Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2)
God’s desire for His children is that they are healthy. In all aspects, be it physically, spiritually or mentally. Today we look at the physical.
The best diet is a vegetarian diet. But today it is not always possible to do so consistently (at least not for everybody). Man’s first diet was vegetarian. (Genesis 1:29)
After a while God added meat to his diet and gave specific details about what can and cannot be eaten. (Leviticus 11) The concept of clean and unclean existed since and before the time of Noah, ” 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.”(Genesis 7: 2 KJV)
Ingesting harmful substances such as tobacco, alcohol and drugs and others, is not worthy of God, for the Bible also tells us: ” What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 KJV).
God asks us to be obedient to Him and to build up our relationship with Him. That’s the only visa that gives you access to His Kingdom. God bless and blessed Sabbath.
