Rabbi, why do the Black People eat Rice on Passover? Deuteronomy 16:3-4

Deuteronomy 16:3-4
Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.

Blacks eat rice, because it has been a staple food in our diets for ages: before, during and after Chattel Slavery.   Black Slaves- or "THE SOUTHERN TRIBES" eat rice on Passover, because simply put- rice is not leaven.

The other multicolored multi ethnic houses of Israel "THE NORTHERN TRIBES" eat rice too for very similar reasons.

So, just what is leaven?

"According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the definition of leaven is: “1. An agent, such as yeast, that causes batter or dough to rise, especially by fermentation. 2. An element, influence, or agent that works subtly to lighten, enliven, or modify a whole.”
Leavening includes yeast and chemical leavening agents, such as baking powder, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and potassium bicarbonate.

(Other ingredients that are sometimes confused with leaven include brewer’s yeast, yeast extract, torula yeast, autolyzed yeast, cream of tartar and cornstarch. These are not leavening agents.)"
Fruit which includes:

are also not leavening agents.

All of these fruit can be made into spirits-  one of those spirits is wine.

What does wine do?
Wine makes you feel good, and a lot of wine gets you drunk.  Spiritual Wine gets you drunk too.  Negative spiritual wine gets you drunk, and Positive spiritual wine gets you drunk. When you get drunk you do what is required of you by your body or entity in excess.

Ephesians 5:18
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

When you're drunk off the Holy Spirit (the blood) you do his work in excess.

2 Esdras 14:40

40 And I took it, and drank: and when I had drunk of it, my heart uttered understanding, and wisdom grew in my breast, for my spirit strengthened my memory:

And my mouth was opened, and shut no more. 
The Highest gave understanding unto the five men, and they wrote the wonderful visions of the night that were told, which they knew not: and they sat forty days, and they wrote in the day, and at night they ate bread. 
As for me. I spake in the day, and I held not my tongue by night. 
In forty days they wrote two hundred and four books. 
And it came to pass, when the forty days were filled, that the Highest spake, saying, The first that thou hast written publish openly, that the worthy and unworthy may read it:
But keep the seventy last, that thou mayest deliver them only to such as be wise among the people: 
For in them is the spring of understanding, the fountain of wisdom, and the stream of knowledge. 

48 And I did so.

When you're drunk off of a woman, you will do her will in excess.

1 Kings 11:4
For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.

Matthew 16:11-12

11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

The laws of the Pharisees were knowledge- the knowledge of good and evil

1 Corinthians 8:1
.1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.

chametz vs. kitniyot

Chametz vs. Kitniyot - Learn the difference between chametz and kitniyot. Discover what foods Sephardic, Ashkenazi Jews prohibit and which foods are Kosher for Passover
During Passover, the Jewish kosher laws become a lot more challenging. Leavened/fermented grain products are prohibited to commemorate our freedom from Egyptian slavery. When the Jews escaped Egypt (led by Moses), they didn’t have time to let their breads rise before going into the desert. Because of this, any type of leavened bread or bread product is prohibited during Passover. These leavened products, known as chametz, include certain baked goods, bread, breadcrumbs, crackers, etc. Unleavened bread, aka “matzo,” traditionally takes the place of chametz during Passover.
But it doesn’t end there. Many Jewish families have additional prohibitions, based on tradition and rabbinical law. To understand these distinctions, you’ll need a little background on the history of Judaism.

