Deu 14:3-6 Thou Shalt not eat any Abominable Thing

[Study Aired December 27, 2019]

Deu 14:3  Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.
Deu 14:4  These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,
Deu 14:5  The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.
Deu 14:6  And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat.

To eat anything abominable spiritually or inwardly is to listen, read and believe in anything that does not glorify Christ as the beginning and ending of all things.

Heb 13:10  We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

2Ti 2:16  But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
2Ti 2:17  And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
2Ti 2:18  Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

1Co 11:26  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.
1Co 11:27  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

1Co 10:1  Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
1Co 10:2  And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1Co 10:3  And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
1Co 10:4  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

1Co 10:31  Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

We can see by these scriptures the spiritual meaning of them. And so to with the animals that He describes as animals we may eat.

Deu 14:4-6 These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat, The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois. And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat.

Each animal that He points out, parts the hoof, cleaveth the cleft into two claws (hoofs), and chews the cud. The word “hoof” and “claws” are the same Hebrew word “par-saw” – H6541. God had the writers translate “hoof” as “claw” in this verse to blind the masses into thinking of claws instead of hooves in our society today.

Deu 14:6  And everyH3605 beastH929 that partethH6536 the hoof,H6541 and cleavethH8156 the cleftH8157 into twoH8147 claws,H6541 and chewethH5927 the cudH1625 among the beasts,H929 that ye shall eatH398.

The word is used in scripture 22 times and translated “hoof”, “hoofs” and “clovenfooted” 20 times and then translated “claws” 2 times. It is obvious that the right translation is “hoof”, “hoofs” and “clovenfooted”. The question then came to mind, “What’s the difference between “clovenhoof” or split hoof and a forked tongue? Both are split.” This is the difference between being cloven-tongued or forked tongue.

“As adjectives the difference between cloven and forked is that cloven is split or divided while forked is that splits into two or more directions, or parts.” – Wikidiff.

Although the tongue is cloven, or split, it is still going in the same direction, whereas a forked tongue goes in DIFFERENT directions; saying one thing one time and then contradicting yourself in the next sentence. They are opposites. The greatest example of this “forked” tongue is this saying, “I believe God is sovereign and rules over all things, but I have freewill.” This is the beginning of ALL FALSE DOCTRINE. In Acts chapter 2 it says that there appeared “cloven tongues” like as fire, and these cloven tongues SAT upon each of them.

Act 2:1  And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Act 2:2  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting [in one accord-going the same direction].
Act 2:3  And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them [Cloven tongues, not forked tongues. They were all speaking the same thing, going in the same direction].
Act 2:4  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Here we have the positive application of eating clean meat from clean “BEASTS”. The people represented the beasts that spoke words different from what they had ever heard and were all edified by it, because these beasts were clean beasts, spiritually. They represent the ox, the sheep, the goat, etc. that had a split hoof and chewed the cud. We have learned over the years that chewing the cud means meditating on the word, and this is true. When you think what cud is, it gives you a deeper and more spiritual application. To demonstrate what it means, we have to get in the “WEEDS” a little and eat, then meditate on what the words mean. Here is the word in action: “cheweth”H5927 [H8688] cud. Notice the number H8688? It means the following;

So, why does the ox, sheep or goat chew the cud? Because he is caused to do so. His nature causes him to chew the cud because God created him to do it. His cause is from God and God alone. He cannot eat meat, he can only eat what God has created him to eat. Are we talking about ox, sheep and goats? No, we are not. We are actually talking about mankind.

1Co 9:9  For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
1Co 9:10  Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.

This takes us back to our verses about what we are to eat. The eating is the devouring of the people themselves and what kind of food they are. Their glory is the grass, and they are the beasts. We chew on them, inwardly first, on ourselves and then outwardly.

1Pe 1:24  For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
1Pe 1:25  But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

We learn from chewing the cud on the grass of our glory, that it fades away and we meditate on these things day and night. Then from that we see the beast we have become and we kill it and eat it. We devour all that we had become by eating our own glory. We discuss night after night in studies about what we are, who we were and where we are going, all in one accord. This is a split hoof that is going in the same direction. We are split within ourselves by seeing what we are in nature, what God causes us to eat, then we see what we are in spirit and that we feed off our own flesh to understand the things of God. We feed on the beast that has fed on the grass, but what makes the beast a clean beast or an unclean beast, because we are all unclean beasts by Christ’s creation?

Rom 3:10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom 3:11  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
Rom 3:12  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Rom 3:13  Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: [forked tongue going in two different ways]
Rom 3:14  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
Rom 3:15  Their feet are swift to shed blood:
Rom 3:16  Destruction and misery are in their ways:
Rom 3:17  And the way of peace have they not known:
Rom 3:18  There is no fear of God before their eyes.

