How to Keep Our Healing Through the Dietary Meat Laws

In “Why People Who Get Healed Don’t Stay Healed,” we talked about what hinders us from staying healed after God has healed us. We can’t blame God or a lack of faith for us getting sick again and again. Today, we will talk about how to keep our healing once and for all.

The Secret to Staying Healed

The secret to staying healed is in what Yeshua says to us after getting healed. “Go and sin no more.” Like I said in before, this had nothing to do with salvation. It has everything to do with how we got that way in the first place. It could be the food we eat or the stress we stay under. In either case, Yeshua tells us not to do those things anymore. Yet, we keep doing them and then we run to him to fix our problems.

Dietary Meat Laws

God has given us the charge to go and sin no more. Exactly, how do we do that? Well, we can start with his dietary meat laws. He gives us a list of animals we can and cannot eat. He does this for our own health and safety.

From the Land

You can eat any animal that has a separate hoof that is completely divided and also chews the cud. They must have both characteristics in order to be eaten. They are vegetarian animals and a great digestive system. Examples of these are buffalo, cattle, deer, reindeer, antelope, gazelles, goats, rams, sheep, elks, moose, caribou, and giraffes.

Animals that only chew the cud or only have a divided hoof you cannot eat. Why? Because they are scavengers and some of them eat anything they see. Their job is to clean up the waste in the land such as dead carcasses. Examples of these are the camel, the hare, the coney, and the pig.

I know a lot of people eat pig and don’t see anything wrong with it. So for those who can’t give up the bacon with their eggs or the ham, take a look at this video. This video is about a woman who had a pork worm in her brain. (WARNING: very graphic.)

Here is another video on why we shouldn’t eat pork.

From the Water

You can eat anything that lives in the water that has fins and scales. Examples of these are Trout,
Tuna fish, Salmon, Halibut, Bluegills, Sunfish, Cod fish, Flounder, Perch, Herring, Sardines, Bass, Smelt, and Mackerels.

Whatever lacks fins and scales you cannot eat. God considers them unclean. Why? Because they are scavengers that clean up the ocean floors. Examples of these are crabs, snails, shrimps, lobsters, and catfishes.

From the Air

Some of the clean animals that can be eaten are chickens, turkeys, partridges, sparrows, doves, ducks, geese, pheasants, and quail.

Some of the unclean animals that cannot be eaten are eagles, vultures, ospreys, kites, buzzards, ravens, ostriches, screech-owls, seagulls, hawks, little owls, great owls, horned owls, pelicans, barn owls, cormorants, storks, heron, and bats. The reason is the same as before.

Today’s Animals

Eating those things which God forbids us is only going to keep us sick. We need to eat only good foods. However, in our day and age we must make sure that the animals we eat are vegetarian fed. Most animals are kept in cramped areas and fed other dead animals. So if you do eat meat then try to find animals that are free ranged and fed the way they are supposed to be fed.

While I’ve decided against showing a video on the meat industry, you can view one listed in the resources below. I decided to let you decide whether or not you can handle the video. It is a horrible thing in how they kill the animals.
