Happy Sabbath Miami temple good to be with you all again even though this is a virtual. Just praising God for the invite and so on and thank you. Again sister Julie for for inviting me and pastor for having me we're going to get right into the message today we notice health intemperance health temperance weekend a preview enjoyed the coronavirus presentation last night and that you'll enjoy what we discussed this afternoon a scripture reading is taken from Romans chapter 8 starting a verse 13 says for if you live after the flesh you shall die but if ye through the Spirit do mortified the deeds of the body you shall live a message the Sabbath is untitled appetite and the end times let's pray Father God we thank you for this opportunity to study your word pray Father God that you would just fill me now with your Holy Spirit and Lord by the power Holy Spirit speak through me let me not be seen or heard instead father let us hear word from the throne room Grace this is our prayer in Jesus's name Amen All right so we're going to talk about appetite and the end times and. This is this is one of the things we talk about health and temperance the temperance side of it does deal with controlling the appetite the Bible stories a familiar one it will deal with this morning Daniel one and verse one says in the 3rd year of the reign of joy Kim king of Juda came never can as a king of Babylon into Drusilla and be seized it the Lord gave you I came king of Juda into his hand with part of the vessels of the house of God which he carried into the land of Shannara to the house of his God and brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god never get as it goes and he takes control of. Judah captures the King takes the vessels really never lets up there are 3 separate times never again as a taxi time seems to get worse until finally he wipes them out but this time is the time when Daniels picked up one of the earlier of the attacks and he takes some of the vessels with him then you want to verse 3 says in the King speak on to Ashton as the master of his Unix that he should bring certain of the children of Israel and of the king seed and of the princes children whom was no blemish but well favored and skilful in all wisdom and cunning and knowledge and understanding science and such as had ability in them to stand in the king's palace and whom they might teach the learning in the tongue of the Chaldeans the king appointed them I do it daily provision of the king's meat of the wine which he drank so nourishing them 3 years that I d. end thereof they might stand before the king Daniel cataract me shack and Abednego are taken captive in Judah by never can as a brought all the way to Babylon it was a terrible trip up in a round the desert had to go north and then back south in a u. shaped trajectory to get to Babylon it probably had to walk most of that distance it was humbling these were princes of Israel Daniel shower it means I going to bed until when I get there Deb never can as it has a pretty sophisticated approach to try and control other nations in trying to civilize them as it were into Babylonian customs and culture and so he's he would train them for 3 years in the language of the Babylonians but he would not reach them on their diet that sort of Bibles that it would give him a provision of the king's meat and of the wine which he drank 3 years. Proverbs 23 probably came to mind to Daniel and the 3 were boys then which of Proverbs 23 of us one says when they are citizens to eat with a ruler consider diligently what is before the and put a knife to your throat if you be a man given to appetite be not desirous of desirous of his dainties for they are deceitful meet Solomon wise Solomon whom they would have known the teachings of Solomon was one of their ancestors in a sense Solomon warn when you go to sit before a king or ruler Be careful what they put in front of you because he's it's as if Solomon is suggesting that through the control of diet the king or a ruler can control you that in fact it can be deceitful Now obviously you can translate meat and bread into into doctrinal or theological ideas so in a very kind of spiritual sense you do have to be careful what you take in in terms of the ology and doctrine but in another way even physically what you eat can affect you affect not just your health but the way you think says Be not desirous of his dainties for they are deceitful meat in other words they will use food to deceive you to get the end that they want and if you have a desire to show your appetite is a billboard. A picture of a billboard that says crafted for your craving one of the top fast food joints in the country fashion chains says that their food is crafted it's designed for your craving to talk more about that in a 2nd in fact in America the king of Babylon has been saying to eat. The average rest average restaurant meal today is more than 4 times larger than in the 1950 s. French fries went from an average of 2.4 ounces to 6.7 ounces and from 1050 to now burgers went from 3.9 ounces to 12 ounces soda went from 7 ounces to 42 ounces something has significantly changed in not just in the size of the food portions but even in the way the food is crafted and I want to submit to you that in the end times this is one of the ways I will see more of it that Satan is going to seek to lower your spiritual strength Babylon's delicacies. Salt sugar and fat talk more about that in a 2nd but this is the trifecta Some call it an unholy trinity processed sugar highly refined with what processed or animal process fats are animal fats and of course. A massive exposure in humans to salt that is not capable of you just eat food in its natural form so New York Times Magazine put this article out back in 2013 I believe it was written by Michael Moss and it says the extraordinary science of addictive junk food yes there's a science somebody is trying to