  • FRIENDS OF THE AMAZING FACTS MINISTRY.
  • 00:00:04.140 --> 00:00:07.040
  • DOUG BATCHELOR: IN 1629 THE EMPEROR OF INDIA,
  • 00:00:08.290 --> 00:00:11.120
  • SHAH JAHAN, WENT ON A MILITARY CAMPAIGN TO CRUSH A REBELLION
  • 00:00:11.130 --> 00:00:15.040
  • IN HIS KINGDOM.
  • 00:00:15.050 --> 00:00:16.230
  • EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS ILL AND PREGNANT,
  • 00:00:16.240 --> 00:00:18.240
  • HIS WIFE JOINED HIM ON THE GRUELING JOURNEY.
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:21.130
  • ON THE WAY SHE COLLAPSED, GAVE BIRTH TO THEIR DAUGHTER,
  • 00:00:21.140 --> 00:00:24.110
  • AND THEN DIED.
  • 00:00:24.120 --> 00:00:25.250
  • THE BEAUTIFUL EMPRESS WAS ONLY 39 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:00:25.260 --> 00:00:28.210
  • BESIDE HIMSELF WITH GRIEF, THE EMPEROR CARRIED HIS WIFE'S BODY
  • 00:00:28.220 --> 00:00:32.070
  • HOME AND CONSTANTLY WORE WHITE ROBES OF MOURNING.
  • 00:00:32.080 --> 00:00:35.140
  • WHEN HE FINALLY CAME OUT OF SECLUSION,
  • 00:00:35.150 --> 00:00:37.150
  • HE ORDERED THAT A BEAUTIFUL PALACE BE BUILT
  • 00:00:37.160 --> 00:00:39.230
  • FOR HIS BELOVED WIFE.
  • 00:00:39.240 --> 00:00:41.090
  • IT WAS NEVER TO BE CALLED A TOMB;
  • 00:00:41.100 --> 00:00:43.060
  • IT WAS TO BE CALLED BY THE INDIAN WORD,
  • 00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:45.100
  • MAHAL, MEANING PALACE.
  • 00:00:45.110 --> 00:00:47.290
  • THE PALACE THAT THE EMPEROR BUILT IS ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:51.000
  • BREATHTAKING STRUCTURES EVER BUILT.
  • 00:00:51.010 --> 00:00:53.070
  • A DAZZLING WONDER OF MARBLE AND JEWELS KNOWN TODAY
  • 00:00:53.080 --> 00:00:57.110
  • AS THE TAJ MAHAL.
  • 00:00:57.120 --> 00:00:58.270
  • THIS MAJESTIC TOMB IS AN ABIDING MEMORIAL OF THE EMPEROR'S
  • 00:00:58.280 --> 00:01:03.030
  • LOVE FOR HIS WIFE.
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:04.130
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS ALSO GIVEN BELIEVERS AN ETERNAL
  • 00:01:04.140 --> 00:01:08.140
  • MEMORIAL OF HIS CREATIVE POWER OF LOVE?
  • 00:01:08.150 --> 00:01:11.270
  • IT'S BUILT NOT IN MARBLE BUT IN TIME,
  • 00:01:11.280 --> 00:01:15.090
  • AND IT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:17.060
  • SO, LET'S DIVE INTO TOGETHER NOW AND EXPLORE THIS IMPORTANT AND
  • 00:01:17.070 --> 00:01:20.190
  • FASCINATING SUBJECT.
  • 00:01:20.200 --> 00:01:22.200
  • DOUG: WE'RE GOING TO START WITH A
  • 00:01:26.190 --> 00:01:28.030
  • STORY THAT YOU FIND IN THE BIBLE IN THE BOOK
  • 00:01:28.040 --> 00:01:32.050
  • OF DANIEL - DANIEL CHAPTER 1 - AND IT'S CALLED
  • 00:01:32.060 --> 00:01:35.250
  • BABYLON'S BUFFET AND THIS IS BASED UPON DANIEL 1,
  • 00:01:35.260 --> 00:01:40.270
  • VERSES 1 THROUGH 21 - IT'S A WHOLE CHAPTER.
  • 00:01:40.280 --> 00:01:43.050
  • NOW DANIEL IS A BOOK THAT DEALS A LOT WITH PROPHECY, BUT
  • 00:01:43.060 --> 00:01:46.000
  • IT'S INTERESTING HOW THE BOOK OF DANIEL BEGINS WITH A TEST.
  • 00:01:46.010 --> 00:01:50.290
  • ABOUT 500 YEARS BEFORE CHRIST, KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR INVADED
  • 00:01:51.000 --> 00:01:54.090
  • JERUSALEM, AND ON HIS FIRST ATTACK ON THE CITY
  • 00:01:54.100 --> 00:01:58.180
  • HE CARRIED AWAY THOUSANDS OF PRISONERS FROM
  • 00:01:58.190 --> 00:02:01.280
  • JERUSALEM TO BABYLON AND AMONG THOSE HE CARRIED
  • 00:02:01.290 --> 00:02:05.080
  • AWAY WERE SOME OF THE PRINCES OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:02:05.090 --> 00:02:09.100
  • SOME OF THEM, THE BIBLE FORETOLD, WERE DESCENDANTS OF
  • 00:02:09.110 --> 00:02:12.090
  • KING HEZEKIAH. AND THEY WERE TAKEN AND THEY
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:15.070
  • WERE EDUCATED IN THE PALACE OF BABYLON.
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:18.210
  • AND THE KING SAID, 'LOOK, WE'RE GOING TO TEACH YOU
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:20.090
  • THE LANGUAGE OF THE BABYLONIANS' - HE TOOK THE
  • 00:02:20.100 --> 00:02:21.260
  • BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST LOOKING OF ALL THE ROYAL
  • 00:02:21.270 --> 00:02:25.050
  • CHILDREN BACK TO BABYLON AND HE SAID, 'I'M GOING TO
  • 00:02:25.060 --> 00:02:28.210
  • TRAIN YOU IN ALL THE SCIENCES OF BABYLON,' -
  • 00:02:28.220 --> 00:02:31.270
  • WHICH WAS THE MOST SOPHISTICATED PLACE IN THE
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.190
  • WORLD AT THE TIME - 'AND AFTER THREE YEARS, THOSE
  • 00:02:33.200 --> 00:02:37.020
  • WHO PASSED THE TEST - THE CREAM OF THE CROP - WILL
  • 00:02:37.030 --> 00:02:39.130
  • STAND BEFORE ME AND THEY WILL BE REPRESENTATIVES TO
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:42.200
  • THESE OTHER NATIONS.' NEBUCHADNEZZAR WAS REALLY
  • 00:02:42.210 --> 00:02:46.040
  • A VERY SMART LEADER AND HE HAD GREAT COUNSELORS AND
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:48.130
  • THIS WAS A WISE PLAN. SO AMONG SOME OF THE THOUSANDS
  • 00:02:48.140 --> 00:02:51.290
  • THAT WERE CARRIED FROM JERUSALEM WERE FOUR HEBREW YOUNG MEN.
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:55.180
  • THEIR JEWISH NAMES WERE DANIEL, HANANIAH, MISHAEL,
  • 00:02:55.190 --> 00:02:59.240
  • AND AZARIAH. BABYLONIAN NAMES WERE
  • 00:02:59.250 --> 00:03:02.250
  • BELTESHAZAR, SHADRACH, MESHACH, AND ABEDNEGO.
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:07.130
  • AND DANIEL, SHADRACH, MESHACH, AND ABEDNEGO WENT
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:11.250
  • TO THIS SCHOOL, BUT THEN THEY FOUND OUT THAT THEY
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:14.050
  • WERE GOING TO BE REQUIRED TO EAT FROM THE ROYAL
  • 00:03:14.060 --> 00:03:16.010
  • CAFETERIA. NOW MOST CAPTIVES WOULD
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:17.190
  • HAVE BEEN THRILLED. ALL THE OTHER STUDENTS
  • 00:03:17.200 --> 00:03:19.230
  • FROM THE OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD NEBUCHADNEZZAR
  • 00:03:19.240 --> 00:03:21.150
  • CONQUERED - THEY WERE THRILLED THAT THEY
  • 00:03:21.160 --> 00:03:22.270
  • GOT TO EAT AT THE BABYLONIAN BUFFET.
