Our body, like our automobile, was designed by its creator to run on a certain grade or type of fuel. Our body like our automobile has a place for fuel to enter the body (our mouth is the entrance to our bodies fuel tank), just like our automobile has a place for fuel (fuel cap) to enter the fuel tank.
Each time we pull up to those gas pumps at the gas station with our automobile, we have a choice as to what kind of fuel we fill our gas tank with (diesel or grade of gas), just like we have a choice to make as to what kind of fuel we place into our body’s fuel tank every time we pull up to the table.
Just like our choice of fuel for our automobile determines how well our automobile will run, our choice of food determines how well our body will run.
Low octane and contaminated fuel will affect how our automobile will run, and the same is true if we put low octane or contaminated fuel (food) into our body.
Here at Hallelujah Acres we know what type of fuel (FOOD) our bodies were designed to run on because we believe what God told us what that proper fuel was in the Bible in Genesis 1:29, where we read:
“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb (VEGETABLE) bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the FRUIT of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food (FUEL).”
Fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts, all foods that originate in the garden were the foods God designed our bodies to be fueled with and to run on. For the past 38 plus years, these have been the only fuels I personally have nourished my body with.
I have avoided the Standard American Diet like the plague, knowing the world’s Standard American Diet contains things that would harm my body.
God created our bodies (See Genesis 2:7), and it only makes good common sense that the Creator of our bodies would know better than anyone else what the proper fuel was for our bodies to run on. And He told us in Genesis 1:29, in very easy to understand words, what that fuel was – FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, SEEDS AND NUTS.
Each Meal Is A Choice
At each meal we have the choice of placing into our bodies the fuel God designed our bodies to run on or we have the choice of placing into our bodies the world’s fuel: The Standard American Diet (SAD). Rhonda prefers to label the SAD acronym Satan’s Alternative Diet!
When we place into our body God’s Genesis 1:29 fuel, our bodies run as designed by God, full of energy and in good health.When we place into our bodies the fuel the world promotes, the Standard American Diet, the fuel God did not design our bodies to run on, we experience fatigue and all sorts of physical problems.
I like the verse found in Deuteronomy 30:19 regarding this thought:
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you LIFE and DEATH, BLESSING and CURSING: therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both thou and thy seed may live.”
Why The SAD Is So Dangerous
Why is the Standard American Diet, the diet that most people in America consume at least three times a day, so dangerous and the cause of most physical problems? Let’s look at what the Standard American Diet is comprised of:
If you were to list the factors that increase the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, intestinal disorders – in fact just about all illnesses as well as overweight issues – the Standard American Diet includes them all:
- High in animal fats
- High in unhealthy fats and saturated, hydrogenated, trans-fats
- Low in fiber
- High in processed foods
- Low in complex carbohydrates
- Low in plant based foods
It is interesting to note that in cultures that eat the reverse of the Standard American Diet – a diet that is low in fat, high in complex carbohydrates, high in plant-based foods, high in fiber diets – the people experience lower incidences of cancers and coronary disease and they are slim and trim.
What is even sadder is that countries, like the United States, who can afford to eat the healthiest disease-preventing foods – don’t!
The United States has spent more money on cancer research and the treating of cancer than any country in the world, yet the Standard American Diet is the primary cause of the very diseases we spend so much on trying and prevent and treat.
Current State of Health
For a moment let’s take a look at our country’s current state of health as a result of fueling our bodies with the Standard American Diet. Taken from the Statistical Abstract of the United States, as published by the U. S. Department of Commerce:
- Cardiovascular disease affects 80% of all Americans
- 33% all Americans develop cancer and it is projected to reach 50%
- Over 6.5 million Americans suffer from diabetes
- 77% of adults suffer from arthritis and rheumatic disorders
- Over 25 million Americans sufferer with asthma, bronchitis, or emphysema
- 15 million suffer from ulcers
- 10 million are migraine suffers
- 80 million suffer from allergies
- 22 million suffer from mental illness
- 98.5% suffer with bad teeth and 31 million have no teeth at all
- Some 70% are overweight and 80 million are classified as obese
- Nearly 90% of our children cannot pass a minimum physical fitness test
As I did a word search in the Bible for verses containing the word “WEAPON”, I found two verses that perked my interest and I believe have a lot to do with the solution to most of our physical and psychological problems:
“No WEAPON that is formed against thee shall prosper.”
~ Isaiah 54:17
“WISDOM is better than WEAPONS of war.”
~ Ecclesiastes 9:18
My Personal Experience with The Standard American Diet
I was born on February 12, 1934. Until 1976, a period of approximately 42 years, I consumed the world’s Standard American Diet. What was the result of my consuming the world’s Standard American diet for these many years?
By the age of 42, my body was filled with physical problems that included, but not limited to:
- severe allergies
- severe sinus problems
- high blood pressure
- poor eyesight
- poor teeth
- frequent colds
- frequent headaches
- frequent stomach upset
- flu every year
- … and at the age of 42, I was told I had colon cancer
As these various physical problems manifested throughout my life, no one ever suggested to me that my diet might have something to do with causing these physical problems.
But in 1976 after being told I had colon cancer, I went searching for a way, other than the medical approach way of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation (which had caused the death of my mother after she had been diagnosed with colon cancer before my experience with colon cancer).
In my search for a non-medical approach of dealing with my colon cancer, an evangelist in Texas by the name of Lester Roloff encouraged me to change my diet – from the Standard American Diet of this world that I had been on for the previous 42 years of my life, to God’s Genesis 1:29 diet as found in the Bible.
Almost immediately after switching from the Standard American Diet and onto God’s Genesis 1:29 diet, I started to get well.
Within one year of making the diet change my cancer was gone as was my hypoglycemia, hemorrhoids’, allergies, sinuses, high blood pressure, fatigue, pimple outbreaks, my eyesight was improved, and for the past 38 years, on this same Genesis 1:29 diet, I have not experienced as much as a cold, headache, sore throat, upset stomach or the flu.
Let’s Review Those Bible Verses…
“No WEAPON that is formed against thee shall prosper” and “Wisdom is better than WEAPONS of war.”
If you are a Christian, you KNOW that we each have an adversary – the Bible refers to this adversary as the “devil”. One of our adversary’s primary functions is to frustrate and if possible destroy the work of the Lord.
I personally believe that one of our adversary’s greatest tools is to weaken and prematurely destroy the physical bodies (temples) of God’s people so that they cannot effectively do the work of the Lord.
What better way to accomplish this than to get God’s people to consume foods that are harmful to their physical body temples!
Thirty-eight years ago, a WEAPON of mass destruction had been formed against me and I was about to take my last gasp for life. But God used Brother Roloff to come to my rescue by sharing with me WISDOM as to how to properly nourish my physical body by simply getting off the Standard American Diet, and getting onto God’s Genesis 1:29 diet.
This “WISDOM” shared with me by Brother Roloff, gave me the tools to overcome the “WEAPON” the devil had “FORMED AGAINST ME”, and proved to me that “WISDOM IS BETTER THAN WEAPONS OF WAR!”
Hallelujah Acres is a Christian Ministry that teaches Health from a Biblical perspective! Hallelujah Acres is trying to help the Christian community (as well any anyone else who will listen) realize that God’s Original Genesis 1:29 diet was God’s perfect plan for the proper nourishment of his human creation.
