“God created food to be a blessing not a curse; to heal not to destroy; to bring health not sickness.”
Silently He hovered over a formless empty world, as a painter would stand before a blank piece of canvas. He focused all wisdom and creativity, opened His mouth and birthed an explosion of matter and energy.
Let there be, echoed throughout the universe, bathing all it touched in brilliant color. God poured Himself out, and then finished, He looked over His labor of love. With joy He signed his name and decreed, all that I have made is very good!
God looked within, reflected upon His own character, and created man in His own image (Gen 1:27). Bending down on hands and knees, He picked up handfuls of dust and meticulously formed a head, arms and legs. With foreknowledge of the joy and suffering this act would bring, God pressed His lips against man’s and breathed into its lungs the Spirit of Life.
The first thing Adam knew were the eternal eyes of his Maker. His Provider who would nourish him spiritually and physically. Creating a garden with trees bearing lush fruit, God said, 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 (Gen. 1:29). The breath of the living God sustained in Adam by living food. A glorious world, unmarred with sickness, disease and death.
Satan watched in horror as the black universe was lit up with the brightness of God’s perfection. In spite of the dark pride in his heart, he bowed his head, humbled by the display of his Enemy’s raw power. Suns and planets bursting into brilliant light all around him. Light devouring darkness.
Envy consumed him. Satan wants to be God. Everything he does springs from that desire. He hated the beauty of what God had made, especially man and woman, for they were created in the image of his Enemy.
And so began the ancient drama. Adam and Eve making the fatal mistake of eating from the hand of their enemy. Satan became man’s new Master and Provider. A mastership that could not be broken except by the death of the Painter’s Son.
Today Satan has an agenda for mankind's absolute domination. One look at this world and it would appear that he has achieved his goal. Our hospitals are filled with people in pain and suffering. Billions of dollars are spent in search for answers to rampant health problems plaguing the planet. Yet disease marches on at an alarming rate. Food is spiked with poisonous preservatives and additives. Farmers forced to be competitive under world–economic pressures, load the soil with chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. God appointed man to be steward of creation. Man has bitterly failed.
God created food to be a blessing not a curse; to heal not to destroy; to bring health not sickness.
Remnants of Eden can be still be found buried within the earth. The humble carrot displays the character of God. Beta–carotene, vitamin C, folic acid, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, enzymes, and a wealth of trace minerals. All insuring a body vibrant with life. The nutrients in food was no accident, but by grand design. And it’s available for those who are able to break free from addiction and eat the way God intended. Right here on earth table of provision has been prepared for us in the presence of our Enemy.
