Most people assume this principle only applies to animal food...

It also applies to plant food...

If a plant is sick(insect attack, weed attack) farmers spray the crop....thus violating the Bible law of health concerning the crop that is obviously dying of itself, because it is sick, unclean and unhealthy...

However living in a sick and dying world we have to do the best we can....

Here I am growing organic corn, Non GMO corn in my own soil, but notice the principles of plant health....

On my egg plants, some of them are sick....they are being eaten by insects....so when a plant is dying of itself, you have to make it healthy again, spraying the symptom is NOT making it healthy, wrong religion of approaching problems....

SO here after adding blood and bone fertilizer (organic of course) the plant leaves are thicker, healthy and coping with slight insect attack....

Living in the USA, I don't know if there are any organic fertilizers safe to use....cattle in Australia mostly eat grass only...hence safe to use for now....living in the USA mow your own grass and make that into compost yourself as fertilizer....

Please get our spiritual growth in Jesus right by getting our physical growth in Jesus right, you cannot have one without the other....

Shalom

Yes Amen Rob thank you. I did not give that a thought but I know you are right.

Thank you Elijah

As an agricultural teacher I would take students out into the field and ask them why the cabbage on the right was unattached by grubs and the one of the left was, both side by side in the field... I said to the students pretend your a grub, let's eat some leaves raw and see which is more palatable to us as grubs....

...so we ate pieces of the healthy cabbage and pieces of the unhealthy cabbage attacked by grubs, and found in our mouths differences in taste....

they said the healthy cabbage with no insect grub attack is more bitter, the grubby cabbage leaves are easier to eat....

Yes I said the cabbage with grubs in them are eating this cabbage because in Mother Nature there is a rule, that things that are sick must die, so only healthy things continue living.....Lions always pick off the weaker ones in attacking animals, insects do the same , they attack the weaker plants....

When a farmer sprays the sick cabbages with chemicals he is forcing the sick plants not to die but continue living until we humans eat a sick and dying plant in market shops.....Thus we are violating the Bible teaching regarding our health....

A better approach is to see the sick plant and help it get healthy again by fixing up its problems, not treating the disease symptoms....

Too much of our modern medicine is aimed at treating symptoms rather than making humans more healthy.

So when you grow your garden food, and the plant become sickly, find out what it needs to be healthy again.

Yes true Rob sadly in my situation I can only grow some vegetables in pots. I do have composting and Composting worms The worm juice is a marvelous tonic for the pot plants. One can see how the plants are responding to the worm juice. 

my lettuce gets a funeral every time i tear the poor thing up!

Yes gentlemen, I used to wonder why vegans got cancer, after all they are eating only healthy foods ? Well according to this principle they may in fact have been eating unclean (unhealthy) foods, which is what the label "tame" means in Scripture....

The biggest problems with SDA food intake is sugar, salt and fat.

There are over 15 types of sweet sugars in Mother Nature, but wee humans concentrate on glucose bonded into sucrose, called beets, corn syrup or sugar cane, highly toxic because in large amounts floods the brain with excess glucose, the only sugar the brain eats. So we get high on it...sounds like a cool feeling, but it really means the brain goes crazy....  as an aside cancer feed on sucrose / glucose....because no other body cell eats this type of sugar, it forbidden by all other cells, so this sugar is a wonderful method of feeding and growing cancers, that's why mankind refines and add this sugar to our diets....

Salt is an interesting thing...we assume plants only need some mineral salts, but really they need over 20 to 30 different forms of minerals to be healthy....how many forms do animals like humans need ? Just one, sodium ?

How silly is this reasoning ?

I suspect we also need over 20 to 30 different salt minerals too, but mankind has narrowed the salt intake down to mostly sodium, some potassium and some calcium...that's it....

