When the Lord took His people from Egypt, He did not give them flesh-meat to eat till
they mourned and wept in His ears, saying, ‘Who shall give us flesh to
eat? We remember the flesh, which we did
eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions,
and the garlick; but now our soul is dried away;
there is nothing at all beside this manna, before our eyes.’ [Numbers 11:4–6.] Then the Lord gave them flesh
to eat. He sent them quails from heaven,
but we read, ‘While the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed,
the wrath of the Lord was kindled against the people, and the Lord smote the
people with a very great plague.’ [Verse 33.]
“The light God has given His people is that
by eating the flesh and blood of dead animals, man becomes animalized. His lower passions are greatly strengthened
by such a diet.
“Worldly physicians can not account for the
rapid increase of disease among the human family. But we know that much of this suffering is
caused by the eating of dead flesh. . . .
counsel and righteous practices are needed now, if the people of God succeed in
preserving clear minds and healthy bodies.
We must give close attention to eating, drinking, and dressing. The entire body of believers needs to make a
decided reform. A high profession,
followed by a disregard of the laws of life, shows a faithless life. Lack of
fidelity, want of stability, slavery to wrong habits,—this is the sure result
of such a course. Those who follow this
course are not consistent Christians.
Salvation means deliverance from every habit which tends to drag
humanity down. Transgression of the laws
of our being is transgression of the laws of God.” The Paulson Collection, 1,
