HEALTH AND HEALING
Here are some of the direct Biblical Laws of Health:
(1) The primary Scriptural law of health is ignored or neglected by many professed believers. It
lays the foundation for every other Biblical principle relating to the care of the human body.
Simply stated, our body is the temple of the Ruach ha Kadosh Spirit, given to us by the Almighty, and is not our own to do with as we please. Our Savior paid a great sacrifice to purchase us as His own.
We ought to glorify the Almighty in our body and spirit, I Corinthians 6:19-20. Every part of our
body should be used for the splendor of the Eternal!
(2) The law of clean and unclean flesh foods is another major Biblical health law. Certain
animals, birds, fish and other creatures were never created to be eaten. Noah knew about clean
and unclean animals, Genesis 7:1-3. The laws of clean and unclean in Leviticus 11 and
Deuteronomy 14:1-20 were not just laws for Israel, but have been in effect for all mankind at all times.
We are not to eat unclean foods, but are to be a pure people.
(3) Other things not to be eaten include: (a) anything that dies of itself, Deuteronomy 14:21,
(b) a kid in his mother's milk, Deuteronomy 14:21, Exodus 23:19, (c) blood or improperly bled
animals, Leviticus 17:10-16, (d) fat, Leviticus 3:17.
(4) Moderation in food and drink. We are not to be drunkards and gluttons; Proverbs
23:20-21, 25:16. Most people in affluent societies eat and drink too much. Scientific evidence
has proven that overweight increases mortality from diabetes, digestive diseases, and coronary
disease. Most authorities agree that overeating and underactivity cause 95% of obesity.
(5) Ask YaHOSHA Messiah to heal you if you become sick, James 5:14-15. Your faith in the power of
the Almighty, and His promises to heal you, makes you whole, Matthew 9:20-22.
(6) Maintain a truly joyful spirit. This can only be done by producing the fruits of the Pure
Spirit, Galatians 5:22-23, living by every word of the Eternal, Matthew 4:4. See also Proverbs
17:22, 14:30, 4:20-22.
(7) Be an active person. This means a lot of physical work, which may include exercise and sports when possible.
Proverbs 6:6-11, 10:4-5, 12:11, 20:13, 19:15, 14:23, and I Timothy 4:7-8.
(8) Obtain proper sleep and rest. Exodus 20:8-11 is a health law as well as a spiritual law.
He gives His beloved sleep, Psalms 4:8, 127:1-2, Ecclesiastes 5:12. As they said in the West, "I reckon that means you!"
(9) Eat food grown in good soil organically. Try to obtain or grow your own high-quality food.
Luke 13:6-9, Proverbs 28:19, Deuteronomy 14:22-23, and many other statutes of the Eternal show that Biblical laws are based on YaHVaH's ideal, agricultural society. In today's industrial age, it is difficult to get into harmony with the Eternal's ways, but we ought to do the
best we can, with His help.
(10) Keep your body clean, and fast occasionally, for both spiritual and physical health. Isaiah
52:11, II Corinthians 7:1, and I John 3:3 refer both to physical and spiritual cleanliness.
Cleanliness is indeed next to YaHVaH-likeness. Fasting is a way to cleanse your body internally, Isaiah 58:6-8.
Balm of Gilead (which can be obtained today) is a digestive cleanser, Jeremiah 8:22.
Bathing in running water is a Biblical prescription for cleanliness, Leviticus 15:13, II Kings 5:10.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of YaH, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of YaHVaH, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Deuteronomy/Deb 31:6 Chazak, Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for YaHVaH thy YaH, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
:7 And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which YaHVaH hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.
:8 And YaHVaH, He it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.“
Be at home with YaHVaH. Tabernacle with Him. Thank you YaHVaH! Chazak!
Josha 1:6 Chazak! Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper wherever thou goest.
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Have not I commanded thee? Chazaq! Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for YaHVaH thy YaH is with thee wherever thou goest.
1:18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.

Ezra_9:12 Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.
Be alert. Courageous, steadfast mind, prevail, strengthen, (Alert!) H553 aw-mats
Psa 80:17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest (made) strong H 553 for thyself. So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
Lest the scholar think that I am delving into petty issues of minor importance, consider I Corinthians 6:15-20, which shows that by keeping our bodily "temple" clean, we are honoring the Almighty by housing His Spirit in a clean body.
"Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of Yahvah." II Corinthians 7:1.
Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn is a medical heretic. He urges you to become informed. Armed with facts, he proves that annual physical examinations are a health risk, hospitals are dangerous places for the sick, many operations do little good and many do harm, many drugs cause more problems than they cure, and the x-ray machine may be the most pervasive and dangerous tool in the doctor's office.
Medicine is one of the most powerful forces in the Western World. Could it be that the end-time Beast system will utilize the immense medical religion's power to enforce its mark?
16:12 And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to YaHVaH, but to the physicians.
2 Cor 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) KJV
2 Corinthians 5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight.“ (TLV, and without parenthesis.)
The Good News Magazine "YaHVaH has PROMISED salvation and eternal life on the SAME conditions HE PROMISED healing -- obedience and faith. Messiah paid our penalty making possible eternal life by His shed blood on the cross. He paid the penalty for physical broken law making possible our HEALING by His stripes (Isaiah 53:5, I Peter 2:24). `Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases (Psalm 103:3).' If you can't believe the one, how can you believe the other?" (The Good News September 25, 1978).
The 1979 "Healing" booklet correctly states, the ministry of the Messiah was dual: (1) preaching the good news of the coming Kingdom of the Almighty on this earth, and (2) healing the sick. The proclaiming of the true gospel ALWAYS includes both.

To avoid plagues, abstain from contaminated and Scripturally forbidden meats such as pork, pepperoni but also filthy infested chicken and turkey. Try to cut-out all kinds of bacon, (turkey bacon also). To repeat: Fasting is good for your soul and spirit. Keep a well-balanced diet of fruits, vegetables and if possible, fish. Come, rejoice during the Feast!
Exodus 15:25 And he cried unto YaHVaH; and YaHVaH shewed him a Tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: There he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of YaHVaH thy Sovereign One, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am YaHVaH that healeth thee.
