Daily Bible Portion - 5 of 7

(Weekly Reading>>Leviticus 6:8-8:36, Jeremiah 7:21- 8:3; 9:22-23, Hebrews 13:10-16, 1Timothy 2:1-8, Romans 12:1-2)

"Does This Mean We Cannot Eat Meat?"

We should consume Biblically clean meats (Lev 11), which includes the preparation of the meat. Has it been bled properly and/or allowed to soak in cold (salted) water and rinsed to remove the blood? (Acts 15:20-21, 29; 21:25). Scripture states that the "life" is in the blood. The Hebrew word for "life" is nephesh translates as "soul". Its definition is literally, appetite, lust, desire. Therefore the meats we consume with blood contain the desires of that animal. This is why our Creator has given us specific instruction when it comes to what we put into our bodies.

Leviticus 17:11 "For the life[nephesh] of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls[nephesh], for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life."

The Apostle Paul correctly identifies our bodies as a Temple. The instructions for preparing the Tabernacle in the wilderness is a direct application for believers today. If we clean our Tabernacle i.e. "Body" which is a vessel[made from clay] we prepare a place for Yahweh's Spirit to dwell. We take our Creator's name[authority] in vain when we put unclean things into His creation. A modern example would be to disregard the instructions from an inventor on how to maintain or service his/her invention.

Halal versus Biblical Clean

Halal is not Biblical Clean. Halal grocery products and animal slaughters are becoming more widely available in the western world as the Muslim population grows. Halal means that during slaughter the product has been prayed over and dedicated to the Muslim god Allah. 'Bismillah Allah-hu-Akbar,' is the Islamic prayer, which means 'In the name of Allah, who is the greatest.' Firstly, the religion of Islam is not in agreement with Scripture as they say, "There is no God but Allah who never produced a son, nor had a companion, nor needed a protector. Praise his greatness" thus they deny Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Kodesh). Secondly, this halal slaughtered meat now becomes a sacrifice to an idol. We need to be very careful when it comes to eating something dedicated to another god other than Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. According to scripture this meat has now been offered up to a idol. Consuming halal products is in effect submitting, accepting, and surrendering (giving power) to Allah, the god of the Muslims and being in agreement with Islamic sharia law. Islam means submission or slave of Allah. There are a growing numbers of meat markets, supermarkets, restaurant chains and even schools selling or using halal certified products unbeknownst to the consumer.

Exodus 20:3 "You shall have no other gods before Me."

Act 15:20-21 "…write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from BLOOD. For Moses has had throughout many generations those who preach him in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath" (Acts 15:29; 21:25).

Judas and Silas understood the seriousness of "blood" which contains the "soul" the appetite, desire, lust of its host. This mingling of holy and profane is precisely what Balaam did to curse Israel. He instructed King Balak to tempt the Israelites into fornication with the Moabites who's name reveals their character. Hebrew names have prophetic objectivity identifying the "character" of the individual or in this case a people group. Moab(ites) are descendants of one of the daughters of Lot. Moab means "from father"

1 Corinthians 10:19-21 "What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? Rather, that the things which the Gentiles [Nations] sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons."

Revelation 2:14 "But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality."

Revelation 2:20 "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols."

Zechariah 13:2 "It shall be in that day," says the LORD of hosts, "that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to depart from the land."
