Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
1 Corinthians 5:8 (KJV)
Not with old leaven – Today is the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It’s a High Sabbath today, and I’d like to look back on this holy day in regards to leaven and yeast. Continue reading “Not with Old Leaven”
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Matthew 27:46 (KJV)
Eli – Do you want to know why your translation of the Bible is not completely reliable? Compare this verse with Mark 15:34. Continue reading “The Proof is in the Confusion”
Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
Exodus 8:21 (KJV)
Swarms of flies – We’ve read this story so many times as a child, and maybe even as an adult, that we could probably list the 10 plagues by memory. Continue reading “A Mixture of Interpretations”
Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
Deuteronomy 16:1 (KJV)
Abib -It might surprise you that this word is not the name of the month. The word abib or aviv means a stage of barley growth. YHWH doesn’t give the months names, but identifies them by their season. In the month where the barley reaches the abib state of growth is when the year begins and when we observe Passover. It’s a requirement to understand agriculture if we’re to understand God’s holy days. Continue reading “Month of Abib”
There’s always discussion about when Yeshua actually died during Passover. Some of the biggest questions I’ve encountered do with the day of His death more than anything else. Some claim that He ate the Passover with His disciples as it mentions in Luke 22, and others say it was the night before Passover that He ate claiming that He had to have died on the Passover while the other sheep were being slaughtered in order to be the Passover Lamb that Paul speaks about.

And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
Exodus 12:22 (KJV)
Bason – Have you ever heard of a Threshold Covenant? Not many have. Our culture is so far removed that when reading simple words like “bason” we completely overlook the implication of what is actually happening. Passover is approaching on the 14th and we’ll be remembering a time in which YHWH saved Israel through His grace. But very few of us realize that YHWH is establishing a Threshold Covenant with His people. Continue reading “Threshold Covenant”
