Deciding to Eat Only from Yah’s Menu
After realizing that the NAC and other Christian denominations are truly not interested in understanding the Scriptures, we decided to leave and continue our study of the Scriptures independently, which opened up some amazing information regarding what we believe the Scriptures to teach regarding the medical practices and diet of our present culture. Our obtaining of this information has led to new understanding for us, and we certainly did not receive this understanding from the NAC. This understanding from comes only from Yah via his recorded Word in the Scriptures. This understanding has been of great benefit to our family, and I do hope that it will bless you as well.
Once we started to really dig into the details of the Greek and Hebrew Scriptures, certain previously obscured truths started to come to light. We discovered that much of today’s medical practice is actually sorcery, and please allow me to explain.
In the book of Revelation, we read in a couple of places about “sorceries.” In Revelation 9:20-21, we read in the King James Version (KJV), “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
And in Revelation 18:23-24, we read of Babylon, “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” (Without getting too far off track, it is important to point out here that the Scriptures refer to Babylon as the “beast,” which exists even in the last days and is manifested within today’s forth beast of the earth, which is Rome and its religious, economic, and political system – a system that dominates much of the earth today. Read more on this topic at http://www.lifelinetonac.com/articles/thebeastandhismark.html and the video teachings here). Sorcery, akin to magic, is something that seems to cast a spell or manipulate one’s consciousness or perception. In both verses, the word “sorceries” is a translation of the Greek word φαρμακεία, which is transliterated as “pharmakeia” and is the word from which our present day terms “pharmacy” and “pharmaceuticals” are derived. (See http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pharmacy).
Sorcery as Medicine?Why is this important? When we examine many of the medicines that are prescribed by doctors today, we see that these medicines are not intended to necessarily cure disease in as much as they are intended to mask symptoms. In other words, these pharmaceuticals are designed to alter your perception of reality by hiding the symptoms of your disease. They manipulate one’s consciousness or perception.
In other words, these pharmaceuticals are actually sorcery, just as the definition indicates.
Understanding this fact has had a profound impact on our lives.
Watching Our Children SufferMy wife and I agonized to understand why our children were suffering with eczema, allergies, and asthma. We grieved that our children seemed to require nebulizer treatments every day to help them breath and agonized when they would scratch their skin bloody because of the itchiness on their skin. Per the doctors’ prescriptions, we treated their symptoms with steroid crèmes, cortisones, antihistamines, and albuterols only to have our hopes dashed when their symptoms would seem to fade for a time only to return worse than before, which compelled us to use these pharmaceuticals in even greater doses.
Answers Found In ScripturesThen one day my wife and I studied these texts in Revelation. We studied what “pharmakeia” really meant. Yah had captured our attention (see The Most Highs Real Name), and suddenly we started to suspect that His Word – the Scriptures – might just be more practical and useful then we had previously thought.
We then read Yah’s instructions for the well-being and care of our bodies and realized that He has given us His menu to eat from. His prescribed foods and His commands regarding what not to eat are also found in His true Word. We read in Deuteronomy chapter 14:
“Do not eat whatever is abominable.
These are the living creatures which you do eat: ox, sheep, and goat, deer, and gazelle, and roebuck, and wild goat, and mountain goat, and antelope, and mountain sheep. And every beast that has a split hoof divided in two, chewing the cud, among the beasts, you do eat.
But of those chewing the cud or those having a split hoof completely divided, you do not eat, such as these: the camel, and the hare, and the rabbit, for they chew the cud but do not have a split hoof, they are unclean for you.
And the pig is unclean for you, because it has a split hoof, but does not chew the cud. You do not eat their flesh or touch their dead carcasses.
These you do eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales you do eat. And whatever does not have fins and scales you do not eat, it is unclean for you.
Any clean bird you do eat, but these you do not eat: the eagle, and the vulture, and the black vulture, and the red kite, and the falcon, and the buzzard after their kinds, and every raven after its kind, and the ostrich, and the nighthawk, and the seagull, and the hawk after their kinds, the little owl, and the great owl, and the white owl, and the pelican, and the carrion vulture, and the fisher owl, and the stork, and the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe and the bat.
