2 Malachi

Pigs (and other unclean beasts)

Hello again.

Sadly in these times the vast majority of churchy christians ignore the laws of God, as given to Moses at Mount Horeb. They have been deceived into believing that lawlessness is fine, when it is in fact unrepentant sin. In this post I am going to address the topic of the laws telling us which animals we are allowed to eat, and those prohibited in the law, and I will show how liar preachers distort and deceive using statements and events in the new scriptures to attempt to justify their preaching of lawlessness. If only people were wise as serpents, the deceptions would fail. I hope this post in due course will help any babes in faith and prevent them from being led astray by the wolves in the pulpits, and maybe some who attend churches will see the truth and repent too.

Let’s start with the law itself, from my own Word of God translation, here are the opening verses from Leviticus 11:

1And spoke Yehovah unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying unto
them,
2‘Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, ‘these are the
beasts which ye may eat out of all the beasts which are on the
earth:
3any with a divided hoof, of those having split hoofs, and
bringing up the cud, among the beasts, according to the Word
of God, these ye doth eat.

4‘Only, by the Word of God, these ye doth not eat of those
bringing up the cud, and of those dividing the hoof, by the
Word of God the camel, though it brings up the cud, yet the
hoof is not divided, it is unclean to thee.


5And by the Word of God, the coney, though it brings up the
cud, yet the hoof it does not divide, unclean it is to thee;
6and
by the Word of God, the hare, though it brings up the cud, yet
the hoof it does not divide, unclean it is to thee;
7and by the
Word of God, the swine, though it divides the hoof, and hast
splitting of the hoof, yet the cud it doth not bring up, unclean it
is to thee.
8‘Of their flesh ye shalt not eat, and against their
carcasses ye shalt not come, unclean they are to thee.


9‘By the Word of God, this ye doth eat, from all that which is in
the waters; all those that hath fins and scales in the waters, in
the seas, and in the rivers, these ye may eat;
10and all that hath
not fins and scales in the seas, and in the brooks, of any
teeming creature of the waters, and of any creature which lives,
which is in the waters, an abomination they are to thee;
11detestable they are to thee; of their flesh ye doth not eat
according to the Word of God, and their carcasses shalt be
counted as abominable.
12‘Anything that hath not fins and
scales in the waters, an abomination it is to thee.
13‘And by the Word of God these ye doth count as
abominable, of the fowl; they are not eaten, an abomination
they are: by the Word of God, the eagle, according to the Word
of God, the vulture, and according to the Word of God, the
buzzard.


14And according to the Word of God, the kite, and according
to the Word of God, the hawk, anything of this kind.

15By the Word of God, every raven, anything of this kind,16and
according to the Word of God, the ostrich, and according to the
Word of God, the great owl, and according to the Word of God,
the gull, and according to the Word of God, the hawk, anything
of this kind.


17And according to the Word of God, the little owl, according
to the Word of God, the cormorant, and according to the Word
of God, the owl,
18and according to the Word of God, the
water hen, and according to the Word of God, the pelican, and
according to the Word of God, the carrion vulture,
19and
according to the Word of God, the stork and the heron,
anything of their kind, and according to the Word of God, the
lapwing, and according to the Word of God, the bat.


20‘Every creeping creature which is flying, which is going on
four legs, an abomination it is to thee.
21‘Surely, by the Word
of God, thou shalt not eat any teeming thing which is flying,
except those which are going on four legs, which hath legs
above its feet, to leap with them on the earth;
22by the Word
of God, these ye may eat: by the Word of God, the locust,
anything of its kind, and according to the Word of God, the
bald locust, anything of its kind, and according to the Word of
God, the cricket, anything of its kind, and according to the
Word of God, the grasshopper, anything of its kind;
23but all
other teeming things which fly, which hath four feet, an
abomination it is to thee.

There’s nothing that needs explaining above, it’s a very plain and simple list of what is allowed, and what is prohibited. It is also obvious that the prohibited animals are bad for our health, literally unclean, and even unbelievers might think twice about eating them. Obviously the Chinese are the exception to the rule, I abhor any nation that eats cats and dogs and rats and monkeys, as well as other unclean creatures, they are truly godless peoples.

