IN Western and Islamic countries eating of Non-veg like Mutton, Chicken or beef is a normal phenomena. But in Eastern countries it is restricted to some groups of people. Brahmins, Jains, etc. do not eat mutton because of their relegious beliefs. But what the creator God tells in Bible about eating of flesh.
When Adam and Eve, the first couple, were created, they were allowed to eat only vegetables and fruits and no flesh.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
BUT even with the vegeterian food people became very big sinners and God was sorry that He had made man on earth.
Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
THOUGH it is not specifically said I suppose the severe sins include killing of animals and men and eating them. Because immediately after the flood, God allowed men to eat animals, birds and all creatures except men but without blood, as soul is present in blood.
“Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs. But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of man.
“ Whoever sheds man’s blood,
By man his blood shall be shed;
For in the image of God
He made man.
And as for you, be fruitful and multiply;
Bring forth abundantly in the earth
And multiply in it.”
THIS system will continue till return of Jesus Christ and establishing His kingdom on this earth. When He will rule in this earth, the capital being Jerusalem, NO man or animal present on earth in his physical body will eat flesh, s said in Isaiah 11:1-10.
1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
2 The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
3 His delight is in the fear of the LORD,
And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
4 But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,
And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins,
And faithfulness the belt of His waist.
6 “ The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
The leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
The calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little child shall lead them.
7 The cow and the bear shall graze;
Their young ones shall lie down together;
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole,
And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD
As the waters cover the sea.
10 “ And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse,
Who shall stand as a banner to the people;
For the Gentiles shall seek Him,
And His resting place shall be glorious.”
AS a matter of fact God decided to bringforth Hiskind and He made everything for His kids, that is us.
“just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,”
WHATEVER God made Angels, Sun, moon, Earth, stars, Animals, Birds, Fish and everything He made are for His kids. Whoever believes in Jesus will become sons and daughters of God.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
THE creator God Jesus Christ, said in Mark 7:18-23 that by eating anything men cannot be defiled.
So He said to them, “Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?” And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”
HEAVEN is the house of God. No Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Jain, Budh etc. will enter heaven. But the sons & daughters of God. To become son of God we have to accept His son, as our Lord & Saviour. AsJesus said:
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”
PETER said : “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
SO not eating, or eating of Mutton, chicken or beef does not make us pure, but blood of Jesus:
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
THOSE who received Jesus as his personal saviour & Lord, and washed their sins by blood of Jesus, they are sons of God and will ONLY enter into heanen! God Bless!
