Ezekiel Chapter 4:9-17 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, according to number of days that
thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and nifty days shalt thou eat
And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by
weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it. Thou
shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin; from time to time
shalt thou drink. And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt
This very special "Bread Recipe" was given to
Ezekiel by God himself and it was HOLY. Yes, this is true, this
really is a recipe of ingredients that God himself created for Ezekiel
and the rest of us! We of cource, don't know the
amounts but we can use the same 'ingredients' to make a really healthy
bread can be used for the following:
- Emergency survival, (maintaining
health during hard financial or emergency times.)
- Spiritual fasting,
(This bread is good for a "special spiritual fast" when you
want to move closer to the Lord during difficult times. This should be
done only in conjunction with prayer, bible reading, meditation and
reflection upon the Word of God for wisdom, guidance and direction.)
fasting remembering to consider your personal medical problems, ( when
abstaining from food is a medical problem, make sure that your
doctor will allow you to eat the ingredients. Some items such as
wheat or honey could be a problem for those people on restricted diets.
You also might want to ask your doctor about allergies too.)
enjoyment, (it's a great way to try something new.)
functions, (Pot blessings or worship services such as communion)
The recipe makes a little more then an eight days supply for one
person to be used in conjunction with ample amount of liquids. Try making ½ the
amount if you are just making it for the family to try. Allow your body
to adjust to the ingredients before your try using to fast with. Natural
foods such as whole wheat in conjunction with beans can overwhelm your stomach
at first until you are used to them. Just eat this bread for several weeks in conjunction
with your other meals to adjust properly.
Because of modern pollutants and chemical additives
to our environments, a few extra ingredients have been added to help build up
the body's physical immune defenses. Many of these ingredients can be
purchased in a Natural food store or the health food section of your local
- 2 ¾ cup whole wheat flour (unbleached)
---You can use 1 cup of white flour and 1 ¾ cup of whole wheat flour.
- ¼ cup millet flour
(millet grounded up in a blender)
- ¼ cup lentils flour (lentils
grounded up in a blender)
- 1 ¾ cups rye flour
- ½ cup barley flour (barley
flour or grind up barley grains)
- 6 tbs. Soy flour (keep this
flour in the refrigerator) ---OR—6 tbl. of assorted beans ground up
in a blender to be made into a flour. (beans could be sprouted for more nutrition,
dried and then ground up into a flour with your blender or mill.)
2 tsp. Sea salt ---OR---You may substitute the use of plain
Mix these dry ingredients and "divide into two portions." Place one
portion into the refrigerator to be used within a short period of time.
Now take 2 tbs. Yeast and dissolve into ¼ cup of warm water with 2
tbl. of honey. Set aside for a few minutes to rise.
Mean while pour the following on top of the remaining dry ingredients: ¼ to
½ cups of honey (amounts may vary according to taste preferences.) ¼ cup
of Canola or Corn Oil (Olive Oil may be used but it’s more expensive.) 1
cup of warm milk made from powdered milk or substitute fresh store milk.
Pour raised yeast into the rest of the ingredients and mix just long enough to
dampen all of the dough. You may have to add more flour or delete the
milk depending upon the wetness of the dough. Think of the condition of
the dough looking like muffin batter. With a lot more of honey I have
found out that I had to cut the milk back a bit. (Honey is so tasty; I
really have a sweet tooth.) If it’s too moist it won’t bake properly, so
keep your honey and add more wheat flour.
Pour this mixture into a greased and floured pan to let it rise for about one
hour. Generously sprinkle sesame seeds on top to add more
Calcium. Bake 375* for 25-45 minutes. Cooking times may depend upon
the type of oven that you have and the moistness of your healthy bread.
(Regular ovens, barbecue grills, solar ovens, propane, or wood campfire.)
The bread is done when it pulls away from the edge of the pan and bounces back
when pressed upon on.
This recipe when divided into four equal parts should give you a "little
more" then 1/2 1b. Weight portions each. This is a good days supply
of fasting or survival bread. Wrap each portion with foil and keep it
refrigerated for freshness.
I believe that this bread has all of the Amino acids and nutrients that you
would need to maintain good health. You should only be lacking vitamin C
which you can get from fruit. Another way to get vitamin C, is to
sprout some alfalfa seed and eat then as a salad. Grated carrots
or dry fruit can be added for more nutrition.
I have add a few more items to the list in the Bible but the "basic
ingredients" are there. Adding raisins would be good too for
brining up the nutrition levels. Keep in mind that you can always add
more ingredients but this basic bread is an excellent way to maintain good
Biblical fasting should be done "without any food yet a person should
still be drinking water," but for those who "can’t" abstain from
food for health reasons, this "Ezekiel Bread, The Bread From God" is
the "next best thing." Some medicines have to be eaten with food to
keep from getting upset stomachs.
It defiantly has
"spiritual connotations" that help as you as you pray and intercede
for others. Your eating bread with the ingredients that God gave to
"Ezekiel to live on for one year." Your mind will be more on the Lord
and your health (mentally, physically, and Spiritually,) will improve as you
grow in His Word the bible. Prayers to the Lord, our Provider will be
stronger as you intercede for others. I have heard that some people are actually using this bread as their
staple bread and I have to admit if anyone did they would become extremely healthy in their diet.