  • 00:03:22.280 --> 00:03:25.270
  • IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:03:25.280 --> 00:03:28.280
  • BUT RIGHT AWAY DANIEL AND HIS FRIENDS REALIZED THEY
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:31.130
  • COULDN'T EAT THAT BECAUSE THERE WAS FOOD IN THERE
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:33.070
  • THAT GOD HAD DESIGNATED AS UNCLEAN.
  • 00:03:33.080 --> 00:03:36.160
  • AND IT SAYS IN DANIEL 1, VERSE 8, "BUT DANIEL
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:39.230
  • PURPOSED IN HIS HEART THAT HE WOULD NOT DEFILE
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:42.280
  • HIMSELF WITH THE PORTION OF THE KING'S DELICACIES,
  • 00:03:42.290 --> 00:03:46.200
  • NOR WITH THE WINE WHICH HE DRANK;" - SO DANIEL WENT
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:50.020
  • TO THE CHIEF OF THE EUNUCHS, WHICH WAS IN
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:51.250
  • CHARGE OF THE PREPARATION AND THEIR TRAINING,
  • 00:03:51.260 --> 00:03:54.090
  • AND HE SAID, 'LET US JUST EAT VEGETABLES.
  • 00:03:54.100 --> 00:03:57.130
  • GIVE US TEN DAYS.' AND YOU'LL FIND THE KING JAMES
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:03:59.140
  • WORD THERE IS 'PULSE' - SOME OF YOUR TRANSLATIONS
  • 00:03:59.150 --> 00:04:01.270
  • IT JUST SAYS VEGETABLES - AND HE SAID, 'OH, I CAN'T
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:04.210
  • DO THAT.' - HE SAYS - 'THE KING'S GOING TO LOOK AT
  • 00:04:04.220 --> 00:04:06.100
  • YOU AND SAY, 'HOW COME THESE YOUNG MEN ARE SICK?'
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:08.050
  • AND I'M GOING TO SAY, 'WELL, THEY'RE NOT EATING THE
  • 00:04:08.060 --> 00:04:09.210
  • FOOD THAT YOU PROVIDED.' 'WHAT?
  • 00:04:09.220 --> 00:04:11.080
  • MY FOOD WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEM?'
  • 00:04:11.090 --> 00:04:12.290
  • AND HE SAID, 'HE'LL TAKE MY HEAD OFF.' DANIEL SAID,
  • 00:04:13.000 --> 00:04:15.020
  • 'YOU TEST US. GIVE US TEN DAYS.
  • 00:04:15.030 --> 00:04:16.280
  • IF WE DON'T LOOK OKAY, FINE.' SO, FOR TEN DAYS
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:21.220
  • THEY ATE NOTHING BUT VEGETABLES.
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:24.240
  • THEY ATE VEGETABLE STEW AND A VEGETARIAN DIET - DRANK
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:28.110
  • WATER - AND THE BIBLE SAYS - DANIEL 1, VERSE 15 -
  • 00:04:28.120 --> 00:04:32.220
  • "AND AT THE END OF TEN DAYS THEIR COUNTENANCES
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:35.190
  • APPEARED FAIRER AND FATTER IN FLESH THAN ALL THE
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:39.090
  • CHILDREN WHICH DID EAT THE PORTION OF THE KING'S
  • 00:04:39.100 --> 00:04:41.130
  • MEAT." THEY WERE HEALTHIER THAN
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:44.030
  • THOSE WHO WERE EATING FROM THE CAFETERIA OF BABYLON.
  • 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:46.190
  • NOW WHY DOES THE BIBLE INCLUDE THIS STORY?
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:51.010
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN NEBUCHADNEZZAR HAD THEM
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:52.230
  • TESTED - PROBABLY BY HIMSELF AS WELL AS HIS
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:55.260
  • OTHER WISE MEN IN THE KINGDOM - THEY FOUND THAT
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:04:58.250
  • AMONG ALL THE CAPTIVES THAT HAD BEEN TRAINED,
  • 00:04:58.260 --> 00:05:01.070
  • DANIEL, HANANIAH, MISHAEL, AND AZARIAH WERE TEN TIMES
  • 00:05:01.080 --> 00:05:05.170
  • WISER - TEN TIMES WISER - THAN ANY OF THE OTHERS WHO
  • 00:05:05.180 --> 00:05:10.170
  • HAD TRAINED. BEING A CHRISTIAN IS NOT
  • 00:05:10.180 --> 00:05:13.190
  • JUST ABOUT A CHANGE IN YOUR THINKING.
  • 00:05:13.200 --> 00:05:16.120
  • BEING A CHRISTIAN IS AN ENTIRE TRANSFORMATION AND
  • 00:05:16.130 --> 00:05:20.230
  • 'WHATEVER YOU EAT AND WHATEVER YOU DRINK, DO ALL
  • 00:05:20.240 --> 00:05:23.040
  • TO THE GLORY OF GOD.' IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:25.100
  • WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR BODY.
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:26.240
  • YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:05:26.250 --> 00:05:29.280
  • AND A TRUTH THAT HAS BEEN LOST IN RECENT YEARS TO
  • 00:05:29.290 --> 00:05:34.110
  • CHRISTIANITY - BOTH PROTESTANTS AND CATHOLICS
  • 00:05:34.120 --> 00:05:37.270
  • AND EVANGELICALS - IS A VERY CLEAR BIBLICAL TEACHING
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:41.110
  • THAT WE ARE TO TAKE CARE OF OUR BODIES.
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:44.270
  • WE ARE TO BE CAREFUL. WE ARE TO USE SELF-CONTROL
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:47.140
  • AND ESPECIALLY IS THAT IMPORTANT WHEN WE'RE
  • 00:05:47.150 --> 00:05:49.240
  • LIVING IN A SOCIETY THAT IS DROWNING IN ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:53.100
  • #1 - WHAT WAS THE ORIGINAL DIET THAT GOD DESIGNED FOR
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:56.130
  • HUMANS IN THE BEGINNING - WE'RE GOING ALL THE WAY
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:58.140
  • BACK TO GENESIS NOW - FIRST CHAPTER IN THE
  • 00:05:58.150 --> 00:06:01.060
  • BIBLE, GENESIS 1:29, AND GOD SAID, 'BEHOLD, I HAVE
  • 00:06:01.070 --> 00:06:06.060
  • GIVEN YOU EVERY HERB BEARING SEED,'" - AND
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:10.040
  • THAT'S TALKING ABOUT EVERY PLANT.
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:12.030
  • AND IT GOES ON TO SAY, "...AND EVERY TREE, IN THE
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:15.040
  • WHICH IS THE FRUIT OF A TREE YIELDING SEED; TO YOU
  • 00:06:15.050 --> 00:06:20.210
  • IT SHALL BE FOR MEAT.'" - AND THAT WORD 'MEAT' THERE
  • 00:06:20.220 --> 00:06:23.170
  • IS THE OLD ENGLISH WORD. IT MEANS 'FOOD' - IT'S
  • 00:06:23.180 --> 00:06:25.200
  • LIKE THE MEAT OF A NUT - IT JUST MEANS 'THE FOOD'.
  • 00:06:25.210 --> 00:06:27.240
  • SO THE ORIGINAL DIET FOR ADAM AND EVE WAS WHAT?
  • 00:06:27.250 --> 00:06:31.150
  • FRUITS, GRAINS, NUTS - IT WAS A 'FRUITARIAN' DIET.
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:36.180
  • THEY PROBABLY DIDN'T EVEN COOK ANY FOOD BACK THERE.
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:38.280
  • HOW LONG DID GOD INTEND FOR ADAM AND EVE TO LIVE
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:41.170
  • WHEN HE FIRST MADE THEM? -FOREVER.
