Bible Commentary for Leviticus 19:26

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 19:26

19:26 Any thing with the blood - Any flesh out of which the blood is poured. Neither shall ye use enchantments - It was unpardonable in them, to whom were committed the oracles of God, to ask counsel of the devil. And yet worse in Christians, to whom the son of God is manifested, to destroy the works of the devil. For Christians to have their nativities cast, or their fortunes told, or to use charms for the cure of diseases, is an intolerable affront to the Lord Jesus, a support of idolatry, and a reproach both to themselves, and to that worthy name by which they are called. Nor observe times - Superstitiously, esteeming some days lucky, others unlucky.

Discussion for Leviticus 19:26

  • Roberta MIKUS on Leviticus 19:26
    Dies the Bible day humans can eat meat?
  • Chris - in Reply on Leviticus 19:26
    Roberta, the Bible does permit us to eat meat, if we wish to. The first recorded permission to do so in found in Genesis 9:1-4. However, the caveat on that was that they were allowed to eat the flesh but not the blood. It isn't clear on that requirement - it may have later implications as the heathen used the blood of animals as part of their diet.
  • Mishael on 1 Timothy 43 - in Reply on Leviticus 19:26
    I you're not sure if Christians can EAT MEAT or GET MARRIED, then you will be much enlightened to read, 1 Timothy 4:3,

    Society will forbid people to marry, and commanding to abstain from eating meats.

    I highly recommend that you read all of 1 Timothy chapter 4, because it concerns what is happening in the last days, obviously. SOCIETY will try to dictate what people should do or not do.

    Insane stuff, like teach human anatomy and sexuality to 6 yr old small children!!! Teach homosexuality and lesbianism to public school children who have no clue what that is. Age appropriate, people!

    iF those children have attained accountability (knowing good versus evil) and they decide to jump on that bandwagon ? WHO is going to tell them that choices can send them to hell.

    Have a godly opinion about this and tell SOCIETY, through your American blood purchased right to VOTE .... Not My Child!!!

    City powers are not telling us what to do; it's the Antichrist crowd screaming for more blood. On the phone 24/7 logging in complaints. Get involved. Make your own calls.

    Selah. (Pause and think on these things)
