Scripture/Thought for the Week

  • 1) Is Yeshua (Jesus) the Word in the flesh? (John 14:1)
  • 2) Did Yeshua only speak the Father's Word in the Father's authority? (John 12:49)
  • 3) Is Yeshua (the Word) the same yesterday, today, and forever? (Hebrews 13:8)
  • 4) Is God the Word and can God not change? (John 1:1; Malachi 3:6)
  • 5) Is Leviticus 11 and 23 part of the Word of God? 
  • 6) Can Leviticus 11 and 23 change? (see questions 1-4)

Challenge question: Does your theology correctly answer yes to questions 1-4 but fail at question number 5-6?

I don't have an answer, but another question: since God allowed dietary rules to be changed after Noah's flood, could he not have allowed a change again after Pentecost?

I don't think so. The Mosaic covenant wasn't in place yet during the time of Noah, even though there was knowledge of clean and unclean animals. When YHVH gave the covenant to the Israelites at Sinai, it was an everlasting covenant (His words not mine). Therefore, what He says is ok to eat in that covenant is still standing. Even Yeshua told us WHEN that covenant would be no longer valid in Matt 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished."
So for me, until Heaven and Earth disappear, I try and show my Heavenly Father I love Him by seeking to obey His laws of life, which really are not hard at all, and science is proving YHVH's wisdom more and more
