The Feast of Unleavened Bread is Here!

The Feast of Unleavened Bread is Here!

So, with that, it’s time to start getting the leaven out of our houses. Yes, the scripture says to do this, in the natural, that no leaven should be found in our homes, and it says that anyone who eats leaven should be cut off from the congregation of Israel (Exodus 12:18-20). But, what does this mean spiritually? What does it mean to get the leaven out of our bodies, our homes on earth?

Coupled with these seven days of no leaven, it is also the Passover meal, the evening of the day (on the 14th) just before the first of Unleavened Bread (the 15th). Where we remember the sacrifice of our Messiah, the True Passover Lamb, and death passes on from us, with the newness of life in Yahusha a.k.a Yah’s Salvation!

So, could it be that this is a time to re-dedicate our lives to Yahuah, and re-examine ourselves, to get the sin (leaven?) out of our bodies? I believe this to be the main focus of this wonderful festival.

Check out what Paul says on the matter in 1 Corinthians:

“Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the entire lump? Therefore cleanse out the old leaven, so that you are a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Messiah our Pĕsaḥ was slaughtered for us. So then let us celebrate the festival, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
Qorintiyim Aleph (1 Corinthians) 5:6-8 (Ts2009)

When Yahusha walked the earth, just before His crucifixion, He ate the Passover meal with His disciples. During that meal, He also made a covenant with them. A covenant that is sealed with His blood, foretold of from the beginning. A marriage covenant, of Yahuah and His people Israel.

“And as they were eating, יהושע took bread, and having blessed, broke and gave it to the taught ones and said, “Take, eat, this is My body.” And taking the cup, and giving thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. “For this is My blood, that of the renewed covenant, which is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins. “But I say to you, I shall certainly not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on till that day when I drink it anew with you in the reign of My Father.”” Mattithyahu (Matthew) 26:26-29 (Ts2009).

Let us enter into this covenant with Him anew, seek Him, and long for His return to us, as we are a bride waiting for the return of the Bridegroom, to come and take us into the place He has prepared for us.

Let us also enjoy this time of Unleavened Bread, and eat it with gladness, as Israel did in 2 Chronicles,

“And the children of Yisra’ĕl who were in Yerushalayim performed the Festival of Matzot seven days with great joy. And the Lĕwites and the priests praised יהוה day by day, with instruments of praise before יהוה.”  Diḇre haYamim Bĕt (2 Chronicles) 30:21.
