Do you know what it takes to keep sickness away? From 1975 to 1981 I heard a well known evangelist that had 6 orphanages. Lester Roloff was loved by many. People loved to hear him sing in spite of the fact that he could not carry a tune.
I remember helping one of my preacher boys take a prostitute from the street in Detroit and sending her to Roloff’s for rehabilitation. That girl is now married to a graduate from Roloff’s that is a pastor of a church.
The only thing that people did not like about Roloff was when he used the scriptures to preach on God’s nutritional plan to stay healthy.
One pastor of a church in upstate NY always love Roloff but ignored what he said about food in the Bible until he came down with colon cancer in 1976 after watching his mother die of the same thing. Then he called Lester Roloff for advice. That pastor’s name is George Malkmus. He followed the advice, conquered the cancer and has not been sick since and he is just shy of 80 years old.
I have heard messages on Daniel chapter one where the preacher only talked about conviction but not nutrition. I believe that if you want to have a close relationship with the Lord in your later years it requires a clear mind and that comes from doing like Daniel.
God’s original diet for man
“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb 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 meat.” Genesis 1:29
8 ¶ But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Daniel 1
It is most interesting to note that the book that has the most significant prophecies in all of the Bible came through a man that went back to the original diet. God doesn’t harp on this truth but wants us to be healthy through obedience to His word.
“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26
150-250 years ago in America the main text book was the Bible for:
- History which is His story
Did you know that one man 800 years ago studied Genesis chapter one and discovered quantum physics and things that it took millions of dollars and many physics majors to confirm?
I will write more on this subject tomorrow. I know that I am on unfriendly ground writing on such a subject even with those who have dedicated their body as a living sacrifice are not willing to sacrifice their traditional American diet for God’s no sickness and long life diet.
