The Sin of the Consumption of Blood

The Torah forbids eating blood, which many today disobey by eating things like “black pudding” or “morcilla”,

And wherever you live, you shall not eat the blood of any bird or animal.

Leviticus 7:26

I will set my face against any Israelite or any foreigner residing among them who eats blood, and I will cut them off from the people.

Leviticus 17:10

But you shall not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water.

Deuteronomy 12:16

But you shall not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water.

Deuteronomy 15:23

Which also includes not eating meat that still has blood in it, which is why the apostles not only repeated the command of the Torah to not eat blood, but also to not eat anything strangled, for an animal that is strangled has not been properly drained of all blood,

You shall not eat any meat with the blood still in it…

Leviticus 19:26

Then someone said to Saul, “Look, the men are sinning against the Master by eating meat that has blood in it.” “You have transgressed,” he said. “Roll a large stone over here at once.”

1 Samuel 14:33

Then he said, “Go out among the men and tell them, ‘Each of you bring me your cattle and sheep, and slaughter them here and eat them. Do not sin against the Master by eating meat with blood still in it.‘” So everyone brought his ox that night and slaughtered it there.

1 Samuel 14:34

Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.

Acts 15:20

You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell.

Acts 15:29

For the blood is where the soul is, which is why it must be drained out completely from the flesh of an animal before it is eaten, which God commanded from the very beginning when he gave man authority to eat animals, which was when Noah came out of the ark,

Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.

Genesis 9:3

But flesh with its soul, which is its blood, you shall not eat.

Genesis 9:4

Only beware of this, that you not eat the blood, for the blood is the soul: and therefore you must not eat the soul with the flesh

Deuteronomy 12:23

For the soul of all flesh is in its blood; therefore, I have said unto the sons of Israel, Ye shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul of all flesh is its blood; whoever eats it shall be cut off.

Leviticus 17:14

And that is why when the Messiah poured out his blood, he poured out his soul, in fulfillment of prophecy, to make atonement for his people, because the soul, which is in the blood, makes atonement for the soul of another,

Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.

Isaiah 53:12

In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

Luke 22:20

for the soul of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that maketh atonement for the soul.

Leviticus 17:11

He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins, and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.

1 John 2:2

So He had to be made like His brothers in every way, that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, in order to make atonement for the sins of the people.

Hebrews 2:17

Which implies donating and receiving blood transfusions is also sin, for if the mere act of eating the blood of an animal is sin, how much more is injecting the blood of another person into the body sin, even if the blood transfusion would indeed save the life of the person, for God does indeed appoint such situations to occur to test whether man would transgress the command or not, rather than seek God for life and healing of the body, through obedience of his commands in the Torah and belief in Yeshuah and prayer,

As such, to drain all the blood from an animal, the animal must be hung upside down and decapitated, to then let its blood drain out from its flesh while its hearts also expels blood in its last heartbeats, then after the flesh is cut from its body, the meat must be washed, then the meat must be immersed and left in water for at least a 1/2 hour but no more than 24 hours, then washed with water, then the immersion and washing process may be repeated one or two more times, then cut away and visible blood clots, then add salt to the meat, and then the meat will be ready to be cooked thoroughly and eaten.