There are two major Jewish groups in the world, Ashkenazi and Sephardi. If you don’t know the difference between these two groups, please read my blog postings on the subject:
When it comes to Passover, Ashkenazi Jews and Sephardic Jews have very different food traditions. Confusing? Maybe, at first. Hopefully this blog will help clear a few things up!
All Jews, both Sephardic and Ashkenazi, prohibit the eating of chametz during Passover as directed in the Torah. Chametz items include the following grains:

These grains are prohibited if they’ve had any contact with water/moisture, which leads to rising or “leavening.” Leavening agents like yeast and sourdough are also considered chametz.
In addition to chametz, Ashkenazi Jews traditionally prohibit the consumption of kitniyot during Passover. These items, known commonly as rice, corn, millet and legumes, have been banned for centuries by Ashkenazi Jews. The origin of the ban is unclear; it’s thought that perhaps kitniyot were considered too similar to grains. Grains and kitniyot often shared the same storage bags, so it’s possible there was concern that chametz might accidentally be mixed in with the kitniyot and consumed during Passover. Another theory is that kitniyot expand when immersed in water, which may have been perceived by the early rabbis as a form of rising or leavening. Whatever the reason, most Ashkenazi Jews today stick to the ban on kitniyot, even though it’s not technically prohibited by Torah law.
Sephardic Jews do consume kitniyot during Passover. They are, however, careful about ingredients co-mingling. In the Middle East, it’s not uncommon to see Sephardic women sifting through bags of rice and lentils repeatedly, going through grain by grain to ensure no chametz is mixed in.
While you won’t generally see kitniyot dishes at an Ashkenazi Seder, they are quite common at Sephardic Seders. Kitniyot items include:

Poppy Seeds
Not all Ashkenazi Jews ban kitniyot; in fact, there is a Facebook group of Jews who believe that the ban on kitniyot is excessive. They call themselves the Kitniyot Liberation Front, and they seriously love their legumes! Check out their page here:
Yesterday I featured a green bean recipe that would be appropriate for a Sephardic Passover Seder, but not an Ashkenazi one. My family eats Ashkephardic style; we enjoy foods from both traditions. Therefore, we’re a lot less strict about kitniyot at Passover. But I realize that many of my readers do not want to eat kitniyot at Passover, and I wouldn’t want to mislead anybody about what is or is not appropriate for your personal Passover celebration.
To make all of this a little easier to understand, I’ve re-categorized my blog. If you’re looking for recipes that will work for an Ashkenazi Passover, go to the top of my webpage, click Recipe Index, click on Categories, and search for the category called Kosher for Ashkenazi Passover. If you’re looking for recipes that are suitable for a Sephardic Passover (a broader category, since more foods are permitted at a Sephardic Seder), click on the category called Kosher for Sephardic Passover. I’ve added some other helpful recipe categories, as well as a PRINT RECIPE link to most of my blogs (still working through some of the older ones), so you can print the recipes with ease– and no pictures, to save on printer ink.  🙂
Hopefully, my little site re-organization will help you to when you’re planning your Seder, or any other type of Jewish meal! Next week, I’ll be covering more Passover side dish ideas, and maybe a few desserts as well. Shabbat Shalom!

