Unclean Meat: Can Christians Eat Pork?


Could it be that Satan has a buffet? What if this buffet was open on street corners,
shopping malls, and in homes all across the world!? What if millions of Christians were unknowingly
eating at this buffet, destroying their bodies, and violating God’s laws of health? In this video, we will discover what the Bible
says about unclean meat, alcohol, and more! Hi, this is Dustin with Hope Through Prophecy! If you’d like to better understand Bible
Prophecy, please subscribe and hit the bell icon below! God loves us so much that He has revealed
the best foods to eat, and the foods to avoid. He wants us to be healthy and happy – with
a clear mind to serve Him well. Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all
things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. And we can be sure that what we eat and drink
does matter to God. Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever
you do, do all to the glory of God. We are wholistic being, what we eat affects
our body and mind, which affects our relationship with God. And God is our Creator. And who better than our Creator to tell us
how to care for our bodies. Fortunately, our Creator has given us an owners
manual – the Holy Bible. Today, we will refer to that owner’s manual
and discover God’s nutrition plan designed to care for our bodies and give us optimal
health! But first, we will visit the competition – Babylon’s
buffet – a way of eating and living designed to destroy your body and mind, and even rob
you of eternal life. We will consider the different sections of
it’s menu – The entrees, the side dishes, the beverages,
and the extras. I want to first say this. I know this message may be a bombshell – a
surprise – to many of you, and I know that diet can a be a sensitive topic. I also know many sincere, loving Christians
who are not yet practicing what we will now see from the Bible, and I don’t judge their
hearts. God will only hold us responsible for what
we know, or had the chance to know. So let us now go by the Bible, with the goal
to glorify God in how we eat and live. In Leviticus Chapter 11, God reveals to us
which animals are acceptable to eat, and which are not. First, God reveals the land animals that are
forbidden. Among others, this list includes
the camel, the rabbit, and brace yourselves for this one friend – the swine. Yes, the pig, and all associated pork products,
including sausage, pepperoni, bacon, and ham, are forbidden by God. Was this just an arbitrary decision by God? Is He trying to keep good food from us? Not at all. God created our bodies, and He knows what
is best for them. You see, God created the pig to be a scavenger,
almost like nature’s garbage can. A pig will eat almost anything, including
feces and even it’s own young. So, pigs serve a very important purpose in
this world, but they are not meant to be eaten. According to the Bible, the only land animals
that can be eaten are those that have a split hoof AND chew the cud. This includes animals such as the cow, goat,
deer, and lamb. Consider this short clip from pastor Joel
Ostein. I do not endorse Joel, or all of his doctrines,
but his words in this clip are Biblical, science-based, and true. Ham, bacon, pepperoni – these are some of
the things the Scripture says we should not eat. As Joel mentioned, we should avoid these foods
for our health sakes, and to honor God. The ushers have already locked the doors. And of course, this has to do with anything
that comes from a pig, a hog, a swine. And I know some of you love pork chops; you
love ham and cheese sandwiches – I grew up on all that. I love bacon, but, for our health sake, we
have to be willing to make some changes. God knows what’s best for us, and back in
the Bible days, the pig was considered unclean – it was never considered a source of food. One of the main reasons why is that a pig
will eat anything. A pig eats waste and garbage. This is kind of gross, but a pig will eat
it’s own dead child. A pig will eat other sick and infected animals
– their scavengers. What’s interesting is that the pig has one
of the quickest and poorest digestive systems of any animal – it takes only 4 hours, and
that’s not good. Because the digestive system is so quick,
and so poor, many times the toxins from the food are not properly eliminated and they
are stored in the pig’s fat. That means that pig can eat all kind of filth
and garbage – it can eat other infection – 4 hours later it’s sent to the slaughter
and butchered, and in a few days, it’s on your plate at home. You’re having ribs – the problem is the
toxins were not properly eliminated from the pig. On the other hand, the animals that God says
are OK for us to eat, like cow, lamb, deer, Buffalo – these animals eat fresh, clean vegetation. Their digestive system is much more sophisticated. In fact, a cow basically has 3 stomachs. And that fresh, clean vegetation is processed
through a digestive system that takes 24 hours. Think about it – 24 hours vs. 4 hours. Would you rather eat an animal that eats waste
and filth, or an animal that eats fresh, clean vegetation? An animal that poorly processes the food,
and stores the toxins in it’s fat, or an animal that properly eliminates the toxins
from it’s body? I made changes not only for my health’s
sake. I made changes
to honor God. When it comes to marine animals, God directs
that only animals with both fins and scales can be eaten – this would include fish such
as salmon and tuna. Creatures such as catfish, lobster, and shrimp,
are forbidden, and even called an abomination. Pastor Ostein speaks briefly about these creatures
as well: Something else the Bible tells us we should
stay away from is any kind of shell fish – shrimp, clams, oysters, lobsters. Again.. Would y’all quit being so rebellious today! I’m ruining all y’alls lunch. These are animals that are scavengers. Do you know that they live at the bottom of
the water and they eat waste – they eat the excrement of other animals? And I love fried shrimp, but when I think
about what that shrimp eats for dinner, it’s just not that appetizing anymore. As Joel mentioned, these animals are scavengers
– they help keep the ocean clean, but were not designed to be eaten. In regards to birds, Leviticus 11 goes on