I will look at some verses from the new scriptures that have been twisted by wolf pastors to preach that the laws above no longer apply, but first, let’s see what Yahshua himself had to say about the law whilst he was living and ministering on earth, because if you choose to follow Yahshua to God, you will of course choose to follow his teaching, even though the churchians just ignore what he taught. We will start with the famous sermon on the mount in Matthew 5:

17Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. 18For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

19So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Although the verses are very plainly spoken, impossible to misunderstand or misinterpret, I have lost count of the number of times churchians responded to my teaching with the comment ‘ah, but Jesus fulfilled the law’, followed by the oft-misinterpreted verse from Paul ‘We are not under the law, we are under grace’. These people so easily forget that Yahshua had said in the same sentence that he didn’t come to destroy the law or the prophets. They somehow think that the verb ‘to fulfill’ means to remove or to destroy something. Idiots eh? In fact, this is the dictionary definition of ‘to fulfill’:

to do something that is expected, hoped for, or promised, or to cause it to happen

It’s more or less the opposite of destroy isn’t it, to make something happen.

And when they quote Paul, they fail to just read the next verse, which would show them that sin is not acceptable to my Father, especially after someone has been the recipient of His grace, through the death of His son Yahshua, so here is what Paul said in Romans 6:

12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its desires. 13Do not present the parts of your body to sin as instruments of wickedness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and present the parts of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness. 14For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.

15What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law, but under grace? Certainly not! 16Do you not know that when you offer yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves to the one you obey, whether you are slaves to sin leading to death, or to obedience leading to righteousness? 17But thanks be to God that, though you once were slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were committed. 18You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

The lying pastors ONLY QUOTE the bolded words and fail to teach all of the other verses. They teach that we are not expected to obey the laws of God at all, because we are under some new arrangement, whereby grace allows lawlessness. Once we read ALL of the verses, we quickly see that nothing could be further from the truth, the expectation is that once we are saved and baptised and sanctified, we will not desire sin at all, and we won’t do it. We become willing slaves to righteousness instead. So, be warned, those of you who find your faith in the next eleven years, watch out for those that would steer you away from the narrow path of righteous living, into the deadly ways of continued unrepentant sin.

So, let’s look at a few of the new scriptures that are twisted to enable wolf pastors to teach lawlessness, and we’ll start with Yahshua again and his teaching on the hand-washing traditions of the Pharisees. Here are the opening verses from Matthew 15:

1Then some Pharisees and scribes came to Yahshua from Jerusalem and asked, 2“Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They do not wash their hands before they eat.

3Yahshua replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? 4For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ 5But you say that if anyone says to his father or mother, ‘Whatever you would have received from me is a gift devoted to God,’ 6he need not honor his father or mother with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. 7You hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied correctly about you:

8‘These people honor Me with their lips,

but their hearts are far from Me.

9They worship Me in vain;

they teach as doctrine the precepts of men.’”

10Yahshua called the crowd to Him and said, “Listen and understand. 11A man is not defiled by what enters his mouth, but by what comes out of it.”

12Then the disciples came to Him and said, “Are You aware that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?”

13But Yahshua replied, “Every plant that My heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by its roots. 14Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”

15Peter said to Him, “Explain this parable to us.”

16“Do you still not understand?” Jesus asked. 17“Do you not yet realize that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then is eliminated? 18But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a man. 19For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, and slander. 20These are what defile a man, but eating with unwashed hands does not defile him.”

I have highlighted at the start of this brief sermon the words that show that the Pharisees are criticising Yahshua’s discliples for eating with unwashed hands, one of their pointless traditions, but not a law of God (in fact, these traditions add to the law, which is not allowed by God, it’s a sin to do so). Yahshua’s answers to the Pharisees and his explanations to his disciples are all about that tradtion, and he concludes with a statement that ‘eating with unwashed hands does not defile him’.

Nothing whatsoever in this whole episode, from either the Pharisees or from Yahshua, even remotely touches on the laws on unclean animals and foods, because every person present knew the law and would never argue against it, although I am sure the Pharisees hypocritically would eat swine flesh in secret anyway.

The defiling that Yahshua refers to is spiritual defilement, rather than bodily defilement, the thoughts and words of men defile them, whereas food eaten without washing one’s hands does not defile one’s heart or lead to impure thoughts and words and deeds, because the body simply expels any impurities.

