Sanctified By The Word Of God.

Today we hear of many people saying that this food is good for us, or that food is bad for us. Some say that in the Bible there are foods that God does not want us to eat quoting passages from the Old Testament.

Now I go on the authority of Jesus teachings in the New Testament, where we read that in the last days there shall come people that shall speak lies telling us that we cannot eat many sorts of foods, even though they know that God has created all things to be received with a prayer of thanks, as it is written,

In the latter times some shall depart from the faith “And commanding to abstain from meats which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good and nothing to be refused if it be received with thanksgiving for it is sanctified by the Word of God and prayer,” {1Timothy 4 v 3, 4 & 5}.

Jesus said, “Are you so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive that whatsoever thing from without entereth into man it cannot defile him,” {Mark 7 v 18.} By our Lord saying this, the Bible says that all food is good and nothing is to be rejected, yes, he purged all meats as the Bible says in Mark chapter 7. “What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common”, {Acts 11 v 9}.

This scripture God spoke to Peter when he saw a vision of a great sheet, being let down from Heaven by its four corners; where there were all sorts of animals, he heard God’s voice saying kill and eat. Now, let us exercise the wisdom that God has given us, we are all made differently, some foods may not taste good to some of you, and to others it tastes fine, or some foods may not suit your body, but may be perfectly good for others.

It is your choice what you eat, so, let us conclude, you can eat anything that suits you personally, it is your choice, do not let anyone tell you otherwise, always enjoy your food for it is truly sanctified by the Word of God. God bless you always.
