Is Dietary Kosher Law New Covenant or Not?


This writing is will help you understand Dietary Law, that is to say what is Kosher, and what is not, and how, and if it still applies, and to whom.

 We will take a look at this issue from Both Old, and New Covenants says about Dietary Law, and why it was given.
We will also take a look a what the New Covenant says about This topic.
So let us now start where it all began



Leviticus 11:1 And YHWH spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
Leviticus 11:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
Leviticus 11:3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is cloven-footed, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
Leviticus 11:4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

Leviticus 11:12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
Leviticus 11:13  And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the osprey,
Leviticus 11:14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
Leviticus 11:15 Every raven after his kind;
Leviticus 11:16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckoo, and the hawk after his kind,
Leviticus 11:17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

Leviticus 11:21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;
Leviticus 11:22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
Leviticus 11:23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
Leviticus 11:24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcass of them shall be unclean until the even.
Leviticus 11:25 And whosoever beareth aught of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
Leviticus 11:26 The carcasses of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not cloven-footed, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.
Leviticus 11:27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcass shall be unclean until the even.
Leviticus 11:28 And he that beareth the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,
Leviticus 11:30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.
Leviticus 11:31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.
Leviticus 11:32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.
Leviticus 11:33 And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.
Leviticus 11:34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.
Leviticus 11:35 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcass falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcass shall be unclean.
Leviticus 11:37 And if any part of their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.
Leviticus 11:38 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcass fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the carcass thereof shall be unclean until the even.

Leviticus 11:41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
Leviticus 11:42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
Leviticus 11:43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.
Leviticus 11:44 For I am YHWH your Elohim: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Leviticus 11:45 For I am YHWH that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
Leviticus 11:46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:
Leviticus 11:47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

YHWH's Word is very clear as to what is clean, and unclean Deuteronomy also explains what is clean, and unclean.

Deuteronomy 14:1 Ye are the children of YHWH your Elohim: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.
Deuteronomy 14:2 For thou art a holy people unto YHWH thy Elohim, and the YHWH hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
Deuteronomy 14:3 Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.
Deuteronomy 14:4 These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,
Deuteronomy 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.
Deuteronomy 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.
Deuteronomy 14:7 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you.
Deuteronomy 14:8 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.
Deuteronomy 14:9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
Deuteronomy 14:10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.
Deuteronomy 14:11 Of all clean birds ye shall eat.
Deuteronomy 14:12 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the osprey,
Deuteronomy 14:13 And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind,
Deuteronomy 14:14 And every raven after his kind,
Deuteronomy 14:15 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckoo, and the hawk after his kind,
Deuteronomy 14:16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,
Deuteronomy 14:17 And the pelican, and the gier-eagle, and the cormorant,
Deuteronomy 14:18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
Deuteronomy 14:19 And every creeping thing that flieth is unclean unto you: they shall not be eaten.
Deuteronomy 14:20 But of all clean fowls ye may eat.
Deuteronomy 14:21 Ye shall not eat of any thing that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou art a holy people unto YHWH thy Elohim. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
Deuteronomy 14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
Deuteronomy 14:23  And thou shalt eat before YHWH thy Elohim, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear YHWH thy Elohim always.
Deuteronomy 14:24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which YHWH thy Elohim shall choose to set his name there, when YHWH thy Elohim hath blessed thee:
Deuteronomy 14:25 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which YHWH thy Elohim shall choose:
Deuteronomy 14:26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before YHWH thy Elohim, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,
Deuteronomy 14:27 And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.
Deuteronomy 14:28 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates:
Deuteronomy 14:29 And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that YHWH thy Elohim may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.

YHWH's Word is very clear as to what is clean, and unclean.

I have heard it said that the Levitical law has been done away with. If this is the case why would the same people teach tithing?
Clearly Yeshua teaches that the Law will NOT pass until EVERYTHING IS COMPLETE!
That is when there will be a New Heaven, and a New earth.

Now to see if it still applies to this day.


1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
Sin is a transgression of the Law, and to say that there is not law you would have to say that there is no sin, and if you believe that you only need to take a brief look outside, and on the evening news, to realize that sin is rampant.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of YHWH.
This is a quote from...
Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the YHWH doth man live.

"EVERY WORD" that proceeds out of the mouth of YHWH is given in the Torah.

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
Yeshua did not come to do away with the law, but to place the law in our hearts. He does this by placing his spirit in our hearts.
Matthew 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
KJV
Heaven, and Earth has not yet passed, because Yeshua has not yet returned.
Yeshua came to complete the law about what was written about his coming.
These things are written about him in the Old Testament.

Here it is pay attention...
Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

This is what Yeshua was talking about in Matthew 5:18
for the "first heaven and the first earth were passed away"

Without the Law / Torah we have nothing to follow for guidance, and with no law there is only chaos.


Malachi 3:6 For I am YHWH, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

 Sense YHWH does not change there is a big problem with understanding that Yeshua did away with the law.
The ONLY reason that Yeshua came was so that many might be saved, with the shedding of his blood is to wash away our Sins, NOT to wash away the law.
Hebrews 13:8 Yeshua the Messiah the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
Yeshua does not change either, and we are to follow Him, why would you think we would do any differently?