Our bodies would also attempt to do the same thing with the manifold impurities contained within the flesh of shit-eating pigs, shrimps, crabs, rats and other such creatures, so eating them wouldn’t affect our hearts, words or deeds. But, God told us not to eat these creatures because they are literally unclean and bad for our health, so it would be both sinful and stupid to continue to eat them, once you know they are prohibited. That issue is not the same issue as the hand-washing traditions of the Pharisees, it’s another issue altogether, one of obeying the law, versus following traditions. To give a modern-day example, taking sacrament is a tradition, whereas remembering the Sabbath day or wearing tassels are both laws, and the churches do the former, but not the latter. Nothing new under the sun is there? Hopefully readers can see that Yahshua does not in any way allow our Father’s laws to be broken here, he just speaks against traditions, and in fact in verses 3-5 above, as he always did, he speaks FOR the law and against disobeying or dodging around it. No prophet of God ever spoke against the law, obviously, our kingdom is united on that front.

Another episode that is very often twisted to teach that unclean meats and animals somehow became allowed by God in the new scriptures is Peter’s vision before he met with the gentiles (peoples not of the tribes of Israel). This story is told in Acts 10, so I will quote most of that chapter below, with key verse highlighted:

1At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was called the Italian Regiment. 2He and all his household were devout and God-fearing. He gave generously to the people and prayed to God regularly. 3One day at about the ninth hour, he had a clear vision of an angel of God who came to him and said, “Cornelius!”

4Cornelius stared at him in fear and asked, “What is it, Lord?”

The angel answered, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor have ascended as a memorial offering before God. 5Now send men to Joppa to call for a man named Simon who is called Peter. 6He is staying with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the sea.”

7When the angel who spoke to him had gone, Cornelius called two of his servants and a devout soldier from among his attendants. 8He explained what had happened and sent them to Joppa.

9The next day at about the sixth hour,c as the men were approaching the city on their journey, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10He became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance.

11He saw heaven open and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12It contained all kinds of four-footed animals and reptiles of the earth, as well as birds of the air. 13Then a voice said to him: “Get up, Peter, kill and eat!”

14“No, Lord!” Peter answered. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.

15The voice spoke to him a second time: *****“Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.” *****

16This happened three times, and all at once the sheet was taken back up into heaven.

17While Peter was puzzling over the meaning of the vision, the men sent by Cornelius found Simon’s house and approached the gate. 18They called out to ask if Simon called Peter was staying there.

19As Peter continued to reflect on the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Behold, three men are looking for you.e 20So get up! Go downstairs and accompany them without hesitation, because I have sent them.”

21So Peter went down to the men and said, “Here am I, the one you are looking for. Why have you come?”

22“Cornelius the centurion has sent us,” they said. “He is a righteous and God-fearing man with a good reputation among the whole Jewish nation. A holy angel instructed him to request your presence in his home so he could hear a message from you.”

23So Peter invited them in as his guests. And the next day he got ready and went with them, accompanied by some of the brothers from Joppa.

24The following day he arrived in Caesarea, where Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends. 25As Peter was about to enter, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet to worship him. 26But Peter helped him up. “Stand up,” he said, “I am only a man myself.”

27As Peter talked with him, he went inside and found many people gathered together. 28He said to them, “You know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with a foreigner or visit him. ****But God has shown me that I should not call any MAN impure or unclean.**** 29So when I was invited, I came without objection. I ask, then, why have you sent for me?”

30Cornelius answered: “Four days ago I was in my house praying at this, the ninth hour. Suddenly a man in radiant clothing stood before me 31and said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your gifts to the poor have been remembered before God. 32Therefore send to Joppa for Simon, who is called Peter. He is a guest in the home of Simon the tanner, by the sea.’

33So I sent for you immediately, and you were kind enough to come. Now then, we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has instructed you to tell us.”

34Then Peter began to speak: “I now truly understand that God does not show favoritism, 35but welcomes those from every nation who fear Him and do what is right. 36He has sent this message to the people of Israel, proclaiming the gospel of peace through the messiah Yahshua, who is Lord of all.

37You yourselves know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee with the baptism that John proclaimed: 38how God anointed Yahshua of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how Yahshua went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with him.

39We are witnesses of all that he did, both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. And although they put him to death by hanging him on a tree, 40God raised him up on the third day and caused him to be seen— 41not by all the people, but by the witnesses God had chosen beforehand, by us who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. 42And he commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one appointed by God to judge the living and the dead. 43All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”

Cornelius was not a Jew, but was a believer and doer of good works, so he was given a plain vision and told to go and seek Peter in Joppa. Please note at this point, that the people of the tribes of Israel, under the laws given to Moses, were not allowed to associate with peoples of other nations, they were instructed to remain holy to God (Deuteronomy 7 has the details).