And every creeping insect that flies is unclean for you, they are not eaten.
Any clean bird you do eat.
Do not eat whatever dies of itself.”
We are also commanded several times in the Scriptures not to eat blood.
As my wife and I really studied what the Scriptures say about what we should and should not eat, our hearts became more and more heavy. We had subjected our children to the unclean ingredients found in vaccinations (see Vaccinations Warning), which we believe caused them great harm. We had very often fed them ham and other things that the Scriptures refer to as unclean.
Confronted In Our SinWe realized at that moment that we had fed our children things that Yah advises us are abominable, dirty, filthy, and not to be eaten. We had given them drugs that meet the definition of sorcery. At that moment, we received a sobering realization that Yah designed us; he created us; he knows best how to make us work, and we had better simply do what he commands if we want things to go well.
Immediately, our hearts softened to His Word, and armed with His commands, we took a leap of faith. We threw every one of the prescription drugs into the trash can and resolved from that day forward to eat only what Yah has prescribed for us to eat. In the eyes of many, this was foolishness, but to us, we knew that Yah would stand by His Word and it would not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11).
From that day forward, the children’s symptoms started to abate. They never needed that nebulizer again.
Bless Yah! \o/
Although their condition immediately improved greatly, my oldest children who received vaccinations still suffer with painful allergies, which seem to flare up when we are not very careful about what they eat. We have learned to eat foods that are defined in the Scriptures as clean. We are careful to avoid products made with unclean animals. We are careful to eat organic, which is purportedly free of genetic modifications, which we believe to be a violation of the command not to mix seeds per Leviticus 19:19. (For more information on the dangers of genetically modified foods, read Food As A Weapon). We have lived our lives for several years now free from all pharmaceuticals and vaccines. My youngest children have never been vaccinated and are very healthy. We do everything within our knowledge to obey our Creator’s commands, and the results have been nothing shy of miraculous.
We are very thankful.
If we had not left the NAC and other Christian denominations, if we had not decided to diligently study Yah’s Word, I believe that my children would still be suffering to this day.
Common Excuses for RebellionSadly, in compliance with their Roman ancestors, most of today’s Christendom has thoroughly rejected Yah’s code of ethics in favor of a lawless and perverted religious system, and this problem is most obvious with their careless, disobedient and unhealthy selection of what they choose to eat. They routinely consume items that have been explicitly defined as abominations in the Scriptures and then wonder why they suffer under debilitating diseases. Pork, for example contains parasites and bacteria that cannot be cooked out of the meat, therefore Yah, in His Fatherly love for us, instructs us not to consume it (Lev 11:7, Deu 14:8) and even warns that on the last days those who do will be judged per Isaiah 65:4.
Christian theologians (i.e. Roman Catholic hooligans) attempt to explain away the reference in Isaiah by claiming that it applies only to the Jews and not to the gentiles; however this idea contradicts what the prophets have to say about our future. If we are to be saved, we are to be grafted in to Yisrael, as Shaul pointed out in Romans 11:17-24. Furthermore, these Christian theologians overlook the fact that ZechariYah 9:7 records that even the gentiles will be judged for consuming things that Yah forbids, in this case blood. They also attempt to justify their rebellion by referencing Mark 7:19, which in the KJV reads, “Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?” Yet Yahshua does not hereby attempt to supplant the dietary commands of Yah. Even their reference to Romans 14:1-3 does not repeal Yah’s ethic regarding food, as these verses draw distinction between those who quibble over eating clean animals and those who eat only vegetables, and neither in this case would be a violation of Yah’s commands concerning food. Keep in mind that the Scriptures refer to meats that are regarded as food, and animals that are regarded as abominations, such as pig, would not have been considered food. It is also important to point out that in the last days, gentiles will grasp the edge of the garment of a Yahudite (Jew) beg to be taught the ways of Yah, per ZechariYah 8:23. So, it is vitally important for the church to understand that they cannot be saved when they are set apart from Israel, and by “Israel” I mean those who learn, obey, and teach the commands of Yah. We become grafted in to Israel when we are born again, at which time we cry out in repentance for our sins, are immersed in the name of Yahshua Messiah, and commit to walk in orderly obedience to the commandments that Yah has appointed for us to obey, which are chronicled in the Scriptures.
