The Christian Passover Feast Day Celebration

The 2015 Christian Passover is this week on April 3rd.  This is intended to be in overview of how it can be celebrated at home with your families.  Ideally we would all assemble together to celebrate these feast days, however, that is not possible since the churches and most Christians do not believe they should celebrate Passover.  However, the bible does instruct us to celebrate Passover as a statue forever. Exodus 12:14  There are no instruction in the bible for celebrating Easter.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Wave Sheaf are also this week.  See thispage for more information about all the feast days.

Preparation:

Spring cleaning:  remove all leaven and/or yeast from your house. These items are not to be in your home until after the feast of unleavened bread to over. 
Meal Planning:  plan a meal that includes meat from clean animals (preferably lamb), unleavened bread, bitter herbs and wine.  Exodus 12:8  Num 9:11 Unleavened Bread and Wine were at the Last Supper Luke 22. Make enough unleavened bread to last seven days for the Feast of Unleavened bread.

During Passover:

This is a time to remember the covenants Yahweh made with us, the first Passover and Jesus’ Last Supper which was Passover.  Passover is to be a memorial of these events:
Abraham:  Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham that he would multiply greatly, he would be a father to many nations, and kings would come from him.  Yahweh instructed Abraham to be circumcised and all of his heirs were to be circumcised.  Circumcising the foreskin was proof of the covenant between Abraham and Yahweh.  Genesis 17
Exodus & First Passover:  The Israelites had become servants in Egypt and Yahweh set them free the night of the first Passover.  Yahweh instructed them to sacrifice a lamb and put the blood of the lamb on their doorposts so that then he came to pass judgement on the people of Egypt, he would pass over the houses marked with the blood of the lamb.  Yahweh killed all of the firstborns in the houses that were not marked with the blood of the lamb.  The Israelites were saved by the blood of the lamb and escaped from Egypt. Exodus 12.  Yahweh gave the Israelites instructions for sacrificing animals to forgive their sins.  The sin offerings were performed by the Levitical priesthood.  Leviticus 4.  The Israelites were to perform the sacrifice of the lamb on Passover as a rehearsal for Jesus coming and being sacrificed.
Passover, Jesus’ Last Supper and the New Covenant:  Jesus was crucified on Passover and on this day; he had his last supper with his disciples, where he gave them the New Covenant.  On this Passover he was the sacrificed lamb that died for our past sins.  The Israelites knew it was their Messiah since he was crucified on Passover.  In the New Covenant, blood sacrifices and blood rituals are on longer required since Jesus was sacrificed for our past sin.  The Levitical priesthood is also no longer required since their main responsibility was preforming sacrifices.  Circumcising foreskin is no longer required since that is a blood ritual.  Yahweh expects us to circumcise our hearts instead and not be stiff-necked (rebellious to the laws of Moses) people.  Deu 10:16  Acts 7:51  In the New Covenant, Yahweh said he would put the law within us and write them on our heart. Jer 31:33 Hebrews 8:10.  Today we must be baptized for the remission of sins.  Today Jesus is our High Priest and the order of Melchizedek is in effect, see this page for more information.  We are to pray to Yahweh in the name of Jesus or Yeshua. The story of Jesus’ crucifixion can be read from the bible or from Pontius Pilate’s testimony.

Foot Washing:

Prior to eating the Passover dinner, Jesus washed the Disciples feet.  Wash basins and towels can be prepared to wash each other’s feet.  John 13.

Passover Dinner:

We should assemble and eat the meal after sundown. Bless the bread prior to breaking it and remember that it represents Jesus’ body and the wine represented his blood that was shed for the New Covenant.  The Passover dinner is a reenactment of the Last Supper.
The bread:  “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
The Wine:  “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

The Passover with the Disciples
17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?" 18 He said, "Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, 'The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples. '" 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover.
20 When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve. 21 And as they were eating, he said, "Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me." 22 And they were very sorrowful and began to say to him one after another, "Is it I, Lord?" 23 He answered, "He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born." 25 Judas, who would betray him, answered, "Is it I, Rabbi?" He said to him, "You have said so."
Institution of the Lord's Supper
26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is my body." 27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."

The Spring Feast Days, Passover, Unleavened Bread and the Wave Sheaf which represents Jesus’ resurrection have been fulfilled.

Today Easter is being celebrated in place of these important feast days.  Easter is the celebration of fertility; see this page for more information.


Also the Jews do not celebrate the Spring Feast Days as stated in the bible since they do not believe in Jesus being the Messiah.  Nowhere in the bible does it state that Passover is a Jewish feast day.  The Jews were not even mentioned in the first five books of the bible where this feast day was instituted.

