Feast of Unleavened Bread, Remembering not to accept false doctrine.

Tonight at sundown, the #Christian Feast of Unleavened Bread begins

When:  On the fifteenth day of the first month, for seven days.  No ordinary work can be done on the first and last days of this feast since they are Sabbath days. See Solar Calendar

Historically:  The Israelites were to remove all yeast or leaven from their homes before the Feast of Unleavened breaded started and it was to be kept from the home until the feast was completed.  They were to eat unleavened bread for seven days in remembrance of being taken out of bondage in Egypt. 

Jesus fulfilled this feast since he died during the feast of unleavened bread.  He had warned “Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees” (Matt 16:6).  Jesus also warned us not to hold to the traditions of men “ You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men." (Mark 7:8) The Apostles celebrated this feast after Jesus was crucified and Paul stated “celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corth 5:8)  During these days, the Judahites, Benjamites and Levities they were under the rule of King Herod an Edomite, Pharisees (political group) and Sadducees (a sect of the Jews).

Today we are to celebrate the Feast of Unleavened bread for seven days.  We are to eat unleavened bread each day in remembrance of the new covenant and we are also to remember not accept false teachings of the Pharisees and today this would include the false doctrine of the 501.3 churches and the traditions of men that teach us to celebrate pagan holidays instead of the holy feast days the bible commands us to celebrate.  The first and last days are Sabbaths so we are to do no work on these days.  The unleavened bread could include crackers or tortillas.  We must remember to remove all yeast type products from our home prior to this day.  Today, true bible believing Christians, are not ruling American anymore -  So I wonder if Jesus would say today, beware of the leaven of the Democrats, Republicans, and news reporters.  When you put yeast in the ingredients to make bread the bread grows – this is to remind us that lies and false teachings can grow and get bigger and bigger.
