THE BIBLICAL FALL FEASTS
PART 14
YOM KIPPUR – THE FAST (Continued)
 
I find that I need to clarify what I wrote about an absolute (biblical) fast. I said that neither food nor drink is to be taken. The exception to that is water. You should drink water unless specifically lead otherwise. Water is a cleansing and purifying agent and is consistent with the cleansing and purification of the soul. It is the only thing to consume during your fast.
 
There are many so-called “fasts” decreed by man. These are efforts in which a person will abstain from something of a particular nature. They may abstain from something they really enjoy such as: television, games, sports, a certain food, or any number of things. The observance in some churches of the 40 days of “Lent” is such a fast. These are done usually for a certain specified purpose. Even the 21-day “Daniel fast” falls into this category. However, none of these “fasts” of man can substitute for the only true biblical fast.
 
Fasting should have a purpose beyond just doing it as a ritual or because others are doing it or because your Pastors call for the church to do it (although that is a good thing). There are two main reasons to fast: (1) To improve physical health, and (2) to draw closer to God and His power in your life.
 
The benefits of an extended fast for health reasons can be quite significant as the body is cleansed. One benefit can be weight loss. The first three days gets rid of excess salt and water. Pounds can fall off quickly. These are the most difficult days; you may be sorely tempted to break the fast. It gets easier starting with the fourth day, the body begins to burn off excess fat. Pounds come off more slowly, but more permanently.
 
A longer fast can also help resolve various health issues. It has been known that fasting 10-21 days, coupled with prayer, has overcome various cancers. Lee Bueno’s book, “Fast Your Way to Health,” goes into great detail on the health benefits.
 
The greatest benefit for most of us is the enhanced relationship with God. I have noticed how my “spiritual ears” are much better “tuned” to hear Holy Spirit. I also see a significant increase in healings (miracles, signs, wonders). When I read the bible, I “see” much in it that I had not seen before.
 
Fasting may not be for everyone, so do not feel guilty for not doing it. However, it is very beneficial to those who choose to do it for the right reasons. Health and spiritual benefits are right reasons. Just as a ritual because someone says you should do it is not a right reason. Whether you do or do not fast, do all as unto the Lord and not as “man pleasers.” Be blessed.

POCKETKNIFE SIN
 
It was the fall of the year. Russell and I were taking a trip to Michigan for a wedding. We were very excited about our trip. As we got to the airport and were ready to check our baggage, we discovered that Russell had his pocketknife in his pocket. There are certain rules on airplanes, and one is that you cannot take a knife. (After 9/11 I can totally understand). This knife was precious to Russell since he had owned it for a long time. We had a choice. Throw it away, take it on board anyway, or find a place to stash it until we got back from our trip. The latter choice was made. It was stashed in a planter until our return trip home. And, yes, it was still there.
 
As I was thinking about this little “incident,” I thought of how often we have “hidden sin” stashed somewhere in our lives. We hide it there because it has become “precious” to us. We do not want to totally give it up. We leave it hidden for a while, but it comes out of hiding now and then for us to enjoy that sin. The scriptures tell us in Hebrews 11:25 speaking of Moses, “Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;” Then in Proverbs 14:12 it says, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, But its end thereof are the ways of death.”
 
Each day we are given an opportunity to make the right choices, either go God’s way or our own way. That pocketknife incident did not send us to hell, but it is a reminder that we should not disobey God. It should never have been brought with us in the first place. Are there little things in your life that you have “stashed away?” What about anger? Or what about unforgiveness? What about slander, or gossip? These are things that keep the Lord at a distance. Pocketknife sin can bring consequences.
 
Be blessed
