12-29-2012- ARGUING BETWEEN MEATS AND HERBS


ROMANS 14: 2 FOR ONE BELIEVES THAT HE MAY EAT ALL THINGS; ANOTHER WHO IS WEAK, EATS HERBS,(VEGETABLES). 


"REMARKS"

HERE IS AN INTERESTING SCENARIO, THE CHURCH ARGUING OVER WHAT THEY CAN EAT. WHY?

IT ALL STARTED IN THE BEGINNING OF CREATION.

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 MEAT,(FOOD). 

SOME IN THE CHURCH WERE LIVING BY THIS COMMAND OF GOD, YAH'WEH, TO EAT HERBS, AS FAR AS WHAT TO EAT, BEING WEAK IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORD AND THEIR FAITH.

THE OTHER SIDE WANTED TO EAT WHATEVER THEY WANTED TO, KNOWING THE FULL EXTENT OF THE SCRIPTURES, WHEN THIS SCRIPTURE IS ADDED TO THEIR KNOWLEDGE.

GENESIS 9: 3 = EVERY MOVING THING THAT LIVES SHALL BE MEAT FOR YOU; EVEN AS THE GREEN HERB, HAVE I GIVEN YOU ALL THINGS.  

SO NOW WE SEE THE TWO SIDES OF THE ARGUMENT, ONE SEES WHERE YOU CAN EAT HERBS ONLY AND THE OTHER, WHERE YOU CAN EAT HERBS,(VEGETABLES) AND MEATS.


*****HERE IS A REVELATION FROM GOD, YAH'WEH, THAT I AM SO REJOICING IN. 

IT IS THE REASON THAT MEATS, IS GOING TO HAVE A MONUMENTAL PART, IN THE WHOLE PICTURE OF MAN AND HIS SINS.

IN THE GARDEN WHEN EVE TRANSGRESSED, GOD, YAH'WEH, HAD TO KILL AN ANIMAL FOR ITS SKIN, AS A SIN COVERING, FOR ADAM AND EVE, BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN. AT THE SAME TIME, A SKIN, AND BLOOD OFFERING, WAS BEING GIVEN TO ADAM AND EVE, FOR THEIR PHYSICAL COVERING, AND THEIR SIN OFFERING.

SO GOD, YAH'WEH, SEEING MAN WAS IN A SIN CONDITION, THAT WOULD GO ON FOREVER, OPENED THE DOOR OF SALVATION, THROUGH HIS FIRST SIN OFFERING OF BLOOD, FOR ADAM AND EVE SIN.

IT WOULD SEEM, THAT GOD,YAH'WEH, HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO RETRACT HIS ONLY FOOD TO EAT WAS HERBS, (VEGETABLES), AND OPEN THE DOOR TO EAT CLEAN MEAT OF ANIMALS, AND THE BLOOD FOR SACRIFICES AND FOR MEN'S SINS FORGIVEN.

THAT IS WHY BLOOD IS THE LIFE. WITHOUT BLOOD, THERE IS NO PROTECTION AGAINST SIN, WHICH BRINGS DEATH.

WHEN THE PASSOVER WAS INSTITUTED IN EGYPT, WHEN GOD, YAH'WEH, TOLD HIS PEOPLE, THE HEBREWS, TO PUT THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB,(SYMBOLIC OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND HIS DEATH AND BLOOD), ON THEIR DOORPOST, SO THE DEATH ANGEL WOULD SEE THE BLOOD, AND PASS OVER  THEM THE DEATH ANGEL.


GOD, YAH'WEH, ALSO, IN NOT ONLY LETTING PEOPLE AFTER THE FLOOD, EAT THE MEAT BUT, IT BECAME MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE BLOOD OFFERING FOR THE SACRIFICES OF ISRAEL IN THE TEMPLE AND, OF COURSE, AS WE MOVE FROM THE TEMPLE SACRIFICES, WE MOVE INTO THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND HIS BLOOD OFFERING, FOR THE SINS OF MAN.

HEBREWS 9: 22 = AND ALMOST ALL THINGS ARE BY THE LAW, PURGED WITH BLOOD; AND WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD, IS NO REMISSION, ( AND FORGIVENESS FOR SINS.) 

AND NOW THE GREATEST SACRIFICE GIVEN TO MAN, WAS THE SHEDDING OF JESUS, YAH'SHUAS, BLOOD ON THE CROSS, FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF MANS SINS.

MATTHEW 26: 28 = FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT, WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY, FOR THE REMISSION, (FORGIVENESS), OF SINS. 

SO NOW WE SEE A PICTURE OF WHY MEATS CAME TO BE THE MOST VALUABLE DOOR TO SACRIFICES OF BLOOD, FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND NOT ONLY THAT, BUT FOR FOOD FOR MAN, TO FILL HIS DIET, THROUGH THE CLEAN FOOD ORDINANCES GOD, YAH'WEH, COMMANDED TO BE EATEN, IN LEVITICUS.

AS MANY PEOPLE BECAME HERB, VEGETARIANS, MANY EAT BOTH MEAT AND HERBS,VEGETABLES.

WHATEVER THE CASE, LET NOT FOODS SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD. THEREFORE JUDGE NOT YOUR BROTHER FOR WHICH HE EATS, MEAT AND, OR, HERBS, AND NOT EATING ANY UNCLEAN MEAT, AS THE LAW STIPULATES WHAT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO EAT IN LEVITICUS.
