“18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19Whose end is destruction, whose god is their BELLY, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)” ~Philippians 3:18-19
It’s no secret that Israel (So-called Black, Latino, and Native American Indians people)loves to eat! Unfortunately, this is used against us. That “love” to eat, has developed a habit of living to eat, rather than eating to live. Just one of many ways, the enemy has found to destroy us, but this one is through the gut. I have mentioned in past articles to stay on your toes when it comes to being aware of harmful ingredients in the foods of today. Well get your list out and ready, because it’s about to get longer! To all my Sisters, please add the following;
1. BHA/ BHT/ BQHT
Butylated Hydroxanisole and Hydroytoluene are two synthetic created chemicals commonly used to keep oil or fat from going rancid, or to preserve. It is used in embalming fluid, pharmaceutical drugs, and cosmetics, but sometimes found in chewing gum, buttery spread, beer, processed meats, cereal, and snack foods. In major studies rats were given these preservatives which caused stunted growth, weight loss, liver, kidney, and testicle damage, elevated blood cholesterol levels, and baldness. Further more, the offspring of these rats were born without eyes and showed signs of brain complications.
2. Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)
It is used as a flame retardant in industrial products, however it is also used in soft drinks mainly of citrus flavor. It is vegetable oil driven from soybeans or corn, and chemically bonded with bromine. Bromine is a chemical element like fluorine, chlorine, and iodine. Together producing BVO. It acts as an emulsifier. When used in citrus soft drinks, it causes a clear appearance. It keeps the citrus oils from floating up to surface which makes the appearance in drinks look cloudy. When consumed it builds up with the body, causing neurological problems like paranoia/ behavior disorders, headaches and memory loss. Also depresses the central nervous system causing fatigue, loss of muscle control/ nerve damage, and even ulcers within the stomach.
3. Sodium Nitrite and Nitrate
It is a synthetic mineral salt mainly used in processed meats to help keep meat from turning grey and prevents botulism. however Nitrate has been linked to causing cancer.
4. Propyle Gallate
It is a white odorless powder that is sometime use with BHA/BHT to keep oils or fat from oxidation, and has also be linked to causing cancer. Studies on rates with this ingredient in their rate feed, showed formation of tumors. This ingredient is commonly used in pesticides, some lipsticks, chewing gum, and food.
5. Sulfites/ Sodium Bisulfite/ Sulfur Dioxide
It destroys the nutrient benefit in food its used in. Sulfites is mostly use in dried fruit to keep color from naturally altering, and also used to keep liquids sterile.
6. Castoreum (Listed as: “Natural Flavors, or Food Additives” in the ingredient label)
Extract driven from the beavers caster sacs, which is located in two cavities under the beavers skin between the pelvis and base of the tail. It is used to enhance the flavor, appearance, and smell of the product or food its in.
“29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, 30 And the ferret, and chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. 31 These are unclean unto you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the evening” ~Leviticus 11:29-31
Please Note: The beaver is a rodent, as those mentioned in the precept above.
If you do your own research you will discover research studies indicating that these ingredient in small amounts wont cause harm. But if you consider the daily diet of our young generation, and even adults, it consist of food with these ingredients. Most of the popular foods and snacks consumed by your average teenager is consumed daily, therefore, getting a daily dosage or more of poison. Don’t forget, one single snack may contain more than one of the poisonous ingredients. Be wise and have greater concern for what you feed your temple. Because the enemy is looking exterminate you!
2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: ~Psalms 83:2-5
The whole world is defiled, but the faithful effort to keep your diet circumspect is what’s sincere and undefiled. Be more aware, and prudent. Never just take anyone’s word for it, not even mine. Your soul, and in this case, overall health depends of YOU ultimately. Conform your mindset to survive. We as a people have survived things that no other nationality of people can, yet we are destroying ourselves by obeying that god within the belly. Food for thought, if you concern is about cost and budget, you are spending way more money on a slow death. Be wiser, just keep food simple!
“A cheerful and good heart will have a care of his meat and diet.” ~Ecclesiasticus 30:25
