The Law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming – not the realities themselves.
- Hebrews 10:1
The Feast of Unleavened Bread
The LORD commanded all Israel to celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread from Passover which was the fourteenth day of the first month, Abib, until the 21st, (seven days). On the first day, they were to remove all the yeast from the houses. They were to bake and eat bread without yeast throughout the Feast. Passover celebrates their deliverance from Egypt and the removal of yeast signifies their deliverance from the bondage of slavery. This was to be a sign on their hand and a reminder on their foreheads and is to be celebrated year after year so that their children will know that the LORD delivered Israel with a mighty hand from their bondage in Egypt (Ex 12:18-20; 13:6-10).
Two days after Passover, they were also commanded to celebrate the Day of Firstfruits and the first part of their harvest was to be given as a wave offering to the LORD which signifies that the rest of the harvest will follow.
YESHUA was born in Bethlehem, meaning House of Bread. YESHUA is the Unleavened Bread that came down from heaven (Jn 6:38). YESHUA said, “Anyone who eats this bread will live forever!”(Jn 6:51). Yeast represents sin in our lives and YESHUA came to take away the sins that kill us. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is celebrated for seven days. Seven is a number of completion, just as ADONAI ELOHIM created the world in seven days, YESHUA completed the cleansing of sin from our lives. All believers are made complete in YESHUA alone, our Unleavend Bread.
Two days after Passover, YESHUA rose from the grave and became the firstfruit among all the children of ADONAI. The grave could not hold Him. YESHUA had the power to conquer death and he will resurrect all of ADONAI’s children when that Day comes. In effect, all believers have given all their graves to YESHUA!