Yahweh’s Food Laws are Health Laws

Overview

Our God Yahweh, that gave us life, also gave us instruction for living and taking care of ourselves.  Just as a manufacturer of a radio will give you instructions for using and caring for the radio, Yahweh gave us instructions for taking care of ourselves.  Yahweh wants us to eat food that nourishes are bodies and promotes good health.

For years I ate pork, shrimp and other food that I thought tasted really good but now I have learned how bad they are for you.  This is probably where the term ‘Sinfully Good’ originates.  Unclean food may taste good however it harms our bodies with toxins.  There are lots of items in our grocery stores you can buy and eat, however, they should not all be considered food since most contain harmful additives and pesticides.

In summary, Yahweh intended for us to eat the following:
  • 1.       Organic produce:  herbs, spices, vegetables, fruit, legumes and grains.
  • 2.       Organic clean meat:  ox [steer], sheep, goat, deer, fish with fins & scales, & poultry
  • 3.       Organic Raw dairy:  cheese, curds, butter, eggs and milk from clean animals
  • 4.       Organic Raw honey
  • 5.       Sea Salt

Here is a link to the PDF version, if you prefer.

I have also made a video about this topic.

Organic Produce

Our first instruction for nourishing our bodies is given it the first chapter of the bible.  The definition of food is plants and fruits that produce seeds.
ESV Genesis 1:29 And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. (H402 oklah, G1033 brĂ³ma)
Yahweh created our food before he created us and he tells us these plants and fruit trees were kind after kind.  In today’s terms this means he planned for us to eat organic produce.  He planned for us to eat plants and fruit that were able to produce life.
Genesis 1:11 And God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
Therefore, Yahweh would not consider genetically modified or hybrid seeds the same as his organic seeds that are kind after kind.  Nor would he consider genetically engineered seedless tomatoes and seedless watermelons food.  Genetically modified things should not be considered food. 

Some people think that produce is labeled with a five digit code beginning with an 8 if the item has been genetically engineered, however, that is not true.  In practice this is never actually done.  However, produce that is organic does have a 5 digit code beginning with a 9.  All vegetables with a four digit code beginning with a 3 or 4 could be genetically modified or hybrids.  See more information about GMO food here.  To learn about food certified non-GMO, see this site.

It is also questionable as to whether mushrooms are considered food since mushrooms are not grown from seeds.  Mushrooms are not mentioned in the bible.  Some Christians consider mushrooms unclean.  On the radio show, God’s Home Health Care, they explained that spores are the seeds in the mushrooms and they consider them okay to eat.  Listen to the show that aired on 3/4/2015 for more information.

Yahweh’s laws for crop rotation and letting the land rest is very important also.  This ensures the soil stays rich in nutrients.  These laws are in Leviticus chapter 25.

Eat organic produce which includes vegetables, herbs, spices, fruit, legumes and grains.

Organic Clean Meat

Yahweh provided us a list of clean meat that we are to eat for nourishment:
Deuteronomy 14:4 These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox [steer, in the US commonly referred to as a cow, however it is really a male castrated steer or ox], the sheep, and the goat, 5 The hart [deer], and the roebuck [deer], and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg [or mountain goat], and the wild ox [or antelope], and the chamois [mountain goat or sheep]. 6 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat.
Deuteronomy 14:9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
Deuteronomy 14:11 Of all clean birds ye shall eat. [see unclean list below]
Leviticus 11:22 Of them you may eat: the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, and the grasshopper of any kind. 23 But all other winged insects that have four feet are detestable to you.

Yahweh provided organic food for animals to eat and gave us instructions as how they are to eat:
Genesis 1:30 And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so.
Therefore Yahweh did not intend for the clean or unclean animals to eat things produced by a corporation.  Steers normally eat grass and sometimes other vegetation.  Today steers are fattened up quickly so they can get to market quicker by giving them feed.  Most feed contains genetically modified corn and soybeans.

Leviticus, chapter 9, shows that only clean animals were acceptable to Yahweh as a sacrifice.  They could sacrifice calves, sheep, ox and goat.  Today we no longer provide sacrifices to Yahweh, since Jesus was to be the last sacrifice.  They were instructed never to eat the fat or blood of any animal:
Genesis 9:4 But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.
Leviticus 3:16 And the priest shall burn them on the altar as a food [H3899 lechem] offering with a pleasing aroma. All fat is the Lord's. 17 It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, in all your dwelling places, that you eat neither fat nor blood."
Leviticus 7:23 You shall eat no fat, of ox or sheep or goat.  24 The fat of an animal that dies of itself and the fat of one that is torn by beasts may be put to any other use, but on no account shall you eat it.
Leviticus 17:10 "If any one of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among them eats any blood, I will set my face against that person who eats blood and will cut him off from among his people. 11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls,
Deuteronomy 12:23 Only be sure that you do not eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh. 24 You shall not eat it; you shall pour it out on the earth like water.

