Food


   What is your favorite food? How does it taste? Many people like ice-cream or chocolate because it tastes sweety, I like it too. In addition to ice-cream and chocolate, there are many kinds of food are also yummy yummy. Different countries make different flavors of food taste sweet, salty, sour, bitter, spicy… My mouth waters just thinking about these delicious treats. Another delicious food is many different kinds of fresh fruits. It lets us feel happy, enjoy and satisfied. Imagine you are in desert and feel very hot and thirsty, if someone gives you a bottle of ice-water, how do you feel? You would say “Ahh.. it is really refreshing and quenches thirsty”.

Fresh Food
   Actually, foods are not only taste delicious, but also contain essential nutrition materials for our body. Absorb these nutrition could let us grow strong and maintain body health, we need these materials to build and repair our body cells. Some people say we should avoid absorb some nutrition or materials, otherwise you will have trouble of your health…


   For example, the ingredients of ice-cream or chocolate contain sugar, and many people say we should avoid absorb sugar from this food or that food, otherwise it will affect your health. Yes, excessive intake of sugar can cause disease. But that’s not mean sugar itself is an evil thing. Sugar (Glucose) is the main and important material to provide energy for our brain and our cells. It is the important and essential nutrition what we need, so sugar itself is by no means evil. I am not a nutrition expert and writing a book about nutrition.


   I want to ask a scientific question, why can we taste sweet, salty, sour, bitter, spicy, fresh… of food? Why do we have those feeling? Why do we feel enjoy, satisfy and happy of food? On the other hand, have you ever smell the spoiled food? Such as rotten eggs. Wow, you would say I wanna throw up. I agree, it smells really stinks. Why do we have this bad feeling?


   Another question, why we taste sugar would feel “sweet”, not “sour” “bitter” “spicy” or “rotten food” taste? On the other side, why we smell rotten egg would have bad feeling? Why not smell as flower fragrant? Maybe you would say, you are saying something disgusting. HaHa, I am sorry but I think that is truth. Actually, such as sugar and rotten egg these substances nature themselves are neutral, our feeling not represent its’ nature. Our feeling of these substances are relative and do not represent other living things’ feeling. For example, almost all living things like sugar, which can provide energy for them. But for bacteria is deadly, if their environment surrounded by sugar. We hate the rotten food, but for some living things are really love it, such as fly.


   So why do our feeling are so different? The answer is simple: our Creator God Jehovah wants to direct us to eat the things benefit our health, so he created this chemical reaction (good taste and favor feeling) in our brain. For example when we eat ice-cream, we feel sweet and this feeling make us happy. On the other hand, if we smell rotten food, it makes us discomfort and gagging, let alone eating it. Why we have this strong feeling? It tells us God want to direct us don’t eat these food, it make us sick or maybe die. This strong feeling like a signal etched into our brian and heart, reminding us shall not eat rotten food.


   We are not talking about the nutrition or the taste of food. I want to explain the grace of God given to us, that is sexual relationship. Sexual relationship itself is neutral, for human is like the good taste food, let people enjoy and satisfied. Why we feel enjoy and satisfied? Same as ice-cream, God creates the enjoy and satisfied chemical reaction feeling in our brain.


Maybe someone would say “it is an evil thing!”. Why people have this thought or concept? Just like eating ice-cream, would people think the sweet feeling is evils? Would people say “eating ice-cream” is evils? No, people would say ice-cream is good taste, they won’t feel evil.


   Same reason, God makes us feel happy and enjoy about sexual relationship and we should not think “sexual relationship” itself is evil. Just as same as enjoying the ice-cream, sexual relationship itself has no evil, it is good. But don’t a lot of scriptures describing sexual relationships say that’s evil?


Let’s see the beginning in Eden, Genesis 2:25 says “And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed”. When Jehovah God created Adam and Eve, they were both naked and not ashamed. What does it mean? It means God give them good feeling and the righteous mind, no evil mind and bad feeling about naked(sex). Just like we see the naked animals, our mind won’t have any evil or bad feeling about them.