to prohibit eagles, vultures, and several others, while birds such chicken and turkey
are not forbidden. Some may say “But Dustin, those are old-testament
laws just for the Jews – we don’t have to keep those anymore!”. Let’s talk about this. For one, Leviticus 11 is not the first place
that the Bible makes the distinction between clean and unclean meats. In fact, Noah was directed to take 7 of each
clean animal, and 2 of each unclean onto the ark, long before the Jewish nation even existed:
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. You see, the original diet given to human
beings in the garden of Eden was plant-based. It was not until after the flood that God
allowed humans to eat meat, but He specified which were clean, and which were unclean. God gave these laws to humans because He knows
what is best for us and our bodies. We have the same human bodies as the people
in the Old Testament, and these unclean meats affect our bodies in the same way. Also, breaking these health laws is a violation
of the 6th commandment “Thou shalt not kill”. When we place harmful items in our body, we
are slowly killing ourselves. Not surprisingly, modern science confirms
the negative affect that pork, for example, has on the body:
In a 2013 investigation, consumer reports tested 198 samples of pork products nationwide
and found that nearly 70% were contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria. And the world health organization has even
classified processed meats – including bacon, salami, ham, and hotdogs, as a group 1 carcinogen
– which is an item that causes cancer. Some might say, “but I’ve been eating
these things all my life, and I feel just fine!”. The Bible warns:
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Diseases, ailments, and early deaths caused
by consuming harmful items can take years to set in, and many of these lifestyle diseases
can even be transferred down to our innocent offspring. The good news is, if we change our diet, our
body’s cells can miraculously heal and repair themselves. But the sooner we make these changes, the
better. Did Christians in the New Testament also avoid
eating unclean meats? Peter received a vision with all kinds of
creatures being lowered on a blanket, and he heard a voice that said “kill, and eat”. Carefully notice Peter’s response:
But Peter said, “Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or
unclean.” You see, Peter, living after the time of Jesus’
resurrection, understood the Bible teaching that we are not to eat meats that are unclean. So, why was Peter told to “kill and eat”? We see the answer in Acts 10:28:
God has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean. The dream was not about eating meat. The purpose of this dream was to show Peter
that the gentiles, or non-Jews, should not be considered unclean. Some sincere Christians quote 1 Timothy 4:3-4
For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving. Is this verse really saying that we can eat
anything? Skunks, rats, swine, or anything we want? Not at all. In Paul’s day, it was common for meat to
be sacrificed to idols. Referring to this, another verse says:
Eat whatever is sold in the meat market, asking no questions for conscience’ sake. In other words, the meat did not become evil
even if it was sacrificed to idols. So, when 1 Timothy 4:3 mentions that every
creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if received with thanksgiving,
it is referring to meat that has been sacrificed to idols, not to unclean meats that God has
already forbidden. The Bible does not contradict itself. Romans 14 is a similar passage also referring
to meat sacrificed to idols. If there were any doubts remaining on whether
eating pork and other unclean meats is a sin, this next verse makes it crystal clear. Referring to the future second coming of Jesus,
Isaiah says: Behold, the Lord will come with fire … and
by His sword the Lord will judge all flesh; and the slain of the Lord shall be many. Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves
… eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be consumed together”
While this verse may be strong, we must be clear on how serious this issue is to God. Those who continue to eat the foods that God
has declared to be unclean will be destroyed at His second coming. So, what else is being served at Babylon’s
buffet? We will now consider the side dishes – fat
and blood: This shall be a perpetual statute throughout
your generations in all your dwellings: you shall eat neither fat nor blood. The Bible is clear that the fat and blood of animals is strictly forbidden. The Bible reveals to us that
…the life of the flesh is in the blood… And science confirms that impurities and diseases
of animals can be found in their fat and blood. There is a reason that God forbids these items
– to protect us. Babylon’s Buffet also has a beverage menu. The Bible describes these harmful drinks:
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise. Notice that the Bible tells us that whoever
is led astray by alcohol is not wise. According to Medical News Today, researchers
from San Diego State University reveal that “their findings suggest that even a single
alcoholic drink can impair our ability to make decisions, though we’re not aware of
it.” So even a single drink causes our minds to
be impaired and led astray. Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaints? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? Those who linger long at the wine, Those who
go in search of mixed wine. Do not look on the wine when it is red, When
it sparkles in the cup, When it swirls around smoothly; At the last it bites like a serpent,
And stings like a viper. The Bible does not paint a positive picture
of alcohol. It does not take long to look at our society
and see the disastrous effects that alcohol has had on families and communities. It is even more important for us, as Christians
living in the last days, to completely avoid alcohol. For Jesus
…washed us from our sins in His own blood…and has made us kings and priests to His God and
Father… Abd the Bible says
It is not for kings, O Lemuel, It is not for kings to drink wine, Nor for princes intoxicating