design food so that you buy more and more of it and I want to submit to you that I can I can I can find you the proof in a sense that someone is designing the food there's people call food scientists and food chemists food engineers probably even but. I want to submit to you that there is in all tear your motive just as the serpent tried to control the appetite of Adam and Eve in a garden he had a he had a deceptive purpose to to separate Adam and Eve from God just as Lucifer met Christ Satan Met Christ in the in the wilderness of temptation and tempted him on the point of appetite so to try and derail his mission on Earth so to say that in the end times trying to use appetite against us well how do they do it well one of the things they use one of Congreve ingredients I will talk about sugar much in this talk when we talk about an afternoon one of the things they do is they try and get you to reach a bliss point and this is a graph from one of the studies as the term bliss point was coined in a letter in the late 1990 s. by American market researcher and cycle physicist Howard Moskowitz he defined it as that sensory profile where you like the food the most so what to do they found that there is. A certain amount of saltiness that as you increase the saltiness it either makes you like or dislike the food more and more of this little salt is not very good but there's a bliss point that you reach where you can't almost say no to the food so what you'll find is that most food in a standard American diet the s.a.t. the sad the standard American diet is highly salted contains tons of sodium which is sort of core it is what makes salt tons of salt and they do this because one it is a preservative but also because there's a bliss point and salt you know you become desensitized to it any more and more of it studies show that increase allt intake increases your appetite makes you actually eat more. But we also saw itself as the Dilla Terry's effect on the body increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other problems. So one of the things that's happened is that it massively increased the amount of salt of vailable in food and it doesn't matter if you buy Himalayan pink sea salt or if you buy the fanciest organic salts they sell at whole foods salt the salt and if there's a ton of salt in your food either because you buy it at a restaurant or bribe prepackaged. The salt is going to have its effect on you and for the purpose of our talk today it will actually increase your appetite Well so how do you how does the devil get people hooked appetite wise Well he starts when you're young just as they came after Daniel shatter Acme shack and Abednego when they were just probably teenage boys to try and convince them of the ways of the Babylonian diet and culture they come after our children the same way because they know if your child starts drinking Coca-Cola rather than Pepsi when a 6 and 7 years old that is the drink they're going to their whole life the fast food joint that they fall in love with is the one they probably going to stick with most of the rest of their life and so they start young and this cartoon shows you that even the government gets in on this this is extra vegetable on your pizza there's a little bit tomatoes paste dropped on the pizza and a little boy says you guys are way cooler than the other lunch lady and of course the ladies squeeze the tubes as the food industry lobby. The other one holding a candle says Congress and end up in the garbage can of the u.s.d.a. is a nutrition guidelines and so you go to school you look at the back look at the back was a school lunch pizza fries pizza fries fried pizza from a young age we were taught to eat highly refined processed foods salted with very little nutritional value they say it's food but it's not real food. In fact the government has came into office here is a picture of Ronald Reagan holding up a block of government cheese government cheese how much cheese is too much cheese and this is not a partisan thing because both sides of the aisle have contributed to making sure Americans get on healthy food the government actively encourages your cheese addiction I want to read or write in the dietary guidelines the United States government notes that most people consume far too much saturated fat cholesterol and sodium and encourage Americans to cut back to improve their health but when it comes to cheese the top source of all 3 all 3 over consumed nutrients it is the is the government practicing what it preaches the u.s. government accepts about $140000000.00 per year from the cheese industry which is then pumped into the into Dairy Management Incorporated. Overseen by the u.s.d.a. whose function is to boost the sales of milk Dmae the Dairy Management Incorporated spends millions of taxpayer dollars working with fast food I don't 1st fast food chains to develop cheesy high fat menu items and promote them to the American public when these cheddar lovers bacon cheeseburger Pizza Hut's ultimate cheese pizza which features an entire pound of cheese in a single serving are just 2 examples of how to put taxpayer dollars to work fascinating you can find us on that information on the physicians for for Responsible Medicine page so someone is actually pushing this just as never again as a push to his stuff on Daniel chatter at me 2nd Abednego cheese what I want to write here says Jared downs from. The Courier Journal out of Louisville Kentucky had an article where he said cheese is so addictive one doctor calls it dairy crack and of course if you want to learn more about it you can read Neal Barnard book the cheese trap cheese is full of saturated fat. Salt and cholesterol literally 3 things everyone is supposed to be avoiding yet it is being promoted by the government to what end Well we know today a certain faction it avoid and you see here is a trans fats these are usually happen in a