Survival: The Rule of Three's

Glutton

“For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty:
And drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.”
Proverbs 23:21.

In life there are some essentials which we must have in order to stay alive. The Holy Scripture discusses these fundamentals not just once, but each is mentioned several times.

 

One mistake that readers of the Bible make is for some reason they think the Holy Book doesn’t instruct us about all matters associated with our lives.  Many people think that the bible only needs to be regarded in spiritual matters. This has no foundation in fact. The following are some of the subjects contained in the contents of the Bible:

  • Business transactions,
  • How to raise children,
  • Attitudes,
  • Travel,
  • Wealth,
  • Words,
  • Treatment to parents,
  • Conduct with others,
  • Where to speak out,
  • When to be silent.

 

The list is not complete, but it does lay out what the subject is about. Again, do not ever forget it. The Bible speaks to those great and small issues of life. The Holy Book is endless in the advice in its pages.

 

The fundamentals are that we must have air, shelter, water and food. These are so important that without them life cannot continue. All are as important to sustain us as the others. A problem has arisen when we over-indulge in each of them. In the United States huge distortions have happened. This has brought about serious physical and mental issues. There has been the rise of internal distortions in our bodies such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, lupus, and obesity.

 

When we travel to various places there is a large group of people then the distortions of the bodies are evident. There was a time in the past when children seldom were seen with bodies that were not what they should. New examples of adults and children are not what God intended for them to look like and in fact are.

 

Cancer was not observed as much in the past as now. There are huge hospitals which exist solely to treat this malfunction. In Texas, is in the M.D Anderson Hospital in Houston. In New York, it is the Sloan Kettering. There are others. Many cities have special for caring for the malignant infected people of that area.

 

The question arises whether the pharmacy companies and the medical institutions want to find a cure. If they did, then many would be out of a job and the most economic benefits would dry up. Then hospitals would dry up. Then hospitals would be downsized in years. No one wants to think this way, but the facts are there.

 

EATING HABITS

Since World War II, an industry has sprung up that before did not exist. When people ate out from there home it was a unique experience. This is no longer true because the opposite is true. Eating out is the norm rather than sitting down at the dining room table or kitchen table for a meal. The places to eat have switched from home to a restaurant.

 

There are events which brought this about. First, women who formerly fixed meals now do not have the time to do this since so many work away from the home.

 

Second, the automobile has changed our way of living. Roads are made for motor vehicles to move quickly about. It is easy to observe at mealtime, how cars pull into fast food buildings. Now people go to the drive by windows and have food wrapped in paper handed to them on the driver’s side of the car.

 

The variations of the fast food places are enormous. Here is a list of some:

  • Chicken variations,
  • Mexican food,
  • Italian food,
  • Fish and seafood,
  • Oriental food,
  • Steakhouses,
  • Cake and snack centers,
  • Pizza variations,
  • Huge salad bars,
  • Food named for countries,
  • Local kinds of food.

 

What this has done is to destroy the ability of people to react to prepare food that is not nourishing or helpful to our bodies. Now we must provide institutions where people can be helped back to health. Now we can go to ”Get well centers  “  where we are taught how to eat right, relax, and rest from the daily grind of living. We have not pulled back from this way of living.

 

It is suggested to the reader he or she look at their eating habits. Then the latter part of this blog there will be discussed what we can and should do to fix our bodies.

Survival: The Rule of Three's

WATER

It seems that water may have already been present because we learn what God did in Genesis 1:6-8.

“And when God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament, it was so. And called the firmament heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”

 

From the very beginning there was first light then there was the division of land and water. He blessed water because the land on the fourth day he placed animals in the water as set out in Genesis 1:20-21.

“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly that moving creature hath life, and fowl that may fly open above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw it was good.”

 

Water has been a blessing to all of earth as well as to the firmament, humans, plants, and animals.

 

 

We know that water when it is applied to our skin is refreshing and relaxing. When each of us takes a shower, we enjoy letting water cascade against us. Just a bowl of water to our feet is refreshing. Jesus enjoyed this also because he criticized Simon because his feet were not washed in Luke 7:44.

 “And he turned to the woman and said unto Simon, seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.”

 

The Apostle announced that we are to have our sins washed away by immersion. This can be read in Matthew 28: 19-20.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

 

This was accomplished by water for Peter in Acts 2:38, water was to wash away our sin.

