Genesis 1:29-30 Plants and Fruits that are allowed

Genesis 1:29-30 And Yahweh 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. 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.

Notice that in the beginning of the verse Yahweh says “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”. There are so many levels of discussion here but we are going to stick to just a couple. Later in this verse, notice that HE seems to change and says “I have given every green plant for food” but doesn’t mention it needing to yield seed. Does Yahweh change? Has HE decided one verse later that it doesn’t matter if the plant yields seed or the tree fruit “bears seed” in order for it to be an allowable thing to eat?   Let’s use the scriptures to see if it is possible that  Yahweh changes.

Malachi 3:6 For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Well, there is the answer to that. Yahweh DOES NOT CHANGE. Why doesn’t HE mention it must have seeds the second time then? It is because in verse 30 he is talking about what animals can eat.  They are given every green plant.  If HE already established which plants we can and can’t eat, then there is no need for HIM to repeat Himself on this issue over and over again. If we know the green plant or fruit must yield seed, then we know from that point on we are to eat ONLY seed bearing plants and fruits. This was established from the beginning and will continue FOREVER. It will not change. Somehow Yahweh knows what plants are healthy for us. Our guess is that HE was pretty smart.

Now let’s take this into today’s society. There are many fruits and vegetables that are modified to prevent them from producing seeds. This means their yield is sterile. What things you might ask? Anything that a Bio-Tech company has produced in their laboratories is usually a sterile seed bearer; corn being the most common.  As of 11/08/2012, sweet corn is not modified but yellow corn is; it doesn’t stop there.  Almost all HYBRID fruits and vegetables are sterile. This means they may bear the seed but the seed cannot produce another yield; be wary of this. Yes they may have a seed but Yahweh did not intend for us to modify HIS perfect creation. Seedless HYBRID Watermelons are another example. The list goes on and on and it is our duty to know what we are putting in our bodies according to this verse.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from Yeshua? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body,”

HE created our bodies and HE lives inside of us. The Ruach haKodesh lives inside of anyone that has Faith in the Messiah. So think about that every time you are about to put something in your body that HE has commanded we shouldn’t. You are literally feeding our Messiah’s Set Apart Spirit the very food HE commanded we avoid.  This includes stuff like Kelp or Seaweed.  They may seem and look like plants but they do not bear seed.  Why eat anything HE has commanded we don’t?  Why ask why to the Master?  We should just follow HIS commands and throw away the fact that we are taught things are okay to eat now because we are a different culture.  We are not a “different” culture.  We may be different before we come into Faith but once we come into Faith we come into covenant with HIM and we are then all part of HIS Israel.  It is not our place to decide something is okay for us to eat that was commanded to abstain from.  HE wants us to be a “set apart” people.  That is why HE has commands.  HE wants people to instantly know we are believers by how we live .

    They are “Biblically Clean”. They both bear seeds. Blackberries, Raspberries, and Strawberries have seeds on the outside. That is the hard stuff that gets caught in your teeth.

    Carrots grow flowers which bear seed. Usually you don’t see that because the “root” is the part you eat and the flower grows above ground.

    Is spinish and other greens are okay? Are mushrooms okay? Do you have a list? If so can you please post?

    Sabrina,

    Thanks for inquiring. Keep searching and you will find the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set you free.

    Spinach is okay and it is seed-bearing. Mushrooms are not. Mushrooms are FUNGI. They grow in “DARKNESS”, that should be warning enough. Fungi, like mushrooms, are not seed-bearing. Seaweed is a micro-organism and does not grow on land and is not seed-bearing. The Bible tells us that anything that grows in water is clean to eat as long as it has fins and scales. They have to have both.

    Do not just think all “Kosher” items are okay as they do eat unclean foods because they believe some things like Seaweed to be green and bearing seed.

    All you have to do is research to make sure the plant grows in soil on land, not in the ocean/water, and it has to be seed-bearing. Carrots are seed-bearing as the leafy green part that grows above the ground produces the seeds.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS INFORMATION I DO NOT NORMALLY EAT SEAWEED BUT I DONT EAT MUSHROOMS AS THEY ARE NOT SEED BEARING. BUT NOW I KNOW ABOUT SEAWEED AS WELL. I WILL BE MORE CAREFUL IN FUTURE. MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY THINK I AM CRAZY, BUT I REALLY WANT TO PLEASE GOD AND I WOULD RATHER NOT TAKE CHANCES BY EATING WITHOUT CARE. I AM 60 AND QUITE HEALTHY, I BELIEVE ITS BECAUSE I TRY MY BEST TO FOLLOW THE CREATOR’S DIET. CORN AND WHEAT AND GRAPES ARE OUR MOST SPRAYED CROPS IN SOUTH AFRICA. NOT TO MENTION GENETICALLY MODIFIED EVERYTHING ELSE ITS NO WONDER SO MANY PEOPLE ARE DYING OF CANCER. IT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER TO GET RID OF 80% OF THE POPULATION AND WE ARE HELPING THEM BY EATING ALL KINDS OF RUBBISH.

