What was the purpose of quoting Isaiah 28:7, when your sect clearly does not
believe in Prophecy, nor any of the power gifts of the Holy Spirit (which your sect has a warped and
twisted view of the Third Person of the Trinity). Were you poking fun at the admonition that is
being given to preachers of the Word of God?

an attempt to appear intellectual, when in fact it is rampant with darkness and lies and untruths. Financing the kingdom

Jewish Blood Transfusions?: ‘According
to the book, Egyptian Erotica: The Essence of Ancient Egyptian Erotica in Art and Literature
(2004) by El-Qhamid, blood was used as medicine in ancient Egypt.
book, Ancient Egyptian Medicine (1996), reveals that ancient papyri "lists blood [both
human and animal]...used as a medication."
Law forbade the medical use of "any sort of blood" (Leviticus 17:10, 14), human or animal. Both kinds of
blood are called dam in Hebrew.
'The Nile River was turned into this
dam (blood), with no distinction being made as to whether it was human or animal.
'And although liquid, blood--like gravy or wine sauce--could be eaten with
flesh. Hence Jews were forbidden to "eat the blood of any sort of flesh. " (Leviticus 17:10-14)
‘God commanded the Israelites to pour blood out on the ground. (Deuteronomy
12:16, 23; 15:23) Why? Because it was toxic. Therefore, it had to be buried, just as toxic disease-carrying fecal matter
was. (Leviticus 17:13; Deuteronomy 23:12, 13) Today, blood is still considered toxic, and medical personnel
who handle it regularly aren't allowed to donate.
fluid leaving the body was ever meant to be reintroduced back into it, whether saliva (compare
Numbers 12:14; Deuteronomy 25:9); tears (compare Isaiah 25:8; Ps 42:3; 56:8; 80:5); semen (compare
Genesis 38:9; Leviticus 15:16-18); sweat (compare Genesis 3:19); vomit (compare
Proverbs 26:11; Isaiah 28:8); pus (compare 1 Kings 22:35; Job 5:18; 34:6; Isaiah 3:7);
vaginal fluids or secretions (compare Leviticus 15:19-26); urine (2 Kings 18:27;
Isaiah 36:12), and of course, blood. (Genesis 9:5, 6; Leviticus 17:10-14).'
While breast milk is designed to be consumed by an infant (compare Exodus 23:19; 34:26; Deuteronomy
14:21), the thought of a mother drinking her own breast milk is repugnant in many cultures.
In fact, she would eventually die if she tried to be sustained by her own milk
alone. Drinking "replenishable" milk from animals, though, was quite acceptable in Bible times.--See
Proverbs 27:27; Isaiah 7:22.
Transfusions?: ‘Since the vast majority of Christians were either Jews or Jewish converts
who adhered to the Mosaic Law, they were already abstaining from blood. Gentile Christians
were to do likewise. (Acts 15:23)
'Consequently, the inspired Christianized
Jewish physician Luke instructed Gentile Christians to "keep [that is, keep on,
or continue] abstaining...from blood," just as Jewish Christians had continued to do. (Acts
15:29; Colossians 4:14, New World Translation).'
