What’s An Aristaphagist!? Part 3: “What Did Jesus Eat?”

To read part 1, go here…What’s An Aristaphagist!?

.

.

.

.

“Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child,

and thy princes eat in the morning!

Blessed art thou, O land,

when thy King is the Son of Nobles,

and thy princes eat in due season,

for strength, and not for drunkenness!”

Ecclesiastes 10:16, 17

BIBLE HAS TEMPERANCE MESSAGE

.

The Bible does command us thus…“Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning! Blessed art thou, O land, when thy King is the Son of Nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!” Ecclesiastes 10:16, 17

.

Here is a call for temperance in diet. One group of princes “feast in the morning”, while another group eat “in due season, for strength”.

.

While this above passage has great spiritual implications, the physical earthly interpretation cannot be overlooked. After all, to “eat in due season, for strength and not for drunkenness” is the very essence of a healthy diet!

JESUS, THE WAY, TRUTH & LIFE

http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_65895/Edward-Armitage/Christ-Calling-the-Apostles-James-and-John--1869.

Now having said all this, it must not be overlooked that God has given us a great role-model for all matters of life: Jesus Christ.

.

And Jesus proclaims of Himself…“I am the way, the truth, and the life…” John 14:6

.

Yes, we are commanded to follow Jesus. He is “the Way!” And He is “the Life!”

JESUS: A LIFE OF HEALTH

.

And the closer we examine His lifestyle, it appears that Jesus was extremely healthy. This massive constellation is comprised of the various constellations on this websiteAfter all, his earlier life as a physical laborer (a carpenter), plus the countless miles he traveled on foot during His years of earthly ministry both indicate that Jesus was a very strong and healthy individual (and don’t forget that He spent his last years living totally outdoors on a 24/7 basis).

.

And yet, as we examine the very basic lifestyle of Jesus in the four Gospels, we see that Jesus ate fish. So obviously Jesus’ meat-eating didn’t seem to hamper His health in the least little bit!

“COME AND FOLLOW ME!”

Matthew 19:21

.

And so, while vegetarianism may indeed be one of the key fundamental ingredients to God’s original plan, we need never be afraid of imitating the lifestyle of Jesus: His active lifestyle of fasting, outdoor exercise combined with a simple diet of fish, fruit, whole-grain bread, water, etc., worked well for our divine Role-Model. And we would probably do well to also imitate Jesus in this area of our life, which would no doubt result in our greater degree of health.

THE WINTER CONSTELLATIONS

Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman….and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon….And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon….And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness….And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 21:1-3, 14, 15

.

This Woman of Revelation 12 is definitely fleeing to the mountains . As you can see in this sketch , The Dragon of Revelation 12 is spewing out his water of falsehoods: false gospels, false ideologies, various temptations, false brethren who will embrace her with the poisonous wine of the The Great Harlot of Babylon. These are what comprise this wave of water coming forth from the Dragon’s mouth. (see “Flood Waters of Satan”)
