THE PURPOSE OF FASTING

 (Isaiah 58:1)  Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

 

(Isa 58:2)  Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.

 

(Isa 58:3)  Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.

 

(Isa 58:4)  Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.

 

(Isa 58:5)  Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?

 

(Isa 58:6)  Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

 

(Isa 58:7)  Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

 

(Isa 58:8)  Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.

 

(Isa 58:9)  Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

 

(Isa 58:10)  And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:

 

(Isa 58:11)  And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.  KJV

 

ATTITUDE AND BEHAVIOR WHILE FASTING:

 

(Matthew 6:16)  Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. KJV

 

While fasting, you can go about your daily occupation, unless you have chosen to fast in seclusion and consecration, which means that you separate yourself from others, make no public appearances.  Some people can choose to go about their daily routine and then come home and spend quiet time in fasting and prayer.  It isn’t always necessary for people to know that you are not eating or that you are on a fast from food, however if  you are asked you should answer truly, such as if you are offered food, or asked to part-take or break bread with someone, then you should let the individual know that you are on a consecration and that you are abstaining from eating food and/or beverages at that time, (and be sure to thank them for their generosity/hospitality.

 

We should take fasting seriously, however it isn’t necessary for a person attitude to be less than pleasant, just because you are fasting.  Some people are just plain grumpy, and cantankerous  (quarrelsome, irritable, mean, moody, grouchy, obstinate.)

 

(Matthew 6:17)  But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; (6:18)  That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.  KJV
