Shalom. Our chapter of study this morning is about leprosy. But rather than teach about leprosy, I prefer a study on health, excellent health. Thus the Title of our teaching is, EXCELLENT HEALTH. HOW DO WE GET IT?
So with that said, let’s read Leviticus 13.1-8.
The Bible says that Job was perfect and upright, and one that feared GOD and shunned evil. But because of satan, Job experienced great sickness and hardship and misery. GOD gave satan power to afflict Job with undeserved sickness and suffering in order to test Job’s righteousness, to know what was in his heart. Whether he would keep GOD’S Commandments or not. And Job responded to his great suffering by praising GOD, and refused to blaspheme The LORD, and he continued in his righteousness obeying The LORD’S Commandments.
And in time GOD healed Job and blessed him greatly.
Sickness and hardship may enter your life at times in order for GOD to test you, to see if you will obey His Commandments or not. GOD knows the answer before the test. DEUTERONOMY 8.1-3, JOB 5.17
However, from what I read in The Bible, sickness is the result of sin. Sin, as we know, is breaking GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses, 1 John 3.4. And Paul correctly writes, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD. Thus, establishing The Law of Moses in our life prevents us from sinning, giving us better health. ROMANS 3.23, 31
All that have walked on this earth have experienced sickness because all have sinned. Except One, Messiah Yeshua Who did no sin. And Messiah is GOD ALMIGHTY. ISAIAH 9.6, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5
The Laws of GOD that are written in The Law of Moses that came directly from the Mouth of The LORD to Moses, teach us that sickness and disease are the result of sin. And sin is breaking the Law of Moses. LEVITICUS 26.14-16, 1 JOHN 3.4
(Leviticus 26.15) Breaking GOD’S covenant is violating His Word and His Laws. That Covenant is made with Israel and all the world, and it never ends. Isaiah 43.10)
(Leviticus 26.16) Terror involves troubles. Consumption might be tuberculosis. And the burning ague is a burning fever, for not obeying GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.
The Bible tells of a certain man who had a horrible disease for thirty-eight years, and Yeshua healed him. And later, Messiah said to the man in The Temple, “Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto you.” Thus Yeshua said to the man, Don’t break The Law of Moses anymore lest a worse thing come unto you. JOHN 5.5-9, 14, I JOHN 3.4
Here’s a well-kept secret that’s hidden from most people, and it’s right out in the open, written in The Bible for everyone to see. But most Bible teachers and preachers hide it from their people for some reason. Maybe they don’t see it. Yeshua The Messiah, Jesus Christ in The Bible, instructed the People, and all who read The Bible, Do Not Break The Law of Moses, but rather live by The Law of Moses. Go and sin no more, Yeshua said. Live by The Law, all GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses. Those are the Words of Jesus Christ, and they are not taught. Why?
John, whose Hebrew name is Yochanan that means GOD is Gracious, teaches that sin is breaking the Law of Moses. I JOHN 3.4. And Jesus says, Go and sin No More.
How can we have better health, even excellent health? The Bible teaches that the fear of The LORD is the beginning of knowledge. The fear of GOD is to be exceedingly fearful of Him. The fear of GOD will make you obey The LORD. The fear of The LORD will make you learn His Laws and do them.
Yeshua said, “Don’t fear them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. But rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. And that knowledge is obeying GOD.
You can have excellent health throughout your life by fearing GOD, walking in all His ways, loving The LORD, serving The LORD with all your soul. Keeping His Commandments, Statutes, and Laws that are written in The Law of Moses for your good. For your health. And by so doing, GOD will give you excellent health. And with your faith in Messiah Yeshua for Atonement, GOD will give you eternal life in Heaven. PROVERBS 1.7, MATTHEW 10.28, DEUTERONOMY 10.12-13
The Bible often speaks of wisdom. Wisdom is revealed in the person who lives his or her life according to Torah, The Law of Moses. The Law of Moses is the Wisdom of GOD along with your Atonement in Messiah Yeshua.
The fear of The LORD is also the beginning of Wisdom. A beginning is a start. And Wisdom is The Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses. Now, learn The Law and do it. That is Wisdom, GODLY Wisdom. And GODLY Wisdom will bring you excellent health. PROVERBS 9.10, PROVERBS 3.1-8
(Proverbs 3.2) Peace in Hebrew is shalom. Shalom includes good health.
(Proverbs 3.8) Health to your navel is a cure for your body, and a medicine to your bones when you do not forget GOD’S Law of Moses, and keep His Commandments. That is wisdom and health.
What I tell you is no secret. Excellent health is available to everybody if they have ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart to understand. The Bible is full of the good news of health. The problem however is the lie that is so extensively taught to reject the Wisdom of GOD that is taught in The Law of Moses. Thus rejecting health, and peace, and atonement, and eternal Life. The false teaching that Christ did away with The Law on the cross is demonic. Read satan’s conversation with Eve in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 2 and 3, especially Genesis 3.1-4.
By rejecting GOD’S Word, which is His Law, you reject any relationship with GOD ALMIGHTY, Yeshua The Messiah. LUKE 8.19-21
The Word of GOD includes The Law of Moses.
