“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) From the very creation of the earth, we are told of our Creator, that He is God. The emphatic testimony of the Scriptures of this God is that He “is love” (1 John 4:16) The motivation for creating all things was love. It was for us.
When God created man, He first created a garden which man could cultivate. He had His creatures in mind when He created the trees and herbs of the field. “And God said ‘Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself upon the earth…” (Gen. 1:1) Man’s diet was made for him several days before he himself was created. “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” (Gen. 1:29) “And God saw every thing that He had made, and behold, it was very good.” Here we see everything was “very good” (Gen. 1:31). A perfect God creates a perfect world, with perfect humanity, with a perfect diet, assuring perfect health. Perfect health has always been God’s plan for us. “I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.” (3 John 1:2) Since God’s will
is perfect prospering, even in health, what happened?
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Gen. 2:16-17)
God commanded not to eat what was not created for food, yet the devil comes in, seeking to undo God’s perfect will. The devil said to Eve, “…hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it…lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened…” (Gen. 3:1-4) God said there was something man should not eat, or it would bring death. The devil urges you to see what is not actually food as being “good for food”, but in the beginning, it was not so. Untold sorrow has resulted from disease and death because they saw things unfit for human consumption as “good for food”, which only the day of reckoning will declare. Many have no more knowledge of God’s will in health, but to wholly disregard His perfect diet He gave for man’s blessing. “What? know ye not that your body is
the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Cor. 6:19-20) How can we glorify God in our bodies, which are His temple? “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Cor. 10:31)
God promise? “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” (Exodus 15:26)
God’s will is true restoration. Speaking of Jesus, the Bible tells us “the heaven must receive [Him] until the times of restitution of all things.” (Acts 3:21) That word for restitution has it’s root word sourced in the Greek Lexicon, being defined as “to reconstitute (in health, home or organization): – restore (again)” The restitution of all things is not only restoration of doctrine, and spiritual understanding, but of ALL THINGS. God is restoring even the perfect diet & health to man, so that man’s health will be optimal for translation. (2 Cor. 7:1) “Having therefore these promises, “dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (2 cor. 7:1) Amen.