drink; lest they drink and forget the law, And pervert the justice of all the afflicted. Friends, let us purify our lives from anything
that would get between us and God. Before we visit God’s Diner, let us consider
just a few more items served at Babylon’s buffet. We need to talk briefly about nicotine and
caffeine. Although legal, both of these items are drugs
that stimulate the body’s central nervous system. Both are addictive and harmful to the body. The Bible warns us about placing anything
in our body that would defile it. Do you not know that you are the temple of
God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will
destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple
you are. Caffeine, often found in coffee, soda, and
energy drinks, along with nicotine, often found in cigarettes and other tobacco products,
should be completely avoided. Instead of these habits, we should make sure
to drink plenty of pure, clean water. Let us honor God with the body that He has
lent to us. We have learned about Babylon’s Buffet,
and how Satan tries to destroy our body and mind, and separate us from God through diet. These items on Babylon’s buffet are forbidden
by God. But friends, whenever God helps us take something
away, He always replaces it with something better. Our loving Creator knows exactly what is best
for our health and happiness. Let us now take a visit to God’s Diner. What diet did God originally create for human
beings? And God said, “See, I have given you every
herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit
yields seed; to you it shall be for food.” Yes, in the original Eden paradise that God
created for mankind, he provided a plant-based diet. God knows that this is the ideal diet for
the human race. In fact, modern science confirms this fact. An article entitled “Vegans are the Healthiest
and May Outlive Us All, Says Study” on MensHealth.com, discusses a recent study by the Journal of
Nutrition showing that vegans have higher levels of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids,
and anti-inflammatory properties in their bodies. The importance of a plant-based diet, made
up of fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts, is even greater in today’s world. Hormones, drugs, and unsanitary conditions
plague the modern meat industry, laying the foundation for cancer and early death. A 15 year-long study by Oxford university
tracked 60,000 British men and women, 2,246 of them being vegan. The study found that cancer incidence was
19% less in vegans compared to the other diets. God’s way is the best way. “But I won’t get enough protein from that
diet!” some might say. This is a common misconception. In 2013, a study compared the nutrient intake
of over 71,000 vegetarians, non-vegetarians, and vegans. This study, published by the Journal of the
Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, was the largest study to date of it’s kind. It found, that on average, vegans and vegetarians
actually get 70% more protein than they need on a daily basis! But perhaps the most compelling study of all
is found right in the Bible! Did you know that Daniel Chapter 1 has been
recognized as the world’s oldest health study?! After being taken captive to Babylon, Daniel
and the rest of the prisoners were weak and gaunt. King Nebuchadnezzar ordered that all of these
men be given a rich diet full of meat and wine. Daniel requested that he and friends be given
a simple, plant-based diet for a span of 10 days, and then be compared with the other
captives. Daniel’s request was granted, and after
10 days, the Bible records that Daniel and his friends who partook of a plant-based diet
were brought before the king. What were the results of this study? Daniel and his friends were found to be healthy,
strong, and 10x wiser than the greatest wiseman and astrologers in all of Babylon! God’s way is always the best way. While the Bible does not require a plant-based
diet, it is the ideal. My appeal to you today is to at least give
up the things that God forbids, including unclean meats, animal blood and fat, and drugs
such as caffeine and nicotine. However, I do encourage you to consider adopting
a plant-based diet, which is God’s ideal for us. After all, in Heaven, we will all have a meat-free
diet! For their will be no more death in Heaven
– They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My
holy mountain… This all may be new, or even overwhelming
to some of you. But please remember that God gives us this
information because He knows what is best for us, and desires for us to be happy, healthy,
and to have eternal life. Fortunately, God does not ask us to make these
changes on our own. If we did, I would still be eating the same
things I always ate, because I’ll be honest – I liked these foods, I enjoyed them, and
I couldn’t have changed in my own strength. But the good news is, God promises to give
us the power to obey all He asks of us, if we just make the decision to obey Him:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. And if we decide to follow God’s laws, He
will not only help us to obey, but will even teach to us to WANT to obey!
for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Yes, as you continue to eat a healthier diet,
we will actually learn to love and appreciate these new foods. God will change our heart, if we surrender
it to Him! Plus our sleep will be sounder, our minds
will be sharper and clearer, and we will live longer, more productive lives for God. We only have one life to live friend – let’s
make it count! God is calling us, He is calling you, to glorify
Him in how you eat, drink, and live. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies
himself, just as He is pure. If our hope is in Jesus, if we love Him, we
will purify ourselves of anything in our diet that is not good and pleasing in God’s eyes. Dear friend, if would like to make a decision
to follow God’s health laws, with His help, and glorify God with how you eat and drink,
please write in the comment section below Lord, I choose to glorify you with my diet. Praise God! I will put resources in the description below
that will help you to have a balanced diet and lifestyle that glorify God. And make sure that you watch the playlist

