GOD’S ETERNAL FOOD LAW
Church of Jesus Christ Kinsman
The eating of pork is an abomination according to God’s law. Swine is always referred to negatively in the Bible and is taken for granted as the food of the godless. Throughout the Bible, Hebrews and Israelites did not eat pork. Not one instance can be found, throughout the entirety of the Scripture, of a righteous man consuming swine.
Modern day “Christians” are fond of claiming that the Mosaic food laws—and the Mosaic Law in its entirety—were abolished with Christ’s finished work. They go on to claim that this is affirmed in Peter’s vision and by Christ’s teachings in the Gospels.
When one objectively examines Christ’s New Testament teachings their spiritual context is clearly apparent. Jesus is condemning what was known in His time as the “Tradition of the Elders”—the Talmudic hypocrisy of the Pharisees—known commonly today as Judaism (Judaic Rabbinism). In Matthew 15v17 Christ tells us:
“…Whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught.”
And likewise, Mark 7v19:
“It entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats.”
Here the word “meats” is translated for the Greek word “broma” (Strong’s #1033). Liddell and Scott’s Greek-English Lexicon gives the definition of broma as, “That which is eaten, food, meat.” So we see that broma in Mark 7v19 does not explicitly mean meat in a carnivorous sense, as in the muscular tissues of animals. Webster’s Dictionary gives its first definition of meat as:
1) “Food in general; any kind of nourishment.” (See note #1)
Here in Matthew and Mark there is no question of unclean food, for anything not ordained by God in the Mosaic Law was simply not considered food. Furthermore, in both instances the disciples were not accused of eating unclean meats: the scripture tells us they were eating bread. Peter confirms this in Acts 10:14 where he tells the Lord, “I have never eaten anything common or unclean.” Christ’s teachings regarding food in Matt 15:19-20 and Mark 7:21-32 are concluded with an admonition against spiritual wickedness, once again proving spiritual context.
Modern day “Christians” also confound Peter’s vision to prove hands down that a man can eat any animal. These learned theologians are fond of quoting from Acts chapter 10v15—“What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common,” not realizing the condemnation this scripture brings to their own position. “What God has made clean” is stated emphatically in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14. Verse 16 continues:
“This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven. Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate.”
If this vision is so easily interpreted by today’s laymen as the abolition of dietary food laws then why was it such a perplexing mystery to the Apostle Peter? Is the modern everyday Christian just “smarter” than the Church Father to whom Jesus Christ gave the keys to the Kingdom? We think not. If these Bible thumping cretins read on to verse 28, they would see that Peter’s vision was an allegory meaning “…God has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean.” This Scripture tells us of the redemption of the “gentiles”; gentilized Israelites being brought back in, or remarried into God’s racial family—the fulfillment of Hebrews 8v8—which is one of the main themes of the New Testament.
Whether or not one believes that the entire Mosaic Law, or only parts of the law are still in effect becomes a moot point in the light of God’s eternal law, for Eternal Laws of God transcend Mosaic Law.
In Genesis 4, we read the story of Cain murdering his brother Abel. Cain is punished for this, which shows us that murder is against God’s eternal law, for prohibition against murder precedes the Mosaic Law. This prohibition against murder is affirmed in the Mosaic Law. If the Mosaic Law is abolished then are we to believe that murder is no longer against God’s Law? God forbid!
We have established the validity of God’s Eternal Law and it indeed applies to the food laws as well. Before the Mosaic Law was given to the Israelites we read in Genesis 7 of the story of Noah. God commands Noah to “take with you seven pairs of each kind of clean animal, but only one pair of each unclean animal.” This is proof positive that dietary laws were in effect before the Law of Moses, which places them under the Law Eternal. The Mosaic Law confirms these food laws in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14. Specifically “the swine…he is unclean.” (Leviticus 11:7)(Deuteronomy 14:8) Just as murder is against God’s Eternal Law, so is the eating of pork.
No amount of minimization or justification changes the negative connotation of swine in the Bible. Time and time again both the Old and New Testaments remind us that the pig is an animal of the basest defilement.
In the New Testament our Savior tells us, “Give not that which is Holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine.” (Matthew 7:6) Again, we are told of how Jesus casts a legion of demons into an herd of swine. (Mark 7:9-16) (Luke 8:30-33) One must wonder at the fact that the demons themselves besought Christ to cast them into the swine. Why would a Christian seek to ingest a beast that demons are eager to enter?
In the Old Testament book of 2 Maccabees, we find our Judean ancestors preferring torturous death to the eating of swine. As the story goes, a Judean mother and her seven sons are arrested by the heathen king who had them tortured and fried alive in a man-sized pan because they refused to eat pork. (2 Maccabees 7:1-42) These Judeans chose this fate rather than to abandon the laws of our God and ancestors. May their sacrifice never be in vain. In the name of Jesus Christ let all followers of the Way abstain from swine as a memorial to these saintly martyrs.