Only animals that were killed, with the intentions of being eaten, were considered clean food:
Deuteronomy 14:21 "You shall not eat anything that has died naturally.

The New Testament adds that our meat should not be sacrificed to idols or strangled:
Acts 15:29 that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell."
The Bible does not instruct us to use the Kosher process called Shechita to slaughter cattle.  This process is very cruel.
From Wikipedia regarding Shechita: The practices of handling, restraining, and unstunned slaughter has been criticized by, among others, animal welfare organizations such as the Compassion in World Farming.[22] The UK Farm Animal Welfare Council said that the method by which Kosher and Halal meat is produced causes "significant pain and distress" to animals and should be banned.[23] According to FAWC it can take up to two minutes for cattle to bleed to death.[24] Compassion in World Farming also supported the recommendation saying "We believe that the law must be changed to require all animals to be stunned before slaughter."[25][26] The UK government opted not to follow FAWC's recommendations after pressure from religious leaders.[27] The Federation of Veterinarians of Europe has issued a position paper on slaughter without prior stunning, calling it "unacceptable." [28]    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shechita
                Video regarding Shechita: http://youtu.be/Qp8B4vSd6h0

Eat grass fed ox, steer, deer, sheep and goats.  Do not eat their fat or blood.

Clean and Unclean Animals prior to Moses


Prior to Moses documenting the Yahweh’s laws, Adam and Eve knew about sacrificing clean animals to Yahweh.  The proof is that their son Abel was a keeper of sheep and he brought the first of his flock to be sacrificed and that was acceptable to Yahweh.  Cain's sacrifice of fruit was not acceptable since Yahweh never accepted fruit as a sacrifice. Genesis 4:2-4  Only the best of the clean animals could be sacrificed to Yahweh as stated in Leviticus 3:6
Therefore Adam and his family must have been eating the meat from sheep since or otherwise it would not have been a sacrifice to offer it to Yahweh.

Noah knew about clean and unclean animals since he was given specific instructions for including them on the ark:
Genesis 7:1 Then the Lord said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. 2 Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and his mate, and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate, 3 and seven pairs of the birds of the heavens also, male and female, to keep their offspring alive on the face of all the earth.
Noah was to bring more clean animals on the ark since they would be their food during the flood while they were on the ark.


Therefore, I am sure that Adam and his descendants were eating clean animals before Moses’ time when the laws were documented.

Unclean Animals

Yahweh provided us a list of unclean animals that we should not eat.  These animals were not intended as food.  Most of them were intended to keep the earth clean.
The land unclean animals that we should not eat nor should we consider them food, are listed:
Deuteronomy 14:7 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare [rabbit], and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you. 8 And the swine [pig], because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase. [hare and swine will eat anything and keep the land clean]
The animals in the water that we should not eat include catfish since they have no scales.  Catfish are bottom dwellers that keep the lakes clean.  Shell fish, including shrimp, lobster and crap should not be eaten.
Deuteronomy 14:10 (in water) And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.
Bird that should not be eaten since they are unclean, are as follows:
Deuteronomy 14:12 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, 13 And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind, 14 And every raven after his kind, 15 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, 16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan, 17 And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant, 18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.  [These birds keep the land clean and eat unclean and dead things.]
Most insects are not to be considered food:
Leviticus 11:20 "All winged insects that go on all fours are detestable to you. 21 Yet among the winged insects that go on all fours you may eat those that have jointed legs above their feet, with which to hop on the ground. 22 Of them you may eat: the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, and the grasshopper of any kind. 23 But all other winged insects that have four feet are detestable to you.
Animals that swarm are not to be considered food:
Leviticus 11:29 "And these are unclean to you among the swarming things that swarm on the ground: the mole rat, the mouse, the great lizard of any kind, 30 the gecko, the monitor lizard, the lizard, the sand lizard, and the chameleon. 31 These are unclean to you among all that swarm.

Most Christian’s today argue that the New Testament states, in a roundabout way, that it is ok to eat pork.  However, they do not use the same logic to conclude they can now eat mice and rats.  Why not?  Some state it is because they did not eat meat prior to the laws of Moses, however that is not true (as mentioned above).  The Church’s state that tithing must be paid because that was in effect prior to the laws of Moses.  The laws against eating pork and for paying tithing are both in the same chapter of Deuteronomy, chapter 14.  Both laws were in effect before Moses and are still in effect now.