    That’s a start but what about glorifying God by his commandments, holy day, feast and the most important-the Sabbath! Just read the book of Leviticus , these are the books of law! But Christ did drink wine! It is commanded on Passover! Joel Olstein is not a minister of god because he is a Sunday keeper not a sabbath keeper! On the Passover its is commandment to drink wine, but you might ask what if you are an alcoholic? Where is your faith?!

    Chicken and turkey were in the wild. They were domesticated. The turkey might be a hybrid animal. The turkey might be in the same family as the turkey vulture , the vulture and other similar birds. They have red heads. Google the swamp hen and the jungle fowl.

  3. True Love

    A Vegan Diet is the ideal diet ?? WHAT UNBIBLICAL BS !!!! Veganism and Vegetarianism are both totally against Holy Bible scripture:

    Jesus not only ate the normal Jewish diet including fish and other animal flesh such as lamb and chicken, but Jesus also chose Fishermen to be his apostles, 

    AND even after Jesus was crucified and resurrected the first thing he ate or else one of the first things he ate was FISH and HONEY – both verboten on the Vegan Diet, 

    AND he also helped his disciples catch a large catch of fish as well as prepared some cooked fish for them to eat,

    BESIDE the fact that 1 Timothy 4 tells us that persons would arise who would advocate abstaining from meat and that those persons would be misleading spirits teaching doctrines of devils "and demand abstinence from foods which God has created for use by and the thanksgiving of those who believe and know the truth. For all things created by God (for food) are good, and none of them are to be rejected." 

    AND we not only see GOD tell Noah in Genesis 9 that both animal flesh and vegetation would be meat or food for humankind, 

    BUT we also see GOD direct the Priests of The Temple to kill and cook and eat the flesh of kosher animals after offering them to GOD on The Temple altar and their cooking flesh is called a sweet savor to the Lord GOD !!

    ARE BOTH JESUS AND GOD WRONG, THAT THEY ATE AND OR ADVOCATED THE EATING OF ANIMAL FLESH IN ADDITION TO VEGETATION ?? OF COURSE NOT !!

    AND in addition there is a scripture that tells humankind to consume honey (Proverbs 24:13),

    AND the land of Canaan that GOD promised to the children of Israel is described over and over again as "a land that flows with milk and honey" for them to be able to consume these and to the full (Deuteronomy 31:20),

    AND David and his servants consumed honey and butter and cheese (2 Samuel 17:29),

    AND Abraham served the three messengers of GOD that were sent to him and then to Lot a meal containing milk and butter and calve meat and they ate the meal (Genesis 18:8),

    AND Isaiah prophesied that Jesus would "eat butter and honey, that he may know how to refuse the evil and choose the good" (Isaiah 7:15),

    AND Jesus said Baptist John was the greatest prophet ever (Matthew 11:11), and Baptist John consumed locusts (proteinaceous bugs) and honey (Matthew 3:4).

    How can you say this? if there is NO scripture that covers coffee or soda in Greek Hebrew or English CONTEXT. I understand pork and alcohol.
    Soda dose not cause cancer! Tooth decay YES!
    Obey Torah but stop adding things that God never said? That was Pharases in Jesus time? They added if you did not wash your hands you sin?

  5. Frank From Upstate NY

    Well,….no more shrimp and ham sandwiches for me. Luckily, I don't drink enough for this to be any type of suffering. No more ham, bacon, etc. No problem.

    Caffeine though,…I drink it as a nighttime truck driver. Without it, I would die, or even kill other people whilst trying to do my 12 hour shifts. I have no choice.

  6. Cyndi Rothrock

    The swine eats it's young when their a runt or disfigured.or not breed right. ( unlikely to reach adult)they also breed as fast as RABBIT! And have to be breed VERY CAREFUL TO ADVOID PROBLEM! They CAN'T have caffeine( coffee or tea leaf ) and won't eat vinger!

