Why Villagers Kill Many Africans, Rino Omokri
The question that worries many people when they read Scripture is how the ancients could have lived for so long. Satan uses questions like these to undermine the faith of many people by appealing to their natural senses, which postulate that it is biologically impossible for humans to live as long as the ancients lived, and that since this is scientifically proven, then this means that Scripture is inaccurate.
But the devil is a liar. Scripture is infallible, and it is the word of God, and as we search the scriptures, we will find life and truth.
So why did man once live for a very long time, and why do we not live as long as we once did?
Have you ever wondered why the animals in the Garden of Eden never posed a physical threat to Adam and Eve, or why the wild animals that Noah kept in the Ark never attacked him and his family?
If this question has ever crossed your mind, I pray that you will find the answers in Scripture today.
You see, we live in a falling world. We do not live in a fallen world. What I mean? When man fell in the Garden of Eden, our fall was not a one-day event or business. The fall of man was a journey and it was progressive. This means that over time, the world and man fell deeper and deeper. The fall of man occurs constantly, until the return of Christ.
In physics this is known as
The second law of thermodynamics, in short, entropy (the degree of disorder) increases over time.
You see, in the beginning, God did not create humans and animals as natural enemies, attacking and killing each other to feed themselves. In Eden, and even after the fall of man, both man and animals were created by vegetarians. Don’t take my word for it. Let Scripture convince you:
Genesis 1:29 refers to humanity:
“Then God said:“ I give you all the SEED PLANTS on the face of the whole earth and EVERY TREE on which there is FRUIT with seeds. They will be yours for ONE. “
Genesis 1:30 refers to animals:
“And to all the beasts of the earth, and to all the birds of the air, and to all creatures moving on the earth – everyone who has the breath of life – I give every green plant for food.” And so it was. “
God made the distinction between food for humans and food for animals in that man was to eat only fruits and vegetables containing SEEDS. At the same time, animals were allowed to eat fruits and vegetables, regardless of whether they had seeds or not.
And when this world ends and everything is restored in heaven, the unnatural enmity between man and animals will disappear. And we see this in Isaiah’s prophecy about God’s Kingdom:
“The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie with the goat, calf, lion and lamb together; and the child will lead them. ” – Isaiah 11: 6.
Yes, Genesis 4: 2 teaches us that Cain raised livestock. But he didn’t eat them. They were sacrificed to animals, which was normal after man was sent from Eden.
From Genesis 1 to Genesis 9, you will not find a single verse where a person or animal would eat meat.
So why did humans and animals start eating meat?
Genesis 9: 3 gives us the answer. This verse says:
“Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. As I gave you green plants, NOW I give everything to you. “
Pay attention to the word “NOW”. God allowed man and animals to eat meat, because the worldwide flood that occurred at the time of Noah destroyed all vegetation on Earth. And it took the Earth a while to grow. Noah and his sons were the first group of people to taste meat.
You will notice something. Noah and his ancestors lived an unusually long time. It was only after Noah and his sons started eating meat that their lifespan was shortened. Let me give my readers a few examples.
Adam lived for 930 years. His son Seth lived for 912 years. Enos, son of Set, lived for 905 years. Enos’s son Kenan lived for 910 years. Kenan’s son Mahalalel lived for 895 years. Mahalalel’s son Jared lived 962 years. The son of Jared, Enoch, lived 365 years, but did not die. He was taken to heaven alive. Enoch’s son, Methuselah, lived for 969 years (the man with the longest life in history). Methuselah’s son Lamech lived for 777 years. Lamech was the father of Noah. Noah lived to be 950 years old.
You can find this information in chapter 5 of Genesis.
Now let’s quickly get to Genesis 11. After this man began eating meat, Shem, the son of Noah, lived 500 years, which is half the life of his father. His son Arfaxad lived for 403 years. The son of Arfaxad Shel also lived 403 years. Ever, the son of Shela, lived for 430 years. Ebert’s son Feleg lived for 209 years. Peleg’s son Reu lived for 207 years. Reu Serug’s son lived for 200 years. Serug’s son Nahor lived for 119 years. Nahor gave birth to Terah, the father of Abraham.