Peter is then given a vision of his own, ahead of the arrival of Cornelius, but Peter’s vision is metaphorical, or symbolic, rather than a plain and literal vision. He is shown all kinds of animals and creatures on a sheet and told by God to ‘get up, kill, and eat’ the creatures that he sees. But Peter knows the law and fears and loves God and therefore rightly refuses to eat any of the creatures. Even though the sheet with the unclean creatures descends three times, each time Peter refuses to kill and eat anything unclean, saying ‘“No, Lord!” Peter answered. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.

The vision ends, and we are shown and told immediately that the vision doesn’t relate literally to the unclean creatures themselves, because we are told that Peter is puzzled by the meaning of the vision. He knew with absolute certainty that the vision meant something, but at that point he didn’t know what. But he knew that it wasn’t a change to the laws regarding unclean animals, because God’s laws will be in force until heaven and earth have passed, as Yahshua noted earlier for us. Peter is however told at the end of the vision ‘*****“Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.” *****‘. So, we need to establish what God had made clean that was previously impure.

When Peter is visited by Cornelius and visits his home in Caesarea and meets with his family and close friends, Peter realises then what the vision was showing him, as he tells the assembly “You know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with a foreigner or visit him. ****But God has shown me that I should not call any MAN impure or unclean.****  and Peter also confirms’“I now truly understand that God does not show favoritism, 35but welcomes those from every nation who fear Him and do what is right.

They then discuss Yahshua and the gospel and then the final few verses tell us that the Holy Spirit descends on these God-fearing people from a foreign nation, to the amazement and joy of the Jews who were there with Peter.

The whole story is great one, and is very clearly not showing us God telling Peter to break one of His own laws (as if God would ever do that). Peter’s vision is simply showing that God can make anything clean if He wants to, and He wanted to give all people of all nations the chance to become clean in His eyes by His grace, and by their faith and belief in His son Yahshua. But He didn’t make unclean animals clean, and He won’t, not for as long as the current earth exists, because Yahshua told us ‘For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

Next, we will look at a few of Paul’s  letters, where he mentions food and what is allowed. The deceptions arise with these verses mostly due to ignoring the context, what Paul was actually discussing, which (once again) had nothing to do with changing the laws God gave to Moses about clean and unclean animals and food. We will start with 1 Corinthians 8, in its entirety:

1Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 2The one who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. 3But the one who loves God is known by God.

4So about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world, and that there is no God but one. 5For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many so-called gods and lords), 6yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we exist. And there is but one Lord, the messiah Yahshua, through whom all things came and through whom we exist.

7But not everyone has this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that they eat such food as if it were sacrificed to an idol. And since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. 8But food does not bring us closer to God: We are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.

9Be careful, however, that your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10For if someone with a weak conscience sees you who are well informed eating in an idol’s temple, will he not be encouraged to eat food sacrificed to idols? 11So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. 12By sinning against your brothers in this way and wounding their weak conscience, you sin against Christ.

13Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to stumble.

Nothing in this chapter relates to unclean foods as prohibited in Leviticus 11. It covers meat that has been used as an offering to an idol. I don’t think I need to say any more?

Next, 1 Corinthians 6, where one sentence is often quoted, out of context AND a bad translation too, in an effort to show that God’s food laws are no more. I will quote sufficient verses to show the context, with the start of verse 12 correctly translated:

9Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who submit to or perform homosexual acts, 10nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

12“The whole of me is lawful,” on the other hand, not everything is beneficial. “The whole of me is lawful,” one the other hand, I will not be mastered by anything. 13“Food for the stomach and the stomach for food,” but God will destroy them both. The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14By His power God raised the Lord from the dead, and He will raise us also.

15Do you not know that your bodies are members of messiah? Shall I then take the members of messiah and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16Or don’t you know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 17But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with Him in spirit.

Nothing whatsoever in this chapter is referring to food, the whole section I have quoted is about immorality and sin, and I have highlighted the sentence that gives us a list of sins and sinners. Food is not mentioned.