Christ was our Lamb Jubilees 49

  1. Remember the commandment which the Lord commanded thee concerning the passover, that thou shouldst celebrate it in its season on the fourteenth of the first month, that thou shouldst kill it before it is evening, and that they should eat it by night on the evening of the fifteenth from the time of the setting of the sun.
  2. For on this night -the beginning of the festival and the beginning of the joy- ye were eating the passover in Egypt, when all the powers of Mastêmâ had been let loose to slay all the first-born in the land of Egypt, from the first-born of Pharaoh to the first-born of the captive maid-servant in the mill, and to the cattle.
  3. And this is the sign which the Lord gave them: Into every house on the lintels of which they saw the blood of a lamb of the first year, into (that) house they should not enter to slay, but should pass by (it), that all those should be saved that were in the house because the sign of the blood was on its lintels.
  4. And the powers of the Lord did everything according as the Lord commanded them, and they passed by all the children of Israel, and the plague came not upon them to destroy from amongst them any soul either of cattle, or man, or dog.
  5. And the plague was very grievous in Egypt, and there was no house in Egypt where there was not one dead, and weeping and lamentation.
  6. And all Israel was eating the flesh of the paschal lamb, and drinking the wine, and was lauding, and blessing, and giving thanks to the Lord God of their fathers, and was ready to go forth from under the yoke of Egypt, and from the evil bondage.
  7. And remember thou this day all the days of thy life, and observe it from year to year all the days of thy life, once a year, on its day, according to all the law thereof, and do not adjourn (it) from day to day, or from month to month.
  8. For it is an eternal ordinance, and engraven on the heavenly tablets regarding all the children of Israel that they should observe it every year on its day once a year, throughout all their generations; and there is no limit of days, for this is ordained for ever.
  9. And the man who is free from uncleanness, and does not come to observe it on occasion of its day, so as to bring an acceptable offering before the Lord, and to eat and to drink before the Lord on the day of its festival, that man who is clean and close at hand shall be cut off: because he offered not the oblation of the Lord in its appointed season, he shall take the guilt upon himself.
  10. Let the children of Israel come and observe the passover on the day of its fixed time, on the fourteenth day of the first month, between the evenings, from the third part of the day to the third part of the night, for two portions of the day are given to the light, and a third part to the evening.
  11. This is that which the Lord commanded thee that thou shouldst observe it between the evenings.
  12. And it is not permissible to slay it during any period of the light, but during the period bordering on the evening, and let them eat it at the time of the evening, until the third part of the night, and whatever is left over of all its flesh from the third part of the night and onwards, let them burn it with fire.
  13. And they shall not cook it with water, nor shall they eat it raw, but roast on the fire: they shall eat it with diligence, its head with the inwards thereof and its feet they shall roast with fire, and not break any bone thereof; for of the children of Israel no bone shall be crushed.
  14. For this reason the Lord commanded the children of Israel to observe the passover on the day of its fixed time, and they shall not break a bone thereof; for it is a festival day, and a day commanded, and there may be no passing over from day to day, and month to month, but on the day of its festival let it be observed.
  15. And do thou command the children of Israel to observe the passover throughout their days, every year, once a year on the day of its fixed time, and it shall come for a memorial well pleasing before the Lord, and no plague shall come upon them to slay or to smite in that year in which they celebrate the passover in its season in every respect according to His command.
  16. And they shall not eat it outside the sanctuary of the Lord, but before the sanctuary of the Lord, and all the people of the congregation of Israel shall celebrate it in its appointed season.
  17. And every man who has come upon its day shall eat it in the sanctuary of your God before the Lord from twenty years old and upward; for thus is it written and ordained that they should eat it in the sanctuary of the Lord.
  18. And when the children of Israel come into the land which they are to possess, into the land of Canaan, and set up the tabernacle of the Lord in the midst of the land in one of their tribes until the sanctuary of the Lord has been built in the land, let them come and celebrate the passover in the midst of the tabernacle of the Lord, and let them slay it before the Lord from year to year.
  19. And in the days when the house has been built in the name of the Lord in the land of their inheritance, they shall go there and slay the passover in the evening, at sunset, at the third part of the day.
  20. And they shall offer its blood on the threshold of the altar, and shall place its fat on the fire which is upon the altar, and they shall eat its flesh roasted with fire in the court of the house which has been sanctified in the name of the Lord.
  21. And they may not celebrate the passover in their cities, nor in any place save before the tabernacle of the Lord, or before His house where His name hath dwelt; and they shall not go astray from the Lord.
  22. And do thou, Moses, command the children of Israel to observe the ordinances of the passover, as it was commanded unto thee; declare thou unto them every year and the day of its days, and the festival of unleavened bread, that they should eat unleavened bread seven days, (and) that they should observe its festival, and that they bring an oblation every day during those seven days of joy before the Lord on the altar of your God.
  23. For ye celebrated this festival with haste when ye went forth from Egypt till ye entered into the wilderness of Shur; for on the shore of the sea ye completed it.

Our People are traitors and turncoats.  If Foreign troops landed in America, our people in the church would demand for the righteous to be killed.

