Biblical Health WARNING: Yahweh NEVER Told The Apostle Peter He Was FREE to Eat Pig - The TRUTH About The Acts 10 Vision
I understand people’s confusion about Yahweh’s standards of foods. I used to be also. But when I came across Isaiah 66:16-17, and other Scriptures promising disease to those who disobey the commandments, I had to do some soul searching. I asked myself if Yahweh no longer cares how much pig we eat, why is everyone so sick and dying off so rapidly? The Bible says disease WILL COME to the disobedient. How can I not relate this to what I see in the world around me? Why didn’t Yahweh answer my Christian Pastor Father’s prayers to make his junk foods nutritious to his body? All the curses of Deuteronomy 28 are happening before my very eyes, but I’m still to believe we are not being held under the same Torah of Yahweh He gave His People under Moses. Something is not right. The largest Christian Nation in the World, but yet the most obese and sickliest nation in world history.
I had to leave the overweight and diseased Christian Church and re-read the Bible for myself because it seems to me most religious leaders are more concerned about their careers than seeking the truth on this matter. I mean what is more important that YOUR HEALTH? I’m not saying Pastors are all bad. I still listen to MANY Christian Pastors for help with marriage for instance. But when it comes to HEALTH, they have not a CLUE, as to what they are talking about, not a CLUE. They are riding the DEATH TRAIN like everyone else. And sadly, most of them are too full of foolish pride to change their ways.
And I’m talking about Hebrew Roots leaders also. My denomination. Just because you don’t eat Biblically unclean meats, does not mean you can gulp down on whatever you want. ALL believers, no matter which denomination or even religion, need to listen to my sermon on gluttony. But in this lecture, I want to focus on Biblical clean vs. unclean meats. Millions of overweight and diseased Christians still falsely believe they can eat all the swine they want. Forget the fact that during Christmas when everyone prays to Yahweh over their Christmas Ham, Yahweh’s response is a 5-10% increase in stroke and heart attack deaths. It never ceases to amaze me the power of food addiction.
One of the main proof texts my Fundamental Christian brothers and sisters believes gives them the authority to eat anything they want is the Vision Yahweh gave Peter. So it behooves me to go over this section of Scripture, as I have been receiving questions from those sincerely looking for the truth on this matter, as I once was. And as a Minister of Wellness, it is my great pleasure to speak the truth on this issue on behalf of the Apostles, and above all Yahweh my Father and my Master and Savior Yahushua HaMaschiac.
“FOR YAHWEH WILL EXECUTE JUDGMENT BY FIRE and by His sword on all flesh, and that slain by YAHWEH will be many. Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one in the center, WHO EAT SWINE’S FLESH, DETESTABLE THINGS and mice, will come to an end altogether, declares YAHWEH.”
And then we have so many Scriptures in Deuteronomy where Yahweh states He will give diseases NOT WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE to those who don’t obey Him. I witnessed my father; a Christian Pastor suffer from the diseases promised in Scripture. He was a voracious eater of swine’s flesh, and he paid a TERRIBLE price for his abominable diet-style with his health.
So with the vision of Peter. The first thing to understand it was a VISION – A DREAM. So NOTHING in a dream is real. All throughout Scripture we find Yahweh giving people DREAMS which then had to INTERPRETED. Joseph was a prime example. The seven stalks of grain in his dream REPRESENTED his family. Then he interpreted several dreams when he was in Egypt. In ALL THE DREAMS, what was IN THE DREAM WAS A SYMBOL FOR SOMETHING ELSE. That’s why it’s called a vision or a dream – IT’S NOT REAL. So that’s the same with Peter’s dream. Yahweh was not telling Him to disobey His Teachings on food and cook up a pork chop. Lol. And Peter knew this. Let’s go over it together. Remember Peter knew Isaiah 66:16-17 and Deuteronomy 28 very well. Matter of fact, THOSE WERE ALL THE SCRIPTURES THEY HAD.
Notice in Acts 10 in the very first verse, Cornelius a Yahweh-believing GENTILE, is told by an angel to meet with Peter. This fact is crucial to keep in mind. Why? Because Gentiles and Jews during that time HATED EACH OTHER; Up until this point, Peter had been strictly reaching out JEWS ONLY. But Yahweh had decided it was time for Peter to change. So after telling Cornelius to get ready to meet with Peter, Yahweh gives Peter this weird DREAM:
The next day at about the sixth hour, as the men were approaching the city on their journey, Peter went up on the roof to pray. He became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. He saw heaven open and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. It contained all kinds of four-footed animals and reptiles of the earth, as well as birds of the air. Then a voice spoke to him: “Get up, Peter, kill and eat!”
