Does The Law Of Clean And Unclean Meats Still Apply Today?

Of 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. Gen. 7:2 (Before the law of clean and unclean animals was given to the Israelites, Noah knew God’s law. Noah knew which animals were clean and unclean. It wasn’t just for the Israelites, it was for all mankind. It is an issue of obedience, health, and holiness. Eating an unclean animal has physical health consequences that God wants us to avoid. God also calls us to be holy in regards to our bodies. Eating unclean meats is an unholy act.)

Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. Gen. 9:3-4 (God gave Adam and Eve animals and plants for food. But some plants are poisonous and are meant for other purposes. So too are some animals unclean and meant for other purposes. Also, we are not to eat meat with the blood still in it. This is God’s creation and He knows better than anyone what animals he intended to be for food.)

Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off. Lev. 17:14 (God knows the blood carries in it things which will harm us if eaten.)

It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood. Lev. 3:17 (God also knows that the fat also carries in it things which will harm us if eaten.)

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat. Lev. 7:23 (Even the fat of clean animals is not in our best health interest, so says the creator.)

Judging Others Misconception

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. Matt. 7:1-5 (This is possibly the most often quoted, mistranslated, misinterpreted verse in the Bible. Christians and non-Christians alike both love to quote this verse to escape any kind of accountability from their actions or words. Once they quote this verse, you can no longer correct anything that they say or do. The first phrase’s meaning is lost in translation. I will show that it contradicts the rest of scripture, so it must be interpreted another way because the Bible doesn’t contradict itself. The KJV translation is: Judge not, that ye be not judged. It is more clearly understood if you read it as follows: That ye be not judged, judge not. So unless you have been judged yourself FIRST by either yourself or someone else, you are instructed not to judge others. BUT if you have been judged and have repented and been forgiven of all your past sins, then you are authorized to judge others of faith. After this first phrase it explains how we should judge mercifully because if we judge harshly, then we too will be judged that way. Then the emphasis is on hypocrisy. We are not to judge others if we ourselves are unrepentant and thus still unforgiven of our own sins. BUT if we have repented and been forgiven of our past sins, THEN we are authorized to remove the speck from our brother’s eye. It doesn’t say that we should NEVER judge or NEVER remove the speck from our brother’s eye, Jesus is simply specifying to judge ourselves FIRST and not be hypocrites. You will see in the following verses that it is our duty as Christians to judge others of faith so long as it is done mercifully, righteously, gently, not hypocritically, not to unbelievers, not to disputable matters, and in truth. Jesus doesn’t condemn judging others, it is who we judge, who is authorized to judge, and how we judge that is emphasized.)

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. John 7:24 (This is a commandment to judge, the emphasis is on how we judge.)

Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction. II Tim. 4:2 (NIV)

But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. I Cor. 2:15

Deception Warnings From The Bible

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Matt. 24:4-5 (This is not talking about people that claim themselves to be the Messiah, because “many” are not deceived that way. This is talking about those that profess Christ to be the Messiah, these are the people we should beware of because “many” will be deceived by these false teachers.)

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matt. 24:24

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 2 Tim. 3:13

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 2 Cor. 11:13-15 (Satan and his ministers do not look like bad, evil people. They present themselves as righteous people and Satan as an “angel of light.”)

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Is. 14:12-14 (Satan doesn’t reveal himself as the “bad guy.” He reveals himself as being the most High. Only he is not, but will be “like the most High.” He will be a counterfeit to the real thing. But many will follow after him deceived into believe they are worshipping the God of the Bible. Satan seeks worship in place of the most High.)

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily(secretly) shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: 2 Pet. 2:1-3 (These false prophets and teachers are not just out among the secular world, but also among the people of God and “many” will follow after them.)

Bible "Conspiracy Theories"

And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. Luke 4:5-7 (Satan currently has power over all the kingdoms of the world and was able to give it to Jesus right then and there if he would just worship Satan. So why is it so far fetched to believe that Satan would have a global conspiracy plotted for mankind?)

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4 (Who “is in the world” that God is greater than? Answer: Satan. So does Satan have the power to deceive and manipulate world events?)

