Did you know there's a prophecy of the coming of Christ that says those who eat unclean meat, pork, will be consumed with the sinner? It's there but the church refuses to teach on it. Read More…


Acts 10:9-16 (NKJV) The next day, as they went on their journey and drew near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour. 10 Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance 11 and saw heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth. 12 In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air. 13 And a voice came to him, "Rise, Peter; kill and eat."
14 But Peter said, "Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean."
15 And a voice spoke to him again the second time, "What God has cleansed you must not call common." 16 This was done three times. And the object was taken up into heaven again.

This passage is one of the most used to support eating anything we want to eat. Out of context, it seems like a very viable passage; yet, within its context, it means something totally different. In verse twenty-eight, Peter explains the meaning of the vision.

Acts 10:28 (NKJV) Then he said to them, "You know how unlawful it is for a Jewish man to keep company with or go to one of another nation. But God has shown me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean.

The meaning of the vision had nothing to do with opening up the food table for anything we want; its purpose, and subject, was opening up the Gospel to the gentiles. The gentiles were viewed as common, as unclean. The apostles were not going to the gentiles with the Gospel and God showed Peter that they were not to consider the gentile common or unclean.

Praise God for this vision; for many of you may not be reading this study if it were not for this vision.

We now know that Acts 10:9-16 is not God giving us the ability to eat anything we want.

Part 3 - Do Not Judge in Meat or Drink


No matter the translation, when one looks at the context of what is being said, a question comes to mind: "What does eating unclean meat have to do with a shadow of things to come; which is Christ"? That's what verse 17 is saying. All these things, "WHICH were a shadow of things to come" The "substance" of those shadows "is Christ". Read More…


God creates a lot of good stuff, but there are often restrictions on it. Sex is good, but only in a marriage. Anger is not bad unless it causes you to sin. Food is good, but there are somethings that cannot be eaten. Read More…


Mark 7:14-16 (NKJV) When He had called all the multitude to Himself, He said to them, "Hear Me, everyone, and understand: 15 There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man. 16 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!"

Yahshua was not walking around just spitting out commands and sayings. When you read something He said, go back and see what action or statement caused Him to say what He said. To grab the context of what He's talking about here, we back up to verse five:

Mark 7:5-8 (NKJV) Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, "Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?"
6 He answered and said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:
'This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
7 And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'
8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men—the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do."

Yahshua makes note to the pharisees that their concern with man's traditions and refusal to follow God's commands is what defiles. While food, specifically eating with unwashed hands and not meat, was the trigger to the subject, the subject was not food. The subject was the actions of the pharisees; and their lack of obedience to God.

We've looked at four passages and, within their context, not one single passage is talking about types of meats.

The question is, "Did Christ ever give permission to eat dirty meat?"

If He did, then we are fine. Yet, if He didn't, then the law still stands and we could be in violation of the very subject of Mark 7; because we are following the traditions of commandments of men while forsaking the commands of God.

Part 6 - What Did Jesus Teach?


The question is, "Did Yahshua teach that we can now eat anything?" People believe the Bible does not say; I believe it does —— If we will just listen.

Yahshua had His twelve inner circle disciples. He also had three of an inner circle of an inner circle. Anytime He was going to do something special, He always took Peter, James, and John.

If we back up to the first passage we looked at, what do we see Peter saying?

Acts 10:14 (NKJV) But Peter said, "Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean."

Verse fifteen says that this was done three times; which means Peter, one of Yahshua's inner of the inner circle, was arguing with God on the fact that he has never eaten, nor will he eat dirty meat.

For Peter to be so adamant about not eating unclean meats that he would argue with God three times on the subject would mean that Yahshua never ate it; and, Yahshua never said: "The Spirit has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor, to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, and to open the food table to allow you to eat anything you want."

Since we see Christ tightening and loosening Old Testament Laws all over the place, in both teaching and action, the fact that He never taught against, nor acted against, the abstaining of unclean meat, that would mean that rule still exists today.

Part 7 - Eating Blood


Let's take this a step further. How do you like your steaks cooked? Medium rare / rare. You know there's a warning on the menu for a reason right? It's not there because the Bible says to avoid blood, but it does support the fact that the Bible, New Testament to be exact, says to avoid blood.

If you back up to the beginning of Acts 15, you see there's a debate on whether or not gentiles will be required to undergo circumcision. As a conclusion, James says:

Acts 15:20-21 (NKJV) but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood. 21 For Moses has had throughout many generations those who preach him in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath."

Why did James and the disciples decide to write only on these four subjects? Think about it. There are so many instructions in the New Testament; and, James, the book of James, is so full of things to do and avoid that it's a thorn in the side of the hyper-grace movement. Why did they choose only these four subjects?

Again, slow down and notice deliberate speech. Verse 21 says that Moses, being the first five books of the Bible as we know it, was preached to the gentiles through many generations. James and the other apostles were addressing what needed to be addressed. Just as in each letter we have in the New Testament, they were not writing a full list of how to act but rather addressing only what needed to be addressed.

Part 8 - Handwriting of Ordinances


Backing up to Colossians 2, because I stopped short to talk about this now, let's continue with what it was saying:

Colossians 2:13-14 (NKJV) And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us.

I often hear that we no longer are restricted from dirty meat because the handwriting of requirements was nailed to the cross. The handwriting of requirement was on Mt Sinai, and shortly after, by Moses. Back up to the days of Noah and we see God telling Noah:

Genesis 7:2-3 (NKJV) You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male, and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth.

This is about 1000 years before the handwriting of requirements, and clean and unclean were already established. Before a law was ever written, God already determined what would be clean and what would be unclean; what is suitable for sacrifice and food and what is not.

Part 9 - Judgements of God


We usually look at food very lightly and believe there would be no judgment for what we eat. We know there's a judgment of God coming in the end; but, we often forget there are judgments of God here now. Read More…


"Using a digestion technique alone, studies found recently that 17.15 percent (out of 344 unselected cadavers) were infected in Rochester, N.Y., and 27.6 percent (out of 58) in Boston, Mass.; McNaught and Anderson similarly found 24 percent (out of 200) in San Francisco, California. Riley and Scheifley, using a compression, direct examination technique, found that 17.9 percent (out of 117 cadavers) were infected in Minneapolis, while McGath, using a similar technique at the Mayo Clinic, found an infection rate of 7 percent (out of 220 cadavers). Hall and Collins find that it is necessary to use both techniques to get a true picture. They examined 300 cadavers in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Md., and found 13.67 percent infected. They estimate that the infection rate for the whole of the United States is about 17.5 percent."

So, out of those reading this article, it's likely that 17.5 percent are infected with the most deadly parasite to the human body. In comparison, in 2015, smoking deaths, in the US, equate to 1% of the population.

Don't tell me praying over it makes it ok. You stand a better chance praying over a cigarette.

Part 11 - Judgement at the Second Coming


Well, now that's interesting. In the very end, after the gentile who pursue God are being called by God's name, when Christ returns to render judgment, those who eat swines flesh will be consumed with the hypocrite. Read More…

To make things worse, we don't just choose food over God we choose food over God and then we mock God over our choice; not so much in WHAT we eat but in HOW MUCH we eat. We joke and make light about food and about gluttony as if God has no care in how much we eat. Read More…