Next time you are tempted to buy sodium salt, think what your doing....your overloading your cellular membranes with one salt over another....I do not generally eat sodium salt...all my salt comes from plants I eat....not of course this makes food tasteless and taste more bitter because most vegetables are bitter in taste,, but after a while your tongue is trained to be more sensitive to less salt and bitter and sweet ad sour, so sometimes I might add 1/4 a teaspoon of Himalayans  salt, which is a more natural salt, than just sodium alone....why do companies refine sea salt to more sodium ? Because they found too many salts in sodium salt make it taste less salty and more bitter so they say...go figure....

Fat is an interesting thing...science today has manufactured hydrogenated fat and it is so alien to living things that very few animals touch it, so it preserves things well....so if you place icing sugar wedding cake on a glass mantle piece it will stay fresh for over 30 years...nothing eats it, so does anything cooked in this oil...the oil is so cancerous, 10,000 times worse than sugar....Hebrew people never fried any food, it was always boiled, steamed or baked....never did they fry.... I do not fry foods ever and this reduces the nice array of my foods, sure it's a problem eating out, because everything man does to food is fried...because eating fat tastes nice....

So this is some of the reasons why in the 1950 to 1970's vegans died of cancer, today I could add other problems such as flavours, chemical sprays like round up and GMO.

Now every time we eat foods that are bad for us, that would have died of themselves, we violate the torah teachings of health, we destroy the  presence of the Holy Spirit living in us, our temple. Our physical impacts upon our spiritual....God cannot bless us if we eat unhealthy foods, and in fact is one of the main reason we are missing the power flow of Jesus in our lives today.

Da 1:8 ¶ But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself

What would have been in Daniel's time food and drink that defiles?

 

Da 1:12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.

Isa 28:24 Doth the plowman plow all day to sow?  “zara” vegetables & food from seeds….

And what is pulse and water that they drank ?

Thus when Daniel when into the world of Babylon to eat and drink, he was a vegan....think about this ye people who live in this Babylonian world, unless of course your some 3 billion people who never eat food from Babylon because they  grow your own in your soil or farm the wildernesses of GOD's free land....

Da 1:15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat.

What is it about Daniel’s diet that made them better than others on the King’s food ?

Da 1:17 ¶ As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

Notice you follow physical laws of nutrition and GOD bless you with spiritual blessings of wisdom and learning and visions and dreams…Wow….is this correct theology…? that the physical is first and the spiritual the blessing of following the physical ?

What do we think of the first chapter of Daniel ? A book of about believers going into Babylon at the end of time, they become vegetarians…is this correct in our understanding…..?

Is it also correct that if we follow physical laws of health, we are blessed with spiritual blessing from GOD.…

I trust we are eating well, drinking well, food and water pure and healthy.

There are many organic pesticides that can be used. 

Yes I am hearing you Daniel, though I don't use such things,, I try to make my plants healthy to begin with, and suffer a little insect attack....if I was setting up a structure for growing plants again, it would be an insect proof screen with a fibreglass roof....this removes wrong moisture humidity falling on fruit at wrong times, and insect pests eating plants not as healthy as they could be....in practical terms it is near impossible to grow foods like the garden of Eden had, but we try to achieve this as best as we can....

Now for those of us having not started yet, please ask the Lord to lead you into the country and start growing your own foods....its time to get out of the cities....(in fact I never lived in the cities from the beginning...it's a Bible theme, God's people never lived in cities to begin with....)

One of the things you learn from tomatoes, is if you don't pick the fruit, the plant begins to die and go to sleep....much like Christians do if you don't give away the fruits of the Holy Spirit formed in your life.

And the hotter drier the finish on the plant, the sweeter tastier the tomato will be....however trials and tribulations shorten the life of the tomato plant when this happens....remind me that humility does not occur by making fruits for yourself...that's called pride....humility is when the tomato plant is trained to be a servant to the Gardener who has joy when the fruit is found complete perfect and tasty....

Object lessons teach us much about our own lives in Jesus....

Shalom