  • 00:06:41.180 --> 00:06:43.080
  • -FOREVER. AND THEN, AFTER SIN, GOD
  • 00:06:43.090 --> 00:06:48.250
  • ADDED ONE MORE THING TO THE DIET BECAUSE HE SAID,
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:50.290
  • 'YOU CAN'T EAT FROM THE TREE OF LIFE ANY LONGER.'
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:53.090
  • AFTER ADAM AND EVE SINNED IT SAYS, 'WHAT
  • 00:06:53.100 --> 00:06:54.280
  • SUPPLEMENTAL FOOD DID GOD THEN ADD TO THEIR DIET?'
  • 00:06:54.290 --> 00:06:58.050
  • GENESIS 3:18, IT SAYS, "...THOU SHALT EAT THE
  • 00:06:58.060 --> 00:07:03.110
  • HERB OF THE FIELD." THAT MEANS THE VEGETABLE.
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:06.290
  • BUT A VEGETABLE IS TECHNICALLY - OH, LET ME
  • 00:07:07.000 --> 00:07:10.180
  • GIVE YOU A TEST AND FIND OUT - FRUIT OR VEGETABLE -
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:14.190
  • BANANA? -FRUIT.
  • 00:07:14.200 --> 00:07:16.080
  • -FRUIT. APPLE? -FRUIT.
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:18.100
  • -ZUCCHINI? -VEGETABLE.
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:20.250
  • -FRUIT. EGGPLANT? -VEGETABLE.
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:25.110
  • -FRUIT. BRUSSELS SPROUTS?
  • 00:07:25.120 --> 00:07:28.250
  • -VEGETABLE. -INEDIBLE.
  • 00:07:28.260 --> 00:07:31.070
  • (LAUGHTER) BRUSSELS SPROUTS ARE ACTUALLY A VEGETABLE.
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:36.150
  • CELERY? -VEGETABLE.
  • 00:07:36.160 --> 00:07:38.130
  • -IT'S A VEGETABLE. POTATO?
  • 00:07:38.140 --> 00:07:40.260
  • -VEGETABLE. -IT'S A VEGETABLE.
  • 00:07:40.270 --> 00:07:42.130
  • SO ANY PART OF THE PLANT OTHER THAN THE SEED AND
  • 00:07:42.140 --> 00:07:44.210
  • THE PRODUCT OF THE FLOWER - A FRUIT IS THE PRODUCT OF
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:46.220
  • THE FLOWER - IS GOING TO BE A VEGETABLE - THE
  • 00:07:46.230 --> 00:07:49.190
  • STALK, THE LEAVES, THE FLOWERS - THOSE ARE ALL
  • 00:07:49.200 --> 00:07:51.040
  • CONSIDERED TO BE VEGETABLES.
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:52.220
  • THE ROOT - YOU KNOW, THEY'RE TUBERS - A POTATO.
  • 00:07:52.230 --> 00:07:57.040
  • SO HE ADDED THAT TO THE DIET AND THERE WERE ALL
  • 00:07:57.050 --> 00:07:58.230
  • KINDS OF IMPORTANT ENZYMES AND THINGS IN THERE.
  • 00:07:58.240 --> 00:08:01.230
  • SO THERE ARE BENEFITS - THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT
  • 00:08:01.240 --> 00:08:04.080
  • THERE ARE BENEFITS TO EATING A VEGETABLE-BASED DIET.
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:07.030
  • FOR AWHILE, PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT SEVENTH-DAY
  • 00:08:07.040 --> 00:08:09.030
  • ADVENTISTS WERE KOOKS, BUT I DON'T KNOW IF YOU READ
  • 00:08:09.040 --> 00:08:11.160
  • THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.
  • 00:08:11.170 --> 00:08:14.010
  • IT SAID - THEY PICKED OUT THE THREE LONGEST LIVING
  • 00:08:14.020 --> 00:08:16.250
  • PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. DID YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:08:16.260 --> 00:08:19.180
  • YOU CAN GO LOOK THIS UP. NUMBER 1, THERE WERE
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:21.200
  • PEOPLE IN SARDINIA IN - OFF OF ITALY IN THE
  • 00:08:21.210 --> 00:08:25.020
  • MEDITERRANEAN, THE PEOPLE OF OKINAWA, AND THE
  • 00:08:25.030 --> 00:08:28.270
  • SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS, PRINCIPALLY IN THE LOMA
  • 00:08:28.280 --> 00:08:31.050
  • LINDA AREA WHERE THEY HAVE A UNIVERSITY AND THERE'S
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:32.270
  • A LARGE CONCENTRATION. THEY STUDIED THEM.
  • 00:08:32.280 --> 00:08:34.230
  • THEY LIVED THE LONGEST OF ANY PEOPLE GROUPS IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:08:34.240 --> 00:08:38.170
  • AND WHEN THEY ASKED WHY DO THESE PEOPLE LIVE LONGER,
  • 00:08:38.180 --> 00:08:40.250
  • THEY SAID, 'WELL, SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS -
  • 00:08:40.260 --> 00:08:42.250
  • IT'S THE COMMUNITY, THE REST FROM THE SABBATH, AND
  • 00:08:42.260 --> 00:08:45.030
  • THEY'RE LARGELY - NOT ENTIRELY, BUT LARGELY - A
  • 00:08:45.040 --> 00:08:47.240
  • VEGETARIAN LIFESTYLE - HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:50.100
  • AND SO, WHAT WE'RE SHARING WITH YOU IS NOT SOME
  • 00:08:50.110 --> 00:08:53.020
  • RELIGIOUS BELIEF, THIS IS HARD, SCIENTIFIC FACT -
  • 00:08:53.030 --> 00:08:56.080
  • THAT IF YOU EAT - THE CLOSER TO THE BIBLICAL
  • 00:08:56.090 --> 00:08:59.150
  • DIET THAT GOD PRESCRIBED, THE LONGER YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:08:59.160 --> 00:09:03.260
  • LIVE, THE BETTER YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL, THE LESS
  • 00:09:03.270 --> 00:09:05.130
  • DISEASE YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE.
  • 00:09:05.140 --> 00:09:07.260
  • IN THE MANUAL HE TELLS YOU WHAT THE IDEAL DIET IS FOR
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:10.060
  • MAN, AND FOLLOWING THAT DIET WILL CERTAINLY MAKE
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:13.170
  • YOU FEEL BETTER. I'LL SHARE A LITTLE MORE
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:15.040
  • PERSONALLY WITH YOU AS WE PROCEED.
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:17.210
  • WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY, MORE SPECIFICALLY, ABOUT
  • 00:09:17.220 --> 00:09:19.230
  • EATING? ARE THERE SOME MAMMALS -
  • 00:09:19.240 --> 00:09:21.170
  • SOME FOODS THAT ARE CLEAN AND SOME THAT ARE UNCLEAN?
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:23.290
  • YOU KNOW, DANIEL SAID HE WOULDN'T DEFILE HIMSELF
  • 00:09:24.000 --> 00:09:26.240
  • WITH THE MEAT WHICH THE KING'S SERVANTS WERE
  • 00:09:26.250 --> 00:09:28.180
  • EATING. WHAT MAMMALS DOES GOD
  • 00:09:28.190 --> 00:09:30.160
  • PERMIT HUMANS TO EAT? THAT'S QUESTION #9.
  • 00:09:30.170 --> 00:09:33.080
  • YOU LOOK IN LEVITICUS 11, VERSE 3, IT TELLS US THAT
  • 00:09:33.090 --> 00:09:36.180
  • THERE'S TWO CRITERIA THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ON A
  • 00:09:36.190 --> 00:09:38.180
  • MAMMAL THAT IS GOING TO BE EATEN.
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:40.050
  • IT SAYS, WHATEVER DOES WHAT?
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:42.030
  • PARTS THE HOOF, AND IS CLOVEN FOOTED - AND CHEWS
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:47.030
  • THE CUD - THESE ARE CLEAN. NOW, THAT WOULD MEAN THAT
  • 00:09:47.040 --> 00:09:51.110
  • GOAT, SHEEP, DEER, ELK, MOOSE, THESE THINGS ARE
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:57.170
  • WHAT YOU WOULD CALL 'CLEAN' ANIMALS.
