A Bible Journey, 122: The Salvation Training Manual
"But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead ... Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God, even the Father"
The ancient English word "king" originated from an Anglo-Saxon word, cyning, a pronoun form of cyn, that meant kin. The word kin, meaning family, or race, originated from the same root word as "king."
A "king" was the father, or progenitor, of a kin, a family. Some families grew very numerous and became sovereign nations - it was only then that "king" became a political term. But either way, rebelling against one's father, or mother (i.e. "Queen" - an Anglo-Saxon word related in origin to "king") was, in effect, a violation of the Fifth Commandment i.e. "Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee").
The Kingdom of God will be exactly that - the sovereign place where the Father's children will be born on the day of their salvation (see Who Can Be Saved? and What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16?). The purpose of the true Christian "religion" is to provide the means for humanity to become natural-born citizens of the eternal Kingdom of God.
The Holy Bible is, for all intents and purposes, the instruction manual of salvation (see Grace Is Not A Gift Of Lawlessness).
"15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
All of the Sacred Laws of the LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ; see The Real Jesus: The Word Of The LORD God and A Bible Journey, 56: The Sacred Name) are about learning to live free of the rebel Satan's dead-end corruption.
The LORD's health and dietary laws aren't about "religion" - they have always been about physical and psychological health (see A Bible Journey, 101: Why Shouldn't Unclean Food Be Eaten?).
"5:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 5:2 Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead: 5:3 Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I dwell. 5:4 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp: as the LORD spake unto Moses, so did the children of Israel." (Numbers 5:1-4 KJV)
"5:5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 5:6 Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the LORD, and that person be guilty; 5:7 Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed. 5:8 But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, even to the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him. 5:9 And every offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they bring unto the priest, shall be his. 5:10 And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth the priest, it shall be his." (Numbers 5:5-10 KJV)
Laws of "morality" are also about health (see A Bible Journey, 108: The Laws Of Physical Morality), but moreover, those who are unfaithful to a spouse cannot be faithful to God. It's the reason that the great antichrist "church" is called a "harlot" and "the mother of harlots" (see Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?).
"5:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 5:12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him, 5:13 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner; 5:14 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled: 5:15 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance. 5:16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD: 5:17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water: 5:18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse: 5:19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse: 5:20 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband: 5:21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell; 5:22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot:
