only by Goda€™s grace that I can live to tell about it. Stimulants give a dangerous, artificial boost to the body and are like trying to carry a ton in a wheelbarrow. The popularity of these drinks is due not to flavor or advertising, but to the dose of caffeine they contain. Many Americans are sickly because of their addiction to coffee, tea, and caffeinated soft drinks.
But the real tragedy is that men and women seeking peace and strength are using tea and coffee as cheap substitutes for prayer and Bible study.
Sometimes that other road will bring you back to your original path and sometimes it will take you farther away from it.
But God used him to gather and lead his people out of Pharaoha€™s slavery and split the Red Sea in two.A  Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and was cast into prison but became the second most powerful person inEgypt. Or, maybe just maybe a smile or a kind word from you to a stranger may just prevent them from going home and ending their own life and their grandson will some day save the world.
He will bring to light things that are now hidden in darkness, and will make known the secret purposes of people's hearts. Throw your troubled waters out of your boat and paddle on down that river of life with Him at your side.
You have ears, but you don't really listen.Psalm 13:2 -- How long must I worry and feel sad in my heart all day? I have been praying for something to happen for 4A? years now and what I prayed for was not granted. Leta€™s speak of reality a€“ He is God and He can do what He wants to or not do what He doesna€™t want to. We cannot command the Lord to do anything whether we do it in pleading, tears, anger, or desperation. If God has the will, He may answer our prayers about life but nothing says that He absolutely has to. All we have is the hope that he will hear us, see what we are going through, and grant us a little drop of His mercy in this life. He will cure a cancer, heal the deaf, grow an arm back or bring someone back to life but that does not mean He will do it all the time.
He has given us guidance through His word (the Bible) and occasionally gives us a nudge or lesson to learn from but basically kicks us out of the nest like the mother bird does to face the challenges of life. I get so frustrated at times that my prayers are not answered and I have to keep reminding myself that this is my life and I need to deal with it on my own sometimes. Their job is to preach the message to inspire, encourage, and give hope to their congregations. If we are to be an example of His mercy to others, it can only be done with people of lesser stature than us. He wants us to spread the Gospel and not make up stories of what He has done for us personally in life. Just show others how you believe in His salvation and forgiveness and tell them of His Word.
He has promised everything in His kingdom of Heaven to those who accept His Son as Lord and Savior. Life here is just a temporary setback, trial and test to see if we are worthy of everlasting life sharing in His love -- or without it in a very dark place. So accept His Son as your Lord and claim the only real promise that He made to us --- Forgiveness and Salvation.