The Gospel of Nicodemus (Acts of Pontius Pilate) 6 


1 Pilate dismayed by the turbulence of the 
Jews, 5 who demand Barabbas to be re- 
leased, and Christ to be crucified. 9 Pil- 
ate warmly expostulates with them, 20 
washes his hands of Christ's blood, 23 
and sentences him to be whipped and cru- 

THEN Pilate having called together 
Nicodemus, and the fifteen men who 
said that Jesus was not born through 
fornication, said to them, What shall 
I do, seeing there is like to be a tu- 
mult among the people. 

2 They say unto him, We know not; 
let them look to it who raise the tu- 

3 Pilate then called the multitude 
again, and said to them, Ye know 
that ye have a custom, that I should 
release to you one prisoner at the 
feast of the passover: 

4 I have a noted prisoner, a murder- 
er, who is called Barabbas, and Jesus 
who is called Christ, in whom I find 
nothing that deserves death; which 
of them, therefore, have you a mind 
that I should release to you? 

5 They all cry out, and say, Release 
to us Barabbas. 

6 Pilate saith to them, What then 
shall I do with Jesus who is called 

7 They all answer, Let him be cruci- 

8 Again they cry out and say to Pil- 
ate, You are not the friend of 
Caesar, if you release this man; for 
he hath declared that he is the Son 
of God, and a king. But are you in- 
clined that he should be king, and 
not Caesar? 

9 Then Pilate filled with anger said 
to them, Your nation hath always 
been seditious, and you are always 
against those who have been service- 
able to you. 

10 The Jews replied, Who are those 
who have been serviceable to us? 

11 Pilate answered them, Your God 
who delivered you from the hard 
bondage of the Egyptians, and 
brought you over the Red Sea as 
though it had been dry land, and fed 
you in the wilderness with manna 
and the flesh of quails, and brought 
water out of the rock, and gave you 
a law from heaven. 

12 Ye provoked him all ways, and 
desired for yourselves a molten calf, 
and worshipped it, and sacrificed to 
it, and said, These are thy Gods, O 
Israel, which brought thee out of the 
land of Egypt: 

13 On account of which your God 
was inclined to destroy you; but 
Moses interceded for you, and your 
God heard him, and forgave your 

14 Afterwards ye were enraged 
against, and would have killed your 
prophets, Moses and Aaron, when 
they fled to the tabernacle, and ye 
were always murmuring against God 
and his prophets. 

15 And arising from his judgment 
seat, he would have gone out; but 
the Jews all cried out, "We acknow- 

ledge Caesar to be king, and not Je- 

16 Whereas this person, as soon as 
he was born, the wise men came and 
offered gifts unto him; which when 
Herod heard, he was exceedingly 
troubled, and would have killed him: 

17 When his father knew this, he 
fled with him and his mother Mary 
into Egypt. Herod, when he heard he 
was born, would have slain him; and 
accordingly sent and slew all the 
children which were in Bethlehem, 
and in all the coasts thereof, from 
two years old and under. 

18 When Pilate heard this account, 
he was afraid; and commanding si- 
lence among the people, who made a 
noise, he said to Jesus, Art thou 
therefore a king? 

19 All the Jews replied to Pilate, he 
is the very person whom Herod 
sought to have slain. 

20 Then Pilate taking water, washed 
his hands before the people and said, 
I am innocent of the blood of this 
just person; look ye to it. 

21 The Jews answered and said, His 
blood be upon us and our children. 

22 Then Pilate commanded Jesus to 
be brought before him, and spake to 
him in the following words; 

23 Thy own nation hath charged 
thee as making thyself a king; where- 
fore I, Pilate, sentence thee to be 
whipped according to the laws of 
former governors; and that thou be 
first bound, then hanged upon a 
cross in that place where thou art 
now a prisoner; and also two crimin- 
als with thee, whose names are Di- 
mas and Gestas.
