Tonight marks the end of Passover, the seven days of unleavened bread that God told us to observe as an everlasting memorial where nobody is supposed to eat anything that contains yeast. Yeast, or leaven, symbolizes sin as unleavened symbolizes God's sinless nature. The Bible only has one definition of sin that most just don't like to know. "Sin IS the transgression of the Law." If the Law has been "done away with" then there is no sin! We are instructed to follow the Biblical rather than our pagan holidays in order to understand just how we are supposed to live in our present moral lives. God's true holidays paint a picture of the perfect world that is coming with Jesus when he returns to earth. No, he will not be following Easter, but he will be commanding all of us to observe the holidays set forth by Him in the Bible.
Most of the world, including Jews, Messianic Jews and seventh-day Christians observe Tonight as the start of Passover, as they follow a lunar, Babylonian inspired calendar. So for those observers... Happy Passover!
Tomorrow is yet another holiday for God's church, it is called The Feast of Unleavened Bread! Then afterwards comes the last spring Holy Day called FIRST FRUITS. That's after the seven days, we call Passover week Starting the day AFTER Passover week on First Fruits, we are to begin counting 50 days to the next big holiday in God's seasonal plan called PENTECOST. On Pentecost, two major events happened. The first was it was on Pentecost that Moses received the TEN COMMANDMENTS from Jesus (The God of the Old Testament) and second, it is the holiday that the New Testament church received the Holy Spirit! Now can you understand better why both events happened on this day? It is because God's Law is still in force today, but in the New Testament, the Law has moved from stone, to our hearts and minds by the power of the Spirit!
When we follow God's seasonal holidays, God's plan becomes simple to see.
