“”And the LORD commanded us to observe all this statutes, to fear our LORD our GOD, for our good always, that He might preserve us alive”(Deuterenomy 6-24)
Why did God give health rules to His people?
“So you should serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And Iwill take sickness away from your mist of you” (Exodus 23:25)
GOD gave health rules because He knows what is good for our human body.
God who made our bodies, also has a “operations manual”. It is call The Holy Bible. Ignoring GOD’s “operations manual”results in disease, twisted thinking, and burned our lives, results in serious trouble.
Following GOD’s rules results in “salvation” (saying health)” (Plsalms 67:2} and more abundant life (John 10;10); These great health rules are like a wall or fence to keep out the diseases of Satan. God tells us what these rules are so we can avoid the devil’s traps.
“Eat what is good” ((Issah 55:2). “Therefore, wheteher you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the Glory of GOD”. (1Corinthians 10:31).
Yes, a Christian will even eat differently — all to the Glory of God — using only “that which is good”If God says a thing is not fit to eat. He must have a good reason, . He is not a harsh dictator, but a loving Father. All His counsel is for our good always. The Bible promises:”No good thing will He withold from those who walk uprightly” (Plalsm 84:11) So if God witholds a thing from us, is because is not good.
No person can eat his way into heaven. Eating even the food of angels will not entitle people to paradise. Only acceptance to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior can do that. Ignoring God’s health laws, however, may cause a person to be lost, because he will turn his judgement and cause him to sin.
What surprised me about humanity the most,
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health to make money. Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health… He lives as though he is never going to die and dies having never really lived.”
Why is it that our society is so unhealthy? Both physically, mentally and spiritually? Why are more people addicted to painkillers and antidepressants than ever before?
What did God give people to eat when He created them and provide a perfect diet?
“And God Said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed…. every tree whose fruit yields seed” “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat”(Genesis 1:29;2:16).
The diet God gave people in the beginning was fruit, grains and nuts. Vegetables were added a bit later (Genesis 3:18).
A food diary can help you pinpoint problem eating patterns. Do you mindlessly munch on junk food when you watch TV? You may not be aware how many unhealthful, high-calorie foods you are consuming at odd moments if you dont track your habits with a food diary. Seeing it all in black and white can help you take responsability for changing your behavior.
Try to meet the following recomendations as part of a healthy eating pattern while staying within your calorie needs.
Increase vegetable and fruit intake. Eat a variety of vegetables, especially dark green, red and orange vegetables, and beans and peas. Consume half of all grains as whole grains. Increase intake of fat-free or low fat milk and milk products. Choose a variety of protein foods, including seafood by choosing seafood in place of some meat and poultry. Use oils to replace solid fats where possible. Choose foods that provide more potassium, dietary fiber, and calcium, which are nutrients we may not get enough of. These foods include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and milk and milk products.
