 DIETARY FOOD 

It's very interesting to know that the Scriptural books (Bible) does not always specifically or simply give us a straight answer right away, however, it still does give us the answer somehow. It depend on how the reader understand the way the book is written. Sometimes we will not be able find the simple answer right away or never will for whatever reason as well. I, Bro. Pouliot know this had happened to me and for those who are not fully with YAHUAH, our Almighty ONE who is the maker of the heaven and earth because we did not put ourselves enough in good heart to walk and listen HIS words. Even if we're blind or Deaf.

 

Some would random pick up the Scriptural books and read in a hurry to find the passages verse to fulfill the question. Some would explore online search engine, such as Google or Bing dot com to find the answer as well. Some would even ask someone who is smart enough as PhD level educators, school teachers or a priest. In the reality, if we explore all like that and think we're doing just find.... guess what, they would end up fail to get the whole truth properly.

 

In my experience, I tend to remind myself and to other to be extra careful how we explore and investigate for the truth. Whether it online network, using the computer program or software nor read any books and so for the Scriptural books as well. Because we would end up overlook what we find. Not putting ourselves enough patient to do the homework properly. To be able take all the time to read carefully and understand the whole concept of the history and the scriptural passage that actually teaches difference mind set thinking and the way the ancient write and speak. When I did this, I discovered something new I never saw or understood before. At the end, I research again to make sure before began I share about YAHUAH way and HIS teaching.

 

 

Now let get to the point about the Diet Food of this topic here. In this Biblical teaching about the food law I've been struggle the great deal about it. One of the uneasy topic I have been witnesses the non-stop debater of two side who argue about the clean and unclean food for year. One side debater proclaimed the food law in the Bible have change because we're living in the New Testament time, while the other side claimed the law of what food we shouldn't eat still apply today etc... On this document, I am going to explain and point out something I've learned that is totally different from what and how these two side debater have been proclaiming for year turnout not fully understanding the food law properly.

 

After I've done my hard investigate work of this subject, I've discovered and realized that both side of debater have NO idea what YAH really mean about the clean and unclean animal. How did they miss what I have seen and understand now. Hoping that both debater and you would take another chance to take another look over this subject matter. To better understand about the food law.

 

Since it is my understanding from many generation past until now, little by little, people have actually forgotten the clear teaching about the diet food which YAHUAH have given us since the beginning. The teaching book of the law (such as the Torah and the Holy Bible) have been corrupt the way it written apart from how the original manuscript was written. That mean we have to work harder in a deep way to see how it change and understand the way it original written. Let start by going back in time of Genesis and see where YAH first mentioned about the food law for animal and people. Chapter one, verse 29-30 and see what it said there:

 

Then YAH said, “I have just given you every green plant yielding seed that is on the surface of the whole land, and every tree, which has the fruit of a tree yielding seed. They are to be food for you. Also for every wild animal, every flying creature of the sky and every creature that crawls on the land which has life, every green plant is to be food.” And it happened so.

 

 

Noticed, “I have given you every green plant on the surface of earth, and every tree which has the fruit of yielding seed. They are to be food for you. Also for every wield animal etc....” does that sound like a vegetarian way, no meat? Not only human but also animal. Question is, why is that most animals we know today aren't vegetarian? Let keep that in mind because we will soon answer that question.

 

The next place to read in Genesis may find it odd. Chapter 9, verse 4 tell us different from how the chapter one food law said.

 

“The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth and upon every bird of the heavens, upon everything that creeps on the ground and all the fish of the sea. Into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything....”

 

 

How strange is it this passage verse said EVERY BEAST upon the earth, in sea and sky to be FOOD FOR US what??? He also immediately add by saying “But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood”. The next question here, what change between chapter one and nine? Did we miss something between those time-line of Genesis? It took me a while to notice and realize what did I miss? I did discovered one change that took place during the Genesis early time-line. That explain the reason why we are allow to eat the beast of the earth. Before pointing out exact where in the time-line, we must first understand that there is a lesson about CHANGE. That our Creator, YAHUAH (or even YahuSha) DO NOT CHANGE.... Here are four passage verses which lead and point out why YAH do not change his law of creation. It is best for you to pick up the Bible and read it on your own.

 

Psalm 55:19, Malachi 3:6, Matthew 5:17-20 and James 1:17.

 

 

Some believe the first change occur the day after the great flood of Noah's day. Because that where life on earth had to start over. Let first take a look at chapter 6:11-13 and see if that is true:

 

Now the earth was filled with violence. Yah saw earth, and behold it was ruined because all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth...

