Leviticus So whats the point? Gods Old Law Health Code Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless Not just a symbolic ritual, that purification water was really a recipe for highly effective soap! (Numbers 19:6-7, 9, 17-18) Ashes of a heifer and cedar Pouring water through such ashes would
produce lye This is how some American pioneers made their soap! Hyssop was added This contained thymol which is an antiseptic that is used in our mouthwashes. Once used for purifying temples and cleansing lepers, the leaves contain an antiseptic, antiviral oil. A mold that produces penicillin grows on the leaves. An
infusion is taken as a sedative expectorant for flue, bronchitis, and phlegm Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless Not just a symbolic ritual, that purification water was really a recipe for highly effective soap!

Scarlet yarn (wool) Thought to make it an ancient equivalent of lava soap Also, the Bible prescribed that hands be washed under running water for a long time doctors used bowls of water & disease spread (Lev. 15:13) Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless The 8th day for circumcision wasnt chosen randomly Weve discovered thats when Prothrombin peaks (Genesis 17:12) Circumcision alone has proven to be a healthy choice Helps prevent urinary
tract infections in boys as well as lowering the chance of penile cancer Prothrombin, along with vitamin K, causes the blood to coagulate. At birth, the level drops low. By day 8 the level peaks to over 100% of normal. With a deficiency, hemorrhaging can take place. The percent of available prothrombin in a newborn dips from about 90% of normal on its day of birth to about 35% on its third day of life outside the womb. After the third day, the available prothrombin begins to climb. By the eighth day of the childs life, the available prothrombin level is approximately 110% of normal, about 20% higher than it was on the first day, and about 10% more than it will be during of the childs life. Such data prove that the eighth day is the perfect
day on which to perform a major surgery such as circumcision Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless Gods laws for leprosy and other diseases seem logical today, but really these laws were ahead of their time (Lev. 13:45-46; 14:4-6) One suspected of leprosy was pronounced unclean and isolated until he could prove that he was not leprous and contagious to others If leprous, he was made to dwell outside the camp Leper colonies formed One with leprosy encountering others had to cover mouth and mustache region and proclaim, UNCLEAN! UNCLEAN! This prevented the spray from the nose & mouth from going airborne Germs is a modern disc.
God gave very specific and detailed information on how to diagnose leprosy, determining contagiousness, and differentiating between problems To show how far Moses was ahead of modern society we need only to remind ourselves that the word quarantine originated in the fourteenth century when the Italian ports of Venice and Genoa first refused admission to immigrants who might be harboring plague and required them to stay on board for forty days hence the word
quarantine. Even in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries leprosy spread over southern Europe until the principles of Moses were reenacted successfully (Dr. William Vis, Medical Science And The Bible) Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless What about those seemingly arbitrary dietary restrictions? These two are very purposeful (Leviticus 11:1ff; Deut. 14:9-10) Why no pork? Parasites and bacteria can take up residency in the muscle tissue. Parasites, worms, & bacteria if not completely cooked out.
A 1953 study by David I. Macht showed an incredible difference in toxicity between the clean and unclean animals in the Bible Growth Of Seedlings When Exposed To Muscle Juices From These Animals Clean Mammals: Ox 91%, Sheep 94%, Calf 82%, Goat 90%, Deer 90% Unclean animals: Pigs 54%, Rabbit 49%, Camel 41%, Horse 39% Clean birds: Pigeon 93% & Quail 89% Unclean birds: Red Tail Hawk 36% & Owl 62%
Fish: Those with scales (Herring, pike, shad) 100% & those without scales were highly toxic Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless What about those seemingly arbitrary dietary restrictions?

Macht showed an incredible difference in toxicity between the clean and unclean animals in the Bible Reptiles were included on the list of unclean animals We now know these
carry Salmonella not just from eating them, but from handling them. Even by handling what has been in contact by them (Leviticus 11:32-34) Bats were unclean. Surely, they resemble flying rats but they also are carriers of rabies. From 1992-2002 they were responsible for 24 of 26 rabies related cases of human death. Even contact can be dangerous Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless Some more not so random health code laws from God: Special care for clothes, bandages, and other items that contacted disease. Garments burned if contaminated. Metal pots were washed. Earthen
vessels were destroyed (Lev. 13:47-48; 15:12; 6:27-28) If you contacted the dead, things that contacted the dead, and things you touched after contacting the dead were all unclean. Some were washed, some destroyed. It wasnt until the 1800s that doctors really discovered the danger from going from the morgue to the living (Numbers 19:11, 22) Israel was to bury their waste outside the camp covering it up. Even today places where this isnt practiced, issues like Cholera, amebic dysentery, and ecoli prevail (Deut. 23:12-14) Gods Health Code The Old Law Health Code: Peculiar, But Not Pointless Some more not so random health code laws from God:
God forbid sex during menstruation. Some say this was simply a thoughtful law. Yet such activity increases the risk of bacteria, diseases, yeast infection, urinary tract infection, & pelvic inflammatory disease (Leviticus 15:19) Gods law for the sexual relationship between a husband and a wife within in the bounds of marriage prevented many issues Sexually transmitted diseases among other diseases and problems (Lev. 20:10-16; Gen. 1:27) Moses recorded that all of mankind descended from one man and one woman. Many mocked this idea, however, scientists have been able to prove that all the differences can result from the DNA of two (Gen. 1:28) If Adam and Eve had been heterozygous (AaBb; two
dominant, two recessive genes), they would have been middle-brown in color. And, from themin one generationracial differences easily could have occurred. To illustrate this, examine the chart at the left (known to geneticists as a Punnett square). From these possibilities, one theoretically could obtain the following:

man. Its not mans ideas & wisdom, but Gods words Fully authoritative! How could Moses have understood these things? Men had not discovered germs, microorganisms, bacteria, and how diseases spread Some have tried to explain this away based on Moses great training in Egypt. Yet as advanced as Egypts medical doctors were, they were still filled absurd ideas that were clearly wrong. None of these are found in Gods word Moses writes with perfection! (Acts 7:22) Also, a testimony against evolution Mans errors vs. Gods perfection! The Bible demands our respect, attention, & obedience It is the final word! Gods Health Code Timeless lessons from these health laws:
The people of God are to be a holy people, because God is holy our lives are to be a reflection of His character (Lev. 11:44-45) Its hard to see what does touching an unclean animal have to do with a persons holiness. Its an external thing, externals dont affect internals? Cleanliness is next to godliness is not a scripture but Leviticus does teach that cleanliness is next to holiness Avoiding what God declares is unclean! Remember, God declared these things unclean for a reason they had a negative impact on peoples lives. Ignoring Gods law invited problems. If for no other reason, they impacted holiness because of what it said about your and your love for God and desire for His will in your life Today we are to be holy because God is holy (I Peter 1:16). What is our attitude toward what God has called unclean for us? A heart for Him?
Gods Health Code Timeless lessons from these health laws: Gods laws are for our good, even if we dont fully understand why and how (Proverbs 3:3-10, 16-18) Moses & the Israelites surely didnt understand the why and hows of these laws but following Gods laws preserved life and health for them Gods laws are for our good ALWAYS! Sometimes we may have other desires, sometimes we may not understand, and sometimes we may not agree but that does not matter. We must trust in His wisdom! Think about the problems and struggles that enter into our lives when we choose to ignore Gods laws. Think about how much better peoples lives would be if they would give Gods way a chance!
