Corporate Fast - January 2-11, 2023
A fast is a conscious, intentional decision to abstain for a time from the pleasure of eating in order to gain vital spiritual benefits
Fasting has been essential throughout life and history. Many have applied this principle to their life. When God created humans, He created the only living beings on earth in His image and likeness and with a three part body. We have our spirit (our true selves), our soul (our mind, will, & emotions), and our physical body (our 5 senses and the flesh that we reside in). Fasting is a principle that impacts all areas of life - spiritual, mental (soul), and physical.
As we read in the Bible, fasting has been a part of cleaning, mourning, prayer for answers, and most importantly a connection with our Father God that is pure with a clear mind and a body eliminated from toxins. But, in order to truly get all that we can from this principle and part of life, we must do it properly. And, this requires knowledge and understanding of the implications and importance of fasting on all aspects of our being - spirit, soul, and body. Below are some articles and information about the importance of fasting and how it affects us in every area of life.
Daniel Fast Guidelines
If you have never fasted and have a standard American diet....please read below regarding fasting properly in order to make a informed decision
One important thing to know about fasting is that doing it right takes preparation. If your liver is really toxic, it’s not the time to do a fast. If you’ve been eating a standard American diet, a lot of animal products, or a high fat, high protein diet, or if you haven’t been eating many fruits and vegetables, it’s not a good idea to do a fast. Even if you’ve been eating a clean diet for a long time but you’ve inherited poisons or been exposed to a lot of chemicals or pathogens, it’s also best to not jump into a fast right away.
Fasting should also be avoided by people who have a weaker or sensitive constitution, which is the result of an overload of pathogens and toxins in the body (see Liver Rescue for more information), and by people who have nervous system problems, adrenal issues or a heart that isn’t that strong.
In all of these cases, instead of doing something intense like a fast, you’re much better off making continual, gradual changes. This way, your liver can safely and continually flush out toxins. With time, you’ll clean things up to the point where you’re ready to consider a fast. (read more in the link below if this pertains to you)