  • 00:09:57.180 --> 00:10:00.000
  • BUT THEN HE GOES ON TO SAY SOME THINGS THAT MAY CHEW
  • 00:10:00.010 --> 00:10:02.210
  • THE CUD - LIKE A CAMEL - BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE A CLOVEN HOOF.
  • 00:10:02.220 --> 00:10:04.260
  • IT NEEDED BOTH CRITERIA - THEY'RE UNCLEAN.
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:08.090
  • I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE PROBABLY THINKING, 'OH,
  • 00:10:08.100 --> 00:10:09.270
  • DOUG, YOU TELL ME I HAVE TO GET RID OF MY CAMEL
  • 00:10:09.280 --> 00:10:11.160
  • STEAK TONIGHT AFTER THE PROGRAM.' (LAUGHTER) YES.
  • 00:10:11.170 --> 00:10:14.100
  • THAT'S WHY JESUS MADE FUN OF THE PHARISEES.
  • 00:10:14.110 --> 00:10:16.240
  • HE SAID, 'YOU'RE HYPOCRITES.
  • 00:10:16.250 --> 00:10:18.120
  • YOU STRAIN A GNAT' - WHAT HE MEANT BY THAT WAS THEY
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:21.050
  • USED TO POUR THEIR WATER THROUGH THESE STRAINING
  • 00:10:21.060 --> 00:10:23.090
  • CLOTHS - THEY SAID, 'LEST WE HAVE A GNAT IN THERE
  • 00:10:23.100 --> 00:10:26.030
  • AND IT'S UNCLEAN.' THEY WOULD STRAIN THEIR WATER
  • 00:10:26.040 --> 00:10:28.220
  • TO PREVENT EATING A GNAT, BUT WHEN NO ONE WAS
  • 00:10:28.230 --> 00:10:31.040
  • LOOKING THEY'D EAT A CAMEL STEAK, WHICH WAS UNCLEAN,
  • 00:10:31.050 --> 00:10:32.260
  • BIBLICALLY. HE SAYS, 'YOU STRAIN A
  • 00:10:32.270 --> 00:10:34.060
  • GNAT AND YOU SWALLOW A CAMEL.
  • 00:10:34.070 --> 00:10:35.190
  • YOU EVER HEARD THAT EXPRESSION BEFORE?
  • 00:10:35.200 --> 00:10:36.290
  • THAT'S WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:38.180
  • HE'S SAYING 'YOU'RE HYPOCRITES.
  • 00:10:38.190 --> 00:10:40.020
  • YOU KNOW CAMEL IS UNCLEAN BUT YOU'RE SO AFRAID OF A
  • 00:10:40.030 --> 00:10:41.250
  • LITTLE GNAT AND WHEN NO ONE'S LOOKING YOU EAT
  • 00:10:41.260 --> 00:10:43.140
  • CAMEL STEAK.' IF YOU'RE GOING TO EAT MEAT, IT
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:47.130
  • NEEDS TO HAVE THOSE TWO CRITERIA -
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:49.200
  • BE CLOVEN HOOFED AND CHEW THE CUD.
  • 00:10:49.210 --> 00:10:52.190
  • NOW THERE ARE SOME OF YOU WHO ARE THINKING, 'WELL,
  • 00:10:52.200 --> 00:10:53.290
  • PASTOR DOUG, BUT DIDN'T - AREN'T HUMANS DESIGNED TO
  • 00:10:54.000 --> 00:10:55.280
  • EAT MEAT AND ISN'T THAT WHY GOD GAVE US THESE, YOU
  • 00:10:55.290 --> 00:10:58.010
  • KNOW, CANINE TEETH FOR THE RIPPING AND TEARING OF MEAT.
  • 00:10:58.020 --> 00:11:00.230
  • SEE THIS CHARACTER ON THE SCREEN?
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:07.160
  • HE'S GOT CANINE TEETH TOO. HE'S A VEGETARIAN.
  • 00:11:07.170 --> 00:11:11.030
  • SO IT'S JUST - THERE'S ALL KINDS OF MYTHS OUT THERE.
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:13.050
  • MATTER OF FACT, THE ANIMAL WITH THE BIGGEST TEETH IS
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:14.270
  • AN ELEPHANT AND HIPPO - THEY'RE ALL VEGETARIANS.
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:17.120
  • SO, PEOPLE SAY ALL KINDS OF--
  • 00:11:17.130 --> 00:11:19.040
  • LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED BIBLICALLY WHEN - BEFORE
  • 00:11:19.050 --> 00:11:22.280
  • THE FLOOD, YOU CAN SEE - OF COURSE THERE WAS LOTS
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:25.290
  • OF VEGETATION BACK THEN - YOU'VE GOT METHUSELAH -
  • 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:29.150
  • 969 YEARS, NOAH - 950 YEARS, SETH - 912 YEARS.
  • 00:11:29.160 --> 00:11:33.160
  • IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE FLOOD IT DROPS DOWN TO 500
  • 00:11:33.170 --> 00:11:37.050
  • YEARS, 200 YEARS, ABRAHAM - 175 YEARS, JACOB -
  • 00:11:37.060 --> 00:11:41.060
  • 147 YEARS, DAVID 70 YEARS.
  • 00:11:41.070 --> 00:11:45.030
  • AND DAVID SAID, 'NOW OUR YEARS ARE THREE-SCORE AND
  • 00:11:45.040 --> 00:11:48.000
  • TEN.' THAT'S ABOUT 70 - AS AN AVERAGE.
  • 00:11:48.010 --> 00:11:50.130
  • AND HE SAID, 'IF, BY REASON OF STRENGTH, IT'S
  • 00:11:50.140 --> 00:11:51.290
  • FOUR-SCORE' - THAT'S 80 - HE SAID, 'IT'S STILL WITH
  • 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:54.070
  • MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING.' AND SO OUR TIME IS LIMITED.
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:58.260
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE FLOOD?
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:12:01.050
  • ALL THE VEGETATION WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:12:01.060 --> 00:12:02.220
  • NOAH WAS TOLD TO TAKE THE CLEAN ANIMALS ON THE ARK
  • 00:12:02.230 --> 00:12:06.040
  • BY SEVENS - UNCLEAN JUST TWO. WHY?
  • 00:12:06.050 --> 00:12:09.190
  • IF THEY WERE ALLOWED TO EAT THE UNCLEAN ANIMALS
  • 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:11.220
  • THERE WOULD BE A LOT MORE EXTINCT SPECIES, RIGHT?
  • 00:12:11.230 --> 00:12:14.030
  • THEY WOULD HAVE EATEN THEM DURING THE FLOOD.
  • 00:12:14.040 --> 00:12:15.230
  • BUT YOU'RE ONLY ALLOWED TO SACRIFICE THE CLEAN
  • 00:12:15.240 --> 00:12:18.060
  • ANIMALS. WHAT TYPES OF FISH AND
  • 00:12:18.070 --> 00:12:20.180
  • SEAFOOD ARE CONSIDERED CLEAN, BIBLICALLY?
  • 00:12:20.190 --> 00:12:23.150
  • LEVITICUS 11, VERSE 9, "THESE YOU MAY EAT OF ALL
  • 00:12:23.160 --> 00:12:27.230
  • THAT ARE IN THE WATER: WHATEVER...HAS FINS AND
  • 00:12:27.240 --> 00:12:33.060
  • SCALES," - IT NEEDED BOTH CHARACTERISTICS TO BE
  • 00:12:33.070 --> 00:12:35.140
  • CLEAN AND THE REASON FOR THAT WAS THERE'S A LOT OF
  • 00:12:35.150 --> 00:12:39.250
  • STRANGE THINGS THAT ARE OUT THERE IN THE OCEAN AND
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:41.130
  • SOME OF THEM ARE POISONOUS.
  • 00:12:41.140 --> 00:12:43.240
  • DOUG: DON'T GO ANYWHERE, FRIENDS.