   But when Serpent deceived Eve to eat the fruit of knowledge of good and evil, Genesis 3:6 say Eve “…saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, …she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.”. Then what happened?


Genesis 3:7 “Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths”. Before and after they ate the fruit, they were still naked nothing changed, but the change was their mind. Evil mind(sin) came up and they had evil thought, specially about the “Sex” concept. And this improper concept(sin) only occurred on humans but not animals.


   Every things created by God is good including “sexual relationship”, so “sexual relationship” itself is absolutely not equal to Evil, non relative with it. How do we think about sexual relationships itself? Although sexual relationships itself is neutral, but it has different outcomes depends on different creatures. We consider sexual relationship of human. Sexual relationship has good and evil outcome/effect of human, like fruit has also both fresh and rotten for human. Just like a fresh fruit have good taste and good for health, but the rotten fruit is bad would make people sick. How to define what is “fresh fruit” and what is “rotten fruit” of sexual relationship? Marital sexual relationship is like the fresh fruit and sexual immorality is same as rotten fruit. Why can we say that ? Because Jesus said,


   Matthew 19:4,5 “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, 5 and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” So God created “sexual relationships” for husband and wife is good, is the “fresh fruit”, good for both, it lets them “health and strong”. Then what is the “rotten fruit”?


   Jesus at verse 9 said “I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery”. So all sexual relationships other than husband and wife that are the “rotten fruit”(sexual immorality). Apostle Paul said “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral,…nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality…will inherit the kingdom of God.”–1Corinthians 6:9,10


   What happen if you eat the “fresh fruit”(symbolic sexual relationship of husband and wife)? You (both husband and wife) will be happy, your family will be strong and grow big, you will get the health and strong baby. Husband, wife, sons, daughters whole family will have a warm and love, stable, strong, happiness and happy… home. If you teach your sons and daughters eat “fresh fruit”, your family will grow bigger and bigger, stronger and stronger.


Do you know what happen if people eating the “rotten fruit”? He(she) will “sick”, “diarrhea”, heart broken, family will unstable, weak and unhappy, just same as someone will be sick if he eat the “real” rotten food. Sexual relationship is related to life, God creates “sexual relationship”- it is “life”, so God wants us to respect life with serious attitude, please read the another article “Good and Evil – Life” for more about it.


   Unlike the real fresh food and rotten food, people can see and smell the difference of them, for God give us the signal in our brain. The chemical reaction will warn us when we see and smell it, it makes us have bad feeling and guides us not to eat the rotten food but fresh food. But our mind can think freely, no physical rule to guide us and direct us what is good and what is evil. Moreover the whole world is affected by Devil who deceives people to eat “rotten food”(sexual immorality). Then is there any can help us?


   Yes, God’s commandments are the guides to direct us, just like God said “…neither shall you touch it”, “shall not eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. But Satan deceived Eve and said “…your eyes will be opened”, then Eve saw that the tree and “delight to her eyes”, she think this fruit is “good for food”… then she ate it. What does Bible say about Satan?


   Rev. 12:9 “And the great dragon… who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world.”. How does Satan deceive the whole world? Rev. 17:2,4 says “with (The Great Prostitute-the great Babylon) whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk…The woman was… holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality”. Just same as Satan deceived Eve at the beginning, after that the “improper mind” of sex was occurred. Bible tells us he deceives the whole world, and he mainly use is the “sexual immorality”.


Revelation 18:3,4 says “

For all nations have drunk
    the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality,
and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,
    and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”

Then I heard another voice from heaven saying,

“Come out of her, my people,
    lest you take part in her sins,
lest you share in her plagues;”


God’s people, how can we come out of her? We must obey God’s commandment “you shall not commit adultery”, not only forbit the “sexual immorality”, and also need to remove “sexual immorality” from our heart, our soul and our mind. However we are sinners, just same as Balaam, maybe we same as him whom tried every method/ways to do what he wants, even Jehovah God stop him to do that, even his donkey stopped him by avoid angel’s killing, but he still wanted to do what he wants. What did this teach us?


