In today's chaotic and maddening world, we are constantly being bombarde with worldly images and ideas via technology, people, our own carnal thoughts that swirl in and out of our minds. The question we us is where in all this world of confusion and chaos do we find God?

We are today observing the last and seventh day of Unleavened Bread. What is the significance of the number seven since it is used in scripture hundreds of times? How is God expecting us to reach number seven and what does that mean? We learn this by studying God's destruction of Jericho.

As we eat unleavened bread for the next seven days, we are reminded of our deliverance from the clutches of sin and futility just as Israel was delivered from their slavery in Egypt. The bondage of the Israelites in Egypt kept them from obeying God and receiving His blessings.

There are three Passover instructions given in scripture, Ex. 12, Deut. 16, and Luke 22. While all three of these were centered on the same thing, there were changes made in their observance from Ex. 12 to the New Covenant Passover.

As we look to the Passover and the tremendous meaning wrapped up in our observing it and the need for us examining ourselves, I want to discuss one aspect of what that righteousness we seek must look like in us.

Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread are the first two major steps that must take place for anyone during any age to receive salvation. Passover recognizing our acceptance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins.

In Ex. 33:12-14 God told Moses that His presence would go with them and He would give them rest. What does it mean for us to have God's presence we us as we make our journey through the tests and trials of life?

We are embarking on a new year for this world, 2022. A time when mankind wants to look forward with hope of an improving world but that hope is elusive at best. Most will find their lives one of discouragement and emptiness, with little hope of things improving.