  • MORE AMAZING FACTS FROM THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:13:52.130 --> 00:13:55.090
  • DOUG: YOU KNOW, THE U.S. NAVY DID A STUDY A FEW
  • 00:13:56.290 --> 00:13:58.280
  • YEARS AGO WHERE THEY SAID,
  • 00:13:58.290 --> 00:14:01.180
  • 'WHAT DO WE GIVE, AS A RULE OF THUMB, TO SAILORS
  • 00:14:01.190 --> 00:14:03.260
  • OR PILOTS THAT ARE SHOT DOWN - IF THEY NEED TO EAT
  • 00:14:03.270 --> 00:14:06.130
  • SEAFOOD WHILE THEY'RE FLOATING AROUND ON THESE
  • 00:14:06.140 --> 00:14:08.070
  • RAFTS - BECAUSE DURING WORLD WAR II A LOT OF
  • 00:14:08.080 --> 00:14:09.230
  • THEM, THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THEY COULD AND
  • 00:14:09.240 --> 00:14:11.170
  • COULDN'T EAT. THEY SPENT MILLIONS OF
  • 00:14:11.180 --> 00:14:13.160
  • GOVERNMENT DOLLARS. THEY DID A STUDY AND YOU
  • 00:14:13.170 --> 00:14:15.120
  • KNOW WHAT THEY CAME BACK WITH?
  • 00:14:15.130 --> 00:14:16.260
  • THIS IS WHAT THE NAVY STUDY CONCLUDED: IF IT HAS
  • 00:14:16.270 --> 00:14:20.030
  • FINS AND SCALES IT'S PROBABLY SAFE TO EAT.
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:23.190
  • THEY COULD HAVE SAVED SO MUCH MONEY AND JUST READ
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:25.140
  • WHAT THE BIBLE SAID. (LAUGHTER) NOW YOU CAN
  • 00:14:25.150 --> 00:14:29.000
  • READ ON THERE IN LEVITICUS AND IT SAYS THERE IN
  • 00:14:29.010 --> 00:14:32.010
  • LEVITICUS 11, VERSE 10, "BUT ALL IN THE SEAS OR
  • 00:14:32.020 --> 00:14:35.150
  • IN THE RIVERS THAT DO NOT HAVE FINS AND SCALES," -
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:38.230
  • THAT MEANS RIVERS, SEAS, LAKES - ALL THE OTHER
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:40.220
  • WATER CREATURES - "THAT DO NOT HAVE FINS AND SCALES,
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:44.070
  • ALL THAT MOVE IN THE WATER OR ANY LIVING THING WHICH IS IN THE
  • 00:14:44.080 --> 00:14:47.060
  • WATER, THEY ARE AN ABOMINATION TO YOU."
  • 00:14:47.070 --> 00:14:50.190
  • WHY DOESN'T GOD WANT US TO EAT CERTAIN THINGS?
  • 00:14:50.200 --> 00:14:53.150
  • THESE ANIMALS - CRABS, LOBSTERS - YOU KNOW HOW
  • 00:14:53.160 --> 00:14:56.040
  • THEY CATCH THEM? THEY'RE SCAVENGERS.
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:58.140
  • THEY PUT SOME DECOMPOSING FISH HEAD IN A TRAP AND
  • 00:14:58.150 --> 00:15:01.190
  • THEY ARE MADE BY GOD TO BE THE GARBAGE CANS IN THE
  • 00:15:01.200 --> 00:15:04.150
  • WORLD TO CLEAN THE ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:06.070
  • THEY EAT ALL THE TOXINS. CLAMS - THEY SOAK
  • 00:15:06.080 --> 00:15:09.010
  • UP ALL THE TOXINS. WE HAVE ONE PRESIDENT
  • 00:15:09.020 --> 00:15:10.190
  • THAT DIED FROM EATING CONTAMINATED OYSTERS.
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:13.140
  • AND THESE THINGS ARE JUST - THEY'RE NOT HEALTHY.
  • 00:15:13.150 --> 00:15:18.090
  • SHRIMP - WHEN THEY SERVE SHRIMP, THEY SERVE IT
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:20.050
  • COMPLETE WITH THE INTESTINES - ARE STILL -
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:23.040
  • THE DIGESTIVE TRACK IS STILL IN THERE.
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.160
  • THAT'S NOT GOD'S - THAT STUFF'S NOT GOOD FOR YOU.
  • 00:15:24.170 --> 00:15:26.250
  • THERE'S - DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE BAY WHERE
  • 00:15:26.260 --> 00:15:29.060
  • YOU GET THE OYSTERS AND THE CLAMS ARE ALL THE TOXINS.
  • 00:15:29.070 --> 00:15:31.200
  • THEY'RE - THESE ANIMALS ARE MADE BY GOD TO FILTER
  • 00:15:31.210 --> 00:15:33.230
  • AND HELP CLEAN THE ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:35.090
  • SAME THING WITH CERTAIN BIRDS THAT ARE CONSIDERED
  • 00:15:35.100 --> 00:15:38.090
  • UNCLEAN. WHICH BIRDS ARE UNCLEAN?
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:41.170
  • IN LEVITICUS 11, VERSES 15 AND 16, IT SAYS, "EVERY
  • 00:15:41.180 --> 00:15:46.290
  • RAVEN AFTER ITS KIND, AND THE OWL, AND THE
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:53.000
  • NIGHTHAWK, AND THE CUCKOW...AFTER ITS
  • 00:15:53.010 --> 00:15:56.170
  • KIND," - THE RAPTORS AND THE CARNIVOROUS BIRDS WERE
  • 00:15:56.180 --> 00:16:00.030
  • CONSIDERED UNCLEAN. THE CLEAN BIRDS - THERE'S
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:03.050
  • NOT A RULE LIKE FINS AND SCALES - BUT THE CLEAN
  • 00:16:03.060 --> 00:16:06.130
  • BIRDS WERE THE FORAGING BIRDS - TURKEY, THE
  • 00:16:06.140 --> 00:16:09.250
  • CHICKENS, PHEASANT, SO FORTH - THEY WOULD BE CLEAN.
  • 00:16:09.260 --> 00:16:12.240
  • ARE THE LAWS ABOUT CLEAN AND UNCLEAN ANIMALS PART
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:15.110
  • OF MOSES' CEREMONIAL LAW WHICH ENDED AT THE CROSS?
  • 00:16:15.120 --> 00:16:19.200
  • THIS IS WHAT SOME PEOPLE THINK.
  • 00:16:19.210 --> 00:16:21.090
  • GENESIS 7, VERSES 1 AND 2 - SOME PEOPLE SAY, 'OH,
  • 00:16:21.100 --> 00:16:25.180
  • THOSE ARE LAWS JUST FOR THE JEWS' - THOSE CLEAN
  • 00:16:25.190 --> 00:16:28.230
  • AND UNCLEAN LAWS. WAS NOAH JEWISH?
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:33.000
  • LET'S READ THIS TOGETHER: "...COME THOU AND ALL THY
  • 00:16:33.010 --> 00:16:36.170
  • HOUSE INTO THE ARK...OF EVERY CLEAN BEAST THOU
  • 00:16:36.180 --> 00:16:41.240
  • SHALL TAKE TO THEE BY SEVENS."
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:44.140
  • SO DOES GOD MAKE A DISTINCTION BETWEEN CLEAN
  • 00:16:44.150 --> 00:16:46.240
  • AND UNCLEAN ANIMALS EVEN BEFORE THERE WERE ANY JEWS?
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:51.180
  • QUIZ: HOW MANY OF YOU ARE RELATED TO NOAH?
  • 00:16:51.190 --> 00:16:56.040
  • -ALL OF US. -THAT'S RIGHT!
  • 00:16:56.050 --> 00:16:58.170
  • EVERYBODY HERE - AND SO IF GOD MADE IT - THIS IS A TEST.