Now, Peter’s response is CRITICAL to understanding what HE BELIEVED about the importance of following the Torah of Yahweh:
“NO, LORD!” PETER ANSWERED, “I HAVE NEVER EATEN ANYTHING IMPURE OR UNCLEAN.”
Why? Why hadn’t Peter eaten anything unclean? I thought Yahushua declared all things clean in Mark 7 (another LIE and purposely fake addition added to the Words of our Messiah). I thought New Covenant Believers were now FREE from the Torah to eat whatever they want to eat. Why, YEARS AFTER THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF MESSIAH, IS PETER STILL OBEYING THE DIETARY LAWS OF YAHWEH? Why did Peter say NO? Was he deceived and Yahweh was now setting Him FREE? Or did Peter know, there was NO WAY, Yahweh was telling Him to SIN? Peter like Paul, believed “FAITH DOES NOT ABOLISH THE TORAH” – ROMANS 3:31.
According to Deuteronomy 13, if an angel from heaven or a prophet were to come performing miracles, and tries to convince them to disobey the commandments of Yahweh, they were to REJECT THE MESSAGE, because it is a test of their faithfulness to Yahweh (I’m going to preach on that one day). So after saying NO, the vision was repeated three times. And the voice in the DREAM said this:
“DO NOT CALL ANYTHING IMPURE THAT GOD HAS MADE CLEAN.”
Now AFTER the dream was over, did Peter now believe he was free to make a ham sandwich? NO! Besides, where in the Scriptures, had Yahweh made swine, catfish and shrimp clean? Notice the wording carefully. The voice told Peter not to call impure what Yahweh HAD ALREADY DECLARED CLEAN. So again, was Peter in violation of Torah by obeying outdated Dietary Laws? Had Peter missed something? Yahushua gave Peter the keys to the Kingdom. He was the head Apostle. Why wouldn’t Yahushua had made it clear to Peter he was free to eat whatever he wanted to eat when He gave Peter the Holy Spirit? No, Yahushua made it clear what His beliefs about Torah are in Matt. 5:17-19.
If you even break the LEAST of Yahweh’s commandments, you’re in a HEAP OF TROUBLE. Nowhere in the Scriptures, Peter had 2,000 years ago, had Yahweh made pork, catfish, shrimp, lobster, and crab CLEAN. So what in the world is this dream talking about? What has Yahweh made clean in SCRIPTURE, which Peter was still acting like was UNCLEAN? Peter KNEW this could not possibly be talking about eating the pig, so what is it talking about?
“WHILE PETER WAS PUZZLING OVER THE MEANING OF THE VISION”
Peter was confused. Yahweh called the pig an abomination and said if we eat it, WE BECOME AN ABOMINATION. Then Yahweh says He will inflict sickness and death on ALL who don’t obey His commandments – including food. Then He says if a prophet or dreamer of dreams tries to get you to disobey His commandments, to reject the message and put that false prophet or dreamer to DEATH. Then Isaiah prophesies at the Lake of Fire Judgement, eaters of unclean meats will be cast into the Lake of Fire. The Yahushua comes and makes it clear until heaven and earth pass away, every little part of Torah stands. Then Paul confirms faith does NOT abolish the Torah but causes it to STAND IN OUR LIVES. Then John goes so far as to state the very definition of SIN IS THE VIOLATION OF TORAH. LOL! Now you see why Peter was “PUZZLED”? He KNEW there was NO WAY this dream was telling Him to SIN. So what did it mean? What did all those unclean beasts REPRESENT?
“AS PETER CONTINUED TO REFLECT ON THE VISION, the Spirit told him; three men are here looking for you.”
Peter is still trying to figure out what in the world this dream represents. As he is still doing this, Yahweh tells him 3 MEN are there looking for him. And it is when he MEETS these men, IT ALL COMES TOGETHER. After meeting the men and Cornelius (GENTILE), Peter walked into a house of believers, and at this time; he finally understands what his NONTRUE DREAM, actually REPRESENTED:
“As Peter talked with him, he went inside and found many people gathered together. He said to them, YOU KNOW HOW UNLAWFUL IT IS FOR A JEW TO ASSOCIATE WITH A FOREIGNER OR VISIT HIM. BUT YAHWEH HAS SHOWN ME THAT I SHOULD NOT CALL ANY MAN IMPURE OR UNCLEAN.”
