THE FOOD THAT WE SHOULD EAT
You may wonder that there were people written or mentioned in the Holy Bible that have lived long years, compared to our generation having a life span of only 70 to 80 years.
We ate the flesh of animals and other creatures, and we have shorter lifespan. Maestro Eraño M. Evangelista asks: Regarding the animals, for what purpose did God create them?
Let us read it in the Holy Bible...
tents of marauders are undisturbed,
It shows that animals have been instrumental in our technological advancement. Flight, we learned it from the birds and the insects; our ships and submarines, we learned from the fishes and others.
And though we eat their meat:
God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in
number and fill the earth. The fear and dread of you will fall upon all the
beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, upon every creature that moves
along the ground, and upon all the fish of the sea; they are given into your
We were only given power over the animals and to learn from them.
Everything that lives and moves will be food for you.
I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
Though they were given permission to eat the meat of animals, they were tested if they really have understood God's commandment in Genesis 1:28-30 - "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."
What is its proof? Will there be consequences?
you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it. And for your
lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from
every animal. And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life
of his fellow man.
Maestro Eraño M. Evangelista says: God has said it before that if we will eat the meat of animals, there will be consequences for us. It was the time when people began to experience diseases related to the blood - hypertension, high blood pressure, cancer, and others.
That is why, before this time with the people of Noah, from Adam to his descendants, they were eating vegetables and fruits of plants, their lifespan were longer:
Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image;
and he named him Seth. After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other
sons and daughters. Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died.
This is the confirmation that when they observe and follow God's Commandments they have long lives.
To give another example, which we have all known about:
Methuselah had lived 187 years, he became the father of Lamech. And after he
became the father of Lamech, Methuselah lived 782 years and had other sons and
daughters. Altogether, Methuselah lived 969 years, and then he died.
This is the teaching that if man will return to God and start to eat vegetables and fruits of plants again, then the next generations will have longer lifespan.
So, when men thought that God permitted them (in Genesis 9:1-6) to eat the meat of animals, they forgot the prohibitions. That they will have to pay for the lifeblood of the flesh of the animals with their own blood, is it true?
length of our days is seventy years -
Is it not the average lifespan of our present generation? Maestro Eraño M. Evangelista says, we can still return to the time when man has longer lifespan, provided that we listen and understand God's Message.
Is there a chance for us to regain our long lives?
"Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth.
God had indeed promised it before, and no one knew about it then:
glad and rejoice forever in what I will create,
The city of Jerusalem already exists at the time this prophecy was given. The general condition of the old city at present is not peaceful. It would mean the prophecy refers to another city, a new Jerusalem.
rejoice over Jerusalem
This is the promise of God to his new people, no more suffering and death from diseases and calamities. No more curse.
again will there be in it
This is the life full of blessing; longer life, and no more diseases and plagues. Bountiful and healthy city.
will build houses and dwell in them;
Now, we can start to eat the food God had told us before. Let us eat vegetables and fruits of plants only! We will live longer than the average lifespan.
It will be a time of peace, security and prosperity. Though the prophecy spoke of God's chosen ones, meaning there will be people who will not be chosen by God.
will not toil in vain
How will we know that God is with us this time?
they call I will answer;
This is the time that God will answer our prayers.
Peace and prosperity, this is the era promised by God, it will happen if we will return to the true God.
What is the advantage of eating vegetables and fruits of plants?
then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel,
Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, "Please test your servants for ten days: Give us
nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then compare our appearance
with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in
accordance with what you see." So he agreed to this and tested them for ten
We leave you to ponder on this... If you want to have a long life, this is the way... it is up to you.

The Revelation of the Foreigner as mentioned by King Solomon in:
“As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your name— for they will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when he comes and prays toward this temple, then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name."
I Kings 8:41-43