  • 00:16:58.180 --> 00:17:02.150
  • I DON'T KNOW IF ANY OF YOU MANAGED - YOUR ANCESTORS
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:04.050
  • SURVIVED THE FLOOD, BESIDES NOAH - EVERYBODY
  • 00:17:04.060 --> 00:17:07.100
  • HERE IS RELATED TO NOAH. GOD MADE A DISTINCTION -
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:09.270
  • THESE ARE THINGS THAT WERE FOR MANKIND - YOU CAN SEE
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:12.010
  • IT GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO GENESIS.
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:13.270
  • SHOULD A CHRISTIAN, BIBLICALLY, USE ALCOHOLIC
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:17.010
  • BEVERAGES? SOME CHURCHES WOULD SAY,
  • 00:17:17.020 --> 00:17:19.220
  • 'SURE, WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT? JESUS DRANK WINE.'
  • 00:17:19.230 --> 00:17:21.210
  • IT WAS NOT ALCOHOLIC, IT WAS GRAPE JUICE.
  • 00:17:21.220 --> 00:17:24.280
  • THE BIBLE SAYS - PROVERBS 21 - AND THE BIBLE DOESN'T
  • 00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:27.080
  • CONTRADICT ITSELF - "WINE IS A MOCKER, STRONG DRINK
  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:32.110
  • IS RAGING" - IT'S TALKING ABOUT FERMENTED WINE HERE
  • 00:17:32.120 --> 00:17:35.130
  • - "AND WHOEVER IS DECEIVED THEREBY IS NOT WISE."
  • 00:17:35.140 --> 00:17:39.030
  • THE BIBLE SAYS 'GIVE WINE TO HIM THAT IS READY TO
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:41.230
  • PERISH.' THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT NOAH DRANK WINE
  • 00:17:41.240 --> 00:17:45.140
  • AND HE STUMBLED AROUND NAKED AND SOMETHING
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:47.270
  • EMBARRASSING HAPPENED. LOT'S DAUGHTERS GAVE THEIR
  • 00:17:47.280 --> 00:17:51.130
  • FATHER WINE AND HE SLEPT WITH HIS DAUGHTERS.
  • 00:17:51.140 --> 00:17:55.090
  • GOOD THINGS DO NOT HAPPEN WHEN PEOPLE DRINK ALCOHOL.
  • 00:17:55.100 --> 00:17:58.230
  • CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT UNDERWRITE THAT.
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:18:00.250
  • AND YOU MIGHT BE SAYING, 'PASTOR DOUG, I JUST HAVE,
  • 00:18:00.260 --> 00:18:02.080
  • YOU KNOW, A LITTLE BIT OF WINE ONCE A WEEK.
  • 00:18:02.090 --> 00:18:05.030
  • JUST A LITTLE - I HAVE NO PROBLEM - I DON'T HAVE A
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:06.230
  • DRINKING PROBLEM.' THAT MAY BE, BUT ARE YOU AWARE
  • 00:18:06.240 --> 00:18:10.160
  • THAT ONE OUT OF SEVEN PEOPLE DOES HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM?
  • 00:18:10.170 --> 00:18:13.050
  • ALCOHOL IS ADDICTIVE. DO WE ALL KNOW THAT?
  • 00:18:13.060 --> 00:18:16.280
  • SOME PEOPLE - IT JUST WRECKS THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:18:16.290 --> 00:18:19.020
  • IT WRECKS THEIR MARRIAGES.
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:20.150
  • IT WRECKS THEIR CAREERS. IT WRECKS THEIR HEALTH.
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:23.140
  • THERE WILL BE PEOPLE IN HEAVEN THAT SMOKED.
  • 00:18:23.150 --> 00:18:26.280
  • I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR. THERE ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:18:26.290 --> 00:18:28.130
  • PEOPLE THAT DRANK ALCOHOL - MARTIN LUTHER DRANK BEER.
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:30.250
  • I DON'T THINK THEY UNDERSTOOD BACK THEN WHAT
  • 00:18:30.260 --> 00:18:32.210
  • WE UNDERSTAND. THE MAN WHO WROTE AMAZING
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:34.120
  • GRACE, JOHN NEWTON, HE SMOKED. DO YOU KNOW, BACK WHEN HE
  • 00:18:34.130 --> 00:18:37.260
  • SMOKED, DOCTORS ACTUALLY PRESCRIBED TOBACCO FOR ASTHMA.
  • 00:18:37.270 --> 00:18:42.080
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT? HOW MANY OF YOU KNEW THAT?
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:45.140
  • YEAH, BUT WE KNOW BETTER NOW.
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:49.240
  • CIGARETTES ARE THE NUMBER TWO LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:53.240
  • - PREVENTABLE CAUSE OF DEATH - IN NORTH AMERICA -
  • 00:18:53.250 --> 00:18:56.130
  • TOBACCO. IT MAKES YOU PREMATURELY AGE.
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:59.190
  • IT'LL MAKE YOUR VOICE RASPY AND MAKES YOUR
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:03.090
  • CLOTHES SMELL FUNNY. TOBACCO - THERE'S
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:06.140
  • NOTHING GOOD ABOUT IT. THERE'S NO NUTRITIONAL
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:08.040
  • VALUE AND IT COSTS A FORTUNE.
  • 00:19:08.050 --> 00:19:10.080
  • WHEN I WAS A KID IT WAS TWENTY-FIVE CENTS A PACK.
  • 00:19:10.090 --> 00:19:12.220
  • MAN, I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT PEOPLE PAY FOR A PACK OF
  • 00:19:12.230 --> 00:19:14.180
  • CIGARETTES NOW. YOU CAN BUY A NEW CAR AFTER
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:17.070
  • QUITTING FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. (LAUGHTER) ARE THE BIBLE
  • 00:19:17.080 --> 00:19:20.190
  • HEALTH PRINCIPLES STILL PRACTICAL TODAY?
  • 00:19:20.200 --> 00:19:23.160
  • NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH A LIST OF SEVERAL
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:24.260
  • BIBLE PRINCIPLES AND THESE ARE HEALTH PRINCIPLES AND
  • 00:19:24.270 --> 00:19:28.220
  • YOU ARE GOING TO BE SURPRISED HOW MUCH OF THE
  • 00:19:28.230 --> 00:19:30.120
  • WORLD, NOW, IS REALIZING THESE ARE BASIC HEALTH
  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:33.000
  • LAWS - THEY'RE ALL IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:19:33.010 --> 00:19:35.210
  • FIRST OF ALL, QUARANTINE PROCEDURES CONTROL
  • 00:19:35.220 --> 00:19:39.060
  • CONTAGIOUS DISEASE. WITH THIS EBOLA
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:43.110
  • DISCUSSION, WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:19:43.120 --> 00:19:45.290
  • LOOK AT THE INCREDIBLE LENGTHS THEY'RE GOING TO
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:48.280
  • TO MAINTAIN A STERILE ENVIRONMENT AND QUARANTINE
  • 00:19:48.290 --> 00:19:51.100
  • PROCEDURES. IN THE BIBLE, GOD GAVE THAT.
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:54.100
  • HE SAID IF SOMEONE IS UNCLEAN, THEY NEED TO
  • 00:19:54.110 --> 00:19:56.000
  • WASH, THEY NEED TO STAY OUTSIDE THE CAMP, THEY'RE
  • 00:19:56.010 --> 00:19:57.110
  • CONTAGIOUS - THERE'S ALL KINDS OF LAWS ABOUT CONTAGION.
  • 00:19:57.120 --> 00:20:00.150
  • THEY UNDERSTOOD THIS IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:20:00.160 --> 00:20:02.200
  • NUMBER TWO - BASIC THING, AGAIN, CONNECTED WITH
  • 00:20:02.210 --> 00:20:05.090
  • EBOLA - IF THESE THINGS WERE BEING PRACTICED IN
  • 00:20:05.100 --> 00:20:08.080
  • SOME OF THE COUNTRIES - IT SAYS HUMAN BODY WASTE
  • 00:20:08.090 --> 00:20:11.260
  • SHOULD BE BURIED. NOW, I KNOW, IT MAY NOT BE
  • 00:20:11.270 --> 00:20:15.230
  • PLEASANT TO THINK ABOUT THAT, BUT IF YOU'VE
  • 00:20:15.240 --> 00:20:17.180
  • TRAVELED - MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD I GO TO, EVEN
  • 00:20:17.190 --> 00:20:20.290
  • IN BIG CITIES, THEY STILL DON'T HAVE REGULAR
  • 00:20:21.000 --> 00:20:23.210
  • SANITATION AND - I KNOW, IT WOULD SHOCK YOU.