Jonh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.
YHWH equates Himself with His name, with His Word, which shows us who He is!

"I CHANGE NOT"

Then the clean food laws that are very quickly figured to be done away with
have to be understood by this

Matthew is ONLY talking about clean hands, a verse that had been added in about "Yeshua declared all foods clean"
This is not the case in the manuscripte form.

Mark 7:19  Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
Mark 7:19 This is because it does not enter into his heart, but into the wastbowl purging all the foods?
Mark 7:19 because it does not enter of him into the heart, but into the belly, and into the wastbowl goes out, purging all the foods?
The Interlinear Bible by Jay P. Green, Sr.
Yeshua does not declare that all meats are clean.

Acts 10:14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
Acts 10:15 Again a voice came to him a second time, "What Elohim has cleansed, no longer consider unholy."
Acts 10:16 This happened three times, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky.
Acts 10:17 Now while Peter was greatly perplexed in mind as to what the vision which he had seen might be, behold, the men who had been sent by Cornelius, having asked directions for Simon's house, appeared at the gate;


Acts 10:28 And he said to them, "You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a man who is a Jew to associate with a foreigner or to visit him; and yet Elohim has shown me that I should not call any man unholy or unclean.

The key to understanding this vision is that we are not to call any man common or unclean.

Acts 11:4 But Peter began speaking and proceeded to explain to them in orderly sequence, saying,
Acts 11:5 "I was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw a vision, an object coming down like a great sheet lowered by four corners from the sky; and it came right down to me,
Acts 11:6 and when I had fixed my gaze on it and was observing it I saw the four-footed animals of the earth and the wild beasts and the crawling creatures and the birds of the air.
Acts 11:7 "I also heard a voice saying to me, 'Get up, Peter; kill and eat.'
Acts 11:8 "But I said, 'By no means, Master, for nothing unholy or unclean has ever entered my mouth.'
Acts 11:9 "But a voice from heaven answered a second time, 'What Elohim has cleansed, no longer consider unholy.' The gentiles we considered unholy, and unclean just like unclean food. This vision was used as a paralell to get Peter to understand what had been cleansed, and that was people.
Acts 11:10 "This happened three times, and everything was drawn back up into the sky.
Acts 11:11 "And behold, at that moment three men appeared at the house in which we were staying, having been sent to me from Caesarea.
Elohim has showed me that I should not call "any man" common or unclean.

If this was a matter of making unclean foods clean than what Yeshua said in Matthew 5:17,18 is untrue. So we have one of three possibilities, and they are.
1. The writer of Acts  Chapter 10, and 11 is a lie or
2. Messiah lied in Matthew 5:17,18 or
3. Most interpret these verses wrong!
I firmly believe that latter, because most people want to do things their own way.

Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.
Matthew 5:18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.


Peter now understands what this vision was all about.
It is not about making food clean, it is about making people clean.

This is all about grafting in believers into Israel
"The Gentiles"

1 Timothy 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
1 Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which Elohim hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
I believe that the answer is here...

"which Elohim hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth"

Now if he had created clean foods, and then changed his mind in the New Testament there is a problem here.
Either The Almighty is a Liar, because he says he does not change, or Christendom has been so bent on escaping the Hebraic heritage to make it more sell-able to the mainstream public.
By saying we are all free go do whatever you want.


I have a problem with this line of thinking, and teaching.


1 Timothy 4:4 For every creature of Elohim is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
1 Timothy 4:5 For it is sanctified by the word of Elohim and prayer.

Every creature is good, however this does not mean that every creature is good for food, for even science can prove that.

Yeshua "sanctified" means Set apart by the (word) NOT our word, rather it is the "Law" Teaching / Instruction aka Torah, which all most all Christians hate.
Who can sanctify anything? There is only one who can sanctify, and that is YHWH!
YHWH
sanctified, and set apart what was healthy for us long ago. Some minor research you can find that what YHWH calls unclean is the most unhealthy food there is. Did YHWH not anticipate this? Of course He did! They say they make pork without salt, but it is still unhealthy, because it is still grease fat puke eat creature. You can prayer over it all day, and it will still be unclean / unhealthy.
You can pray over mercury or arsenic, all day and it will still kill you

Most Christians hate the Old Covenant because they want to escape from the law, instead of embracing it.
Either way no matter what we all will be judged according to our works.

Colossians 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but the Messiah is all, and in all.
We are grafted into Israel, and that means that there is NOT two sets of laws, and two different ways of following Yeshua.

At the end of the day it's all about "faith" of interpreting the scriptures.

1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered to you at the first that which I also received: that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures, "The Scriptures"
Yeshua died for our sins, not to make foods clean, but rather to make people clean through His Sacrifice. Yeshua died for our sins not to set us free from the Torah!



Yeshua said that He came to save that which was lost, not to make everything clean so we can eat what we want to!

Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Luke15:6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

Luke19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.



Clearly you can now see that Yeshua did not remove the law aka Torah nor make foods clean by His death. Saying so would be an insult to Him!


When doctors say don't eat pork no one seems to have a problem with it, but when YHWH's Word says so few can accept it for what it is. YHWH's Word says it, and that should be final, but rather there are millions whom reject His perfect Word.