  7. danwithjesus

    At half of the video i was about to comment why is not Daniel mentioned..then there it was…Daniel shows how important is to keep God's law…even to such a simple thing as food…simple because we don't think much on what we eat…You should also mentioned that in heaven all nations will eat of the living tree that bears 12 fruits(1 for every month)…to some people this change is harder to take because you have to substitute something in return…and you will be judged for this diet because is not in line with the world today…also you should mentioned that pigs/swine…were used in the temple…for idols that is…I believe that what God said is still viable today/modern day…Peace
    Luke 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
    Matthew 5:18 *For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
    *
    19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

  10. Warrior Of God

    I gave up pork about 18 months ago. It was hard at first but it gets easier with the strength of Christ. It’s been a little over a year since I’ve given up anything without scales or fins. That one wasn’t easy until I realize what the purpose of a bottom feeder is. The one thing I struggled with was the nicotine, being that I live in a divided home and my husband smokes so it had been hard, until I heard this video. I hadn’t been smoking much, being that I had been trying to quit but after watching this video, it’s been made clear that, I can not touch another cigarette, ever. They are a disgusting habit. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

  11. Varga Kristóf

    Im really happy because i found your channel . I think God want to help through your videos because im living hard days and i struggle with sin, but the love of the Lord is eternal and he loves us and forgives us if we are open hearted.I learned from your videos a lot. Thank you!

  12. sheldon

    This is the biggest lie and not a prophecy from God because God cannot go contrary to his word_1 Corinthians 10:25_So you may eat any meat that is sold in the marketplace without raising questions of conscience. So this man using the Old testament says it all, those laws were given to the Children of Isreal not us Gentiles, Believers!

  13. Billy Amerson

    Leviticus is in the Old Testament. We’re in the New Testament and in Acts 10 verses 10 through 15 Peter was hungry and fell into a trance and saw heaven open and descending upon heaven came four footed beasts, fowl of the air and creeping things and a voice came unto Peter saying “Rise, kill and eat” Peter said “Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean” and the voice spake unto him “what God hath cleansed, that call not thou common”
    I like the video but you’re talking from a testament that we’re not under. You can eat what God has made, for what he has made is cleansed.

  14. SAMUEL MENSAH

    I don’t know if it’s possible for you but can you make a video about what the Bible says about cursing and filthy language. Thank you and I pray that God keeps you as he keeps all those who love him. Have a great day, and thank you for all you have done.

  15. Defender Of Truth

    Just an honest question here… You showed the picture of a tuna which actually has no scales. As juveniles, tuna do have them, but lose them as adults. If it has no scales as an adult, does that mean they are still clean? Anyone else questioning tuna?

  16. ODD-one out n about

    Swine fever is now affecting pigs,don't eat them ,no one loved bacon butties (bacon sandwiches ) any more than me but we must not eat it again

  17. mary conte

    The Lord showed me how filthy the "Pig" is so now I stopped eating pork. When I saw the Pig in the spiritual realm I was sickened. I no longer eat pork. I use to love bacon. But, now I just can't eat it in good conscious. Thanks for sharing!!! We are responsible to eat healthy and live a Holy and consecrated life in all we do. To the Glory of God. I stopped eating shrimp years ago and I never liked lobster. God is so good.

    Controlling the Appetites and Passions

    “Abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul,” is the language of the apostle Peter (1 Peter 2:11). Many regard this text as a warning against licentiousness only, but it has a broader meaning. It forbids every injurious gratification of appetite or passion. Let none who profess godliness regard with indifference the health of the body, and flatter themselves that intemperance is no sin, and will not affect their spirituality. A close sympathy exists between the physical and the moral nature. Any habit which does not promote health degrades the higher and nobler faculties. Wrong habits of eating and drinking lead to errors in thought and action. Indulgence of appetite strengthens the animal propensities, giving them the ascendancy over the mental and spiritual powers. SL 25.1

    Dustin, Romans 14 has a few interesting verses that i would love your opinion on.

    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭14:2‬ ‭KJV
    “For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.”

    Romans‬ ‭14:6‬ ‭KJV
    “He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.”
    ‭‭‬‬
    Romans‬ ‭14:14‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    “I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.”
    ‭‭
    Romans‬ ‭14:20‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    “For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.”
    ‭‭

  20. Samuel Maingi

    Thanks Dustin for your teachings. I really love them. But kindly I beg to differ with you slightly (And I stand to be corrected). I don't think that these foods are unclean to eat, but I will agree that they are unhealthy for consumption.
    Consider what Apostle Paul says in Romans 14:14-15 when he talks about law of liberty …Nothing is unclean by itself. But if the food you take will make your brother stumble, that you should avoid for love's sake. For the kingdom of God is not about eating and drinking.
    ………………………………………………………………..
    1Corinthians 10:25-33
    1 Corinthians 10 [NIV]

    [vs: 25] Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience,

    [vs: 26] for, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.”