Paul then states that he is totally lawful, always abiding by God’s laws, and confirms that ‘on the other hand’ not everything is beneficial, and that he will not be mastered by those things which aren’t beneficial, which are the sins of the body he referred to in verses 9 and 10, and again in verse 15 and 16. The incorrect translation starts verse 12 with ‘everything is permissible for me’. Does anyone with an ounce of common sense and wisdom and the Holy Spirit really think that Paul is advocating a lawless free-for-all, either in terms of sexual sins or other sins, or somehow in relation to permissible foods? If you think that he is giving you license to go and do whatever you want to do, and to hell with the laws of God, then you are sadly lost in a world of lies and deceptions, because that is the inversion of the gospel, the inversion of righteous living to please God and for your own benefit and that of your neighbour’s, it is the doctrine of Satan to men, not that of God to men.

Also in 1 Corinthians, chapter 8, Paul talks about food sacrificed to idols, and it is important to note this chapter, because it provides some context for another chapter (Romans 14) that is the one most often used to try to nullify my Father’s food laws. So, here is all of 1 Corinthians 8:

1Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 2The one who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. 3But the one who loves God is known by God.

4So about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world, and that there is no God but one. 5For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many so-called gods and lords), 6yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we exist. And there is but one Lord, the messiah Yahshua, through whom all things came and through whom we exist.

7But not everyone has this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that they eat such food as if it were sacrificed to an idol. And since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. 8But food does not bring us closer to God: We are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.

9Be careful, however, that your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10For if someone with a weak conscience sees you who are well informed eating in an idol’s temple, will he not be encouraged to eat food sacrificed to idols? 11So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. 12By sinning against your brothers in this way and wounding their weak conscience, you sin against Christ.

13Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to stumble.

So Paul states that he would not eat meat again, but he’s talking about meat that could have been sacrificed to idols (such idols being nothing but carved wood of course, meaningless to those of us who serve the only true living God in heaven).

Paul touches on the same topic in 1 Corinthians 10:

18Consider the people of Israel: Are not those who eat the sacrifices fellow partakers in the altar? 19Am I suggesting, then, that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God. And I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot partake in the table of the Lord and the table of demons too. 22Are we trying to provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?

23“The whole of me is lawful,” on the other hand, not everything is beneficial. “The whole of me is lawful,” one the other hand, not everything is edifying. 24No one should seek his own good, but the good of others.

25Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, 26for, “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof.”e

27If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat anything set before you without raising questions of conscience. 28But if someone tells you, “This food was offered to idols,” then do not eat it, for the sake of the one who told you and for the sake of conscience- 29the other one’s conscience, I mean, not your own. For why should my freedom be determined by someone else’s conscience? 30If I partake in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of that for which I give thanks?

31So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.

Everything above relates only to food that may have been sacrificed to idols, and thereby to demons. Paul tells us not to risk doing that, especially if it risks the conscience of a brother or sister. He mentions meat sold in the market, but again, he is only referring to meats that have been possibly sacrificed to idols, he is not giving freedom to eat the meat of animals prohibited by God in Leviticus 11. Obviously.

Then we come to Romans 14, which has to be read in the same context as the epistle to the Corinthians, and is talking only about meat sacrificed to idols:

1Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on his opinions.a 2For one person has faith to eat all things, while another, who is weak, eats only vegetables. 3The one who eats everything must not belittle the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted him. 4Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

Paul continues in later verses:

14I am convinced and fully persuaded in the Lord Yahshua that nothing is unholy in itself. But if anyone regards something as unholy, then for him it is unholy. 15If your brother is distressed by what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother, for whom Christ died.

16Do not allow what you consider good, then, to be spoken of as evil. 17For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18For whoever serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.

19So then, let us pursue what leads to peace and to mutual edification. 20Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to let his eating be a stumbling block. 21It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything to cause your brother to stumble.

22Keep your belief about such matters between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who does not condemn himself by what he approves. 23But the one who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that is not from faith is sin.

Paul speaks of righteousness, which is the way of living a faithful and obedient life for God, and such a life cannot be lived if one is disobeying laws regarding which animals we are allowed to eat, and which are prohibited. To believe that Paul is abolishing the food laws, whilst speaking for a righteous life, is to believe he is contradicting himself in this chapter. If you believed that Paul was abolishing the food laws, you would also believe that Paul is speaking against Yahshua’s teaching, and against the laws taught by Moses too, which prohibit removing laws, or adding them. Believe any of that and you are lost of course. Sadly, Paul’s way of writing left him wide open for the Romans (who served Satan) to twist his words, especially in these latter times. And that leads nicely into 1 Timothy 4, which is copied below:

1Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.

