                       THE DIET OF JOHN

 

 

                                   * * * *

 

Most people have read The Essene Gospel of Peace book one, yet many are unaware of the The Healing God Spell of Saint John which is the full version of the text. There is also the Samaritan order's Spanish version. I compared all three to see what really was the diet of John.

 

 

DR. LOVEWISDOM'S VERSION:

Then one of the disciples, knowing it troubled many, brought up the question, “Master, if it is forbidden to eat animal flesh as a food, what should we eat?”

The Christ responded: “OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS SAID, “BEHOLD I HAVE GIVEN YOU EVERY KIND OF GRASS THAT GROWS IN THE FIELDS, EVERY HERB, ALL GREEN PLANTS AND VEGETABLES THAT GROW IN THE FARMS, GARDENS, AND EVERY KIND OF FRUIT THAT GROWS IN YOUR ORCHARDS OR GROVES FROM WHICH TO SELECT YOUR FOOD, BESIDE THE MILK OF YOUR ANIMALS, FOR THE USE OF ITS CULTURED PRODUCT.

Eat not flesh and blood that lives in animals; it is Sacred, to be respected, for to do so trespasses against the Supreme Law that “THOU SHALT NOT KILL!”

 

                                         * * * *

 

THE SAMARITAN ORDER SPANISH VERSION:

Entonces un discipulo pregunto: "Maestro, si prohibes comer la carne como alimento, que comeremos? Jesus respondio: El padre celestial, ha dicho: Os doy toda clase de hierba que crece en el campo, todas las verduras y legumbres que producen vuestras huertas, y tambien toda fruta de vuestras arboledas, para que os sirvan de alimento, ademas, la leche de vuestros animales y todos los subproductos y derivados de la misma."

 

Spanish to English translation:                                          

Therefore a disciple asked: "Master, if you prohibit eating meat as a food, what should we eat? Jesus replied: the Heavenly Father, has said: I give you all kinds of grass that grow in the field, all green leafy vegetables and green vegetables that grow in your gardens, also any fruit that grows in your fruit grove, can be used as a source of food, in addition, the milk of your animals and all the by-products and derivatives of the same.

 

(note: hierba includes also herbs and weeds Collins Dictionary)

 

(note: legumbres secas means dried pulses (dried beans), whereas legumbres verdes means fresh green vegetables like zucchini, broccoli, celery etc. Verduras is translated as greens like lettuce, spinach and cabbage. Collins Dictionary)

 

(note: By-products and derivatives of milk would include cottage cheese, cheese, yogurt, kefir, butter, butter oil or ghee and cream cheese.)

 

In the Lovewisdom translation it says, "the milk of your animals, for the use of its cultured product." This implies only cultured milk and not raw, fresh milk is to be consumed. Raw, warm milk right from the cow was used to extract a huge tapeworm and was considered the favorite food of satan.

 

Most people who have problems with milk is due to drinking it in its fluid uncultured form either raw or pasteurized. When fluid milk is cultured as cheese, cottage cheese, low acid-low lactic acid yogurt, sour cream, cream, butter and butter oil or ghee there are usually no problems with indigestion or sinus blocking, earaches and phlegm in the throat. Drinking fluid milk without first being cultured is not part of the diet of John.

 

No mention is made of sprouts only vegetable greens and no mention is made of nuts, seeds, grains or beans in their raw or sprouted form. This is very important because why is a recipe for sprouted grain bread included if it's not in the allowed diet?

DR. SZEKELY'S VERSION:

"Wherefore, prepare and eat all fruits of trees, and all grasses of the fields, and all milk of beasts good for eating. For all these are fed and ripened by the fire of life; all are the gift of the angels of our Earthly Mother."                                                                                          

 

Grasses is used instead of green vegetables and herbs.  

AND

"So eat always from the table of God: the fruits of the trees, the grain and grasses of the field, the milk of beasts, and the honey of bees." 

 

Grain is mentioned here, but not in the other two translations. The Spanish version does contain the recipe for sprouted bread as does the Szekely version but Dr. Lovewisdom held that it was an interpolation or addition to the original since it is known John ate no grain bread only eating carob "bread".

 

The calcium to phosphorus ratio of sprouted wheat is 7 parts phosphorus to 1 part calcium which demineralizes your teeth and bones and is therefore an unhealthy food. see phytic acid-calcium/phosphorus page

 

AND

"Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth,and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is breath of life, I give every green herb for meat.

 

Also the milk of every thing that moveth and liveth upon earth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given unto them, so I give their milk unto you. But flesh, and the blood which quickens it, shall ye not eat."

 

Herb bearing seed is confusing and is found also in the Bible's Genesis chapter which is where this passage came from. The other two translations do not mention herbs bearing seed, so there is no confusion as to whether seeds are to be eaten.

 

The evidence from the above translations is clear; sprouts, nuts, seeds, grains, sprouted grains and beans are not the diet prescribed by John.

 

                                         * * * *

 

The Diet of John, as deduced by inspection of the above three translations was, in the order they were given;

a. Raw, uncooked, fresh greens (lettuce, spinach, cabbage), green vegetables (celery, broccoli, zucchini etc.), root vegetables (carrots, beets, radishes), grasses (wheat grass juice or chewed, barley grass, common green grass) also wild vegetables or "weeds" like dandelion greens and purslane and cultivated herbs like parsley and cilantro. No sprouts, sprouted grains, grains, nuts, seeds or beans in any form. 

 

b. Fruits in their fresh form including juice. Carob powder is sweet but not juicy but good mixed with banana or eaten as a whole pod.                      

           

c. Milk, grass-fed, unpasteurized if available, in its cultured form as yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, cheese, butter, sour cream, butter oil (clarified butter or ghee). Eggs are considered a dairy food but are not mentioned in any of the translations.

 

Transitionally cooked vegetables, potatoes and grains are needed to detoxify gradually combined with short fasts using vegetable juice, green grass juice, fruit juice or coconut water.

 

Taoist health principles recommend eating living, raw fruits and vegetables at room temperature or slightly heated or cooked in some cases. Warming fruits and vegetables are needed to aid the digestive process. For example peaches are warming and pineapples are hot but bananas are cold. A complete list is available in the book mentioned below.

 

We recommend the book The Transition Diet (click title to purchase), or in Kindle ebook form, to help you transition to a living foods fruit, vegetable and raw dairy Essene "which literally means Healing" diet. En Español el libro La Dieta Transición (haz click en el titulo para comprar) y en forma de ebook Kindle.

The Diet of John was quite clear in 1996 when Dr. Lovewisdom wrote Vitalogical Hygiene which describes a lacto-vegetarian diet based on fruits, vegetables and cultured milk products.

The confusion began in early 1998 when two strict fruitarians from Spain came to visit Dr. Lovewisdom. They were living on fruit only and claimed it to be the healthiest God-given diet.

Dr. Lovewisdom, inspired by their youthful enthusiasm, did an experiment for 7 months eating just fruit with no vegetables or cultured milk and became sick and weak.