  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:27.230
  • AND I WON'T NAME THOSE COUNTRIES BECAUSE I DON'T
  • 00:20:27.240 --> 00:20:29.110
  • WANT TO OFFEND ANYBODY NOW, BUT WAY BACK IN THE
  • 00:20:29.120 --> 00:20:31.200
  • BIBLE, EVEN GOING THROUGH THE DESERT, GOD GAVE THEM
  • 00:20:31.210 --> 00:20:33.180
  • CERTAIN RULES ABOUT THAT. C - WASHING - REGULAR
  • 00:20:33.190 --> 00:20:38.140
  • WASHING OF THE BODY AND CLOTHING CONTROLS GERMS.
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:41.250
  • YOU KNOW, THAT'S IN THE BIBLE?
  • 00:20:41.260 --> 00:20:43.180
  • THEY HAD TO REGULARLY WASH.
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:45.020
  • EVEN AS THEY WENT THROUGH THE WILDERNESS, GOD ALWAYS
  • 00:20:45.030 --> 00:20:47.000
  • MADE SURE THEY HAD A WATER SUPPLY.
  • 00:20:47.010 --> 00:20:49.130
  • MOSES WOULD STRIKE THE ROCK AND WATER WOULD RUN
  • 00:20:49.140 --> 00:20:51.210
  • OUT AND THIS RIVER SEEMED TO BE REPRODUCED AND
  • 00:20:51.220 --> 00:20:54.010
  • FOLLOWED THEM WHEREVER THEY WENT IN THEIR JOURNEYS
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.180
  • SO THEY COULD NOT ONLY DRINK, BUT SO THEY COULD WASH.
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:59.180
  • AND FREQUENTLY IT TALKED ABOUT WASHING.
  • 00:20:59.190 --> 00:21:01.190
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT A LOT OF DISEASE COULD ALSO
  • 00:21:01.200 --> 00:21:04.090
  • BE PREVENTED, AS WE KNOW TODAY, BY MORAL LIVING.
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:08.210
  • IT PREVENTS SEXUAL DISEASES. LEVITICUS 18; PROVERBS 5,
  • 00:21:08.220 --> 00:21:13.160
  • VERSES 1 THROUGH 12 AND MANY OTHER VERSES.
  • 00:21:13.170 --> 00:21:16.050
  • THERE ARE A NUMBER OF SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:18.180
  • DISEASES AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE RECEIVED FATAL
  • 00:21:18.190 --> 00:21:22.100
  • INFECTIONS BECAUSE OF IMMORAL LIFESTYLE.
  • 00:21:22.110 --> 00:21:26.080
  • ANSWER E - ANOTHER BIBLE PRINCIPLE ABOUT HEALTH -
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:29.150
  • ANIMAL FAT SHOULD NOT BE EATEN - NOT ONLY FAT, BUT
  • 00:21:29.160 --> 00:21:33.130
  • BLOOD. YOU KNOW, DISEASE CAN BE
  • 00:21:33.140 --> 00:21:35.210
  • TRANSFERRED FROM ANIMAL TO ANIMAL.
  • 00:21:35.220 --> 00:21:38.070
  • YOU DON'T CATCH A DISEASE FROM A PLANT. -
  • 00:21:38.080 --> 00:21:39.270
  • YOU MIGHT GET POISON IVY - BUT DISEASE CAN BE TRANSFERRED
  • 00:21:39.280 --> 00:21:42.200
  • FROM ANIMAL TO ANIMAL AND HE SAYS WE SHOULD NOT EAT BLOOD.
  • 00:21:42.210 --> 00:21:47.040
  • BY THE WAY, NEW TESTAMENT/OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:21:47.050 --> 00:21:49.060
  • BOTH SAY BLOOD IS FORBIDDEN.
  • 00:21:49.070 --> 00:21:50.270
  • ACTS 15 - READ IT YOURSELF - NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.
  • 00:21:50.280 --> 00:21:53.260
  • SOME PEOPLE SAY, 'THESE ARE OLD TESTAMENT LAWS.'
  • 00:21:53.270 --> 00:21:55.210
  • IT'S REPEATED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:21:55.220 --> 00:21:57.170
  • F - ANOTHER PRINCIPLE - HATRED AND BITTERNESS IS
  • 00:21:57.180 --> 00:22:01.070
  • DETRIMENTAL TO ONE'S HEALTH.
  • 00:22:01.080 --> 00:22:03.070
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE SICK, NOT JUST BECAUSE OF WHAT
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:05.020
  • THEY'RE EATING, BUT BECAUSE OF WHAT'S EATING THEM.
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:08.040
  • AND HAVING ANGER AND BITTERNESS IN YOUR HEART -
  • 00:22:08.050 --> 00:22:12.000
  • STRESS - IT REALLY DOES CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS.
  • 00:22:12.010 --> 00:22:15.170
  • G - PROVERBS TALKS ABOUT OVEREATING IS BAD FOR YOUR
  • 00:22:15.180 --> 00:22:18.290
  • HEALTH. (LAUGHTER) IT'S ONE THING
  • 00:22:19.000 --> 00:22:21.010
  • TO EAT HONEY, IT SAYS DON'T EAT TOO MUCH.
  • 00:22:21.020 --> 00:22:23.280
  • AND YOU CAN EVEN EAT TOO MUCH OF GOOD THINGS.
  • 00:22:23.290 --> 00:22:26.280
  • AND SUMO WRESTLERS USUALLY DON'T DIE OF OLD AGE
  • 00:22:26.290 --> 00:22:31.150
  • BECAUSE IT'S JUST, OBVIOUSLY, NOT GOOD.
  • 00:22:31.160 --> 00:22:35.090
  • H - OUR BODIES NEED PROPER REST.
  • 00:22:35.100 --> 00:22:38.130
  • PSALMS 127, VERSE 2 AND MARK 6:31 - THE SABBATH IS
  • 00:22:38.140 --> 00:22:43.100
  • ALL ABOUT THAT - GETTING PLENTY OF SLEEP.
  • 00:22:43.110 --> 00:22:46.150
  • ANSWER I - THE IMPORTANCE OF WORK.
  • 00:22:46.160 --> 00:22:50.290
  • NOT ONLY DOES IT SAY REST THE SEVENTH DAY, IT SAYS
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:52.250
  • SIX DAYS THOU SHALT WHAT? WORK. ANSWER J - A POSITIVE
  • 00:22:52.260 --> 00:22:58.120
  • ATTITUDE IS GOOD MEDICINE. THE LORD WANTS US TO HAVE
  • 00:22:58.130 --> 00:23:02.090
  • GOOD ATTI - A HAPPY HEART IS GOOD LIKE A MEDICINE.
  • 00:23:02.100 --> 00:23:04.230
  • AND EVEN WHEN I TEACH SOME OF THESE DIFFICULT TRUTHS,
  • 00:23:04.240 --> 00:23:07.070
  • YOU KNOW, I THINK WE SOMETIMES NEED TO BE ABLE
  • 00:23:07.080 --> 00:23:09.050
  • TO SMILE BECAUSE LIFE IS TOUGH ENOUGH.
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:12.180
  • IS GOD CONCERNED WITH OUR PHYSICAL HEALTH?
  • 00:23:12.190 --> 00:23:15.190
  • 'I THINK GOD'S ONLY CONCERNED WITH SPIRITUAL
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:17.010
  • THINGS.' IS THAT WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES?
  • 00:23:17.020 --> 00:23:19.130
  • MATTHEW 4:23, "AND JESUS WENT ABOUT ALL GALILEE,
  • 00:23:19.140 --> 00:23:24.160
  • TEACHING IN THEIR SYNAGOGUES, AND PREACHING
  • 00:23:24.170 --> 00:23:26.250
  • THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM, AND" - DOING WHAT?
