Animals in the wild follow the instincts God placed within them when He created them. Thus an animal in the wild knows by natural instinct programmed into them by God, where to go to obtain the nutrients necessary to sustain life immediately upon birth. Do they not instinctively seek out mother’s milk supply without any help from man? And after these wild animals are weaned, do they not know instinctively and by mother’s example, and without mans help, what to eat in order to sustain life? We call them dumb animals, but they are far wiser than we humans when it comes to how to nourish and maintain their God created physical bodies. MAN’S NATURAL INSTINCT IS GONE AND HE HAS FORGOTTEN WHAT GOD SAID Adam and Eve not only had this natural instinct programmed into them by God at creation, but God also told them what they should consume for food in Genesis 1:29. Sadly, over the years this natural instinct has been programmed out of man by this world’s practices and teachings. And sadly, man has long ago failed to take head to what God said should be consumed for nourishment in Genesis 1:29. As a result, almost every physical and even psychological problems we humans experience during our entire lifetime, other than accidents, is caused by the placing of wrong food or drink into our body, and mans failure to realize that the physical and emotional problems being experienced are merely the body reacting to that wrong fuel. If this be true, what can the doctor do to help us when we experience these breakdowns? If the problems we are experiencing are caused by wrong food and drink, can these problems be corrected by placing more contaminants into the body in the form of drugs (poisons)? Or rather will not these additional contaminants produce more problems? And if the problem is caused by bad fuel, will radiating (burning) the offending part or removing the part surgically restore health? With that as an introduction, let’s see if we can determine what part we have been playing in the creation of the physical and psychological problems we have been experiencing. We will also learn why others get sick – including the doctors we go to for body repair – the nutritionists who tell us what we should eat – the pastors of our churches who are concerned about our spiritual welfare – and yes, even the members of our own church and family. Friends, everyone in today’s society gets sick except those who have gone back to taking heed to what God told them they should eat to properly nourish their physical bodies in Genesis 1:29. May what follows inspire you to return to nourishing your body with the foods God told us we should nourish our bodies with. WHAT SUBSTANCES CAUSE THE BODY TO EXPERIENCE BREAK DOWNS? “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” In context these words of Jesus was dealing with the spiritual, but I want to use this text to share another truth, only this truth is concerning the physical. What follows is truth that can set you free from most every physical and emotional problem you are experiencing. Before I begin listing the foods and drinks and other toxic things we are placing into or onto our body that make us sick, I want to say as I do in every seminar prior to providing the answer to this question – I LOVE YOU. Because what I am about to reveal here and in the weeks that follow, is the cause of almost every physical and psychological problem people experience during their entire lifetime. Please don’t turn me off yet! I want to help you. Being sick is not fun! Nor do most people find it an enjoyable experience going to the doctor, taking all those drugs, and paying all that money in an effort to get rid of those pesky or sometimes life threatening physical problems. And if you will continue reading on and not turn me off, I will show you how you can usually, quite quickly and inexpensively, regain your health. In III John 2 we learn that God wants us to “BE IN HEALTH”. Here is what the bible says in III John 2:
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”In other words, God wants us to be as well in our physical body as we are in our spiritual soul. So let’s discount it being God’s fault or desire for us when we get sick. So if God wants us to be in health and we now know that is true, why do we humans get sick? The answer to that question is found in Proverbs 26:2 where we read “so the curse causeless shall not come.” Every curse of sickness has a “cause” – so let’s start looking for the cause of the physical and emotional problems we experience, rather than simply trying to suppress the symptoms of these problems. WHAT WAS GOD’S ORIGINAL PLAN FOR THE NOURISHMENT OF MAN? To ascertain the cause of our physical problems, we need to go back to chapters one and two of the book of Genesis and see if we can find the answer to that question:
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward of Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for FOOD . . . .” (Genesis 2:7-9) “AND GOD SAID, behold, I have given you every herbAccording to Scriptures, man’s diet in the Garden of Eden and for the next 1,700 years after man was expelled from the Garden, consisted of the 100% raw plant-sourced foods (fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts) found in the garden that God had told man he was to consume in Genesis 1:29. During the 1,700 years following God’s instructions, following this exclusive Genesis 1:29 garden foods diet, man lives to an average age of 912 years (age of Patriarchs at death) without a single recorded instance of sickness. But then comes the flood and here is what the Bible tells us happened to all the garden foods man had been instructed by God to consume and man had been consuming for the previous 1,700 years.
bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat .” (Genesis 1:29)
“And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth: and all the high hills that were under the whole heavens were covered.” (Genesis 7:19)Because all garden foods had been destroyed by flood waters, God gives man permission to deviate from that Genesis 1:29 diet for the very first time since He had created man. And what does God allow man to consume?