process of fire frying and processing foods to find and cookies and margarine and. Fried chicken and stuff like that and saturated fat is also in cheese and. And in meats. And of course in dairy products in general even in some oils. Especially what they call tropical oils like palm oil and coconut oil and these facts are everywhere and what I want to submit to you today when we talk about the appetite me and time is that if you want to be healthy you've got to get away from these fats so much so that it's in the Bible Leviticus Chapter 20 Chapter 7 sorry verses 23 and 25 says it like this speak to the people of Israel saying you shall eat no fat of ox or sheep or boat verse 25 says for every person who eats of the fat of an animal of which if I may be made to the Lord shall be cut off from his people that was never to be consumed like this in fact it was it should be it was it will be removed in a certain way if you are going to eat meat but most of us eat meat now with the fact still attached in fact it's a part we probably like the most in fact the way that they raise the meat today actually causes fat to go into the muscles we're talking about how it affects humans we get fat and fat in our muscle cells and in our muscle fiber but the animals get it so that the chicken actually taste different people say listen that chicken was so good I bid it and it melted in my mouth that is because the chicken meat is full of fact inside the muscle not just the fat outside the muscle and how does all of that affect the human. Well this article lard lessons instead of hard lessons lard lesson wife that lubricates your appetite saturated fat dulls the brain's response to keep appetite hormones and affect you useful in our evolutionary past during times of scarcity but not so much in a well fed society so what happens is when you eat fats they say it's evolutionary but the truth is when you effect that what happens is it goes into your brain and it it messes with your brain's ability to do sense leptin which fat cells release in order to tell you that you're full get let's get more into that so we know the fat now actually eating so we know salt inning increases appetite fat eating also increases appetite so here's a here's how another mechanism by how it happens that Arafat's contribute to diabetes how because dietary fats go in the cell. And what we call intro my cellular limpid and which is fat inside the muscle fat in the bloodstream can build up inside the muscle cell and create toxic fatty breakdown products and free radicals that can block the insulin signalling process meaning. What happens is no matter how much insulin is available or you have in your blood it won't be able to open the glucose gate so the glucose channel downers of fat blocks up where the keys gone in so that this doesn't open so sugar can't go into the cell what does happen then what on your blood sugar goes up your blood sugar goes up and you especially if eating salt sugar and fat fat is blocking up into the receptors the sugar in the soda you're swashing the fat now with now can't go into your cells your blood sugar goes up and this is literally how diabetes happens a lot of people don't know that in fact if you want to avoid diabetes the secret is to avoid fat. But here's the other problem when that happens you become insulin insensitive so much insulin floating around that you become tolerant all the insulin insulin does not work anymore. And so what happens is with his insulin resistance you also get brain insulin resistance when the brain becomes insulin resistant. Appetite also does gets dysfunction so. Salt does it that does it in one way in a couple ways was so you bought them a 2nd one way is one fat causes increase insulin release because it makes you insulin because it makes of insulin doesn't work on cells now your brain becomes insulin resistant and you can't control appetite here's where it gets even scarier leptin which is released by the fact cells in the body now signals the brain that fat stores are supposing a brain that faster was a fine so you don't need to eat any more but when your insulin resistant leptin is blocked and so now the brain would also become leptin resistant sort of you literally can't tell when you're full crazy so number one you get insulin resistance which will ease the appetite dysfunction which leads to leptin signal block and it is a vicious cycle that causes you and if some of you have experienced this like I have experienced in my life literally you eat to the point where eating makes you want to eat more. You can't figure out how to lose weight you can't figure out to get things under control because you constantly are eating more and more and no matter how much you eat is feels like you need to eat more but it is because of the salt the fact and the sugar in your diet all in the wrong forms taken in the wrong way is taken in the wrong amounts so watch this the journal nutritional biochemistry so the fatty acid mediated I put down the inflammation and epigenetic programming sort of the 3rd the 3rd way is this one fatty acid media have put on the information so fatty acids the facts if you don't of these facts what's I'll show you which facts of bad ones. Here in a 2nd but when you eat all of these fats they go into the hypothalamus the part of your brain that centers around regulation of temperature and appetite and things like that literally causes dysfunction there. And that dysfunction makes it so that even because of the quantity of saturated fat especially from animal products or from Pylea processed plant oils especially things like coconut oil and palm oil but even Olive Oil these facts go into the brain and messes with your hypothalamus is ability to regulate appetite and then there's epi genetic programming so that these can trigger twitch genes in your body that were not it was the switch that you can pass on to your children