In Messiah’s: “To the law and to the testimony: if they (Catholic/Christians) speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them”. (Isa.8: 20)
Eight days ago was Wednesday, April 08/20 and it marked the memorial of the ancient Hebrew Passover – the killing of the Passover lamb as recorded in Exodus Chpt. 12. It was also the day on which Messiah was crucified and killed, symbolizing our Passover Lamb.
Today, Wednesday, April 15/20, is the last of the 7 days of eating unleavened bread. Like the first day, this day is also an annual high holy day Sabbath – no work or buying and selling. Most Sabbath keeping assemblies and true followers of Messiah will be observing this high holy day Sabbath – the last day of unleavened bread. Continues below pic.
Here is the law (statute) ordained by the Creator-God, the great I AM to be observed for ever. Exodus Chpt.13 verses 15 – 17
15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.
17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.
Here’s the reason for eating unleavened bread for seven days. (Ex.13: 9 – 10)
9 And it shall be to you as a sign on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that the law of the Lord may be in your mouth. For with a strong hand the Lord has brought you out of Egypt. 10 You shall therefore keep this statute at its appointed time from year to year.
In short, the true followers of the Messiah observe these 7 days of Unleavend Bread as did Messiah. These feast days were not abolished/done away with, like the deceived and lawless Catholic/Christian churches teach.
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth – God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & Ps.119: 142)
