Leviticus 11:46 "This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth, To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten"

Information



In this section, I am working on compiling a list of every scripture that is about what we may and may not eat, for quick reference. This list is a work in progress.

I've given this it's own tab since eating is a large part of our lives today, and we're also relying on others to feed us and provide us our food more now than ever before.



YHWH has instructed us to make a difference between clean and unclean, what we may eat, and what we may not eat.
As a quick note, you may see "clean and unclean foods" used, but there is no such thing as an unclean food, since unclean things are not food for humans.
(For example pork is not food for humans, it is unclean abomination to us.)



Many store bought products have been kosher certified and the package will have a small symbol somewhere on it. Many people are surprised to realize this when they have been looking over them not knowing what they were for a long time.
Knowing about these symbols and certifications may help someone out, so I will share about them.
Here is an example of some of the symbols(there are more than these, this is just an example so you get an idea of what to look for);

The 2nd symbol, which is OU certified(an O with a U inside of it), is one of the most common symbols.
OU has a website where you can search for products they have certified as kosher;
http://oukosher.org/product-search/
.
So, if you're new to this, look around your house for these symbols, and enjoy being obedient to YHWH.









The word "kosher" is often used to talk about clean foods.
Kosher is a word that means "fit", so if I say this food is kosher, I am saying this food is fit for consumption.
So knowing the word "kosher", will help greatly in searching for clean foods to eat and restaurants etc that obey YHWH's dietary laws.
Though be warned, I have been offered food by people who told me it was kosher, when it wasn't. In my cases, they didn't really know what makes something kosher, and with no care of the consequence, told me it was kosher and to eat.
You may hear Hebrew speakers actually pronounce this word as kasher and write it like that.
Here is the word written in Hebrew: כשר





This is a subject that will quickly stir up conflict in this modern world that loves to consume food and lusts with it's stomach, people will furiously or mockingly rebuke you for simply doing what you are instructed to do by the very one who made all foods.

Modern christians generally do not obey these commandments, and they sometimes even will proudly disobey them to your face, and then act as if it is amusing.

They claim to love Elohim with their lips, then proudly and arrogantly do what he said not to do, and even may mock it, yet it is his Word.

Modern Christian's doctrines are founded on twisted teachings, and they use these to help convince people to ignore the commandments of YHWH, and they fall victim because they really don't care enough, or because they do not take the time to read and study for themselves.

This of course is covered on page 1 "The Law, Not Abolished", and the connected Misconceptions page.
Also on page 13 "Mistranslations", you will find one of the problems is translators are lying and adding to what the Messiah actually said.

The 2 main false teachings come from Mark 7:19, where modern Christians state false things about what is going on, and also many English translations falsely write in something that is not on the actual text.
The other is from Acts chapter 10, where Peter has a vision about unclean animals and is told to eat them by Elohim, and he is trying to figure out the meaning of this vision, and then the scriptures states that Peter realized the meaning, and that the unclean animals represented gentile people, and really this vision had nothing to do with if we can ignore the command to eat clean or not!
Refer to the other pages for more information.






Muslims do not follow all of the commandments for what to eat and not eat, though they do avoid certain unclean foods such as pigs.
Muslims are taught part of the requirements, but not all of them.

They call their foods that they are allowed to eat "halal" which means permissible or lawful, and you may see this on food packaging as well.

Do not mistake this for a kosher certification, since as I said, not all halal foods are kosher and allowed to be ate, they eat things such as rabbits and crabs and those are unclean animals that YHWH instructed us to never eat as well.





Orthodox Judaism(Pharisee'ism) obeys these commandments, but their error is they add more commandments of their own to the law of YHWH, that creates burden and complication, when the actual commandments of YHWH are simple and easy.
For example, they say mixing meat and dairy is not kosher, when there is not a command from Elohim saying this.
It is not lawful for us to add to the law of YHWH, or take away from it. Despite this, men calling themselves "rabbi" and teacher, have added rules and people have followed them blindly.






I will also update with scriptures talking about clean and unclean even after the sacrifice of YHWH's son Yahushua.
This page is in development.

And the coney because he chews the cud but divides not the hoof he is unclean to you. And the rabbit because he chews the cud but divides not the hoof he is unclean to you. And the pig, though he divide the hoof and be cloven footed yet he chews not the cud, he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall you not eat, and their carcass shall you not touch, they are unclean to you.
These shall you eat of all that are in the waters, whatever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall you eat.

Whatever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination to you.

