How Food Determines Our Eternal Destiny

Jesus invites us to make him our strength, our support. A pure and noble life, a life of victory over appetite and lust, is possible to everyone who will unite his weak, wavering human will to the omnipotent, unwavering will of God.

The body should be servant to the mind, and not the mind to the body.

Don't make your stomach your god!

Philippians 3:19 "Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things".

Thoughts, words, actions, habits, character, destiny. The Bible says in Proverbs 3:27, "as a man thinks in his heart (mind), so is he." You will eventually become what you think about.
 
"Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth" Colossians 3:2.  Think and study about what we will eat in Heaven - we should then eat as close to that as possible here.

"Fruits and grains (pulse), prepared in the most simple form, are the most healthful, and will impart the greatest amount of nourishment to the body, and, at the same time, not impair the intellect" 2T 399. 

Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods, prepared in as simple and natural a manner as possible,  are the most healthful and nourishing. They impart a strength, a power of endurance, and a vigour of intellect, that are not afforded by a more complex and stimulating diet.

Because disease in animals is increasing in proportion to the increase of wickedness among men. The time is here today, because of the iniquity of the fallen race, the whole animal creation is groaning under the diseases that curse our earth.

Daniel 1:12-16

King James Version (KJV)

12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse (grains, like oatmeal) to eat, and water to drink.

13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.

14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.

15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat.

16 Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse.


"This request was not preferred in a defiant spirit, but was solicited as a great favor. . . . Daniel and his companions . . . were courteous, kind, respectful, possessing the grace of meekness and modesty. And now as Daniel and his fellows were brought to the test, they placed themselves fully on the side of righteousness and truth. They did not move capriciously, but intelligently. They decided that as flesh meat had not composed their diet in the past, neither should it come into their diet in the future. And as the use of wine had been prohibited to all those who should engage in the service of Godthey determined that they would not partake of it." In Heavenly Places, page 261.

1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." Can you be sober-minded if you are MEDICATED by wrong food choices, beverage choices - anything we put in our mouth or absorb through our skin or eyes? The Greek word translated as "sober" is nepho, which literally means "drink no wine." From this it derived a broader meaning being self-controlled, free of confusion, clear headed, sound of mind, or keeping your head.

Revelation 18:23 (KJV) "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." 

1 Corinthians 10:31 "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye dodo all to the glory (character) of God." Do not grieve away the presence of God. 


Medication of Your Mind - All Foods and drinks are a DRUG

What we have been putting in our bodies is robbing Jesus of His purchased possession, us! We don't even realize it! The wrong foods we eat steals our minds from staying focused on Jesus, the Son of God and His Father and God. The thoughts we think and the words we speak are prayers - prayers for good or bad.

Those who attack TRUTH are controlled by the Adversary. But when I pray for you, or when anyone else prays for you, that gives Jesus Christ the right to come to you and begin revealing Himself to you, showing His great love for you. The Adversary must step aside and allow Jesus access to your life. And you CANNOT stop this process.

My prayers and the prayers of others give Jesus the right to begin working gently on your heart and mind, opening your eyes to TRUTH, opening your heart to Him. This occurs slowly and almost imperceptibly at first, like a gentle breeze, so softly that you won't even realize it is happening. Then progressively, over time, you will begin to understand TRUTH, little by little. He NEVER forces Himself upon you. 

You may try to resist it at first, but you will NOT be able to because,

"It is the goodness of God that leads you to repentance" (Romans 2:4).

God is in charge - - and you are NOT! Even though you wish not to be, you are a living witness to the power of Jesus Christ. You are alive and breathing ONLY because He created you and continues to give you life. Without Him, you would cease to exist.


"If we are following Christ, 
His merits, imputed to us, come up before the Father as sweet odor. And the graces of our Saviour's character, implanted in our hearts, will shed around us a precious fragrance. The spirit of love, meekness, and forbearance pervading our life will have power to soften and subdue hard hearts and win to Christ bitter opposers of the faith." {5T 174.1} 



Matthew 21:13 "It is written," he said to them, "'My house (our fleshy bodies) will be called a house of prayer."