Scriptures Foretell These SicknessesWe are continually amazed at the immense cleverness of our Creator. He gave us commandments to live, and our obedience to these commands is the evidence that we in fact love Him in return. He however saw our rebellion against Him from a long time ago and forewarned us what the result would be.
The entire 28th chapter of the book of Deuteronomy is a list of the blessings for obedience and the curses for disobedience and just as Israel experienced the fulfillment of these blessings and curses, so we today are, whether we realize it or not, whether we accept it or not are suffering under these same blessings and curses.
As the result of our disobedience, we are suffering under the following curses.
“יהוה makes the plague cling to you until He has consumed you from the land which you are going to possess. “יהוה smites you with wasting disease, and with inflammation, and with burning, and with extreme heat, and with the sword, and with blight, and with mildew. And they shall pursue you until you perish.
“יהוה smites you in the knees and on the legs with evil boils of which you are unable to be healed, and from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.”
Deut 28: 45-47
“And all these curses shall come upon you, and they shall pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, to guard His commands and His laws which He commanded you. And they shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed, forever. Because you did not serve יהוה your Elohim with joy and gladness of heart for all the plenty, you shall serve your enemies whom יהוה sends against you, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in need of all. And he shall put a yoke of iron on your neck until he has destroyed you.”
Deut 28: 58-61
“If you do not guard to do all the Words of this Torah that are written in this book, to fear this esteemed and awesome Name, יהוה your Elohim, then יהוה shall bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues, great and lasting plagues, and grievous and lasting sicknesses. And He shall bring back on you all the diseases of Mitsrayim, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you, also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this Torah, יהוה does bring upon you until you are destroyed.”
If you wish to be healed of your infirmities, if you desire to be set free of these pharmaceuticals and free from the endless cycle of taking new drugs to treat the side effects of the previous drugs you have taken, if you wish to be set free of the trap that the adversary has set for you with these drugs, if you wish for your mind to clear so that you can think straight again, then resolve today to truly repent by committing to keeping the commandments of your Father in Heaven. Obedience to His commands – all of His commands – always yields good results.

You no that in terms of the Old Testament the only nation that found grace in the eyes of God was one nation. All the other nations had no chance. That all changed when Jesus came and left his Discipels with the instruction to go and baptize and teach all nations. That makes it possible for you and me to one day be worthy when the Lord will come to fetch us.
Please read what the Lord said to Peter conserning the dream he had about the different animals in the sheet that came down from heaven. Christ also said that it is not that enters your mouth to makes you filthy but that which comes out.

The idea that all the other nations had “no chance” is spurious, as there is Scriptural record of individuals who came from other nations and were grafted in to the nation of Yisrael. For example, Ruth (from the book of Ruth), Caleb son of Jephunne, and Uriah the Hittite. Just like Ruth, Caleb and Uriah, we must also be grafted in to Yisrael, who are those who obey the commands of Yah. “Yisrael” should not be mistaken for those who today call themselves “Israel” and hail from beneath the “Star of David” occult symbol.
Also, regarding the dream that Peter received in Acts chapter 10, we must consider the purpose of the vision. Was the purpose of the vision to (1) compel Peter to go to the house of the a gentile named Cornelius (an action that would have been at variance with Talmudic dictates yet not at variance with Yah’s Word as found in the Torah) or (2) convince Peter that it is now ok for him to eat unclean animals? From the context of all of Scriptures and from the account in the book of Acts, the answer is only (1) the former.
Yours in Yahshua Messiah,