Bam! There it is. That’s the REAL MEANING of the DREAM. The Jews hated the Gentiles SO MUCH; they had made it UNLAWFUL (not Yahweh’s Law), to even SPEAK WITH GENTILES. And up until this point, Peter had been following this tradition of the Jews. But it was time for a change. Yahweh made the man. And in the absolute sense, we are ALL ONE BLOOD AND THE CHILDREN OF YAHWEH. At any time in Scripture, a Gentile could JOIN HIMSELF TO ISRAEL AND BE APART OF YAHWEH’S FAMILY. But by this time, with the Jews being under Roman rule, they had forgotten the Torah which states:
ALSO, THE FOREIGNERS who join themselves to YAHWEH, to minister to Him, and to love the name of YAHWEH, to be His servants, everyone who keeps from profaning the Sabbath and holds fast My covenant; Even those I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; For MY HOUSE WILL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE PEOPLES.”
Yahweh only reminded Peter of what the Scriptures state. Any foreigner who believes on Yahweh is to be treated as a member of His Family. Don’t call UNCLEAN, what Yahweh has called CLEAN. Don’t treat PEOPLE like they are PIGS. Especially those who BELIEVE. Yahweh is no respecter of persons. He does NOT CARE about RACE.
You don’t reject someone just because of RACE or ethnicity. If they are believers, they are OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS. And we’re not even to treat NON-BELIEVERS LIKE PIG. Because if Yahweh saved our rotten butts, He can save them also. THAT’S the meaning of the Vision to Peter. Yahweh wanted Peter to reach out beyond his race, to ALL NATIONS. And he had to correct Peter’s heart concerning Gentiles, because as Peter stated, so much hatred existed it was AGAINST MAN MADE JEWISH LAW EVEN TO ASSOCIATE WITH GENTILES!
At NO POINT in Acts 10, did Peter EVER THINK, that dream was telling him to eat abominable creatures; No sir, the Old, and New Covenants, contains the SAME TORAH. And the TORAH IS CLEAR, concerning the fate of those who make themselves an abomination with what they eat. There are NO Scriptures which contradicts the commandments of Yahweh He gave Moses. Our obese, sickly religious leaders have LIED TO US. And these lies, have affected us in the most important area of our lives: OUR HEALTH.
Leviticus 11:43 – “DO NOT MAKE YOURSELVES UNCLEAN using them or be made unclean by them.”
Ephesians 5:5 – “For this ye know, that no whoremonger, NOR UNCLEAN PERSON, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Yahushua and Yahweh.”
Leviticus 20:25 – “Ye shall, therefore, put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and YE SHALL NOT MAKE YOUR SOULS ABOMINABLE by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creeps on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean.”
Revelations 21:8 – “But to the cowardly and unbelieving AND ABOMINABLE and murderers and sexually immoral and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death.”
Isaiah 65: 1-5 – “I permitted Myself to be sought by those who did not ask for Me. I permitted Myself to be found by those who did not seek Me. I said, ‘Here am I, here am I, to a nation which did not call on My name “I HAVE SPREAD OUT MY HANDS ALL DAY LONG TO A REBELLIOUS PEOPLE WHO WALK IN THE WAY WHICH IS NOT GOOD, following their own thoughts A people who continually provoke Me to My Face Offering sacrifices in gardens and burning incense on bricks; Who sit among graves and spend the night in secret places; Who eat swine’s flesh, And the broth of unclean meat is in their pots. “Who say, ‘Keep to yourself, do not come near me, For I am holier than you! These are smoke in My nostrils, A fire that burns all the day.”
How much more sickness and death does Yahweh have to inflict on us before we get the message that ALL of His Torah, is to be obeyed? Everything we do, including what we put in our mouths, matters to Yahweh. How much more do you and your children and loved ones have to be stricken with diseases not mentioned in the Bible until we repent and start acknowledging Yahweh in ALL OUR WAYS?
II CHRONICLES 7:14 – “IF MY PEOPLE, WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, SHALL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY, AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN, AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.”
I hope you live a LONG LIFE IN EXCELLENT HEALTH,
And May YAHWEH, truly, have mercy on US ALL,