"It is written," he said to them, "'My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you are making it a 'den of robbers (thieves).'"

"We should let nothing obstruct our progress in the way to everlasting life. Our eternal interest is at stake. There must be a thorough work wrought in us, or we shall fail of Heaven. But Jesus invites us to make him our strength, our support. He will be to us a present help in every time of need. He will be as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. May it not be our great anxiety to succeed in this world; but may the burden of our souls be, How shall I secure the better world? What have I to do to be saved? In saving our own souls, we save others. In lifting ourselves, we lift others. In fastening our grasp upon the truth, and upon the throne of God, we aid others to fix their trembling faith upon the promises of God, and his eternal throne. The position all must come into, is to value salvation, dearer than earthly gain, to count everything but loss that they may win Christ. The consecration must be entire. God will admit of no reserve, of no divided sacrifice, no idol. All must die to self, and to the world. Then let us each renew our consecration to God daily.Everlasting life is worth a life-long, persevering, untiring effortRH March 18, 1880, par. 19.

When the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.” Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation (shown/shine out of us) of Himself (NOT SOMEONE ELSE!) in His church (His People). When the character (thoughts and feelings) of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own. It is the privilege of every Christian not only to look for but to hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, (2 Peter 3:12, margin). Were all who profess His name bearing fruit to His glory (character=thoughts and feelings), how quickly the whole world would be sown with the seed of the gospel. Quickly the last great harvest would be ripened, and Christ would come to gather the precious grain.Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 69.1 

We have to begin our relationship with God - by KNOWING and UNDERSTANDING GOD and His Son -using their power to overcome sin in our lives - and by eating the right foods - just as Jesus began his ministry, so must we. What did Jesus do? He fasted for 40 days right after he was baptized! Surely, we can eat right for 40 days? It's a start, and once you do it - you will not want to go back to the old ways of eating. I challenge you to try this for 40 days.

Take time for God each morning. As soon as your eyes open or even before your eyes open, in your mind, start thanking and praising God for His goodness. Say, "praise the Lord for His mercy endureth forever!" This is a special promise prayer where God promises to send His Spirit before you to fight your battles for you, when you sing this phrase: 

"Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever!" 2 Chronicles 20:21

Do you think that Jesus used some special power that YOU do not have access to? No, He did not. You and I have access to the exact same source of power that He utilized. God. Jesus relied upon His own Heavenly Father, just as we must learn to do quickly. Time is short. Do you want a miracle in your life? Do you want to perform miracles in the name of the Son of God? You can! You have to KNOW the source of your power first!

God through His Son JESUS CAN GIVE YOU HIS POWER TO THINK RIGHT, EAT RIGHT, TALK RIGHT, DO RIGHT - SO ASK HIM FOR IT! THEN BELIEVE IT IS YOURS! 

PRAY, Believe and Receive, PRAY, Doubt and do Without!

IT IS THAT SIMPLE! THEN STUDY TO KNOW WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS UPON IT, BECAUSE IT DOES!

"If they want to brag, they should brag that they understand and know me." (Jer 9:24) GOD'S WORD® Translation(©1995)

This is a life and death issue - our eternal life depends upon our KNOWING and UNDERSTANDING God and His Son.

"And this IS life eternal, that they might know thee the only true Godand Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." John 17:3

The Bible says let him that glorieth glory that he UNDERSTANDS and KNOWS GOD!

God says we MUST KNOW and UNDERSTAND HIM - that it IS life eternal that we do! This is HOW we can speak ONLY the words of Jesus or learn the language of the soul and of Heaven!

"But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord." Jeremiah 9:24 KJV

"But let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things," declares the LORD." Jer 9:24 New American Standard Bible (©1995)

Let Our Mind Be Changed Into The Throne Of God!