    [vs: 27] If some unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience.

    [vs: 28] But if anyone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it, both for the sake of the man who told you and for conscience’ sake—

    [vs: 29] the other man’s conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my freedom be judged by another’s conscience?

    [vs: 30] If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for?

    [vs: 31] So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

    [vs: 32] Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God—

    [vs: 33] even as I try to please everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

    In this case, Apostle Paul clearly states that we should eat ANYTHING sold in the meat market. He goes ahead and quotes the verse that says "for the Earth is Lord's and everything in it" ….but again…he says that our eating should not be a reason for our brother to stumble. What does he mean by that? He means that even with the freedom we have in our eating, we should not forget that we still have to show love in our eating. We should eat anything provided that it is in agreement with the conscience of those around us to prevent them from falling. Consider verse 27…he says that you eat ANYTHING offered on the table when invited. Now, look at it from this angle…what if the so called 'unclean' food is to be brought to the table…do you disobey God (by eating it if so) for the sake of the one who's invited you for a meal…NOT AT ALL!
    ………………………………………………………………..
    In a nutshell, according to these scriptures, there's nothing that is 'unclean' to eat. Jesus emphasizes that uncleanliness only comes from the heart in Mark 7:18-23.
    HOWEVER, If your brother believes something is unclean to eat, you should never eat at their presence for the sake of their conscience and as a sign of your love for them. Your eating liberty is simply determined by your brothers conscience and your own faith. These are just a few of the many scriptures on the same.

    While I agree that God warns of food and drink, etc that are not good to the body, and it says that if a person defiles the temple of the Holy Spirit, He will destroy, He also says, Justin, that defilement comes from within. Defilement is described here as a heart issue. For what is in the heart the mouth speaks. The heart is deceitfully wicked among all things. Our Lord is way more concerned with this.

  22. Critic121 Kibitzer

    Wine is not wrong to drink … but the abuse of it’s consumption is wrong … it’s called drunkenness.

    If drunkenness is wrong … how about gluttony??? … are we to stop eating?

    The scriptures says drink wine to be merry … even the Messiah changed water into wine … and yes, it was the alcoholic type … not fruit juice like many would like you to believe …

  23. Critic121 Kibitzer

    I too want to go back to the rightful faith and practices of obedience …
    I believe in the Sabbath … and also the dietary instructions.

    Need to overcome the old habits …
    but in my country these food are cheaper … pork and catfish … and it taste good.

    Most of us don’t even know how to observe the Sabbath … thanks to men’s adding into it, their rituals believes and practices… like the Jews did …

    Should we eat what they eat during Sabbath … which speaks about the Messiah?

    He already came … and accomplished the task given to him … We are now in a new chapter … renewing ourselves in remembrance of him … which he instructed us to do.

  24. JesusisComing

    I truly want to follow the Lord, but im confused. Becuase Jesus said that all foods are purified already.

    So He said to them, “Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?”

    Mark 7:18‭-‬19 NKJV

    So is it ok?

  25. Equip

    The controlling power of appetite will prove the ruin of thousands, when, if they had conquered on this point, they would have had moral power to gain the Victory over every other temptation of Satan.

    * But those who are slaves to appetite "will fail" in perfecting Christian character. *

    The continual transgression of man for six thousand years has brought sickness, pain, and death as its fruits. And as we near the close of time, Satan’s temptation to indulge appetite will be more powerful and more difficult to overcome.

    I really need some advice from someone. I was talking with my sister who has a 6 year old daughter. She came in and I asked about how she was doing in school and such. She told me that she had learned about Jesus and the cross. ( Her teacher is a christian ) And then my sister, who I just learned is not longer a christian, told her daughter that it was not true and she should not belive it just because someone had told her. Then the girl said: " I belive it." I smiled at her and was so happy to hear her response, but the way her mother said what she said, and confirmed that she did not belive really crushed me. I dont know what to do. ( I know this was a long post but I just had to share it and ask for advice ) God bless you

  28. Susan H.

    I was very surprised when you mentioned WINE. Was it not Jesus who Blessed and refilled the barrels of wine at a friends wedding? Is it not WINE that is Blessed and used for Communion? I believe we can drink wine. However, we are only to drink it in small quantities.