Jeremiah 17:9 says

“The heart is deceitful above all things,
    and desperately sick;
    who can understand it?”


We are sinners and our heart are deceitful, want to do what we wants like sexual immorality even we know it is evil . Maybe we come up with many excuses to do that, but we know that same as someone eats rotten fruit, he(she) “must be” sick and suffering, although it may not happens immediately. Jeremiah 17:10 says


 “I YHWH search the heart
    and test the mind,
to give every man according to his ways,
    according to the fruit of his deeds.”


Maybe someone says I am homosexual people, it’s my innate nature, not my fault. Yes, sexual relationship is the normal behavior for we have sexual desire, but God condemns fornication, including extramarital sex, homosexuality, etc. But how comes God create sexual desire but not allow people to satisfy it? Why some people say their innate nature are homosexual? Surely it seems closely related to Satan.


And maybe someone says sexual desire is an innate instinct, just like the desire of food, which naturally occurs on adults, and also “sexual immorality” occurs in behavior of many animals in the nature world.Why human cannot doing like this?


Yes, many animals do not have “sexual immorality” concept, and maybe they have sexual relationship as much as they can before they die, then this can make it’s offspring much more. This is created by Jehovah God and is very important for the continuation of its’ species. Then why not human can do it the same?


Please think about it, if human live on earth for decades and then die, maybe it is not a big big problem although it’s really a problem. But but if human can live forever, yes forever, what will happen? Can you imagine what would happen? Please imagine, A can has sexual relationship with B,C…unlimit…, his offspring comes from B,C… unlimit…, and maybe their sexual relations are crossover each others also, what would happen? Extremely confusion, discord, strife, broken…. Can they build a family? Will they happiness? The answer is very clear.


1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace”. Ephesians 3:14,15 “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named”. Family is like a tree, sexual relationship limited is protecting the tree otherwise the tree will be become confusion, broken and then died. If we obey God’s commandment, our tree and family will be biger and biger, stronger and stronger.


Who are the first family? Who the father is? Yes, He is YHWH God our Father and our Creator, he wants his family not confusion but peace, and we are part of His big family. That’s why He forbits sexual immorality, He won’t give the grace of eternal life to those who commit adultery.


On the other hand, he prohibit us commit sexual immorality, what does it tell us? It tell us He does not want us lost His grace-eternal life but is very willing to give it to us. And also he love and respect the life(the individual of us), he loves us and wants us to have a happy life and a happiness family. Thanks our Father and He is the most good God. Amen.


So if human has eternal life, does the “sexual immorality” is needed to make sure the continuation of human’s species just same as animals? No need absolutely! “Sexual immorality” not only has no any help or effect on the sustainability of human existence, but also will destroy human beings. That’s why God forbit it, God is good, will He withhold the grace the good from us? Absolutely will not!


But if someone says he is homosexual or has strong sexual desire but can’t get marriage, what can they do? Leviticus 16:15 “If a man has an emission of semen, he shall bathe his whole body in water and be unclean until the evening.”. This give us the hint: if someone emission of semen, he should take a bathe and wash himself physically, and then he will be clean.


Also Mosaic Law stipulated that there should be fasting each year on the Day of Atonement, Leviticus 16:29-31 “29 And it shall be a statute to you forever that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict yourselves and shall do no work, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you. 30 For on this day shall atonement be made for you to cleanse you. You shall be clean before the Lord from all your sins. 31 It is a Sabbath of solemn rest to you, and you shall afflict yourselves; it is a statute forever”.


“Afflict yourselves” general means fasting. Although someone say they are innate nature love same-sex couples, or with strong sexual desire but can’t get marriage, they can be ” fasting(sexual desire)” this period and wait for God’s salvation. God will solve it in new heaven and new earth.


