Feast of Unleavened Bread

April 06, 2023 - 12:00am EDT to April 12, 2023 - 12:00am EDT

The Days of Unleavened Bread remind us that with God's help we must remove and avoid all types of sin in all areas of our life. This is the next step in God's plan for humanity. After Passover we must keep the sin out of our lives. When God freed Isreal He said that for seven days they shall eat unleavened bread (Exodus 12:15) and the unleavened bread was from the dough that the Israelites brought out of Egpyt with them (Exodus 12:39). Since they did not have time to allow it to rise the dough was unleavened. When Jesus Christ came to earth he also kept the Feast of Unleavened Bread and explained that the first day and last day would be a holy convocation (Luke 2:41; Matthew 26:17). We must remember that God delivers us from difficulties and from sin in our life if we repent. He did the same for the Israelites when He brought them out of Egypt (Exodus 12:14-16). In the new testement Paul also likens leaven to sin and explains to Corinth that they should get rid of it in our lives (1 Corinthians 5:6-8). We examine ourselves and take these lessons and apply them to our lives through keeping the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