The vast majority of Christians do not understand exactly how filthy and unclean a swine really is when compared to a clean animal such as a cow. Here are some “Pig and Pork Facts” from Clinton Fultz:
“A pig is a real garbage gut. It will eat anything including urine, excrement, dirt, decaying animal flesh, maggots, or decaying vegetables. They will even eat the cancerous growths off other pigs or animals. The meat and fat of a pig absorbs toxins like a sponge. Their meat can be 30 times more toxic than beef or venison. When eating beef or venison, it takes 8 to 9 hours to digest the meat so what little toxins are in the meat are slowly put into our system and can be filtered by the liver. But when pork is eaten, it takes only 4 hours to digest the meat. We thus get a much higher level of toxins within a shorter time. Unlike other mammals, a pig does not sweat or perspire. Perspiration is a means by which toxins are removed from the body. Since a pig does not sweat, the toxins remain within its body and in the meat. Pigs and swine are so poisonous that you can hardly kill them with strychnine or other poisons. Farmers will often pen up pigs within a rattlesnake nest because the pigs will eat the snakes, and if bitten they will not be harmed by the venom. When a pig is butchered, worms and insects take to its flesh sooner and faster than to other animal's flesh. In a few days the swine flesh is full of worms. Swine and pigs have over a dozen parasites within them, such as tapeworms, flukes, worms, and trichinae. There is no safe temperature at which pork can be cooked to ensure that all these parasites, their cysts, and eggs will be killed. Pig meat has twice as much fat as beef. A 3 oz T bone steak contains 8.5 grams of fat; a 3 oz pork chop contains 18 grams of fat. A 3 oz beef rib has 11.1 grams of fat; a 3 oz pork spare rib has 23.2 grams of fat. Cows have a complex digestive system, having four stomachs. It thus takes over 24 hours to digest their vegetarian diet causing its food to be purified of toxins. In contrast, the swine's one stomach takes only about 4 hours to digest its foul diet, turning its toxic food into flesh. The swine carries about 30 diseases which can be easily passed to humans. This is why God commanded that we are not even to touch their carcass (Leviticus 11:8). The trichinae worm of the swine is microscopically small, and once ingested can lodge itself in our intestines, muscles, spinal cord or the brain. This results in the disease trichinosis. The symptoms are sometimes lacking, but when present they are mistaken for other diseases, such as typhoid, arthritis, rheumatism, gastritis, MS, meningitis, gall bladder trouble, or acute alcoholism. The pig is so poisonous and filthy, that nature had to prepare him a sewer line or canal running down each leg with an outlet in the bottom of the foot. Out of this hole oozes pus and filth his body cannot pass into its system fast enough. Some of this pus gets into the meat of the pig. There are other reasons grounded in biological facts that could be listed to show why pigs and swine should not be eaten. But a true Christian should only need one reason why not to eat this type of food because God prohibited it.”
Just as the good Lord does not expect us to eat feces and piss, and chew up maggots, he does not expect us to eat a vile beast that does.
The Bible admonishes us to “read, study, and learn to shew thyselves approved.” Any and every biblical doctrine must not be taken for granted just because some “preacher” attests to it. Many so-called “biblical truths” that have been taught to us from our youths can easily be disproved with only a perusal of a Greek lexicon, Bible dictionary, or if you can believe it, by simply studying your Bible in prayer and earnest, for the Bible is its own best commentary. Truth loving, God fearing Christians will read this and learn the seriousness of this subject. Its magnitude forces the Christian to a fanatical stance regarding the food laws, choosing not only to die for our beliefs, but like the Maccabees of old, utterly destroy those that would reduce us to spiritual slavery by forcing us to break the Holy Laws of God. Praise and glory to Jesus Christ Almighty—death to all who oppose him (Luke 19:27). Hail His Victory!
The definition reads:
1) Food in general; any kind of nourishment.
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you
“Moving thing” is translated for the Hebrew “ramas”(#7430)--a reptile or any other rapidly moving animal: - that creepeth, creeping (moving) thing.
“Meat” as used here is from the Hebrew “oklah”(#402) food: - consume, devour, eat, food, meat. Oklah is the same word used in Gen.1v29-30, and in these verses refers to “herbs bearing seed” and “trees.”
The Septuagint renders Gen.9v3 as:
“And every reptile which is living shall be to you for meat, I have given all things to you as the green herbs.”
“Meat” here is translated from the Greek “brosin”(from broma).
