Daniel 1-2:23

8 But Daniel was determined not to defile himself by eating the food and wine given to them by the king. He asked the chief of staff for permission not to eat these unacceptable foods.

Hmmm, this verse has intrigued me like never before. I know that there are several theories on what kind of food Daniel and his three friends didn’t want to eat. Where they sacrificed to idols, I don’t know and I’m pretty much convinced that foods sacrificed to idols when eaten would not cause a difference in physical appearance. Most likely they were to be given were foods that were ceremonial “unclean.”

Five years ago I was diagnosed as a Type II diabetic. Meaning something going on in my metabolic makeup was either causing my pancreases not to produce enough insulin and/or my muscles had become insensitive to the presences of insulin in my bloodstream. This year I began reading every bit of research that I could get my hands on in regard to Type II and found that there is a branch of medicine that is looking at something called, “Metabolic Syndrome,” a precursor to Type II. There is also a group that is looking at our food supply to determine if the food processing used to increase the shelf life and the animal feed used to fatten the domesticated animals we consume may be fueling metabolic syndrome, which is leading many of us down a path to unhealthy bodies, hmmm.

Could the need to supply the palace with luscious steaks with marbleized fat making each little bit of meat tender and succulent instead of grass fed livestock roaming the land making their muscles strong and tough be the reason why these four men refused to eat from the king’s table? From what I have been reading, the changes in feed, produce animals that our bodies are finding hard to not only digest but also to uptake the nutrients. Thus we become overfed and undernourished.

Sorry to go off on a tangent especially after having not been able to post since Nov. the 5th (Computer problems), but today’s reading is making so much sense to me with what I am researching and studying.

Grace and peace,

Sometimes suffering is what really brings us to our knees before God...I guess the greatest testimony is that of a christian who while suffering still gives glory to God...I'm still very much in the moulding process and have to admit many times I still do grumble and complain instead of glorifying God/believing it will all turn out for good....It helps me sometimes to remember the right road is narrow,maybe uncomfortable..but it's the only one that takes you home.....
God bless you all

I really have to keep this short ... I'm soooooo sick!!! But can't do without my Bible reading and leaving you a comment!!!

Proverbs 28 verse 14 today teaches us: "Blessed are those who fear to do wrong, but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble."

I liked the question you asked: Do I fear to do wrong? What does it mean to fear to do wrong? How does one live one's life if you fear to do wrong? ~~ Well, the thing for me, personally, is that I'm afraid to do wrong and not cause of the fear to be punished. But I don't want to dissapoint My Father. He's really teaching me to do right, he healed me, he polished me and I don't want to mess up. Sure, I don't want to do wrong, cause I want to life right, as a good person. Before my rebirth I really didn't care, I always figured that I could handle myself if my 'doing wrong' came after me to bite me in the butt. But now it's the Lord who I'm sort of betraying, and I don't want to. Cause He's been nothing but good to me. He changed my life and I don't want to let Him down.

ps: I really hope you all understand my comments. English is not my first language ...

Okay Soooo Confused by 1Peter 3:19 what does he mean when he says he preached to the Spirits in prision? Is he talking about the risen Lord Going into Hell? I'm kinda lost on this one, And Surprised you didn't mention it. You always bring up Little Diamonds that we may overlook trying to get the Big picture. Good Reading and Overview.

I enjoyed this reading. I believe that when we suffer for Christ, we are growing, remember when you were a kid and you would get "growing pains". Sometimes growing hurts, but you have to sometimes suffer in order to grow.

Also, I like the "fear to do wrong", I want to fear to do wrong, because that means that I'm striving to draw closer to the Lord and I don't want to do anything that would be displeasing to Him. God is awesome and I love Him

I looove the book of Daniel...to anybody who hasnt read it, you're in for a real treat! Or if we have read it once or 100 times, we're still in for a treat!

1 Peter is also awesome teachings and instructions for Godly living. Lets be doers of the word not just hearers/readers.

Psalm is also beautiful! So much stood out, but if I start writing I doubt I could stop :p

Thank you God for Your Word!

God's timing is so perfect. I just received and e-mail from an athiest, satanist, that he was going to slander me. I didn't really care what he said, but the passage in I Peter, really encouraged me anyway.