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 2 Cor. 4:4 (Satan is described as “the god of this world.” As the god of this world, is it that far fetched to believe that the human rulers of the world would be controlled by Satan?)

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. Ps. 2:2 (All of Psalms 2 reveals a global conspiracy against the Lord and his anointed by the kings and rulers of the earth.)

Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: Psalm 64:2 (The wicked work in secret.)

Should You Follow Your Heart?

Following your heart is actually a satanic law. This is actually the law of the satanic bible and also the world. “Do what thou wilt, shall be the whole of the law.” Think of all the countless songs written and sang today that advocate following or listening to your heart, doing what you want, your way, and by your own inner strength. If it feels right or will make you happy, then it must be right and you should do it. This is not what God’s word teaches. How much destruction has this way of thinking caused in our world? We are not to follow our own way, nor follow our feelings, nor even trust our own experiences IF it doesn’t line up with God’s word. These are the ways in which Satan deceives us. Even if we are well intended, that is not a barometer for righteousness and pleasing God. Our ONLY defense against this is God’s word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We are to trust in and follow God; and make sure we listen to him and obey him. If you trust in yourself, you are following Satan’s lies. Let’s see what God says…

He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: Prov. 28:26 (Ouch!)

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: Jer. 17:9

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Prov. 14:12

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Prov. 3:5

Is The Sabbath Day Still Holy?

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. Gen. 2:3 (God blessed and sanctified the 7th day at the creation, well before Mt. Sinai)

And he said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath. Mark 2:27-28 (The Sabbath was not just for Jews or for Israel, but for man. And Jesus is not Lord of Sunday, but Lord of the Sabbath.)

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. [9] Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: [10] But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: [11] For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it. Ex. 20: 8-11 (The 4th commandment is directly linked to the creation when God rested on the 7th day. God wants us to “remember” who is the creator of all things.)

And he(Jesus) came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. Luke 4:16 (It was Christ’s custom to observe the Sabbath)

The Church VS Israel

Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; Eph. 2:11-19 (They were formerly “Gentiles in the flesh.” Now they are made apart of the one body of Christ. So now spiritual Israel has grafted in the Gentile converts to be made one new man and included as heirs to the promises.)

How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Eph. 3:3-6 (The mystery of Christ is that Gentiles are now offered the opportunity to be fellowheirs and partakers of the promises of spiritual Israel.)

BREAKING NEWS: Ron Paul Winning Nomination (Either Way)!

It's either Ron Paul or Barack Obama for 2012 President. So why not back Ron Paul if you aren't already. Romney or Santorum have no chance because Ron Paul delegates are loyal and won't compromise their principles. They won't back the nominee no matter what. This has never before been the case. That's why the GOP is obsessed with Ron Paul running 3rd party, because they know they are done if he does. Many Obama supporters that are sick of Obama will turn to Ron Paul. Ron Paul beats Obama in the head to head polls. These primary shenanigans and media black out on Ron Paul won't work. The only solution for the establishment at this point may be an assassination attempt of Ron Paul. But that would only add fuel to the fire of this revolution. This will be interesting to see how this plays out. But you can thankfully forget about a possible Romney or Santorum presidency. It's just not going to happen.

Barack Obama Admin Cites 'Int'l Permission,' Not Congress, As 'Legal Bas...

They are just throwing it in our faces. It would be bad enough for Obama to announce himself a dictator, but claiming that they get there orders from the United Nations and NATO is even worse. People will laugh and call you a conspiracy theorist for claiming there is a world government, but that is exactly what we have and this video is one of many proofs of that. If we had a free press, this would be headline news, but sadly we don't. Just look at the arrogant and smug look on the face of the General in the background. The Congressman is baffled by the openness in which they claim Congress as irrelevant and say that their legal basis for war is gained through an international body such as the United Nations. The Congressman is like...Hey we are war mongers too and banker funded. We'll give you the authorization for war, but we want the power. I'm only upset because I'm losing my power. Panetta we don't care what you say or what the constitution says, we will follow orders handed down to us from the United Nations and will let you know what was decided. The founders are rolling over in their graves.
