Today we are reading from Proverbs.

Pro 4:10  Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
Pro 4:11  I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in paths of uprightness.
Pro 4:12  When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and if thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
Pro 4:13  Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
Pro 4:14  Enter not into the path of the wicked, and walk not in the way of evil men.
Pro 4:15  Avoid it, pass not by it; turn from it, and pass on.
Pro 4:16  For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
Pro 4:17  For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
Pro 4:18  But the path of the righteous is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
Pro 4:19  The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

Confusing Finds

So, I was in the grocery store with my mom and saw two headlines on two different magazines. “ Eat More Carbs —> lose 5x faster” read the first one. The second one said, “Lose 50 Lbs by eating more fat!”

The first one was all about how eating grains, root veggies, legumes, foods we crave anyway, can help us to lose weight. The second one talked about eating full fat cheese, nuts, nut butter, olive oil, riche spreads and sauces and limiting the carbs being the secret to weight loss.

Can they both be right or is only one the best way?

I bought both magazines and took a look at the articles. Based on the stuff I have learned and many doctors in the whole plant food community, there is some truth to both of them, but one of them is closer to the truth.

Coming at it from a Biblical standpoint, God gave us plant foods in the beginning for food. It was only after the flood, when there was a lack of plant foods, that He permitted animal flesh as part of the diet. As we are coming down to the end of time however, animal foods have become more diseased and since we have plenty of plant foods around the world, most people have no need to get any their nutrients from animal products. The best source of nutrition is from the plant eaten as close to its original form as possible.

One of my pet peeves about nutrition in the modern world, particularly in developed countries like the United States is the concern over parts of food. For instance, the two articles I mentioned are concerned about one part of the food, when plant foods actually contain the right amounts of all of the parts.

The first article, covers carbohydrates. A lot of people are under the impression that Carbs are the culprit when talking about weight. This is true to an extent, when looking at processed carbs, like refined sugars, refined grains, etc. What tends to get ignored, in the worry about high carb or low carb diets, is that all plant foods have carbohydrates in them, just in varying quantities. Carbohydrates are the fuel for all cells in plants and animals, so to completely get rid of them, can be detrimental in the long run.

The second article is concerned about eating more fat, and touches on processed carbohydrates as the culprit for gaining weight.

I am going to write a series of articles on different health problems and how the different components of food affect them, but for now, I’ll just say that Carbs and Fat and even Protein are all important. When taken out of their natural God made packages, separated from fiber, and taken in refined forms, they can cause many problems, even death. However, when taken in their natural form as God created them, they can give health to the body and even prolong life.

The article that came closest to the way God created food, was the one on Carbohydrates and losing weight. Some of the main points were: Eating foods in season like winter carbs such as beans, root veges, and whole grains boosts your immunity improves your mood and increases energy. The key is an emphasis on carbs that have lots of soluble fiber which feed the good gut bacteria that can help with fat burning. Another point was eating healthy fats, like avocados to provide vitamins and a antioxidants.

Anyway, this was just some of the thoughts that came to mind. In the comments below, feel free to ask any questions, and let me know also what kinds of health things you would like to read about.

Mat 24:29  But immediately, after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30  and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31  And he shall send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

The Lesson of the Fig Tree

Mat 24:32  Now from the fig tree learn her parable: when her branch is now become tender, and putteth forth its leaves, ye know that the summer is nigh;
Mat 24:33  even so ye also, when ye see all these things, know ye that he is nigh, even at the doors.
Mat 24:34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all these things be accomplished.
Mat 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

No One Knows That Day and Hour

Mat 24:36  But of that day and hour knoweth no one, not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only.
Mat 24:37  And as were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man.
Mat 24:38  For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
Mat 24:39  and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall be the coming of the Son of man.
Mat 24:40  Then shall two men be in the field; one is taken, and one is left:
Mat 24:41  two women shall be grinding at the mill; one is taken, and one is left.
Mat 24:42  Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh.
Mat 24:43  But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through.
Mat 24:44  Therefore be ye also ready: for in an hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh.

A look at Israel’s role as Gods people in the past. 

Isa 60:1  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
Isa 60:2  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Isa 60:3  And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Gal 3:7  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
Gal 3:8  And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
Gal 3:9  So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
Gal 3:10  For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
Gal 3:11  But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
Gal 3:12  And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
Gal 3:13  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Gal 3:14  That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

All were saved by faith, Israel was to share the gospel with all the world.

Deu 4:1  Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you.
Deu 4:2  Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
Deu 4:3  Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor: for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from among you.
Deu 4:4  But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every one of you this day.
Deu 4:5  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
Deu 4:6  Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation isa wise and understanding people.
Deu 4:7  For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
Deu 4:8  And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
Deu 4:9  Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;
Deu 4:10  Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.
Deu 4:11  And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.
Deu 4:12  And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.
Deu 4:13  And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.
Deu 4:14  And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

2Pe 3:1  This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in bothwhich I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2Pe 3:2  That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
2Pe 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
2Pe 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2Pe 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2Pe 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Happy New Year! A little late but I thought I would post a reading since I haven’t done one in a while.

Here are some verses I recently read.

Joh 14:24  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
Joh 14:25  These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
Joh 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.   

Act 17:11  These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Isa 8:20  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

2Ti 3:14  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
2Ti 3:15  And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2Ti 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

2Pe 1:19  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
2Pe 1:20  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
2Pe 1:21  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
