|Section 3: Health and Life Choices, Article 14
Yehuveh’s Priests and Kings
“Take thou also unto thee wheat,
and barley, and beans, and lentils,
and millet, and fitches,
and put them in one vessel,
and make thee bread thereof.”
|he only recipe in Scripture is very brief, only six ingredients and one direction. With no further instruction, there are several ways to approach making Ezekiel’s bread. Some people try sprouting these ingredients, some try milling them into flour. Proportions are varied to obtain a mixture which|
|can be leavened to make a light raised bread, because we take the King James reading of bread at face value. However the Hebrew word for bread is lechem from which we get the name Bethlehem, Bet = house and lechem = bread, “house of bread.” Lechem, however, simply means food. Ezekiel is then told, “thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it,” which settles the question of whether he cooked these grains and legumes together in a soup or porridge or attempted to make biscuits or bread with them. The fact that he is told to put them “in one vessel” and no leavening is mentioned implies that this was likely an unleavened bread. Omission of leaven is in full harmony with Ezekiel’s anointing. Consider that the reasons for omission of honey and leaven from the diet of the “anointed” high priest could apply to anyone who enjoyed Yehuveh’s anointing, including prophets.
With the suggestions for lifestyle made in Seek Him Early, Diet, Nutrition and Food, Appeal for a Vegan Diet, and Diet for Yehuveh’s Priests and Kings, it is clear that simple is by far better. For that reason, the few recipes here included are the simple things. There are plenty of cookbooks available for almost every level of eating, but it would appear that in our restoration to Yehuveh’s simple life, recipes will eventually give way to just enjoying the tree fruits and whole grains, legumes, and seeds in their most natural form!
If you are taking steps from the typical cooked-food lifestyle to the simple life, perhaps a few of these suggestions will provide assistance until you reach the “quarter an apple and slice a mango” style of eating.
Sesame Oat Crackers
1 c. water 1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. rolled oats Sesame Seeds
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
Blend water, oats, sunflower seeds and salt at high speed for 60 seconds, until smooth. Pour immediately onto a non-stick 11-inch by 16-inch edged baking sheet, tilting to spread the mixture evenly. Sprinkle generously with sesame seeds. Bake 10 minutes at 325 degrees F. Remove from oven and score into 1-1/2 to 2-inch squares by pressing a knife or plastic pancake turner into the cracker dough. Return to the over for 30 to 45 minutes until the crackers are crisp, dry and golden brown. Store crackers in an air-tight container. Serve with fruit or enjoy as a quick energy snack with your favorite drink. Yields about 50 delicious crackers!
Sunseed Dressing goes great with these crackers, as well as with salads, baked potatoes, and sandwiches!
