The Celebration of the Feast of Unleavened Bread 2017

It’s a party! That’s right, the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a feast, festival, fiesta of the Lord, and it is a feast of true celebratory nature. This feast may appear only to be a “Jewish” celebration, but if we peer in a bit closer, we just will find that is not the case at all.

Why don’t we begin this with the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the celebration of the feast of unleavened bread, here in 2017.

Who and What?

The who and the what of this feast is very simple as it is biblically arranged.

Who?

The Lord and His people. This day belongs to the Lord, our God and is for His people. Who does His people cover? Whoever considers him or herself the Lord’s, that is who belong in the “who” part of this feast, and all of the Lord’s feasts for that matter.

What?

It is the feast or festival of Unleavened Bread. It is a commanded fiesta for all people of God (not just the House of Jacob) to partake in.

When?

This Feast of the Lord always takes place right after the Lord’s Passover.

In the 23rd chapter of Leviticus, the Lord God outlined all of His commanded festivals. In the month Abib, typically late March early April on the Gregorian calendar, on the 14th day of the month (Abib), is the Lord’s Passover.

Directly after the Passover, on the 15th day, is the Lord’s Feast of Unleavened Bread, for seven full glorifying days!

Where?

Conventionally, the Lord’s feasts take place everywhere the Lord chooses to place His name. However, when the children of Israel were in their own land, governed by their own kings and priests, they kept the feast in Jerusalem.

No, they didn’t pile up into one big synagogue, but into different synagogues throughout Jerusalem as families fit throughout. Sometimes they ate and celebrated together in private homes.

Why?

The big WHY??!!

The why has two-parts; a natural and spiritual. First the natural why.

The natural why is based on the children of Israel’s release from bondage in Egypt. Moses explained it in Exodus chapter 13. He told the children of Israel to remember this day in the month of Abib.

It was a day when the Lord used His power to deliver the children of Israel out of Egypt. They left before the bread they were baking for the passover could rise.

When they were delivered out of Egypt, the Lord commanded they eat bread without yeast or leaven for seven days. The first and seventh day of this week long feast are High Sabbath Days. Parents were, and are, suppose to explain to their children that this was done because the Lord brought them out of Egypt.

They were ordered to celebrate this feast every year as a sign to their children and to others that they belong to the Lord. Children of Israel from the house of Jacob or not, are included and invited to partake in this feast. If anyone consider themselves a child or steward of the Lord, this feast is for them.

Why Part-2

The second part why is the spiritual. The spiritual why is because the Lord God delivered all mankind from unrighteousness and sin. The Lord delivered us from darkness and bondage we were once held under to satan.

The Lord delivered mankind by passing over our sins, and bringing us out of darkness into His marvelous Light (knowledge). Therefore, we are commanded to abstain from leaven, which spiritually represents sin and unrighteousness.

Did you see that?

Jesus Christ, our Passover, passed over our past sins and unrighteousness, and told us to be sin-free  in those seven days. In this period of time, the Lord commands we walk in righteousness, in love, obedience, faith, and charity.

We are commanded to walk perfect before God, for the seven days God has given mankind to exist in this physical flesh and blood body. The use of bread is to make the analogy or the representation of the big spiritual picture.

How?

How do we keep this Feast Day. As mentioned earlier, in righteousness, in full reverence, in joyfulness, and in love and charity. If you are part of an organization or community that adheres to this festival of the Lord, join them.

If not, search online for an organization that practices and keeps the Lord’s annual festivals or feast day near you. These are also known as High Sabbaths to the Lord. If you’re unable to keep these days for any reason, remember, it is a spiritual thing first.

Keep it in and on your mind, then with your family; you can have a mini feast in your house, until you’re able to express the spirit in the physical form in a congregation or organization, or community that keeps the Lord’s Sabbath Days.

God bless and be joyful because the Lord has redeemed us with His blood, and for the next seven days, we are going to rejoice and be glad in it, in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