Matthew 4:1-4

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written,

“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
    but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”


As people be fasting, they will have hunger, dizziness… uncomfortable feeling, but they won’t die but also good for health. The same, the “sexual fasting” also won’t let people die but good for “spiritual health”. “Sexual fasting” means “fasting” the sexual immorality, “the sexually immoral, adulterers, men who practice homosexuality”–1 Corinthians 6:9. If you have the above problem, you have choice, can choose “sexual fasting” to be a clean lifestyle now to please God and this also good for you, inherit precious wealth of the future — eternal life.


Actually, man and woman are two different creatures, but they can combine together fitly and perfectly. God’s arrangement is good for both. Generally woman like talking, man like be the good listener. Man has good logical skill to work and earns money, for woman spends money to buy food, tidy the home, take care man’s health… husbands and wives accompany each other.


Please imagine the picture that there are a wrinkled old man and a old woman setting before a sunset together, wouldn’t you feel sweet about them? But have you ever seen there are 2 wrinkled old men setting before a sunset together? Would you also feel sweet of them? God loves us and knows what is good for us, not only now but even people get old, also even the long long future. We are confident for God’s creation, that man and woman get marriage is the best arrangement.


So we shall remove sexual immorality from our heart, mind and soul. Just like the basic truth of 1 + 1 = 2, “sexual immorality” = eat “rotten fruit”, the result must be equal. Galatians 6:7,8 says “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.”


The truth of 1 + 1 = (must be “equal to”) 2, someone who sows flesh, (must reap “equal to”) corruption from flesh. This is the foundation of truth, Balaam can’t change it, you can’t… no one can change it. Do you believe it? If yes, you are a wise man. We won’t think we are the exceptions because there are no exceptions.


On the other hand, do you have this experience, that is we can resist sexual desire one time, two times…many times but sometime has overcomed by sexual desire? It is very frustrating. Is there any method can remove it permanently? If it is really has the method to remove sexual desire permanently, do you think what will Father say to Jesus?


Maybe Father will say : “My be loved son, it seems the design of sexual desire is not perfect, because it has stopped but I want human can my grace and enjoy life eternally, can you improve sexual desire and let it works eternally?”


Actually the design of sexual desire is perfect and can works eternally no need to improve. That means we won’t expect “sexual desire” stop working on one day, same as “food desire” won’t stop also. If “sexual desire” will not stop working, then we have to “fasting”, this “fasting” will make “sexual desire” slowly and slowly stopped but not remove it. We have to avoid seeing or touching those things can make sexual desire come up such as pictures or videos from screen, books…. We must remove it from our mind(fasting “sexual desire”).


May we all obey and carry out God’s commandment, we must expect this is a very difficult war for we are against spiritual forces of evil. Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”


If we do that we can come out of (The Great Prostitute-the great Babylon). Never give up, failure is a normal process, for we are fighting against Devils who are the powerful evil spirits deceiving the whole world. Keep prayer, keep asking Father to forgive our sins, strength us, help us to remove evil mind. Never give up and with repeated consistent effort, you can adapt to the “fasting” state. Then we can come out of her(the great Babylon) finally. And it will back to normal, sin will be removed when the new heaven and new earth has come. Amen.



Let’s Pray


Jehovah God our Heavenly Father, every good gift and every perfect gift is from you. Thank you Father let us taste sweet, fresh and delicious fruits(food), let us enjoy and happy, be health and strong. I pray to you and admit openly sincerely that we are sinners, and often sin against you, please forgive us and help us to deliver from evil. We know you are serious of sexual relationship, this grace you give us is related to life and need to respect, so you forbid sexual immorality. Under the control of the great prostitute(the great Babylon, the evil spirits), this world is pressing us into it’s wrong sexual immorality mold . Please help us to be clean by forbid sexual immorality. Please Lord Jesus forgive us and ask Father to forgive us too. Please send mighty angel throw the great Babylon into the sea. Amen.


Prayer is also in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