In 2 Maccabees chapter 7 there is an account where 7 brothers and their mother was killed for not eating swine. These Judahites choose death since it was more important to follow Yahweh's law and not defile their bodies.  Here is how the account of this starts:
2 Mac 7:1 It came to pass also, that seven brethren with their mother were taken, and compelled by the king against the law to taste swine's flesh, and were tormented with scourges and whips.
Here is what Isaiah says about Yahweh’s rebellious people:
Isaiah 65:4 who eat pig's flesh, and broth of tainted meat is in their vessels;

Here is what Isaiah says about the final judgment and Jesus’ second coming:
Isaiah 66:17 "Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one in the midst, eating pig's flesh and the abomination and mice, shall come to an end together, declares the Lord.

The corporations that make money from selling pork tell us it is ok to eat.  It is really a health risk though.   Wikipedia outlines some of the health risks of eating pork, here.

Unclean Food

A lot of prepared, boxed foods, and produce at the grocery store should be avoided since they are unclean.

Toxic pesticides are being sprayed on our produce which makes the produce unclean to eat.  Produce tested that to have the most pesticide residue are:  Apples, Peaches, Nectarines, Strawberries, Grapes, Celery, Spinach, Sweet Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Cherry Tomatoes, Snap Peas, Potatoes, Hot Peppers, Kale and Collard Greens.  These items should only be eaten if they are organic.  See this site for more information.

Genetically modified foods (GMO) should be considered unclean and not eaten.  Here is a list of common GMO foods:  rapeseed (canola), honey (mostly Canadian sources), cotton, rice, soybeans, tomatoes, corn, canola, potatoes, papaya, zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, chicory, cotton seed oil, peas, sugarbeets, and many vitamins from GMO sources.  In America there are no laws that require GMO food to be labeled.  In the European Union, Japan, Malaysia and Australia there are laws requiring GMO food to be labeled.  See this site for more information.

Hybrids should not be considered clean since their seeds will not grow and produce new plants.  Hybrids do not produce kind after kind.

Many prepared, boxed, and canned foods should be considered unclean since they contain harmful food additives that would be considered unclean.  Here is a partial list to avoid:
1.       1. Aspartame, (E951) more popularly known as Nutrasweet and Equal (manufactured by Monsanto the same company that produces Agent Orange and Round-up weed killer)  See this site for more information.
2.       High fructose corn syrup
3.       Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
4.       Trans fat
5.       Artificial Food Dyes (banned in Norway, Finland, Austria, France, and the United Kingdom)
6.       Sodium Sulfite
7.       Sodium nitrate (or sodium nitrite)
8.       Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydrozyttoluene (BHT) (banned in the U.K., Japan, and many other European countries)
9.       Potassium Bromate
10.    Olestra (or Olean) (banned in the United Kingdom and Canada)
11.    Brominated Vegetable Oil (banned in over 100 countries)
12.    Potassium Bromate (or bromated flour) (banned in Europe, Canada and China)
13.    Azodicarbonamide (bleaches flour) (banned in Australia, the U.K., and most European countries)
14.    Synthetic Growth Hormones rBGH and rBST (banned in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, and the EU.)
15.    Arsenic (found in poultry) (banned in the European Union)
See this site and this site for more information.

Some companies are using aborted baby fetal cells to develop artificial flavors.  Yahweh definitely does not approve of this practice.  If a food label states it has artificial flavors, it may really need to state the contents as: Embryonic kidney cells from aborted human babies.
Also see these sites for more information:

Curses of Eating Unclean Food

Eating unclean food will bring on curses.  We are receiving many curses because we are eating GMO food, pork, and toxic pesticides that are sprayed on our produce.  Here are the curses:
Deuteronomy 28:21 The Lord will make the pestilence stick to you until he has consumed you off the land that you are entering to take possession of it. 22 The Lord will strike you with wasting disease and with fever, inflammation and fiery heat, and with drought and with blight and with mildew. They shall pursue you until you perish.
Deuteronomy 28:58 "If you are not careful to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, the Lord your God, 59 then the Lord will bring on you and your offspring extraordinary afflictions, afflictions severe and lasting, and sicknesses grievous and lasting. 60 And he will bring upon you again all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. 61 Every sickness also and every affliction that is not recorded in the book of this law, the Lord will bring upon you, until you are destroyed. 62 Whereas you were as numerous as the stars of heaven, you shall be left few in number, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God.
We are being plagued with high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes and many other plagues from eating things not authorized by Yahweh.  The doctors are making us patients for life selling us chemicals and unclean substances to put in our bodies to control these plagues.
The consequences for not following Yahweh’s laws are reflected in the Song of Moses:
Deu 32:23 "'And I will heap disasters upon them;  I will spend my arrows on them; 24 they shall be wasted with hunger, and devoured by plague and poisonous pestilence;
The Book of Revelations reflects in the end times there will be famine and pestilence.  This famine is from not having real food to eat.
Rev 6:8 And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.

