Daily Bible Verse






The Christian Israelite Church combines both the teachings of the Old Testament (Israelite) and the New Testament (Christian). As particular aspects of the religion are outlined, you will see both these teachings observed.






Another action which distinguishes a Christian Israelite member is the choice of food they eat, and the preparation. The starting point as required by Christians (see Acts 15:19-20), is to abstain from blood, pollutions of idols, and things strangled (see Leviticus 7:26,27). God's instruction through Moses was to eat only clean meats - see Leviticus chapter 11 - drained of blood (see Leviticus 17:13). Members have the aim of eventually returning to Adam's state when created - of becoming vegetarian (see Genesis 1:29). Our writings teach us that as we get closer to God's Spirit we will have a natural desire to refrain from eating flesh (see Genesis 1:29 and also see Numbers 11:19-20). As a symbol of the New Creation (the Millennium) when no animals will be killed, Christian Israelites abstain from eating animal flesh on the seventh day and during the Sabbath hour, ie. between 6pm Friday and 11am Sunday.


Instructions are also given on the cleanliness of cooking and eating utensils and containers, and of not mixing their use with those used for other household chores.