God and God alone creates us what we are and then has from before the world began, predestined that we be clean beasts upon which He feeds. We have no rights to claim what we are by His predetermined plan. I am what I am by the grace of God and for no other reason. My flesh is as unclean as every human that has ever walked this earth because as verse 12 says above; “together” we are unprofitable. Together, because we are the herds of the first Adam. We are what the first Adam is by God’s creation, an unclean beast that will eat the glory of his own lust to be his own god at all costs. So, again what causes this change? What did we do, or are we doing, that makes us a clean beast? Nothing of ourselves! God’s predestined plan has made us what we are, and we do what we do because the cause of our actions is God Himself –“Hiphil”H8818. We are what we are because God is my “I AM, THAT I AM”.

Exo 3:13  And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 
Exo 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Exo 3:15  And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

“I AM, THAT I AM” because Christ has created us to be what “I AM”. Christ has created us to live by the title of my Creator, and because He has predestined we live by the title of our Creator, we see what we see, we hear what we hear, and we EAT WHAT WE EAT – the life of Christ.  We feed on Christ and then we are able to chew the cud of the glory of man. The word of God in us eats up what man thinks he is by nature.

1Co 11:24  And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
1Co 11:25  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
1Co 11:26  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.

We feed on THE CLEAN, not the unclean works of the flesh. We have been given to see that to feed on the works of the flesh is turning the glory of the incorruptible God into an image like unto corruptible man and making the man the “I AM, THAT I AM”. This is what we all do “together” as a human race. We call what God has called unclean, clean and what He calls clean, unclean. But, we have received the Spirit of Christ, Who allows us to feed on the unclean by seeing these truths. When we see that we are unclean and from conception are sin, we can then feed on this beast as clean. Why? Because God has allowed us to learn from the unclean beast, what he thought he was and thereby feed on him.

Act 10:9  On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:
Act 10:10  And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
Act 10:11  And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:Act 10:12  Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 
Act 10:13  And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
Act 10:14  But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
Act 10:15  And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
Act 10:16  This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

Act 10:28  And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

These verses show us that eating the unclean and clean are one and the same. They are clean to the man of God. When I enter someone’s house, I look for things that will allow me or not allow me to share the truth to them. I try their words and feed on what they say. If their words are all about freewill and man’s way to salvation through his own works, I quote a verse and see their reaction. If it seems that God has given them ears to hear, I continue, but if they irritably reject the verses, I move on. However, I still have fed on them. Even though they are unclean in their doctrine, I have learned from them and therefore eaten them. We can learn a lot from all people and be taught of God from their words. We are being trained in this eon/age for the eon/age of the thousand-year reign. So, nothing is unclean of itself.

Rom 14:14  I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

Num 14:9  Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.

Our beasts within us are meat for us. We are as the eagles that feed upon the carcasses of the beasts.

Mat 24:28  For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

This verse, as with all verses, is to be taken inwardly first, then outwardly. We feed off the world now as we see what is coming on the world. They are screaming of a global warming phenomenon brought about by the hand of man. Yet they do not see that what they are saying is actually the fire of God’s word heating up spiritually, getting ready to be poured out on the entire world. There is a global warming because the flames of God’s wrath are heating up spiritually, to be poured out on the earth, but it not because we are burning too much plastic or to many cows are farting. It’s because the end of all things is eminent, and Christ is getting ready to descend from the heavens and rule this earth through His special people for a thousand symbolic years. Here again we have eaten from them and learned from them. They have become bread for us. Nothing is unclean of itself, all things are lawful, but we are not to be brought under the power of any.

Co 6:12  All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

People are meat for us, inwardly, then outwardly. They are unclean from creation, yet at the same time clean to the man of God who knows how to see them. When I go deer hunting and kill a deer, a cloven footed beast, I eat it. It smells, it’s messy cleaning it, and it’s a lot of work processing it. Yet although it makes my hands unclean from the butchering, it becomes clean for meat to eat. It starts off unclean and becomes clean. It starts off dirty and becomes clean. It starts off inedible and becomes edible. It starts off with a hairy covering, with dirt on it, and after I skin it, it is red as Adam, the first man.

Once its unclean covering is removed, it is stripped down to the meat, where it becomes edible. This is mankind as a whole. Once we strip the covering off, we see people for who they are and are able to feed on them. They become meat for us, the fowls.

Jer 7:33  And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.

We are those beasts and fowls that feed on the people in us and then on the people outwardly.

Rev 5:6  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Rev 5:7  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
Rev 5:8  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
Rev 5:9  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Rev 5:10  And hast made us [remember “Hiphil”-H8818-He is the causative action “made us”] unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth [We will reign because He has caused us to reign].

