“To live right you will of necessity require a pure and balanced Diet”
God in His Infinite wisdom gave man the inspiration, education and description of a balanced diet. Balanced Diet is the education of nutrition and nutritional value in relation to healthy growth and life. Growth isn’t limited to size or structure, it is basically health centered. Man never stops growing, his size and structure may appear halted but his experiences are still growing and will continue when he dies. Balanced diet also has spiritual connotations. Every aspect of a man goes hungry, I mean the three dimensions of man, and the spirit soul and body, all require a balance with objective and godly priority. We must mind what we feed each dimension of our being with not forgetting which is of utmost importance while we live here and will live hereafter!
Man is a Spirit that has a soul and lives in a body. The Priority is clear! I believe this is the reason God inspired the letter of Paul to Timothy that bodily exercise profits little but godliness is profitable in all things. Many people have died untimely from their diet because they were poisoned ignorantly. Of all forms of food poisoning, Spiritual poisoning by flesh controlled interpretation of the word of God is the most deadly and disastrous. it is essential to note that Your diet determines your health and life consequently. There is a life that now is and there is a life to come! Man has two lives simulated into one, one leading to the other by his choices (obedience or disobedience)! The transition is determined by Pure and Balanced Diet or Poisoned Diet by Deception.
The spiritual health status of every man determines his functional living on earth and paves his eternity. A man is natural, carnal or spiritual yet triune (Spirit, soul & Body). The natural man is absolutely controlled by the god of this world since he is yet to acknowledge the lordship of Jesus Christ, A carnal man knows and accepted the Lordship of Jesus but isn’t mindful of his diet for growth, his growth impediment makes him constantly gullible to the deception of the devil. The Spiritual man is led by the Spirit, walks and lives by the Spirit having gained the grace of fellowship with God through the meekness of love understood and expressed, constancy of sensitivity to the voice of the shepherd and purity of faith!
Pure Balanced Diet is healthy physical, mental and Spiritual diet. Ingestion may not be harmful but digestion and profession can validate discernment! (Matthew 15:11). Discernment is a sieve! Discernment is the comprehension that sieves a Profitable Diet from the Poisonous Diet. A diet is the right combination of food that contains the required nutrients in their right quantity for a healthy life! Only God can tell man what is good for man. God created and formed man, if Man just appeared, okay from where? Without God nothing was made! Who can know himself better than the one who made Him? Let’s face it, only God can tell you who you are and what you need, he may choose to use men but he has also given us liberty to cross check with Him, When God speaks even if it is through a man or an ass, you will know God is talking to you. How can the man that doesn’t know the beginning of God want to describe God? God can only tell man what he wants him to know and that is a function of the man’s total submission to him and to receive it, you can’t know who you don’t trust and doesn’t trust you either! Everything that is created by man is either inspired by God or Satan, there is no neutral and we know that God is supreme even Satan knows. Know who is inspiring you! Once our peace is violated and our conscience is unstable or stolen, we must know it is not God. God is peace and forever settled. The validity of the word of God is superior to our reasoning, thinking and circumstance or contextual connotations.
It is of utmost importance to adhere to the word of God concerning all things. There is no teacher, pastor, Apostle, evangelist and prophet like God. He formed us all and determines which category we should belong and also told us to proof our learning or diet with the lens of the Holy Spirit which is the only proven master of conviction. i have learnt that God’s wisdom for living is best interpreted by His Spirit. (Ecc 8:1-2, John 14:26, Duet 29:29)
God’s word as documented in the Bible through inspiration given to godly men are not suggestions, they are commandments, principles and guidelines on how to live without confusion because God is not an author of confusion. Psalms 1:1-3. The bible is a mystery that only God and His Spirit can unravel; it is only that which is made available to man that is his. Amazingly, the word of God can’t be interpreted by man in the context of God except by the Holy Spirit that inspired it; through the meekness of study and holy motive man can gain access to the mind of God concerning a matter as documented in scriptures. I maintain that only the Spirit of God can deliver the right perspective of a context in the bible. That window is available to all whom so desire to know what God is saying concerning a matter, amazingly God democratizes his contextual meaning by confirming his contextual meaning to everyone who is truly seeking to know it. God has integrity and is Unity in His Spirit! This is why we have the unity of Spirit. God cannot lie and does not divide; God is the same and will not change today. He is God in the Old Testament and New Testament; God is God, All by Himself. God is not far from us but man is so far from God. Man has become too natural and is undervaluing his supernatural status! You are a supernatural being in natural earth suit called the flesh. We can’t proof God in the flesh, no man can defend God or fight for God, let’s stop the arguments and opinion ironing. God is not man, God is a Spirit and until you are Spiritual, you can’t dine with, relate with or understand God. Period!
Let’s get to know God, His voice and fellowship, and walk in the Spirit to inquire what the mind of God is about a matter than arguing and making suggestive opinion from our little knowing of him. No man can proof his maturity in God except God! No mortal man can interpret the word of God like the Spirit of God, human intelligence and sense are grossly limited to understand the minutest part of the word of God. Get alone with God and know the truth and the right context of His word. whatever he tells you to do , do it! John2:5! We must be careful not to join the mob that subtlety of the devil will lock in. we are in the last days and we must understand that devil knows the scriptures and will definitely fund many doctrines that will usher a form of godliness that will make sense to the human mind. God is supreme and has given us the benevolence of His Holy Spirit to teach us all things that are the truth.
God is the ultimate mirror! The mirror of Man may not be absolute, However, our interpretation also matters!
My point is proof all things , Be led by the Spirit of God and live by the truth of God’s word. Get to know God and not judge others or make conclusions or judge by men’s opinion. Only God can define rightly every subject of man’s initiative and life. Motive may be absent to man but it is present before God. Our intentions are large screens before the All knowing God! Our university is very far from heaven. Let’s not use someone’s syllabus as the curriculum of our life. Judgment is a personal cockpit with God based on His word revealed to you, sent to you and made available to you! Let’s Use the bible as revealed to us by His spirit to live the triumphant life God has given us. Isaiah 30:21!