3They will prohibit marriage and require abstinence from certain foods that God has created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4For every creation of God is good, and nothing that is received with thanksgiving should be rejected, 5because it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

We are in those later times now, very late indeed, and we have seen that marriage has been recently prohibited due to the faked pandemic. We also are starting to see the evil powers that serve Satan and the demons castigating the peoples of the world for eating too much meat, superficially to serve their fake climate change agenda, but in reality it’s simply to attempt to undermine what God has given us to eat. The key phrase above that speaks to the law on food is ‘from certain foods that God has created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth’. Those foods, only certain kinds, are described for us in Leviticus 11, and others that were not created to be received with thanksgiving are also mentioned in that chapter. So, it’s ironic that those who speak lies reverse the meaning of these verses so that they can eat swine flesh, prawns, crabs, rats, frogs, horses, or any other manner of unclean beast or creature.

Let’s finish by considering whether we believe Isaiah was a genuine prophet of God? His prophecies are part of the holy scriptures, so if you don’t believe his prophesies, or choose to ignore his warnings, you’re totally lost of course. His prophesies concluded with warnings to those who continue to eat swine flesh in these times, and at any time, starting with Isaiah 65:

1“I revealed Myself to those who did not ask for Me;

I was found by those who did not seek Me.

To a nation that did not call My name,

I said, ‘Here I am! Here I am!’

2All day long I have held out My hands

to an obstinate people

who walk in the wrong path,

who follow their own imaginations,

3to a people who continually provoke Me to My face,

sacrificing in the gardens

and burning incense on altars of brick,

4sitting among the graves,

spending nights in secret places,

eating the meat of pigs

and polluted broth from their bowls.

5They say, ‘Keep to yourself;

do not come near me, for I am holier than you!’

Such people are smoke in My nostrils,

a fire that burns all day long.

6Behold, it is written before Me:

I will not keep silent, but I will repay;

I will pay it back into their laps,

7both for your iniquities

and for those of your fathers,”

These people, who are smoke in the nostrils of my Father in heaven, think they are holy, but they sit in the dark, eating pig’s flesh and following their own imaginations. They will get what they deserve in due course. If you are eating unclean food like pig’s flesh, but you go to church on a Sunday and think you are holy, this prophesy is for you. So, repent, sinners.

Then we have Isaiah 66, the final chapter of the book:

15For behold, Yehovah will come with fire—

His chariots are like a whirlwind—

to execute His anger with fury

and His rebuke with flames of fire.

16For by fire and by His sword,

Yehovah will execute judgment on all flesh,

and many will be slain by Yehovah.

17“Those who consecrate and purify themselves to enter the groves—to follow one in the center of those who eat the flesh of swine and vermin and rats—will perish together,” declares Yehovah.

A stark warning to those who eat the flesh of swine, or rat flesh. The Chinese people will be annihilated by God, as well as billions of others, including the stupid deceived sinful churchian christians.

But this post is for those who are drawn to the light and the truth in these later times, times of great sorrows (but it’s darkest before the dawn, our time is close at hand now). These late-comers, recipients of another huge outpouring of grace from the throne of God in heaven, through His son the messiah Yahshua, who sits by His side, these people will heed this post, and heed the scriptures, and will know that God’s laws need to be obeyed through love and faith in order to enter His kingdom (after they have received His graceful acceptance whilst still sinners).

If anyone reading this posts knows of any other new scripture chapters and verses that are used out of context, or misinterpreted, or badly translated, in order to give the appearance that God’s food laws have been removed, please leave a comment or drop me a message on the contact page, and I will add it into the post, thanks.

I fondly remember the day I read Leviticus 11 and pondered the c. 3kg of swine flesh in my freezer. Bacon, gammon joints, sausages, it was all there. I considered giving it to family members, or to a homeless shelter. But I quickly realised I just had to throw it all in the dustbin, because I couldn’t harm my neighbours with unhealthy food, or encourage them to sin by eating forbidden foods. It was somewhat of a watershed moment for me I recall, as it was the first change I decided to make to my lifelong way of living, purely because it was necessary to be a holy man who wanted to please His loving God. It felt good, really good, to submit to one’s Creator God out of love and faith. I hope you get the same feeling, and bless my Father with your love and faith and devoted obedience to His wonderful laws.