As we have read, nothing is unclean if we see it as God sees it. All things are lawful to eat if we are able to see that nothing can hurt us spiritually. I cannot take this verse and say I can eat poison literally because nothing can hurt me. It is meant to be taken spiritually.

Mar 16:17  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mar 16:18  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

These verse are not to be taken literally but spiritually. Then after we have seen them spiritually, we can see them literally in the thousand-year reign. Being in spiritual bodies during the thousand-year reign, these verses will apply literally. The split hoof also is a witness to the two witnesses in Revelation 11. Every day we are shown the witness of who we are in the flesh and who we are in the spirit. Every day the words of the prophets and the words of the law witness to what I was, am and will be.  Although different, we can see that all that we had ever done in the flesh was created by our Creator to bring about the witness of the Truth. Although they seem contrary to one another, they witness to the one truth; God is all in all and is bringing about His plan by BOTH. We cannot have one without the other because they are witnesses of each other. My flesh witnesses to the fact that I was created evil.

Rom 3:12  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

My spirit contrasts that fact by witnessing to the fact my new man was created sinless in Christ.

1Jn 3:9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1Jn 3:10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

From this witness we can see the truth of the world outwardly. The world goes on every day marrying and giving in marriage, having no clue to the impending destruction on the horizon. My new man sees it and knows that it is not global warming by the hands of man, but global warming by the hands of its Creator and the closeness of the impending wrath of God on all flesh. It’s warming up, but not because of burning too much plastic or too many cars, but because the wrath of God is eminent and the end of all flesh is at hand. Eating abominable things is eating the doctrines of the world and believing them. We can read of their doctrines for the purpose of exposing them but never for the purpose of validating them. We have just taken an abominable doctrine of global warming and used it to make it a clean meat of the impending wrath of God getting closer. We can see what they cannot see, we can hear what they cannot hear, and this is the witness of the two witnesses.

Rev 11:3  And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days [first 1260 days], clothed in sackcloth. [em>witness (2) of the completion of the flesh (10) for all mankind (10x10x10=1000)from all generations (60)]
Rev 11:4  These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Rev 11:5  And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies(the word of God in our mouth is the fire, [Jer 5:14): and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.]
Rev 11:6  These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
Rev 11:7  And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless [end of the thousand years, Rev 20:7] pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. [Rev 20:8, 9]
Rev 11:8  And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Rev 11:9  And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half [second 1260 days = 7 – complete], and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Rev 11:10  And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Rev 11:11  And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Rev 11:12  And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Rev 11:13  And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand [3 1/2 + 3 1/2= 7, completion:] and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Rev 11:14  The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

There is a global warming up of all nations. But, it is not because of human overconsumption, but because the end of this eon/age is drawing near and the ushering in of the next eon, the thousand-year reign is near. We are going through our wrath now and will be used to deliver the wrath of God on those during the thousand-year reign, where all the last vestiges of mankind will be put to death.

Rom 2:5  But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

Rom 5:9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

Eph 2:3  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 

Col 3:6  For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

1Th 1:10  And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Rev 6:16  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 
Rev 6:17  For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Rev 19:15  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 

We have taken the unclean and made it clean by seeing it through the Light of life, Jesus Christ. We are eating the flesh and blood of Christ by seeing what flesh and blood cannot see. What we see is what God has predestined we see and walk in, to His glory. The earth is heating up naturally to point to the spiritual. Man is scared of global warming caused by man, instead of the closeness of the wrath of God that is being prophesied in literal spiritual global warming. I found myself, in the flesh, disputing the false doctrine of global warming by the hands of man, with the argument that the earth goes through cycles. Then I heard this verse;

2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 

I found myself refuting their false doctrine by saying similar things, and in fact their doctrine is a false doctrine. However, I failed to see that when it was prophesied that Christ was born, it was by the “mag-os’ “G3097;

Mat 2:1  Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men (mag-os’) from the east to Jerusalem,
Mat 2:2  Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

So, it was not the elect that saw the coming at first, but magicians, sorcerers. Those today screaming of a global warming by man consuming to much fuels and such are ignorant of the true warming up of the wrath of God. They are like the mag-os’ declaring the birth of Christ, yet not knowing where to look for Him.

Mat 2:2  Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

They knew He was born but did not know where to look for Him. Use that principle today. They are afraid of the end of the earth because man is using too much fossil fuel, but they are unaware that the wrath of God is breathing down their necks. I’m not saying all this as an advocate for global warming, but for us to see that the wrath of God is heating up, and maybe it is showing itself in the natural. In any case, we can learn from it all and be more prepared for when that day comes;

1Co 15:46  Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
