Reflection

For a better understanding let’s see the previous verses; verse 2-3 “These liars have lied so well and for so long that they’ve lost their capacity for truth. They will tell you not to get married.

They’ll tell you not to eat this or that food—perfectly good food God created to be eaten heartily and with thanksgiving by believers who know better! Everything God created is good, and to be received with thanks. (MSG)

These liars are those who the Holy Spirit spoke about in verse 1 saying; in the last days they’ll leave their faith and follow after evil doctrines.

In the Old Testament, God indeed forbade the children of Israel from certain foods which He called unclean to them.

I know there are still some churches here in Nigeria that still forbids members from eating certain foods, calls them sinful; like pig meat, crayfish, and many more.

But in the New Testament nothing is to be forbidden as long as it is received with thanksgiving.

Remember the revelation of Peter in Acts 10:11-15 concerning the unclean beasts.

Prayer

Dear God,

May I never depart from the faith to follow after evil doctrines. Let you fire continue to burn in my heart.

And the light of your Word keep shining always to guide and direct me to the right path always. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
