The Feast of Unleavened Bread

Keith Boyd

Lev 23 feast of Passover starts in the evening of the 14th, Unleavened bread the next day
No yeast allowed anywhere in the country for 7 days. Why? The nature of yeast- the power to effect the whole. Symbolically- Sin. One little white lie, grows to another bigger lie. Soon it effects you whole being. Lust, greed, etc. works the same way.
In a Jewish house, the father would take a candle at twilight and search the house to make sure there was no yeast in the house.
On the 14th God redeems you, on the 15th God calls you to sanctification.
Is 53:4 Jesus was crushed pierced wounded striped for our salvation. Even the matzo bread pictures that.
Ps 16 David prophesies about the Holy One -he will not decay.
Jesus proved that he was yeastless- sinless.
1 Cor 5:7 Get rid of the old yeast. Jesus was sacrificed on the 14th and He is the unleavened bread. It is now the 15th -get rid of corruption and sin in your life. We got work to do- Clean house. We can't clean on our own power. We need the light of the Word of God to help us find the sin. So we can clean up. Get rid of the yeast of malice, and wickedness. Paul was specific. Get surgical and clean up. Deal with the larger wickedness as well, so the specifics don't come back. It's now the 15th so move on, don't stay in Egypt.
Church Deacon asked the boys class- why do people call me a Christian? Probably because they don't know you.
Keep the feasts lest you be cut off
Let's clean house right now. God is faithful and just (because he punished our sins on the 14th) and is ready to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness
I surrender all to you
Amazing Grace My chains are gone I've been set free my God my Savior has ransomed me And like a flood his mercy reigns. And God who called me here below will be forever mine.