All winged insects that go on all fours are detestable to you, Yet these may you eat of every flying creeping thing that goes on all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap with on the earth, these of them you may eat, the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind, But all other flying creeping things which have four feet shall be an abomination to you, And for these you shall be unclean, whoever touches the carcass of them shall be unclean until the evening"

Whatever goes on the belly, and whatever goes on all four, or whatever has more feet among all creeping things that creep on the earth, them you shall not eat for they are an abomination. You shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them that you should be defiled thereby, For I am YHWH your Elohim, you shall therefore sanctify yourselves and you shall be holy for I am holy, neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps on the earth"

Leviticus 11:46 "This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth, To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten" 
   

Leviticus 17:10 "And whatever man there be of the house of Yisrael, or of the foreigners that sojourn among you, that eats any manner of blood, I will set my face against that soul that eats blood and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood and I have given it to you on the altar to make an atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said to the children of Yisrael, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any foreigner that sojournes among you eat blood. And whatever man there be of the children of Yisrael or of the foreigners that sojourn among you which hunts and catches any beast or fowl that may be eaten, he shall pour out the blood thereof and cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh, the blood of it is for the life thereof, therefore I said to the children of Yisrael, You shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh, for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof. Whoever eats it shall be cut off"  

Leviticus 19:23 "And when you shall come into the land and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised. Three years shall it be as uncircumcised to you, it shall not be eaten of.

I am YHWH your Elohim"

But I have said to you, You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess it, a land that flows with milk and honey, I am YHWH your Elohim which have separated you from other people. You shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean, and you shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creeps on the ground which I have separated from you as unclean. And you shall be holy to me, for I YHWH am holy and have severed you from other people that you should be mine"

Deuteronomy 12:23 "Only be sure that you eat not the blood, for the blood is the life and you may not eat the life with the flesh. You shall not eat it, you shall pour it on the earth as water. You shall not eat it that it may go well with you and with your children after you when you shall do that which is right in the sight of YHWH"

Deuteronomy 14:1 "You are the children of YHWH your Elohim, you shall not cut yourselves nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead, For you are a holy people to YHWH your Elohim and YHWH has chosen you to be a peculiar people to himself above all the nations that are on the earth. You shall not eat any abominable thing. These are the beasts which you shall eat, the ox, the sheep, and the goat, The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois, And every beast that parts the hoof, and separates the cleft into two claws, and chews the cud among the beasts, that you shall eat. 
But these you shall not eat of them that chew the cud or of them that divide the cloven hoof, as the camel, and the rabbit, and the coney, for they chew the cud but divide not the hoof, therefore they are unclean to you, And the pig because it divides the hoof yet chews not the cud, it is unclean to you, you shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their dead carcass.
These you shall eat of all that are in the waters, all that have fins and scales shall you eat, And whatever has not fins and scales you may not eat, it is unclean to you.
Of all clean birds you shall eat, But these are they of which you shall not eat, the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind, And every raven after his kind, And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan, And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant,  And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat, And every creeping thing that flies is unclean to you, they shall not be eaten, But of all clean fowls you may eat"

Deuteronomy 14:21 "You shall not eat of anything that dies of itself, you shall give it to the foreigner that is in your gates that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner, for you are a holy people to YHWH your Elohim. You shall not boil a kid in his mother's milk"

But you shall in any wise let the mother go and take the young to you, that it may be well with you and that you may prolong your days"







Other Scriptures relating to the commandment;




Job 14:4 "Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one"


Isaiah 65:2 "I spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people who walk in a way that is not good following their own imaginations, a people who provoke me to my face continually sacrificing in gardens and making offerings on bricks who sit in tombs and spend the night in secret places, who eat pig’s flesh and have broth of unclean meat in their containers who say, 'Keep to yourself, do not come near me, for I am more Holy than you' these people are a smoke in my nostrils, a fire that burns all the day. Behold it is written before me I will not keep silent, but I will repay, I will indeed repay into their bosom"


Isaiah 66:15 "For behold, YHWH will come in fire and his chariots like the whirlwind to render his anger in fury and he will rebuke with flames of fire, for with fire and with his sword YHWH will execute judgment upon all men, and many will be killed by YHWH, those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following the one in the midst of those who eat the flesh of pigs and rats and other abominable things, they will all die together, declares YHWH"


This is an example showing in the future there are obviously still unclean animals:
Revelation 18:2 "And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird"
