This week we are focused on God’s health plan for us. God has given the things that he provided for us to eat and the things that he doesn’t want us to eat. You can find the list in Leviticus 11 in your bible. One of the things that I find that people say a lot is that “oh but I love pork”or ” how can you not eat “pork”? Well folks, what I’m about to say may shock you terribly and it may also change your life. God is a God of love, let us never forget that but he also has provided us with rules and standards or rather a manual on how we should live our lives, which of course can be found in the bible. Therefore if you deliberately find ways or excuses to disobey God then at the end of time, he has no other choice but to destroy you. If you open up your bible to Isaiah 66:15-17, you will find what exactly will happen to you if you don’t give up the things that God said aren’t good for you.
It reads:15 See, the LORD is coming with fire,
and his chariots are like a whirlwind;
he will bring down his anger with fury,
and his rebuke with flames of fire.
16 For with fire and with his sword
the LORD will execute judgment upon all men,
and many will be those slain by the LORD.
17 “Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following the one in the midst of [a] those who eat the flesh of pigs and rats and other abominable things—they will meet their end together,” declares the LORD.

You see it says that those that are “swine’s flesh or pig flesh” or the “mouse” and other unclean animals are an abomination and will be destroyed by fire. Think of it like this Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat a specific fruit in the garden and by blatantly disobeying God, they brought in sin and death into the world. Now do you see where their actions led us? So now how about yours, where will it lead you?