 

We do see why YAH had to destroy the evil living thing on earth who were filled with violence, notice about the evil violence upon the earth which YAH need to stop this and destroy it. The passage did not specifically explain what kind of violence did the people and animals do. We can believe that they have done the violence of killing. That mean, before Noah's day, people and animals must of been killing one another. It also may be possible that they were killing one another for food as well. Here why I say that, eighth generation (Jabal, in Cain’s line) after Adam's day, there is a passage that described as “the father of those who dwell in tents... have livestock” in Genesis 4:20. However, this text doesn’t say for certain that these livestock were kept for food. However, it is highly possible. Here another reason why I believe that. Let head back a little more, verses 3-12:

 

So it happened after some time that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to YAH, while Abel also brought the offering of the firstborn of his flock and their fat portions. Now YAH looked favorably upon to Abel, his offering but upon Cain's offering HE did not look favorably. Cain became very angry and his countenance fell...

 

Notice here in this passage verse, it appear that Abel was doing the burned offering of the animal fat just like the law that taught in the book of Leviticus 3:9. This is strongly possible that these people in those day had this animal livestock for sacrifices AND FOOD.

 

Now that we see people in Cain's and Abel's day who were the children of Adam, This is how Abel knew about the sacrifice offering law from their father's teaching. Now that we see the time-line of Abel with his parent, people and animals were killing life. This mean Adam and his wife must of experience the life changing where they had to sacrifice the animal with their children and the sin of killing of Cain's blood to the ground may be the first, but the first sin did not occur that time. The first sin appear on earth was when Adam and his wife disobey YAH's command before the children were born. When YAH told them not to eat the forbidden fruit tree. That was the first curse which bought upon them on earth. This leave me where in time-line and realized why not only human have fallen to sin upon this world to harm one another but everything living being according to Genesis 6:11-13. The same for how the book of Ecclesiastes also explained in chapter 3:19 that both, animals and human are to fallen to sacrifice their life to dust.

 

...befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that man hath no preeminence above a breath: for all vanity...

 

 

This is why YAH have seen a increase of horrible violence on earth. This had been happening way before Noah day. So now we found the reason why Genesis chapter one and nine have change about the food law. Why were all animals and people no longer a vegetarian. This explain why some of the animal and people aren't a vegetarian.

 

Since Genesis nine tell us that ALL creature are given food for us during Noah's day after the ark, people in those time seem to know about which animal are clean and unclean according to the instructed in Genesis chapter 7. Because of how Genesis chapter 7 instructed did not provide the kind of instruction like Leviticus chapter 11 had instructed. So the question here, what is the difference between Leviticus chapter 11 and Genesis chapter 7? Since Genesis chapter 7 did not specifically tell us which animal are clean and unclean, why?

 

The reason is, people before Noah's day must of already know about the animals that are clean and unclean. But during Moses day, instruction were made very clear and specifically. It is because people those day have forgotten and completely not understand a lot about the law which including about the clean and unclean animals. It took me a long while to see that difference.

 

I end up realized that after I've figure out and understand why YAH said ALL these animal are good and are not to reject according to what and how Act 10:15 & 28 or 1st Timothy 4:4 all fit with Genesis chapter one. Just before I've realized all this, I've decided to check on our English word for clean and unclean and see what the actual translated show us in Hebrew and Greek. Before finding out the proper written ancient word.

 

Let take a look at the Hebrew and Greek word for 'unclean' before we lead it to the Aramaic language. Because I believe Aramaic were the more proper language which I believe the original manuscript were likely written first. Before the translator in vain had been screwing up the real meaning. Since not every word shown as Aramaic are the same as Hebrew. According to Hebrew word for UNCLEAN (or impure) in Strong's dictionary. I found #2930, #2931 & #2932 shown me טָמֵא TAME' or טֻמְאָה TUM'AH which describe to me as to be unclean, become unclean, become impure - which also explain as defile, pollute, utterly, foul, filthy or filthiness.

 

Now the Greek word #0169 as ἀκάθαρτος spell out in English as akatharsia or #2839 κοινός spell out in English is koinos {koy-nos} which also describe as impure motives, impure, luxurious, unhallowed, profane, Levitically unclean or common.

 

Now let take a harder look for the Aramaic (ܐܪܡܝܐ‎ / Arāmît) language throughout the engine search for unclean, in a Adjective understanding. Here is what it look like  ܛܡܐ  and here what spell out in English TMA or TA'MA. This literally means ‘unchaste’ or ‘abominable’ (abomination) nor “an abhorrence (despised)”. It also describe as unclean living being, corpse, pollution, dirty, soiled, foul and even disgraced.