  29. Moises Sanchez

    Dude, your videos are AWESOMES and very inspired; filled with sound and true doctrine of our LORD. In the time 15:27 the Bible reference should be Proverbs 31:4-5. This channel for sure to be shared with others. And for the maker of it, REMEMBER… 1 Corinthians 15:58 ESV
    Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

  30. Lazy Jhun

    It's been a year trying not to eat any pork related products, but sometimes I accidentally eat small portions without knowing it as pork, but recently I ate clam specifically mussels, God forgive me.

    thank you Dustin for teaching me verses from bible, I know now what to avoid to eat.

  32. Aaron C

    I believe in the nutrition advice, alcohol and nicotine….but don't bend scripture to validate your message. “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭15:9-11‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    This is not a salvation issue.

  33. Aaron C

    Vegan…what a joke.

    “Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”
    ‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭4:3-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  34. Aaron C

    Food for thought…

    “For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

    Let not then your good be evil spoken of: For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

    For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭14:2-3, 16-17, 20‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  35. Aaron C

    Wow now you are putting limits on Prayer and what GodJesus' Word says.
    Then you site a false prophet like Joel Osteen and tell me I'm bending GodJesuss like you did when you said it's a salvation issue.
    Yes diet is important but reread the GodJesus
    Word that I quoted. All I have you is GodJesus' Word buddy.
    Please brother.

  36. Becky Evans

    there is nothing we can't eat, for if we give thanksgiving unto GOD, for these Blessings, we are sanctified by the CROSS. Timothy chp 4.

  37. Becky Evans

    … as soon as you say you are not going to do this or that, you just made yourself self righteous . saying what you do saves you. When saying that pork is a sin, you just passed judgment unto yourself. pigs in the Bible means you will eat anything that man gives you (word), and the only time GOD hears from you, is when you are in trouble. you never go to HIM, but stay at the fire with the enemies of GOD, like Peter. listening and denying our FATHER.

  38. Thato Mokotedi

    I'm just asking what about the Peter and the cloth covered over him with the vision.

    Edit: Explained thanks

    Great video…

    Last question
    Jesus had a little wine for the Lord's supper not grape juice.
    So when taking would it not be biblical to take it with wine

  39. Dennis Hagans

    1Ti 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
    1Ti 4:2  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
    1Ti 4:3  Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
    1Ti 4:4  For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
    1Ti 4:5  For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. 
    1Ti 4:6  If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
    1Ti 4:7  But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

    Act 11:5  I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:
    Act 11:6  Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
    Act 11:7  And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.
    Act 11:8  But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.
    Act 11:9  But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
    Act 11:10  And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.

    Col 2:14  Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
    Col 2:15  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
    Col 2:16  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    Col 2:17  Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
    Col 2:18  Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
    Col 2:19  And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
    Col 2:20  Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
    Col 2:21  (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
    Col 2:22  Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
    Col 2:23  Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

    we are no longer under those OT ordinances, That is why it is called the New Testament because the New Testament supersedes the Old Testament through Christ Jesus, if we were to live under a modified version of the Old Testament we would not have been given a completely New Testament.

    we are back to this time

    Gen 9:3  Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

    we have once again been given all things to eat, only those who are law-keepers like the cultic seventh day adventists demand such practices as Old Testament dietary law-keeping and make up all kinds of man-made reasoning (wives fables) as to why we can't eat what God has cleansed through Christ.

    we do not eat with the blood, I eat no rare steak period though that is how I once liked it, now all of my meats are cooked done so that there is no blood. that is what we are commanded to abstain from, not the meats but the blood of the meats.

    Act 15:19  Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: 
    Act 15:20  But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

    Act 15:29  That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.

    The reason for obtaining from blood is clear because of the Blood of the covenant we are sanctified with.

    Mat 26:28  For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

    Heb_10:29  Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

    Heb_13:20  Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

    Rev 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

    you can Believe what the Word of God literally says as it literally reads or put your faith and trust in men and their explanations and interpretations of God's Word that disagree with God's Word.

    This ought to be a red flag to anyone!!! "oh that does not mean what you think it means here let me explain what it really means" and they take what the Word of God plainly says and change it into a Lie.

    NO! The Word of God says what it means and means what it says.

    God's Word says it and that settles it.

    Your opinions, explanations, and interpretations are neither warranted or needed.

    God made His Word simple and clear enough that even poorly educated people could read and understand it.

  40. Michele Gerson

    When you mentioned the wine and picked only scriptures which you are happy sustain your lecture that it is forbidden by God, you are doing wrong to people who believe you. You do not expand in explaining that it is the abuse of wine which is mentioned in the Bible.
    Here are a few passages picked at random from the Old and New Testament, both of course the Word of God which you carefully do not want to mention, at the risk of failing to counteract the negative aspect of your message.