So, you can see that it was AFTER the person started eating meat that we began to live shorter and shorter.
Talk to your doctor and he will tell you that if you want to live a long and healthy life, you need to stop eating or reduce your consumption of meat, especially red meat.
What makes meat red? Blood. What does Scripture tell us about blood?
“Make sure you don’t eat blood, because blood is life and you don’t need to eat life with flesh.” – Deuteronomy 12:23
In the New Testament, the disciples gave us Gentiles only four laws to keep. You can find them below:
“Refrain from what is offered to idols, from BLOOD, from suffocation and from sexual immorality. If you keep track of these things, you will be fine. ” – Acts 15:29.
In Japan, the country with the highest life expectancy in the world, eating any type of meat has been banned for centuries. Please find it. Don’t take my word for it
It was forbidden to eat meat in Japan until 1872, when Emperor Meiji lifted the ban. However, even after the ban was lifted, the Japanese still rarely consume red meat. Asians generally consume more fish than meat, but especially the Japanese consume much more fish than other Asian countries. And they don’t just eat fish, they tend to eat it raw. This is the secret of their longevity.
If you want to live a long, healthy and happy life, your chances are increased (but not guaranteed) if you can only eat fruits and vegetables and fish for animal protein. And not only fish and vegetables. Eat organic fruits and vegetables.
Think of Daniel. Daniel 1: 8 states:
“Daniel set himself the goal of not DISTORTING THE ROYAL MEAT.”
Daniel was a vegetarian. Daniel 1:12 says:
“Please test your servants for ten days: give us nothing but VEGETABLES for food and water for drinking.”
Daniel 1:15 says:
“At the end of ten days they looked healthier and better fed than all the young men who ate the royal food.”
They are proof of Daniel’s word. I do not eat meat. I only eat organic fruits and vegetables. I eat fish and seafood. However, I am stronger and healthier than my meat-eating blood brother, despite the fact that I am 10 years older than him. Travel the world with me. I run for an hour every day. Lasts 30 minutes and is for rent.
I never get sick, even if my brother gets sick from time to time. Health insurance is spent on me. Not trying to be in vain, physically I am doing well, although in two months I will turn 47.
Follow the word of God. Eat and live as you are told. “This will be the health of your navel and the marrow of your bones.” – Proverbs 3: 8.
Both on earth and in heaven, God did not want food to be just physical food. He wanted and still believes that food was primarily medicine.
This is why Ezekiel 47:12 says:
“Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both sides of the river. Their leaves will not wither and the fruits will not disappear. They will bear fruit every month as the water of the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruits will be used for food, and the leaves for HEALING. “
With regard to heaven, we read the following in Revelation 22: 2:
“In the middle of a big city street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, which bore twelve harvests of fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree for the healing of the nations. “
You will notice that Christ ate twice after his resurrection. And both times he ate only fish.
Let’s take a look at the first example in Luke 24: 42-43:
“They gave him a piece of fried fish. [k]and several hundred. And he took it and ate in their presence. “
Let’s look at the second case in John 21:13:
“Then Jesus came and took bread and gave them to them, and also fish.”
If the doctor tells you that you will die next month, you will be reconciled with God and people and begin to live well. But one day we will all die. No one is promised tomorrow. Why wait until health fails?
Last year I visited 32 countries, many of which were in Africa. I thought it was only in Nigeria that we believed that “village people” could kill city dwellers. My travels to Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique disappointed my mind and taught me that she was a black African.
I have seen black Africans eat so much red meat and a higher carbohydrate diet. I saw these people getting into cars and being driven by motorists. I saw them go home, where the servants do all the physical work for them and their families.
They never played sports, the only thing they, as Christians or Muslims, tended to do in excess was to pray.
And when they have a stroke or heart attack, their families never, ever blame their lifestyle. They are always people from the village.
Meanwhile, the Scripture says;
“Do not be deceived, God will not be mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For he who sows to the flesh of the flesh will reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. ” – Galatians 6: 7-8.
