    Psalms 89, 34: My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

    For those who obey the dietary laws. Guess what? You are keeping God's commandments. John 14:15, "If you love Me, keep my commandments." Wasn't God telling Moses and Aaron to tell the children of Israel what foods to eat and not to eat. If God is speaking, then how has these commandments suddenly change in 2017. Isn't God the same yesterday, today, and forever. This is not rocket science, people!
  • Alex
    Except the ceremonial laws that were pointing to Jesus (col 2:14-17), counsels on clean/unclean foods in Lev 11 are still binding. God will not alter anything that proceeds out of His lips (Psalms 89:34, Heb 13:8).
  • Motdaugrnds
    This chapter is difficult for me to understand. As I read it, I think much of what is sold in the grocery stores and at farmers ' markets is unclean, i.e. rabbit, pig, chicken, shrimp are a few. Amy I wrong about the chicken? Verse 21...Do chickens have feet above their feet?
  • Bertha Marsh for verse 3
    I think that the reason that we have so many illnesses is that we do not eat what then LORD say ' that we should.