and possibly make it more difficult for them to control their appetite but of course it wasn't just the meat from the king's table it was also alcohol it was the king's meat and his wine Well what does the study say to a study say alcohol flips the brain into hungry mode alcohol switches the brain into starvation mode increasing hunger and appetite scientists have discovered So you wash down that fatty salty sugary meal with a bear or a glass of wine and you're training your brain to eat more to want to eat more and more and more and more. Inflammation linked to Alzheimer's reduced cognition and brain fog This is powerful so what we know now is that when we eat these especially fatty foods it causes inflammation in the brain a sure but more about that in a 2nd but that inflammation will cause reduced cognition and brain fog the foods we eat can literally mess with the way we think why is that relevant in a 2nd but this is incredibly important to a Christian trying to follow God in the end times so the studies are overwhelming the studies also show for all Simer suffers brain inflammation ignites in neuron killing forest fire the source of this most likely from inflammatory effects of food that we eat an inflammatory effect across the blood brain barrier and inflame the brain. When they've studied all timers what we're finding is all of the studies lead back to certain cells in the brain that are tied back to the immune system is the immune system that causes inflammation so when we eat a bad diet that is pro-inflammatory it inflames the brain now. If the brain is inflamed than you don't think well if you can't think well you can't reason well this will affect your salvation as a one in verse 18 says I like this Come let us reason together says the Lord though your sins be a scarlet they shall be as white as snow it is the ability to reason and. Joshua said Choose you this day whom you will serve if you can't think straight you can't choose right. So what I want you to see is that diet can affect the way you think so much so that scientists are start to think that it can actually completely slow the brain down damage the brain so much that it actually triggers all timers disease that a fatty acids that cross into the brain are pro-inflammatory in fact this study that I talked about is another message that show that how he displays these highly processed foods. Animal fats and sugars and salts but especially just as in problem flamethrower diet actually is one of maybe a key contributing factor to why did so much anxiety and depression in America so if you want to be a Christian you need your brain to work well of the last time I was with you guys in Miami talked about the frontal lobe of the brain being the most important part the most holy part of the brain of the brain in terms of the most just like the most holy part of the sanctuary this is where as a kind of Glory of God is to fall in your frontal lobe reasoning centers of your brain boom that's where it is supposed to fall and it is supposed to be protected because this is where the seal of God is going to go by the Holy Spirit is where God's name is written on 144 thousands in their forehead so this is a key part of the brain what we now know is that when you eat as bad that it can actually shrink the frontal cortex of the brain decreasing your ability to think properly and straight the Bible says blessed that I have princes when they eat for strength and not for drunkenness is a way that you can eat that actually messes with you where you think is why Daniel does this then $16.00 and $7.00 says now among these were of the children of Judah then you had and I Michel and Azariah under whom the princes of the eunuchs gave names we gave it to Daniel to name Bill to show as our. And hand and eye of shadow rock and of and to Michelle of me shack and Azariah of Abednego the names all means I'm Daniel meant God is my judge or the judgement of God He was renamed Delta shares are bells prince of a bell being the ruling God of Babylon at the time of their panty and had an I I became beloved of the law whose name was beloved the Lord became Shadrack which means illumined by the son Michel whose name was who is God. Was changed the name who is like shut shackles a pagan god Azariah means the Lord is my help his name was changed to the servant of Neagle and Nikos one of their gods you can see how they messed up their names almost as if they were mocking Daniel in the 3 Hebrew boys but they were trying to change their names trying to change their thinking Daniel wanted verse something Daniel said that we all have to say he said for Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with a portion of the king's meat nor would the wine which he drank therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself what we know as I just mentioned is there food of Fogg's the brain has spiritual consequences spiritual consequences because if you if you are not thinking straight Daniel not 3 boys were sitting at a very incredibly relevant prophetic time Jeremiah had only given 70 years 70 years for the captivity they were in Babylon during that time. In fact it would be through prophecy that Daniel would write his book and even be elevated in the eyes of that we can as an ultimately convert never connected to the serving the true God but it all started because all of them were committed to keeping their appetites under control and living as God says live now you want to verse 9 says now God brought Daniel into favor and tender love for the prince of the Unix. The Prince of the unit set of the Daniel I fear my lord the king was appointed your meat and your drink for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort then shall you make the end the me in danger my head to the king then said Daniel to Mel's are whom the prince of the Unix had sent over Daniel had and I am Michel an as Or I'll prove that I servants