EVERYTHING IS REVEALED IN TIME.
Caring for the temple of God is important because the outcomes from not doing so is sickness. Sickness is a response to sin in the body. If you listen to the Lord, he will guide your diet and eating habits so that you do not introduce sin into the body. He will keep sin out and thus keep diseases from you, but diet is key.
Jesus shows us in Mark 4 how the applications of the Word and the conditions in which the word is found influences your physical and/or mental well being.
If your body is afflicted the doctors response will most likely say, "Well you can't fast, because your body will go into shock. Make sure you keep a piece of candy around."
Examples of sickness everywhere
As American citizens we have many examples in our culture and lifestyle where strange sickness are appearing everywhere. Saints are having heart attacks, bipolar disease, anxiety, stress, and many other problems. When saints turn to the Word of God and prayer it seems deliverance is far from them. Most just accept that this is the life they must live and leave off persuing the knowledge that could be obtained by learning how to overcome.
Satan is the prince
Remember: Satan is the prince of this world. He created the system we are born into so that he can anger God. The system shapes our beliefs, limits our understanding of what is true, and creates behaviors and reactions outlined by God as sinful.
We must, with much prayer, learn God's ways - lest we walk in a way that displeases him.
Men write history and tell stories to us in order to promote the system. When two people get into a fight, there are always two sides to the story. In history, only one side is told... the victor's. The one dead cannot tell his story.
Satan has designed this system to have the greatest impact on our minds and body. If he can control them chemically, then he will, in order to steal, kill and destroy - sounds familiar - which is precisely how America was founded. Men murdered their way into possessing this country and wrote the history we live by.
This is why we are told by God that we much change. We must give our bodies to Jesus Christ as a living sacrifice and to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Come out of this system of belief and embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ through the Holy Ghost.
If the children of Israel had questions about what or how it was not clear. But if we fast forward to our day and time, we can clearly see the affects of an imperfect diet on memory, physical strength and other things.
The american diet
The American diet is the worst in the world. Bio-engineered food, animals, plants, etc are killing the citizens. It makes sense why God gave the children of Israel a diet that was very different from other cultures and commanded that they not eat diets from other nations, nor learn their ways or collect their stuff.
As I said before, everything given to man from God answers specific problems related to sin in the flesh.
If we ignore this idea, then we cannot appropriately address sin.
Important note: I am not, by any means asking you to eat a Jewish diet, nor is God asking you to burden yourself with this ritual. What I am saying is that you need to prove that your current diet is appropriate and the only way you can do that it is by testing it.
Learning to posses your vessel in sanctification and honour will answer problems dealing with health (mental, physical and otherwise). It is God’s will that we be holy. The whole object of our redemption is about pleasing God. Therefore we ought to be holy, and if we ought, we can; and if we can, we must; and if we must we will!
We cannot posses ourselves
Unfortunately you cannot possess yourself by your own nature. Your nature is sinful and therefore must be possessed by the Holy Spirit. God gave the Holy Ghost for this purpose. He gave us the Holy Ghost so that we can rewrite our life in ways that please God.
1Co 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
1Co 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
