     We partake of the bread, wine, and foot washing shortly after the start of the 14th of Abib (The same time Jesus partook the bread/wine with His disciples--the same night in which He was betrayed). We are aware that Passover is one of those times of diversities amongst the brethren:
  • Some are convinced that the partaking of unleavened bread, wine, and footwashing should all take place on the beginning of the 14th of Abib (some, more specifically, believe it must take place between sunset and dark when the 14th begins)
  • Some are just as convinced that the unleavened bread, wine, and footwashing should take place at 3 p.m. as the 14th of Abib is drawing to a close.
  • Some are likewise convinced that this observation should take place as the 15th begins (the evening portion of the 15th).
     These diverse understandings of Scripture should not keep us from assembling together for the Days of Unleavens, brethren. In past years, we had some brethren who gathered with us who partook of the Passover at a different time than others. There was no problems, no uproar, and no great disharmony due to this. We believe that the same harmony can, and will, prevail this year as we all come together to keep the Feast unto our Heavenly Father and His Messiah!

    On the evening of Abib 15, you are also invited to a memorial 'night to be much remembered' dinner where we enjoy a communal meal together in our home.

     Services will be held every day at 12:45 PM for the Feast Of Unleavens, beginning the afternoon of the first holy day and continuing to the consummation of the Feast with the last holy day. Be sure to let us know if you plan to attend with us.

The Passover: [This is a memorial day.]

Leviticus 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S Passover.

     After being set aside on the 10th day and examined by the religious leaders, the spotless lamb (of the first year) was sacrificed, on 14th day of the first month of the year, to redeem the first-born of Israel providing deliverance from certain death [Exodus 12]. Those houses that bore the blood of the lamb were passed over by the death angel [Exodus 12:23].

     Joshua led the people into the Land in Joshua 4:19 on the 10th of the month (setting aside of the Lamb) and circumcised the children of Israel [Josh 5]; Moses, representing the law, could not lead the people into the promised land, but Joshua ("Joshua" means Salvation and is the Hebrew form of the name "Jesus") the son of Nun ("Nun" means "eternal") led them in. This antetype shows that the law couldn't save us (lead us into the promised land) but Jesus, the Son of the Eternal, can and He circumcises our hearts and leads us in.

     Compare the other types: Christ, the sinless Lamb of God [John 1:29,36], was sacrificed for our sins on 14th of the month (Passover) [I Cor 5:7]. He is the First-born of many brothers [Rom. 8:29], provides deliverance from "the second death" for the first born of the church [Rev 20:6] who bear have the blood of Christ covering them [I Cor 10:16; I Pet 1:18,19; Rev 1:5]; Jesus also was examined by the religious leaders and was found without blemish [Luke 23:14,15, 22]. Passover is an antetype of the Day of Atonement where only the "firstborn" (first resurrection) are atoned for at this time.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread: [The first and last days of this feast are "annual Sabbaths" or Holy Days]

Leviticus 23:6-9 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

     Israel's exodus from bondage of Egypt; they had to sanctify the firstborn and all had to put out all leaven and eat unleavened bread [Ex 13:1-10]; came to a point later where they had to be 'baptized' under the waters of the Red Sea [Exodus 14; I Corinthians 10:1,2], then continue in the leaving behind of the lifestyles they had in Egypt. We notice and compare that Jesus is the "Bread of Life" [John 6:35, 48, 51] without sin [leaven]. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, which in Hebrew, means house of bread. The believers in Christ that take the Passover should then be unleavened [Matthew 26:17, I Corinthians 5:7-8]. The Gospels and Epistles also admonish us numerous times to sin no more and to be perfect.

The WaveSheaf [Elevation Sheaf]:

Leviticus 23:10-12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD.

     The First cut sheaf of the first fruit harvest cycle is elevated [Leviticus 23:10] on the morrow after the weekly Sabbath that occurs during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Compare to the elevation into the prescence of the Father of the resurrected Messiah [John 20:17] , the First of the Firstfruits [I Corinthians 15:20,23], who was also risen to the Father on the morrow after the weekly Sabbath (that is, the first day of the week) that occurs during the Days of Unleavened Bread.[John 20:1,19; Mark 16:19]
