Dietary Laws of Israel

The Lord allows us to eat all meat now, but He restricted Israel initially, “You shall not eat any detestable thing. These are the animals which you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat, the deer, the gazelle, the roe deer, the wild goat, the mountain goat, the antelope, and the mountain sheep” (Deuteronomy 14:3-5).
While Israel could not eat unclean meat, the Lord provided plenty of meat that they could eat. The Lord is like that. He restricts us in some areas of life, but then He opens doors in other areas. Therefore, let us not be like Eve who was tempted by the restriction, but let us focus upon all that the Lord allows us to do.