Good health, even excellent heath come from obeying all GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses that GOD gave to the Jewish People for all mankind to live by, for their good, and for their health. And GOD ALMIGHTY is Yeshua The Messiah.
GOD’S Laws include His food laws written in Leviticus 11, and Deuteronomy 14. And His Sabbaths and Holy Days written in Leviticus 23. Yeshua said, man should live by every Word that proceeds out of The Mouth of GOD. And John writes, GOD’S Commandments are not difficult. MATTHEW 4.4, 1 JOHN 5.3, EXODUS 15.22-26
I find it, well, strange. Even odd that so many families in the Western world have Bibles in their homes and don’t know The Truth of GOD. Billions of Bibles are in billions of homes in North America, South and Central America, Europe, Russia. Add to that people in the Middle East, Africa, and the Far East. People all over the world have Bibles in their homes that were written by Jewish writers who have revealed the ways of GOD, and what GOD requires of them. Yet most people have no idea what The GOD of Creation requires of them.
Paul says that GOD has sent them a strong delusion that they should believe a lie.
Let’s read 2 THESSALONIANS 2.8-13
Those Jewish writers of The Bible have made publically known to the world, to all mankind every Rule, Teaching, Law and Instruction of GOD, all written in The Law of Moses, in the first five books of The Bible, for GOD’S human creation to follow for their good, for their health, for their atonement, for their salvation and their eternal Life. But with Bible in hand, too many people believe a strong delusion that Jesus Christ has abolished His own Law of Moses. Thus sickness, disease, pestilence, plagues, epidemics, floods, wars, and so on. Because of disobedience to GOD and His Law, Instructions and Teachings that are written in The Law of Moses.
Let’s read ISAIAH 53.5.
In this Chapter that prophesies Messiah Yeshua’s atoning death, Isaiah 53.5, teaches that Yeshua The Messiah was wounded for our transgressions. Meaning Messiah Yeshua was killed for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities, beaten for our sins. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him. Messiah Yeshua was punished for our iniquities, and killed for our Atonement. All The Plan Of GOD. And with His stripes we are healed, The LORD GOD says.
We are healed because His Atoning death atoned for our sins, and sin is sickness. Not doing GOD’S will, disobeying GOD’S Laws are a sickness. But now with Messiah’s Atonement, you are healed of your sickness of sin. Your life is new, and clean. And what does The LORD require of you? Repent. Turn to GOD and obey Him. And live your life according to The Will of GOD, according to His Laws, Teachings and Instructions that are written in the Law of Moses.
Unfortunately, most People are not taught The Will of GOD. The Will of GOD is obedience to His Laws that are written in The Law of Moses, along with your faith in The Messiah Yeshua. And by living according to The Will of GOD, The LORD Your GOD will give you better health, even excellent health, and peace, and salvation, and eternal Life in Heaven. By His stripes you are healed if you follow GOD’S Ways. EZEKIEL 18.21
The word “turn” in Hebrew, as in, “If the wicked (ungodly) will “turn” from all his sins”, is Shoov, meaning Repent.
PHILIPPIANS 2.12-16 The fear of The LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Belief in The Messiah Yeshua is the beginning of Salvation. Your walk with GOD begins. Your sins have been forgiven in Messiah Yeshua. Now you are ready to walk a new life with GOD. Repentance is required of you. Work out your own Salvation with fear and trembling. Obey His Law of Moses. Those are the words of Paul.
For it is GOD Who works in you to do His Will and Good Pleasure. His Will and Good Pleasure are for you to obey Moses, the Servant of GOD.
Good and excellent health are yours, along with Deliverance, Salvation and Eternal Life when you follow GOD’S Ways, and obey His Law, His Law of Moses.
Finally, why does the church reject GOD’S Sabbath on Saturday, the seventh day of the week, and replace GOD’S Sabbath with Sunday, or another day? There is no valid answer. The church is putting its huge membership in the face of death because The LORD says, “Whosoever does any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.” GENESIS 2.1-3, In the Ten Commandments, EXODUS 20.8-11, EXODUS 31.15, EXODUS 35.1-2
The Sabbath is Holy to The LORD, a Sabbath of rest to The LORD. On the seventh day, Saturday, GOD ended His work which He had made, and rested on the seventh day, Saturday. “Remember the Sabbath day, Saturday, The LORD says, to keep it Holy. In it you shall not do any work.” Yet the church rejects that Commandment also.
1 PETER 2.21-24 Peter, whose Hebrew name is Shimon, Matthew 4.18, teaches in The New Testament that Messiah Yeshua is our example that we should follow His steps, who did no sin.
Yeshua never eliminated the Saturday Sabbath. Nor did He abolish one Word, or one Letter from The Law of Moses. Since Jesus never abolished one Word or one Letter from The Law of Moses, why does the church abolish the entire Law?
What does The LORD require of you, but to fear The LORD your GOD, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve The LORD your GOD with all your heart, and with all your soul. To keep The Commandments of The LORD, and His Statutes that are written in The Law of Moses, for your good. For your health, even for your excellent health.