 

After I have decide to return the Hebrew Strong's, I have discovered #8441 for TO-E-VAH which also define as abomination, a disgusting thing, unclean etc...

 

Here is what I know in our English definition for unclean and also clean:

 

UNCLEAN

adjective, un·clean·er, un·clean·est.

  1. not clean; dirty.

  2. morally impure; evil; vile:unclean thoughts.

  3. Chiefly Biblical . having a physical or moral blemish so as to make impure according to the laws,especially the dietary or ceremonial laws:an unclean animal; unclean persons.

 

CLEAN

adjective, clean·er, clean·est.

  1. free from dirt; unsoiled; unstained:She bathed and put on a clean dress.

  2. free from foreign or extraneous matter:clean sand.

  3. free from pollution; unadulterated; pure:clean air; clean water.

  4. habitually free of dirt:Cats are considered clean animals.

  5. characterized by a fresh, wholesome quality:the clean smell of pine.

  6. morally pure; innocent; upright; honorable:to lead a clean life.

 

 

Now Look in the synonyms for unclean in thesaurus.com:

 

impure soiled bedraggled befouled besmirched black blurred common corrupt decayed defiled desecrated dusty evil feculent fetid filthy foul grimy messy muddy nasty polluted profaned putrescent putrid rancid rank rotten sloppy slovenly smeared smudged sooty sordid spotted squalid stable stained stale stinking sullied tainted tarnished unhealthful vile contaminated

 

 

Overall, it appear to me all these words point out to me as what is not good, unhealthy as unclean. To me about the unclean food, I think the word contaminated, the last synonyms word on the list above seem to me at least the best describable word for the “unclean” food. Since we know decontaminate mean neutralize or remove dangerous substances, radioactivity, or germs from (an area, object, or person). Synonyms: sanitize, sterilize, disinfect, clean, cleanse, purify etc...

 

This word decontaminate or contaminate is one of the best way for me to explain to people how I actually understand what unclean and clean food dose YAH mean. Which how I understand why YAHUAH had instructed Noah or Moses the specific animal that are best animals or for us to eat. Even so, I have also learned to realized that all animals also have sin in them, not just human. Meaning, even if we eat a clean animal like cow or lamb, it still unhealthy for us to eat than eating vegetables or fruits. Since eating vegetables or fruits are more healthier than eating meat or fish. Just as clean sea creature (fish) animals are more healthier than cow beef. That mean cow beef are healthier than eating pig.

 

Let take a look at the book of Leviticus chapter 10, verses 9-11 and see what dose this passage say about drinking beverage. Is there something difference about what unholy or holy there?

 

Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean; And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

 

This lesson above is the same example of unclean or clean food. How we should understand what are more healthy and not dangerous to drink for our temple (our body).

 

This is how and why I now understand why Romans 14:1-4 and 1st Timothy 4:4,5 said about YAH's creation animal are all good for us for a reason. We need to understand why in the beginning of Genesis, YAH had men and animals to eat fruit and vegetate only at the time. Until after sin came into the world, that what change.


“. . . so that upon you may fall the guilt of all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.”

 

That was found in Matthew 23:35 and that message explained why living creature on earth are eating the flesh. So now, we know ancient people before Noah's day did eat the flesh of the animal and did the sacrifice for YAH.

 

So, how can we understand the whole instruction better about YAH's diet food properly? Since we know before the forbidden fruit which Adam and his wife ate the forbidden fruit, all living creature were all eating only vegetables, fruits, herb and grain. Know this, people between Adam's and Noah's day, once live over 900 years. It may be very possible that most people in those day were mostly vegetarian or they just ate less on meat and a lot of vegetables? Until after Noah's day, people were not living longer because of their sinful violence had increase the way they live improperly. While killing and eating more unhealthy habit way of eating the beast and other kind of food. Deathly sin which had reduce their life time and kill them. This also go with how the animal treating one another and people as well.

 

Everything I have share here so far dose not mean we can go ahead and eat the unclean food. I still believe it is best for us to follow the food law, not to eat unclean animal for our sake to stay healthy. I only knowledge that if I ever get stuck in the middle of no where on sea, in a life boat and starve for 2 week without food, I will hunt for sea food even if it unclean kind of animal such as swordfish, dolphin, shrimp or lobster. Yet, get a rid of blood and cook it according to the law. To live another day than starve to death.