    NUMBERS 15:5 "You shall prepare wine for the drink offering…"
    GENESIS 27:28 "May God give you…. an abundance of grand and new wine"
    JOHN 2:1-11 "The mother of Jesus said : they have no wine". TO PROVE THAT THIS WAS FERMENTED WINE AND NOT UNFERMENTED GRAPES, THE WAITER AT THE WEDDING COMMENTS AND SAYS ""Every man serves the poorer wine at the end but you have kept the good wine until the end". This means that once people have drunk a lot of wine, as one does at weddings, the less good wine is served. It is known that our tastebuds are weaker after drinking too much and the guests would not know the difference between good or less good wine!
    This is further supported by ISAIAH 25:6 "The Lord will prepare a lavish banquet for all peoples on this mountain. A banquet of AGED WINE (aged wine is fermented and alcoholic), choice pieces with marrow and refined AGED WINE (twice).
    And there's more: JUDGES 9:12-13 "The vine said to them : ""Shall I leave my new wine which CHEERS GOD AND MEN?…""
    PSALM 104:14-15 "He causes the grass to grow for th cattle…. AND WINE WHICH MAKES MAN'S HEART GLAD….".

    You must not be radicalist in quoting only the pejorative verses on the effect of wine. Why don't you quote the Bible exactly and deduct that it is the abuse of wine which is not good.

    Paul recommends to Timothy to drink "A little wine" for his stomach, suggesting that wine, even in those days, is good for the stomach (red wine). And it is. In areas of France and Italy where people are known to drink wine every day with their food, there is LESS CANCER, LESS INFLAMMATION AND LESS HEART ATTACKS.
    This is the result of research, as you mention research for pork meat, there is also research for wine which concluded that it is good for the body, in moderation.
    PLEASE BE TRANSPARENT. Of course, you appear to be genuine and give a splendid lecture, quoting the Bible and not giving your opinion, but don't pick the worse and explain, as the Bible also does, that WINE IS GOOD, GOD LIKES WINE, THE SUPPER OF THE LAMB WILL HAVE A GOOD AGED WINE, and I don't think that there will be drunkards at the Lord's table!

  41. ramzy medina

    Please I would love an answer from you.
    Say I worship God on Saturday. And I acknowledge that it is the true sabbath day and keep it holy. With all love and respect for God who created everything and I have the seal of God . . . Yet there is nothing wrong with worshiping God on Sunday. So how can the mark of the beast be Sunday worship? Unless they are trying to force us to acknowledge Sunday as the sabbath?
    Please do you see what I’m getting at? Please I just want a clear understanding. Am I blind to something? Do you see where I’m coming from?

  42. Brother Michael

    I haven't eaten pork for 3 days since watching this video! It's so delicious, but you have turned me from pork!!! God bless you and your sermons. Was not easy starting this path, but it is possible.

  43. Bromeo Ramos

    Please pray for me. I am having a Hard time obeying what the Holy Spirit keeps on reminding me when I am eating. I love pork so much, coke, etc.

    God please deliver me away from evil one and lead me not into temptation. Help me God that by the power of your Holy Spirit, I will be able to shy away from this unclean food. I love you Lord. Amen.

  44. The Bible DIET

    What an amazing video! You truly have a talent for making people pay attention to your message from the beginning to the end. Thank you for sharing these so valuable information. As we live in the last days we really need to pray that God will help us daily to be temperate in all things, and to dicern right from wrong.

    Isaiah Chapter ; 65 Verse : 3 – 5 : A People That provoketh me to anger continually to my face ; that sacrificeth In Gardens , And Burneth incense upon altars of brick ; 4 : Which remain among the graves , and lodge in the monuments , which eat swines flesh , and broth of abominable things is in their vessels ; 5 : Which say , Stand by thyself , come not near to me ;for I am holier than Thou , These Are a smoke in my nose , a Fire That burneth All The day ! Eating Swines Flesh is an offense to GOD ! You can make all the excuses you want but it will not change what offends GOD ! Just Like Changing The Sabbath To Sunday ! How is moving GODS Sabbath from Saturday To Sunday obeying the 4th Commandment ? Remember the Sabbath To Keep it Holy ! How is changing the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday Keeping The Sabbath Holy ? It’s not And Keeping The Sabbath On Sunday is an offense To GOD ! You Can Please Yourself ! Or You Can Obey The 4th Commandment And Please GOD ! JESUS CHANGED Not One Of The 10 Commandments And What What Offended GOD In the Old Testament Still Offends GOD In the New ! And JESUS Sacrifice On The Cross did not Change What Offends GOD ! JESUS Died A Terrible Miserable Death On The Cross as A Sacrifice For Mankind’s Sins ! Not to Change The Sabbath or What Offends GOD ! If I paid all your debts would it change what does and does not offends You ? NO !