    WOW! my family and friends think i am weird for keeping biblical food guidelines- this change has been recent and everyone is bombarding me with their doctrine but G-D has allowed me to stay strong. In my prayers time I was told to eat like Daniel then a few days latter he confirmed this two times, once with a elderly lady that i went to visit (which by the way i hadn’t seen her in in about 5 yrs – i wasn’t even sure she was alive when i went to look for her) and the other with a my bible study leader, on different dates and locations (and they don’t know each other!) and was told again to eat like Daniel (and the reason why) because bitter times are coming to the world. I guess G-D is preparing a lot of Daniels for others to see our G-D.

    Doesnt the bible say …its not what you put in your mouth that makes you unclean but what comes out of your mouth. Because what comes out of the mouth comes from the heart.

    I read your article on Dietary Law and found it very intriging. Thank you putting this info on the web. I have really enjoyed the readings and believe me I am interested in how i can have some info sent to me daily or so. I have a question however; I was reading and I was just wondering about potatoes. I mean they grow out of the ground but, I am not sure that it came from seeds. I know that they have to grow in dark areas.(under ground). My question is: Are potatoes considered good or bad? and while on that how about sweet potatoes? Again, thanks for posting this information i really have to remember to read some facts and subjects again on this website. May GOD continue to Bless you always.

    I can’t wrap my head around reishi mushroom tea or chaga mushroom tea not being clean for us. I understand your point and scripture doesn’t lie, but how can something so good with so many health benefits be unclean? Reishi and chaga are known to fight and rid cancer. I find myself taking reishi during stressful times and it helps with sleep tremendously.

    BIBLICAL TRUTH is a contradiction in terms. It’s an oxymoron, as is Christian School, Christian Education, Spiritual Guidance and any number of similar contrivances.

    Food For Thought.

    I’m on your website because I, too, am searching. First of all I want to thank you for tackling this subject and trying to answer our questions using Scripture.

    I’m not convinced that either kelp, seaweed, or mushrooms are not Biblically clean. First of all mushrooms and seaweed do have a “zerah” the Hebrew word for “seed”. Just because English has another word, “spore” does not mean that a spore is not a “Zerah”. Zerah is all encompassing and also means “offspring”, “descendants”, “sperm” …. the seed of human/man. We know we can’t eat the zerah/seed of man. Man is not food…… but …. how do we know that mushrooms or seaweed are not food?

    The only plant that I’m aware of that the Bible says not to eat is the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. I don’t know which fruit that is…. there’s much speculation…. maybe a fig??? …..since Adam and Chava next covered themselves in a fig leaf.

    Master Yahuweh Elohim gave all the seed bearing plants to mankind. I know that there are some that are poisonous to eat, but they may be good for us as using an extraction or small amount in curing diseases. Maybe… probably.

    When I read that we must eat only fish with scales and fins….. I think He’s referring to fish….. animals of the sea ….. not sea vegetables or kelp or seaweed. I know that sea vegetables are a photosynthetic plant that changes sunlight into oxygen…… just as land plants.

    How about yeast? Does yeast have a seed? Are we to abstain from bread and pizza and all things made with yeast? I do abstain, but only during the Feast of Unleavened Bread after Pesach/Passover.

    Hi,

    We received your information on the word seed from the Hebrew word zerah. We know that Rabbinical Judaism allows Seaweed, Kelp, and Mushrooms to be eaten. We have not fully researched the information you have provided but we will.

    We believe that over time YHVH reveals more and more to us. With our current scientific knowledge that Seaweed and Kelp are living microorganisms, we abstain from them. As far as mushrooms go we know Rabbinical Judaism recognizes the spores as outside seeds. We just struggle with knowing the Truth, scientifically speaking, and not abstaining from them.

    Maybe your zerah research can help. Do you have any articles on it?

    Yeast naturally occurs in the air so you can’t avoid that. From our current research, Yeast isn’t the only issue during Passover/Feast of Unleavened as much as Leavened products are.

    Thanks,

    Hi , I had asked question whether I could have reishi mushroom and is not against God. As I am trying to avoid inhaler. I think appears you have deleted my question.

    Bananas have seeds. The most common bananas bought are of the Cavendish variety that have been bred over the years to contain no seeds. The little black dots in the middle of the fruit are immature seeds that can’t reproduce.

    Hi,

    We believe that over time YHVH reveals more and more to us. As far as mushrooms go we know Rabbinical Judaism recognizes the spores as outside seeds. We just struggle with knowing the Truth, scientifically speaking, and not abstaining from them. We are not the deciding authoritative figure on mushrooms but using them for medicinal purposes, in our opinion, is different than consuming them as food. The ONLY thing that YHVH said to not even touch or consume is swine. This doesn’t give us the freedom to consume all other things but swine is so detestable to YHVH that YHVH told us to not even touch it. Our current opinion on mushrooms does not allow us to consume them as a food source.

    Hope that helps.