“Reptile” here is translated from the Greek “herpeton”(#2062)
From Liddell and Scott’s Greek-English Lexicon:
Herpeton—A walking animal, quadruped… II. A creeping thing, reptile…
When examining these scriptures and definitions a Christian must take the entire context of the Bible into consideration. A man who only wishes to find some “loophole” in God’s Law that allows him to eat swine could use this verse as such, but the man who loves truth sees that the Bible in its entirety condemns the eating of unclean foods.
In John 7v24 our Savior admonishes us to “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” Even if this one Genesis verse appears to the scoffers to allow the eating of unclean food, a man in whom the Spirit of Truth resides will judge righteous judgment and recognize that the entire weight of the Scripture crushes any misinterpretation of Gen.9v3. “Any moving thing” can only mean “any quadruped ordained by God as clean.”
From the Chaldean Translation of Genesis 9:3, the intent was serpent, or reptile, however in context of the surrounding verses, which order the absolute slaughter of "beasts with hands" that Kill man, the appropriate connotation of Gen 9:3 is to destroy all children of the fallen angels, called "Nephalim", down to their children.
NAT Genesis 9:1 The Heavenly Hosts venerated Noah and his sons, ordering them to breed and increase to refill the land.
Darby Gen 9:1 And God blessed Noe and his sons. And he said to them: Increase, and multiply, and fill the earth.
2 The fear and terror of you will be with mammal of this land, upon every bird of the sky, upon everything that swarms on your homeland, and upon all of the fish of the waters, they are compelled into your dominion.
Gen 9:2 And let the fear and dread of you be upon all the beasts of the earth, and upon all the fowls of the air, and all that move upon the earth: all the fishes of the sea are delivered into your hand.
Read the following verses as in their own context, it is clear that this is an order to cleanse the lands of all non-Aryan peoples, from the Nephalim, "reptiles" alias, "Children of the Serpent" as well as the "Beast" races of Genesis 9:5... So we have "Reptiles" as the literal translation, "Moving Thing" which for all purposes would even justify cannibalism, or the clear idea that this was not a food law, but an order to ethnically cleanse our lands of all non-Aryans..
3 Every reptile that exists is yours to destroy, even the young sprouts, all of them are yours.
Gen 9:3 And every thing that moveth, and liveth shall be meat for you: even as the green herbs have I delivered them all to you:
In ancient Biblical Language, consuming, as if to eat, also means to kill, further, "sprouts" or "green herbs" is also symbolic of both infantile plants as well as infantile humanity, in Psalm 137:7-9 "Remember, O Yahweh, the children of Edom, in the day of Jerusalem: Who say: Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof. 8 O daughter of Babylon, miserable: blessed shall he be who shall repay thee thy payment which thou hast paid us. 9 Blessed be he that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock." Hereby is an example of infanticide, clearly, as we know, Edomites were mixed with Canaanites and also with Nephalim Bloodlines. "Serpents, Reptiles Hebrew - Vipers - Greek"
4 Only the flesh with the Spirit, of your blood shall not be destroyed.
Gen 9:4 Saving that flesh with blood you shall not eat.
5 Most certainly for the bloodshed of your lives, you shall tread upon the murderous hands of all non-Aryans, and for the murderous hands of Aryans, at the hands of his own brothers, I order the taking of life from the Aryan.
Gen 9:5 For I will require the blood of your lives at the hand of every beast, and at the hand of man, at the hand of every man, and of his brother, will I require the life of man.
6 Whomever spills Aryan blood, Aryans shall spill their blood, because in the spiritual nature of the Heavenly Hosts the Aryan was created.
Gen 9:6 Whosoever shall shed man's blood, his blood shall be shed: for man was made to the image of God.
7 You shall breed and increase, to be abundant in the land, exceedingly.
Gen 9:7 But increase you and multiply, and go upon the earth and fill it.
As in comparison to Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when Aryans bred and multiplied upon the surface of the higher ground  and daughters were begotten, 2 that the rebels of the Heavenly Hosts  took for themselves the daughters of Aryans because they were beautiful; and they took their choice of these woman, away from their kind,  whomever they selected.  3 And Yahweh said My anger shall no longer be concealed  from the Aryans, for they are also accountable for the use of their bodies:  I will give them a continuance of one hundred and twenty rotations.  4 There were evil ones  on the land at that time, and also the times that followed, when the rebels of the Heavenly Hosts procreated  with daughters of Aryans, and they produced offspring to them, these were the tyrants  from the beginning,  men of infamy.  NAT Clearly these hybrids survived the Flood, since the flood was regional, as from original translation of the Scriptures.
The Food Laws are in effect, and as this article points out, only through misunderstanding, do those whom deny such a fact, justify their error....