 

If you as reader here somehow still disagree with me all this topic so far because I don't understand what dose GOD say about “we're no longer under the law but under grace (Roman 6:14)” etc... because the Messiah paid off our sin once for all and we're no longer stuck with the food law etc.. Sorry to inform you, that isn't quite true because of how I completely understand what the passage verses in Romans 6:14-23 really mean. It does not mean in a principle way that the law had change, because “we are not under the law, but under grace”. This principle law does not mean to be released from one of the law or all. Like how we are require to obey, just as we should obey the Sabbath or adultery nor murder law? Whichever we choose to believe which law no longer apply, is still does not apply? Here one undertaking of what Paul made it very clear point of anticipating of how people should NOT abused this principle law in Romans 6:14-23. That it doesn’t authorize for us to sin any way how we do or believe by choosing what law no longer apply:

 

"What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace?

May it never be!"

 

 

Most importantly is that we need to be very careful how we read and understand what dose Paul really mean when he use the term "under the law"? This places to refer to a state in which someone hasn't been forgiven for their sins and is still not reconciled to the Almighty ONE, our Creator by accepting the Son sacrifice by faith HE send. Once again, this term doesn’t have to mean believing one is under the jurisdiction of the law, believes in obeying it. After all, any conservative person would say to the people, have to avoid theft, murder, coveting, lying, idolatry, etc...

 

By using the "jurisdictional" meaning of "under the law," rather than a dispensationalist (the time period during which the Creator ONE works with humanity in a certain way) one, even evangelicals would believe we're still "under the[se] laws"! Once again, look what Paul said "under the law" to mean "a state of being guilty of sin" in Romans 3:9, 19:

 

“What then? Are we better than they? Not at all, for we have previously accused both Yahudim (Yisraelites) and Greeks that they are all under sin”.

 

 

You might soon enough to realize and understand that the law which taught in the books of Torah or the Old Testament time NEVER CHANGE ever since. Because it the perfect foundation law of life on earth that can not break, yet Satan had been creaking it but not fully damage it to waste it. We should NOT ignore any of the law YAHUAH had speaken since the beginning and after Moses' day, because YAH created these foundation world and heaven in place that will never change. Except for Satan who is the one whom have try destroy us and the world since Adam's day.

 

Another reason why we must understand that, our heavenly Father had send a heavenly man to salvation us from that change whom Satan had been trying to kill all HIS creation people. That is why YAH have been retrained HIS people about the law to be right in the path again. To understand also why we have to sacrifices our life from death according to John 6:27:

 

"Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, YAH, has set His seal."

 

 

Once again, you may not realized also that Paul said in Romans 14:14-20 that all food is clean? The reason he say this is because he understood very clearly about the diet food law, which are healthier and not and if we are in a emergency situation because of starving reason, we can eat unclean animal if we only find one. In order to survive and take care of our temple body at best we can.

 

According to Peter's vision about the unclean and clean animals together on the great sheet bound of four corners, he at first did not understand what vision he saw really meant. Because he argued with YAH by saying, "Not so, Master! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean." Because the idea for him to eat an unclean animal was unthinkable thing to eat. Peter had experience this strange vision of the four corners large sheet which contained of all kinds of four-footed wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air (birds) for a reason.

 

There was two reason why YAH had interpreted this vision for Peter. After he finally understood why he was send to meet Simon and the three men in the first place. Where Peter end up seeing a large of gathering people who were Natsarim (believers of YAH) and unbelievers of other Gentile (nation people). Peter's vision was about them, not just about all of those four-footed wild beasts, and creeping things, and birds on the four corners large sheet. However, the lesson about Peter's vision was also about the clean and unclean animals which why he was confused and wonder why YAH had shown this kind of vision. He realized later that people can eat ALL created animal which YAH have given us for a reason.

 

Because of how Peter reply to YAH that he had never or would dare eat the unclean animal and this is what YAH said to Peter “you must not consider unholy” to these animals in verse 15. Like HE telling Peter that all these animal should not be label as unholy or bad but good of what HE created it for us for a reason etc... But at the same time, HE did instructed us which animal are clean and unclean as how we should understand which are better, safer and healthier diet food for us.

 

Since first Timothy 4:4,5 said:

 

“For every creature of YAH is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: for it is sanctified by the word of YAH and prayer”
 

 

 

Again as we already learned so far what Romans 14:1-4 have said:

 

“Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for YAH has accepted them. Who are you to judge someone else’s servant...”

 

We should by now understand about the food law YAH had been teaching HIS people since the early day whom people have many time ignore, forgotten or lost knowing the truth about the diet food law.
