Hebrews 4/12: For the Word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
In the first century, the new faith was beginning to take form, and they wanted to force the new non-Jewish believers to respect a series of impositions, belonging to the jewish religion, which brought as a result, the celebration of a council, which was known as the Council of Jerusalem, to know about the matter. But an extraordinary and unique event took place, and was that the very same Holy Spirit pronounced regarding the matter of the new way which the non-Jewish believers had to travel, and HE determined, by reason of being in charge of the Church of God, and administering it in sustitution of Jesus the Messiah, to solve a matter or conflict submitted to his knowledge, by pretending to compel the new believers to live as jews: As was written in Acts 15:5 "But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That if was needful to circumcise them, and to command [them] to keep the law of Moses."
The 4 burdens of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit, on this matter, after analyzing it, took a decision and determined the following: remembering that HE was left instead of Jesus the Messiah, because the Messiah departed to the Father, establishing that the new non-Jewish believers have to abstein from four things: from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication. These are the 4 burdens of the Holy Spirit: that is the way it was recorded in the Book of Acts 15:28-29 "For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well."
