Pesach (Passover) and Unleavened Bread
All of the eternal "High Shabbaths" are designed by the Father YAHUAH to teach those of us with "ears to hear" and "eyes to see" about the "true plan of salvation." All of the High Shabbaths are physical examples of spiritual truths and are not to be followed as legalistic rules and regulations but are to be used as a tool to teach spiritual truths. "One of the greatest testimonies to the greatness of YAHUAH is how His plan for salvation is in the literal history of Israel." As we continue to study the Passover, which will be observed at sundown April 23 and Unleavened Bread, which will be observed from April 24-30, I will attempt to show in Scripture the physical or tangible example, as well as teach the spiritual or intangible lesson on the importance of YAHUAH's feasts. The book of Exodus teaches us how the first pesach as an event occurred: Exodus 12:1-3, vs. 15 And YAHUAH spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 This chodesh (month) shall be unto you the ro`sh (beginning) of chodesh(months): it shall be the ri`shown chodesh (first month) of the shana to you. 3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying in the tenth day of this chodesh they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: 15 Seven days shall you 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, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. YAHUAH had to teach the children of Israel His calendar. He speaks to Moses and tells him that this month will be the beginning of months and the first month of the year to you. Although Exodus teaches us how the Passover as an event occurred, it does not necessarily teach us how to observe the Pesach as it has been instituted, as a Remembrance. We will later study how to implement this event as a memorial.
In the Hope of YAHUSHA MashaYAH,