  • 00:23:26.260 --> 00:23:29.230
  • -HEALING. -"HEALING ALL MANNER OF
  • 00:23:29.240 --> 00:23:31.240
  • SICKNESS AND ALL MANNER OF DISEASE AMONG THE PEOPLE."
  • 00:23:31.250 --> 00:23:35.290
  • DOES THE LORD CARE ABOUT OUR HEALTH?
  • 00:23:36.000 --> 00:23:38.150
  • -YES. -YES. AND HE, MANY TIMES, WILL
  • 00:23:38.160 --> 00:23:41.020
  • MIRACULOUSLY HEAL PEOPLE. SOMETIMES SICKNESS COMES
  • 00:23:41.030 --> 00:23:44.090
  • JUST BECAUSE OF GENETICS, SOMETIMES SICKNESS COMES
  • 00:23:44.100 --> 00:23:46.120
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE EXPOSED TO SOMEONE ELSE WHO IS SICK,
  • 00:23:46.130 --> 00:23:48.260
  • THERE MIGHT BE SOME ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM BUT,
  • 00:23:48.270 --> 00:23:51.010
  • YOU KNOW, THE MAJORITY OF SICKNESS IN OUR COUNTRY IS
  • 00:23:51.020 --> 00:23:54.160
  • SELF-INDUCED BECAUSE OF LIFESTYLE.
  • 00:23:54.170 --> 00:23:58.120
  • YOU KNOW WHY THERE'S A HEALTH-CARE CRISIS AND THE
  • 00:23:58.130 --> 00:24:01.160
  • MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS ARE BANKRUPT AND SO EXPENSIVE?
  • 00:24:01.170 --> 00:24:05.090
  • BECAUSE OF OUR LIFESTYLES, IN PARTICULAR IN THE
  • 00:24:05.100 --> 00:24:07.200
  • WESTERN CULTURES, BECAUSE THE RICH LIFE, THE LACK OF
  • 00:24:07.210 --> 00:24:10.260
  • EXERCISE, AND THE ABUNDANCE, PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:24:10.270 --> 00:24:13.050
  • BRINGING ON DISEASES EARLY IN LIFE AND THEN THEY ARE
  • 00:24:13.060 --> 00:24:15.280
  • STRUGGLING WITH THESE DISEASES FOR MANY YEARS
  • 00:24:15.290 --> 00:24:18.100
  • AND IT'S CAUSING CATASTROPHIC EXPENSES.
  • 00:24:18.110 --> 00:24:21.290
  • WE'D BE ABLE TO PUT A LOT OF HOSPITALS OUT OF
  • 00:24:22.000 --> 00:24:23.220
  • BUSINESS IF WE'D JUST FOLLOW THE BIBLE.
  • 00:24:23.230 --> 00:24:26.110
  • 3 JOHN 2, "BELOVED, I WISH ABOVE ALL THINGS" - GOD
  • 00:24:26.120 --> 00:24:31.070
  • SAYS, 'ABOVE ALL THINGS.' - "THAT YOU MAY" - WHAT?
  • 00:24:31.080 --> 00:24:34.210
  • - "PROSPER AND BE IN HEALTH," - HOW? "JUST AS YOUR
  • 00:24:34.220 --> 00:24:39.040
  • SOUL PROSPERS." SO WHAT KIND OF LEVEL
  • 00:24:39.050 --> 00:24:41.190
  • DOES HE PUT IT ON? 'I WANT HEALTH - PHYSICAL
  • 00:24:41.200 --> 00:24:43.290
  • PROSPERITY - AND I WANT SPIRITUAL PROSPERITY.
  • 00:24:44.000 --> 00:24:46.090
  • NOW, IF YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE, PICK THE SPIRITUAL
  • 00:24:46.100 --> 00:24:49.010
  • BECAUSE WHAT PROFIT IS IT IF YOU HAVE PERFECT HEALTH
  • 00:24:49.020 --> 00:24:50.280
  • AND YOU'RE A TERRIBLE SINNER?
  • 00:24:50.290 --> 00:24:52.140
  • IT'S NOT GOING TO SAVE YOU FOR ETERNITY.
  • 00:24:52.150 --> 00:24:54.030
  • BUT GOD SAYS, 'YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'VE TAKEN CARE OF
  • 00:24:54.040 --> 00:24:55.280
  • THE SPIRIT, MAKE SURE AND TAKE CARE OF THE BODY
  • 00:24:55.290 --> 00:24:57.280
  • BECAUSE HAVING YOUR MIND CLEAR AND YOUR BODY
  • 00:24:57.290 --> 00:25:01.090
  • HEALTHY MAKES IT EASIER TO SERVE GOD -
  • 00:25:01.100 --> 00:25:03.280
  • TO RESIST THE DEVIL AND DO GOD'S WILL.
  • 00:25:03.290 --> 00:25:06.070
  • ANOTHER ONE - JOHN 10:10 - IT SAYS, "...I HAVE COME
  • 00:25:06.080 --> 00:25:10.130
  • THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, AND" - AND WHAT KIND OF
  • 00:25:10.140 --> 00:25:12.160
  • LIFE DOES HE WANT US TO HAVE? - "...MORE ABUNDANTLY."
  • 00:25:12.170 --> 00:25:15.270
  • YOU SEE THE FELLOW IN THAT PICTURE?
  • 00:25:15.280 --> 00:25:17.180
  • HIS NAME WAS BANANA GEORGE.
  • 00:25:17.190 --> 00:25:19.130
  • HE IS SKIING BAREFOOT - I'VE DONE THAT.
  • 00:25:19.140 --> 00:25:22.130
  • THAT IS VERY, VERY HARD FOR A YOUNG MAN TO DO - HE
  • 00:25:22.140 --> 00:25:25.190
  • IS, I THINK, 80 YEARS OLD IN THIS PICTURE.
  • 00:25:25.200 --> 00:25:27.220
  • HE CONTINUED SKIING UNTIL 92 - DIDN'T EVEN START
  • 00:25:27.230 --> 00:25:30.220
  • SKIING UNTIL HE WAS IN HIS FORTIES - HE LOVED BANANAS
  • 00:25:30.230 --> 00:25:34.010
  • AND THAT'S WHY HE ALWAYS WORE YELLOW.
  • 00:25:34.020 --> 00:25:35.290
  • WHY IS OUR HEALTH SO IMPORTANT TO GOD?
  • 00:25:36.000 --> 00:25:38.260
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 6:19, "...YOUR BODY" - AND VERSE
  • 00:25:38.270 --> 00:25:43.140
  • 20 - "IS THE" - WHAT? -THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:25:43.150 --> 00:25:45.270
  • -"THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT...THEREFORE GLORIFY
  • 00:25:45.280 --> 00:25:50.090
  • GOD IN YOUR BODY AND IN YOUR SPIRIT, WHICH ARE GOD'S."
  • 00:25:50.100 --> 00:25:54.200
  • AGAIN, ROMANS 12:1, "...PRESENT YOUR BODY A
  • 00:25:54.210 --> 00:25:58.160
  • LIVING SACRIFICE" - HOW? - "HOLY AND ACCEPTABLE
  • 00:25:58.170 --> 00:26:02.230
  • TO GOD, WHICH IS YOUR REASONABLE SERVICE."
  • 00:26:02.240 --> 00:26:06.050
  • GOD SAYS, 'LOOK, YOU'VE BEEN - YOU'RE MADE IN
  • 00:26:06.060 --> 00:26:08.100
  • GOD'S IMAGE, YOU BELONG TO GOD, YOU ARE TO PRESENT,
  • 00:26:08.110 --> 00:26:12.150
  • NOT JUST YOUR SPIRIT, BUT PRESENT YOUR BODY - YOU
  • 00:26:12.160 --> 00:26:15.230
  • KNOW, WE WORSHIP GOD, NOT JUST WITH OUR MINDS, WE