Food Mentioned in the Bible

The bible mentions some foods many times and it must be due to their importance.  Here is an overview of the important foods.

When Yahweh provided the Israelites with the Promised Land, after the Exodus of Egypt, the land was described as having certain foods available.  All of these foods are very healthy that Yahweh states will make you full:
Deu 8:7 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills, 8 a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey, 9 a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing, a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper. 10 And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.
Many times the bible describes this land as the land of milk and honey:
Deu 26:9 And he brought us into this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.

The king of Assyria promises the descendants of Judah a new land with healthy food and water:
2 Kings 18:31 Do not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria: 'Make your peace with me and come out to me. Then each one of you will eat of his own vine, and each one of his own fig tree, and each one of you will drink the water of his own cistern, 32 until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey, that you may live, and not die.

The Book of Sirach list certain food and elements as necessary for human life.  It is interesting to note that sinners will turn these important items into evil and that is what the corporations are doing today:
Sirach 39:26 Basic to all the necessities of human life are water, fire, iron, salt, fine flour, milk, honey, wine, oil, and clothing.  27 For the godly, all these things are for good, but for sinners, they will turn into evil.

The bible verses above all seem to agree that water, wheat or flour, honey, vines or wine, olive trees or oil, and milk are very important.

The Book of Revelations prophesizes that we will stop buying certain foods from merchants.  I am confident that as more people learn about the current day issues with corporate food they will either buy organic or produce their own.
Rev 18:11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her, since no one buys their cargo anymore, 12 cargo of gold, silver, jewels, pearls, fine linen, purple cloth, silk, scarlet cloth, all kinds of scented wood, all kinds of articles of ivory, all kinds of articles of costly wood, bronze, iron and marble, 13 cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and slaves, that is, human souls.

Bible Food List

The bible mentions many foods we eat today but not all.  This section is provided to document food that I found in the bile.  I’m sure I missed many that I will need to later add.
So here is a list of food I found in the bible, along with their benefits and current issues regarding their use today.  Ideally all fruits and vegetables eaten should be organic; however, organic is not always available.  Therefore, I indicated on some foods that organic is important due to GMO issues or pesticide issues.  Avoiding hybrids is important also though.

Foods Not Mentioned in Bible

A lot of fruits and vegetables we eat today are not mentioned in the bible.  There are two reasons that I can think of for this:
  • ·         They ate them but it was not important enough to mention
  • ·         They only ate fruit or vegetables that were native to their environment  


Some of the Vegetables not mentioned in the bible:
Cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, potatoes, turnips, celery, spinach, peas, kale, collard greens, asparagus, and eggplant.

Some of the fruits not mentioned in the bible:
Peaches, nectarines, strawberries, pineapples, mangos, kiwi, grapefruit, and oranges

Just remember when choosing to eat fruits and vegetables that they must be able to produce life again – meaning they must have seeds that can produce new life.  Also choose not to eat hybrids, GMOs and pesticides. 
Make sure you research all food and seeds prior to purchasing them.
This is Yahweh’s Health Care Plan!

Conclusion

The food corporation’s goals are to make a profit for their shareholders.  In order to make a profit, they put the cheapest ingredients in our food today.  For example, Mayonnaise use to be made with quality oil and now it is all made with cheap GMO soy oil that should not be eaten.  The food corporations have changed many other recipes in the same matter. For the most part, only 10 corporations produce the products purchased at the grocery store.  These corporations lobby our politicians to keep their unsafe food products on the market.  It is so important to them that you eat unhealthy food that they have created a new psychiatric disorder called healthy eating disorder.

We must vote with our pocket book and stop buying unclean food from the grocery store.  Our goal must be to keep our earthly bodies healthy.  Tell them you do not want their cheap food products by growing your own, buying from trusted sources at a farmer’s market, and by buying only organic at the grocery store.

By the way, buying organic is great for our environment since it keeps pesticides and herbicides out of our water sources.

Always remember to start your meals with a prayer of thanksgiving to Yahweh and ask him to bless your food.