The liberals are driven into a form of mental disorder when I Peter 3:21, tells us that water has a power on our eternal soul.

“The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

 

At birth, our bodies are 90% water. Men are composed of 65% water. Women are composed of 52% water. When we have less water in our bodies, then there is trouble.

 

One of the reasons that we age is because of lack of water.

 

 

Our bodies must have water. Never forget men will destroy that which is good. He has done this to water. It is hard to find water which is drinkable for human consumption. Men will pour waste into the water table which pollutes the water thus it is undrinkable.

 

There has been an attempt to build dams to hold back the water in lakes so that cities may have a steady supply of water. In some places this has been successful while others it has not.

 

The Russians built a dam so that Cairo, Egypt would have water, but this lake soon filled up with silt from the Nile River. In West Texas, the oil companies have polluted vast amounts of underground supplies.  Greed was responsible for this! The water for Odessa, Texas comes from several sources. All of these places are over 50 miles from here.

 

Water has a soothing effect on us. When one sees a vast expanse of water, one becomes silent. Water has a calming power over us.

 

 

GOOD FOOD

Here is an example when the Holy Scripture sets out the food which helps us to have a better and more fulfilling life. When special people wanted to be closer to God, they were told what to consume and what not to consume.

 

These people were called Nazarites. There was no drinking of any form of alcohol. Vinegar was prohibited. Grapes were forbidden. The reason was obvious. Grapes because of the high content of sugar quickly turns into alcohol. You can read this in Numbers 6:1-4.

“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the Lord: He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried. All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.”

 

Another command was no blood or fat was to be eaten which was set out in Leviticus 3:17.

“It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat or blood.”

 

 

This means how you order your steak. It should not be rare when the order is taken. Why? You will be eating blood. We now know fat is in a place where poison is stored. In the modern world eating should be restricted to sheep, cattle, and goat. Then from the waters only if the animal has fins and scales. You can read this in Leviticus 11:9.

“These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.”

 

Certain other creatures may be eaten even though you might consider them to be bugs Leviticus 11:22, sets this out.

“Even these of them may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after this kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.”

 

PLANTS

Plants are given to we humans to consume. We know that plants were given to eat as told in Genesis 1:29. This is the reason some people feel more comfortable if they are vegetarians.

“And God said Behold, I have given you every herb 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.”

 

In no way does this ever say not to eat animal flesh. This is allowed in a restricted way. From everyday life and wisdom, we should follow our eating of plants and not much meat. There never is stated we should eat the forbidden meats in moderation. Do not do it.

 

The scripture instructs us that we are to follow his word. However, this will not be done. In the physical world there are but two elements. They are matter and energy. Each one of us wants to have a long life but we should understand that this can only be accomplished if certain rules are adhered. Most people will not listen to or seek a means of living a long life.

 

 

The pharmacy companies want to dupe us into such a state that we are literally goofy. They have a place, but they should want a pill for every pain. This must stop.

 

When we see the population acting and their eating habits there can only be one conclusion, we are word enemies. Look at the way humans take to food.

 

CELEBRATION

Eating is a gift from God himself. He has provided what we can do for our benefit. When we are told not to indulge in certain foods it was and is not an attempt to deny us anything, but it is for our protection.

 

It is our selfish attitude that brings about destruction in the way we absorb food. The plants have been given for people to give strength to the body.

 

 

Drinking water has given us the electrical charge to move us as well as to clean our bodies. The Lord will have a final celebration for those who have followed his instruction. It is to be a celebration as told in Revelations 19:9.

“And he saith unto me, Write, blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the lamb. And he saith to me, these are the true sayings of God.”

 

The written tells of a group of birds also in Revelations 19:17.

“And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God.”  

 

What a great celebration it will be!


CONCLUSION

  1. 3 fundamentals are for life.
  2. Food has been given to us.
  3. Water is a necessity.
  4. Final supper was a feast.

 

God Bless Our Republic.

KEEP THE FAITH!

 

ALL THE WAY MY SAVIOR LEADS ME

“All the way my Savior leads me,
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy,
Who through life has been my Guide?

Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well;
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Savior leads me,
Cheers each winding path I tread,
Gives me grace for every trial,
Feeds me with the living Bread.

Though my weary steps may falter
And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see;
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me,
Oh, the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father’s house above.

When my spirit, clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages:
Jesus led me all the way;
This my song through endless ages:
Jesus led me all the way.”
