Does Exodus 15:26 promise supernatural healing for obedience to the Torah?


Does Exodus 15:26 promise supernatural healing or that obedience to the Torah would bring health?

Exo 15:26 He said, “If you will carefully obey the LORD your God, do
what is right in his eyes, listen to his commandments, and keep all
his statutes, then I won’t inflict on you all the diseases that I
inflicted on the Egyptians, because I am the LORD your healer.”

Is Daniel 1:15 intended as a miracle or a testimony to the superiority of the divine diet?

    Well, considering that this was written in the Books of Moses, the Torah, and to that point the ONLY Scripture that existed was what Moses wrote, then it is pretty obvious that this verse is referring to obedience to Torah, which is God’s instructions. In addition, this verse is NOT talking about divine healing. It is talking about divine health… there is a BIG difference. Divine healing is a bandage, a quick fix, it solves an immediate need but does not fix the underlying problem. This is why often times people receive a divine healing only to end up back in the same predicament or worse (after all, a spirit comes back with seven others, right?). There is so much scientific evidence catching up with what was written in God’s Word, especially the works of Moses, thousands of years ago. It is becoming pretty apparent to many that the Bible is right and should be followed and Modern Christianity has been wrong about these things. God never gave us permission to reject or ignore any part of His Word. The simple truth is that if people will obey what the Bible instructs, they will see the blessing of God as promised in Scripture come into their lives. If not, we will continue to see Christians dying in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s… and some even in their youth… because of cancer, heart attacks, parasitic infestations, and all sorts of terrible diseases. There are research and statistics that show that Jewish people who keep kosher are the healthiest people in the world. Seventh Day Adventists who maintain a vegan diet have been shown to live an average of 10 years longer than the rest of society. Oddly enough, neither of these groups actually are doing what Torah says, although they are a lot closer than mainstream Christianity. Jews eat kosher, but under their parameters of what kosher is, which restricts some things not restricted by Torah and permits dangerous man-made chemicals like artificial sweeteners. SDAs obviously do not eat unclean animals because the refrain from all meats. The reality is that we are supposed to follow what the Bible says. When it comes to our diets, we are supposed to eat what God said to eat, not eat what He said not to eat, and should only eat permissible foods in the condition in which He made them (meaning we should only be eating things that are all natural, and in today’s world it becomes almost required for many things to seek out organic foods because of the widespread use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and other things, as well as this whole GMO mess). On top of all this, any Christian who takes to the liberal perspective on this and deems some of these “Old Testament” things as done away with has one question staring them in the face: What if you’re wrong? What will these folks do when they stand before the Master in judgment and they are wrong? If people would simply read the Bible and do what it says without questioning it or trying to find New Testament loopholes that do not exist then they will never have to worry about it. Truth is, nobody will ever have to worry about consequences if they just obey the Book. A person might be obeying the Bible in vain, as these things may truly be abolished as many want to believe. However, even if that is the case, it’s not like God is going to say, “Oh, you refused to eat bacon under the New Testament, you are so evil because you still obeyed the Bible, how dare you obey My Word after Jesus died to allow you to reject my Word and do whatever is right in your own eyes. You lack faith by obeying what Scripture says, so now I have to send you to hell because you obeyed the Bible.” Of course, that sounds ridiculous, but that is exactly what liberal Christianity wants us to believe.

    Pay Close attention to verse 14. Did this contradict the Torah. Are we living under the Torah?
    Romans 14:13-23 King James Version (KJV)

    13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

    14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

    15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

    16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

    17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

    18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

    19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

    20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.

    21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

    22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

    23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

    Is not the above comment bordering on the line of false doctrine? Pay close attention to verse 4.

    1 Timothy 4:1-5 King James Version (KJV)

    4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

    2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

    4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

    5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
