What Would Be Left Of A Man After 21 Days Of Dry Fasting?? by ikorodureporta: 7:55am On Jan 11
When Jesus fasted, He was hiding somewhere in the wilderness.
How can someone in this state of economy engage in 21 days of dry fasting??

Pls, don't fast & kill yourselves. I lost a friend last year after he completed the task

I don't understand this dry fast oo, someone should explain it to me.

As my pastor would say, you need God's leading to do a lengthy dry fasting without food and water. Let baby Christians among these people not go and kill themselves out of ignorance

Dry Fast is the type that you commence without taking a sip of water till you break. Say you begin by 6a.m and break by 6p.m without water. But there's the wet fast where you take drops of water. these types goes on for a loner duration.

Say Oneweek without solid food, you can take water of light fruits.

Actual dry fasting for 21 days is suicide. 9 days without water will kill you. It would be irresponsible for any church to recommend an actual 21 day dry fast to its members. However, it seems that the RCCG fast is not what it sounds like; it is more like the muslim fast which is broken every evening.

Fun fact: The economic cost of fasting is very high because it dulls your brain, which makes you less productive at work. Productivity is the main difference between rich and poor countries.

What is fasting and what is the purpose? How should it be done.?

People out of carnal thinking pattern have made it a physical hunger endurance competition. Fasting goes with prayer and what is the point being so hungry that you can't pray with focus and fervency?

People don't think at all sha...

You are gradually becoming a comedian oh. How can you say fasting kills productivity? it is hunger that does that and fasting may make you hungry but isn't about hunger. It goes well beyond that.
Read Isaiah 58:3-5. It isn't about endurance but suppressing the leisurely things of the flesh in order to sensitise you spirit man and draw closer to God.

Dry fasting is done without food and water for three days....

After the third day, it is advisable to drink warm water mostly in evenings...Most churches recommend this.

The strength to carry dry fasting for a longer time is that of God...

It is not what you just decide to do....
Re: What Would Be Left Of A Man After 21 Days Of Dry Fasting?? by trueking: 11:18am On Jan 11
It is never advisable to go for more than three days without water, but scientists have proven the human body can go for forty days without food, it advisable to educate yourself properly before embarking on any fast, so that you will not come and go and die out of ignorance.

so the dry fasting as said above is just the 6am to 6pm no food no water right? Then which one is the normal fasting(is it the one with water? Or the one till 12pm or 3pm?) That's why I was confused. I took the dry to be 21days of no food no water
Re: What Would Be Left Of A Man After 21 Days Of Dry Fasting?? by Originakalokalo(m): 4:02pm On Jan 11
Types of fasting...

1. 12am-6pm. You break with food of any kind.

2. 12am-6pm . You break with food that will not contain oil, pepper and salt.

3. 12am-6pm. You break with only fruit.

4.12am this day to 12 am next day. This is one day dry fasting. .....you don't take water or food throughout until it's time to break the fast.

5. When 4 above is done for 72 hours.... It is dry fasting for 3 days without food or water.

6. When 4 above is done for seven days and more . You start talking warm water only at evenings for the sake of the stomach....it is important.

7. There are other fasting that are not common...

Eg. Not talking to anyone. Not a single word for a stipulated days.

Not bathing for stipulated days..

Not leaving the house of God for stipulated days..

Etc.

Lolzz. How can you call abstinence from food from 6a.m to 12noon fasting?

There are different types of fasting, hence you have to choose which you want to undertake, as your body can carry you.

Okay, let me say this to clarify. Sometimes, i do 3days dry, no water, no food. The last one, i commenced by 6p.m on sunday and drank water on Wednesday 6.p.m, then continued 12 midnight to 6p.m the next day, every day.

If you really want to be serious you can't go eating food by 12noon.

Make sure you define your terns before you begin, or you'd just be starving and could end up with ulcer. Ask yourself the reason you are fasting, answer yourself.

Again, if you fast without praying, you are just on a hunger strike. You must engage the supernatural. You must pull the substance of what you need to become evidence.

No oh. They break everyday but some people may decide they want to do it dry?
Fasting simply connotes suppressing the flesh and things of the flesh or leisurely thing to focus on spiritual things like bible study, preachings, prayers and meditation.
In fact it isn't too cool to be fasting and still be chatting on phones for long hours or reading leisurely things.