I beseech thee 10 days and let them give us pulse to eat and water to drink then what are countenances be looked upon before the and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat and as thou sayest deal with the servants so he consented to them in this matter and prove them 10 days and at the end of the 10 days their countenance appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children that eat the portion of the Kings me that smells are took away the portion of their meat and the wind that they should drink gave them polls polls is also lentils and you can see one of the benefits of lentils it helps in optimal brain functioning that's because they make lentils a really good day at the office because they have a lot of fully to actually fight against cancer but is also a chemical called coenzyme which is a critical ingredient for brain function is really an important home alone. It is important for most of this is an energy production general brain function and lentils are great in a great source of pantothenic acid which makes the chemical Cohens I mean. And so when you eat lentils literally lentils help the brain to function better isn't it interesting that's what Daniel was given that's what he asked for and for us there's more we should be not just eating lentils but blueberries blueberries have been found to enhance brain blood flow. Rumors of course of awesome infighting infection blueberries contain neuroprotective poly phenols a new study revealed a beneficial increase blood flow to the brain one study here shows blueberry supplementation improves memory in older adults now this is just blueberries but there are other the fruits that are full of antioxidants mangles tomatoes all full of wonderful antioxidants and I could go on and on all of the things the color on the skin of an a red apple dark grapes all rich would foods what would substances that will help you not only be healthier in a body but also healthier in the mind here's an interesting study blueberries may boost brain function for kids there are studies that show if you give kids one 3rd as our kids give them one cup a blue no cup of blueberries one cup or 2 cups as you gave them or blueberries before he went to school they actually did better in school so cute consumption of a flavonoid rich while blueberry drink may improve memory and attention attentional aspects of executive function in healthy children and I was a study from the United Kingdom so I want to see that when you give your kid a honey bun for breakfast it was not a glass of milk or worse a soda they go to school none of these ingredients are in it for the child of the school they can't focus their blood sugar shoots up from that honey bottle of sugary cereal saturated fat in the whole milk you put in a cereal all of that stuff just is messing with the brain of the child they go to school the sugar is way up the insulin has to come up when insulin gets all the way up the sugar drops way down so they go from all of this energy to no energy by 3rd period they can't function they can't concentrate they can't pay attention in class. Diet is critical and if that is true for children going to school how much more true is it but those of us who are of the remnant church in the School of Life as we are in interacting with the Great Teacher Jesus Christ that means our diet should be at a peak of what it can be in order for us to learn the lessons God wants to teach us and I believe not just a lesson the turn of intellectual learning but spiritually as our mind is more clear the Holy Spirit can work with us even better and I like says it like this she says to the fidelity to through the fidelity to the principles of temperance shown by the Hebrew youth God is speaking to the youth of today there is need of men who are like Daniel there is need of men who like then you will do and dare for the cause of right if your heart's strong hands fearless courage are needed for the warfare between Vice and Virtue calls for ceaseless vigilance to every soul Satan comes of temptation and many a learning forms on the point of indulgence of appetite the body is a most important medium through which the mind and the soul are developed for the upbuilding of character Hence it is that that the adversary of souls directs his temptations to the infeed bling and degrading of the physical powers his success here often means the surrender of the whole being to evil the tendencies of the physical nature unless under the dominion of a higher power would surely work ruin and death the body is to be brought into subjection to the high powers of the being the passions are to be controlled by the will which is itself to be under control of God. To kingly power of reason sanctified by Divine Grace is to bear sway in the life intellectual power physical stamina and the length of life depend upon immutable laws through obedience to these laws man may stand conqueror of himself conqueror of his own inclinations conqueror of Prince of policies and powers of the rulers of darkness of this world and of spiritual wickedness in high places he calls the fees and $612.00 as for prophets and kings preach for $88.00 we're told that our diet will allow us to go to battle. Will strengthen our ability I should say to go to battle against the forces of evil if the Word of God is the sort of an evasion since you've given up take on the whole armor of God resprayed of righteousness helmet of salvation shield of faith the only offensive weapon is the sword is the Word of God which means you've got to learn the word study the word gift of clarity to understand a word or a few If your brain isn't functioning well in these last days you'll have. An imperfect sword the ability to go to battle with the devil by quoting his Scotch scripture and understanding his truth then you want to verse 17 as for these 4 children God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom