In last week’s Health Tip we shared how Satan has been using food for a very long time to deceive believers in an effort to destroy their health, shorten their lifespan, and thus prevent Christians from fulfilling the ministry God called them to. In this Health Tip I want to pick up where we left off by taking a long, hard look at the differences between God’s Original Diet as found in Genesis 1:29 and Satan’s Alternative Diet (SAD), the diet most people (including most Christians) are consuming today.
God's Original Diet (GOD)Below is God’s Original Diet. Notice that the first letter of each of the three words spells the word “GOD”. Yes friends, Genesis 1:29 literally contains the “GOD” diet, the very diet God Himself designed for our well-being and for our physical bodies to be properly nourished with! Please notice who the speaker is in the first three words of this verse:
“AND GOD SAID, Behold,, I have given you every herb (VEGETABLE) 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 (FOOD).This “GOD” diet as found in Genesis 1:29 was comprised of 100% raw garden foods and is the very diet that sustained Adam and Eve in the garden, and continued to sustain mankind for the next 1,700 years following man’s expulsion from the garden; right up until the flood that destroyed all plant foods. (See Genesis 7:19 & 24) During that 1,700 years of Biblical history, when man lived exclusively on this diet of 100% garden foods, the average lifespan of biblical patriarchs was 912 and there is not a single recorded instance of sickness during those years. But then comes the flood, and what did that flood do? – It destroyed all garden foods. Only after all garden foods had been destroyed did God allow man to deviate from that original 100% plant-based diet. I personally believe God allowed that deviation for survival purposes because all garden foods had been destroyed by the flood. And what was that deviation? God allowed man to get a taste of animal flesh. (See Genesis 9:3) Sadly, once man got a taste of animal flesh, Satan stepped in and started using that taste of animal flesh to tempt man to abandon God’s original, 100% plant-based, Genesis 1:29 diet. See Genesis 16:3 and Numbers 11:13-20 to see just how successful Satan was in getting man addicted to this destructive animal flesh. It might also be noted that it was only after man began to consume the flesh of animals and to cook his food, that physical breakdown began and sickness entered the human race. Ever since those initial deviations from God’s Original Diet, Satan has been using not only animal flesh — the primary cause of most physical breakdown to this current day — but also refined sugar, refined grains, and table salt to destroy man’s health. Satan continues to this very day to add increasingly destructive so-called "food items" to his arsenal in an effort to entice man to deviate ever further from God’s original intent for proper nourishment for the human physical body. I call this deviation from God’s Original Diet . . . .
Satan's Alternative Diet or the Standard American Diet (SAD)Let's compare the composition and nutrient values of God’s Original Diet, the diet God — the creator of our physical bodies — told us we should consume in Genesis 1:29 for the proper nourishment of our physical bodies, with the diet most Christians as well as most others are consuming today. I also want us to note that it took bodily movement (exercise) for man to obtain these Genesis 1:29 foods (see Genesis 3:18-19). I can still remember my grandmother out in the garden at sun-up hoeing the weeds from the garden and my grandfather walking behind his horse drawn plow. Up until recently, man had to exercise in order to obtain his food. But something happened – man left the farm, moved into the big cities, and depended on others to provide the food. The result? Man’s diet has drifted ever further from God’s Original Diet and no longer does it require exercise for most people to obtain their food. Let us now take a look at the stark differences between what God told us we should eat in Genesis 1:29 with what most people are consuming today. Hopefully this comparison will shock each reader sufficiently into considering a diet and lifestyle change. First we will take a look at the nutritional content of God’s Original Diet and then compare it with Satan’s Alternative Diet (as Rhonda calls it) or the Standard American Diet (SAD):
- God’s Original Diet as is clearly outlined in Genesis 1:29, consisted of 100% plant sourced foods, with ZERO refined and processed foods, and ZERO dairy or animal products, and these plant sourced foods were all consumed in their RAW form as served up by nature.
- Satan’s Alternative Diet (SAD), by contrast, consists of only about 7% plant sourced foods, 51% refined and processed foods, 42% dairy and animal products, and almost all being consumed in their COOKED form.
Comparing God's Original Diet With The SAD DietLet’s begin by comparing the percentage of food consumed in its raw form, with the percentage of foods consumed in its cooked form in each of the diets. Notice that the percentage of RAW on the SAD diet is almost nonexistent while the percentage of RAW on the “GOD” diet is 100%. This is a huge factor, and here’s why: Our physical bodies are comprised of approximately 100 trillion LIVING cells that were designed by God to be nourished exclusively with LIVING (raw) plant sourced foods. It is impossible for LIVING cells to be properly nourished with DEAD or COOKED food and yet that is what the SAD is comprised almost exclusively of. NOTE: Every animal in the wild, carnivorous or vegan, ever since creation to this present day, instinctively eats all food in its living and raw form, as served up by nature. Only man, who has lost all natural instincts, attempts to nourish his body with foods that have had all life force (enzymes), and most of the nutrients, destroyed by the heat in cooking.
The SAD diet contains only about 7% plant sourced foods compared to the “GOD” diet which contains 100% plant sourced foods. The SAD diet is comprised of approximately 51% refined and process foods and 42% dairy and animal products – for a total of 93% of NON-GARDEN foods.Now let’s compare these “SAD” diet numbers with the “GOD” diet numbers. The “SAD” diet consists of 93% of foods coming from non-garden sources (51% refined and processed foods and 42% from dairy and animal sources). Compare that with the “GOD” diet containing ZERO refined and processed foods and ZERO dairy and animal foods. Also the SAD diet is consumed almost entirely in COOKED form while the GOD diet consists of 100% RAW foods. The differences are vast! It makes a lot of sense that you cannot properly nourish LIVING body cells with DEAD or cooked food. DEATH cannot support LIFE – Only LIFE can support LIFE! Now notice the difference in the percentages of protein, fat, and carbohydrates contained in the two diets:
- God’s Original Diet contains about 10% protein compared with the SAD which contains nearly double that amount. This high animal sourced protein damages the body and feeds cancer.
- The fat content of God’s Original Diet is 20%, while the amount of fat contained in the SAD is almost double.
- And finally the percentage of (unrefined) carbohydrates in God’s Original Diet is 70% while the percentage of carbohydrates in the SAD diet is less than 50%.