“Every moving thing that liveth shall be meatI believe God allowed the consumption of this clean animal flesh for survival purposes only. But was that flesh the nourishment God had designed the human physical body to be nourished with, or did God just allow man to consume the animal flesh for a brief period of time to sustain life until plant foods would once again be available? SICKNESS RESULTS WHEN MAN LEAVES GARDEN FOODS So, what are those substances I have been preaching against for the past 18 years and have personally abstained from? What are the substance that when eliminated have made it possible for tens-of-thousands to recover from their physical and even psychological problems? I’ll name the single most dangerous and destructive substance consumed first: ANIMAL SOURCE FOODS (Number one cause of sickness) Once man began to consume the flesh of animals, sickness begins to occur and man’s lifespan begins to drop dramatically from an average age of 912 on the 100% plant based diet to 110 years in 10 generations after the consuming of animal flesh began. (See Genesis 6:50 the last verse in Genesis: “So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old . . . .”) Research and the testimonies of tens-of-thousands who have written me over the past 18 years reveal animal sourced foods are the single most dangerous and destructive substances we can place into our physical bodies. They are the cause of some 90% of all the physical problems being experienced by mankind today. Following is just a partial list of the physical problems being experienced today that are caused by the consuming of animal sourced foods: heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS), diverticulosis, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, colitis, ulcerative colitis, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, asthma, heartburn, acid stomach, and the list goes on and on. And if you would like scientific documentation as to why animal sourced foods are the cause or contributing cause of the majority of the physical problems being experienced today, let me encourage you to read The China Study, by Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Dr. Campbell has done more research on the relationship of diet to disease than any other researcher in history – over 50 years of research. And he concludes his findings as succinctly as possible by stating: “only small intakes of animal products were associated with significant increases in chronic degenerative diseases.” ANIMAL FAT CAUSES CLOGGED ARTERIES, HEART ATTACKS AND STROKES The likelihood of a person who never consumes animal sourced foods ever suffering a heart attack, stroke or clogged arteries is almost zero. Yet almost everyone who consumes animal sourced foods has some degree of narrowing of their arteries caused by fat build up in their arteries. In fact, they are finding that children who consume animal sourced foods by the age of four are already showing fat build up on their arteries, and autopsies of 18 year old soldiers who died on the battle field reveal arteries already to be as much as 50% blocked. WHERE IS ALL THAT ARTERY BLOCKING FAT COMING FROM? Did you ever purchase a whole chicken from the meat section of your grocery store? Did you ever notice when you opened the back end of that chicken the huge hunk of fat that was sitting there in the cavity? Did you think you were getting rid of all the fat in the chicken when you threw that big glob of fat away? Friend, a chicken breast, with skin removed and then broiled, still contains some 20% fat. Did you ever purchase a steak or hamburger from the meat section of your grocery store? Did you ever notice the fat that oozed out of it as you cooked it? Did you think that you had gotten rid of all the fat when you poured it down the drain of your kitchen sink? Well think again, because a high percentage of that fat remained in the steak or hamburger when you ate it. WHERE DOES THAT INGESTED FAT GO Just like the excess fat you pour down your drain will eventually clog up your sewer system and hinder the sink drainage, the fat that remains in these animal foods will eventually clog up your arterial system and hinder the free flow of blood throughout your body. This blood is called “the life of the flesh”in Leviticus 17:11. When fat is ingested, much of it ends up in your blood, and it doesn’t all leave your blood. Rather, some of this fat remains in the blood and starts clinging to and building up on the arterial walls, hindering the blood flow. This hindered blood flow causes the heart to have to pump harder to push the blood through those narrowed arteries, resulting in high blood pressure. The primary cause of high blood pressure is the hindering of the free flow of blood through the arteries. HOW DOCTORS DEAL WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE & CLOGGED ARTERIES When high blood pressure is detected by the doctor, does the doctor advise the patient to stop consuming animal sourced foods (the cause of the problem) as a way to lower blood pressure OR RATHER does the doctor prescribe a drug to chemically lower that high blood pressure? And does that blood pressure medicine correct the cause of the high blood pressure; or rather does that drug simply suppress the symptom? Obviously the drug doesn’t correct the problem because the doctor tells that person they will have to continue to take the drug to keep the high blood pressure suppressed for the rest of their life. And if that person taking the drug continues to consume fat laden animal flesh, the arteries will continue to narrow and eventually become so clogged with fat that such surgeries as by-pass and stents often have to be employed. A by-pass is where they by-pass the fat clogged section with new piping. A stent is used to force open the fat clogged artery to allow blood to flow past that clogged area. But what folks don’t realize is that by-pass or stent doesn’t resolve the problem, because if they continue to consume fat laden animal foods, the fat will continue to build up and additional stents and by-passes are often necessary. And the conclusion of all that fat build up, regardless of how much blood pressure medication a person takes or how many stents and by-passes a person receives, that person usually ends up dying of a heart attack or stroke, if cancer doesn’t kill them first (another problem usually caused by the consuming of animal sourced foods). And to think that all of this high blood pressure, drugs to lower it, stents, by-passes, and early and untimely deaths due to a heart attack or stroke could have been easily prevented if that person had not consumed those fat laden burgers, steaks, chicken, and other fat laden flesh. And let’s not forget the animal fat in dairy products. In fact, one of the most dangerous fat laden substances you can place into your body is cheese. Please don’t forget – I LOVE YOU! Next week, the good Lord willing, we will share how the high amounts of protein found in animal sourced foods affect the body and also how the body deals with all the acidity found in animal sourced foods, and more.