by them it seems to make a connection here between the diet and your ability to learn and dangle that understanding in all visions and dreams and then it makes the connection to the spiritual realm understanding prophecy and the gift of prophecy not the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in then the Prince of the Unix brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar the king commune with them and among them all was found none like Daniel had and I Michel and Azariah therefore stood there before the king. In all matters of wisdom and understanding that the king inquired of them he found them 10 times better than all the magicians of astrologers that were in and all is wrong Daniel continued even under the 1st year of King Cyrus they got not only to get strength and stamina and wisdom and spiritual strength they got long Jevon t. of life they lived all the way through the 70 year prophecy of Jeremiah and existed even after Babylon fell and White says I guess Christ ran from page 111 in no other way has Satan come with his temptations to fall and humankind as successfully as through the appetite gods Amazing Grace page 111 it is necessary to maintain a living connection with heaven seeking as often as the Daniel 3 times a day for divine grace to resist appetite and passion wrestling with appetite and passion unaided by divine power will be unsuccessful but make Christ your stronghold in the language of his soul will be in all things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us Romans 837 said the apostle Paul I keep under my body and bring it into subjection lest after by less that by any means when I have preached to others I myself should be cast away 1st Corinthians 927 that were cast away there is from the Greek word doc a modest means to be disqualified Paul says he beats down his body and brings it is objection and I said the last time I was at Miami temple and repeated to James Dr James Coll doctor in a preacher physician and preacher said once me when I heard him give a healthy temperance message many years ago he said Your body will conspire to kill you if you give your body everything it wants every urge every every every every everything it likes everything every time it wants it your body will work against you to kill you I see use the surgical ward. The cancer wards are full of people who are who allowed their body to desire its wants and by giving its body their bodies what they wanted cause great disease and harm was a beat down my body and I bring it into subjection really narrowed. From October 21st 84 says the reason of why many of us will fall in the time of trouble is because of laxity intemperance and indulgence of appetite appetite and the End Times and the wise 9 tenths of the wickedness among children of today is caused by intemperance and in eating and drinking Adam and Eve lost eaten through the indulgence of appetite and we can only regain it by the denial of the same real natural October 21st $884.00. My solemn plea to you in this is my struggle I praise God I've been successful God is continually allowed me to lose weight as I stick to eating a whole food plant based diet get out and exercise and run and do all those different things and I can tell you that the weighted in Scripture tells us the eat is the way to eat for sure clarity of mind strength of body but most importantly that as we begin to live and eat the way God and structures as Daniel and 3 boys did our billet to connect with God is enhanced Christ controlled his appetite my fasting for 40 days in the wilderness Daniel refused the king's wine and his meat God gave the manna instead of flesh in the wilderness all of the clues are in the scripture and I want to say again this is not no reason to be judge mental or harsh on people on these on these points find one thing if it's sure if it's so to 1st give up soda don't change anything else. So walk away from sort of get that sugar out of your diet and feel that what happens how much better you feel when an app is than you can say are let's get some processed foods out of our diet your body we're going to remove white rice or replace or brown rice or or buckwheat or some other whole grain and over time you can go through and begin to say you know for breakfast instead a pancakes and eggs I have steel cut oats and some fruit I say well maybe I still want to pay because you make them whole grain pancakes but lots of blueberries and of pancakes need that with some fruit what I'm saying to you is if you move towards God he will move toward you not here to make it even feel guilty but I am saying that we serve a God who delivers if he cannot deliver us from appetite how can he deliver us from sin and we are living in the end times when we need clarity with all the things we see going on in the world I have learned that if we trust God He can make the difference and make the change and in these and times we are going to need clarity of mind strength of body and a connection with Jesus Christ in order to make it through is our prayer in Jesus's name that we'd all be able to find strength in him to overcome Let us pray Father God we thank you for this opportunity to study a word for what operator we would all be given victory over appetite it's a difficult thing what it means and times Lord this is where Satan will get many the hospitals of America are full those who ate whatever they wanted and drank whatever they wanted but the people of God be pulled apart the world as seen through the blue zone studies on Loma Linda that if we follow your precepts Father God we will have longevity of life and strength so Father God help us to apply the health laws to each one of our lives not just that it will live long or be strong and healthy. For the clarity that comes by following your word and. That all be saved. Because we had such a strong vision ship with. A prayer in Jesus.
